This is being taken back to access past life memories by a trained professional. In other words you are regressed back to an earlier life
How do I recall the memories – first person or third person?
Regression can be done in several different ways:-
Generally past life regression is done using hypnosis, but when you are very familiar with the process, it can be done without the formal induction into a trance
Past life regression may take you back to a traumatic memory but the trained professional will be taking care of you so that you experience little discomfort and that the memory can then be healed so that it is no longer affecting you in the present
It is certainly possible that you have been a murderer, an abuser, a rapist, a thief, a swindler or killed or tortured people. However, if you have lived many lives, you, just the same as most other people will have had some lifetimes where you behaved badly.
