Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recall memories of past lives. By exploring these past lives, a hypnotherapist can help a person to uncover personal stories that hint to who they are now. The hope is that discovered memories help to explain what is being experienced in the current life.
Past life regression is a therapeutic technique for accessing and remembering a person’s past lives or incarnations.
Past life regression is a holistic therapy that works with a person as a whole - body, mind, emotions and spirit.
There is a common misconception that practitioners ‘perform’ hypnotherapy on a client. Past life regression, as well as other types of hypnotherapy, are an active therapy, whereby the client participates in the process.
It can be a full sensory experience - clients will not only visualise situations, but they may feel, hear sounds and recall specific smells.
Practitioners of past life therapy use hypnosis to help their clients relax and encourage the opening of their subconscious minds. Other techniques such as direct suggestions can help to trigger a recall, and specific questions are designed to elicit statements and memories of the client’s past lives.
Some people hope to try past life regression only out of curiosity to see who they were in the past. But for most, it’s a path for personal transformation and healing.
A specific intention for revisiting a past life memory can be beneficial throughout the process. Focusing on this intention, a practitioner uses it to guide the client to a past life memory associated with the outcome desired.
The hypnotherapist guides the client through a guided relaxation to allow them to become deeply relaxed. In a deeply relaxed state, the subconscious memories hopefully surface.
There is no way of knowing for sure what will be experienced during a regression therapy, as everyone's experience is unique.
Some people may experience several past lives, while others may delve into one in more detail.
It is normal to feel unsure about where the memories have come from, or wonder if they were made up. But, as a person becomes more comfortable with the process, their doubts can fade.
Regression therapy, like many types of alternative treatments, are not for everyone. An openness to reincarnation and past lives is a prerequisite to doing the regression.
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 are religious or not, it is thought that by experiencing yourself as a soul in other lifetimes, you can gain a profound awareness that you are more than a physical body.
