Case 4: Healing a Frozen Shoulder
A retired medical doctor (I’ll call him Jim) came in one day with a frozen left shoulder. He could not lift it very high at all. It had been bothering him for many years, and he had been to the Mayo Clinic several times and had tried a lot of alternative healing techniques for it, but nothing helped very much. He decided to try past life regression.
Jim regressed back to a life as a large, stout Roman soldier who had a strong sense of duty to his country. He was very good at what he did, and that was killing people and putting down peasant uprisings. He described carrying a big shield with his right hand, and with his left hand he carried a large, sharp sword and was a killing machine with his left arm. After his death in that life, his soul moved up into the high vibration of the spiritual dimension. It was then that Jim became emotional with tears of guilt, as he suddenly became aware of all of the fatherless homes he had created. He said, “We didn’t always have to fight, we could have settled conflicts verbally. I’m having trouble forgiving myself.” Then it dawned on him that that guilt might have something to do with his frozen shoulder. I suggested that while he was connected to his higher soul self, he should call upon all of the souls that he killed or negatively affected in that past life. He sensed many souls come around and he gave a heart and soul-felt apology. The answer that came back was that all was forgiven…he was simply acting as most humans do while lost in the human experience. He then experienced a flood of light and what felt like healing energy come into his energy system. Insights about his soul lesson began to drop in, and he said, “I needed to listen to my heart more, there’s a price to pay for blindly following the duty for country if the leaders are not necessarily on the right path.”
After the session, Jim had a big smile on his face as he effortlessly raised up his left arm and shoulder. I saw him again at a talk by Dr. Larry Dossey three years later. Jim walked up to me and raised his left arm and shoulder saying, “You know Eric, that session we did was the only thing that ever really worked for this shoulder.”
As we go within, our higher guidance system will show us a life that is having a strong impact on the present life, especially if we ask for it. At a deep level, there was something that needed resolution…and that something was affecting the physical, mental and emotional energy bodies of Jim’s present life. Once we got that resolution, the healing could happen at a very deep level. Quantum science tells us that we are energy beings. We are also multi-dimensional, and part of us lies outside of this time/space continuum. Unresolved thoughts, feelings and perspectives from a past life can affect a person’s present life. As one tunes into their eternal soul mind for solutions, their innate wisdom will very often show them the source of a particular problem or issue. Interesting to note that Jim became a doctor in this life to help people heal and live a better life, perhaps to make up for the life in which he took life away from people.
