This is a really big question you know…
Because under Buddhism and Hinduism, karma exists
And karma is why they believe in past lives and reincarnation
Karma by the way, is not just “bad” karma
There is “good” karma too 🙂
Anyway that’s a completely different ball game already hahaha
Now the Catholics, Christians and Muslims generally don’t believe in past lives
Although the Catholics and Christians do believe in reincarnation in one way or another
Just not the soul in a new body
Anyone can share whether Muslims share the same view?
And yes, some people here and there might have the views regarding past lives to be not of their religion
Example a Buddhist might not believe in past lives while a Catholic might believe in past lives
Let’s not go there right now
The real question is, do past lives exist?
Interestingly enough, there is some evidence of past lives and reincarnation being real
And it’s not because of past life hypnosis hahahah
There are case studies of children who know of stuff that they should not know
Or even more interestingly, children who remember their previous life details, how they died and even led people to where they are buried!
But I get where you are coming from, the scientific person you are
Are these stories real?
I have no idea to be honest *shrug*
Now as a Catholic and a hypnotist, I do not let my religion come into my treating my clients
In fact, I am a very open person 🙂
Now what do I mean by this statement? (The one before me being open haha)
Basically, if my clients are experiencing something hypnotic and they tell me they think it is a past life, then I believe them and say it’s a past life
If they say it’s just their imagination, well alright, it’s their imagination
You might be wondering, why do I do this?
If I did a past life hypnosis, isn’t it a past life?
Well not exactly, at least not to me anyway
It may be possible the person is experiencing a real past life experience, but it may also be possible the person is experiencing something else
Let me explain something interesting about the unconscious mind
The unconscious mind will construct its problems into symbols
Partly because it stores information as symbols and partly because it’s easier to manage
Now what does this mean?
This mean it may be possible that for a particular problem, the unconscious mind might construct the issue into something that looks like a past life
Because the symbol, environment, experience does not seem like it is within the life you are experiencing now
I will be honest, it may be possible
It is also possible that the past life the client is experiencing is completely 100% real
“Hold on a second McKing! You are confusing me!”
Well, I might be, but hear me out first
I have both perspectives because the client can take either or
The client who believes it is an actual past life and the client who doesn’t believe in past lives
Yet, whichever they think it is, it can still resolve the issue
Fascinating isn’t it?
There is one more thing I want to point out, again with our imagination
In USA, past life hypnosis on females end up many of them being Cleopatra
Any idea why is this so?
Well, I think it’s because the females there who want to know their past lives and perhaps adore Cleopatra in one way or another, end up imagining the whole experience as their truth
The mind is really weird sometimes eh?
And by the way, this is also one reason why I don’t do past life hypnosis for curiosity sake lol
The other reason I don’t do past life hypnosis for curiosity sake is because we might open a can of worms and the client might decide not to come back to me to properly resolve it
That’s not so good for karma ain’t it?
To clarify, I do do past life regression therapy for therapeutic purposes
So!! What do you think?
Are past lives real? Comment below! 😀
