Part Three in a Series
Those of you who have read my spiritual memoir, Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation and Me, know that my health and world view changed dramatically after a Reiki therapist revealed a past life bond casting a long shadow across my present life.
Though I wasn’t seeking past life therapy, it found me in a round about way, and it made all the difference. Emerging avenues of past life therapy are now available through the pioneering work of Dr. Brian Weiss (Many Masters, Many Lives), Dr. Michael Newton (Destiny of Souls), Dolores Cannon (QHHT), Dr. Jim Tucker (Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives) and the practitioners who have followed in their footsteps. In a more esoteric realm, channeled messages through Lee Carroll by the collective entities known as Kryon often teach about the past lives and the Akashic Records. Kryon encourages listeners to “mine their Akash” to discover a wealth of talents and knowledge acquired through the centuries of multiple life experiences.
I’ve not only become a Reiki practitioner myself, but also seek information from my own Akashic history. In my book, Supernal Adventures, a chapter is devoted to past life therapy and some of my experiences, including the one previously posted here as A Personal Past Life Regression.
Meditation, healing prayer, and distance healing are all part of my daily routine, but Akashic Record exploration, I reserve for Sunday mornings. It’s time for me and my spiritual guide “team” to spend extra moments delving into current situations and age old questions like, why am I here? Using the method taught by Ernest Ortiz (see post Unravel Mysteries with Akashic Records Reading), I’ve had hit-and-miss success connecting with past life images. More often I’ve received advice and guidance and, occasionally, poetry. Going back and reading the messages is startling, because I barely remember what I’ve written.
Recently, I browsed YouTube and found guided past life meditations there. Last Sunday I plugged in my ear phones, got comfortable on the couch, and hit play for a 45 minute trip to another life. I set an intention ~ please show me a connection to the healing and care giving interest I have today. The audio was uploaded by Blue Sky Hypnosis.com and facilitated by Peter McLaughlin, CHT. Mr. McLaughlin is very professional and smoothly takes the listener “deeper and deeper.” By the time I had mentally walked down the stairs, through the meadow, over a footbridge and into a marble building, I was extremely focused. The listener is ultimately led to a hallway with many doors, each the entrance to a different life. Pick a door. Is the door wooden? Metal? Old? New? Today’s door looked like a hospital hall door, metal with a small window. I pushed through.
The first instructions are to “look down at your feet.” (Interestingly, my previous spontaneous past life memories began seeing my feet and hands and thinking those aren’t mine.) In this session, I saw stiff Oxford shoes and legs covered in woolen stockings walking down a polished hardwood floor. The facilitator asks detailed questions to bring the picture into focus. My identity emerged as a nurse in a private home in England in 1908. I was the care giver for a frail, but lively spirited elderly woman. The house was not large, but furnished well, with many oil paintings on the walls. The woman and I shared poignant days that we knew would be her last. It was a cocoon of time.
The facilitator’s questions jumped my mind to other situations:
Go to an evening meal. Where are you? Who is with you? In this case I was sitting alone in my room eating soup with a piece of hearty bread.
Go to the happiest moment of that life. What is happening? I caught a brief glimpse of being a child at a happy family outside gathering. Everyone was seated around a big table, having a merry time.
Go to the most significant event of this lifetime. What’s happening? What do you see? I was on a cold, grey beach. Other people were scattered up the shore. We were all fully dressed. Debris and bodies were washing up on the shore from a passenger ship that had sunk during a rough storm. I stood there wondering what exactly I should do, feeling helpless and overwhelmed by the horrifying loss of life.
What did I take away from that life time? My innate healing talents today were nurtured in that life experience as a nurse. My distrust of doctors also grew as I observed questionable treatments and arrogant attitudes. I learned to follow my healing instincts and developed a common sense approach to wellness. My ability to calmly sit with the ill and dying has a foundation in that experience.
While the YouTube experience is enlightening, it doesn’t take the place of a full therapy session with a qualified therapist. That may take several hours to explore the nuances of visited lifetimes and discover the roots of issues affecting the present lifetime. Still, for the curiosity seeker, it can be an introduction to discovering a wealth of self-discovery just waiting to be explored.
The Supernal Adventure continues!
