“It is no more surprising to be born twice than it is to be born once.” Voltaire
Many civilizations believed for thousands of years that we return to the earth at death, only to be born again into material existence again and again. More recent times made one a heretic to believe ‘such a thing.’ It’s interesting that heretic simply means: ‘to have choice.’ You don’t have to be ‘against’ something else to make a choice in what you believe.
Knowledge and talents that come to us easily are things we have already known in a previous life. Obvious examples are young children who are already composing music at a young age or those who display their talents at the piano as early as age 3, with no instruction.
The most important research has been done with children. Some children have very clear memories of their previous lives before they understand what they are ‘supposed to believe.’ Obviously, doing research on this subject is difficult at best. Dr. Ian Stevenson, from the University of Virginia spent the majority of his life visiting children around the world, searching for scientific evidence of past life memories. His work is documented by a journalist who traveled with him during much of this research, in the book: “Old Souls.”
What is Reincarnation?
Reincarnation is believed to be necessary for the development of the soul….to achieve a higher state of enlightenment of the soul. Although different religions express different ideas about the purpose of reincarnation, you don’t have to belong to an organized religion to come to this belief–that we are born into physical bodies over and over again. Many people in recent times don’t start out in life believing in past lives and reincarnation; they come to the belief through their own personal experiences or because it’s the only thing that makes sense to them as they develop their own belief system about who we are and why we are here.
Who believes in Past Lives and Reincarnation?
It is estimated that at least 25% of the world’s population believes in reincarnation. Some well-known people include Thomas Edison disclosed in his writings near the end of his life, General George Patton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, and even George Harrison of the Beatles.
Several world religions include reincarnation as a basis of their beliefs: Buddhists and Hindus, for example. There are also certain groups of Christians and Jews who believe in reincarnation, which just allows for a different concept of heaven. Heaven can be seen as another form of nirvana or ultimate bliss– at the end of the series of the reincarnation.
What is Past Life Therapy?
Regression therapy to past lives has helped many clients who have not been helped by traditional psychotherapy.
Hypnotic regression therapy frequently offers clients more rapid and deeper results.
It is important to have a psychologist or licensed professional present to help the client integrate the memories into current meaning in one’s life.
People don’t experience these memories from past lives as frightening…..but more useful to understanding their current lives. There is nothing spooky about it. It can feel like you’re ‘making it up’ at first, but when your life, your thinking and your feelings change as a result, you become a believer.
Recalling past lives is just one way that intuition shows up. If you’ve ever had a premonition or a déjà vu experience, you have had a glimpse of your natural intuition. When you are in a hypnotic trance, you are able to tap into this intuition more easily than in your normal logical, thinking mind.
Past life memories are similar to that ‘hunch’ or ‘gut feeling’ that you can have. They are there to offer wisdom and guide you toward healing and understanding. You don’t have to ‘do’ anything….it just happens. There’s nothing you have to prove or justify….you’ll know from your experience.
Past life recall can help to alleviate physical symptoms or emotional issues. The understanding or life changing results can happen immediately after the sessions, but it’s common for the results to come to you days after your session. Contact me today to learn more.
