      Past life experiences during lucid dreams

      Hi,
      I wanted to ask how / if I can experience past life memories during dreams?

      I was talking to a person once and for some reason I was talking to him in German for ten to twenty minutes. I don't even know German and have never read books / taken classes for it. This was most likely from my super / subconscious and might have been from a past life.

      I was reading the book "the phase" by Micheal Raduga. And the night before I practiced the indirect techniques (even though he says not to the night before). And this morning I had five lucid dreams. I forgot three of them (but still know the theme of it) but remembered the other two.

      Can someone give me really good tips?

      Thanks.

      I've had several extremely lucid dreams of being German and living in the 1930's or earlier. In my case, I'm pretty sure these aren't past lives. Normally, when I dream, the characters are projections of aspects of people I know in waking life, but they're not projected in the same way or in the same combinations. So the people seem strikingly real and unique, and distinct from any people I know, but the ingredients are the same. Sometimes in such a dream I can learn true details from the life of an actual person, so there is an actual relationship between the imagined person and the real person. But the imagined people aren't real people, and they aren't me. I think I can do that with dead people as well as with people who are alive. So I think my 'past life' type experiences are like that also. They contain true elements from the past, inherited karma so to speak, but those people aren't actually 'me' or 'mine'. I don't think any historical figure is exactly me, what I call 'me' can only exist in present circumstances, and any other time will be at least in part someone else. And I don't think the connections between myself and past people that I'm spiritually related to are exclusive chains. I think that to the limited extent that we have 'past lives', multiple people can share identity with the same past individual, in different ways. I think that if there's an actual exclusive me that reincarnates, it doesn't do that in the historical world, it reincarnates on other worlds that in some ways don't very much resemble ours. I think the assertions of most if not all people who talk about 'past lives' can't be trusted, because they aren't very self-critical and don't ask themselves these kinds of questions. Mostly I don't understand about past lives, but I think I have more knowledge than most if not all of the people who write books about it, because the more honest and objective people know that they don't understand enough to fill a book on the subject, in my opinion.

      In one dream I was a German businessman who had some kind of physical injury or handicap and owned several pianos. The most remarkable thing about the dream to me was that his basic motivations were different from mine. It was very strange to be another person like that, and realize that other people don't necessarily feel the same way or want things for the same kinds of reasons.

      In another German dream I was a soldier, unhappy because we'd just lost the war. In another I was a gangster and political agitator who had a couple of my own people killed, for reasons that seemed unavoidable at the time. That dream had a tie-in with something that happened to a colleague later in my real life, which freaked me out a bit, and which I still don't totally understand.

      I hope that helps a little.

      Thanks,
      So you have past life experiences but they're just the experience of random people / people who you aren't. Did you learn German from that (or those dreams) dream? Or did you already know how to speak German?

      You or anyone else can give me info / advice.

      Thanks.

      When people say 'past life experiences' they usually mean that the experiences are memories of events that occurred in the past. And if some verifiable knowledge is gained through the experience, that is usually taken as validation of the accuracy of the memory. To me that doesn't follow at all. I have gained verifiable facts from dreams, which proves that I'm psychic and/or deeply delusional (I don't think I'm delusional), but I still think the dreams are mostly fictional. They're representations of thoughts and feelings, and the thoughts and feelings are real, but they are not accurate representations of events.

      There was no speaking in the German dreams I mentioned. There is very rarely speaking in any of my dreams. Had I learned German from dreams, that would tell me that my mind isn't completely isolated from the minds of others who speak German, but I don't think it would tell me anything about past lives.

      Most people who are alive now have apparently not been reincarnating over an over as humans in our world, since there are so many more people alive now than before. If you look at this plot, for instance, and consider the area under the curve, a fairly large portion of the people who have ever lived on earth are alive now.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_...tion_curve.svg

      (One neat thing about DNA is that it contains a history of past inheritance, so a lot of things that previously were known only through census records and archeology can now be confirmed from DNA analysis. For example, if a population crashes due to a plague or some other problem, the genetic bottleneck is still visible later, and the length of time since it happened can be estimated. So although estimates of world population aren't completely accurate, a variety of sources of information generally say the same thing.)

      I think we inherit karma from both humans and animals. I think a human doesn't reincarnate as a single animal, because no other animal can capture the full essence of a human. But the desires and experiences of multiple animals together have tie-ins with the desires and experiences which a person may have later.

      Although I don't think my German dreams are past lives, I think they do have some relevance to my current life which I mostly don't understand.

      If it is a past life memory and you find yourself in the same situation could you get some verifiable information (such as exactly where you are, dates, or your name)??

      One person I have spoken to who found out her name in a past life told me that she went and found her own grave from that life and confirmed everything she had been told. That wasn't from lucid dreaming by the way, she is clairvoyant and got the info from a spirit guide.
      I got lucid, so no more silly signature.

      If I were a spirit guide, looking for love and attention, getting some information off of a headstone or out of an encyclopedia or other source and psychically relaying it would be much, much easier than identifying, understanding, and explaining a person's true spiritual heritage. And spirits are like that in my experience, if you want to believe something, eventually a guide will appear and tell you whatever you want. I'm not saying your friend's past life story wasn't authentic, since I have no knowledge of that. But I think the evidence you described doesn't imply anything about that either.

      I suspect that in my case, the dreams were partially about reoccurring karma, but the recurrence is not in my individual historical past in this world. I create a dream set in the past which tells a similar story, because that is the best way I know how to illustrate the 'recurring karma' feeling, since I don't know a better way to explain it, since I don't know how karma and identity and multiple-universes actually work. A reason I think its about recurring karma, is recently a couple of things have happened which follow a similar pattern that is in a couple of the dreams, and one of them had a symbolic tie-in to connect it to the dreams.
