Some do because they have died, and have experienced something. 
I have myself.

Well I do remember another life, not a great and important one, I
remember being on an estate, I was roman lady, on a balcony, looking out
over fields animals and workers. It was a lovely day, 
I was very old, and thinking how lucky I was that the horror that had
happened in the Empire had not touched myself my husband or my family,
they were all fine and healthy. 
I felt so blessed because of that, as if we had lived a charmed life, 
I know the person I was had bad things happen, and good things, but
above all she had loved her life, and her family. And was at that moment
celebrating that fact. 

I remember that when I first experience it, I thought I was going quite
mad, but it happened again several times, when I was young, and less as
I got older, I think the times when I become that woman for a better
word, are the times when her and my lives are close together. 

I have a few other odd memory's but that one was always so strong that I
have never doubted the fact that I lived before. 
>blessed beast!
