Starting around the age of 16, I have had a handful of dreams only 4 that I am sure are visions of my past lives. They had a different feeling to them than normal dreams did. I have always dreamed in color so that is not what gave me the feeling. First dream at 16 in my dream I was myself at my then friend's house. I watched myself walk through a wall. On the other side I realized I was in a different place. I also noticed that I was me but I was NOT me. My perspective in these dreams is always from inside the body like I am wearing someone's skin. First thing I noticed is that I was a man instead of a woman. I was outside on a sunny day in a desert. My skin was dark and tan, my build muscular. I felt strong and healthy. I was wearing a plain white skirt sandals and a bare chest. I walked into a large stone building but in my mind I knew it was a temple. Inside I walked until I got to a wall with writing on it. It was a bunch of symbols but I understood that it was a calendar. I then stepped through the wall and was again myself in my friend's home. Everything in the dream felt real like I was really there experiencing that moment in time. I could even feel the sun warming my skin, the breeze, and the sand in my toes.
Many years later I met a close friend who is a gifted psychic. We became instant friends our first meeting. It was like we were old friends picking up where we left off. I had never told anyone about my dream in case they thought I was loony. One day she calls me and said she had to tell me about an astral projection experience she had because it had something to do with me. She said she had astrally visited ancient Egypt in the form of a falcon. While she was flying around she saw a man standing near the entrance of a building. She started describing the scene and the man and I realized she was describing my dream to the last detail. She saw up to where I was looking at the calendar but instead of walking through the wall she said I turned my head and made eye contact with her as the falcon. She said I then got startled by the presence of a falcon in my temple studying me so intensely and the vision faded away. She said she didn't know why but she felt she had to tell me about it. So I told her about my dream at 16 and how I felt one of my past lives was in ancient Egypt. She said she believed that I was correct.I'm much stronger with sensing, and feeling things. I do not usually see spirits with my eyes or hear them speak but she does clearly. I have never been able to speak to or see my guides directly. I think they communicate to me in my dreams. Later she was able to contact my guide and speak to her. She said her name is sounds like (Tee-ma-quep-tay). She said something like I was a mortal descendant of the god Amun-Re. I think that is more a reference to my soul's first incarnation being during that period of history in Egypt.
Together my friend and I have shared details from other similar dreams and discovered we have incarnated in at least 3 lifetimes together. We both had dreams about the same event from the perspectives of 2 different people. One as an Inuit (eskimo) I was a toddler lost in a blizzard, she was my mother and rescued me on a dogsled. In another we lived in the period in the U>S with witch paranoia. We were sisters who had been accused of witchcraft due to our psychic abilities. We were chased through the forest at night by an angry mob. By morning we had been captured and were punished by hanging. They hanged us by throwing us off the roof of a barn. These are the only dreams I believe are past life dreams because they all have that unique feeling of living a moment. I am able to recognize myself inside the other person. Has anyone else been shown past life images? What are your experiences and what is it that leads you to believe it is a past life event? I am also very proficient in lucid dreaming and these dreams are very unique to each other. I'm also curious if I somehow astral projected myself back in time to those moments in order to see them while I was asleep but then how would I be in first person perspective? So many questions.
