Are Past Lives Real? The Truth About Past-Life Regression


Last Updated on December 6, 2021

Have you encountered something that rings a bell? But while it seems familiar, you don’t exactly know why it’s familiar.

If you have experienced this “familiar feeling that you can’t explain“, then you know it’s almost impossible to just carry on with your life and not think about it.

With that said, it’s a good idea to dig into this subject. To help you out, let’s talk about past lives, past-life regression therapy, and everything else concerning it in this article.

The concept of past lives

The concept of past lives or a previous life acknowledges the role of the past in a person’s future. It follows that every person has a previous existence and their spirit lives on even after their physical body expires.

If there are things you couldn’t explain, it’s probably tied to your past. An example is when you meet a random person — a virtual stranger — you have an inexplicable attraction to.

“I feel like I’ve known you my entire life,” is a saying associated with this.

Chances are, you may feel like you know someone so well because you actually do. It’s probable they’re from your real previous life and actual memories. They may also be an integral character in your past life. They’re probably your spouse, a close friend or family member, or a business partner.

How does past-life regression therapy work?

Past-life regression therapy is carried out through hypnosis. For this reason, it’s also often called hypnotic past-life regression healing. It works by connecting you to your past life and helping you recover your past life memories. 

It can help you release emotions and experiences (negative or positive ones) that don’t serve you anymore. It can also help you come to terms with a lingering physical pain you can’t understand.

Usually, if someone goes to regression therapy, they’re doing it as a last resort. If medical treatment and other conventional approaches haven’t worked for them, it provides them hope. For past-life regression therapy to be a common “last choice” as a treatment option isn’t surprising. But it’s quite unfair given how helpful it has been for many people.

Let’s dig deeper into the subject. Here are common reasons people go to therapy:

  • Better self-awareness – They want to learn more about themselves. They want to understand what element in their previous lives influencs their current behavior.
  • Solutions to internal struggles – They’d hear a voice within that wants to get released. They turn to therapists to help them with it.
  • Answer to a persistent problem – They’re dealing with “unfixable” problems or situations they can’t comprehend. They turn to a therapist to tell them what to do.

Typically, what happens during a session depends on a particular regression therapist. Unless designed specifically for a patient, each session lasts for about two hours.

The process starts with past-life regression therapists taking measures to make the patient feel comfortable. The common methods include inviting a patient to lie down on a sofa, turning up the air-conditioning system, and putting on ambient sounds.

Once a patient is in a trance-like state, the therapist starts to guide them into recovering their old memories. They’ll also encourage to express any ill feelings about their past or any past-life regressions. They’ll use repetition and verbal cues — basically any acceptable technique — for assistance.

Who benefits the most from past-life regression therapy? 

Who benefits the most from past-life regression therapy? 

The demographic that can benefit the most from past-life regression therapy are working adults around the ages of 25 and 35. They’re at a time when they need wise advice. At their life stage, they’re in the position to make foundational decisions or decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

Often, their foundational decisions will revolve around these subjects:

  • Careers – Their professional position (financially) supports their lifestyle. They need to make the decision if it’s what they want to do for the rest of their lives.
  • Place of long-time residence – Their home is instrumental to the quality of their lives moving forward. They need to make sure it’s near the activity centers their life will revolve around.
  • Life quality –  Whether they have a good life quality is up to them. They need to make sound fundamental decisions (like the choice of friends, spouse, and investments) that can help them inch closer to the life they want.

How can past-life regression therapy benefit a person’s future?

In the case of a working adult, past-life regression therapy can help them see things (more) clearly. And as mentioned, the spiritual benefits of the practice can encourage them to make sound decisions and decrease the chances of them making regrettable life-long decisions.

Here’s a closer look at regression therapy’s benefits for a person’s future:

  • Sharpened focus – Because they can see their life from a good perspective, they can focus on what matters more for themselves in the long run. They can pour all their personal resources into likable future versions of themselves.
  • Well-sorted priorities – Because they took a trip to see themselves in their past lives, they don’t have any trouble weighing the value of things in their current lives. They can easily understand that sometimes they need to delay gratification for a much better reward.
  • Admirable time management skills – As a result, they tend to have a lot of time on their hands. Because their focus and priorities are in line, they’re less stressed and more energetic.

For example, they’re about to make a decision involving the quality of life they want to have. While they want to live a modest lifestyle and travel the world, they’re having second thoughts about leaving their loved ones behind. 

If they’re experiencing inexplicable feelings of anxiety, they can consult with a past-life regression therapist to help them make a solid decision.

Notably, the therapist can help them get to the bottom of their hesitation. Then they will make the decision with confidence.

Can past-life regression therapy work for everyone?

Yes, past-life regression therapy can work for everyone. But for anyone to benefit from it, they must fully believe in its concept. This was brought to light because there are some people who despite wanting to experience the positive benefits, they’re doubtful of the spiritual practice or the therapist’s role.

They ask questions like:

  • “Isn’t it just like having a dream?”
  • “How will the past — an unchangeable variable — even put things in perspective?”
  • “Can’t I just recount my past memories by myself?”

Half-heartedly going to past-life therapy isn’t recommended. Its therapeutic effects are directed to a patient through their willpower — and much of it has to do with a person’s ability to access their memories. The therapist’s essential role is to provide guidance and ensure they don’t access unhelpful memories.

If they don’t enter past-life therapy voluntarily, it’s better for them to pass up the opportunity. They could also wait until they’re mentally prepared to dive into it. It’s counter-effective to force or coerce them to seek the help of a past-life therapist if they’re not willing to cooperate.

Past-life regression therapy according to a patient

Past-life regression therapy according to a patient

One patient, Michelle Darrisaw, as she recounted on Oprah Daily, has past-life regression therapy to thank for her rediscovered love for books. She found it was a medium that allowed her to acknowledge how relaxing it was to be surrounded by some things.

During her session with a past-life regression therapist (certified), Ann Barham, she ended up envisioning a girl who loved books. In her subconscious, she couldn’t help but admire the girl who had books everywhere — her apartment was full of it.

As the regression therapist explained to Michelle Darrisaw, she was that girl in her previous life. She realized how calm and collected the girl was. Like most young children, the girl was just happy. What struck her is that even though she can’t explain it, she could relate to the girl.

When she “woke up” from her hypnotized state, she yearned for the calmness of the girl who was in her vision — who was her in her previous life. Aware as ever, she knew she had to be that calm, too. And so, she began making changes to build the quality of life she dreamt of.

How to get in touch with your past life in your own way

A past-life regression therapist will always be there for you, and they could help you achieve great heights with past-life regression therapy. To make the most out of it, though, it’s advisable to tap into your previous life or past lives on your own.

Here are best practices:

  • Acknowledge your dreams – Dreamt of being a policeman, firefighter, or surgeon? Especially if dreams are recurring, it’s a sign you had a history of saving people in your previous lives.
  • Acknowledge clues – If you regularly encounter objects that aren’t supposed to be in your way, those objects may hold significance.
  • Ask for guidance – If you pray or meditate, you need to be expressive of the intent. For example, include something like “help me get in touch with my past” during your meditation.

Final thoughts: Who were you in your previous life?

“Past is past,” as the classic saying goes.

While you can’t change your past or who you were in your previous lives, you can acknowledge your feelings about it. Explore anything you feel is unresolved.

It’s your spirit’s way of telling you something is holding you back. Moving forward in life isn’t always easy. But it’s the practical thing to do. And by resolving whatever’s holding you back, it’s going to be less challenging.
