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 traditional schools of psychology is the view that so called past life memories are just some manifestation of subconscious processes where Freudian symbolism meets with Jungian archetypes. The often cliché

Baby Casus – Marion Boon (Is.31)

by Marion Boon Abstract A baby was born with active past life terrors. He comes to peace after his father works remotely for him. On June 3, 2020 the author conducted a remote session of Holographic Regression Therapy with a client who resides abroad. The client and I used either Zoom or Whatsapp to perform this remote session for his baby son.   On terminology and techniques: The term Holographic Regression Therapy was introduced in the early 1980’s by Hans ten Dam (2014). I prefer to use this term to describe the modality I used in this case. Regression therapy uses modified states of consciousness and when I refer to TRT or HRT (Transpersonal or Holographic Regression Therapy) I am referring to advanced techniques for inner child work, spirit releasement, soul fragmentation retrieval and integration, detective work on consequences and inner postulates, past life and inter-life explorations, primordial trauma, spiritual

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: 1. The recollection of the circumstances that triggered unconscious memories of past life conflicts, leading to the onset of the disease in this current life, and the identification of the feelings associated

Measuring the Effectiveness of Regression Therapy- Proposed Methodology and Case Studies to Measure Psychological Parameters. (Is.31)

by Gunjan Y. Trivedi and Riri Trivedi Abstract—The methodology includes measurements, each with their own benefits and limitations, across different levels: physiology, energy, emotions and the mind. Examples illustrate the use of the methodology in depression, loss of loved ones, anxiety, extreme anger, bodily pain, and extreme phobia. Each type of measurement is presented with guidelines to apply it in practical work. Additionally, the future implications of such an approach are explained.

The Level of Empathy and Engagement of the Client as a Significant Factor in Regression Therapy – Peter Gadjev (Is.31)

by Peter Gadjev Abstract In this study the author presents the importance of the level of the client’s involvement in the therapeutic process. He defines indicators for measuring the three levels of involvement: low, medium and high. He briefly describes the results of the study and then presents factors on the part of the client and approaches on the part of the therapist, through which the level of involvement is influenced. In sessions with a higher degree of client involvement, they report more successful results. Through the therapist’s ability to maintain a good level of involvement, the client increases their resources for a more successful therapeutic process. During my studies at the Institute of Regression Therapy in Sofia under the guidance of Mrs. Silvia Petkova, I noticed that empathy and engagement appear to be of great importance for improving the quality of the therapy. Definition of Concepts Empathy means compassion,

Research Report on the EARTh Special Interest Survey – Paula Fenn (Is.31)

by Paula Fenn An EARTh Research Committee Report Abstract—This Research Report provides an overview of intentions and findings associated with the EARTh Special Interest Survey. A survey launched in May 2017 by the EARTh Research Committee in order to determine problem areas specialized in by Regression Therapists, and other methods and techniques which they integrate within their practice of Regression Therapy. The survey had a global reach and responses were received from 105 therapists in 28 countries. The dominant countries represented were the USA and the Netherlands. Members from 27 Professional Bodies completed the survey. The dominant bodies represented were EARTh and the Spiritual Regression Therapy Association. 73% of the survey respondents were female, 27% were male. In answer to the survey question: “What problem areas are you specialized in working with?” a total of 868 answers were received across 52 categories, which is indicative of the wide range of

Therapist Survey of Client Experiences – David Graham (Is.31)

by David Graham Abstract This survey was designed to explore the effects of extra-terrestrial encounters on clients of therapists and also includes reports of encounters from the therapists themselves. To that extent it was promoted mainly amongst therapists. Both data and client comments were collected via a simple on-line survey, created using Googleforms. This were a total of forty submissions during a 12 month period that ended in December 2019. The survey asked questions that focus on background details of the client, details of the encounter itself and any perceived outcomes from the encounter and the therapeutic process. One of my motives for conducting this survey was to explore the extra-terrestrial encounters of the client as part of my interest in pre-birth agreements between souls. There was a wide range of responses, some appeared to support a proposition of a pre-birth agreement, some did not. The focus of the survey

The Online Intake Form – Athanasios Komianos (Is.31)

by Athanasios N. Komianos Abstract Advances in online technology have offered us an immense possibility to save precious therapeutic time and a better insight into the pathology of our clients. By asking them to submit their personal history through a facile, user friendly online form from the safety and comfort of their home, we will have an acceptable and decent profile long before they walk in our office. Another benefit of this procedure is that we are provided with a general overview of data that could make sense in our practice and contribute to make it even better and more effective. Introduction If you look at the mean average of individual sessions in regression therapy, you will see that people come to us up to three times at best which is a very low rate. This makes our first session and our intake interview the most crucial encounter with our

Hypnosis and the Alternate Consciousness Paradigm – Adam Crabtree (Is.31)

by Adam Crabtree Invited Address Delivered at the 101st Convention of the American Psychological Association Toronto, August 20, 1993 This morning I would like to talk with you about the evolution of a psychotherapeutic paradigm—by that I mean a way of looking at human behavior and the human mind that makes it possible to work therapeutically with people. It is a paradigm that is very familiar to us because it is behind the psychotherapy used by a very large segment of practitioners. According to this paradigm, our minds are divided. In one part, we figure things out and make decisions with awareness and reflection, and we can account for what we think and decide. In another part, we carry on mental activity that does not breach our consciousness. As a result, we experience feelings and impulses that baffle us because we remain unaware of the thinking behind them. According to

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 a very long time. She is able to help the spirit release her present son and find what he needs in the Light. The entire family soon experiences profound and lasting

An Essay on Emotions in Regression Therapy – Hans TenDam (Is.30)

by Hans TenDam Regression therapists deal with mind states: negative mind-sets that are recurrent and persistent, or positive mind-sets that are rare and elusive. If negative mind-sets are rare and elusive, or positive mind-sets are recurrent and persistent, people don’t need therapists. Our mind-sets are coloring and flavoring our experiences and our behavior through our emotions. They are focusing and structuring our experiences and our behavior by our mental programs. They influence our physical condition, and they are influenced by our physical condition. It is difficult to be happy or angry when we are weak. It is difficult to be curious when we are sleepy. How many different mind states are there? How many flavors are there? How many colors are there? There are as many colors as we can distinguish, but we can produce all of them with only six: red, yellow, green, cyan, blue and magenta. There are

Proxy Regression Therapy Grants Access to Healing for Contra-indicated Clients -Fisher, Tomlinson, Rogers (Is.30)

by Marit Fischer, Andy Tomlinson, and Bel Rogers A handful of regression therapists worldwide have been exploring, with positive results, a new therapeutic approach that grants contra-indicated clients access to the benefits of regression therapy. This alternative therapy, proxy regression, requires two things: a willing partner, and full permission granted to that person to access the higher self or subconscious of the one who is seeking therapy. The therapist then works directly with the proxy with the express intent of healing or helping the client. The applications of proxy regression are as different and numerous as the clients who may seek it out. Whether it’s for addiction, severe or terminal illness, mental or personality disorder, the deaf or mute, or even for children, proxy regression therapy can open a door to healing for those for whom it would otherwise not be an option. Marit Fischer, Bel Rogers, and Andy Tomlinson

Taking the Road Not Taken: How Parallel-Life Hypnotherapy Relieved a Client’s Decades-Old Pain – Joseph Mancini (Is.30)

by Joseph Mancini, Jr. Ph.D., CCHt. Each person at some time in his or her life wonders what would have happened had he or she made a different choice; such wonder can frequently turn into sadness, regret, frustration, and even abiding anger.  Through a brief examination of Robert Frost’s iconic poem, “The Road Not Taken,” the author suggests that the primary obstacles to visiting the road not taken are insufficient courage and a metaphysics that does not embrace the fact of parallel lives.  He then looks for a moment at the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics, which posits that every choice not made by an individual is in fact actualized in a parallel world that may or may not be accessible by the individual. This view is amplified by the metaphysics articulated by Seth, that ‘energy personality essence’ channeled by Jane Roberts for 21 years. This study culminates in

Hips and Horses – Heike Bettendorf (Is.30)

by Heike Bettendorf Abstract In this case the author explores a combination of body work with regression therapy and applies personification[1] and energy work to include animals. The client:   In April 2015 a client came to me for body training after a hip replacement, which had been done on March 2015. The 51-year-old woman had decided to recover from her operation on the island of Fuerteventura. She had been born with Perthes disease[2] (Orthoinfo, 2015). She was three years old when the diagnosis was made, and at first, she was not allowed to walk. At age four to five she had to wear an iron shell around the right leg and a five cm high special shoe on the left. At age seven all seemed OK. At the age of 13 she again had pain and the doctor prohibited further horse riding. Another doctor suggested an operation when she reached

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 of phobia. It gives steps of a very simple technique that can be used for any phobia. It is usually applied with phobias that have a known source. We find often a

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. Introduction According to our clinical experience, an increase of psychiatric pathologies in the general population was observed in the last few years. Higher stress levels created by the demands of life, changes in the environment and hygienic-dietary habits, among many others, might be the cause of such an increase. Phobias, defined as an anxiety disorder (American Psychiatry Association, 2013, p.189), are not

Using Depth Hypnosis to Treat Mood Disorders and Raise Well-Being: A Pilot Study (Is.30)

by Joanna Foote Adler, PsyD and Isa Gucciardi, PhD[1] Depth Hypnosis is a manualized integrative spiritual counseling model that combines elements of transpersonal psychology, hypnotherapy, earth-based wisdom, Buddhist psychology and mindfulness, energy medicine, and exposure therapy. The study examined in this paper provides preliminary efficacy research for the use of Depth Hypnosis in the treatment of the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety, as well as the effects of treatment on well-being. Data were gathered pre-, mid-, and post-treatment from subjects engaging in eight sessions of Depth Hypnosis, as well as from a non-randomized wait list control group. Seventy-three participants consented to the study, including 40 in the experimental group and 33 in the control group. The sample was predominately female (92.3%), with an average age of 37.92 years old (SD = 6.77). Treatment and control groups did not differ in terms of age or baseline symptoms,

Development of Life Quality by Past Life Regression Therapy together with an Integrated Psychological Approach (Is.29)

by Tayat Sriplung * and Thawatchai Krisanaprakornkit** Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine whether past-life regression therapy can lead to better quality of life, more profound belief about moral consciousness, and better psychological well-being. This quasi-experimental research included a control group designed to test these hypotheses. Each experimental participant underwent three past life regression sessions facilitated by two qualified regression therapists, plus seven days of life improvement practice between each session. Participants in the experimental group had better scores in quality of life than those in the control group. Within the experimental group, scores on moral consciousness as well as quality of life and psychological well-being improved and was statistically significant. The roles of past life experiences and lessons learned in past-life regression were also examined. Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) along with the use of an Integrated Psychology Approach consists of guiding the participants by using

Toward a Research Agenda for Regression Therapy – Hans TenDam (Is.29)

by Hans TenDam Abstract In this article the author discusses the requirements and issues involved with research in the regression field. Why would we do research—if at all? I can think of five general aims: 1. To satisfy our curiosity. 2. To improve our practice. 3. To improve our training programs. 4. To convince outsiders this is working, as good or better than many other modalities. 5. To convince outsiders that our clients have real experiences that give real solutions to real problems. This may imply—just by the way—that discarnate spirits do exist, that obsessive entities do exist, that reincarnation does exist, that extraterrestrial civilizations do exist, that superhuman presences do exist. Aim number 5 is a tall order. More than we can handle. Probably more than we should handle. Number 4 is much more down-to-earth, but will lead irrevocably to number 5. We could research regressions that are limited to the present
