I get stories and more and more "details" emerge but then I still have to find a PERSON who "matches" the story
so seeing it and remembering it, for me is very easy . . . since I don't get "oh hi my name was X and I lived on 123 Born Twice Avenue", I then have to hunt hunt and hunt some more
to try to find the ONE PERSON who matches everything "I see" !!
also, as a clairvoyant I often "see things" in my head and later visit the place I've seen and it doesn't look like what I saw even though my "description" (and I typically give very detailed descriptions) of it was pretty much exact
weird, but true
what happens (I think) is that certain elements get thrown together and I have to take the parts and visually re-assemble them
or I find (and this has happened a lot, too) that I have to be at a certain angle to look at things and then, poof, it is a dead on match
it is always like I am a bird flying above and looking down, always like I am at 5 o'clock on the dial and looking down to my left -- always
why? who knows
anyway, finding past lives is a "journey" -- I see lots and lots of details, both mine and for people for whom I read
but finding the specific person is still a "search"
and for a search to work, there has to be something (or someone) to "find"
so unless your past life left a record, then it is going to be even more laborious (if even possible) to track
it is one thing to say I was a man who worked in a factory and the place looked like this -- quite another to find the man + the factory and the location
and then determine if the life "story" matches the life story you're looking for
I have found, (and later been forced to throw back into the sea), people who "seemed" to match who I was looking for only to realize -- after "test-driving them" for awhile
that they weren't "right"
I am also lucky in that I have my boy "William" who "talks to me" and points me in very specific ways . . . ways that later have turned out to be super short-cuts to "finding my peeps" :)
I also have a photo who I think is/was ME, who looks just like me and matches all the elements of a specific story line I'm looking for (and so do other people believe he was "me", too) -- but I can't find out who he IS
can't find his name or specifically where and when he lived (only a vague notion that, in broad strokes, would fit the photo, still not enough to track)
SO: dead end . . . and super frustrating
who knows, really, if any of my "past life candidates" are true; I don't -- although I think there is a pretty good likelihood they are
still, no one can ever know and of my "magnificent 7" so far, I may still throw one (or more) back into the karmic ocean
a journey, literally (and metaphorically) a "trip", man
