Regression Therapy Series (16) — Somatic Pain Syndromes Without Medical Causes

The story I am going to share this time features Alvin, who has undergone nine sessions of regression therapy. The number of regression therapy sessions is directly related to the severity of the problem; the more serious and complex the issue, the more sessions are required. With Alvin's permission, I am grateful to be able to share two of his past life regression therapy experiences, which allows us to understand more comprehensively the experience of regression therapy and the recovery process.


The stories shared in this blog are some of the regression therapy experiences I find particularly special, many of which involve past life regressions and significant traumatic events. I would like to take this opportunity to clarify. Many people undergoing regression therapy will revisit memories from their current life, and many will regress to past lives; both scenarios are common. However, due to privacy reasons, I seldom share about current life regression therapy. On the other hand, we must realize that when we need to use regression therapy to connect to the root causes in past lives, there is a great chance we will return to painful and traumatic memories. This does not mean that we did not have pleasant past lives; rather, it's just those pleasant past lives do not require healing. That being said, we can indeed explore our happy past life memories through regression hypnosis. Everyone's past life experiences are different, and the ones shared in this blog are cases I find particularly special; not everyone's past lives are filled with such terrifying memories. However, if during regression therapy one does return to very frightening and painful past life memories, this also presents a great opportunity for healing the pain that was carried into the present life from past lives, allowing us to live more lightly and joyfully in the present lives. This is the most precious aspect of regression therapy — its strong healing power that is not limited by time (the present life).


Returning to the main character of this article, Alvin, his condition would be diagnosed as severe Depression and Anxiety. Due to some events he experienced during his growing up history, he has a great sense of insecurity and anxiety when establishing interpersonal relationships. He is particularly afraid of not fitting in with the group, not being accepted, and he is also very fearful of being abandoned and rejected by friends. This fear has developed into social anxiety, a type of emotional disorder. He also suffers from severe depression due to this fear of abandonment, with his mood often being very low. At its worst, he thought about suicide every day, feeling a sharp pain in his chest, as if many knives were stabbing into it, a kind of piercing pain that was very real. He needed his family to press a thick book against his heart in an attempt to alleviate the heartache, but to no avail. In addition, he often suffered from headaches, feeling as if tens of thousands of needles were pricking his brain. Sometimes he felt his brain and heart were so lacerated by knives and needles that they were mangled. Because his condition was severe, he sought psychiatric treatment and took antidepressant and anti-anxiety medication, hoping to alleviate his emotional problems and physical pain. However, even after taking medication for a while, these symptoms did not subside at all. Feeling that there was no way out, he and his family decided to seek regression therapy, hoping to reduce the pain in his heart and brain.





During the first time having regression therapy with Alvin, I believe that due to the influence of psychiatric medications, he was completely unable to enter a hypnotic trance state. Therefore, we decided to let him gradually reduce his medication before attempting regression therapy again. Once Alvin had completely stopped taking his medication, we tried regression therapy again. Since Alvin's heartache was more severe than his headache, during the regression therapy, I used his heartache as a physical memory to connect to the source of his pain. Almost immediately, Alvin was taken back to the moment of his death in a past life (when we experience unexplainable but intense physical or emotional pain in this life, these pains are often directly connected to their source, usually the moment of trauma, and often that is the moment of death in a past life). Alvin saw himself in ancient China, as a woman who was bound to a table. She saw a man and a woman on either side, holding sharp knives, their eyes filled with malice as they repeatedly stabbed her heart and abdomen, stirring her insides with the blade. During this process, Alvin screamed in agony and fear. He felt his heart and viscera being shredded to pieces. Then, those two people dismembered her and burned her body. Throughout this process, Alvin didn't just see the images but also felt corresponding physical sensations. Clearly, the heartache Alvin experienced in his current life was directly related to the death in that past life.


During regression therapy, when encountering such traumatic memories, it's crucial to employ numerous therapeutic techniques to completely release the subconscious pain, as this healing power is very potent. So, after fully releasing this pain, Alvin was able to revisit the past life death scene with a calm demeanor, saying, "I don't feel anything anymore." This statement signifies that the trauma has been successfully healed. Then I guided Alvin to explore what had happened in that past life that led to such a horrific death. In that past life, she was a woman with no one to rely on; after her family was killed by people who looked like gangsters, she lived a life of fleeing. Fortunately, she met a boy who was also an orphan, and they lived together, depending on each other, even developing mutual affection. Just when she thought she could trust the boy, he betrayed her, selling her to the enemies who had killed her parents, leading to her brutal death. The pain of her previous life wasn't just due to the physical torment but also the anguish of seeing the boy watching her being slaughtered without any attempt to help. The pain of this betrayal was no less than the pain of the stabs to her heart, so Alvin brought both types of pain to this life.


A week after completing the regression therapy, Alvin came back to the therapy room and told me that his heartache had significantly decreased and was no longer troubling him. However, his headache had worsened, feeling as if ten thousand needles were piercing his brain, a pain comparable to the previous heartache. So, in the next session of regression therapy, we connected the headache to its source. Alvin smoothly revisited another past life death scene. He saw himself as an Arab woman buried in the sand, with only her head exposed, surrounded by the vast desert. She felt very weak and after a while, a burly Arab man approached and squatted down to look at her. The man took out his dagger and drew an X on her forehead, then stabbed the dagger into the X on her forehead. The man then left, leaving her buried in the sand to die slowly. As she died, her eyes were wide open, watching the man walk away, with the dagger still in her forehead. The headache Alvin experienced in this life was the same pain from the dagger being thrust into her brain in that past life.


In the later exploration of this past life, we came to understand that, in her past life as an Arab woman, she fell in love with a man she should not love. She had thought that she had met a hero who could protect her and rescue her from danger, and so she quickly fell in love with this man. However, as they spent more time together, she discovered that this man was in fact a ruthless killer, and he began to imprison her. She attempted to escape many times, but each time she was caught back like a toy in his hands, never able to escape his clutches. In her final attempt to escape, she was found again and brutally killed. In this life, she not only retained the physical memory of headaches but also re-experienced feelings of abandonment and betrayal. These painful emotions and the sensation of headaches were carried into this life and were reflected in the numerous fears that Alvin encountered in his interactions with others.


The feelings of heartache and headache completely disappeared after just three regression therapy sessions, which was quite miraculous. Also, because regression therapy helped Alvin, we continued to use it to address his emotional issues, including fears of interacting with others, feelings of abandonment, and depressive emotions, etc.


In the subsequent regression therapy sessions, each time Alvin returned to a past life filled with suffering and trauma, such as being beaten to death by soldiers or having everything taken away from him at the happiest moment of his life, leading to suicide... Witnessing so many of Alvin's painful past lives, even as an observer, I couldn't help but feel a great sense of lamentation, realizing that today's emotional troubles could stem from so many past life traumas. Alvin's treatment also served as an important reference for the varying rates of recovery witnessed in regression therapy. After the initial three sessions quickly cured his headaches and heartaches, not every subsequent session showed significant improvement, and I remember that after two or three sessions, there was no improvement at all. It was not just Alvin who felt somewhat disheartened, but I did as well.


However, I came to understand that everyone's emotional issues are like layers of an onion, pain and trauma exist like layers in our subconscious mind. Each session of regression therapy is addressing the outermost layer of the onion. Since Alvin's emotional issues were composed of multiple layers of trauma, we had no choice but to persist with regression therapy to gradually reduce his emotional problems. Miraculously, after the last regression therapy session, Alvin's emotions improved significantly, and the previous efforts were rewarded. Now Alvin has let go of his social anxiety and feelings of abandonment, and the things that used to depress him he has also come to terms with, and his mood has improved a lot. This experience has made me more convinced of the incredible healing power of regression therapy. Everyone's recovery speed is different, if you decide to use regression therapy to deal with your problems, please maintain confidence and determination, the problems can ultimately be solved, and emotional and mental issues can be cured.


Thanks for Alvin's following sharing:"I am grateful to have met Clare, which gave me the opportunity to undergo regression therapy. Those who have experienced emotional illness probably know the feeling of helplessness, with drastic fluctuations in their condition and numerous thoughts of giving up. I was going through the darkest period, feeling like I could never get better, and even had several thoughts of giving up on life. Even after taking medication for my mood problems, I could suddenly became very calm, but inside, I felt a lot of blocked energy and emotions, and the physical pain was still tormenting me. The medication couldn't stop the physical pain (especially headaches and heartaches), and there was no significant improvement in my mental and mood condition. Eventually, I stopped taking medication and sought regression therapy because I had no other option, or perhaps I didn't want to be on medication long-term, and the pain was torturing me, like wanting to rip my heart out, and even strong painkillers couldn't help me. Of course, everyone's situation is different, so I am not encouraging everyone to stop taking medication. If you are already on medication but want to try regression therapy, talk to your doctor or Clare first! Because being on medication, you can't get into the trance state needed for regression therapy, just like my first time. But after stopping the medication, I quickly got into the right state.

The regression therapy process is actually very tough, because my condition was more severe, so I had to do it for several weeks in a row. And it won't get better immediately after doing it; the feelings of emotion and pain will be released layer by layer, and at this time, it's very easy to want to give up because it feels like there's no improvement, the score remains a long-term 10, and it seems to get worse because of clearing trauma and emotions. Fortunately, I chose to persist, and gradually it got better, and the physical pain healed without medication. Therefore, I encourage everyone not to give up on treatment even when there's no immediate improvement. One or two sessions without results might mean that there are many past or present traumas and emotions that need to be released. Emotions that have been built up over the years take time to heal, so I hope everyone will persist and will see the light at the end of the tunnel. I understand that persistence is very difficult, especially when you're in the whirlpool of emotions, but try to give yourself more time, have more compassion for yourself, and tell yourself that it will be okay. The one who can truly save you is actually yourself. You will realize afterwards that you are stronger than you think! Keep going!"
