Perinatal Traumas

18 Jul: Pre- and Perinatal Regression – Albert Marotta (Is.29)

by Albert J. Marotta MA, CHT


Hypnotic transpersonal regression is a valid expansion of successful therapeutic procedures in a multi dimensional reality. This article suggests that any trauma experienced in pre and perinatal periods (Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) can have life-long negative effects as reflected in research, case studies and personal experiences.

The goal of this article is to introduce just one of several different levels or dimensions found in hypnotic regression work and perhaps provoke some new thought.

Throughout history, in any field, the desire of a few to manipulate and control others is legendary. They have effectively employed guilt, shame, fear, intimidation, religion and budget manipulation for suppressing any new perspectives, thoughts or concepts while ignoring … Read the rest

01 Mar: The silence of the womb – Prenatal Death – Nicolette Lachmann (Is.28)

by Nicolette Lachmann, M.D. and Regression Therapist

Although many women have experienced the loss of a fetus or child during their pregnancy, it is a subject not many people are comfortable talking about. Death can be horrible. When you lose a child that hasn’t been born yet something else happens. Most of the time the mother is the only witness; she carried this child inside her womb. With this article the author hopes to widen awareness amongst her fellow therapists and other (para) medical professionals of the importance of recognizing this trauma. If you don’t ask about it, chances are they won’t tell. And that’s a shame because statistics show that 25% of all women have to deal with Read the rest

01 Dec: When a Fetus Dies Unborn – Alice Givens (Is.14)

by Alice Givens, Ph.D.

Alice Givens calls our attention to the importance of prenatal experiences from past lives. Although many therapists explore the prenatal experience of the present life, Givens finds that a trauma endured as a fetus in a past life, especially a prenatal death, may have equally powerful consequences. She discusses her findings and presents several cases in illustration.

I first learned about the soul that kept returning to the same mother while working with Malcomb. He came to see me because his business and family were falling apart. He said he worked all the time but nothing was effective. He fought with his business partners and his wife and nothing was going right. Everything he had … Read the rest

01 Dec: Soul Retrieval – Janet Cunningham (Is.12)

by Janet Cunningham, M.S.

Practitioners of past-life therapy and research often report a perceived empathic bond with their clients during their sessions. It is not all that unusual for a therapist to report knowing what a client was experiencing before s/he actually described it verbally. Nor is it unusual for a client to report feeling the presence of the therapist during the past-life experience. In this article, the author presents an interesting extension of this, in that she felt obliged to enter into the client’s experience. The description of what occurred leaves us with perhaps more questions than answers.

Past-life therapy has broadened over the years as a result of the pioneers (APRT members and researchers at the forefront … Read the rest

01 Mar: 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.

01 Mar: The Psyche and the Body: Partners in Healing – Barbara Findeisen (Is.3)

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

The mind-body dichotomy has been entrenched in Western thought for so long most medical doctors have felt little need to concern themselves with the psyches of their patients. Conversely, traditional psychotherapy has shown little concern with physical problems. Recently the popularity and effectiveness of body therapies have prompted the acceptance of a concept of partnership between body and mind and a realization that they are not separate entities.

The majority of my clients enter therapy for psychological reasons, only to discover that change in the psyche affects the body, also. Conversely, colleagues who practice physical therapies frequently tell me that body work effects emotional breakthroughs and psychological insights. The two modalities are emerging as … Read the rest
