Ever happen to someone? So far it's happened to me only once.
Let me explain...
A couple of years ago I woke up one morning and thought it was 1943 and the first thought in my head was, "ugh, when is this war going to end...?" Then I realized what the real year was... it's kinda funny!
Anyways, I just wondered if anyone else has had any similar experiences? Just a thought!
Actually, yes! This has happened to me! Only once, but it was memorable.
I couldn't get to sleep one night, and spent much of it tossing and turning with my memories turning over in my head. I rolled onto my side, and all of a sudden, there was my old room! The door was where it was supposed to be (right in front of me rather than behind me and a ways away, like it is in my room now), and the walls were my old walls, not the pink ones I have now! And then, just as quickly as it came, it dissolved. And I was back in my normal room, with my normal clothes, and my normal surroundings...
It was very disorienting, and more than a little bit disappointing.
Verzeih mir, bleib bei mir Und ich sagte noch: Vergissmeinnicht.
That's so interesting. I've never had anything that seem that fresh to me, because even dreams leave room for questioning the experience. However, has anyone else ever done stuff like this? When I was like... 8 (?) I was so, so afraid of our house burning down that I kept a pillow case with all of my favorite stuff under my bed. Another thing is that sometimes, I'll catch myself saying things like "typing me" instead of "texting me" and refer to the fridge as the "icebox." Grant it--I do love old movies--but it's seldom that I have time to watch them, much less pick up a unqiue vocabulary.

Oh, man, this just happened to me yesterday morning. I woke up at around 5AM. I almost tore from the blankets to the bathroom to change. Inside, my head was screaming 'I'm late for a meeting with the Fuhrer!!' but luckily I stopped. Imagine how shocked my mum would've been if I didn't stop..
Well recently I did wake up and found myself calling out the name "Danny" over and over. I was never close to anyone named Danny in my present life, but I believe that he was my husband in my past life as Katie in WWII Germany. I believe that he was an American soldier, and we lived in Wiesbaden. I died during childbirth, so we were only together for about 3 years.
Interestingly enough (along with all of the other PL "strangeness" that I've had going on lately) I did have some interesting episodes a couple of nights ago.
Bear in mind that when I was a small child I sleep-walked a lot. I also had a doozy of a sleep-walking episode once when I was a teenager. I don't sleep-walk like I used to anymore (I used to walk around the house, have conversations with people, get ready for school, etc.), but I do have times when I will suddenly find myself standing in the middle of my room getting ready for work in the middle of the night. This only happens once in a great while nowadays, but a couple of nights ago I did it 4 or 5 times!
I've never done it more than once a night so I really don't know why I kept at it. I had never attributed this phenomena to any of my past lives before now. But, since this happened right while all of this other stuff regarding Hans' life has been going on, I can't help but wonder if the two are somehow connected.

I do think that during some of my nightmares about being in Stuttgart during WWII when it was being bombed, and I am in the midst of a blazing inferno - was so real that for a time I actually thought and felt that I was "back there" and that it was really happening. I woke up from these dreams so drenched in sweat that it was as though I just got out of a swimming pool, that's how intense it was. I think that in a certain sense when we have these dreams that are so vivid and real, it is like we do go back and re-live the event.
