Regression and Past Life Therapy

In addition to other specialized education and study in this field, both Dr. DelMonte and Kris Kistler have studied Past Life Therapy directly under Dr. Morris Netherton, world famous author of "Past Lives Therapy". ( 5 star Amazon rating - ISBN-10: 0688032982)

Many people do not understand the true meaning of Past Life Therapy. It does not require a belief in reincarnation or necessarily go into previous lives. Any time prior to the current day is actually considered "Past Life". Dr. Netherton has been using and teaching these techniques for over 40 years, and they have been proven to have powerful results in a significantly reduced time period compared to traditional talk therapy techniques alone.

Regression therapy is a process used for tapping into your mind to uncover past issues through hynotherapy, guided meditation, or visualization. The intention is to unlock patterns from past experiences and memories from our childhood and past life that is causing problems in our present life. After the reasons behind struggles have surfaced the therapist will enable the clients with tools for reaching reasonable degrees of acceptance and forgiveness for past actions and ultimately assist them in moving forward in life in a healthier fashion.

Regression therapy is unique and powerful in its results because it quickly gets to the root or core belief of deep seated client issues and restores balance in the emotions. It is a transformative hypnotherapy process where while in a state of hypnosis you re-experience selected past events in a detached, relaxed emotional state, heal past wounds, and learn new coping skills to process those events in a healthier fashion.

Everything we experience contains a certain amount of emotions, positive or negative. The greater the emotion the more it affects the physical systems. Love and fear are the two basic emotions. Love always affects the physical systems in a positive way. Fear is basic to the negative emotions of anger, guilt, resentment, hate and other negative expressions that offend the physical systems.

Everything you are today is a result of everything that has happened to you in the past. How you think, feel, and act in the present has been programmed over time by learned behavior and responses. These behaviors can be re-programmed and lead to new healthier responses with a greater understanding of ourselves and our past.

Hypnotic regression shows that emotions and a personality are present at birth. Reinforcement and/or change of the personality and emotions occur with conscious experience to become sub-conscious imprints in the new physical systems. Most emotions are re-experienced and/or reinforced by the average age of five. It appears that once a negative emotion is expressed enough to imprint the sub-conscious it becomes the basic cause of the physical deficiency that occurs later in life. The extent of these physical deficiencies are compatible to the intensity and/or accumulation of the emotion. Even though these negative emotional imprints can cause physical deficiencies at any time following an experience there appears to be an average of ten years from the first emotional imprint before the physical systems are severely damaged.

Every negative emotion, if not resolved within a reasonable period of time, will damage the physical systems that relate to the connecting emotion. Anger seems to cause headaches and migraines. Fear and insecurity cause chest and heart problems. Feet and leg problems relate to restrictions and lack of support. Knee and hip problems will also relate to a lack of support. Resentment offends the lower back, hips and other body systems expressing the condition we identify as arthritis. The upper back and neck problems indicate that the individual resents too much work or responsibility. Guilt and shame associate with psoriasis and other skin problems and when connected with fear and betrayal will offend the reproduction system. Aids and Herpes connect to the emotion of sexual betrayal. Every physical disorder is connected to a negative emotion or combination of emotions. The stress factor or intensity of the emotion determines the amount of damage to the physical systems. Emotional cancers are rage. Diabetes is rejection. Multiple Sclerosis is from an intense emotional stress causing damage to the nerve systems. Other physical disorders all have connections to negative emotional experiences. As long as these negative emotions are present the physical systems are being restricted from their normal function. In the absence of these negative emotions the physical systems can be improved or corrected.

The process for the recovery of the offended systems is to first identify the origin of the physical damage and then to identify the connecting emotion. The next step is to determine the origin of the connecting emotion. When the origin of the emotion is determined the individual is directed to re-live the experience. But this time, recognize that there was an instant of choice in relating to the experience by either a positive, negative, or indifferent response. Then choose to reconstruct the experience with a positive emotion. When the original negative emotional imprint is changed all of the following experiences that connect to the original negative emotion have to re-evaluated and reconstructed. This is done by using the imagination to create a different reality to the experience at the sub-conscious level of the experience.

Regression therapy can unfold mysteries hidden deep within our childhoods and can also help past life memories surface for anyone interested in the possibility of reincarnation.

Past Life Regression and Past Life Therapy

Past Life Regression (PLR), and Past Life Therapy (PLT), are alternative, holistic forms of psychotherapy based upon the premise that we are eternal beings who carry forward learning and experiences from one human lifetime to another.

Past life regression (PLR) is a process of retrieving supposed memories of alleged previous lives. This is frequently done using a process of hypnosis or deep meditation. It is often suggested by therapists for personal growth and healing of people with psychological or physical problems. By reliving or discovering previous experiences or traumas, a person can identify the origin of his/her problem whether it is a phobia or a disability or other. One of PLR's leading advocates is Brian L. Weiss M.D.

Past life regression advocates believe in reincarnation and that the experiences from previous lives can carry over and affect a person's current life. Skeptics claim that it is highly probable that these memories are false and that they are purely the result of imagination or confabulation. PLR advocates typically believe in reincarnation, however, a belief in reincarnation is not required for the techniques to be effective. Whether the memories are true or imagined dreams, past life regression techniques can be helpful in providing insight to the subconscious mind and providing valuable information.

Past Life Therapy (PLT) differs from PLR in that it is not generally used just for past life exploration and knowledge seekers. Past Life Therapy is performed with a specific therapeutic target(s) as the result. This method does not require formal induction or hypnosis, in fact, it typically uses so-called "de-hypnosis" techniques or "focused-state" to access unresolved past experiences. Past Life Therapy helps resolve past life survival scripts (patterns), that may be effecting one's state of mind, behaviors, and mental and physical health in this (or even future) lifetime. Among the pioneers in this field are Morris Netherton and Karl Schlotterbeck.

The premise of De-Hypnosis according to Morris Netherton is, “Regression therapists don’t bring people into trance, they get them out of trance."

Many clients are stuck in a pattern of Negative Self-Hypnosis (NSH), which is simply brainwashing that the clients have done or are doing to themselves through the repeated process of negative thought patterns, phrases, and actions. PLT can be used to reduce or eliminate the triggers that put clients into a spontaneous trance state. It can also be used to replace the NSH with positive thoughts and actions, and adjust memories and associated emotional states.

Of course, not all problems and issues are rooted in experiences from prior lifetimes. It is important to distinguish when we have a current life issue that needs to be addressed through other means. Some of the more significant areas in which regression and past life therapy has traditionally been used are:

    • Troubling behavior and attitude patterns that have persisted over time, despite attempts to change
    • Relationship dynamics that seem to have a life of their own (intense attraction/aversion to another person, deep-seated issues that defy resolution)
    • Some chronic physical ailments, sensations and pains
    • Dominant attitudes or emotions that seem to persist throughout your life
    • Insecurity and Fear of Abandonment
    • Depression and low energy
    • Phobias and irrational fears
    • Guilt and Martyr complexes
    • Material insecurity and eating disorders
    • Family or Marital struggles
  • How long does Past Life Therapy take, or how many sessions are necessary?

Like any other therapy, this varies widely upon the person and the issues they are looking to resolve.  Sometimes a client only has to work a single key issue or root cause and other similar issues fall into place for them after just a few sessions; the same way a row of dominoes fall one after another when the first is pushed. Since Past Life Therapy is based on finding and resolving repeating patterns in our life, this is often the case. Some clients will have more than one pattern they wish to resolve and decide to attend additional sessions. These can be structured weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or as half/full-day intensives. A recommended plan and time estimate will be discussed during your first interview.
