READY FOR THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME?
Interested in discovering your past lives and currently looking into practitioners?
Several years ago I was a hypnotist and facilitated past life regressions (and was regressed myself several times).
I no longer practice, so I have no bias about the subject — but lots of info about it! And am happy to provide guidance for those looking into it.
Past life regression is a fascinating experience and, for many, can create positive change and healing in this lifetime.
It can shed light on your current emotional triggers, unexplained likes and dislikes, and quarks. But …
YOU NEED THE RIGHT PRACTITIONER
Like going on a jungle trek for the first time, a past life regression is a journey into entirely new territory — and super exciting since you have no idea what you’ll see. But it can also be a little nerve-wracking since you have no idea what you’ll see.
And like a jungle trek, you’ll want a well-trained guide who makes you feel at ease, ensures you don’t miss the incredible sites, and is prepared to help you through any obstacles or rough terrain you encounter.
In order to find that awesome guide, here are four crucial questions to ask a past life regression practitioner.
1: ARE YOU A CERTIFIED HYPNOTIST?
A spiritual practitioner may perform past life regression but, are they a certified hypnotist?
It’s simple to memorize a regression script. You don’t need hypnosis training to do that, and because of that, some practitioners aren’t certified hypnotists.
Instead of hypnosis, they may call it a past life journey or recall session.
A non-hypnotist may guide you on an incredible journey, but have they’ve been taught the ethics of hypnosis, all about the subconscious mind, and what to do if a deeply emotional or dramatic situation arises? Not likely.
If you simply want someone to tell you about your past lives, a psychic, intuitive, or Akashic Record reader can help you with that.
But if you’d like to re-experience the details of your past lives yourself, make sure they have hypnosis training.
2: DO YOU HELP FACILITATE CLOSURE FOR EACH PAST LIFE?
Gaining closure from a lifetime includes a process such as the practitioner …
- asking what piece of advice or information your past life self wants to share with your current self
- asking your current self to share a message with your past life self
- asking what you could do in your current life that would help to heal and to balance that past life memory
- suggesting you send love from your past life self to your current self and vice versa
- suggesting you send forgiveness from your past life self to your current self
- suggesting that you forgive, bless, and release everyone that you encountered in that lifetime.
This process will help to relieve emotional imprints, relivings, and negative ties with others from a past life, which could be blocking you from living out your highest potential in this lifetime.
Your practitioner will have their own unique style but should do at least a few similar things from the list above to help you gain closure.
If there’s something from the list you’d like them to add, mention it.
3: HOW DO YOU HANDLE DEEPLY EMOTIONAL MEMORIES?
If you ask your practitioner this question, they should explain that they have techniques they rely on if highly emotional memories arise.
A regression can sometimes be a very emotional experience, and you will likely see the conditions surrounding your death.
At the point of death during my own first past life regression, I was an Aztec or Mayan woman who was tied to a large, wooden, circular structure pointing towards the sun and strangled to death by two men while a large crowd watched.
In my current body, I could literally feel the pressure of my throat tightening as I recalled the memory.
It was a little uncomfortable, but my practitioner saw the tears streaming down my face and guided me to create some distance from the memory by moving my awareness out of my past life body to view the scene as though I was watching a movie.
It really helped me to see it from a higher perspective with less emotion and physical sensation.
When speaking to a practitioner, their answer to this question shouldn’t be that they’d awaken you if you were feeling emotional discomfort. That could be jarring and may imprint the memory more deeply in your subconscious without any type of closure.
4: WHAT’S YOUR RATE?
This sounds like an obvious question, but there’s a deeper reason for asking.
If your practitioner charges less than a hundred dollars or includes a past life regression as an add-on to another service, it’s questionable.
Hypnosis training is expensive, most hypnotists pay an annual fee to be a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, and it’s a skill that’s valuable. If someone’s charging fifty dollars and/or it’s less than an hour and a half session, I suggest exploring other practitioners.
GET TO KNOW THEIR VIBE
Asking these questions also allows you a chance to get to know the hypnotist better to see if their energy and personality align with yours.
In order to move into a hypnotic state, you need to relax. And in order to relax, you have to be comfortable with the person guiding you.
And beyond all else, trust your intuition.
