Today I discuss reincarnation. Could something that happened in a past life contribute to the issues that we have in this life? Could past life regression be the answer?
hi my lovelies today I'm gonna be discussing reincarnation with you reincarnation the word itself is Latin meaning entering the flesh again and what that means it's the belief that when our physical body dies our soul can then go and inhabit a new physical body so basically our consciousness our soul our spirit never dies and so not only when we pass on a spirit can inhabit another body chances are our soul has inhabited many bodies over there hundreds of years prior to now now it's not a new belief this has goes back all the way to ancient times ancient Egypt ancient Greeks Hinduism which is I believe one of the oldest religions they believe in reincarnation as well I didn't really grow up believing or not believing I was just I didn't know upon doing research on air a few kind of stories have released stood out to me and for me I kind of think yes it is definitely a possibility I say that because I can never be a hundred percent sure how do I know how does anyone know science cannot prove it but neither can science disprove it and what science does say is energy never dies so if that is the case I can't see how reincarnation isn't possible now when I was kind of looking into it first of all I read a book by doctor aleksander I mentioned it to you before called proof of heaven and he was a neurosurgeon and basically for years and years working on people's brains and doing surgery on them plenty of his clients along the way had near-death experiences or NDEs and he didn't ever believe them because as a scientist and as a brain scientist he kind of thought consciousness is in the brain if the brain is dead unconscious not working it's not possible for it to go on then you can't have an experience until he fell into a coma and he was told that no he was told his family were told there was a very small percentage that he would live and if he did live he would be in a vegetative state because his brain function was nil but he had a near-death experience and so that's what it's about in the book now this is a doctor like a professional he was well known in the field of Neurology he had everything to lose by disclosing the story but it completely changed his view on things and so that really found her like fascinated me obviously a near-death experience isn't the same as reincarnation having past life but what it does say is that the soul or consciousness is separate to our physical body it's separate from our brain and that's the same with reincarnation like our soul can go on when I started researching it I was reading a lot about dr. Ian Stevenson he was a head professor of psychiatry at the University of Virginia Medical School basically and he spent most of his career studying reincarnation and there he actually had over 3,000 pieces of evidence that said pointed to reincarnation being real what I really liked about his methods was he didn't just go into where I don't think he ever actually stated that he believed in reincarnation even if he studied it he would go in really picking apart everything like trying to disprove it and it was only the cases that he had no answers for that he would then say okay that is evidence of reincarnation he founded the division of the personality studies at the University of Virginia and I wrote it down because he said he focused on examining children who had memories of the past life near-death experiences apparitions out-of-body experiences and visions that people had on their deathbed and he actually I wrote data he actually called reincarnation the survival of personality after death and he kind of believed that by looking at past lives genetics environment it would then help professionals like understand things such as phobias personality traits in people that um that couldn't really be explained of any other way so it really fascinated me I'm not going to go into all the stories with you because all we have to do is Google air and look up like past life stories of children and you can even type in doctor Ian Stevenson and there's so much information out there and some of these stories are literally like wow so if we have like if there is such a thing as reincarnation what about regression past life regression because people claim that they can be regressed to a past life basically they will go to a special therapist that deals with this who can put them in this like hypnotized state it's not the same kind of state as like hypnotizing them so they've got power and can make them do things it's I'm just putting them to this very relaxed state where they can go into their subconscious mind now I've talked about this if the conscious mind with you before and just how much stuff's in there but it's at a subconscious level and we just don't access it so that's what this therapists a therapist regression Ultherapy will do is put you into this state so you can go back and they there's lots of reasons someone might go to a therapist like this it might be because you're suffering with your mental health for example like if it was me I often question like why why did I have BPD like compared to say like I ticked all nine traits and there are other people out there that have far worse like backgrounds and histories and grew up in a follow environment that I did there are also half BPD so I did start questioning like could this be something from the past life that has carried over I mentioned about my eating like I suffered with bulimia from the age of 16 but as far back as I can remember I had issues with food I just couldn't stop eating like just couldn't stop it was ridiculous I was talking to my mum the other day when I used to go over to Ireland to see my dad I would literally buy a big bag of twelve bags of crisps and I would eat all of them I need a tub of ice cream not like oh not to eat the whole tub and say nothing was in moderation so I do question could this have been something like maybe I died of starvation maybe I was really really poor and I just didn't have any food in a past life and so that's kind of carried over and so what are my views on regression do I believe it is possible and again like with anything I talk about in this series I don't have the answers I can tell you what I know what I think but that is not to say I am right at all I could be so way off the market's unreal but I kind of just want to open your mind up to questions and things so with regression I do believe that with regression we can access our subconscious mind I personally knew a girl who liked me suffered with bulimia for years and years and years and she was I think 40-something when she went to see a therapist to regress her and she got regressed and they took her back to her childhood in this life and she remembered like when she was a young young girl being locked under the stairs with rats and stuff and it was really bizarre because she had this memory come flooding back and the bulimia just went away it was like once she kind of realized what trauma she'd gone through she then it just stopped I do know from my my own experience that our mind has a very good way of blocking out memories and I hadn't experienced this where I'd completely blocked a memory of something that happened with an ex-boyfriend back when I was 14 and it was a really horrific experience I really really wasn't well at the time and he basically abused his power over me and I was young and I didn't remember this for years just had no room like recollection and I can remember driving the car one day and all of a sudden it just flooded me I don't know what triggered it but the memory came back and I had to pull the car over I feel my mom so I know that at a subconscious level we can hold information that we just can't access but it's there do I think a subconscious level we can hold memories from a past life I don't know I really don't know I know that people claim they have been regressed and there have been cases there was a case of this woman and her story was so amazing that they bought book out on it and everything and it wasn't till years later that like an investigator looked into her story and basically picked her part and what she'd done her whole stuff like past life was actually based on characters of like neighbors that she'd met when she was like two and three years old their name and stuff and so when I hear stuff like that I can see like our imagination is amazing we can create amazing things in a head is it actually a past life regression that we're remembering I don't know with young children having said that when I read about these young children that have been regress I'm not regressed they remember they just they're very very young and they have memories then it's obvious to me yes those memories can be carried over because how can these children know this information so do believe it is there so I suppose if it's there as a child and we forget it as we grow up it's perfectly possible that that information can be there as subconscious level that we're just not accessing it so would I recommend past life regression like I mentioned the lady that I knew who got regress to me completely cured her of bulimia basically those of you watch my channel a lot of you have suffered with borderline personality disorder that's annex like we've got really extremely intense intense emotions for that reason I would always say go very carefully I personally don't think it would do me any good to get regressed I think it could trigger really strong emotion I I kind of think we carry enough baggage in this life like with relationships and stuff that we don't need it from the past life as well I kind of think imagine you regressed and in a past life the person you're going out with now was also in your past life but maybe they were a different character maybe they're your partner in this life in your last life they were your brother or your mom or something and you see how badly they treated you they really they might have kept you as a slave they might have beaten you they're really awful and then you come back to this life well we can then just forget will we then start treating that person differently and holding stuff against them because in the past life they were so awful to us because they they have no recollection of it now we're in this life well all of a sudden we've gone back and we've seen a whole different side of them and so I do think it can open a can of worms I believe that like like I said there's so much that we just don't know that we just don't understand I think just going up under hypnosis itself to go back puts a puts us in quite a vulnerable position so I would always be very wary and like I said particularly if you have borderline personality disorder this is not something that should be taken lightly you would if you you were like adamant that this is something you want to do that's your choice but look for a licensed professional who has experienced maybe has experience of regressing someone with BPD specifically I certainly would not advise you on advise you against going online and looking up certain meditations to regress yourself because I've seen those online and don't get me wrong I've been tempted but I also know this could be extremely dangerous maybe there's a reason we're not supposed to remember this stuff maybe there's an actual reason for it and with past lives and reincarnation comes the whole thing of karma always karma and karma is basically cause and effect and we see it as quite a bad thing karmic so if someone does us father like karma will get you home yeah and it is basically saying if actions for every action there is a consequence so if you do something bad at some point you will have bad come back to you but if you do good at some point good will come back to you I think it's actually a lot more complex than that and when we think a karma we can so easily just think just in this lifetime like so for boyfriend cheated welcome will come and the thing is here's the thing I've seen this in action myself and I'm like karma will get them and then something happens to them is that karma and I think if we believe in past lives then we might do something now that actually might never affect us we might go through this life fine but it might in another life and I for me I think of karma as the universe basically teaching us lessons my next video I'm going to talk about our sole purpose what is our sole purpose how do we discover our sole purpose and I think our souls we are here for a reason and I believe we are here to learn certain lessons because life can seem really unfair like you look around and there are children that are dying in the world of starvation there are people that are sold into the sex trade you hear about people being kidnapped and used to slaves like nowadays so we are not equal we are not all born equal there are people that born into a lot of money and there are people that have nothing and might be dumped on a doorstep somewhere so I kind of think the reason for that is we all have lessons to learn and just because this is the kind of life we living now it doesn't mean we didn't live a life like someone else in a different life what I'm trying to explain what I kind of mean by the half I think sometimes if we live our life and we do not learn the lessons we need to live then in the next life maybe our life will be very very similar so again we have a chance to learn those lessons and I think that's why it's important for us to learn what is our sole purpose why are we here if you're someone that doesn't believe in reincarnation doesn't leave in past lives a regression or Karma that's cool that's absolutely fine but I think all of us want to think what's her purpose why are we here why have we been through what we've been through so you don't have to believe in reincarnation to ask those kind of questions but like I said I'm gonna talk about sole purpose in the video next week so I think I'll leave that there and leave it to you to ask your own questions and do your own research if it fascinates you like I said there was dr. Ian Stevenson there was dr. Jim Tucker I believe he took over from dr. evil Ian Stevenson and he himself has worked with thousands and thousands of children who remember their past life so he's someone else you can look into I believe both these men had books out as well so yeah I'm gonna leave that there have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you next week [Music]
