Beyond the Millennium – New Age or Brave New World? – Chet Snow (Is.28)

by Chet B. 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.

Spirit Release in Clinical Psychiatry – What Can We Learn? – Alan Sanderson (Is.27)

by Alan Sanderson. MD My title ‘Spirit Release in Clinical Psychiatry – What Can We Learn?’ will seem strange to most psychiatrists, because spirit is a taboo word in the secular, materialist culture in which we are so firmly embedded. I’ve chosen to speak about it because my clinical experience has taught me that spirit attachment is a reality and that release of troublesome spirits works wonders. This is an exciting development, with tremendous implications, not just for psychiatry, but for everyone. So please, while you reflect on this question, let the new ideas speak freely.   Meditation Please close your eyes And breathe, into the heart. Place in the heart one person you love. Now you’re in the presence of love. Each one of us is in the presence of love. We’re all in the presence of love, And that love will open our hearts to anything. Please open your eyes. Open is the operative

What can Regression Therapy do for Highly Sensitive Persons? – Marc Van Hecke (Is.27)

by Marc Van Hecke DO, BSc Abstract: Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) suffer from the many sensory stimuli that come into their system. Elaine Aron writes in her book “the Highly Sensitive Person” that 20 % of people are born with a highly sensitive nervous system and that’s why they suffer so much. Is this true? Or is hypersensitivity the result of trauma, occurred in early childhood, prenatal, or even has his roots in previous lives? Are the psychoenergetic residues of trauma the cause of a disturbance of the nervous system? This work tries, by focusing on the most sensitive sense of each individual, to regress the client and heal the trauma situation linked to the hypersensitivity. Ten HSP estimated the nuisance they had from their most sensitive sense on a VAS (visual analogue scale). They were submitted to two regressions in a period of two to three weeks. Two weeks

Seven Visions of Past-Life Therapy Practice in Chile – Viviana Zenteno (Is.27)

Introduction by Viviana Zenteno, M.D. This article reflects an overview of the experiences of seven Chilean therapists, each from a different professional field, in their journey of learning and healing through past-life therapy (PLT). All of them demonstrate important changes that have evolved in their therapeutic practices and in their personal lives as a result. Even though their individual conclusions come from the perspective of their original professions, they all agree that regressive therapy can be used as a tool for global evolution as the training of therapists in PLT spreads to others throughout the world and the beneficial results gained becomes common knowledge. [Ed. – this article serves to introduce an organization in a charming and insightful way that is in a country we don’t here much about and want to learn more.] The Transplants Nurse by Cecilia Tutera  Observing the changes and transformations in the transplanted patient, and

Quantum Reality and Transpersonal Therapy – Richard Stammler (Is.27)

By Richard Stammler, Ph.D. The theory of quantum physics has been around for nearly a century, although its principles have been used to measure our reality with unprecedented precision, the description of mass reality and personal reality is, seemingly, so bizarre that science has been slow to fully accept the implications. This is also true for transpersonal therapy. As the theory becomes increasingly mainstream in many disciplines, a more complete attempt is made to describe the theory and the impact on transpersonal therapy. “Well, let me quote from Newton about this, even though we’re talking quantum physics. Literally, I feel like a child at a sea shore, when it comes to seeing where quantum physics is pointing. I feel like we’re on the verge of a gigantic discovery—maybe the nature of God, maybe the nature of the human spirit. Something of that sort is going to emerge from this, because our normal notions—in fact the notions upon

Enkoimisis: The Healing Tradition in Ancient Greece – Athanasios N. Komianos (Is.27)

by Athanasios N. Komianos, BA, CHT, CRT More than three thousand years ago an impressive practice took place in the lands of the Ancient Greek world. A form of therapy unknown till then, and probably unprecedented, called Enkoimisis. Modern scholars accept that this kind of therapy should be considered the predecessor of modern psychotherapy. It seems there are elements that resemble, in a sense, today’s trance hypnotherapy. The Ancient World of Greece Since the time of written records there are notations of Enkoimisis  in the temples of the god of Medicine, Asklepios. One of the first such reports is in Homer’s Iliad (written in the 8th century B.C. but refers to the 13th century B.C.) in which Machaon and Podaleirios, the two sons of Asklepios, are the chief doctors of the Greek army. In the same work it discusses Manteis and the Oracles of Greece. Manteis were the seers or diviners who had the ability

Crossed Past-life Memory Material, an Anomaly to the Cryptomnesia, Confabulation, Imagination and Fantasy Theory Advocated by Scientific Materialism – Serge Szmukler-Moncler (Is.27)

by Serge Szmukler-Moncler, D.D.S, Ph.D. The production during hypnosis of psychic material foreign to the subject (PMFS) is a feature known as past-life memory material. Mainstream scientific authors advocating the scientific materialism paradigm explains it as the result of cryptomnesia, confabulation, imagination or fantasy. During regression hypnosis, an intriguing observation, named ‘crossed past-life memory’, has been reported in which 2 persons relate each a story that involves shared past-life memory. Amazingly, each one provides its own perspective of the tale that appears to be matching and complementary. The aim of this paper is to report on 3 cases of crossed PMFS and claim that the theory endorsed by scientific materialism does not provide a straightforward explanation to the feature of crossed past-life memory material, especially when present-day strangers are involved. Subsequently, it is proposed to consider the pattern of crossed PMFS an anomalous observation to that theory. Introduction Hypnosis is a phenomenon that recently attracted renewed

Soul Loss, a Model for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – Viviana Zenteno (Is.27)

by Viviana Zenteno, M.D. PTSD is a common psychiatric diagnosis. This article defines it and sketches its history. Both older and newer mainstream psychotherapy have recognized that trauma memories are stored differently from common memories, and require body awareness for release. In past-life therapy, rediscovering concepts from shamanic medicine, we interpret post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as soul loss, and healing this condition as soul recovery. Interestingly, there seem to be parallels between the physical structure of PTSD and the psychic structure of soul fragmentation. So regression therapy is enlarging mainstream psychology, not conflicting with it. PLT traces experiences to their source, releasing blocked energies, integrating the disconnected fragments of the soul, and converting the traumatic memory into a remembrance freed of painful connotations. PLT meets the requirement to work at all levels and, moreover, without limit of time and space. A systematic evaluation study of PLT would be of great value to corroborate the success that we see as therapists in our practice in treating this

Death, Transition, and the Spirit Realms: Insights from Past-Life Therapy and Tibetan Buddhism – Roger J. Woolger (Is.17)

Roger J. Woolger, Ph.D. Dr. Roger Woolger here presents the connections he has discovered between the theories of Tibetan Buddhism, as expressed in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, and what we find in past-life therapy. An important article that most past-life therapists (and others) will relate to.  This article is based on a lecture given at the November 6, 1998 Conference of The Association of Humanistic Psychology (Britain), held at Stoke Rochford Hall, Grantham, Lincolnshire. A shorter version is published in the Spring issue of Self and Society, Journal of the AHP (B).   He who dies before he dies, does not die when he dies. Abraham of Santa Clara.

Shamanism and Past-Life Therapy: Travel Beyond Space and Time – Linda Adler (Is.17)

Linda Adler, L.C.S.W. Linda Adler, L.C.S.W., APRT’s President from October 1997 to April 2000, has studied shamanism for many years and in many cultures. Here she draws on her extensive knowledge to discuss the similarities between PLT and shamanic practices and beliefs. Shamanism may be the most ancient and widespread mind/body healing method known to man. It spans thousands of years and reaches across continents. Almost none of the ancient cultures left written records, so we can only learn of their practices through those who remain living and are willing to share them with us. Shamans are the spiritual leaders of tribal indigenous people, ordinary people with extraordinary powers. They are the keepers of a phenomenal body of ancient techniques which they use to achieve and maintain well-being and healing for themselves and members of their communities. Shamanism essentially means to honor life ‑ all life. Although their practices are

Past-Life Therapy for People who Hallucinate Voices – Ronald van der Maesen (Is.17)

Ronald van der Maesen In last year’s Journal, Ron van der Maesen presented his important research findings on Past-Life Therapy for people with Tourette’s Syndrome. This year he is back, with a new study in which Past-Life Therapy was used in the treatment of people who hallucinate voices. Ron does not pick easy targets, and his results are doubly exciting for just that reason. Both of these conditions have been considered almost intractable by the medical community at large, requiring powerful medication to control, so Ron’s results open the door to gentler and perhaps better treatment for people suffering from these afflictions. Introduction Past-life therapy is a form of therapy in which psychological and psychosomatic problems are treated with a model which assumes that various lives of an individual are thematically linked. The basic assumption that people have many lives implicates many dying experiences and as many phases in between

Sacred Aspects in the Treatment of Trauma – Gail Carr Feldman (Is.13)

by Gail Carr Feldman Ph.D. In the following paper the author describes using past-life and spirit releasement therapies with clients who have been severely abused in childhood. Dr. Feldman refers to the work of Shengold and his concept of “soul murder” in discussing these clients and their courage in therapy; she also points out that with these clients, therapists are “called upon to be guardians of their souls.” Judith Herman (l992) reportedly said, “No one can face trauma alone.” The therapist is called upon to bear witness to a crime. I believe that no one can face recovering from trauma alone. The therapist is also called upon to bear witness to a healing. I believe that it is a sacred experience to be a participant in the healing process. After nearly thirty years as a psychotherapist, I realize that the healing process is the process of growth and any time

Transmundo Beings (TMB) in Regression Therapy – Richard Stammler (Is.26)

by Richard Stammler, Ph.D. Abstract The transpersonal therapist, familiar with past lives and future lives, finds in the extended regression experience an aspect which is revealed in the transpersonal therapeutic environment that is not of, or has not originated from, planet Earth, but somewhere else. The present study deals with this aspect of transpersonal therapy and is collectively called the transmundo experience or the transmundo being (TMB). There are two basic types of these non-Earth experiences, one appears to be a part of the extended self of the client and the other type is not. It is the part-of-self TMB experience that is often not extraordinary, fitting into the tapestry of other facets of the self and is the TMB aspect most in evidence in this study. Those normally considered not part of extended self, are the other TMB aspects represented by the Walk-in, the TMB attachment, and the classic

Love Materialized at the Taj Mahal Excerpt – Nancy L. Eubel (Is.26)

Nancy L. Eubel, MBA, MHt, QHHT, Rt Abstract In this article Nancy shares her experience of remembering both a past-life vow and a traumatic imprint while attending the 2nd World Congress on Regression Therapy in India. Both the vow and imprint were created in a former incarnation after the death of her husband and when she was subsequently thrown on his funeral pyre by other villagers. She leads you through the transformative process of clearing them beginning with an intuitive message she received about the impending death of her current-life husband. It continues with his subsequent passing and then his materializing in front of her while she was visiting the Taj Mahal with others attending the conference. During a group regression led by Hans TenDam on the last day of the World Congress she relived the funeral pyre experience and was guided in taking the necessary steps to release it.

Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing – Joanne DiMaggio (Is.26)

by Joanne DiMaggio Abstract In 2010-11, author and past life specialist, Joanne DiMaggio, conducted a research project combining past-life regression and a form of inspirational writing she calls Soul Writing. With the help of fifty volunteers, ranging in age from 23 to 81, DiMaggio regressed each to the past life that was having the most impact on them now. After the regression—but while they were still in an altered state of consciousness—she placed a pen in their hand and a journal on their lap and instructed them to ask their soul for information about that lifetime that eluded them in the regression. While they wrote, she also wrote, asking her Source for information she could share. The results were astonishing. In 2006, I enrolled in Atlantic University and began a three-year Masters in Transpersonal Studies program. Since I was a professional writer, I opted to follow the creative writing track

All Time is Now Even in the Hypnotherapist’s Office – Barbara Pomar (Is.26)

by Barbara Pomar Abstract Much has been written about time, all time is now in past life therapy. Dr. Pomar combines the two conflicting ideas into a coherent simultaneous theory. As quantum theory has found that there is only the now, (the present moment) Dr. Pomar has expanded the theories into a string of Nows. What is experienced in past-life recalls or experiences are layers of the present. Therefore it is possible to go to that point in time-space where the beginning, the original event happened, change a concept and have the present and future change almost immediately.  So many good philosophies can be derived out of these four words, All Time is Now. Yet, they can be counter-intuitive. I remember vividly the party last week and I am excited about my vacation in a couple of weeks. Does this mean I am still at the party, on my vacation

Curses, Oaths and Vows—and other Attachment Issues – Don Carlson (Is.26)

by Don Carlson Abstract In his work with spirit releasement, the author discovered that any curses, oaths, or vows spoken or thought by the clients seemed to bind them to others in an unending cycle of Karmic ties.  Through work with special prayers of forgiveness aimed at releasing these vows or oaths or curses, the client can be freed of the Karmic obligations.  Forgiveness is the key. Many aspects of past life therapy such as hauntings, spirit attachment, alien activities, and past life recall healings have been more than adequately investigated, reported upon, and their findings published in the many excellent books available for both the lay practitioners and the professionals engaged in past life work. One aspect of the work that has received little or no mention is the field of Curses, Oaths, and Vows. This was one of the major aspects that emerged as our work progressed. My

A Road Less Traveled – Albert J. Marotta (Is.26)

by Albert Marotta Abstract The author calls to the therapists/readers attention the importance of history and expanded thought in the therapeutic processes. He presents a series of timely suggestions based on research, experience and historical information encouraging the expansion of transpersonal regression therapy.   “For in the past, nothing is irretrievably lost, but everything irrevocably stored…” Victor Frankl The provocative information illustrated in this article distinctly alludes to parallels in ancient healing knowledge and techniques that have existed for thousands of years. Perhaps our present day knowledge and healings, (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are an attempt at playing catch-up with the timeless wisdom, which is limited by ego based observations, based on materialism and our five senses, of the great truths that extend beyond three dimensional thinking. There are many diverse views and techniques in the healing professions. I believe everyone has a piece of the whole. Here are

Measuring the Therapeutic Effects of Past-Life Regression – Heather S. Friedman Rivera (Is.25)

by Heather S. Friedman Rivera, R.N., J.D., Ph.D. Abstract Previous research on the healing benefits of past-life regression is mainly based on anecdotal and individual case studies. There is a need to collect and analyze a broad cross-section of data on past-life regression and therapeutic results. A study is being conducted to collect and analyze the beneficial outcomes and healing reported by past-life experiencers. For this study, a web-based survey was created and launched for wide exposure to a broad audience. To date, 180 confidential surveys from respondents of various ages, gender, religious upbringing, and experiences have been obtained and analyzed. Analysis revealed that there are measureable and consistent beneficial effects as a direct result of past-life regression. The analysis also revealed the major types of benefits, degrees, and demographic influencers. The most prevalent beneficial outcome reported thus far by respondents is that death no longer holds as much fear
