What is the difference between Regression THERAPY and Past Life Regression?
Past Life Regression is when light hypnosis is used to enter into a past life – sometimes this can be directed to look at a life where, for example, a client’s phobia comes from or if they simply wanted to explore their life in Atlantis, say. This can offer them insights and may be a useful tool when working on an issue, like agoraphobia with the client’s therapist.
Regression Therapy is vastly different. Staying with the theme of Agoraphobia, there are a number of ways a Regression Therapy session may go. Hypnosis is not always necessary as we may enter the past life through “body work” where your body literally “shows” me the source of the unresolved energy. For example, the client who has a migraine every time she’s in an enclosed space. Her body may show me the time when she was tortured in an Iron Maiden during the Middle Ages and the unresolved energy of it manifests in my client’s life today as a migraine accompanied by panic when feeling trapped. We then work with the body to release the energy of that memory and resolve the issue there and then. This is a very quick and direct way of healing the body when it is holding energy from the past that needs resolving. *
There are times when we use light hypnosis to take us to the first time the client remembers feeling this way (e.g. panic and migraine in an enclosed space) – and we might be led to the aforementioned past life, or a time in childhood when the client was a newborn sleeping in a drawer and the drawer was shut. Perhaps this was a regular occurrence and seen as a way of settling the crying baby, but in actuality it was traumatising the baby. We would then do some inner child healing to transform this traumatic event and resolve any issues that may have arisen through childhood to the present day. We would also check whether there were any links leading to past lives that need resolving too. Sometimes the “echo” of a past event or even a past life still reverberates in our current life and we need to go to the source to heal it. So, having healed the effects in the current life of being shut in the drawer, we will then follow the “echo” to the source and end up at the Iron Maiden life where we will resolve the issue and any feelings of panic or powerlessness that may have arisen from that situation.
Knowing that there is always a lesson or a reason why things happen to us, we do transformation in the Spirit Realms or work with the Higher Self, sometimes looking at soul contracts or what it is that we were meant to learn from the situation. The client experiencing extreme helplessness in the Iron Maiden wanted to experience that as part of learning how to ‘step into her power’ and other lessons about power. In the Spirit Realms she met with the person who had her tortured and discovered it was her soul mate and current life husband. He had agreed to play this role for her so that she could learn those lessons about power. And as a result of this understanding, she was able to let go of the energy and forgive. As soon as the client let go of the energy she no longer experienced the panic and migraines. In this example it took one session, but for more complex issues there may be layers to resolve, but the client will feel better after each layer is transformed.
Any Regression Therapy session always finishes with healing and rebalancing of the client’s energy. We also ensure that the client is not carrying any energy that does not belong to them as this affects the physical and mental health as well.
This is the reason that we train for 2 years to do Regression Therapy and why a session can last up to 3 hours, hence the cost. One session may be enough or you may need more, but overall, it is quicker than counselling which can last for years.
