01 Dec: The Interplay Between the Inner and Outer Worlds – Dianne Seaman (Is.17)

Dianne Seaman, B.S., C.P.L.T.

Here Dianne Seaman considers the surprising elements of the external world that seem to conspire to help us heal. Drawing on her work with clients as well as a past-life experience of her own, she discusses the seemingly “chance” events that the web of life leads us to find and use. As she might say, we may not always know where we’re going, but the world will make sure we get there anyway.

01 Dec: Past/Future Lives and Brain Wave States: A Suggestion for Research – Paul L. Fleming (Is.13)

by Paul L. Fleming, M.S.

The following paper presents a suggestion for research that would examine correlations between past-life regressions and/or future life progressions and simultaneously-occurring brain electrical activity. In his approach the author extends the Mind Mirror research of Lucas, presented in the Journal, IV, 1, 1989, but widens the scope of that study. If you are interested in his idea, please write to Paul (he is in the APRT directory) or in care of the Journal.

This paper is prompted by two recent articles in the Journal, VII, 1, Clark (1993), and Goldberg (1993). These papers raise core issues challenging the credibility of past-life/future life therapy. The first issue is whether or not reported … Read the rest

01 Oct: “Your Problem May Come From Your Future”: A Case Study – Bruce Goldberg (Is.8)

by Bruce Goldberg, D.D.S., M.S.

The concept of progression hypnotherapy is discussed. Theoretical and clinical foundations are presented to illustrate the validity of guiding patients into future lifetimes through hypnosis to resolve self-defeating sequences.

Jung theorized that there are periods in which the past, present, and future merge in a kind of timeless state. He termed this phenomenon synchronicity. Ego analysts see the ability to relate past, present, and future appropriately as a function of the ego, termed integration (Pressman, 1969). It seems logical that some tasks necessitate clear separation of the time dimensions such as remembering (past), attending (present), and anticipating (future). Other tasks necessitate the binding of all three dimensions, such as planning or organizing; in these … Read the rest
