Past Life Therapy – What to expect from session
Past Life Regression Therapy
When considering a physical, emotional or spiritual healing modality, it’s 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 a basic overview of Past Life Therapy.
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. We believe that the numbers of previous life experiences that we have had are countless. Furthermore, our 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.
Therapist’s Point of View
While Past Life Therapists view reincarnation as a spiritual reality, this view is of secondary importance in a Past Life Regression. Primarily, the importance is the material that surfaces from the unconscious mind that is acting on the inner and outer life of the client. If, for instance, a client has discovers that she was Jesus in a past life, the work around that manifestation is on the Christ within and the healing of that aspect of the self. So, if a client has an “unlikely” past life experience, it is necessary to treat that as absolutely real in order to get the full benefits of the regression. The reason for this is simple. Whether you were Christ, or whether you deeply identify with that figure, your unconscious mind has brought this aspect of you to your attention. Perhaps the client who regresses to a Christ life needs to bring that energy into his life. It is possible that the client thinks about herself as “too small”, by bringing up the possibility that she may have been Christ in a past life may be a way to get the client to think about herself in a larger capacity. Finally, it may be possible that this person was Christ. In getting the most out of the regression, do not judge your experience, just go with it and see what is uncovered about yourself.
Why do a Past Life Regression?
In our 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”.
We 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. We 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 We have found that this modality is especially effective in these cases.
There is also remarkable evidence both in our practice and the literature that chronic somatic illnesses 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.
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, We never know what that client is going to see or why soul has brought them to us 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 soul never disappoints or limits us. You will experience what soul wants you to experience.
Our 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.
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.
