Thanks for Your Help!

Thanks for Your Help!

I would very much like to thank my readers for their help last weekend with the title for my new book. Over sixty people responded to my plea for help, which had a very short deadline. A great response.

For me, it was a most enlightening exercise and helped shape the final choice made by the publishers.

I found it interesting that over half of those that responded preferred one title of the eight presented. It was, Dark to Light: The purpose of Challenging Lives. It received thirty-five votes. Second place received eight votes and was The Soul’s Dilemma: How Challenging Past Lives Shape Our Future. Third was Shadow Past Lives: How Souls Grow, with seven votesThe other nine votes were evenly spread across the other five titles. (See previous post for details). A few respondents didn’t like any of the presented titles and came up with other suggestions.

Generally most people liked a hopeful title, one that was to the point and that reflected the content of the book. About a third perferred a title that wasn’t too long or wordy.

The responses and informative comments inspired me to come up with a few more titles, which I also submitted to the Publisher, Llewellyn Worldwide.

The publisher gave careful consideration to all factors and suggestions I put forward, then decided on a title. It is:

Lost Soul, Wise Soul: How Challenging Past Lives Shape Our Future. 

I am very happy with this title as it expresses the book’s subject matter. The main theme is our soul journey through challenging lifetimes that engender so much disillusionment, we cut off from Source.  Feeling alone, we become lost, experiencing some harrowing lives. A pivotal life initiates an increased level of awareness and we begin our struggle back to the Light. We learn much through this sacred journey which rewards us with a wellspring of wisdom.

I promised to put all those who responded to my call for help into a draw for five copies of the new book, Lost Soul. Wise Soul, How Challenging Past Lives Shape Our Future.

I used a random generator to draw out the five winners. They are Elizabeth, Gloria, Kara, Kylie and Lydia. Each will receive a copy of the book once it is published.

I will be letting you know exactly when the book will be launched and when it is available for pre-order.

Thank you, Dear Readers, for your support.

Help Please!

I would love to have your help and quickly with a impeding decision I need to make on Monday.

I have written a book which is based on regressions I have done with clients. In these past lives, souls were either lost, victims or perpetrators.

Using many cases in the book, I trace the journey souls take into a series of dark lives and their emergence into light. This includes their journey into separation and isolation, perpetration and/or victimization, a powerful awakening and turnaround with a struggle back into reconnection and emergence into light.

The book also explains why souls become lost and separated and how they are rescued and redeemed. It covers the arc of our soul journey on Earth from our first incarnation through many lives of seeking and learning until we attain balance, compassion and wisdom.

Llewellyn, my publisher has asked me to suggest my preferred titles (See below) almost immediately. Thus, I am asking for your ideas and views on the following possibilities by 9 am this Monday morning the 1st of February.

What book title would attract you?  What title would propel you to pick up the book and read the back cover? Please write a sentence or two on why that title (or subtitle) appealed to you and note any titles that repelled you. Please feel free to make any suggestions, including mixing up the titles and subtitles and other possible titles or subtitles. Then email your thoughts to me at Karen@LifeBetweenLivesRegression.com.au

Once you respond, your name will go into a draw to win one of five copies of my new book. The winners will be notified soon and then can expect to receive the book later this year as soon as it is released.

Here are the suggested titles: (Note you can copy them into an email to me and make comments in red text). Please do so by 9 am Monday morning the 1st of February to be eligible for the draw.

Getting What You Need

Getting What You Need

The regressions I do are guided, a little by me, but mostly from those beings who are dedicated to the highest good of the client and the highest good of all.

The guidance comes to the clients through their imagination in the form of words, thoughts, ideas, images, feelings or impressions, which is commonly called “intuition.” My only promise for a regression is that each client will get what he or she needs. Occasionally, what some clients receive is very different to what they expected.

During one recent week, I had two clients who did not get what they expected from their regressions. Their names are Lance and Ruth. Although their regressions were very different, the message each received was much the same.

After many years working happily as a tradesman, Lance, 50, was keen to move into a different state to live a simple life in nature. He planned to build a small structure on property near a close friend where he could fish and grow food.

He had waited months to see me and, in the meantime, his pressing issues had resolved. He had left the relationship which concerned him and felt much happier as a consequence. Still, he wanted to experience a past life and a life between lives regression.

Lance had an unusual quality, he had a powerful, constant love for God. During the regression, whenever he quietly focussed on this love, tears of joy streamed down his face. He clearly remembered having these feelings at age four and they had been with him ever since.

I was in a place [church] where everyone was honouring God but I could see that they were not honouring that and didn’t know what they were doing. Their love for God was not manifesting in a genuine way. Always, that has been a deep grief for me. It has caused me to shut down on so many levels because there is no place for that love. It makes me so lonely.

I suggested Lance access a past life, but the only image that came was one he’d seen before.

I see a village in a clearing with six huts made of straw. A group of families live there who have a deep loving connection between them all. I sense a strong contrast with my current life family. A deep overwhelming love for God was easy there in that past life. We knew each other and everything was easy. There was harmony.

Lance could not elaborate on this image. His strongest impression was the feeling of connection between these people. I could see he was experiencing it deeply. Eventually, he explained that the feeling between the members of the group is the same feeling he has of loving God.

I deepened Lance’s trance but nothing more was coming to him so I decided to ask the questions he’d prepared for the session, suggesting he respond with the first thought, idea, image or impression that came to his mind.

Lance did this very well, receiving answers to all his questions. But he felt somewhat dissatisfied. “I already knew these answers,” he said.

Ruth was similar to Lance in that she had waited several months for her appointment and had resolved her situation since.

When I made the appointment, I was traumatised. I’d met this guy and didn’t know what to do.

Although she enjoyed spending time with this man, he had many health problems. After putting up with a demanding ex-husband and bringing up three children alone, she did not want to sign up to caring for an ill man. After thinking it through carefully, she’d decided she could enjoy his company as a friend without taking on any responsibility for his health.

Still, she was expecting to experience a past life and life between lives regression.

Ruth has travelled much since her children reached adulthood and a lot of it has been alone.

I have felt guidance. At one stage I flew on my own to a South American city knowing no one or what I would do when I got there. I would not let the any fear in. Travelling I have had these memories of past lives come back. I can sit alone on the bus and get the feelings.

Ruth recalled an example of her connection to her past lives.

In the Copan ruins in Central America. I felt something as soon as I walked in the door. I wanted to lie down on the ground. We were waiting for the guide. In that ancient time, women were killed to be with their dead husbands. After the tour, I sat with my back against the ruins. I realised that, in that past life, I and others were taught how to leave our bodies and return before we died. These ancient people actually believed that the life on Earth was of second importance to their spiritual life. The reason I felt this urge to lie of the ground came back to me. In the past life, I had decided to be buried alive so I could leave my body when I wanted. Leaning back on the ruins, I felt great joy in knowing that we, as those ancient people, knew about our spiritual life.

Ruth had remembered many of her past lives, but none were forthcoming during the regression. I decided to do the same thing I had done with Lance and ask the questions she had prepared. She received answers, but nothing much that was new to her. However, one answer was telling after I asked what her purpose was this life.

To have faith in myself.

Her guides laughed when she wondered about already knowing what she was receiving.

Lance and Ruth received the same message. Trust yourself. They had resolved their problems and were very capable of continuing to do so. They had looked for validation outside of themselves, thus coming to see me, but they didn’t need to do that anymore. They had the answers already, within. They just had to ask and then trust, knowing the answers are there and everything that is happening is doing so for a reason.

I cancelled their second regressions. They knew, and I knew, it wasn’t needed. Although they didn’t get the experience they expected, they were both happy. They each left with renewed faith in themselves and in their intuition, knowing that they had received exactly what they needed.

Discovering the Spirit World with Michael Newton

Discovering the Spirit World with Michael Newton

Michael Newton

Humans have known about the existence of spirits and the spirit world for tens of thousands of years of human existence, if not longer. Each tribe or culture has created their own interpretation of non-physical worlds from which our material Earth sprung.

These spiritual beliefs form the foundation of cultures. For example, the indigenous people of Australia have ancestral stories that came from the Dreamtime, the time when Ancestors created life and formations of the lands. The art, stories, ceremonies and song, passed down the generations, guide their survival physically, emotionally and spiritually.

In Western culture, the Bible formed the foundation of beliefs in an afterlife. Then came the renaissance, which eventually challenged the biblical ideas of heaven and hell, replacing them, to various degrees, with materialistic interpretations.

However, the evolution of Western culture has not stopped. It continues. In the last century, New Age beliefs have expanded from individuals becoming aware of non-physical worlds during Near Death Experiences, After Death communication, remembering past lives and other incidents that have no satisfactory scientific explanation. Some people write books about non-physical phenomena and readers have a growing body of literature to explore.

I am one of those who had an eye opening experience many years ago, but I am not alone. Michael Newton also described a similar experience well before I stumbled upon a client unexpectedly accessing a past life. I described this experience in my book, Other Lives, Other Realms. Hypnosis practitioners are particularly at risk of discovering the potential existence of other lives and realms.

Recently I came upon a link to Michael recounting this experience provided by the Michael Newton Institute in its quarterly online magazine, Stories of the Afterlife. You can subscribe to the magazine here.  And the link to watch Michael is here. Both links are worthwhile and enlightening.

The Impact of Very Strict Fathers

The Impact of Very Strict Fathers

A few months ago, I wrote about absent fathers, Part 1 and Part 2. I was surprised at the comments I received, some by email. Some readers drew strength from the stories in those blogs.

No doubt absent fathers strongly affect their sons and daughters. These children yearn for the attention of a caring dad.

Strict fathers also affect their children, but in a different way. These children soon learn to fear their fathers and try to avoid them. As they approach adulthood, they just want to escape to find safety and freedom.

 This was the case with Lily. Lily’s father emigrated from a country in Asia which was suffering significant turmoil at the time. Asian dads tend to be strict anyway, but we learned during the regression that most of his hardness came from a recent difficult past life. Lily had no memory of him ever being affectionate. In fact, she felt very afraid of him.

The only way dad knew how to discipline us was through verbal threats. I remember him telling me “If you say that again I will cut out your tongue.” Once I went to the store and talked to a boy. He saw me and said,” If you do that again I will break your legs so you cannot walk.”

Lily had a number of physical conditions that her doctors told her were from stress. She had suffered depression, but her main concern was her skin. Since she was a child, she had abrasions on her body, mainly on her arms and legs. They were not there at birth and when they did appear, they would come and go in different spots. She came for a regression hoping to gain some insight into this problem.

At the beginning of the regression, Lily lives a past life as a woman. She and her husband live together in a primitive cabin. Their relationship is loving.

I am at the window of the kitchen, seeing a man outside. It seems like I know him. I get a friendly feeling.  He is waving. I am not afraid. It actually makes me want to smile. I am married to him. We have been together for a good while. I feel happy and peaceful.

 I keep seeing things on the wall like pots, spatulars and measuring cups. I cook for the family. I have a sense of of connection and peace.

I make sure she anchors these positive feelings of being peaceful, happy and safe so she can access them whenever she wants.

Next she finds herself in a barren place surrounded by huge volcanos. She feels unsafe and scared. I suspect this represents her fear as a child. I ask for help and her guide appears.

The guide has light skin and light sky-blue eyes. She is wearing a robe with a hood over her head.I feel she is very friendly as she holds out her hand. Her name is Angela.

Angela, the guide, takes Lily her back to the cabin, suggesting she access the comforting feelings of being in the cabin whenever she feels afraid.

Soon she is back with the volcanos. She becomes aware of the volcanos being like her father. I wonder out loud how her father really felt about her.

My guide just reminded me of a dream I had of my dad. It was after he passed away. He came to me and was actually holding me. I was sobbing and crying. I’d never felt like that before.

I ask about herself as a girl, suggesting she find out what her younger self needs.

I see myself as a young girl with pigtails, of maybe three years old. I am getting down to her level so I can see her eye to eye. I see fear in her eyes.

I mention how brave this little girl has been.

For some reason, I just picked her up and flew off. She is enjoying flying. I am showing her that the world is bigger and not as scary as it seems. I am actually taking her to the Godfathers Pizza Place. Dad used to look after me when I was sick and bring me my medicine. He was the one who always picked me up when I was ill at school. I had stomach problems. Then he would take me somewhere to eat like McDonalds or the Godfather’s Pizza Place. We are there with him now. Those are good memories.

Lily and I laugh, thinking about eating fast food when ill.

It didn’t matter. It helped. He was a bit softer during those times. I enjoyed being with him then.

Angela now takes Lily to another scene.

I am at my wedding and dad is walking me down the aisle. I am showing my little girl how happy and proud he is. (Lily laughs). He raises his hand so seriously, saying “I do” when the minister asks who gives me away.

Another memory comes. At 27, I had a heart operation. As I was wheeled into the theatre, he touched my toe affectionally and held onto it. (Laughing.) He didn’t know what else to do.

I received an award. Only four girls in the whole school were chosen. He had a bouquet of roses for me. Since he died, I remember having a lot of dreams of him showing me affection.

Lily begins to cry a little. I know she was afraid to cry as a child. I suggest she let herself soften and cry because she doesn’t want to be like her dad—afraid to be vulnerable. After crying a little more she speaks.

Angela is smiling.

We ask Angela about the abrasions on Lily’s arms.

Angela is taking me to the ocean, and I see a sunset. The sun is red orange. The waves are gentle, and the sand is warm. I feel that she tells me that the sea, sand and sun would help with my skin.

Now Angela is rubbing my arms in a very soothing way and putting primrose oil on them. I have been using it before, but I didn’t think it was working. She tells me she guided me to it, and it takes time to work. I need to trust it will help.

Our skin is what separates us from others and the rest of the world. Skin problems are about separation, either wanting to be separated or not wanting to be. Lily’s abrasions appear on the outside of her arms and legs, never on the inside. From that I deduce she intends to push someone away rather than bring them close. She wants separation from her father’s fierce threats. Even though he had died a decade ago, she was still carrying the fear her younger self felt.

From the regression, Lily receives what she needed. Her guide, Angela, took a her through a beautiful healing process which showed her adult self and child self that, in spite of his harsh discipline, her father loved her.
