I can say for sure that there is at least some truth to this theory - I was a Roma in France during WWII, and wound up in a "Research facility" in a concentration camp. I remember some of what was done to me was having my fingernails and toenails repeatedly ripped off. I was absolutely terrified of getting my nails clipped when I was little, and had to look away when anyone was doing anything to my nails. I still can't stand the thought of or execute a scratching motion with my hands, even in the air. I almost threw up when a friend of mine got her nail caught in the door at work and it came off; I can't even type it out without getting super anxious.

 

TL;DR, if you ever discover that you were a victim of the Holocaust in a past life, for the good of your mental health, please don't try to find those memories.

 

I used to cry and flip out whenever my mom clipped my finger and toenails when I was a kid. Huh. My dad had a hangnail once and that also triggered a lot of freaking out. Parents were mighty confused about that.

 

I am so terrified of bears that it's hard for me to feel comfortable in the woods anywhere where bears have been seen in recent times. It would make more sense for me to be nervous about wildcats, but the idea of stumbling across a bear preoccupies me for some reason. If it has anything to do with a past life I am happy enough to be ignorant of that. I like to think instead it is because most of nature that I have visited throughout my life are in areas where bears haven't been seen in centuries so I'm pretty ignorant of how to handle a bear sighting should I experience it.

Fascinating thread everyone. I sometimes have lucid dreams of events that I can't tell the difference between dreams and memories so I've been considering seeing someone about past lives. As far as phobias, I am not afraid of heights, but I am terrified of falling. So much that the process of going down freezes me. Stairs, swings, ladders, elevators... I panic going down. It's not even really an equilibrium thing, because it doesn't make me dizzy or nauseated. One time I was in California and I visited a beach with my mother, you had to walk down a flight of stairs to get to it, and after about 10 minutes of trying to convince myself to walk down the stairs, I eventually sat on my butt and crawled down the slope. It was fairly steep but for some reason I could not bring myself to go down the steps.
