How Does Past Life Regression Work?

how does past life regression work

Have you ever wondered about the existence of past lives? Are you curious about uncovering profound insights into your true self and discovering your life’s purpose? If so, past-life regression might hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of your soul’s journey. In this blog, we will explore what is past-life regression, understand the process behind it, and delve into what you can expect during a session.

Are Past Lives Real?

Believe it or not, many of us have been reincarnating for millions of years; and in truth, there is no “death,” only that of the body. Remarkably, numerous incidents have been recorded where children vividly describe details of their alleged past lives to their parents. While such stories are often dismissed as childish fantasies, there have been instances where parents have verified the accuracy of their children’s claims, validating the existence of past lives.

What is Past Life Regression?

Past Life Regression is the process of exploring past-life experiences using hypnosis to gain a better understanding of the present lives. By accessing our higher selves, we can unravel the messages that are crucial for our current existence. This practice is rooted in the belief of reincarnation, and one of the widely known modalities used for past life regression is the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) developed by Dolores Cannon. Therefore, this article will also shed light on how QHHT works.

How Does Past-Life Regression Work?

Past Life Regression or QHHT acts as a bridge between our conscious self and our higher self, allowing us to tap into the wisdom and guidance that resides within us. In Past-Life Regression, you are guided to connect with your higher self, which holds unlimited knowledge and insight. Through deep relaxation and hypnosis, your higher self will reveal significant past-life experiences that are relevant to the issues you are currently facing.

The guidance of a skilled Past-Life Regression therapist throughout the journey ensures that you are fully aware of the unfolding events and can make sense of the profound experiences.

Steps of Past-Life Regression or QHHT

A Past-Life Regression session typically lasts a minimum of three hours and encompasses the following 5 steps:

1. Exploration & Review Your Questions (0.5 hour)

The Past-Life Regression process begins with an exploration and review of the questions you have prepared. Your therapist will take the time to understand the specific areas of your life or experiences that you seek answers or clarity for. Whether it’s understanding relationship dynamics, finding your life purpose, or overcoming challenges, this initial phase ensures that your session is tailored to your unique needs.

2. Hypnosis Induction & Soul Journey (~1 hour)

Once your questions have been reviewed, the hypnosis induction begins. Your past life regression therapist will help you enter a deep state of relaxation. This state allows you to access your higher self.

Through visualization techniques, such as staircases, corridors, tunnels, bridges or something in the nature, you will be guided to explore your past life stories and connect with relevant experiences. Your consciousness will embark on a soul journey, transcending time and space.

3. Conversations with Higher Self (~45 minutes)

During this stage of the process, you will have the opportunity to receive guidance from your higher self. Your higher self holds profound wisdom and knowledge about your soul’s journey across lifetimes. Your past life regression therapist will help you ask your questions to your higher self, and you will be the one who gain insights and profound understanding about the challenges, lessons, and purpose of your present life.

Your higher self will provide resolution to the issues you are facing in your present life. Lessons that need to be learned and understood for your soul’s evolution will also be revealed. You will find unmistakable signs that your higher self is talking to you.

4. Body Scan & Healing (~20 minutes)

As you delve deeper into your past life regression session, your therapist will guide your higher self to conduct a thorough body scan. This process involves focusing on different parts of your physical body, allowing you to observe any sensations or areas of tension. Through this body scan, your higher self has the remarkable ability to release emotional blockages and provide instant healing. Additionally, it may offer guidance on specific actions or dietary choices that can support your overall well-being and facilitate the healing process.

5. Conversation about Your Session (~20 minutes)

After the soul journey and healing process, as you come back from the hypnotic trance state, you will have an opportunity to discuss and reflect upon your session with your therapist. This conversation allows you to integrate the insights, experiences, and healing you have received. You can ask questions, seek further clarity, and share any emotions or realizations that have emerged during the session. Your therapist will provide guidance and support as you process your journey.

What to Expect during a Past Life Regression Session?

During a past life regression session, you can expect a deeply personal and transformative experience that connects you with your higher self and explores memories from past lives. Here’s what you can anticipate during your session:

Experiencing Time's Illusion

During the past life regression process, you will embark on a remarkable journey where the boundaries of time and space seem to dissolve. As you connect with your higher self, the experiences from your past lives are not merely remembered as distant memories; rather, they are felt and experienced simultaneously with your present moment. In this expanded state of consciousness, the concept of time loses its linear nature, allowing you to explore the profound interconnectedness of your soul’s journey across different eras.

Accessing Memories and Insights

As you enter a relaxed state, you may begin to visualize vivid scenes, emotions, and sensations from past lives. These memories may come in fragments at the beginning, and your therapist will guide you throughout the journey to complete the narratives. Your higher self will guide you towards the most appropriate and relevant memories that hold valuable insights for your present life. Trust that what arises during the session is meant to provide you with wisdom and learning opportunities.

Safety and Comfort

It’s important to note that you will remain physically and mentally safe throughout the entire process. Your past-life regression therapist will create a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your past lives. They will guide you through the session, ensuring your comfort and well-being. You have full control and can pause the session at any time if you feel the need to do so.

Integration and Closure

Towards the end of the session, your past life regression therapist will guide you in integrating the information and experiences you have gained. You will have the opportunity to express gratitude and closure to the entities or energies from other lives you encountered during the regression. This includes receding your higher self to its natural state, expressing gratitude to the entities from past lives, and leaving the past memories behind, knowing that they have served their purpose in providing insight for your present lifetime.

Emotional Release and Healing

Past life regression can sometimes bring forth unresolved emotions or traumas from past lives. However, it’s important to remember that you are in a safe space, and your therapist will support you through any emotional release that may occur. This process can lead to profound healing, allowing you to let go of emotional blockages and find closure.

Integration of Consciousness

At the end of the session, your consciousness and personality will fully reintegrate into your current physical body. You will return to the present moment, carrying with you the insights and wisdom gained from the past-life regression experience.

Remember, the purpose of past-life regression is to explore and learn from the past, to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life’s path. The memories and experiences you encounter are meant to provide guidance and healing for your present life. Trust the process, embrace the journey, and allow yourself to be open to the transformative possibilities that past-life regression offers.

Choosing the Right Therapist for Your Journey

When making the decision to undergo Past Life Regression, it is of utmost importance to select a qualified and experienced therapist who truly resonates with you. Take the time to explore testimonials and success stories from previous clients, as they provide valuable insights into the therapist’s ability to guide you effectively through the entire process. From the initial preparation for your session to the post-session integration, choosing the right therapist ensures that you receive the utmost care and support on your transformative journey of Past Life Regression.
