When i get lucid, sometimes i like to have conversations with dream characters, ask them what they represent, if they are a product of my imagination, if they can tell me something important, etc, regardless of what i believe what dream characters are. Sometimes i get curious conversations.
On one of those dreams, i'm walking down the street when all of a sudden i feel like i'm dreaming. I'm lucid. I put myself in a meditation pose and i let the dream guide me. I'm flying down the street where i see some people selling clothes. I stop in front of a salesman. He's a middle-aged white man that starts to transform into a black young man. Here's my conversation:
Me- "Do you have something important for me to know?"
Man- "1986. Earthquake."
Me- "1986? Why?"
Man- "Because then you had 80 years-old."
Me- "Is that my past life?"
Man- "Yes."
Me- "Who was i before?"
Man- "King Charles."
Me- "And where was that?"
Man- "Africa. 1920."
I greet him and the dream fades away with me trying not to forget that talk.
In waking reality, i went to the internet to see if that checks with any existing information. I found some similarities of what that man said. I found that there was a Charles Dunbar Burgess King (Man- "King Charles."), he was president of Liberia starting 1920 (Man- "Africa. 1920."). He died in 1961, age 86 (Man- "1986..."). And the picture i saw online kinda looks like him in the dream. And, strangely enough, it has some similarities with some people of my family. I'm a caucasian man from Portugal but i was born in Angola and i have some black people in my family on my mother's side. But he was not family because i asked my grandmother. I'm certain i did not know this president or his history prior to the dream. It may be coincidence but it's curious how a lot of information fits in.
