Dangers Of Past Life Regression
Our past experiences have its effects in our current state of mind,
behavior, motives, desires and preferences. These past experiences are
usually the unresolved issues or conflicts, repressed memories, fears,
phobias or traumas. We try to deny and reject the idea of having these
memories, fears or problems. However, they will eventually find their way
up to the surface or in the consciousness of the person. They manifest in
a person's dreams, habits, recurring thoughts or even slips of the
tongue. Past Life Regression is designed to combat the effects of
These undesirable past experiences usually cloud up a person's mind and
make him/her fixated in a certain stage of mind. They can not move on.
They become dysfunctional. Professional help can be sought to combat
these repressed thoughts. Psychologists and psychotherapists specialize
in dealing with problems like this. They have techniques to diagnose the
problem and eventually identify solutions for these problems.
One such solution is called the Past Life Regression, which involves the
technique called hypnosis where the patient is guided by the therapist
through out the process of visualizing some images or scenes that are
designed to make him/her visit the past.
Generally, doing past life regression may sometimes involve two dangers.
However, being informed and prepared of these dangers can definitely go a
long way in controlling the damages.
1. Physiological Reactions: The mind does not only house a person's
memories and thoughts. It also triggers several physiological reactions.
Remembering a painful memory or a traumatic experience may make the
person nervous, hysterical or anxious. It can cause palpitations,
increase in blood pressure, hyperventilation or even heart attack. Before
going through past life regression, it is extremely important to know the
health condition of the patients including his/her medical history. It is
also a must to prepare first aid or pre-cautionary medicines just in case
the situation becomes worse.
2. Psychological Disturbance: Going through the process of past life
regression does not and will never guarantee absolute solutions to
problems. The patient's readiness to accept and face his/her fears,
painful memories and traumas will definitely play a huge part in the
success of the process. However, no matter how ready the patient is at
the onset of the process, one will never know what will happen as the
process progresses. Going through these painful memories may make the
patient undergo psychological disturbances such as low self esteem,
losing one's morale or even making the fears and issues worse.
These are just general dangers that may happen. The possibilities may
vary depending on the current state of mind, behavior and general well-
being of the patient. Furthermore, the level of resiliency of the patient
will also influence the outcome of the past life regression procedure and
the dangerous effects that it will bring.
Revisiting your past life or experiences can prove to be tricky,
difficult and even dangerous. On the other hand, it can also be proven to
be rewarding. However, depending on the complexity of the problem, it may
be best to consult mind specialists before attempting to perform a past
life regression procedure. Being prepared for the possible effects is an
essential step in doing the process. After all, the objective of the
procedure is to diagnose and identify solutions to the patient's problems
and not worsening it or adding more problems to it.
