Regression therapy is a method by which a person, lost in deep hypnosis is able to look into the distant past and tell about it. Regression therapy can cure old mental, and even physical trauma from the past.
The patient sees not only amazing external changes, as it is not uncommon for breath taking stories to come to light during regressive hypnosis.
There are many shocking cases where striking changes in appearance and timbre of the voice are observed. Witnesses are shocked to tell how people change as they relive a period of a previous life when they were older - faces suddenly become twisted and aged. Conversely, suddenly the wrinkles of people who returned in times of adolescence went away.
Physical metamorphoses are sometimes even more dramatic: some researchers provide examples of people under hypnosis, in which the symptoms of the disease from which they suffered in past lives - for example, spasms of muscles in paralysis have manifested. As a Briton experienced his hanging blue lines from a rope appeared on his neck, the body of another, who had died from a severe beating showed multiple bruises. Each case of regression has specific details that prove the existence of reincarnation.
Here is an example. In March 1983, Australian TV broadcast a program about reincarnation that glued viewers to television screens around the continent and horrified everyone, including those who did not believe in reincarnation. In "Experiments on reincarnation" four randomly selected hosts from Sydney, under the hypnosis of Peter Rowser, made a journey centuries back in time.
One of them, Cynthia Henderson, remembered a life in which she was a French aristocrat. Moreover, in her speech she used expressions that have not been used in France for more than a few centuries. Cynthia siad that the castle where she lived, was located near the small village of Fleury. Although the woman has never been to Europe in her current life, she effortlessly brought the film crew to where the ruins of the castle stand to this day.
Another woman - Helen Pickering - under hypnosis remembered that she was once a man named James Bernal, who was born in the Scottish town of Dunbar in 1801 and evidence that such a person actually existed was subsequently found. For proof Helen drew a plan of Marshall College in Aberdeen and it turned out to be absolutely true. The building of the college from these days, is different from the picture of Mrs. Pickering. The painting itself, however, has a striking resemblance to the building plans found in the archives of the Scottish college, dating from the years Bernal was attending.
Mrs. Pickering was ruled to have been unaware of archived data and is unlikely to have studied the life of a Scot who lived in the nineteenth century.
In 1983 the theory of reincarnation got more clear evidence, this time coming from England.
Liverpool hypnotist Joe Keaton has conducted several experiments on returning to previous lives when meeting with London journalist Brian Ray. The "Evening Post" where Brian works, ordered a series of materials on the paranormal. The journalist decided to devote one of these materials to reincarnation. He asked the hypnotist to return him to a previous life to be able to describe his own feelings. Although Brian had never before been subjected to hypnosis, Keaton decided to satisfy his request. This case turned out to be one of the most amazing in the practice of Keaton.
Under hypnosis, Brian remembers some of his past lives, including one in which he was a soldier named Robin Stafford. Stafford fought in the Crimean War, after which he returned to England and became a boatman on the River Thames. In the memory of Brian, Stafford was born in 1822 in Brighton and drowned in 1879 in East-End. London .
During this experiment, the London journalist started talking with a low voice and with a typical Lancastrian accent from northern England, where Stafford spent most of his life. All this is so amazing that team members Kitten - Andrew and Margaret Selby, who were present during the experiment decided to find documentary confirmation of the existence of this man.
They were in luck : Guildhall Library in London had a list of persons killed and injured in the Crimean War. Among them was Sergeant Robin Stafford, at that time serving in the 47th Infantry Regiment. He was wounded in the arm in a minor skirmish during the siege of Sevastopol. In the papers, there was evidence of the further career of Sergeant Stafford - he was awarded medals for bravery and dismissed for health reasons. During the next session, Brian found all of the Selby family’s details. Dates, places and names of the battle of "Stafford" and other periods of his life were absolutely correct.
After spending a few days in the General Bureau for registration of births, deaths and marriages, Andrew and Margaret finally found the death certificate of Robin Stafford, where it says that death actually occurred by drowning (whether by accident or otherwise, is not found), and that Stafford was buried in the cemetery for the poor in East Ham. The date of death is precisely as indicated by Brian Ray during the session.
To deny the possibility of reincarnation one, must answer whether these facts could be known by the journalist. In this case, the possibility of Cryptoamnesia (to create reality) is practically excluded, because details of the life of the soldier were not known to the general public. If you do not assume that Keaton and company have fabricated this whole material, the return of a veteran of the Crimean War to the body of television journalist of the twentieth century is highly likely!
