The conscious and subconscious mind
The conscious mind is the part of our mind that we use for reasoning - it is able to be critical, analytical & rational. The subconscious mind is none of these things, and it accepts and stores all information that comes to it as the "truth"... No judgment or analysis - just total acceptance. This is the part of the mind that is unaware, and our conscious mind operates without our conscious perception of all that is stored in the subconscious, as well as the way it affects our emotions, thoughts and behaviors.
Suggestive and Regression Therapies
All that has happened in our lives before the present - our experiences, conditioning & resulting beliefs are accepted as the truth by our subconscious.
Suggestive hypnotic theory holds that knowledge of these past experiences and conditioning is not necessary for getting freedom from negative programming that is causing problems for the person in the present. Suggestions are given to the subconscious mind which is more sensitive to accepting them in the hypnotic state. For suggestions to be accepted by the person's subconscious mind, they must be reasonable, acceptable to the person and in that person's best interests.
Regression therapy theory, like classical psychoanalytic theory, holds that one method to changing problematic belief systems involves uncovering these belief systems and their origins to work at the root of the problem. Thus, making the unknown known to the person paves the way for positive change to occur. Under hypnosis, we have access to the subconscious which remembers everything, through all time and space. We can remember where we put our keys that are currently lost, things that happened when we were a toddler, life in utero, our birth, previous lifetimes and the space in between them. Through this memory, we are empowered to make corrections to unhelpful emotional, cognitive and behavior patterns that sprang from our experiences through time.
Past Life Therapy
Past Life Therapy is an extremely effective psycho-therapeutic method to work through and resolve difficult and persistent problems. It is a tool for the client and therapist to use to explore deeper parts of the client psyche, thus allowing the client to understand his or her deepest problematic experiences and resulting beliefs as well as the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual consequences of these beliefs. It helps one to profoundly comprehend the mind-body-spirit connection, and how we are each responsible for creating our own universe for our greatest spiritual growth. The goals are an integration of understanding of our own mental, emotional, physical and spiritual processes; increased ability to live to the fullest in our present life; increased ability to participate in the creative process of our lives; understanding of our connectedness to the universe; and a sense of balance, groundedness & happiness in the present moment.
In past life regression therapy, we can quickly and exactly locate the origin of problems that are disrupting our life in the present. This is done with the guidance of the subconscious which remembers everything and is actually able to guide us to resolution.

Many Lives Many Masters
by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
you are new to the idea of Past Life Therapy, this is an excellent
read. It is the true story of a prominent main stream psychiatrist, his
young patient, and the accidental Past Life Therapy that changed both
their lives. Beginning as a total skeptic, Dr. Weiss travels an amazing
path that leads to healing and spiritual growth for both himself and
those who flock to him for help. His courage in writing this book when
the espousal of such beliefs might have lead to professional scorn by
his colleagues is truly commendable; all of us have him to thank for
helping to bring psychiatry and therapy so far down the road of
progress. Thank you Dr. Weiss! -Deirdre
