Memories That Never Happened


At times I will see something, and it will trigger a memory that never occurred. The memories that I remember obviously aren't mine, because it's impossible that it could have happened in my life.

The first time it happened was when I was going over a bridge that was over the ocean. It was at night and it was really dark, because all of the street lights had gone out on that bridge. When I looked out over the water suddenly I remembered standing at the edge before jumping down into the water. It was extremely vivid, I could feel everything- feel the wind pushing at me, the coldness of the water as it hit me, smell the salt in the air. By the time I looked away I had remembered all of it. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but after that I had a dream I was drowning in the ocean under a bridge during the night, when water filled my mouth and throat it all turned to salt until I was choking on salt.

Another example of a memory is when I looked at a picture of snow I could remember walking through it into a forest. I could hear and feel the crunching of the snow under my feet and the stinging numbness of the coldness on my hands as I dug for something in the snow (I don't know what for) , yet I have never actually been in or seen snow in person in my life.

I will also look at things at time that cause me unexplained nostalgia or a strong sense of grief or joy. It occurs mostly around Christmas with a lot of older Christmas songs. They fill me with unexplained sadness, like I'm missing or have lost something. Another one is touching a watch when it's cold. It feels wrong, and I feel that I should hold it tightly until it is warm.

I'm not sure what all of this means or why I have these memories. I don't know if I believe in reincarnation or if it even is that, though I have been told that I have an old soul. Sometimes I can feel memories right out of my grasp, or, (t doesn't make much sense and is hard to explain) at times I feel as if I can feel time itself, like I can hold it in my hands and breath it in for the air feels like it is thick with it.

It sounds like these are memories from your past life/lives. But also possibly, you could be seeing your future.

unfortunately its hard to say. You could be remembering past lives (whether you believe in that or not), you could be picking up on other peoples memories and confusing them as your own, or you dreamed these things, and are pulling up a false deja vu.

I have noticed for some time now that my dreams like to plant false memories in my head. Not anything that is significant, but usually they are memories that pertain to the dream and give it a little backstory. However, they are false memories, because they just come out of the blue without having actually experienced or dreamed them beforehand. For example, let's say I'm dreaming that I'm rowing a boat. Perhaps this dream just started, but suddenly I "remember" having talked to someone before climbing in the boat, telling me that there's a hole in the bottom. All of a sudden, there's a hole in the bottom and it is filling up with water. Now, I know for a fact that the dream started with me IN the boat, so why am I remembering a conversation that took place before I got in? False memories.
