Are You a Prisoner of Your Past?

Free Yourself! Forgive the Unforgivable!

Are you a prisoner of trauma in this lifetime? If so, you can free yourself now.


Cognitive Behavior Modification, Awareness Therapy, and Past Life Regression can help you heal. If you change your perspective on past trauma, even unforgivable events, you will heal the body, brain, and spiritual wounds that hold you hostage.

Think of this life as a place to hone your skill sets. You and your “advisors” set up “your curriculum” before you were born to teach you the qualities you wanted to learn. Unfortunately, sometimes those “learning opportunities” can be traumatic.

I work with many clients who’ve been sexually abused, and their “healing journeys” are specific and different from one to another, and no one technique works for everyone.

But for my client, Julia, Past Life Regression Therapy gave her the key that freed her from years of shame, blame, and anger.

Julia was 27 when I first saw her. Tall, blond, and blue-eyed, she looked like the quintessential California girl. She told me that she’d been on pharmaceutical drugs almost her whole life and wanted off them – now!

She very matter-of-factly explained that her father, a drug dealer, had been shot to death when she was seven. Her mother, also into drugs, lost custody of her because when the police searched her father’s computer, they found naked photographs of Julia. In addition, they discovered that her father made his living selling child pornography with Julia as his model.

After her dad died, Child Protective Services forced Julia to go from therapist to therapist, each insisting that she recount the “episodes of abuse.”  Each new therapist eagerly insisted that she re-live the traumatizing incidents until they became nothing but a boring “show and tell” for Julia. She was shamed by them and encouraged to blame and demonize her father.

As she grew older, she hated the psychiatrists who prescribed drugs and all her talking therapists but knew she needed help. That’s why she called me. She wanted to find another way to heal the anger she knew festered inside her.

In her first Past Life Regression, when she saw her birth and her father held her, I said, “Look into his eyes.”  And then I asked, “How do you feel about your new daddy?”

“I love him so much!” Julia said, and tears rolled down her cheeks.

“Does he seem familiar?”

“Oh, yes!”

“How does he feel about his new baby girl?”

“He loves me so much!”

So I knew she wasn’t born to an old enemy, which happens a lot.

Then I took her “back in time” and said, “Look at your feet!”

“They’re spit-polished, black wing-tips,” she said. “I’m tough; I’m Irish. I’m 28, and I’m so rich! I work on Wall Street, and I run with the Bulls. Money, money, money! It’s all I care about.”

There was a nasty edge to her voice as she continued to talk. Her name was Mike in that lifetime.

She described Mike’s body as being stocky and strong. His childhood was filled with poverty because his parents were straight off the boat from Ireland. But Mike was a prize fighter and fought to pull himself out of the teeming slums of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

He now lived on Park Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and was damned proud of it.

“Are you married? I asked.

“Yeah.  But she bugs me!”

“Let’s go home and find your wife. What’s her name?”

“Patricia. Bitch can’t do anything right. But she loves me so much! And even that annoys me!”  It didn’t matter what he did; he went on, and Patricia adored him. He said he was a womanizer, a liar, and a cheat; still, she forgave and loved him.

“Turn her around. Do you recognize her?”

Julia gasped. “Yes. It’s my dad.”

“Great. Now let’s go to the next pivotal experience.”

“I’m beating the shit out of Patricia. And I’m so strong. I’m really hurting her.”

“Why are you beating her?” I asked.

“She cooked my dinner wrong,” Julia said.

“Next pivotal experience?”

“Patricia’s dying.”

“Why’s she dying?”

“Because she’s given up on anyone ever loving her.”

“Next pivotal experience. What’s happening now?”

“It’s 1930, the stock market crashed, and I’ve lost all my money. I’m sitting alone at a bar. I’m drunk. No one likes me because I’m such a jerk, and I’m a mean drunk, too. I never had any true friends. Only business associates and guys to drink and whore with.   The only one who ever loved me was Patricia.”

“Next pivotal experience?”

“I’m alone in my flop house room, and I just put a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger.”

“Float above!” I said, “You feel no pain. Now, what did your soul need to learn in this lifetime with your dad?”

“What it feels like to love someone unconditionally and to have them betray you so brutally.”

“And do you think you learned that?”

Julia was quiet. Then finally, she said, “Absolutely.”

“Now, could you forgive your father for what happened in this lifetime? Can you release all the years of blame and anger?”

“Yes!” And she did. At that moment, Julia let go of twenty years of anger, blame and shame. She freed herself because she forgave “the unforgivable.”

When we went to the “In Between,” she saw her father was one of her guides and essentially volunteered to do her a service.

Julia is a healer; from my perspective, healers always seem to have the most “challenging” lives. But Julia is up to the challenge of this lifetime. Now she is happy and loved by a man who adores her. Julia’s freedom came with forgiveness; it freed her from the prison of anger and blame.
