Past Lives Therapy is based on the premise that childhood traumas or previous lives underlay current mental, physical and emotional problems. Using hypnosis or other states of altered consciousness, this therapy explores past life experiences and images within the unconscious and conscious parts of ourselves, in a manner similar to analyzing our dreams. Recalling and examining these lives or traumas can stimulate release from inner restrictions and fears, reveal more constructive, creative potential that is available to us, establish a sense of deep connection to more of our being and provide an understanding of the sensation and personal meaning of the transitions in our life cycles.
