The Basics of Past Life Regression: What It Is and How It Works

Updated: Nov 29, 2023


past life regression

Past life regression is a type of therapy that aims to uncover and explore past lives that may be affecting an individual's present life. It is a controversial practice, with skeptics often criticizing the lack of scientific evidence to support its claims. However, for many people, past life regression has provided a new perspective on their lives, allowing them to heal past traumas, gain insight into their relationships, and explore their spirituality.


What is past life regression?


Past life regression is a form of therapy that involves accessing memories and experiences from past lives. It is based on the belief that individuals have lived multiple lives and that past experiences can influence present behaviour and emotions. The purpose of past life regression is to help individuals understand and heal from past traumas or unresolved issues that may be affecting their current lives.


During a past life regression session, a trained practitioner guides the client into a hypnotic state, also known as a trance state. The practitioner uses various techniques to relax the client and help them access their subconscious mind. The client is then guided through a series of questions and visualizations, aimed at exploring memories from past lives.


The experience of past life regression varies from person to person. Some people report vivid and detailed memories, while others may only experience vague or symbolic images. The practitioner may ask the client to describe their surroundings, the people they see, and the emotions they are feeling. The practitioner may also ask the client to explore how these past experiences relate to their current life and any unresolved issues they may be facing.


How does past life regression work?


The exact mechanism of how past life regression works is not fully understood. Some practitioners believe that past life regression works by accessing the collective unconscious, a concept introduced by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. The collective unconscious is the shared storehouse of archetypes and symbols that all humans share, regardless of culture or upbringing. By accessing this collective unconscious, practitioners believe that they can tap into the memories of past lives that are stored in the unconscious mind.


Others believe that past life regression works by accessing the Akashic Records. The Akashic Records are believed to be a cosmic record of all experiences, thoughts, and emotions that have ever occurred. By accessing the Akashic Records, practitioners believe that they can gain insight into past lives and the lessons that were learned in those lives.


Critics of past life regression argue that the memories accessed during a past life regression session are not memories from past lives, but rather are products of the client's imagination. They argue that the practitioner's questions and visualizations can plant false memories in the client's mind. However, proponents of past life regression argue that the memories accessed during a session can provide valuable insight and healing, regardless of whether they are actual memories from past lives or not.


What are the benefits of past life regression?


Proponents of past life regression believe that it can provide a range of benefits, including:

  • Healing past traumas

  • Gaining insight into relationships

  • Exploring spirituality

  • Increasing self-awareness

  • Overcoming fears and phobias

  • Finding purpose and direction

  • Deepening personal and spiritual growth


Healing past traumas

Past life regression can help individuals uncover and heal past traumas that may be affecting their present lives. By exploring past lives, individuals may gain a new perspective on their current struggles and find new ways to cope and heal.


Gaining insight into relationships

Past life regression can provide insight into past life relationships that may be affecting present relationships. By exploring past relationships, individuals may gain a better understanding of why certain relationships are challenging or why they are drawn to certain people.


Exploring spirituality

Past life regression can provide a new perspective on spirituality and the nature of existence. By exploring past lives, individuals may gain a deeper understanding of their soul's journey and purpose.


Increasing self-awareness

Past life regression can increase self-awareness by uncovering patterns and behaviours that may be rooted in past lives. By understanding these patterns, individuals may be better able to make changes in their current lives to break negative patterns and create a more positive future.


Overcoming fears and phobias

Past life regression can help individuals overcome fears and phobias that may have originated in past lives. By exploring the root cause of these fears, individuals may be able to release them and move forward with more confidence.


Finding purpose and direction

Past life regression can provide insight into an individual's life purpose and direction. By exploring past lives, individuals may gain a better understanding of their strengths, passions, and talents, and find new ways to apply them in their current life.


Deepening personal and spiritual growth

Past life regression can be a powerful tool for personal and spiritual growth. By exploring past lives, individuals may gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them, leading to a greater sense of inner peace and fulfillment.


What to expect during a past life regression session?


During a past life regression session, the therapist will typically begin by discussing your goals and concerns. The therapist will then guide you into a hypnotic state, using relaxation techniques and visualizations.


Once you are in a trance state, the past life regression therapist will begin asking questions and guiding you through visualizations to access memories from past lives. You may experience vivid or symbolic images, sensations, and emotions, or even hear sounds or voices.


The therapist will help you explore these memories, asking questions to gain a deeper understanding of the experience. The therapist may also guide you to explore how these past experiences relate to your current life and any unresolved issues they may be facing.


At the end of the session, the regression therapy practitioner will guide you back to a normal waking state, and discuss the experience and any insights gained during the session.


It is important to note that past life regression is not a one-time solution to all problems. It may take several sessions to fully explore and heal past traumas or gain deeper insights into one's life purpose and direction.


How long is a Past Life Regression session?



past life regression

My past life regression session is 2 hours and contains pre and after-hypnosis talk. Other therapists may offer this within one hour (my normal hypnotherapy session is 1 hour), but I would like to make sure that we have plenty of time to discuss what you see and feel, and that you have time to jump into other past lives as well if it is needed.


Unresolved issues, unresolved patterns


I combine multiple therapy tools to help you release traumas, limiting beliefs, triggers, and patterns so we can use the knowledge you gained through your past life regression journey as a starting point to release what’s holding you back from living a happy, confident life.

Conclusion


Past life regression is a controversial practice that aims to explore memories and experiences from past lives. While skeptics argue that the memories accessed during a past life regression session are products of the imagination, proponents believe that the memories accessed can provide valuable insight and healing. Past life regression can help individuals heal past traumas, gain insight into relationships, explore spirituality, increase self-awareness, overcome fears and phobias, find purpose and direction, and deepen personal and spiritual growth.
