Reincarnation ?

Hello everyone, I am new here so forgive me if I ramble. I thought I would share something that happened to me when I was very young and also my view on reincarnation which to be honest came to me today whilst pondering the book. So here goes. When I was about 8 years old my brother and I had gone swiming at the local pool with our parents. Being silly kids we decided to jump off the top diving board together,. It was about 10 feet off the ground, At the last minute I changed my mind and stepped backwards, falling off the board. I remember having time to watch the people, some watching me it seemed to take ages, I was thinking , I wonder if it will hurt but I wasn't scared and in fact I had the distinct feeling of being pushed forward towards the water and away from the concrete which I was heading for. I had time to question who pushed me . It seemed an age before I actually hit the ground, fortunatly most of me went straight into the water. But at no time was I scared, I new I wasn't alone and it didn't really matter if I hit the ground or not. When I surface from the water I was smiling and couldn't understand why people were so panicked. I told them what had happened but I dont think anyone belived me and so I have carried it with me all these years and tried to work it out myself.

And here are my thoughts on reincarnation, I would be very interested to here what anyone else thinks. I was considering this today as I have had flash back to past lives before and today for the first time I came up with an alternative reason for them. Unless I have miss-understood the book ( which is very possible knowing me) What if we have only every lived our life in this time period again and again, and say we had lived a hundered times this life, isn't it possible that in all those previous times we would have picked up information about a person or place, even something as vague as a strangers name, then in each life we learn a little more about that person and then maybe in this life because of all the information we have, if we were regressed we could bring up even obscure things and details, even create our own movie to go with it. It would all be tracable but it wouldn't mean we had ever lived it. I thought I was a Knights Crussader but when you think of all the information there is today about them and the films, I could easily have watched all these before and be fully armed with the information needed.
Well there you are, my possible version of it. Thanks for reading and let me know what you think.

Welcome Jacqui,

I think that you have really grasped CTF totally. Indeed I had not throught about it to the depth you have. Of course as we live our lives over and over again we lay down a massive amount of information about every experience we have. as such we know a massive amount about every person and every event we experience. I guess the skill is using this in a positive way. I am considering ideas for my third book ane I think it has to be how we can use this subliminal information in a positive way.

Current theory has it that it is this present lifetimes subliminal information that we've picked up and that is also why stuff dragged up through hypnosis is considered suspect (made up histories, believed to suggest reincarnation)

I agree to a degree. The technical term for this is cryptomnesia and is quite fascinating and many writers have shown, quite correctly in my opinion, that many seemingly amazing cases of hypnotic regression can be explained by this phenomenon. However for me a deja vu experience is something far more than simply a confusion of a present set of circumstances with a similar set in my long-forgotten past - but the point is still a valid one.
