As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from “the space between lives,” which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss’s family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.
A graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School, Brian L. Weiss M.D. is Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami. Dr. Weiss conducts national and international seminars and experiential workshops as well as training programs for professionals.
I participated in a 4 day training programme with Dr Brian Weiss in London in 2015 where we learned much more about past lives and past life regression therapy. Having read all his books starting around 1995 to the present time, I was excited to train with the doctor. I qualified in Clinical Hypnosis in 2016 shortly after completing the course.
The 4 days were filled with regressions, stories of regression from the Doctor and exercises to aid 'experiences'. I myself had 4 or 5 past life experiences, extremely vivid and emotional. Some were ordinary lives but which still had a profound affect on my soul, another one saw me witness the crucifixion of Jesus. What became apparent was not so much the lives themselves, but my feelings towards them. It was in understanding my feelings that the 'therapy' occurred.
The Benefits of Past Life Regression Therapy
The benefits of past life regression therapy (PLRT) are numerous and often transformative. PLRT can heal deeper and get results much more quickly than many other therapeutic approaches.
Here are just a few of the advantages you can realize:
Clear emotional stress, trauma and physical issues
Calm feelings of anxiety and/or depression
Heal troubled relationships
Understand and change behaviours, patterns and tendencies
Uncover dormant past life gifts and talents and actualize those in this life
Reveal past life souls you know from this life
Mentally, emotionally and spiritually unify past life experiences with your soul’s life lessons
Reconnect with your Spiritual Centre
Receive spiritual guidance and direction
Experience universal wisdom and peace not always available to us in our Earthly bodies.
The Goal and the Process
Everything you’ve seen, felt and experienced in this life…as well as all the memories of your previous existences are housed in your subconscious…and then brought to light in your current consciousness during this process.
Even if You’ve Forgotten, Your Body Remembers
One of my past life therapy clients was a 68 year old man suffering with chronic pain in his left leg. This pain in his leg had been troubling him for years.
In our work together, he visited a past life in which he was a German soldier injured during the Franco-Prussian war. In an attempt to save his life, they cut off his leg, but he died shortly afterward in excruciating pain. That experience imprinted itself on his unconscious and manifested itself as a troubling pain in his leg in his current life. There was no organic origin for the pain in this lifetime.
That leg pain began mysteriously in his late 20’s. During his regression therapy session, he realized he was about the same age when injured in his past life. This often happens. An issue carried forward from a past life may not surface until the age of impact in the past life.
With that past life memory in his consciousness, he was able to recognize that the pain and the event were in the past and had nothing to do with his current life.
Almost miraculously, the pain that had bothered him most of his adult life was 90% gone. There is a good likelihood that there is another lifetime in which his leg was injured. If he continued to do PLRT work, and uncovered that lifetime, there’s a good chance he could be rid of the remaining 10%.
Traditional Therapy Doesn’t Always Work
When conventional therapy doesn’t work, there may be one simple reason. The therapist is looking for the trauma or problematic event (that caused the psychological issues) in the wrong place--or should I say time.
Almost every type of therapy assumes that traumas and important events from an individual’s past influence the present.
PLRT assumes that as well, the only difference is that the unconscious mind goes beyond this lifetime. It carries forth the events and repercussions from events that go beyond early childhood, prenatal and birth periods right into past existences.
You can see how it can be difficult to find the triggers if you don’t search back far enough. PLRT finds the root causes and therefore heals more deeply and quickly than traditional therapies.
When Past-Life Therapy Can Help
The release of old energetic blocks generates a flow of wonderful mental and emotional clarity, revealing the life-lessons needed to achieve happiness in this lifetime, while also advancing the course of future lifetimes.
Some of the more significant areas in which past-life therapy have traditionally been used are:
Troubling behaviour and attitude patterns that have persisted over time, despite attempts to change
Relationship dynamics that seem to have a life of their own (intense attraction/aversion to another person, deep-seated issues that defy resolution)
Phobias – intense fears, such as fear of heights or fear of water, that seem unconnected to an experience in the current life
Some chronic physical ailments, sensations and pains
Dominant attitudes or emotions that seem to persist throughout your life
Ingrained beliefs such as: “Leave me alone”, “No one understands me”, “Life isn’t fair”, “I have to do it alone”
There are other exciting ways in which past-life therapy is being applied.
We focus on the positive, rather than going after traumatic or troubling memories. PLRT is used to enhance one’s life by allowing individuals to ‘own,’ reclaim or rediscover gifts, abilities and talents from past lives; and to carry forward wonderful emotions for both healing and growth.
It Helps in Rewarding Areas as Well!
Accessing strengths and accomplishments from prior lifetimes can be brought forward to increase confidence and effectiveness in the present.
Re-experiencing a happy, successful lifetime; this can bring a sense of balance and peace when undergoing difficult times, fortifying us to work through our temporary difficulties
Clarifying direction and life purpose by viewing one’s ‘blueprint’ for this lifetime
Finding prior lifetimes shared with current loved ones, bringing a great sense of reassurance that we are indeed never parted from those we love
Accessing the wisdom, peace and guidance that is available from the spiritual realms between lifetimes where our higher mind and/or guiding ones can assess our progress and give direction to us for our current lifetime
Strengthening the clarity of the spiritual nature of our existence.
When you think about it, it’s freeing. Past life regression can bring you peace as it shines a light on the complicated tapestry of your total existence and your purpose as an evolving soul.
Life makes a lot more sense when you have a deeper understanding of the bigger picture.
