A few years ago, I started trying to unravel my family’s ties to the past. My parents never discussed their lives in great detail and it was always surrounded in a veil of secrecy in the guise of good parenting. I was taught to only believe what you could see, feel, touch, or hear. Science & Math were King and imagination & creativity were weaknesses, excuses to be ridiculed.
I’ve always been curious about the complexity of life and what guides us down our own personal paths. What happens to our souls when it’s not anchored to our bodies. Thinking about things like this has always made me feel anxious and vulnerable so I’ve never gotten past the “thinking about it” stage.
During this search for our family’s ancestry, I ended up with more questions than answers about who I am on the inside and what I believe in with regards to my spirituality. My father’s ancestral storyline is full of young and tragic deaths and since I don’t believe in heaven or hell I’ve always wondered what happens next.
My friend Carol Cassara, is a hypnotherapist and past life regressionist. She offered to do a past life regression session by Skype. Oh, the irony! It was the perfect opportunity meeting perfect timing.
I’m not going to lie, my anxiety was out of this world. Letting go and turning over the reins of your thought process is a very personal experience and since I didn’t know what to expect, I was scared. I’ve always had a fear of the unknown. I chickened out the first time and rescheduled (sorry Carol!). If I was ever going to do this it had to be now. I could do it and feel safe because I know Carol and I know I could trust her explicitly. It had to be with someone I trusted.
I haven’t been successful with meditation because I can’t keep my mind quiet like that and I figured a regression wouldn’t work either. I’m not going to go into the exact details because it was a deeply personal experience, but I was thrilled with the results. It’s not a one and done experience although it is only one session. It lasts about an hour & 1/2 to 2 hours, but days and even weeks later I still take the experience out and play with it like a Rubic’s cube.
I was taken to a place, another time, another plane and dropped into important times of this life and the lives before with the clarity of age and wisdom. Not all of it was comforting, but the feelings that it allowed me to experience and release left me feeling exhilarated. After it was over, I woke up feeling like I had taken the best nap of my entire life.
I am still learning from it. I listen to the recording again and again. Each time I pull out something different that I want to examine. It was an amazing, eye-opening experience that allowed me insight into myself that I never thought possible.
You may know Carol Cassara from Heart Mind Soul and now she has just put a 100% of all three of those traits into A Healing Spirit. A site created to support healing by providing you with products & services to cope with grief, sickness, or anxiety. As you can see from the images, she has created amazing journals full of prompts to help you through the process of healing. She created beautiful affirmation cards that you can carry with you to help you when you need it most.
Her guided imagery for healing is something that I’ve recently started. Hoping to get relief from the RA pain that is a constant companion in my life. It helps. When I’m in pain, I pop on some headphones, go to a quiet place and just listen. Part of the pain process of my flare-ups is a feeling that my whole body is clenched up tight. Like a marionette with my strings pulled up. Listening to the recordings, I can feel my joints release their tight grip like the pressure of opening a valve. It allows me relief without the need for pain medication. We all have our own beliefs. I won’t judge you for yours, please don’t just mine.
Head over to her site and take a look at all the beautifully crafted products!
