First and foremost, I want to parrot what I heard a few weeks ago at a talk about past lives: whether you believe in them or not, past lives do exist. For me, personally, there is too much evidence to support their existence, to deny them.
Just a bit about why a person might want to experience a past life through hypnotic regression. In looking at a past life, we can often see important life lessons that we tried to learn, and may not have understood or learned. We can look at regrets that we had during a lifetime, and change our ways so we don’t have the same regrets in this lifetime. Or with the wisdom of understanding what was going on during that lifetime, we can forgive ourselves. My focus on visiting past lives, is about healing and growing.
Briefly, using hypnosis is a wonderful way to reach past lives and a wonderful way to contact your subconscious. When you are in hypnosis, you can not and will not do anything that you do not want to do. You are in full control. The hypnotist (or hypnotherapist- same thing) is merely guiding you, helping you reach that state of deep relaxation, and helping you get to where you are trying to go. They ask questions to help you uncover and discover. But a good hypnotist NEVER asks leading questions.
Yesterday, I experienced my first past life regression. I was deeply relaxed and remembered everything that happened. (I recommend recording these sessions so you can listen to them again.) Going in to the session, I had 2 lifetimes in particular that I was hoping to see. One was a lifetime with a woman I know, and the other was a lifetime with a man I know. The hypnotist I worked with had me imagine a corridor with several doors on each side. She told me to walk down the hall until I felt drawn to a door. Once I found the door, she had me stop at it. At the count of 3 I was on the other side of the door, at a previous life.
Once I was there, I was asked what I saw. Immediately, I saw green grass, trees, blue sky with white puffy clouds. A classic beautiful day. I could tell that I was a young girl, about age 7. I was playing and frolicking around, having fun. When I was asked if my girlfriend was there, I immediately knew that she was my sister. I thought that she was also my age, so we were twins. We were close and loved to play together. It was great. But then, a scary dark monster took my sister away from me. I don’t know what the “monster” actually was, but I was devastated by the loss of my sister. I was so sad and lonely. Then the hypnotist told me to go to the end of my life and see myself. I was an old, very lonely woman. I had no one with me. No husband or kids, or family of any kind. There were no friends with me. I was completely alone. After passing through my death experience, I had a sudden realization.
Before I reveal the realization, I have to let you know that about 2 1/2 years ago, when I was working with a hypnotherapist, I discovered that one of my life lessons for me to learn is that we are never alone in this world. Back to yesterday. As I passed through death and into the afterlife, that same life lesson jumped into my head. We are never alone. Even when there is no one physically present with us, we always have our angels, spirit guides, ascended masters (like Jesus, Buddha, and Saint Germain), friends and family that have passed before us, and God. We are NEVER alone.
In that moment, I realized that during that lifetime, things were set up for me to potentially learn that lesson. But for whatever reason, I never got it. Thinking that we are alone can leave a person in horrible despair, feeling like they are in the pits of hell. Fortunately, I have learned it now, and will never fall into such despair. At least not for more than a minute or two, before I remember the truth. This is how past life regression works, and why a person might want to experience it. More to come!
