One of the things people crave most in life is to find their soulmate or life partner. One journalist, Estelle Erasmus, credits a past-life regression with helping her to find her husband.
Erasmus recalls being single and frustrated when she was invited to a presentation being given by a hypnotist that specializes in past-life regression. Being someone who is always willing to try something once, Erasmus agreed to go. When the hypnotist asked if someone were willing to have a past life regression as a demonstration to the group, she was quick to volunteer.
Erasmus was surprised by what happened next. She told the hypnotist she wanted to figure out why she always picked emotionally unavailable men, and why she often felt suffocated by the idea of being in love. The hypnotist had her relax and took her back to the lifetime that had the answer to her questions.
She felt her awareness shift and literally felt herself as a man in Massachusetts during colonial times. The man’s name was Jonah, and he was in love with his sister-in-law. Since he didn’t want to hurt his relationship with his brother or sister-in-law, he didn’t tell her. His own wife had recently died from scarlet fever and he had never gotten over it.
The hypnotist then fast-forwarded to the last day of Jonah’s life. Jonah was at that point an old man dying of heart disease. He was trying to tell his sister-in-law that he had always been in love with her but she didn’t want to hear it.
The hypnotist brought Erasmus back to her current life and asked her why that past life experience was relevant to her current life. Erasmus had the answer. She knew that because of that past life in which she had lost everything, she chose emotionally unavailable men that she had to fix. Also since Jonah had been too afraid to share his true feelings in that past life he had shut his heart down.
Erasmus believes that remnants from that past life were still affecting her in her current life.
It’s one thing to believe a past life regression helped you, and another thing to see proof. In an essay she wrote for Your Tango, Erasmus believes she has proof that it worked, as after the regression she began dating healthier men and not long after that she met her husband.
