To give you a better understanding of how past lives can impact on your present life, I wanted to share my own story.....or one small part of it. I recently did a past life regression as I am learning to speak up for myself more and trust myself more ...but this intention was bringing up some fear for me. A lot of fear in fact, so I wanted to clear it out, so that I could more easily express myself.
As a hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression facilitator, I have viewed many of my past lives, so when someone recently offered to do a past life regression on me, at a fair in Sydney, I personally didn't think anything new would come up. I thought I had seen so many of my lives and released so much fear, in trepidation and learnt so much about myself that I said no, and was about to walk away... when I heard behind me.."I'll give you a discount".
Well, it wasn't the discount that encouraged me to give it a go, but I felt that it was meant to be, as its not usual for someone to offer a discount on an already good price.I sat down, and when I was asked what I wanted to work on, I said " to be able to love more freely, to not block".
We started the regression and I began to see a really large old door, an arch shaped door with an old locking mechanism. I pulled the door open to peer inside, only to see a cobblestone, cold floor and a very small dark place, with only a small window for light. I sensed I lived in this room, I looked like a man, I had very, old hands and my arms were very malnurished. I could sense that I had been in this room for a very long time.
The more I saw, the more I began to understand how it connected with my present life. During this past life, I had been a priest, and during my reflection and prayer time, I had discovered a personal God. I felt the presence of unconditional love and lightness. I was so exhilerated that I wanted to share this devotion to a personal God with everyone...so began to teach this. Unfortunately this was not allowed and so, I was thrown into prison to live the rest of my days.
Now, you would think that I would feel angry and frustrated at this happening to me, or even full of anger, but, what I truly felt was unconditional love. I felt that if I ever had the opportunity again to share the personal spirit of God, then I would want to teach that. My words during this session were "only love is real", the rest is fabricated. (When I later looked up the meaning of this word I began to understand the significance of its meaning - it means: To invent something in order to deceive).
In that past life, I had wanted 'everyone' to experience the universal life force energy of unconditional love, known to me as God in that lifetime. I wanted everyone to go within, reflect, pray and find the beauty that I had discovered, however, it wasn't meant to be.
The irony is, that being placed in a cold, dank room for the remainder of my life, only gave me more time to reflect, pray and discover the internal presence of God / Spirit...so in effect it was a blessing in disguise.
During this session, my whole body shook, from the inside out...as it does when you are shivering from the cold. I was suprised at how reactive to this session my body was. It made me realise how much I was holding on to keep myself safe.
In this lifetime, I have found it hard to speak up about what I believe to be truth. The fear stems from past lives, where I have been punished for speaking out. (burnt at the stake, imprisoned, mouth wired almost shut are lifetimes I remember). The memory of these lifetimes lie below the conscious mind, so it takes a good past life therapist to draw them out, and this was no exception.
By clearing the energy from this past life, I have felt more free, more clear and more balanced on moving forward.I can now speak my truth...it may not be your truth.. and that's ok, but I will find my soul tribe and I will share what I need to share with them. It is very exciting to liberate yourself from past fears and allow your life to move ahead in leaps and bounds. Past life therapy is one way to do that.
