This article reviews the possibility that the psyche travels through time and space landing in the exact “past life” to rework problems, issues or emotional blocks that may be hindering one’s soul growth. Dr. Rodriguez reviews the notion that state bound matrixes of energy live in an archetypal field made accessible in the paradigm of past lives, which she terms Holographic Journeying. This conveys a sense of one part (one life) affecting the whole rather than seeing lives as a linear string of embedded memories. In this informative excerpt, Dr. Rodriguez gives examples from her work with clients emphasizing the therapeutic value of this work.
The psyche loves to tell stories. It tells them every night in dreamtime. It comes through fairytales and in our myths to tell a story. Perhaps it is the story that wants to be told, and finds its own portals through which to be heard. It comes through dreams, art, poetry, dance, and in soul journeys framed in past life vignettes. It is as if the story, when it finally gets to tell its tale, surrenders its hold on us. Our job is to understand the language of the psyche. Psyche is a Greek word meaning “Soul.” We might as easily call past life expressions soul stories. I refer to this kind of work in therapy, as “Holographic Journeying.” Holographic journeying is an interactive imagery framed in the notion of past lives, yet is a more holistic construct modeled after the holographic notion of the eternal now. It is a regression into another time period in now-time, played out in the imagery of virtual lives. It is also a portal into a threshold of non-linear time, waiting to be accessed, replayed, and reviewed for our awakening of the Self.
