Past Life Influences Present Life

What Can Past Life Regression Do for Us?  

How Do Past and Parallel Lives Influence Current Life

Unity Church Workshop

Regression therapy brings to light the body of experiences the soul has traversed throughout its eternal life journey as an incarnated being.

Present life recall or regression deals with present life trauma and its effects on your life today. Birth regression treats pre and peri-natal experiences particularly life patterns established and set up intrauterine as gestational adaptations.  Past life therapy seeks to heal present life conflicts which stem from traumatic events in prior lifetimes.

In the clinical framework of reincarnation, the being or spirit, is eternal. As part of the spiritual journey, many beings choose to incarnate in the earth plane; that is, to take on the form of a physical human body. In the course of lifetimes of human interaction, the being accumulates mental, emotional, and physical residue, which is carried from lifetime to lifetime influencing the person’s existence. Regression Therapy is about identifying and removing these residues so that the person may be fully present in the moment and fully free to make decisions based solely on current lifetime information.

The subconscious mind contains the memory of everything a person has ever perceived and experienced. Each perception and every experience is recorded in the memory, including biographical material from this life, the birth and pre-natal period, other lifetimes, and the non-physical experiences between lives.

The memory bank includes the perceptions of every past event; the surrounding circumstances and conditions; all physical and sensory input, including subliminally received data; the thoughts, emotions, feelings, and perceptions associated with the event. There also seems to be awareness of the thoughts of other people involved in these past incidents, perhaps transmitted telepathically. The memories also carry the misperceptions and misinterpretations of the event and must be removed in order to prevent these erroneous conclusions from functioning as operating beliefs in the present life.

The mind, while receiving the present and immediate perceptions of the senses is constantly alert to real or imagined threats to survival, based on and compared with past experience. This means that every adult interaction, every childhood event, every pre-natal experience is recorded and compared for validity at a subconscious level. The mind is living in the past in a very real sense. In this way a person experiences selective hearing and seeing as well as selective memory. Once a memory is triggered the person no longer hears anything that is being said but is automatically and often unconsciously regressed to the time frame of the triggered event. Thus suspended in a less than mature adult age frame they respond from the developmental stage they are currently functioning in, usually the childhood stage the trauma or upset occurred in. This is confusing to the regressed person as well as the adult interacting with them. 

Using Regression Therapy to regress the person to the time frame of the childhood trauma and the reframing and removal thereof, these triggers disappear and cease to interrupt the smooth flow of adult rationality thus taking with them lifelong dysfunctional patterns.

Unfortunately, the more unpleasant the experience or painful the emotion, the stronger the memory trace. Any experienced traumatic event triggers the reaction termed the traumatic event sequence. Perceptions of each succeeding moment of any event are registered in the conscious mind then recorded in the memory banks or the subconscious mind. These perceptions are usually misperceptions. There is a distorted perception of the reality of a situation. It is this distortion which becomes embedded in the subconscious and colors future similar experiences.

It is never the memory of what happens to a person that remains in the memory bank that has the lasting effect. It is what that person thinks, feels, decides, remembers, and believes about the event. Their attitude toward it at the time of occurrence determines future predispositions for reactions or for responses, reactions being triggered emotional sequences and responses being a rational approach toward the event.

It is from these misperceptions that we form the false beliefs which become the basis for the creation of unwanted random events and behavior patterns in our lives. This   error consciousness creates the suffering we mistakenly attribute to others or to God. The collection of unexamined data stored in your subconscious mind is today called your perceptual reality and is responsible for the bias from which each person individually perceives the world around them.  External data is not actually   perceived just as it is without going through the critical faculties of judgements and labeling thus we are responding to our own beliefs about the event not the event.  In addition there are the pre-established unconscious filters such as love, hate, fear, and hostility sourcing from the perceptual reality itself coloring our internalization of the event.  Both of these factors create an involuntary response to the data rather than experiencing the data itself. Thus having been erroneously programmed into the subconscious, your auto pilot, these misperceptions and skewed viewpoints automatically keep creating what they think is the direction you want your life to proceed in and show up as. Almost all defense mechanisms stem from the erroneous conclusions and misperceptions stored in the unconscious that are triggered automatically and intercede with the correct interpretation of current sensory input.

Until you access and change this misaligned information, giving the subconscious a new direction to move toward, your life is on automatic create and stays the same. Your life can only change when you change the belief systems creating it and this includes both the conscious beliefs and the subconscious beliefs. Once located, clients are guided through both Cognitive and Emotional Deletion Protocols to remove programs, beliefs, psychic trauma, emotional blocks, and identities manifesting negatively in the current lifetime. All of these complexes are based on clusters of beliefs that support them and keep them in place. This is followed by a Reframe/Rescript of the issues healed. This is Regression Therapy.

Therapy seeks to unravel the distortions, clear the perceptions, and experiential understanding of the truth of what actually happened in past traumas. This leads to the healing of the residues. The truth leads to freedom. In the traumatic event sequence, the perceptions of the traumatic event are most often misperceptions. One function of the mind is to interpret incoming data. Since what it interprets is a misperception, such data is also distorted. The interpretations of the misperceptions then become misinterpretations of the misperceptions.

The mind reacts to these misinterpretations of the misperceptions by assessing the situation for potential danger or threat to its survival. Often the inappropriate reactions to the misinterpretations of the misperceptions lead to false decisions, assumptions, erroneous conclusions, and faulty judgements as well as impossible vows and promises, even threats relating to the event and the person involved.

The reactions can be mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual and in fact always involve the whole of man represented by these basic aspects. These ongoing reactions are at the core of the attitudes, prejudices, phobias, upsets, symptoms, conditions, and spiritual malaise that show up as presenting problems and conflicts in everyday life.

The inappropriate mental reactions to the misinterpretations and misperceptions lead to survival based decisions such as:

 I’ll never trust men. (women)
 I’ll never be beautiful again
 I’ll never get married.
 I’ll never be rich again.
 I am not good enough.
 I don’t deserve….
 If I tell the truth, I will die
 Life is not safe; I have to protect myself.

These decisions are made during emotional and/or physically traumatic episodes in this and prior lifetimes; episodes which involve a real or imagined threat to survival. Decisions become beliefs, and beliefs are embedded within the subconscious mind. These beliefs color and filter present day perceptions and distort interpretation of situations and interactions.  Decisions are the basis of prejudice. These decisions assumptions, conclusions, judgments, vows, and promises, form the mental residue, accumulating as part of the soul’s consciousness which can be carried for lifetimes, cluttering the mind and interfering with any present life event which re-stimulate any aspect of the earlier event.

The emotional reactions associated with past life events which are most often seen in therapy, involve emotional residues of the fear based emotions such as anger, resentment, revenge, fear, guilt, remorse; and distortions of love manifesting as jealousy, possessiveness, even violence.

The emotions may seem to have no basis in the present life, yet they are carried into many situations and projected onto other people involved in contemporary events. Phobias, existential fear and anger, intractable guilt, even depression and suicidal urges may fall into this category. Such emotional residues retained from traumatic past life events therefore unnecessarily, and inappropriately, contaminate the resulting emotional responses to present time events.

Projection is the process of casting onto another person the ideas or impulses which belong to oneself. It means giving objective reality to a subjective experience. A person who blames someone else for his own mistakes or feelings is scapegoating or using the psychological defense mechanism of projection. The process begins with denial of the aspect in self then projection of the unacknowledged aspect onto an unsuspecting person.  Denial of the shadow self leads further away from the authentic wholly integrated individuated self that is the basic goal of all mankind.

Physical reactions can be any symptom of illness, allergy, pain or discomfort and behaviors such as addiction, violence, obsessive-compulsive habits, or other unwanted conditions or behaviors. Such signs and symptoms and can indicate a reaction- repeated action-to a present life situation which is reminiscent of a trauma in a prior lifetime.

During the exploration of memories, through emotional channels rather than ideas and mental processes, the client accesses the subconscious mind or so-called right brain material.  Physical and emotional feelings and sensations associated with past incidents are felt, not thought. [In order to prevent retraumatization and re-imprinting, the suggestion is made to leave the emotions on a shelf outside the person before the session is started. I have found that the lessons to be learned from the event and the forgiveness and releasement can take place efficiently through the Releasement Process without the client incurring the drama and trauma of reliving the event repeatedly.
The left-brain function, the judgmental ego may attempt to block or interfere with the uncovered memory or even accessing that memory of an experience and its associated pain. Survival and blocking of pain are part of the function of the ego mind. The conscious mind often judges the subconscious material as unbelievable and censors the narrative. This interferes with the therapeutic process.  The effectiveness of being in a light trance state, the alpha state, is important here in setting aside the cognitive mind that is concerned about safety and appropriateness.

Forgiveness, even the willingness to forgive, signals the end of the unfinished business of the past. Denial, rationalization, and excuses are used by the ego partly to disavow responsibility. Blaming the other is false and misleading to the consciousness. Each being is responsible for his or her own life and their feelings, words and actions. Anger and blame are always false projections; no one can do it to you, there is no they out there separate from self.  Forgiveness releases the other person from the focus of the painful anti-life emotion. Forgiveness also releases the angry person from the chains of anger and blame.

When forgiveness is fully experienced, and realized, it becomes clear to a person that there really never was anything to forgive.  The misperceptions and misinterpretations of the behavior of the partner is what caused the pain.  It is not the partner who brings the feelings of disappointment, but rather the impossible expectations which lead to disappointment.

The ego mind does not easily accept anything other than the consensus reality, which does not include the spiritual realm.  [contrary to the usual ego blocks,] when one takes responsibility for one’s own part in any situation, blaming ceases, anger and resentment disappear, guilt and remorse are relieved. Forgiveness and love are the result.

Self forgiveness can free the person from the chains of self imposed guilt, remorse, regret, self blame, [and self sabotage.  It is primary to the accomplishment of future real time success in the present life.] The final forgiveness is self-forgiveness. The client must be willing to forgive himself for their part in the traumatic event of the past. It is the unresolved guilt and remorse which so often holds an emotional pattern in place through lifetimes.  The result is continued self punishment in the attempt to atone for the perceived wrongs. These emotions are always false; therefore this considerable suffering is unnecessary.

The act of forgiveness is extremely effective. The word forgive means to give away, [loosen the bounds, release,] without any residual burden of guilt or blame. After processing to resolution the conflicts with other persons in a past life event, whatever residue remains maybe released by forgiving, or at least being willing to forgive, the other person for their motivations, intentions and behaviors. It is not the ego but the higher power who forgives through a person. Willingness to forgive opens the door for this gift.

Healing the residue in the setting in which it first developed is a major aspect of past life therapy. This healing often manifests immediately in the present life circumstances. Another result of this therapy is the effect on people other than the client. Often, the conflict in a past life involves the same dynamic that exists within the present life conflicts and the characters in the past life situation are identifiable as persons involved in the present life situations. Their present conflicts and interpersonal tensions are frequently recognized and interpreted as issuing directly from the destructive patterns in earlier lifetimes.

Resolution of the conflicts in the past lifetime brings astonishing results in the form of change within the other person, the identified protagonist in the earlier lifetime, who might be hundreds of miles away at the time. [Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic field theory comes to mind.]

Almost any problem or conflict in the present life can be traced to a past life trauma. The therapist guides the exploration from the initial opening experience into an expansion of the awareness of the event, finally to a logical closure. The object is to eliminate the residues of the past, which interfere with the present life situation. The emotions of anger, fear, and sadness seem to leave the greatest residue.  Working through these fear-based emotions to the point of complete forgiveness can open the path to the full expression and experience of love, which is the final healing.

Resolution of the past life trauma and its residue can ease or eliminate the present life conflict. The objective of past life therapy is to eliminate the residue, or psychic energy patterns, retained from prior lifetime experience. This opens the way for a fuller experience of the present moment, the current lifetime.
