This is a compilation of my comments on a discussion about past life regression. I think they are worth reposting here. I’ve spent several years studying and exploring this form of therapy. It can be a very powerful tool for healing. In addition to the practice, reading the works of these therapists has been earth-shattering in many ways. I’ve included some of Brian Weiss’ books (and Michael Newton’s books) in the book recommendations page (link is in the menu bar above).
I’ve done a lot of past life regression work with Brian Weiss’ video, and I recommend it to clients all the time! I’ve personally experienced incredible results, and I’ve seen it work for others as well.
For me, every experience of it was very different; and I found that asking specific questions beforehand (with the intention to heal those aspects) is most effective. I’ve seen past lives; I’ve seen repressed childhood memories surface; I’ve gotten messages from deceased family members; I’ve accessed spiritual realms; and I was once given a symbolic message that, with a little digging, uncovered a huge aspect of my childhood that I wasn’t aware of… In my experience, when used correctly, with the proper intentions, it’s a wonderful tool!
