Reincarnation is the concept that we evolve spiritually through living multiple lives on this earth. It is a common belief in many cultures and spiritual systems. Past Life Regression is a way to get access to knowledge of past life experiences through hypnotic trance. I was drawn into the study of reincarnation and Past Life Regression from the desire to help people reduce their suffering and confusion. Reincarnation explains a lot of why we are the way we are; why we love certain people immediately and deeply, while sometimes disliking others intensely; and why we have strong preferences for, and intuitive understandings of, things like forms of music, times in history, geographical places, and practices of spirituality.
Trance is a natural state of consciousness where we can become deeply relaxed and focused, and thereby open to intuition and understandings that we usually aren't aware of in our day-to-day consciousness. You know the times you zone out looking at nothing in particular and your eyes stop darting about, or you drive somewhere familiar, and you are surprised when you get there so quickly? Those are both natural trance states. We are all wired to have such experiences. It is fair to say we all fall into brief trance states many times daily. All trancework does is seek out trance states and deepen them.
Just like when you are driving or zoning out while looking out the window, when in trance you are still aware of yourself and your surroundings. When in a trance state while driving, if a cat runs out in front of your car, you will slam on the brakes. You come out of the trance that quickly when the outside world makes itself known. The same is true of hypnotic trance. You continue to be aware of yourself and where you are, as you focus inward and see or experience other lifetimes. And you are capable of stopping the trance merely by choosing to do so.
Sometimes the experience of accessing past lifetimes is similar to a movie with lots of visual details. Other times, it is an intuitive conceptual process with only a little visual information. Occasionally, it is a series of feelings that expand out into a story that explains the feelings. The type of experience is dependent on your inherent style of processing information. It is my task to determine how you process information to help you have a productive therapeutic past life experience.
Many people worry that hypnotic trance will make them do something they don't want to do, as in old style stage hypnosis. That is not going to happen. The kind of trance I work with is a light to medium trance that leaves you very much aware of yourself, your values, your personality, and your behavior. Thus, you remain in control of your decision making process.
Some people worry that Past Life Regression might create a false memory. That is understandable. When working with you in a trance state, my task is not to lead or direct the story. I will merely ask you what is happening at any given moment. You are the one exploring your soul's history. I am just a servant of the process that is active within you. It has been my experience that even if a past life story seems far fetched, it is always an expression of an essential part of the person in the trance. In that way, I believe it is irrelevant whether a past life memory is totally accurate, or if it is a powerful metaphor expressing an important part of you. Either way you get clarity and relief about essential parts of yourself. And the source of the information comes from within you. Part of Past Life Regression is learning to hear and trust the insights and knowlege we carry all the time in the subconsious mind.
It is important to understand that Past Life Regression is a spiritual exploration and therefore cannot be submitted to a health insurance company for reimbursement. It is not psychotherapy. It is not focused on diagnosing and treating symptoms. Yes, problems like fears, health problems, insomnia, low self-esteem, anger issues, and much more can be relieved, but that is not the sole purpose of Past Life Regression. It is a spiritual exploration of the many lives that have formed and motivated a good part of the life you are living today.
Many people have a sense they have lived lives before that were not pleasant. Some of them fear being flooded with strong feelings when doing a Past Life Regression. If find yourself recalling a difficult past life with intense suffering, I will help you observe it without feeling pain.
Some people ask me if they experience a past life, does that mean that their spiritual belief systems, like Christianity, Judaism,or Islam are false beliefs. I don't believe they are. My experience is that our past lives reinforce the deep spiritual truths held in all the faith systems in the world. To me, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Lao Tzu and many others have been powerful spiritual teachers who have given us divine sources of wisdom and love. I honor them all. I cannot speak for the theology of Christianity or other faiths in regards to Past Life Regression. I am just trying to help people heal their wounds and live in peace with themselves and others. If you feel too threatened to engage in Past Life Regression because of a spiritual belief system, please don't try it. I would not want you to confuse your journey with God. But, if you are open to the idea that you have lived before and that something in your life today is affected by some of those past lives, then Past Life Regression may be very helpful for you.
Finally, people receiving Past Life Regression typically feel deeply calmed by realizing they do not cease to exist when they die, and their soul and consciousness continue in different forms. And they learn they will have more chances to live and grow and enjoy this wonderful world with its unspeakable beauty and love.
If you are interested in doing Past Life Regression, I would be honored to accompany you on a powerful journey of healing and hope.
