First Chapter

Chapter One
Tapping into the Cosmic Memories

It has been about fifteen years since my patients, under hypnosis, began to recall current and past life traumas, possession by human and dark spirits, and soul fragmentation and soul loss as the source of their emotional, mental, and physical symptoms. They also started to remember some amazing spiritual information, such as who we are, where we come from, why we are here, and what happens to us when we die. Many of my patients even regressed back to the time when they were one with God and there was nothing else, only God. No planets, no individual souls, and no creation whatsoever. Some of my patients regressed back to the time of the creation of their souls, and found it to be the source of their feelings of depression, separation anxiety, feelings of rejection, fears, and inferiority. This is exactly how they felt when their souls were created by God and separated from Him.

My patients also found it to be very profound and therapeutic to remember firsthand that they came from God and are a part of Him. While one with God, they described feeling totally content and peaceful, and had no negative feelings. I began to wonder: if everything was good and peaceful before creation, why did God decide to create, and why we are going through this revolving door of birth and death cycles, as my patients have claimed under hypnosis. Did God also create Satan and his demons, and if yes, why? What is the purpose of all this pain and suffering we go through while on Earth?

Throughout my first book, Remarkable Healings, and also in this book, most of the information I received was not only through my hypnotized patients but also through so-called "normal" people, who recalled similar information under hypnosis. Because of our human frailty, every human being is open for spirit entry at one or more times in their lives. So, I also worked with many people who did not have any acute symptoms but who wanted to be free of all the attached spirits within them, to retrieve all their missing soul parts, and to be fully integrated. After cleansing and healing, they can fulfill their purposes without much dark influence.

As I began to ask different questions to people under hypnosis, they were able to receive answers and understanding about various issues as well as a lot of higher spiritual knowledge. Any information and understanding we wanted was given to us by the heavenly beings. Wisdom that was previously given to only a few selected prophets is now given to anybody who desires it and is ready to receive it. According to heavenly beings, much of the information in this book has not been revealed before because we humans were not ready to receive it. But now it is time for us to know and understand this information, for our spiritual growth.

Hypnosis: Looking beneath the Surface, the Subconscious Mind

In my first book, Remarkable Healings, I have described hypnosis and other therapeutic techniques in detail. But since everybody may not be familiar with my first book, I will explain hypnosis and how it works in therapy. The general public has many misconceptions and fears about hypnosis based on what they understand from television, movies, and stage hypnosis. For people to benefit from the treatment, we need to dispel the misconceptions about hypnosis. It is important for people to understand what hypnosis is and what it is not, so they can enter into therapy free from fear and with the correct expectations.

Hypnosis is a state of focused concentration where we selectively block out peripheral awareness. To understand hypnosis and how it works, we need to understand our conscious and subconscious mind. The conscious mind is the thinking, reasoning, and problem-solving part of our mind, also known as the left brain. It is the part of our mind that deals with day-to-day functioning. It is the normal state of our awareness. The subconscious mind functions at a deeper level than our conscious mind and is known as the right brain. It deals with memories, intuition, and knowledge.

Normally, our conscious mind, or left brain, is cluttered with our day-to-day thoughts and problems. It is busy and constantly aware of everything that is happening around it. In this state, we cannot bypass the conscious mind and get in touch with our subconscious mind to give suggestions or retrieve information.

The goal of hypnosis is to set aside our constantly chattering conscious mind. One way to do this is to guide people to focus on their breathing and to relax different parts of their bodies. When the conscious mind is calm and quiet and not preoccupied by unnecessary thoughts, it is easy to bypass it and get in touch with the subconscious mind. Here the conscious mind is not asleep or unconscious, but it acts as a passive observer. It is aware of what is happening during a session, but it does not interfere with its doubts, constant analysis, and interpretations.

We achieve a similar state of focused concentration daily, normally and naturally, when we are absorbed in reading a book, watching a movie, listening to music, or driving on a highway (highway hypnosis) when we lose track of time. Similarly, while daydreaming, we are focusing on a person, place, or an event and are not concerned about our surroundings, nor are we distracted by the events near us. In these cases, our concentration is focused on whatever we are doing, and we are not asleep or unconscious. Other times during which we are in a state of deep hypnosis include the moments just before we fall asleep and at the beginning stage of waking up in the morning.

Similarly, when we are focusing on our emotional, mental, and physical problems, we are in a state of hypnosis. Most of the time when patients come to my office, they are suffering with intense emotions, such as anger, fear, or sadness or physical sensations, such as pain, numbness, palpitations, or difficulty breathing, or they use certain words over and over to describe their problems. In these cases, I usually ask them to focus on their emotional, mental, or physical feelings or thoughts and let those feelings and thoughts take them back to another time, to the source of the problems when they felt the same way. This can instantly bridge a present-time conflict to a conflict in the past, either in the current life or in a past life. By recalling, reliving, and resolving the trauma, they are often freed of their problems. This is called "bridge technique."

Thus we can understand that during hypnosis, people are not asleep or unconscious. They are in a state of focused concentration in which they are not aware of or paying attention to what is happening around them. Every hypnosis is a self-hypnosis, just like the different examples of daily hypnosis described above. We go in and out of the state of hypnosis several times every day without any formal induction. In therapy, a therapist only acts as a guide in assisting the patient, who controls the level of the trance and what is being revealed. The patients cannot act against their ethical or moral codes, and they can come out from under hypnosis any time they desire.

Hypnosis itself is not a therapy. It is only a tool that can be used in therapy. It allows therapists to give positive suggestions to help the patient, as in the directive approach in therapy. But patients are free to accept or reject any suggestions they choose, and even at the deepest level of trance, they will not accept any suggestions that are against their morals and ethics. In therapy, I usually make a relaxation tape for my patients to use at home with positive suggestions to suit their needs. It usually works well and people feel better, but it is just a symptomatic treatment. What a tranquilizer, a sleeping pill, or a pain pill can do, a relaxation tape with positive suggestions can also achieve in a motivated person. These pills do not cure the problems and neither does the tape. Most posthypnotic suggestions last only for a few hours to a few days.

In the nondirective approach, instead of giving suggestions under hypnosis, the reasons for the problems are explored by asking the patient questions. Under hypnosis, I usually ask patients to focus on their symptoms and to allow those feelings to take them back to another time, to the source of the problem. By getting in touch with their subconscious minds, patients not only can find the reasons for their problems, but they can also find the solutions and even healing. After recalling, reliving, and resolving the emotional, mental, and physical residue of the traumatic events, patients can be free of their symptoms without any medication or long-term traditional talk therapy.

    This book is right up there with Many Lives, Many Masters. Very detailed information from her hypnotized patients. I loved this book and recommend it to many of my friends. If you're interested in learning more about past life regression therapy, this book is for you!

    This book is the best I have read on this topic so far - What is our purpose in our life on Earth, and how does the soul grow? What happens to the soul in heaven, in between incarnations? How did it all start? This book affirms things I have long suspected - through the reports of souls under hypnosis. This book is a good stepping stone in spiritual growth, and getting in touch with your soul plan for this lifetime.
