People may have an interest in a topic for all kinds of reasons, but I don't rule out the possibility that some people on this forum may have lived in Russian at the time of the revolution. And that's something one will never be able to proof, of course. ;)


I agree with Helen.I was thinking the same thing.

Some years ago a book was published where a man claimed to have been tsar Nicholas. itīs called  "To save Russia, the reincarnation of tsar Nicholas" by Donald Norsic. I read it  and thought it was really interesting. He went through some regression sessions where he rememebered a life as Nicholas. From what he wrote I think he had a deep insight in the life of the imperial  and what Nicholas could have felt. I found it specially interesting what he wrote about the death of the <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=family&v=56">family</a> which was quite different than the official version and what we now believe happened. I donīt know what to believe about all this and I take it with a grain of salt. Itīs impossible to prove such a thing one way or the other. But I really enjoyed the book and thought it well written whether you believe in reincarnation or not.

Ok, I'm not a believer in reincarnation, but I happened to stumble onto a website that had the following passage, and I thought some of you here would be interested.  Certainly the part about reincarnation *to the past* is something I've never encountered before, but apparently there are some who take this theory very seriously.  Here's the snip:

"Reincarnation does seem to explain the concept of birth defects and other tragedies, if the intent is to have us grow through repeated experiences over many lifetimes. However, that possibility has no place in xtian mythology. I note in passing that the subject is being studied seriously by scientists. There's even a Journal of Past Life Regression Therapy staffed by well-degreed PhD's and MD's that explores lots of interesting ideas, such as the possibility that reincarnation might go backward in time as well as forward!"

I am one of the people who was a Romanov in my past life. I understand you doubt it, as many people do, however, that is your choice. And if your wondering, I was Alexandra.

For anyone interested in a book that is quite informative on the subject of Regression (or Progression)Therapy, "Many Lives, Many Masters:Discover the Healing Power of Future Lives through Progression Therapy", is imo, a good choice.

From Amazon:

"Psychiatry and metaphysics blend together in this fascinating book based on a true case history. Dr. Weiss, who was once firmly entrenched in a clinical approach to psychiatry, finds himself reluctantly drawn into past-life therapy when a hypnotized client suddenly reveals details of her previous lives. During one hypnosis session his client introduces the spirit guides who have been her soul therapists in between lives. This is when the story really takes off for Weiss, who discovers that these guides have specific messages about his dead son as well as Weiss's mission in life. No, we cannot verify the truth of this story using the limited scientific tools we have available. However, it is hard to dispute that this well-respected graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School has discovered a personal truth that has led him to be an enormously popular speaker, author, and leader in the field of past-life therapy. --Gail Hudson"

Having done Regression Therapy, I experienced it as a wholly positive thing, and agree with Kay,  that "kindness" is the key. I also believe that all of our life experiences are running concurrently, and we are focused in our present awareness...not unlike a reel of film that contains all of a movie, but only shows the frame passing over the light fixture in any given moment.

"D" makes a smiley face in code.

Three questions marks make face with the three questions above it.

Sometimes the code mixes with what you've written.

You can go back to your post, click on modify and change it.

Now, understand that I absolutely DO NOT believe in reincarnation. However, there is a very important piece of historical information [related to the topic] that must appear on this thread. I'm surprised it hasn't come up already.

Grand Duke Alexander Michaelovich (Sandro) was one of the most vociferous opponents of Anna Anderson. However, keeping that in mind, he once made a fascinating statement in regard to her.

Sandro was a "spiritist" He believed in "table rapping" and "reincarnation." He was also fascinated by the "memories" of Anna Anderson.

What he said was that either Frau Tschaikovsky was Grand Duchess Anastasia, or that her [Anastasia's] spirit had returned to Earth to possess Frau Tschaikovsky. Presumably Sandro believed the latter.

That sounds like a very interesting book Sunny,I'll have to check it out.

I'm very interested in hearing why Alexandra_Romanova believes she is the reincarnation of Alix.

Of course I expected this. And, in the matters of proof, the proof is my memories.
I never use the memory of the night we were killed as "proof" because so much is known about it.

One of my friends said this:
"Only mathematics requires proof. Sciences requires evidence, but not proof. In the case of past lives, your memory is your evidence.
"


Which I find true. Do you not think I made sure that I was not dreaming before I said anything? Of course I did.

And if you want to know one thing, as much as I valued Father Grigory's advice, I wish right now, that I had never met the man. He might have been able to cure Alexei, but it only numbed the pain. It never got rid of it.

Ever notice that most people who claim to be the reincarnationed soul of such and such are usually famous people?  No one ever claims to be some pig farmer in Podunk, Tennesee, or something!

I have jokingly said, "Hmmm, maybe I was Olga N. in a past life!"  But while I think that reincarnation is a possibility, I don't think I can pin point WHO I was.

(Although I will say, in one life, I must perished on a sinking ship, since I sometimes have nightmares about shipwrecks-and I'm fascinated by them as well.  That and something with snakes.  A friend of mine theorized that I was a snake charmer in the early 1900s and killed by a snake-and that's why I hate them so much!)
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I was a farmer at one point. And I know that most people say they have famous lives because they want attention. I don't agree with it, and I don't think people should do it.

There are plenty of people who claim to remember past lives,and the lives they remember aren't the lives of famous people.Just regular everyday people.
I can remember living in Rome during the Roman Empire.

I can remember it like it was yesterday,being a female child,running through a marble palace that I lived in,playing with another little girl.Just laughing and chasing each other.And the light of the day,the green of the grass and trees and the way the light reflected off of the marble,it was wonderful.I can remember being truely happy,just like any other child at play would be.

Everyone's memories are different. I see no reason in lying about what you were just to get attention as I have already stated. When you do that, you have to keep making up more lies just to back up the first.
