Do You Remember Now?

I've never thought much about (or believed) having a past life.

However, I found an interesting website through another blogger's post and couldn't resist checking it out (click here). It's obviously intended to be more of a diversion (the disclaimer strongly supports this) but I was still intrigued by the response I got for my birthday and for Andrew's birthday.

Me:
  • I was male
  • Born in the territory of modern Labrador around the year 1350
  • My profession was that of a builder of roads, bridges and docks.
  • My psychological profile in your past life - I was a revolutionary. I "inspired changes in any sphere - politics, business, religion, housekeeping." and I "could have been a leader."
But what I found to be the most interesting part was the lesson that my last past life supposedly brought to my "present incarnation":

"You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all difficulties of life with a joyful heart. You should help others by bringing them a spirit of joy."

Interesting description for someone named Joyce in this life.

For Andrew:
  • He was female
  • Born somewhere in the territory of modern USA Northeast around the year 1025.
  • His profession was that of a handicraftsman or mechanic (I can see him using that to justify more tool purchases in this lifetime!).
  • Psychological profile: "Seeker of truth and wisdom. You could have seen your future lives. Others perceived you as an idealist illuminating path to future."  I think the first sentence is a very apt description for him.
  • The lesson from his past life: "Your lesson is the development and expansion of your mental consciousness. Find a good teacher and spend a good part of your time and energy on learning from his wisdom."
The best part is the fact that all analyses start with, "I don't know how you feel about this" and end with "Do you remember now?" So I pose a related question to you - if you check out the site, does the description seem to fit you?

Your past life diagnosis:
----------------------------------- I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern West Australia around the year 1325. Your profession was that of a jeweler or watch-maker.
----------------------------------- Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Inquisitive, inventive, you liked to get to the very bottom of things and to rummage in books. Talent for drama, natural born actor.
----------------------------------- The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
There is an invisible connection between the material and the spiritual world. Your lesson is to search, find and use this magical bridge.
-----------------------------------

don't know about this magical bridge mumbo-jumbo, but i thought the psychological profile was kinda on point!

Hmmm, they seem to recycle stuff on this one, since ours are rather similar, but I do like the psychological profile part :)

you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern South India around the year 1350. Your profession was that of a builder of roads, bridges and docks.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Person with huge energy, good in planning and supervising. If you were just garbage-man, you were chief garbage-man.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all difficulties of life with a joyful heart. You should help others by bringing them a spirit of joy.

spongeamy and Jen, both of your descriptions seem to fit as well! Jen, maybe ours are similar since our birthdays are so close together?
