Theories of Past Life Regression/Reincarnation

T

hroughout time people from different civilisations and from all strata’s of society have reported strange experiences when they have recounted seeing people, places and events through the eyes of another individual, and from times before they were born.

Some of these experiences have occurred in hypnosis, whilst others have arisen during normal consciousness.

Throughout time people from different civilisations and from all strata’s of society have reported strange experiences when they have recounted seeing people, places and events through the eyes of another individual, and from times before they were born.

Some of these experiences have occurred in hypnosis, whilst others have arisen during normal consciousness.

Various explanations have been offered to account for such experiences. Whilst we do not subscribe to or endorse any particular theory we offer them so that each reader can form their own view.

So what are the theories on offer?

Reincarnation is genuine

The first theory suggests that our unconscious mind holds a complete record of our memories in our current lifetime and also the memories of previous lives. Through regression we are going back into a past life incarnation that we had on earth prior to our current existence.

There are many instances whereby information retrieved during a Past Life Regression has been vigorously scrutinised and found to accurately reflect an individual’s life and environment. This concept underpins the reincarnation theory, that we live many lives and keep reincarnating in order to experience and evolve. The reincarnation theory incorporates other mystical ideas such as karma, life lessons, and progression along astral planes to explain why a soul returns.

Inherited memory

Another theory is that we regress back into the memory of a past ancestor, back into our grandparents, great-great grandparents, and so on down through the generations. Through the human gene pool we inherit genetic memories – such as the instinct to procreate, the instinct to nurture children and so on. An example that supports genetic memory is the sheepdog that has never had contact with sheep will naturally herd them and many other animals upon being introduced to them.

Carl Jung postulated the theory of ‘The Collective Unconscious’ which he believed was part of the evolutionary process which held the primordial images (existing since the beginning of time) we had inherited from our ancestral past. Subscribers to this theory believe we inherit the genetic memories and personality traits through the DNA of our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents’ and so on going back generation after generation.

Soul memory

Some believe that Past Life Regression is primarily an advanced form of mediumship, and that the past life memories we recall are those of someone who has actually lived a life on earth, but whom we are in contact with spiritually, via hypnosis.

This notion sits comfortably with the Spiritualist concept of communicating with the ‘spirits of the dead’ who continue to live in another state or dimension.

Product of the imagination

Another theory is that the experiences recounted during a Past Life Regression are merely figments of a person’s imagination, but nonetheless experienced as real. We all have access to television, cinema, plays, books, lessons in history and stories told to us by our parents and grandparents and during hypnosis the imagination uses such knowledge to create plausible lives.

Some stories related by clients are believed to be metaphors created by the subconscious mind in order to explain current impasses that clients may be experiencing in their life, providing insight and possible solutions.

Which one is yours?

A number of theories then; which one is yours?

Feel free to reflect on them before coming to your own conclusion.

From an objective therapist’s viewpoint it does not really matter what your belief or theory is. Past Life Regression can be very beneficial and therapeutic. It can help you to overcome some obstacles that you may have been struggling to find answers to, as your unconscious mind uses the scenarios as a way of dealing with these issues to remove blocks.

Past Life Regression can be interesting and fun

Regression to a past life can be very interesting and fun, but you never know what you might find, and what experience you might go back into. Everything will be kept safe and calm so that you have a good experience, and the session will be recorded so that if something interesting comes up, you might use the information to research your past life in order to establish if you really did live in a time gone by.

And you can rest assured that no ‘false memories’ will be implanted into your mind! Past Life Regression uses a series of ‘clean’ questions to gather information, and does not involve suggestion to experience anything other than what your mind is presenting, and what your mind recalls.

DISCLAIMER

A Past Life Regression experience will vary greatly from person to person according to expectations, state of mind and situation etc. No Past Life Regression practitioner can guarantee 100% success. Most people will easily go into a past life, but there are a few who are unable to (or unwilling) due to fear, religious beliefs or medication. Of course it may simply be the case that they may not have had a previous life. Please be wary of any practitioner that claims 100% success rate. Full client commitment is important.
