Past life regression focuses on discovering the origins of a problem and ‘going back’ to bring healing to the original situation. Past life regression allows access to past lives, real or symbolic, which in some cases hold the keys to resolving current issues.
Our lives are made of stories – our stories. Hypnotherapy and EFT allow us to experience our stories more vividly, both present and past life, with the opportunity to clear up misunderstandings, let go of negative emotions, gain a broader perspective and free up our energy. These are journeys of discovery, too, as we explore the deeper levels of our minds and hearts. Most people who experience regression therapy find that their lives are enriched and they feel more whole as a result.
What to Expect in a Past Life Regression
In a typical past life regression session, you are gently guided through hypnotherapy to find an inner experience from an earlier time. The stories that emerge carry powerful emotion and heartfelt meaning. Past life regression allows access to deep levels of the personality where emotional patterns are rooted and core beliefs held. Healing work at this level includes clearing the negative emotion and distorted beliefs with EFT. Sometimes the physical body has been holding the stress, and as it is cleared, people are permanently freed of pain or tension.
We usually end with further hypnotherapy to bring healing, wholeness and harmony to all parts of you and restore the connection with your True Self. The work is gentle, nurturing and safe. If you uncover something painful from the past, you have complete control and choice as to whether you wish to feel it intensely or accomplish the healing more gently. And positive past lives often emerge, giving us powerful healing images of our potential strength and wholeness.
Past life regression can reveal the soul’s work in relationships and other life challenges. Whether one believes in past lives or prefers to consider these experiences as rich personal metaphors from the deep subconscious mind, they are often deeply transformative.
Fee for the Special Long Session:
The first past life regression session requires an extra-long session of 3 hours. We schedule an entire morning (usually beginning at 9 or at 10 am) or an entire afternoon (usually beginning at 1 or at 2 pm). I can either schedule your session on a weekday or, in certain cases, on a Saturday.
Please note: Past Life Regressions are best done in person in my office in Burlington, Vermont. In some cases, I can guide a regression via Skype, but that is something we would need to discuss.
My fee for the 3-hour Past Life Regression session : $225
You will receive a recording of the entire regression as an downloadable mp3.
Subsequent sessions: If you do a series of regressions, the sessions after the first one are usually 2 to 2 1/2 hours and the fee is $175. This option is only available when not much time has elapsed since the first session. If a year or more has gone by, we return to the session above.
Past Life Regression Classes & Workshops
My past life regression work can be made available to groups. I have often done either a half-day introductory workshop, “Discover Past Life Regression” (includes 1 group regression) or a day-long workshop, “Explore Your Past Lives” (includes 2-3 group regressions). If your group is interested in an introductory group session or in the longer workshop, please contact me.
The Legacy of the Storm Shaman – A Past-Life Regression Story
One of the most fascinating regressions I have facilitated was this “Storm Shaman” story, and it also involved a physical healing. My client tells the story in her own words:
Since childhood, I had been affected by changing weather systems. Over the years, I became increasingly incapacitated by migraines that began when a pressure system was still hours away and did not end until the system had completely left the area. Unlike other migraines, these were not diminished or relieved by medication, massage, chiropractic or any other intervention that would typically work for other types of migraine. I began to wonder if at some time these migraines had served some useful purpose and that was the reason that they were so ingrained.
In this regression, we began with that question in mind to determine if there was some longstanding unconscious positive or helpful reason why these migraines seemed to be untouchable. After Betty’s skillful induction, I immediately saw a white-haired man dressed in furs, whose weathered face was deeply lined. He was in a cave with a small clan of people and he occupied a place nearest the fire, clearly a place of honor.
As the scene progressed, I became aware that he was a shaman who had the ability to sense storms coming to an amazingly precise degree. His skill was a life-saving gift to his people since he knew when the hunters could safely hunt and when they should stay in and preserve what little meat they had left. It seemed that this lifetime took place in the period when the ancestors of the Native Americans were crossing the land bridge, a journey made more arduous by severe weather conditions, blizzards and ice storms. The weather was a daily factor in survival and his storm knowledge was critical.
Unfortunately, the shaman’s knowledge was gained at great cost to himself. In his lineage, many of his ancestors had the same skill and practiced it in spite of great head pain that we would call migraines today. In addition to his inherited ‘gift’, the shaman had suffered a head and neck injury while hunting when he was younger, so his ability to ‘sense’ oncoming storms, while enhanced, cost him greatly in terms of head pain, nausea, dizziness, and visual and sensory disturbances.
He was revered by his people, who cared for him when this sacrifice took its toll on his health, nursing him until he recovered. Once he received the information they needed about the storms, they would put him to bed on furs, protect his eyes from the light of the fire, massage his head and neck, and feed him meat broth with herbs. He was much loved and honored for his gift, which he passed on genetically to his descendents.
After following the story of the Storm Shaman’s life, Betty took me forward to his death and had me release back to this brave soul the ‘gift’ of weather migraines-‘storm sickness,’ as he called it-and the resulting ingrained pain. Since this session, I still feel the pressure systems coming and sense the weather changes, but without the accompanying crippling pain and devastation of migraines that can’t be dislodged. Since we are fortunate enough to live in a time when we have 24-hour weather news, it is no longer appropriate for me to carry this ‘gift’ or the sacrifices it entails. While feeling great compassion and gratitude to the Storm Shaman, I feel even greater relief that it no longer falls to me to carry the burden of his lineage.”
