Soul Retrieval by Janet Cunningham

by Janet Cunningham

Practitioners of past-life therapy and research often report a perceived empathic bond with their clients during their sessions. It is not all that unusual for a therapist to report knowing what a client was experiencing before s/he actually described it verbally. Nor is it unusual for a client to report feeling the presence of the therapist during the past-life experience. In this article, the author presents an interesting extension of this, in that she felt obliged to enter into the client’s experience. The description of what occurred leaves us with perhaps more questions than answers.
Past-life therapy has broadened over the years as a result of the pioneers (APRT members and researchers at the forefront of the field) who have been open-minded and willing to learn from clients. As a result we are, hopefully, less likely to make quick judgments about what a past-life regression may entail. APRT therapists and researchers have learned that past-life therapy may involve (1) a past-life issue that was not resolved, (2) an issue that began in the womb or infancy—prenatal or perinatal, (3) repressed childhood memories of sexual and/or other forms of abuse, (4) psychic opening and experiences of the paranormal, (5) dialoging with an unborn fetus after abortion or with a deceased relative, (6) processing a near-death experience, (7) entity attachment, and/or (8) alien abduction. It is not uncommon for a therapist to begin a “typical” past-life regression, and to find himself with a very different set of circumstances than expected.

Diba Ayten Yilmaz Publications


“This is the first book in Turkish which explains how regression therapy works.  Book includes nearly 80 case studies of Diba’s regression therapy work including follow-up results. These case studies are the real stories of the persons who resolved their current problems by regression therapy. Diba has chosen her different cases and put them under titles such as “choices and truths”, “part of the ego in soul journey”, “soul searching for the balance”, “relationship problems”, “transforming the childhood influences”. Some of the cases are very short (one paragraph), some are long ( 1-2 pages). So the reader may have a wider perspective of understanding life and death and karma.  The book is a guide to comprehend deeply the human soul and his eternal journey. The aim of the book is; being a door to open to the reader’s own eternal journey.”

Past life regression therapy, as described here, is a therapeutic technique that uses similar strategies and commands to hypnotic age regression (following a time line backwards, talking to the regressed persona etc) but which also draws strongly from Jung’s waking dream technique of active imagination and the embodied re-enactments of past events called by J.L Moreno, psychodrama (Woolger, 1996). As in hypnotic regression and psychodrama, the patient is guided back to and encouraged to relive traumatic scenes or unresolved conflicts from the past that have been previously inaccessible to consciousness, but which are thought to be influencing and distorting current mental and emotional stability. But instead of being regressed solely to the patient’s childhood, a strong suggestion is also given to “go to the origin of the problem in a previous lifetime”. In other words, the notional time-line is extended backwards to assume the soul’s continuity with previous existences via what some have called the soul memory or “far memory”. In many respects the rationale of past life therapy is similar to that of post traumatic stress therapies as well as to the cathartic or abreactive approach taken, but later abandoned by early psychoanalysis (Hermann, 1992).

Five Past-Life Therapy Cases by Hans TenDam


by Hans Ten Dam

The Case of the Classy Lady

The patient is an attractive woman, rather well-known in her country as a presenter on radio and, lately, television. She suffers from burning belly-pains since she was around 15. Asked what she would do when the pains would have been gone, she says she wants to take her children to the zoo.

The only times she has been free of pain are the weeks around her menstruation and the months of her pregnancies. Life is only bearable by smoking and drinking too much, especially just before performances. She had several surgeries, but each surgery leads to complications that make new surgery necessary. “Men destroy my life.” The therapist, being a man and not planning any sex change, threads wearily with this patient, one of his first.

Six sessions give only marginal results. In the seventh, images surface of a teenage girl on a railway platform. Everything is shabby and the train is unbelievably crowded. She is Jewish and arrives at a concentration camp, probably Auschwitz. She is staggered, not by what is happening around her, but by “Why is this is all happening tome?” Being a resourceful girl, she spots a smaller line waiting for a barrack with a Red Cross on it. She slips from her own line into that line. Then she finds herself as subject of medical experiments. They are operating on her genitals, apparently creating a cloaca (characteristic of the most primitive class of mammals). Pain-killers are insufficient and she dies, probably from infection, after long and terrible burning pains. Read more
