SELF LOVE

Love of Self

 I believe we come here to learn many lessons but ONE main lesson.

That will show up a lot during our lifetime and in many different ways. If we come into life choosing emotionally unavailable parents we may continue to do so in most of our succeeding relationships. If this is the case THE lesson that is presented to us is usually one of self -love. We are suppose to learn that when love is not available out there we are to turn inside to start the process of self –love. Most of us instead keep looking for it out there. It won’t be there until we can love ourselves first. Energy attracts like energy.

 What does self- love look like? Yes, massages, meditations, exercise, more sleep, good food, but is that all? It needs to incorporate respecting ourselves enough to ask for what we really want, not accepting what we don’t want and speaking up for ourselves to show how worthy we are. It’s telling friends, family or strangers that they can’t talk to us without respect, or treat us  less than what we deserve. YOU are special and you must believe that. If you don’t believe you are than no one else will either.

 Many times we think we feel special or love ourselves but many times we carry energetic blocks from other lifetimes that remember guilt, shame, or other emotions that had caused us to feel unworthy. We consciously don’t remember those times but our cellular memory does. Until we release these feelings of unworthiness we will not be in self-love.

 I will share a story with you that turned around a young woman’s life when she finally let go of her feelings or emotional blockage of unworthiness.

 

 

 Sandy came to see me since she was tired of everyone taking advantage of her and that she would allow them to do so. She would get so angry at herself that she would not say no more often. She said she never wanted to hurt anyone’s feelings and always wanted everyone to like her.

 “I hurt myself to avoid hurting others.”

Intention:

Let us go back to the root of your feelings of unworthiness.

I regressed Sandy back to a lifetime in 1941. She saw herself as a young woman sitting by a pond with her husband, happy and in love. She described that the pond was on their apple tree farm in Rhode Island. Sandy recognized the husband as her son in this life.

Sandy went into the house to cook dinner for her husband and herself. While she was frying their dinner, Sandy went to the bathroom and returned to a smoke-filled kitchen. The curtains had caught on fire, filling the whole house with smoke. Sandy passed out, only to awaken in the hospital. She had survived, but her husband had died in the fire.

Sandy cried at the thought that she had killed her husband and said,” Look what I ‘ve done to him” and “We never even had children.” Sandy’s husband comes into this life as her child. In her past life, Sandy tried to start a new life out in California, seeking to get over her tragic accident. She met another man who was very social and married him only to find out that he had cheated on her and was never home.

Still filled with self-blame about her first husband, she finally broke out of reality. Feeling depressed and remorseful, she walked down to and into the Pacific Ocean to end her pain.

Lesson:

Strength

Last Thoughts:

Where are all of my support systems?

Connection and Awareness:

Sandy was very sad that she had killed her first husband in her past life, who is now her son in this life. She felt it made so much sense since she was always trying to please him and dote on him. Sandy was still carrying her guilt from the accident and feeling that she did not deserve to have joy in this life.

Always trying to please everyone else was a way of trying to win back love that she did not get from the second husband. It also helped Sandy understand why she has had trust issues in this life with her present husband. Sandy’s cellular memory was still holding that her last husband cheated on her. When we feel that we do not deserve to have joy in this life, we put that energy out there and manifest things and people in our life that will fulfill that prophesy.

Sandy has been looking for those support systems here, but, instead, she attracts those who want her support. After the regression, Sandy understands the reason she has been trying to please everyone, especially her son. After releasing the energy of the guilt, she no longer feels the need to please.

Sandy now has a very healthy relationship with her son and with her family, speaking up and asking for their support when she needs it. A new respect for her has developed within her family.

 

Edgar Casey’s thoughts on illness coming from our past lives

Edgar Casey was known as the “Sleeping Prophet”. He was one of the most influential medical intuitives during the 20th century. He diagnosed, treated and healed many using natural herbs, nutrition, visualization, soul information and empowerment to help patients heal themselves with his guidance. He was truly a man and healer ahead of his time.

The following is an excerpt on his thoughts about our illnesses coming from past life times as well as our present.

“The mind is a focus of other healing principles. The unconscious mind plays a role in many illnesses and diseases. One example of this is the karmic factor in health problems. Memories from previous incarnations, stored in the soul mind, can trigger problems in the body. Of course, we shouldn’t go so far as to suppose that every health challenge has past-life roots; nevertheless, the perspective of reincarnation can help us understand what we could possibly be dealing with as we seek healing.

The familiar Cayce axiom, ―Mind is the builder,‖ leads us to wonder exactly which attitudes and emotions best foster healing. The readings emphasize several:

  §  Self-acceptance. As we rid ourselves of self-condemnation, we make room for healing forces to enter.

  §  Optimism and hope. We’re encouraged to expect healing.

  §  Patience. It’s much easier and quicker to destroy health than it is to rebuild it. 
We need to be willing to patiently invest whatever time is required. 
Alongside these specific attitudes and emotions, we’re invited to use the creative potential of visualization to stimulate our own healing. The mind’s image- making capacity can be directed in such a way that we ―see‖ the healing transformation taking place. This is not something that’s accomplished in a single visualization session. Like all the Cayce health-promoting approaches, it requires persistence and works best in conjunction with other healing methods. 
Perhaps the most important principle of the mind’s relationship to healing concerns purposefulness. A person can experience temporarily an outer healing – that is, in the physical body only – yet still be spiritually sick. What cures the soul? A commitment to a purposeful life. Not just any purpose, but instead one that reflects care for other people. 
On occasion a reading from Cayce would pose this question to the person who was ill: What would you do with your life if you were healed? 
What would the body be healed for? That it might gratify its own physical appetites? That it might add to its own selfishness? Then (if so) it had better remain as it is. . . But first the change of heart, the change of mind, the change of purpose, the change of intent. 3124-2 
The position of Cayce’s psychic source was simply this: Why correct the physical condition unless there’s also going to be an inner correction? People who are looking for both inner and outer healing are the best candidates for restored health and vitality. In Cayce’s philosophy, healing should equip us to be more useful to others. 
With this ideal of service in mind, we might also wonder just how we can be channels of healing to others. What principles govern our efforts to be healers to those for whom we have concern? One principle is based on the spiritual connections that exist between all people. It states that as we bring the experience of oneness into our own consciousness, it can profoundly help someone else experience oneness, attunement, and healing. Cayce’s way of putting it was, ―…raising the Christ Consciousness in self to such an extent as it may flow out of self to him thou would direct it to.‖ (281-7) 
For this to be most effective, the recipient must desire such help and have requested healing prayer. Of course, we can always pray for someone, even if that

individual hasn’t asked us. But it’s important that we not assume we know what’s needed in any person’s life. For one who hasn’t specifically asked for prayer, we can simply offer prayers of protection and blessing, rather than try to direct healing energies to that person or for a specific condition.

It is also important to remember that each reading was given for an individual. It must be emphasized that no suggested treatments for any particular ailments should be ―lifted‖ from any individual reading and tried by another individual except under the supervision of and with the cooperation of a physician or licensed health care professional. However, there were many suggestions that were given over and over, and these can be studied to find how they apply to ourselves. These healing principles can be grouped in four categories that referred to as CARE.

Circulation – moving the blood around the body through therapies such as massage or spinal manipulation

Assimilation – encouraging the body to pull the proper nutrients from the food by eating the proper foods and in the proper combinations

Relaxation – taking time to rest and let the body recuperate and counterbalance the daily activities

Elimination – removing the waste products from the body through therapies such as sweats, colonics, and fume baths

We do not advocate a do-it-yourself process. Please seek out the advice of a health professional before implementing any recommendation.

In summary, the Cayce readings remind us that our natural state is wholeness and health. An innate wisdom within ourselves knows what’s needed for healing. We should expect to get well, and we should be willing to do our part to make it possible. ―Those that expect little of the Lord receive little; those that expect much receive much – if they live it!‖ 1424-1″

 

Hypnosis Accepted by the Mayo Clinic

Research Shows Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy

 

In an article published in NaturalNews, author Steven G. Jones wrote:

The effectiveness of hypnosis is often questioned because the cause of hypnotic phenomenon is not yet known. Research has been conducted on hypnosis for hundreds of years. Thousands of studies have been performed, yet the origination of hypnosis has not yet been realized. The Mayo Clinic has found hypnosis to be very effective and beneficial with a variety of disorders. Hypnosis does not always work the same way for everyone, but its effectiveness cannot be denied.

The Mayo Clinic defines hypnosis as being an altered state of consciousness. There are many changes that occur while a person is in a trance-like state. A person is able to focus their attention in a more direct way while under hypnosis. People are also more open to suggestion, which often helps people make changes in their thought process and in their actions. While in a hypnotic state, people tend to be less critical and more believing. The Mayo Clinic believes that the purpose of hypnosis is a therapeutic technique to help you understand and gain more control over your behavior, actions, emotions, or physical well-being.

Researchers and doctors at the Mayo Clinic are not sure how exactly hypnosis works, but current research points to a mind-body connection through nerves, hormones, and chemicals in the brain and body. Hypnosis is best used in conjunction with other forms of therapy. The Mayo Clinic lists the following benefits of hypnosis: changing negative habits (stop-smoking), reduce stress and anxiety, control pain, relieve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), lower blood pressure, reduce frequency and intensity of migraines, treat asthma, and heal skin disorders.

The Mayo Clinic also puts many hypnosis myths to rest. Many people think that under hypnosis, they will have no free will. This is untrue; under hypnosis people have a heightened state of concentration, but they are in complete control. Another myth is that a hypnotherapist can control people under hypnosis. The truth is that a hypnotherapist serves as a guide and cannot make anyone do something that they do not want to do. It is also not true that people can become hypnotized without consent. Hypnosis involves a person`s willingness to participate (Goal Oriented Hypnotherapy).

The Mayo Clinic is a one of the leaders in research in the medical field. Their research of hypnotherapy is evidence-based (Hypnosis). They are a reputable source of information on the topic of hypnotherapy and medicine.

Migraine Headaches-Case study- Past life origin and healing

SEVERE MIGRANE HEADACHES

 

                                 BACKGROUND

 

IN DECEMBER OF 2005, A CLIENT CAME TO ME PRESENTING SYMPTOMS OF SEVERE MIGRANE HEADACHES. DURING A HISTORY INTAKE SHE INFORMED ME THAT SINCE HER BABY HAD BEEN BORN, THREE MONTHS EARLIER, SHE HAD BEEN GETTING 17 MIRGANES A WEEK. WHEN ASKED WHEN SHE FIRST REMEMBERED GETTING THE FIRST MIRGRANE IN THIS LIFE, SHE RECOUNTED IT HAPPENING AT THE ONSET OF HER FIRST MENSTUATION. HOWEVER, SHE WOULD ONLY GET THEM ONCE A MONTH AND ONLY ONE DAY OF HER PERIOD.

 

THIS CLIENT TOLD ME SHE HAD BEEN TO MANY DOCTORS, ESPECIALLY NEUROLOGIST, TO SEEK THEIR HELP. THEY FOUND NOTHING ORGANICALLY WRONG WITH HER AND ONLY OFFERED PAIN KILLERS. SHE FELT THAT THEY DIDN’T HELP AND THAT SHE COULD NOT FUNCTION WITH HER NEW BABY IN THIS PAIN. WHEN A HEADACHE WOULD COME ON SHE WOULD HAVE TO GO TO BED, WITH BLINDS SHUT AND THE ROOM DARKENED. OFTEN SHE WOULD VOMIT DUE TO THE PAIN. SHE SAID THESE MADE HER FEEL “TRAPPED.”

 

I RECEIVED ADDITIONAL HISTORY ABOUT HER FAMILY, HER HUSBAND AND THE CHILD BIRTH, NONE OF WHICH SOUNDED SUSPICIOUS REGARDING THE HEADACHES.

                                            

                                                TREATMENT

 

 

 

WE AGREED THAT I WOULD PUT HER UNDER HYPNOSIS AND ASK THAT SHE GO TO THE ROOT OF THE MIRGRANES, TO SEE WHAT WAS CAUSING THEM.

 

WHEN UNDER, MY CLIENT WENT INTO A PAST LIFETIME AROUND THE EARLY 1800S. SHE SAW HERSELF LIVING IN A SMALL HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY, ON A FARM. WHEN ASKED TO LOOK BACK OVER THE FIRST 10 YEARS OF HER LIFE TO SEE IF ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT HAPPENED, SHE CONTRACTED, AND STARTED CRYING. SHE SAID HER FATHER HAD RAPED HER AFTER HER MOTHER PAST AWAY. SHE BECAME PREGNANT, FEELING “TRAPPED” AND ASHAMED. SHE STAYED AT HOME MOST OF THE TIME DOING CHORES AND DISASSOCIATING TO COPE. THROUGH BREATH WORK AND VISUALIZATION I HAD HER RELEASE THE FEELING OF BEING “TRAPPED” AND THE DEEP SHAME SHE CARRIED. SHE WAS 13 YEARS OLD WHEN THIS HAPPENED.

 

AS I PROGRESSED HER FURTHER TO 15YEARS OLD , SHE SAW HERSELF WALKING IN TOWN WITH HER BABY. FEELING OUT OF HER BODY, SHE GOT HIT BY A HORSE AND WAGON, HITTING HER HEAD ON THE STREET AND DYING.  DEATH CAME SO FAST SHE HAD NO TIME TO THINK OF ANYTHING BEFORE SHE DIED.

 

I TOOK HER TO FIND A GUIDE IN THE SPIRITUAL DEMENSION SO WE COULD ASK SOME QUESTIONS. WHEN SHE FOUND HER GUIDE WE ASKED HOW THAT LIFE AFFECTED HER MIRGRANES IN THIS LIFE .

WE WERE TOLD THAT THE RAPE, PREGNANCY, AND DEATH WERE ALL TIED TOGETHER. THE HEAD TRAUMA AT DEATH RESULTED AS SHE CARRIED THE TRAUMA OF CONCEPTION. THIS EXPLAINED WHY SHE PRESENTED WITH HEADACHES BOTH AT MENSTRUATION AND AFTER CHILD BIRTH. THE BODY ‘S CELLULAR MEMORY WAS TRIGGERD BY HER CONNECTION TO AGE AND THE CONCEPTION OF HER BABY. CONCEPTION AND HEAD TRAUMA ONCE AGAIN REVISITED.

 

                                              RESULTS

 

MY CLIENT CALLED SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER OUR SESSION TO INFORM ME THAT HER MIGRANES HAD DISAPPEARED BUT THAT SHE OCCASIONALLY STILL GETS HEADACHES.

WHEN WE ASKED HER GUIDE HOW MANY LIFETIMES DOES SHE NEED TO RELEASE FROM TO CLEAR THE HEADACHES, WE WERE TOLD 3 MORE.

 

MY CLIENT CAN NOW FUNCTION AS A MOTHER AND WIFE, WITHOUT FEELING ‘TRAPPED”, OR IN SEVERE PAIN. SHE WILL BE COMING TO ME TO DO THE OTHER 3 LIFETIMES SO WE CAN CLEAR ALL OF HER HEADACHES.

 

MY CLIENTS DOCTORS ARE AMAZED THAT SHE NO LONGER SUFFERS FROM HER MIGRANES.

What is causing your weight? Can you lift it out of the Past?

 

Image

 

We have all struggled with weight issues, be it that we need to lose weight or gain weight. We try diets, exercise, hypnosis, and psychotherapy among other “solutions” for resolve. Most of the time they don’t work.

Could it be that our weight issue comes from a past life? The following client came in with her weight issue and was surprised to find that it did in fact come from a past life.

The following is an excerpt from my book as one of many stories or lifetimes causing eating issues.

 

 

 

Weight Issues

 

 

I Don’t Deserve to Eat

 

 

Silvia came to see me about feelings of unworthiness but one issue was causing her health to fail. Silvia was anorexic. She became frightened that the last doctor told her if she didn’t put on some weight soon that her organs would start failing her and she could die,

 

Intention:

 

            Let’s go back to the root of your eating disorder.

 

 

Silvia saw herself as a ten-year-old boy outside, working in a field but with no hair and what looked to her like pajamas. She felt great fear, as soon as I asked her how she felt emotionally. When I asked her when she saw her mother last, she remarked she was about eight years old and that there were many people yelling as they took her away from her frightened mother. Silvia was shipped off to a concentration camp along with other German children like herself. She felt very alone and hungry.

They found out that she knew how to play the piano. Silvia was quite an accomplished pianist at seven years old. Her mother started giving her lessons at four years old and she played like she had played for lifetimes. She would create and compose music for the piano as early as five and learned new music very quickly.

When the soldiers heard about her they requested she come to their quarters to play. They would reward her with fine food and drink. Silvia learned very quickly to please the soldiers in order to eat well. She would feel guilty since so many were so hungry. Silvia was also not a very strong boy. She was a bit frail in that life and was grateful not to have to carry the heavy stones that the other children were ordered to carry and not to have to get so dirty outside doing that chore. She had to share a bed with those other children on a dusty mattress with a torn grey blanket that smelled.

At age 15 Silvia said the Americans were trying to help and the war was almost over. Her job was not only piano playing anymore but to take her fellow Jews to the showers or ovens to be gassed or burned. She felt so much guilt that not only could she eat and stay clean but that she had to betray her own kind.

Silvia would sneak some food now to others to help rid her from the deep guilt she held from her new jobs.  On one evening a soldier followed Silvia back to the barrack to witness her giving some of her food to the others. They pulled her out in front of the others and shot her for sharing her food.

 

Last Thoughts:

If I kept my food I wouldn’t be put to death!

 

Lesson:

Selflessness

 

Awareness and Connection:

Silvia understood the importance of food in that life. She survived only because of her piano playing.  She lived for years well fed and clean while her family and others starved and died around her. She carried so much guilt that finally when she had to bring the others to meet their death she no longer could take her guilt and gave them what food she could. Silvia saw why she felt she didn’t deserve to eat in this life. She felt she should be punished for all of those who died in the camps due to starvation, when she could eat.

We discussed that during those horrific times one had to focus on their own survival in order to stay alive. It was not her fault that the Germans made her do such awful jobs at the end, and if she rebelled, she surely would have been put to death even earlier.

The soldiers liked Silvia in that life due to her talents alone, but put her down when ever they got the chance. Watching her fellow Jews and herself be treated worse than dogs, Silvia came into this life feeling unworthy. Food was her only resolve of self-punishment here since others died due to starvation in that life.

Silvia was not surprised that she was in that lifetime. She always got physically ill when anyone would mention the camps or if she had any contact with any information about the camps. She was sad but fully understood what she was doing. I explained that she should now honor those that died of starvation and feed her well. This way she could feel healthy and worthy of being a Jew and a human being. It has taken months for Silvia to change her habits but she is finally eating well and honoring all those that perished during the holocaust from starvation.

Is Reincarnation Real? Is Science Real?

Image

 

 

There are those who believe in reincarnation and there are those who don’t. Is it because we feel we are betraying our own religious belief system? Is it because people may think we are strange or foolish since there is no science to support it?

Could it be that we are in fear of what we have done in this life that we fear the idea of karma for our next life? Perhaps it is all of the above.

When I started my practice 25 years ago, I summoned different religious leaders of the community. I had a Catholic Priest, an Inter-faith Minister, a Rabbi, and a Buddhist Monk gather in my office, in order to see if I had offended anyone’s religious belief when practicing Past Life Regression. After all, it was based on the premise of reincarnation. I was quite surprised to hear the reaction of all of the participants. The Catholic Priest said they had believed in reincarnation up to the period when Constantine came into power. Constantine felt if people knew they had another lifetime to live after this one that they might not work hard in this one since they would be given a second chance. I was quite surprised when the Rabbi agreed that Judaism also gave up reincarnation but during the enlightenment period yet for the same reason. However, orthodox Jews still believe in it today.

The Inter-Faith Minister was more embracing of reincarnation as he was of all faiths. The Monk of course believed in reincarnation since their religion had been based off of this for thousands of years.

I was astounded to find that every religion basically believed in reincarnation at some time in history. I felt better that I didn’t have to offend anyone when doing my work.

The irony is that one doesn’t have to believe in reincarnation to have a successful regression or healing.

15 years ago, a client stepped into my office and changed my life forever. She had come wanting to stop biting her nails. However, after taking a history intake I realized we had a lot more work to do. I will call her Sara. Sara was basically on suicides doorstep. Her childhood was filled with shame. .She was sexually abused,

Hated by her parents, and moved down to Florida when she was 16 to meet an alcoholic boyfriend who got her pregnant? Sara’s brother sent down a friend to

rescue Sara and bring her back to N.Y. Sara ended up marrying this young man who rescued her. Finally a nice person who could take care of her and her baby.

This husband was a NYC policeman. In fact, it was he who gave her my one and only ADD I put in the Penny Saver magazine of which I had clients for a whole year.

In our first session I put Sara under hypnosis and asked her subconscious to go back to the root of her nail biting. This is where our journey began.

Sara went back to a life in the 1920’s to a place neither she nor I ever heard of. She said it was in Claremont, Virginia or Mt. Clare Virginia. Sara was a boy in that lifetime who would spend hours watching his catatonic mother who had electric shock treatments for her post partum depression, sit rocking with her hands over head waving them around. All that little boy wanted to do was to stop her hands. He would put his own fingers in his mouth as if to control hers. This was were the cellular memory came from and why she bit her nails here when feeling stressed or out of control. As we went further into the lifetime a psychodrama emerged. The little boy was sent off to boarding school since the mother could not spend time with him. The father found a mistress to share his time with since he too couldn’t be with his wife either. When the boy was 10 years old the father accidentally ran him down while driving an old car and talking with his mistress. The boy, Sara, became brain damaged. He was put into a psychiatric hospital since that was all they had in those days to accommodate brain damage and it’s effects. At age 21 he is taken by a monk to a fourth of July celebration at the town square. He was now a mental age of about

Four years old. He spotted a little girl who was intrigued with him and they walked off together. He later raped the girl not really knowing what he was doing. She ran back screaming and crying to her family at the celebration. They tried to lynch him on a tree until the sheriff came to save him in his 1920’s pick-up truck. He was brought back to the hospital where 3 guards beat, tortured, and killed him.

This was a difficult lifetime to go back to but it helped her to identify the same people who were in that life as being most of the same people in her family in this life. She was able to forgive the abuser in this life when she realized she raped the little girl and was her abuser in that 1920s life. She understood finally why her parents hated her and were always ashamed of her in this life. Her father was the sheriff in that last life where he was ashamed of her as that boy. We hold cellular memory and so they were still ashamed here and never knew why. Sara healed so beautifully in fully understanding why she had to go through everything she did in this life. She was able to forgive everyone in her life here.

After 15 regressions back to the same lifetime to acquire more information that she requested, Sara asked me if we could go to Virginia to see if we could find pieces of that lifetime. I agreed to help her validate her experience and healing, and for me to validate my work and that reincarnation is real.

We went down to Virginia since we found a Claremont Virginia on a map. We also found the name of the psychiatric hospital and where that was located. We knew somehow we would find more once we got down there. We found everything and more. It is one thing to facilitate Past Life Regressions in my office, but walking through the memories and finding all that she told me in the regression was like walking through a twilight zone. We found the hospital, the house the boy lived in, the Ale house the father would go to with his girlfriend, the boarding school he attended, a pub her dad drank at, the place where the 4th of July celebration was held, where she met the little girl, a museum that had the electric shock machine that was invented by a Dr. Galt in the late 1800s. We even found a school picture of a little boy with his class who looked like Sara today.

The total journey was Divinely guided and we were led by synchronicities. I won’t tell more since it will be coming out in my book, but it was a journey that changed my life.

There was no science that could prove it right or wrong. There will always be skeptics, but Sara and I know that we found everything she told me about from her regression, which proved to us that it was real. That reincarnation is real.

A part of my discovery- learning about past life regression

“Go with your gut, or knowingness,” was the message of the day, and it was not lost on me. I pursued the path, gaining greater confidence with each step forward. I joined a professional organization, The Association for Past Life Research and Therapy, leading and participating in workshops given by leading regression therapists, sharing experiences and techniques. I was astounded to see validation, results, to share the experiences of others and to test my own.  I was astounded to see that far from being an innovative new science, Past Life Regression had a noble history, as deep and rich as our dream life and as memorable as the archetypes of our existence. The array of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, healers of all kinds and spiritual leaders who were using this therapy in their practices surprised me.

It was still a closet science, and we all felt a sense of vulnerability. How could we be sure? How could we define our methodology and at the same time establish our credibility in a world of the material, the scientific, the ultra-rational and ultimately non-experiential? Many were keeping it quiet, fearful of risking reputations that had taken so long to establish.

Yet an iceberg was moving, a tremendous shift was underway in ourselves (this was the age of a New Millennium after all) and in the psyche of our very planet. We all started finding many, many more people open to such findings, and many clinicians were experiencing, chronicling and validating the same phenomena. Of course the most important criteria was the increased speed in healing the client. Amazingly, what could take years of traditional psychotherapy was being accomplished sometimes within weeks!  We were not abandoning old systems, rather, we were absorbing the new, and the results were spectacular. We saw amazing healing on many levels as emotions were released and connections to the present life made miraculous physical healings happen as well.

The discipline known as Past Life Regression Therapy grew from a tiny group of practitioners to a well-respected and fast-growing field worldwide.  People seeking connections, healing, and to repair psychic wounds – or wounds to the psyche – found help with Past Life Regression Therapy. Now, there are therapists practicing all over the world in the professional association alone.

This therapy has been found helpful for almost everything whether mental, spiritual, physical, emotional or energetic in nature.  As I continued my work, many themes, lessons and theology blossomed. Important information emerged that mankind needs to know.  Footsteps in the Sands of Time: Past Life Dramas – Present Life Lessons represents what a sacred tool this work is to my clients and a step in my own spiritual growth. I now seek not only to share this amazing work, the timely stories and spiritual knowledge, but to help pull together what it is we all need to learn from this information. For me, life is unfolding as a script that we put together before entering our physical body, one that will

help us understand what we need to learn, with whom we need to learn it, and the choices that can always change our past, present and future karma.

We need to know who we were to better understand who we are.   In this constant process of remembering our pasts comes a shedding of our bodies, a cycle of incarnation into other lives and bodies all drawn together by a miraculous spiritual flow that science is only beginning to define and quantify, but what the spirit has known all along. We have the tools within us to do so, through prayer, the unconscious, an open heart and mind, a power, and wonder that can cross lifetimes and dimensions.

We are all the same people, each sharing the same breath from the Supreme Being that has given us life. We have all been the victim and the abuser, all been Chinese, African, Jewish, Catholic, handicapped or kingly. Therefore we need not judge others since we have been where they are now or will be. We have forgotten how to live our basic truths of how to love, be at peace, live in harmony with humans, animals and the environment that nourish and shelter us. Our greatest obstacle is how to get there – our greatest barrier is intolerance – both of others and of the beauty within ourselves.

 

Near death experiences reported around the world have indicated that when we leave this world we are our own judges. We witness a life review and know where we have failed to learn, where we have created good and what we must do to compensate for our missteps. We know that we will walk into the next life better prepared, with greater wisdom and greater experience, but we must remember why we have come and what we must do to achieve our lesson. It is up to us to accept without judgment the lives we have led, trusting that we chose this life to learn from, and bring ourselves closer to the oneness that we know as God. I will share my stories hoping that something may touch what you need to learn while on your spiritual journey.
