During Age Regression, one is taken backwards step-by-step through the present lifetime; first to events that occurred a few years ago, then to college days, to school days, to early childhood and finally to the stage when the person was in the mother’s womb. Though most problems have their roots in past lives, the majority of these problems are repeated during early childhood. This happens because problems, which have their origins in past-lives, repeatedly get presented till they are solved. A look at the events which happened in the early years of the present lifetime will therefore give us an idea about the past life patterns and problems that the person has brought into this life.
The minds of children from birth to early teens, particularly during the preschool years, can easily form lasting impressions and hence are susceptible to conditioning and programming. Due to this, a child’s mind is open and vulnerable to suggestion. Any information that is presented to the child, particularly if it is repeated several times, will be accepted as a fact without any questioning on the part of the child. Recent research even indicates that music; voices and other outside sounds and conditions during the last few months of pregnancy affect a baby’s mind.
Many of the problems involving poor self-image and lack of sense of self-worth have their root cause in events that occurred during ones early childhood. Various problems like health problems, eating disorders, certain kinds of learning problems, failure patterns, phobias and behavior problems can be traced back to thoughtless words and actions directed towards young children. In a similar manner, success, positive attitudes and self-confidence can result from positive attitudes expressed to young children. An example will make this clearer.
There once was a little girl who was dancing all by herself at home when her mother returned from a very stress-filled days work. The mother was not in a position to appreciate the beauty of her child’s dance, as she was feeling very exhausted and drained. In this low state she told her child “the way you dance is horrible.” She did not actually mean it, as she loved her child dearly. Ever since that day, the child never danced again. This was the beginning of a downward spiral for the child. She started becoming more and more aloof and withdrawn. Her performance at school started deteriorating. Fortunately, as she was approaching the end of her schooling, her condition was noticed by one of the teachers who took her to a past-life-regression therapist. The therapist worked with the girl and, with the help of regression, was able to identify this childhood block in her. He then helped her to remove this childhood block. The girl then went on to become a very good dancer!
In the above case, had not the block been removed, the world would have lost an exceptionally talented and gifted dancer, not to speak of the tremendous suffering that such a block would continue to cause the person till the end of her life. The story shows us in no uncertain terms the damage that we are capable of causing to young children through our thoughtless words and actions. The unfortunate part is that most of the time we are not even aware that our words and actions are creating blocks in them resulting in unseen and untold damage.
