Reincarnation Stories
Two Lighthouses
 

I never believed in reincarnation until recently. I was raised a Christian and in Christianity there is no such thing as reincarnation. But I've had a lot of things happen in my life that only reincarnation can explain.

When I was a kid I had a fascination with lighthouses. I loved to draw them and I always drew two different ones – one that was cylindrical and one that had more of a flat top. Being landlocked in the Midwest, I had never seen one; I just knew what they were, and that I loved them.

When I was 33 I got engaged a woman who had grown up in Maine and I had the opportunity to visit there. I told her what I imagined Maine would be like and I nailed everything perfectly. She asked me, “Are you sure you’ve never been here before?”

About a month before we took the trip, her mother sent us a postcard of the Portland Headlight. To my shock, it was the same as the cylindrical one that I drew when I was young. I chalked it up to coincidence.  We flew out there and the second I set foot on the ground a feeling came over me that I can only describe as “finally.” I felt like I was home.

My fiancÚ’s parents, knowing I had always wanted to see a lighthouse, took us straight to the Portland Headlight in Cape Elizabeth, ME. It felt surreal, but completely familiar; it was the cylindrical one from my childhood. I walked up to it, touched it and my mind flashed to a man standing in front of the other lighthouse, the flat top one I also drew growing up. Again, I chalked it up to my imagination.

We then went to the Spring Light in Portland, ME and took a tour of the inside. It all looked familiar. I felt I had been there before. In fact, I even knew where the lavatory used to be. I still didn’t consider reincarnation as a legitimate explanation.

Another odd thing happened while I was on a boat with neighbors who were hosting us. They offered to teach me how to drive it, but when I got behind the wheel, I drove it “like a pro” as their friends said. I had never been on a boat before, and they gave me no instruction, but it was like second nature. Also, I seemingly knew my way around a town which I had never seen before. They came up with the ongoing joke that I “must have been a lighthouse keeper in a previous life.” I, of course, laughed it off.

While researching the Portland Headlight recently, I found a picture of that flat topped lighthouse. They are actually both the Portland Headlight. The cylindrical form was remodeled to its current flat top look in the 1800’s. So I no longer think it was my imagination when I touched it.
