It is a popular belief that human beings have multiple lives and when we die, we are reborn into a different existence. It is this belief that has given rise to Past Life Regression, a form of hypnosis that delves deep into a person’s previous lifetimes to recover memories, lessons and teachings from them. To know more about this, we got in touch with Karuna Jain, a California based Certified Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Advanced Reiki Master and Pranic Healer.
She has conducted multiple Past Life Regression and Healing sessions and strongly believes in the power and value they hold. Here is all she had to say about it:
Jain says that Past Life Regression is based on two theories. First is the Theory of Reincarnation, which states that living beings are reborn until they attain a state of Nirvana (absolute enlightenment). Each of their lives has unique learnings, teachings and experiences that are carried forward in some ways to their future lives. Second is the Law of Karma which believes that you reap what you sow. Our Karma gets stored and shapes something called a Karmic Body, which transcends lifetimes. She says,
Past Life Regression is a way to access the previous lives that a person has lived to clear up energy blockages in their Karmic Body and learn from them as well.
A person can treat their past lives in two ways; they can either view it and remove energy blockages or learn from it and use it to heal their current life, which is extremely powerful. The main tool used in this process is hypnosis. A person can access their past life in various ways. They can simply watch it in a detached way (much like watching a movie), tag along and experience their past life second-hand, which is more intense or have a complete in-body experience and actually relive their past life, which warrants maximum emotional release.
Jain further adds,
It’s very important to work with a trained professional experienced with Past Life Regression so that your past life can be accessed safely without causing harm. Just like in case of a surgery, you would not want an untrained novice to cut into you. He may snip a capillary or tear a wall which would harm you in the long run. Memories are part of your energy body, so you need someone who understands how to reach into it and is trained and open-minded.
Jain believes that Past Life Regression can help someone positively change their behaviour, understand their relationship with certain people, cure physical illnesses and lead to a spiritual awakening. Many of her patients have even rid themselves of fears which arose from their previous life experiences.
It’s a wonderful way to know that you are a multidimensional being and that you have time. We all are under so much pressure when it comes to time. We feel we are constantly running out of it and rush through things in this lifetime, but we have thousands of years to learn and evolve. We’re like pearl necklaces and each pearl is a different lifetime. Even if you don’t accomplish something in this lifetime, you need not worry because you have many more lifetimes to go. This understanding lessens the stress and anxiety many people face.
You need to have a good therapist to help you understand and grow from your past lives. If the therapist is unable to do this, then it can have an adverse effect on your current life. It might create trauma in your current lifetime. For instance, if someone was sexually abused in their previous life and the therapist is not equipped to help resolve it, it may lead to the creation of a new trauma and fear in their current one.
Our past behaviour patterns and emotional baggage gets manifested in our current life, and it is important to let go of that and clear those blockages. It also helps break past life patterns and overcome emotional and physical hurdles. This benefits one’s current and future lives because as one cleans up their Karmic Body, it becomes lighter and reaches enlightenment sooner. It’s like dropping dead-weight off a ship to help it sail better.
Jain says that a trained therapist can take you in a deep level of trance where your rational mind (which can think and make up things) is not active. Your subconscious mind cannot lie or pretend. Hence, “faking it” is not possible. Additionally, a trained hypnotherapist can catch lies and pretences.
If my patients have issues that I cannot link to their current life, I recommend Past Life Regression. However, pretty much anyone can benefit from it as it is extremely helpful. However, those who have issues sitting still or focusing, may not be good candidates for this.
