Following DNA – Diba Ayten Yilmaz (Is.21)

by Diba Ayten Yilmaz Abstract As we speculate about much of the mechanics of the reincarnation process we often wonder and actively search out clues as to the how, when, where, and why we incarnate. It seems that an important aspect of this search and research is the acceptance of the scientifically inclined. Yilmaz presents one recently discovered method of tracing and linking an incarnate client with her past lives using her DNA. She gets help with this from two world renowned organizations that do not yet know they are providing this help: National Geographic and IBM. Introduction From the National Geographic Society (NGS) website: The National Geographic Society, IBM, geneticist Spencer Wells, and the Waitt Family Foundation have launched the Genographic Project, a five-year effort to understand the human journey—where we came from and how we got to where we live today. This unprecedented effort will map humanity’s genetic

Choosing Your Next Incarnation – Mary Lee LaBay (Is.21)

by Mary Lee LaBay, M.S., C.I. Abstract There is an assumption that we all choose our next incarnation. Another assumption is that we always choose, or have assistance in choosing, the best possible family and environment for the positive forward progression of our soul. In working with clients over the past 18 or so years both in past life regression and in life between life sessions, I have found that the methods used in choosing an incarnation as well as the suitability of that choice varies between individuals. Our state of being in the physical is closely reflective of the state of being in the astral. While we may gain some breadth of awareness and perspective, we do not become omniscient upon death. The way that a person makes decisions during their lifetime will be similar to how they make decisions between lifetimes. If choices are turned over to another

Treating ADD/ADHD With Past Life Regression Therapy – Saundra C. Blum (Is.21)

by Saundra C. Blum M.S., C.Ht., P.L.R.T. Abstract This article exemplifies two case studies that were originally misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD in both children. Both showed improvement with PLRT. One had a complete healing and the other a more subtle healing. It gives us an opportunity to rethink how many children have been treated with medication when diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. How many really have the over diagnosed syndrome or could they too have been acting out old patterns from past lifetimes? We need to have more scrutiny with these diagnoses to make sure these behaviors are not coming from something else. Case Study I: Nightmares and Acting Out at School In October of 2002 I received a call from a frantic mother. Her son (we will call Joe), six years old, had been having nightmares every night for the past few months. She said it was the same nightmare, about the

Alleviating Voices using Releasement Therapy – Eric Christopher (Is.21)

by Eric Christopher, M.S. Abstract Eric Christopher, M.S., has applied the techniques of entity Releasement Therapy, as taught by numerous professionals, to patients on a psychiatric unit who are hearing unwanted voices. He has observed that the disturbing voices are immediately eliminated in certain circumstances, offering great relief to the patient. Here is an account of his experiences employing this modality. He encourages any person or professional who works with people who hear unwanted voices to consider research with this efficient process. Exactly twenty years ago, Louise Ireland-Frey wrote an insightful 17 page article for the fall edition of the first volume of The Journal of Regression Therapy called “Clinical Depossession: Releasement of Attached Entities From Unsuspecting Hosts.” Twenty years later, I find myself writing an article to share my experiences in applying the techniques and insights of this healing modality while I’ve been working on an adult locked psychiatric

Honoring Pythagoras: Reincarnation Ideas in Classical Greece – Hans TenDam (Is.20)

by Hans TenDam  A doctoral thesis at Princeton University Press in 1948, documents carefully and scholarly that Greek reincarnation ideas came from no other than Pythagoras; not from his teacher Pherecydes, the Orphics, Egypt, the Celts, or the Thracians. And as two of the most important doctrines associated with metempsychosis appear first in Greece, and only then in India, any transmission would have rather been from Greece to India than the reverse. It is also likely that the Celts acquired the doctrine from the Greeks.  In the Pythagorean view, metempsychosis is an ethical development and memories of past lifetimes are possible. We can still live with that. Reincarnation or rather metempsychosis ideas were already known in classical Greece. Orphic and Pythagorean sources have been known. Originally, those ideas probably would have come from Egypt or India or both, and some have suggested that these ideas came from the Celts in

Regression Therapy Data and the Notion of Karma – Pavel S. Gyngazov (Is.20)

by Pavel S. Gyngazov, M.D. This article describes a manifestation of the law of Karma that the author encountered during one of his RT sessions. The manifestation described in the article was not a solitary occurrence of the kind. This particular case and other cases of like kind makes the author believe that a person is free in his choice and bears full responsibility; in both the present incarnation and in future incarnations. Regression therapy method, which is based upon the study of human past-life experience, has a wide variety of applications: psychotherapeutic correction of behavior, psychosomatic disease (inherited from previous lives) treatment, and harmonization of personality within its environment. The multivariate potential of patient treatment is in many ways determined by one extremely important principle, which is obviously manifesting itself at almost every Regression Therapy (RT) session—the patient’s unconscious brings to the surface incarnations in which problems correlate with

Past-Life Therapy, Astrology, and Quantum Physics: Case Studies – Dianne Seaman (Is.20)

by Dianne Seaman Astrology is a tool closely related to physics, for it is a language of energy and cyclical time. This symbolic and mathematical tool–linking both left and right brain functions–explores the mind in a space/time configuration and provides a window into different states and phases of consciousness. Astrology can assist us in exploring various dimensions of the soul by revealing threads of energy/of consciousness linking aspects of an individual’s multiple layers of identity across many incarnations, which intertwine to form the so called present life. Astrology can show the resonance between certain lifetimes–why the particular themes and issues come to the forefront of consciousness at a particular time in a person’s developmental cycle. As such, it is both an invaluable diagnostic tool as well as providing insights into our understanding of the multi-dimensional nature of the psyche and its existence across time and space. “They [children] had a

Bad Stomach or Karmic Pains? – Joseph Costa (Is.20)

by Joseph Costa PH.D. In this article Dr. Costa presents us with a case of current life events triggering karmic pains seeking relief. The client’s pains had been unrelenting for over a year before this healing work. After the regression presented here the pains were no longer present. Therapy was done over ten years ago and there has been no more pain since the therapy described here. A powerful business man was sent to me as he had symptoms of stomach area problems that medicine had failed to heal or affect in any way. The pains were so intense that his ability to function in work was stopped. He was suffering sleep deprivation as well. For months he had been observed by specialists in hospitals. In desperation he went through exploratory surgery, which disclosed nothing out of the ordinary. Convinced there was something stuck or left in his stomach area

Core Beliefs: Uncovering the Archaic and Past Lives Behind Them – Elaine Childs-Gowell (Is.20)

by Elaine Childs-Gowell, M.N., M.P.H., A.R.N.P., Ph.D., C.T.A. This paper describes the “Healing Rituals” known as the Self Care Contracts. These contracts serve to close the escape hatches (Holloway, 1973, Boyd and Boyd, 1980) which people use to further their core beliefs and script behaviors. The article defines Escape Hatches, and Self Care Contracts and describes how the process of “Accountability Work”, “The Think Chair”, or “Time Out” help therapy clients think through their core beliefs and how to challenge them therapeutically. For people whose socialization was inadequate or meager, the process assists clients to think about feelings, feel about thoughts, and order their thought processes around their limiting belief systems. It is an empowering intervention for thought disordered, and other clients, and much appreciated by those who engage in it. Introduction An article by Brook (1996) with regard to permission, reminded the present author that the use of Self

Reincarnation, Quantum Physics, and Spirituality – Todd Hayen (Is.20)

by Todd Hayen Reincarnation has never been taken very seriously by the scientific community due to the insistence of our current scientific model that all events in the natural world take place within the confines of the Newtonian paradigm. Quantum physics has changed all of that, as we are just beginning to see the physical world in an entirely different light. Several eminent scientists of today suggest that it is just possible we have been looking at the problem from the wrong perspective. From the world-view of quantum theory, a new model of reincarnation has been developing. Combining these theories with the idea that time and space may simply be a human construct, reincarnation becomes not only plausible, but a naturally occurring phenomenon. The concept of reincarnation has never fit well within the framework of classical Newtonian physics. From the materialist’s perspective of reducing matter to infinitesimal particles, limitations of

Unchained Memories – Constance S. Rodriguez (Is.19)

by Constance S. Rodriguez, Ph.D. This article reviews the possibility that the psyche travels through time and space landing in the exact “past life” to rework problems, issues or emotional blocks that may be hindering one’s soul growth. Dr. Rodriguez reviews the notion that state bound matrixes of energy live in an archetypal field made accessible in the paradigm of past lives, which she terms Holographic Journeying. This conveys a sense of one part (one life) affecting the whole rather than seeing lives as a linear string of embedded memories. In this informative excerpt, Dr. Rodriguez gives examples from her work with clients emphasizing the therapeutic value of this work. The universe is a dance of energies which vibrate at many frequencies. They ebb and flow, merge and part, form ripples, tides, currents, eddies, and whirlpools. They become units of all sizes, from atoms to stars, individual souls to cosmic

The Passionate Pilgrim & The Soul’s Journey – Elaine Childs Gowell (Is.19)

 Elaine Childs Gowell, Ph.D. How many of us have ever thought to compare a journey, such as a long air trip, to a shamanic journey or other rite of passage? In this article, Elaine Childs Gowell, Ph.D. relates her personal experiences during vacation journeys she has taken and points out the similarities of both journey types.    Introduction Welcome Pilgrim. So, you are passionately engaged in planning a pilgrimage. You are planning a trip; you are going on a tour, a Tourist. You are looking forward to “seeing” more of your past, to “seeing” at a higher level of consciousness. You have been saving up your money. You are going back to the old homestead, where you may be able to interview some of the old folks. You are on your way back to the country of your ethnic roots, or off to see some strange and exotic land which

Spirit Releasement Therapy – Jan Erik Sigdell (Is.19)

by Jan Erik Sigdell Sometimes, in the course of regression therapy, we discover that the client has an excarnate soul or even an entity attached to him (occasionally even more). It is important for a therapist to recognize such cases and have methods to deal with them. Here I will describe approaches that I have found helpful. Possession and “circumsession” In medieval literature about exorcism a discrimination is made between possession (Latin: possessio) and “circumsession” (Latin: circumsessio). In the case of possession, a soul—or rather an entity—wants to take over the body of the person and gain complete control over it. In the case of “circumsession” it influences the person who does not loose his sense of self. Cases of true possession are rare but “circumsession” seems to occur more often than many of us think. Soul entities  In this context, I refer to a “soul” as a being with

Past Life Exploration – Henry Leo Bolduc and Marjorie V. Reynolds (Is.19)

by Henry Leo Bolduc, C.Ht. and Marjorie V. Reynolds, M.Ed., C.Ht. The following script for working with regression is a combination of earlier scripts written by Henry and Marjorie individually. As with any script, it is meant to be adapted to individual clients. The first part, before formal trance work begins, could be the basis for a discussion to provide background information and some understanding of the work of regression.   Basic Script Introduction and Background Thank you for completing the Intake Form regarding your background information. You say here that…(refer to items listed). What else is important? (Have the client add any additional information). Thank you for signing permission. You state here that you would like to have this session in regression work to get background information related to the issue of…(To gain clarification of the issue discuss it in detail; sometimes there is an underlying issue).

Past Life Memories: Reality or Fantasy? – Esther Iseman (Is.19)

by Esther Iseman, Ph.D. Often, past life therapists confront the following situation: The client emerges from the altered state and says, “Was that real or a made up a story?” In response to this question, the author created an instrument, the purpose of which is to address the needs of these clients who express doubts about the reality of their memories. This instrument has the potential to provide a subtle suggestion, or “convincer,” that the client’s past life memories are, in fact, credible.  Introduction It is generally recognized that there is great potential for healing via past life therapy (Gerber, p. 399, Shealy, p. 35, Weiss, p. 23, and Woolger, p. 82). Regardless of the perception of reality of the memories, many clients appear to be troubled and/or perplexed as they return to the here-and-now. They are uncertain as to whether their past life memories are genuine. While we presume

My Journey through IARRT’s Training – Eric Christopher (Is.19)

by Eric Christopher, C.P.L.T. In this article, our first on IARRT training experiences, Eric Christopher shares some of his personal journey and how it has affected the course of his professional practice and private life. This is the first of, what we hope will be, many articles from our members relating their journey through IARRT training. My journey through IARRT’s training began only three years ago. I had just graduated from a Marriage and Family Therapy program. I did not have to be highly intuitive to notice how interested and enthusiastic I became while reading about the effectiveness of therapies that utilized the deeper levels of consciousness within a client. The first levels of IARRT’s training were indeed fascinating, yet challenging. It took practice both as a client and therapist before I began to feel comfortable with the Past Life Therapy process. Initially, it was not quite like all of

Regression Therapy: Harmonizing Effect – Pavel S. Gyngazov (Is.19)

by Pavel S. Gyngazov, M.D. The article describes a session of a particular kind of regression therapy. Its purpose is deduction of the patient from the state of depression caused by the loss of the close person. Living through the life in the last embodiment, through subsequent death and metamorphosis of the Soul after death expands the boundaries of experience of current life. This reliving also changes a system of values, produces a harmonizing effect for the soul and provides conditions for social rehabilitation of the person. I want to offer you an example of regression therapy, which visually illustrates the depth and force of the effect of the realized reincarnation on a person’s mentality. A woman morally and psychologically depressed after the tragic death of her husband with whom she had lived in a happy marriage for more than 20 years addressed me. Her complaints were a loss of

Flowers to the Rescue – Djuna Wojton (Is.19)

by Djuna Wojton Here we have Wojton illustrate how the energy of flower essences, the “plant signature”, can aid in Past Life Regression work. A brief background on flower essences and two examples of their use are included here. As a trained hypnotherapist, herbalist and shaman, I have incorporated the therapeutic qualities of plants in my past life therapy practice. I have been using flower essences as healing helpers since the mid-eighties with outstanding results. Flower essences can enhance the regression process. People who are very resistant or apprehensive find it easier to relax and be open to inner guidance, when they take a remedy before the regression. In group sessions, the essences act as an all-purpose helper to aid individuals access wisdom from past lives. People who were new to hypnosis or any form of relaxation technique found it easy to quiet their minds to experience a deeper reality

Astrology and Past Life Therapy – Bert Esser (Is.19)

by Bert Esser  I intend this article to be an example of the way in which we can combine the two disciplines: “past life therapy and astrology.” 1) On the one side, as we know, past life therapy makes use of an energy that is stored in our so-called cell memory system. Karma determines the direction of our successive reincarnations and the content of every new incarnation. 2) On the other side, we have astrology, which expresses our cosmic interdependence through the birth chart. The horoscope is the blue print of our capacities, abilities and the pattern of our psychic power. This builds up during previous lives, so we can consider the present horoscope as the last link of a bigger development through many lifetimes. I always compare one life, and its corresponding horoscope, with one shot in a long film of the individual’s whole existence. In this way, the
