FOR SPIRITUAL REGRESSION
Personal Demands on the
At one of my workshops, I was discussing the effort required in taking people to their life between lives. At the first break a hypnotherapist came up to me and said, “Thank you very much for your time, but I'm leaving. I now realize this work is just too difficult.
I have a nice, regulated practice. The hypnosis management requirements of spiritual regression is just not an area of therapy I feel equipped to handle.” I told this honest person it was a good thing he recognized these concerns now rather than later.
There is no question that three to four hours of intense work,
juggling many balls at once, without rest, is demanding. Essentially,
you must contend with the simultaneous interaction of a client's immortal soul and the mental processes of their current human brain.
These two egos may be conflicted by disrupted integration. An LBL
facilitator must cope with this duality of the client's mind while refining and adjusting long phases of spiritual imagery to support a comfortable passage. To do this you must constantly track their mental journey through the geography of the spirit world. This is called mapping.
The motivations, fears, self-image, and expectations of your client will be determined by the physical, emotional, and mental makeup of their host body. These elements of temperament are influenced by what I call “the I signs of the soul”: insight, intuition,
and imagination. While your hypnosis subject is telling you about their spiritual life, they are communicating this information through their current mortal body. This can be both confusing and gutwrenching for them. As the drama of the afterlife unfolds in the mind of the client, their transpersonal view of the other side is affected by how well they can face truths about their real self.
In addition to everything else, you will also be required to concentrate on the many previous karmic experiences your client has had in other bodies so they will comprehend patterns of cause and effect that affect their life today. Practicing LBL therapy will increase your past life regression skills greatly as you move from life to life using the spirit world as a bridge. You may be required to alternate both permissive and authoritarian hypnosis techniques while shifting back and forth between the client's past lives, soul experiences,
and current life. Much depends upon their receptivity,
which may vary from past life to spirit world settings.
Your task as a spiritual regressionist is to help the client manage their visualizations by allowing them to bring all this information into focus so that they can see relationships by truly understanding their soul and purpose in life and thus be empowered by their session.
As an LBL facilitator, this effort can be arduous and requires both skill and tenacity. Certainly we don't engage in personal attachments,
but it is a cold therapist who does not feel compassion and empathy for a client who may be going through a difficult time recounting all the reasons why they are in their current body and what their guides and masters have to tell them. No motivated, caring hypnotherapist can remain detached in this work. After a demanding spiritual regression session I usually find myself drained.
Clearing my head with hard exercise in the mountains helps me a great deal.
Importance of Training and Experience
My LBL training classes have a mixture of licensed therapists and certified hypnosis professionals. Typically, a substantial number of hours in basic and advanced hypnotherapy training is required,
along with a few years of private practice. Having some background in past life experience is of great benefit before tackling the demanding work of a spiritual regressionist. One does not need to be licensed as a psychologist, psychotherapist, or counselor to be a skilled hypnosis facilitator. However, when working with troubled clients, some background in counseling guidance is invaluable.
Ethically, therapists are expected to recognize their level of competence and professional qualifications and not employ treatment procedures that are beyond the scope of their training. To all practitioners of spiritual regression who assist clients in seeking the truth about themselves, I would say the more exposure to academic training and professional experience, the better.
The issue of self-awareness is important to you as an LBL therapist since it directly relates to your influence on the client. Your energy is affected by your own intuition, motivation, and integrity. I
have great respect for Taoist philosophy. The Taoists believe that inspiration occurs when one's conscious mind gets out of the way of their natural unconscious energy. In a sense, our cosmic chi (energy)
is what brings harmony and clarity to the body. Having a keen internal focus also makes you a better therapist.
The best regressionists have a perception that allows them to know something without the use of conscious reasoning. These therapists sense things at appropriate moments when working with people. During LBL therapy it is possible for both facilitator and subject to receive help from their respective guides, and these moments should be recognized, especially in the behavioral areas of making choices and problem solving.
I believe it is possible to train yourself to recognize and analyze symbols which illustrate spirit-world experiences that cannot be defined in a material way. These metaphors may be symbolic of something on Earth that has applications to a visualized spirit-world event. Frankly, there are times during a session when I feel I am somewhat telepathic. This can be a hindrance when I don't consciously block what I am thinking at critical moments with a client who can pick up my thoughts.
I find daily meditation and controlled breathing to be helpful in my LBL practice. In yoga, prana refers to the life force or energy that is manifested in each of us through our breath. As a spiritual regressionist, I manipulate my breathing at times during a session in an attempt to extend my mind into a higher state of consciousness.
I may even enter into a self-induced light trance state to be more open to the spiritual forces I feel around me.
Please understand that prana is not the breath itself nor the oxygen involved with breathing but the energy connected to the breath.
It is a connection to the energy of all living things as a universal life force. I have worked to train myself to seek the energy pathways necessary to reach a particular client's mind while asking for help from my guide and my subject's guide. I begin by opening my mind and asking for guidance. In this way I try to receive information and not send it. What I do send to my clients are messages of confidence and reassurance.
The key to being a good therapist is to listen. Another is allowing your client to first interpret their own metaphoric symbols based upon what they are experiencing before you engage in your own interpretations.
There is a delicate balance between listening and questioning. To know when to speak and when to be quiet is not easy to teach students. In LBL work one must learn when to gently assist a client in understanding a visualization after they have spent time analyzing what they are seeing themselves. This comes with training and practice, and along the way this exercise and your own creativity may enable you to become more intuitive.
