The other week, my friend sat down with me over lunch and told me that he’d just had a past life regression session with a local healer.
“Past life what?” I asked.
He then explained that past life regressions allow you to "visit" your past lives through a combination of deep relaxation and hypnotherapy. They provide deep insights into the root of who we really are, so we can more effectively navigate the life we are currently living.
As someone who was raised Mormon, all of this was new to me. I'd heard about reincarnation but had never thought about approaching it in such a tangible, direct way. Over the past several years, though, I'd opened myself up to learning about different religions and exploring my own spirituality, so I decided to give it a shot and schedule an appointment with the healer my friend had recommended.
I was a tad skeptical walking into the session, but the healer immediately put me at ease with her beautiful, kind energy. During the first part of our three-hour session, she asked questions to get to know me and then guided me into a very deep state of relaxation. Once my eyes were closed and I was totally relaxed, she had me subconsciously enter what is known as the "hall of records," where I saw many doors.
I immediately felt drawn to the third door and found a serene landscape behind it. Once I approached this space mentally, the healer asked me to describe myself. I felt the words flow out freely, with more specificity and emotion than I'd ever been able to conjure before. She spent the next couple of hours guiding me through various scenes from my past life—each one filled with vivid detail.
The experience rocked me down to the core, and I vibrated for days afterward. Here are some take-aways from my first past life regression session:
