What Is Meant By A Past Regression?

By John Paul Harding

As reincarnation gains ever more acceptance in our society, you may have been hearing about something called past life regression. This is exactly what the name implies; and it is something that a growing number of people are interested in. When we know more about our past lives, it gives us insight into our lives in the here and now.

One thing which can help you to get started is to keep a past lives journal. This is where you can write down your emotions and thoughts, even the most trivial which seem to be out of place with the experiences which have shaped you as a person in your present lifetime. Some of the things which seem to be of particular importance to many include fears of or attractions to specific places and things, whether or not you have ever been there or seen them for yourself; at least in this lifetime. Your journal can help you to start drawing connections and piecing together the puzzle of a past life or lives.

A past lives journal could begin as a list of things you like and do not like, fears, favorite foods, places and other cultural details. You should also note any predispositions and talents you may have - anything which says something about who you are may turn out to be important as you decipher the clues to your past lives.

Your dreams may also contain some clues to your past lives - be sure to take notes on anything from your dreams which seem to belong to a previous life. However, you should keep in mind that much of the content of your dreams will come from the present.

You could also try past life regression.

You may have to go see an experienced past life regression therapist. These therapists are skilled in taking you through a regression step by step and then helping you to interpret what you have gathered from this experience. To accomplish this, the therapist will use hypnosis. However, self hypnosis may also be an option.

Meditation is another technique which is used to learn about past lives.

For a lot of people, it is hard to induce a past life regression experience using meditation. We are often skeptical of what we receive during these experiences; but in order to make the most of your regression, you have to learn to trust your instincts and to listen to yourself.

While meditating, useful information about your past lives can come to you. You should write down everything which you experience during your meditation; this will help you to figure out which of these pieces may be tied to a former life.

Those who have some difficulty meditating often find aids including visual focal points, incense or relaxing music or sounds to be helpful. There are guided meditation tapes you can try as well as recordings of relaxing natural soundscapes.

You can also use binaural beats.

These are specially designed audio recordings which contain specific frequencies which can help you reach a deep meditative state quickly. While you meditate, choose a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and that you can sit or lie down comfortably. As you begin, make a conscious effort to relax your body and maintain a positive mindset.

You need to relax your muscles and clear your mind. When one of those thoughts of your everyday concerns comes through, simply acknowledge it and move on. It may take several tries before you can successfully meditate, but you will get there - and the answers to your questions about past lives may start coming to you.

Past life regression can even help you to cope with problems in your present life as well as give you information about the past. Some even learn that they have known the people they know now in a past life.

Reincarnation in some form or another is a part of many religious traditions. Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs all believe in the concept of Karma. To put this concept into the simplest possible terms, it is the principle that the actions you take in your present life determine the circumstances of your next life. Knowing more about your past lives can help you to live a better life in the present.

The most important thing is to come to this experience with an open mind. You have to be able to accept information and be willing to learn from your past in order to improve the way you live now.

There are many who hold the opinion that a regression through a past life can help to free you of mental blocks and improve your mental health and your outlook on life.

When you can deal with the problems of your past, you may be able to make positive changes by knowing where you have gone wrong in past lives and make better decisions in the present as a result. A regression can show you the way towards living a better life with a greater degree of kindness to yourself and others.

You might even find that you have talents or abilities which you were not even aware of. If you see yourself in a past life as an expert pianist, for instance, you will most likely find that if you take up the instrument you will be an accomplished player quickly. Discovering these latent abilities can add to your quality of life immensely.

As long as you have an open mind and are ready to learn from your past lives, there are many benefits which past life regression may hold for you.
