PAST LIFE THERAPY WITH HYPNOSIS
“All the past is here, present to be tried”
Henry David Thoreau, Journal
In 1988, a conventionally trained psychiatrist, Dr. Brian Weiss, wrote a New York Times best-selling book, “Many Lives, Many Masters.” In it he details his work with a patient he calls Catherine, who, under hypnosis, remembered multiple past lives, relieving her of paralyzing phobias. It sold over a million copies and drew the heavy criticism of the medical establishment. Undaunted by the criticism, he persisted in his exploration and work so that today many people, scientists and laypersons alike, are convinced that there may be something very important in past lives work.
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, a past life approach with a trained mental health professional has clinical value. As an existential humanistic psychologist with over 30 years of experience using hypnosis, I have found this approach very helpful for many of my patients. It facilitates change, healing and progress. Anyone who discounts an approach such as Past Life Therapy such as “unscientific” is doing a disservice to all.
I have found this approach to be effective in many cases: patients report that they have gained insight, understand better, resolved a conflict, found meaning and resolved such emotional challenges as phobias, guilt, letting go of grief and in some instances healing physical symptoms and illnesses.
I agree with psychologist, “Repressed memories (real or not) may have enormous symbolic or metaphorical value in addition to empower psychotherapy to improve the life a person.”
