Regression therapist Dr. Linda Backman discussed her research of reincarnation, past lives, and the time that souls spend between incarnations. The hypnotic regression method she uses involves breathing and imagery techniques, with clients shifting into brain wave patterns similar to when they are sleeping, she explained.
The uncanny detail people provide about their past lives is evidence for the veracity of the experience, she commented.
Backman believes humans incarnate into bodies in order to evolve as a soul, and it might take hundreds or even thousands of lives to perfect the process. The reason most people don’t consciously remember their past lives is that it would hold them back from the progression they need to make in their current life, she offered.The benefits of past life regressions include understanding current relationships, as well as removing fears and health problems, she added.
Backman also regresses clients to the state where they are in-between-lives. During this period, souls go to an energetic location, and choose a new body and set of life circumstances, with the advice of spirit guides and teachers, she detailed. Some souls have lives on other planets or dimensions, where they don’t necessarily have solid physical structures– Earth is the most dense place to incarnate, she noted.
