People from all walks of life are becoming increasingly keen to learn from a past life and be free of the emotional or spiritual debris it may have left them with. Past life regression is, in fact, the service I’m asked to provide more often than any other at the moment.
I’m not at all surprised by this as not only is it a fascinating and enjoyable experience, but it is also a powerful tool for dealing with a wide range of conditions such as phobias and anxieties.
Furthermore, it can provide immensely useful insight into our spiritual development, relationships and our sense of purpose. We may discover a “soul family”, people we have chosen to share, to varying degrees, several lifetimes with. We may even rediscover gifts, skills and talents that we had in a previous life but had forgotten about, or not had another opportunity to discover in this one. In fact, the list of benefits is not only long, it is always growing. On many occasions now I’ve seen people gain from the experience in ways I’d never imagined.
How does past life regression work?
Although awareness of this powerful technique has developed greatly in recent years, many people still ask me how it works. What is a past life regression like and what can they expect?
To begin with, let me explain the elements of the method currently used. It is, essentially, achieved by a form of hypnosis. The state we induce is not a deep trance. That is not necessary and actually would not be helpful. The ideal altered state for regression is somewhere between a very deep level of relaxation and a light trance. Consciousness is not lost, neither is the ability to react to stimuli in your surroundings. In short, there is no loss of control or handing over of control.
What does a regression feel like?
The state of consciousness that is entered has been likened to a kind of all-embracing, deeply immersive daydream state. Others have described it as being like a “dual consciousness”. As I’ve described above, you do not lose consciousness of your current existence, but rather enter simultaneously into a dream-like state in which you experience the past life.
The client is asked to focus only on their breathing and the voice of the practitioner. As they do so, the practitioner takes the client back to a previous incarnation, which, incidentally, has already been chosen from many by their unconscious mind. This part of the mind is immensely powerful and it is this power of the unconscious that enables us to exist outside of the construct of linear time, making past life regression possible.
Once this is achieved, some simple questions are asked. These are carefully designed not to be leading, so as to avoid distorting the experience but to establish communication, deepen immersion in the past life and increase awareness of its detail. This not only greatly enriches the journey but retrieves valuable information that may be very helpful in dealing with a range of issues as well as being fascinating in itself.
From the answers to these questions, notes are taken, in the form of keywords and phrases. These may serve to trigger memories of the experience later on. To this end, the session may also be recorded. That said, people generally report that their memories of the experience are vivid and stay with them.
During the regression, The client may be moved to different times within the lifetime being explored. This is done by asking to speak to the client at different ages. This is an incredibly useful addition to the technique as it not only allows us to explore the full length of the life but also aids with navigation through, and sometimes around, various events therein. For example, if the regression being undertaken is motivated by curiosity rather than the aim of therapeutic effect, should the client begin to experience any trauma they can simply be moved to another age. Thus avoiding any discomfort which, if the objective is not therapeutic gain, would serve no purpose.
As a therapy, however, past life regression can be very powerful. I have seen people released from overwhelming anxieties and phobias simply as a result of the realisation of their original cause in a previous life, without any additional therapy being necessary.
Others have let go of limiting beliefs or disrupted negative behavioural patterns, allowing them to form better and healthier relationships, or improve existing ones. Yet more have discovered that souls they have known in past lives share their lives with them now too. Thus strengthening bonds and deepening understanding with loved ones. The gains to be made seem almost limitless, or at least are as many as there are people making the journey into past life regression.
What are the benefits?
Whether motivated by that wonderful human quality of curiosity or a therapeutic reason, certain benefits are universally granted. The great purpose of the journey of our soul through all its incarnations is that of learning. Through past life regression that learning can be fully internalised and integrated. Bringing a wisdom greater than could be achieved in the years of one life.
A sense of orientation and purpose may also be gained. Anything that makes our understanding of ourselves more whole and inclusive, not just in space but in time, is a great aid to development, and past life regression brings this deeper self-knowledge.
The result is that as well as helping to overcome obstacles, past life regression can greatly accelerate spiritual development and personal evolution.
At the end of the session, the client is brought gently back to the present time and back into the room. The experience is then discussed and any questions answered to help process the information gained so that it may be put to the best use in the here and now. This is a wonderful tool, both therapeutically and as a vital aid to self awareness, development and personal evolution.
