Past-life Therapy

01 Mar: Defining Professional Relationships In Past-Life Therapy – Ronald Wong Jue (Is.5)

Ronald Wong Jue, Ph.D.                                                                      

Dr. Jue suggests that the acceptance of past-life therapy as a legitimate therapeutic modality will depend not only on the gradual modification of society’s attitude but also upon the responsible definition of professional relationships and standards of training. The competent therapist must have a conceptual model of the past-life process and an adequate repertoire of clinical skills.

In the last decade past-life therapy has come out of the closet. This change has been due primarily to the efforts of the Association for Past-Life Research and Therapy as well as the effort of various therapist-authors who have been willing to share their experience in working with past-life material. But as a form of therapy, this new … Read the rest

03 Oct: ONGOING RESEARCH. An Exploratory Study Using Regression Therapy with the Homeless – Carlos Gris (Is.4)

by Carlos Gris, M.A.

In order to offer a model for regression research, the Journal is printing in full a proposal by Carlos Gris for exploring the potential of regression work with the homeless. His proposal has a theoretical grounding in the most innovative thinking of our time, out of which grow his hypotheses. A discussion of methods, measurement techniques, and population follows. The homeless are a difficult and sometimes almost intangible group, and many modifications may have to be made in the design, but it is a start. The findings may be negative—that is, psychodynamic techniques may work as well as regression therapy, or even better, but that, too, is a finding. Let us accompany Carlos sympathetically on … Read the rest

03 Oct: Opening The Way For Healing – Ernest Pecci (Is.4)

by Ernest Pecci

Often the emotional state of a patient closes doors to allopathic and other forms of healing. Whatever is attempted to relieve or reverse physical distress will then fail. Expression and healing of the emotions change the energy field of the patient so that help with healing can come through. There is no sudden “cure,” no miracle, but conventional ways of healing open up that are effective. This emotional reframing can take place on any level—in examining current relationships, in looking into childhood or birth distress, or in living through other lifetimes. In the latter case the reframing of the emotional situation in other lives makes possible a more effective intervention in this one.

21 Sep: Philosophical Assumptions Underlying Past-Life Therapy – Hazel Denning (Is.2)

by Hazel Denning

The effectiveness of past-life therapy grows out of its philosophical underpinnings as a plant grows out of rich and nourishing soil. To understand its potential for change and healing without grasping the significance of the underlying assumptions would be like trying to understand how psychoanalysis works without postulating the existence of unconscious motivation and psychic determinism. In a sense, past-life therapy is an extension of these principles: that which happens later depends on the groundwork set earlier with the enrichment of transpersonal and spiritual factors. Psychoanalysis subjected itself to grave limitations by its myopia regarding the spiritual nature of man. It limited itself by considering birth to be the cut-off point of psychic determinism. Past-life therapy remedies … Read the rest

03 Oct: Folk Healing Traditions and Past-Life Therapies – Stanley Krippner (Is.4)

by Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.                                                                                                               

The author describes four healing procedures that are shared by Western and native healing approaches: a world-view shared by practitioner and client, the personal qualities of the practitioner, client expectation, and variation in modalities of healing. He discusses the various sorts of karma associated with illness and the conviction of the folk-healer that body and mind are a unity and disease is a part of a larger energy field and cannot be treated in isolation.

Western and native healing procedures appear to agree on four essential healing principles. First, therapeutic communication between the practitioner and client is facilitated by a shared world view. Second, healing is enhanced by the personal qualities of the practitioner. Third, … Read the rest

01 Mar: Two Different Uses of Past-Life Report Therapy: Synopsis of a Master’s Thesis – Thelma Freedman (Is.3)

by Thelma B. Freedman

Two cases of past-life report therapy were closely examined in an attempt to test the hypothesis that this form of therapy can be effective with two very different types of presenting problems. The first was of a woman with a lifelong phobia for caterpillars; the second was of a dependent woman who suffered from severe attacks of anxiety and panic when confronted with a need to act independently. A number of sub-hypotheses were also tested. Based upon ten years of experience in past-life report therapy, I suspected that 1) no strong effect was necessary for successful outcome; 2) no therapist’s interpretation of reported events or themes was necessary as the reported events and themes would be … Read the rest

01 Mar: Comments On Healing – Norman Shealy (Is.3)

by C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

Past-Life Therapy: A Tool for Releasing the Subconscious

I began using past-life therapy in 1972 and consider it the single most important psychotherapeutic tool we have. Unfortunately, not every patient is open to considering it. After all, 35% of Americans are fundamentalists and reject everything, including themselves! Even those who are somewhat open to the possibility of past lives sometimes are hesitant to open what they consider a Pandora’s can of worms. Furthermore, it is somewhat time consuming but I believe that in general the benefits far outweigh the time involved and I know of no other tool that will yield such rapid progress. A single case report from my files may serve … Read the rest

03 Apr: Past-Life Therapy Reexamined – Edith Fiore (Is.1)

by Edith Fiore

Past-Life Therapy is an extremely effective treatment for the full range of problems that are brought to a mental health counselor’s office. Through the years, I have found that many physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual symptoms and conditions are either alleviated or totally eliminated, often after other therapies, including suggestive hypnosis, have failed. When it is allowed to work, it results in a permanent cure.

After using Past-Life Therapy exclusively for several years, I thought that this treatment resulted in a cure rate of greater than ninety percent. Now, eight years after conducting my first past life regression. I have lowered the figure substantially. Thinking back over my case load for the past year or so (approximately … 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
