A Past Life Dream

Years ago I had another dream of past life recognition which terrified me.

In this dream, I was crouching behind a copse of trees. Nearby, there was a gothic looking church and an old cemetery. In the distance a bright moon, and pastoral hill. Beside me was a young woman, wearing plain provincial clothing from what I guess were from the 1600's. All around me were other women and children, and a few old men. I knew we congregated in secret for some sort of religious gathering. The woman next to me clutched my arm in terror as she pointed toward the hill. I know that this woman who was my friend in the past is now my own family member in the present, and she still holds on to the same religious karma. Riders descended with their dark leader in the forward. He was a middle aged man, and from what I could tell a rich nobleman. I watched as his cloak wavered wildly behind him, a sword in his hand. I know this man, and his soul. I would refrain from revealing his identity relating to me in this present day because I know his karmic debts paid, and he has redeemed his soul and his spiritual purpose in the present. There is no need to dredge old wounds.

The woman beside me screamed. She spoke in French, and I understood everything she said, even though I know little of the language. It was as if I had spoken it all my life.

"He's possessed. He's going to kill us!"

I remember yelling his name, but time has erased it from my mind, but I definitely knew whom this man was. He was a man full of hatred, and very intent on the destruction of our religious views.

Experiencing Recall

As the riders drew near, I remember the rush of fear. He spotted me. Aside from my religious following, I sensed that this man had a special vendetta toward me as if he were a spurned suitor. Reigning in with his sword he was about to strike me. At which point I awake, gasping for breath and shaking. Although I do not see my own death, I know he killed me, and he thoroughly enjoyed doing so.

This is the second past life dream I've experienced, and everything was so vivid and surreal. There were things in this dream that I could not have imagined. Especially, the clothing ... I've researched for hours, trying to find something that resembled the clothing in the dream and this portrait above is about as close as I am going to get, although the model is wearing something more fashionable.

Doing the Research

After more research, I found some interesting information pertaining to St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, which took place in the city of Paris and its surrounding rural areas around 1572. This event intrigued me. The fashion of the day for provincial peoples and the subject matter of that event seemed similar to my dream. Sadly, I will never know what event really took place, but one thing's for sure. I will never forget the look in the mad man's eyes or his hate for the people or that place. So far, this is my last past life experience dream. I think that when young these things come very easily, but then time passes and we forget while wrapped up in the present.

    This might sound a bit odd, I'm not a particularly spiritual person but I also have had dreams that I lived in France at this time and am connected somehow to the massacres. I have an unquenchable thirst for information on the period for even the most minor details. I visited France for the fourth time last year and I have always been amazed how at home I feel and how easily I pick up the language. I have seen myself as a middle aged woman who I believe is catholic living in what I think may be Joinville or similar in France. I know my family has done something terrible and that is where the dream ends. Weird! You're dream sounds so amazingly vivid.

    mperrottet ... sorry for getting to you soooo very late, but I've been gone for awhile. Amazing recollection and you should write about your past life experience, I find it very cathartic!

    I had a vivid dream when I was in my twenties that I feel may have been a past life experience. In the dream my three sons, my ex-husband and I all died in a barn outside of a small city in Germany during World War 1. In the dream, we had taken flight to hide from the Americans, and died of the plague, which made no sense to me. Later, I researched it and found out that there was a flu pandemic in 1918 that killed more people than World War 1. This made me think that there may have been something to the dream.

    Interesting hub - I love your writing style and topics.

    I certainly do Alastar ... I remember in the dream speaking the French language and understanding everything being said. I also recall the souls in that dream who each played a part in that life and my current life now, and how each are still dealing with the same type of karma ... it's absolutely amazing

    No, even though it was a dream ... my soul remembered.

    What I should have written ziyena is do you feel there could be any other explanation for the dream?

    The St Bartholomews Day Massacre was one horrendous event that touched off the bloody religious Thirty Years War more or less. zyina, do you feel the dream could be from a past life? You have a most interesting site.
