Not many people are aware that one of my services is past-life regression, …and so … I thought I would share a case study with you.
I have been given permission by one of my clients to tell you about the experience and healing that occurred for her during one of our sessions.
For confidentiality reasons let’s call my client Jane.
Jane has been living with a phobia most of her life. It is a phobia of gastro and vomiting. Now that she also has children, she has had to deal with this illness on a hands on basis. It also manifests as daily anxiety and she is highly aware of when gastro is doing the rounds in her community, family etc something she then focuses on and becomes anxious and fearful of, wondering how she is going to cope if it pays a visit to her home. In the past she has packed up and left situations immediately at the first signs of the illness.
Jane has been seeing a hypnotherapist regularly to help manage some personal challenges and her phobia for the past year. Her hypnotherapist felt like he was missing something and couldn’t quite ‘get’ the missing piece.
So Jane and I felt that it was time to do a past life regression.
I always emphasize to clients that the way I like to work is that I do not do a past-life regression for fun, it is not a party trick and is a very powerful technique which can be used for releasing strong negative patterns which may relate to what is happening for you in this present life period.
I also emphasize that your past-life may not actually be your past life!
We make a firm intention that what we will be accessing is a time, place or event that will help heal the pattern in which we are focusing on. Whether it is your past life or not, it really doesn’t matter. What DOES matter is the meaning, symbology and healing that we can gain from these experiences.
Your past-life may actually be an aspect of the collective conscious that you have tapped into or
it could purely be the energy showing you a pattern in symbolic form in order for you to understand and make sense of a situation or
it could be a past life recall…
what ever it is, the importance is what healing can occur by releasing, becoming aware of and experiencing this sort of energetic reality!
I also believe that what ever the ‘remembering’ that is coming to the surface is an awareness you require to know now.
So let’s regress and set the scene…
Jane is lying on the client bed, I have created a sacred healing space for her and I have led her through a relaxation meditation. I use my singing bowls and ask for the energy to come to the surface of what we need to work with that day. Whilst playing the bowls I receive a strong image of a south American indigenous woman clutching her child. She is knelt down in a forest with her back against a tree holding her baby. I don’t want to influence Jane and so I keep this information to myself.
We build together a safe and supportive environment for Jane to explore and I guide her to a time with the intention of healing her phobia. Jane had already started processing before she even arrived at the clinic as she kept hearing the words ‘Gone, gone, all gone’ over and over. When she got to the stage just before entering the past life, her message came to the surface again…
‘Gone, gone, it’s all gone’
…she was clearly distressed and emotional.
We paused for a moment, asked whether she wanted to continue which she did and reinforced her safety and reassured her she was totally supported. NOTE: The client is able to stop the process at any given moment, if things are occurring that the client feels totally uncomfortable with or distressed by, they do not have to continue and can stop at any time.
Jane felt comfortable with continuing and could sense and feel that she was a woman, native to America, though not North American and then felt she may have been South American. We came to the conclusion she was Mayan. She had returned to her tribe, with her baby on her back to total devastation. Everyone and everything had gone. ‘Gone, gone all gone’ it was very emotional for Jane and she could feel the loss that was very apparent. The baby on her back had also passed. I asked if there was anyone left and she said there was a tent left standing. She went to the tent and walked inside. There was an elder sitting in his tent, staring into a fire and holding a stick. ‘Very bad’, he said, ‘all gone’ he was very sad and had lost all hope. Jane felt like she couldn’t do anymore for him and so I guided her to where she needed to go. She could see a pyramid type structure and said,
‘Up the top, that is where the positive energy is, I have to go up there’
So she went to the top of the pyramid. She could see out across the land which was devastated, even the trees and the people were totally gone, she felt that it was some sort of disease that wiped everything out.
I asked her to visualise a huge golden ball of Light above her and the pyramid which was full of love and healing energy. Jane said she felt a male standing behind her supporting her. Jane then felt the golden energy pour down over her and through her, down through the pyramid and out across the land. She stood in the Light and allowed for it to heal her and the land. She turn to face the person behind her who smiled at her and then was lifted up into the Light. ‘Job’s done,’ Jane said, and as quickly as that she had done what she needed to do. She turned around and only found darkness in front of her and didn’t know where to go. I asked if there was anything else that she needed to do whilst she was here but she just repeated, ‘Job’s done’. So I guided her back to her safe space to clear her energy, ground her and check in and see if there was anything else we needed to work with.
Whilst in her safe place Jane had a very strong feeling that there was someone sitting beside her. I asked her to face the person and she realised it was herself, her shadow side. Her shadow side had detached herself from her, scared to really see what was happening internally. By being detached, even though Jane received the Light from above her shadow side could not as it was not part of her at that stage. So no matter what healing Jane embarked upon, her shadow side could not receive the light. Also with her shadow side being detached there was no integration of herself in order for her to understand how to really heal the challenges Jane faced, not only with her phobia but with her personal challenges.
She was in survival mode and now it was time to face her fears.
I ask her Jane to have the healing Light above her and to breathe in her shadow side whilst I played a singing bowl. Once Jane had finished ‘integrating’ she was feeling better and lighter. We concluded the session and reflected back on her experience.
In my life I feel pretty balanced both physically and emotionally, I just have one slight kink: a phobia that is triggered by anxiety. Over the years I have employed all sorts of traditional healing modalities in search of a resolution. For me, the most effective I have found is hypnotherapy. My ‘hypno’ has been able to successfully reduce my anxiety issues, and yet the phobia still remained. I decided to branch out.
On Monday last week I experienced my first past life regression, which I entered not really knowing what to expect. My trust and faith in Renee and skills and abilities put me at ease, in that, I knew nothing would go wrong, nothing could hurt me.
We did a grounding meditation and she took me to a safe place of my own design, a place I still return to when I need some ‘time out’. From there she then took me on a trip down memory lane, a memory that was long forgotten.
The actual experience itself was like watching a dream unfold before my eyes although I was awake. Daydreaming is different; it tends to be self-directed by conscious thought that send you off in different directions of pondering. The regression was more like a movie in which I played the main character but was not the directed.
Renee herself did some subtle direction, in so far as she kept me moving forward in the movie. As an example, after I discovered what I needed and my ‘job was done’ I wasn’t sure what came next. My, first conscious, thought was to turn around and go back the way I had come only to discover I was walking into black space. Renee asked me where I was and I responded with some confusion. She asked if I could see a light, sure enough there it was to my left. With Renee’s gentle guidance my confusion evaporated and I was able to continue the session.
What I experienced during the session was not happy, it involved a lot of sadness, loss, desolation, isolation and feelings of hopelessness. it ended with the realisation that there is always hope, and that life will always continue. The healing I experienced was immediate, intense and is still in effect today. It felt like something had been clarified, a wholeness of being that wasn’t there before.
A ripple effect has continued to touch other parts of my life. Example; I experienced rather a large hormonal ‘unblocking’ a few days later and oddly, my sense of smell has increased dramatically – I now have a super power that allows me to sniff out, from across the room, if my kids really have brushed their teeth. I no longer have the constant aches and pains that I would normally feel which I credit to this ‘wholeness of being’. My osteopath says my body is more integrated than it has ever been in the past, “whatever you have done in the past two weeks since I last saw you has worked wonders”…… I just nodded knowingly.
As for the phobia, I still experience moments of mild anxiety that trigger the thoughts directly related to the phobia, but the fear and dread that is normally attached to those thoughts has disappeared. I feel I am no longer confined by my phobia and I have a new-found sense of freedom from a burden, which is intensely refreshing.
I believe the healing session I had with Renee was the key that unlocked something that desperately needed resolution. I also received an amazing awareness of what it means to be ‘held in a sacred space’, a gift I thank her for every day. I know I can confidently put my emotional and energetic health completely in her hands with the knowledge that they will be tenderly nurtured and returned replenished, strong and ready to continue living life.
Renee is truly one of the most beautiful souls I have the privilege of knowing.
So after blushing and gushing over this review I can see there has been a shift, there still may need a tad more work to to do in regards to releasing the phobia completely, but still, there is a shift. The symbolism though is what I feel is the most relevant and there are many layers and levels to this story that not only relates to the phobia but also to another personal challenge that Jane is going through. It not only provides Jane with information of what may have triggered this phobia on a ‘past-life’ level but may also provide her with another awareness in regards to how she was dealing with her fears and how her survival mode was functioning. Jane has allowed her experience and energy to process and has come to the conclusion that to analyse or dissect it; takes away from the whole experience she went through and sees’ it as…
‘it is what it is’
and is purely going with feeling the benefits of her sacred journey.
