Past-life Therapy

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 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

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

by Dianne Seaman Poitier

Abstract

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

by Bibiana Bistrich

Abstract

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:

31 Jan: In Search of the Mother Through Time: An Unusual Case of Healing Involving Past-Life Regression, Spirit Releasement, and the Love of a Mother – J. Mancini (Is.30)

by Joseph Mancini, Jr., Ph.D., CCHt

An exhausted mother comes to the hypnotherapist for help for her six-year-old son, who is beset with multiple physical symptoms and complains of something’s clinging to him at bedtime. The hypnotherapist suspects that the child is suffering from the consequences of an attached spirit, that is, a ghost who had not gone into the Light after death.  Though the hypnotherapist does not work with children, he intuits that the mother is somehow involved in the attachment.  And, indeed, she is; for when the hypnotized mother does a scan of the boy’s etheric body, she discovers that the spirit is another son, this one from a past-life, who has been looking for her for Read the rest

31 Dec: Combining the Fast Phobia Technique with Regression Therapy – Tulin Etyemez Schimberg (Is.30)

by Tulin Etyemez Schimberg

“Fast Phobia” technique of NLP is one of the useful tools which can be combined with regression therapy. Past life regression therapy is used to go to the sources of the phobia, moreover, the technique is used for the reframing of the problem. Richard Bandler is the creator of the technique.

“Fast Phobia” is a well-known NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) technique from Richard Bandler (Bandler & Grinder, 1979). It is also called “movie technique”. This technique reframes negative memories. I find this technique quite useful for reframing after past life regression, especially when phobias are involved.

We may define a phobia as an extreme or irrational fear or aversion to something. This article doesn’t discuss different types … Read the rest

31 Dec: Effectiveness of Past Life Therapy in the Treatment of Phobias – Bibiana Bistrich (Is.30)

by Bibiana Bistrich, MD and Juan Alberto Etcheverry, MD

This paper outlines the effectiveness of a transpersonal therapy method in the treatment of phobic patients, focusing on the long-term results and the sustainability of the effect. This is a pilot prospective analytic study in which the authors have documented the substantial benefits of past life regression therapy in a small sample of phobia cases, setting a starting point for other studies in order to achieve a more accurate projection in regard to the effectiveness of this therapeutic approach.

31 Mar: Seven Visions of Past-Life Therapy Practice in Chile – Viviana Zenteno (Is.27)

Introduction by Viviana Zenteno, M.D.

This article reflects an overview of the experiences of seven Chilean therapists, each from a different professional field, in their journey of learning and healing through past-life therapy (PLT). All of them demonstrate important changes that have evolved in their therapeutic practices and in their personal lives as a result. Even though their individual conclusions come from the perspective of their original professions, they all agree that regressive therapy can be used as a tool for global evolution as the training of therapists in PLT spreads to others throughout the world and the beneficial results gained becomes common knowledge.

[Ed. – this article serves to introduce an organization in a charming and insightful way … Read the rest

31 Mar: Crossed Past-life Memory Material, an Anomaly to the Cryptomnesia, Confabulation, Imagination and Fantasy Theory Advocated by Scientific Materialism – Serge Szmukler-Moncler (Is.27)

by Serge Szmukler-Moncler, D.D.S, Ph.D.

The production during hypnosis of psychic material foreign to the subject (PMFS) is a feature known as past-life memory material. Mainstream scientific authors advocating the scientific materialism paradigm explains it as the result of cryptomnesia, confabulation, imagination or fantasy. During regression hypnosis, an intriguing observation, named ‘crossed past-life memory’, has been reported in which 2 persons relate each a story that involves shared past-life memory. Amazingly, each one provides its own perspective of the tale that appears to be matching and complementary. The aim of this paper is to report on 3 cases of crossed PMFS and claim that the theory endorsed by scientific materialism does not provide a straightforward explanation to the feature Read the rest
