  • What Past Life Regression Is Like…

    PAST LIVES are something that have always fascinated humanity, and if you’re curious about seeing yours – there’s a way that you can.

    For the first time ever, I had a past life regression after leaving it on my to-do list for many years. I never found the right person to take me through the process until I finally met Daniel @ The Past Life Regressionist.

    I’ve tried and tested so many different types of readings, but this was like no other because I was the one experiencing it all…

    When you have a past life regression, it’s not someone telling you what they see. It’s you experiencing everything that you can see from your own past lives.

    Our past lives are something that we casually refer to in conversation, like saying that people we know are “probably from a past life” (for more about this, see my other blog How To Know If You Have A Past Life Connection With Someone).

    You may also feel inexplicably enamored by certain places or styles, for example, I’ve always felt attached to Japan and when I had my Reiki attunement this just got even stronger. When I looked around my house, I noticed that there were white flying cranes, delicate fan prints and oriental waves emblazoned all over my interiors, bedsheets and mugs.

    The funny thing? I’ve never even been to Japan!


    ⋆☽ What is Past Life Regression? ☾⋆


    If you connect with the idea that your soul comes back to Earth again and again and is born into different bodies over many different lifetimes, then that’s what you’ll be exploring more during your past life regression.

    What many people don’t know about past life regression is that it’s an immensely healing experience.

    We can hold on to so much trauma from our past lives where we were betrayed, killed, silenced or heartbroken in some way, and then that stays in our energy field where it can still affect us.

    By going through this regression experience, we can unlock the wounds which we haven’t been able to fully heal so far because we didn’t make them in this life. 


    ⋆☽ What happens in a regression session? ☾⋆


    As The Past Life Regressionist is based in California and I’m in England, we held our session over Zoom. This would have been the case for any regressionist I used though, as I had my session during the pandemic.

    And if you’re wondering – no, it didn’t lessen my experience at all!

    I also did an interview with the regressionist on my podcast to share more about how taking people through their other lifetimes works. Listen to Time Travel with The Past Life Regressionist here 🎙️

    A questionnaire was sent to me beforehand so that I could get clear on my intentions for the meeting and anything that I particularly wanted to look into, and then the first hour of the session was spent having a consultation.

    I’ve had hypnotherapy before – 3 sessions for generalised anxiety disorder + 2 for fear of public speaking – and the process was very similar to that. The state of hypnosis that I went into also felt the same as when I had hypnotherapy.

    I feel obliged to mention here that there is some serious stigma around what “hypnosis” really means! In absolutely no way are you at the mercy of your regressionist. You are entirely conscious and aware, but you’re just in a very relaxed state that I’d describe as like being in a deep meditation.

    It was very easy for me to get into this state as I was lying on my sofa alone in my own home, under a nice blanket…

    Then, once it’s time to begin after the consultation, your practitioner talks you through the beginning of the regression to relax you and bring you through various states of consciousness; through an Alpha state to a Theta state.

    Once they’ve led you through the meditation, you’ll probably have some visualisation practice where you describe certain images so that you get used to saying exactly what you’re seeing in your mind.

    If you have any clairvoyant ability, then you’ll likely see your past lives in the same way as you see a vision. If you don’t, then it’s kind of like seeing movie images in your mind.

    I also found that my experience was very sentient too, for example, in one lifetime I knew I was poisoned from feeling very dizzy and like the room was spinning, and I was also moved to tears going into one of my other lifetimes because I was so upset at what happened.

    I don’t want any of these to frighten you though because, as I said before, I was completely in control and at any moment in the regression I could have instantly come out of it just by opening my eyes if I wanted to.


    ⋆☽ What did I see? ☾⋆


    Now, for the exciting part! What I actually saw…

    For me, my lifetimes moved in chronological order – ranging from 6000 BC to Victorian times. That said, I only saw 5 lifetimes so you can expect to just see the ones which are the most important for you to acknowledge and heal.

    My session was about 5 hours in total but I didn’t realise it at all. In the first lifetime that I saw, I was an Egyptian heir to the throne. But I wasn’t the son of a ruler as such – my father was a spiritual leader who was in charge at the time.

    There were pyramids (yep, just like you’d imagine) and I was stood watching a human sacrifice. I felt like something wasn’t quite right, as if they didn’t really get what spirituality meant (!) and I found it all very cold and ritualistic. The rituals meant everything in that lifetime.

    I was probably aged between 17-19 in the vision and when I asked myself why I died, that’s when the room started spinning and I realised that I’d been poisoned. Afterwards, I Googled whether human sacrifice took place in Egypt because I’d never heard of it before and that’s where I got the date of 6000 BC.

    On to the next lifetime I went…

    In the next lifetime, I was part of a jungle tribe and my existence was simple and beautiful; everyone was completely in tune with nature and astrology was a sacred part of how we ran our lives. I was being shown this lifetime as an example of how easy life can be and how wonderful it feels to be in flow with nature.

    Not much to learn here, but a welcome reminder of how good life can be.

    The next lifetime…

    Then I moved into the 1600’s where I was a lowly woman who lived in a village of huts between towering tall trees in a forest. A colonial man on a horse came in and set the village alight, making me fall to my knees screaming as I stared at a burning hut with my baby inside.

    I was so overcome with emotion that I started crying, which is unusual for me, but I was genuinely distraught. After doing some healing work with the regressionist, I saw my soul floating out of that body as if I’d managed to finally release the trauma that I’d been holding onto ever since.

    I don’t know about other regressionists, but Daniel has a specific technique to help you release any trauma from each lifetime if you need it.

    Now, for another beautiful lifetime!

    My beloved Japan… being a spiritual teacher and writer, and again, feeling so in tune with nature.

    Between Mount Fuji and the pink cherry blossom, there I was, living my best life! This was one for the memory books, and again – like the jungle life – is something that I can always try to attain while I’m here and in the lives still to come.

    The last one I saw…

    I was born a wealthy lady in a Victorian manor house and because of my class, I was fortunate enough to have an education. My heart was telling me that I wanted to write but the husband of the arranged marriage that I was in thought differently.

    I could see myself talking to the house staff, who were the only people that I really felt connected to, but then I’d get scolded and snatched away from them because we weren’t meant to mix with other classes. The aristocracy which could be seen from the outside as a blessing felt like a suffocating curse.

    I saw us stood by the fireplace arguing and him snatching the paper that I was writing on before throwing it into the fire. Again, emotion started to rise up and I felt furious, as though I absolutely couldn’t stand this man.

    No surprise… more healing and release work was required for this one!


    ⋆☽ What did I learn? ☾⋆


    The main thing I learned is that we still carry so much emotional baggage from other lifetimes.

    I can see how it would be easy to write it off as just illusions and metaphors rising up from our subconscious, which is why I believe it’s important to actually experience it before you make any kind of judgement.

    Otherwise, you have a very incomplete picture to base your assessment on.

    It confirmed some of the things that I already intuitively felt, like my attachment to certain places, and it helped me to reach some of the grief and trauma that I would never have been able to access here and now without the session.

    I saw a common theme of writing which I wasn’t surprised by at all, as writing is still my favourite thing to do. And I also crossed paths with some dear friends that, again – no surprise, were with me through many other incarnations.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Overall, I think that if you’ve been drawn to read this article then it’s for a reason. When we have that intuitive pull towards something like this, it’s because our soul senses that our time is coming and it’s almost ready to dive deeper.

    There might be something in a past life regression session for you that could give you the answers you haven’t found yet. My experience was profound, healing and will stay with me forever.

    If you decide to have one too, I hope that yours will be the same!

  • How To Know If You Have A Past Life Connection With Someone

    If you believe that we live many times over – in different lifetimes with different bodies – then you probably feel like you’ve met people again in this life who you’ve known before.

    Our soul holds energetic memories from different times and realities, but we experience amnesia when we are born into a new body. In the same way that we can’t remember things from when we were young children, we also don’t remember things from our past lives. We’re blocked from those memories so that they don’t take our attention away from the path that we need to walk and the lessons that we need to learn in this lifetime.

     

     

    However, many people have still accessed information from their past lives. For example, in my most recent life, I was a 17-year-old Vietnamese boy soldier in the Vietnam War. I abandoned my troop because they wouldn’t listen to my intuitive knowledge that our plan was going to fail; I ran away on my own, I was right, and they were all killed while I survived.

    After telling this to my friend Rachel Alyce, she said that she’d also been in the Vietnam War in her last life too. Even if you don’t have this kind of evidence and you’ve never had a past life reading, there are multiple ways to know if you’ve had a past life connection with someone.

    If there’s someone in mind that you’re wondering about, do any of these resonate?


    ⋆☽  You’re instantly, inexplicably drawn to them…  ☾⋆


    Have you ever felt so strongly drawn to someone, but you can’t quite put your finger on why?

    This is different from attraction in the usual sense, because it’s usually not romantically motivated. There is just something intriguing and captivating about them that pulls you in. It’s not what happens with every other person that you meet…

    It’s a feeling of deep soul recognition that’s hard to put a name on because of that amnesia I talked about, but there’s a magnetism there; the recognition of this person meaning more to you than the stranger that they are when they first present themselves to you.

    If you have gone through lifetimes with them before, then it’s likely that they will have an important role when you meet them again. That’s why you’re drawn towards them – because you’re meant to meet them at this point on your journey!


    ⋆☽  You quickly get back into it…  ☾⋆


    Within hours or days, chatting with them just feels like catching up with an old friend. You can skip the niceties and show yourself to them fully far quicker than you would with anyone else.

    The normal period of time that it might take for you to become acquainted with someone dramatically shortens, and you can hop into a closely knit relationship far quicker than you do with most people that you meet.

    It’s almost like you’re stepping back into a relationship with them, rather than starting a new one.


    ⋆☽  There’s a strong sense of familiarity…  ☾⋆


    You already know things about them, and you can sense inherent parts of their personality.

    There’s a level of knowingness between you and a distinct feeling of soul resonance.

    The strongest way to know if you have had a past life connection with them is because you feel like you have known them before.


    ⋆☽  There may be anger & frustrations far beyond what can be explained in this lifetime…  ☾⋆


    As well as feeling like you have known them before, you may also feel like there’s an invisible hatchet that can’t be buried for some reason.

    There’s something that either one or both of you will not let go of, but it can’t necessarily be explained by what’s happened in this lifetime. Maybe your relationship in this life has been quite good but there’s a simmering layer of resentment there, like a grudge which one or both of you can’t let go of.

    This could be caused by a trauma that you had together in a past life which was far more dramatic than anything which has happened this time around, like them stealing your lover or even murdering you!

    When this is the case, you have been brought back together in this lifetime to try to resolve that trauma and close the karmic pattern of anger by showing each other forgiveness.


    ⋆☽  Or maybe, you can see synastry in your birth charts…  ☾⋆


    If you want to look further into your past life connection with someone, a good astrologer might be able to do this for you.

    It’s often the South Node in your chart/s which is the indicator of a past life connection, however, as with anything astrology related, there is so much more to it. As well as finding out if you’ve had a past life connection together, you might also be able to see what kind of connection it was, such as teacher-student, friendship, or parent-child.

    If you’ve just met someone and immediately you want to see their birth chart for this reason, then there’s no doubt about it: you have a past life connection!

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    As with everything, the most important tool that you have for discerning whether someone featured in one of your old lives is your intuition! You can feel that sense of connection and how it surpasses all of the other people that you meet on a daily basis.

    If you want to look into this further, then you can go for astrology synastry and past life readings, but these are obviously coming from other people – and YOU are the person who was in the relationship before…

    So, ask yourself: how do they make you feel?

    What seems different about the relationship that you have?

    And is there a deeper layer of connection there which can’t be explained in this lifetime?
