When my dad offered to give me a past life regression at the age of 16, I was depressed, suicidal, and constantly anxious. I’d been questioning everything in my reality for years. I went to every authority figure I could find to ask my larger-than-life questions.
Who are we? What are we doing here? What is the meaning of life?
I sought out priests, therapists, high school teachers, parents, and counselors, and no one, not even the priest seemed to have the answers I was craving. I felt alone, like an outcast that would never be understood.
Reprieve came in the form of a gift from my dad. It wasn’t a gift of material means, but of knowledge based on experience. An engineer by trade, my dad raised us to be Catholic and appeared very traditional, but he’s actually an open-minded old soul who studied past life regression on the side. When my dad offered to give me a past life regression, I had zero expectation it would help, but nothing else did until that point, so I was willing to try anything.
During an hour and a half long regression, I explored five different lifetimes. Lives where I was a slave, a monk, a shaman, a yogi. Lives where I was praised and persecuted. Despite my varied experience, I came away with two new truths.
One: reincarnation is real. I was not just the 16-year-old I looked at in the mirror.
Two: time is an illusion. At 16, I was able to experience all of those lifetimes in an hour and a half. With that past life regression, my dad opened my mind to a world within a world and began my shift in consciousness.
I felt called to write this article for one reason: to let you, the reader, know you’re not alone. Perceiving this reality in a different way doesn’t make you crazy, it just means you’re ahead of the curve for one of the greatest shifts in consciousness this Universe has ever seen.
Right now, humanity is going through a transition away from corruption, away from polarity, and away from the material world as we know it. This transition takes courage and the capacity to make a different choice.
So many humans are stuck in the pattern of self-sabotage, lack, and ultimately, suffering. I understand the depth of learning associated with the challenge is vast, but we no longer need to suffer in order to learn.
Through years of inner work, breakdowns, and breakthroughs, I have devised a process of reprogramming your reality.
Since there is much confusion derived from the limitations of the English language, I must first define the term “reality” in my own words for the process to work.
Definition of Reality:
The accumulation of experiences, thoughts, feelings, and actions creating the perception of your current circumstance.
Perception is a keyword when referring to reality. Everyone’s individual reality is based on their subjective perception, not necessarily standard conditions. Many people are living in an exhausting, unhappy, and unfulfilling reality. We have the power to change that — by reprogramming it.
How to Reprogram Your Reality:
Observe what isn’t aligned with you. If you are unaware of the problems, it will be impossible to change them. Look for any reaction or resistance in your life and pinpoint people or situations that correspond to this resistance. Most likely, these are the areas you need to shift.
Example: If you are struggling with your job because you don’t feel seen or respected, sit in a quiet space, center your mind, and think about your job. Immediately all of the reactions and emotions will come up.
Observe the situation objectively. I call this step the process of “neutralizing.” You will have a difficult time recreating something if the space is filled with a prior interpretation.
Example: Sit with the emotions and observe them objectively. The longer you sit in objective awareness, the less intense those reactions will be. Eventually, when you do this long enough, there will be no reaction or subjective perception associated with that situation. This is the process of neutralizing.
Once you have come to a neutral place in your mind, you can reprogram your response to something helpful and uplifting. The process of reprogramming is simply repeating the new perception you desire over and over again until it becomes ingrained into your reality.
Example: Although still don’t like your job, you have neutralized the reaction and resistance to it. Now it’s time to find an aspect of your job you can appreciate, even if it’s something small such as, “my job helps me pay the bills every month.” By focusing on the gratitude and appreciation in your life, you amplify that frequency to the other parts of your reality.
Repeating these three simple steps over and over again takes time and energy. However, you will start to see subtle changes in your life. Maybe your health gets better, or your sleep improves. Maybe you finally get that raise you’ve been asking for or you get an opportunity for a new job altogether!
Overall, it’s okay to feel down or lost as a result of thinking differently. It’s okay to feel as though you’re struggling to make it through life. But if I leave you with anything it’s this: you have the power to change your life for the better, and it all starts with awareness.
