Imagine if there really was no such thing as time, everything was and is happening at this precise moment in some form and you could go anywhere, where would you go? If I could take you somewhere, back in the past or into the future, where would it be? A past life maybe, somewhere to perhaps remember the lessons of that life or into the future to see where you might end up in say five or ten years or even into a future life. Wouldn’t it be interesting, maybe we would recognise each other in another form or those we know today?
I went for regression therapy myself after my mother died, I couldn’t come to terms with her death and was in a state of grief. It had always been something mum wanted to do herself, on her bucket list so to speak so I thought I’d give it a go myself. I was taken back in this life, taken just a short while back and then further to the point of my mothers death. This might sound morbid but it was something I couldn’t allow into my thoughts, I was I suppose in a state of denial. Seeing it again, or rather viewing it from another point of existence sort of made it real for me, I cried buckets as you can imagine but I accepted her death. I went back further to a teenager, oh how I felt sorry for that poor girl, know all know nothing I think the term is, I loved her anyway, I think she needed that. I went back to being a toddler, felt the enormous love of my mother and to a baby in the womb listening to my dad sing. This might seem far fetched to those that won’t allow their minds to travel this way but to me it was cathartic and healing. Even if my body was just lying on that couch, my mind was able to expand, travel and heal.
I travelled back through other lifetimes, some of no interest, I looked on detached from what I saw. One woman, who I believed I was, I had no time for, she was bitter and twisted and had wasted her life. I experienced her as an old woman and felt there was not much else for her to do with that life but die and try again in another life. I found myself as a doctor in one life, looking at my shoes I was amazed to find myself as a man, he is my favourite so far, he kept a journal of his findings and died with the journal open next to him on the bed. Would you believe I found him the next day on the internet, he looked exactly the same and when I read about him it was the same as I had learnt during the session, mind blowing!
So what can we get from past lives, I think lots of lessons. As much as I loved the doctor, loved the fact he wrote and was passionate about his lives work, I also understood his loneliness, he had sacrificed family, never marrying or having children being married to his work. I learnt from him about balance, to be committed to your work might be wonderful but make room for love. In this life as much as my career has been important, never more than my love for my family and friends, they will always come out on top.
Recently I’ve been into the future, or the best possible future to how I’m living today. I’ve been forward five and ten years and it’s fascinating. I can see potential and possibility, it has given me, above all, hope. I’ve trained as a Past Life Regression and Future Life Progression (FLP) practitioner now, another tool for my box of tricks and I’m having fun experimenting with my new found skills. If I can help people see possibilities then that has to be good.
I think both the past and future can help us make sense of the present, I think we can understand the lessons in this life that sometimes seem pointless or cruel. I can see why some people appear to have it all and others nothing at all but do believe in balance as in some way or another, life or lives will even out.
This post is not in any way meant to offend, I’m not pushing any beliefs on anyone as I believe being present in the moment every bit as important, I’m just curious and for me I’ve found these therapies helpful in making sense of now. So if you could go anywhere in time, where would it be?
