The fact is hypnosis is very poor evidence of a past life. The mere suggestion that there was a life before our current one plants the seed for our unconscious minds to create a past life for us. Is it real? Did we really live that life? Possibly, but there is little evidence to suggest it.
However, the regression that hypnotherapists use the most is age regression. This is our ability to retrieve old information from our unconscious mind. Everything that happens to us in our life is recorded in our unconscious mind. Some of the information is filed deep away, but is still accessible. Through age regression the client is able to find those memories, or that information that was "lost". In this way, the client may find rational explanations for behaviors that may seem irrational.
For example, a client dealing with over-eating may remember several times when as a child they went to bed without dinner. This may have caused a desire to "fill up" at meal times in order to not go to bed hungry.* By dealing with the situation in hypnosis, they can understand their unhealthy behavior and make progress towards healthier eating habits.
Both age and past life regressions are perfectly safe for the client. The client may feel elation from happy memories, and sadness from unpleasant memories, but there is nothing in hypnosis and regression that is harmful in any way, shape, or form to the client.
Achieve your goals, be healthy, find your own wellness, and above all have joy in your life! Happy Holidays!
