PLR – Past Life Regression
Evolve Hypnosis have been practicing Past Life Regression Therapy (PLR) for the past many years in Mumbai. We have helped our client to resolve and heal their past physical, psychological and relationship issues. It is dynamic and works at the sub-conscious level. We may never be able to prove we have lived before, yet the benefits for personal empowerment, healing and enlightenment are tremendous. PLR means different things to different people. It is a theory, a philosophy, a belief system, a way of Life. PLR provides a rationale for the inequalities and the suffering of life. It gives us many insights into our many individual differences. It helps us to understand that we are the master of our own destiny. PLR teaches us that what we are today is the result of our past and what we will become tomorrow is determined by how we live today. No longer will you have to say “Why is this always happening to me? Why do I always run into these same kinds of people and situations?” PLR helps you see the larger patterns of life within your own individual circumstances and enables you to reshape your life.
One of pioneer of PLR is Psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss M.D. He was also responsible for creating awareness about Past Life Therapy as a healing model in Psychotherapy. According to Weiss in 1980 one of his patients “Catherine” began discussing Past Life experiences under hypnosis. Weiss has stated that he did not believe in reincarnation at the time, but after confirming elements of Catherine’s past life stories through research into public records, came to be convinced of the survival of an element of the human personality after death.Since 1980 Weiss claims that he has regressed more than 4000 patients. Weiss advocates the therapeutic benefits of hypnotic Past life Regression, noting his belief that many present life phobias and ailments are rooted in Past Life experiences that–when acknowledged by the patient – has a curative effect on the present–life condition
Past Life Regression (PLR) is a method of accessing the memories of Past Lives in order to understand certain physical or psychological ailments, which are otherwise inexplicable. This technique is also used to understand relationships in our life, which affect us deeply, but for no logical reason. PLR has its roots in the belief of reincarnation – Law of Karma.
We unconsciously carry forward experiences, attitudes, patterns and relationships from our past lives into our current life. Most often Past Life memories and experiences are beneficial in living our day to day life. And sometimes certain current events triggers off unwanted feelings and emotions in the current life. This Past Life traumatic experiences, i.e. like a violent death or loss of a loved one, are left unresolved, relationships are left unhealed, or attitudes, patterns and decisions may be carried forward from a past life that are detrimental to our current life. That is where Past Life Regression therapy has been used to resolve those traumas and other issues that are blocking our progress and happiness now.
The memories of all of your experiences are stored in your unconscious mind since you became a soul, with the awareness of your individuality. Past Life Regression is reaching into those memory banks to recapture the events of past lifetimes. It is not very different from trying to remember events that took place during your early childhood. At first the Past Life memories may be dim and few, but each event remembered sparks another memory and another, until it becomes easy.
With the help of hypnosis, guided imaginary and relaxation methods a client is regressed to a time and place in the previous life where the specific event occurred. By bringing these memories into conscious awareness, we can release the blocked energy. By re-experiencing the key events of a Past Life and reprogramming the impact helps to bring closure to the events of that lifetime. This releases blocked energy and enables us to experience the freedom and move forward more freely in the present. Even if one believes these “memories” are not true Past Life experiences, they function as symbolic stories and are equally as effective in resolving current life issues.
Of course, not all problems and issues are rooted in experiences from Past Life. It is important to distinguish when we have a current life issue if it needs to be addressed through Past Life Regression or another method.
The main purpose of PLR Therapy is one of personal, emotional and spiritual growth. However, it can also help overcome fears, phobias and other physical and emotional challenges in the current life. Some of the lessons that we may bring back with us are forgiveness, love, generosity, patience, social skills and emotional intelligence. This helps us to grow as human and spiritual beings and to improve our current lives as we lose many of our fears and become wiser.
A PLR session usually begins with hypnosis and guided visualization, which helps the person to achieve an altered state of consciousness. From there, they experience themselves going into another time and place. Once conscious of another personality, the person will be led through the various key incidents of that lifetime, focusing on unresolved emotions, problems and conflicts. That process takes up about half the session: the remainder is devoted to healing the effects of the negative thought-patterns, emotions and physical traumas that may have arisen in that life. Some people are able to obtain insight and wisdom from inner guides or their Higher Self.
The healing techniques used in PLR Therapy are usually based upon visualization: the client, normally while still in regression, is encouraged to find symbols of any physical traumas, emotional issues, behavior or lifestyle patterns, vows, resolutions, key decisions, etc., manifest in the past lifetime, and these issues are worked with symbolically, until released. Each person experiences the release differently: perhaps as an insight, a sudden sense of freedom, or a physical surge of energy.
Some people believe in Past Lives (Karmas) and some don’t but still would want to experience Past Life Regression Therapy having read books and seen TV shows. Many people having a belief in Past Lives hence experiences Past Life Regression as factual and real, and others doubt and think it’s imagined. We personally have no way of authenticating or validating whether the past life experience is real or imagined. We strongly believe that Past Life Regression therapy actually is very helpful whether real or imagined. Most importantly Past Life Regression Therapy heals, and gives us lessons of love, forgiveness, wisdom and insights that help improve our current life. We know for certain it produces a profound positive change and outcome.
From our experiences with many people with whom we have worked, if someone came to us and said, “I think, I have a Past Life issue to resolve,” then, we might take them down that road and help them experience Past Life Regression as it’s a part of their belief system. Believing in Past Lives is not a prerequisite, neither is one’s religion. What’s important is the client’s willingness to experience Past Life Therapy, but definitely having a belief helps. Secondly, it’s our observation that some people after the Past Life Therapy session say, “May be I was imagining it.” The same client after sometime tells us that the issue they came to us for, got resolved. Hence we believe, it doesn’t matter whether people experience Past Life for real or just imagine it, as long as their unconscious minds achieve their therapeutic goal. To sum up – catharsis and closure are attained. What’s really important is that there is a new learning, an understanding, wisdom and healing in their current life, with a positive shift.
