About This Quiz

No one's really sure how many past lives we've had, and it might vary from person to person. We're certain that everyone has had enough of them to have died in a heroic way at least once, though. After you examine your relationship with the past and your moral character with these questions, we'll be able to tell you how things went down way back when you weren't the you that you know now! 

Many of the traits you carry have roots in a previous life. In fact, many believe that phobias, fears and anxieties are deeply connected to traumas we may have experienced during another lifetime. Throughout this quiz, you'll reveal the connections you feel to certain parts of history and the things that could have carried over into your current life. Each one of your answers will create a portrait of the person you used to be — and the heroic way you moved on to the next realm. 

Move beyond your current standing, and delve into the person that you used to be. Then, you'll finally know how you ended up where you are now! You also be proud of yourself for making such a sacrifice. Will you be confused by the way you died back then, or will your whole life suddenly make sense? Travel back to the origins of your future and find out!
