Ever had the feeling of deja vu? Or a snapshot of a long forgotten memory? Are you attracted to particular places or times in history? Have you been here before? Barbara includes stories from real case histories and the techniques used for you to recall your own memories of other lives from the past or yet to come.
I’m in a saloon. There are cowboys sitting about drinking and playing cards. It is noisy and the warm air smells of beer, horses and sweat. There is a mirror across the wall, behind the shot bottles, and spittoons are in the corners. To the right of the bar is a wooden staircase leading up to the bedrooms. No secrets here.
I am thinking of the word ‘doxy’ although I’m not sure what that means (I do now!).
As my story unfolds it becomes clear that I am a working girl and these men are my customers.
This was my first experience of being regressed to a past-life and certainly not something I expected. My fellow student therapist, RS, was the book editor for a well-known Sunday tabloid; I was his first ‘client’ when I found myself recalling a past life as a prostitute in Louisville, Kentucky.
No matter how hard I tried, the ground refused to open up and engulf me, but when he realised what was happening he whipped out his pen and notepad and proceeded to interview me in true journalistic style. Equally fascinating was his own experience of being a soldier in WWI.
Nearly one hundred and fifty years have passed since my time in Louisville but it seems like only yesterday. We are all the sum total of our experiences and lessons in life regardless of whether they are from this one, the last or the next – as you will discover, if you haven’t already.
That first regression opened up a whole other world for me that I have since been able to share with many clients over the years for their healing or for pleasure. The lessons I have received from my clients cannot go unmentioned; the most valuable of which is to never assume anything.
I have learnt how we just ‘have knowledge’ without learning it from early childhood. Some people are able to speak a different language in their mother tongue or understand another without ever having taken a class. Others can compose brilliant music or have creativity that can never be taught. It is ‘in’ them waiting for the catalyst to trigger their moment of glory.
You can probably recall times in your childhood: happy thoughts of a birthday party, falling over and grazing your knee, getting into trouble, having a crush on someone totally inappropriate and many other moments. Sometimes you get a snapshot of a memory and at other times something may set you off on a trip down memory lane and you lose yourself in a daydream of reminiscence. All of these memories belong to you and are yours to retrieve and ponder on.
Finding out about our past lives is a very attractive thought. Many people visit psychics to be told whom they were or what might happen, when actually it is very possible to retrieve our own memories and I believe that the answer is for everyone with an interest or reason to learn the techniques to regress themselves easily and safely. The interest in past life regression has surged over recent years with more enquiries than ever before.
My own experiences started me thinking about sharing my knowledge in a book several years ago – maybe even in another life, but I didn’t pay attention to the signs. As the seed began to germinate in my mind it took on a life of its own and the title Past Life Tourism burst forth. As with most brilliant moments it was that feeling of ‘knowing’.
I wondered, though, if it said enough. We can just travel and explore anywhere that we choose for no other reason than we want to, but the title alone doesn’t let you know that you can also go forward. Hence the subtitle, Gateway to Bridging Your Past and Future, which I believe says it all.
In this book you will discover the facts about past life regression and future life progression: by the end of which you will be able to self-regress and, if you wish, research your findings. You may use any of the techniques in this book alone or with a friend or get together with a group of travelling companions.
I have not written this book in an attempt to prove or disprove the reality of past life memories: I am sharing my stories, findings, methods and the amazing accounts that those included have been generous enough to share.
Are you living your best life? Can you imagine it? Would you know if you were?
If you are struggling or suffering, the solutions to heal are within you and with guidance from this book many answers can be found. Another rather cool thing is that you don’t need to have a problem or any issues to be able to retrieve your memories from the past or to explore your possible futures. Desire is more than enough of a reason.
However, things can change; your wellbeing, aspirations and general outlook on life can be altered, quite dramatically, after a regression and often issues are resolved before you even know you have them.
