 Past Life Regression

What is Past Life Regression?


Past life regression therapy, (also known as “past life therapy,” or “regression therapy”), is based upon the premise that we are eternal beings who carry forward the experiences and lessons learned from one human lifetime to another.  As eternal souls, we experience physical life on Earth in a series of human bodies with their associated personalities. Each life and personality is unique, but at the same time is connected with and adds to the cumulative experience of our higher selves (our soul, if you will.) On a soul level, we choose the parameters of each life as a means of broadening our experience and challenging ourselves with new challenges and opportunities for learning and growth.  Of course, some people believe we only live one human lifetime, or are not sure one way or another.  This does not actually prevent them from gaining benefit from past life regression.    In this case, the stories elicited by this therapeutic approach serve as marvelous symbolic metaphors for the issues and situations being faced in the present time.  Whether uncovering “” past lives or not,real the approach has helped many people resolve issues and get past stuck points that were resistant to other approaches.  In addition, it’s a fascinating way to experience other aspects of your self and personality.

How intense is the experience?

Regression can be a very vivid and realistic experience involving two or more of your senses (for example, vision, hearing, and physical sensations). At other times, regression can be more subtle, involving relatively vague images and feelings. Usually, you can expect to access enough information to allow for an interesting and useful experience.

Will I re-live or recall a past life on my first try?

Many people do enjoy a vivid experience the first time. Others will typically get some impressions -- some images, thoughts or feelings -- which can lead to a fuller past-life experience in a later session. We try very hard to protect you from experiencing unpleasantness and keep you as a third party when things come up that may not be pleasant to experience.

What is a typical regression session like?

Most regression sessions include just two people:  the client (or "Querant") and therapist (or "facilitator"). Typically, a session is scheduled in advance, to last 1-2 hours. The session begins with discussion, which is followed by regression. During these individual sessions, the Querant and facilitator talk frequently about what is happening, so that guidance can be tailored to the specific person and what he or she is experiencing at the moment. These events are often highly emotional, so the facilitator ideally will be a well-trained psychotherapist who can help maximize the healing potential of these experiences. Following the regression, some time is usually set aside to "process" the experience, again to maximize its potential benefits.

During a past-life regression, will I experience only the actual events of a past life?

These regressions can include any combination of memory, imagination, and psychic experience. The "memory" component can blend accurate recall of a specific past life with other images -- for example, personal present-lifetime memories, as well as memories of scenes from movies.

"Pure" recollection of past lives is not necessary for healing and personal growth. Recent research reveals that even present-lifetime memories are, to various degrees, frequently mixed up with each other and distorted by emotions and attitudes. Discovering the essence of the story which surfaces during a regression, and at least a few important details which help bring the story into focus, is most valuable. However, it is good to know that a past life regression can bring you to a point of releasing things that tend to be a cycle of events and allow you to release that cycle and move on into growth.


Is it possible to experience the between-life state, between leaving one lifetime and being born into another?


Yes. This is a frequent occurrence in private regression sessions,and can be an extremely useful source of self-knowledge, inspiration and healing.
