      I can see people's...animal form?

      This started happening maybe..1-2 years ago. This might not make a lot of sense but i'll try to describe it as best as I can. Whenever I look at a person's face I can instantly tell what kind of animal they are (maybe in a past life?). An image of an animal just pops into my head. With some people I have to concentrate really hard to figure out what animal they are. I can do this with everyone EXCEPT myself. It's really weird. I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but if it does I would really like some insight to why I can do this..is this some sort of ability or is it all in my head? o.o

      Do you ever get images of animals you don't know what to call?

      The same thing happens to me. Except I always see that one animal...what's it called...ah! It's called a human.

      Have you ever considered it being some kind of neurological condition similar to synesthesia?

      Here is one possability, with the growth in human population, I am seeing more human bodies that have been given to 'fist time human' souls. The souls have be other things, such as a shark or cat. Me and my wife both can sometime tell the soul in someone was recently another animal. It comes out in their charector too.
      I never see an image, but some how I sense they were a cow.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I don't even think it's synesthesia. That's more of a thing for when you can see/hear things vividly, in a hallucinatory kind of way. It sounds like a thought just comes into your mind; something you've been doing as a habit, that is now kind of an unconscious process. I would say it's similar to when you see a spider web and automatically shudder, because the thought of getting it all over your face is unpleasant. Except instead of automatically thinking about how much it would suck to get the spider web on your face, you think of an animal automatically. This might be driven by what the person looks like (so if they have big, piercing eyes, they might be a snake, or if they have kind of a tired-looking, long face, they might be a donkey).
