Okay, I was wondering.......
I don't know if this has anything to deal with claimants, but do any of you believe in past lifes (reincarnation) or believe they had a past life as any of the Romanovs?

By the way, I'm so sorry if this isn't the right place to put this, I just had to ask. If anyone is offended, I'm deeply sorry. It's just pure curiosity. Well, goodbye! ;)

Once again, so sorry! :-[

No need to apologize, otmagal! :)  I'm often curious as well.  I usually don't quite believe that reincarnation is something that happens, but in the case of Anna Anderson (sorry to open up the whole can of worms, everyone!  :-X) I do have to wonder.  She had basically everything going for her, except the DNA.  I know it's being somewhat tossed to the side as being obselete now, but the results are still there.  This idea is even more preposterous sounding because of the fact that Franziska Shanzkowska was born before the Grand Duchess.  But maybe miraculously, a reincarnation somehow happened.  Perhaps Anastasia did die in the cellar (although no one's found her body), but her soul was put into the body of Franziska when she was possibly killed (it's been speculated) in an explosion.  It's fascinating to contemplate.  AA was so real, but DNA has said otherwise.  Maybe it is possible.........

I've gotten some crazies signing my guestbooks and emailing me about how they think they were X Romanov (mostly one of OTMA) in a past life.  It's hysterical...

Oh, yeah, I've seen those.  I've gone on one of their site just for kicks and giggles.  I think the girl's name was--oh, never mind.  I probably shouldn't say.  But she was from England and believed herself to be Tatiana reincarnated. ::) ::) ::)

Oh, yes, I remember her.  One of her claims was that Tatiana played the piano, and she had long, piano-player like fingrers.  Notice that she didn't mention that she herself played!  I sometimes think people like that exist to keep the Internet entertaining.

Those people obviously aren't satisfied with their own lives if they have to convince themselves that they're someone else. I feel bad for them.

Don't want to get too bogged down about reincarnation but just thought I'd put in my 3 cents' worth.  This is what I believe about reincarnation:

1.  We, as people, are more spirit than we are flesh and blood.  It's the spirit that lives on.

2.  There's still so much we don't know about what happens during and after death.

3.  Reincarnated "claiments" seem to have information or memories.  That doesn't mean they WERE other people...just that they have information.  Now, where that information comes from is another question....

I happen to believe in reincarnation.I believe it's possible to have memories and other information surface from a past life.I find the subject fascinating.

However seeing others websites and things of that sort claiming that they are X Romanov is a bit ridiculous to me.saying you resemble this grand duchess or have the hands of that grand duchess just seems corny to me.
I agree with JM.Some people are so unhappy with their lives that they have to pretend to be someone else,and that is very sad.

I never even entertained the concept of reincarnation until i was in junior high school. As a major history freak, I have read nonfiction all my life. I didn't read fiction by choice until high school. At any rate, I was reading a biography of Josef Tito and this particular book included a photograph (of whom I cannot remember) of a person who I knew--deep in my soul, I just felt I knew this person.  :o It was the most bizarre thing. I went to everyone I could think of, showing them the picture, asking if he looked like someone I could possibly know. Not one single person had ever seen anyone who looked like this man. It kinda freaked me out at the time, but now I'm desperately trying to find that book so I can figure out who that picture was!

That experience has caused me to desire a past-life-regression-hypnosis session, but I'm a little bit wary. I would insist on having a witness present and having the whole thing videotaped. Just for my own security and the knowledge beyond a shadow of a doubt that the hypnotist didn't "suggest" I remember things. Has anyone done this?

Great thread otmagal!!  ;D

A very good friend of mine had a past life regression done on herself.She said it was very interesting and informative.The next time I see her I'll have to ask her about it.I'll post my findings if anyone is interested.

I agree with Merrique, there's more between heaven and earth. What fascinates me is that some people saying they have memories from a past life, have always been famous historical figures. Pharao's, Nefretiti, Cleopatra, Napoleon, Romanovs etc etc.These people are highly fascinated by a particular historical figure and identify themselves with that person, in mine opion it has nothing to do with reincarnation. Even here in Holland there's a woman who proclaims to have healing powers because in a former life she was an Egyptian princess. I would rather call it.....The so romantic, I always wanted to be... section.

Sorry about my ignorance, but what is a "past life regression?"

Past life regression is the re-experiencing of a previous lifetime.There are many ways you can do this.Some people will go to a psychic,some to a spiritually-oriented clinical psychologist who use many different methods.
Some of the methods they use are Gestalt Therapy, Dreamwork, Visionary Journeys (including Past-Life Therapy), and Hypnosis.

If you've ever heard a song,seen a picture or experienced something that for some unknown reason jogs some kind of memory in you that is just off the wall and isn't something you remember doing/experienced in your past(as in this lifetime),but it's a memory that is so strong and familiar to you anyway that could very well be a memory of a past life.Every once in awhile I'll have a memory pop into my head like this.It's a bit suprising at first,at least to me it is.But I've kinda gotten used to it as I learn more about myself.

I hope I'm making sense here.This is one of those times I wish I could just send my thoughts to the computer screen so they would come out right lol. ::)

Hmm, I don't think I've had any past life experiences. Although some people say I seem like an "old man." Haha.

I do have deja vu once in a while. :D

   Perhaps some of the people at this site were once servants in one of the palaces, or perhaps were indirectly associated with Rasputin?
  I'm not saying that I was there (I actually hope I wasn't !) or that I am sure than anyone else was-- I'm just bringing up the topic. Any ideas ?
  Personally, I am undecided about the reincarnation issue however it certainly would explain a lot of coincidences!
