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.
