Liberating Incarnations

Diane has done a great deal of inner work and still, this feeling persisted. It was a feeling of deep love, hopelessness, grief, and anger, all intertwined. She felt that it had to be related to a past life. Because she lives some distance away, we did the session with Skype and webcam. Using this feeling as her guide, Diane remembered a past life in the early 1700’s.

She and her husband lived in a remote area, near Boston. For some reason, they weren’t completely safe. He had been out somewhere and she went looking for him. He was dead, obviously brutally murdered. Alone, she got his body back to the barn. Something in her went numb at that point. She just quit feeling things as much. She died a few years later, still numb, after eating mushrooms. There had apparently been a poisonous one mixed in with the edible ones. It was accidental.

After the past life regression, Diane could see how she has carried the numbness forward into this life. She was also aware that the intertwined feelings of deep love, hopelessness, grief, and anger were directly related to how she felt after her husband’s death in that past life. She is reporting that the past life session is helping her de-numb. She also feels she has let go of a belief that she was both unlovable and unable to love.

This past life regression is a wonderful example of how we can carry a mixture of strong feelings from a past life into the next life or lives.  Past life regression therapy is invaluable in healing these kinds of past life memories.

Please note: I have changed names and any identifying information to protect this client’s privacy.

If any of the following ring true for you, there is a very strong probability you are experiencing past life memories and feelings:

  1. You have this feeling or this situation that you just can’t shake. Seems like it’s been with you for-ev-er!! You’ve done inner work, maybe even therapy. You still can’t seem to shake it. Just keeps popping up.
  2. you are really attracted to a period in history
  3. you’re really attracted to a language
  4. you just love (or hate) everything about a particular country
  5. you just know how do something even though you’ve never studied it.
  6. You haven’t found anything in your life that explains these feelings

If this sounds like you, then you may want to consider past life regression therapy. Past life regression therapy will help you recover past life memories, shedding light, awareness, and understanding on those feelings and situations. Ninety-five percent of healing is the awareness of what you want to heal.

How do you find these past life memories? Where you do begin? The most direct and powerful way is past life regression therapy. A well-trained and certified past life therapist will help you explore your past life memories, keeping you focused on your intention and helping you integrate the information into your daily life.

Where do you find a past-life therapist?

If you live in a metropolitan area, look for an alternative magazine. Likely spots to find them are health food and herbal/alternative medicine stores and metaphysical/new age bookstores and shops. Many past-life therapists advertise in these publications. You can also search on the Internet. Three sites I recommend are:

  1. International Board of Regression Therapy: Certifies Past Life Therapists and Researchers and lists the certified Past Life Therapists by name or by state.
  2. International Association for Regression Research and Therapies: is a community of past life therapists, including listings. Not all are certified.
  3. International Between Lives Regression Network: lists therapists who have trained and certified in Michael Newton’s Life Between Lives therapy.

How do you narrow the field?

First, look for past life therapists who are near where you live (within a few hours). Then give them a call and interview them. A professional will understand what you are doing and why. This is true of any therapist (past life regression, life between lives, counselor, social worker, psychologist, psychiatrist). It’s crucial that you feel comfortable with the therapist, that you trust her or him. Trust your intuition, your gut feelings.

If there are no past life therapists near you, or you just don’t click with those who are, expand your search. You may need to make a short trip out of it. If the only time you have is a short (or long) weekend, see if the past life therapist can work with you in arranging that. When I have clients coming from more than two or three hours away, I e-mail a list of area hotels and restaurants on request.

6 Questions to Ask a Past Life Regression Therapist

  1. How long have you been practicing past life regression therapy?
  2. What is your training/background?
  3. Are you certified? If so, with and by who? How long?
  4. How much does a past life regression therapy session cost?
  5. How long is the past life regression session?
  6. How many past life regression sessions do you recommend?

Talk with them a little about what you want to explore. Keep it brief and be as specific as you can. Like you, they are probably busy people.

When you’ve set up your past life regression therapy session

  1. do your best to keep your expectations under control
  2. trust that you will have exactly the experience and remember exactly the past life memories you are ready to remember now
  3. write down what your question or inquiry is
  4. come to your past life regression therapy session with curiosity and an open heart
  5. let your past life memories set you free.

I am struck by some similarities between what is happening in Iran and what occurred in China in 1989. The first is the use of technology. The second is the tipping point of the human spirit. The third is appearance of an individual becoming a symbol.

The first report of the Chinese protest reached the world via a fax sent by a Chinese student. At that time, fax machines were an up and coming business tool. There were very very few in homes.  It was a whole new way to use the technology. After Tiananmen, there was a marked increase, world-wide, in the use of faxes to transfer documents and information.

Today, Twitter is being heavily used to report, 140 characters at a time, (including links) what is happening in Iran.  Early reports from Tehran came from Twitter users tweeting from cell phones. YouTube posts add the pictures. An expanding use of the technology.

The iconic photograph of a young man standing in front of a tank has become the immediately recognized signature of Tiananmen Square and the Chinese student uprising. The video of the violent, horrible death of Neda is becoming that for Iranians and the world.

Most striking is the nature of the conflict. In both cases, ordinary people had had enough. Ordinary people, like you and me, saying “This isn’t right. This needs to change.” It’s about a tipping point in the psyche of a nation. I am awed by the courage of these men and women.

The wide variety of life experiences we have had always amazes me, whether they are within our current life or in past lives.

This morning, a new client went to a life when she was deaf and dumb, apparently from birth. The time period seemed to be the mid 1700’s, in either the Netherlands or the American Colonies. The where and when weren’t that important to her. She had, at some point, been sent somewhere away from home to live. There was a special thing that she always hoped to be chosen for . . . and never was. Always, she was left behind, thrown away. She died when she was about 20, choking, perhaps in the midst of a seizure.

After the session, she was  glad that she now knew where that feeling had come from (being left behind/thrown away). It had been a constant feeling her whole life. With this new information, she can  now make a choice when that feeling comes up again, knowing it’s from a past life and something she brought to this one to work on.

This is the gift of past life regression: the opportunity to learn where some issue or pattern came from and then to make an informed choice, rather than merely reacting.

It’s been a pretty amazing week. The Law of Attraction/Law of Abundance work I’ve been doing is now replacing the old patterns and behaviors. I’m feeling strong, focused, and balanced.

Yesterday didn’t feel so strong and balanced. I was driving to an appointment and suddenly didn’t have the faintest idea how to get there – nothing, nada, zero, zilch — and I’ve been there many times. I got a little concerned, until I remembered that these are pretty big changes and my brain and energy systems are in the midst of some re-wiring, re-routing.  And that was that.

So here’s the recap for THIS week:

  • inquiry re: translation of book into Portuguese,
  • potential connection to someone filming a mainstream TV spirituality series who has a special interest in past lives,
  • a book signing set up for May 16 @ Book of Knowledge in Winchester,
  • a  past life workshop set up for May 23 in Winchester,
  • request for a past life workshop sometime in May in Warrenton,
  • a past life workshop TBD this summer in Ann Arbor, along with book signing and private sessions.
  • 3 blog posts (this being one of them)
  • working on two press releases (1 for book, 1 for coaching)
  • @elmdea followers almost doubled in 7 days and I’m just doing my usual tweets and RT’s

Thank you, Universe, for the love!

Liberating Incarnations is now in print and on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders (off and on while they get their platform figured out), and it’s listed with Ingram. This is so amazing!!

Next steps? OMG – there are so many. This blog, building my Twitter and Facebook presence, talking to indie bookstores about carrying and booksignings, and a whole list of other things.

They (my publisher) was right. Writing the book is only the beginning. And I’m having so much fun learning all these new things!

My across the street neighbor is coming over in a few days to show me how to take the book “viral”.  Hmmmm — more fun! YAY!!

I received a request yesterday. A Brazilian publishing company is considering Liberating Incarnations for translation into Portuguese!! And the book has only been out a little over 2-1/2 weeks!!!

Based on the feedback I’ve gotten so far, they will like what they read. It doesn’t seem to matter what the person’s religious or spiritual background is – whoever has picked up the book has been drawn in.

What is even more interesting is: about 2 weeks ago, doing something (I don’t remember what but I definitely wasn’t thinking about the book) I suddenly got that it would be translated – into several languages.  And here, several weeks later . . . What an amazing world this is.

I was recently honored to hear of a four day ceremony that happened in December, 2008. The event and the message were shared by a pipe carrier who participated in the ceremony. It is a message for all of us.

It was a gathering of about 50 Native American and non-Native American pipe carriers and medicine people. They came from all over the United States and Canada to pray for healing: healing of the earth and healing of all beings on the earth.

There was a Tree of Life present that would be planted at the end of the four days of ceremonies. The tree was a white pine, its roots bundled in burlap.

On the fourth day, something like scrying was done. At the base of the tree, still unplanted, was outlined a medicine wheel and the four directions in sage. The four quarters were filled in with tobacco. This was covered by 3 successive layers of dirt, brought from different places for this ceremony. These four layers, including the medicine wheel, represented the four worlds through which man has traveled to this, the fifth world. On top was spread a layer of sand from New York.

The medicine men sat and looked. As each was ready, they went to the sacred mound and drew the symbols of their vision in the sand, then filled the lines with colored sands. It became very clear very quickly that there was an over-riding message.

We are living in a time of great change and challenge. Each of us has a very important part to play in this evolution of human-kind on the planet. We are at a point when it can go either way — to the continuation of human life on the earth or to the end of human life on the earth. Earth offers a unique and beautiful dimension of experience. It is in our hands how it continues.

For this reason, it is critical that we each give our medicine full expression – now. Don’t wait for tomorrow, or next week or next year. What is your medicine? It is your gift, what you do that you are very good at, that brings happiness and joy, that serves. It may be music, art, construction, teaching, shoveling, driving, flying . . . Express your medicine, your gift, with joy, in service, as fully as you possibly can.

Each of our gifts is vitally important. While we may not directly see the impact of fully expressing our medicine, it is a needed part of the larger weave. It is felt and it is important.

All My Relations.

At the end of a long day, I’m remembering two people who came to see me today for past life regression sessions. How different each person was . . . and how beautifully (as always) Spirit guided them to JUST where they needed to go.

The first session was very emotional, with many tears, facing huge fears and letting go. The letting go of the old energies was so difficult – both emotionally and physically. It was also very freeing once it was done.

The other session was very quiet, very still . . . and such a surprise, to both of us. It was a journey of sorrow that led to joy, understanding a karmic relationship, and realizing that it is now complete.

Each person found the information she needed in just the way she could understand and use it.

  • Both women discovered lives where they had been men and had died at the hands of others.
  • They both grieved the circumstances of their death.
  • One death carried a lot of emotion, which has been carried through many lives, including her current life.
  • The other death was a surprise and it was filled with compassion and understanding.
  • Both sessions provided healing of present life circumstances.

I stand in awe, once again, of this process that allows such deep healing. Healing is the only predictable part of a past life session. Everything else in a session is just like life: it can (and does) go in unexpected directions. The element of grace is always at work.

Love and blessings to you.

I’ve just finished reading (for the 3rd time in maybe 6 years) Hank Wesselman’s 3 great biographical books about his non-ordinary experiences which led him to shamanism and expanded awareness.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes, as I’m re-reading, I hear myself saying “I don’t remember that being in here.” I don’t think the book has changed, so it must be me. Sound familiar?

As I was reading this time, the following really struck me — another insight into the mystery of reincarnation and our relationship to our past selves and our biological lineage.

“Through your life experiences you have developed your own distinctive character, and in this sense, you are an individual who is very much your own person. Speaking at the level of energy, however, a slightly different insight is possible.

The mystical power or force that pervades the universe is called mana, and it is a form of pure energy that is impersonal. But when mana is manifested as the life force that carries your spiritual aspect, it becomes personalized as mauli. At the time of your birth, your energy body was infused with your mauli, your life force, which is actually a blend of the mana from many lineages — that of your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and so forth, stretching back into time.
Your ike, your spiritual power, is distinct from your life force, and yet it is ultimately an aspect of it. . . . Your ike, like your mana, is impersonal. It simply exists . . . ”

Wesselman, Hank. “Medicinemaker”.  New York, Bantam Books,                  1998. pg 159

I would love to hear your thoughts/ideas/awarnesses about this.

Love and blessings to you.
