Is it possible that a part of our mind, a part that we are not readily in contact with, could help unlock the secrets to our physical and emotional pain and distress? Would you be interested in a therapy that, among other things, could enable you to access this part of the mind, and allow you to uncover and understand the root causes—and potential solutions—to the emotional or physical pain you’re currently feeling? If so, past life regression therapy may just be the ideal solution. In this article we will provide a comprehensive definition of past life regression therapy, which will include a discussion regarding the primary goals of this form of treatment, an abbreviated list of some of the conditions this therapy is often used to treat, and an outline on what you can normally expect in a typical past life regression therapy session.
What Is Past Life Regression Therapy?
Perhaps the best way to define past life regression therapy is to break the term down into its individual parts. Most people will recognize the word “regression” as “an experience of going back to an earlier time.” Therefore, “past life regression” can be best defined as a process of re-experiencing a previous lifetime. Finally, when the word “therapy” is added—a word which describes a process of discovery and healing—we get a much clearer picture of how past life regression, or re-experiencing a previous lifetime, is being used by practitioners to help their clients. Simply put, past life regression therapy is a process that involves revisiting a previous lifetime in order to find clues and answers for our current physical and emotional pain—a process aimed at ultimately finding physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
Everything we experience in life, including how those experiences make us feel, is stored deep in our inner consciousness, where there are no time boundaries. What this means is that our memories of those events and feelings that we experienced in previous lives continue to reside in our consciousness and are just as accessible as our current memories.
The proponents of past life regression therapy believe that much of the pain, confusion and inner turmoil that many of us presently cope with may actually be the product of unresolved conflict from another time. Consequently, this unfinished and often painful business becomes stored in our memories and can have a direct impact on our current life. With past life regression therapy, however, it is possible to access those memories so that these unresolved conflicts and issues can finally be settled, and this solution might just be able to resolve the pain we’re currently experiencing.
What Conditions Can Past Life Regression Therapy Effectively Address?
Any condition that causes us physical, emotional or spiritual pain and conflict can benefit from past life regression therapy. According to practitioners, the treatment has proven effective in positively addressing and resolving all of the following conditions:
- Anxiety/Panic Attacks
- Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Sleep Disorders
- Chronic Pain
- Anger Management and Aggression Issues
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Relationship Difficulties
- And Many More…
Those coping with any of the above conditions suffer directly—from the physical and emotional pain these conditions cause—and indirectly, because the root cause for their condition is almost always difficult to determine. Past life regression therapy can help these people unlock the root cause of their condition, which will ultimately lead to healing.
How Is Past Life Regression Therapy Performed?
Past life regression therapy typically involves several 60-90 minute sessions between the patient/client and a qualified therapist. Initially, the sessions will involve a discussion with regard to the patient’s condition and their goals for treatment, along with an explanation from the facilitator as to what the patient can normally expect. From there, the therapy commences and will entail standard hypnotic induction through which the therapist will work to deepen the patient’s trance.
Once the patient is in a deep hypnotic state, the therapist will provide a series of suggestions, each designed to help the patient generate past life information. Many patients will have an almost immediate “vivid” experience on their very first attempt at therapy—an experience that may often involve vibrant sensory (vision, hearing, physical) sensations. Others will have to work up to these vivid occurrences gradually with each session, and will initially have a more subtle experience consisting of vague feelings and understated images.
While under hypnosis the therapist will guide the client to scan the energy in their body as a way to look for disruptions. When these disruptions are noted—disruptions that represent an unresolved past life experience—the regression therapy will proceed, focusing directly on this past life and the reasons for the disruption. Of course, the end goal of these sessions is to resolve each of these past conflicts, which will act as a gateway to healing the physical or emotional pain that was once tied to it.
Past life regression therapy sessions can be very emotional and tremendously therapeutic, and according to experienced therapists, this holds true even for those who do not necessarily believe in the idea of reincarnation. Therapists admit that it doesn’t matter whether the information recalled by the client was real or created by their imagination. It was nevertheless created from a need and a motivation to repair themselves, which in turn makes these images and information very powerful from a therapeutic standpoint.
Past life regression therapy has worked for thousands upon thousands of people who previously experienced some type of long-term physical and emotional pain. By accessing past lives and confronting the unresolved conflicts contained therein, past life regression therapy can help relieve years of emotional burdens, including the guilt, shame and self-loathing that usually accompanies them. It allows us to find the root cause for physical conditions such as chronic pain, and emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety, panic and phobias. And once that cause is finally revealed, it will provide people with all the tools necessary to begin the healing process from a position of confidence and courage, rather than from a state of confusion and fear.
