I Am Marilyn Monroe

Call me crazy, but I think I was Marilyn Monroe in a previous life.  Let me explain...

About a week or so ago me and a friend, N, were enjoying happy hour and got onto the subject of reincarnation.  N is unsure of reincarnation.  He doesn't like the idea of not being able to use the things we've learned in our life and carry them onto the next.  That's when I suggested that maybe we do, but it's all subconscious.  For example:  Maybe I was an actual movie star.  I went out to Los Angeles in search of stardom.  Maybe, subconsciously, I knew that I wouldn't be happy if I stayed out there for too long.  Maybe the movie star that I was before was incredibly successful, but also incredibly unhappy.  Maybe what I experienced in my past life I took with me into my current one.  I was in Los Angeles for 5 years, became unhappy, and I left.  Then N said he thought I could be Marilyn Monroe! I was SOLD on the idea and then I started putting some pieces together.

Ever since I was little I wanted to be a star.  After college I moved to Los Angeles.  After being there for a few years and needing a steady job, I started working at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Back in the 1950s Marilyn Monroe had her very first modeling photo shoot at the Tropicana Pool at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

When I was 11 years old my mom took this picture of me at our summer pool.

Some other things about the Roosevelt are that Marilyn lived there for 6 months in the 50's.  Her suite is still there - The Monroe Suite.  There is also a mirror that used to be in the hotel that you can see her ghost in.


There's also the television show Smash that I loved!  Too bad it got cancelled.  I have a lot of the songs downloaded to my iPod and I sing them in my car like I'm playing Marilyn myself.



I was reading my fall issue of Glamour and the very last page is this... 


There are so many signs!!!!!!


Poor Marilyn died in 1962 at the age of 36.  She was found on August 5th in her Brentwood home.  Her death is considered to be a conspiracy.  Some think she was murdered, but her doctors think it was an overdose.  Marilyn suffered from depression and was being treated for it (as am I).  Marilyn got sucked into the life of stardom.  This is where I think the knowledge of our previous life comes into play.  I was there for 5 years and that last year was my most unhappiest.  I felt lost and like a complete failure.  I knew it was time for me to head back to my family.  I don't know what Marilyn was feeling before she died, but she must have been unhappy.

Maybe reincarnation isn't real.  As a Catholic, I'm not even supposed to believe in it.  I think it's a cool concept.  I have friends from high school that didn't live to see their 18th birthday.  Was that it for them?  Does their life end there?  I also believe in heaven and I suppose the two contradict each other.  Whatever happens after we die I'm not afraid of it!  I plan on living my life to the fullest.  For Halloween this year I have decided to dress up as Marilyn Monroe.  All I need now is some handsome fellow to dress up at JFK!
