Have you ever experienced the feeling of knowing someone you’ve just met or recognising a place you’ve never been to before? Perhaps you have a connection with them in a previous life. Even people who have no belief in past lives are heard to say ‘I must have done something really bad in a previous life to keep suffering like this’. Albeit that it is not as simple as this there may be some truth in the statement – karma is not about judgement and often those who suffer the greatest are learning at ‘postgrad’ level!
Past Life Regression was probably discovered accidentally by hypnotherapists directing the client back to the first time they experienced something. We now take this step intentionally to reveal deeper seated problems, repetitive behaviours or unexplained phobias and illnesses.
Past Life Regression can be an extension of Regression Therapy or a ‘tourist trip’ to a past life. Where it used as a therapy it can alleviate problems that have been affecting your life for which there seems to be no cause or for understanding experiences that have seemed to blight your life.
It is common for people to describe pain in ways that reveal their understanding of its origin – a pain in the shoulder ‘like a knife in my back’; headaches like ‘a band being tightened around my head’. Most of us have no experience of these in this life, however, under hypnosis, if we are taken back to the origins of these experiences, our subconscious can take us to a life where these things actually happened to us. By understanding the true origins of these pains and understanding the connection with this life these pains can completely disappear.
Reincarnation is the basis of many of the worlds spiritual beliefs including Buddhism; Hinduism; Sikhism; Gnostic and Esoteric Christianity, to name but a few. I have found that more and more people, especially children, have some memory of a past life, although they are not always encouraged to trust that memory because of the wider spiritual connotations and so begin to forget the memories.
It has a beautiful logic to me and answers all the questions that I could find no other sensible solution to, including déjà-vu; karma (probably the most misunderstood); intuition; energy or spiritual healing; not forgetting ‘why are we here?’; ‘why is life unfair?’
It is not necessary for you to believe in reincarnation for Past Life Regression to work for you. Modern psychology doesn’t seem to have a lot to say about this – some say that it is a metaphor that your subconscious has constructed for you to understand your problem – whatever you believe, it can have remarkable results with a wide range of physical and emotional problems that have no clear source. Often it can be a deeply profound and life changing experience.
