PAST-LIFE REGRESSION AND HUMAN CONNECTIVITY
Henry Leo Bolduc
After nearly forty years of research into and conduct of past-life regressions, I have become a strong believer in the connectivity of all of human kind. The memories of each individual contribute to the collective memory of all humanity. The client and the hypno-therapist both learn from the lessons produced in regression sessions. As these lessons are shared with family and friends, the benefits spread. Others begin to realize that they too have similar patterns in their lives. I do not believe this is by chance. All of us are linked together. We are united as drops of water in a vast ocean, the ocean of God’s love.
Whether in a social setting, workshop, or individual session, I have been reminded that people often share common past-life reflections. For example, it is common for many people to experience a past-life as a Native American. To take this one step further, it is not uncommon for two or more people to share an experience during a past-life regression that is so closely related that they associate with the specific happenings in the recollections of the other. A specific example will serve to illustrate this point.
During 1988 and 1989, I had the privilege to conduct past-life regression sessions with two ladies who were close friends and co-workers. I will refer to these ladies as Diane and Priscilla. The sessions were conducted at a rate of one per month. During each session, one of the ladies was regressed while the other served as an observer. After a number of the sessions, it became clear that these ladies had been together in a variety of past-lives. It was common for the lady who was being regressed to identify the other in the resulting story. Furthermore, the observer could “see” the story as it unfolded, often adding details during the post-session discussions.
In one of Priscilla’s regressions, she saw Diane not only as a Native American woman who saved her life after she was orphaned, but also as a teacher. Priscilla revealed Diane’s Indian name, a name that was familiar to Diane. Priscilla believed she was an apprentice to Diane and was to take Diane’s place when Diane passed on.
A similar pattern emerged during other sessions. In one case, Priscilla went to a very advanced, pre-Incan civilization. Here, she was a male with a friend named Donnus. In the story that developed, Priscilla had a strong disagreement with Donnus and feared the relationship might be destroyed. However, Donnus attended to her at her death. She recognized Donnus as Diane. Here again, Diane was able to observe the story, add details, and “see” herself in the role described by Priscilla.
In Diane’s regressions, she often associated herself with a great flying beast having mystical powers. Because of her own regressions and by observing Diane’s, Priscilla was able to explain that the beast was a manifestation of Diane’s own mystical powers. Priscilla further explained that the recognition of these powers was the reason she saw Diane as a teacher in her own past-life experiences.
One of the most interesting sessions in this series of regressions was Diane’s “Bone Crusher” lifetime. Diane regressed to a life of suffering in a parched, stark environment. She was a member of a dark-skinned tribe that barely survived by eating the few animals they could find. The tribal members were surrounded by the bones of the animals they had eaten. Diane respected the bones. She crushed the bones to produce a substance placed upon the body, possibly for medicinal purposes. She believed that this particular experience was teaching her to appreciate all living things because they have a purpose and work in union with each other.
Diane’s departure from the “Bone Crusher” lifetime was particularly profound. As she passed from this life of suffering, she felt great empathy for those that remained. She ascended through a swirling spiral to a bright white place where she observed being a particle of dust among many such particles. In this place, she was comforted as though many hands were touching her. Occasionally, some of the small dots or particles dropped back into the spiral, presumably headed to another incarnation. Others were allowed to enter a tube and ascend to a higher place. Diane was informed that she had much to learn before she would be allowed to ascend. She felt she could be dropped back into the swirling spiral at any time.
We see in Diane’s exit from the “Bone Crusher” lifetime, her return to a place where all humanity is depicted as particles of dust – each particle separate, yet like all other particles. Each particle has the potential to ascend to a higher place or return to another lifetime to learn important lessons. This regression session illustrates my belief in the connectivity of all human kind. Whether characterized as particles of dust in a bright, white, and comfortable place or drops of water in a vast ocean, we are all united.
Each of the regression sessions that I conducted with Priscilla and Diane produced stories that illustrated patterns of importance not only to the individual regressed but also for the observer. By “filling in” some of the details and being able to observe the story, the observer became more knowledgeable regarding her life patterns. This synergistic process enabled each of the participants to more fully understand her patterns and apply their meanings to daily experiences.
This series of regressions is one example serving as an insight into the continuing nature of Earth School, and the fact that we are all in attendance. We share some of the same classrooms and attend some of the same sessions. Our experiences may be different, but the lessons learned by each of us contribute to the eventual “graduation” of the entire class – all of human kind.
From another perspective, regression sessions enable us to tap into a vast library of memories where all information is stored. This information is not only available for each of us to understand more fully our present life and true identity but also to identify how we have and may continue to help others.
