Natalie Bruckner gives an interesting account of her experience with hypnosis for recreational past life regression in . . . Journalist is Regressed to Her Past Lives . . . while hypnosis regression to traumatic events in this life can have very therapeutic effect . . . when done correctly (so be sure to consult a qualified and competent hypnotist and not just any wand-waver you come across) . . . belief in pastlives is neither validated nor disproven via hypnosis.
While I am particularly skeptical of folks who do so-called pastlife therapy who go looking for such things to solve the problems of this life (I have found that most of the problems of this life are rooted in issues from this life) . . . it can be an interesting recreational exploration. I have regressed folks to so-called paslives and they have often found the experience to be rewarding or at least unique. I do not conduct so-called paslife therapy, for therapy, I use more reliable and valid approaches. However, I personally do have a belief in pastlives . . . but know enough about hypnosis to understand that a regression session neither confirms nor denies the existence of such lives . . . there are too many open variables such as leading versus guiding, phanstasy or confabulation, or previous information to contend with.
However, if such an experience is of interest to you . . . feel free to contact me for more information. I am happy to oblige folks . . . as long as they understand the caveats and approach the experience in an open-minded and playful manner.
