What Is Past Life Regression?

Brian Leslie Weiss, an American hypnotherapist, psychiatrist, and author who specializes in past life regression (PLR), once said, “Our body is just a vehicle for us while we’re here. It’s our soul and our spirit that last forever.”

Have you ever met someone for the first time, and despite being the first time, the person seems incredibly familiar, and you can’t help but wonder if you know the individual in your past life? This sort of thing happens to many people at different times. While some people might have past life regression experiences more than once in their lifetime, others may not have it throughout their lifetime.

Past life regression sessions exist to help people explore their previous lives. But does it work? To find out, continue reading to learn more about PLR, its benefits, and how it works, amongst other things.

Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT)

According to Wikipedia, PLRT is a method that uses hypnosis to recover what PLR experts (specialists) or practitioners believe are memories of their incarnations or past lives.

PLR is a gentle form of hypnotherapy that takes an individual through time back to their incarnations or previous lives by accessing the experiences and memories hidden in the individual’s subconscious mind. Our current lives are usually too busy and noisy that the memories of past lives are hidden beneath the noise of our daily lives.

It provides people who are curious about their lives the opportunity to explore how they lived their previous. The information gotten helps people better understand themselves, desires, and habits. It also helps process grief, creates forgiveness, conquers nightmares and phobia, and resolves some of their life’s mysteries.

Benefits of Past Life Regression Therapy

Some of the benefits of PLRT or regression technique include:

  • It helps you reconnect with your past life experiences.
  • Help you explore your past life and current soulmate experiences.
  • Help you explore unresolved emotions (emotional scars) carried through into your current lifetime, which create beliefs or fears you have been unable to explain.
  • Help you better understand why you feel or have a deep connection with specific areas or places.
  • Help you identify ailments you have that are remnants of your past life experiences.
  • It helps you acknowledge, learn, and embrace the critical lessons through those lifetimes.
  • It helps you gain insight into your current relationships.
  • Reduces fears around death or about dying.
  • Deepens your understanding of your life’s purpose.
  • Resolve karmic patterns of behaviour.

How Does PLRT Work?

Hypnosis is the primary tool used during the process. Practitioners or PLR specialists use hypnosis, suggestion, and a series of questions designed to help patients recall or remember statements and memories about their past identity and history.

PLR sessions can help people treat their Past lives in two ways: they can either learn from it and use it to heal their current life or view it and remove energy blockages. A person can view their past life in different ways; you can watch it in a detached manner (similar to watching a movie), tag along and experience your past life second-hand, which has a complete in-body experience, and actually relive your past life.

Steps for Taking Past Life Regression

There are two primary ways to see or experience your past life. You can either do it yourself or visit a hypnotherapist.

Do it Yourself PLR?

Step 1: Prepare the room.

Remove every source of distraction. You can turn off the radio or TV, draw the curtains, and turn off your phone. If you have a noise generator, turn it on and make it loud enough to mask all outside noises or sounds—you can try brown noise or white noise.

Step 2: Relax your mind and become calm.

Recline or sit in a quiet, dark room. Make sure you are away from friends and loved ones as they could distract you as well. Pick a time when your body and mind will be calm, and you are more alarming. You might experience difficulty focusing if you are distracted, hungry, or have a song or movie scene stuck in your head.

Step 3: Prepare yourself.

Get comfortable, close your eyes, lie on your back, place your hands at your sides, and bathe yourself with protective light. Start by imagining a white light enveloping all around you. See the white light using your mind’s eye. The white light protects you from all negative influences during your journey.

Once you can see it, concentrate on visualizing and feeling the energy, making it more powerful and brighter. After this, you can pick the next colour that comes to mind and repeat the process until you are ready for the phase.

Step 4: Begin your journey.

Imagine that you are in a long hallway with a large door at the end of the hallway. Try to picture the hallway with as much detail as you can. Be flexible and creative; you can imagine your hallway to look Gothic, like a cathedral or forest floor with a bower of branches.

Imagine your hallway with the expectation of getting to the end; when you get to the end, turn the knob to discover your past life.

Step 5: Welcome a past life.

Accept the first thing you see on the other side of the door you opened as something from your previous life. Take what you see as your foundation, feel it, and build on it. Hold the image in your mind and open up to it, accepting anything that pops up in your mind.

Step 6: Be patient.

If you try and it seems like you can’t picture anything, then you can try thinking about something you liked or enjoyed; it could be a favourite skill, hobby, or travel destination. You can ask yourself why you like it so much and if it can be related to your past life.

Step 7: Accept what you see.

It may seem like you are inventing or imagining the images. Sometimes you are, however, to get better, you’ll have to accept it as part of the process of remembering your past life.

Step 8: Return to the present.

Most of the time, you’ll return to reality once you have run out of steam. You can also return to reality if you have to force yourself out of an unpleasant memory. You’ll realize that the images have stopped coming or your analytical mind has been triggered by something, and you have no other option but to open your eyes.

If that doesn’t happen, then you can imagine the hallway you used to explore a time of your life or different points of your past life. Imagine the door you used, open it and walk down the length of the hallway to reach the start point. When you get there, tell yourself that you’ll remember your past life in perfect detail and clarity.


Here, you’ll have to pay for the services of a hypnotherapist to help you explore or discover your past lives.

Some of the things you can expect your hypnotherapist to tell you during an online therapy or live session include clear your mind, relax your muscles, they could tell you to allow the light to flow through you, and when you get properly relaxed, they’ll help you open doors to your different past lives by taking you back and guiding you through time.

How Long Does It Take?

A PLR session could be achieved in as little as 15 minutes; however, if you’d like to recall into soul memories past the point of death, then it could require 45 minutes (or more) of trance induction.

What Does Past Life Regression Therapy Help With?

Specialists in the fields use it to treat some mental cases. The Therapy helps with

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Mood disorders
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • In addition to treating mental-related problems (including phobias and nightmares), it can help you better understand yourself, desires, and habits.

Early adulthood can be scary sometimes, especially when you haven’t figured out what you want to do in life or what your purpose is. PLR offers an opportunity for you to dig into your past and understand yourself and your purpose better.

Risk to take Past Life Regression

It has no risks as you can stop your visions or journey whenever you deem fit by opening your eyes.


If you are finding it hard to get a grip on the things happening around you or you experience a series of bad lucks, journeying to your past life might provide the answers you have been searching for.

PLS therapy is totally safe, and there are no associated risks. If you like meditating, then it’s a great way to meditate as well.
