“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.
