My First Time Recalling a Past Life

By June 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Focus Friday - Past Life Recall - My first memory of a previous lifetime came to me in a "flash" in the middle of the night several years ago. I had been experiencing pelvic and low back pain for several days and sleep did not come easy. What little sleep I did get was fitful. After several hours of tossing and turning I got up to go to the bathroom.

When I returned to the bedroom, rather than laying down right away, I sat on the edge of the mattress. I just sat there in the dark with my hands in my lap for awhile wishing my back would stop hurting so much. I was certainly not in my comfort zone.

old handsI glanced downwards and noticed my hands were different, they looked aged and worn. They were not the hands of a young woman in her twenties (my age at the time). After examining my hands more closely and feeling oddly out-of-body I observed more oddities. I was wearing a gray button-down dress draped loosely over a foreign body that was uncomfortably bloated in its midsection. Not my hands! Not my body! This not-me body was also wearing a heavy pair of scuffed and badly worn work boots on her feet. I felt very confused.

Then, in a flash, I was on my knees scrubbing a stairwell. I instinctively realized I was a maid or servant who had her work cut out for her. Apparently I was in someone else's body, no, not someone else's body, but as ME in another time period.

As soon as I came to the realization what I was experiencing I was yanked "back" to my self, or rather, back to the current body my spirit is housed in. I found myself once again sitting on the edge of the bed but in my current more familiar body.

I laid down and wondered about the scrub woman (this other me) for a bit and wished I had been able to see her (my) face. It wasn't long before I fell into a restful sleep and later awoke feeling much better and GRATEFUL that my life this time around is not as harsh or troubling.
