Sometimes a set of beliefs become so overwhelming that we need to separate it from our consciousness as a means of survival and/or sanity. This is what we often do with trauma even in our current life time. We call them repressed memories.
By using our imagination as the vehicle to gather up those “packets” of energy and belief systems that have separated themselves from us as a way to help keep our main energy functioning, we can bring them into our central Self. This would be similar to soul fragment recovery, except that we are making it more personal.
Listen to Franks’s experience
When we do a Past Life Integration, I will guide you through it, as you do the actual work. Many people have a warm, loving feeling after this experience.
When would be a good time to do a Past Life Integration?
This work is done only by phone, because we need to interact with each other verbally as we do it. Past Life Integrations are a part of a phone session which usually lasts for at least an hour.
We may have already worked on finding some beliefs to clear, and a few of them may not have completely cleared, so I then go to Creator/Source and ask to see the Past Life character within you who is holding these beliefs in place.
What actually happens during a Past Life Integration?
I begin to get a picture. I see these characters in symbols, not necessarily as they may have appeared in their physical bodies. I’ll tell you what I’m seeing and encourage you to experience them in your own way.
There is no right or wrong way to “see” or experience this character. It really doesn’t even matter if we could “prove” their existence by doing research in a library. In fact, you don’t even need to believe in past lives. This technique is simply a framework in which to gather that energy to help release it so you can find relief from those stuck areas in your life.
Now as you get an image or an experience of this character, I will remind you that you have mental telepathy with this part of yourself. That means you can just think, and this character will hear you and vice versa.
I will then speak to this part of you as a way to help you know what to say. We will start by thanking her for coming up and meeting us today. We are taking this as a signal that she is ready to let go of her life and move into your’s now. We want him to know who you are, so you will introduce yourself as his future.
I will usually get a brief “story” to help make sense of how come he is holding the beliefs we have discovered. Then as both of you feel ready, I will help you begin to imagine walking your character through time. We leave behind all the pain, trauma, fear, guilt, shame and so on.
She brings with her, the wisdom and lessons she has learned. She walks on through time and melts right into your heart. I will then be quiet and give you time to do that at your own speed and you will let me know when you are done.
What am I hoping to gain by doing this work?
This work is about healing, not about past life information. We may learn a few things, and it can be interesting and fun… and beside the point. We want to move through the experience into healing.
How long does it take?
Often we can do a past life integration in just five or ten minutes. Sometimes the character needs help to let go of his old ways of thinking. Sometimes she may need help to know that she can trust you to be ok if she lets go of her old beliefs. We will work through each issues as it comes up.
Is Past Life Integration the same as Past Life Regression?
No. I actually don’t do what most people would call past life regression. I probably could, I am a Doctor in Clinical Hypnotherapy, so I have the credentials that would support doing regressions.
My understanding of past life regressions is that the facilitator helps the client get into a relaxed state, a trance, and then walks them back through time and keeps going back until the client begins remembering events. The client may even change voices, gain an accent, speak a different language and so on.
So, why don’t you do Past Life Regressions?
I have a basic philosophy that the value of knowing about our past lives comes in our integration of how it is affecting us in this life time. If we are unable to resolve the issues within that past life, then it actually distracts and potentially traumatizes us in this life time.
Let’s say you go back in time and find out you were hung for a crime you didn’t commit. In a past life regression, you may actually go back and re-live the trauma of being hung. You feel and remember the sensations of being hung, not to mention the emotional pain of being killed for something you didn’t even do.
What good is it to you to go through that horrible event, just for the sake of knowing it? Nothing, that I can think of. I would have nightmares and feel horrible for weeks maybe months knowing something like this about me. I don’t even watch the news because it’s too intense. <weak smile>
So, regression alone, is not good for us, in my humble opinion.
Are you saying that Past Life Integrations are without emotions?
When you finish bringing your past life character into your heart you may have a positive feeling and a sensation of wholeness. During the Integration itself, there are times when some people definitely do feel what the lost part has gone through. So, yes, you may experience brief waves of grief, fear, abandonment or whatever fits your situation. The key is that we go all the way through the feelings to the healing.
Does the Past Life Story somehow connect to the current life issues?
Often the story will make sense to you in this life time. Let’s say we are working with that part that was hung. The “symptoms” of that life time may show up in your current life as constant neck problems.
Integrating this past life character may bring great relief from those neck problems because that part of you is no longer holding on to that trauma. This releases the memories from your DNA.
How will I know if I’m being distracted by wanting to know about my past lives?
The bottom line to learning about who we were in a past life is to be sure your motivation is to resolve those issues in the past as a way to heal who you are as a whole being. If your motivation is simple curiosity, then be very careful.
Curiosity is a code word for distraction from our purpose for being here in physical form. We need to stay focused on continuing our remembering of being unconditional Love in physical form. We are here on Earth because we want the experience of knowing we are God/Love and we can be Love even in the experience of duality as both human and Spirit.
