In this article I shall describe new processing techniques to handle regression memories that trigger past life traumas. Using these processes Increases the rate of Spontaneous Healing 100%.

Specific incidents in childhood reactivate or trigger latent past life experiences that belong to the inherited or karmic level of the complex presenting for therapy. These incidents carry a symbolic resonance with the specific past life trauma that they trigger.

Phobias and exaggerated reactions to loss or separation often prove to have such past life roots. Case histories indicate that children who have been abandoned by the same soul in other lives are more sensitive to separation anxiety. It’s as if they came back with this soul to see if this lifetime, that soul would honor their need for them.

Illnesses are another avenue that responds well to regression and the dispensing of the underlying causes. Children come in for chronic pain and illnesses which not only have a high medical response to the deletion/ reframe restructuring but have resisted diagnosis by traditional medicine. The sudden onset of persistent aches and pains are revealed to stem from past life injuries in the exact same spot. Birthmarks are thought to be prior evidence of other life physical traumas.

Using standard PLR techniques may make the re-living of a past life story can be even more painful and dramatic than the re-living of a current life experience. In order to avoid this, I do regression work differently than other regression therapist. The suggestion is made to the child to remain in observer mode watching a movie, rather than allowing themselves to get sucked into the drama in the first person, by remaining in reactive mode. Before we begin they are instructed to hang their emotions on a hook, or place them in a box on a table outside the regression episode. They are assured they are in control of the experience and can turn the “TV” knobs up or down or off which appeals to their growing sense of independence.

Additionally I never have the child recite the incident and their feelings repeatedly as most past life therapists do in order to flatten the emotions attached to the trauma. This re-imprints their psyche and re-traumatizes them to the point where they can get stuck in the past life incident due to the enormous in flooding of threatening feelings of impending danger, guilt, or shame. This only serves to decrease their rationality and functionality which is an already disabled in the young.

Instead, through the use of Cognitive and Emotional Restructuring Protocols I have created, the process can be re-experienced without reliving the severe disturbance thus eliminating the emotional and psychological impairment which comes up during the session and can become a long lasting effect. Have the client relive the incident from an emotional first person viewpoint only serves to exacerbate the PTSD they came in with.  Recalling and processing the past life incident during the session has the potential of resolving and dissipating the energy that has been bound to the complex since the originating incident no matter when it occurred. Using my deletion protocol, followed by a restructuring reframe, removes the trauma permanently so that there is no emotional resonance to trigger in the future.

A vague memory is there and lessons can be learned and stored to prevent repetitive life patterns continuing. Prior to bringing the client back to the present moment, they are given the opportunity to decide what wisdom they have gained in this past life experience, gain insight into how similar  patterns are being played out in their current life, and decide for themselves what knowledge would be most advantageous to carry into their present life. Never underestimate the wisdom and logic of a child. They often come up with simple but practical insights an adult may have missed.

Closure is accomplished via the reframe, forgiveness and releasement protocols, and restructuring life supporting programs.

Abandonment Issues in Childhood

As stated above, past life experiences often interface with childhood abandonment stories and separation issues. Age and developmental stage has a huge effect on how deeply the child is imprinted with the feelings of loss, aloneness, isolation, and abandonment. With loss comes grief and the necessary process of mourning. Un-mourned in the past or parallel life, is un-mourned in the life the child is experiencing in the moment and is always unhealthy and causes the sadness and anxiety to persist.

If handled correctly by the care-givers, the child will not experience shame or embarrassment for feeling their pain. Past life sessions give the child the opportunity to understand the healing inherent in completing unfinished grief, fragments of which have re-surfaced in their current lives. Regardless if the loss of the loved one is a temporary separation or a loss through death, these are opportunities to teach the child that they are always attached to their loved ones through the energy of their love where they live in their heart no matter what dimension the loved one is in.

Nightmares & Night Terrors  in Childhood

There are many cases where a relatively innocuous stimulus such as the sight of a military uniform, a scene from a movie, or the sound of a scream may trigger a past life memory in the child’s deep unconscious. The child’s intense reaction may be suggestive of trauma or childhood abuse, but often there has been no abuse in this lifetime. What has been triggered is a past life memory in the child’s subconscious mind which is the repository of that soul’s Akashic records. Such residues often constitute the stuff of night terrors as they are replayed in the imagination by the unconscious in an attempt to finish with the post traumatic stress connected to the other life incident. However, a satisfactory conclusion may not be reached without therapeutic intervention. Kindness and understanding versus labeling are crucial if the child is to move past these recurring terrors.

The use of Regression Therapy does not require a deep trance, is not maintained for long periods and is less foreign a concept to a child, depending on their family programming, often than to an adult.

If children are allowed to retain the universality of the knowledge they came in with, and the interconnectedness they may still feel to the other side, taking a trip to another “imagined’ life is not unusual for them. Children are fanciful and imaginative and believe in all manner of alter ego lives both for themselves, invisible friends, and for non physical entities like fairies and angels.
