A woman came to me with chronic back pain, for which no doctors could find the cause or cure. She had been to many doctors for this pain, but prescription "pain killer" drugs did not reduce the pain! She desperately needed to get some relief and wanted to try a Past Life Regression. She wanted to see if she could find any connection between her back pain and an event in her past. Turns out there surly was a cause of her pain in a past life death that was sudden and confusing.
She said she believed in reincarnation and felt that likely the pain was from a past life. [NOTE: This is a common statement made by clients. Of course, it is true that she believed the problem might be from a past life because her subconscious mind has been stuck in the problem for a long time!]
The relaxation induction went quickly, and I guided her to, "Go back to the source experience, which is the true cause of your back pain." After a few deep breaths, she said, "I'm in a rocking chair, and I'm knitting in front of the fireplace in a log cabin. It is not this lifetime; it's a past life."
After she responded to my questions about what was happening, she suddenly burst out, "Oh! The fire popped and blew cinders out into the room. The floor is catching fire! I'm backing out the door as the floor starts to burn!"
She then became confused and could not describe exactly what happened. However, she was out of her physical body in that scene, and from a short distance away she was watching a bear maul her body and kill her. It was evident to me that her soul/spirit had instantly left her physical body when the bear attacked her in the cabin doorway. It appeared that the rapid departure of her soul/spirit from her body brought with it the pain of the first bear claw in her back.
I gave her instructions to be only in her spirit observing the event, and to go slowly through the sequence of events to understand what really happened. With a little of my help, she sorted out what had happened there at the cabin door as her body was mauled by the bear, and this eliminated the confusion she had retained from the traumatic event.
Apparently a bear was outside at the very same moment that she was backing out the door. The startled bear reacted and clawed her in the back as she came through the door backward. At that instant, during her terror and sudden searing pain in her back, her soul/spirit left her body, and the bear continued to maul her body. The pain of the first claw in her back became a part of her on-going spirit after she left her body.
I instructed her to let her soul/spirit watch the remainder of the bear attack with detachment. From a short distance away, she observed that her spirit did survive and did safely reincarnated later into her present physical body. But unfortunately, her back pain from the past life remained in the present body.
I helped her to understand the difference in her past life physical body experience and her spirit's experience. It took a few minutes to sort out the details and understand the sequence of steps for her spirit to leave her physical body. The main pain reduction benefit came from understanding that the pain was in the past life body, did not belong in the spirit, and it should not be in the current physical body.
This client achieved a complete removal of the pain in her back during this one PLR session! She reported to me later that the pain never returned either.(Jump to Nav Menu)
