Past Life Therapy
Past Life Therapy is a holistic therapy because it works on the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. During Past-Life-Regression the subject is regressed to another lifetime.
In other words, the subject is helped to experience or relive past lives. The ‘regressor’ is the one who does this process of regression. In the process of regression the subject is first guided into deep states by giving constant suggestions. After reaching a ‘satisfactory’ level of altered state of consciousness, the subject is first regressed gradually down to the in-utero state (the time when subject was in the mother’s womb) and then gradually to previous lifetimes. This is done to sort out problems that a person may be experiencing in the present.
The reason for undertaking past-life-therapy is to improve the quality of our life, right now. Its chief objective is to make our life easier, better and more fulfilling, in this present moment.
Past life therapy is a root cause therapy as it enables extremely deep change to take place at the very source of the problem. It does not deal with external symptoms. It directly addresses the internal cause.
Past-life-regression-therapy is based on the principles of cause and effect (also known as law of karma). Something that has been set in motion at some time in the past results in a corresponding effect on a person’s present physical, emotional, mental or spiritual well being, at this moment. This cause may be a past desire, a past thought, past feeling, a past emotion, a past vow, a past promise, a past decision, a past evasion or a past traumatic experience.
Benefits of Past Life Therapy:
Past-Life-Regression helps to heal chronic diseases: Past-Life-Regression helps individuals to understand the karmic patterns involved and the resultant energy blockages. It is these energy blockages that manifest as diseases, which are sometimes chronic. The understanding that flows on reliving / reveiwing these blockages clears the energy blockages and thereby the disease is healed. For example a person who has had a past life wherein he/she was never allowed to express his/her views or who had to pay a heavy price for having expressed them. In this lifetime, such a person may have a disease of the throat, which constantly hinders the person’s ability to talk normally. After reliving the past life and emerging with an understanding of the root cause, the energy blockages get cleared and the person gets healed of his/her throat disease.
Past-Life-Regression helps overcome Fears and Phobias: Past-Life-Regression releases individuals from all kinds of fears and phobias by bringing about an understanding of the specific causes of these fears and phobias. The causes are mostly present in the previous lives. They could also be present in the earlier part of the current life. For example a person who had this fear of closed spaces (claustrophobia) had experienced a past life where he was buried alive in an earthquake. Once he relived this trauma, he was able to overcome his claustrophobia immediately.
Past-Life-Regression improves one’s inter-personal relationships: Past-Life-Regression improves one’s interpersonal relationships by causing the person to understand the past life relationships with those individuals. Till this is understood, clashes and friction with one’s present lifetime’s relations is inevitable. Once the understanding flows, the person is able to see the larger perspective and therefore the relationships are improved or ‘healed’.
Past-Life-Regression frees us from the fear of death once and for all: Past-Life-Regression frees us from the fear of death once and for all. The fear of death is the biggest of all fears plaguing mankind. Past-Life-Regression helps us to explore our past lives and through this exploration we realize that we are eternal beings. We understand that death is a mere transition from one state to another and that the essence of our being continues into eternity as we have lived before and are going to live again after ‘death’. Moreover, once an individual has relived his/her past lives, he/she validates this understanding in the light of the personal experiences had. This removes the fear of death once and for all.
Hence Past Life Therapy assists us in acheiving- physical, emotional, mental & spiritual well being. It improves the quality of our life by releasing the blocks / problems at various levels of our being / in various aspects of our life. A person is able to acheive a sense of inner connectedness, happiness, peace & a sense of purpose in his/her life.

Past Life Therapy – Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. How does Past Life Therapy help me to overcome the problems being faced by me at present?
A1. We are the sum total of all the experiences of all our past lives. The effects of your past actions will be felt by you in your present. Almost all of the problems being faced now (health problems, psychosomatic diseases, relationship issues, recurring negative patterns in life situations, lack of clarity about the purpose of your life, stagnation in spiritual growth etc.) have their root causes in past lives. Past-Life-Regression works on the principle of cause and effect and helps removes the effects by addressing the root causes. By going to a root cause and understanding how it has affected the present, profound natural healing takes place automatically. Past-Life-Regression works simultaneously on Body, Mind, Intellect, and Spirit and heals at all levels.

Q3. If the person regressed sees something traumatic or unpleasant; will it not have a negative impact?
A3. There is an old saying – “To relive is to relieve”. Once a traumatic or unpleasant situation is relived during the regression, it results in greater understanding at deeper levels of the psyche. In fact, it is trauma that is buried deep inside our subconscious that is the cause of many unexplainable problems faced in this lifetime. Therefore, once the buried trauma is brought to the conscious awareness through regression, the problems start mitigating automatically and naturally.
Q4. Is it possible that a person undergoing Past Life Therapy gets stuck in the trance state and cannot come back to normal waking consciousness?
A4. A person undergoing Past Life Therapy always comes back to normal waking consciousness however deep the trance is. This is in much the same way as a person having a dream always wakes up! Past Life Therapy is an altered state of consciousness similar to a dream state wherein hitherto inaccessible memories are accessed.
Q5. If we really had past-lives, would we not remember them automatically?
A5. In reality there are many an occasion when we ‘remember’ our past lives. At times, these remembrances occur spontaneously. On many other occasions, certain external events or stimulus can act as a trigger and the memory of our past life/lives surfaces. This could happen for instance:
- a)When you meet someone for the first time but you get the uncanny feeling that you know that person extremely well.
- b)While visiting a foreign country for the first time and knowing where a building or road is.
- c) When you are in a situation and get a feeling that you have been in exactly the same situation in the past though you have no evidence of such a situation in this lifetime.
- d)When you meet a person for the first time and have an immediate feeling of lack of trust for the person.
- e)When you meet a person for the first time and you get the feeling of immense love for and emotional attachment to that person (this is commonly known as love at first sight).
- f)When as child you used to have (you may still have them) memories of having lived in a different place in a different family and in different life circumstances. The narration of such experiences usually fell on deaf ears and you were gradually conditioned to believe that those past-life experiences and memories of those past-life experiences were not valid.
There are many other ways in which situations in this lifetime trigger our past-life memories. Most of us, however, are conditioned to ignore those subtle intuitive messages.
Q6. If I undergo a Past-Life-regression Session and experience one or more past-lives, will I be able to remember the experience after the session is over?
A6. Yes. However, the clarity with which you remember may vary from person to person and session to session. The experience becomes a part of you and sometimes, more memories are triggered after the session resulting in spontaneous recall of past lives.
Q7. How many sessions do I need to take?
A7. I recommend three to five sessions for adequate level of clarity to be achieved. However, this is not a hard and fast rule and the actual number of sessions required varies based on the complexity of the issues to be resolved. I normally review the situation after the first session. If the response is good, then we go ahead with the second and third sessions on consecutive days (only one session can be given per day). If not, a gap of at least one month is given after which sessions can be taken again. During this period, you will be required to practice meditation, which helps to open you up and clear the blocks that might be preventing you from experiencing your past lives.
Q8. Is there any age limit for a person to undergo Past-Life-Regression?
A8. There is no rigid age limit. However we prefer that children are at least 12 years old. It is important to be able to hear the therapist clearly, follow instructions and explain what you are experiencing.
Q9. I do not have any specific problem. However, I am curious to know my past-lives. Is it still all right to undergo Past-Life-Regression?
A9. Curiosity is as good a reason any other! However, in our experience, we have observed that many people who come to us thinking initially that have no issues actually realize that they do have significant issues to be resolved. Past-Life-Regression helps to resolve such issues and gain clarity about the purpose of your life.
Q10. My child is a spastic. How will I be able to find out the root cause through past life regression?
A10. It may not be possible to regress the child. However, it would be immensely beneficial if one or both of the parents undergo past-life-therapy. This would provide a lot of clarity and understanding about why the child has chosen the disability in this life and also why, as parents, you have chosen to this particular life-situation.
