Ancestral Memory

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comWe have all felt, at one time or another, a sense of familiarity with a place, person, or situation, or even a sensation, without knowing the reason why. Some people may have a talent or ease with some things even though they have no prior experience with it. I firmly believe it is because of memories from past lives, and more recently I also came to believe, it is from our genetics, or our ancestral memories.

Some time ago, after scrutinizing my natal astrology chart’s North Nodes, I found I must have reincarnated into this lifetime. In my past last lifetime I was born during the 10th century in Siberia. After doing a past life regression meditation, I found I was an actress, dancer, inventor, detective and craft artist in that lifetime.

I could not tell if I had children or married. Family did not seem to stand out in my memory. Instead I remember I was a career woman. My physical appearance was a lot different from now, but I was a woman and I sense I was tall like I am now. I did not sense a religious affiliation, but felt more spiritually connected with feminism.

The skills and memories of living I had during that life evolved and continued into this life. I believe this was a soul travel connection, where the soul travelled until it found a situation and perfect life to reincarnate into, to continue the soul lessons only achieved in earthly manifestation.

I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times ~  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I now continue to search my psyche for memories that take me forward into my current lifetime. Recently, however, using a Christmas gift of a DNA test kit, I found to my great surprise, that I was part Siberian! I have Siberian ancestors from more than a thousand years ago. Maybe I am actually one of those ancestors? I have no idea who they were.

This lifetime was a soul continuation from when I was Siberian. This led me to understand myself so much more, explaining my otherwise unexplainable affinity to certain experiences, characteristics, and capabilities, including how I love winter and dislike hot weather.

I also began to research genetics in connection to reincarnation. There are many great studies on genetic memory, and in future posts I plan to write about my conclusions. For now, here are some clues to look for in yourself, to see if you are an old soul who has lived several or more lifetimes.

In psychology, genetic memory is a memory present at birth that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is incorporated into the genome over long spans of time ~ Rodolfo R. Llinas

  1. You have memories that feel like memories, but have no current connection with you at all. For example, you think of mountains and a well, or a strange design. When you see these things, it triggers a memory, but you have no idea why.
  2. You are highly intuitive.
  3. You feel a sense of Déjà vu when you encounter certain people, places, objects, and experiences.
  4. You have precognitions or an ability to glimpse the future.
  5. You have retrocognitions or the ability to see into the past, especially about information that is not available. You can see the truth about what happened. I advise that when you have these retrocognitions, you do not talk about it much. Instead research it!
  6. You feel that you are older than you are. You may also play out traits no one understands. For example, I know of a woman who found that her DNA carried many Neanderthal variants. She is very strong and outspoken and feels a very deep connection to ancient Goddess cultures.
  7. Your parents tell you that at birth, you opened your eyes and looked around. You most likely cried only briefly, enough to clear your lungs, and then you looked around at everyone, interested in your new lifetime, environment and connections.
  8. You feel very much connected to certain time periods, eras, cultures, and environments. Your soul was certainly connected to these times. Look into your family tree and ancestry to discover clues.
  9. You have dreams of flying and outer space, as though you lived among the stars. You did much space travel before you returned to us.

Have you experienced any of the above? Then you might just be an old soul who has lived many other lifetimes. Perhaps you have different reasons or other ways to tell that you are.
