A good bye from our Ex­-President…

by Athanasios Komianos


Even though our convention ended in great success the Exploration of Extraordinary Experiences is still going on. It started at the official opening night of our convention when I tried to share with you my classification of paranormal experiences in a chart called Atlas of the Paranormal. It is now available in the Authorized area of our Download Section under the category of Workshop Handouts. You have to login to access it. After a wonderful break by this extraordinary Irish dancing group, people did split up and shared their most extraordinary experience in the respective groups according to the major categories. There was the ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) group where matters of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition where the predominant ones. Then the Mind over Matter group where phenomena from micro PK (Psychokinesis) and macro PK to poltergeist and materializations were mentioned. Further, on the Soul Survival group where issues like OBE’s, NDE’s, Possessions, Attachments, past­life memories, xenoglossy and other phenomena suggestive of the survival of consciousness after death were dealt with. Another group concerned the Space Time Paradoxes like time slips, time travels, déjà vu and other related phenomena. Read more

Déjà vu

by Athanasios Komianos


Of all the so­ called paranormal experiences the déjà vu feeling is the most common one. Seventy percent of all people have had this sense at least once in their lifetime. I have a question included in my intake interview. It goes like this: “have you ever experienced a paranormal experience?” Most of my clients are reacting negatively on this question as if their sanity is under questioning. Psychiatrists have a major contribution into this stigmatization of psychic experiences. Anyway, once this question is modified and becomes more specific, the reactions differ. I ask them, “Did you ever have the feeling of having seen something before, like the déjà vu?” then most of them react positively. That is the gateway to enter to the so­called paranormal. “Have you ever thought of someone who then suddenly called even though he had months to do so”, the answer is also positive into a lesser extent. Telepathy and other manifestations of the paranormal will be analyzed in other articles. Read more

The Land of the Fairies

by Athanasios Komianos

Dear Colleagues,


Sitting here at the Frankfurt airport, the city of our dear colleague Ulf, I decided to start writing my share to our next newsletter. It is time to do so before I land into the reality of a bankrupt country which rightly protests for the continuity of austerity measures which literally failed and worsened if not shattered its conditions the five last years. At this moment, I only have to give you my impressions of my first visit to Ireland. The people of this land are really very friendly and open to visitors and tourists. I was impressed of their hospitality, their sense of humor and vigor. Ireland is traditionally known as the land of fairies, leprechauns and a great variety of other worldly creatures. As you can see in the picture it is evident that a lot of wandering spirits and ghosts are visible in cemeteries. No wonder ghostbusting is a sport there. A hard working people of pride and great heritage. Read more

When these Christmas days approach most of us have in mind all these acts of give and take which are really wonderful and add a different tone to our daily lives. But it is not only Santa Claus or the Christmas tree that bears gifts under it, gifts can be found elsewhere and are always reciprocal. In my life, I have received wonderful gifts from lovely people and I am really fond of this. However, the very best gifts come when they are not expected from people that you could not even imagine. Two days ago I received a phone call from a lady that told me that we had had a session about three years ago and that because of this, her life had taken a radical turn to the better. She found the power to divorce her tormenting husband and lead a happy life on her own. As she was talking to me I could not recognize her voice, face or identity. When she finally reminded me who she was, I still had a difficulty recollecting the session. But for her, this was the turning point of her life. Read more

Dear Colleagues,


Indeed it has been a pleasure to have met all of you and I hope that stands both ways. The bad news is that the 5th World Congress of Regression Therapy is over. The good news is that most people loved it and it seems it was a really successful event. I am looking through the pictures taken by the photographer of our event, Flavio and I am impressed both of the quality of our event as well as the good spirits of our participants. Here you can review them on your own.
EARTh as the main organizer did indeed “teach” us a lot. This would have not been possible without the support of our sponsors and our partners. Thank you all for contributing to the success of this wonderful event. Read more

Reincarnation and Ecology by Athanasios Komianos

A Contribution to the Coming Generations 1


“As you sow, so shall you reap”


This is a call to all colleague regression therapists to contribute to a deeper and better understanding of our relationship to the environment in terms of reincarnation. According to all the incoming scientific data it is more than evident that human activities have a deep impact on Mother Earth. Homo Sapiens, is pushing the planet to its limits. What we do today has a direct and probably irreversible effect on the fate of the planet. We are poisoning the habitat of the coming generations. However, what most of us have never thought about is that it is we who will harvest the problems that we planted today. It will be us in different bodies, our future incarnations, that will reap the disasters in the future. Our descendants will be none else but we ourselves…

The most imperative contribution to our fellow humans is to undertake the task to share with them our findings with them. One hundred years after the publication of Col. Albert de Rochas’ findings in 1911, the “great grandfather” of regression research, we should come up with a compilation of our recent insights. We could even address this topic on the next World Congress by contributing and sharing our findings. Thus, we could clearly demonstrate to skeptic scientists that the cycles of life were always present and that our actions had always had an effect upon ourselves, our environment and our future. It is our duty to make our fellow humans realize that everything is interrelated and interconnected. Any action taken today has a direct impact on ourselves first, before it affects others around us, or the future.

[1] In no way do I intend to plagiarize or even reach the impetus of Ian Stevenson’s monumental work Reincarnation and Biology, which may be considered to be the single most decisive contribution to the acceptance of the concept of reincarnation by future generations. Read more

The Significance of Cross-Verification of Reviewed Past Lives by Athanasios Komianos



There is a tendency for the majority of professionals in regression therapy to overlook the importance of the association between revealed and relived experiences and real events. There are two major reasons for this. First, pioneers of our profession argue that what is essential and vital for our clients, is to achieve emotional relief and catharsis and to alleviate the presenting problem. If this goal is accomplished it should be of no interest to the therapist whether the client is imagining things or truly reliving a past life experience. Second, there are difficulties associated with the verification of the reviewed experiences compared to those of historical reality. How can one trace down events if the story is rooted far in the past when no proper records were kept? Also, we all know that most of our clients reveal emotional material, not names, dates, or historical details. This argumentation is sound and reasonable, and by leaving verification aside, the therapist is thus dispensed from credibility concerns and this makes his work easier.

However, a further issue complicates things a little more: our clients’ personal view about their regressions. We all know that our clients have doubt about their own experiences. They question themselves about the reality of what they see or feel. The idea of reincarnation is foreign to them. They were never taught about it. “Is this all in my mind?”, or “did I make all this up?” are prevailing thoughts, especially for those who have two or three regressions (the average number of sessions for our clients). The natural tendency of an inquisitive human mind is to doubt the reality of these experiences (even for believers in reincarnation). Now when we, as therapists, are posing the question “…why did your imagination make up such a horrible story where you were a slave with a degraded life; you were condemned as a witch by the inquisition, and burned at the stake?” The answer is usually “hmm”… “Hmm” may be interpreted in a number of ways, but it seems to me that it symbolizes a wondering puzzlement. How could one validate a story without names, dates and places?   Is there a way out of this? For me there is. But let me first share with you a few cases before I expand theoretically. Read more

…and now please… Focus on Your Birthmark… by Athanasios Komianos


by Athanasios Komianos

Regression therapists use whatever means are readily available to them in order to tune in their clients with their presenting issue. They may focus o

port wine stains

n a physical pain, an emotion, a “catch-phrase”, a slip of the tongue and use it as an affect bridge.
In this paper I want to suggest using more of a technique (already in our arsenal), which I find fascinating (1). That is encouraging our clients to focus on their birthmark (or birth-defect). You will be surprised how many people around us have birthmarks (not moles).
Include a question in your intake form and if there is one, you may use it as a trigger to produce regression, if you think conditions are ripe and time is proper. Most of the time you will have wonderful results.

Could an Altered Vision Exist in an Altered State? by Athanasios Komianos

“With sight concealed our psyche views our body’s torments”.1


Could an Altered Vision Exist in an Altered State? by Athanasios Komianos


Abstract: The intent of this paper is to debrief some research done on alter personalities of Dissociation Identity Disorder, who display significant and measurable physiological differences, specifically, in the domain of vision.If such research has been done on MPD patients why would it not take place with our regressed clients who impersonate their former incarnations. Would it not be a challenge to do so and bring about visible results?

Mode of Therapy:

Hypnoscopesis. What is hypnoscopesis?

Hypnoscopesis is a concept that I developed in order on the one hand to broaden and enlarge the semantics of the concept of hypnosis and on the other to make it more specific. The idea sprang up as I was working with Altered States of Consciousness (ASCs). Others call them Exceptional Human Experiences and others yet call them mystical experiences.

That which is important for us is that these states of consciousness differ significantly from the ordinary forms of consciousness that we live in everyday life and they can be achieved or triggered by a wide variety of inductions. In our case though we are particularly concerned with hypnotic forms of induction.

The question arises what happens as soon as we reach hypnotic trance? We achieve inner insight. The Greek work for it is endoscopesis. Let us look at the explanation offered by a classic Greek Dictionary Helios: “It is a form of clairvoyance in which people that are in a hypnotic state, describe alterations or the presence of foreign bodies within their or somebody else’s organism”.

In modern terminology we would say that we have a “Search Engine” that sets forth to track down the root of our problem, that paradoxically, is most of the times very accurate and effective. The difference between hypnoscopesis and hypnosis, then, is that while in hypnosis we have a passive stance, in hypnoscopesis we have an active role and we wilfully participate in the direction of tracking down the root of our problem.

Some scientists in the past tried to bridge over the gap between hypnotists and psychoanalysts by coining the word hypnoanalysis. What they wanted to achieve was analysis through hypnosis. That attempt failed for two reasons. First, it was a time and energy consuming endeavor. Secondly, by definition it was an oxymoron scheme, simply because analytical thinking cannot exist when someone is in hypnosis.

On the contrary, hypnoscopesis is a more accurate term simply because endoscopesis is a complex and multi-dimensional procedure. At first, a heavy load of emotional and traumatic material is released producing a strong sense of relief. Then insight follows. Insight is an automatic process that cannot easily be put to words or described, but is of catalytic importance for our psychic balance and harmony. This psychological process is of imperative importance, (to my view it is far superior to mental processing) which, is finally leading us to the much desired catharsis.

So by coining this new word, hypnoscopesis, by no means do I intend to give the impression of a discovery or an innovation. It is well known that this technique was used abundantly in the Asclepeaums of antiquity the primary temples of healing. At those places the patients were encouraged by the priest-physicians to enter into the hollow depths of mother Earth which were around or in the temples of Asklepios so that during the night they would enter the sleep-like trance state which Greeks called enkoimisis. During enkoimisis the much-desired vision (the onar) came, a dream from the god of Medicine or a message from other gods, in which a specific and personal prescription for therapy would be offered. Ancient Greeks trusted the capacity of the human organism for self-healing. The duty of the priests was to interpret the visions and dreams in case the patients could not…
