What is past life regression?

Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives.

It is thought that, by exploring these past lives, a hypnotherapist can help you to uncover personal stories that help to explain who you are now. The hope is that you may discover a root cause of an issue from a previous life, which is affecting you in your current life.

What techniques are used?

It is often claimed to be a full sensory experience – clients will not only visualise situations, but they may be able to hear sounds as if they were in the room, as well as recalling specific smells.

Practitioners of regression therapy use hypnosis to help their clients relax and encourage them to open their minds. Other techniques such as suggestion. help to promote recall, and specific questions are designed to elicit statements and memories of the client’s past lives.

What is this type of hypnotherapy used for?

Some people hope to try past life regression simply out of curiosity, to see who they were in the past. But for most, it’s a path for personal growth and healing. To enable you to get the most out of your session, it is important to have a specific ‘intention’.

While you might wish to remain open to whatever you may experience in the regression, it is generally thought that having an intention offers a better context to understand and process the experience.

What will happen in a session?

There is no way of knowing for sure what you will experience during regression therapy, as everyone experiences it differently. Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one in more detail, or discover repressed memories from their current lifetime.

The important thing to remember is that you are a unique individual with a unique history, so your experience of past life regression therapy will be equally unique.
