    Hello! Is it possible to just dream about a PAST LIFE once? I just had dream years ago, and I couldn'r forget about that vivid dream. Ever.

    No one can really answer that for you; all anyone can do is offer her/his opinion.
    I don't know if reincarnation actually exists/occurs, but if it does then it is my opinion that it may be possible to dream about a past life, whether once or more than once.
    From your question, it seems to me that you may be thinking it's possible to dream about a past life, but only if you do so more than once. If that is what you're thinking, may I ask why? Or if not, may I ask what you are thinking?

    I guess you might dream just one time about a past life but you may be having the same dream regularly yet not recalling it when you wake. Hence it seems like just once.

    Think on that we have no idea how many dreams we may have. We recall some of them but how many is some?

    We may have many dreams and/or the same, recurrent dream but one(s) we don't recall - how could we know?

    Hello everyone. I appreciate all of your replies.

    I just don't think that dreaming about something once already means that you had travelled back into your past. And that is the sole reason as to why I am asking if it is possible. But you do have a point. Dreams are not always remembered.

    Eversince 2011, I couldn't get that dream off of me. It felt as if I floated away from my body--like I was seeing things on another person's body. The emotions I felt during that dream felt very real that I wanted to cry when I woke-up. My chest felt so heavy and painful, and it was as if my soul was slowly slipping towards my body. I literally saw the ceiling. It was hazy, but I felt light headed as I slowly saw the ceiling going further away from me.

    Hello. Thank you for answering. From what I have read, it seems that past lives are reoccurring dreams...? But I think I still lack knowledge about it. I don't know... I just felt like I needed more PROOF to prove that I have indeed dreamed about my past life. I don't want to jump into conclusions.

    I agree and it must remain at least a possibility because there is no certain reason it can be ruled out.

    Others have reported similarly vivid experiences that feel more than just dreams, experiences that remain vivid years later. Quite where you go from there isn't clear but for some it leads to their investigation into the mysteries of life, death and what follows.

    If you're drawn in that direction ALF is a good place to begin an investigation. :)

    Well, for starters, the dream seemed awfully tragic. I woke-up feeling very hurt, and my chest was hurting so bad--you know that feeling when you've lost someone so dear? Like my chest was stabbed hard. It was like someone has squeezed it so hard.

    I get the vividness of what you experienced but in my view nobody can tell you anything definitive. If it was a glimpse of a previous life, maybe even a death, you're still left with what you do with it.

    I don't have any answers I'm afraid.

    You're right ☺ I guess I just wanted someone to share my experience with. I've been keeping it all my life because no one around me would open their minds about a past life experience.

    ALF is a good place to find folk who listen and care. There are other threads here where past life discussions have been held. Maybe some of our members will offer comments that WILL help you where I've been unable to.

    Just an FYI: I went to a great seminar with Karen Noe (www.karennoe.com) this weekend and she said ask whoever we are trying to contact to contact us in a dream before we go to sleep and also ask them to wake us up after so we can remember. I tried it last night and it worked. Several dreams from the love of my life.

    I don't think anyone can tell you for sure what your experience was, but you are more than welcome to share your experience(s) here. Welcome to the forum.

    For a long time, I just had one dream of a past life and I asked all sorts of questions of myself about it. But after a while, I had another one of the same lifetime and then, after another interval, I had a couple of real life experiences connected to that humble girl I'd been in the late 1800's.

    Remembering, for me, was a process. And there's another lifetime that happened right after that one that I've had just one vivid dream about. I just long to know more about it, because the person I was in that lifetime was from a very wealthy family and I might be able to trace her if I just had more information. But who knows? I could dream about her tonight. Or in a decade.

    Would try this one when I have the courage to ☺ Thank you. The last picture that I have seen in my so called past life dream did not end very well. It was so painful for me. It even involved loosing a loved one through murder. It was horrible and sad.

    I see. ☺ Thank you for sharing.

    The dream that I had experienced only happened once. And it was for that reason that I started being doubtful and anxious of what it was about. Through the years, I became so endulged in that dream--I wanted to know more about what really happened. I also realized that there are certain parts of my dream that are currently happening in my present modern day life. I'm curious, but I couldn't take off the fact that someone DIED in my dream. Someone was MURDERED right in front me. And I was to be blamed by a crime that I did not... or probably did. I was feeling hurt, pain, and sadness as I sat on a cold damp stone-floor.

    These are my reasons as to why I'm also afraid and doubtful all these years.

    If people from that lifetime are around you now, it might explain why the dream was allowed to happen. Is it possible to process the negative feelings it left you with by trying to make your situation or your relationship with people better now? I was grateful that I had the information about folks very close to me when I had that single dream of having been the wealthy young woman. The 3 of us had so much karma together and knowing what had happened in the early 1900's gave me insight into both men's personalities. Interestingly, they came back into this lifetime at similar ages--one of them in his late teens and the other in his 50's--as they'd been in my dream. I'd had the dream before meeting them and recognized them both almost immediately, they were so much like their earlier selves in personality.

    I think, looking back, that I handled the difficult period with them in this lifetime a lot better than I had last time around. Then, I committed suicide in my 20's, but this time, though I went through years of severe depression, I refused to end my life and finally got better and had a good life. To me, that's the main reason why I pay a lot of attention to past-life dreams and present day evidence--it can help me to handle the karma better, smarter.

    karma is a trap, which means incarnating on Earth is

    I disagree. It's all a learning experience that makes us stretch and grow. Karma isn't just bad stuff--where did you hear that? It's also amazing, wonderful things that enrich life and bring joy. You're looking at it in a very limited way and seeing only the bad if you think it's "a trap." I'm currently reading one of UK medium Gordon Smith's books and his guides and the departed spirits he contacts for people tell him that a lifetime here is eagerly sought after by souls who want to progress quickly. Earth is just one of many places where souls can enter the world of matter and take submersion courses, but it's a tough one if you choose challenging life plans.

    BTW, the karma I had with those 2 men also included wonderful times and much warmth and laughter. We 3 all grew as a result of just the 2 lifetimes we've spent together (that I've recalled so far) and if we find ourselves together in another life, I'm hopeful that we'll have worked out the worst of the negative stuff and can spend time together having fun. We have a lot in common.

    You are amazing. I have been studying about psychological disorders for a year or two now. I am actually majoring psychology as of today. I respect and absolutely admire you for standing-up and battling against depression, and ended-up finding the will to live this current life that you have.

    I see that you have had several past life dreams already. I had odd dreams, too. But they are not the same with my so called "past life dream". But I did noticed that it had one thing in common: the setting would always have a church or cathedral in it.

    Would you all mind if I share to all who are currently reading this thread, the past life dream that I experienced? ☺ I kept this for a long time, and I had no one to tell it too that would not think of me as someone who makes-up stories or dream about weird things...
