“One reason I love what I do is that I still get surprised at what comes up in a session, no matter how much I think I know.” As Clara was getting ready to settle into the hypnosis part of our session, for past life regression, I said to her, “For example, someone would come to see me for fear of water, it’s easy to assume that this person was drowned to death in another lifetime; or someone has a fear of height, it’s easy to assume this person died in another life from falling. Many times it was so, but sometimes it was not so, and then when the regression ends, it would all make sense, in a very different way.”
On Tomoko’s way out, I mentioned to her, “As you know, since you found me online, I sometimes write about my cases on my blog, when I have time to do so. I feel your story is write-worthy. Do I have your permission to write about your story? There won’t be…”
“Yes yes yes, of course.” Tomoko didn’t let me finish. I meant to say, “There won’t be any identifiable information on my blog.”
She went on, “You can write anything about it. Actually, I will write about it myself!”
Valentine’s Day is a time of love, a time when people express their love to one another. It can also sometimes be when they reflect on the relationship they have or would like to have. A common question people often ask themselves is “how much am I loved in a relationship?” But is this a useful question? Following are two little stories that that offer some perspective.
My hypnotherapy practice tagline is “Access Your Inner Wisdom”. It’s based on the fact that we all have the inner solutions and wisdom to tap into.
A person can come into my practice presenting an issue, according to their conscious mind, like changing a habit, tackling an emotion, resolving a pattern… that is perceived from the conscious mind, which thinks, analyzes, rationalizes, and has short-term memories.
They come to see a hypnotherapist because they believe to find the cause of the problem, or solution, they need to go inside to their subconscious mind – the mind that created the problem and holds the solution.
Chelsea is an illustrator. She recently had a very “terrible breakup” that “triggered her major depression and anxiety attacks”. She cried everyday for two months. She couldn’t continue working so she took a whole month off to heal, so that she could function.
Wanda told me she felt blocked and therefore stuck in life, even though she has multiple talents and interests. She has done a lot of inner work, including some “spiritual work deep into the self”, where she found some emotional triggers. She went to see a counsellor who used the emotional triggers to attempt to take her back in time…
That was when Wanda “hit a wall” – “I couldn’t get any further. I couldn’t get past the wall.” She told me.
A wall! “How do you know there was a wall?” I asked Wanda. My alarm went off. If there were nothing to hide, disallow, shame, or protect, there wouldn’t be any need for a wall.
Who’d think that I’d work on the New Year’s Day? No me. But I had forgotten to block my online calendar, which has become a public space online, for that day off. Or maybe I simply assumed that nobody would want to book a hypnotherapy session on this day, therefore didn’t bother.
Obviously that was not the case for Heather and Linda.
So it was too late. Surprise! I found that on the New Year’s Day, I had to work.
Both of them indicated that they wanted a Past Life Regression. So on this first day of a new year, before moving forward in time, two women want to go back, to view what they were.
I don’t have a TV set at home, but my life does not lack any stories. Doing past life regression, my work sometimes feels like watching a Hollywood drama movie, with all the plots, turns, emotions and surprising endings.
A drama in a past life regression session can be therapeutic. Sometimes it can be entertaining. Often times it is both.
Fanny’s is one of the cases. She is a very beautiful woman in her late twenties…
Lindsay arrived on time in the evening. And opened herself up quite immediately. There were many deaths in her life and she really wanted to find out why. She had a miscarriage, lost a son when he was 2 and half, three years ago she lost another son when he was 20, three months ago her husband Doug died. At the age of 50, she is half retired as a nurse. Facing so many deaths, she started to question life.
Lying on the couch, the moment Tania pops her big eyes wide open, she looks straight to the ceiling, and says from her lungs, “I KNOW YOU!”
Crystal clear words cut through the air. My heart trembles.
Tania goes on, “I know you. When we went to in-between-lives state and you asked me who I saw before I was born, I didn’t ‘see’ anyone. But when you were talking in the last bit, I remembered YOUR VOICE! That was the same voice that gave us a debriefing before a group of us were incarnated. I remember the voice. And that is you! “ Tania is excited. She sits up, and continues, “That voice. I know it! You told us it’s a tough place to live on the earth and to remember who we are. But you said it’s okay. You will find us. Oh my God!”
“Alright now, 1, 2, 3!” They stand up and switch. A very interesting thing happens. Lillian, as petite as she is, instantly open her eyes wide, and stretches her legs in a way that Diego often shows; while Diego curls up his long legs aside in a feminine way and looks at Lillian softly.
