There’s a part of you that needs and seeks security, love and contentment, and a part of you that already is all of those characteristics. How do we access this aspect of ourselves that lacks nothing and views the world from a viewpoint of love and wisdom? Hint: it’s the timeless soul part of you that is animating your body as you read this…the part of you that you can never shake yourself loose from because you are it. For most of us, this may only be an intellectual concept that we may or may not believe, but how do we actually experience and deeply feel this aspect of ourselves? To tune into the pure energy part of us that survives beyond this space/time dimension, we have to apply our moment-to-moment focus and attention inwards. When we do this, we leave this realm of time, space and form behind (not our body, but our awareness) and start to gradually tune into the soul aspect of ourselves. The outcomes of this are a deep sense of peace, and also information comes to us in more of a “telepathic” way that feels like a combined download of snapshot images and intuitive “inner knowings”. As we continue to focus inward, the deep contentment and stillness expands, we experience a “knowing” that this is our truest nature, and thus we begin to identify with it far more than the incessant, often negative mind chatter that is part of our human experience. From this vantage point, we can become aware of any subconscious belief that limits us in our life, and we can experience what it would feel like to let it go.
What I’ve described is probably the biggest value of doing a past life regression, yet it isn’t what most people think of when they hear “past life regression”. The real value of it is that you get an experiential glimpse of a “truer” part of you that actually feels more awake, aware and wise than the conscious part of you. When you begin to live life from this aspect of yourself, you are “in the world, but not of the world,” and it is a freer way to live. Once you’ve experienced how to go within, it is possible to focus your mind and connect to this higher aspect of yourself on your own, with practice. And over time, the need to use self-hypnosis to “re-plug” into your soul aspect of self is no longer necessary and can be done anytime. It becomes a matter of which dimension of yourself you chose to identify with and interact in the world from.
