5 Signs That You’ve Experienced A Past Life Dream

Sharing is caring!

Did you recently wake up from a dream that seemed very odd…or even…somewhat enlightening.

When we wake up, often our memories don’t often come so vividly but we feel something. A calling. It feels as though you’ve experienced this before, right?

And it isn’t just childhood experiences either. It feels like long before this and only now, as an adult, are you actually discovering a glimpse into your past life.

Today even recalling a past-life experience is becoming commonplace as is experiencing the dreams themselves. No longer do we need to shy away for fear of judgement or ridicule.

The Past Life Dream Experience

Once we rest and go to sleep, our conscious mind has a well-deserved rest from the daily clog of never-ending thoughts. It’s during this time that our sub-conscious mind (some call it the unconscious mind) is able to take over. After all, the sub-conscious mind is much more connected to the divine source energy.

Have you ever gone to bed while feeling flat, exhausted or even angry? When you awaken, you feel much better apart from perhaps still feeling a little sleepy. This is an indication of your subconscious mind working and creating subtle changes while you rest.

The Past Life Dream Experience

When we sleep, we have our sub-conscious attempting to communicate with us about a variety of things that both trouble us and excite us. This includes our relationships and upcoming decisions that determine our future.

Not only this, but it’s a chance to re-visit past lives. It brings up such experiences, memories and addresses karma that has been carried upon into this physical existence.

The question then is: How can we know if we’ve had a true past life experience in our dream?

Here are the 5 key signs you should be looking for

1. You Have a 3rd Person Perspective

You’ve probably had a dream recently where it was an experience through the eyes of someone else. Like you felt you were someone else and not yourself, even though you were indeed present.

Easily the most common sign of a past life dream is experiencing the dream as someoene else. It feels like you but the age, height, persona and even skin color may be of another being, either human or animal.

Many have reported suddenly knowing the skills of another language or tangible skills to undertake jobs such as woodworking or music. On the negative equation, you may find yourself with a gun or sword in your hand and on the battlefields.

If you have felt “This is me, but it isn’t really me…” then this is a tell-tale sign. You’re inside the body yet also observing them from the outside too as a 3rd person, with common jumping between both.

On the bright side, people often experience the desire to learn new skills and talents from these dreams. It’s as though we can remember and pick up skills very quickly through our intuition and sudden desire to learn more. You’ll be surprised what you can manifest alone from what you learned in a past life.

2. Strong Past Life Details That You Can Remember

When you wake up from a dream and suddenly you can remember those specific details about where you were, who you were talking to and even what you were wearing, then you’re already on your way. Often we reach for a notebook to write down these details before we forget.

What’s next is even more remarkable; we’re in past times. The clothes we wear and the places we’re at are certainly not of this time. You may see castles, old houses and odd clothing. You might even be experiencing an event that’s written about in many history books.

Details in past life dreams

Seeing past events in dreams will be very clear and your sensations will be heightened just as if you were in a cinema. When you’re there in the moment, you’ll feel like “I’ve been here before!” and feel like you’ve come home. Indeed you have.

Sometimes you may actually be dressed in your normal and modern-day clothes, yet be in a past dream in times gone by. Either way, if you can vividly remember the details where those around you are certainly not of this time, then you’ve certainly had past life experiences in your dream.

3. You’ll Have Repetition Over Several Months

Do you keep having the same dream over and over again? We don’t mean each night (though that does happen) but we do mean your sub-conscious keeps re-creating the same experiences.

It should almost feel like a movie on replay. You take one action and do another, while being in a time that’s not of this present moment. Past life dreams commonly happen more than once and it’s totally normal.

Past life dream tree

Your sub-concious mind is the repetitive type. It only wants to feed you what’s already there and indeed those experiences that you’ve had in times gone by. It allows us to observe all that has ever been.

These reoccuring dreams are a positive sign that you’re back in the past and you can’t influence a change in direction. Your higher self is often completely paralyzed and understands how each step will unfold, while you as the observe move through that very dream.

4. Your Dream Just Feels Very Different

These dreams of the past life are certainly much different than your other dreams. When you awaken, you’re ALIVE and excited to remember all the juicy details before you forget everything in 29 seconds.

It’s these types of dreams that actually you won’t forget. Either you’ll revisit them in the future or in the day-to-day life, you just remember exactly what happened. You might even recall them to your closest of friends.

In fact, some of your friends might even been in your dream. Soulmates jumping into our past life dreams is actually a common occurance and is a strong representation of past and possible future connections.

These different dreams are a chance to learn and reconnect with ourselves, both past and present. Many of us look to deepen our knowledge of spirituality and past life regression in the months following a dream that felt very different.

Often it’s karma rising to the surface and a chance to brush it away. You may find a chance to learn about yourself and move forward in an important decision which has been lingering for months.

5. Your Desire For Spiritual Advancement Is Explained

Are you the type of person who rushes for the New Age section in any book store? Do you open up YouTube and look for the new yoga wisdom or meditation video that’s just been uploaded? If that’s you – then your dream could very much explain this outcome.

These behaviors are very common for those on a quest to better understand themselves and their past life dream experiences in the conscious world. Spiritual advancement is after all very much tied to experiences in lives gone by.

Spiritual advancement

Everything starts to make perfect sense. The things you reach for and the connections you have with others. You’re probably beginning to connect closer with those which mimic your spiritual journey and discuss topics that others might seem as too far-fetched.

Such revelations and desire for spiritual advancement certainly carries over from past life. Tapping into our dreams and learning the lessons is only one facet but just as important, as there is much to learn about ourselves and the karmic energy that we posess.

Children and Past Life Dreams

Children are the most likely to experience a past life dream. Sometimes they will share details with their parents though often they keep such details to themselves, as each day in their physical existence presents much more fun and exciting outcomes.

It’s adults who believe more in past life dreams, yet children get to experience more. If you are a parent, we do recommend you sit down with your child in the mornings and ask them about their dreams. Listen intuitively and be present in the moment.

There will be times when your child describes dying in a past life dream and seeks comfort and security with you. If this has happened, then the University of Virginia has created an excellent resource to help find closure and understanding.

It’s Your Turn

If you’ve had an exciting dream that felt like you were in ancient times, then don’t ignore this. It’s very likely your sub-conscious mind remembering a past life and is tied closely to reincarnation.

The dream itself might seem weird yet vivid. You might see some notable numbers on your clock showing alignment and meaning. Everyone experiences such dreams differently and uniquely. After all, it’s our own personal quest through this psychic world which has strong ties to times gone by.

It’s your turn to go forth and learn from your past dreams while letting go of the negative energy. You’ve got this!
