Our mind is basically divided into two main parts: Conscious
and Sub-conscious. The Conscious mind is the reasoning, thinking,
logical and creative mind that we use all the time when we are awake.
The Sub-conscious mind is a repository of all our experiences and all
our memories of all lifetimes. Every experience is saved in great
detail, including every sight, every sound, every smell, every feeling
and every thought that we ever have. This memory can never be destroyed
by any means whatsoever.
The sub-conscious mind is part
of the soul; hence it survives after death and stays with the soul,
taking with it every memory of that lifetime. The conscious mind dies
with the body, as it uses the physical brain.
Upon reincarnation, the soul
comes into a new body bringing the sub-conscious mind with it. Hence,
all memories of all lifetimes are brought forward. But these memories
also include impressions of traumas from past lifetimes which manifest
at various levels of our existence and cause problems in the current
life. The problems can be physical, mental, emotional illnesses as well
as blocks in relationships, business, financial and spiritual growth,
Past Life Regression allows us
to access these past life traumas, and thereby, address the current life
problems. Past Life Regression is a holistic therapy based on the
principle of cause and effect, also known as `karma`.
In other words, powerful
actions, thoughts, emotions and vows that are experienced in a past life
may manifest in the present in another form - i.e. allergies, phobias,
chronic illnesses, relationship problems, fears or simply a strong sense
of unease / unknown fears.
The famous psychologist Carl
Jung called it the `collective unconsciousness` and `universal memory`.
By using the method of Past Life
Regression the unconscious mind can go back in time and access the
origins of old patterns or emotions and enable release and healing. Past
Life Therapy can help clear emotional blocks bringing a greater sense
of inner peace. It can also unravel the deep mysteries that can lie
within and simply explain the sometimes inexplicable.
Past Life Regression does
require a belief in reincarnation and does not necessarily define a past
life. Past life experiences can be factually based or metaphors brought
to the surface by the sub-conscious mind to illustrate something in the
present. Whatever the experience, it is the lessons that can be learnt
and the healing process that comes from the regression that is
important, not whether or not it was a past life. Many people find that
the knowledge gained through Past Life Regression of their past lives
and experiences can be incredibly healing, providing a greater insight,
and awareness and deeper understanding into oneself.
Past Life Therapy involves
severing the bonds between past life traumas and present life problems
or symptoms. This is mainly done in one of the three ways:
Breaking the bonds of time.
Past Life Therapy is
most effective in case of:
Physical problems where the medical tests do not reveal the cause and
no traditional medical procedures work.
• Problems that the traditional medical world may consider
problems, like obsessive-compulsive behavior, which have no diagnosable
cause in the current life.
Fears & phobias that have no known origin in the current life.
• Relationship problems which are totally
• Spiritual likes
or dislikes (usually extreme cases).
• Weight reduction problems.
Cases of stammering or
stuttering are dealt with very effectively with regression using
hypnosis. In fact that is the only way of getting rid of the speech
problems for good. These cases always involve a trauma in childhood, in
the current life, where the child wanted to say something but was so
afraid that he could not talk. In these cases, we do what we call age
regression, which is going back to childhood in the current life.
Cases of asthma, which the
traditional medical world considers untreatable, are very easy to treat
totally. It usually takes about 4 to 5 therapy sessions to get rid of
asthma completely but the number of sessions can vary from case to case
as it depends on various factors.
The therapist needs to guide the
client through all the lives which have any significant connection with
the client`s presenting problem. Thereafter, for rescripting or
reframing to be performed, the client needs to be taken back to each of
those lives viewed. Therefore, the number of sessions depends on the
number of lives to be worked upon as well and a specific number cannot
be ascertained in advance.
Although there are many ways of
doing regression, the most effective way for therapy purposes is guiding
clients into trance through hypnosis and connecting them with their
sub-conscious memories. Using hypnosis, we have direct access to the
sub-conscious mind. This means any suggestion given under hypnosis goes
directly to the sub-conscious. Since the past life traumas are in the
sub-conscious, the therapy becomes very effective.
Clearing myths about
• No one
can be hypnotised against his will.
• Therapeutic hypnosis is not mind control or brainwashing.
• During trance, the client is not
immobilized. He is consciously alert and remains oriented as to person,
place and time. He can even hold a conversation in trance. After the
session, he has complete recall of his experience during trance.
• Hypnosis cannot cause anyone to do or say
anything against his will or that which contradicts his
• Past Life Regression
Therapy is the safest and only way of overcoming past lives traumas and
their manifestations. Traveling beyond the barriers of time and space,
connecting with past lives and viewing relatives and families of the
past doesn’t affect the current lifetime in any way. On the contrary, as
Dr. Brian Weiss reiterates as well, viewing the lives itself brings
about a certain relief and heals our minds and current life issues. In
his book, Reincarnation, Trudz Hardo relates many of his cases where the
recent past lives have been explored and found authentic.
Past Life Regression Therapy should be practiced with the
assistance of a qualified expert or therapist and should not be
attempted at home. While viewing past lives, a client can at times
experience abreactions (sub-conscious reactions) and may need skilled
help. Some of the clients begin to relive trauma of their past life
while viewing it and this is when they need to be guided to an
observation mode so that they do not suffer through it. However, reading
up on the right books, practicing yoga and meditation, keeping an open
mind and learning how to relax will go a long way in preparing to learn
about past lives.
Regression Therapy has been used
in the Western world for the past 25 years. There are thousands of
regression therapists around the world.
The medical world chooses to
disregard this therapy as they focus only on the physical body. A couple
of centuries ago, the medical world separated the body and the mind.
The doctors involved with the physical body are expected to work with
the body and the psychologists with the mind. However, even a typical
psychologist only works directly with the conscious mind, and has no
direct access to the sub-conscious. Hence, he cannot utilize this
extremely effective technique. However, a number of medical
practitioners, psychiatrists, and psychotherapists have taken this
training, and they find it extremely effective even when it is applied
in conjunction with their traditional techniques.
The World Congress on Regression
Therapy was held in New Delhi during March 2006 which was attended by
over 300 Regression Therapists from all over the World.
One of the cases I helped,
involved an 18 yrs. old student from Delhi, Dev Batra (case of severe skin
allergy) who suffered severe skin problem right since birth. His
skin was sensitive to UV light to the extent that it would start
itching, tearing & bleeding with even mild exposure to sunlight
& later would turn thick & rough. His condition even affected
his nature thus causing relationship problems besides affecting his
studies. He visited a number of skin specialists in India & abroad
with no results. Steroids further worsened the case. When I finally
regressed him to the source of the problem, he automatically went to the
past lives he had carried the problem from & with just a few
sessions, his problem was addressed completely. After viewing all the
lives he had brought on the condition from, we had to go back to each
one of them later to perform therapy. He is now leading a very normal
& successful life. Dev’s mother, Miti says “Past Life Regression
Therapy has given Dev a new life”. Dev is now pursuing BBA.
In another case – a young doctor
from Chandigarh, Amarpreet Duggal (name changed on request) (case of kidney stones, polycystic ovarian disease, fear of
driving, accidental death, men, marriage and losing loved ones)
was repeatedly raped in her current life during her childhood. She was
frightened of men & terrified with the thought of getting sexually
close to them. The emotional disturbance such as guilt she bore caused
her renal stones & polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD). Besides, she
suffered from fear of driving. She particularly feared of being hit by
heavy vehicles & thus losing her life. So, using Age Regression to
reframe her childhood helped her eliminate the emotion attached to her
childhood trauma. Also, Past Life Regression Therapy helped her
disconnect with the death scenes when in a couple of her previous life
times her soul had experienced accidental deaths. Even the sexual
disturbance, fear of men & also fear of losing her family did have
significant connection with memories she carried from a lifetime where
she was a princess. Their fort had suffered attack & the invaders
had killed her entire family in front of her. She was publicly raped
& left severely tortured. The mind remembers this, and since the
mind does not recognize time, in her current life the mind makes her
over cautious & very fearful. Releasing the negative cellular memory
during sessions helped her recover from PCOD, kidney stones besides all
her fears in mere 4 sessions. Amarpreet, now studying and practicing in
Australia, is involved in a relationship with a young handsome man and
looking forward to getting married soon. She is able to lead a very
happy, healthy & carefree life. She says “I feel I have been
I am mentioning histories of some more of
my cases where the clients have given me their permission.
3) Darayash Mistry, a high
profile Event Manager: (case of karma cleansing, pointing out link with birthmarks)
Darayash wanted to work on Karma
cleansing. When regressed to one of the lifetimes which had significant
connection with the current one, he observed herself (he was female in
that lifetime) working in a tea estate with her mother. Her mother was
bitten by a snake & died instantly. During the session, he went on
to clear the emotional baggages he had brought forward from that
lifetime. His mother in that lifetime is also his mother in the current
life. The interesting part due to which I choose to speak of this case
is that on sharing the story of the past life with his mother, his
mother revealed that she has 2 black birthmarks at the same place on her
leg where she was bitten in that lifetime. This confirms that
birthmarks are linked with episodes of our past lives.
4) Rita Sharma, an insurance
agent (case of insecurity, possessiveness and jealousy in marriage) was
very unhappy and stressed due to a friend’s closeness with her husband.
Since her husband knew the lady since her college days, Rita didn’t feel
it just to disturb their relationship but all the same couldn’t stop
feeling troubled by the closeness they shared. Therefore, she wanted to
be in control of her emotions so that she could deal with the situation
calmly and without getting affected at all.
Searching for the source of her
problem, her mind led her to two lives from which she had brought on the
In one, she was in Greece. Being
a young rebellious man who refused to follow the traditional rules laid
for the countrymen, he was exiled and therefore, had to leave the
country. His father was one of the elders called the rulers of the
country with whom he shared a very strong bond and therefore, separation
with him was very painful. After settling far away in another country,
he married a beautiful woman, had 3 children but died bearing resentment
for his father and much more for his mother who never bothered to
connect with him, leave alone calling him back. Not being able to
re-connect with the father and feeling bad for disappointing him, he
spent his entire life never being happy. The sorrow lingered on
throughout the lifetime. His father in that lifetime is her husband in
the current lifetime and mother, the husband’s friend.
In the other, she was a widow
living in an African tribe with a son and a daughter. In this lifetime
her brother (her current life husband) took care of her family. He
sacrificed getting married to bring up her family. She shared a very
strong, close bond with her brother and since he was their only
care-taker was insecure about sharing him with anyone else or letting
Post therapy, Rita has overcome
all the insecurity, jealousy, worry and anxiety and shares a healthy,
happy life enjoying pleasures of a blissful marital life with her
husband and a healthy bond with his friend. She is now at peace with
herself and both of them.
5) Jessie Lobo, a business woman
and exporter (case of fear of being alone and claustrophobia):
Jessie visited my clinic to get
rid of claustrophobia and fear of being alone. Her fear of being alone
kept her talking to a friend on phone even while she commuted for hours.
Claustrophobia in her case showed up typically while in darkness and
that was when she had the desire to run out in the open. She dreaded
being alone in closed lifts and detested being hugged by even her
Looking for the source of both
her fears, she got regressed back in time to another lifetime. She was
physically uncomfortable, a little short of breath and kept repeating “I
am tied up in a cloth sack outside a tent…….I can’t breathe……I’m going
to die here”. I immediately helped her switch from reliving to
observation mode as there is no need to make the client re-live and
suffer the trauma back again. She saw herself as a tall rustic woman in
Rajasthan in 1800s, dressed in a grey short kurta, long black ghagra and
a large dirty brown odhani as big as a bed-sheet, wearing leather and
metal juttis in her feet. Her husband was far away somewhere working
while she lived alone with her son. For a living, she washed and fed
cattle belonging to an Afghani Pathan tribe in return for which she was
given food to eat. The tribe had gold coins which were used in larger
trading. This lady’s son had stolen a gold coin or two and 3 tough tall
Pathans dressed in black salwaar kurta and turban had tied her up in a
sack and left her to die to punish her since her son was absconding. She
later died there with suffocation and heat.
After the very session I
remember her say “I feel a new me today ...... I feel like dancing and
singing. I feel so free”. Past Life Therapy helped her overcome the
trauma and fear of that lifetime and she now lives a healthy happy life
rid of any fear. The source of both claustrophobia and fear of being
alone was brought forward by this same lifetime which she could release
in mere one session.
Jessie identified two of the
Pathans, one is her ex-husband, Allwyn in the current life and the other
a friend. The son from that life is her daughter, Annabelle now.
6) Ameena Ali, an industrialist
(case of fear
of flying and driving):
Ameena feared being in a
speeding car or being aboard a plane specially during a bouncy flight.
While connecting with the root cause of her problem through regression,
images of a lifetime constantly kept flashing. She saw herself being
speeded in a car driven by her fiancé in France. During the session, she
began sweating and screaming to slow down however, she saw the car
crash and she died in the accident instantly although her fiancé
survived. Helping her overcome the trauma and also snapping connection
with the lifetime, has helped her completely recover from the fear.
She’s no longer frightened while traveling in long international flights
nor in the car.
7) Chetan Chavan, a MBA student
and businessman (case of stuttering and stammering):
Chetan Chavan contacted me to
help him get rid of stammering. Before he came to me, he had already
seen speech therapist apart from going for other forms of treatment
& had also undergone a surgery to no avail.
In my ability to take him to the
source of his problem, he got regressed into a couple of past lives
which had significant connection with his presenting problem. To give
you an example, in one of his past lives, he accidentally killed a
person under the heavy vehicle he was driving. When the villagers
gathered at the site & he was questioned, he was terrified & due
to the fright, couldn`t utter a word. He had more of such lives he had
carried this condition from & we worked on all of them with the help
of Past Life therapy. The few sessions that he had spent viewing such
lives itself had reduced stammering to an extent that even his
professors had been appreciating a change while he talked during
presentations in front of his whole class in college.
Chetan has now undergone the
therapy completely and is able to talk fluently without any stammering
or stuttering. He is currently pursuing MBA training and says “I am able
to talk freely and fluently in front of large gatherings. I feel very
proud when I am able to give my presentations and speak at length
without any traces of stammering at all”.
8) Sudipto Mukherjee, a retired
company director (curious to check past life relationships):
All that Sudipto Mukherjee was
looking at was a desire to find out the relationships he shared with a
few of his special friends. For example, he found one of his friends as
his cousin in a lifetime he was regressed into. As Dr. Brian Weiss
points out, the best part is that one benefits from viewing the lives
itself and in this case it helped better his relationships.
9) Ketty D’souza, a marketing
manager (case of Asthma):
Ketty, a young lady from Kerela,
suffered from Asthma. When she came to me, she was on inhalers
regularly and had to often inject doses of medicines intravenously. She
had brought on this condition from 3 past lifetimes. In one, she was
pushed into the river with a bolder when she died gasping for breath as
she didn’t know how to swim. In the other, she was made to die in the
concentration camp where she died of chocking. During the third lifetime
she viewed in connection with asthma, she was strangled to death by her
husband. Snapping the connection with such traumatic deaths during her
sessions & releasing the negative cellular memory helped her
completely recover from Asthma & she now leads a happy normal life
without any medication.
10) Minakshi Panjwani, an
architect (case of hydrobhobia):
Minakshi suffered from fear of
water and could never go swimming. She could never even be anywhere
close to an ocean shore. Once pushed into a friend’s swimming pool at a
party, she feared death. When regressed and connected with the source of
her fear, she saw herself drowning in a lifetime when their ship caught
fire and sank. In another lifetime, she viewed that she was a young
girl aboard a flight with her parents which crashed into the sea and
they all lost their lives. With the help of past life therapy, she was
able to work on eliminating the phobia. Minakshi is now very comfortable
swimming and enjoys the sport. She even went white water rafting during
her holiday to Dubai.
11) Tina Mittal, an executive
(case of an
accident prone life and fear of death)
Tina had given up her job and
had even stopped socializing with friends. She feared she would die soon
day in and out. She kept seeing flashes of her body lying dead
mutilated in an accident. She was a young girl who in her current life
had suffered an accident and serious leg injury left with several scars.
The source of both her problems lied in another lifetime where she saw
herself lying in a hospital bed with one leg put on traction and the
other one amputated. In spite of the amputation, she developed gangrene
around her hip and the poison
spread to the rest of body due to which she lost her life.
Tina had brought on a fragment
of her fears from another life as well where she was born a crippled and
was abandoned by her family. She spent the rest of her life in an
orphanage all lonely and suffering.
The fear of accidents harboured
in her mind created more accidents for her in her current life.
Uprooting the fear through a few sessions helped her overcome the
problem. Watching herself die in her previous lives helped her fear of
death fade off completely. Besides, her tryst with death in past lives
was a very overwhelming experience for her. She witnessed her soul leave
her body and re-uniting with her Higher Self in the Spirit World. Being
in The Light in the blissful world was a Divine experience.
She is very happy and a
different person ever since.
