Let’s explore what Past Life Regression Hypnosis (PLR) is and how it can be an extremely powerful
therapeutic tool and help you on a journey of personal growth.
There are many conflicting views on whether this sort of experience is genuinely the result of recall from a past life. It could be a fantasy, or perhaps information subconsciously received during this lifetime. But whether you believe in the existence of past lives or not, it can be the catalyst for potent healing.
Accredited Past Life Regression practitioners offer therapeutic Past Life Regression, and they use this modality to guide you to when you first encountered the root cause of a problem that you are currently experiencing or to have a better understanding of some things in your current life.
You do not need to believe in past life experiences (even though it helps of course) but need to come to a session with an open mind as this type of therapy can be an extremely powerful therapeutic tool and help you on a journey of personal growth.
So now let's go a bit more in details and see what Past Life Regression hypnosis is and how powerful of a tool it is when used in the right circumstances ad of course used the right way with appropriate therapeutic techniques.
What is Past Life Regression hypnosis (PLR)?
Past Life Regression is a technique using hypnosis and it is a gentle form of hypnotherapy which takes an individual back through time to previous lives experiences by accessing memories that are normally hidden in their subconscious mind. Life today is so busy and so ‘noisy’ that these experiences are usually concealed beneath the noise of everyday thoughts. A PLR hypnosis session guides you out of the noise and into a deeply quiet and peaceful state where it’s far easier to locate the recalls and experiences held in your subconscious mind.
Based on the theory that your reactions and the way you respond to problems are based in the past, Past Life Regression is a holistic therapy that works with a person as a whole - not only the body and mind, but your emotions and spirit too.
While conventional psychotherapy or ‘talk therapies’ can be very helpful for some people, they typically focus on the present life. But in some cases, particularly if you are dealing with an issue that seems not to have a direct cause, you may be unable to uncover the ‘source’ of the problem. In contrast, Past Life Regression hypnosis allows the client to unlock emotions and experiences stored deep within their subconscious.
Past Life Regression hypnosis helps you explore potential past lives, and this process can help you to uncover personal stories that help to explain who you are now and some of your behaviours. It can help discover a root cause of an issue from a previous life, which is affecting you in your current life.
We cannot suggest that the material arising from Past Life Regression or Past Life Recollection are actual memories of events that have taken place or that they are factual events. The information that comes to light is considered a story, or insights, or material or a metaphor that arises from the subconscious to assist you to resolve internal conflict.
Your subconscious mind is so powerful that it will bring relevant material to help you in your current life. Accredited practitioners are not here to validate your experience but are rather here to help you get full benefit from the experience, to unravel the meaning and to help you move on.
Past Life Regression, as well as other types of hypnotherapies, is an active therapy, whereby the client fully participates in the process.
It is often claimed to be a full sensory experience - clients will not only visualise situations, but they may be able to hear sounds as if they were in the room, as well as recalling specific smells.
It’s also important to mention that there are two ways of experiencing Past Life Regression and no one choice is better than the other. It will depend on your creative mind and on which way you recall material from your subconscious mind:
- Witnessing: feels like remembering with being fully immersed in the recall, from the perspective of an observer, a spectator
- Experiencing: feels like being there and seeing it from the first-person perspective
And sometimes clients might experience it both ways, for example, moving from the spectator perspective to the first-person perspective.
Now let’s see what this type of hypnotherapy is used for.
Some people hope to try Past Life Regression simply out of curiosity, to see who they were in the past. But for most, it’s a path for personal growth and healing. To enable you to get the most out of your session, it is helpful to have a specific ‘intention’. Accredited practitioners use Past Life Regression to guide you to when you first encountered the root cause of a problem that you are currently experiencing or to have a better understanding of some things in your current life. For example, a Past Life Regression hypnosis session can help you:
• Understand why you feel a deep connection with certain places
• Identify physical ailments you have, which may be remnants of past life experiences
• Explore unresolved emotions which have carried through into this lifetime, creating fears or beliefs which you have been unable to explain
• Understand any relationship issues (including inexplicable attraction/aversion to someone)
• Understand vivid dreams or recurring nightmares
• Understand fears or phobias that have no apparent cause e.g., fear of death, fear of flying...
• Understand déjà vu experiences
• Understand why you feel tuck in life
• Understand some bad habits
• Understand some addictions you might have
• Understand some activities you feel drawn to and that you actually are very good at doing
• Acknowledge and embrace the key lessons learned through those lives
And many more...
The aim of this therapeutic process is to help you make connections that you were unable to before - perhaps finally providing you with some explanation, or a sense of internal peace.
There is no way of knowing for sure what you will experience during regression therapy, as everyone experiences it differently.
Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one in more detail, or discover repressed experiences from their current lifetime. It’s also important to mention that most of the time people experience one single past life experience.
What techniques are used?
There is a common misconception that accredited practitioners ‘perform’ hypnotherapy on a client - but this is far from true. As previously mentioned, Past Life Regression, as well as other types of hypnotherapies, is an active therapy, whereby the client fully participates in the process.
Very often, accredited practitioners use hypnosis to help clients relax and encourage them to open their minds. Other techniques such as suggestion, help to promote recall, and specific questions are designed to elicit statements and experiences of the client’s past lives.
By examining the experiences that are thought to have first signalled the problem, accredited practitioners can help connect their client’s current issues to a past life. It is hoped that by undergoing this therapeutic process, you will be able to make connections that you were unable to before - perhaps finally providing you with some explanation, or a sense of internal peace.
It would be understandable to expect that past life regression might focus on negative events and emotions, in order to explore the root cause of a problem. However, this is not necessarily the case. Accredited practitioners always try to focus on the positive aspects of regression - rather than solely focusing on traumatic memories. In this way, it is possible for Past Life Regression therapy to help you on a journey of personal growth.
What typically happens in a session?
When you receive a Past Life Regression therapy sessions, the accredited practitioner guides you into a relaxed state (hypnosis) and prompts you to recall memories from your past lives.
In a session, you will also be guided through the death of that past life and into the realm bet
ween lifetimes. It is very important to guide you to the passing on scene. Indeed, the purpose of visiting the end-of-life scene is to heal the hurt that happened in that life, and move on, cutting any ties or any contracts you might have made in potential previous lives. Passing over creates the environment to heal that life and be released from it
Therapists will vary in how they choose to conduct sessions, including how long each session will last, and the time dedicated to the regression aspect of the session itself. Usually, a full session of Past Life Regression hypnotherapy is enough, but of course, this will depend on the material that comes up in the initial session and if there is too much material, then further sessions are needed as we do not want to overload the work on the subconscious mind. A past life regression session with me usually lasts 2 hours. I will use the notes form our free discovery call that would have taken place before the past life regression hypnotherapy session is booked and will ask you more questions about your present life, and the issues you hope to resolve. I will also of course, explain how the session will be carried out and answer any questions you might have. We will work together to uncover recurring patterns that may be the cause of problems in your life.
Having discussed the areas that, you are most interested in exploring, you are in a better place to look back into your past lives - this will act as the focus or intention of the session. I will then talk you through relaxation steps to allow you to become deeply relaxed. This will allow you to access important subconscious recalls and experiences - which may be from this lifetime, or from others in the past.
Also as previously mentioned, it's important to reiterate that there is no way of knowing for sure what you will experience during a past life regression hypnotherapy session, as everyone experiences it differently.
Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one in more detail, or discover repressed experiences from their current lifetime.
The important thing to remember is that you are a unique individual with a unique history, so your experience of Past Life Regression hypnosis will be equally unique.
It is normal to feel unsure about where your experiences will have come from or wonder if you have made them up. But, as you become more comfortable with the process, these doubts will often fade.
Is this approach right for you?
Past Life Regression therapy, like many types of complementary therapy, is not for everyone.
Past Life Regression is often linked to reincarnation. There have been claims that a belief (or at least an openness) in the existence of reincarnation is the greatest predictor of reporting recall and experiences of past lives. I just want to reiterate that people do not need to believe in past life experiences (even though it helps of course) but need to come with an open mind as this type of therapy can be an extremely powerful therapeutic tool and help you on a journey of personal growth.
Past Life Regression therapy is typically thought to be best for helping people to explore a spiritual path and it is gaining recognition as a type of spiritual healing. But whether you follow a religion or not, it is thought that by experiencing yourself as a soul in other lifetimes, you gain a profound awareness that you are more than a physical body.
Please remember that we do not know what will come out of the Past Life Regression session and you need to come with an open mind. Below, I have listed a few important tips for you when arriving for your Past Life Regression session:
• It's importance to relax fully
• Avoid trying – trying is a conscious activity and will stop you from using the creative mind
• Trust your subconscious to bring to mind what they need to know and experience
• Allow information to flow into your mind without questioning it, you can do that in the post talk part of the session with the therapist
• During or after the session, you may feel like you imagined it or you made it up, this occurs because the conscious, rational part of your mind is trying to justify what happened and may be struggling to make sense of the experience. This is a very common and natural thing to happen
• Avoid analysing what is happening during the session. Analysis uses different parts of the brain and will take you out of the experience
• Instead suggest you can immerse yourself in the experience
• Just go with whatever is coming up
So, what is the next step after you have done a Past Life Regression hypnosis session? Past Life Regression hypnosis sessions often help you understand something in your current life and once you have that understanding, it is very important that you book some further therapy sessions to work on the specific issue or issues that come up after the Past Life Regression hypnosis session.
See the Past Life Regression hypnosis as the trigger that then helps you work on an issue that has been preventing you from reaching your true potential and achieving your goals. the extreme power of a Past Life Regression hypnosis session lies in the fact that it gives you clarity and a better understanding on what needs to be worked on.
Before carrying out any Past Life Regression work, it is of utmost importance to take the time and explain the whole process to the clients. It is important to discuss their needs and explain in depth what Past Life Regression hypnosis is, how it is conducted and most importantly what to expect and make sure that this type of regression therapy is suitable for them.
Hope this gives you a better understanding of what Past Life Regression hypnosis is and how much of a powerful therapeutic tool it could be when used appropriately.
