In my practise of past life regressions, I have sometimes come across spirits that come during the sessions to seek forgiveness from my clients. In all of these cases, the spirits had not been attached to my client previously. They usually come when the client visits the relevant past life and they ask for forgiveness for their behaviour in the past.
In one such case, the client recollected a past life where he was a princely heir of a European line of kings. He saw himself being stabbed to death by his wife. Immediately after he visited the past life, he found himself face to face with the spirit of his former wife. The client was quite disconcerted but the woman simply said she had come for forgiveness which my client readily did. She said she still desired to be his wife in a future incarnation and that she would wait for him in the light. She left to the light afterward that.
There are times when the client starts spontaneously recalling a past life the moment he is under hypnosis. Usually this happens when the subconscious of the client has an important problem to be resolved immediately. But in one such case, it was not the client’s subconscious that ‘threw’ up the memory of a past life but it was a spirit. The client in this case was taken to a traumatic past life where he had been violently hacked to death. The client could only see fragments of the past. He had been a poor kid living in a slum and all the client could remember was the violent death and the face of the perpetrator – a cruel looking man in his forties.
I moved the client away from the past life because he was obviously experiencing the trauma once more. Immediately client saw himself facing the spirit of the cruel looking man. The spirit carried a sword in his hand. It was the same sword that the man had used to hack the child to death. My client became so upset and angry that I had to bring him out of the session without releasing the spirit of the cruel man.
But that night my client dreamt of the cruel man and it was quite disturbing for him. The client fixed an immediate appointment with me the next day. I explained to him that it is important to release spirit attachments once they show themselves and the dreams had been because the spirit of the cruel man had not been released. My client agreed reluctantly to talk to the spirit.
I induced hypnosis and directed the client into a guided imagery session. He pictured entering the garden he had visited in an earlier session. There he found the cruel man waiting for my client. Initially the client reacted angrily and started challenging the spirit. Challenge could lead to flaring of egos and the case could only get unnecessarily complicated. I reasoned with my client. He calmed down and asked the cruel man what he wanted. The man immediately threw his sword down and begged for forgiveness. He told my client that he had suffered much due to his guilt and regret over his ghastly deed.
My client was reluctant to forgive the man. Usually most clients readily forgive or let go of past life issues and attachments. But in this case, my client had become upset over the brutality of the murder and was still sore over it.
I asked my client to call upon his spirit guides. He saw Jesus and another guide come into the garden. My client asked for their advice but they said they are leaving the decision entirely to my client. They said they would be okay with any decision my client made. Obviously it was time for my client to learn through his own thought. It is incidents like these that evolve most of the clients to a whole new level of maturity and spiritual growth.
After much thought my client decided to forgive the cruel man and he did it willingly. Not surprisingly, my client felt emotionally relieved on forgiving the cruel man. We helped the man go into the light after that.
