Past Life Regression
Past Life Regression or PLR, as it is often referred to, is a very relaxing and enjoyable technique for accessing previous incarnations. An offshoot of hypnotherapy, it has grown in popularity over the past 40 plus years and is now an important part of the holistic modalities.
Most of the people having a Past Life Regression are simply curious to know if they've had any previous lives and, if so, to know about who they've been, where they've lived, what their occupations were and if any of their current family or friends have shared any of their previous lives. Although those are the most common reasons people seek a Past Life Regression, some come having experienced a triggered recall (where a location or situation prompts a past life memory or feeling), others come having had a spontaneous recall (where they have experienced a kind of flashback). Regardless of the main reason for wanting a Past Life Regression all are eager to discover as much as possible about their Past Lives.
A Past Life Regression session uses gentle hypnotic induction (may also be called trance) to access the realms of past lives. Some refer to this as accessing one’s 'higher self', some refer whilst others simply refer to it as the subconscious, it amounts to the same thing; it's where all of the information from our current and previous incarnations are located. As just mentioned, people are eager to discover as much information about who they were, where they lived, what their occupation was, and it’s the role of the Regressionist to pose the necessary question to obtain as much of this information as possible so that the person can research their past lives via the internet or libraries. It is worth noting that if the information doesn’t hold relevance it isn’t recalled, so names and dates are not always forthcoming.
During a Past Life Regression session (depending on the facilitator and the duration of the session) it’s not uncommon to visit 2 or 3 Past Lives and 3 or 4 junctures within each of those lives. However, no two regressions are ever the same and one never knows where one is going to go.
Despite most people having a Past Life Regression purely out of intrigue the past lives visited are done so because they hold information that has some relevance to their current earthly existence, issues or circumstances that are affecting them. These do not have to be major issues, but the lives visited will hold information that will bring awareness, if not some degree of healing, that will benefit this current life. That said, Past Life Regression Therapy is a specialist modality and one should not expect healing from a Past Life Regression.
Once a Regression is concluded the person is gently brought back to full consciousness and allowed time for them to adjust. Occasionally a person may experience a slight headache or a feeling of light-headedness* (can occur 2 to 3 hours after their session) it’s nothing to worry about, just adjustments taking place (assuming some degree of healing/change of awareness has taken place) and usually disappears 3 to 4 hours after the session.
In general, a Past Life Regression experience is relaxing and enjoyable and people leave feeling calm, peaceful and very relaxed tinged with just a little excitement from their visit to their Past Lives.
*before embarking on a Past Life Regression it is advisable to drink sufficient natural spring water to ensure one is fully hydrated. Doing so reduces, if not prevents, the post Regression sense of light-headedness or headache.
Past Life Regression Therapy is a very effective healing modality, often only taking one session to dispose of an issue. However, as every person is different and an individual it isn’t possible to say, until the first session is concluded, whether further sessions are required, it can take 3 or more sessions to dispose of an issue, once and for all.
Past Lives hold information responsible for the creation of issues, ailments & afflictions that affect this current earthly existence and a s such require visiting to obtain the causative information. This is achieved, much like a standard Past Life Regression, by using a gentle hypnotic induction, where the person enters a state of hypnosis (deep relaxation), enabling the therapist to facilitate the journey through the Past Life realms, selected by the persons subconscious, responsible for the creation of their symptom.
The role of the therapist is not to direct, but to, simply, facilitate the journey through the relevant Past Lives, whilst recording and understanding the part those Past Life situations played, in creating the persons current life issue, to enable the disposal of the symptom and effects.
Once an event has been visited, and the therapist has understood the issues and applied the therapy, the affecting information left is from whence it came, the spirit will no longer experience the effects of that event in this or any future incarnations; it has been addressed and left at the time of inception.
A Past Life Regression Therapy experience should be comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. There is no need to experience anything traumatic, no need to relive any death experience or distressing events; there is nothing beneficial to be gained from such trauma, you've been there once and that's enough! There is no healing in trauma, only in understanding the event, the information gained and the significance of that information in the creation of a symptom or ailment, that's where the healing lies.
However, emotions may strike quickly and if they do, the therapist will negate the exposure to any such emotion; allowing it to be acknowledged, but, not endured.
