Did you see Oprah’s May 12, 2008, show on hypnosis and past life regression? Pretty interesting! There has been a lot of interest and controversy about Past Lives lately. Even some medical doctors are getting in on this powerful, healing therapy. One in particular is Brian Weiss MD. who wrote Many Lives, Many Masters. While I do some past life regression, I always tell clients that I do not know if there are past lives or not – as a Christian, I really don’t think so, but honestly, I do not care. The argument of whether there are past lives or not really makes no difference to me. To me, what is important is that if at an unconscious level we have labeled something as a past life experience, then we need to deal with the emotions attached to it.

I have had throat issues most of my life – I have never had my tonsils out – don’t know if that is an issue or not, but swallowing can be difficult for me at times and I am often hoarse when I speak. Several years ago in a hypnotherapy session, I went back several past lives (again, I do not believe that I have lived in any past lives).  In this regression, I was an Ojibwe child about 5 years old (also about the same age that I was actually sexually abused). In this past life regression, I was shot in the throat with an arrow by a Sioux. Was this real? I doubt it, to me what was important is that I deal with the emotions that were involved – the data of the event is irrelevant and there is no way to prove the reality of the event or the great story fictional story of my imagination.

We sure don’t know why, but we do know that Past Life Regression has a profound effect on some people’s lives. Many illnesses somehow miraculously clear up after a client finds a past life that held that same trauma. I have experienced a client releasing negative  emotions and limiting decisions and healing them selves from cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and even weight loss through past life regression.

Here is what I do know, it is not my job to judge someone’s experience. We are taught in the Bible to not judge – that is not my job. I do know that hypnotherapy is a powerful God given tool for healing the past, real or imagined.
