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Anton’s ten-year old Labrador, Rusty, became increasingly withdrawn and listless.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.
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.
