If there is such a thing as reincarnation - who or what do you think you were in a past life - and why?

I actually went through a “reincarnation therapy” session once (don’t ask) and found out I was a monk in a past life – and weirdly – it kind of seemed plausible (I’m totally secular in “this life” ;-)

Some sort of mass murderer. I say this because I haven’t had good karma in this life…

I used to believe in reincarnation, but that was in a previous life.

I was a volleyball.

I provided companionship to a man stranded on an island.

I laugh a little when people say they used to be someone famous. No one ever says “in a past life, I was a plumber with an alcohol problem.”

I believe we’ve been countless beings beings.

In actuality, if reincarnation is happening, we’ve more than likely lived on different planets in forms we cannot possibly imagine with our mere Earthly knowledge.

I was a frog in a past life.

Funny. I just had a past life thingy as part of a reading. I was a ripped miner who’s body was owned by the Man but whose mind was my own. I was also the five year old son of my gf who was a single “water maid.” She had to leave me home alone all day due to her job. I was a curious boy and ended up burning the house down with me in it.

I think the why is always about whatever lesson we’re meant to learn. With the miner, it was about the meditation opportunity found in repetitive work.

I was myself.
Otherwise I wouldn’t justify all those deja-vus.

I was a Basset Hound.

Because the perspective of all my déjà vus is much lower to the ground and involve much more drool.

I think I was my great aunt Alice because apparently we have some very weird things in common. I have a weird fascination with Styrofoam shapes and apparently, so did she.
