Sandra began coasting on her bicycle on the street in front of her house when a memory flashed in her head of a little girl about the age of 10 riding a Penny Farthing bicycle from about a century ago. This wasn't the first time she had a flashback of this very same image. Could reincarnation really be possible? She had never believed in reincarnation before. She realized that it wasn't only possible, it was probably true. Sandra came to the realization that she had been that little girl who had ridden that Penny Farthing bicycle over a century ago.

  1. This is a very good story about delving into memories that may or may not be your own. I would like to think that she was the girl on that bike, but I guess that is probably something that she would never find out.

          • Many people have this “What if” in their mind. Hence there are many different faiths/sects that have some kind of belief in this theory of transmigration of soul which states that we have to be our spiritual best before we can merge with God and be liberated. Cause and effect of actions applies here so we have to keep refining our deeds to perfection.


            I don’t really believe in reincarnation. But that’s me. Plus I see no reason to believe there’s anything at all after death, hell heaven and all. No one ever came back to tell what exists there so we can never be convinced whether this belief is right or that is right. No proof and all speculation.
            But good and bad deeds definitely pay us here – right now. The best we can do is treat other humans right and keep our options open. Only our last breath will tell us the truth.

          • I have read quite a few books about people that have died and have come back to tell what they saw during their death. Those books are always very interesting!! I don’t believe in reincarnation but there is always that question in the back of my mind, “what if?” Guess none of us will really know what our experience will be when we leave this life and like you said, we need to treat others right. I do believe in karma. I believe all of our action should be right/good because either way it will come back to us and I sure don’t want bad stuff coming back to me. LOL

          • All that you say is true. At the end of the day, only one thing matters – what did we do after getting born as a human being. Not only not hurting anyone but also helping others while also uplifting our own life force/ spirit and that of others. All this while enjoying our life ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Interesting idea. Maybe Sandra was that girl, and now she’s gone back to the future! I’ve always found alternative realities fascinating. I love the idea of the ‘Many Worlds’ theory, where ‘we’ could literally be living many lives at the same time.

  3. It would so weird to have such clear memories of doing something you think of as old fashioned. I don’t believe in reincarnation, but I believe it’s a fascinating concept.

    • I completely agree with you. Sometimes I think that if God wanted to punish me he could reincarnate me into my same life again. Hahaha! Just kidding. (Actually that wouldn’t be bad if I could be born with hindsight because I sure didn’t have any foresight!).

      • If you knew what was coming life wouldn’t be life. The best part sometimes is not knowing that the good times will be fantastic and not knowing how bad the bad times would be, because you’d change what you did. I think the worst part of reincarnation would be reincarnated as a bug lol

  4. Ha Ha! If you were reincarnated as a bug…would you know that you were a human at one time? Hopefully not! If so, just imagine… your bug life would be horrible! It would probably be very short too. Some people would like to know the future…but only if it is good news and life just doesn’t work that way. We have to take the good with the bad and learn from it. Love your story, Joy. It has really put our minds in motion. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. My human always wonders where she’s been before now, but hasn’t really ever had any deja vu moments like that. However, she would have written how she had ridden one of those penny farthings in her childhood, but was a bit afraid of how high up it was compared to her normal bike. Then a few years later she got over that, decorated it and rode it in a bike parade at her school. It still sits in her parents basement to this day. =^,,^=

  6. It would be lovely to live again in the future and be a part of the new tech and alien life… not sure my little legs would be able to ride a penny bike in a previous life

I would love to read your thoughts...
