Many people subscribe to the life philosophy that we should always live each day to the fullest, since we only have “one life to live.”

However, there are quite a few people who would disagree about having only one life. In fact, many people from all walks of life believe in the concept of “past lives”  or reincarnation.

While some associate this concept with religion, many others simply believe that it is possible they also existed at another point in history.

And surprisingly, just as there are a number of dream symbols that you should never ignore, there are also quite a few signs to look out for that may indicate that you’ve lived a past life.

Scroll through this exclusive list of signs below to see if there’s a chance that you’ve lived another life at some point.

This kind of thing always makes me skeptical, but some of these are downright spooky with how well they describe me. Could I have lived a past life myself?

Which of these past life signals apply to you? Do you think you’ve lived a past life? Let us know in the comments!

1. You Have Recurring Dreams

While there can be many explanations for your dreams, if you are an experiencing a specific recurring dream, it may be your subconscious’s way of revealing a past life.

These recurring dreams can take many forms. Be on the lookout for those that involve a specific historical period or a faraway location. This is just one sign that your soul may have existed somewhere else at another point in history.

2. You Experience Déjà Vu

Nearly everybody experiences déjà vu now and again. But there is a large difference between traditional déjà vu where something simply seems familiar, and definitive déjà vu where you are convinced that you’ve lived this moment before.

Many attribute this feeling to a simple misfiring within the brain’s memory center. However, those who believe in past lives believe that this experience of déjà vu could be a sign that you lived a similar  or even identical  moment in a previous life.

3. You Remember Past Events You Weren't Present For

Probably one of the easiest ways to tell if you’ve lived a previous life is if you have memories that you logically shouldn’t have.

Do you vividly remember events that you weren’t there for? Can you describe a specific time and place even though you’ve never been? These could potentially be memories leftover from a past life.

4. You Have Incredible Foresight

Those who believe in reincarnation believe that it puts you better in tune with time  both the past and the future.

If you are constantly impressing others by predicting the future or if you generally can sense what is about to happen next, you likely possess great foresight.

This future-telling ability may just mean that your soul has been around for quite sometime, and can recognize when something specific is about to occur.

5. You Have Irrational Fears And Phobias

We all have fears of some kind  whether a fear of heights, a fear of snakes, or even a fear of water. But where does this fear come from?

Some believe that unexplained phobias come from traumatic events in a previous life. For example, if you are currently afraid of snakes but don’t know why, it is possible that you had a run-in with a snake in a previous life!

6. You Experience Mystery Pains

Do you ever get strange aches and pains that seemingly have no cause? Do you have sudden phantom pain for a brief moment, only to notice that the pain has disappeared a moment later?

This may be a sign that you experienced some kind of injury or trauma in a previous life. You may still recall the feeling of this injury, even though you are in a completely new body.

7. You Recognize Someone As A Soulmate

One of the more romantic ideas involved with past lives is that of soulmates. Soulmates supposedly transcend time and place, overcoming all obstacles to be together.

If you recognize someone as a soulmate  especially if you get that feeling with a stranger  it is possible that you were also soulmates in a previous life. This beautiful idea implies that two souls will continue to find one another, regardless of where (or when) they exist.

8. You Feel Like An Old Soul

Perhaps you are someone who feels like they have an “old soul.” This unique feeling can possibly be a reflection of the actual age of your soul.

If you feel wise beyond your years, or that you are much more mature than your age should call for, it is possible that your soul has been around for one or more previous lives. This maturity and depth will likely take you far in life, as you’ll literally be years ahead of your peers.

9. You Feel Like You Don't Belong In This Time Or Place

Many of us experience the feeling of being out of place. But have you ever felt like you didn’t belong in this specific time or that you would be more comfortable in a vastly different location?

This isn’t to say that all lonely people are longing for a past life. However, the specific yearning for another time and place can be a sign that you have lived a previous life and that you simply miss many elements from the past.

Paying attention to these signs can help you to determine if you’ve potentially lived a past life.
