Past lives and the present
Hi everyone! It has been a while since I was here on Shirley's. That doesn't mean I have lost my interest for spirituality. My experience has showed me though that it is not everywhere you find people with the same interests as here.

I have been going through some difficult years both physcially and emotionally and I am slowly returning to Life now, Thank god. After a amalgam removal I gained three autoimmunie diseases to mention some of my learning experiences lately.

At present I am in Egypt conducting a Field study through a Middle East Course I am signed in to and I will be interviewing female Egyptian Journalists if all goes according to plan.

All my Life I have been drawn to Egypt. I can recall from very early on in life that I wanted to go here. I was here for the first time when I was 23 and was mesmerized by the energies of the Sphinx in Giza at the pyramids and by Luxor and had a strong sense of deja vu at the temple of Hatchepsut. In my first hypnosis one of the first past lives memories to return to my conscious mind was that one of me being a tall extremely handsome Egyptian man and most of all an agitator in Israel existing around 60 years after Christ. I was lefthanded; my whole being on a profoundly deep level had the awareness that I back then mastered the art of some kind of Arabic or similar alphabet. Which in the present I have never ever learned. Writing from the right to the left, using my left hand. Today I am righthanded. My deep knowing informed me that I had been born in the Cairo area in that lifetime but for some reason I had moved alone to the area of Jerusalem. My parents in that Life was my current sister and her husband that also has acted like that this time around. When I ended up in some kind of trouble they always covered my back. And in Israel my present father turned up as my educated mentor. He was some kind of scholar or wise man and he had the role of a father there also.

When I first heard of the name "Misr" which is the arabic name for Egypt it was like I had known this name and what it stood for for an eternity. And what I always found tremedously puzzeling is that: How can I be so drawn to an Arabic, conservative Islamic culture today since I am a woman from Scandinavia and in so many ways do not fit in with my current lifestyle here? But considering the possibility that I used to be a higly regarded Egypian man, at least twice before, approximately: 2000 and 3500 years ago (the soul doesnt seem to take timeframes into consideration) it does make sense that I feel drawn here and feel a strong sense of belonging.

Plus the incarnation prior to this also in Egypt then around the area of what we today refer to as Luxor. In this incarnation I saw myself being one of the closest men to the Queen Hatshepsut. I believe I was working as an Architect.

And of course, there was a third lifetime where I was in this area or around Saudi Arabia. I remember standing by the Red Sea waiting for "them" to return to me. I felt so lonely on this planet. I was in frequent Contact, from what it seemed, with Extraterrestrials, very tall ones in White or Black robes. They enlightened me and then they left me here with the Earthlings that were on a very different awareness level. This seemed way back in time. but in this area geographically too.

I cannot prove that my statements here are true but they spring from regressions and a profoundly deep knowing. And a strong sense of belonging in, a to me, foreign culture, I have no biological connection to in any way, whatsoever.

Thank you for sharing your past lives experiances Mary. I found it very interesting and there is no doubt in my mind that your perceptions are true.

May I ask if you did something special to get the recalls ? Was it through meditations or hypnosis ?


Mary Sweden 01-18-2014 04:34 PM

Hi La!

When I was around 16-17 years old I had experienced several paranormal events in my life and that raised questions in me. A series of fortunate events led me to a past life regression therapist, Ylva Cronstedt and I went to her in Stockholm and I have nooooo idea what she did. I just closed my eyes and after some minutes I started seeing like a movie played before my eyes. Me being in France and what seemed like a life I had there. Then a horrific life in Sweden in the dark ages. She was guiding me and asking me questions and making me leap in time, in the regression. Totally unexpected what turned up in my awareness.

In the life as the Egyptian, my left hand was writing in the air as if I knew exactly that language. And she asked me: When is this? I could sense it was around 60 years after someone named Christ had been around. He had been around, but if he was as we see him today I wouldnt say. Someone very special, at least. As the person I was then I felt like this. And Some years after IRL I went to Jerusalem and inside the walls. I was like a fish in the water. It was as if I had lived there my whole life?

In regards to what seemed to be the life of a contactee, thousands of years ago, that came up when I for the very first time, around the age of 22 something, went for some kind of retreat that had something called rebirthing breathing on the agenda. I didn't know what that was so I had no expectations. At all. As the breathing session had begun, it didnt take long before I started seeing these space crafts coming down at me and I loved dealing with them (the ET:s) and as I mentioned it was a strong sense of being deeply connected to them and they taught me so many things. I could see the Red Sea where I was standing and waiting for their return.

The Luxor memory came to me while being on location in Luxor. Also a overwhelming sense of recognition-- dj vu--and then I did a breathwork session and a film was being shown to me. Hard to describe but some are incredibly clear. Also a deep sene of knowing. As if you recall something you Always knew but forgot for some time.

The most beautiful things with the Egyptian life that supposedly happened 2000 years ago was that they, the romans tortured and killed me and cut of my left hand. I never thought about it before but probably because I was writing with that hand. I don't know. But as I felt how I was dying. I left my body and went to the Bright Beautiful Light, there my present grandmother in this life and her mother, my great grandmother (on my mothers side), now both dead, greeted me there on the other side, as i was returning home to them.

The deepest knowing was present as I went through these experiences. Hard to explain it in any other way.

Thank you Mary for your clear answers

Seems like you can easily be brought to your past lives trough hypnosis and meditation. That's so interesting and must be useful in work with your present life I imagine.

Ive never been to a past life therapist but your experiance sure makes me think about looking someone up :)


Mary Sweden 01-21-2014 03:20 AM

Hi again Loa!

I think what I gained the most was that it explains why I feel the way I do for certain people I know or meet in the present. That it brings logic to the whys? Then again it doesn't clairfy what is supposed to be in the now and in the future. But that is perhaps what we are here to find out!? In this realm. :)

Loa 01-23-2014 03:30 PM

Mary, I like your view on this. Maybe if we manage to " bring logic to the whys" and understand our circumstances from the karmic view we have the hope of being able to have a better now and future also

" It sure takes a courage to look in honesty inside yourself and bring peace to your karma from past lives" my raja yogha teacher said tonight. I agree with her ;)

Sometimes it sounds harsh to me ... the view that everything (good and bad, fair and unfair) that happens to ourselves, people arround us and over the world, has it karmic explanation but at the same time Its maybe the only way to experiance life as a fair game and move on in peace.

Thank you again and my best wishes to you Mary


Mary Sweden 01-24-2014 11:46 AM

Thank you Loa!

I must say that I do feel strongly reluctant to refer to karma as a major reason and explanation to why certain circumstances occur in our lives. The reason I say that is because sometimes it turns into a kind of Hindu cast attitude which also justifies a status quo, encourages apathy and indifference as opposed to empathy and compassion to other living beings.

What and what not the spirit may have chosen and what would possibly be accumulated karma and not, if such a phenomena even exists at all; because who would really be in a position among the living to claim such an idea as a fact?

Loa 01-24-2014 02:19 PM

You have to excuse me Mary... but my english is far from being as excellent as yours :)

But with the help of (the precious) google translate I think I get it right and have to say that I understand your thoughts.

I havent been able to get to a conclusion for my self regarding the karma theory. It sometimes disturbs me as harsh and cruel in the content of having compassion for people who you feel like are having too much of a tragedy in their lives, no matter if it is the people you love arround you or events you see in the news. I am really sensitive for things like that. I feel a lot of compassion but also feelings of injustice and anger. Why do some souls have to experiance to live in places where war rules , hate and nature disasters take place

After the lecture I had yesterday from the raja yogha teacher my thoughts are :
- could it be that by experiancing negative feelings towards tragedy events I am in fact just adding negative vibrations to it and not helping at all ?

- Is it better to think that everything is going by the law of karma and would the thought of that help us to stay calm, be pure love and add light and uplifting vibes into sad and cruel events ?

I dont think that believing in karma has to make us powerless or less of love or inactive. Maybe it makes us more effective indeed, that is if we believe that we can make a difference in our own karma by beginning with our selves, by having the courage to take a responsibility in what we go through and experinace, instead of being more like victims.

I repeat that this is just something I am wondering about these days after what I have read and listened too, but not a place Ive reached. Not yet at least.

Like you say ... we dont know anything by a fact in this existence of us. maybe thats what makes it charming in a way ;)

Love La

Mary Sweden 01-24-2014 04:48 PM

Hi La!

It is interesting the questions your teacher left you with. I have also encountered the belief about the idea that our negative feelings would add even more such vibes to a certain event or situation. But how do you learn to master emotions of pain that arises from receiving news about a horrible event that has taken place in the world?

The strong reactions to events or circumstances may indeed cause an intense energetic outburst within us that could, like he/she describes, perhaps even be transmitted to that specific situation or person. If I'm interpreting your words in the correct way? And maybe that doesn't help those in that situation at all? Rather the opposite. But how do you master your reactions to that degree, on a planet as rough and cruel as this one?

Since I am very sensitive to feeling energies everywhere, most of the time, which can be quite overwhelming, so why wouldnt it be possible for these energies to influence events and situations too, since most circumstances involve living beings of some kind or another. 

After attending a course in parapsychology and science in Stockholm I learnt that there are strong scientific indicators pointing toward that prayers have a healing effect. And prayers are basically good thoughts and intentions going out to one or more individuals.

When you write that our karma can help us to gain more power over own lives and help in becoming more effective, by taking responsibility for what we are going through and are experiencing; would you like to explain a bit more how you mean or what you are learning about that please?

Greetings and blessings from Cairo.

Loa 01-25-2014 07:43 AM

Good morning Mary.

Do you live in Cairo or are you on a vacation ?

This raja yogha teacher and some others are teacher in a Brahma Kumaris school in my country. They believe that every soul is unique, eternal and every soul is pure light and peace but that we have forgotten it. Through meditation we can connect with the highest soul and remembered who we really were before we choose to enter earth as humans. Sometimes souls rest in the world of peace for ages before they wish to come back to live in the world of material. They say that time is a circle and that times on earth have been dark and difficult but that it hasnt always been like that and will not always be like that. Actually we are getting into more brighter times according to them.Times were karma is not so hard as now.

I think nobody who is human knows the real truth and maybe there is no one truth ?? But we can take whatever from everything that gives us the power to live better and be happier.

I think the karma vision of Brahma Kumaris can help me to stay positive and in more peace with everything that happens arround me and the world. Because If I get overwhelmed by the unfairness of the world, I can more easily get into a hole of anger and sorrow and how can I help someone to get up from that hole if Im at the bottom of it with them.

If something sad happens to me, I need people who will show me compassion by sending me pure positive vibes, thoughts, love, prayers by staying strong and being all this themselves. I think that without compassion there is no love. Maybe its all about being aware of where your compassion is taking you.

They believe that the only way to change the world is to change your own reactions to every negative thing, small and big by meditating on love and peace . And that we are suppose to be able to change our thought patterns by practise and by getting closer to what our soul really is through meditation.

Well Mary ... I hope this explains something of whats on my mind these days. here you can read more about it.
