It is a common belief that when one dies, they come back as another lifeform. This means in another life; one could have been an explorer or a famous ruler. Some people can remember their past lives quite vividly while others have no clue that they lived before they are living now.

This is all an aspect of reincarnation. Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, can begin a new life in a new body. This concept is found in Hinduism, Spiritism, Theosophy, Eckankar, and in many tribal religions.

There are some aspects of a previous life that will carry over to the life one is living now. It all has to do with memories because they reveal much about our true nature. Based on one’s memories, it is possible to determine what one might have been in a past life. Maybe you sailed the open seas as a pirate, or maybe you were a Russian aristocrat.

Not matter the past life, the true self will always stay the same. This is why it may be possible to determine who someone was in a past life. Learning about a past life is like learning more about one’s self. It is also possible to use the experiences gained in a past life to better the life one has now.
