What is Past Life Regression therapy?
Definition: Past life regression therapy is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what most practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations. Past life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit f a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting. Most advocates loosely adhere to beliefs about reincarnation, though adhere to beliefs about reincarnation, though religious traditions that incorporate reincarnation generally do not include the idea of repressed memories of past lives.
The technique used during past life regression involves the subject answering a series of questions while hypnotized to reveal identity and events of alleged past lives, a method similar to that used in recovered memory therapy and one that similarly misrepresents memory as a faithful recording of revious events rather than a constructed set of recollections. The use of hypnosis and suggestive
questions makes the subject particularly likely to hold distorted or false memories. The source of the memories is more likely confabulations that combine past experiences, knowledge,
imagination and suggestion or guidance from the hypnotist than recall of a previous existence. Once created, the memories are indistinguishable from memories based on events that occurred during the subject’s life.Pastlife regression therapy practitioners use hypnosis and suggestion to promote recall in their patients, using series of questions designed to elicit statements and memories about the past life’s history and identity.Some practitioners also use bridging techniques from a client’s current life problem to bring “pastLife stories” to conscious awareness. Practitioners believe that unresolved issues from alleged past lives may be the cause of their patients’.
Why Past Life Regression?
Past Life Regression therapy is a wonderful process on the client’s healing journey! When someone has tried everything to resolve a problem, past life regression can often provide the insight and answers to true healing.
It is an especially effective process for resolving fears and phobias, relationship problems, health concerns, old patterns and compulsive behaviour. I have seen physical and emotional conditions reversed, weight lost, fears alleviated, and lifelong patterns broken, through past life regression. It is an amazing healing tool.

The Benefits Of Past Life Regression therapy
Regression can help you resolve emotional and physical issues. It is helpful for understanding and releasing phobias and traumas. Through regression, we can learn about our relationships with others, and what roles those people have played in the lifetimes that we’ve shared. Seeing the threads between us, the connections created across time, gives us an understanding about our present-day circumstances; we can start to see with more compassion, forgiveness, and love.
To the mind, the process is almost seamless. It requires only a subtle change in brain-wave activity. During a regression, we shift from a beta brain-wave state—the state characteristic of normal waking consciousness—to the alpha state, the state of relaxation. From there, and with my guidance, my clients move into either a theta or gamma state. Theta is the state of being aware but drowsy; it’s most often experienced just before falling asleep and again just before waking. Theta is the border state between conscious and unconscious. When used with intent, it is a state where profound learning, healing, and growth can take place. In the gamma state, one experiences a heightened sense of perception and consciousness, resulting in a feeling of oneness with all—bliss and an innate understanding of the nature of existence. It is in the theta and gamma states where the powerful work of regression takes place.
Indications and Contraindications for Use of Past life Regression In considering the suitability of past-life therapy for different patients, I have come to regard it as a short-term intensive therapy that is best reserved for patients who have already made considerable headway in conventional psychotherapy. It is particularly helpful for someone who feels blocked in certain areas in ongoing therapy to have a new modality to help finish fragments of unfinished stories where the psyche seems, as it were, to be stuck in a groove. Many issues of abandonment and separation, for example, even though they have resisted conventional therapies at the infantile, primal, or birth trauma level, are seen to open up dramatically as soon as scenarios of infant death and abandonment from other lives re-lived.
Often a deep-seated phobia or a sexual blockage can be released cathartically and psychosomatically when scenarios of of rape, torture, and violent death are re-lived by the secondary ego. Parental complexes reveal themselves in a different light within the power dynamics of entirely different family constellations in another age. Complexes surrounding issues of power or money take on another dimension when memories of famine, oppression, slavery, etc., come to consciousness.
Another group of subjects who respond well to past life therapy are therapists of many orientations who wish to deepen their own process and to become more able to recognize fragments of past-Life memories that may surface in their patients. Many therapists, body workers, and healers frequently observe material from their patients that seems to be connected to past lives, perhaps a function of the strong stresses that are being borne by the collective unconscious at this very difficult period of humanity’s growth. Past-life therapy can be considered a “therapist’s therapy,” since it requires openness and commitment of persons who are very advanced in their own psycho-spiritual development. Jung recognized that only the wounded heal, and the therapist needs constantly to work upon himself. Whether the person is trying to move from a stuck position or trying to deepen generally, the work is best done within the context of some broader frame of ongoing therapy or spiritual discipline. Much of the material that emerges may take many months to integrate fully, and some of it may require a Lifetime of meditation and reflection.
