    I agree with Yaxley - I don't doubt that people have visions of what seems to be their former lives in their heads, but from a Christian perspective they can't be memories as such. And in that case you'd be channeling demons who try to give you the impression you have led a former life, to lead you away from the truth. Or maybe the memories are real afterall, but perhaps completely misunderstood. They could be the memories of your ancestors rather than your own. There's so much we don't know about our brains and about so-called junk DNA (which I doubt is purely junk) yet.
    "The moral code of our society is so demanding that no one can think, feel and act in a completely moral way. For example, we are not supposed to hate anyone, yet almost everyone hates somebody at some time or other, whether he admits it to himself or not. Some people are so highly socialized that the attempt to think, feel and act morally imposes a severe burden on them. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. We use the term “oversocialized” to describe such people." — Ted Kaczynski

    I do not believe in it, it is likely a demonic lie (Satan wants people to believe they have a multiple or an unlimited number of lives to make things right, so that they do not have to worry about sin and coming to Christ). Hypnosis does not work with everyone, and it is occult in nature. For those that does (usually extraverts and people with high EQ), it is fairly easy to plant memories inside their heads and make them believe certain events happened. With others, it could be the (side)effect of certain drugs. The feeling of deja vu, for example, is fairly easy to reproduce in a lab.

    I saw once a video of someone who tried to hypnotise people towards past life regression. It works gradually, you first recall moments as a child, then you imagine yourself in the womb, and so on. The technique is simple, it relaxes you and makes use of your imagination. There is nothing factual about it. However, I would caution anyone from subjecting themselves to such techniques.

    What might exist is epigenetic memory, which could be past traumatic experiences shared through DNA.

    I am very convinced that thought patterns are inherited, on reincarnation from a Pagan perspective it is strongly likely in that sense, we are where we come from. I often feel that many times when people think of past lives they could be daydreaming or romanticizing about our histories. A good example would be that someone believes in their past life they were a famous king, poet or whatever, this could just be overactive daydreaming and wishful thinking. However we could all be wrong and we actually are reincarnates of our relatives or folk, it depends on what perspective you classify reincarnation into either actual or general.

    There should be a maybe option on the poll-

    people love polls and they are so helpful in guiding our independent thinking[sarcasm]

    I have to be agnostic about it, but I lean towards believing. I recommend the books by Dr. Jim B. Tucker:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_B._Tucker about children apparently remembering past lives. It's hard to escape the conclusion that reincarnation is the best explanation for a number of cases.

    https://med.virginia.edu/perceptual-...revious-lives/

    "Some young children, usually between the ages of 2 and 5, speak about memories of a previous life they claim to have lived. At the same time they often show behaviors, such as phobias or preferences, that are unusual within the context of their particular family and cannot be explained by any current life events. These memories appear to be concordant with the child’s statements about a previous life.

    In many cases of this type, the child’s statements have been shown to correspond accurately to facts in the life and death of a deceased person. Some of the children have birthmarks and birth defects that correspond to wounds or other marks on the deceased person whose life is being remembered by the child. In numerous cases postmortem reports have confirmed these correspondences. Older children may retain these apparent memories, but generally they seem to fade around the age of 7 . The young subjects of these cases have been found all over the world including Europe and North America."

    This is an interesting point. I was once told by an acquaintance that a friend of his had always possessed a memory of a place he'd never seen. Then one day he happened across that place while living in a new city and, after mentioning this to his own father, he was surprised to learn that the park had immense sentimental importance to his father - who had visited it often in his youth. So basically the son had inherited a memory from his father.

    He could have been trying to pull my leg but I think the story is worth sharing.

    I find stories about children with odd preferences / attitudes / memories to be the most interesting. It's mainly the adults who claim to remember a dozen lives as badass warriors & kings - yet now work as a cashier at Walmart - that make me lose interest.

    Yeah. Tucker himself accepts that supposed memories from hypnosis are of very little value. Either the stories told by some of the children he writes about have a paranormal explanation or there were some very sophisticated hoaxes behind them by ordinary people with no obvious motivation.

    If reincarnation does take place after we take our last breath, I just hope I'm not reincarnated back into this twisted world.

    I'm open for that idea. It's not only to be found in Hinduism and Buddhism, but in many religions. It can be found in the Bible (both OT and NT) but it's kind of vague there. It's a common thought in Kabbalah. I met a Christian group last year from Germany. They were not a congregation but they wanted to talk about the ideas of reincarnations in Christianity. The members belong to different denominations.

    No , there is no recarnation or rebirth .

    Similar people might be reborn , especially since the documentation of people
    is far more common , than in ancient times .

    Everyone could pick some person , and play it's role in everyday's life .

    Such actor's behaviour is a psychological issue .

    There is this common tale about a person in mental hospital , claiming to be Napoleon .

    Napoleon might have been reborn in Sarkozy and Marcon for example , with different
    pre-shaped societies .

    Some Napoleon could really emerge after a bloody revolution .

    You should check the Tibetan book of the dead, Bardo Thodol, it has some really good insight about where we can go after this lifetime. (I hope you will find a good translation, though.)

    So, my opinion on this matter can be summarized by the phrase above. Some things happen even if we believe in them or not. But remembering past lives is not easy to do, I guess most people who are claiming to remember past lives are just dreaming and fantasizing or whatever else about it. Unless it's some saint or important spiritual figure to claim that he/she remembers some of their past existences, I really doubt it. Though, I read about some children who had some memories from their previous life, but that was because they died of a sudden or violent death and reincarnated quite soon after that. If it's from small children it may be a chance it's true too.

    Tibetans have a cult about preparing to die, just because they know they go somewhere else after that, and they want to be prepared for the moment of their deaths. I think that's wise.
