Is past life regression real? Do you have to believe in reincarnation to have one?
Having just completed a three-course, year-long graduate program in past life regression at Atlantic University, I love those questions. So let me attempt a coherent answer.
Past life regression use hypnosis to bring clients into their subconscious, where they can access information and experiences relating to other lives they may have lived. May have lived. Because there’s another explanation, too.
Maybe you’ve had a sort of deja-vu feeling that you’ve lived in another era. One of my oldest friends had that feeling when he went to the Imperial War Museum in London: he looked at a suit of armor and remembered wearing it in another life. Since in this life he was a pacifist, well, I thought it was odd. But maybe not. Maybe the lessons he learned in past lives were brought to bear in this one. He’d been to war and wanted no part of it.
I’d never had a strong deja vu about another life, just little hints. You’d think I’d want to explore the possibility of a past life, right? But three years ago I decided instead to have what’s called a between-lives regression. It was meant to take me to the time before this life, when I would have met with my spirit guides in the afterlife and made the plans for all that would unfold in this life. I went to the afterlife in that regression–and had a very unexpected and cool experience.
Today, I’ve been regressed many times and each time, something new and interesting came up.
Not required to believe to have one
But what if you don’t believe in reincarnation? That’s ok, too, because a past life regression takes us into our subconscious mind–which has all sorts of information for us. Any time you are being creative–painting, knitting, writing, even blogging–it’s your subconscious helping you along. Creativity is always in service to the subconscious. So it’s powerful.
If you’re not a believer in past lives, you can call it “active imagination” — because it’s all your subconscious. And through a past life regression, you get important messages and insights about your life from your subconscious.
Sounds a little woo-woo, right?
What if I told you that there are plenty of documented cases of children remembering past lives in detail–even with names and dates–and that historical records backed them up? It’s true. And that makes it far more believable.
