What is Past Life Regression (PLR)?
For many people, the idea of immortality, past lives, and reincarnation is hard to comprehend. Looking back through history the concept of immortality seems to come from Indian origins, especially Hinduism.
Reincarnation, also known as rebirth, transmigration, or metempsychosis (Greek) it is the belief that after death the soul separates from the body and returns to the Ethers where it takes another body to continue with another mortal life. It is thought that the soul goes through many cycles of death and new incarnations.
The Law of Karma
Reincarnation is thought to be linked to Karma. Which says each soul pays for their good or bad behavior in their next reincarnation. Therefore, a soul with good karma reincarnates into a higher being, and a soul with bad karma will transmigrate into an inferior being. With this in-mind each successive incarnation moves the soul towards perfection - a pure spirit immersed forever in eternity.
A Brief History
The belief in reincarnation began in India in the seventh century BC. It was Patanjali, a Hindu scholar, w that studied and wrote about how the soul is always burdened by its karma and introduced prati-prasav or reverse birthing, known today as past life regression (PLR). This is a technique where the person revisits memories to address present issues.
Prati-prasav is to again be born in a memory, it means to go back to where the memory originates from – it is not just remembering that is different it is the act of reliving. Remember, you do not remember it, you relive it again. This is an incredibly significant process. It is the process of involution. So, if you have a problem, trauma, issue, or something troubling you, you go back to the original source where it began, typically you can keep trying to solve the problem, but unless you go back to the roots, you will not solve it.
In Hinduism, all life goes through birth, life, death, and rebirth, this is known as the cycle of samsara. According to this belief, all living things have an atman, which is a piece of Brahman, or a spirit or soul, which moves into a new body (living things such as a plant, animal or human) after death.
PLR became popular in the 1950’s when Madame Blavatsky; the co-founder of the Theosophical Society introduced her studies to the west. The practice of PLR was developed further in the 1950's when credible medical practitioners began using PLR as a tool to improve mental health, leading to Dr. Denys Kelsey in 1967 being the first to use regression as a therapy.
Using Past Life Regression
It is thought that some unresolved conflicts, ghosts of the past, and nightmares are in some cases a result of a past life.
Your past affects your future, and is an underlying principle believed to be true by the ancient religious tradition called Hinduism. In Hinduism it is thought that reincarnation is to be born - re-incarnated into the body of a new person which will contain parts of our present state. So, in effect, this new person is a product of their past whether physically, psychologically, cognitively, or socially. This belief in reincarnation has spread across the world.
Some behavioral scientists spearheaded by Sigmund Freud believed in the concept of the unconscious and the subconscious. Freud theorized that the human mind is primarily used by its unconscious and subconscious aspects rather than its conscious part. Freud believed that our unconscious holds the memories, past events, motives, or troubles that we are trying to repress perhaps because of their painful, traumatic nature.
These memories, thoughts and past events in our unconscious are not easily accessible to us because we tend to repress them, because they are painful. However, Freud believed that no matter how hard we try forgetting or repressing these memories stored in our unconscious, they will continue to influence the way we think, act, and behave. He believed that they are the origins of our motivations and desires and will eventually find a way to impact our present life.
For many people being haunted by the ghosts of their past in their present-day incarnation can be quite troubling. This may take the form of recurring thoughts or dreams of their unresolved and repressed fears, phobias, and traumas. Some people may not even realize where their fears are coming from.
Techniques to Solve This Psychological Problem
Psychologists, especially Psychotherapists use certain methods to combat this problem. One such tool/method is the use of PLR –Past Life Regression. This is a bit like tapping into your past to find and solve the problems you are experiencing in your present life, which will therefore make your future more problem-free.
Desire to Change
Pat Life Regressions using hypnosis, meditation, or other techniques will provide access to theoretical lifetimes. Past life regression can help you recognize that you have a problem, and that by using PLR you can help yourself to resolve this problem/issue.
That said, past life regression is only effective if the person can recognize that they have unresolved conflicts and is willing to use PLR to solve their problems. Past life regression is only a tool. The person's desire to change and solve the problem is key. A person's past influences but does not dictate the present or even the future.
