ONGOING RESEARCH. Brain Wave States Underlying the Regression Process – Lucas/Snow (Is.2)

by Winafred Lucas and Chet Snow Research with a biofeedback device called the Mind Mirror established that various levels of brain activity—Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta—are active at all times. The Mind Mirror, which monitors the states on a small television screen, shows the proportions in which the states are experienced. There is no one state in which one experiences a past life, any more than there is one state in which dreaming occurs, or any other activity of consciousness. Preliminary work with the Mind Mirror suggests that regression recall takes place with a high amount of Theta, and an equally high amount of Delta is also present. Mind Mirror research suggests that Delta is actually a radar state. This may eventually tie in with Sheldrake’s conception of the Mind Field and prove to be the modality by which the individual tunes into stored memories of his other lifetimes. The

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 one hundred new patients), I realize that at least fifty percent of those who sought my help dropped out by the fifth session or so, before significant changes occurred. I

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 bone. The child screamed, and I knew that I had deliberately inflicted pain. I felt confused and humiliated. I didn’t like seeing myself as cruel. The confusion arose from the

Beyond the Millennium – New Age or Brave New World?-Chet Snow (Is.1)

by Chet Snow From time immemorial humanity has had a special fascination with knowledge of the future. Sages and seers across the ages have used many different rituals in an attempt to know what tomorrow would bring. A rare few have become enshrined as the great prophets of major world religions. Others, like Nostradamus, still confound us with arcane predictions which seem to match crucial events centuries later. Edgar Cayce, an American photographer who lived between 1877 and 1945, is among the most celebrated 20th century psychic predictors. Known widely as “The Sleeping Prophet,” he had phenomenal success at mental medical diagnosis and nontraditional therapy. Over 12,000 transcripts of his psychic readings, given while he slept in a self-hypnotic trance, have been preserved by his Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). Through this group’s efforts Cayce’s words have helped many thousands suffering from a wide variety of ailments worldwide. In

Time Travel – Henry Leo Bolduc (Is.1)

by Henry Leo Bolduc Time travel, or age regression, is a tool for better understanding one’s self, for obtaining greater insight into soul origins, life purposes, and skills. With greater self knowledge it is possible and relatively easy to put the past to work in building a brighter, more rewarding future. Many excellent books written by nationally known psychologists, counselors, therapists, and physicians who use past life research to discover the origins of patients’ fears, anxieties, habit patterns, and health problems, are now available. Past-life therapy is being used more every day and is becoming an innovative and important tool in the field of mind sciences. Even people who do not believe in past lives can achieve results and insight by experiencing the process of past-life therapy. Results do not require belief. Open minded inquiry is all that is necessary. Not all information proves to be applicable A subject may

Imaginal Techniques in Past-Life Therapy – Roger Woolger (Is.1)

by Roger Woolger The notion that physical and psychological illnesses may be derived from the psychic residues of events in previous lives is accepted in a great many non-western cultures. The opening lines of the classic Buddhist text, the Dhammapada, sums up this view succinctly: “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” It hardly need be added that in the Buddhist world view, earlier thoughts can most certainly belong to earlier incarnations. In the West, however, such an idea has never been seriously entertained by orthodox science or by the orthodox versions of Christianity and Judaism (McGregor, 1978 and Langley, 1967) in recent history. On the other hand fully articulated doctrines of karma and reincarnation are to be found among certain spiritualist groups (Kardec, 1972), in the Theosophist writings of H.P. Blavatsky and Alice P. Bailey, and more recently in the readings of trance medium,

Who Were You Before You Were You? Garret Oppenheim (Is.1)

by Garrett Oppenheim (1911-1995)* “When I started doing regressions with my own patients, I read all the literature I could find on the subject. By now I’ve read a considerable body of it. I’m impressed by the quantity of evidence that these books contain, particularly the evidence so painstakingly accumulated by Dr. Ian Stevenson. I am also impressed by the enormous difficulty of seeing through our biases when it comes to interpreting all this evidence. In reading a wide range of views on reincarnation, one can’t help but realize how individual belief systems can color interpretations and influence the way we gather evidence. Then where do I stand? While I know that we don’t have a final answer to the question of reincarnation—and that the final answers might make all our present beliefs look simplistic and childish—I do firmly believe that I’ve been around for a long time before slipping

Past-Life Therapy: Assumptions, Stages, and Progress – Ronald Wong Jue (Is.1)

by Ronald Wong Jue Behind every therapeutic system there are sets of assumptions and parameters from which therapists devise direction, treatment goals, and interpretation in the therapeutic process. The existing schools of therapy are classified according to differences in their fundamental assumptions, from which our major paradigms can be stated: (1) In the Reductionist paradigm all psychological phenomena are understood in terms of elemental factors, such as chemical, biological and physiological events. Within this paradigm consciousness is not the primary focus and is treated as an epiphenomenon. Modern allopathic medicine, psychiatry, behaviorism, and psychoanalysis are based on this paradigm. (2) The Humanistic paradigm is one which emphasizes and values the human experience without reducing it to components or regarding it as inferior to any other phenomena. Such renowned therapists as Rollo May, Erich Fromm, Carl Rogers, and Abraham Maslow rallied against the reductionist position and helped to establish the humanistic

Past-Life Therapy in Ongoing Psychotherapy – Clyde H. Reid (Is.1)

by Clyde H. Reid Marcia rushed into my office not long ago blurting out, “Oh, a lot has been happening since I saw you last week. I was walking down the street yesterday when I was suddenly in a past life—in broad daylight!” I was not greatly surprised at Marcia’s spontaneous regression. Such regressions are becoming more common in my experience. I believe the reason they are appearing is that we humans are now pushing back the boundaries of our consciousness, and the time boundary is one of the limits we are beginning to transcend. I see this as part of our evolution as we continue to emerge as humans. We are claiming more and more of ourselves, and the lives we have lived in the past are part of that unclaimed territory—until now. Marcia’s spontaneous regression was dramatic. She found herself on a Southern plantation as a slave woman.
