Are You Anxious? Are you worried for no reason?

Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Modification & Past-Life Regressions can help you heal.

Are you stressed? Constantly afraid? Are you anxious about your future?

Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Modification, and Past-Life Regression can heal a lifetime of anxiety.

Over the years, I’ve had many clients come to me to help them find the courage to pursue their dreams. It takes commitment and follow-through, but how can you do that if you’re afraid to leave the house without your phone? In Jonathan Haidt’s “The Anxious Generation,” he explains how the iPhone has crippled an entire generation.

Sometimes it’s more than that. Crippling anxiety robs you of your ability to enjoy the present, and it keeps you stuck in place, afraid to act.

Here is a client who came for help.

Peter was 22, tall, sandy-haired, and handsome when he called me for help.

“I’ve always felt afraid,” he said. “It makes no sense.”

His mother is a psychologist, so Peter had to take an array of anxiety medications for most of his life. He hated being on drugs because they dampened down his real emotions, and they were useless.

He dreamed of being a screenwriter, so he moved to Los Angeles. He also realized that he needed the courage to succeed in Hollywood. But self-doubt, fear, and anxiety stopped him at every turn, and he felt overwhelmed, frustrated, and exhausted by it. He was desperate to change.

Born in Washington, DC, Peter’s parents worked for the US government in different capacities, and he was raised in comfort, security, and abundance. Because he is an only child and a late child, his parents fall into the hovercraft/helicopter parent variety, so I thought that might be the source of his near-crippling fear. But I was wrong, as we learned in his first Past-Life Regression.

Peter, who had severe OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), was one of my A+ students. In his first session, when I explained brain function to him and how his own thoughts were reinforcing his anxiety, he learned to shout “stop!” to his own OCD brain-looping and get control of his thinking. He did the homework, learned how to re-focus his thoughts away from his fears, and got relief.

In his second session, he learned how to go deep down into his “hidden brain,” calm down his terrified inner three-year-old, and be kind to his angry, inner-thirteen-year-old. But his feelings of anxiety persisted. In the third session, when I did the regression, he was ready to investigate its origins.

After taking him down into a deep theta-state, i.e., hypnosis, I asked him to walk through an imaginary door; I tapped on his forehead and said, “Look at your feet.”

“They’re black!” he said. “I’m a boy; I’m five!   Wow!”

“Where are you?” I asked.

“I’m in Africa! I’m with my daddy!

“Is your daddy carrying anything?” I asked.

“He’s carrying a spear! We’re hunting.”

“Are you carrying anything?”

“Yes! A stick!”

And then everything shifted – he started to shake in terror.

“Oh, my god! I’m being dragged away! A lion got me! My leg! My leg! I’m in so much pain!!

“Float above! I said, “Float above! You feel no pain!

Peter floated above, i.e., pulled himself out of the body, and then watched as the lioness dragged his little boy’s body back to feed her cubs. Then he watched as his father, paralyzed with fear at seeing his son killed, simply slinked off and away from his tribe, never to return out of shame. But that left his wife wondering what happened to her son and husband.

I took Peter back to the beginning of that lifetime, and he saw that his mother in that lifetime was a childhood friend, Kelsey, a girl he’s known all his life. He’d always been in love with her, but because of his shyness and his anxiety disorder, he’d never let her know his true feelings. It made perfect sense to him because he saw the source of his strong feelings:  she was his mother in that brief lifetime.

Once Peter saw understood, the cause of his genuine fear and anxiety, he was able to simply let it go. That session helped to make him brave enough to pursue his dreams and go after the girl he really wanted.

We did more Past Life regressions, and in one of them, Peter saw himself in ancient Rome standing on a podium in front of the Senate.

“What are you doing there?” I asked.

“I’m lying to the people. It’s my job! I’m just like Fox News now. Lying to people to manipulate them.”

In that lifetime, he was rich but so ashamed. He despised what he did for a living. He was married to a woman who hated him and had children he didn’t care about.

When I asked him to find his favorite slave, he gasped.

“It’s my father in this life! And he is wise, and I ignore his advice.”

“What did you learn in that life?”

“Lack of integrity leads to despair. And I was a coward. I was afraid to stand up to power. I had no courage and no integrity.”

When he returned to room awareness, I joked, “It’s always good to travel with your staff!”

Helping Peter claim his power and go after his dreams was my job, and he made it easy. He believed he had a purpose and knew he could make a difference. He’s a very successful writer, using his belief in past life to sell scripts.

A belief in Past Lives and reincarnation shows up in all religious beliefs. From pre-history, Neanderthals, the thousands of gods and goddesses, and even the Sky-Gods.  People believe that we all come around again and again with the same group of souls to learn different soul lessons. Brian Weiss, MD, Michael Newton, PhD, and my teachers say we have the same 200 souls. Who knows? I vote with the Taoists who say: “Those who say don’t know. And those who know can’t say.”

We’re all here to discover our purpose and to make a difference. Do you want to die and think: “Damn! I had a chance to make a difference, but I didn’t even try?”

Please call me if you need help finding your purpose and passion. My own soul purpose? It is to help people who ask for help.
