A past life is another lifetime that our inner spirit has lived through. In our reincarnational journey we take on all kinds of different personalities in many different times and places, explains past life therapist and author Atasha Fyfe.
Our real self is our inner spirit. This moves from one lifetime to another, choosing the lives that will best suit our personal path. The long-term purpose of this is to gain in spiritual growth, joy and love. It helps to think of our earth lives as a sort of school.
Each term is a different lifetime. After each life, we go home for the holidays. The length of time we spend there can differ greatly, depending on the individual. Over many lifetimes, people slowly rise up through this school until they’re ready to graduate to lives in higher dimensional worlds. Even then, for various different reasons, people may still sometimes pop back for another earth life.
Hypnotherapy vs. past life regression
Like past life regression, hypnotherapy begins with relaxing people. This is because when we’re in a medium-to-deep relaxed state we’re more open to suggestion. For hypnotherapy, this is the most effective way to make positive life-changing recommendations to the subconscious.
Past life regression also begins with putting people into a relaxed state – but in this case, the purpose is to allow past life memories to surface. While hypnotherapy tries to influence the subconscious, past life regression lets the inner psyche show the way, and then works with it.
Past life readings vs. regression
A reading is when a psychic sees your past lives for you. In a regression, you access your memories directly for yourself. Both are valuable in their different ways. People often come for a regression to find out about a past life that a clairvoyant once told them about.
The tapestry of our lives
Past life clues weave like colourful ribbons through the tapestry of our lives. When you know how to spot them, these clues tell you a lot about your former lifetimes. You may also have sudden realisations about your past lives. They may seem to come from nowhere, but they come up because it’s the right time for you to know about them.
You can think of past lives as other aspects of your greater self – or as yourself living in parallel timelines.
