01 Mar: Post-Accident Trauma Release: Release of Body Trauma From Current and Past-Life Traumas -Paul Hansen (Is.3)

by Paul Hansen, Ph.D.

Patients occasionally appear in a psychotherapy practice who are suffering the residual effects of accidents or other body trauma that occurred in a previous period of their lives. According to medical feedback, the body has healed, or should have healed, but for some reason it has not yet released the memory of the event. Such patients typically have chronic pain or strange body reactions and are frequently referred for psychotherapy to deal with the somatic complaint. They “know” that there is something the matter with their bodies, even though most practitioners cannot find or treat the problem. It was in an effort to understand and treat this phenomenon that the technique of post-accident trauma release … Read the rest

21 Sep: ONGOING RESEARCH. Substance Addiction: Searching for Causes – Joseph Lucas (Is.2)

by Joseph Lucas

Alcohol and drug addictions are the most pervasive public health problems on the American scene today and rank only slightly below heart disease and cancer as killers and disablers. They contribute to escalating crime rates, to business and industrial inefficiencies and waste, to family turmoil and relationship problems, and to accidents at home, in the workplace, and on streets and highways. An ongoing research project called ADDICTO/KARMA has been designed to expiate possible causes for addiction through the use of regressive hypnosis.

Subjects for the project are volunteer alcohol and/or drug addicts who receive regression hypnotherapy in exchange for a written consent to tape sessions. A record is kept of pertinent factors regarding each volunteer’s addiction problems … Read the rest

21 Sep: Clinical Depossession: Releasement of Attached Entities From Unsuspecting Hosts – Louise Ireland-Frey (Is.2)

by Louise Ireland-Frey

Through the ages the belief has persisted in many cultures that disembodied spirits or psyches can enter and take possession of a living person’s body and dispossess that person’s mind. In the Catholic priesthood the occurrence of possession is taken for granted and priests are taught how to exorcise the invading spirits.

In modem times more and more therapists, especially hypnotherapists, are turning to this once common assumption that discarnate entities can and often do invade living persons. Sometimes this change in therapists’ attitudes is due to the spontaneous complaints of clients and sometimes to the suspected presence of an invading entity from various clues presented by the client, who himself may be entirely unsuspecting.… Read the rest

21 Sep: Humanistic Considerations in Regression Therapy – Edward Reynolds (Is.2)

by Edward Reynolds

The humanistic approach to therapy, as developed by Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow, shifted the focus in the therapeutic process from the patient as an object to be “fixed,” to the relationship between therapist and patient as a powerful agent in producing therapeutic results. Nearly half the research in psychotherapy and thirty-five years of observing and documenting the process, ground these humanist assumptions. In a new modality such as regression therapy where the dominant legacy comes from an authoritarian approach, namely, hypnotic induction, it is important that the gains in psychotherapy as a total field are not overlooked or lost.

In every stage of regression work there is a choice between the non-authoritarian humanistic approach and authoritarian … Read the rest

21 Sep: Past-Life Therapy: The Experiences of Twenty-Six Therapists – Helen Wambach (Is.2)

by Helen Wambach

Introductory Note:

Helen Wambach became famous because her pioneering spirit and indomitable curiosity about what lies behind everyday life problems led her to continually explore ahead, opening new windows on truths of the human condition. This survey, conducted among her peers, demonstrates once again the debt we owe her and our duty to continue to investigate past lives and similar phenomena concerning human consciousness at the same high levels of originality, integrity, and scientific method.

 It has been my privilege to have worked intimately with Dr. Wambach for two years and to have enjoyed her trust and affection. In adapting and presenting this article to our mutual colleagues and peers I feel I am repaying a small Read the rest

03 Apr: Past-Life Therapy and Arthritis – Dree Miller Dunlap (Is.1)

by Dree Miller Dunlap

While participating in a past-life training session with Dr. Edith Fiore, I was regressed to try to find out why I have arthritis. I have had various minor attacks of arthritis since my early twenties and at the age of thirty-two have developed gout—another form of arthritis. I seem to be particularly affected in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands.

As the regression took place I found myself as a male sixteenth century Italian physician. I was treating a young girl (about eight years old) who had broken her arm at the elbow. It was necessary to put the bones back in place to set the arm. I violently twisted the child’s arm. Bone grated against … Read the rest

03 Apr: Beyond the Millennium – New Age or Brave New World?-Chet Snow (Is.1)

by Chet Snow

From time immemorial humanity has had a special fascination with knowledge of the future. Sages and seers across the ages have used many different rituals in an attempt to know what tomorrow would bring. A rare few have become enshrined as the great prophets of major world religions. Others, like Nostradamus, still confound us with arcane predictions which seem to match crucial events centuries later.

Edgar Cayce, an American photographer who lived between 1877 and 1945, is among the most celebrated 20th century psychic predictors. Known widely as “The Sleeping Prophet,” he had phenomenal success at mental medical diagnosis and nontraditional therapy. Over 12,000 transcripts of his psychic readings, given while he slept in a self-hypnotic trance, … Read the rest

03 Apr: Past-Life Therapy in Ongoing Psychotherapy – Clyde H. Reid (Is.1)

by Clyde H. Reid

Marcia rushed into my office not long ago blurting out, “Oh, a lot has been happening since I saw you last week. I was walking down the street yesterday when I was suddenly in a past life—in broad daylight!”

I was not greatly surprised at Marcia’s spontaneous regression. Such regressions are becoming more common in my experience. I believe the reason they are appearing is that we humans are now pushing back the boundaries of our consciousness, and the time boundary is one of the limits we are beginning to transcend. I see this as part of our evolution as we continue to emerge as humans. We are claiming more and more of ourselves, and the … Read the rest

03 Apr: Past-Life Therapy: Assumptions, Stages, and Progress – Ronald Wong Jue (Is.1)

by Ronald Wong Jue

Behind every therapeutic system there are sets of assumptions and parameters from which therapists devise direction, treatment goals, and interpretation in the therapeutic process. The existing schools of therapy are classified according to differences in their fundamental assumptions, from which our major paradigms can be stated:

(1) In the Reductionist paradigm all psychological phenomena are understood in terms of elemental factors, such as chemical, biological and physiological events. Within this paradigm consciousness is not the primary focus and is treated as an epiphenomenon. Modern allopathic medicine, psychiatry, behaviorism, and psychoanalysis are based on this paradigm.

(2) The Humanistic paradigm is one which emphasizes and values the human experience without reducing it to components or regarding it … Read the rest
