What is Past Life Regression ?
Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions. Past life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting.
Past life regression is mentioned in the Upanishads of ancient India,but is discussed in greater detail in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Patanjali discussed the soul being burdened with an accumulation of impressions that were part of the karma from previous lives. Patanjali called the process of past life regression, prati-prasav (literally "reverse birthing"), and involved addressing current problems through memories of past lives. Prati-prasav is used today as a practice in some types of yoga. In the religious mythology of China, souls are prevented from remembering their past lives by the deity Meng Po, also known as the "Lady of Forgetfullness", who gives them a bittersweet drink that erases all memories before they climb the wheel of reincarnation.
Past Life Regression Benefits
Here are some examples of the general benefits people describe when they have a meaningful Past Life Regression, which you may experience too when you unlock the secrets of your own Past Lives:
- Freedom to create more love, happiness and fulfillment in your day to day lives as you remember your true value as a unique individual.
- Freedom to experience better health and resolution of old issues, as you feel more confident, more relaxed and more at peace with yourself.
- Ability to create more wealth, money and financial security as you allow yourself to have and keep more of what you want or desire.
- A greater sense of "control" over your life, your body and your destiny, as you finally begin to remember that YOU create your own reality absolutely and so much more, of course, depending upon who you are, where you are at and what you really want
As a hypnotherapist these are few things that I have seen changing in people and their life. The point here is not that whether someone actually visits past life or it is just an imagination. The very fact that this journey is from that part of our brain which is about 90% of our total brain and theoretically 6000 times more powerful than our everyday brain. Hence the client almost always has a very profound experience.
Commonly Asked Past Life Questions
- What does a Past Life Regression feel like?
This tends to vary from person to person, but is usually quite a relaxing experience. Sometimes it can feel rather like a daydream, whilst other times it can seem as if you are really there but still know where you are physically right now, at the same time
- Are you asleep, awake or what?
If you think of what it feels like when you wake up gently after a good nights sleep, then the moment when you know you are awake but haven't yet opened your eyes is probably the best way to imagine the hypnotic state required for Past life Regression. You are neither fully awake nor fast asleep but drifting somewhere in between
- How does Past-Life-Regression help me to overcome the problems being faced by me at present?
We are the sum total of all the experiences of all our past lives. The effects of your past actions will be felt by you in your present. Almost all of the problems being faced now (health problems, psychosomatic diseases, relationship issues, recurring negative patterns in life situations, lack of clarity about the purpose of your life, stagnation in spiritual growth etc.) have their root causes in past lives. Past-Life-Regression works on the principle of cause and effect and helps removes the effects by addressing the root causes. By going to a root cause and understanding how it has affected the present, profound natural healing takes place automatically. Past-Life-Regression works simultaneously on Body, Mind, Intellect, and Spirit and heals at all levels.
- If the person regressed sees something traumatic or unpleasant; will it not have a negative impact?
There is an old saying - "To relive is to relieve". Once a traumatic or unpleasant situation is relived during the regression, it results in greater understanding at deeper levels of the psyche. In fact, it is trauma that is buried deep inside our subconscious that is the cause of many unexplainable problems faced in this lifetime. Therefore, once the buried trauma is brought to the conscious awareness through regression, the problems start mitigating automatically and naturally.We also can command the journey to be of an observer only and not the sufferer
- Is it possible that a person undergoing Past-Life-Regression gets stuck in the trance state and cannot come back to normal waking consciousness?
A person undergoing Past-Life-Regression always comes back to normal waking consciousness however deep the trance is. This is in much the same way as a person having a dream always wakes up! Past-Life-Regression is an altered state of consciousness similar to a dream state wherein hitherto inaccessible memories are accessed.
- If we really had past-lives, would we not remember them automatically?
In reality there are many an occasion when we 'remember' our past lives. At times, these remembrances occur spontaneously. On many other occasions, certain external events or stimulus can act as a trigger and the memory of our past life/lives surfaces. This could happen for instance:
a)When you meet someone for the first time but you get the uncanny feeling that you know that person extremely well.
b)While visiting a foreign country for the first time and knowing where a building or road is.
c) When you are in a situation and get a feeling that you have been in exactly the same situation in the past though you have no evidence of such a situation in this lifetime.
d)When you meet a person for the first time and have an immediate feeling of lack of trust for the person.
e)When you meet a person for the first time and you get the feeling of immense love for and emotional attachment to that person (this is commonly known as love at first sight).
f)When as child you used to have (you may still have them) memories of having lived in a different place in a different family and in different life circumstances. The narration of such experiences usually fell on deaf ears and you were gradually conditioned to believe that those past-life experiences and memories of those past-life experiences were not valid.
There are many other ways in which situations in this lifetime trigger our past-life memories. Most of us, however, are conditioned to ignore those subtle intuitive messages.
- If I undergo a Past-Life-regression Session and experience one or more past-lives, will I be able to remember the experience after the session is over?
Yes. However, the clarity with which you remember may vary from person to person and session to session. The experience becomes a part of you and sometimes, more memories are triggered after the session resulting in spontaneous recall of past lives.
- How many sessions do I need to take?
We recommend three sessions for adequate level of clarity to be achieved. However, this is not a hard and fast rule and the actual number of sessions required varies based on the complexity of the issues to be resolved. We normally review the situation after the first session. If the response is good, then we go ahead with the second and third sessions on consecutive days (only one session can be given per day). If not, a gap of at least one month is given after which sessions can be taken again. During this period, you will be required to practice meditation, which helps to open you up and clear the blocks that might be preventing you from experiencing your past lives.
- Is there any age limit for a person to undergo Past-Life-Regression?
Yes it is preferable for the child to be above 14 years of age so that the person is able to hear the therapist clearly, follow instructions and explain what you are experiencing.
- I do not have any specific problem. However, I am curious to know my past-lives. Is it still all right to undergo Past-Life-Regression?
Curiosity is as good a reason any other! However, in our experience, we have observed that many people who come to us thinking initially that have no issues actually realize that they do have significant issues to be resolved. Past-Life-Regression helps to resolve such issues and gain clarity about the purpose of your life.
