"I'm an Asian young woman wearing a black kimono with some red and white colors, and I'm holding one of those typical fan.. it seems like I'm dressed up for a performance, here at the village where I live. I'm not that excited.. I feel like I'm in a neutral state. Perhaps I'm dreaming to be somewhere else.'
Today's session was a past life regression with a first time client. Usually, after the initial consultation I suggest the client to choose an intention or a theme (experiencing some past romantic relationship, re-living a time where the person felt in tune with their higher self and their life purpose, diving into the root of low self confidence and releasing any particular fear, revisiting any hystorical event,..) so that she/he will be guided to experience lifetimes that will reveal her/him lessons that are usuful to the particular challengse that she/he is interested in.
Today the theme was, 'Random!' The client decided to leave to her 'spiritual guides' or 'higher self' the choice of the theme.
After guiding her to a state of relaxed and focused concentration, the client moved 'beyond the Light' and started to see herself as a young Asian girl on her 20s, growing up in a small rural village where she felt 'safe', but 'not very excited'. Sacrificing her dream to move to the big city (Tokyo), where she would have had the chance of expressing her full potential as a dance performer - both for the love of her family of origin, and her wish of not disappointing them and be looked down on by the community - the young girl decided to remain in the village. 'I'd be ok to try something new, but that's not the culture, I'm just doing what's expected. In the back of my mind I think what it would be to reach out.. but this is not even a possibility. You just don't do that.'
After guiding the client to the next important event of that life, she accesses an older version of herself as the same Asian woman. She has probably 3 kids now, a daughter for sure, which is on her teen. The pattern repeats as her daughter grows up performing dance as well, 'She's even better then me!', but feels very hesitant when encouraged by the mother (the client) to follow her dreams. 'The villagers would think my daughter would be crazy and too wild to leave.. and what if she would be back from the big city after she had left? They would look down on her, and wouldn't want her to perform again with the villagers as they would think she thought she was too good to leave them behind. But I don't want all this to affect her. I'm very vocal with her about it, and even the villagers know what I think and it bothers me a bit, but that's ok.'
I guide the client to the last important event of that life. She's able to see herself on her death bed, surrounded by her family. 'She did go!' I'm on my death bed and I can see my daughter, she's in her mid 30s now. She left to the big city about 20 years ago, and even though we stayed in contact writing each others letters, this is the first time I get to see her. I'm so proud of her! I'm glad she was selfish. She decided not to have kids 'cause she was so involved with her career. She does have a partner. She's very successful!' I feel good knowing I'm about to die. My husband is here and he such a positive person. He's been like a cheerleader to me for all his life. Such a good soul. I feel like I was the pessimist one of the two of us. We respected each other very much, and the fact that he was ok to have our daughter leave the house to follow her dreams, made me feel better. It was better even in respect of our community. I'm excited to see what happens after I die."
