I have something similar happen often. When I lie in bed at night I often try to meditate. And before I drift off to sleep I will see movies of people I don't know or what I call flashcards of people's faces. In the flashcard phase I basically will see a person's face for about 3 seconds and then it flips to the next one until I go through a couple dozen. I have no idea what it means. And when I see the little movie clips as I call them they can be in color in black and white. But I do have to be in a relaxed meditative state in order for either to happen. And I am always observing and not part of what I see.
In your case it sounds like you are interacting with your visions. That sounds more like past life regression.
