Past-Life Regression
“Everyone in the business, the one who abets, the one who cuts, the one who kills, the one who sells, the one who prepares, the one who offers, the one who eats ... all are killers!”

- Mahabharata (22)

During Past-Life-Regression the subject is regressed to another lifetime. In other words, the subject is helped to experience or relive past lives. The ‘regressor’ is the one who does this process of regression. In the process of regression the subject is first guided into deep states by giving constant suggestions. After reaching a ‘satisfactory’ level of altered state of consciousness, the subject is first regressed gradually down to the in-utero state (the time when subject was in the mother’s womb). During the in-utero state, the soul does not completely associate with the fetus. It keeps moving in and out of the fetus and spends most of the time in the astral realms. Hence, the subject when regressed to the in-utero state can relive glimpses of the souls experiences of inter-life states and memories of past lives. The subject is able to describe the experiences verbally. Even in this New Age, Past-Life-Regression remains one of the best techniques to energize the spirit of individuals by making them to journey into their past lives. By exploring our past lives we can find the solutions for all present life problems.

Past-Life-Regression:
Past Life Regression is a Holistic Healing Modality because it works on the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. It transports one back to those times before one’s birth and regresses one to previous lifetimes. This is done to sort out problems that a person may be experiencing in the present. The reason for undertaking Past Life Regression is to improve the spiritual quality of our life, right now. Its chief objective is to make our life easier, better and more fulfilling, in this present moment. Past Life Regression addresses the root cause and it enables extremely deep change to take place at the very source of the problem. It does not deal with external symptoms. It directly addresses the internal cause.
 
Cause and Effect:
Past-life-regression is based on the principles of cause and effect (also known as law of karma). Something that has been set in motion at some time in the past results in a corresponding effect on a person’s present physical, emotional, mental or spiritual well being, at this moment. This cause may be a past desire, a past thought, past feeling, a past emotion, a past vow, a past promise, a past decision, a past evasion or a past traumatic experience.
 
Benefits of Past-Life-Regression:
Past-Life-Regression helps to heal chronic diseases.This is done in the following manner: Past-Life-Regression helps individuals to understand the karmic patterns involved and the resultant energy blockages. It is these energy blockages that manifest as diseases, which are sometimes chronic. The understanding that flows clears the energy blockages and thereby the disease is healed. Take the example of a person who has had a past life wherein he/she was never allowed to express his/her views or who had to pay a heavy price for having expressed them. In this lifetime, such a person may have a disease of the throat, which constantly hinders the person’s ability to talk normally. After reliving the past life and emerging with an understanding of the root cause, the energy blockages get cleared and the person gets healed of his/her throat disease.

Past-Life-Regression helps overcome Fears and Phobias:
Past-Life-Regression releases individuals from all kinds of fears and phobias by bringing about an understanding of the specific causes of these fears and phobias. The causes are mostly present in the previous lives. They could also be present in the earlier part of the current life. For example a person who had this fear of closed spaces (claustrophobia) had experienced a past life where he was buried alive in an earthquake. Once he relived this trauma, he was able to overcome his claustrophobia immediately.

Past-Life-Regression improves one’s inter-personal relationships: Past-Life-Regression improves one’s interpersonal relationships by causing the person to understand the past life relationships with those individuals. Till this is understood, clashes and friction with one’s present lifetime’s relations is inevitable. Once the understanding flows, the person is able to see the larger perspective and therefore the relationships are improved or ‘healed’.

Past-Life-Regression frees us from the fear of death once and for all: Past-Life- Regression frees us from the fear of death once and for all. The fear of death is the biggest of all fears plaguing mankind. Past-Life-Regression helps us to explore our past lives and through this exploration we realize that we are eternal beings. We understand that death is a mere transition from one state to another and that the essence of our being continues into eternity as we have lived before and are going to live again after ‘death’. Moreover, once an individual has relived his/her past lives, he/she validates this understanding in the light of the personal experiences had. This removes the fear of death once and for all.
 

THE MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT PAST-LIFE-REGRESSION

"……..Explain the River of the soul; whence or in what order you have come……."
 -Zoroaster


1.    “Only the present life is relevant and past lives are not relevant to the present life.”
This belief is far from the truth about past lives and their impact on the present life.  Any one would agree that we are the products of all our experiences from birth till the present time.  This is true not only for the present life experiences.  In reality, we are the products of all our experiences carried with us from all our past lives in addition to the experiences of the present life.  We contain all the energies of memory and experience of our past.  We carry our soul energy with us and it is inseparable from us.  It defines who we are. The purpose of past life regression is to get rid of the negative patterns of the past which continue to affect the person's present life.

2.     “Past is past and does not affect the present.”
Scientific research in the field of past lives indicates that past life memories are stored in the mind field and higher (finer) vibrational subtle energies.   Past life memories are not in the past.  They are here and now because we carry the memories and the effects of those lives in our energy field today and unconsciously act out of those stored beliefs and experiences.

3.    “We cannot change anything through Past-Life- Regression.”
Past-Life-Regression helps people to discover the root cause of an issue.  When a person discovers the root cause of an issue, understanding flows.  He or she can then begin to take steps to change a pattern or behavior that has been blocking his/her life and preventing him/her from finding true peace, happiness, and joy.

4.    “The past life memories that are experienced during regression are due to the suggestions of the facilitator.”
Experienced and qualified past-life-regression-facilitators do not give suggestions during regression.  They only direct the client to seek the root cause of an issue, or the memory of the client's present problems and situations.

5.    “Everyone who has seen a past life thinks that they were a very well known personality in that life.”
This is the kind of statement made by people with insignificant knowledge about past-lives.  In my experience of over 14 years in the field, the large majority of people recall very ordinary lives, and remember highlights such as work, relationships, loves, marriages, births, separations, and deaths.  Just as these events stand out in one's current life, it is true that these or similar highlights are memories of one's past life.  If the experiences were the result of their own thinking, they would see mostly glamorous lifetimes but this is not the case as most lives recalled are very ordinary.  Also, though it may surprise many, the happiest lifetimes reported were those of a beggar or tramp!

6.    “A Facilitator does not need to believe in past lives and reincarnation to do past-life-regression work or past-life-counseling work.”
A facilitator's attitude, experience, understanding of metaphysical concepts and truths, and abilities with concepts of the soul's journey can have a positive, negative, or limited influence in counseling and past-life-regression.  Scientific research into the nature of consciousness shows us that the facilitator affects the energy field of the subject.  This is in addition to the effect of the subject’s own thoughts, beliefs, and experiences.   Only an experienced practitioner whose belief system is compatible with the concept of past lives should conduct past-life-regression work.

Though the subject of past lives is not a religious belief, it nevertheless involves a belief system that affects the facilitators' energy field.  If a subject recalls what may be a past life memory, the facilitator must at least be open minded to this concept.  If the facilitator has unresolved programming, or strict religious beliefs that are not open to the possibility of past lives, he or she could affect the success of a subject's regression. 

Not only a facilitator's religious and other beliefs, but also the facilitator's fears can affect a regression.  For example, if the facilitator is uncomfortable with the idea of the subject reaching a painful emotional experience, he or she may avoid that experience by guiding the subject to move beyond the memory or to view the experience only from an objective viewpoint.  By doing so, the facilitator would be losing a wonderful opportunity to make the subject actually relive the experience.  “To relive is to relieve”.  This is a great universal truth, which explains the therapeutic benefits of past-life-regression.  That is why it is very important that the facilitator should have a belief system, which is compatible with reincarnation and the immortality of the soul as this will result in the best possible benefits to the subject.  

7.    “Past-Life-Regression can be done by anyone.”
So can surgery, but you wouldn't want to take that chance! It is important to go to someone who is trained and experienced in the field.  One should thoroughly check the credentials and experience of the practitioner.  The trust level and comfort of the client with his or her practitioner is very essential for one to be able to reach the deep levels to access the information contained in the subconscious mind.

8.    “If we really had past lives,we would then remember them.”
In reality there are many an occasion when we ‘remember’ our past lives.  At times, these remembrances occur spontaneously.  On many other occasions, certain external events or stimulus can act as a trigger and the memory of our past life/lives surfaces.  This could happen for instance:

a)    When you meet someone for the first time but you get the uncanny feeling that you know that person extremely well.

b)    While visiting a foreign country for the first time and knowing where a building or road is.

c)     When you are in a situation and get a feeling that you have been in exactly the same situation in the past though you have no evidence of such a situation in this lifetime.

d)    When you meet a person for the first time and have an immediate feeling of lack of trust for the person.

e)    When you meet a person for the first time and you get the feeling of immense love for and emotional attachment to that person (this is commonly known as love at first sight).

f)    When as child you used to have (you may still have them) memories of having lived in a different place in a different family and in different life circumstances.  The narration of such experiences usually fell on deaf ears and you were gradually conditioned to believe that those past-life experiences and memories of those past-life experiences were not valid. 

There are many other ways in which situations in this lifetime trigger our past-life memories.  Most of us, however, are conditioned to ignore those subtle intuitive messages.
