these questions for me:
1) How do you find a good past life regression therapist? What kind of questions should I ask them before I choose them? How long should I expect them
to spend with me?
You could ask what the technique consists of, where they learned how to do it. Beyond that I don't know, its up to you. I'm very trusting, which has
a tendency to slap me now and then, but I feel i always end up where I need to be for better or worse. My experience with my past life regression
therapist I thought was a little sour after thinking about it later, but then I turned around.. like I guess its up to you and what you value and
expect to get out of it.
2) What is the process of the regression. How long does it take before you are under hyponosis and start to have past life recall? What if you cannot
be hypnotized? I have had tried hypnosis a few times and I have not gone into a hypnotic state. The induction however was only 15-20 min, maybe that
is not enough?
Yeah I hear ya.. I almost feel I need a lot longer... theres 2 sides to it... it was like I was consciously aware.. yet my eyes and body were heavy
and I could move them but I wasn't inclined to. It was like a light paralysis but still being consciously aware, with some enhanced subconscious
coming through but nothing like I read in the books such as "The Convoluted Universe" series, where it was clear these people were taken into a
very deep state.. as they'd be some random old ladies who never watched a sci-fi show in their life, spewing hyperdimensional concepts once under
the hypnosis... also when they'd come out of it they'd think they fell asleep.. for me it wasn't like that at all.
I've heard my room-mate say some pretty crazy interesting things while he was sleeping.. I wouldn't doubt that a deep delta mode would be good for
retreiving that kind of information..versus a very light hypnosis, which is what I felt I got.. it was like a light meditation. I wish I had an answer
other then that perhaps you need to be taken deeper, thats what I felt, and I should have spoken up more at the time and said..lady.. i'm doing all
the work here searching my subconscious, i could get up and walk around the room right now, i'm aware of where I am right now.
3) When the past life memories start to happen what form do they take?
Again, for me, it was like a light meditation but the visuals were enhanced. Picture being semi-dreaming.. it was like she sustained me in a theta
level... like drifting off to sleep where visuals and sounds become more enhanced... I just my imagination go where it wanted to and I did actually
see some interesting stuff.. I couldn't say if it was very accurate though.
4) How convinced are you that your past-life memory was a real memory and not a false memory you imagined under hypnosis?
I think it was 50/50.. Or it was real but I couldn't recall enough details. I know it was real because it reflected a prior life I had seen in some
very intense dreams when I was younger, and it felt very personal and legitamate at that time.
5) Did your past life regression help you understand your current life issues better and help you conquer previous problems?
Well.. she did all this other stuff on me which I could feel, that was pretty cool, like some energy work. I half think she didn't know what she was
talking about though. You know there is psychic and there's like me saying i'm psychic... I just don't say that... I know I can pick up on some
stuff and have it be accurate but its very hit and miss.. mostly miss.. I meditate.. but I'm not at that level where I feel I can access everything..
I can do tarot readings and have them be spot on accurate.. but still.. thats with the aid of symbols / triggers.. so for all I know she might not
have been far off from me. The good psychic's don't need hypnosis, they can just tell you. That's just my interpretation. I mean.. the psychic
part wasn't expected on their end for the hypnosis, but she used it as a selling point so I included the reference here. But it all comes down to
how you feel, what your intuition is saying.. and as trusting as I am.. I'm still on the fence of what she said she "fixed.".. or removed.
If anything, I took from the event, besides the negatives.. it was still an interesting experience and really opened me up to what my subconscious
could bring forth. I got a few flashes of other lives in there. She mostly focused on my early childhood though.. I think there was a lot of repressed
stuff and I instantly did feel very emotional about it.. yet my mind was so conscious... I guess I was expecting something deeper.
6) Can you do a self-past life regression? How?
Meditation.. and there are audio self-hypnosis files out there but I haven't tried them.
I don't know, honestly.. I've had some powerful 3rd eye experiences and its left me to realize I don't really care unless its relevant for that
point in my life.. and I always expect it to not have 100% accuracy... or even any for that matter... I just go by intuition of what comes forward..
try to feel its legitamacy and take from it what I can at the very least.. but never do I think its 100% accuarate.. or to be more precise.. FEEL its
that accurate.. I think if its a past life for instance, it should really have a feeling of familiarity.

Find someone who is willing to put in more then an hour and a half of time into it.. and ask them if they can take you to a sleep-like state.. turn
that conscious layer right off if you can.
I must say I don't think there's any way you could have made me think I was a chicken under that hypnosis... and I wasn't resisting it.. I was
trying to be open and let go of everything and be in a state of allowance.
I just didn't get what I expected, and no doubt you are worrying the same.
But its not so say I got nothing valueable out of it. It was actually very interesting and helpful.. I just was expecting something much more intense.
I wouldn't go to her again, but i'd deffinately do it again with someone else.
Well thats my experience with a past life regressionist.
