People are going to think me off the graph, but you did ask!
My Mom was absolutely convinced that "I" was present at Christ's crucifixion.
By way of a bit of background to put that into perspective, my family was not at all religious. My Dad was an Atheist and believe that Hell was on earth and Heaven was when you died, nothing more. My Mom was a lapsed Ukrainian Catholic. We never
went to church and had no religious stuff in the house of any kind.
They say that children are closer to their past lives than an adult. So if there are to be memories, they are more likely to occur when a person is a young child.
I've been haunted by a dream
since I was about 3 years old...it's the same dream and it seems so real and it's like I'm experiencing it for myself in the first person.
I remember the first "dream
" that I had about it. I woke up completely hysterical. I was crying to hard that I couldn't breathe and remember my Mom shouting at me and shaking me in an attempt to get me to take a breath. It took my Mom hours and hours to calm me down and to find out what was wrong. And I was sad and nearly catatonic for a couple of days after that.
All I could do was scream that they were hurting him, that they were killing him. I tried to go to help him and save him but I was being held back. I was hysterical and struggling and fighting to break away to go and help him. In the end I sank to my knees and cried.
Finally when my mother got something coherent out of me I describe the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, including the weather, the surroundings, the people and what they were wearing, what I was wearing. The look on his face.. everything.
As I said above, our home was not a religious one. We had no religious items in the house, not even a cross. My father was atheist and wouldn't have it, and my mother was too busy with work and home to take us to church.
She was convinced that I was there and witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and because of that she was convinced that I had been "called" and was set on sending me to convent school. The only reason I wasn't sent to one is because the one near us had closed down.
To this day I still am haunted by that "dream
", and to this day I still periodically have it and it's 100% exactly the same each time, and just as intense and just as detailed, and always from the first person like I'm the one experiencing it.
I would love to go and have one of those past lives sessions done, but I don't know where to go for such a thing. If I ever did I would not tell them my experience. I would want them to take me back as far as they could on their own, so that nothing was influenced.
