Past Lives, Or Crazy Dreams?


Lately I have been having a series of reoccurring dreams. They are all different stories, but they are in the same place with the same people. It is always around 1590's or so, in I think France, Spain, or Italy, in a palace that belongs to my "family". I am an only child, but I my dreams I have an older brother, James, and a little sister, Coralynn. There is also a boy named Alexander, but I can't figure out yet if he was my brother, or my betrothed. The first dream was a set of three different stories. The first was: I was sitting in an old fashioned music room, the kind that they had back then with the instruments and old games, and I was teaching my little sister piano. I am fifteen now, but in my dreams I am around seventeen. In this dream I could see myself from outside of my body, like I was watching from the corner or mid air. Then the next was, I was in a huge ballroom that had checkered marble floors, and a big platform at the front. On the wall above the platform, a building sized portrait hung of my "family". Alexander flickered in and out of it too. In front of the portrait stood my "family". But they were dead. They looked like the strong-channeling spirits that I see, only they looked a bit more solid. Their ball gowns and suits were tattered and torn, and my "mother" looked at me, and I heard clear as day in real life, "don't you remember us, my darling?" then I was warped to the third, which was the creepiest. I stood once again in the music room, but it had been almost destroyed looking. The torn curtains blew in on a breeze from the broken windows, and the tile floor was cracked in places. Where the walls used to be a pinkish orange, they were now almost gray. I stood above the old piano, and when I looked down, bloody fingerprints played 'Mary had a little lamb'. Then that dream ended. I have a keyboard in my room, but I have no clue how to play, but I sat down at it and played the keys that I had seen in my dream, and sure enough note for note, it played Mary had a little lamb. Then I had another dream the other day. I was running with my brother and Alexander through our garden maze. We were laughing, and they were trying to catch me. We exited the maze and came out by a stream, on a path that led to a beautiful marble and bronze gazebo. James caught me around the waist and swung me around to face Alexander, who caught me in a hug. We were all laughing and having fun. I stepped back towards the gazebo, but then, out of the bush of the maze, right behind xander (I called Alexander that for short) came a man, dressed in all black with a hood over his face. He thrust a sword through Alexander's chest, and I watched in horror as he crumpled to the ground. I tried to run forward, but James had a hold of my elbows and was dragging me back to the castle so that we would be safe from the attacker. I was screaming xander's name, and crying, and struggling against my brother, who was also crying. The murderer got away, and then I was brought back to reality. Certain songs bring up these horrid but beautiful memories, and they are always old songs. Since I was little, I have always gotten these memories, that are mine, but not mine. Sometimes they come in short flashes of images, or they come in full blown movie type memories. But the thing is, I am empathetic, and I can also see spirits. I can't communicate with them yet, but I don't know if it's their memories that they're trying to show me, or an overactive imagination. But every day I find myself thinking of Alexander, and of little things that I know about him. He's being pieced together bit by bit, but I don't know who he was to me, or if he was even real. But I miss him. Dreadfully so. I don't know yet if I believe in past lives, because I was raised a devout Baptist, but I almost hope that they do exist, so that I can have some closure of who Alexander was. Please share your thoughts on this, all of them would be helpful. I'm confused, is it past life, spirit's life, or my imagination? Thanks for reading, and I'm sorry that it was so long.

The point I am saying is I had no consious knowledge
That I had this unreasonable expectation on my husband.

With life it is the rough patches that show up
Areas we need to develope. It shows the Spirit-mind
Of the old into this life we still run on some of the
Old life patterns.

Hope this is making sense.

All I can say is past lives are very distinct.
Some of reasons whey they emerge are: to see what
Areas need to be resolved, or accept unconditionally,
And learn to love in this life-time.
Its all about healing and closure!
Also some of this has to do with agreeing to be
With each other again and again in various lives.

I have met someone on this site.
And I have had three dreams:two childhood,
One regarding adult hood when the earth was very young.

I've had past life of my present husband.
We were reversed as he was the woman, and I was the
Man. It just downed on me this week that I have to
Learn that he is human and spirit is the one
That is there for me 24/24. To expect a human to
Understand completely is an impossible task.

I guess I am still leaning in this journey we call life.

I have that too sometimes. I love taking Spanish classes and some kid said something about Spain being extremely beautiful. I almost blurted out "Oh, it is! Especially Barcelona in the spring!" When I thought that, an image of a huge beautiful garden with a large fountain came to mind. I've never been to Spain.

I believe in reincarnations. Sometimes I know too much for a 16 year old. I think a soul survives generations to meet a certain goal or fulfill a duty.

I find the idea of past lives thrilling, but you may not. If you want to learn more, research helps and so does an open mind. Don't be so quick to cast out an idea or write it off. I hope my rambling has helped!

Good luck,

Just doing a preliminary search, I came up with this AlexanderFarnesse, who was the Duke of Parma. Take a look.


Do you feel the death was an assassination or was it a killing by someone for other reasons?

Boy, Colorful, I'd be really surprised if this were not a past life memory.

It seems to be (a) a place/time of strong emotional ties which was (b) destroyed by very traumatic events and you (c) went back to the "physical place" through time, watching it disintegrate.

It would seem that the issues you still feel from that life are still active. I just read or heard recently that the only past lives we remember are those for which we still have some unresolved conflicts. That makes sense to me.

It also makes sense in other ways. I have read that we can go back to time periods in which we have lived, but not to those we have not participated in. Apparently, we can go back for quite some time.

I wouldn't be surprised, either, if Alexander and the others aren't attached to you now--either as guides, or in your life. Is there anyone in "real" life that is as close to you as you felt to Alexander. He is most surely part of your Soul Group.

Have you done internet searches for that time period. I keep thinking Czar Alexander. Of course, we all can't have historically important past lives, but you may find something that resonates with you.

Just do some Google searches for 1590 and the names that you mentioned and/or the countries.

Research / investigation is part of my personality so guides often give me things that I can find out through the Internet. It's unusual, but I use it a lot.

The most important thing about these emotional past life experiences are that they point out current issues.

Do you have issues with loss... Of friends, family? Do you find that you feel abandonment by friends or family? It could manifest in other ways--only you will know.

If so, it points you to resolving those issues, coming to peace with the pain it caused.

Regardless of what your religion teaches, if you feel something strongly, you know best. Spirituality is a personal experience. Each of us have our own experiences of it, and that's all we can truly know.

Good luck with sorting this out. I can tell it would be very disturbing. The detail is unique and extraordinary--pointing to some experience you have actually had. Even if you can't find it documented, I would tend to believe it.

Hope you find peace.

Have you ever thought about trying Meditation?
Meditation is powerful, healing, and helpful with the mind and memories, it is very much possible that you will find your answers If you try mediatating but it could take some time but still try mediating.
Good luck
