havent posted in a long while but thought id get back in the loop , so to speak.

so...i came out of work tonight and my mom was picking me up, and while we were driving home she sed "you know you wanted a past life-regression , well iv booked you an appointment..." i was like.."huh" i didnt ask her for one so i said you must of dream't it and she was adament id asked her ,so i said why the hell not aye , "yeah ill do it ! ".

so on sataday im goin to have this regression lol...its always interested me to what my past life may have been , my moms had it done and from what i recall , as she told me a long time ago , it went something along the lines of she was a resident or citizen of atlantis , which i always found interesting, on another note shes scared of drowning and relates it to her past life experiences.

but what i really wanted to know was, if anyone else had had this done and what effect (if any) did it have on you?

im not aprehensive, just extremly curios as to what i may find out.

as i say any experiences youve had or people you know of had id be very pleased to read them, id appreciate a little insight from some ATS members.

Just be careful. Certain hypnoses can cause you to have memories that seem real, but that never happened. I.e. if the hypnotist leads you.

I think it's called planted memories or something.

They can be just as traumatic as if you had a real event and they've been proven to be possible through this kind of thing.

It first happened to some children and they were lead and convinced they had abuse memories when, in reality, they never did. They ended up traumatized as did their whole family.

Good luck.

This sounds like fun, for entertainment purposes, only. Just imagine how much the person who is regressing you gets paid. Why is it they always tell people they had a past life in Atlantis, or were Cleopatra? Nobody ever seems to have had a dull past life!

well the person who is doin my "regression" is a friend of my moms , so if she trusts her i trust her , and i think its gonna be free so , like i say i cant complain lol

i know what you mean about inplanted memories, id hate that to happen , gonna have the thing either recorded or , recorded on film.hopefully.

ill post the results if i get it recorded, if i dont ill still write what happened.

has anybody had this done tho?

If its one of those regressions were you stay half-aware the whole time, you cant be manipulated. Unfortunately, you can pretty much make up whatever you want as well.

So lets hope its one where you are no longer fully aware and that the hypnotist is a trustworthy person who will record the session.

As iv said the person doing it is a friend of my moms so i trust her plus ill have her there the whole time, my mom that is.

you said thay can manipulate me , but i can also do that myself, in what way can i manipulate myself?, so you mean i can conjure up my thoughts into a semi - real memory type thing? if you understand me. or do you mean something completly different?

Have F-U-N!!!! I've done past life regressions in the past (is that redundant? ha) But I didn't utilize a hypnotist. I did it thru a series of meditation cycles. I know this is going to sound funny but some people feel that your inner child holds your past life the meditation focused on getting in touch with your inner child, knowing that part of you...loving that aspect of yourself too. Paraphrasing the Bible, 'and so a child shall lead...'

What do you truly expect to gain from this experience? Just for fun?

As a side note...I hope the hypnotist will gently guide you so you experience/see good past lives...not the nasty stuff, well, not at your way up to "I'll take Heinous Past Lives for 1,000., Wink"

I dont exactly know what i hope to gain from this , its just my moms arranged it and i thought it would be a good thing to do.

it should be fun,can you tell me how you did your PLR through meditation?

Heh. I was told the same thing.

Apparently, I was some sort of scientist on Atlantis who did alot of work with crystals or something. I'm also fearful of drowning (my worst fear of dying actually), but who isn't scared of drowning?

I think the whole "you were on Atlantis!" thing is quite common in past-life regressions.

I had one once, specifically to find out whether I had a past-life connection with a guy I was in love with at the time, but who behaved in a very confusing way (we weren't together). One day he was very charming and nice, the next he'd be distant and almost cruel.

In my PLR, I "found out" (in quotation marks, since you can never be completely sure that you didn't just make it up) that I had been some kind of damsel at court in medieval times, and he was the court jester. He was in love with me, and I treated him like dirt and made fun of him in front of the whole court -- after which he started hating me. I guess what goes around comes around...

I did have other, spontaneous PLRs, though... and one of them was actually confirmed by someone else who was with me in that past life. That was REALLY cool, to have independent confirmation. Since then, I'm a firm believer in reincarnation.

Well it's one thing to be fearful of drowning... but another thing to have an irrational fear of water to the point that you refuse to participate in normal water activities.

I always had an irrational fear of water. I found out that I was killed by drowning in a prior lifetime (bound by rope and tossed off of a bridge), which explained why I was so unusually afraid.

Hey there jinj,

I'm a past-life regression therapist ... have been for over 10yrs ... love my job coz I get to travel the world without leaving the comfort of my office ... and never get jet-lag either.

Note to the poster who wondered what phenomenol amounts we get paid ...

1/ Well I can only speak for myself of course but my listed price is £35 (one and a half hour session + transcript). and that is flexible if someone wants to be regressed but can't afford that much then I accept whatever they can afford to pay.

2/ Throughout the hundreds of people that I've regressed I've never had a Cleopatra ... Napoleon ... King Solomon or anyone else famous on my couch but I suppose even famous historical figures can come back as just a regular joe at some point ... so not impossible.

3/ I've never ever come across a regression therapist who TELLS their client who they were in a past-life ... although I have heard of it and I would think it very suspect. A bit like getting paid to tell someone a bedtime story ... and I bet they'd charge a damnsite more than I do ! The memories must come from the clients subconscious mind so that they get the benefit of understanding what makes them tick in this life.


I became a regression therapist after experiencing 'spontaneous' past-life memory back in 1992 (no therapy involved). I recalled a lifetime at Millcombe, in North Cornwall (between Tintagel and Boscastle), during the 17th century. I wrote all my flashbacks down and made them into a book.

Being a natural sceptic I wanted to know if the people/places etc. that I'd recalled had actually existed ... or had I just lost the plot. The last four chapters of my book cover the authenticating evidence that I'd discovered during my research.

I know the sceptics out there will probably say, 'how do we know that you didn't do the research then write the story'?

Well of course I can't prove that and if no-one believes me I couldn't really give a s*** ... because I only needed to convince me that my sanity was still in tact ... although there are some who know me that might dispute that last comment

I developed a technique that doesn't use hypnoisis. This has many benefits namely ... it reduces the anxiety factor in first time clients ... the client is aware of everything they have said throughout the session ... the memory is less likely to be tainted by suggestion from the therapist (intentional or accidental) ... the recall is as close to spontaneous memory as it's possible to get.

The benefits of regression are numerous;

1/ improves (if not eliminates), stress related pain/emotional problems/phobias.

2/ Helps you to understand why you react to certain people/situations the way that you do in your current life.

3/ Makes you feel more complete

I could go on but you'll soon know for yourself. Enjoy it and let us know how it goes and who/where/when you were. It changed my life forever and for the better. If you have any specific questions ask away.

That was me that made the comments about nobody having a dull past life. Thanks for setting me straight about how you do your clients regressions. You said you don't tell your clients who they were, so I'd like to know, since they are alert during your sessions, if they ever tell you? Also, on average, how many lives do people usually recall in a session, or do you limit them to one, and have them come back for other sessions to recall others? What's the largest number of past lives any of your clients have recalled? Yes, I do believe an average Joe could have been a famous person in the past, and with that being said, have you run across any? If so, care to share? What has been the most interesting regression you have worked on? Do you follow up with your clients on some of the benefits you see from your work? Like a person who has had a fear of water, or flying, etc....down the road at some time?

Sorry for all these questions, but since you were willing to let us know of your expertise, I am all the more fascinated now with the subject.

Hey there.

Wow, you really are an 'EnthralledFan' aren't you.

Ok in answer to your questions;

1/ My clients are in a deeply relaxed state ... imagine it like a car engine just ticking over but not revving-up. Once I've taken them through that part of the process I begin to ask them questions. Initially things like are you male/female ... what are you wearing ... describe your home ... family etc etc etc. Depending on the age that they've gone into the memories at, I will ask them to recall a significant memory from their childhood. Then we move forward to another important event/phase of their revisited lifetime. Eventually I guide them up to the point of their death and ask what illness/injury is causing their death (quite often this can be the cause of a problem in their current lifetime eg; someone who suffers with respiratory problems (asthma), may remember that they had died by hanging or in an accident where they had been crushed ... something where their breath was restricted.

2/ Most people only recall the memories of one lifetime during a session but I always ask after they have reached the point of their death if problems that have cropped-up during the session have occurred in any other lifetime. If they respond with a yes, they automatically start to tell me about it without a break. Two is the most I've ever done in one session.

3/ I've not had any famous people persay, but I did have a woman who recalled being a man who was the personal aide of Akhanaten (the Egyptian Pharaoh who was father of Tutankhamun), so famous by default I suppose.

4/ Most interesting ... ummm that's a toughy ... every single one is fascinating in it's own way. Couple that stand out were;

(i) a guy who came to me just out of curiosity, convinced that he'd been a Celtic Warrior, because he'd always been drawn to the history. He responded to my questions very easily with great detail ... but I soon realized he was describing a lifetime he'd had as a North American beaver-trapper. His recall was one of the most detailed I've ever heard but when we'd finished he was bitterly disappointed that he hadn't been a warrior bless him. But it proves that even though he'd come with conscious expectations ... the memories that held the most significance to his present life came through to provide understanding ... even though he hadn't come for the theraputic value of regression. Even people who think it's just their imagination creating a story can have the same beneficial results.

(ii) another guy recalled being a Viking. The fact that he was homosexual meant that he was made to live on the edge of the settlement on his own as an outcast. His life was very sad and eventually he took himself off into the snowy wastelands where he died of hypothermia. When we were done I had to put the hearter on full because his feet were like blocks of ice. He literally had his feet right on the heater for about half an hour before he felt warmth returning to him, whilst I was sweating cobbs ... it was a hot July day! In this lifetime he hated being on his own.

5/ Follow-ups. Occasionally when I get the chanse. One lady came to me with a phobia of birds. The fact that she lived in a city with a large pigeon population made even a simple shopping trip miserable. She also had two young sons and was worried that she might pass her irrational fear onto them. During her first session she recalled a lifetime as an 8yr old slave girl named Tilly, who lived with her parents on a plantation in a place she called Charlestown. Her father would take her with him to watch the cockfights that were held in one of the old barns, as a treat ... her words not mine. At one of these gatherings one of the birds had leapt up in a flurry of squarks and feathers and lacerated her face with it's spurs. She had carried the physical scars through that lifetime and the psychological scars throught to this one. After a couple more sessions I told her I was going to place several sealed jars on the table, with different coloured feathers inside whilst we had a coffe and chat. Imagine her surprise when, by the end of the session she was nonchantly handling the jars, without any prompting from me. A month after she'd gone back home she wrote to tell me she'd taken her boys to the local park and fed the ducks. Now that might not seem like a big deal to you and me ... but it meant a hell of a lot to her and the way she lived her life.

Phew ! I don't think I forgot any of your questions hope that helps. Woody

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Your clients are very lucky to find you, as it seems you not only enjoy doing the regressions, but also care very much about them. Hopefully jinj got some useful information out my questions and your answers. I have to admit, I am now very curious and would like very much to have a regression session also. I am more interested in finding out what I carried over from past lives into this one, than who I was. What you had to say about the woman who was afraid of birds, do to a past life was very endearing and I appreciate your sharing. I hope the guy with cold feet found some benefit as well!

I would love to do this sometime. I have always believed that I was a soldier in WWII, European theater. Ever since I was a kid, I have always been enthralled with WWII but only the war in Europe. The war in the pacific has never really interested me which I find very odd.
The other period that I am drawn to is Feudal Japan which based on my WWII interests is kinda confusing, lol

i was meditating once and i guess i wanted to see my past life...well the image of a person wearing like a red silk thing with like gold and he was with this girl who was i think wearing like the same thing...i think they were some kind of royalty but i dunno i think my mind was just making up that image...

this is what the thing they were wearing looked like

so maybe i was a hindu/indian royal guy, other than that i dunno

Hey there Enthralled Fan,

I'm pleased you (and anyone else with an interest), found the info interesting. I think I'm so passionate about it because of my own experiences ... the first one (I've recalled 4 very detailed lifetime so far - spontaneously), really was a life changing experience because everything I'd encountered up to that point, suddenly made perfect sense.

And I tend to get very protective of people who are just starting to investigate any branch of the esoteric/paramormal/pagan, because there are so many con-artists out there ... it really p***** me off ... oops, there I go again
just can't help myself.

I seem to have made it my mission in life to project the reality at the core of all things 'different'. just to try and restore the balance where it's been whipped-up into a dramatical frenzy by the type of people who try to keep the knowledge of such things to themselves ... usually because they think it add's to their mystique and power.

That's why price is irrelevent to me because everyone has the right to develop ... if they choose to. Jeez I do go on don't I ?

I think I might start a thread about regression and how my first time came about. See if people can relate to it and throw it open to any questions ... don't want to hi-jack this thread. Woody.

It's quite possible that you glimpsed a past-life during your meditation ... certainly if you hadn't been reading/watching a film about Hindu royalty, in the 24hrs before your meditation (if you had it was most likely a residue image). I hold a couple of meditation courses throughout the year ... to teach people different medatitive techniques. One of the modules that I include is visiting a past-life. Because it's a group thing and quite condensed, most of the people just get little snap-shot images like the one you had.

I've had a couple myself ... one is the image of a Mongolian Warlord racing across a desolate looking plain on horseback, with about a dozen me behind him. I have no more detail, other than this one image but I know it was me ... I could smell the horses and feel the wind burning my face because we were riding so fast. The second one I saw myself as a blonde-haired man in the cockpit of a WW2 fighter plane. I felt the plane get hit and had a nauseus sensation in the pit of my stomach as it spiraled down to earth.

The mind and soul/psyche (call it what you will), really are amazing things aren't they ... and we still know so little about them.

Hi, I have been wanting to get a regression done really bad but I can't afford to have one done at this time in my life. Maybe one day I will be able to.

Woody, the method that you use and your experiences makes me wonder if perhaps you are see'ing fragments left over from a spirit realm and not a past life of your own. Could this be possible? And if not why?

I wish you lived in my hometown
I would love to come over and get a past life regression done.
