Can mind-based complementary therapies like Regression Therapy and Hypnosis really help you in managing your life challenges?
In the testimonial story below, Anura, a vedic astrologer from Singapore details his inner journey to find healing for his father and himself through hypnosis and regression therapy. Often long-standing life challenges have their root-cause buried in a past life or in our youth in this life. A superficial explanation? Well, what counts in the end is the result. You see, when you have a safe space to explore your deepest thoughts freely and time to tell your heart-stories and be heard, it can be life changing. And in those moments when you become aware of the patterns created by those long-standing challenges and start to work on it using imagination, cognitive and spiritual potential, relief and healing can often be found. Thank you, Anura, for sharing your story. I have witnessed your journey getting to this point of clarity. It was frustrating, intense and downright painful at times. But you held onto your truth, values and beliefs and you were willing to shift your old mind-set. I know you are going to do awesome stuff in the future:) Blessings, Sheela
A Journey of Renewal through Ancestral Healing
In March 2018, I had an Ancestral Healing session done with Sheela and it turned out to be an eye-opening journey and had me in deep reflection for many days after that. Weeks prior to the healing, my father fell ill and I felt an overwhelming fear that I might be losing him. It was causing me an insane amount of stress and I wanted to find a way to heal it. During the session, Sheela got me into a relaxed state of mind and had me visualise my safe place. The calmness of that space was directed into my body and I went even deeper into hypnosis. This time I found myself in a forest facing a hut. Inside the hut, a white haired, bearded, fair old man was drawing charts onto a brown parchment or leaves. When the old man saw me, he acknowledged me by smiling. On closer look at what he was doing, I recognized it was connected to astrology. Sheela then prodded me to take a look at myself. I noticed I was a black bearded, middle aged male, tall and fair—very different from my current look. I then saw the past life version of me sitting under a tree and doing some calculations. On going nearer I could see him doing astrology charts and realized in my previous life, I had been an astrologer too. He muttered, "'Planets are manifestations of our energy. Changing within changes external circumstances." What was interesting was the fact that I could see and feel him gaze into the universe, put himself within the planetary systems and communicate with them! Sheela asked me to go closer and transmit what he knew into my present life awareness. In this moment, I comprehended that every one of us has the knowledge of the Universe within us but we must become conscious of its presence first and connect from within to access that celestial wisdom. As I focused on the past life version of me, he started to look sad and when asked why, he said he became an astrologer but his father did not live long enough to see him become successful. Sheela suggested I ask for the most successful moment in that past life and invite the past life father into it. The scene shifted and became a town in an ancient kingdom where I saw my past life self giving talks to a group of people on the energies of the planets. Then the father appeared and I heard him say that he was happy and proud of his son. This was all that the son wanted to hear. Looking at my present life simultaneously, I realized that I too constantly sought the approval of my father. In fact, I was afraid of losing my father without knowing that he was happy with me. At this moment, the soul of my father revealed he is always with me as I am his reflection but I started to feel very uncomfortable in my heart and realized the connection between us was so strong that it was trapping us both. My guides appeared this moment in the form of a monk and Kwan Yin and assisted me in untangling some of the energetic cords between my father and me. The monk told me that this was all due to my own fear that came from a different time and place. Sheela prodded me to ask my guide to show me where this fear came from. The monk took me to a dark and dingy place. I could not recognize where I was but felt an overwhelming fear, which I have never felt before in this life. Sheela then quickly guided me to come out of that dark space to find out what happened there. As my past life persona sat next to the monk shaking uncontrollably, I became aware that I had been a young man in my late twenties doing lots of solitary meditations. My guide smiled and said that during some of those meditations I had learned of some universal laws that I was not ready for. It was the remnants of those past life fears that I was dealing with now. At this point, Sheela nudged me to ask my guide of a time when I was fully confident and courageous about my knowledge. My guide took me to a time where I was an old sage. I was fearful for some reason but I went near him. All I could feel was his warmth and kindness. "I have been waiting for you," he said. He was very knowledgeable as he could see in depth into the future of the individuals he advised. Yet his suggestions and advices were measured and carefully given out. He looked very confident and I was guided to go near him to embody his qualities to bring it forth into this life. He mentioned that I was still attached to the soul of my father. I was surprised as I thought I had done enough cord-cutting. Now everything shifted energetically to another level. All I know was that my father was called in along with his Guides. Next Sheela asked me to call upon the Main Guides who have been looking after my father and myself. A group of 6 or 7 energy forms appeared. Then another round of cord-cutting was done in a most unusual way. By this time, Sheela had slowly pushed a giant teddy bear up against me to represent the intensity of the cord between my father and me. I had to push it away with my own strength. I remember it was one of the most difficult and tiring thing to do emotionally and physically. I finally felt how strong the cords between my father and me were. I understood this may not allow me to be who I am and to be on the path I needed to be in this life. Eventually, I managed to push away the teddy bear far enough for me to feel comfortable within my energetic space. Next, the Main Guides pointed out the Sun to me and told me to look at it as the visible God and that the answers I am seeking lie there. The Sun represents equanimity in the face of criticism as well as praise and I was to bring that energy into my body to energize it. As the session ended, I was tired out as it was the most intensive one I have had but what I learnt is that I need to take responsibility for my own life and make things happen. All I needed to do is follow my heart and serve others. What was surprising was the knowledge that I have held fear in me over many lives without realizing it. My guide had mentioned that it will be revealed to me step by step in order not to overwhelm me. I know now that I am more fearful of myself than anything else. I know I am blessed and need to reduce my negative mindset. It is also important for me to honour and express my Truth regardless of how others may react to it. I also need to learn to set boundaries with others. As an empath this is important as I am easily affected by the energies of others. Sheela helped me to come up with ideas how I could do this and maintain it. I realized that my relationship with my father had been rocky for years due to different perceptions and interference from others. Though I cannot voice this out to my father, I realized my relationship with him was far more important than the pettiness of external events that had caused a rift in our relationship. So from my side, it was time for me to bring my ego and sense of right and wrong down and try to heal my relationship with him with the time I am blessed to have with him. Incidentally, I guess due to the cord cutting, he seemed more positive towards me and I also felt less energetically intimidated by him. We can now sit down, talk and joke unlike in previous years. His health has also improved somewhat. I do realize that I am blessed and all I have to do is be an instrument to spread universal wisdom and the rest will be taken care of. When I shifted to this perspective, I saw changes in my life taking place. I am calmer and in a way have a sense of surrender which has brought me more peace. Others have noticed the same. - Anura, Singapore, 2018
