Past Life in Spain

 

In 1996, I was practicing meditation on a daily basis, at a friend's spiritual center. We had settled in our seats and said our protection prayer. The meditation was guided by the center instructor, a past life regression on this particular evening, and I slipped into a deep meditative state pretty quickly.

I found myself sitting in a cobblestone street, with orange trees down the center of it. There were three story houses on either side, with iron balconies, window boxes spilling red flowers down the walls, people going about their day to day activities. Surprisingly, I realized I was a man! I had luxuriant, long, dark tresses of wavy hair, and was wearing brown velvet pants, a somewhat frilly, pirate style white cotton shirt and a magnificent pair of over-the-knee brown leather boots.

I was an artist, plying my trade in this street of Spain. I was attempting a painting at my small easel when I noticed a figure in the distance, it was my main artistic rival! My higher consciousness recognized this person as my Mother in this life! (My Mother and I are both artists in our current incarnation!) I yelled some profanities (Bastardo! The other participants in the meditation heard me!) at him, whilst hurriedly packing up my materials and rushing off to my sparsely furnished bedsite above my landlords residence.

I then experienced a feeling of time racing forward a couple of years. I saw myself curled in a fetal position on the bare wooden floor, I was very pale and shivering. I was dying, I knew that my crippling fear of being a successful artist was causing me to starve to death. I also had a fear of challenging and striving to be a better artist than my rival, which in my current reality, I never wanted to pick up a paint brush for fear of my Mother's criticism. Hence, I have always been drawing, not painting!

I took longer than usual to fully come out of my meditative state, I was crying quite heavily and very exhausted!

This was probably the most vivid regression I have ever experienced, it also told me a lot about how I see myself, judge myself and procrastinate out of fear! Our higher selves, when we tap into them, know so much that can help us move forward, I am still learning from this particular lesson... Love and Light, Anni

I understand to an extent about past lives, I myself have been having some very odd experiences in the last two days, I mean I've meditated plenty and I've tried to go back to my past lives, but it's not easy for me because they flutter away as fast as they come. Yet I have a new boyfriend and... I feel like I already know him, like I've been with him for an eternity though it's been simply three days. I keep getting flashes of him as an Egyptian prince, a elegant lord and it was even worse today because I feel partially asleep in his arms and I woke up remembering when we where Vikings or something, dressed in furs and we where consummating our marriage, it was the oddest thing. I worry constantly that I'm rushing, that my trust may be miss placed or that the words I feel from my heart trying to tumble out of my lips must be wrong... But it seems to make sense some how just as it was when my gift began... I worry, I wonder... But I think... It's something important just as you're past life recognition.

When you went back you saw yourself starving and yet you couldn't do what you where passionate for because you where criticized, maybe you remembered that so you wouldn't make the same mistake twice.

To anyone that is or was an English major, oops, pianist. I tend to proofread and hate my own mess-ups, but my fingers fly sometimes. I get wordy because it just takes a little time, but the paino and typing thing are like each other and I type too fast. I would love to be an attractive athletic person, but I have fast fingers instead.

Holli - admire your sensitivy and others here. I have a question. To be fair about the piano thing, my teacher moved after a few years. Grew up in a small place. My teacher took a bigger job away. Tried lessons with a few others, but was teaching them how to chord and they asked my mom to stop, feeling guilty. Or maybe embarrassed. Well, I feel like if I tried to write music that I could. My last lesson was at about nine. My time is limited so have never tried. At my small church then, when the regular pianoist was gone, filled in but mostly don't play anymore. When I sleep, my toes wiggle, to the beat of music. My oldest son did this as a baby. What do you "feel" or "see" about this? My time is limited so not sure whether to go there. I sometimes feel like such a pest on this site that it bothers me. Not use to being the needy one so much I guess. Not sure why I spend time here, except I love the wisdom of it and it's comforting to meet others who have the same struggles. Thanks to anyone who chooses to respond.

Hey Holli - read your question a long time ago, just have mixed feelings about past life regression. Several weeks, 3 maybe, bought Bruce Goldberg's book on "Astral Voyages" because he says he has regressed people back. I think it listed others who did this, and one was in NC. I'm in SC so thought of it. Not sure it's good. But, now I can't find the book. Go to a book store and see if there is one in CA. Also, bought the book, "The Idiots Guide..." you know the series, to "Psychic Awareness..." It had a lot of places in the back for CA. I'm curious, but I use to play the piano by ear. Songs on the radio. Then my parents sent me to piano lessons and learned the official stuff. Now I don't play by ear. Need that sheet music.

I found this experience particularly interesting. Thanks. I had an experience of being a Union soldier, male. I was running, injured, and fell, jumped behind bushes. Felt the place between my neck and shoulders and there was blood. Touched it with my fingers. Knew I was dying. Sad at leaving, but tired too. And calm. During the dream, I remembered wondering if it was a real dream or just a dream and was he married, thinking of his children or thinking of his parents. I had a lot of questions. I don't know if this was me or just picking up some cosmic experience of someone else or making it up in my imagination. It felt like a real dream. Seldom go backwards in time. This was a little new to me. I woke up disoriented. The husband was awake and asked me what was going on. I usually try not to freak him out, but was still blurry and told him about it. I'm a southern female so seemed a little odd to be a northern male.

Just in response to your question about meditation, whilst it is preferable initially to go to group sessions, there is nothing stopping you from purchasing a Guided Meditation CD and having a go at it on your own. The only thing I found, that is noticeably different about group is, the energy in the room is usually more intense and you can discuss your experiences face to face afterwards. With doing it on your own, you can go at your own pace.

Hi Hollinor, sounds like a past life episode to me! I find it interesting that once we are out of our bodies, and hovering over them, just how calm our spirits are. I have watched myself die a few times and had many experiences told to me by others, and more often than not, the spirit is observing calmly. Must come with that KNOWING that our higher selves have, an understanding that stuff happens, and we don't need to be afraid...

I had this intense dream that I always wonder about. In it, I found myself and a group of people running away from men with guns, I think they were rifles and not handguns. Anyway, I could feel and taste my fear. They caught up with us and I was shot. I fell to the ground and could not move. Wherever I fell, I was on an incline. As the blood oozed from my body, I felt myself slowly slding down this incline. I knew that I was dying. The more the blood escaped, the dimmer my sight became. It was all dark around the outsides and it was closing in slowly but surely. I could actually feel my life force leaving my body. It was the strangest sensation. Eventually, my sight got darker and darker, and then I woke up. I couldn't tell if I had dreamt about someone else, or was it about me. But the thing of it was, that I somehow felt I was a male. Seeing as how that's not the case with me now, lead me to believe that it could possibly be a memory.

I wonder what I would see if someone put me in a meditative state? I would be very interested to see that, but I have never had the opportunity to do it. Does anyone know of any places in Southern California that offers such sessions?
