Special Interest Survey by Bernadeta Hodkova


Dear reader,

Last year, when we launched the Special Interest Survey to start mapping where your interests lie, we were amazed and inspired to read your many passionate responses. Many of you have special interest areas or you combine Regression Therapy with other techniques that have led to insights or novel approaches that other therapists might benefit and learn from. To that purpose we are inviting colleagues that filled out the survey, to write an article about the special techniques they use and/or combine with Regression Therapy. Read on for such an article, by Bernadeta Hodkova. We hope there will be many to come. If you haven’t yet completed the survey, you can do so here: EARTh Special Interest Survey .

Special Interest Survey.

At the very beginning I was curious about hypnosis, past lives and U.F.O.  I heard a BBC radio show I was about 10. It was a recorded hypnosis session, where the subject relived a past life scene of WW1 where he was shoot in the knee.  I heard the scream and it was real. I saw a huge bright orange UFO one summer night with my family when I was 6. It was just awesome. As a kid I spent lots of time outdoors, day and night, with animals, wild and domesticated, tracking, feeding, caring, observing. I could read divination cards and it was fun. I learnt and practiced a bit of a positive magic to start creating my own life. When I became mum I got reiki initiations and all begun rapidly coming together. Clinical Hypnosis, Past Life Regression and Current Life Regression Therapy, Life Between Lives regression trainings.  Shamanic healing – inviting spirit animals to help with healing – was part of my regression therapy training. It all took shape when I allowed myself the excitement of discovery of healing, self and other dimensions. And that happened thanks to the training with Andy Tomlinson, assisted by Hazel Newton and Alfonso Grosseto and of course my peer students (you know who you are, take it as thank you hug from me) at what was in 2008 Past Life Regression Academy U. K. I started practicing without hesitation and with huge excitement.

Nowadays I use card reading for myself mostly as a guidance or advice if I don’t dare to trust my intuition or if I feel I need support or understanding of circumstance in my life situation. It helps me to pull through difficult times and helps me to focus to direct my life. It’s a bit like a coach to me I guess. Sometimes I do readings for others, not regression clients though, and sometimes I do reading to see who is my next regression client as my preparation for their session. It’s my zoom into whatever I feel I want, need or should know.

 Reiki is a part of me so I use it all the time. When a baby cries in the supermarket, when talking to a person who feels down, even when teaching English. I also use it as protection for me and my family, on the road, on next day, on things in my past, on clearing spaces or preparing the therapy room, classrooms etc., and I send healing to people when requested. When I started learning regression therapy a new symbol came to my mind and hands and only later I figured it was a symbol for past life healing. So yes I use reiki in regression sessions of course. When the session is stuck. When things are not moving for the client. I use symbols into their chakras, third eye and solar plexus mostly, and also the ground chakra in healing connection with their physical body. I don’t need to tell them especially unless they ask or they feel it or do reiki themselves. All my clients know well that I practice reiki. I think I am reiki rather than do reiki

 Occasionally I use crystals from other parts of the Earth but I prefer local rocks and stones, next to the client or in my hands, often clients pick one of those to hold during their session. I do not think about it much, it’s just something we are part of nature and nature helps to put things in balance.  Some are like beings, some function as channels or conducts, all are part of us and we are part of them. I prefer fresh plants to essential oils for support, protection and clearing. My own grown roses, sage, bay leaf, mint and lavender are always present in my therapy room, but also bark or various tree branches, feathers, shells… When I teach I bring those local ones to the classroom. Some rocks have already become iconic for my students  

 Shamanic healing with spirit animals is according to my clients very favorite part of regression therapy sessions.  It is a simple technique where I bring the clients to connect with a spirit animal that can help them with their specific healing. Mostly when working with the body memory, where their energy is stuck in muscles, organs. Spirit animal can also act as a spirit guide for them. These spirit animals are not the same as totem animals, they just come for the session and help heal that specific problem. Their powerful specific energy becomes one with the client. They help with for example freeing the past life body, with physically defending against the past life oppressor, cleaning the wounds or attaching newly found past life body parts. Clients often have various spirit animals to deal with various wounds, they say the animal is real physical. Clients feel super empowered by their energy and often keep their vibes, image and presence even after the sessions. Spirit animal represents to us the part of us that had been asleep. So by bringing these spirit animals into clients’ session they make their own dormant part into life and action once again. And so they themselves re-activate their capacity to defend themselves, or become well grounded in their body for example. Spirit animals are huge self-help aid. They empower, give courage, confidence but also gentleness, overview or peace.  

This is my little bundle of techniques and tools I carry around and use and share as needed. They fit with who I am, where I am and what I do on Earth right now. 

In my experience and in my practice I see that none of us today’s therapists are novice healers. We all have already experienced so many healing techniques in our past lives, on this planet and elsewhere. At some points of our soul history (not sure how to put the soul eternity in perspective) we have already learnt how to heal with light, sound, plants, elements, various energy bands yet unrecognized on Earth at this time. We’ve done it. Come up with them today and integrate them with who you are today. Regression therapy is only one of them. If it stays alone in our practice, we would not be using our soul potential. 

Out of free will of all, for good of all and with harmony with the Universe.

Regression therapy is entering the psychiatric field in Suriname

Regression therapy is entering the psychiatric field in Suriname

Dr. Camla Nannan Panday-Jhingoeri

While I was in Suriname in February this year I had the honour to be present at the promotion of dr. Kamla Nannan Panday-Jhingoeri. This psychiatrist became a ‘doctor of medical science’ because of her study of working with ‘Transpersonal regression therapy’ with psychiatric patients. In her dissertation she describes 20 cases of patients with whom she successfully worked with Transpersonal regression therapy.

Patients felt helped by a treatment that was open to ideas that in their cultural backgrounds are common, like reincarnation,

influences from ancestors, spirit possession and ‘helping entities’. While dr. Kamla Nannan Panday-Jhingoeri explained at her promotion these things can be seen as metaphors, she emphasizes the importance of using a pluralistic approach in the treatment of psychiatric problems in Suriname.

Dr. Kamla Nannan Panday-Jhingoeri was trained by the Dutch past life therapists Rob Bontenbal and Ronald van der Maesen in Suriname. Ronald van der Maesen was present at the promotion asnwell.

The study will probably be published in Dutch soon and hopefully in English later. For now we are thankful to Dr. Nannan-Panday she has agreed to share the summary of her study with us, available to you through this link.

Using the 5 tools of Ayurveda, (diet, lifestyle, herbs, yoga and massage) I work holistically with clients to support them through lifestyle and diet changes within the confines of a busy family life – and where clients need to get to the heart of unexplained physical, emotional or spiritual issues, I offer Hypnosis, Past Life Regression, Inner Child Healing and Spirit Release.

Originally completing my Ayurvedic Therapy training under Dr Deepa Apte at the Ayurveda Pura Academy in London, I soon began to discover how unresolved issues and emotions were affecting my clients’ physical health. Many times I’d find completely forgotten memories tucked away in back pain or unexplained knee problems, tinnitus, eczema etc. etc. These would then disappear as soon as we released the unresolved energy/emotion. This led me to train further with the Past Life Regression Academy under Andy Tomlinson and it has been astonishing how effectively and quickly a combination of Regression and Massage resolve health issues.

I now tailor holistic packages for clients who need a combination of massage therapy, regression and diet therapy – I offer free 20 minute telephone consultations if you would like to explore whether this would suit you.

I am based at Equilibrium Natural Health Centre in Corsham, Wiltshire but can see clients in their homes if preferred for an additional charge.

My Specialisms:
I specialise in Regression and “BODY WORK” — specifically how the energetic systems of the body (which flow through every organ) can become imbalanced by trauma, illness, drugs or simply childhood conditioning (sit still and be quiet!) and occasionally imbalances can originate as far back as the womb or even earlier. Very often the imbalance can be caused by energy NOT belonging to the client — so where clients have a heart-felt connection with someone, they can often absorb that person’s problems or someone’s negative comments for example. If you have any unexplained physical issues I would encourage you to explore Regression as I have seen many clients be completely transformed by this powerful therapy.

My Approach to Therapy & How I Work:
I am very scientific and analytical in the way I approach therapy, and originally, I was a huge sceptic with regard to “energy healing” and “past life regression”.

Then I had a client who was in her 20’s who changed all of that for me. She’d had endless tests and consultant appointments to find out the cause of her life-long knee pain but they couldn’t explain it. During massage, we discovered that she’d witnessed a traumatic event in her childhood, and in running to get help, her subconscious mind had somehow stored the memory of this traumatic event in her knee. I know it may sound crazy, but bear with me. The subconscious mind encapsulates traumatic events so that we can go on with our lives and soon the event is all but forgotten. In my client’s case, she did not even remember the event she witnessed until I discovered the body memory in her knee. When we accessed the memory and she was able to process it, she was completely and instantly healed. After that I tried Past Life Regression for myself for a pain I’d had in my shoulder since childhood. I always used to describe it like an arrow in my shoulder. And it was! We went back to my life as a Roman Commander and an assassination attempt. I never got over it and the pain has followed me ever since. Sometimes with clients I can trace the pain from life to life to life. The reason for this is that PAIN SERVES TO TEACH US SOMETHING and when we listen, the pain disappears. Coming back to my Roman life, the pain was to teach me about what it really means to be strong. In that life I thought that being strong was about being rigid and emotionless, but actually the opposite was true. In Regression I got the insight that true strength is about flexibility and being connected to those around us. And as soon as I made the connection, that pain was gone. Regression helps us to get profound insights about our current lives and offers us opportunities to resolve matters which we struggle with in our lives. I’ve seen many relationships changed, and difficult situations transformed as well as pain and ill-health healed through Regression.

What to Expect from a Session:
Current Life Regression and Inner Child Healing is used to access and resolve traumatic memories buried deep in the subconscious mind. Left unresolved they are triggered, causing uncomfortable feelings and thoughts, or disproportionate reactions to people or situations – for example PTSD symptoms. Regression is particularly useful where clients don’t want to talk about these painful experiences so light hypnosis is used and we go straight to the heart of the trauma in a moment and transform the situation to get resolution and healing with all parties involved in the spirit realms or Higher Mind. With more complex issues multiple sessions may be needed where layers need to be resolved, but each session is complete in itself and clients express relief and feelings of peace afterwards. A client reported having 25 years of continuous therapy and felt that she’d made more progress in a couple of session of Regression.

Past Life Regression is used to access memories from our previous incarnations to gain understanding about situations and challenges in this life. This is especially true if we notice unexplained or irrational reactions to events or circumstances or we encounter repeating patterns throughout this life. It allows a new perspective to be gained which enables blocks from the past to be released resulting in positive resolution on all levels. During a past life regression session you may also meet your guides or speak to the wisest part of your soul to gain understanding about:
•your current life purpose,
•why certain events have happened in your life,
•soul group members and understanding the role they play for you in this life,
•soul contracts and ties
•and also to release unresolved energy or emotion being held in the body manifesting as pain or illness.

For clients with ongoing issues I offer packages which include a tailored combination of Regression, Hypnosis and Ayurvedic therapies which are discounted. Please call for more information as these are tailored to the client, so costs will vary.
