Well I dont know who I was as I havent gone through the 'Past Life Regression' process, but I know couple of people who went through it. Infact I had got an opportunity to do it once long back as some Regressionist was in town, but I got scared the last minute and decided not to go for it as I dint know what to expect. But the people who have done it said its an amazing experience. Maybe I would like to try that in future
You dont become someone random, its definitely based on you past life, your past karma (or deeds) and your past desires. Not even one thing in your life is random or a co-incidence. Even the smallest thing in your life, smallest incident that happens to you, even the people you meet in this life definitely has a strong reason behind it. You dont simply meet someone just as a coincidence and no incident in your life is a co-incidence. Even the place you are born, the parents you are born to, the opportunities you get in life, your likes, dislikes, everything is based on your agenda for which you have taken this birth.
Your physical body and mind may not be aware of all these things, and as far as you are concerned, you are just living this life and doing things you want. But your soul is totally aware of everything, actually everything was predetermined even before you took this birth. Your soul has the complete database of all your past lives, what you have done, what all you suffered, etc. So the process of Past Life Regression actually takes you to your soul level where all the information is stored, and from there you retrieve what all happened in your past lives, who you were there, etc.
