I will never forget my first past life regression.
I had been searching for spiritual meaning for quite some time, what the church was teaching just didn’t seem to answer all my questions, there seemed to be something missing, it wasn’t that I didn’t believe church doctrine, but there had to be more.
I had been sensing that there was really life after death, not the life most of us had bought into, but a real life on real planet earth, I had seen visions of my living in a different time and place, a time before the twentieth century.
It was time to investigate.
As I read the local paper one evening, I came upon an ad a local hypnotist had placed, the ad said he could cure smoking with hypnotism, my interest was peaked. I had read how people had undergone hypnosis and recalled lives they led in a time before this one.
This was new uncharted territory and it took some time before I mustered up the courage to call him.
Finally , I decided I could delay it no longer, this was something I had to do, regardless of the outcome.
My wife and I had been having some marital issues, and I thought that perhaps I could find answers that would help solve the issues we were having.
Talking with Tom, he stated he had only done three past life sessions, that didn’t peak my confidence any, but decided to do it anyway, what did I have to lose?
The session went quite well, I regressed to two lifetimes I sensed having lived. One was in ancient Egypt and one lifetime was during th American Revolution.
After overcoming my initial shock of the reality of it all, I began to realize that is was the only thing that ever made sense to me, it answered all the questions I had about why people do and think the things they do and think.
If people carry these memories over from lifetime to lifetime, I could understand why we feel about certain people the way we do. If we remember how we related to people in the past and how they related to us , that would explain many of our relationships today.
It wold also help us understand people of different ethnic and sexual preferences , if we realized at some period , we may have lived as a different gender, race, or sexual orientation, it wold be hard to have any ill feelings toward those people today.
I couldn’t wait to share what I had learned, I thought many people would be overjoyed at this new knowledge.
Boy, was I wrong, my wife thought I had finally gone off the deep end and needed psychiatric help, a couple of the friends I had shared what I was planning on doing never believed a word of what I said.
Man! What a let down. How I could I be so thrilled at what I discovered, the truth I had been seeking when everyone else was not only not interested but couldn’t comprehend anything I had experienced, and didn’t seem to care?
It didn’t deter me, I keep studying and learning, and over the years I have for the most part encountered the same response from those I have shared the knowledge with.
Most people are stuck in their own little box, regardless of how open minded they proclaim to be, there are certain boundaries they won’t cross.
I have discovered the knowledge we acquire, especially in this field, is for our own spiritual growth and in many times no one else. They are on their own path and they will learn in their own time.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures, and is available for book signings, and speaking engagements.
