I recently had a client who booked me for a past life regression session. I am always happy to do these because I am fascinated by what the mind brings up. A lot of my clients are totally convinced that they lived one or more past lives. Strangely enough, it is in the middle of run of PLR requests. I find that I tend to get a bunch of PLR clients close together. Then it may be a few months with none, followed by another bunch. I have done many past lives but it never occurred to me that it could be used for palliative past life regression.
This client asked me to listen to an online radio broadcast that he thought I should hear in order to be able to do the type of Past life regression he wanted. The broadcast covered all the normal stuff. It all seemed fairly run-of-the-mill and not particularly noteworthy. However, the speaker is an MD, a qualified surgeon specialising in cancer. He said that he has had great success working with patients who are terminally ill. He works with those patients, hypnotises them, and takes them back to one or more past lives.
Palliative past life regression
This has had an amazing effect on a lot of patients who have only a few weeks or months to live. It puts their own imminent death into context. Knowing that they have had a past life allows them to reframe their impending death as simply a one step in an endless cycle. They cease to fear death and just accept it as an inevitable part of a much larger process.
I think this is a wonderful use of hypnosis. Whether you believe in past lives or not, giving comfort to the dying in a very direct and vivid way has to be worthwhile.
