Past Life Regression Therapy

When considering a physical, emotional or spiritual healing modality, it is important to understand its purposes as well the healing effects and limitations in its ability to move you forward in your health goals. This brief article is designed to give the reader an overview of Past Life Therapy’s basic assumptions.

A Past Life Regression is not a parlor trick and has serious implications about how we live our lives. It is deep work on the unconscious template that often dictates our reactions to situations, people we choose to partner with and our physical health and habits. With this in mind, when doing a past life regression, it is important that you work with an experienced professional who can assist you with issues that may arise following your regression.

With that caveat, there are very few healing modalities that can offer the physical and emotional healing and insight that can be had through past life therapy. We are, as individuals, far more than we understand ourselves to be in this present lifetime. I believe that the numbers of previous life experiences that we have had are countless. Furthermore, my belief follows that we continue in an infinite number of future lives in order to realize who we are. As we experience, we continue to grow, change and become as we evolve into something more wonderful and wise than we can imagine. Past Life Regression is an important tool for us to understand what we (as a soul) have been becoming which assists us in moving forward on our path toward God.

Are Past Lives Real?

Most major religions have reincarnation as a basic tenant. Early Christians believed in past lives as well until the Catholic Church banned it as a heretical offense, nowhere in the Bible is reincarnation denied as a spiritual reality. Because of this, the tradition of reincarnation in the west is new and takes an approach that often leads to a more surface understanding. We want to know if we’ve been here before, who we’ve been and maybe to see if we were some famous past-life figure. Often times, the deep spiritual meaning as well as the importance and effect that on our current life situations are often overlooked.

Hindu tradition views reincarnation as a spiritual prison where we keep going around an endless circle of lives and reincarnation until we reach enlightenment. This enlightenment can be reached at any moment ending the cycle of incarnations. In Buddhism, incarnations are a way of development of the soul and the realization that there is no me/you or mine/yours. We come together in the realization that we are all one with everything. Obviously, these are simple statements for dynamic religions that have been in practice for thousands of years.

Why do a Past Life Regression?

In my practice, I have found that Past Life Regressions are particularly valuable when dealing with issues that have no “rational” cause. Many people find healing with individuals that they are in conflict with at work, in social circles and in their families. These conflicts all have the quality of “unsolvability” meaning that there is no outward cause of the conflict but rather the feeling that “there is just something about that person I don’t understand”.

I find regressions are particularly helpful in solving relationship problems with partners, parents and family members because of the tendency to continue to share life experiences with these primary people. I have also noticed that people with phobias tend to do well with Past Life Regressions.

Fear of heights, fear of flying, fear of water, etc. all seem to have roots in Past Life Traumas and I have found that this modality is especially effective in these cases.

There is also remarkable evidence both in my practice and the literature that chronic somatic illnesses and even congenital illnesses and defects can be relieved and often times cured through the use of Past Life Regressions. Our bodies are a reflection of our conscious and unconscious mind. As a result, certain traumas that occur in a previous life can manifest physical symptoms in this life.

I had a client named “Beth” who had problems with headaches and dizziness. Tests and MRI’s showed no physical cause. In her regression, she was “blindsided” with a blunt object while asleep in a teepee during a raid on her village. After the regression, her head was in pain and she was extremely dizzy for about a half an hour. When she regained her balance and her head cleared, she was able to go home. To this day, she has not suffered from her headaches.

While Past Life Regressions can have impressive curative effects on somatic illnesses, it is important for such people to continue their allopathic care and to realize that it is important to heal the body as well as the mind and spirit.

How to Approach a Past Life Regression

In approaching any “transpersonal therapy” it is important to have a specific intention. While many people initially want to “just be open” to whatever they might experience, it has been my experience that we just have so much going on that an intention offers us a context in which we can consciously understand our experience.

In approaching a regression and a new client, I never know what that client is going to see or why spirit has brought them to me in the first place. An intention allows the client a framework in which to draw conclusions and gain insights into themselves. Many people are concerned that they will limit what could be obtained, my experience is that spirit never disappoints or limits us. The intention is for us, not spirit. You will experience what spirit wants you to experience.

My advice then is to have an intention, then be open to the possibilities. “This or something better” is a prayer that is often said in the new thought community and a good approach to regression therapy.

What kind of intentions work well? Anything that is problematic is really best. Specific questions about life circumstances, relationships, phobias or illnesses will all bring good results. Make sure that you keep it within the realm of your everyday life and always about you only. This will also help you see how truly spiritual your everyday life is. If you stay with things that you consider problematic, you’ll be able to see how you’ve played out your problems in the past and what you’re trying to accomplish in this lifetime.

Will this Work for Me?

There is some debate in the hypnosis community about who is hypnotizable and who is not. My experience is that a person who is willing to suspend what they think they know and are willing to allow themselves to sink into an altered state of consciousness are good candidates. My answer is yes provided that you’re willing to allow yourself to become deeply involved in your experience.

It’s like reading a book. While you are reading, you allow yourself to get into the flow of the action, become deeply involved with the characters in the story and often times draw pictures in your mind about what the characters might look like, their setting, perhaps what they’re feeling, etc. This is a form of hypnosis and if you can look at it that way, you will be very successful. You wouldn’t say, while reading this book, that this isn’t really happening, its just words on a page and my imagination is making it up. You become involved in the action and often get your other senses involved. This is what I find is most helpful for people doing regression work.

What Results Can I Expect?

Past Life Regression is one of the most effective psychological and transpersonal tools available and often saves many years of psychotherapy, however, nothing is a panacea and rarely does just one or two sessions solve a lifetime of problems and habits. People often notice profound changes after one or two regressions, but without continued work and follow-up, these changes tend to be short lived. Rarely does one past life hold the answer to all of our problems, nor does one regression cover all the subtleties and insights of a given life. Our past lives were lived in the same way that your present life is, with growth spurts, times of stagnation, moments of sorrow as well as joy.

Dedicated and consistent effort in your healing process provides the best results. In the case of regression therapy, you will find that a series of lives around this issue. Successful lives around particular problems can be accessed to give you more resources and energy to move forward, difficult and painful lives can be brought to closure and redirected, again to give you more energy and resources to your own personal becoming.
