I'm a bit suss of this regression business. We all have these fantasies we create, the 'what ifs' where we imagine we're different people, living in a different era. Having a 'special affinity' for say, Jewish culture or the English countryside means nothing in itself. I used to fancy I used to fancy I might've lived a past life somewhere in the New England region of the US because I feel a bond with it, but I don't think it's because I had a past life there.

I think the 'collective memory of the species' thing does make sense though. We all share common ancestral memories and these may be somehow passed on genetically.

Me too!

As far as remembering past lives, I have trouble remembering where I parked my car at Walmart sometimes.

On that note I have been told that if you don't break the bad karma and you don't fulfill your purpose for incarnating this time you WILL be sent back.

YAY! During my recent depressing psychic reading I was also told that so far I've ignored my soul purpose so I am on notice that it'll all happen again and worse next time.

Can't I just say right now I refuse to be reincarnated?

I would like to have a past life regression with someone very trustworthy, not sure I can clear my mind enough though. And how do you know if it's a real regression or just your imagination?

If reincarnation is real, then perhaps I had these lives - because I feel such a strong connection (negative or positive):

Italy's Amalfi Coast and also Rome - never been, NEED to go. All Italian culture in general, very hard to explain.

China, Sichuan Province - same as above

The Netherlands - have a very strong negative association with Holland and have since childhood; it is very odd. I mean early memories of basically hating Holland and its architecture, clogs, and tulips. Also associate Holland with bleak factories. My strongest potential past life association. Sounds totally nuts, I know. I even have a gut feeling of revulsion when I see window panes that have a large X in them (is that even Dutch?) . My apologies to the Dutch.

Monterey Bay, CA, and San Francisco - I have been there and it feels much like home. If this was a past life it was probably my last. Have had dreams about that area many times, early 60s surroundings.

Weird, eh? It feels more than just a like or dislike - I really like New York too but though I actually did live there I don't even have the strong sense of connection as I do for the above.

I have a midwestern common upbringing and recall seeing the buddha for the very first time took my breath away. Since then I've tended to seek out the wisdom from buddhism, now that I think about it. I've only just for the first time thought of this as being a clue to a past life.

lately I've been thinking of a couple of people who passed away years ago, how I'd love to believe they've been reincarnated and are once again in my life in a new form. It's a fascinating subject.

be careful for what you wish for. A self-absorbed wealthy young lady can be not so warm as we would think.

No. I REALLY do not believe I have.

However, there are places I believe I've experienced that had an incredible familiarity, as if I had lived there before. The place that comes right to the top of the list is Quebec City, Canada.
