My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
If you are desire to use the spiritual gift of past life regression (the ability to project yourself spiritual self back to a certain moment in time), the most successful method is projecting yourself back to a specific time and place in YOUR past in THIS incarnation. It is also easier if you focus on a specific point where your mind was alert and aware and your senses engaged, as well as your feelings. This way, you have an anchor point - a mental address where you can focus your thoughts to send your spiritual self back in time.
Anchor points are those moments that are more clear because you paid attention and were mindful of that moment and place. As a result, the "address" of where your soul will be projecting to, is clarified. This leads to the awareness that the skill of moving through the past improves if you were more mindful and aware of certain moments in your life that you can recall in detail.
Having anchor points from your past can help you train your mind to formulate an "address"to where you are going to project your soul back to. Regressing to specific anchor point moments in YOUR past is good place to start when you are learning and developing the skill of past life regression.
If you are developing and practicing the skill of moving through time in the past, the EASIEST past to regress to is in your own life in THIS incarnation. Why? Because this is the life experience you are most closely associated with, remember, and know more intimately than any other time or life.
This is what I have learned from my regressions to MY past in THIS incarnation:
The process that most easily worked for me is to use a memory of a specific moment in your life experience that use that moment to serve as an "address". Essentially the process is similar to an astral travel projection - you tell yourself you want to leave your body, travel to another time and place, and then give your mind the address of where your spiritual self is supposed to go. But this time, you are projecting yourself to a certain moment in the past - to visit YOU, rather than projecting yourself to the astral plane..
It is easier to regress to a past moment in your life if you can mentally visualize that specific event. The more detail, the better, because it helps you "lock down" that address. The more you can see and feel that moment, the more surety you will have in directing your soul to where you want it to go.
When I know where and when I want to regress to, and my purpose in going there, I then begin my normal meditation, and project my spiritual self out of my body to that moment in time that i have in my mind and heart.
WHAT IT IS LIKE
Regressing through time is a SPIRITUAL experience - it is not necessarily physical experience. My physical body stays in a meditative state in my living room. It is a part of my spiritual self that leaves for this adventure. I physically stay in my meditative state and focus my thoughts on this regression the whole time I'm doing the past life regression.
When I get to my former past self, I then "see" me as if I'm observing a movie. I'm there as if I am witnessing the event at a specific moment of time. Most times, my former physical self does not even notice or feel my spiritual presence during these past life regressions. Later in my life, when I was more spiritually tuned in, that changed, however.
WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU REGRESS TO YOUR PAST
Usually you have a reason why you want to visit yourself in your past and more than likely it is because you want to change something. As a result, you will need to be able to direct subtle energy or direct energetic communications to your former self to make a change happen. This means you also need to have additional spiritual gifts and skills available so you can achieve the changes you desire.
To change an opinion or a decision in the past, you will need to communicate in some fashion with your former self, and because you are not physical, this means you have to communicate ENERGETICALLY. Energetic communication is based on prompts, feelings, dreams, and thoughts. So you will need to use one of those tools of energetic communication in order to get your former self to change course. Your former self will need to accept and receive the energetic message, and then interpret it correctly, and then act on that message - all of which may or may not happen.
But there is one thing that most everyone can do when they visit a moment in their past - they can share love and comfort. You can direct your thoughts and feelings to to provide comfort and love to your former self in that moment in time. This type of energy sharing in a past life regression can (and does) help a former self through those difficult moments in life.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CHANGE THE PAST?
If you regress to the past, meet and successfully converse with your former self, and then your former self makes a different decision - ,will this change the present? Yes.
But also be aware, that if things change, your memory will change, too. You will no longer remember the past you used to know. Your past is now rewritten.
So, if I still have the memory, does this mean it didn't work? Correct. IF things don't change, then most likely the message was not received or it wasn't accepted.
Be aware that sometimes your Higher Self will see that something in the past helped you learn or achieve something that you needed, so will not allow the change in events to take place. This, too, is a lesson in itself.
IF IT DOESN'T WORK, WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
If you are not getting the results you desire, try doing this activity at an earth energy center where the life force energy is more vibrant. This may give you the additional energy you need to pull this off.
Training yourself to travel to the astral plane will also help you train yourself to travel through time.
Also, train yourself to become proficient at telepathy. This will help you improve your ability to receive and send energetic messages.
Do mindful meditations as this will help train your mind to keep focused.
Much of the cultivation of subtle energy/spiritual energy is about learning how to sense and then, interpret those subtle energetic messages. Subtle energy messaging can be through meditations, thoughts, impressions, dreams, music, telepathy, visitations by Spiritual Beings, and probably a myriad of other ways as well. If you are desiring to learn about your past lives, for example, you may receive the information about your past lives in any of those communication methods. One way that I learned about one of my past lives was via a dream.
In this dream, I was in a confederate uniform on a galloping horse, going as fast as I could, then was shot in the back, fell over in a ditch and then woke up.
When I woke up, I realized the dream was a significant dream, because it lingered with me and I couldn't shake it from my mind. The dream bothered me greatly, and I was going no where in understanding or interpreting the message, so I asked John U.K., my Spiritual Guide and teacher, for help. He reminded me I had been interested in learning about my past lives, so my Higher Self sent me that dream. The dream was an excerpt about one of my past lives. In THAT life, I was a confederate soldier in the Civil War, fighting for the South, shot in the back, and killed.
I was surprised by this, especially since I have NO INTEREST in the Civil War period at all. None. I had assumed if I lived in that period, I would have some FEELING about that period or be drawn to that part of the country, but I have NONE.
John U.K. then went on to say, "Those who lived that experience or in that time period will usually have no interest in it once they reincarnate. Those who are fascinated and drawn to certain periods in history or to certain areas, usually did not live it. They become drawn to that period because they think they missed out."
What I learned from this experience was that dreams can be used as a message about a past life experience. Interpreting the dream of a past life usually doesn't follow the rules of the interpretation process and it usually doesn't match or gel with ANYTHING going on in your current life. And, if you are NOT interested in a certain time in history, it MAY be due to you already living that experience so don't want to spend any time and effort doing it again - you been there, done that, and let's move on, kind of thing.
Past life regression is a spiritual gift using 3rd chakra energy. My first past life regression experience was regressing to a previous time period in the same physical location I was sitting at, which was an earth energy site. But my next past life experience was regressing to one of MY former lives in a different locale than the one I was physically at. THIS experience was totally different from my first past life regression at Buckhorn Wash (see blog post on Past Regression at Buckhorn Wash).
Just like my first past life regression experience at Buckhorn Wash, however, this also happened without any warning. I was on a family vacation in the Caribbean islands and our family was touring an old Spanish military fort on the island. We were wandering around the fort and I looked down at my feet and I no longer saw my sandals - I now saw I was wearing shiny leather boots. It was as if I was in my body, but it was NOT my body. I was also aware how much I LOVED those black boots and how well those boots showed off my Spanish military uniform.
I could HEAR this man's thoughts as if they were my own, and now I started to FEEL this person's feelings, too. I could FEEL his contempt, hatred, and anger toward his wife and I listened to how he belittled her in his thinking. I could FEEL his former scheming to win her over for marriage so he could secure money, title, position, and contacts, but now loathed her. I could also FEEL how he saw how his wife manipulated their two daughters, who he adored, to get back at him because of his contempt. An image of his daughters then popped in my mind who seemed to be around 10 or 12 years old and were wearing VERY fancy dresses and shoes with curled hair and ribbons. The dresses were pastels with lots of lace and ornate embroidered designs in the cloth, with hooped skirts, and I could tell they were children of wealth and privilege.
I now became aware THIS MAN was ME in a FORMER incarnation. The whole regression experience was very brief - only a couple of minutes and then it was over.
So why did this past life regression happen at that moment? I believe it may be because I had been wanting to learn more about my own past life experiences and the opportunity presented itself because I was in location that had a similar energetic environment to the one I had in a former life. But what I learned from these diverse past life regressions was
There are different ways to explore learning about your own previous incarnations. For me, one of the first experiences was through a dream. Other ways was through visiting other places and then experiencing a type of “waking dream” (or visualization) of that past era and the experience at that location These experiences were rather overwhelming and caught me off guard. Another method has been through discussions with John UK, my teacher and Guide, who shared some of my prior life experiences at the same time as myself.
The value in learning about your past lives is that it can sometimes help you understand why you have certain feelings or experiences in this current life. For example, I had a dream I had been shot in the back while riding a horse and then fell in the cold muddy ditch in what appeared to be autumn. The dream felt so real but it was not related to any aspect of my current life situation. The dream was about a past life experience when I was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War and had been shot and killed in that war. Knowing this background helped me understand why I had such strong feelings against war and conflict and also why kept on seeing the emotional scars of this war when I visited the southern states. It helped me understand why my feelings were so raw and seemingly more intense and out-of-place in comparison to those around me.
In another experience I had a waking dream when I was visiting a Spanish fortress on an Caribbean island and suddenly I felt myself going back in time and I literally could see myself as a Colonel in uniform with new black shiny boots. As I saw myself in this vision, I could see two daughters who were very well dressed in lacy pastel long dresses and I could feel a deep love for those girls. I could also feel the angst and manipulation from my wife in that past life relationship and could feel our mutual loathing. I knew in that split second past life encounter, I had married someone I didn't love and had done it for money and status. I was left shaken by who I was in this past life experience and felt rather disgusted with myself..
This glimpse into that past life helped me recognize my inability to now tolerate relationships that are filled with lies, manipulation, contempt, loathing, and self advancement. This deep personal repulsion of those traits and behaviors seem to be rooted from a personal experience in a past life that I instantly relived in that Spanish fortress in a matter of seconds.
The power of those feelings are even still awakened and seem real and tangible even now, even though the experience was well over several hundred years ago. This awareness of a past life did help me realize why I have zero tolerance and patience for negative and toxic relationships.
There can be some value in learning about our past lives. It can help us understand why we may have certain “buttons” or certain strong emotions in our current life. Sometimes it can help us understand our life path from an even greater perspective than what we have in our current life window. Another thing is may provide is an opportunity to visit that past life and bring or direct spiritual energy that may be used to help comfort or help make better decisions than what you made in that first pass-through.
One of my very first experiences in an earth center provided me with an experience with a past life regression. I was engaged in a meditation in the San Rafael Swell in Southern Utah. I went into my meditation and saw several Native American women engaged in some type of ritual or dance just a few yards in front of me. I knew they were not from this time. I saw them look at me and were startled, which also told me they saw me as well. I then waved and said "hi". The whole experience only lasted a few minutes or maybe even less. I came out of the meditation and what I had seen was now gone.
John U.K., my Spiritual Guide and Teacher, said this had been a past life regression. I was able to connect to these people who were engaged in a spiritual activity at this same site several hundred years ago. This happened because I was at an earth energy center, I was engaged in a spiritual activity (meditation), and some how tapped into the energy frequency of this past event and with this group of people. These people were also at this same earth energy site and were also engaged in a spiritual activity (a ritual). For some reason we connected for that brief moment. Perhaps because we were all ready for this type of experience.
At this location is an ancient petroglyph that records this experience (as well as others) with this Native American group. The petroglyph shows a group of people engaging in an ritual and using the energy of the kundalini to experience an "out of body" type group experience, or an astral travel event. The group saw a distant figure (red arrow points to that image) represented by a small figure in the distance with wings, which is a symbol representing not of this time.
The chakra energy associated with this area was closely tied and associated with the third chakra. The spiritual gift associated with the third chakra is past life regression. I was able to travel to another point in time in the past and they were traveling to a point in their future.
This was my first experience of this type at an earth energy center and it demonstrated how different spiritual gifts can be tapped into and experienced at an earth energy site.
John U.K. introduced us to a visitor from ancient Egypt. This man was a barber. I jokingly asked him if he would be willing to cut my hair and he agreed. He didn't ask for scissors - he took a candle, lit it, and then guided the flame along the bottom of my hair to singe it. This was how hair was cut in ancient Egypt and he expertly did this without burning me.
This whole experience was so secular in nature. It wasn't a spiritual experience at all. And, it was so unexpected.
The lesson I learned from this experience was how anyone along the continuum of time could be brought in. I also became aware of how even the past felt like it was "now". I also was starting to see how everything is connected.
This was a brief moment, but a seed became planted in this encounter. I am now aware this interaction to this ancient past helped us connect the energy of the new Prime Radiant way back to that ancient time. It seems all these brief meetings had a greater purpose than I originally understood.
I was introduced to William Wells by a person who called herself the Quesaksaderak (I later learned this was me in the future, but at this time, I had never heard the term before). At this introduction, I was informed that William was a writer who in his former life, lived in Russia near Siberia. But later, I learned he was also a “Harmony” and had come from beyond the Tao, another place entirely. William was able to share my husband's physical body, and while doing this, was able to share information with me as if he was a physical person.
One day we were taking a drive down Utah's Weber Canyon and William started to tell me the history of the railroad in this canyon. At first I thought he was bringing up small talk to help me become more comfortable in his presence, but what he really was doing, was showing me the depth and breadth of sensing skills mixed in with a type of past life regression.
William and I were driving through a canyon near Morgan, Utah told me the stories of the engineer, the foreman, and the owners of the railroad along with their many conflicts and personal stories to get the railroad completed. He talked about the problems with the terrain and river as well as the deadlines and power struggles between the different parties. He knew the names of the people working on the railroad in this canyon, almost as if he was seeing it take place in real time, right there. He related their conversations, fears, and feelings while we drove down the canyon. I was captivated because it felt like he was telling me the details of a movie he was watching.
We continued our drive, passing the location where the golden spike was placed to mark the transcontinental railroad, but as we continued our drive, William continued the story because there had been two parallel tracks that went beyond where the golden spike ceremony took place. He shared how the men on the upper side of the hill would pee on the men on the lower track and then how those men would get back at them and sabotage the rails on the upper side of the hill.
In one of the areas he pointed out a ledge where the competing railroad had once been. There apparently had been a parallel railroad running above this railroad. William pointed to the current railroad and said “the men working here were being harassed by the workers above them. There is a competing railroad right above this one. The workers who were higher up on the hill would pee on these workers to get them to stop their work. There was much anger and strife here.”
William’s demonstration of being able to sense people’s conversations, emotions, and energies of those who had long gone was a more finely-tuned sensing gift than I had ever seen or heard was possible. John UK had told me that the energy of a person's presence could be felt by someone who was in tune to such energies. I had no idea of the degree and depth this sensing gift could reach. I had assumed it was just a part of those who were living, but William demonstrated that these energies can linger and last a long, long time. I also learned that a person could sense just beyond impressions - a person could use any of their senses (seeing, smelling, hearing, etc) in this process.
In addition, because William was a nonphysical being, I learned that the spiritual development skills one develops on the earth are taken with the soul when they die. These gifts don't die with the physical body. The connection with William provided me with a broad range of lessons, just in this simple encounter.
One of the things that has changed over the years, is that my meditations have become more central in my life. Sometimes my meditations may be taken over by another force, like the kundalini energy, or Gaia, for example. Sometimes my meditations will be used as the window of communication with a Spiritual Being from another plane of existence. And sometimes, my meditations may include a type of "meet and greet" experience, like when I met my Granddaughter, or a "fly by" experience where I meet someone projecting from another time period.
This is from a "fly by" experience. In this meditation, someone named Mark “popped” into my meditation. I remember commenting to him this was 2010, June. I had the impression he was coming from 50+ years from where I was in my time. He wanted to connect with me, aka Quesak, and was doing a meditation projection or past life regression and we connected during this meditation.
The experience was rather brief, surprising, and unexpected. I recall asking how he seemed to know me. He was surprised by my question because of all my “breadcrumbs” - various blogs, website, and book(s). I then wondered who from my family would have carried this information on and couldn’t think of anyone other than my sister Trish, who has been part of my journey. Or maybe my son who said he would keep the sites active. Anyway, the connection and interaction was brief, then gone. It was what I call a "fly-by".
