Past Life Regression

I have always believed in reincarnation. Intrigued by the veil of mystery, fascinated by the idea we have lived previous lives and our soul has always been a traveller.

Past life regression (PLR) is a good way of healing past life traumas and to better understand our present life. It is a process that can be easily done by using hypnosis to achieve a trance like state where a person is able to remember past lives. In this process they are fully aware of what they saying, aware of their surroundings and what they feel, smell, touch, see and hear in the lives they visit.

Research shows that people with chronic health issues that have no known origin, those with phobias - as well as pregnancy issues and diseases have been helped with PLR. It is also helpful to people having a string of bad luck. Those trying to figure out what to do with their life or are interested in knowing if they brought gifts from previous lives, like healing and intuition – can get the answers they seek with PLR. Not all PLR sessions are about the trauma, many have experienced happiness, fulfillment, love and success – this can be very inspiring for them and encourages them to strive to live a life of abundance in their present life.

Signs that you have had past lives include déjà vu—the feeling that you have met a person before or have visited a place previously. Dreams that seem so real it feels as if you actually lived them could be a part of an old life memory coming to the surface. Respected American psychiatrist, hypnotherapist and author who specializes in PLR, Dr Brian Weiss, said talents and abilities, likes and dislikes, and attractions and aversions can also be clues to past lives. You might feel yourself being drawn to certain people or to certain cultures, even if you've never visited them, he said. Adding that some may find they are able to learn certain subjects or prepare for a profession more easily than others. For example, a particular foreign language might come quicker to you, while others are more difficult, said Weiss. Weiss raised an important point about souls – he said it is very common for souls to travel through different lives with the same group of souls. He calls these groupings, soul mates or soul companions, or soul families. We seem to learn our spiritual lessons and accumulate or resolve our karma with our soul groups. Relationships may change from life to life, but the souls are the same, said Weiss.

 “For example, your grandmother might reincarnate as your grandson. In this sense we never lose our loved ones, because we are always being reunited either on the other side or back here in physical bodies,” he said.  

When I studied reiki I came across the Akashic Records. According to the Akashic Records Institute - The Akashic Records of the body holds the memories that we need in this lifetime. As we go through this life creating new memories, these memories are added to the Akashic Records of our body. These records are located behind the neck and are directly connected to our chakras (body’s energy centers) – it is also connected to the Akashic Records of our soul, which is located in the Akasha, otherwise known as the 5th dimension. The 5th dimension is the dimension of creation and manifestation. It is the vibrational space of no judgment, fear, density, thought or ego. While we physically live in the third dimension when we access the akashic records of our soul we are tapping into the 5th dimension, according to the Akashic Records Institute. The Akashic Records of our soul contains all the memories of all experiences acquired in all lifetimes. Every living being has its own Akashic Records.

When I delved further into various modalities of healing – considering I have had requests from clients wanting to know if reiki can heal past life trauma (yes, reiki can heal past life trauma). But in every life we live our soul chooses the lessons we need to learn. Understanding where we coming from and what have we experienced in our past lives – PLR serves a valuable healing modality to help in the healing process. Many of us carry trauma, grief, sorrow, behaviour, attitudes and other traits from our past lives. Often, we can’t understand why this troubles us so – where did it come from? why is it there? how can I get rid of it? – rather we should be focusing on what lessons we need to learn from the experiences our soul gained through its journeys.

While not everyone can be regressed – sometimes we need to sort out the issues we have in this life before we can go back to previous ones. Past life regression has helped many people. A regression always gives you clarity, strengthened belief there is indeed a higher being and that death is only an end of a chapter. The soul’s story continues until it attains moksha (enlightenment).
