Have you ever met someone and thought, "OMG, I feel like we've known each other forever?" Well, maybe not forever — but it's possible you knew this person in a past life. The practice of past life regression allows you to explore the previous lives you've led and receive guidance or understanding you can use in the one you're living now. Keep reading to learn more about past life regression and how you can use it to achieve deeper self-awareness and wisdom.

What Is Past Life Regression?

Past life regression is a form of hypnotherapy that gives you a focused awareness to access memories and experiences from a previous life. It stems from reincarnation, the belief that a person's soul is reborn into a new life after their biological death. Through past life regression, you can recall memories from your previous lives. When undergoing this therapy, you're in a meditative state; you're aware of your surroundings but fully relaxed, allowing you to engage the deepest parts of your subconscious.

During a past life regression session, a Psychic Advisor will guide you into this meditative state and take you into your past lives. They'll ask questions about what you're seeing, but you'll be in complete control of your memories. Afterward, you can work together to review what you've learned about your past lives and determine how you can apply those lessons and experiences to guide your current life.

What Can You Learn From Past Life Regression?

Many people believe their past lives can impact their present one. If you're struggling to solve a problem or having issues in a relationship, past life regression may shed some light on your situation. For example, a trauma you've experienced in another life may continue to affect you today, often in ways you don't even realize. With past life regression, you can learn more about yourself and work to resolve past hurts.

People also use past life regression to gain perspective and insights about themselves. With this type of therapy, you can better understand why you think, feel, and act the way you do. It can clarify your purpose and offer a roadmap for moving forward in this life.

Some other reasons to consider past life regression therapy include:

  • Understanding connections to certain people or places that you've never been able to explain.
  • Discovering the reason for a physical condition, such as a chronic illness.
  • Allowing you to process your past lives so you can release the trauma, fear, or pain you associate with them.
  • Learning more about your past lives so you can increase your self-awareness and understand yourself better.
  • Achieving spiritual growth by embracing your soul's journey through various lifetimes.

How Can You Retrieve Past Life Memories?

If you've never experienced past life regression, it's best to start with a skilled advisor who can guide you through the process. Some memories you retrieve from your past lives may be concerning or upsetting, so it's helpful to have a practitioner who can provide support. That said, there are ways you can work to recall past memories on your own. Here are some best practices to follow:

Pay Attention

A simple way to begin exploring a past life is by paying attention in your current one. Do you feel a deep connection to someone in your life? Does a specific location feel familiar to you, even if you've only been there once or twice? Make time to notice these connections in your daily life. Acknowledge the emotions you attach to those experiences and consider why you may feel that way about them.


Among its many other benefits, meditation can be a great way to tap into a past life. When you meditate, you clear your mind and allow space for quiet exploration. If you want to use meditation as a form of past life regression, try focusing on an intention or mantra before you start. For example, you may say, "I'm seeking guidance from my past lives." During your meditation, be aware of what you see, hear, and feel.

Interpret Your Dreams

How many times have you woken up after a dream and felt convinced it was real? Dreams can serve as a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms, allowing you to access your past lives. If you have the same dream frequently, it may relate to a past experience or memory. Try keeping a dream journal, where you write down everything you can remember from your dreams as soon as you wake up. Look for recurring themes or symbols that may point to a past life.

Ask for Spiritual Guidance

Sometimes, all you have to do is ask. It's as simple as asking a spirit guide for memories of your past life. Try asking for this spiritual guidance before you meditate or fall asleep. Be specific about what you want to know. For example, you may ask for help understanding why you're experiencing a problem in a relationship or why you have a specific fear.

Is Past Life Regression Real?

Like many spiritual disciplines, past life regression has its doubters. Some scientists say they're skeptical about the idea of past lives and the ability to recall memories from them. Others say there's a need for more research in this area to be confident about its existence.

Ultimately, the decision is up to you. In general, people who believe in the idea of past lives are more likely to access those memories, simply because they're willing to try. Certainly, there's a lot about the universe we don't understand — and never will. That doesn't mean you shouldn't seek to understand your own purpose and place in the world. Past life regression can help you unlock core memories about your existence, empowering you with greater self-awareness. And that's a true gift.
