I have long felt connected to the Scandinavian countries even though being born and bred in Brisbane, Australia and living on the other side of the world. After many years I now have had the privilege of traveling to two of the three countries both Norway and Denmark and the startling beauty and history of both these countries is truly magnificent. How and what of these connections I feel? Past lives or some long forgotten school book from early schooling. Considering history was one of my worst subject in my schooling years, I consider the forgotten school book not a option. What then I ask? Past Lives? Whether you believe or not, most people consider the possibility at some stage of their life and depending on their beliefs or inner knowledge come to one of three considerations, Yes ,No or I don’t know. Personally I have long felt that something else survives beyond that veil of death.
Many years ago when I was detecting for old objects I was lucky enough to visit Denmark for the first time this lifetime and searched for old metal and coins from a lost era of time. Among the periods of most interest was the Viking era, one of pride, battle and exploration. I can identify and almost feel that period of time, where woman were trusted and respected from their menfolk. My good friend Andrew who now resides permanently in Denmark has found plenty of objects from this period of time and every time he unearths another time piece I curse my luck I am not at his side. During meditation at times I have been thrown back into a boat with the waves lapping at the side, smelling the fresh salt air and thinking of a viking period. Is this my imagination or a flash from the past? Most of us if we are lucky enough to travel away from our birth place usually have a desire to travel to a certain country or area, why is that? Could it be memories of the past?
I have a feeling that my Viking/s past lives where probably not my most advanced as a soul. Paying penance in the future for the deeds in this time. What the hell, that’s how we learn as a soul isn’t. Well the long and the short of this is that I truly believe I have experienced at least two lifetimes as a Scandinavian warrior. That is why I feel so alive and familiar with culture and passion in Norway and Denmark.
What do you feel about Past lives any experience?
