I recently returned from getting trained in Past Life Regression Hypnotherapy techniques by Dr. Brian Weiss and Carole K. Weiss at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in New York. The workshop was an amazing experience. For a week I joined 150 other people from countries around the world as we gathered to participate in daily group past life regressions led by Dr. Weiss, break-out practice sessions, demonstrations of past life regression techniques, informative Q&A sessions and other valuable learning experiences including a beautiful guided meditation led by Carole. The grounds of Omega were a perfect setting for doing this type of learning and work. The serene setting at the lake was a perfect opportunity to contemplate and reflect. I even got up early every morning to do an hour of Qigong, which is saying something since I am more of a night owl than an early bird!

I had some very interesting personal past life regression experiences. In one memory, I saw myself as a male warrior in Rome, wearing warrior garb standing in a battlefield. This scene seemed to be the point where I was coming to a decision not to engage in physical fighting any more. It was the point in my lifetimes (or in this cycle of lifetimes) when I decided to be done with physical fighting. I saw myself go onto the battlefield and perish at the hand of another warrior. I have been thinking a lot about this memory and it does make sense to me. I believe I have had other lifetimes as a warrior because I feel drawn to weapons; in particular, I feel a great affinity to historical Japanese weapons, especially archery.

Dr. Weiss is well-known for his book entitled Many Lives, Many Masters which details his experiences with a patient named Catherine who began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. Catherine’s regressive experiences not only helped her to heal, they transformed Dr. Weiss’s life as well.

Past life regression is based on the idea that we are eternal beings, that we are souls having a human experience. We reincarnate lifetime after lifetime in different bodies. Through hypnotic regression we are able to access the memories from our past lives. People who have experienced mental, emotional and/or physical pain in their current life have been able to heal that pain and trauma through the use of past life regression.

Using past life regression hypnotic techniques, I’ve helped people to break through a creative blockage and begin writing again; gain new insights and inner knowledge; feel deep love and warmth; and deepen a relationship with a family member, feeling a deeper sense of gratitude for this person. Visit my testimonial page for a full listing of past life regression testimonials.

One of the reasons someone would want to do a past life regression is to learn and grow, to get past certain patterns or habits so that people can experience more joy, comfort, happiness and love. I think that one thing I’ve learned from my past life regression experience of being a warrior in Rome is that I want to engage with other people in a new way, not by fighting but by relating with other people in a way that is cooperative, harmonious and peaceful. I suspect I’ve been learning how to do this for many incarnations between my Rome lifetime and my current life.

Recently, I had the pleasure of appearing on the Pure Nature Podcast with host Kristy Rodriguez where I discussed Hypnotherapy at length. It was wonderful to talk about this often mystery-shrouded subject in a frank and very revealing way.

How would you like to accept something about yourself more? How would you like to accept others more? One way you can shift your habits is by using hypnotherapy.

Hypnosis therapy is used for more than just managing weight reduction and becoming a non-smoker. Hypnosis therapy is used by people every day to become more self-accepting and more confident in their abilities. In their abilities to do many things, including relating to other people.

Because the place where we start when we are relating to others is actually with ourselves. Perhaps it is difficult to accept something about someone else. Their behavior bothers you somehow and you wish they would change so you don’t feel uncomfortable anymore.

There is a reason someone else’s behavior bothers you. It is a trigger for something inside of you, something that you don’t like about yourself. If you change yourself, then the other person’s behavior will not bother you as much.

However, we cannot change what we don’t accept. That is where using hypnosis therapy comes in. Because hypnosis therapy is about learning how to change from within. It helps with learning self-acceptance. When you accept something about yourself, you can then proceed to change it. And once you accept something about yourself and change it, you can more easily accept those same qualities in others.

And, this can help the relationship you are in to improve. When you improve yourself, you improve your relationship because you are half of the relationship.

Hypnosis therapy is about reconditioning the subconscious mind. Our subconscious minds are amenable to suggestion. From birth to about age 3 our subconscious minds are like hot wax being poured into a mold. Over time the wax cools and takes the shape of the mold. Our subconscious minds take the shape of the conditioning around us after we’re born.

When we’re adults, we are unconsciously living out our habits that were formed when we were very young. If we want to change these habits, we need to put a little heat into it to reform the habits, remold the wax.

Hypnosis therapy gently helps people to reform their habits. People become more self-accepting, more self-loving by using hypnosis therapy. When we work with the subconscious mind, we are working with the part of ourselves where our emotions, our habits, our conditioned responses, our creative imagination and our automatic body functions are seated.

Hypnosis therapy can be described as a massage for the mind. Have you ever had a physical massage? The massage therapists physically works the muscles to work out any tension and blockages from the area, changing the body, healing it and leaving the body feeling more relaxed, comfortable and at ease. Hypnosis therapy works with the subconscious mind in much the same way, helping the mind to feel relaxed and less tense and less stressed.

If you are wanting to help your relationship with others become better, begin by looking at yourself and helping yourself to become better. We can’t change what we don’t accept. Once we accept something about ourselves, we can choose to change it. Hypnosis therapy is the perfect tool to use to change your habits. Like a sculpture using a tool to create a new piece of art, you can use hypnosis therapy to create a new habit, a new way of thinking and being. And eventually you will begin to see those changes grow out from you into your relationships with others.
