Storytelling is not only a mode of expression during past life regression; it is also a way to tap into a person’s long-term memory. For some reason, memories that are retrieved during past life regression are stored in a person’s long term memory more efficiently than regular experiences that are gained from day to day interactions with other people. Past life regression becomes memorable precisely because a person is allowed to express themselves through stories. Humans are natural storytellers – this has been proven again and again by anthropologists throughout the world. No matter what culture or race you are from, chances are, you like telling stories and if we combine the human race’s natural love for storytelling and past life regression, we have the perfect formula for truly memorable and engaging hypnosis sessions. We now know that people like to express themselves through storytelling.

The important question now is what kind of stories do people like to relate during regression? Based on my personal experience and the experience of so many other hypnotists who use past life regression, the most common feature of stories that are shared during regression sessions is day to day life. It is very rare for a client to start telling stories about famous individuals from a particular point of time. Even if the person was a teenager during the 1900’s it is unlikely that he or she would be talking about the President or other notable people during that time period. Such specific information might be helpful in pinpointing the era that a person has come from in their past life but in the grand scheme of things, this kind of information doesn’t really contribute anything useful to the dialogue. This is probably the reason why people generally don’t talk about such things during regression sessions. It might be exciting to learn about popular people from the past but since the client is there to solve their personal issues the memories and stories that will come to the surface of the client’s consciousness will revolve around the following themes: What they have done to attain peace of mind Experiences that have strong emotional associations (e.g. extremely happy, extremely sad) Experiences that have defined them in some way Experiences that have pushed them behave or think in a particular manner Things that the client has done to other people that may have had a significant mark on the person’s past life In addition to relating events and experiences that have shaped and defined the person’s past life, it should also be noted that hypnotic clients may also relate memories that are parallel or synchronic in some way to what the client is experiencing at the present time.
Synchronicities are extremely important especially if the client is searching for personal healing and closure. Often, specific memories of a person’s past life manifest during therapy for important reasons. However, it is up to the client to determine why these memories are manifesting at the present time. You cannot make direct associations yourself. As much as possible, let the client make these vital associations for himself herself. The less intervention given during a regression, the more effective the therapy becomes. So how can you help a client who seems to be on to something important? You can tell the client to be more aware of any kind of pattern that may emerge from surfacing memories. Also, it would be helpful if you can encourage your client to look for any special meanings in the surfacing memories. Questions like “how do you think this even affected you in your past life” can really tickle the imagination and will help the client dig deeper into the recesses of their own memory bank. Many people think that past life regression is the ‘cure’ for what ails people spiritually, emotionally or mentally. This is not the real nature of past life regression. Past life regression is just the path that increases the chances of a person being able to piece together what needs to be done to improve their life. It is not the solution; it is merely a way to find the solution. If your client says that they are not satisfied with the past life regression because they still feel troubled after a few sessions, you have to emphasize that they are the one responsible for piecing together the answers from the memories that are surfacing during the therapy sessions. Also, it would be helpful if you can mention that self-healing is not an overnight thing. Self- healing is always a ‘work in progress’ and it continues even after the therapy sessions have already ended.
