Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy (LBL) is an advanced technique that utilizes deep states of hypnosis to access your memories of your experiences as a soul. In normal waking consciousness these memories are hidden, but deep trance permits a connection to be made so that soul memories can be re-experienced while in human form. LBL sessions are extremely profound and potentially life changing, so it is usual for the client and therapist to set aside the whole day to work together. The client should expect to be in trance for about four hours. The LBL session is usually experienced as a journey, remembering the trip back 'home' after a previous incarnation. Therefore, part of the preparation should focus on the experience of a past life regression to familiarize the client with this type of work. It is often surprising how quickly the journey is completed because, when in trance, time becomes very elastic and non-linear. LBL clients may choose to read Michael Newton's books in advance of the session, but this is not required.

The length of an LBL session allows for the therapist and client to really become familiar with each other and to build up rapport so that the journey to the spirit world will be one of collaboration and cooperation. It is important to ensure that all clients' questions and doubts are addressed so that the unconscious mind, which is going to do all the work, is fully satisfied and can relax and be comfortable with the process.

People who are already familiar with trance tend to enter into the hypnotic state more rapidly and with greater depth than those encountering this altered state of consciousness for the first time. For this reason, it is recommended that LBL clients practise and prepare with their therapist in a way which ensures that the client is able to relax into hypnosis easily. This can be achieved by practising with meditation tapes or CDs and also by arranging to experience hypnosis with a local therapist. Obviously, time and distance play a part in the practicalities of preparation and whether or not it is possible for a client to visit their LBL therapist for a session or two prior to their LBL. However, it is highly recommended that clients for LBL have experienced a successful past life regression before attending for their LBL session. Life between lives hypnotherapy is not a journey to be rushed, or fitted in with the other demands of a busy life. Clients who prepare with their therapist usually experience the most profound and life changing journeys.

You might wonder whether taking this journey into the memory store of your life as a spirit might result in dissatisfaction with your current earthly travels. Experience shows that it is usually the reverse. Knowledge and understanding of our purpose here on earth and the goals we set out to achieve makes LBL clients renew their committment to complete the remainder of this incarnation with energy, understanding and grace. During the LBL session individuals derive an enhanced understanding of why they have taken birth, why they have chosen to face the challenges that have arisen during the course of this life, and what soul lessons are being fulfilled by passing through these experiences. Through an encounter with one's 'Council of Elders' and a visitation to what some have termed 'The Place of Life Selection' it is possible for clients to understand that our present human incarnation, like those which preceded it, is a precious opportunity for spiritual evolution. As a result, people return to wakeful consciousness with a deeper commitment to live out their life purpose. The unique opportunity of their current incarnation and the spiritual evolution that may be achieved can be met head on with excitement and understanding.

The LBL session will be structured to meet the client's needs, dwelling on those areas that require a little more work and ensuring that client's 'big life questions' are satisfactorily answered during the course of the LBL journey. Generally speaking, the session will include a long and gentle trance induction designed to ensure that sufficient trance depth is achieved. Then clients can expect to experience a past life regression which will act a springboard to the life between lives state. Therapists will usually either provide a recording or a transcript of the session for you to take home.

After your LBL session it is an important part of the process to integrate the information into your daily life. Your soul has asked for and received wisdom about your purpose in this incarnation and so it is recommended that you listen to your CD or tape, read your transcript and many therapists ask clients to keep a journal so they can refer back to the ways in which this increased sense of identity and understanding become fused into your daily life. You have uncovered soul memories that you can use to complete the jigsaw of your life, earthy body, human intellect/emotional intelligence and spiritual identity all working together to make this incarnation your most successful and fulfilling so that you can resolve personal karmic issues and then go on to fulfill your spiritual work for this planet and the people on it. So the recommendation is:

  • To keep a journal;
  • Refresh your memories about your LBL journey (CD/transcript);
  • From time to time stay in touch with your LBL therapist;
  • Re-read Michael Newton's books for new insights into your own LBL.
