Past Life Therapy
What is Past Life Therapy?
Past Life Therapy is an umbrella term which covers past life regression and spiritual regression, (which is regression into the spirit realm) to explore soul memories between past lives. Most people would start with a past life regression which is a technique used to takes a person back through time to a previous life (ie. before their present lifetime) by using hypnosis. Regression can also be used to take someone back to an earlier event or age in their current life.
What to expect in a Past Life Regression
Regression is a clinical intervention and can be used if someone believes that their problems are the results of events experienced in a previous existence. Once in a past life, I will guide you through the important or significant times which you feel may have a bearing on the current problem. As always, you are in control and can come out of hypnosis whenever you wish. You will be communicating with me throughout as I guide you through the session so there is absolutely nothing to worry about!
During a past life regression, you will get a sense of knowing and memories may come back to you in the form of images, impressions sounds, smell and feelings or a combination of these. There is no one experience to fit all. Recalling a past life is not actually about having a good memory as in the ordinary sense of "remembering facts." It is about re-living or re-experiencing the times in your past life.
Why do people want to be regressed?
The reasons for wanting a past life regression range from pure curiosity to wanting an answer for an unexplained fear or phobia where the origins cannot be placed in this lifetime. While a past life may reveal a source of a phobia and promote healing, it may still be necessary to carry out additional therapy afterwards.
Some people have fragmentated past life memories which come to them in reoccurring dreams. A strange familiarity with places they have never been to before but know like the back of their hand often raises the question of past lives. Familiarities with strangers, a strong sense of knowing drives many people to question the existence of previous lifetimes. During a regression, some people may experience a number of past lives and some experiences may be accompanied by a catharsis (a strong emotional release). A past life regression can relieve unconscious conflicts.
Whatever your reasons may be I encourage you to embrace the experience and trust in yourself and the process. Allow the conscious mind to take the passenger seat while the subconscious mind, the part of the mind that has all the memories, solutions, experiences and resources to come out and take the drivers seat.
What is a Spiritual Regression?
Andy Tomlinson in his book "Healing the Eternal Soul" describes a spiritual regression as something that "enables people to experience how their own soul prepared for the next life and understand their karmic and spiritual progress." Tomlinson further explains "They can experience the multi-dimensional spiritual activities of the soul and answer at a profound level the questions, "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?"
A spiritual regression is a natural progression for some people particularly if they have had a number of past life regressions. They want to know and understand more, get a bigger picture, so to speak. A spiritual regression requires more time and preparation (than a past life regression) as a deep level of hypnosis is generally required to access the soul memories. Anyone wanting a spiritual regression is asked to think about the spiritual objective of their regression. Generally people want to know why they are here, what their purpose is and gain a deeper understanding of karma and how this plays out here on the earth's plane. Others are simply intrigued and want to know more about the souls journey in the spirit world.
