Dr Liara Covert is a breathworker who has recently moved to the Sunshine Coast. She frequently interviews people about their lives and posts them on her blog. Recently she contacted me and asked me to do an interview. I checked out her website and felt an energetic connection. Her approach to life resonates with mine. I agreed to her interview and she came up to Maleny to do it. We spent a pleasant day together, taking care of business and then lunching and driving around the district. Liara had never been to Maleny before and was impressed with its beauty.
In the interview I share details of my life, the regressions, my books and some of the forces that have influenced me. Here is a link to a transcript of the interview:

Integrating the information you receive in your life between lives regression is an essential pre-requisite to having a life-changing experience.
Many clients describe the experience of their life between lives regression as life changing. Why exactly do they make this claim?
I decided to go through the notes of the clients I regressed one year to see if I could find any patterns in their experience.
I discovered that clients who were willing to open up to new possibilities and challenge their beliefs seemed to gain the most in terms of life changes. However there is a caveat to achieving this outcome that I will discuss later.
Some of the clients who appeared the most changed were quite challenged by the life between lives regression. They resisted some of the information flowing to them during the trance. I had to work hard to keep them focussed and accepting.
One sceptical person I will call George laughed loudly when the Council of Elders appeared in a stereotypical way. He described the Council members as wearing robes while sitting on cushions that were floating in a pond. A waterfall was gently falling behind them and there was angelic music playing. George thought this was esoterically kitsch and said “just what you’d expect if you believed in that stuff.” From time to time, this cynicism had him emerging from the trance. I had to keep reminding him to view it as just imagination and to simply enjoy the ride.
In spite of his cynicism, George experienced a profound change from his life between lives regression. During the regression he felt the love of his estranged mother who spontaneously came to him. He was advised to be more careful in his judgements in the future. His tendency to jump to conclusions had caused the damage in his relationship with his mother.
The experience of his mother’s love was with George as he emerged from the trance. This sense of love stayed with him and, months later, he said it had changed him. He is now more relaxed, more positive, more confident in life, more open to new challenges and possibilities and more loving.
George’s description of how he changed is similar to that of other clients. There is a fundamental shift in the way they see the world. They transcend some of their fears and pessimism.
One client, Rita, was greatly resistant when told by her guide that she had chosen her body before she arrived on earth. Rita didn’t like the way she looked and she couldn’t imagine anyone choosing a body like hers. When, in the trance, we arrived at the opportunity of exploring this choice, Rita hesitated. She was struggling to accept that she had, as her greater self, made this choice.
I called on the Council to help and they gave her the courage she needed to move forward. Rita discovered there were important reasons for the choice of her body.
After the regression, Rita was not able to hold this new understanding. Rita had spent most of her life hating her body. Accepting responsibility for her body was too confronting.
Some months after the regression, we met. We discussed the previous regression. Rita had forgotten significant realizations. I encouraged her to listen to the recording and gave her some notes.
She rang me a few weeks later. The new view had taken hold. She was much happier and more at peace with herself, and undertaking new adventures.
The need to integrate the information gained in the regression is the caveat that I spoke of earlier. Life changes only happen if the learnings become a part of you as a physical being. The new information has to be accepted and integrated into your belief system.
The more willing you are to be challenged, during the regression and afterwards, the more likely you are to experience profound, beneficial change.
I strongly recommend fully utilising your investment in a regression by listening to the regression recording. The more often you do this the better. You re-experience most of what you felt and understood during the regression and gradually you change to be more of your true self.
The process of Life Between Lives Regression takes the individual back in time, so to speak. He or she passes through the current life, back to experiences depicted as the immediate past life. After a brief exploration of the past life, the individual passes safely through the death experience and into the realm between lives.
Much is able to be explored here including the relationship between the past life and the current life. Individuals are usually working on specific themes in each life and this can be revealed. Relationships with loved ones and enemies are able to be better understood. Guidance about one’s future path is often available as well, although it might be expressed generally rather than outline any specific events.
Although it seems the focus is in the past, this is not actually true. Ultimately the spiritual regression is happening in present time but present time informed by ones past experiences. Some clients describe this as being bi-located. They are in the life between life state and, at the same time, they are aware of having a human body.
Some, however, are completely immersed in the LBL experience and are almost shocked to return, feeling again the heaviness of being human.
The Life Between Life process assumes the existence of past lives and a plan for our current lives. There is no way of knowing if what an individual experiences is objectively true. There is no way of knowing if the scenarios are real in an objective sense or if they are simply imagined. However this does not seem to matter. Sometimes an individual receives information that makes so much sense, they accept it as truth. In fact, most people who undertake this process have such a profound and enlightening experience that they tend to trust the guidance obtained about their life, their purpose and whether they are heading in the right direction.
Ultimately each individual needs to make up their own mind about the veracity of their experience. The only requirement for a successful Past Life regression or Life Between Lives regression is a genuinely open mind.
The Live Between Life process is not therapy and it is not intended to heal trauma. The exploration undertaken can make new connections for the individual and create a greater understanding of why they have encountered various life experiences. Sometimes this knowledge is therapeutic however it is important to realize that the Life Between Lives Regression is a positive process designed to gather information and understanding so individuals make future decisions that serve their highest good and the highest good of all.
