Past life regression therapy is meant to teach you more about yourself than you thought possible. We’ll show you what you can expect from your first session.
Did you know that 24 percent of American adults believe in reincarnation? Or, that past life regression therapy helps clients overcome trauma rooted in past-life memories? The Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique helps you heal your past so you can embrace your present.
Have you ever experienced the unexplainable? Perhaps, you’ve had a deep-seated feeling of deja vu? Or, the sense that when you meet somebody new, it’s as if you’ve known them before?
Or, maybe you have an irrational fear that’s totally unrelated to anything you’ve ever experienced in your life? Where do these bizarre impressions of memory come from? And what do you do when you think these memories are adversely affecting your life?
Read on to learn more about past life regression and how it can help you lead a better life now.
What is Past Life Regression Therapy?
A branch of hypnotherapy, past life regression therapy regresses clients back in time to one or more past lives. Why? This regression helps clients confront unresolved trauma or conflict so that they can move on.
By resolving trigger events from a past life, clients get relief from:
- crippling fears
- illogical behavior patterns
- self-destructive behaviors
- eating disorders
- and many more conditions
Many psychotherapists have turned to past life regression therapy. Why? For its ability to help clients overcome deep psychological trauma. It allows clients to quickly connect with buried traumas and issues.
Traditional psychotherapy treatments can take many months to produce results. But past life regression therapy clients see results within one to three sessions.
That makes it an appealing therapy that saves time and money. The sooner a practitioner finds the root cause of a client’s difficulty, the sooner that client can heal.
How Does It Differ from Other Forms of Therapy?
Past life regression therapy relies on a basic premise. Unresolved events from our past continue to affect us in the future.
To overcome these negative effects, we must recognize and work through the root cause. Only then, can we move on and take control of our lives. As Dr. Morris Netherton puts it, “Past lives therapy allows you to stop doing things to people because you have to and to start doing things with people because you want to.”
Getting to a root cause buried in the subconscious is not a belief unique to past life regression therapy. It’s a cornerstone theme of psychotherapy and many psychological theories, too. But here’s where differences emerge…
Traditional psychotherapies focus on traumas from this life. But past life regression practitioners go to the source. Even if this means regressing through multiple past lives.
Overcoming Past Traumas for a Brighter Future
Past traumas re-emerge when a current event or person triggers them. Then, you find yourself reacting to situations in a way that you can’t explain. That may even go against your personality or upbringing.
While you may feel confounded by these actions, a visceral urge drives you to proceed… Or, you may just feel completely out-of-control and bewildered.
Sadly, these uncharacteristic reactions can cause serious damage. We may end up engaging in self-destructive behavior or undermining our goals and hopes. We can see how futile all of this is and still remain unable to change our behaviors.
Interactions with other people often trigger these past feelings and associations. For example, have you ever met someone that you took an instant, unexplainable dislike towards? Or, perhaps someone else that you felt an immediate connection to — as if you’d known them before?
Psychotherapy and past life regression therapy both look to resolve baggage from the past. This baggage remains harmful in the present, and so it must get unpacked and processed.
But past life regression practitioners go much deeper. They take clients across planes of time and space to uncover long-buried traumas.
But What If I Don’t Believe in Past Lives?
You don’t actually have to believe in past lives to reap the benefits of past life regression therapy. In fact, this therapy can be just as healing for those who stick firmly to the belief of one life. But how is this possible?
The stories that emerge during past life regression therapy can be interpreted in many ways:
- historical fact
- metaphoric life lessons
- evidence of a collective consciousness
- undiscovered scientific phenomena
For those who prefer to see the revelations as symbolic, the message contains just as much power and clarity. The same goes for those who rationalize this therapy as a way to tap into a collective consciousness.
Perhaps someday in the near future, science will shed more light on the cause and effect. As Dr. Oz notes, “Imagine that existence is really a series of shower curtains, each of which is a dimension, and sometimes those dimensions just ever so daintily touch and when they touch, weird things happen.”
No matter how clients rationalize past life regression, the effects can’t be denied. Past life regression therapy clients see faster results than psychotherapy clients. And many trained and licensed psychotherapists now offer past life regression therapy, too.
But How Does It Work?
Past life regression therapy takes clients back to events causing them discomfort on a subconscious level. Practitioners refer to this root cause as the “original activating event.” But why is regression needed at all?
Your subconscious mind stores these memories. And you can’t access them with your conscious, waking mind.
To connect to your subconscious mind, you must be in a hyper-relaxed state. Regression puts you in this state in a practical, repeatable way.
How does a practitioner put a client into this relaxed state? A state where subconscious thoughts and feelings flow freely? Most past life regression practitioners use hypnosis.
Hypnosis leads the client into a gentle, meditative mood. Some practitioners supplement hypnosis with guided imagery and other relaxation techniques. These techniques all stem from traditional psychotherapy and represent ways to access subconscious memories.
So, what happens once the original activating event is discovered? A psychotherapist will work with you to bring conscious awareness to these targeted memories. Practitioners have a whole arsenal of tools to aid clients in overcoming emotional and traumatic barriers.
Other Reasons to Seek Past Life Regression
You don’t have to be in the throes of self-sabotaging behavior to seek help. And you don’t need to be waist-deep in past traumas either.
Curiosity is enough to spark a consultation. Past life regression therapy offers many benefits. It helps those looking for answers or greater self-understanding.
What’s more, past life regression therapy can uncover the past lifetimes that you’ve shared with your current loved ones. Therapy sessions that delve into these soul connections prove comforting for those mourning a loved one. They provide clients with reassurances that they will see each other again in futures yet to come.
If you led a past life filled with much happiness or success, basking in those memories can be very healing, too. You’ll enjoy the pleasure of re-experiencing the highlights of those forgotten times. And you’ll gain a confidence boost.
This type of session can help you cope with trying times in your current life.
Past life regression therapy can also assist you in getting in touch with your strengths and talents. By rediscovering past accomplishments and successes, you can carry them into your present. Delving into past lives can provide you with direction, purpose, and clarity.
Past Life Regression 101
Once you and your practitioner have laid the groundwork, you’ll begin the rest of the process. Regressions typically last from one-and-a-half to two hours.
Your practitioner will ask you to lie down or sit in a comfortable position. They’ll ask you to close your eyes before hypnosis begins. By closing your eyes, you minimize distractions.
Because this treatment requires hypnosis, you’ll pass into a light trance or heightened state of awareness. There’s no hocus-pocus to this. But it’s important to relax deeply and focus fully.
Only then will the practitioner be able to access your subconscious. But this doesn’t mean you’ll be unconscious or have no recollection of what happened. Most clients remember the voice of the practitioner and the topics discussed.
Your practitioner will take you back to the source of your fears, feelings, or problems through regression. Whether you prefer to see these revelations as paranormal or symbolic, you’ll gain a wealth of insights.
In one session, a practitioner may take you through one to three different lives. After the regression ends, you’ll discuss past memories that surfaced to gain greater insight and understanding.
Clients report different reactions to past life regression therapy. Some feel calm and relaxed afterward. Others feel disoriented or emotionally fatigued. It may take awhile to process what you’ve discovered, and a good practitioner will help you do this.
What to Look For
Interested in learning more about past life regression but not sure where to start? Begin by doing research to a find a qualified practitioner.
Psychotherapists must have a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a state license. But standards aren’t as rigorous for past life regression practitioners.
More specifically, Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) practitioners receive special training in past life regression and healing. Their education is based on the research and career of QHHT’s founder, Dolores Cannon.
QHHT practitioners are NOT therapists, but the special hypnotic technique often allows for past life regressions to come forward through the induction of the theta brainwave state for clients.
Additionally, via collaboration with a client’s higher self, clients are able to find their life’s purpose, experience instant relief from ailments and have a series of key questions answered that they have prepared for their higher self.
QHHT providers are called QHHT practitioners and go through a strict training protocol. QHHT practitioners receive certified designations to operate in complete alignment with the exact methods used by Dolores Cannon in her best selling series of books.
When searching for the right QHHT practitioner, carefully review these listings to see which practitioner you connect with. Each listing contains important information about the practitioner and their level of education.
These education designations let you know how much QHHT education each practitioner has received. And you can search by geographic location to find the closest practitioner to you.
QHHT practitioners cannot work remotely via Skype or telephone. So, make sure that you find a practitioner that you can visit in person.
The QHHT Advantage
Interested in learning more about past life regression? Curious to see how it might improve your life and relationships? When looking to experience a past life regression, do your research and always go with the tried and true.
QHHT was developed by Dolores Cannon over many decades of private practice. QHHT represents a powerful method for discovering all of the parts of you. Then, you can integrate these experiences and knowledge into your present.
No matter your background, religious beliefs, or cultural identity, QHHT practitioners can help you. A good practitioner enables you to access your subconscious and past experiences.
What You Need to Know Before You Go
Past life regression practitioners each have their own approach to sessions. But be prepared for longer treatments than standard one-hour psychotherapy sessions.
A Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) session can last five to six hours.
Be prepared to discuss the following:
- your current situation
- your family history
- your childhood
- your reasons for desiring a hypnosis session
Discuss any mental health issues you’ve experienced in the past, which medications you’re on, and etc. This conversation will help your practitioner to know you better to be able to ask better questions. It’ll also pave the way for your subconscious mind to enter a regression.
A skilled QHHT practitioner will help you unlock the many facets, feelings, and talents that make up the very essence of you. And a QHHT practitioner will help you understand the meaning of your life and how you relate to those closest to you.
As Samuel Sagan observed, “While performing the great majority of the actions in their life, people are totally unaware. We tend to go through our daily activities mechanically. In short, we are not living our lives, we are sleeping it.”
Don’t sleep through life. Actively live it. We can help.
