Past life regression is really an extension of regression within this current life. The part of the individual that survives death is held in the subconscious. If something traumatic happened in a past life, the memory of it is stored in the subconscious and this moves forward with the individual into subsequent lives. These stored traumas can affect personality, behaviour and health. Past life therapy allows buried memories from past lives to surface (just as buried memories of a present life can be remembered during present life hypnotherapy). When these memories are examined it gives the client an opportunity to look again at the events and to face them from a different viewpoint, allowing them to deal with whatever happened. Having done so they often find that seeing the events from this different perspective allows the problems or issues besetting them in this life to be resolved.
Physical injuries received in previous lives may be the cause of pain or discomfort in this current life. Likewise fears and phobias may also date back to events in previous lives and similarly our character will also be affected by what has gone before.
It is not essential to believe in reincarnation to take part in past life regression therapy; the results can be just as impressive whatever beliefs are held. The regressions can be a fascinating and revealing journey into the past; in itself amazing enough, but what is more amazing is the frequency with which people find themselves freed of their health or other
There is no need to worry about what may be uncovered during the regression process. For the most part it may seem mundane as the majority find that in previous lives they were just everyday people doing whatever was normal at that time. People often experience regression as if it were being viewed on a cinema screen or as in a dream. No difficulty is caused by re-experiencing these memories, even though it is possible to relive emotion and possibly pain felt in the past, it is only fleeting and has the benefit of helping resolve issues in the current life.
