Could past lives be key to present goals?
by StevieAnne Petitt —
We have all likely heard the phrase: Hindsight is 20/20. That is, with the knowledge we have gained over time, past decisions could have been made with much more wisdom, thus resulting in better outcomes.
Perhaps, in the field of hypnotherapy and its advanced technique of past life regression (PLR), foresight may hold the answers we seek for present-day objectives. Whether those aspirations are to support mental, emotional, physical or spiritual goals, visiting a past life may reveal or even resolve matters that have troubled someone their entire life and, quite possibly, in many lifetimes before.
Hypnotherapy is an effective tool that promotes deep relaxation and invites guided imagery communicated to the subconscious mind to integrate states of imbalance that exist in an individual’s body, mind and spirit. Many clients and practitioners have shared testimonials declaring that powerful healing and transformation can take place during these sessions. Most likely this happens because the subconscious understands metaphors and images as a means of communication.
Through these guided narrations, which include the client’s goals (as defined by them), desired outcomes can be acknowledged by and communicated to the subconscious as a way of reframing thoughts and behaviors that are in favor of the client. Hypnotherapists use many techniques to assist clients in real time, one of which is PLR.
PLR is an advanced technique, typically only offered to those who have already experienced hypnotherapy sessions. With it, practitioners are able to assist in moving a client to explore deeper parts of their psyche.
This process invites awareness of images, feelings and knowledge of any physical, spiritual or emotional imbalances or influences as experienced by the client. Here, information from the past is acknowledged to directly affect the present. In a sense, it is revisiting the past and using foresight to rewrite the future.
The primary goal of both hypnotherapy and PLR is to help an individual live a more integrated lifestyle relative to their ambitions in the present moment, as people tend to have an innate drive toward wholeness and purpose.
Using PLR to understand and retrieve unconscious motivational factors at their origin and, quite literally, rewrite history, serves as a powerful and proven technique in transforming patterns and routines, often instantaneously in real time.
Whether the use of PLR is the actual revisiting of past lives or simply serves as a Rolodex® of previously experienced and/or forgotten images, integrating the information therein can be the catalyst to present-day progress.
