A young man in his 20's came to me for a hypnosis session to see if he could recall anything about his birth mother and why she put him up for adoption. He was very sorry that she put him up for adoption at age 3 and felt like there was something wrong with him that made her do that.
In this case, he went quickly to early childhood in this life when he was riding in a car with his birth mother. She parked outside a building and entered with him. In the hallway, she kneeled down and hugged him, and while crying, told him how sad she was to have to give him up for adoption because she was very ill and dying.
She told him repeatedly how much she loved him and how sorry she was for being unable to care for him. The young man spent several minutes repeatedly going over those precious moments and her words with tears streaming down his face. (Mine too!)
After he was out of the light trance state later, he said prior to this Past Life Regression he was totally unaware of his mother's illness and death. This scene from the past was totally new to him. Up to that time he had felt unloved and guilty about being put up for adoption, likely because there was something wrong with him.
About a week after the session, while I was on my way to work I saw him on the opposite side of the street. He rushed over to me and said, "I can't stop smiling! She really loved me!"
[NOTE: I allow for the possibility of reincarnation and source of the problem being in a past life, but I do not direct the client to a past life. We only go to the "source experience", wherever and whenever that was. In this case the problem was in the present life. It seems probable that this client had past lives where there were issues of abandonment and self-love. My guess comes from my working with many other clients where we explored farther.]
