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.

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

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

by Albert J. Marotta MA, CHT Abstract 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 or denying new information in order to maintain the status quo. It took the medical profession 50 years to accept the concept of germs. Washing of hands was not a

Psychotherapeutic Services for Persons Who Claim UFO Experiences- Leo Sprinkle (Is.29)

by R. Leo Sprinkle∗ Introduction Psychotherapeutic services can be helpful to persons who are experiencing post traumatic stress disorder. Physiological and psychological stress reactions can occur from the effects of abandonment, abuse (corporal, emotional, and/or sexual), loss of relationship, rape, robbery, etc. If abused persons are given competent and compassionate assistance, then often they can learn to cope with their feelings of anger, anxiety, doubt, grief, guilt, pain, shame, etc. However, in our contemporary society, those persons who describe paranormal/psychic/spiritual crises, or emotional trauma from memories of possible past lives, often are faced with scoffing or skeptical reactions—not only from their friends and relatives, but sometimes from professional persons, including psychotherapists. And, if a person describes a UFO experience (including abduction by alien beings, out of body experience, near death experience, bodily marks from a medical examination, genital examination, past life memories, planetary visions, automatic writing or telepathic communication, and

Human and Non-Human Incarnations in Regression Therapy Sessions by Stopping the Internal Dialogue (Is.29)

by Pavel S.Gyngazov, MD Abstract The paper discusses the author’s techniques of inducing an altered state of consciousness during regression therapy sessions. Analyzing the alternation of human and non-human incarnations in the sessions with the same patient, the author demonstrates its accidental character and concludes that incarnations in all physical bodies are axiomatically equal in terms of experience gained. The author also notes that all non-human incarnations are more harmonious than human ones. A regression therapy session usually begins by inducing an altered state of consciousness in the patient. Of all techniques to facilitate this state, I prefer stopping the internal dialogue, which can be briefly described in the following way: patients focus their eyes on what they see behind their closed eyelids to concentrate on some emotionally uncolored sensation. Stopping the continuous internal dialogue opens the way to the hidden depths of the unconscious to gradually transfer its information

Research Study: What Does Not Work in Regression Therapy – Paula Fenn (Is.29)

by Paula Fenn an EARTh Research Committee Report Abstract This Research Report conveys a range of findings determined from a research study conducted with 15 regression therapists who were dominantly members of EARTh (80% EARTh, 20% non-EARTh). The topic of the study was, ‘What Does Not Work in Regression Therapy’ and the data was collected via questionnaires. The intention of this study was to generate data on this particular topic which would contribute to the field of knowledge within regression therapy also creating a reflective awareness about practice. The findings were analyzed using simplified versions of thematic and content analysis. This methodological approach was adopted to structure the data into meaningful themes of problematic areas within which the study respondents had experienced difficulties either as practitioners of Regression Therapy and/or clients. The data communicated by the participants offered rich and meaningful content and allowed for a purposeful analysis which, indeed,

Future of Regression Therapy – Some Personal Views – Andy Tomlinson (Is.29)

by Andy Tomlinson Abstract Andy has been a Regression Therapist for over twenty years and is an international trainer for the Past Life Regression Academy and author of three books on regression therapy. He shares his thoughts and experiences about changes in regression therapy and the opportunities that are becoming available in the future includingvworking with the new vibrational energies coming into the planet. Introduction I remember when I was doing my four-year psychotherapy training in the 90s being told there was no need to go to the source of a client’s problem to resolve it, and a past life was dismissed as simply a metaphor. I was told hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) were the future of healing and any mention of a spiritual aspect in therapy was met by blank looks. I was introduced to regression therapy by the pioneer Roger Woolger who taught the opposite of what

Conversation with Disease or Affected Organs – Neeta Sharma Kumar(Is.28)

by Neeta Sharma Kumar Conversation with disease or the affected organs (CWD) is an evolutionary approach to regression and past life regression therapy. This regression technique addresses the disease directly and precisely, thus reducing the number of sessions needed for healing processes. It also provides important insights into the cause and remedy of disease and illness. The author has presented a paper on this technique and conducted her workshop at World Congress for Regression Therapy 5 in Porto, Portugal. The Genesis In the author’s view all living things are made up of cells. Each cell is conscious and has ability to communicate. These cells are miniature humans and have all the cellular organelles which are equivalent to organs and tissues in a human body. The cells are in vibratory motion. The vibrating cells of any living being can get affected by various factors like infections, stress, temperature, emotions, belief system

Eleusinian Mysteries and Regression Therapy: Relating the possible benefits of ancient initiation experiences to modern regression practices – Athanasios Komianos (Is.28)

by Athanasios Komianos, B.A., CHT, CRT Two and a half thousand years ago I would have been put to death by any Greek city state for publishing this paper. Releasing, publishing, or revealing the truths of the mysteries to the uninitiated, faced the ultimate of penalties, namely that of death. Disclosing of the content of the Eleusinian mysteries was a disgraceful act and was unaccepted even in the democratic state of Athens. This is an attempt to break this old tradition and the code of conduct the initiates held and reveal what was taking place in one of the most important yearly initiation practices witnessed in human history. I do so to assert that today’s regression therapists did not ‘discover the wheel’ but that through their therapeutic approach, arrive through a different route, to a somewhat similar result of awakening their clients to spiritual realms. I am the son of

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 a miscarriage and that number climbs if you take into account the miscarriages that occur before they are even aware they are pregnant. An additional one in five pregnancies end in an abortion, which carries

A New European Case of the Reincarnation Type – Dieter Hassler (Is.28)

by Dieter Hassler, Dipl.-Ing. TH * When selection is restricted to solved cases not taking place in the same family, there remain only a very small number of cases of the reincarnation type (CORT) that have been reported for Europe. The case described in this paper belongs formally to this rare category and consequently deserves recording. A number of features of the case are described: a premonition experienced by the subject’s mother; three announcing dreams and their accuracy; the subject’s specific behavior, especially that relating to the opposite sex; a specific ailment affecting the subject; the subject’s special skills; and two incidents of a psychokinetic or poltergeist nature experienced by the previous personality’s mother after his death. Additionally, the case is rendered particularly unusual because it involves a chance encounter between the subject’s mother and the previous personality at the moment of the latter’s death, suggesting that the case could

Biased Evaluations of Regression Experiences: How reincarnation disbelievers subjectively interpret data – Jan Erik Sigdell (Is.28)

by Jan Erik Sigdell, Ph.D. Several cases of past-life regression experiences have been investigated by various authors, some of them in a rather biased way. The apparent intent was to find errors and doubtful contents that could disprove the reality of the experience and classify it as cryptomnesia or even fantasy. A few such cases are reevaluated and other kinds of errors exposed, amounting to false conclusions, inadequate reasoning and improper analysis. The cases reviewed are the Matthew case of Jonathan Venn, the O’Malley and Dick Wonchalk cases of Edwin Zolik and the Dorothy case of Reima Kampman. The tendentious way of reasoning in the evaluation of these cases is based on the preconceived idea that reincarnation is impossible and, therefore, eliminates the reincarnation hypothesis. A balanced and unbiased evaluation has to consider both views: seeking an explanation under the hypothesis of reincarnation as well as under the hypothesis that

Brain Research, Meditation and Regression – Hans TenDam (Is.28)

by Hans TenDam, MA, CRT The author discusses the research into the neurological correlates of meditation practices. There seem to be two general types of meditation, each with its own neurological signature. These are compared to regression therapy, which is hypothesized to be a third type. During meditation brain activity changes: in frequency, in location, in coherence. Meditation practices of the concentration-type eliminate all mental content, emptying the mind of everything besides the concentrating mind itself. Meditation practices of the mindfulness-type stay with the actual moment and all that entails, inside and outside. These practices focus on or contemplate what is present, while being as calm and complete as possible. Regression seems a third road, though the results may be comparable. Meditation is attentiveness training. In regression we don’t train attentiveness; we induce a natural flow of awareness from experiencing a problem, discovering its source, and flowing towards its solution. Regression

The Potency of Regression Psychotherapy; illustrated with examples of sexual trauma – Vitor Rodrigues (Is.28)

by Vitor Rodrigues, Ph.D. Abstract This article presents a scientific and clinical discussion of how memory is fundamental to our concepts, our experience and the workings of our mind, to explain – for readers concerned with possessing a body and a mind – how and why regression therapy works. After defining regression therapy, this article follows with a general perspective on how it is done, what are its pitfalls, and how to avoid them. It presents a theoretical perspective on how and why it works, and why it can overcome criticism based on studies about how memory can be biased, can be distorted and can be fabricated. It is a well-established fact that trauma produces powerful behavioral consequences along with strong and very emotional memories. We discuss brain mechanisms of stress-related effects, research on flashbulb memories, and how research shows that memories may be forgotten at the conscious and rational level,
