A Transpersonal Journey

A Transpersonal Journey

A transpersonal journey is different to a past life or life between lives regression in one significant way. Our focus in a transpersonal journey is on resolving the problems of the client and we do that by a process of investigation. The client needs to be ready and willing to face these issues and delve deep. We often utilise the emotions associated with the issue to gather relevant information.

The session involves the client’s guides who we call in and ask for help. The journey may involve a past life, a current life or even a visit to the life between lives, especially that area where spirits become stuck. At the beginning, we never know where we may go. We simply trust the shift will take place. To achieve the desired outcome the client needs to be open to exploring whatever situation is presented by the guides.

Even though every session is unique, here is a case which may give you a sense of a transpersonal journey. Paul came to see me in the hope he could sort out some issues.

Paul described having a pattern of depression which came upon him at least once a year. During the months before the day of his booked appointment with me, he had another of these debilitating episodes. He was so tired and anxious he lost fifteen kilograms. Fortunately, he had weened himself off his anti-depressants earlier in the year and was sufficiently aware during this period to clearly describe what had happened.

Paul was very busy in his self-employed business but one weekend took time off to engage in several physical activities. He did a three hour session of martial arts and a couple of hours of surfing. When he got home, he had some household activities to do before tackling the work he had to complete in his office. As he walked into his office, he realised how exhausted he was. He describes how he felt.

I knew I had overdone it and I started feeling anxious. When I feel like that it is a case of the damage has been done but, at the time, I felt overwhelmed.

As Paul described this memory, he accessed the same feelings he had at the time. You might notice how he changed tense.

Fearful energy comes up my spine and I go into flight or fight. I have tremors in the body, palpitations, short breaths, tense stomach. It feels like total dread.

I use these emotions to help us explore, so I ask him if he has felt like this before. He describes some earlier episodes in his current life before further detailing his cycle of distress.

The anxiety creates flight or fight. I can’t sleep and can’t eat. When all of that happens, there are senses in my head which make me feel disconnected because my thoughts are foggy. I have obtrusive thoughts.

I ask Paul to tell me the nature of these intrusive thoughts.

I remember the first time that I had this cycle. I couldn’t switch it off. I was in a stressful job and we had a new baby. I’d stopped taking antidepressants. I had a few anxiety attacks and I couldn’t work. When I was going through a burst of anxiety, I walked around the block trying to calm myself. I forced myself to eat dinner. I was light sensitive so the lights had to be turned down. We decided to watch something and we chose a dark psychological movie. I sat through it. The main character is investigating a disappearance on an island asylum. Near the end, (crying) he discovers the most dangerous patient is himself. He is a murderer.

We went to bed and I was laying there. I had fears of going crazy, that I might wake up in the morning suddenly discovering I am bad, like the psychopath.

Paul is terribly upset while relating this memory. He has the same symptoms as before. I wonder if this could be triggering some sort of past life with remnants bleeding into his current life.

I was scared as a little kid. Before I married, I was very self-destructive. Since having kids, the feeling of love for them is overwhelming. I am over-protective and afraid for them. I want them to grow up and know they are okay. But I want to enjoy them when they are little. It is a catch 22. I cannot enjoy my children because I am so afraid of something happening to them. I can’t watch TV. If I get something that triggers me, like a movie, I feel terrible dread. Then I think, I have gone too far!  

I suggest that this sense of “I have gone too far” is a trigger. Paul replies that he felt like that at the beginning of the recent weekend episode when he had done too much in one day.

I ask if we can keep exploring this sense of going too far.

Paul: I want to do it. I am just scared of being stuck in it and cannot get out.

Karen: Stuck in what way.

Paul: I see a dark tunnel and light at the end.

Karen: Focus on that.

Paul: I am really claustrophobic. 

Karen: What would you like to do? Unlock the claustrophobia or something else?

Paul: I’d like to meet my guide.

I know Paul is currently feeling afraid and stuck. To meet his guide, he will need to access a higher frequency.

Karen: Okay. First, we need to go to a safe, happy place. What is that for you?

Paul: Rainforest with a stream.

I give him a guided meditation of a rainforest and stream, and eventually ask what he is aware of.

Paul: Dark. My heartrate is fast.

Karen: What is that heart rate telling you about yourself at the moment? (long silence) What’s happening now?

 Paul: I feel like I am really deep and dark.

Karen: Is that a relaxed feeling?

Paul: Hmm, body really heavy.

Karen: Stay with that, perhaps that is what your body needs at the moment. (Long silence). Anything coming, Paul?

Paul: Lots of coloured lights in the darkness.

Karen: Could be healing lights. Anything you want to share you can. Otherwise I’ll just let you be for a while. (Another long silence).

Paul: What is my purpose?

Ask you guides and see what pops in.

Paul: Love.

Paul: How do I heal? Light

Karen: How would the light heal you?

Paul: Togetherness.

Karen: What does that mean?

Paul: Family. wisdom, chakra, twelve, heal. It is different now, a real tunnel feeling. I am moving. Bright lights are around me and they are shrinking almost like I am going backwards.

Karen: Go with that. That could be healing too.

Paul: I see a rat’s face.

Karen: What does that mean?

Paul: Time.

What is important about time in this context?

Paul: Time is everything.

K: What do you think about the tunnel and light at the end going backward?

Paul: Not sure.

Karen: Do you remember your fear of going too far and not being able to go back?

Paul: Yes.

Karen: I think the guides just showed you that you can.

Paul smiles.

Karen: Thinking about what we have done today, how do you feel.

Paul: It makes me happy. I am going to focus on self-love as that always makes me feel better. I think that I need to trust my intuition and meditate more. I am genuinely a good person. I know that. I deserve self-love.

Now I take Paul back to the weekend which started two months of anxiety and serious weight loss, including feelings of dread, fast heartrate and tremors earlier in the session. Now he reports feeling nothing. I also take him back to the disturbing movie which had caused him considerable distress. Again, his feelings are neutral.

He had lost all negative emotional charge, which had been previously associated with the scenarios.

You might wonder what happened to gain such a shift in Paul’s attitude as not a lot was said in the last half of the regression. However, there were a lot of long pauses during this time. Paul had calmed himself down and it is quite likely that the guides were working on him energetically while he was seeing all the coloured lights.

Paul left feeling light and happy. He had committed to asking the guides for help in the future, and he assured me he would return if he had any sense of going back into the old pattern of deep anxiety and fatigue.

This sort of session is called a transpersonal journey because it is set up to harness the wisdom of our spirit guides. The guides respect free will. They do not interfere in our human journey. To receive help, we need to ask as specifically as we can.

Before we embark on the transpersonal journey, we explore the client’s issues to gain clarity on the key problem. We call in the guides and ask them to keep out any unwanted energies so only those wise beings are present who are here for the highest good of the client and highest good of all. We do that so we can trust the journey and what is received.

Usually we start exploring the issue without any hypnotic induction but sometimes an induction is necessary to calm the client. If any blocks are present, our first task is to explore and dismantle those. Some clients have something on their mind. When so, it needs to be put to rest. Bringing it to the surface is the most effective way to do that.

Then we embark on the journey trusting we are receiving help from the guides. Sometimes information flows, coming to the client with no help from me. Other times I help the client surface information by asking questions.

I have found the transpersonal journey is a useful way of addressing issues that are holding clients back from progressing in the way they would like.

Life Can Be Easy. Here’s How!

Life Can Be Easy. Here’s How!

Regressions can change your life—as long as open yourself to your intuition. It doesn’t matter what you call it—your subconscious mind, your higher self or a spirit guide. Our intuition gifts us with flashes of insight that seem to come from a place far beyond the rational. During regressions, I help my clients create a permanent connection with their intuition—or with their spirit guides, if you prefer—so this wisdom is available to them as they continue along their spiritual path.

How Does That Work? 

You’re feeling confused or puzzled. A problem is gnawing away at you. And then, as if from nowhere, the answer pops into your mind—even if you never asked the question! But the answer is so compelling you can’t ignore it.

Life the Hard Way. 

Not that you don’t try to figure it out. The answer came so easily—without any effort on your part. So how can you take it at face value? Aren’t you supposed to wrestle with a problem, weigh up your options, seek advice from others? We don’t realise how much easier our lives would be if we learned to trust our intuitive wisdom. 

I have heard many stories from people who learned to trust their guidance. Here are two: 

Anton’s Sad Lesson

Anton came for a regression. I found Anton to be spiritually aware. Still, he harboured self-doubts—until one important day. 

Anton’s ten-year old Labrador, Rusty, became increasingly withdrawn and listless. Anton took him to the veterinary practice where several vets examined him. They were puzzled but eventually gave Anton a prescription. Rusty didn’t improve. At home alone, worried about his dog, an unexpected thought popped into Anton’s mind: A tick. Anton wondered if he should mention it when he went back to the vet practice, but it had come out of the blue, completely untethered to any experience.

“What do I know?” thought Anton. “The vets are experts. I know nothing about animals and illness. Anyway, they would have already considered that possibility.”

Unfortunately, they hadn’t, and Anton didn’t share his insight with them, simply discounting it because he trusted the experts more than himself. By the time the vets figured out that it was a tick, it was too late. Rusty died. 

That was a really tough lesson. But Anton didn’t waste it. Although he still had doubts, more often than not, he acted on his intuition. The importance of listening to his intuition and acting on it was also reinforced during his regression.

Tough Times for Regina

Until Regina came for her regression, she deeply regretted not acting on her intuition many years earlier. Her awakening unfolded over a long time.

Around age thirty, Regina felt lost and unhappy. The doctor diagnosed depression and said she needed a great new drug called Prozac. Immediately “NO!” came out of her mouth, unbidden and definite. But the doctor was insistent. 

Regina eventually relented and followed the doctor’s advice. During the following years, whenever she lapsed back into depression, doctors changed her prescription to other drugs. 

After seventeen years on antidepressants, Regina wanted to get off them. In hospital for other reasons, she mentioned this desire.  At this time, she was on Zoloft. During the five days she remained in hospital, the intern reduced her dose to nothing. 

Zoloft keeps Serotonin levels high and this signals the body to make less. When one suddenly stops taking the drug, the body is left with a deficit. This is called Discontinuation Syndrome and some people can take up to a year to recover. 

When the doctor cut her tablets back so drastically, Regina no longer had enough mood-stabilizing serotonin in her body. She suffered many months of what she called “a hell-zone withdrawal,” including serious mental illness and suicidal ideation. 

The Lesson

At the time of her regression, Regina still regretted taking the drugs because of this disturbing aftermath. I ask her to remember why she decided to take them in the first place, despite her initial refusal. During her session, she recalled the interaction with the doctor. 

The doctor said, “You have a deficiency,” and that made sense because I felt deficient in myself. Then she said I had a hormonal imbalance. That felt right too because I felt out of balance. She said the answer to my problems was this marvellous new medication.

I stayed on the drugs because they helped in the beginning and I felt “in” with the people around me. Many were on it, and it gave me a sense of belonging. Also, my stomach problems improved.

Regina’s decision was understandable. Nearly everyone would choose to take the medication in similar circumstances. At that time, drugs were accepted as the single appropriate treatment.  But, like many, Regina found that permanent improvement never came.  After years of persevering with different prescriptions, she knew drugs weren’t the answer. 

From her experience with anti-depressants, Regina lost trust in the medical profession. For a time, she was angry. She decided to address her issues by undertaking research in alternatives, making personal changes and focussing on her spiritual path. 

During her regression, she discovered that those horrid years were not wasted. Regina did not need to have regrets. She had received a compelling lesson in trusting her intuition. 

Both Anton and Regina needed their disturbing experiences. Anton lost his beloved dog. Regina spent nearly twenty years of her life on an emotional roller coaster. These lessons appeared because Anton and Regina had reached a necessary stage of soul development. Although they were anxious and timid, they were tuned into their wise guidance. They just hadn’t learned to act on it.   

Trusting our wise intuition is a life-changing experience. Life can be much easier when we do.  We know our guides are there beside us, looking out for us and giving us the best advice. All we have to do is act on it.

The real magic of magic mushrooms

The real magic of magic mushrooms

Recently I watched a TED talk about treating depression with the active chemical in magic mushrooms, psilocybin. Rosalind Watts, a psychologist who is part of a research term at the Imperial College London, gave the talk.

Twenty people who had long-term, treatment-resistant depression were given a high dose of psilocybin in a therapeutic setting. Each individual listened to music while being with a therapist who was there mainly for safety. The sessions were not structured by the therapist and lasted for about six hours.

Of the twenty people, six were completely cured of their depression, three experienced no change and eleven had their depression lift for two months before it started returning.

Using brain-imagining techniques, the researchers identified those areas of the brain affected by the psilocybin. Their conclusions? That the drug increased flexibility and neural connectivity, effectively unlocking the brain.

The results were positive but the real mystery to the researchers was: What did these people actually experience? Each individual was interviewed six months later. This is what the researchers found:

  • Most surfaced unconscious memories and past traumas.
  • They received insight into their negative patterns of behaviour.
  • They were liberated emotionally. Most had been numb or shut down emotionally. During the session many cried and released emotions.
  • They now felt connected when before they were isolated. Some reported feeling closely connected to friends and family. Others felt connected to nature. Many experienced a spiritual awakening with a sense of harmony and unity.
  • Their experience was perfectly structured and unfolded in a way that was optimal for their personal transformation.

Several of them, the researchers claimed, experienced six years of therapy in six hours. Some of these described their experience as “my brain being defragged,” “the fog lifting” and “the lights being turned on in a dark house.”

After these results, the researchers wondered if psilocybin could cure depression. They decided that the chemical only created conditions for the individual to cure him or herself.

It seemed the psilocybin was the magic that created the conditions, which appeared to be a special state of mind. In any case, that is what the researchers concluded.

But that wasn’t true either. You don’t need a chemical to reach that state.

People who come for a past life regression or a life between lives regression, don’t need magic mushrooms or psilocybin to create a state of mind where they transform. They revisit lost memories, resolve past trauma, gain insights, experience a sense of harmony and unity that we call the Oneness without ingesting any pharmaceutical. And they experience it all unfolding perfectly for their optimal learning. This state can easily be achieved with an experienced practitioner of life between lives hypnosis.

The sessions I facilitate with my clients mirror what was described in the psilocybin research. As soon as the client reaches a special state of hypnosis, I hand over to their guides who take them on the journey that is perfect for them. This journey and their experiences are beautifully designed for them by their guides.

A psychologist recently sent me a client who was suicidal after being depressed for two years. He had been in and out of hospital and was not able to work. He did two sessions with me and, according to his psychologist, his depression was gone. This is what he wrote a few months after his session:

You have been such a big part in my recovery and I am looking forward to the next time to see you.  The Guides have been very active in my life and the more I accept them, the more I succeed. Thank you for opening this door…for me to breathe and dream of the doorway beyond and that it has come to complete fruition. You might remember that I was given the motivation and wisdom to “open a door and expect a doorway”!

Of course, it is not only depressed people who benefit from these experiences, others do too.

Many people are helped, including those who want to understand:

  • the challenges they are facing in their lives,
  • whether they are on track with their life purpose,
  • where their loved ones are and why they were taken,
  • how to lift the fog of confusion or the distress of anxiety, and
  • how to heal or manage their physical problems.

As the researchers discovered, the real magic of the process that so helped their depressed patients isn’t in the mushrooms and isn’t in the chemical. The real magic is everyone’s ability to access a special state of consciousness. This state of consciousness allows us to address our issues in the most powerful way possible, assisted by high-level spiritual guides who are focussed on our greatest good.
