What is Regression Hypnosis, and What Can it Do For You?

Dr. Michael Newton (1931-2013) is often considered the father of regression hypnosis. He was an esteemed doctor of psychology, a master hypnotherapist, and the director of a mental health center and a spiritual renewal organization. He founded the Society for Spiritual Regression, now called the Michael Newton Institute.

During a hypnosis session, one of his clients visited the soul realm before her current life. Dr. Newton was intrigued, and he went on to develop his regression technique and hypnotize 7,000 clients in this manner. He wrote three best-selling novels, Life Between Lives, Journey of Souls, and Destiny of Souls. In the books, he discusses many cases where he used hypnosis to guide people to what he termed the gateway into the spirit world.

The interest in regression hypnosis has snowballed over the years, and other techniques have evolved. The sessions help people resolve issues from this life or before this life and answer many big questions about our existence.

Regression hypnosis might help you uncover the root cause of a problem. Once it is unveiled, the problem often loses its power over you, and you begin to heal. For example, after a painful breakup, you might learn that the experience was designed to teach you something. Maybe you wanted to learn to let go. Perhaps you needed to practice self-reliance. You might examine a traumatic event and release its hold on you and move on.

As a certified hypnotist, I used regression hypnosis with several clients, and I have been hypnotized by practitioners using different regression techniques. I especially enjoyed Best Lifeing’s method and gained far more in these sessions than ever before. I think experiences may be more varied in the Best Life-ing regressions because the hypnotized person sets an intention about what they want to pursue. During a Best Life-ing session, you are the guide, and the hypnotist will follow your lead. They might ask questions to help you expand your adventure.

A common fear people have about hypnosis is that the hypnotist will control them and make them do things against their will. I never saw that happen. In addition, some people think they can’t be hypnotized. Again, I never had that happen. Under hypnosis, you simply feel very relaxed, like you are mesmerized by a campfire or a waterfall. If you go very deep, you might feel even more relaxed, as if you are on the verge of falling asleep.

This type of hypnosis often allows you to see things from a larger perspective. It may leave you with a grander understanding of your life, your lessons, and your purpose. It might show you that your life is in order and everything is happening as planned.

Regression hypnosis can help you find closure after a loved one’s death. Frequently, people meet and talk to people who died. You might experience firsthand the bliss and peace you will feel when you die. Ultimately, it may eliminate your worry over someone’s death, ease your grief, and take the edge off your notion of dying. You may come to see death not as an ending but as a beginning. Souls often view it as going home.

Beyond solving problems, regression hypnosis might take you to a new level of growth and understanding. For example, one of the Best Life-ing group regression sessions showed us that some angels and guides wish to help save our planet. It was a thrilling and uplifting session that provided a sense of hope for the future.

The variety of experiences people have with regression hypnosis is vast. There are unlimited ways we get closer to enlightenment in our unique existence. I believe this is a powerful pathway.
