Past life regression. If these three words made you roll your eyes, you are not alone. There was once a time, not too long ago when these words made me say "yeah, right," but my experience and that of numerous clients that I have worked with has made me a believer.
Past life regression is based on the model of reincarnation, which I realize is a religious and/or metaphysical belief. As a hypnotherapist, it is not my job to prove or disprove the belief in reincarnation. My job is to assist you, the client, in exploring and discovering your own beliefs about the existence of past lives and past life experiences and then to help you use the experience to create a therapeutic movement within yourself. I don't need total and blind belief in past life regression, just merely a willing and open mind.
Through past life regression, you can resolve and eliminate conflicts from the past life and your current life. You can use what you learn in past life regression to bridge the gap between issues in a past life and issues in your current life, but this is not required for the benefits to take place.
Past life regression can be useful for:
Connecting with a past life experience.
Helping you understand why you feel a connection to certain places and people.
Exploring soul mate connections.
Identifying barriers, habits, and hangups that could be a remnant of a past life.
Understanding unresolved emotions that have created unexplainable fears or beliefs.
Acknowledging and accepting lessons learned in past lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to prepare for a session?
You will need to ensure that you are undisturbed for the duration of the session. You should also wear comfortable clothes that allow you to relax completely. I also recommend that you have a light meal and avoid caffeine, tobacco, or drug use prior to the session.
What should I expect from a session?
Past life regression sessions are longer than normal hypnotherapy sessions - normally 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I require a pre-session consultation prior to the full session. When you arrive we will discuss what you want to achieve with past life regression. We will discuss safeguards and how you prefer to experience past life events. Then, I will put you into a state of deep hypnosis and we will begin the journey to your past life. Afterward, we will discuss the session and your experience. Sessions are conducted in person or via Zoom.
Will I find out who I was?
No. Although numerous people claim to have been John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, or Cleopatra in a past life, this is highly unlikely. Remember, the idea is not to find out who you were in a past life, but to learn from the past to improve your current and future life.
Will if I experience a traumatic event from a past life?
Skilled hypnotherapists use certain safeguards to ensure you are not traumatized from the events in a past life. There are many ways of doing this, but my favorite way is through the "hidden observer." This allows you to view past events as if you were a hidden observer, watching the event unfold. This provides protection from the emotional impact of the events. We can take this one step further and the events can be viewed as if they were watching it on a television screen. You have the option of viewing the experience first-hand or as an observer.
Will I remember the regression?
Yes, you will remember every part of the journey. You won't be doing anything that you won't remember. You will be in a deeply relaxed state but will be able to have a conversation while you are in hypnosis. Deep hypnosis is required to access subconscious memories of your past life. I will be asking you questions as we go on the past life journey together.
Past life regression is nothing like stage hypnosis. You are in total control the entire time. If I give you a suggestion that is not congruent with your way of thinking, your subconscious mind will reject the suggestion. For example, if I tell you that every time you heard a phone ring, you will bark like a dog, your subconscious mind will reject this because it was so outlandish and not congruent with your way of thinking.
Will I find out how I died?
This is completely up to you, and I will only do this with your consent. Normally, I take clients to the time and place of death and the moments immediately after. While this sounds traumatic and harmful, it is not. Instead, these experiences allow my clients to better understand themselves and the events from the past that carried over into this lifetime.
What happens if I don't experience a past life?
I have never had a client who didn't experience a past life. Clients who are highly skeptical of past life regression often experience a delay or difficulty fully experiencing a past life. I try to take my clients through 2-3 past lives. This depends on how long is spent exploring a past life. Some are more emotional or more involved and require more time. I will never rush you through a past life in order to make sure we get through three lives.
