The benefits of a past life regression
There are those who believe that we Incarnate over and over to grow and learn from our many lifetimes on earth. The basic principle is that we choose various challenges to face. These challenges help us to grow spiritually from the experience. There is an opportunity to learn by having the experience of being born rich as well as poor, healthy or unhealthy. For those who believe in reincarnation or others who are just curious, the benefits of a past life regression can be profound.
What is a Past Life Regression
A skilled past life regression hypnotist helps clients to remember and experience past life memories by guiding them into hypnosis. In hypnosis the unconscious mind, the part of the mind where all memories are stored, can be accessed. These memories include experiences from early childhood, memories from the womb prior to birth, past life experiences, and afterlife memories. Clients are awake and aware of their surroundings but are able to experience memories prior to birth.
Experiencing Past Lives
Everyone experiences past life memories a little bit differently. Some clients are more visual while others tend to feel the experience in a profound way. It is not uncommon for a client to start to feel cold and then find themselves in a cold weather scene. Kinesthetic clients can experience the sadness, the excitement, or the fear attached to a memory from the past. In some cases, people felt the pain of an old war wound during a past life therapy session.
Many of us had the experience of Deja vu. We find ourselves feeling very familiar, or comfortable with a place or city that we have never been to. This familiar feeling can apply to people as well. An instant connection with someone who we feel like we've known our entire lives may be someone we've incarnated with before.
Cast of Characters
Very often a client will recognize a past life family member or friend as someone they know now. Sometimes difficult relationships in our current life stem from a prior life experience where we were wronged by that person. Once we understand the source of the conflict, we can let it go and develop a healthier relationship with that same person.
It can also be very helpful to identify someone who has passed on. It may bring comfort to know that the people we care for, and who are no longer with us, can play a role in our future incarnations.
Feelings We Carry Forward
Whatever memories come forward relate directly to the client’s current life in some way. Phobias and fears can very often stem from prior life experiences. Falling off a cliff in a past life can cause a fear of heights in a current life. A skilled past life practitioner can reframe the event and help the client let go of the fear.
In some instances, the loss of a child or spouse in a past life can lead one to being very protective of that person in the current life. Once we understand where this fear of loss comes from, the need to be overprotective can be released.
Benefits of a Past Life Regression
As someone who has facilitated hundreds of past life regressions, I have witnessed the release of various fears, phobias, limiting beliefs, loneliness, insomnia, and unhealthy relationship patterns. I have also seen clients identify past life skills like artistry, music, and carpentry. These same clients found it easy to pick up those skills in their current lives. While the benefits need not be that dramatic, just the realization, or confirmation on some level, of a life beyond the one lived can be reassuring and comforting.
