Recurring Dreams and Reincarnation

Updated on February 26, 2010

Dreams or Realistic?

 Since I was little, I always wanted to believe that reincarnation was true.  It made sense to me, because after death, some of the angels in heaven would want to come back to Earth and try to live a better life than the last, or experience something completely different.  Then when I was a teenager, I was confused about religion, so I didn't know if I wanted to continue to believe in reincarnation.  During my twenties, I started believing reincarnation again, because I kept having dreams about me living in the late 1800's.  They kept coming back and the stories were getting longer and stronger.  I got to know what I looked like and my family at the time.  They were nothing like the family I have now.  Their personalities were different than each other.  I kept wondering if this family really did exist or was it my imagination going crazy.

The Land

 The family came from England and first settled in Canada and then New Hamshire.  I don't know why NH, because I never went there.  Well, I haven't been to Canada either.  The kids in these dreams loved hanging around the east coast or close to the east coast of New Hamshire and they would either go swimming or just hang out and socialize near one of the lakes.  The area where the family lived had tons of trees...tall trees.  Some of the grass was tall, and some of the weeds were visable.  People did a lot of walking on the dirt paths to the shop or to school.

Of course, I had to do some research on the internet to see if the images of New Hamshire were the same as what it looked like in the dreams.  They were very close.  It became very eerie to me.  I have been trying to figure out how I had an idea what NH looked like then.

The Family

 The father was a retired soldier.  This man did treat his children as if they were his own team of soldiers.  He was heavy-set and had white hair and a long mustache.  He was a bit older than his wife.  The father damaged one of his legs during one of wars he was involved in, and spent the rest of his life limping.

The mother was a very easy-going person and let her children be themselves.  She loved being a homemaker.  The mother had dark colored hair and was petite.

The sister of the mother was young, and she lived with this family.  She was a sister figure to the her niece and nephew.  Sometimes the kids forgot that she wasn't their big sister.  The aunt also had dark colored hair.  She did help the parents to keep the children in line.

The older brother was a soldier in the Spanish-American war.  After he returned, he was a quiet person and did not like to talk about his experience during that time.  He only became a soldier because he wanted to make his father proud.

The younger brother didn't have any interest in fighting in wars.  He lived in his own world and was sensitive and gullible.  Many people around his age walked over him by making him into their slave.  He was talked into doing their school projects and doing their own chores.

Then there is the sister - a twin of the younger brother.  This was me....I have been guessing.  She was more into her love lives more so than her own family.  When she was a little girl, she promised her mother and herself, she would protect her twin brother from the people that would treat him badly.  When she met her first boyfriend, she started neglecting her brother.  She discovered it was too late to be that protector when he died at a young age.  The rest of her life, she lived with that guilt. 

Ending Thought

 I know that this sounds pretty crazy to you, but these people kept flashing back into my head every now and then, and they seem so real.  It feels more different when I am writing my other stories.  The characters feel more made up.  What do you think?  Do you think that this story really exist or is my mind making this up?

      I don't know what's happening to you but I feel you. I've been experiencing a lot like that. I also have reoccurring dreams, and sometimes they are so realistic and the place is some what familiar.

      I had this same exact thing happen to me for years. It started when I was nine and moved into our house with my parents. The house was super old, just a little remodeled. I had the same type of dream, it getting more and more detailed every time I had it. I'm 20 now, and recently moved out of that house. Weird thing is, I haven't had that dream since I moved out. I contacted many people and they've told me that the house mustve had some type of connection to me that it was living what happened there, through my dreams. That instead of the little girl who was in the situation, they replaced her with me, showing me every detail of every thing in the dream.

      I had a recurring dream. at least 3 times but they stopped recently. i dreamt about this little girl with blond hair. she was from the 18th century. every time i dreamed of her, it was like i was looking thorough her eyes. but at times just watching her.

      I don't think I did see this in a movie, because everything that went through my head was so detailed and these flashes of different events come every once in awhile, but it is interesting stuff.

      Thanks for reading my article and leaving a comment.

      This is great Kimmie! Glad I read it. Really interesting how you dreamed right down to the details. You think there's a possibility you saw a movie with these same type characters? Just an afterthought. But anything is possible.

      I found your hub very interesting. I think recurring dreams can very easily be an indication of past life experiences--I know many will say we can't prove that reincarnation exists, but I don't feel the urge to try. I think your dreams certainly could be an indication of a previous life, or something.

      I have written hubs both about recurring dreams and reincarnation and invite you to read them if you wish.

      This was interesting to read, thanks for posting.
