Why You Should Allow a Few Months Between Regressions

Why You Should Allow a Few Months Between Regressions

I remember when I was studying the Edgar Cayce life readings in which he would reveal someone’s past lives, he limited it to four or less. The reason he did that was because he did not want to overload anyone with information about so many past lives that they’d shut down and not work on any of them. I also read somewhere that Shirley MacLaine was “cut off” from gaining additional past life information because spirit knew it was too much for her to process. 

I often have eager clients who want multiple sessions back to back. I discourage them from doing so, preferring they wait for a period between sessions–the length of time determined by how ready they are to add another lifetime to work on. I do this for a number of reasons. 

First, when you do a past-life regression, you remember everything you experienced to a certain extent. Immediately after the session, you go into processing mode. This happens on a number of levels within you, not all of which are recognizable. You have opened the door and spirit knows you are curious about what happened to the late, great you. It starts to send you more information about that life. It could be in the form of a dream, or a flash you get while taking a walk, listening to music, reading a book–any number of ways spirit communicates with you. That’s called “bleed through” and it’s a normal part of the process. During this time, it’s important to pay attention to synchronicities in your life, as those are all messages spirit is sending to help you integrate all you learned from that session. 

Second, when I do a regression, I ask spirit to guide my client to the lifetime that is most impacting them today. This is the lifetime where they created “unfinished business” they brought in with them now, knowing their current life is ideal for exploring, resolving and forgiving those specific issues. Unless those issues are resolved, there is no sense in adding more to your plate. This would overload any soul desiring to heal and grow. 

Third, I do make an exception to those who want to explore the same life in greater depth. I spent quite a bit of time exploring my 18th century life, and while I had glimpses of other lifetimes, I did not abandon one life in favor of another. I knew that my current personality was close to 85-percent of the person I was in the 18th century, so I stuck with working intensely on that life in order to weed through the trauma and negative subliminal messages that life implanted in my soul. It took a long time to do that.

I do believe our past lives are a treasure trove of information about who we are today, so I would never tell anyone to stop seeking regressions.  As my friend Andy so aptly said: “You have to regress to progress!” What I would say is to work on what spirit gives you, one piece at a time. Pace yourself. It’s important to fully recognize, deal with, and heal that which has been presented to you. Once you do that, you’re free to go on and explore other lives. But remember, spirit will only give you that which it knows you can handle. If you get out of your depth, you may find the information won’t be as forthcoming. So pace yourself.  You’ll know when you’re ready to move to the next level. I’ll be here when you do!
