All who live possess eternal life, and few would trade it for an immortal body, if they truly understood what it is to be alive.
Audrey Auden
All human beings go through a previous life. Who knows how many fleshly forms the heir of heaven occupies before he can be brought to understand the value of that silence and solitude whose starry plains are but the vestibule of spiritual worlds?
-Honore Balzac
The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body. -Giordano Bruno
It is a strong proof of men knowing most things before birth, that when mere children they grasp innumerable facts with such speed as to show that they are not then taking them in for the first time, but are remembering and recalling them. -Marcus Tullius Cicero
Reincarnation is, indeed, the key which unlocks all doors, the universal combination, before which our manacles fall from our limbs - the life-line by which the crooked way is made straight.
-Shaw Desmond
The object of our sojourns on earth, as apart from the gaining of experience, is but one. The loosing of ourselves from the coil of reincarnation, which, over and over again, brings us back to earth as on a coiled spring, until, having learned the last lesson of matter, leaped the last barrier, we are freed forever from earth.
-Shaw Desmond
We all have some experience of a feeling, that comes over us occasionally, of what we are saying and doing having been said and done before, in a remote time - of our having been surrounded, dim ages ago, by the same faces, objects, and circumstances.
-Charles Dickens
As a man, casting off worn out garments taketh new ones, so the dweller in the body, entereth into ones that are new.
Let us face it: deep down nobody in his right mind can visualize his own existence without assuming that he has always lived and will live hereafter.
-Erik Erikson
I believe we are reincarnated. You, I, we reincarnate over and over. We live many lives, and store up much experience. Some are older souls than others and so they know more. It seems to be an intuitive gift. It is really hard-won experience. -Henry Ford
I believe that the soul of man is immortal and will be treated with justice in another life, respecting its conduct in this. I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning. Finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other always exist. -Benjamin Franklin
When the physical organism breaks up, the soul survives. It then takes on another body.
-Paul Gauguin
A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me. ―Khalil Gibran
Reincarnation is essential to enable the soul to evolve to its Divine right. -R.F. Goudey
The extent of the logical evidence for reincarnation is amazing. It is found to explain justly many of the problems of daily life. It reasonably accounts for such psychological problems as sudden friendships, awakening memories of past associations, certain strange actions of children, the nature of genius, obsession, and dual personality. By this doctrine the world becomes a huge training school, guided by law, and ruled by Divine Justice, instead of being a bewildering maze of chaotic and chance accidents.
-R.F. Goudey
I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times.
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
All pure and holy spirits live on in heavenly places, and in course of time they are again sent down to inhabit righteous bodies. —Josephus
Souls are poured from one into another of different kinds of bodies of the world.
Jesus Christ in Gnostic Gospels
I could well imagine that I might have lived in former centuries and there encountered questions I was not yet able to answer; that I had been born again because I had not fulfilled the task given to me.
Carl Jung
God generates beings, and sends them back over and over again, till they return to Him.
I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums… All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me… Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born.
-Jack London
I hold that when a person dies his soul returns again to earth; arrayed in some new flesh disguise. Another mother gives him birth with sturdier limbs and brighter brain.
-John Masefield
And only the enlightened can recall their former lives; for the rest of us, the memories of past existences are but glints of light, twinges of longing, passing shadows, disturbingly familiar, that are gone before they can be grasped, like the passage of that silver bird on Dhaulagiri.
Peter Matthiessen
If the evils we suffer are the result of sins committed in our past lives, we can bear them with resignation and hope that if in this one we strive toward virtue our future lives will be less afflicted. -W Somerset Maugham
Reincarnation involves a free choice of action constantly, and constantly an opportunity for re-making one's self and one's surroundings. -Eustace Miles
Live so that thou mayest desire to live again. That is thy duty for in any case thou wilt live again! —Freidrich Nietzsche
For the first 40 days a child is given dreams of previous lives, journeys, winding paths, a hundred small lessons and then the past is erased. ―Michael Ondaatje
It is beyond a doubt bodies are only of secondary importance and arise from time to time to meet the varying conditions of reasonable creatures. Those who require bodies are clothed with them, and contrariwise, when fallen souls have lifted themselves up to better things their bodies are once more annihilated. They are ever vanishing and ever reappearing. —Origen
So as through a glass and darkly, the age long strife I see, where I fought in many guises, many names, but always me. —George S. Patton
There is one and the same soul in many bodies. –Plotinus
I feel as though I have lived many lives, experienced the heights and depths of each and like the waves of the ocean, never known rest. Throughout the years, I looked always for the unusual, for the wonderful, for the mysteries at the heart of life.
Leni Riefenstahl
It's so silly. All you do is get the heck out of your body when you die. My gosh, everybody's done it thousands of times. Just because they don't remember, it doesn't mean they haven't done it.
-J D Salinger
There is no death. The soul never dies and the body is never really alive. -Isaac Bashevis Singer
I am confident that there truly is such a thing as living again, that the living spring from the dead, and that the souls of the dead are in existence. -Socrates
As far back as I can remember I have unconsciously referred to the experiences of a previous state of existence. Why should we be startled by death? Life is a constant putting off of the mortal coil - coat, cuticle, flesh and bones, all old clothes.
-Henry David Thoreau
As we live through thousands of dreams in our present life, so is our present life only one of many thousands of such lives which we enter from the other more real life and then return after death. Our life is but one of the dreams of that more real life, and so it is endlessly, until the very last one, the very real the life of God. —Leo Tolstoy
What if when we die the light at the end of the tunnel we see is just us being pushed out of another vagina?
It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection.
I know I am deathless…We have thus far exhausted trillions of winters and summers, there are trillions ahead, and trillions ahead of them. No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before. I laugh at what you call dissolution, and I know the amplitude of time.
-Walt Whitman
We would know what we were a little before conception, what we shall be a little after burial. –W.B. Yeats
The souls must reenter the absolute substance whence they have emerged. But to accomplish this, they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God.
–The Zohar
I've just finished 2 intensive weeks rewriting of my website. It has a completely new design and I added sections on Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression, and Two Spirit Transgenderism. My site is packed with information on these subjects as well as Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine.
There is a hidden cookie somewhere on my site with a special code on it. If you find the code and send it to me I will give you a free session of your choice. Do you want a hypnotherapy session? past life regression? shamanic work? energy work?
Below is an article about past life regression. I hope you enjoy!
Reincarnation & Past Life Regression
Disclaimer: The intention of this article is to be thought provoking and not scientific. Therefore, I do not try to prove that the reincarnation exists. I assume that it does exist. I write from personal experience in both hypnotherapy past life regression and metaphysics.  
"The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why." –Mark Twain
What is Reincarnation?
The most common concept of reincarnation is of a soul living successive lives on earth, usually including a passage through the spiritual world or inner planes between death and rebirth. There is a point in this cycle when a soul achieves enlightenment or self-realization and re-merges with Great Spirit/Creator/God/Goddess, which ends the reincarnation cycle.
The bottom line is that during the process of reincarnation, some essential part of a living being survives death to be reborn in a new body. This essential part is often referred to as the Spirit, the Soul, the Higher Self, the True Self, or the Divine Spark.
Perhaps the earliest reference to reincarnation occurred around 1300 BCE in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Today about 75% of the world’s population believes in reincarnation.
The following religious faiths and cultures have a belief in reincarnation: Baha’i, Confucianism, Druids, Druze, Gnostic, Hinduism, Jainism, Native Americans, New Agists, Paganism, Scientology, Rastafari, Shamanism, Shinto, Sikhism, Spiritism, Sufi, Taoism, Theosophy, Wicca, and Yoruba.
Judaism does, too, but only in the Kabbalah and orthodox sects. Buddhism doe as well, but the concept is different as there is no belief in the eternal soul. Spiritulism and Unitarian Universalism is divided with some believing in reincarnation and some not. The Christian faith believed in reincarnation until Constantinople struck all references to it from the Bible and Christian literature.
The following religions faiths do not have a belief in reincarnation: Islam and Zoroastrianism.
What is the Cycle of Life Based on the Reincarnation Cosmology?
I created the following diagram to portray graphically how the cycle of life occurs within the reincarnation cosmology. The life of a soul originates in the 5D world. A contract is created during a pre-birth life selection process. Then as the soul moves through the birth canal, amnesia occurs, which erases or hides from consciousness the memories of the life between lives and all past lives. During the incarnation on Earth, lessons are learned with free will allowing free choices along the journey. After death, a soul has a post life review, not to be judged but to take note of what was or was not accomplished. The results of the review will determine the lessons to be set up for the next incarnation. The soul will reside in the 5D world until ready for the next incarnation. (Note: some souls become caught on the 4D plane after death but these souls are beyond the scope of this article.)
What are the Different Dimensional Planes of Existence?
  1. Third-dimensional (3D) is everyday life that exists on the physical plane of Earth. The energy on this plane is dense and has a low vibration rate making items visual and tangible.
  2. Fourth-dimension (4D) is the astral plane just beyond our physical existence. Recently departed souls often pause here before traveling forward into the spiritual realm because they can send an energetic communication to loved ones. The 4D world is a place of telepathy, out-of-body experiences, and mysticism. It is also the place where disincarnated spirits known as ghosts reside, ghosts being the spirits that have not yet “gone to the Light”. Ego remains in the 4D world and therefore it is not the ultimate spiritual destination.
  3. Fifth-dimension (5D) is the realm of pure energy, pure soul, and pure love. Our Higher Self, spiritual guides and teachers reside here. This is the place of life between lives. We leave the 5th dimension to incarnate into a body on earth.
What are the Different Levels of Brain-wave Activity?
There are 4 levels of brain-wave activity.
  1. Beta (14 to 27 cycles per second) is normal waking consciousness, the one most used in 3D living.
  2. Alpha (8 to 13 cycles per second) is resting state of the brain, which occurs while listening to music, during light hypnosis, meditation, and daydreaming.
  3. Theta (4 to 8 cycles per second) is the reverie state of consciousness where one is unaware of physical surroundings and occurs during light sleep, deeper states of hypnosis, and meditation. This state opens the door to intuition and inspiration.
  4. Delta (0.5 to 4 cycles per second) is a state in which the individual is unresponsive to any stimuli and occurs during deep sleep.
When in the alpha state we can access the 4th dimension and when in the theta state we can access the 5th dimension. Alpha and theta states can be activated through chanting, dancing, praying, repetitive percussion sound, and hypnosis.
A person generally accesses specifics of past lives in the upper alpha state. Life between lives soul regression requires a deep alpha and upper theta state. To reach this deeper level of trance, the hypnotic induction is lengthier.
What is the Higher Self?
The soul is holographic energy consisting of waves of light and color. When we are born, a portion of our soul energy steps into the physical body, while the mirror-image complement remains in spirit form on the 5th dimensional plane. The 5th dimension portion is called the Higher Self. Other terms for the Higher Self are Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, Universal Consciousness, and Superconsciousness.
When we die, our soul is released from the confines of physical body, increasing in vibration in order to reunite with its holographic counterpart in spirit.
Experiencing a life between lives regression allows us to unite for a short while with our Higher Self. This experience can transform our emotional, physical, and spiritual health toward greater wisdom.
What are the Akashic Records?
The deep subconscious mind retains the memories of every thought, feeling, motive, desire, behavior, and full sensory recall of every physical experience from every incarnation and from the non-physical experiences since the creation of the Soul. This total memory is also stored in the Akashic record, which is the register of everything which has ever occurred. The Akashic records are stored in ether on the 5th dimension plane.
The Akashic records is a universal filing system which records every thought, word, and action. Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning sky, space or aether. The Akashic records have been referred to as the Cosmic Mind, the Universal Mind, the collective unconscious, or the collective subconscious. The Akashic records can be accessed through meditation, astral journeying, dream work, or hypnosis.
The collective subconscious gathers all thoughts from each subconscious mind which can be read by other subconscious minds. The most famous reader of the Akashic records is Edgar Cayce. He would read them while in a deep sleep-like trance.
What is Karma?
Karma is a Sanscrit word meaning action, effect, destiny. It is equated to the Law of Cause and Effect. Karma is a sum of all that an individual has done, is currently doing, and will do. The effects of all deeds create present and future experiences. Thus one has responsibility for one's own lives, including past, present, and future.
What is Hypnosis?
Three levels of consciousness that exist in the mind are:
  1. The Conscious - the part of the mind associated with everyday awakened consciousness. It does the thinking, analyzing, imagining, and learning, makes decisions, and expresses what is to be impressed on the subconscious mind. It is used about 5% of the time.
  2. The Subconscious – the part of the mind that is hidden or unconscious from our awareness. It makes no decisions of right or wrong and accepts what has been impressed on it and creates from there. The subconscious stores emotional complexes, long-term memory, instinct, habits, behavior patterns, belief systems, and controls physiological body functions. It is used about 95% of the time.
  3. The Superconscious – this part of mind that belongs to the Higher Self or the Collective Conscious. It is responsible for higher potential, creativity, intuition, quantum reality and spiritual awareness. The superconsciousness is the God or Source energy and is rooted in the Akashic records. It is also called the higher consciousness, super consciousness, objective consciousness, Buddhic consciousness, cosmic consciousness, God-consciousness, Christ consciousness and Super-Human. It is a very high frequency.
The memories stored in the subconscious can be accessed through hypnosis, which is a form of deep relaxation, where the mind can be focused on long-term memories. (For further information, read my article on Hynotherapy in my last newsletter. Links are at the bottom.)

What is Past Life Regression (PLR)?
A largest percentage of a soul’s memory is of past lives, which means that experiences from past lives can have a major impact on the current lifetime. Many of us have experienced at least 100 or more lifetimes before this incarnation. This influence remains hidden from consciousness unless past life recall is activated.
Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) is a therapeutic process accessing the unconscious mind and cellular memory in birth, past lives, and life between lives. This technique is effective in locating the original source of past trauma and transforming the core issues that affect daily life functioning and cause physical pain or illness.
The most effective way to access the unconscious mind is through hypnosis. A hypnotherapist trained in past life regression can be an excellent facilitator in helping a person journey to a past life or life between lives.
There are two intentional ways to explore a past life. The first is by getting a past life reading from another person, such as a psychic, who “reads” the past life experiences or “reads” your Akashic record. The second way is to be regressed hypnotically so that a past life is experienced directly.
I have experienced both methods and found that the second method, of being regressed to a past life, is much more powerful. Through actually experiencing a past life, which is so vivid under hypnosis that there is little doubt that it is not real, the experience provides a powerful kinesthetic and visual experience which often includes an emotional release. A past life regression therapist will help facilitate a transformation which can provide a healing for that lifetime and all subsequent lifetimes.
These past life experiences provide many “Aha!” moments. I remember saying to myself “Oh, now I know why I do that.” Or “Oh, now I know why I feel like that.”
A person may want to visit a past life for many different reasons such as:
  1. Curiosity of experiencing a past life.
  2. Exploring past life influences on current relationships.
  3. Discovering contracts or vows made in previous lifetimes that affect this lifetime. These contracts can be cancelled or renegotiated as desired.
  4. To discover overt acts of past lives that affect karmic lessons in this lifetime. These overt acts can be atoned for thus changing or fulfilling karmic lessons now.
  5. Discovering past talents and bringing them to the conscious mind of the present to increase creativity and/or peak performance.
  6. Discovering the pre-life contract and purpose for this lifetime.
  7. Discovering one’s overall soul purpose thereby gaining clarity about one’s intended path.
What is a Life between Lives Regression (LBL)?
In the spirit or ether space between lives, sometimes called the Light or the 5th dimension, there is a planning stage where the coming physical lifetime is planned. Beings who will be involved work together to develop situations which will allow for lessons to be learned. These lessons are based on past situations (karma) and are necessary for the development of the soul. As a soul is born, amnesia occurs to prevent memory of the agreements, the past lives, and the life between lives. This is intentional otherwise the learning situations would not be fully authentic.
At all times while incarnated a person has free will that can affect the direction of the pre-planned life. There are also various exit points during the lifetime that a person can opt out if s/he is not satisfied with how the current life is progressing.
At no time, including the post-life review, is there is judgment of right or wrong involved in these free will choices and life lessons. The outcomes affect only those who make the choices.
A life between lives experience is a visit to the 5D world. This experience is facilitated through a hypnotic state. There are many different places in 5D world to visit. They include the Hall of Wisdom (the place of life reviews), the Hall of Records (also known as the Akashic Records), the Hall of Justice (home of the Council of Elders), the Hall of Healing (a place of rejuvenation), and the home of your soul group. It is also possible to meet your personal spirit guide(s) and teacher(s).
Regression clients are usually older souls that have the ability to comprehend past-life and between-lives soul regression.
