I think regression hypnosis is a viable method for remembering past lives for some. If you look at the studies, it is compelling. That said, what the studies don't tell you is how many it doesn't work for. The case studies in the books are the must illustrative examples. Far more get much less detail or nothing at all.
I am not sure there is that much to be gained from such regression though, unless you have a heavy karmic pattern that knowledge of the karmic origin might help illuminate.
Regression into the bardo before this life seems like it might be more useful but again, it is very uncertain and if you have the good fortune to have gurus and bodhisattvas monitoring your work here in the saha world, case studies suggest that they often block such things if they think you aren't ripe for it.
Interesting. Where have you heard this?
And besides one's own qualifications for such regression, there is the fact that many such therapists aren't actually qualified for it either and you end up being led by the therapists own narrative and paying handsomely for it.
Yup, this is the real problem.
One of my own teachers discouraged it unless I felt it was really necessary for all these reasons.
I assume he would help you himself right?
