School days, school daze

January 13, 2017

Pierre Teilhard de Chardins said that.

It’s that time again–the new semester has started for me and it’ll be the last in the Master’s certificate program I’m doing in Integrated Imagery.  Which is another way to say that I’m learning hypnotherapy as it’s applied to past life regressions at Atlantic University in Virginia Beach.  That’s the school Edgar Cayce founded in the 1930s and it’s now an accredited distance learning university. Except that this program requires a four-day residency every semester and that’s where I’m going at the end of the month to meet up with the three other women in this particular class and our mentor, who is a master regressionist.

I’m excited about that, for sure, but what’s REALLY got me stoked is that this final semester is all about between lives regressions, and we’re learning how to guide Travelers to that time between lives when they are with the spirit guides making plans for the next life. Which could be this one. So we take them back to a past life and then to the afterlife.  I love regressing people. Love, love, love it. And between lives is fascinating. Really fascinating.

The reason I got so absolutely excited I was practically jumping for joy when I started the reading is this: the afterlife is where i go in just about every regression, even past life regressions. It’s where i am most comfortable, it’s where I feel most at home and usually I don’t want to return at the end of the regression.

This semester we are doing intensives on each other, which means that we’ll be doing four days of regressions–in which we’ll be the Traveler sometimes and the Guide sometimes. It’s thrilling for me to think about going back “home” and meeting up again with my guides, of whom I’ve only met two.

So let me make clear that I’m not exactly “normal,” but I’m not a pushover for every swami in a turban, either. I’ve been around new age spirituality for a long time. The good, the bad, and the charlatan, I’ve seen them all.  It takes a lot to convince me something is real.

This stuff is real.

Meanwhile, I’m diligently working on getting my business up and and running by spring. I dragged my feet because I’m basically lazy, but push has come to shove and I’ve been forging ahead. Regressions–both past-life and between-lives–will be part of my new business, but not the main focus. But I’ll be taking a week off from it to hang out for a week at the Cayce A.R.E. and also hang out in the afterlife.

More will be revealed in time….

So, do you remember this song? I can’t recall how i first encountered it, and had no idea it was more than 100 years old. Here’s the 1907 version of it.

    i am so excited for you to embark on this new venture. It will be absolutetly fascinating! BTW, NO ONE can figure out what is going on with my Skype deal. But that was just the start–whole computer went kerflooey after that–shut down, wouldn’t load, bizarre messages on the screen, I couldn’t use it at all until yesterday. So,I went to email on my phone–suddenly my phone tells me I have no email account??? 55 emails disappeared from my inbox. I have no idea what I lost. THEN, I went to set up my new notebook I got for Xmas and I couldn’t get past the message that I wasn’t connected to the Internet,BUT I CLEARLY WAS! Sooo, I called my husband at work to ask him what to do and I kept getting a message that the number had been disconnected, which, of course, it hadn’t! Forget regression, I need a techno exorcism, girl! I am so psyched for you to get started on this venture–regressing people, not exorcisms!

  5. This is so interesting! I would love to learn more about your journey. Keep us posted!

  6. Laurie Stone says:

    Wow. Exciting, if not intimidating. At least to me. It opens up such a huge universe, I’m not sure I’m ready, although still intrigued. Hmmm…. which part will win?

  7. What an exciting adventure! I can’t wait to see your new business explode and all the cool “travels” you’ll have.

  8. Virginia LeBlanc says:

    Fascinating stuff Carol. I would love to hear anything you would like to share about past life regression. Good luck on your new business venture. I have heard the song before. It seems to be talking about past life regression.

  9. I had no idea you were embarking on this new adventure of school and then hanging out a new shingle. I hope it’s all you want it to be. As for past regressions? Not sure I’d want to know about it for me but hey! You never know. It does sound intriguing.

  10. What an interesting endeavor, Carol. I wish you all the best!

  11. Jennifer says:

    Wow, sounds so exciting! I remember reading about when you first started these classes and I’m glad to see that you’ve continued. I can’t wait to read more. And as for that song….used to sing it in elementary school.

  12. This has always been such a fascinating subject. So cool that you have been involved in this! I think most people can benefit from this therapy.

    Exciting times ahead Carol. There is always something new to learn and new adventures to take. Best of luck with the business. Enjoy!
