Past life regression is one of the most fun and informative things we can do in hypnosis, it can be done just to find your past life or as analysis to identify and solve a problem to make this life easier.
I have taken people back to very ordinary lives such as a pig farmer hundreds of years ago or a business man in Victorian London. I have taken people back to more extraordinary lives such as an Indian Medicine man who ran out of his body with wolves when he slept or a doctor responsible for the lives of a whole colony in a new world. And I have taken one person back to a fantastical life where he was in a mountain with a powerful crystal with ‘other beings’.
An example of how I have used past life recall to help with driving anxiety is a client who went back to a life just before WWII where he loved driving. Unfortunately later in that life he burned to death at the wheel of a jeep. I just took him back before that to when he found driving exciting and told him that is how he will feel from now on when he sits behind the wheel of a car. He never felt panicky in a car again.
Even after having these experiences with all these people, I am still not convinced that we have all lived before, that there is life after life, but I do not doubt that past life regression is true and not a hoax. I have also had a client go find themselves on a floating rock islands and another made a large disembodied face evaporate during their change process so I know that what is experienced in hypnosis is metaphor for complex subconscious processes. I can’t help thinking that a past life is another metaphor, but that metaphor is no less significant to your life than a previous life. It is real.
The answer to this mystery does not matter as far as problem solving for this lifetime as past life regression can really change your life by giving you a very different perspective from outside your current comfort zone or helping you deal with personal problems with a sense of detachment and therefore relieving some pressure.
It would be good to know if past life regression is real as far as some of life’s bigger questions though. Will we live again? Is life a playground or is our one life the only one we have? Is there such a thing as Karma? If you come and see me in Worthing I can help you with this life’s problems, but I cannot provide definite answers to other questions I am afraid.
Past life regression is not dangerous, if you do it with a a good hypnotist it is perfectly safe. Everything that happens in hypnosis is a response to the hypnotist’s suggestions so the hypnotist can keep you perfectly safe.
