Past Life Regression

Past life Regression (PLR)

Past Life Regression is a gentle form of hypnotherapy which takes an individual back through time to
their previous lives or incarnations by accessing memories and experiences that are normally hidden
in their subconscious mind. Life today is so busy and so ‘noisy’ that these memories are usually
concealed beneath the noise of everyday thoughts. A PLR session guides you out of the noise and
into a deeply quiet and peaceful state where it’s far easier to locate the memories held in your
subconscious mind.

Past Life Regression can help you to:

* Reconnect with past life experiences.
* Help you understand why you feel a deep connection with certain places.
* Explore your past life and current Soulmate experiences.
* Identify physical ailments you have, which may be remnants of past life experiences.
* Explore unresolved emotions which have carried through into this lifetime, creating
fears or beliefs which you have been unable to explain.
* Acknowledge and embrace the key lessons learned through those lives.

When you receive a past life regression therapy session, the therapist guides you into a relaxed state
(not unlike hypnosis) and prompts you to recall memories from your past lives.
Amitta, who been doing past life regression therapy for over 10 years, explains that this can help
you identify details about the individual you were, the circumstance of your past life, key events,
places where energy or emotions have been blocked or stuck, and even other people in that prior
lifetime that may be here now.
In a session, you also might be guided through the death of that past life and into the realm between
lifetimes, she adds.
There, we can do a life review and look at the lessons [from past lives] and how they might be
impacting the person. Once someone figures out what aspects of their past lives they are carrying
into their present one, she says, we do additional release work to let go of whatever they are still
carrying from that experience.
“In this work, it’s not uncommon to call on higher guidance, whether from a spiritual guide or your
higher self. Amitta notes her clients will often get some pretty deep and helpful guidance for the
next steps in their current life or an overall message”

Practices to get in touch with your soul (and potentially past lives).

According to Amitta, doing past life regression work on yourself is very different from going through
a guided session. However, there are some strategies that she believes can help you tap into your
inner knowing and potentially a past life memory, which she outlines in her book.
Before you get started with any of them, She cautions that you never know what could come up
(upsetting memories are not off the table) and should proceed slowly and with caution.

Look for clues about your prior lifetimes.
One of the easiest ways to start tapping into a past life is to look at the things that feel familiar and
natural to you. Whether it's a person, place, skill, career, or even type of cuisine, you could be
carrying that from a past life.

Take stock of your dreams.
Dreams are another area that can offer us clues into past lives, particularly if you have recurring
dreams—ones that are particularly vibrant and when you wake up you are like was that a dream or
was that real? You may actually be pulling up material from a prior lifetime, so give them
consideration and take time interpreting them.

Ask for guidance.
Before you go into meditation, or go to sleep at night, ask for information about a prior lifetime
that is affecting you now, Whatever you are wondering about, simply ask yourself to dream about it
or get information in meditation. Some people do get spontaneous downloads of recollection when
they do this.


What does the science say?
As with most gnostic disciplines, past life regression therapy (and even the idea of past lives in
general) is not supported by modern science.
There are some anecdotal reports of children making claims about past lives and saying accurate
things about a period of time they should arguably have no knowledge of—but additional evidence
remains elusive.
Tucker, the director of the University of Virginia Division of Perceptual Studies, since the late
has been studying children who report past-life memories. And while he finds past life regression
therapy interesting, to say the least, he and his colleagues are quite skeptical of it and do not
recommend it.
Although there is evidence that some young children have memories of a life in the past, such as in
the cases we have documented in our work at the Division of Perceptual Studies, there is very little to
suggest that past-life regression typically connects with an actual life from the past, Tucker says.
So far, the division research indicates that while "the subjective experience of reliving a previous
life may be impressive to the person having the experience, […] the previous life may be a fantasy,
like most of our dreams, and even if past life regression therapy improves various physical or
psychological symptoms, it does not provide evidence that a real previous life has been

The bottom line.

Past life regression therapy operates from the idea that we can access lessons from previous
lives—which is not supported by science. However, those who are more spiritually inclined might
find value in exploring a new side of themselves and their (potentially everlasting) soul. As Barham
puts it, past life regression really broadens people’s perspective on what we are doing on the planet,
why we are here, and the connections we have—so it’s just a great way to explore: What is this
existence all about?
