For over 40 years, I have been investigating reincarnation and karma with past-life regression and as a philosophical study. That’s a long time to keep one’s interest, but this subject never ceases to fascinate. Just when I think I fully understand, I will be working on a case and discover I’m dealing not just with reincarnation, but with an “entity attachment,” a “soul fragment” or a “parallel life” that somehow relates to the past life.
Finding new and better ways to conduct past-life regressions is also an ongoing challenge. Over the last few years, in private and group sessions, I have been using a new “contact” technique that gets impressive results. Once my client is in a relaxing altered state of consciousness, I direct them back to the cause of a problem in their lives. It can be any kind of problem, from relationship conflicts, to a lack of abundance, to a chronic health issue. My client then begins to get impressions from an earlier time in this life, or a past life. How the impressions are perceived varies. A few people see dream-like images, others fantasy-like impressions, while some only sense what is happening. On occasion, people will hear an inner voice explaining the situation.
Once my client has an understanding of the cause, I move them into Higher-Self -- an all-knowing level of mind where they can quickly tap into awareness of their totality -- their soul’s journey.
At this level, I have them silently ask their spirit guide to join us. Also, any Master teachers who are willing to help in our cause-and-effect investigation. And if my subject desires, I have them call in anyone they once loved and trusted in life who is now in spirit. Once this powerful group is assembled in spirit, they can project answers to a person seeking understanding.
A Case of Judgment
A middle-aged female participant shared that whenever she feels someone is judging her, it makes her crazy. So I did a quick “back-to-the-cause” regression. The woman began to tremble, and was soon reliving a situation in which her accusers had judged her to be a witch, and she was about to be hung.
A Case of Fibromyalgia
In another case, a woman in her mid-forties explained that she had fibromyalgia, which caused her to be in constant physical pain. Once she was in an altered state, I directed her up into Higher-Self to meet those who love, teach and guide her on a regular basis. At this mental level, and with the help of those in spirit, I directed her back to the real cause of her pain.
She began to describe her hard life as a Christian nun who resided in a tiny cell and suffered physically. I asked her to explain. She said, “Christ suffered for us, so we must suffer for him as well.” In seeking to understand the nun incarnation in relationship to her current life, my subject explained, “The physical pain began about the time I decided to devote my current hypnotherapy practice to Christ Consciousness work.
Somehow her unconscious mind “connected” the past-life suffering for Christ to a need to suffer doing similar work today. I directed her to release the past, acknowledge the false fear associated with the lifetime, and to release the pain.
Over the years of investigating reincarnation, I’ve written many books on the subject. In my seminars, workshops and retreats, I have group regressed over 175,000 participants, and I’ve regressed thousands individually. But I still cannot tell you with absolute certainty how reincarnation works. What I do know is that everyone has past-life memories tucked away in their subconscious mind. When properly accessed, these memories can be re-experienced.
In my book, “Past Lives Future Loves” (Pocket Books), I wrote about seven possibilities as to how reincarnation may actually work. But no matter how it works, or even if it’s reality, past-life regression has anxiety-releasing results. Often a long-term problem is immediately resolved. Depending upon the type of karma you’re dealing with, learning the cause of your problem can alleviate an effect or is the begging of letting go.
David Viscott, MD says, “All feelings come from some definite event, even if that event cannot be clearly defined or located in time.”
If you were to go into therapy, your counselor would try to learn the cause of your conflict, fear, phobia, or anxiety. All too often, counselors cannot find the cause(s), unless they are using regressive hypnotherapy techniques. In knowing the cause, they can quickly and effectively begin to help you resolve your problem.
NEVER GIVE UP. You may have written your New Year’s Resolutions with plans to accomplish the goals you’ve set for 2015. Goals are like “to-do” lists; items you put down to move forward with your life. Dreams seem bigger. Dreams can be about wishes for yourself, your family, or even your country or the world. Who doesn’t dream of world peace? But is it realistic to dream such big things?
I know Jack Canfield and I don’t think he would mind me including one of his stories from his book, “Chicken Soup for the Soul:”
Follow Your Dream by: Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul
“I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.
“The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, "I want to tell you why I let Jack use my house. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a result, the boy's high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up.
"That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200- acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch.
"He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, 'See me after class.'
"The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked, 'Why did I receive an F?'
"The teacher said, 'This is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from an itinerant family. You have no resources. Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you'll have to pay large stud fees. There's no way you could ever do it.' Then the teacher added, 'If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade.'
"The boy went home and thought about it long and hard. He asked his father what he should do. His father said, 'Look, son, you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you.'
"Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all. He stated, 'You can keep the F and I'll keep my dream.'"
“Monty then turned to the assembled group and said, "I tell you this story because you are sitting in my 4,000- square-foot house in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace." He added, "The best part of the story is that two summers ago that same schoolteacher brought 30 kids to camp out on my ranch for a week." When the teacher was leaving, he said, 'Look, Monty, I can tell you this now. When I was your teacher, I was something of a dream stealer. During those years I stole a lot of kids' dreams. Fortunately you had enough gumption not to give up on yours.'"
“Don't let anyone steal your dreams. Follow your heart, no matter what.”
