Past Life Regression Therapy - what is it?
Past life regression therapy can help us to make sense of moments like these…
You come to a new place or town and feel very familiar with it. You may even feel that you recognise the surroundings, the streets and buildings, and can find your way around with ease. You meet someone for the first time, yet they feel strangely familiar as if you have known each other for a long time. You take up a new hobby or activity and take to it like a duck to water, to everyone’s amazement including your own. We often describe such experiences as déjà vu, when we feel that a new experience is somehow rather familiar to us, as if it had happened to us before.
Many cultures, spiritual practices and religions talk about reincarnation – returning to this world to resolve issues, transform, learn and grow so as to progress in our spiritual evolution. It is believed that when we reincarnate we often do so around many of the same souls, so as to continue to work on unresolved issues to bring about their healing. We may enter into relationships with them; they can be members of our family, our friends or even our colleagues. When we struggle with something or there are some blocks and repeating patterns in our lives, there may be a specific lesson that needs to be learned in that lifetime. It may be that we need to learn to stand up for ourselves, to be more compassionate or even just to trust in our own abilities. Each lifetime comes with different lessons that are necessary for our spiritual evolution.
I was introduced to and became interested in past life regression through the work of Dr Brian Weiss some years ago.
We can journey into the past, beyond this life time into previous life times. Whether you believe in past lives or not is not important. What is important is your intention to discover, clear and heal something that continues to hold you back in your life today.
The subconscious mind works in pictures, images and feelings and does not recognise truth from fantasy. Even if you believe that what you call to mind is only imagined, it may offer an insight into a problem affecting you today. Calling it to the surface, experiencing it and acknowledging it can help change how you feel and, hence, how you approach life from that point onward.
Another possible explanation – ancestral memories
Another explanation for past life memories could be that we have access to the memories of our ancestors. It has been proven by the new field of epigenetics that ancestral memories can affect and change the gene memory in our bodies. Therefore, the experiences of our ancestors can have a direct influence on our lives even though we may have never met them in person. This was considered heresy in academia only 10 years ago, but now there’s an growing body of evidence to confirm it. For example, the traumatic experience of famine will be imprinted in the gene memory and can still influence descendants three generations later, resulting in all sorts of health issues.
There was a fascinating BBC documentary, The Ghost In Our Genes, made on the subject, which you may like to watch.
What will happen at your past life regression therapy session?
At the beginning of the session, after the trance is induced, I always ask that only information that is safe, beneficial, appropriate and most healing for the client is brought to the surface. In addition, I ask that only information that they will be able to handle is accessed, thus providing a safety net for the client. Every session is different and unique to each client. For some, the sessions can be very detailed and visual, while for others it can be less so and more about the feelings they experience.
While looking back into past lives can be illuminating and exciting, it is important to remember that the life that matters the most is our current life. We can look into past lives to see where we have been, and to recall experiences that may correspond with and inform our experiences in this life. That way we can see what wisdom and insights from previous lives can be applied to the current life in a beneficial manner.
The only valid confirmation of anything is one’s own experience. If what you have read so far has resonated with you and has sparked your curiosity, or even if you just have any questions about it, please get in touch so that we can discuss it further.
Though not for everyone, past life regression can be a profound healing experience.
Past life regression case study:
Daniel* came to see me because he had anger issues and also went through periods of binge drinking. When under the influence of alcohol, he could easily lose his temper and get into fights with strangers. He was interested in past life regression as he believed that the answer to his problems could lie in his past.
He regressed back to a lifetime where he was a Knight Templar. During the Crusades he killed a lot of people. He also lost an only child and he felt tremendous anger toward the perpetrator as this had ruined his home life and his marriage, which used to provide a haven from the Crusades. He would go onto battlefields full of hatred and anger. He used alcohol to numb his anger and pain.
The session afforded for better understanding and deep healing. A couple of weeks after the session he said that he ‘felt unknown inner peace just after first session and can only say that facing problems from the past life brought both healing and relief in the current life.’
*The name has been changed to protect the privacy of the client and the case study was used with his permission. As a therapist I always follow the code of conduct and respect my clients’ privacy and confidentiality.
What is past life regression therapy useful for?:
A lot of people are interested in this type of therapy out of curiosity. However, it is a form of therapy and it has been shown to be helpful in dealing with a number of issues* such as:
- Overcoming problems like obesity and substance abuse
- Treatment of pain, especially musculoskeletal pain
- Headaches and migraines that do not respond to medication
- Various phobias
- Anger issues
It can also open the mind to mystical experiences. To sum up, it focuses on healing the whole person, body and mind.

A book you might be interested in
If you are interested in the subject of past life regression, I recommend a book by one of the most eminent professionals in this field, the psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss – Many Lives, Many Masters. It is considered a classic work in the field. Even if you do not believe in the subject of past life regression, the book allows for questioning and the examining of one’s beliefs and opinions.
Video: The boy who lived before
Below is a documentary about a boy called Cameron. Ever since he could talk, Cameron has been telling stories of his life on Barra, a remote island in the Outer Hebrides, some 220 miles from his current home in Glasgow. He describes in detail his childhood on the island: the white house he lived in, the black-and-white dog he walked on the beach. He talks about his mother, seven siblings and his father, Shane Robertson, who died when he was run over by a car. Nothing strange about all that. Except the fact that Cameron is only five years old now; his memories seem to be of a former life. Everyone who comes across Cameron is skeptical, but his stories are just so consistent. He exhibits a strong emotional attachment to his ‘Barra mum’ which concerns his mother. She decides to contact professionals to help her investigate his claims.
