Past Lives Through Soul Writing–Where It All Began

Past Lives Through Soul Writing–Where It All Began

Many years ago, before I was seriously contemplating a career in past-life research and therapy, I was focused on my writing career. I had been working in various corporate advertising departments and/or ad agencies, primarily as a copywriter. While I loved my work, there was a part of me that felt I could write at a deeper, more profound level than producing text for a company brochure or press release. I wanted to make the leap from copywriter to feature writer and produce pieces that would inspire others. But how to do that? 

At the time, I was a big follower of Dick Sutphen. I enjoyed his books, his subliminal hypnosis tapes, and his lectures. He had a large retail operation going at the time and had catalogs filled with the various products he developed. One in particular caught my eye. It was in his Writer’s Programming series called “Start Writing Now.”  

I had not worked with a hypnosis tape before, so I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but the idea of writing in an altered state intrigued me. As I listened to the tape, Sutphen suggested creating a mental movie in which I perceived myself already writing, to create a vivid fantasy in which I was successfully expressing myself in words. He suggested the movie was real and asked me to play the role, play the part, and experience every detail in my mind. If I did this, he said, my desires would be communicated to my subconscious mind, which would assist me by generating circumstances to create my programmed reality. Mental movie? Play the role? The floodgates opened. When he said to begin the visualization, my mental movie began:

It was evening. I saw a young woman with long, straight, black hair standing timidly at the top of the stairs. She was dressed in a loose-fitting, long, white cotton shift with a white, lace-trimmed nightcap on her head. With only a candle to illuminate her way, she cautiously began to descend, looking to see if anyone was awake. I sensed that she did not want anyone to discover her roaming the house at such a late hour. 

When she reached the bottom of the stairs, she lit another candle on a nearby desk. She pulled out the chair, slowly seated herself, took out a journal that was tucked in the folds of her skirt, and reached for a quill pen. The moment she began to write, the pen I had poised over my own journal began to move. Excerpts from that notation follow:

“This summer was especially beautiful. The flowers in the garden were resplendent in their color and fragrance. I so enjoyed walking among them. It kept the memory of him ever near to me. I could feel his presence. I could hear is voice. Such a comfort in these difficult times of separation…” and on and on it went for four pages until the writing stopped. Then there was a hesitation and then a date was written: September 7, 1793!

I was jolted awake. What in the world was this? It read like a historic romance novel. Resplendent? I knew I didn’t write like that. I had never written like that. Thinking it a fluke, I tried it again the following night. The same thing happened. This went on for weeks, until I put two and two together and realized, “she” was a past-life aspect of “me” and was sharing her diary entries with me.

After that, I started to look into how to use this form of writing as an adjunct to past-life work. It seemed to me that having your past-life aspect communicate with you through writing would give you more of the back story–a sort of fill-in-the-blanks, not only in conjunction with a regression, but as a stand-alone tool to access past-life information. Today I offer a soul writing session as an option after a regression. Those who do so are always pleasantly surprised at what they receive and how it complements the information in the regression.

In 2011-12, I led 50 research volunteers in an extensive research study of the impact of using soul writing after a regression. The results of that study are in my book, “Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing.” I am teaching this method at the A.R.E.’s Psychic Development Conference, November 5-7; as well as a stand-alone workshop on November 18. If you’re interested in how this transformative tool can be applied toward past life studies, I invite you to read my book and/or attend one of my sessions. To book a past-life regression with soul writing, go to my website, under Services, and make your appointment on my online calendar.
