Why do multiple people recall being the same historic person?

QUESTION: Masters, could you explain why is it that different people have experienced in Past Life Regression, being the same (known) person? For example, Mary Magdalene or Jesus’ Apostle Paul? ~Mischa, France

ANSWER: All souls and Source have insatiable curiosity. Since they came into being in perfect unconditional love, they wish to find out what the opposite of perfection feels like, how it acts, and what it means. That is the purpose for the creation of a duality of positive and negative energy – so that all things are possible.

When a soul desires to answer these questions, it sets up a human existence to explore the possibilities. Usually that entails a complete human cycle from insemination through the growing stages into adulthood. If a soul just wishes to see how a single event “feels,” and if they see a soul preceding them who has had the same experience they desire, they can drop into that soul’s part and enact the event.

Consider that all events in humankind allow for certain sets of activities. Say someone has lived through the Holocaust and endured its atrocities. A soul, while examining the ultimate control of one human being over another, may wish to feel that exact set of physical emotions and distress. Since time is not linear in reality, the soul can just hop back or forward to re-visit and “live” that event.

The factual basis is that they assume the part of that actor, or actress, for the duration of the portrayal they want to have. Want to see what it was like to be Mary Magdalene during the time of the crucifixion? Or Paul during what is now called “Holy Week” ending in the resurrection? How about Charles Lindbergh as he battled across the Atlantic? Or Winston Churchill during Dunkirk? All of these are possible to an eternal soul.

These are not lives – they are incident reenactments. The soul has all the sensations of the original portrayers but is only staying for a brief period of that life. It is like an understudy going on for the main character to get experience.
