Over the years that past-life work has been done, people have found very valuable benefits from individual sessions. Help and healing have come in a variety of areas such as: spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and even economical or financial. Hypnotherapists have found that such inner work goes far beyond the working with the symptoms of the presenting problems; it goes to the root cause.
Soon you’ll get an opportunity to work with visualization and imagination. It is possible that you might go back many years or several lifetimes to find the root cause. You’ll be able to scan the present life, too. Past-life recall comes from long-term memory banks. It will be easy for you to gain some spiritual insights and find ways to apply them in life’s’ experiences. The overview could prove to be quite significant in understanding the root cause of the behavior you are researching at this time and in this way. Lessons from the past will come to your awareness and, when you observe a pattern of behavior, you will be able to develop a way to take corrective action.
Our focus today is going to be the reviewing of another life for the purpose of finding attitudes or events related to your current issue in your life. You also might find your reason for coming to earth—then and now. Everybody comes with a purpose in mind. Remembering such things as your previous name, the place where you lived, and what you did for a living–whether you were royalty or a slave are of only minor importance. Should such information arise spontaneously, that will be fine; otherwise, the seeking of such data need be done only when it is important to the understanding of the situation.
The important learning involves your spiritual progress. The session will go beyond the creative visualization work. Your unconscious mind has had the information stored in symbols for a long time. Now, some deep memories are ready to be processed at the conscious level. Bringing those memories to conscious awareness is only the beginning of the process. During and after the trance part of the session, you’ll gain some insights and you’ll be able to identify a pattern of behavior. You’ll deal with the concept of forgiveness– forgiving others and forgiving self for any perceived or misperceived hurts. You’ll be able to make a choice to take deliberate action to make changes in your life. After today’s session, you’ll realize that you have a lot of knowledge, understanding, insight, skills, strength, and support.
Before we start the creative visualization/reverie for memory to be able to recall easily, it is important to have some deep, pleasant relaxation. You know that sometimes you try to recall something; then you get a good nights sleep and you recall it as soon as you wake up or, perhaps, you start to do something else—something more relaxing and it pops into your mind. You have
heard the term altered state. Your state of mind has been altered because it is relaxed; it is changed from the busy state of normal daily activity. It is a different state of mind. That’s why we call it altered.
I’ll guide you with some suggestions for enjoying the process of relaxing. You are in control at every step of the way. I’m just a guide. If I make a suggestion which you believe is not right for you, you may adjust it in any way which seems appropriate. The process of relaxing and enjoying the bringing forward (as on a computer screen) of another stage of the souls journey is safe,
smooth, and easy. All you have to do is to allow your imagination to do its best job to get you started. I will be making some notes as we go along. (As you can observe, the whole session is being recorded on tape which you may take with you. Any questions?)
- Induction Procedure
Get into a comfortable position so you can relax easily. Take a long, deep breath. Exhale slowly.
That’s good . . . and as you breathe normally, just become aware of the rhythm of your breathing.
Prepare to enter a level of relaxation which is right for you at “this time. When you relax the physical body and have the electrical activity of the brain at an alpha level, the creative mind can be very alert. It is like the period between sleep and awakening, when dreams are quite vivid. It is
a creative time. When you quieten the physical body and keep the mental body alert, you quieten the critical/analytical factor and allow the creative factor to function at its best.
Hold your hands in a comfortable position. Please sit or lie comfortably. Adjust your body as necessary for your comfort. Keep your back as straight as possible to keep the chakras or spiritual centers aligned . . . and when you are ready, just close your eyes.
Take a deep breath; exhale slowly. That’s good . . . and as you breathe normally, just become more aware of the rhythm of your breathing. Become aware of your hands as they touch your
body. As you rest there, become aware that you are beginning to experience a sense of comfort, calmness, and inner peace.
Become aware of the texture of the chair, or of the bed (or the floor). It is just right for your purpose. Become aware of the temperature of the room. It is just right for this experience and it can help you to gain access to what you are seeking at this time.
Become aware of the sounds around you. Those sounds contribute to your accessing what you want to experience now. Those sounds, whether loud or barely audible, are cooperating in helping you to relax and to be at ease and at peace. The sounds are easing you into deeper and deeper relaxation. They are a part of all things; they belong there. It is normal. Should you hear a telephone ring, you’ll be able to blend that sound, too, into your experience. The sound of my voice will go with you as a guide. Should a fire alarm ring or should there be any other indication of an emergency indicating a need for you to respond consciously, you will become alert immediately and you will be able to respond appropriately.
Your eyes are closed and your eyelids are beginning to relax. Allow the relaxation to increase— becoming more and more relaxed. If, at any time you sense some movement in your eyelids, you will know that it is called REM — Rapid Eye Movement—and that it is a normal part of this
experience. It is similar to the state of dreaming.
Now, please take a long, deep breath and allow the muscles in the eyelids to relax. Good. Allow that feeling of relaxation to move to the whole facial area. Now let it spread to the neck and throat, to the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers. Take a long, deep breath and, as you inhale and
exhale, allow the chest -area to relax. Allow the relaxation to flow along the spine, relaxing all areas as it moves along. Let the relaxation spread to the hips, legs, and feet—all the way to the toes. That’s great. Now, take another deep breath and realize that the whole body is becoming more and more relaxed.
Now please take another deep breath, exhale slowly, and continue breathing normally. Each breath is a gift – a gift of life. Please focus on appreciation for the gift of life. Focus on the opportunity you have for expressing who you are. Now, please focus on your awareness of your divine origin.
Focus again on the rhythm of your breathing. Observe the deep inhaling end the slow exhaling. As you continue to be aware of your breathing, you continue to relax . . . and, as you breathe, you realize that you are experiencing spiritual energies. Sense an inner balance.
As you flow with the rhythm of your breathing, you are becoming aware that, as you breathe, your body becomes more and more relaxed and seems to be lighter.
You feel lighter and relaxed. Lighter and relaxed. And you are becoming very comfortable, calm, and peaceful. You are entering a very pleasant state of relaxation. You might feel that your body is asleep but that your mind is alert. That’s good. Very good. The most important thing now is
your own inner reality.
Some people like to ensure further protection by surrounding themselves with a White Light. If you choose, you may do so now. You may use any form of further protection that you choose. A protected, safe, rewarding experience is in process.
Visualize yourself in a long dark tunnel. If you can’t visualize, just imagine, feel or sense yourself here. It’s a large tunnel with plenty of space and at the end of the tunnel is a small, white light. You are floating headlong through this tunnel, speeding towards the white light. It is somewhat cold, but that doesn’t bother you for you know that you are safe. And as you move down through the tunnel you draw closer and closer to the white light, and as you draw closer and closer to the white light, the white light becomes bigger and brighter, bigger and brighter, bigger and bigger, brighter and whiter, until you are right up to the bright, white light, the bright, white light just in front of you. You are no longer floating, you are standing, but if feels as though you’re stepping on soft, fluffy clouds which gradually evaporate into the path upon which you stand. Now, I will count to three, and at the count of three I want you to Step Into The Light.
One. Two. Three. (Pause).
You are now standing In The Light. It is a pure, white light. Feel the light streaming down through the crown of your head. Feel the white light being drawn downwards, through the body, the head, the neck, the shoulders and arms, the chest, the stomach and hips and legs and feet. The beautiful bright white light is in you. You are In The Light. You are The Light.
The Light is Love and You are The Light. You are Love. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy field. Your beautiful white Light. You are In The Light and The Light is in you.
Feel the white light cleansing your whole body, your whole mind and your spirit. Feel the beautiful white light lifting away any impure thoughts or feelings. Feel the healing energy of the white light. This is your light. You are the light. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy, your light, your beautiful bright, white light.
Remain in the light for a little while longer, feeling the healing energy of the Light. Feeling cleansed and thoroughly protected from any negative thought forms which you may or may not encounter in your spiritual adventure or your physical life. You carry the white light within you to guide you through the journey you are about to take.
You are much more relaxed now. In a moment, I’11 count rapidly from ten to one and with each descending number, you will relax deeper and deeper and you will be more centered. At the count
of one, you will reach a level of relaxation which is right for you at this time and for the present purpose. I’ll begin by counting downward. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.
Your are now, at your own level of relaxation sand, from this level, you are able to function as you choose. You are in control at every step of the way. You feel safe and protected. The, experience is something that you want, here and now.
III. Trance State
(Throughout the trance state, acknowledge responses and ask questions as needed)
- Getting Ready
Sometimes, it is good to have a kind of shorthand communication with your guide. The usual is a finger signal for yes and for no. Which finger will you raise for a yes response? Thank you. Which finger will you raise for a no response? Thank you. That’s good. Stored deeply in your unconscious mind are memories of other times and other places. You are able to retrieve those memories. At this time, you will be able to gain access to the record of the
soul’s journey. By looking deeply into your unconscious mind, you can see, hear, feel, or sense— perceive in some way—scenes from the past. Those memories can be processed to provide you with new understanding and insight. Later, you can apply your insights to understand yourself better. Now, you are going to begin a process of recalling some memories. Whatever you recall
will be just what you need at this time.
- The Memories
You may begin by moving yourself to a time when you were in your teens. You will find that it is very easy to do. Choose a memory of that time. Choose a scene or an event that you would like to relate from your teen age years. Bring the saliva to your mouth and let your lips become moist so that you may speak easily and now, you are in your teens. Describe what you are experiencing—
what are you doing, or seeing, or hearing, or feeling, or sensing?
That’s good. Now, continue moving to a time when you were about three or four or five years old. Again, choose an experience and focus on the memory . . . You are now three or four or five years old. What’s happening?
You are doing well. Now continue to move beyond that time. Move to the time of your birth. If you want to do so, you may pause to note the time of your birth. (Ask any questions which seem
…. and now, move beyond the womb experience. Move to the place where you were before you entered the body. Some people refer to it as a Blue Mist. It could be something a little different for you. It is abounding space; a room without walls or ceiling; a timeless place. It is a place of inner peace and gentle rhythms.
The Blue Mist—this timeless, space less place—is really the avenue of the heart to the Infinite.
You feel very comfortable and happy; yet, you must follow your plan to go beyond that comfortable place to bring to your memory scenes or events from one of your other lives on earth.
You are guided to a horizon. You perceive a light. You realize that the light is good and you move toward it. You travel with your feelings.
Now, you are beyond the Blue Mist. Light surrounds you and protects you. You feel energized for an inner adventure and you are ready to recall or to revisit some scenes or events from your other lives on earth.
Take a deep breath. Feel, see, or sense yourself being drawn to earth. As you move toward the earth, you place your feet firmly there. The movement is happening automatically. Just allow it to happen . . . and as your feet touch the earth, wherever it might be, you know, at the soul level, exactly what your purpose is. When your feet reached the earth, you may raise your yes finger to
indicate that you are ready.
You are doing well. As you step firmly onto the earth, trust the impressions that you receive. If necessary, use your creative imagination to get the process started. Just allow the story to unfold.
What do you perceive?
(Here are some suggestions for people who are hesitant in responding. Use as needed. Add other
questions as needed.)
What are you feeling? What are you wearing on your feet? Note the clothing that you are wearing. Note whether there is anything on your head. What’s the color of your hair? How old are you? What are you doing? What’s going on around you? Describe your home or dwelling place. What’s your favorite food? What was used for transportation?
. . . and now, find a time when you were with other people. Find somebody with whom you have a strong connection.
Now please move to the time of an important event fairly early in that life. What’s happening?
Now, move to another significant time perhaps around the middle part of your life or, maybe a little later. What’s happening?
Now move along to the events close to the end of that life. You may choose to dissociate from it and view it as if on a screen. You may remember it by sensing what happened. Use your own choice of the method of recall. Detach yourself as necessary. Note the circumstances that led to your death . . . and now note the death experience itself. What are your final words either to
yourself or to another person?
When you are ready, move gently and safely above that body and go, again, to that timeless and spaceless place of inner peace and gentle rhythms. It is a place to review the life. For a moment, just enjoy the peaceful relaxation there.
- Soul Review
From this higher perspective, you are able to assess that life.
- First, identify a pleasant scene or event in that life.
- Which person or persons contributed to making the event pleasant?
- What was there about that person’s life which made that person pleasing to you?
- How did you show your happiness at that time?
- Identify another pleasant event. What does it have in common with the other event which you selected?
- What insight can you gain regarding the type of which tended to make you happy?
- Identify a difficult experience in that life.
- Which person or persons contributed to making that event difficult?
- What is there about that person’s life which could have led to such action?
Use your imagination, if necessary.
- How could you have handled the situation differently? Examine the role you played.
- Perceive whether that person had any pain or suffering as a result of your discomfort.
- What regret, if any, did the person express for having that painful action? Recall the words which he or she said.
- Perceive, in any way you choose, as the person explains the cause of the action. Realize that the persons explanation helps you to understand the situation.
- Which positive characteristics have you developed as result of having struggled with such feelings of hurt?
- Decide whether you are ready to forgive that person. Realize that the act of forgiveness is for yourself. It will change how you feel. It will set you free from entanglement.
The other person makes his or her own decisions. Any physical involvement of the other person would mean an act of reconciliation; right now, you are working only with your own part in forgiving that person.
- If you are ready to do so, give the person your forgiveness. In your imagination, look into that persons eyes and send universal love and compassion . . . and as you take that important step of forgiveness, bless that person, release him or her, and let the person fade., Allow the veil to drop slowly. A full healing is taking place. Take any amount of time which you need and indicate with your yes finger when the process is complete.
- By processing the issue with forgiveness, to what extent were you able to dissolve the emotional impact?
- Remembering the facts of the event is acceptable. It is important that you learn something from the experience. Consider it as a lesson which it was necessary for you to learn. Just place that life experience into a step in developing spiritual growth. In order to learn to overcome an issue, you need to have an issue to overcome. Your offender provided that opportunity. You can pass a test only if you take a test.
Every challenge which you face and every problem which you overcome will provide an opportunity for you to be closer to recognizing your own origin in divinity.
- Identify another difficult event. In which way is it similar to the event which you have just processed? How could you have handled the situation in a different way? (or) What is the best thing you could have done at the time? Examine both events and look for a behavior pattern.
What insight can you gain which could help you in similar situations in other lives?
- By processing the issue with forgiveness, to what extent were you able to transform or to dissolve the emotional impact?
- Determine whether you need forgiveness for one or more of your actions in that life. If so, then, perceive in any way you choose that you are forgiven, completely. You were forgiven a long time ago. Now you can become aware of being forgiven and you can accept the forgiveness and live your life accordingly.
- What was your ideal in that lifetime? How successful were you in attaining your ideal?
- How did you gain spiritually? .
- Enjoy the freedom—the freedom from entanglements. As you change your behavior in accordance with your new insights, begin to enjoy a much more pleasant experience.
- Trance Exit
That was good. Now you are ready for the journey back to what is called the present time. You may bring back with you anything that is helpful and beneficial: a gem of wisdom to guide you as you continue with life’s journey. If you choose, you may release some feelings, memories, and impressions and retain in your conscious mind only that which is positive and helpful. The choice is yours.
Now, slowly, you are returning through the Blue Mist, traveling on the avenue of the heart, through a comfortable and safe place, through the levels of your mind. You may bring back the information you have chosen. Slowly, come back through the years into what we call the present life, the present day ______ , and the present location ________.
As you return, you realize that you have done well. You have remembered the past in trust and in thankfulness. You have received a special gift, a treasure from the past. There might be a surprise gift. You might find that, as a result of applying deep memory skills, your general and specific memory skills have improved.
In a moment, with a count from one to ten, you may reorient yourself completely to the present time and to the present day. At the count of ten, you will be refreshed and feeling great. Counting slowly,
1- stepping firmly into the present
2 – feel total normalization
3 – feel the life energies returning to your extremities
4 – you may wish to move your hands, neck, or feet
