Past Life Regression

First Session

6th December 2002

​

Hypnotist - 

Okay, once more take a nice deep breath, slowly release the breath, as you fell yourself drifting back in to that wonderful relaxing feeling once more, calm and relaxed. When you hear the words calm and relaxed, you will very quickly drift deeper and deeper back into this wonderful relaxing feeling. Now as your body once more takes a rest, you know you are supported by the couch, so your subconscious mind can be active and the only function of your conscious mind is to relay to me what you’re observing, what you are experiencing, just use your imagination for me once more and find yourself in that garden. This garden is a representation of the inner mind of the perfect balanced inner person, so just enjoy the garden in your mind add to it any elements that you wish to have in there and keep back any elements that you don’t wish to have there. Exploring your mind seeing the colours, feeling the warmth, feeling the peace and the tranquillity of this wonderful place, you know that it is a place that you can visit any time when you wish to find peace within. Just wander through the garden now until you come to those steps once more, the ten steps which lead down to the lower terrace and to a deeper level of consciousness, your subconscious mind is ready for this journey now, so I’ll count you down as we start to make our climb down, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, and on to the lower pathway. Be aware now that there is a chair beside you, one that you can rest in at any time, and you can return to this chair at any time in your onward journey in to your past lives, but for now I want you to walk past the chair and continue down a pathway that stretches way out in front of you, way in to the distance, it’s still part of the garden and on one side of the pathway are trees and shrubs, on the other side of this pathway is a high wall and all along this wall are many many doors, and each one of these doors is an access to your past. Each one of these doors represents a year of your existence, the door nearest to you being right now, 2002, and the further down the path you go, the further back in time you go, so just to tell me that you can see all the doors now, just say yes. Just relax, there’s no pressure, just use your imagination to see these doors. Tell me Matt, what do you see?

Matt - 

I nea- I nearly see a wall

​

Hypnotist -

Okay just be aware of the wall there to one side of the pathway

​

Matt - 

It’s on the right

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, just be aware that these doors are there in this wall, just use your imagination, whether you’re thinking something to do with your artwork, just visualising something that you’re ready to paint or construct in your mind. Just be aware of the doors in this wall as you start to make your way down this pathway, the visions will grow stronger and stronger now as you relax as your worry of not finding things disappears. There’s no hurry, all you have to do is relax, just look for these doors now and you start to wander down this path, back in time. Just be aware that you are wandering past the nineteen nineties now, just strolling down this path in the garden on this warm summers day. Going past the nineteen eighties now in to the past, in to the seventies, past the year you were born in this present life ever onward. Tell me what you’re observing now?

​

Matt - 

Can’t see much.

​

Hypnotist -

How about what you’re thinking? It doesn’t matter if you can’t see at this stage, as long as you’re imagining these things and thinking about them, and being aware of them.

​

Matt - 

Something like a flower, or a tunnel, or a....something

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. That’s just your subconscious mind getting used to this part of the journey. One of these doors in your past will now stand out, the visions will grow stronger and stronger, and a door will stand out to you, one door amongst all the others, it’ll be a different colour, it’ll be lit up, it’ll be one striking door amongst the others. Just be aware, just use your imagination, as if you’re visualising a door ready to paint it on to canvas. Just use your imagination and find a door that stands out from the others, and tell me when you’re aware of a door that you’re standing in front of. What are you aware of now?

​

Matt - 

Same

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, I’m going to speak directly to your subconscious now, just relax and allow your subconscious to answer for you and accept what comes in to your head, I’m talking to Matt’s subconscious now, I want you to show Matt one of your many past lives now. I want you to first of all tell him a year that this past life represents, now Matt, just allow a number to come in to your head, and tell me what it is.

​

Matt - 

Eighteen fifty two

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, further more Matt’s subconscious, I want you to show Matt the door that represents eighteen fifty two in this row of doors, tell me Matt when you see this. The rest is easy now, you’ve already chosen a time in your life to discover. Just be aware of yourself standing in front of a door now, the door which represents eighteen fifty two, it doesn’t matter how well you can see it. Just be aware that you are standing in front of a door. The door your subconscious is showing you now is a life in eighteen fifty two. Just be aware that his door is in front of you and you’re opening it now, and stepping through, closing it behind you. I just want you to stand there for a few moments and relax, you’re discovering a life in eighteen fifty two now, and the visions around you start to grow now, stronger and stronger. What I want you to do for me is in your minds eye, using your imagination, just look down at your feet, just look down at your feet and see what you’re wearing on your feet, what comes in to your mind? What do you imagine you are wearing on your feet?

​

Matt - 

Black shoes

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, just work your way up the body, up to your legs, up to your body and describe what else you’re wearing.

​

Matt - 

Um light coloured um some sort of urr trousers, perhaps cut off at the knee.. a waist coat of some sort and a black coat... long... not down to the floor, thigh length

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, you’re doing just fine now, uh from time to time I’m going to ask your subconscious direct questions and just accept the answers that come in to your head. How old are you?

​

Matt - 

Eighteen

​

Hypnotist -

Well done, I’ll ask some more questions later on but for now i want you to lift your gaze from yourself and look at your surroundings, use your imagination top see where you are, imagine where you are, and describe those surroundings to me

​

Matt - 

Um dark, dark to the sides, a cliff maybe

​

Hypnotist -

So you’re outside

​

Matt - 

and definitely looking up

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, is it a warm sunny day or..? Is it dark everywhere, is it light?

​

Matt - 

It’s warm

​

Hypnotist -

Is the sun shining?

​

Matt - 

Yeah

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. Okay look down to your feet again to begin with and just see what you’re standing on, is it a pathway or grass or a...

​

Matt - 

It’s a beach

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. Okay slowly lift your gaze now as all the as all the images form stronger and stronger around you and you find yourself on a beach. Tell me what else you see. You’re doing great now.

​

Matt - 

I see a cliff, it’s right in front of me, with grass on top. Sometimes its right in front of my face and other times I’m further away from it.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay I’m going to ask you a few questions now and allow the answers just to spring in to your thoughts. What is your name?

​

Matt - 

James

​

Hypnotist -

And your surname?

​

Matt -

s...s...something Smith or Smethwick or s..s.. Smyth or something.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. Now where is this beach that you’re standing on?

​

Matt - 

I think its in Wales.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay and whereabouts do you live?

​

Matt - 

I don’t know

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. You’re doing just fine. Just be aware of how you feel in this this new body of yours, eighteen years of age. How does it feel?

​

Matt - 

I feel strong, my legs feel strong

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, now you can be aware of why you’re here

​

Matt - 

I don’t know, I think I’m lost, I’m not dressed for the beach, it’s not a holiday

​

Hypnotist -

Is there anyone else on the beach?

​

Matt - 

No

​

Hypnotist -

Okay just let the minutes unfold in front of you now, as time ticks forward, just see what happens now, just be the participating observer here and see what happens

​

Matt - 

Feel like the cliffs disappearing quickly, I think I’m at the bottom of it, looking right at it.

​

Hypnotist -

How are you feeling, what emotions are running through you?

​

Matt - 

I’m lying on the floor, I think I’ve fallen off it, or something, it won’t go away.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, just let those images fade for a moment in your mind, I want you to, you have the facility to move backwards and forwards in time, I want you to move backwards in time, back to the significant event which led you to be lying on this beach looking up at this cliff. Your subconscious will know where this is, I want the images to form now new thoughts coming in to your mind, tell me what’s happening now.

Matt - I’m at the top now looking over, I can see the sea, the sun’s glistening on the sea. I keep looking over

​

Hypnotist -

How far down is it?

​

Matt - 

Its a long way, I see stones at the bottom

​

Hypnotist -

What’s in your thoughts about what you’re doing here?

​

Matt - 

I’m not happy.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, allow the events to unfold and tell me what happens.

​

Matt - 

I’m deciding whether to jump.

​

Hypnotist -

While you’re making this decision, just think about why you’re unhappy, what’s led you to this point in your life

​

Matt - 

I’ve done something wrong, I feel the sharp grass under my feet. I can smell gorse. I haven’t got shoes on now, my ankles are bare. I can’t decide.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, what have you done wrong? What’s led you here? What terrible thing have you done to make you at this age want to throw yourself over a cliff. Beware of your feelings and your emotions.

​

Matt - 

I think I raped someone. A young woman with red hair, dressed in yellow, a tight bodiced dress, with a full skirt.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay be there now when this happens, be aware of this person in front of you, before you go any further, I want you to look in to this persons eyes and be aware of who this person is and see if it’s anyone you recognise as being in your later life as Matt.Your subconscious will instinctively know if this is anyone in another life that has reincarnated with you, is there anyone you recognise here?

​

Matt - 

No

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. Tell me what happens.

​

Matt - 

She’s smiling, a lovely smile.... pale skinned face.... I’m kissing her... she’s pushing me away. She’s not smiling. I feel like I’m running.... looking back... she’s lying on the ground....I’m looking back, running up a dirt track and she’s in a barn, its quite remote..... still running

​

Hypnotist -

What’s going through your mind as you ran?

​

Matt - 

I’m scared.

​

Hypnotist -

Have you raped her or attacked her?

​

Matt - 

I don’t know, all I know she’s lying, she was smiling and now she’s not, she’s lying on the floor.. I’m running... I can feel that pointy grass again.... sharp grass... I’m back on the cliff now, on the top, I can see a barn in the distance... I’m standing looking down, the sun glints off the sea again, I can hear the waves... I going to jump... I’ve jumped... my bodies twisting round...I’m on the ground now, just lying looking up, feel peaceful... just lying.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay, move forward a while, a few moments, maybe an hour or so and see where you find yourself now.

​

Matt - 

My feet are cold. I feel like I’m paddling... in the water.

​

Hypnotist -

Are you standing up or still lying down?

​

Matt -

Standing up

​

Hypnotist -

So you survived

​

Matt - 

Yes. I’m the same person... I don’t feel hurt... feel peaceful... just paddling... watching the sun glint... its a nice breeze... no one there... the beach is stretching out in front of me... just walking through the water... I can see houses in the distance... less beach... its a village... I can see houses... I’m walking up a jetty... made of stone... there's a white house with timber, wood on the outside, a timber frame... big wooden doors... I can see hay... and a cart... and a horse... beer, beer barrels...or something on the back... the horse is by the side, the carts just on its own... a small street with cobbles... house very close... a narrow street... I’m walking up a narrow street, there’s an Inn, pub with barrels on the sign. Its a white building too, timber frame, same as the other place, steps leading down with iron railings and a door... I’m opening the door... I think it’s loud... lots of people...people lifting beer glasses, not glasses, mugs, big they’re wooden mugs... the woman in the yellow dress is there, I think she works there, she’s smiling... she’s older than me

​

Hypnotist -

And does she see you, recognise you?

​

Matt - 

Yes... she’s looking at me... she’s got mugs in her hand, red hair and a beauty spot on the right cheek

​

Hypnotist -

​

Matt -

​

Hypnotist -

I’m following her... kissing... my arms around her... undoing her t... her laces.. ties... feel nervous... white cotton... unbuttoning her top...it’s an older body... I think there’s a tattoo, a swallow on her hip... red pubic hair... she’s naked... making love... it’s nice... feels warm...

​

Hypnotist -

Now you’re here, do you understand what happened to you at the cliff?

​

Matt - 

I don’t know... I feel my legs ache... and my knees... I’m kneeling on my knees... just lying there... I think I’m praying... she’s not moving... just lying... I’m standing up... crying...she’s not moving, her eyes are open... arms are out stretched... just looking down...... on the floor...I’m walking away slowly... up some stone steps... to another room... wooden door a wooden door... I’m sitting on my bed... my feet feel cold... just sitting, white shirt, puffy sleeves, tied at the arms, the wrists, looking at my hands... just looking at my hands

​

Hypnotist -

What did you do?

​

Matt - 

I think I strangled her, put my hands round her neck... squeezed, squoze, squeezed

​

Hypnotist -

Why did you do this?

​

Matt - 

Its that smile... its that smile... pushing her neck in to the ground...she shouldn’t have been with others.. she’s my special

​

Hypnotist -

Does she take money for going with others? Or is she just promiscuous?

​

Matt - 

She doesn’t take money, no she does take money... I’m not sure.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay I just want you to rest now, you’re doing very well, just let all those images fade now and just be aware of that door that’s behind you when you stepped in to this life, it’s now behind you again, just be aware that you can step back out on to the pathway now, the pathway I described with all the doors and the high wall, step out on to this pathway now bringing back all the memories that you wish to keep about this life and tell me when you’re back on the pathway.

​

Matt - 

I’m on the path.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. I want you to make your way back down the pathway now going passed those doors bringing you back up to the present

​

Matt - 

I’m walking backwards

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. I want you to make your way to the steps now, get passed the chair where you can rest.I want you to find the steps which will lead you back to normality, the steps in the garden. Tell me when your at the foot of the steps

​

Matt - 

I'm there.

​

Hypnotist -

Okay. Make your way up now, one, two, three, four, five, mind and body slowly returning back to normality now, back to the present, six, seven, eight, nine ten, fully refreshed and fully back to normality.

​

Matt -

Hypnotist -
