There is light at the end of the tunnel, but first we must inhabit the darkness with complete faith knowing respite awaits ahead.
The tunnel represents our life’s journey, filled with darkness. In such moments it’s natural to look for a way out, yet we should trust that a turning point awaits us further down the road.
The darkness can be terrifying when we’re stuck, unable to navigate our way ahead. It signifies the inner struggle where in moments of despair we feel helpless. However, these are inaccurate thoughts that can pull us deeper into this darkened state.
Trapped in a grim shadow of darkness can be unrelenting, given the cycle of suffering offers no respite. Yet, this is an illusion since we lose our place to the upheaval that surrounds us.
However unwelcoming our circumstances, we needn’t suffer alone Jesus A Course in Miracles . To have others accompany us reaffirms our faith in someone to lean on when it matters. This simple act of renewal strengthens our resolve because two souls walking into battle are soldiers in arms.
There’s a passage in the song Let It Be by the Beatles that reaffirms why we must allow circumstances to be as they are: “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me, shine on until tomorrow, let it be.”
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, you must admit you couldn’t help looking if someone showed you a couple of images or a short film about different moments your past lives. I am sure you would also be tempted to see your future, at least get a glimpse of what interests you most in this life.
Although some religions have the idea of reincarnation in the center of their belief system, people were rather skeptical about it for many years. However, since psychiatrists started using past life regression as therapy, we have come to understand the link between certain experiences we had in the past and the present moment. Therapists try solving some of their patients’ emotional problems by ‘sending’ them back into the past, to the moment or period that constitutes the starting point or cause of present-day torment. There is also the possibility that the origin of a current problem be found in some ‘future life’. Anyway, all these past, future or parallel lifetimes have one purpose only: to make you realize your true nature.
There are two ways in which you can access your past lives. One is involuntary and may happen anytime (recurrent dreams, feelings of ‘deja vue’, memories of certain places we have never been to, of people we have not met, of experiences that we cannot claim to have had and yet seem so real as if we had lived them). The other is through hypnosis and it implies the participation of a specialist in hypnotherapy who conducts the session. The session begins with a relaxation exercise by means of which the subject is prepared for the episode of past life regression that follows.
An induction technique combined with some instructions is used. The subconscious mind of the subject will slowly take the therapist to the source of the problem. When the patient starts communicating his or her feelings and emotions, describing the images that he or she sees, sometimes uttering obsessive words, the difficult part begins. The therapist must put the pieces of information together and interpret them so that they make sense. It takes time and a lot of practice for one to reach that level of understanding.
As form of therapy, past life regression is considered to be very effective for a wide range of emotional problems, especially in the field of human relationships. By working with traumatic memories from past lives, therapists sometimes discover the source of both an emotional and physical problem. Some other times, they even detect a belief in the patient’s subconscious mind which limits his or her success in life. Many phobic reactions that could not be explained by any present life experience come to light after a session (or several sessions) of past life regression.
