Trying to get over your fears and phobias has involved various treatments over the last 30 to 40 years. The American Psychiatric Association only recognized phobias as an anxiety disorder in the 1980s. Some treatments include CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and medicines. However an emerging practice, called Past Life Regression (PLT) or Past Life Regression Therapy is beginning to take shape. We find out what Past Life Regression in New York is like.
What is Past Life Regression?
It is a type of therapy where the patient is put under hypnosis. Then, through the guide of the practitioner, they explore the memories of the patient’s ‘past life’ or ‘reincarnation’. This can help uncover some deeply-hidden phobias or fears. Most of these ‘past life’ memories are likely to be fabricated memories, or combined memories, experiences and knowledge rather than an actual event that happened in the past.
Most of the time, its success depends on believing in reincarnation and suggestions made by the practitioner.
It has been used for millennia by the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali in ancient India. In 200 BC, the scholar Patanjali wrote about the current living soul being overburdened with the stresses of the previous life or reincarnation. Their method of past life regression prati-prasavexplores memories of a former life within the subject. There are still some specialists of this particular practice.
In more recent times, it has become more popular in the 1950s after, having been put under hypnosis, American housewife Virginia Tighe described the past life of a 1800s woman called Bridey Murphy. Though this was later to be disproved, it showed that Tighe was recounting memories of her earlier childhood. Click here!
Does Past Life Regression work?
According to Eli Billious, a Past Life Regression practitioner in New York, who was trained under Dr Weiss, the ‘father’ of modern Past Life Regression in the USA, claims that this type of practice can help an array of issues affecting people in the modern world.
This could help identify the source of unhealthy relationships, loneliness, insomnia, and arachnophobia. His homepage shows various video testimonials. There have been other claims that it can, more importantly, recover lost memories, especially in cases of sexual abuse at a young age.
However, according to most mental health professionals and general practitioners, Past Life Regression is not considered a psychiatric treatment. For example, DrPandarakalam argues that Past Life Regression is subject to the claim that it can try to prove things that do not exist, so should be treated with caution, and that it should only be practiced by well-trained therapists. Furthermore, the idea it can aid recovering cases of sexual abuse has been disproved by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Past Life Regression has proven successful in several cases over the course of the last century, to a certain extent. However, in an experimental or clinical environment, it has yet to show any positive results. More study needs to be done in this area of therapy before it can be considered a legitimate treatment.
