The young man was born and raised in Canada but when walking through Jaipur, a city 300 kilometres southwest of New Delhi, became confused, saying, "This is the place, I was here before," the doctor recalls. Then 12 years old, he began to describe in detail the inside of a house where he had supposedly lived, and offered up other details of a life there. He stated that he had died at age 29 of a hole in the heart -- the lay term for a common congenital defect --had three brothers and a sister, and that his name had been Ram. Locals in the neighbourhood of Jaipur verified details about the house and said they recalled a family matching the boy's description, including a man named Ram, who lived there about 30 years earlier, said Dr. Gadit. The youth continued to be "haunted" by the memories after the family got home to St. John's. "It was a frightening experience for him.... The parents started appearing like aliens to him," said the psychiatrist, a professor at the Memorial University of Newfoundland medical school. The recollections were vivid but a battery of tests revealed no recognizable psychiatric condition. "He did not appear to be a person who had an altered level of consciousness or disorientation," said Dr. Gadit. Reluctant to prescribe medication for a condition he could not diagnose, he used psycotherapy, telling the boy that he might have had a previous life, but should now "forget about the past and live in the present." The approach seemed to work and the youth, whose family declined to comment for this story, returned to school and a relatively normal life, though he continued to have the memories, indicating to the doctor that he kept them to himself to avoid upsetting others. Dr. Gadit said the case did not convince him that reincarnation occurs, but left him open to the possibility. "There are so many things to discover in the world."

I think it would be very confusing to remember parts of past lives. Imagine how unsettling it might be to remember dying, or to recollect being the opposite gender in a previous life?

Did you feel like you were in a conscious-like state while being regressed or as if you had fallen asleep? Like snapping out of a deep deep trance? I'm just asking because I had one about a month ago and I'm just wondering if anyones technique is different.
