HISTORY AND EVOLUTION TO THIS DAY
Regression therapy primarily based on the discoveries and techniques of hypnotherapy and psychoanalysis, aiming the aspects of past events in order to solve current conflicts and emotions.
Hypnotherapy and psychoanalysis both developed and became popular in the middle of last century. Modern psychology now also shares the belief that the past is the cause of turmoil in people’s lives.
Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, developed the concept of bringing the unconscious to the conscious. Many of his ideas and discoveries formed the development of regression therapy.
PAST LIFE REGRESSION (PLR) THERAPY / ANCESTERAL HEALING
Morris Netherton’s “Past Lives Therapy” in 1978 was the first published book in the field of Past Life Therapy. It was a start of on-going teachings of the theories in regression therapy across the world.
Brian Weiss, American psychiatrist, hypnotherapist and author is another prominent figure in development of Past Life Regression therapy techniques since the 1980s. “Many lives, Many Masters” first published in 1988.
Benefits of PLR:
PLR helps to improve interpersonal relationships, treat allergies, overcome fears and phobias, anxiety, deep guilt feelings and heal chronic diseases as well. Releasing any oaths, vows, curses taken up in a Past Live/ Life of Ancestor as they no longer serve, people also gain the wisdom and learning of the Past Life. This experience helps people to live a life of compassion and love.
