Why Zoom Sessions are More Effective Than In Person

Why Zoom Sessions are More Effective Than In Person

After my last podcast, I had many folks contact me inquiring about an in person session. As many of you know, I no longer offer in person sessions. When Covid hit a few years ago, I was forced to close my office. I wasn’t sure what to do, but then spoke to my friend and colleague, Peter Woodbury. Peter told me he had been doing regressions via Zoom for quite some time and found them most effective. I didn’t believe it at first, but then decided to experiment with my friends to see if it did, indeed, work. Boy, did it!

One of the most important elements in a successful past-life regression is for the client to be in a deep state of relaxation and what better place to do that than in your own home. There isn’t the anxiety of getting into your car, driving some distance to an unknown office, thinking the whole way about what will unfold, and then being in a foreign environment trying to relax! Offices do not provide the kind of quiet that a home environment does, so even though the office I had was fairly quiet, we often were disturbed by the sound of loud traffic or lawn mowers. Some people had a hard time getting comfortable in the chair I provided (although I thought it was very comfortable!). And most of all, doing in person sessions meant that I was limited geographically to the number of clients I could see. You had to live within driving distance of Charlottesville to see me in person.

Once I mastered Zoom sessions, many of those problems disappeared. I could work with clients on a global basis and I have done regressions with folks in the U.K., Australia, Japan, Norway and other countries. Working from home, I have more control over the environment in terms of distractions at my end (although occasionally a lawn mower will sever the quiet!). Clients who are in their own home are able to lie in their bed, or kick back in their favorite recliner, knowing where they are and being able to freely get up, use the restroom or get a glass of water. They can also control the level of noise at their end by booking the session at a time that is optimal for a peaceful reverie. After the session, they can relax as long as they like, pondering what they just experienced in the comfort of their own home. They don’t have to worry about having to leave the office because another client is in the waiting room, nor do they have to think about that ride home where they could be distracted by thoughts as they try to integrate everything they saw into their present life.

All in all, I have found Zoom sessions invaluable to my practice. While they sometimes present technical challenges to my clients, or if Zoom freezes up or goes down, overall it has been an extremely positive, successful means of working with clients from all walks of life.

So if you’re concerned about using Zoom, let me assure you that it is safe, effective and will provide you with an opportunity to explore your past life in the privacy and comfort of your own home. That’s an optimal environment if I do say so myself!
