    After stumbling upon this website I’ve been thinking a lot about a recurring dream I’ve had since to age of 5 of being buried in an avalanche. I don’t want to annoy anybody with the details as I don’t want to be imposing on your group. Is it possible that a recurring dream can result in an actual past life? That is all I want to ask.

    Welcome timidtiger,

    You are not imposing, we are interested in your experiences. Please share :):):) And to answer your question; Yes -it is very possible. One of our members Angela Grubbs has written a book titled Chosen To Believe -her book is based on her dream experiences and research to verify a past life.

    Feel free to browse and ask questions. That is what we are here for.

    Thank you for your compassionate reply. It’s nice to feel welcomed for once. My story isn’t anything as spectacular as what I’ve been reading in this forum but I have been having this dream routinely for almost 20 years. It seems to occur more often during the winter months and during times when I am stressed out from school or work.

    The dream usually starts with a bird’s eye view of a dark haired, 30-ish, male on a pair of skis pushing himself sideways on a mountain using his poles. The bindings on his skis look very different from that of todays. It almost looks like a cable that wraps around a boot and then gets tightened by a lever somehow. The poles look like they are made out of bamboo shoots with a sharp metal pick at the end. I am wearing a navy blue one piece suit that buckles up. Next, the dream jumps to another view. This time I am looking out from the mans point of view. I’m looking down at my chest and I’m tightening my scarf and tucking it under my suit so that I can keep my lungs insolated. Suddenly I hear this loud crash. It sounds almost like a crackling. The earth subtly tremors from underneath me and I look up to see snow at the top of the mountain it is starting to slide but it doesn’t alarm me. It only looks like a little bit of snow tumbling and I have seen this before.

    I continue to watch expecting the snow to stop sliding when suddenly a huge block of snow breaks free. At this point I feel my adrenalin kicks in. This intense calmness overcomes my body and I feel this urge to survive. I start to ski down hill and out of the way as fast as I can. The snow is a little too high and I can’t seem to move very fast. I start pushing with my poles but I’m not moving fast enough still. At this point I start to feel this intense anxiety as I begin to hear a thunder like rumbling. It gets louder as look back to see it coming. It all happens so fast but in the dream it seems to feel like eternity. As the snow approaches I starting contemplating taking my skis off and running but I can feel the earth below me shaking. It shakes so violently that I fall to my side and start to slide. My vision goes black and I feel myself doing dozens of somersaults. I’m counting how many seconds I’m sliding and from there I black out. The dream use to end there but then eventually I started dreaming that afterwards I am looking down at the obstruction from a birds eye view again. I remember thinking to myself “knowbody is ever going to find me in there”. I feel this extreme amount of sorrow and guilt. I start to cry and then the dream ends.

    I wish I could verify this experience but I feel as if nobody even knows it happened. I was the only one on the mountain and I don’t even think I was suppose to be there in the first place. If this really did happen my body is most likely still covered.

    In this life I am afraid of the dark and I’m claustrophobic. As a child my brothers use to pull the bed covers over my head and sit on my chest. I would scream bloody murder as it reminded me of an all too familiar feeling.

    Do you think it is possible that this suggests more than a dream? If so I also have had recurring dreams of being a young girl, falling down an old well and shattering my knees. In this life I hardly developed a kneecap on my left leg and my right kneecap is naturally deformed.

    thanks

    You are welcome, nice to have you here.

    You said - "My story isn’t anything as spectacular as what I’ve been reading in this forum. DO you know that it is the fine details, the unspectacular person you were, the unusual situation that makes your experience ring so ture? I will dig up something I read just last night a little later on -that talks about this.

    Fantastic! This is also another indicator of past life recall, the after death experience. The feelings and emotions expressed also are very strong indicators.

    Please share more about the little girl and broken knee caps - you have my attention. :):):)

    welcome

    That was so interesting, you got my heart racing… you described it very realistically and I could just feel how I am falling down the mountain with you.

    Hi Timidtiger,
    Sounds like your brothers and my brothers would be good friends. LOL
    Very exciting story. I don't think your run of the mill dream has this much detail. Like Deborah said, it has a lot of the ear marks of past life recall. Also, the dream recurs and has been since you were 5.
    Have you ever thought of being regressed? You seem to remember quite a bit and are remembering more now but if you were interested in knowing more through meditation or regression, you might be able to go further with it.
    I, to am very curious about the girl that fell down the well. That may be related to your knee deformity in this life.
    Did you grow up in an area where there was snow, where you could have any knowledge of avalanches, where you could have seen skis or have any way to know about the attire one might wear while skiing? If not, this is even more convincing.
    Please feel free to share. We love new stories here. Also, if you get amy more details like location etc, there are some members here who are very good at research and googling things.
    Vicky

    Thank you very much for the feedback. This sounds silly but the thought of verifying the skis never occured to me until you suggested it.

    I was born in the late 70's and raised in Germany until the age of 4. When the family relocated to Canada, we settled in a rather flat farming area- there are no mountains here. I was 5 years of age around the time my memories started to surface. My parents didn’t own a television until after the dreams came about. I could not have seen avalanches on TV since we didn’t own a television until I was around the age of 9. The dreams seemed to be triggered more often during the winter months and especially after a day of playing in the snow. However, unlike most dreams, I remembered this dream in such great detail that I would wake up and go the school feeling this extremely deep, penetrating sadness. The intense feeling of grief would remain with me for the remainder of the day. I can honestly say that I’ve never felt such a profound depth of remorse before.

    I spent an hour researching old ski bindings but with no/little success. The closest picture I could find looked something like this.

    In my dream the cable and the from latch/lever look similar but instead of the leather stirrup that holds the boot in place there was a metal stopper where the front of the boot was inserted (looks more modern). The style in this picture looks much older than my vision remembers. My skis were wood but they were painted purple and polished. The back part the cable hooked into the back of the boot and the cable some how snapped down to prevent the heel from lifting. I am definitely seeing something more modern than this picture.

    I must say that seeing something that even remotely resembles what I saw sent chills up and down my spine.

    These boots were very similar. The boot laced up but there was a buckle at the very top. I do remember the boots rising just above the ankle.

    I would place the era around the mid to late 1960’s. This is the time period that seems to resonate with me when I think of this dream.

    I was dressed in a grey one piece suit. It looked like a snowsuit and had a hood attached. I think it zipped up but there were also several buckles to tightened the suit to prevent cold air from seeping in.

    The location eludes me but I feel encouraged to say Norway or Austria. I don’t know how these two locations relate.

    My other recurring but less frequent dream seems to be just as clear. I am a young girl around the age of six. I’m wearing a white frilly dress with a baby blue apron. The girl is very beautiful with long, curly blond hair and deep blue eyes. I have a brother about 9 years old. He is wearing a white blouse shirt and a pair of brown paints. I almost want to call him “jacob”. Brown hair, brown eyes.

    We live on a farm where it is our duty to fill water in the troughs for the animals. Our property is very large and the dream starts off with me viewing a little girl and her brother walking down behind the house and the barn towards where the cows grazed. The walk took a little effort as it was a far walk. Our job was to inspect the troughs to make sure there was clean water and an adequate supply. We had an old pumping well close to the front door of our red brick farm house. We were suppose to fill a bucket with water and carry the heavy bucket on the long trek but my brother and I were lazy and we wanted to make sure the cows even needed water before we wasted our energy beforehand. My brother was carrying a bucket tied to a large rope. The dream then skips forward to where my brother and I decide we need to fill the trough but neither one of us want to go back up the hill to fetch the water pail. At this time on the dream I am living through the girls eyes. My brother motions me to secretly follow him and we walk over to an old hole in the ground. It is covered with boards and a big rock sits on top to weigh the board down. He rolls the rock and pulls of the board. It’s a deep hole. It was part of an old well. He ties the rope to the bucket and lowers the bucket down until we hear it make contact with water. The bucket fills and it requires the two of us to pull the bucket up. I’m standing closest to the hole and my brother is pulling the rope and walking away in an effort to pull with better ease. As he’s pulling I feel him tripping and letting go of the rope. I’m still holding the rope and the reaction from the tension being released causes me to lose my footing. I slip down the hole and scrap my elbows, forearms, knees and legs on the decent. I land on my knees but thank god the well was a shallow one. I am waist high in what feels like ice water. It was **** cold. My body feels sore but the pain isn’t so bad. I yell to my brother to get help and he runs off.

    I usually wake up around this time. Sometimes when I am able to fall asleep fast enough the dream continues. Eventually an older man comes with a long rope ties like a noose. He’s not my father but he’s somebody I know and love. He lowers the rope and I wrap it around my waist. I’m lifted out and carried away. The dream ends here and usually leaves me wanted to know more. Since those dreams emerged I’ve had two other dreams that seems like a continuation but at a later time.

    The first dream starts off with me waking in my bed. I can hear the roosters and sounds of other animals in the distance. I’m in an older style room with an oil lamp by my bedside. The walls are cream colored with hand painted rose patterns. I look out the window and notice the drapes are beautifully crocheted. On the other side of my bed appears two wooden hand made crutches. I think I needed them to assist me with walking. A woman comes in that I identify with as “mom”, and brings me a drink of boiled milk. She rubs my legs. I feel loved. The dream fades.

    In another dream I’m a teenager. About 18 years old. I’m posing for a picture with three other girls. I'm very attractive and I definitely stand out among the others. We are all wearing white frilly blouses and long black/brown skirts. We are all dressed the same so It leads me to believe we belong to the same organization or maybe a college of some type. In each hand I’m holding a cane. It feels like 1909. I don’t know where I acquired that knowledge since it just comes out of the blue. We are all laughing and having a good time. As the dream fades a rather handsom man with whom I feel a great deal of affection for comes walking towards me while calling the name “Charlotte”. This is usually when I wake up.

    Timidtiger,

    Welcome to the forum. It sounds to me like all these dreams you had(about the girl) are the same life, each telling a different part of that life. It sounds like, as a little girl in that life, you fell and hurt your knees. The fall could very well have shattered your knee caps leaving you disabled, though probably not fully crippled. The scene in your bed with your mom rubbing your legs is probably your recovery immediately after the accident. In the last scene you were older and probably able to walk without crutches, but still needed canes to assist with walking. The fact that you mentioned having large property implies you had some wealth, even if not technically rich. For a woman to go to college in 1909 her parents mostly likely had to be at least somewhat wealthy.

    Well both have mountains that would be good for skiing. It's possible you were born in one these countries, perhaps became a professional skier, then went skiing in the other country where you had your accident. Finding records of it might be hard, but there would probably be some record of it somewhere. How often are there deaths related to avalanches? That could narrow it down. You could look for just avalanche deaths in the 1960s in Norway and Austria. That's a start anyway.

    Thank you all for the very thoughtful comments. I am very excited of the possibilities of these dreams. Today I set up an appointment with a past life regression specialist. The appointment is for tomorrow. I’ll let you know what happens.

    That’s all for now, gotta get back on the phones to vote Taylor. I’m such a reality show addict. :rolleyes:

    Hey, good luck on your regression. Let us know what happens.
    I'm a Taylor fan too and I must say I was right about him from the beginning. I think he has a chance to win it.

    Hi Timidtiger, Fascinating dreams:). Just wanted to say your description of the poles bindings and skis match well how the ski-gear looked that I had as a child in Sweden, 6-8 yrs, at the end of the 1960´s.

    Vicky - Taylor is the only reason I’m watching AI this year. His rendition of “In the Ghetto” rocked! I’ll vote for that guy until my fingers fall off. I hope you are voting too. I think he can win if AI doesn’t sabotage the votes.

    Anyways, on to why we’re really here…..

    I had my regression today and it was ok. It didn’t go as well as I had hoped but I did manage to see bits and pieces of lives. I wasn’t able to see things as clearly as for example, a dream. Pictures just seemed to faintly flash in front of my eyes and then they didn’t last long. I’m not sure if I liked my therapist very much. He talked a lot about himself and he kept rushing me when all I really wanted to do was explore more of what I was seeing. I found his technique a little irritating.

    I caught several glimpses of what I believe were 3 different lives. Each were meant to be from the age of 12. One of which, relates to the avalanche life. I think…

    The first image I got was of an old country western town; Maybe Texas. I’m 12 years old and I’m shining shoes out in front of a shoe & boot shop. I’m watching horses pulling buggies up and down the street. The buildings are wood and the roads are dirt. I feel as if the time period was mid 1800’s. I didn’t gather any other information because the therapist had told me to move on to another life.

    Next I’m viewing myself as a 12 year old boy in Vienna, Austria (I think). I’m standing out front of a delicatessen. Again, I’m shining shoes for a living. I live in an apartment upstairs from the shop. My mother is inside doing housework. I’m shining shoes to help pay for food and bring customers into the delicatessen below. I think my father owns the shop. I get two names, Reinhardt and Goldi. I’m not sure how they relate.

    My next flash is of me lining up with other children. We are to enter a room. My sister in this life, who was my buddy in that life, was lined up in front of me. One by one we enter the room. I’m told to stand over a mark on the ground. A man tells us we are going to have fun but I don’t believe him. The man leaves and the room fills with vapor and orange/red stuff. I hold my breath and shut my eyes as long as I can until I start to convulse from the lack of air. My eyes/nose start to burn and my lungs fill up with foamy saliva until I suffocate. 1942-43 comes to mind

    I float away….

    My therapist tells me to move on to something else.

    I see myself floating over a 50’s style town. I float down towards a house in the suburbs and float around the empty kitchen. I see a swiss style coo coo clock. It seems eerily familiar to me. I enter another room and see a woman taking a bath in her clothes(???). She doesn’t notice me there. I enter another room and see two young boys. They look about 12 and 10. The 12 year old has similar facial features as the man I see in my avalanche dreams. He has the same big crooked nose, dark hair and very dark eyes. 1954-55 comes to mind. The therapist starts closing up the session and leads me out of relaxation state. I feel a sensation of floating and the date 1968 flashes in my minds eye.

    Things seem to fit together like a puzzle. I’m still processing and trying to relate information. Most of the images were viewed from an audience’s perception. I was instructed not to involve emotions but I think I felt they were of me.

    Timidtiger,

    I'm sorry you didn't like your therapist or his methods, but to me it sounds like a succesful experience, because you found out a lot of your past lives. :thumbsup: Even if you are not sure yet of what you saw, the pieces of the puzzle will come together in time. I hope you wrote down everything you experienced.

    I was disappointed after my first regression, too as it wasn't anything like I had imagined. But later I've realized it was a succesful session and I really remembered bits and pieces of my past lives even though I highly doubted it back then.

    I think you could try self-regressions. That way you'll have all the time you need to explore those lives and no one is telling you to move on or stop. :)

    Good luck!

    Karoliina

    HI timidtiger,

    I am curious - do you know why you were instructed to NOT include emotions? Seems like a very odd request and in my mind - eliminates one of the main reasons to do regressions in the first place.

    I look forward to hearing more of your experiences.

    I agree with Deborah timidtiger. Experiencing the emotions of PL memories and dreams is an important part of healing and closure. They may also be important to your personal and spiritual growth. Without feeling the emotions your dreams would be like watching silent movies.
