21 Mar: Spirit Attachments – New Approaches – Andy Tomlinson (Is.25)

by Andy Tomlinson


Andy is an international trainer in regression therapy and shares his thoughts and experiences about “spirit attachments,” something that should be of concern to all past-life and regression therapists. He reviews the current techniques and goes on to explain how to deal with high energy spirit attachments which he calls “dark energy” that require a new approach and techniques.



There is still a debate in regression and past-life therapy about the reality of spirit attachments. Michael Newton, who introduced the amazing spiritual world between lives in his book Journey of Souls (1994), takes the position that spirit attachments do not exist. This was based on the accounts of thousands of clients who, in their … Read the rest

01 Dec: Past-Life Therapy: What is it?- Russel C. Davis (Is.12)

by Russel C. Davis, Ph.D.

Did you ever have to take one of those frustratingly annoying classes in college in which you were required to write a paper detailing a process in such a way that any reader could follow your directions successfully without any prior knowledge? The illustration comes from attempting to translate something which is clear in your mind to something which will be equally clear in the mind of your audience. It’s sort of like trying to explain to a sales clerk a particular shade of orange you want for your patio furniture or telling a friend exactly where it itches on your back. We can see it in our minds and we know what we mean. … Read the rest

01 Dec: TERMS: Is it Possession or “Attachment”? (Is.10)

An article written by Louise Ireland-Frey which appeared in the Fall 1986 issue of the Journal prompted a letter from George Schwimmer. The topic is an important one and those whom he mentioned in his letter were invited by the Journal to pen a response. We are pleased to share with our readers both Dr. Schwimmer’s letter and the comments of Dr. Ireland-Frey and Dr. Baldwin.

 A letter from George Schwimmer, Ph.D.

To The Editor:

I should like to comment on the Journal article, Clinical Depossession, by Dr. Louise Ireland-Frey, as well as on aspects of spirit therapy in general.

To begin with, I feel that therapists should not use the word “possession.” “Possession” implies that the attached entity … Read the rest

01 Nov: Releasing Trapped Energies Through Meditation on the Navajo Mountain Way Myth- Kathleen Jenks (Is.6)

by Kathleen Jenks, M.A.

When I grasped the enormous paradigmatic relevance of the Navajo Mountain Way myth for regression therapy,[1] the direct result was a transformation of one of my own earlier lifetimes. The life in question first emerged in the 1970’s in a regression guided by my friend, the late Marcia Moore. I was a Native American woman, tribe undetermined, in a terrain of forests and meadows. My grandfather in that life practiced witchcraft and was determined to make me his protégé. I was equally determined to resist him because, although I had no knowledge of wiser paths, I loathed the sense of “darkness” I felt around him. In my forties, during one of our increasingly savage … Read the rest

01 Nov: Too Guilty to Have My Child – Peace Roan (Is.6)

by Peace Roan, Ph.D.

The deepest pain in my life sprang from the loss of my daughter Rebecca, whom I surrendered for adoption at birth. I saw her for only a few moments and then let her go because I distrusted my ability to care for her. In order to find peace of mind about this currently, I have struggled to understand why I became pregnant and why I allowed myself to get into a position in which adoption seemed the only option. And why did this happen to Rebecca? In the 20 years since her birth, the pain and sadness of this experience, far from diminishing, increased so that at times I felt debilitated. In my need to … Read the rest

01 Mar: Experiential Data: Karmic Case of Polio – Garrett Oppenheim (Is.3)

by Garrett Oppenheim, Ph.D.

Late in 1986 I asked a colleague of mine to do a past-life regression with me to find out, if possible, why I was afflicted with polio. This conspicuous handicap has been with me since the age of 14 months—which is to say, longer than I can consciously remember. It affected both legs and the lower spine and entailed the use of two leg braces and two crutches to enable me to get around. As I look back on it from today, there is no doubt that it has had a profound effect on my life history.… Read the rest

21 Mar: Hypnosis and Healing – Irene Hickman (Is.3)

by Irene Hickman, D.0.

Hypnosis is an effective tool for looking into the human mind, exploring its facets, and determining its potential. Its increased use will undoubtedly reveal the answers to the questions as to who, what, and why we are and how our minds function. That these answers can be found by using non-directive methods — using questions rather than just suggestions — is one of the things I have leaned from patients in my thirty-seven years of using hypnosis with them. I have constantly been reminded, as I have worked with people from all backgrounds, that they know far more about themselves than I could ever know and that they can be led gently toward ever greater … Read the rest

11 Oct: Past Life Therapy. Contrasting Perspectives with Traditional Psychotherapy – Dianne Seaman Poitier (Is.31)

by Dianne Seaman Poitier


A hypothesis—there are often past life roots to present life psychological patterns.

Belief systems influence the filter through which behavior is interpreted. Regression therapy challenges several longstanding paradigms in traditional psychology. Based on a one lifetime only viewpoint, the assumption is made that the roots of behavior either stem from childhood or are a result of biochemical imbalances. The more traditional model also tends to see the unconscious as layered more linearly, with the earliest memories being the deepest and therefore hardest to access. These four past life cases present contrasting interpretations based on such belief systems models.

The ongoing debate on this subject tends to categorize opinion into two opposing camps. Most popular with … Read the rest

11 Oct: Baby Casus – Marion Boon (Is.31)

by Marion Boon


A baby was born with active past life terrors. He comes to peace after his father works remotely for him. On June 3, 2020 the author conducted a remote session of Holographic Regression Therapy with a client who resides abroad. The client and I used either Zoom or Whatsapp to perform this remote session for his baby son.


On terminology and techniques:

The term Holographic Regression Therapy was introduced in the early 1980’s by Hans ten Dam (2014). I prefer to use this term to describe the modality I used in this case. Regression therapy uses modified states of consciousness and when I refer to TRT or HRT (Transpersonal or Holographic Regression Therapy) I am … Read the rest

11 Oct: Psoriasis Cured by Becoming Aware of its Origin – Bibiana Bistrich (Is.31)

by Bibiana Bistrich


The purpose of this article is to establish a correlation between psoriasis and unresolved past life situations. This study uses Past Life Therapy as an innovative and effective approach with a dual purpose: the solution of an unresolved, traumatic past life event—whose effects remain active in the present life, and the identification of unconscious, unperceived connections between that particular event from the past and the disease suffered in this current life. The process of solving the past life conflict helps shed light on connections between psoriasis and disturbing, shocking events of the patient’s past life. By establishing those unknown connections, the patient is able to heal.
Past Life Therapy sessions consisted of three stages:

1. The … Read the rest
