All of us carry memories from previous lives in our subconscious. This energy or energetic charge keeps affecting us. Working with past lives can help clarify and heal many challenges that are affecting our current life. It enables us to heal the present whilst looking at the past.
Many people experience flashbacks during the waking state. Often this is triggered by a place we visit or by some event or maybe a person we meet for the first time. Frequently there is a feeling that we have been here before or we heard this before. This can often be a memory from a past life. Many people still question whether past lives are real but there are so many recorded experiences of people who remember past lives. Edgar Cayce is just one example; he was able to put himself in a trance and help people to diagnose their medical condition by accessing information from current and past lives by only knowing their name and address.
Often times when people are physically ill and no amount of medicine or therapy is helping, the cause can be found in a past life. Healing is often instantaneous when the root cause is found. I myself have had clients who were unable to receive appropriate help for their physical pain even though they had tried many avenues. One example is a woman who was unable to move her head freely. It turned out that in previous lives she had been strangled several times. After just a couple of sessions she was able to move her head without any pain. Another example is that of a woman who had an extreme fear of water. So much so that she was not even able to stand under a shower. She spontaneously moved into a past life where the entire crew of a trading ship drowned. This was one of the first past lives I came across personally. There was absolutely no denying what I saw and heard happening in my practice.
Of course past life memories can also occur in dreams or at times when we are deeply relaxed. One of the best ways to get into such a state is with a hypnotherapy regression session. Looking at events from our past allows us to uncover patterns that are affecting our current life. A regression session is an active process in which you can experience a trance state. For some clients this can feel like being in a movie and is experienced and felt as if you were there. Some clients hear noises, remember names, feel pain and even smell the smells of the environment. You may feel sick in that lifetime or experience a death. Some clients see some images, sometimes just a flash of an image. Others can only feel but are not able to see. One of the most common experiences though is the death experience. It is usually the part with the biggest trauma and often immediate change in this current life can be felt. Maybe one of the most profound changes is that people can let go of a fear of dying because it allows them to realize that we are eternal.
Everything you feel and sense during a session will feel real to you. All these emotions and sensations are energetic charges that are patterns in your current life. These can affect just about every area in our lives such as behaviours, beliefs, health and relationships. When these patterns are negative, they affect our life in just such a way, while if positive, they can feed our talents and drives. Remembering past life memories can bring these patterns to the surface and release them if no longer needed.
Some people are curious to experience past life regression but for most people it is a way towards healing in this lifetime. It can help us to understand our relationships and bring comfort to what we are going through. Often fears are thought of as irrational because nothing in this life gave cause to having them. I once worked with a young woman who upset her entire family because she needed to know where everybody was at every moment in time, and thus was constantly phoning and texting. In a past life she had lost every member of her family during a war.
If you have irrational fears or feelings of continuous guilt and anger, they may be due to past lives. Also if you have a strong dislike towards a specific person or place, this may be founded in a past life. Therapy can make it easier for you by helping you to heal from these feelings that are blocking your path.
