it comes to me like little movies and then, if I focus a bit more, just like when you watch a movie yourselves, more of the plot line and details start to "come to me".
you can see them, replaying, in a wild tapestry in everyone's etheric field. an amazing little cinematic "trip".
Past Lives are (I believe) quite "real" and investigating past lives is not only an amazing adventure; it is also an incredibly valuable tool for understanding your "current" life :)
it is very possible -- in fact more than just possible; in my opinion it is very likely -- that you are "living" in more than one "physical body" as we speak.
The soul often will split and, as quantum physics suggests (in a slightly different form), soul "fields" will work at a distance from one another -- because they are "connected" through a mysterious resonance.
The essence of the soul (the etheric "juice") will "experience" living in many different settings and when there is a magnified opportunity to learn in a certain "time period" then the soul will often take on the task of living "flat out" by "splitting" into several physical bodies, concurrently.
In which case, you really do live in two (or more) places at one time :)
