Who are You?
Clients come to me for Past Life Regressions for a multitude of reasons. These may include curiosity, unexplained phobias, compulsive behaviour and a sense of belonging elsewhere.
They seek to understand the past as a way of interpreting, and understanding, the present. PLR can be a very effective way of achieving that. Yet how well do we understand ourselves in the here and now?
Who are we? We may think we know ourselves, but many spend much time throughout their lives trying to find themselves.
As we pass others in the street, without even talking to them, those people form a sense of what and who we are. Are we the same at work as we are at home? Even as adults are we the same with our parents as we are with our children?
It becomes apparent that there are thousands of “yous”, you to different people, in different situations, to ourselves. Does “you” in a definite sense exist at all? The person who you think of as you. is merely a construct. We may have a clear idea of what we are to ourselves, but have little idea of what we are to others.
My partner Gary took his young family to a posh Sunday lunch many years ago including a precocious five-year- old Stephen. Stephen was warned that he had to be on his best behaviour in these relatively august and different surroundings, particularly the waiting staff.
Fortunately, the meal passed without incident. When they had cleared the restaurant, Gary congratulated Stephen on his behaviour, who smiled, and replied “the waitresses didn’t know that I am naughty really…”
Western mantras include “be yourself” and “be true to yourself”. But which self are we being true to?
One of the big advantages of past life regression is that they look at a completed life, an entity. In the here and now we are only seeing a distorted snapshot, an incomplete film, a book that has not been completed.
If you would like to pursue this, why not have a past life regression with me or attend one of my Retreats at Rosliston National Forest near Burtonupon Trent?
