Could be wrong but I try not to dwell on it too much. Once I've become more aware, eventually I will try to find out the truth about my past lives and such but for now I just try and get on with it, no matter how old I feel inside


Hi Illumine

I have probably seen that same list. It literally made me jump up and yell yes that's me!!

Like you, I do like being alive but I just don't want to do it all again.

My friends also tell me I'm old. They say they are convinced that I'm actually 1000 years old, just in the body of a 20 year old. Haha.

Hi muireannrose,

my friends tell me too that I'm old. Your post made me laugh. Thank you

Watching TV as a child, I remember nodding enthusiastically to that query. That sentiment has stayed with me, no matter what, including 2 heart attacks, diabetes, and the whole 9 yards of physical stuff and personal losses. I think in the beginning, it was that Capricorn thing, where I read that Cappies are old when they're young and vice versa. The old saw about being as young as you feel applies for me.

Hi Silvergirl,

well I don't either really feel that age is relevant. My feelings of being old don't really have anything to do with my physical body or age, but they have everything to do with my thoughts. I find it hard to notice that people around me don't really understand me. They seem to see this world so differently.

Yeah, seeing things differently from what seems like the majority can be a painful challenge because (we're told) that we're social creatures and have a primal need to 'belong'. Yet we're not exactly herd creatures. I guess feeling better might involve learning / training yourself to appreciate your uniqueness.

I know. I have tried. And I actually like myself and how I think. But it's just that I am social by nature and I value relationships, especially friendships. I'd love to have even one friend who really truly gets me... Thank God I'm pretty sure I know who my twin is. That gives me sense of peace, has always given. But that twin isn't, unfortunately, the easiest to have as a twin because he... well, I have posted about that to other thread so I'm not going to post about that in here. Different subject.

If we imagine that an average earth life is say.. 80 years, times by 88 would be just over 7,000 earth years. However, those lives won't have all lasted up to the age of 80 so, that is just the maximum amount of years it could have been.

That's one heck of a long time!

Interesting...my TF and I bought a spirit board in San Francisco. We were eager to try it out. We've always felt we were very old souls and that we'd been together on many, many occasions. I asked a few questions and then got around to "Which year did my TF and I get together first?" or something like that....and the answer came back as 0000000 (can't remember how many zeros, but a whole bunch of them). Then I asked how many lives we had lived together, and got an answer with many numbers (I wrote all this down but lost it).

So yeah....I don't just feel old, I feel OLLLLLLLDDDDDDD!

I have no clue! I remember a past life in the 1940s. I remember one in the 1600s (as a Native girl), another in 1736 as a male, another in 1701, dying as an old woman in England. I don't know the year on this one but I was a male pirate, seemed also like Spain or England.

I think I kept coming back right away! From what I hear the past isn't really the past. That we can reincarnate in a time at any time. If that makes sense.

Time isn't linear, but like a pancake and we can travel through it to any time to be born. *shrugs*
