Past Life Regression Therapy continues to grow in popularity across the world. It draws its fair share of sceptics and naysayers, and an often knee-jerk negativity from the conventional medical fraternity. My question is why? This therapy is wonderfully safe, drug free, self-driven and often brings about outstanding results for the people who choose to engage in the process.
Ethical facilitators will always attempt to engage treating medical practitioners when a client is under existing care, and ensure that the practitioner is advised that complementary therapies are being undertaken. However, many refuse to consider that complementary therapies are legitimate forms of treatment and as such, advise their patient against proceeding.
The PLR facilitator role is to act as a guide during the PLR experience. We do not claim to be ‘healers’ or to ‘cure’ medical conditions. Having said that, clients often report the cessation of a broad range of issues after attending for PLR sessions. These clients are often battling problems that the medical fraternity are either unable to diagnose, or unable to heal.
Nagging physical issues can really weigh a person down, diminishing their quality of life and holding them back from contributing as much as they would like. If we can accept that we are beings made up of mind, body and spirit connection then surely we can accept that each of these aspects can affect the other leading to dis-ease in any of them. PLR is about experiencing a dialogue with spirit, a dialogue that helps us to understand ourselves more completely and this includes our physical bodies.
I want to share an example of this with you. It comes from extensive research conducted by Dr Ian Stevenson MD (University of Virginia). Dr Stevenson conducted a study into birthmarks and defects, which appeared to be the result of wounds received in a past life. Stevenson noted in his work, Reincarnation and Biology: A contribution to the Etiology of Birthmarks and Birth Defects, that if someone died from a wound (eg stabbing or shooting) in a past life that a birthmark or scar could appear in the identical place in a subsequent lifetime. Stevenson proffered the concept of the trauma imprinting on the energy body and being reimaged onto a succeeding physical body in a later incarnation. When considering DNA imprinting, genetics etc., this does not seem to be an unreasonable hypothesis.
The retention of a language, not learned in the contemporary lifetime, is another unexplained occurrence, which sometimes occurs in PLR. Known as Xenoglossy, there are many documented cases where the client has begun to speak fluently in a ‘foreign’ tongue, sometimes taking on the entire personality of the pre cursor existence.
How far can we assist others with these types of therapies? As yet we don’t know, it is a work in progress, constantly being refined and studied. What I do know is that PLR Therapy gets results in a gentle, non-obtrusive way, drug free, and without risk. From my point of view, collaborative approaches to health care are favoured. Always seek professional advice and be informed.
