The transpersonal therapist, familiar with past lives and future lives, finds in the extended regression experience an aspect which is revealed in the transpersonal therapeutic environment that is not of, or has not originated from, planet Earth, but somewhere else. The present study deals with this aspect of transpersonal therapy and is collectively called the transmundo experience or the transmundo being (TMB). There are two basic types of these non-Earth experiences, one appears to be a part of the extended self of the client and the other type is not. It is the part-of-self TMB experience that is often not extraordinary, fitting into the tapestry of other facets of the self and is the TMB aspect most in evidence in this study. Those normally considered not part of extended self, are the other TMB aspects represented by the Walk-in, the TMB attachment, and the classic abduction experience. A survey instrument assessed the characteristics of these various TMB experiences.
By definition, a transpersonal therapist must see the client as having an aspect that is “trans-self,” that is beyond the physical self. Indeed, in transpersonal therapy it is the part that is trans-physical that contains the information necessary for understanding, spiritual growth, as well as physical and psychological healing. The transpersonal therapist, familiar with past lives and future lives, finds in the extended regression experience, an aspect which is revealed in the transpersonal therapeutic environment that is not of, or has not originated from, planet Earth. That transpersonal experience is not located on past, present, or future planet Earth, but somewhere else. This study deals with this aspect of transpersonal therapy.
Of these non-Earth experiences there are two basic types, one is or appears to be an extended self of the client and the other is not. Typically, the part self comes up as one experience in the rich panoply of experiences in regression therapy and is part of transpersonal therapy. It is often not extraordinary and simply fits into the tapestry of other life experiences making up the dynamics of the issue being addressed in the client.
