I just had an interesting revelation about past lives (or other lives) as I sometimes like to call them, but did not quite have the time to start and monitor a whole new discussion about it. I thought I post it here, for whatever it is worth.
In bits and pieces certain past lives can become known to us. One morning I woke with a name coming to me. The reason I took notice is that I am not a left brained individual, and I am hard pressed to remember names of people I need to. This was a name I did not recognize nor was I sure how to spell it.
So, I also got a clue (or knowing) that the person's name had to do with space or space travel. I thought, there is no way I am going to remember this later, so I went to my computer in the early hours of the morning to jot down the name. I looked it up later, and I found that there was a similar sounding name in space travel, although I did not get the spelling exactly right. I wrote it down how it sounded to me when it was communicated to me.
I spent a little time looking into the life of this famous person, and for the first time I became aware how many similarities this person and I had. Today, as I was doing mundane tasks, like putting clean towels back on the shelf, it came to me how often I shouted a certain thing at my son's soccer game, that was almost one and the same word as the space ship this past life of mine had died in. As if I was slowly being reminded of who I was. Clues were coming, but until sufficient background stuff comes through, the revelation would not be as meaningful. Or one might just brush off the revelation of that past life as: "nah... I just wish I would have been that person" rather than, now I can see how I could have been that person, because there is all this stuff that lined up soooooo similarly for me that it is uncanny.
Then I thought, if there is no time, we just perceive it as there is, then this may not even be a past life of mine but I am living the life before that space accident. I may be living another probability that had not yet come to that point of opportunity this person had to actually make it onto that space vehicle.
Another interesting thing was, how often I thought the same exact thought as in documentaries this person was heard saying/thinking, such as: I don't think this opportunity would open up to me, but if they were taking blah blah blah's into space, I would definitely volunteer. I would be so excited that that would overshadow any possible fear involved in the venture.
Well, I am just rambling here. However, past life information comes to us in so many ways, we are just not awake enough to see it for what it is. It is in the things we say, the things we do, the people that turn up in our lives and so on.
