I absolutely do NOT believe in reincarnation whatsoever.....not even one, little, teensy-weensy bit. But, sometimes I get this feeling like I have lived before in another previous time. And, I gotta tell ya, it is really, really weird when it happens to me. As best as I can figure it, the time period that I feel like I have lived before is roughly between the late 1800s and about 1950 or the late 1940s.
The feeling usually happens to me when it is triggered by something I see or hear. I'll watch an old, old movie and I will swear that I remember sitting in a theater watching it when it very first came out. Certain historical events also trigger this feeling when I read about them or watch old newsreel footage about them. For example, I actually feel like I remember listening to the radio and hearing about Charles Lindbergh making his solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
I remember being alive and first hearing about Adolf Hitler rising to power or sometimes I vividly remember living through the Great Depression. Believe me, it is a very weird feeling and I never know when I am going to experience it or what might trigger it. Sometimes it's an old car I see driving by, or an old magazine cover I happen to see on the Internet somewhere, or an old song by Tommy Dorsey or Benny Goodman, or a reproduction of the front page headline of an old newspaper.
I was hesitant to write about all this. Because ya'll already think I am weird as it is. But I was curious about whether or not anybody else has ever experienced the same kind of feeling. Where you could swear you remember seeing something, or hearing something, or doing something in a time period that would have been impossible for you, because you hadn't been born yet. Anybody else ever experience "Deja You"??
