hi, sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but i need to ask somewhere.
sometimes i get these short "flashbacks" where I basically feel like a completely different person in another time and I can remember everything from that life. not that i can remember it now, just that i feel like i remember everything when i'm in that state of mind. this doesn't happen often, maybe once every month or so, and it only lasts a few seconds. i usually like when it happens but i've come out of it feeling really sad/depressed as well.
when it happens i feel like i'm going crazy. am i?
all i can remember is that it felt like the early-mid 60s and i saw a lot of thick grass everywhere. and i think there was a small faded pink house... is this sort of thing normal or should i go to a doctor?
if it is normal and these are possibly memories from a past life is there a way to make them happen more often/remember more? meditate?
i'm seriously hoping i'm not going crazy.
my father, a doctor, internal specialist, used to tell us (family and friends) with a smile that those who think they are going crazy usually won't, but those who think they won't...
psychic abilties, or the abilty to catch glimpes of past lives are a rare phenomenon.
A doctor can probably exclude psychotic phenomena, but will rarely be able to distinguish them from past life memories, lest he be a Buddhist and a very experienced one.
Very few Buddhists or people can remember past lives.
Rhe Buddha could.
Some pretty far developped people could.
But most can't.
And how can they give you answers on this then?
Eon, i would suggest that you do not take those experíences all too seriously.
Watch them arise and ebb away. Don't try to provoke them either.
If it troubles you, go to a good hypnose specialist who does reincarnation therapy.
I have heard that people got answers there.
If you feel very depressed and confused in a permanent way, and if you feel a sense of loss of reality, seek a doctor's advice.
Try to reduce stress, eat well and healthy, get plenty of sleep, supplement vitamins and minerals, and don't do drugs.
Hope this helps.
PS: I don't exclude that you see glimpses of past lives, but even if you did,-so what?
Think of it like a movie. They start, they end.
