okay this might sound weird but i have strong emotional connections to the past and i don't know why. for instance, i feel most strongly about the early to mid 1800s. everytime i see or read anything related to this particular era i feel nostalgic. weird i know. i love everything about this era. the clothes, the housing, the still undiscovered landscape, etc. i also feel nostalgic with the mid to late 1700s. but i cannot stand anything after 1910 and i especially hate the 50s, 60s and 70s. samething with those eras with the lifestyles, clothing, housing. is this normal and does anybody else get connections to the past like this?

I primarily feel attached to the 1960s (England), 1910s (America), 1800-10s (France), and 1770s (France). I feel attached to the Elizabethan period (England), high renaissance (Italy), and ancient Greece as well, but to a slightly lesser extent. It probably sounds ridiculous, all those years. A lot of my interests and preferences reflect those particular years.
The 1960s gives me a sense of interest and of youthful belonging.
The 1910s gives me a bittersweet feeling.
I love the 1800-10s, and the 1770s. They feel very "me". If you knew me, you'd understand.
^^^ I love furniture, fashion, music, and lifestyle from all of the above. I enjoy the art to an extent. I don't like much of the art from the 60s.
I doubt my interests/attachments mean anything, though.

Are anyones periods of interest linked to nations?

I think that's pretty common.  Almost everyone I speak to feels some sort of draw to another era.  Why?  Who knows, wishful thinking, past life memories, could be almost anything or different reasons depending on the person.

I feel a nostaligic connection to Vincent Van Gogh's painting, as if what he painted i've seen before. I love the feeling.

I think it's pretty common and not paranormal at all... It's a matter of taste I suppose.  I can feel "connected" to almost every era, if I think enough about it. On the other hand, I was never too fascinated by times and places... But yeah...it's nice to think about it.

There are a few eras attached to different places I feel attached to, or nostalgic over.  I feel in some of those cases it's a past life thing.  In others, just because I thought that time must have been pretty cool.  I wouldn't necessarily say it MEANS it's a past life thing.  Could simply be what Dayne said.

Skepticism is good, but when you reach a certain level where
you're grasping at straws and making little sense... it's not
called skepticism.  It's called ignorance.

I suppose it could be caused by past lives, but for me its likely that these are just eras I would especially enjoy. You never know, though.

Well, as with everything, you come to a point where it's beyond normal, your fascination or even knowledge of the time/place.  Simply enjoying learning/reading/fantacizing about a time and place is fairly normal I'd assume.  When it gets to where you're recalling actual events that you've not read about in very vivid detail, or can list dresses in your closet from that time, it starts to become a bit strange. laugh.gif

i feel really at home in the late 1960s,i mean this started roughly when i was age six till now (39)  when i see or even inside houses or buildings ,im there back in time,needless to say that i listen to and dress in 60s gear,i love it -it keeps me sane,especialy nowadays when it seems that hardly no one has any real respect for each other,or even themselves.ive often wondered if ive been reborn?  here lies the dilema...if i could go back would i want to??people often tell me that britain in the 60s was pretty awful(well for most part of the country) and that the 'swinging' london scene was just a load of hyped up commercial  bull...hence the backlash and introduction of the skinhead movement.I think that i would go back,if only to get clothes and records....ohhhhh now that would be heaven  original.gif

I would say "my times" are... Ancient greece, The tudor period and the 1920/30's.
