I was asked by a TG friend about hypnosis and Past-life Regression. She said my reply, my experience greatly helped her. So here is that reply---
Yes, I have explored many of my past lifetimes, more than I can remember, but I do remember my last lifetime which has had a strong influence on this life. If you know of Edgar Cayce, when he gave a life reading he would sit and go into hypnosis or trance and tell his assistant or the client what he saw. My modus operandi is to lay down and go into self-hypnosis and go to a past lifetime to answer a specific question. I have been to my last lifetime several times to answer questions about what and why it relates to my present lifetime.
In the present life I was born in Evansville, In. In my last lifetime I was born in Crawfordsville, IN. I first saw myself playing on a long porch wearing a white frilly Sunday dress. I was an only child and lived with my mother. There was no father in the picture. Later I was to discover I had a sister, but she died when she was struck by a car while running from behind a parked vehicle. i found out my name, when I was born and when I died. (I was to meet her again in this life while working in Brooksville, FL.)
I move to later in that lifetime where I was a salesgirl in Chcago, ILL, working at Macy's Dept Store. I sold ladies' dresses. I was just an everyday working girl who never married. I loved the beautiful clothes which I could not afford, but I used to sneak them home and model them in front one of those full length mirrors that would tilt. That was exciting to me. In one of my past-life episodes I asked to see what I looked like. When I looked at myself in the mirror I saw this beautiful blonde-haired woman looking back.
I was a heavy smoker as was my mother who died from lung cancer. I believe I was in my 30's when I wound up in a hospice in Chicago where I too died from lung cancer. (Of course they weren't called hospices back then.)
So how has this affected my life today? I don't smoke, never really did, even though I toyed with it. I always hated it growing up when both of my parents smoked. I used to dress-up and was drawn to women's clothes all my life. I had good taste in clothes and used to buy on occasion my girlfriend's and my wife's clothes which they liked and wore. I was drawn to the old-fashioned under-garments of nylons, garter belts, etc.
I have thought alot about that lifetime and how inter-connected it is with this one. I did check with the county recorder’s office and telephone book in Crawfordsville and found relatives with the same surname still living there. After I died in that past life, I was born into this one 4 or 5 years later.
In the lifetime previous to the one as a sales girl, I lived in Chicago with my wife and we owned a dry-goods store. I died from some kind of plague at the turn of the century. I probably have been female as many times as I have been male in my past lifetimes. Sometimes I don't feel male or female but more androgenous, which I believe is our true state in our Higher Self.
You are this first person to ask me about this since I wrote about it. I know that many of the M2F's have been women in their previous lifetimes and those subconscious memories and desires are influencing this lifetime and it causes them a lot of confusion, pain, and guilt, which if they only knew where it is truly coming from, they would be released from it. I know it has really helped me. I have been reluctant to share this publicly on PE or TGLife. Some people have a hard time coming to terms with these beliefs. But I have been doing Past-Life Regression hypnosis for 15 years and publicly, in group lectures for all those years.
I hope this helps. Please feel free to write again if you have any other questions and when you have your past life done, I would love to hear your story.
