Past Life Journey
Next wednesday 24th November at 7pm I have a Past Life Journey evening coming up – it’s a small taster evening for the vast potential of Past Life journey work – here’s a few words I recently wrote on the subject of regression
There are many spiritual traditions and religions that believe reincarnation is real and accept it as part of their everyday reality. For many of us the notion that our Souls return to Earth over a series of lifetimes to evolve and grow through the learnings of each life is a reality. And when we do reincarnate, we often do so with many of the same people and it is with these same people (or soul group) that we discover our greatest learnings with; in relationships with them and other resolving challenges of various kinds together or on opposite sides of the fence.
There are several other possible explanations for “past lives”. You may choose to believe that the mind creates a dissociative experience where it’s safer to deal with and gain insight to an issue, or that part of the mind accesses the Jungian collective unconscious or that these experiences are genetic memories which are somehow encoded into our DNA. All of these beliefs are valid and which one is true is to some degree irrelevant.
The fact is that past life regression therapy can be a very transformative and empowering process for anyone and we don’t necessarily have to believe in it wholesale to benefit from the experience. By using hypnosis, deep relaxation and guided imagery we can allow the mind to follow its own path into the relevant past life/experience to discover the unresolved business of the Soul. Transformative techniques are then used to bring about resolution, healing and insight at very deep levels.
The objective for past life regression may be simple curiosity and that can have tremendous value for us. However, it can be also be much more solution focused and that’s when the genius of the therapy becomes apparent. Having insights and the knowledge of how we lived before can help us overcome present obstacles, understand and overcome all sorts of phobias, fear and habits and resolve relationship issues.
This insight into your past lives can be exciting and enlightening, however it is important to see how the journey parallels into the current life and what wisdom and insight can be found and applied into the current life to bring about the positive change that is required. The fact is that past life past life regression and regression therapy are very transformative and empowering processes and by facilitating change at levels of the unconscious they can bring about the positive change required in our current lives.
Edgar Cayce the so-called Sleeping Prophet in America was sufficiently gifted to be able to give thousands of past life readings. For him it wasn’t nearly as important who individuals had once been, or even what they had been doing, as it was paramount that they focus on the present and the opportunities and challenges that faced them in this time, in this place, right now.
For me, a fundamental reason to invest time, work and belief in reincarnation and therefore regression is to enable and empower a soul to understand the consequences of previous choices and to know that each individual is ultimately responsible for shaping and creating his or her life in the present.
Over the last decade regression therapy has evolved and moved on from simply knowing what happened in the past to effectively working through the unfinished business, transforming, integrating and healing creating a positive outcome to our current lives.
