All my Viking Roads lead to Harald Sigurdsson
Sviatoslav I Igorevich
(Old East Slavic: Ст҃ославъ / Свѧтославъ Игорєвичь, Svętoslavŭ Igorevičǐ; 943 – 26 March 972), also spelled Svyatoslav, was a Grand Prince of Kiev famous for his persistent campaigns in the east and south, which precipitated the collapse of two great powers of Eastern Europe, Khazaria and the First Bulgarian Empire. He also conquered numerous East Slavic tribes, defeated the Alans and attacked the Volga Bulgars, and at times was allied with the Pechenegs and Magyars.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sviatoslav_I_of_Kiev
My Viking memory then lay quiet until in 1995 I was given the opportunity to visit Iceland on a 10 day cruise. This came completely out of the blue I was 41 years of age. Coincidentally it was exactly 1000 years to the day since I had voyaged there with Olaf Tryggvasson in 995AD! The quantum universe in action again...
In 2004 I took my daughter skiing in Norway saying jokingly, "let's see where we came from?" I relived many memories in Hemsedal - it was Lord of the Rings scenery for sure.
In 2005 I met Eva Marie Brekkesto at the devises cropcircle conference as she was talking about Norwegian and Swedish cropcircles. We quickly established that she was my past life sister from that time. I also remembered my name it had been RAVNSKJOLD - Ravenshield. In 1981 I had painted a figure called Raven Skald - it was me manifest from my subconscious just after creating the Viking memorabilia. I had run a Dungeons and Dragons club at school for two years and painted many figures but Eowyn and Raven Skald were the first. Eight weeks later I walked into TKMaxx and found a Canadian manufactured ski beanie hat with a BLACK RAVEN ON IT AND THE LETTERS RS !!!! The universe had gifted me with my symbol and initials on a hat!!! Totally amazing. Then Tom Griffith contacted me as he had been in my Black Unicorn Roleplayers club in the early 80s. He had spent 20 years trying to find me.
He turned out to be my Viking son from 1000 years ago and had been to the same places as me in both Norway and Iceland.
In 2006 I visited Eva's house in Oslo on my way to skiing and she had exactly the same picture of the place that I remembered - it was an original painting and confirmed for me that she was indeed my past life Viking sister.
In 2009 I finally perfected my Ravnskjold design after two years of trying and failing. My subconscious is finally at peace.
As if to celebrate in 2010 two ravens built a nest in an adjacent pine tree and had 3 babies. That was the icing on the cake! I have my ravens back!
Even more amazing...
My past life favourite sister from the American Civil War Hettie Kell - now Adriana DiSalvo also has memories of Eva, Tom and our life together in Norway and Iceland!

Update: Two psychics have independently confirmed that I may have been Harald Hardrada the last Viking! Certainly the memories tally with his life. I think now that after exile in Iceland we pushed on to America and I was killed by native Americans around 1014? Harald was born 1015 and died in 1066. Certainly I have a blank cut off at 1066. So three Viking lives on top of each other much like two medieval lives the same. Interesting?https://www.ravenecho.com/articles/30/72/
Ravnskjold the Loyal Jarl
I served in Olaf fleet before he was killed. I then fled to Iceland with my family, before exploring Greenland and finally the east coast of America. I met my demise in present day Boston, Massachusetts.
Olaf Trygvasson (960s – 9 September 1000) was King of Norway from 995 to 1000. He was the son of Tryggvi Olafsson, king of Viken (Vingulmark, and Rånrike), and, according to later sagas, the great-grandson of Harald Fairhair, first King of Norway.
Snorri Sturluson claims in Olaf Tryggvson's saga that Olaf was born on an islet in Fjærlandsvatnet, where his mother Astrid Eiriksdottir, daughter of Eirik Bjodaskalle, was hiding from her husband's killers, led by Harald Greycloak, the son of Eirik Bloodaxe
Balestrand (Baillie Beach) where we came from. Very close to where Olaf was born.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olaf_Tryggvason
Harald Sigurdsson, also known as Harald of Norway (Old Norse: Haraldr Sigurðarson; c. 1015 – 25 September 1066) and given the epithet Hardrada (Old Norse: harðráði, modern Norwegian: Hardråde, roughly translated as "stern counsel" or "hard ruler") in the sagas, was King of Norway (as Harald III) from 1046 to 1066. In addition, he unsuccessfully claimed both the Danish throne until 1064 and the English throne in 1066. Before becoming king, Harald had spent around fifteen years in exile as a mercenary and military commander in Kievan Rus' and of the Varangian Guard in the Byzantine Empirehttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harald_Hardrada
