Déjà vu and memories of past lives

Being a past life regression therapist, I am often asked, what real evidence is available to prove that we have actually lived before? My answer has always been the same – there are many! The most convincing evidence is the déjà vu experience. In fact, I would say that 50 per cent of my clients started believing in reincarnation because of a déjà vu experience.

Scientific explanations talk about how the experience is actually caused by a person having a brief glimpse of an object or situation, before the brain has completed “constructing” a full conscious perception of the experience. Such a “partial perception” then results in a false sense of familiarity.

Sure, that could be true for a few cases, but how does one explain déjà vu when a person visits a place so familiar they feel they’ve been there before. Some describe the experience as déjà visité.

During a business trip to Johannesburg, I once took a walk. After 45 minutes, I could no longer remember which way I came from. I kept walking. Something told me that if I turn to my left, I would reach a blue chapel. I took a few steps to my left and there it was. This was my first visit to the city, so obviously, I was surprised. How could this be? This wasn’t just a fluke. During that walk, I also knew how to get to the spice market and an old worn-out garage. It was like I knew the streets of the city very well.

And I’m not the only one who’s had such experiences.

A close friend once talked about his trip to a gurudwara in Punjab. He was only 9-year-old when his parents took him there. As soon as he entered, he ran inside found a large portrait of a granthi, in the passage and stood starring at it. When his parents asked what happened, he said that the portrait was of him. The parents tried to explain that it was not possible, but my friend disagreed. He told them about how he sat at the gurudwara and gave sermons. By then, a few visitors and gurudwara helpers gathered around and started asking the boy questions. Surprisingly, he had all the answers. He even led everyone to a room that the granthi lived in. This room had been locked for years. Without even entering, my friend described the contents of a box owned by the granthi. The gurudwara staff later checked and confirmed the contents just as he described. Later, he even met a son of the granthi. They rejoiced at seeing each other and caught up on lost time.

The déjà vu experience is one of the biggest evidences of the theory of reincarnation

How can these experiences be scientifically explained?

According to the theory of reincarnation, we store our memories (of the present life and past lives) deep in the subconscious mind. These memories travel along with our soul from body to body. So, when we see a place in a present life that we’ve been to in a previous life, a memory from that life activates itself and we have a deep inner knowledge or feeling that we’ve been there before.

In my case, I even confirmed having lived in Johannesburg in my immediate previous life through past life regression session. That’s the best part of this therapy; whatever we suspect can be validated and confirmed.

Don’t curse the teacher, learn the lesson

In my profession, I have come across many people, who are so disturbed by the challenges in their life that they often blame God, the universe or destiny. Yes, some people go through a lot of trauma and in their place, it is very difficult to see the silver lining. But believe me, everything happens for a reason.

We burn our karmas with the fire of wisdom and go higher on the process of our soul’s evolution.

33-year old Mansi Singh (name changed) once came to me disturbed, because of her bitter divorce. She truly loved her husband and sacrificed a lot to be with him, but 5 years into marriage, he had fallen in love with someone else. Even though they had a 3-year-old daughter, Mansi’s husband abandoned them. Mansi was completely depressed and wanted to know why this was happening to her.

We decided to do a regression in order to find her answers. Mansi quickly went into trance where I lead her to a past life that will give her the reason. She was drawn to a life 200 years back where she was a powerful zamindar (land lord) in North India. This zamindar was wealthy, and had several wives, one of whom was Mansi’s husband of the present life. In that life, the zamindar ill-treated this wife and she went through a lot of trauma and grief.

In the life-between-life state, Mansi learnt that the wife of that birth came in this life as her husband to settle the karmas between them. Once she learnt this, she had a totally different outlook towards life. She took her life head-up and accepted all the issues and challenges she was facing.

In another case, a woman complained about being ill-treated by her mother-in-law. During regression, she saw that her mother-in-law was her sister in a previous birth. In that birth, she did something bad to her sister and made her life hell. So in this life, the sister came as a villainous mother-in-law to settle the karmas. After undergoing the therapy, she understood why she was facing this challenge and could empathise with her mother-in-law. In fact, after a few weeks, their relationship improved too.

This is how Karma works. It is a natural process and an infallible law that governs the universe whether we are conscious about it or not. It may take years, even lifetimes, to fructify, but it eventually catches up with you.

However, each challenge or difficulty comes in our life for a reason. Bearing that in mind, one should know that Karma is not a law one should be afraid of. It is a gift that brings one lessons for the soul’s personal growth, and will continue to bring these lessons back around until one has learnt them. Once the lesson is learnt, the problem related to that karma vanishes. We burn our karmas with the fire of wisdom and go higher on the process of our soul’s evolution. So we should make it our endeavour to understand these lessons and not despise them.

Finding answers through Past Life Regression

My journey in the mystic world of past life regression started way back in the 90s. After I heard about a near death experience of a close friend, something changed inside me and I was driven on the path of exploration. I was intrigued by the question, “Is there life after death?” My search led me to a lot of books on this topic by various psychics. All the books were a good read but somehow I was not convinced. Being an engineer by profession, my mind would not accept anything without a strong reasoning.

The search continued. They say, as soon as you have the a query, the universe answers. I experienced this when the universe answered through teachers, books and various sources. One day, I stumbled upon Many Lives, Many Masters written by Dr. Brian Weiss. This book somehow appealed to me; more so because it came from a qualified doctor, who himself was a sceptic before he got all the revelations and it contained a real life story with validated facts and figures. This is how I was led to the science of past life regression. When I experienced it, I also found my purpose of life – becoming a healer. The journey has been beautiful, full of excitement and revelations.

Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) is based on

  1. The Law of Reincarnation
  2. The Law of Karma
Past Life Regression Therapy answers a lot of questions about life

Past Life Regression Therapy answers a lot of questions about life

This therapy gives all the answers that one would have about life and life after life. It explains that whatever problems we have in our present life, in the present moment are due to our past – the decisions we took, the experiences we went through or the unresolved emotions attached to certain memories. The problem could be on a mental, physical or emotional level.

In PLRT, we go to the root cause of the issue troubling us in the present and resolve it there. This experience could have been in a past life or even the present life. By doing this, we loosens its grip over our present. The symptoms slowly disappear, making our present and future better.

The additional benefit of PLRT is that karmas associated with that particular incident also burn or get nullified. This leaves you feeling lighter and makes your life better.

Through my practice as a past life regression therapist I have found that it miraculously heals unexplained fears and phobias, common ones being claustrophobia and vertigo.

It is said that at the time of death i.e. when our soul leaves our body the emotions that are intense or predominant get attached to our soul. These emotions travel with our soul through various lifetimes. These intense emotions which have tremendous energy, if not resolved over time, start meddling in our day to day life and can drive us crazy. Many times, we are at a loss to understand why things are going wrong. This is where past life regression comes as a handy tool.
