Last century: in the 1980’s and early 1990’s my friends and myself were fascinated by past lives.
The first past life regression that I experienced was at a psychic group at Kent Town SA. (I think it was 1980)
Instead of a guided meditation the man running this group took us back to our very last life.
Only four of us achieved this and everyone else complained that it was supposed to be a meditation.
I wrote mine down in an exercise book as soon as I got home. I kept this book for years but it disappeared last century when my 2nd husband moved out. Pity!
I still remember much of the information that I got in this regression:
I was an American Marine in Borneo: either during or just after the Second World War.
At the time I had no idea the war went to Borneo. I checked all the information that I could in the library. I also didn’t like the “Yanks” back then so had no desire to be one. I have since visited the USA and know how friendly and welcoming Americans are.
I died when the b12 I was in ( I was the gunner; not the pilot) was shot down. This sensation of spinning downwards to my death was brought back to me in this present incarnation when a pilot friend took me up in a Victor (two seater aeroplane) cut the motors and spun the plane downwards without warning me. (He was trying to show off.)
I was 19, male and the middle child of three boys. My name was Harold. I saw my home but not my parents.
As I was born this life in February 1949 I would have come straight back after I died. But knowing that I do not understand the nature of reality or time anything is possible.
I have done numerous past life regression. I am only sharing a few.
When a friend of mine took me back to a past life(in the early eighties this time space). I was walking toward a well in a cobblestone courtyard. (Probably the Middle Ages.) As soon as I appeared everyone else scattered. Immediately I came back to waking reality and couldn’t stop laughing. I said “I don’t know who I was but they didn’t like me.” (I may have been a leper?)
A Reiki master (not so common back then) took me to a past life. I was an English aristocrat in India. What I remember the most about this person who was supposedly me was the way he thought. He was “so far up himself his feet stuck out!” Anyone who wasn’t English upper class was worthless and irrelevant. I said to the Reiki master “I don’t think like this!?”
He was mountain climbing and someone slipped. The Reiki master asked me to “ask” who this was in my present life and it was my daughter.
This aristocrat also raped one of the peasant women.
I experienced another past life when I did an exchange of service for someone. This someone balanced my chakras in exchange for a “reading”
When we got to my solar plexus chakra I told him that the problem was a past life. He told me to go there!
This was the most lucid past life I had ever experienced.
I was black; very tall and performing human sacrifices in Egypt. People that I told the story to have told me that they didn’t have human sacrifices in Egypt and my reply was/is “Yes they did! I was there!”
The sword that I used look something like a Turkish sword but not quite the same.
I killed myself with the sword in this Egyptian life because I hated what I did.
Most of the past lives I have regressed to have been male: but I was aparently a courtesan in France: When I became too old for this lifestyle I became a nun.
I was also an Australian Aboriginal elder (female) – before white man came here. A very wise and a powerful healer.
In 1991 a male friend regressed me and “tuned in”. I saw my self wearing a white skull cap and said I was a cardinal. My friend reminded me that cardinals wear red. The pope wears white. I was told my name but it was my given name, not the one I chose as pope. I checked encyclopaedias but couldn’t find me: And because I didn’t write the regression down I have since forgotten the name. Would have been good to have the internet and Google back then.
I have a book by Peter Ramster called: “A Search for Reincarnation.” I do not know if it is still in print. Peter Ramster is a psychologist who regressed some of his clients to find the cause of a problem and on several occasions they went to another life: From there he deliberately regressed people to past lives: An interesting read.
