ONGOING RESEARCH. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders of Vietnam Veterans: A Proposal for Research and Therapeutic Healing Utilizing Depossession (Is.5)

Submitted by Maurice L. Albertson, Ph.D., Dan S. Ward, Ph.D., & Bill Baldwin, D.D.S., D.Min.

Summarized and Critiqued by Nanette de Fuentes, Ph.D.

This proposal, currently in the process of formulation by the Rocky Mountain Research Institute in Fort Collins, Colorado, will investigate the healing potential of releasement from human-attached consciousness in Vietnam Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Dr. Edith Fiore, a practicing psychologist, in her book The Unquiet Dead, has described signs and symptoms which indicate such attachment. An early formulation of this research proposal is presented here in order to share with Journal readers the difficulties and evolving clarification of a research study in areas of paranormal healing and past-life therapy.… Read the rest

Healing Relationships Through Past-Life Regression: A New Paradigm – Clyde H. Reid (Is.5)

by Clyde H. Reid, Th.D.

Past-life therapy often deals with issues that involve interpersonal relationships. Connections with mothers or fathers, relationships with children and spouses or with good friends, are often influenced by the information and insight that emerge from a past-life regression. However, the literature on past-life therapy tends to focus on intrapersonal material rather than relationships, which is surprising considering how many people seek therapy because of problems in a relationship.

Conventionally, tracing current relationships to past lives is done with one person, and I will present some examples of this approach and its effectiveness. Following these I will describe a personal experience where several parties to a relationship were regressed together and shared the past-life experience … Read the rest

Rescripting in Past Life Therapy: Personal Experiences – Chet Snow (Is.5)

by Chet B. Snow, Ph.D.

There is no doubt that the concept of “rescripting,” or client intervention within the regression therapy process to alter seemingly “fixed” past life events and/or attitudes, is both controversial and exciting. Borrowed from the lexicon of hypnotherapy where such intervention into “real” or “imagined” events from the client’s current childhood is commonplace and often quite effective in leading to symptom removal, rescripting takes on new philosophical dimensions when applied to a past-life scenario. It seems to call into question such fundamental human issues as free will, karma, or the law of “cause and effect,” and even the chronological order of time itself. With such important matters involved, it is not surprising that this technique … Read the rest

Rescripting: An Opinion – Hazel Denning (Is.5)

by Hazel Denning, Ph.D.

Rescripting is a comparatively recent concept introduced by hypnotherapists to describe an intervention with clients who have painful memories. Suggesting that they rewrite the unpleasant event in their past, clients imagine the event to be as they would have liked it to be. For example, if their mothers rejected them at birth, they create a story in which they were lovingly accepted. This technique has been adopted by some past-life therapists to deal with traumatic events in a past life. Clients may or may not respond favorably to this suggestion, but when they do create their own version of the experience, there is often a feeling of relief and satisfaction.

Regression Using Rescripting: Dr. Denning Regresses Dr. Snow – Hazel Denning (Is.5)

by Hazel Denning, PhD

This regression took place during three days of research on the Mind Mirror at the Brentwood Psychological Center in Los Angeles. Senior therapists regressed each other or volunteers with both therapist and subject attached to Mind Mirror biofeedback monitors. In this regression Dr. Hazel Denning regressed Dr. Chet Snow.

After a brief relaxation and balancing of the chakra centers, Dr. Snow was asked to repeat vigorously a phrase which had been identified previously as disturbing to him: “It is unfair!” This phrase took him back to a scene in 1772 in a French village called Angers. As a budding journalist of 26, he saw his father, an intolerant scientist, being refused church burial, all because … Read the rest

Using Rescripting to Transform Patterns and Address Core Issues – Treelight Green (Is.5)

by Treelight Green, Ph.D.

Through the years of involvement in past-life work, spontaneous regressions, guiding myself, and being guided by others, I have created a style of working with past lives which to my knowledge is unique and effective. Reliving a past life can be a cathartic experience in releasing emotions and identifying thought patterns and beliefs from which one is operating. However, simply identifying the patterns and releasing the emotions is not always sufficient. A transformation of the past needs to take place in order truly to impact a person’s current life and insure that old patterns and beliefs do not repeat themselves. This can be done through transformational imaging and rescripting.

Though each regression is a dynamic … Read the rest

Time Travel – Henry Leo Bolduc (Is.1)

by Henry Leo Bolduc

Time travel, or age regression, is a tool for better understanding one’s self, for obtaining greater insight into soul origins, life purposes, and skills. With greater self knowledge it is possible and relatively easy to put the past to work in building a brighter, more rewarding future. Many excellent books written by nationally known psychologists, counselors, therapists, and physicians who use past life research to discover the origins of patients’ fears, anxieties, habit patterns, and health problems, are now available. Past-life therapy is being used more every day and is becoming an innovative and important tool in the field of mind sciences.

Even people who do not believe in past lives can achieve results and insight … Read the rest

Rescripting in Prenatal, Perinatal, and Early Childhood Regression Work – Barbara Findeisen (Is.5)

by Barbara Findeisen, M.A., M.F.C.C.

Peeling off roles and examining life scripting can lead to dramatic life changes. In the regression of my clients, it is possible to discover life scripts within the traumatic situations they have experienced. By returning to the traumas, the etiology of the scripting is uncovered, because during early traumas the organism imprints on survival patterns. As these experiences are relived, it is clear that the child makes decisions based on his interpretation of what is happening at the time and these decisions form the core belief behind the script.

Rescripting: A Family of Therapeutic Techniques – Kenneth Kaisch (Is.5)

by Kenneth Kaisch, Ph.D.

Rescripting is a hypnotic technique which is occasionally used in psychotherapy. It also refers to a family of related therapeutic techniques. Re-scripting per se involves the hypnotic addition of life experience in order to modify the patient’s felt experience of him/herself. It is most often used when the patient has an experience deficit that is so profound as to be debilitating. For example, a patient who had severely abusive parents may be so deprived of ordinary parental affection as to be unable to establish an adequate sense of self worth despite the use of ordinary therapeutic treatment. In cases such as this, rescripting is the treatment of choice.

Freeing Stalemates in Relationships by the Resolution of Entity Attachments – Edith Fiore (Is.5)

by Edith Fiore, Ph.D.

Since before recorded time men have been healed of their complaints by having spirits removed from them by priests, shamans, healers, and through concerted prayer. Throughout history and across all cultural levels the belief in spirit possession as a cause of illness, physical and mental, as well as misfortune, has persisted. Now at the end of the twentieth century, respected therapists are openly using and examining techniques that purport to remove the spirits of the dead from living people. Because of these healers’ successes, they are being taken seriously by greater numbers of their peers, and therapists are learning and using these techniques in ever-increasing numbers.

In my clinical practice I have found that almost … Read the rest
