Ye, yes i do believe so, i have in someway always believed that, whenever i saw pictures of the tsarevich i felt oddly connected, like those are my eyes looking back at me, thats my dog, and thats my family. my house. like it is all a strange dream i reach for but can never seem to fully touch..  
All this. . .and Nothing More . .

I'm very Catholic and in principe, I don't believe in reincarnation, but there is some odd things I can't explain. When I like an historical subject, I feel a personal connection with it. In the case of the IF, it's like I knew them somewhere in some far time. I saw they photos and I feel they are my relatives or something like this. And the must odd thing it's that I was speaking about OTMA with an old uncle in a family party reunion, and he said to me: "You know? I always felt we are related with those people in some way. I can't explain this".

Of course, this is crazy.  ;D

I feel very close to Olga, but it is just for I'm a little like her: a big reader, I'm sometimes moody and harsh, don't like to dress properly when I must go to a party, and I argued with my mother when I was a teen. I'm also very sensitive, and feel religion very deeply in my soul. I'm not a bit like Anastasia!  ;)

hello, i wrote the PAST LIFE? OR COINCEDENCE? topic. I do believe in reincarnation &am planning a regression.
first things first:
I have odd characteristics that are unexplainable for my generation. If youve ever felt you were born in the wrong time, ditto. I resembla Mashka quite alot, but that does NOT in any way lead me to believe that I was her in a past life. Yet, my statement stands that I WAS a Romanov-life's journeys will lead me to discover whom.
love,
  sofi

I don't believe in reincarnation. I believe you go to heaven to be with God.

If I wasn't at work (looks furtively from side to side to make sure no one's watching) I'd be ROTFLMAO.

Come on now, comrades!! Didn't anyone here ever go to Sunday School? Of course there is a famous reference to reincarnation in the Bible--the New Testament no less! (I guess somebody in the Early Church overlooked this one when they were doing all the weeding-out of heretical ideas ;D). Okay, here goes: Chapter and Verse(s)--literally: Luke 9, verses 18 & 19: "One day when Jesus was praying in seclusion and his disciples were with him, he put the question to them, "Who do the crowds say that I am?" "John the Baptizer," they replied, "and some say Elijah, while others claim that one of the prophets of old has returned from the dead." I'm quoting here from the New American Bible, which is a Catholic Bible, but check it out in ANY Christian Bible, Catholic or Protestant, I promise it's in all of them! (With slightly different wording, of course) Oh, and hey, another reference in the same Book (I'm quoting this time from the classic King James Version--just to be fair and balanced ;D) Once again, Book of Luke, Chapter 9, this time verses 7-10: "Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead; And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him." So there you have it--straight from the Good Book itself!! ;)

You are quite right Stacey with the quotes. I would like to add another... there is the story of the man born blind. They came to Jesus and asked Him "Whose sin is it that he was born blind? His own or his parents?" (how could the man have sinned IF he WAS born blind?)
The answer given had nothing to do with reincarnation. One would think the idea should at that point been dismissed as false - nothing was said pro OR con.

So it seems that there was a notion of people coming back at times. It is also interesting that the church councils did not codemn the idea until the time of Justinian & Theodora.  Some have said that Theodora, who lived a somewhat less than savory life prior to becoming Empress, wanted that idea shut up. Feminine persuasion?

It's also interesting to me that everyone always imagines themselves to be "stars" in their "prior lives." Whatever became of all the nobodies? And what does it matter who you were as compared to who you are? Perhaps if their is a basis for reincarnation then I would think that we should be concentrating on the here and now - the reason for returning.

I believe we all need and deserve a fantasy life, it can be healthy. It only gets to be unhealthy when we can't discern the difference between fantasy and reality.

OK OK so I'll lighten up...

I'd like to tell you who I was in my most illustrious lifetime but you'd never believe me anyway.  ;D
I guess I'll just hold onto that to make myself feel better about the present.

Maybe the Imperial Family is running around somewhere today in new bodies, maybe not. Does it really matter?

"aprlor games" Re:  past lives?

No offense to those members who are SERIOUS about regressions. I too can say I have had uncanny experiences....

However this is all starting to look exactly like the same parlor games that very rich and very bored Victorian "society ladies" played!  

This is about the right time for a Rasputin.
Is there a Rasputin in the house?

As it happens, Elijah did not die, but bodily went to Heaven. Christ's reference is not to a reincarnated Elijah, but that St John the Forerunner is in the same spirit as Elijah (and no I don't mean he has the soul/spirit of Elijah here.) This is what the Church Fathers and Mothers have to say about that passage. Christianity has never accepted reincarnation of one person into a different person (or worse an animal).

As for the old prophets etc risen from the dead, what it is referring to is their reanimation - quite different from reincarnation. Lazarus was reanimated or resurected. Wherever there are cases of a corpse coming to life again in the Bible, it is always as the person who they were before death.
