Reincarnation is the doctrine that says that we evolve spiritually by living a number of lifetimes that is necessary for achieving perfection. The soul never dies and is immortal though our physical body dies. The soul has experienced many lifetimes.
When we are born our soul brings with it all the knowledge, wisdom, and karma of previous lifetimes. The qualities that we express are a result of the long lineage of previous lifetimes. The memories of previous lifetimes are stored at the soul level and can’t be recalled at the conscious level. The easiest way to discover and experience a past life is to undergo a Past life regression session.
Past Life Regression is a therapy that uses alpha state of consciousness to recover memories of past lives or re-incarnations. It is mentioned in Upanishads and discussed in details in Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
According to Lord Sri Krishna, the soul is burdened with an accumulation of impressions that are a part of karma of previous lives. Later an ardent disciple of Sri Krishna better known as Patanjali Maharishi called the process of Past life regression as Prati-Prasav which means “Reverse birthing”. It involves dealing with current life challenges and problems through exploring memories of our past lives and lifetimes.
Although Past life regression dates back to 4th Century BC when Patanjali instructed how past lives can be recalled through meditation, it made a comeback in modern times around 20th century with Albert de Rochas, a French colonel who practiced hypnotism. He is considered to be the father of Hypnotic regressions. He used magnetism to induce hypnotism. Dick Sutphen, an American past life regression therapist popularized its use in 60’s. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life and Coming Back gave details of near-death experiences. French educator Allan Kardec also delved into past life regression in the book Heaven and Hell.
Brian L. Weiss, a prominent psychiatrist, author of bestselling book Many Lives, Many Masters and Through Time into Healing states that a phobia or illness is not the result of a single lifetime but accumulated traumas of many lifetimes. In such cases, the hypnotherapist can direct the patient to pick up key incidents from a cluster of lifetimes. Past life regression flows from key to key moment and is a very practical, successful therapy modality.
