Past lives regression with C. Penczak
If Christopher Penczak's teaching schedule brings him anywhere near you, I suggest you sign up for a workshop! I attended his plant familiar class at the Sacred Space Conference, and one of the other ones he taught was past lives regression.
Chris presented a logical aspect of this that has always bothered me a bit--how can so many people have been Cleopatra in a past life? There are just too damn many for any of this to work. The concept he suggested was this: suppose that our consciousness, after death, goes back to a big pool. This is a repository for your essence, what makes you you.When a new being comes into existence, that being is filled with consciousness from the pool, so there may be some essence from Cleopatra, and some from my grandma, and some from medieval midwife, and so on. It's like a new cup dipped into the pool.
A further point he made was about manipulating your past life regression with your imagination. Even if this is the case, what you bring up is what you need to work on, whether is genuinely from a past life or not. Most past life regressions, he maintains, are really kind of basic & boring: tending the baby, tending the house, planting, tending the fields, work of some type.
My past life was...goodness gracious, I can't believe I'm admitting this, even on an anonymous blog..............
as a jellyfish. OK, it was a big, gorgeous jellyfish rising up above the edge of the earth & lit from within. You know how there is the exquisite Tree of Life, the World Tree? It was a jellyfish like that. But yep, when I was led to look back for a past life, I was a jellyfish. So I bought the little beany baby jelly in the photo so that I would have a tangible reminder.
After this experience, I went on to read Shirley MacLaine's book, Out on a Limb, about her spiritual awakening, and how she came to believe in past lives. She was incredibly skeptical at first, probably even more skeptical than I. Her book is not perfect, but it is worth reading, and it's cheap & easy to find in used form.
