Reincarnation: Were We Lovers from a Past Life?

Cases of Past Life Recall

Article by Craig Hamilton-Parker. This is an extract from my book The Psychic Casebook about reincarnation evidence from people who have recalled their former lives through hypnosis, memory, dreams and through psychic readings.


“We met in a past life.”

‘The other woman’ in Richard King’s marriage is out of this world. In fact, she’s never been born in the 20th century for Richard from Havant in Hampshire believes that he and his friends are in communication with his soulmate Lorelei with whom he lived many past lives. And according to Richard, his wife doesn’t mind. “At first she was upset that I gave my attention to someone else but gradually she’s coming around. After all, Lorelei is not here in the physical sense and I’ve obviously chosen to live this life with my wife Jo.”

For 6 years Richard has been writing a ‘Spiritual CV’ about his past lives at the astonishing rate of 80,000 words a year. Most of this concerns the lives he’s shared with his soul mate Lorelei. “My interest started in 1991 when I took part in healing workshop at the Healing Arts Festival in London,” says Richard

“We did some relaxation exercises and were then asked to visualize our spirit guides. At first, I saw nothing, then suddenly, I saw a woman’s face in full color and vivid detail. I felt that I knew her and that we had been deeply, physically, in love many times. It was an intense, all-pervading love of such quality, depth, beauty and sheer power- beautiful beyond words and utterly devastating. It left me shattered and in tears.”

Psychic Friend

It was a psychic friend, Leigh, who first referred to his new friend as Richard’s soulmate. “Over the following months, I came to understand the term better and realized that there was vastly more to it than the usual concept of soulmates. One Sunday evening as I sat thinking about the emotional side of my nature I heard a voice say ‘That’s connected with a previous life.

Lorelei has already told you that.’ Over the next few days an extraordinary series of coincidences, involving myself, friends and family, reinforced the connection between my soulmate and the name Lorelei.

“One evening after attending a healing session, Leigh and I were in a coffee shop. Leigh said she was seeing mountains connected with me and asked if I had been to Italy or Austria. I said that a healer had just made a similar connection.

“Then Leigh said of my soulmate Lorelei, ‘She’s not just anyone, she’s the one to do with the legend.’ Leigh asked if there was a connection somewhere with the Black Forest in Germany and the Rhine. He saw us together playing on rocks and swimming in a large river.”

The Mythical Woman

When Richard and Leigh searched their history books they discovered that there was a mythical woman called Lorelei. The French poet Apollinaire had written about her as the goddess ‘Who made all men perish from love’. According to the legends she lived near the Black Forest at the famous crag that overhangs the Rhine downstream from Bacharach in Germany.

For Richard King, Lorelei is a real personage with whom he has shared past lives. “During development circles and at other times, I began to see parts of other lives, my own and, occasionally other people’s. Lives I had spent with Lorelei included one during the English Civil War. In those days she was known as Marjorie. I was called Jeremy and our children Ann-Marie and Toby.”

“Some people joke that having Lorelei around is like being haunted by the ghost of an ex-wife. It is not like that. Lorelei is a powerful healing spirit. In mediumistic communications, she calls my wife Jo her ‘Celestial Sister’. This was proved to Jo and me when she had to have a hysterectomy. I sat in meditation asking Lorelei to send healing to her as the operation took place. I saw Jo and Lorelei surrounded in a pink cloud of healing light. The doctors were amazed at Jo’s remarkable recovery and she was home within just a few days of the operation.”

Rosemary Barry (46) from Chandlers Ford, in Eastleigh, Hampshire started having waking dreams at the age of 13 and which kept recurring for 6 years. “It was like dreaming while you’re wide awake” explains Rosemary “All of a sudden I would be transported back in time to Victorian times. I am standing by a bandstand and notice the distinctive circular patterns of the ironwork.

Wearing a long dress with a small floral pattern, I have gloves on and a bonnet. At my side is a man in a military uniform. He has a sword and his tunic reminds me of the uniforms from the times of the Crimean War.”

In 1970 at the age of 19, Rosemary courted a young man who we will call Michael. “Whilst in London Michael suggested that we take a walk in Richmond Park. I was overcome by an eerie feeling of deja vu as we walked down the paths. Although I’d never been there before I realized that I knew every detail of the place. To his astonishment was able to show him around the park.

I could tell him where the paths led and what we’d see when we turned each bend. It was like living in two worlds at the same time.

Eerie Feelings

“Then the eerie feeling got worse. My head was in a spin and I felt as if I was falling through space into an empty void. This was the place of my dreams, but now it was real. For a few moments, I was standing in another time. I could see my floral dress, feel my bonnet and could see Michael beside me in full military uniform. We walked on and turned a corner. There in front of us was the bandstand with the same distinctive wrought iron work!”

Rosemary explained to Michael why she had been behaving so strangely and began to tell him of her vision. “Michael wouldn’t let me finish” continues Rosemary “He confessed that he too had persistent dreams of what he believed was of a past life. He had been a soldier who had died at the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ during the Crimean War!”

Although it appears that Rosemary and Michael had shared a past life together their relationship in this life was to end. “I believe that we had to come together to resolve unfinished business,” says Rosemary “We parted in sorrow at that bandstand all those years ago but were given a second chance to resolve our relationship.”

Recalling Past Lives

The experience of recalling a past life inspired Rosemary to become a past life therapist and she now helps others recall their incarnations. She teaches people to get into a state of light revelry similar to the waking dreams she described earlier. One of her subjects is her daughter Victoria (17).

“I was quite a tomboy at the age of 13 when mum offered to take me back to my past life” explains Victoria “It was more than a phase, I loved war films and had a thing about helicopters.

“When mum guided me back I became aware that I was in Vietnam. I was an American soldier aged 21. I was a man but I was still me, it felt quite natural being male. Five of us were parachuted into the jungle but one of us was captured and we saw him executed by the Vietcong.

“We became angry and started shooting at the enemy even though we were greatly outnumbered. Then there was a frantic chase through the jungle as we dashed to catch the helicopters that had been sent in to pick us up. To my horror, I saw one of the helicopters hit and explode. In desperation, I rushed towards the second helicopter but was shot in the back and died before I could reach it.”

Is it a fantasy?

Mum says how during her recall Victoria was crying out in anger and pain. She wept as she described events as if they were happening here and now. “There are people who may say that past life recall is a fantasy,” says Rosemary. “But the subject is doing much more than storytelling. They live the events and express an intensity of emotion that is totally unfamiliar to them. These impressions and feelings have to come from somewhere. I believe it is from past lives.”


Ian Cugley from Deeside in Flincher was apprehensive when he decided in October last year to be hypnotized by Diane Egby-Edwards in Bournemouth. Ian is a down-to-earth man who spent much of his working life managing the staff of British Steel’s stores.

“I’d always felt that it’s mainly sad old people looking for comfort who want to know what lies before and after this life. But I put aside my skepticism and decided to give hypnotic regression a go. To my utter surprise, it answered many questions about why things are the way they are in my life.”

Hypnotic Regression

Using hypnotism Diane was able to take Ian back to his previous life. “Although I’ve never traveled and I’ve never read history I have an uncanny ability to recall America’s early history. I’ve never been taught it but I just know it.” says Ian “It was this era that I found myself in when Diana took me back.

“I found myself stood looking across a very broad valley with red rock mountains in the distance. It was hot and I was being harassed by flies and I was very very thirsty. Wearing cavalry trousers with buckskin knee boots, I saw three ladies carrying parasols and looking at me with great suspicion.

“I walked across a street and went into a bar. As I came out I realized that I was still so very thirsty. Diana then asked me to move forward in time and I found myself on a horse traveling over some very arid land and came to some trees where there was some cavalry camped. As I approached I could sense the bad feelings coming from them. In the distance, I could hear Diane’s voice asking me if I’m a deserter? ‘No I’m not’ I replied ‘I don’t know what I am but they don’t like me’

Past Life Recall

“I spoke to the officer in charge and complained about my thirst. I’m then brought forward by Diana and find myself walking across a plain looking for a wagon that’s overdue. It’s desperate that we find them. I then see that it’s being chased by Indians. I say ‘What am I to do?’ At this point, Diana tells me to look at my hands. ‘Ohh’ I exclaim ‘I’m brown! I’m an Indian!’

“It was such a shock to me at the time and perhaps explained why nobody had given me water. I then chased after the wagon, hoping that they would realize that I wasn’t hostile but I got trapped beneath it when it rolled over. Pinned beneath the wagon I experience the horror of seeing the Indians fire flaming arrows and I am burnt to death.

“The experience was so vivid, so real, that I now believe it to be memories of a past life. It also explains a lot about my own life. As a child, I would be the only one in the cinema who would cheer on the Indians. Many years ago I started collecting plates portraying Indians, dream catchers, and Indian mandalas and I’d always felt that the Indians are misrepresented by history. This all started way before it became fashionable to talk about Indians.

“Discovering my past life was a strange but wonderful experience. I am no longer a skeptic. ”


Jannet Stone from Birmingham added the unusual extra ‘n’ to her Christian name soon after her divorce. “I don’t know why but I felt absolutely compelled to do it.” she says “At the time I thought it was something to do with finding a new identity but I was soon to discover that the reason for my action is to be found far in the past.”

Jannet, like many people after a divorce, started a spiritual search to find her real self. She met hypnotherapist Rosemary Barry from Chandler’s Ford in Hampshire who helped her explore her past lives by means of ‘regression psychometry’. This is a psychic technique that does not involve hypnotism or trance.

The psychometrist intuitively senses their clients’ past lives by holding an object that the person has owned for a long time and reading the ‘recordings’ left on it.

“I was fascinated to hear about my past lives,” says Jannet “I was being told about how I  once lived in Delft in Holland during the latter part of the 17th century. We were a merchant family and lived under a cloud of religious intolerance. A man was important who sailed the barges. He had given me a ring.

The Evidence

“Of course there was no way we could know for sure that Rosemary was getting it right. Then she looked at me and said ‘I see something very important that you will be able to confirm one day. The ring has a coat of arms on it. I think it’s a puffin bird, no it’s a helmet seen from the side.’ She then drew the picture that she was seeing. ‘You’ll find this in Delft, there’s flowing feathers and there’s a funny cross man or something above it’.”

At this time Jannet was a mature student studying the history of art. “Only weeks after the consultation I was given the opportunity to go to Holland to study the paintings of Vermeer. Of course, as soon as I had some free time I shot down to Delft to visit the local church and see if I could find my coat of arms.”

Jannet visited St Hypolitus, Delft’s old 16th-century church, but was disappointed to discover that the graves had been vandalized by French invaders in 1789. All the crests and coats of arms had been hacked off. But as she turned to leave something caught her eye. “I noticed one grave by the door that had a coat of arms. My hair felt like it was curling as I saw the helmet shaped like a puffin’s head, the flowing feathers and even the strange cross figure that Rosemary had tried to describe. Then I looked at the inscription and nearly fell backward. The name of one of the grave’s occupants spelled her name the same way as me- Jannetgen.”

My Pagan Love Affair

Amanda McCallum (32) from Gosport in Hampshire had always wanted to try hypnotic regression. When she saw hypnotist Kevin Taylor’s (37) advertisement in her local newsagent’s shop window she decided to give it a try. But what she uncovered was to amaze her and change her life:

“During our first session, I saw myself as a male sailor in the 18th century. It was an incredible experience. I felt like a man and cursed like a man and could see scenes of 18th century Portsmouth unfolding before my eyes. I was shocked by the incredible sharpness and vividness of the experience. This was not a dream or suggestion. It was as if I was really there.


“Kevin, the hypnotist, was also amazed at how easily I entered a deep trance. I was such a good subject that he asked me if I would mind coming back and doing some research to see just how much we could uncover. Normally I’m so shy that I’d have said no but I liked Kevin and felt I could trust him. I agreed to help.

“Kevin and I seemed to get on with each other from the moment we met. It’s quite unlike me to trust someone so implicitly but with Kevin, it was as if I’d known him all my life. We continued the sessions and I remembered a number of past lives. We got on so very well that finally, Kevin asked me the big question. Next time he hypnotized me could he ask me to recall if we had ever shared a past life together?

“Kevin fired the question at the next hypnotic session. I became this young woman of 18 who spoke with tremendous self-confidence and assertiveness that was nothing like my real personality. ‘I am Melissa’ I heard my voice boom ‘And why are you asking me such foolish questions that you know already?’

Speaking Old English

“Melissa spoke in an Old English dialect and used words such as ‘hexed’ which I wouldn’t use in ordinary speech. When my mum listened to the tape she said that it certainly was my voice but definitely not my personality.

“Melissa told Kevin that we were in Cornwall, it was the 16th century and that she is a witch. She called Kevin, David and said that he was one of her companions. There were other companions such as a man called Simeon but he David was her favorite. David would help Melissa to gather herbs, bless babies and conduct healing rituals. I saw my past life unfold.

“I saw us dancing naked in water under the moonlight, riding bareback horses along the beach and saw how David had helped me raise a child in the same way my mother had raised me to be a witch. At the age of 47, I died. I described it as ‘a ripe old age to die’ But what amazed me most was just how different a person I was. I was cocky, authoritarian and sometimes downright vulgar.

Dancing in the Moonlight

“When I came around and woke to my normal self my cheeks flushed with embarrassment. I had only known Kevin for a month and here I was talking about dancing naked with him in the moonlight. You don’t normally tell a stranger this type of thing.

“I believe that the hypnotic sessions have rekindled a romance from long ago. I’m nothing like Melissa in this life, I’m just an ordinary, down to earth mother of two. If someone had told me this same story a year ago I’d have thought them completely mad. But Kevin and I really do now believe that we lived together once before hundreds of years ago.

“We’ve talked about visiting another hypnotist to have Kevin hypnotized. I can’t wait to hear what David really thought about his mentor Melissa.”

Call one of our psychic readers for psychic readings that consider love and past lives. Could one of the phone psychics reveal information that you have always known to be true? A psychic reading may confirm a dream or a powerful bond of love.


Josephine Sellers (51) from Milborne Port near Yeovil in Dorset recalls the day she met her future husband Brian.. “We were meant for each other and we knew it the moment our eyes met.

“It was as if an electric charge shot through my body when I spotted Brian stood towering over the group of men with him. I married him at 19 and we’ve been together ever since.

“I believe that it was no coincidence that we met and fell in love Our coming together was predetermined because 400 years ago we had been together before. As a child, I used to have memories of living in a big house and riding in a carriage.

“I would ask my mother where all the people were that I once knew, the ‘yesterday people’ as I called them. ‘And who’s the vicar’ I would say to my friends. Of course, mother told me that this was all nonsense and in time I became as skeptical as to her and about the existence of past lives. But in time my mother changed her mind.


“In the early years of our marriage we lived in London and I had a busy life working as a legal assistant. Life was so hectic that there was hardly time to think but when I stopped work and started a family something strange started to happen to me. Some mornings I would wake up and find myself in the wrong time.

“I’d sit up in bed and realize that I was in a luxurious Elizabethan room. I was watching events that took place hundreds of years ago. It was like watching a film except you could feel and smell everything as well. These visions would end as abruptly as they began.

“My visions triggered my interest in the paranormal and I started to meet many people who were psychic. So many of them said the same thing to me: That I’d be living in a cottage that will have a very special significance for me. This was a very odd thing to say to someone living in the London suburbs.

Memories of Dorset

“One year we went to Dorset for our holidays and I just didn’t want to go back home to London. I became very upset and started crying and Brian felt the same. We decided there and then that we’d close our business in London and move as soon as we could. The pull of Dorset was like a magnet.

“We finally moved and settled in a small cottage in Wimborne. The psychics’ prophesies had come true.

“I felt that something had happened there in the past that I now wanted to put right. In particular, I was drawn to an area called Witchampton and would go there at every opportunity.”

“Brian and I started to take an interest in psychic things and after 10 years of experimentation, we eventually meet a trance medium named Evelyn who took no fee for her work. Spirit voices would talk directly through her. Then one day to my utter astonishment a vicar started to talk through her. ‘My name is Reverend William Thomas’ he said ‘And I am here to tell you a remarkable tale of reincarnation.’

“Over a number of sessions, he told us that he was the man I had seen in my childhood. He also told me how he’d had many legal battles with the crown over tenure rights. But most intriguing of all was that he said that we knew each other. I had been a woman called Catherine and had known him 400 years ago during the Elizabethan times.


“I immediately realized that I was being told things that I somehow already knew. I recorded each session and to make sure everything was authenticated correctly asked a skeptical ex-army major and ex-schoolmaster Mr. John Lloyd to help research any information I was given.

“We continued our sessions with the medium and spoke again to the Rev William Thomas. We also made tape recordings and locked the tapes away in a bank vault. Later I met a hypnotist Diane Egby-Edwards from Bournemouth who offered to hypnotize me and take me back to my past life to see if we could retrieve any more information. An finally, I also kept careful notes of any memories that would come to me spontaneously.

“At first, I really couldn’t believe what was happening. But the combined information given us from my hypnosis session, from the medium, and from my own spontaneous memories gave us enough information to search the records to see if it was all true.

“I was told that I was named Catherine. She was the middle daughter of five from a family of 13 children. One of my brother’s names was Edmund. The vicar Rev also gave us detailed information about his legal battles with the crown.

We shared a Past Life

“But there was more to come. In the trance sessions, the vicar told us that we had all shared this past life together. The researcher Lloyd had been the father Sir Henry who incidentally the vicar despised,  and my husband had been my brother Sir Edmund. According to the vicar we had all been together in this past life 400 years ago.

“We went to the Dorset Records Office and looked to see if we could find any reverends with the name William Thomas. To our utter astonishment, there was a vicar with this name for the small parish church of Chritchel later named Witchampton- the place that had obsessed me so much since we’d moved. Also, we found that he was connected with a landed family called Uvedale.

The Proof

“The father was Sir Henry Uvedale, the mother Isabell and there were thirteen children including a Catherine and Edmund. Clearly, this was the family that the vicar had talked about. Also, we discovered that the vicar had, as he had told us, been my tutor and involved in a long legal dispute with the crown. Everything we had been told was true.

“We also discovered that the estate still existed although the original house had burned down. It was now owned by the Right Honourable Mary Martin who is a cousin to the present Queen. We contacted her ladyship, told her our strange story and asked if we could take a look around the grounds to see if it revealed any more memories. She gave us permission and invited us for tea.

Reincarnation Memories

“I had remembered the big house but couldn’t remember living in it. With our group was a dowser, Bob Seeton, who said he would dowse the grounds to see if there were any other buildings below the ground. He found something and suddenly the memories came flooding back. Brian and I, when we were Catherine and Edmund, hadn’t lived in the big house at all.

“The thirteen children were such a handful that Sir Henry had to build a separate nursery a quarter of a mile away from the house where we had been born. Together with the dowser, we found the site.

“Afterwards we asked the Right Honourable Mary Martin if she knew if another building had stood in the grounds. Her Ladyship said that her family had the original records and she believed that this was true.

“I believe that these strange events prove that Brian and I have shared a past life before. But according to the spirit of Rev William Thomas, this is not our first life together. He says we also lived in the same area in 3,000 BC when I was a pagan seer who carried a jeweled wand and worshipped at the ancient standing stones.

“The evidence for our Elizabethan life together is so overwhelming that I’m prepared to take the vicar on his word.”

    I met a new coworker at my company and as soon as I saw him I felt electricity come out of my hands and a strange sense of deja vu mixed with flying feeling. Every time I saw him I felt strange. I started getting bizarre vivid dreams involving water rain being chased down by Victorian-era stage coaches in London. I’m Asian and gave never been to London or Europe. I see my reflection I have red hair I’m Irish young woman. I dreamed of being ravaged in the waterfalls by a larger dark-haired Englishman. The new co-worker looks at me the same way. The dreams end bad and I’m drowning and he doesn’t help me. This lifetime I have a fear of drowning and being unable to breathe. I slowly sent forgiveness to that life and the co-worker was transferred back to Asia. Also, my sinus breathing healed and I do not need a mess anymore.

    I believe that we are reborn many, many times and in between incarnations we exist in a spirit world. We learn lessons in our lives as our souls advance and mature. Incarnations become less frequent the more spiritually advanced we become until we are spiritually complete and no longer need to live on this Earth.

    I remember my former life clearly and without effort. That is my problem. I am so absolutely, completely alone. Remembering is a curse. You don’t get to see your loved ones again, you don’t get to be with friends again. Everyone you knew, everyone you loved, everyone you cared for is forever gone.

    You can’t contact them and apparently you can’t find them – believe me I tried. Who says they are reborn in the same world? And even if, they probably don’t remember you. Remembering is a curse because the feelings don’t go away. You can never be happy in your new life because you long for parts of the old one, it’s hard to open up to new people, especially if your heart belongs to somebody not alive anymore. And the worst is that you can’t talk to anybody, you can’t relate and nobody can relate to you because people you miss so desperately have never existed in this life. I’m in the middle of my life and it still gives me tearful breakdowns. I miss my love so much and the only thing I can hope for that maybe he hasn’t went on, maybe we can see each other in the next life. He was catholic, I am not even sure I am allowed to wish for this as it is against his beliefs. All I know is I am in pain and the pain will never stop until the day I take my last breath.

    The isolated place seems likely a place for romantic hangout, big mansion could be your or your lover’s home, either or both of you were very important or close to the king. Then something happened, somehow your love story could not make to finish line in past life. The person might also be your mother in past life as there is no truer love than that. It seems unlikely, the most painful thing is our own karma preventing us from meeting our loved ones. Praying to Lord Hanumaan will help.

    I am a young girl from India. I always get dreams of some isolated place with a rainy and cold place where I have a very big mansion with pillars and everything and in each dream I am bound to feel that I have lost someone now and the only one who truly loved me is not here and we both miss each other. I always feel a pain in my heart and I am always in fear of losing something important like power and love. What do these dreams indicate?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 20, 2017, 4:15 pm

      There is not enough information in your dream to verify that it is a dream about a past life. Maybe the future will reveal more through other sources such as the Naadis.

  • Maria Sep 29, 2016, 5:40 pm

    I believe I have had past life memories. The memories being sparked by meeting a person in this life that I had known in other lifetimes. These memories are just flashes/glimpses of another lifetime. What’s remarkable about them and unlike any memory of this lifetime is the intensity of emotion felt.
    Before meeting or seeing my now friend, I heard his name spoke and I knew then he was a part of my life somehow. After meeting him and spending just a little time with him, I knew I loved him. It wasn’t for a few months later I had the memories. I’ve not yet told him about the memories, I want to, but don’t know how he will feel about it.

  • Jennyfer Sep 14, 2016, 9:36 pm

    My husband had a dream in which I was his mother. He was a 3 year old boy. In the dream I give him away to another family because we were so poor but the other family mistreated him. Eventually he was made to go to war and the dream ends with him crying and feeling hate towards me. I felt sad when my husband told me his dream and I fear it will damage our relationship in this present life. We are newly weds so this troubles me.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Sep 15, 2016, 1:49 pm

      The dream may be an expression of his unconscious doubts about marriage or his fears that the marriage may not work out. The fact he dreamed this does not mean that the marriage is in trouble. Newly weds naturally have to go though a lot of emotional changes and life adjustments and dreams can act as a release for this wild energy. They sometimes express feelings in an exaggerated way. The fact he shared the dream with you shows that he trusts you.

    Good day Craig, I am from South Africa, I fallen I’ll with Bell’s Palsy, went to physiotherapist, when I came to him he say that he know me from a past life, at first I felt that I know him, but I was thinking it is not important, he treated me and we start to talk, a lot of memories from the past was flooding my memories, it was about 80 000 years maybe longer ago, smells, tastes and signs start forming in my mind. I start remembering Hindu language, (I am not Hindi religion) remembering my name his name the children’s names, I was talking to him in my dreams and he was talking back to me. At first I thought I am loosing my mind. I think that he also got a big fright. He is trying to avoid me. I am believer of after life and want to know more but people that I’ve talked to say I must leave the past alone, do you think I need to move on or is it OK to asked all these questions.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Jun 27, 2016, 11:02 am

      In my book Messages from the Universe I explain how our past lives determine the karma we carry in our present life. In response to this we need to discover the nature of this karma and counter act it with remedies. These ‘remedies’ are positive helpful things we can do for others such as direct charity and so on. The problem for some people is that past life memories can become obsessive and this will hold back progress. So my advice is to accept the possibility of this as a past life but to focus on doing good things and acts of kindness in this life. In this way you free yourself of the past and move towards a better future including, I believe, better health too.

    Hi Craig! I’m not sure if you can read this but I’ll try to ask anyway. It has been troubling me for the past few days. Actually, the president in our school he is really older than me (probably twice than my age I’m not sure), when I first saw him there is something in my mind that says I knew him before. He looked familiar and you know there is a strong energy every time I see him. The thing was, I had the opportunity to look at him for few minutes when I graduated in the university. My heart beats past and I felt excited, I don’t know why but it felt like I knew him before. He is actually very rich and I never spoke to him before. Every time I see his picture, it feels so weird. I just can’t figure it out. Now, it feels like my feelings are developing. I really hate it so much. I just want to forget him but my mind is so busy thinking about him. I actually have a boyfriend, who is twice my age too for five years now and so far I don’t have problem with him. I love him so much and it troubles me a lot because I kept on thinking about our president lately. Is this a sign that I might have met him in my past life? 🙁

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Apr 5, 2016, 4:31 pm

      At this stage there is no evidence to suggest that this is a shared past-life. It’s a possibility of course but a verified past-life connection would require some form of evidence such as very specific shared memories and other things in common.

  • Merry Mar 21, 2016, 1:35 am

    I know from hypnotic regression that I have had many past lives, but I have a question specifically related to reincarnation and soul mates. Is it likely/common/possible that soul mates would choose not to reincarnate together in a particular lifetime?

    We were born 14 months apart, on opposite sides of the globe, and into different cultures. Even though he was a celebrity in this life, I wasn’t aware of him until after his untimely death in his 40’s. After becoming aware of him, I’ve found out a lot about him through written materials, films, and examples of his art that still exist.

    I have a sense of connection with this man that I have never experienced with anyone else. Seeing photos or watching him on film invokes both excitement and a deep sadness. Everything I read about him or find out from his friends resonates with me, and checks all the boxes on my list of what I’d want in a lifetime companion. I’ve even gone so far as to pray that we can be together in our next life, and I’m not generally a praying person.

    Am I being silly, or is it possible that we are soul mates, but chose to live this incarnation apart?

  • maureen Aug 25, 2015, 4:19 pm

    For 8 years I have been crying almost every day. The reason everything that’s bad happens to me friends joke saying oh you must have been a witch in a previous life. It’s not funny at all. My son got murdered December 2007. My young brother murdered July 7th 2008 and my youngest son threw himself out of a window 2013. Now I have one daughter and she has been drinking alcohol for the past 2 years.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Sep 23, 2015, 1:34 pm

      Many of our troubles may be the result of unresolved problems from past lives – I believe this and feel I have had proof in my own life but as far as I can tell from your post there is nothing to suggest that you were a witch in your last reincarnation. I think your ‘friends’ are just being a bit nasty and thoughtless.

  • mae May 17, 2015, 3:17 am

    My heart is sad for someone I’ve never met or seen. I can sense that he is close or maybe thinking of me too. Its crazy to even think that my soul could miss someone bad that it brings me to tears at times. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

  • shweta singh Mar 31, 2015, 9:10 am

    i want to know about my past life please help …

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 31, 2015, 3:05 pm

      This would probably require you to see a clairvoyant who specializes in this topic. It’s not something you’d discover on a forum. The astrologers from India and some Western astrologers can sometimes give advice about past lives.

  • MS Feb 16, 2015, 7:39 pm

    It’s strange to know about your past life: I can recall my soul mate and many strange things about my past life. I miss my soul mate. My wife accepts and understands this and I have her shoulder to cry on. She is with me in this life and I am proud to have her as my partner. I do want to know more confirmations about my past life such as what happened to her and me.

  • cathy Feb 12, 2015, 5:53 pm

    Hi Craig, my partner passed away a month ago. Our relationship had issues but she said (through a friend medium) that she loves me a lot and that she will always be ‘Cathy’s MJ’ and I will always be ‘MJ’s Cathy’. She even fulfilled her sweet joke when she was still alive to leave to me the dentures she made in college (she was a dentist). During her wake, I saw the same full set of dentures on the road, right beside my parked car. She also promised that if it is my turn to pass on, she will be there to welcome me. Can you tell if we shared past lives and if she is my twin soul?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Feb 18, 2015, 12:21 pm

      I don’t do personal readings through public forums or Facebook and so on but from what you have described I think your medium friend has already indicated that you have a special spiritual connection and love that has already crossed the divide between this world and the spirit world.

  • Matti Jan 29, 2015, 5:19 pm

    If my mum was reincarnated, how would I ever see her again when it’s my time to cross over?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Apr 2, 2015, 1:55 pm

      We all spend some time together in the spirit world first before reincarnating. I believe we groups of people are reborn together and often in the same family. I have covered this in detail in my book.

  • Balaji Jan 19, 2015, 8:03 am

    I’m Balaji from India, and I really would like to know about my past life. Can anyone say how to find my past life?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Jan 20, 2015, 12:18 pm

      If you live in India I suggest you ask the Naadi leaves oracle in Delhi. These contain a person’s past and future life.

      • paul Aug 30, 2015, 9:27 am

        Future life according to Buddhism is a result of past and present actions. How is it possible to forecast about ones future life? One cannot assume nadis to be the real truth.

        • Craig Hamilton-Parker Sep 23, 2015, 1:47 pm

          In my new book about the Naadi Leaves called ‘Messages from the Universe’ I explain this point in detail. The Naadi leaves do allow for free will – this is why people do puja – to mitigate the effects of a past life. They show what will happen but also how we can change the future. The best way to have a happy future is to be a good and loving person in this life.

  • kirti asthana Jan 8, 2015, 11:28 am

    I’m sure that the call of place we may have known in a past life will echo into future reincarnations. But you would need a little more evidence to prove for certain that this is a past life memory.

  • Randy Dec 11, 2014, 1:44 am

    I believe in past lives and there are things, places in this life I am drawn to strongly. I am open to learning but sceptical, open-minded but cynical. Do you like a challenge?

  • Edith Sep 26, 2014, 5:33 am

    I was born Mexican and raised in the U.S. yet I feel no affinity with either nation. I feel powerfully attracted by Asian things from music to language and food. I dreamed many times of being there so clearly yet in real life I haven’t been there. Later I saw the exact same places from my dreams in travel show programs on TV. Makes me wonder if this is from a past life reincarnation.

  • Woody Aug 20, 2014, 9:38 am

    This is a fascinating read, thank you. I have been looking more into reincarnation and it’s great to read about other peoples experiences. I too believe that our soulmates are with us in all lives.

  • peter Dec 16, 2013, 5:09 pm

    Read the book called Raglands by Nikki Goodwin. It’s her true story: I am telling you this for your own interests not mine. She proved reincarnation to me.

  • saranyapadmanaban Dec 7, 2013, 8:43 am

    I am a Indian girl and now I live in south India but I love north India and I like that culture very much. I want to live there. Is my call to live there a symptom of past life?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Dec 9, 2013, 6:25 pm

      I’m sure that the call of place we may have known in a past life will echo into future reincarnations. But you would need a little more evidence to prove for certain that this is a past life memory.

  • Brent Bivins Nov 11, 2013, 2:07 am

    My uncle had a past life regression/reading by sending his signature to a medium through the mail. The medium told my uncle that he was able to do this by the vibrations he felt from uncle’s signature. Have you heard of this? I would probably have to do something similar as I live in the bible belt of usa (Oklahoma) and not sure I could find a psychic here. Any advice?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Nov 15, 2013, 11:26 pm

      Mediums give proof of life after death. They do not do past life or reincarnation readings. Many Spiritualists do not believe in reincarnation as they claim that it cannot be proven through mediumship.

  • paula Sep 6, 2013, 10:59 am

    I would really like to share my past life experiences with my ex! I think he’d be shocked.

  • Martina S. Aug 15, 2013, 4:11 pm

    Hi there, may I have a question? How can I find out who I was in the past life? Must I do it myself, or is there anybody (a medium, perhaps) who could do it for me? I have a strange feeling about two of my past lives. I could have been a Vestal virgin in the Ancient Rome. But then, there´s THE OTHER past life I´d really like to explore, and I don´t know how. But I get these visions quite a lot, and I think – however crazy it may sound – I could have been an acquaintance of the late American actor James Dean, or that I could have even been himself.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 15, 2013, 4:45 pm

      Sorry but I had to truncate this one. Very long posts need to be added to our forums. I have kept a copy if you need it.

      • Martina S. Sep 8, 2013, 9:00 am

        No, I don´t need it, but yesterday, I have found out things that no one knows about him – I mean no one but certain writer and friend of James Dean that goes by the name of John Gilmore – when I was reading one of his articles about James Dean on the internet. I knew everything from Dean´s life IN ADVANCE – like knowing why his father hated him so much, and no one knew why. Gilmore explained it there, and I found that the dreams I had about Dean and his family before hand, were 100 percent TRUE! What do you say – could this be an indication that I must have been close to James Dean in a past life or even be a reincarnation of him in my past life? I even got a great sign from God. When asking for one, I saw a T-shirt in shop that said: “If you´re looking for the real sign by God, this is it!”

  • Christin Aug 13, 2013, 12:32 am

    Like Rita said a few comments up, I too believe our soulmates are with us throughout time. I just read a beautiful story, Across Eternity, that talked about this concept. It would be amazing if we knew for sure who our souldmate was/is.

  • Rebecca Aug 7, 2013, 2:28 pm

    Hi my name is Rebecca and I’m 31 years old. I had a strong connection with a boy in kindergarten and he became my boyfriend but sadly he moved away. Then in elementary school he returned and we started dating and of course he moved again. He came back once more in high school and we picked up where we left off. Later he went and joined the navy and I never saw him again for fifteen years. By then I was married but I wasn’t happy. I decided to search for him just for fun on FaceBook and when I saw his profile picture all of the feelings cam flooding back.

    I feel like we have known each other for thousands of years and had many past lives together. When he left the last time my heart was so empty. I sent him a chat request and he responded with “do you know how much hell I went through to get you to find me again?” At the time I had no idea what he meant but later he said he was talking to me telepathically just moments before I sent him a FaceBook message. I have since divorced my husband and now we are together again this time FOREVER!!! Do you that he was a past love of mine and that we may have reincarnated to be together again?

    P.S. I absolutely love your articles!!! Thanks a lot. Rebecca

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 13, 2013, 10:58 am

      There is no way of telling for certain is you were lovers in a past life. Clearly you have strong intuitive feelings about this and it will remain a belief unless you can find some evidence to support your past lives together. For example you may have shared memories or dreams that you could research. Perhaps you could both write down you past life memories – but keep them separate for a few weeks as you do this and only compare them later. When you compare notes you may find some correlations that may give you the reincarnation evidence you need and possible a few leads that you could look up in the public records.

      PS Glad you love the articles – don’t forget send the links to your friends on FaceBook.

  • pamela Aug 5, 2013, 6:11 am

    I would like to know my soul mate was if I was with David in a past life. Will we marry in this life who were we in the past life? I have 4 sons lost 3 to miscarriage I would like to know about their past lives to help them in there previous life.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 13, 2013, 11:53 am

      We do not give past life readings or can give you any evidence of a past life reincarnation on the article comments. We do however have free discussions about this topic in our chat rooms and forums.

  • Amy Aug 1, 2013, 9:11 am

    I think in my past life I was unable to have children. I can remember being about four or five years old and wanting children because I was barren. I don’t think that is normal. How can I find out about my past life?

  • Rebecca May 31, 2013, 2:02 pm

    I would like some help please!! I have had a reoccurring dream or whatever I ain’t sure if it is memories from a past life. I am walking in the woods wearing a blue long dress from the 1800s with a guy. I can hear and smell the woods. Out of no where another guy comes out of the woods I recognize him and turn to run away I hear the click of the revolver and the firing of the bullet and fell it hit me in the back. I have always had slight indention in my back on my left ahoulder blade. To make everything so much more messed up I have met a guy who is so very familer to me and I can tell him anything he can read me like a book the only thing is he lives three states over from me and never met him. I feel like I have known him. Also my dreams or whatever have become more frequent since I have started talking to him.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Jun 17, 2013, 3:22 pm

      To get psychic proof that this is evidence of reincarnation the psychic would need to tell you about this without being given the info you have provided here. It would need to be given to you unsolicited and spontaneously as part of a reading. And even then it could be telepathy at work. So you will need to trust your gut feelings with this one.

  • Kim Andrews May 18, 2013, 1:58 am

    I have recalled several lifetimes through Scientology auditing. I have lived in Russia in the past, and the middle ages in England. I have been buried alive in another lifetime, and have recalled a life in a different part of the universe about 16,000 years ago. I would really like to recall my previous life to this one though.

  • angelita May 17, 2013, 9:57 am

    I have believed in a past life since I was 13 yrs old. Who can help me to know my past life?

  • Genuine May 10, 2013, 11:53 pm

    I believe in reincarnation, knowing the past might not be compulsory but necessary, it can uplift you or kill your urge to strive for the good, how can I understand myself? Who was I in my previous life? I feel hell, when I don’t have what it take to help my fellow beings. Sometimes to me is like this ability is lying dormant in me, I cant sit down without the thought of being an instrument of love to my fellow human, who am I? I just don’t know.

  • Rita Muller Apr 30, 2013, 9:36 pm

    I truly believe in past lives and soul mates. I believe these “soul mates” have always been here through out all time. Whether they were a past lover, brother, sister, friend… in each life you find each other again.

  • Terri Herman-Ponce Apr 18, 2013, 2:32 pm

    Fascinating blog. I only stumbled upon it today and was completely mesmerized by the stories told here. I write about past lives and soul mates myself (fiction) and it’s so wonderful to see stories about people who have been together in the past and have come together again. Truly gives real meaning to the term “meant to be together”. There are times, I admit, that I have a sense of having known someone before, or that classic case of deja vu where I’m convinced I’ve been in a particular situation or place before. Never followed up on it, though.

  • pinky parikh Feb 24, 2013, 2:30 pm

    I would like to know something brief about my past life and where my mother now resides. Is she OK? I couldn’t meet my mum in her last days.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Feb 25, 2013, 7:07 pm

      Gathering reincarnation evidence can come from hypnotic regression, spiritual readings and spontaneous memories. There can then be compared for correlations. I personally do not give past life info in my readings – and all readings in this site are either booked or you can watch free demonstrations in the chat rooms.

    • shefali Jun 8, 2013, 9:13 am

      I am very interested in knowing if my mother is fine as she too died unexpectedly and I feel that the death was not meant to be….any knowledge on this matter will be appreciated. I am also very interested in past life so if any info about a licensed therapist in Seattle it would be great.

  • azita Feb 20, 2013, 6:31 am

    I believe reincarnation is proven. I would really like to know who I was in a past life.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Feb 20, 2013, 1:37 pm

      Evidence for who you are in a past life can come through dreams, hypnotism, the Naadi Oracles and occasionally from psychic readings. But none of this can be properly qualified without evidence from the public records. I think if you search in a number of directions and keep getting similar evidence from numerous sources this will be suggestive of who you were. Gathering Reincarnation Evidence takes a lot of work and searching. I believe it will all be revealed to us after we die.

  • Sherry Jan 2, 2013, 5:50 am

    If the evidence for reincarnation truly is real, then it is terrible and cruel. Who decides that we must live on this planet over and over again? I think it proves religions are man-made to control people. How is suffering in life over and over a good thing by a loving God? It’s bad enough we have to be here in this life! And, erasing our memories is a low move. If reincarnation is truly real, then it begs to reason there is no God-entity, only a group of self-righteous pious counsel that forces others to endure the atrocity of life to their amusement. I’m beginning to believe in reincarnation, but I’m fighting it because then I’ll be too disgusted with religion and the idea of God. And, if it is true about reincarnation – when I get back there (wherever it is) I’m going to get revenge on those counsel jerks. Just saying.

    • Steve Apr 20, 2013, 7:57 pm

      I recently have ‘seen’ a couple of my past lives an had a major spiritual awakening. Check out the document Alien Interview at Roswell, it can explain why we are stuck being reincarnated on this planet. Also check out the Allies of Humanity as it gives you a positive focus and common goal for all of us. There was the first soul, and in his great wisdom he wanted to share it with others so many more were spawned into existence and then they proceeded to imagine and create the universe

    • Meok Apr 19, 2016, 10:11 pm

      I actually believe we are not only reincarnated on this planet. In one of my latest ‘dreams’ I was preparing to come to Earth. It was like a great adventure, I really wanted to learn about this planet as well.. But this would be my first time here. It’s hard to explain, but I feel, deep down, that I don’t belong. Not that I’m not integrated, or that I am alone, just a constant need to observe and catalog everything and everyone, like every reaction is a complete surprise to me. As pertaining to memories, we erase them, not somebody else. And it’s mostly a physical flaw, our brain it’s rerouting itself, making place for new information. I still remember falling asleep as a baby and thinking ‘I so hope I won’t forget that as well because it’s important’ and in the morning I knew I forgot something else…and that happened constantly until I was around 5-6 years old. So don’t fuss, just learn as much as you can and, along the way, enjoy enjoy enjoy 😉

  • kanchana Dec 31, 2012, 1:16 pm

    Hi my name is Kanchana, and I would love to know about my past life and how my previous life ended. Why was I born? How do I find out?

  • Jing Abad Nov 13, 2012, 3:07 pm

    Over the course of my life I have been dreaming of past lives. There is always a girl in these reincarnation dreams that I’m with but unfortunately we always get separated. I believe that she my twin soul.

    This lifetime a was born a lesbian. I have always felt that my heart is that of a guy and my basic soul gender is male. When I met my twin soul in this lifetime, she also confirmed to me one of the past life that we were born. She described to me the same place and identical events happened – which to my amazement also fits perfectly to my dreams. Aside from that, we have also dreamed of our future lifetimes together as couple.

    In my past lives dreams, I recalled being born as a woman during the Egyptian era. I was a princess. Also I believe that I reincarnated during the time of Jesus when I was a male with a stutter. In this lifetime I also stutter. I can recall past lives as a Roman soldier and of being dragged by a chariot through the entire city because I had committed a mistake. I was also once a captain in a ship in a China.

    The most vivid lifetime, and I think the most painful to me, was set in Italy again with my twin soul. We were chased because I had killed my rival. We found refuge in a church. After that she died on my arms, I shouted, then I too lost consciousness. Following this event my soul rises up and, from above, I looked down to see out two dead bodies on the floor.

  • Bart Nov 11, 2012, 3:27 pm

    I live in Poland and remember many my previous lives: many of them come from Scotland, England, the USA but also from any other place in the world. The soul – which is eternal – has many personalities. What we consider to be a past life memory is the soul revealed to us.

  • contessa thompson Sep 21, 2012, 2:54 am

    Was I born reincarnated?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Oct 1, 2012, 11:11 am

      Some reincarnationists believe in metempsychosis. This theory says that we work our way up the reincarnation chain from cells to plants to animals and eventually to humans. So yes you were born reincarnated but maybe this was your first life as a human?

  • Shiroma Wijeskera Sep 14, 2012, 6:41 am

    I am a Sri Lankan woman. I am married and am 50 years old. I want to recall my immediate past life or past lives. How do I do this? I am in Colombo, Sri Lanka. I would like to know where I was born in my previous life who were my parents, brothers and sisters in my former incarnation. How does a person discover thier past lives?

  • Jana Sep 10, 2012, 9:24 pm

    My son Connor is 7, he has shared and remembered several past reincarnations in great detail. He is at an age I thought he would be forgetting things, but his clarity is amazing. He is always so matter of fact, I don’t ask him he has just talked about it sometimes years apart. He has stated he was going to come with his brother Eric (age 17) but it was decided for him to wait. He has stated “God” wipes your memory when you come because “to remember would be too painful” (his words). He has some astonishment that his brother doesn’t remember him (he’s 9). He has stated he saw my baby shower, knew me as his mother before and was disappointed when he saw I wasn’t with the others waiting. He has described how God spoke to him but without a voice, how the others waited with him, how God unbuilt and then rebuilt him as a baby. He stated he remembers laying in a glass bed and watching the nurse and he was sad when he realized he was a baby again and he would have to wait to be able to talk etc.

    He has also described a small house made of rocks with a roof that went all the way to the ground, how the “village children” use to climb on their roof and he would chase them with a broom. His brother and he baked sweet bread but it was like donuts but not donuts and they had to get up very, very early before the sun. AND he remembers two bad men robbing them and he wouldn’t give them the money because it was wrong and he worked hard for it. I wonder whether Conner is recalling a past life and reincarnation.

  • GINO CAROLO Aug 7, 2012, 9:44 am

    I thoroughly enjoy reading your articles and wish that I was at your level. I’ve cheated death several times and have quite a good life, however I have this sense that I should be someone else! Does this make sense to you?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 7, 2012, 10:32 am

      I’m not sure if this is evidence for reincarnation in itself. My thoughts are that the cases of people who have past life recall tend to happen to people who have died too soon in the previous life. Just an idea, but maybe people who died early in their former life, reincarnate with the ability to cheat death in this life. Interesting thought but I have nothing to prove this as fact.
