Past Life Experience- Colonial America?


I was walking to a friend's house one night last winter. It was pretty late, around 10:30, and I was by myself. I was just walking, thinking about things, when I had what I am reluctant to call a flashback.

It almost felt as if I had gone back in time, if that makes sense. One second I was walking, and the next I was walking down a cobblestone street. I was wearing a corset over a shift, a long skirt, and a thin cloak. I'd place it around the late 1700s. I was shivering and walking by myself, and I felt like I was trying to find someone or something. I had a goal.

The reason I'm hesitant to call it a flashback is that it wasn't just something I thought of or remembered, it was hyperrealistic and I felt as if it actually happened.

Realtime it was probably only 4-5 seconds, so calling it a flash is still accurate. I don't even think I had stopped walking in the time it took. But it was just so detailed, so real. I can remember every part of it, and if you asked me I could probably paint it.

What I'm wondering is if what I experienced could have had something to do with a past life.

I've always been drawn to anything involving colonial America, so much so that I've recently earned a position at my local historical society. I'm not positive I was in America because there were no indications as to my location, but something tells me I was in New England.

I can sometimes see auras and I have some other basic psychic abilities (I think I might be empathic, and I've had a couple experiences with seeing and hearing spirits), so it doesn't seem too far off base to me that I would have some sort of connection to my past lives. This moment has somewhat haunted me for a while, because I felt as if I was living it. Is it possible that I actually have, in the past?

It could very well be that it was a past life. I've experienced many flashes and dreams. Unfortunately in my case it usually includes how I've died. Even after coming back to reality I will feel nearly dead. I'm still figuring out my situation, but I'd recommend past life meditation as well.

Until very recently I kept a dream journal. I only stopped because I couldn't remember any dreams to write down, but it's been awhile since I've looked through it. I'll definitely check to see if I have anything that could potentially be connected.
I've tried meditating and clearing my mind to be open to any experiences, but so far not much has happened. As for hypnosis, that makes me too nervous. Perhaps there's some way I can remember my dreams better.

Depending on the individual, there are many incarnations.

I understand what you mean: seeing/knowing and feeling
In Nano seconds.
I had that occurs when at work, and I could feel the
Bull it in my head. The strange thing is my birth mark is there on the scalp under my hair.

So I agree it was a past life for you. The benefit is understanding the positive or neg of that life time and move forward.

Curious would you happen to know anymore about it? Such as any new dreams? If not have you tried past life hypnosis regression?
