Benefits of Past Life Regression

by Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, PhD, Contributor to Hypnotherapy on Allthingshealing.com

Editor’s Note from Cynthia Lindner: Past lives do not always fit into everyone’s spiritual beliefs, however it is undeniable that for many, this hypnotic approach quickly releases issues.

Past Life Regression is valuable and the only source for clearing/healing traumatic experiences in prior lifetimes, which otherwise holds us back from full actualization in this life, and/or is causing distress. Additional benefits are activating creativity or a valuable talent that was actively expressed before but has remained latent or unrecognized in this life.

Past Life Regression can be the sole focus of a hypnosis session or it can be initiated within the context of an alchemical hypnotherapy session. A session may include other experiences in addition to visiting a past-life, such as a regression to the past of this life, etheric plane communication, inner guide work, and/or life between lives work. The methods frequently overlap–both EPC and Reframing can occur in either this life or a past life. Inner Guides can be contacted during any of the other techniques. Alchemical hypnotherapy’s name stems from alchemy–usually thought of as the science or art of transforming base metals into gold– but the ancient alchemists were primarily concerned with transforming the human spirit (with the fašade of “chemistry” serving to protect them from persecution), and contacting past lives was basic to their process. A key part of the process is loving, accepting, or making peace with things as they are (or as they were in the past life), thus freeing the energy of transformation.

The benefits of Past Life Regression include the following:

Clearing/healing trauma: This is the most common aspect of healing in past life regression. When trauma is encountered, options include running and changing, rescuing the past-life self (PLS) and bringing him/her forward to the present, or viewing the trauma and the life as a whole from the perspective of the Higher Self.

Healing overt acts (the past-life self as the perpetrator rather than the victim): Healing involves the PLS experiencing remorse (assisted by one of several methods as needed), either receiving the forgiveness of the victim(s) or performing an appropriate atonement, and obtaining forgiveness of the present-life self for the overt act(s).

Contacting creativity: Most of us have had a variety of talents and desirable attributes at different points in our many past lives. We can journey to one or more lifetimes (with or without first naming a talent or attribute we would like to contact) and bring forward either the attribute itself or the PLS (who becomes in effect an Inner Guide).

Rewriting past-life contracts: Part of our karma involving another person may stem from a promise or agreement made in a past life with that person, such as “I’ll never leave you.” After contacting the lifetime where the contract originated, the past life practitioner, together with an Inner Guide of the client (usually the Higher Self) ascertains whether there exists any outstanding debt or obligation, if so performing an appropriate atonement, and then revising the contract in a way most supportive of the client’s present needs.

Grounding/Affirming: While this benefit of Past Life Regression seems inconsequential–it is the most profound and significant reason for engaging in the process. Many clients after having completed several Past Life Regressions state they feel more grounded in who they are; now they understand why they have certain characteristics, passions, desires, values, talents, concerns, etc. and can use the information to live a happier and more balanced life in the now.

People frequently ask–”What if I only think the information is a past life, what if I am only making it up?” There are checks and balances to know if the information is truly a past life. However, if it is truly made up–it is still valid, if the person benefits from the ‘made up story.’ In reality all of our life is made up as we go along. Didn’t you make up the story that you wanted to go to college–become a doctor, lawyer, etc, get married, have children and grow old with your partner–and then you are doing/did just that. So what if you made up a past life that benefited you in this life–who has been harmed? No one has been harmed. I rest my case.

Definitely believe I've lived before, but it wasn't through hypnosis. Heidi has it wrong. You are the 'sole owner', it's just you putting on and taking off a coat (each life). You are not the product of all your experiences. Meaning you HAVE experiences, not you ARE experiences.
Past lives are commonly believed in Hinduism and other things, but frowned on and denounced by Christianity etc. It's also squashed by modern neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry by the all-is-brain boys, that all is chemicals and elecrical impulses, including any and all ideas such as past lives..
