Age/Time Regression – Lost something valuable and cannot find it? A woman had lost her wedding ring and could not find it anywhere. Under hypnosis she was taken back to the day she lost it. Her subconscious was able to retrace every step she made that day, and she remembered where she had put the ring (in this particular case it was in a pocket in her apron – she was baking at the time and removed her ring).

Past Life Regression – A patient of mine constantly over ate. When we did past life regression she visited a previous life where she (and her young kid) had died of starvation. After desensitizing her to this event, she no longer had an addiction for over eating.

Hypnobirthing – It is a traumatic experience for a baby to be born in a hospital; Mom is in pain and stressed, hospital lights glaring, etc. Imagine if Mom is in a serene state, caught up in the miracle of human birth. Baby is introduced into this world in a calm manner.

Relaxation/boredom – Life is tough. It’s even tougher if you cannot relax, or you are bored witless. Hypnotherapy is there to improve your life.

Age Regression

Age regression in therapy is also referred to as hypnotic age regression. This is a hypnosis technique utilized by hypnotherapists to help patients remember the perceptions and feelings caused by past events that have an effect on their present illness. Hypnotic age regression occurs when a person is hypnotized and is instructed to recall a past event or regress to an earlier age. The patient may then proceed to recall or relive events in his life. If the hypnotherapist suggests that the patient is of a certain age, the patient may begin to appear to talk, act, and think according to that age. This allows for the patient to reinterpret their current situation with new information and insights.

Every age regression session varies based on the hypnotherapist and patient.

The purpose of hypnotic age regression is to reframe the negative feelings and perceptions of the past to facilitate progress towards the patient's goals. It allows patients to find the cause of their current blocks and eliminate their past traumas. When patients are hypnotized, they are in an altered state that allows for their subconscious mind to be accessed. The subconscious mind holds the behaviors and habits that people exhibit to protect them. These behaviors and habits are repeated until they are not necessary any more. Hypnotic age regression allows for patients to reframe and purge their unnecessary behaviors.

Whilst psychotherapists such as Freud have given age regression a bad name, it is still a useful technique for activities like lost memory (e.g. lost keys, jewelry), and NLP techniques such as Timeline Therapy.

Past Life Regression

PAST LIFE REGRESSION is a valuable tool for therapy. This type of regression not only has the potential for allowing an individual to recall experiences of the past, but opens doors to deeper levels of the mind where communication takes place on a mental, emotional, physical or spiritual level.

 

What Is Past Life Regression?

It is a belief that a soul survives human death, to be re-born into a new body with renewed opportunity to learn life’s lessons. The technique used during PAST LIFE REGRESSION involves you being hypnotized to a fairly deep level, whilst the therapist asks you questions in order to guide you to uncover your identity and events of a past life.

 

Why Does it Work?

There are 3 theories:

  1. All memories are stored from all past life experiences up until the present. The subconscious mind is not limited by imposing boundaries of logic, time or space.
  2. We are multi-dimensional beings, living all past, present, and future lives simultaneously (the boundaries of time are a human limitation).
  3. The past life is a symbol of a subconscious desire, wish, or prompting of an action to bring about change in this life.

Other Interesting Aspects of PAST LIFE REGRESSION

  • Cell Memory: is all of the knowledge and memory of our billions of cells. They contain our soul’s experience in this lifetime and every other life we have lived. Our cells act in a very literal way to the memories of our past lives and can bring them to consciousness. By accessing cell memories we can rid ourselves of trauma, phobias, pain and relationship issues.
  • Destiny and Déjà Vu: Destiny is made up of a karmic force that leads to reincarnation of the soul. Déjà vu is the feeling that you have had an experience or visited that location before.
  • Akashic Records: A theosophical term referring to a ‘Universal Filing System’ which records every occurring thought, word and action. All lessons and deeds of the souls past, present and future are recorded in the subconscious mind and are used to determine each lifetime. Some indicate the Akashic records are similar to a cosmic, or collective, consciousness. The records have been referred to by different names including the Cosmic Mind, the Universal mind, the collective unconscious or the collective subconscious. Others think the Akashic records make clairvoyance and psychic perception possible.
  • Free Will: One of the basic principles of Karma suggests that everyone has the ability to choose their own path of existence. There is always a freedom of choice. A soul chooses their parents, environment and life lessons.
  • Xenoglossy: this is the ability to speak or write in a foreign or ancient language, under hypnosis, by a person who has no prior knowledge of the language.

The Karmic Laws

‘Karma’ is the Sanskrit word meaning ‘action’. It is a term often used in PAST LIFE REGRESSION work and describes the Law of Cause and Effect. The purpose of Karma is not a system of punishment, but instead a learning opportunity to gain wisdom of universal laws. For every action there is a reaction. It is your attitude that determines the positive and negative influence karma has on your life.

Law of Consequences – the financial, personal and professional conditions in a person’s life can be reversed in another lifetime.

Law of Cause and Effect – we become better human beings as a result of valuable lessons and experiences we learn from each life.

Law of the Golden Rule – do unto others as you wish them to do unto you.

How Can PAST LIFE REGRESSION Help Me?

PAST LIFE REGRESSION is a therapeutic tool used to understand and heal current symptoms of physical, mental and emotional issues. In past life therapy, as the mind heals the body, the body can heal the mind. Sometimes it is a matter of simply discovering the past origin of the issue. When the core issue is revealed and resolved, the symptoms will often disappear.

Many times the symptoms we feel are said to be ‘all in your head’ by a doctor. If there are no physiological or psychology reasons for the issue, then PAST LIFE REGRESSION would be a wonderful way to uncover cell memory of a past trauma.

Often a PAST LIFE REGRESSION can reveal the ‘root cause’ of a present symptom, injury or chronic illness. A fear of water could be related to a drowning in a past life. Birthmarks and deformities could be a point of entrance in the body at the time of death in a past life.

Eating Disorders

Anorexia and bulimia could be symptomatic of current emotional problems such as lack of self-worth. Past-life origination could come from rejection of a parent, partner or lover. The emotional impact of abandonment may manifest a desire to ‘waste away’ so that you are not a burden to anyone. Obesity can originate from a traumatic experience of malnutrition or starvation in a former life. A client will obsess over food so that they never have to feel the pain of hunger or starve to death again. Trauma (e.g. sexual assault) in a previous life might lead to obesity in order that you look less attractive and have less chance of it occurring again.

Addictions

Gratification by using drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, money, food, gambling, may come from deprivation or fear of loss in a previous life. A client may have an all-consuming to make sure they ‘have enough’ this time around. Addictions may also stem from a need to escape from reality in this life because in ‘times before’ the suffering was more than they could endure.

Depression

Some people feel ‘out of sorts’ without any identifiable cause for their condition. If in a past life you suffered a traumatic loss or an extremely unpleasant experience, you may have a sense of helplessness and despondency now.

Insecurity/Anxiety

Insecurity takes many forms with the most common being the ‘fear of commitment’. If in a past life you were abandoned, you may need a lot of affection. This often leads to a series of short term relationships or forces you to stay with abusive partners because you do not wish to be alone. Anxiety is often a deeply ingrained belief that there will never be enough food, water, shelter, air, love, medicine, etc.

Fears/Phobias

Fears are a ‘logical response’ to danger and it is a natural instinct for survival. Phobias involve an ‘irrational fear’ of something that does not present an immediate or logical danger. In most cases, these fears are symbolic of a general insecurity and anxiety concerning the future or mortality. Past life connection to fears/phobias could be in the form of drowning, burning, suffocating, falling or torture.

Childbirth (Hypnobirthing)

Hypnotherapy in childbirth refers to the use of hypnotherapy to assist in the birthing process. This practice, known as hypnobirthing, functions on the premise that most labor-related pain is the result of fear and tension, which can be diminished or anecdotally eliminated with hypnotherapy. Research into this practice has found reductions in pain during birthing, Hypnobirthing may also impact the duration of labor and reduces surgical interventions during delivery.
Hypnotherapy during childbirth is based on the theory that to experience an easy and comfortable birth, women need to have an understanding of the way in which the uterus functions naturally during normal childbirth when unencumbered by fear, along with the ill effects of the fear-tension-pain cycle on the birthing process. Birthing women and their support partners are taught non-pharmacological strategies, such as relaxation, meditation and visualization, that allow the body to birth normally without restrictions to assist in less painful, easier, more comfortable birthing.
Hypnosis is generally considered a controversial treatment. There have been studies refuting claims that hypnosis is effective in reducing or eliminating pain during childbirth. A 2004 research review found insufficient evidence to show that the technique is effective, and two 2012 Cochrane reviews found that there was insufficient evidence to determine whether hypnosis is effective in managing or treating pain in childbirth or postnatal depression.
However, there have been studies confirming the claims that, compared to general population figures, hypnosis and self-hypnosis during childbirth leads to:
• decreased average length of labor
• lower cesarean section rates
• decreased use of pain relief medication such as gas and epidurals
• increased ease and comfort of labor and birth (self-reported and observed)
• greater emotional satisfaction for mothers as a result of having their birthing partners informed, involved and supportive.
In addition to this, the majority of women experiencing hypnosis during childbirth in their second or subsequent births report feeling more in control, confident, relaxed and focused, and less fearful, than during their other birthing experiences.

Relaxation

A relaxation technique (also known as relaxation training) is any method, process, procedure, or activity that helps a person to relax; to attain a state of increased calmness; or otherwise reduce levels of pain, anxiety, stress or anger. Relaxation techniques are often employed as one element of a wider stress management program and can decrease muscle tension, lower the blood pressure and slow heart and breath rates, among other health benefits.

People respond to stress in different ways, namely, by becoming overwhelmed, depressed or both. Yoga, QiGong, Taiji, and Pranayama that includes deep breathing tend to calm people who are overwhelmed by stress, while rhythmic exercise improves the mental and physical health of those who are depressed. People who encounter both symptoms simultaneously, feeling depressed in some ways and overexcited in others, may do best by walking or performing yoga techniques that are focused on strength.

Restlessness/Boredom

Restlessness or Boredom is an emotional state experienced when an individual is left without anything in particular to do, and not interested in their surroundings.

There are three types of boredom, all of which involve problems of engagement of attention. These include times when we are prevented from engaging in wanted activity, when we are forced to engage in unwanted activity, or when we are simply unable for no apparent reason to maintain engagement in any activity or spectacle. Boredom proneness is a tendency to experience boredom of all types. This is typically assessed by the Boredom Proneness Scale. Recent research has found that boredom proneness is clearly and consistently associated with failures of attention. Boredom and its proneness are both theoretically and empirically linked to depression and similar symptoms. Nonetheless, boredom proneness has been found to be as strongly correlated with attentional lapses as with depression. Although boredom is often viewed as a trivial and mild irritant, proneness to boredom has been linked to a very diverse range of possible psychological, physical, educational, and social problems.

Boredom is a condition characterized by perception of one's environment as dull, tedious, and lacking in stimulation. This can result from leisure and a lack of aesthetic interests. Labor, however, and even art may be alienated and passive, or immersed in tedium. There is an inherent anxiety in boredom; people will expend considerable effort to prevent or remedy it, yet in many circumstances, it is accepted as suffering to be endured. Common passive ways to escape boredom are to sleep or to think creative thoughts (daydream). Typical active solutions consist in an intentional activity of some sort, often something new, as familiarity and repetition lead to the tedious.

Boredom also plays a role in existentialist thought. In contexts where one is confined, spatially or otherwise, boredom may be met with various religious activities, not because religion would want to associate itself with tedium, but rather, partly because boredom may be taken as the essential human condition, to which God, wisdom, or morality are the ultimate answers.
