Dorothy Eady

Dorothy Eady was born in 1904 in London. She fell down a flight of stairs when she was only three; the fall was so bad, her parents thought she had died. But she woke up, and started begging to be “brought home.” She began to become obsessed with Ancient Egypt, which caused a lot of strife in her Christian upbringing. When her parents took her to the British Museum, she fell in love with Egyptian exhibits and proclaimed it was “her home.” She eventually married an Egyptian man and moved to Egypt, where she began to become aware of what she believed to be her past life. She felt she was a reincarnation of a woman called Bentreshyt, a priestess who committed suicide. She herself had a son, named Sety, and began to call herself Omm Sety (mother of Sety). She devoted her life to the study of Ancient Egypt, and is well known for her research contributions.

Do we experience past lives?

These five kids and their families seem to think so:

1) He showed us his grave

When my brother was about 2 or 3 he told us his name used to be Austin. One day we were picnicking right along side a cemetery, when my brother took off running towards the gravestones, my dad and I followed him and found him touching a large headstone that simply read “Here Lies Austin” no name, no date. My brother did not learn to read until he was 6 and this headstone wasn’t even right out visible from where we were, yet he ran right to it. 

2) I drowned

My mother told me about a story I told her when I was 2 or 3. I told her she was the best mommy I ever had, to which she replied, “I’m the only mommy you’ve ever had.” “nu-uh, I had another mommy.” I said that my older sister and I went out to a pond in the woods behind my house. Around the pond, all of the trees were the same type: skinny with white paper-like bark. (I had never seen a poplar tree before in this life.) We put some logs together to make a raft, and put it into the water to play boat captain and climbed aboard. The raft fell apart, and I didn’t know how to swim. I tried to grab a log, but my hand slipped off. I could see my sister freaking out from underwater. I drowned.

3) Nobody’s scroofs me there

Getting my two and a half year old daughter out of the bath one night, my wife and I were briefing her on how important it was she kept her privates clean. She casually replied “Oh, nobody ‘scroofs’ me there. They tried one night. They kicked the door in and tried but I fought back. I died and now I’m here.” She said this like it was nothing. My wife and I were catatonic.

4) When she lived before she was born

My daughter once told me about her life “when she lived before she was born” and described herself as a woman with long hair who lived in an apartment with a long flight of stairs outside of it. She drove a VW Bug and wore long skirts. She then told me that she fell down the stairs and died. Her stories were startlingly vivid and always consistent. Quite spooky.

5) Her other mother

I was talking to my four year old when she began to freak me out. She was telling me a story about her “other mother” and that she “died a long time ago on a Thursday.”

I tried to brush it off, you know, whatever, shes a kid, they have wild imaginations… but then she started to go further into detail about the death of her “other mother,” whose name was apparently Sally. She has never met anyone named Sally, and I can’t recall any shows on TV she watches where “Sally” is a character. She told me that she was playing with her father’s gun that she found and accidentally shot and killed Sally while she was walking upstairs. It’s pretty weird. There are no guns in this house, I haven’t even really told her what guns are all about and how they can hurt or kill someone, she’s only four!

I think I am beginning to understand now why when I try to tell her when someone dies, they go away forever, she tells me that, that is not true. “We come back, mommy!”

3-Year-Old Remembers Past Life, Identifies Murderer and Location of Body
A 3-year-old boy in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel said he was murdered with an axe in his previous life. He showed village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough they found a man’s skeleton there. He also showed the elders where the murder weapon was found, and upon digging, they did indeed found an axe there.

In his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today,” German therapist Trutz Hardo tells this boy’s story, along with other stories of children who seem to remember their past lives with verified accuracy. The boy’s story was witnessed by Dr. Eli Lasch, who is best known for developing the medical system in Gaza as part of an Israeli government operation in the 1960s. Dr. Lasch, who died in 2009, had recounted these astounding events to Hardo.

The boy was of the Druze ethnic group, and in his culture the existence of reincarnation is accepted as fact. His story nonetheless had the power to surprise his community.

He was born with a long, red birthmark on his head. The Druze believe, as some other cultures do, that birthmarks are related to past-life deaths. When the boy was old enough to talk, he told his family he had been killed by a blow to the head with an axe.

It is customary for elders to take a child at the age of 3 to the home of his previous life if he remembers it. The boy knew the village he was from, so they went there. When they arrived in the village, the boy remembered the name he had in his past life. 

A village local said the man the boy claimed to be the reincarnation of had gone missing four years earlier. His friends and family thought he may have strayed into hostile territory nearby as sometimes happens.

The boy also remembered the full name of his killer. When he confronted this man, the alleged killer’s face turned white, Lasch told Hardo, but he did not admit to murder. The boy then said he could take the elders to where the body was buried. In that very spot, they found a man’s skeleton with a wound to the head that corresponded to the boy’s birthmark. They also found the axe, the murder weapon.

Faced with this evidence, the murderer admitted to the crime. Dr. Lasch, the only non-Druze, was present through this whole process.

To read more of Hardo’s stories, read his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before.”

Oh, cheesedeity, gave me a wonderful idea! They suggested that Zelda might have in her library of past-life journals an old entry talking about having romantic feelings for Ganondorf at some point.

So I started to imagine possible past life romances, and I really enjoy this one.

Zelda in this life was assigned male at birth. She is still Zelda though, and has the same sexual preferences as always.

This is a major point of stress for her since same-sex relationships aren’t acceptable in Hyrule culture at that point. As king, it’s very important that she keep up appearances so her people don’t reject her as a ruler.  

And then Ganondorf arrives one day for a peace meeting. He’s really just there to learn about Hyrule’s defenses before he attacks them, but for now he’s pretending.

It’s at that meeting that he encounters the VERY sexually frustrated Zelda who is clumsily/desperately trying to hide her attraction to him. Ganondorf takes full advantage of the opportunity, at first seducing the king to get her guard down, but later starts to sincerely fall in love.

But then the royal court discovers their affair. Zelda denies everything and sends Ganondorf away, telling him to never return to Hyrule or ever speak to her again.

Ganondorf does not handle the rejection well. He gets enraged and sends his armies to attack the kingdom and Ganondorf personally returns to kidnap the king.

But the Hero was waiting for him and kills Ganondorf at the castle gates, demoralizing the attacking army and leading the charge to run them out of the country.

For the rest of that lifetime Zelda was tormented with guilt, wondering how things would have been if she hadn’t betrayed her lover.

This past life thing is great! I can make as many mini stories as I WANT and it’s still part of the same world!!! XD

Past Life Dreamwork by Sabine Lucas!

The first book to approach reincarnation from the perspective of dreams 

  • Identifies soul bloodlines, the key to past life therapies 

  • Combines the author’s own experiences with case studies and dreamwork with empirical research 

  • Reveals how the analyst and client are often karmically linked 

In Past Life Dreamwork, Sabine Lucas examines “soul bloodlines”–character traits, talents, and life issues that are the common elements and circumstances of successive past lives. Found threaded through our dreams, these bloodlines reveal the forces manifesting in this life, and, taken together, they shape individuality as well as destiny within the reincarnation cycle. Though a wealth of past life related material regularly surfaces in dreams, until now dreamwork has been largely ignored as a therapy for successfully integrating past life experiences. 

Using the results of 27 years of personal and professional work, Lucas explains that past life memories help us work out karma on the macro level and trauma on a micro level. She distinguishes three types of past life dreams–classic, informatory, and hybrid–and demonstrates how to distinguish these from other dreams. Her dramatic case studies illustrate the effectiveness of dream therapy in recognizing and integrating the resonant and recurrent circumstances and ethical dilemmas that are played out in the subconscious mind. These psychologically revealing stories bear witness to how individuals are made whole through the integration of common strands of forgotten or repressed past lives. Lucas shows that the integration of past lives enriches the conscious self and also promotes universal tolerance through an understanding of the patterns of our psychic soul inheritance.

Woman starts speaking in past-life language
A woman in India suddenly started speaking in a form of Bengali that was used over 150 years ago.


In a baffling case from the 1970s, reincarnation researcher Ian Stevenson investigated the mystery surrounding 32-year-old Uttara Huddar who, out of nowhere, suddenly started to speak fluently in a language that she had never learned or been exposed to.

The phenomenon was made all the more mysterious by the fact that not only was the language a form of Bengali not used for 150 years, but the woman seemed to have simultaneously developed a second personality called Sharada who appeared unfamiliar with the present time period and was unable to speak in any of the modern languages that Uttara could.

Sharada would take over from Uttara for days or weeks at a time and had no knowledge of Uttara’s family but could distinctly recall five of her own family members including her father Brajanath Chattopaydhaya who had lived in the 19th century.

Stevenson was amazed when he discovered that each of these named individuals had actually existed in both the region and time period that Sharada had described. There was no way Uttara could have ever known about them.

“The amnesia each personality appears to have had for events occurring to the other, even though it was not total, suggests the possession syndrome more than a case of the reincarnation type,” he wrote. “This implies that Sharada is a discarnate personality - that is, that she consists of surviving aspects of a real person who lived and died in the early years of the 19th century, and who, almost 150 years later, came to dominate and control Uttara’s body.”

If I were a skilled writer (or writer in general) I think I would write this totally crazy reincarnation series. This idea might sound really random but listen: I’d write an autobiography, completely nonfiction, about my life in general but also as a queer person. THEN, I’d write another one but about my most recent past life, which would be essentially completely fiction. Then I’d write a book about the life before that and the life before that, for as who knows how long into the past. Maybe I’d skip some lives and maybe some of those skipped lives could be written about in a book of short stories. All my lives would be queer of course, so you’d get to see their different lives in their respective eras. They’d all be different, personality/sexuality/gender/ethnicity wise, but at the same time they’d have a part of me, from the first book. Or I’d have a part of them. The books wouldn’t necessarily need to be read in any order, seeing as they’d all be different stories about different characters. Maybe we’d see characters who are past lives of people I’ve mentioned in the first book, a friend for example. This is sort of a conceited idea, seeing as it all revolves around my soul but I feel like my soul is pretty old and has some stories to tell. This is all 4am shower thoughts, don’t mind me. 

11 Signs Your Soul Has Reincarnated Many Times

When we understand reincarnation as the maturation process, or evolution, of soulful energy, it follows that some of us have intuitively experienced different things in our lives that reflect on the age of the energy known as our souls. It is commonly believed that many of our personal characteristics, experiences and capabilities in this life reflect on whether we have lived before on earth. It is thought that the more we mature, the more gifted we are in certain areas of life and the more frequently we have ‘spiritual’ experiences.

The truth is that all of us have most likely reincarnated, however some of us have gone through this cycle more than others and therefore experience many of the following characteristics:

1. Recurring Dreams

Dreams are reflections of the unconscious mind, and while repetitive dreams may sometimes signify trauma, fear or issues that your brain is trying to process (“unfinished business”), repetitive dreams can also potentially be reflections of past life experiences. Many people claim to have experienced certain events, seen particular people or gone to specific places frequently in their dreams that feel very familiar, and somehow recognizable. For example, I often have recurring dreams of a 15th century castle that I have a distinct feeling of knowing very well, yet I have never seen or been to this castle before in waking life.

2. Out-of-place Memories

There are many recorded instances of young children who have out-of-place memories that later prove to be oddly accurate in detail. While out-of-place memories could be due to simple fantasies, misunderstandings or an incongruency in the ability to remember, there is mounting evidence that suggests out-of-place memories could reveal connections to past lives.

3. You Have a Strong Intuition

Intuition is the ability to balance the conscious and unconscious mind and to tap into our deeper wellsprings of primal wisdom and innate knowledge. It is said that the more we soulfully mature, the more we are closer to returning to the ‘source’ (known also as nirvana, eternity, oneness) from which our Souls come from, and from which the collective unconscious – a body of universal knowledge – exists.

4. Déjà vu

We’ve all experienced déjà vu before at some point in our lives. It’s that bizarre feeling that somehow we have already experienced or lived a moment in time before. Often déjà vu comes spontaneously, and is triggered by smells, sounds, sights, tastes and various other sensations. While some claim that déjà vu is a neurological dissonance, others claim that déjà vu reflects the possibility of other dimensions (i.e. parallel universes), and still others believe it is revealing of past life experience.

5. You’re an Empath

Empaths absorb the emotions, and in some instances the physical pains, of those around them literally empathizing, or directly feeling and experiencing what others experience. In this article about Empaths I go into greater depth about this unique breed of people. While identifying as an Empath and absorbing the emotions of others could be seen in some instances as a psychological form of avoidance to bypass one’s own problems and pin the blame on others, in other genuine cases it can be seen as a sign of a soul that has undergone many previous reincarnations and has refined to the point of transcending the individual self and it’s problems, extending to others as well.

6. Precognition

Also known as ‘future sight’ or ‘second sight’, precognition is the ability to obtain information about future events that isn’t usually available. Precognition can be experienced through visions, physical sensations and feelings as well as in dreams. While considered quasi-scientific by some, to others precognition is a very real experience and could indicate the maturation of soulful energy.

7. Retrocognition

You probably guessed it! Retrocognition is the opposite of the above precognition, and refers to the ability to obtain information not usually available about past events. These past events could be in your own lifetime, or sometime in the distant past. Of course, retrocognition unlike precognition is not easy to prove or verify, however, for those who have genuinely experienced it (and have been able to honestly verify it), this ability could also be a sign of soulful reincarnation.

8. You Feel Older Than Your Age Reflects

Some people are perpetually “young at heart” even into their later lives, and in the same manner, some people just seem to have been born with “Old Souls”. The experience of feeling older than your age reflects is commonly associated with having reincarnated many times over and this is echoed in the “Soul Age” theory where there is a certain progression of soulful development: from Infant Souls, to Awakened Souls. For example: if you have reincarnated few times on earth, this would be reflected in the age of your energy, and in this life you will display many primitive and child-like characteristics. If, however, your soulful energy has reincarnated many times over, you will display many matured and wizened characteristics (such as the ones mentioned in this article). If you feel older than your age reflects you might be a Mature or Old Soul. You can read more about Old Souls in depth here.

9. You Have a Great Affinity for Certain Cultures/Time Periods/Environments

It is said that having a great, unexplainable attraction for certain cultures or time periods is a kind of past life “residue” reminiscent of a certain place, culture or environment that your soul may have experienced in past lives. For instance, you may have an inexplicable affinity to Asian culture, Celtic artifacts, or the 19th century.

10. Unexplainable Fears or Phobias

As touched on in the last point, many believe that certain memories or experiences can pass on or leave “residues” in our childhoods and adulthood’s from past lives. Whether this is true, or is simply a form of problem bypassing, many believe that we can experience the echoes of past traumas in our own lifetimes in the form of unexplainable fears and phobias. Examples can include: the fear of drowning, the fear of certain types of animals, the fear of certain places, the fear of particular numbers, colors, objects, and so forth.

11. You Feel as Though this Earth Is Not Your Home

The yearning to find your ‘home’ can be seen as a reflection of the desire to return back to the source (oneness, consciousness, divinity). Many people feel this yearning to be reminiscent of an athlete running a long race and longing to reach the ‘finish line’. In the same manner, Souls that have reincarnated many times over express this basic need for finally completing the cycle and returning home. Feeling that this earth is not your home is often accompanied by chronic feelings of tiredness and wariness for life on earth.

Could you relate to any of these signs? Do you have any of your own to share? I hope, if anything, this article could offer you another doorway of explanation for what you experience in life.

9 Signs of Your Past Life

Have you live before? Here are 9 clues you might find in your present life

The idea that our souls or spirits reincarnate reaches back at least 3,000 years. Discussions of the subject can be found in the ancient traditions of India, Greece, and the Celtic Druids. It’s a tantalizing belief - that our spirits are not confined to the seven, eight, or nine decades of life on Earth (if we’re lucky), but that we have lived before and that we might live again.

What do you believe? Do you believe that you have had a past life or lives, growing up, working, loving, and suffering in roles very different from the one you are now playing out? Perhaps you were a different race, socio-economic class, or gender. Some even believe you could have been another living species entirely - a dog, gazelle, or fish perhaps.

Those who believe in past lives suggest that there might be clues to what our past lives were in the various complex aspects that make up our current physical, emotional, intellectual, and psychological personalities. Here are some of them.

DÉJÀ VU

Most of us have experienced the eerie feeling of déjà vu - the sudden, surprising feeling that an event we are going through at the moment has happened exactly this way before. Psychologist Arthur Funkhouser has broken down this phenomenon into sub-categories: déjà vécu - an event already experienced or lived through; déjà senti- already felt, perhaps triggered by a voice or music; and déjà visité - a place so familiar we feel we’ve been there before.

While scientists and psychiatrists insist there are neurological explanations for these phenomena, others wonder if these strange feelings could be vague, fleeting memories of past lives. You enter a house or building, for example, in a town you’ve never visited before. Yet every detail of that place is familiar. You know what’s in the next room and up the stairs. You have the overwhelming feeling that you’ve been there before. Have you - in a past life?

WEIRD MEMORIES

My daughter has “memories” of childhood events that we know never really happened. Is she just remembering a child’s fantasy, misunderstanding, or even a dream that she now interprets as reality? Or is sheremembering something that happened to her before she was born into this lifetime?

Human memory is a fraught with error and incongruities, and I’m sure many of us have memories of things that family and friends can attest never occurred. So the question is: Is it faulty memory or a remembrance of lives past?

DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES

Recurring dreams and nightmares also have been suggested as being memories or at least clues of past lives. I have experienced this type of recurring dream. There are two locations with specific details that crop up in my dreams several times a year, yet they are places I have never been to.

The first is a large city and I am walking down the street… there is a candy/magazine store on the corner, and I go in any buy something… then I go farther down the street to another building, and in the lower level is a small restaurant where I meet some friends and make the acquaintance of some girls… and later I think that I must go back to that place to see if the girls are there again.

The second is a smaller city - I get the distinct feeling of a “college town” - and I can see the specific view of a specific corner, how it looks, what’s there, how the street slopes down, etc.

These are not memories of places or events that have happened in this life, yet they recur in my dreams often. Are they memories of something important that happened in a past life?

Likewise, can nightmares be reflections of past life traumas that have clung to our spirits and haunt our sleep?

Hélène Smith (Catherine-Elise Müller), Martian Landscapes 1896

The medium Helene Smith (1861-1932) of Geneva, Switzerland was the subject of Dr.Theodore Fluornoy’s seminal book From India to Planet Mars. During the sessions with Flournoy, Helene spoke a Martian language and drew images of Martian life. André Breton and other Surrealists were impressed by her ability to “pour out messages from the depth of being” and cited her as an influence. More information here.

If anyone can share some other quality images of her drawings it would be much appreciated! They seem extremely hard to come by!
