Sample regression session conducted by Gloria Constantin and used by permission. Induction has taken place and client is now in a past life.
In this past life, the client (now known as Samuel) finds himself outside in an open square. It is cloudy and overcast. Patches of snow on the ground alternate with scruffy grass and mud. There are barracks nearby. He sees rows of people standing. A fence encloses the entire square, which is out in the country, away from any other buildings. On closer observation, Samuel sees that there are men, women and children here. Some are naked, some have pants on and some have only shirts. All of the clothing is soiled and tattered.
Samuel looks down at his feet. He has on worn-out shoes that are too large for him. As he moves around the enclosure, he sees muddy water squirting out through the holes in his shoes. The water is icy. Nothing covers his legs. He notes that his knees are bony and his legs are thin. He is wearing only a soiled shirt. Samuel touches his head and notes that he has only stubble for hair. Samuel now sees soldiers wearing military helmets and shouldering rifles. German Shepherd dogs are being used to herd the prisoners around the square. There are also black “police” dogs. The prisoners are not going anywhere; they are simply being ordered to run in a circle. Occasionally the dogs lunge out at them. One of the dogs has bitten Samuel on the hand, and he falls to the ground. A soldier kicks his naked butt to make him get up. Different lines are being formed. There may be a role call going on as well. He confirms now that they are all prisoners.
Outside the fence you can see meadows and rolling hills. He thinks there are mountains in the distance. It is cold out – the soldiers are wearing gloves and you can see the exhalations of their breath. They are wearing thick gray jackets and hoods. It seems to be 1945. Samuel believes he is in his early 40′s, and has black, curly hair (prior to it being shaved). He had a mustache, which is now gone, and a small beard (goatee). He is tall and skinny. He believes he has a hooked nose. He is filthy; dirt has ground itself into his skin. He thinks he is Polish.
Samuel is now with a group of other prisoners. They are hauling large wheelbarrows of corpses. They pull the corpses off the wheelbarrows and place them into a furnace or crematorium for burning. Samuel is actually glad of all activities he is forced into doing. These help to keep his mind off the bleakness of his situation and the incredible hunger he constantly experiences. He thinks of escaping often. There are a few prisoners that he trusts, and together they focus on creating plans to escape. Samuel lives in a kind of meditative state, detaching himself from his immediate surroundings. The more he has to do, the better.
This scene dematerializes in memory to return Samuel to his place of business. He believes he is a watchmaker and watch repairman. He has a small shop on a dark street lined with other shops. The streets are narrow and paved with cobblestones. The street is on a hill. It is a very old street. At the back of the shop is his work area with a number of tables. He makes and repairs the type of watch that is worn on lapels. There are also a number of partially constructed cuckoo clocks. He senses these are a specialty of his. There are grandfather clocks in the shop. Samuel wears a magnifying glass over one eye to assist him with manipulating the tiny, delicate machinery involved with his craft. He notes that he has long, thin fingers. He senses that his eyes are blue-gray.
He believes his shop is in Poland. Samuel is very meticulous; very precise. He aims for perfection in his custom pieces. He is considered by his customers to be a fine craftsman. His father taught him the craft, but Samuel created the shop. There is a deep satisfaction in creating things of his unique design. He believes his designs are far superior both mechanically and artistically. He works long hours. Dave observes that there are no flaws in Samuel’s “machinery.” His overall way of being is geared towards highly articulated precision. He has detailed schematic drawings of his designs and these are strewn about his workshop. Nothing is left to chance. It looks like Samuel is a bachelor focused solely on his work.
In the next scene, someone is driving a military truck and making an announcement over a loudspeaker. Samuel finds himself in a crowded town, but it appears to be gated, that is, separate from the rest of the town. It’s a residential area that appears to not only be segregated, but guarded as well. Samuel has been moved here from his shop. The segregated part of town is overcrowded. Many people live together in small apartments. The streets (which look more like alleys) are filthy, and there is poor sanitation. Stale water is pooling in the gutters. The children playing in the streets are dirty, as is their clothing. People are allowed to come and go on a limited basis. Samuel believes this “ghetto,” as he has identified it, is in the same town that he lives in.
Samuel is feeling despondent and somewhat lost. He has been forcibly cut off from his life, and is living hand-to-mouth. Supplies are delivered to the ghetto, but they are not sufficient to take care of everyone. Some of the people are becoming ill.
There appears to be an uprising. Samuel sees a huge crowd of the ghetto people rushing the gate. Soldiers are trying to hold back the angry crowd which has broken out through the gates. There is fighting – the crowd is throwing itself at the soldiers who guard the gates. Samuel has not joined the crowd; he is watching. There is chaos – but trucks of soldiers are arriving now. The truck soldiers are now shooting into the crowd and throwing what appears to be rounded objects that are releasing smoke or gas. Bodies are now piling on the narrow streets. The ghetto residents are being transported in trucks to the prison. The ghetto is completely vacated.
Samuel is back at the scene where he is stuffing corpses into the furnace. Some of the men in his escape group have been killed. Rather than despair, Samuel feels even more strongly determined to escape.
In the next scene, Samuel is running with three male prisoners. They are attempting to break out, but they are shot in the back with machine guns. Samuel is wounded and drops to the ground. One of the men is killed; the other, like Samuel, is still alive. Samuel is thrown into the fire. At the point of death, the prisoners who work that detail are forced to do this. Samuel sees his body convulsing in the fire. Samuel’s last thoughts are of pain. He remembers inhaling fire, and he dies remembering his shop.
Samuel has died and is moving away from his body. He finds himself in complete darkness. He has a sense of trying to annihilate all consciousness by trying to find the darkest recess he can find. He senses himself becoming liquid so that he can blend permanently into the darkness and never be seen or found again.
He is not angry or sad – instead he feels more of a deep, utterly profound depression. Hence, he is working hard at completely annihilating self. He does not want to ever experience anything again – so he is seeking to destroy his spirit, to become nothing. He can’t handle any more. He is doing the best he can to create a state of complete spiritual death.
Facilitator wonders if Samuel would be willing to ask for the assistance of a guide who can help him make a shift at this point – either out of his pain or out of consciousness altogether. The Emissary Guide (a giant robed figure that made his appearance in a prior regression) appears. This Guide is now drawing Samuel’s energy out of the darkness and absorbing it into himself. Facilitator observes that the Guide seems to be engaging in an act of healing Samuel. Client feels that Samuel’s energy is being reconfigured or reformed so that Samuel can bear to exist.
The three guides that have shown up in Client’s previously explored end-of-life scenarios have appeared. They are concerned about Samuel.
Facilitator: Do these three guides appear to be your soul’s primary guides?
Client: They seem to be the guides for a particular series or cluster of lifetimes.
Facilitator: And are these lifetimes thematically related?
Client: They could be. I don’t think these three are traditional guides – they seem to be associated with overseeing the larger picture [of the soul’s development].
Client mentions that he senses other beings around who are observing.
Facilitator: Could these beings who are observing be members of Samuel’s soul family?
Client: I can’t tell.
Facilitator: Is Samuel still being reconfigured?
Client: Samuel is now standing in front of The Robe (a/k/a Emissary Guide), and The Robe is now showering him with light.
Facilitator: How is Samuel feeling now?
Client: He seems numb. He is still in the healing process.
Facilitator: Are you receiving any communications from The Robe?
Client: There seems to be concern that the soul has some damage. The trauma was too great. I’m not sure who is making that statement or observation.
Facilitator: How does your Guide, The Robe, feel about your performance in the life as Samuel?
Guide: Samuel was exceptional in his ability to deal with a traumatic series of events that would normally be considered untenable by even the hardiest of souls. The intensity of the experience, however, had a short-circuiting effect on what this soul could handle on an emotional level. This resulted in a desire to achieve total numbness.
Facilitator: Is the Emissary Guide able to give us any insights into the goals that Samuel had established for the life and if he was able to meet them?
Guide: The goal was not for Samuel’s life to end in the most heinous way imaginable. The goal was to live a simple life after a series of unusually difficult previous lifetimes and to create an outlet for creative expression without exposing himself to the constant demands of a lifetime that is exceptionally busy. Being caught in a system where the seeds of hatred are used to overpower the sincere and otherwise cooperative intentions of the greater community is something that cannot always be avoided. Even with the most careful planning, paths in life can be unchangeably altered. This is all part of the general experience.
Facilitator: I understand that guides are not all-seeing and all-knowing. Are they, nonetheless, active in guiding the life from the moment of birth to the moment of death?
Guide: There is always involvement; there is always guidance available to those who wish to receive it, but even the best guidance is of little merit when there are so many active forces that can thwart it.
Facilitator: So why even try? It seems like such a crap shoot.
Guide: Good intentions are always better than no intentions at all, and even the smallest endeavor, that is, the most miniscule attempt to find the positive in an otherwise bleak experience, is a step forward on the path.
Facilitator: Do all souls benefit from the acts of one soul who bravely moves forward?
Guide: A soul that moves forward creates ripples that benefit everyone.
Facilitator: That’s heartening. Is it possible for the Emissary Guide to take Samuel to meet his soul group?
Guide: Samuel has friends that are around him at all times but they tend to stay out of the way when he is engaged in business with his guides.
Facilitator: Is Samuel done with his business now so that he can meet his soul group?
Guide: The soul group is always present. It is not something that you are displaced from or suddenly disconnected from. There is a constant resonance between members of your soul group that creates a link that is continual. It is similar in theory to a musical tone that reverberates as a single note as a constant hum in the background. Although your focus may shift to other matters from time to time, this perpetual hum is constantly present.
Facilitator: How many members are there in Samuel’s primary soul group?
Guide: This idea of primary is somewhat misleading in that there are layers of connecting groups (or resonances) that are around a soul at any time. Each group or resonance represents multiple functions. There is not just one group; there are interconnecting layers of groups. These serve multiple functions similar to the cells in a body.
Facilitator: Thank you. We are interested in understanding the nature of primary soul groups. Would the same concepts apply to the idea of primary soul mates?
Guide: Soul mates are another misnomer. There are souls that may be thematically linked in what may seem like a disjointed series of lives, but these souls, because of their thematic resonance, will tend to appear and form similar duties in that lifetime. There are also souls that by their shared proximity in a lifetime may give the appearance of being soul mates simply due to being in the advantageous position of meeting their current life demands.
Facilitator: Despite this, are there some souls that Samuel is especially fond of and enjoys incarnating with?
Guide: There will always be souls of similar resonance; that is, souls who when in close proximity, will tend to enhance this resonance.
Facilitator: I was wondering if the Guide could comment on what it is that thematically links souls.
Guide: Souls are thematically linked when the resonance they create together in one lifetime directly resonates to similar connections in other lifetimes. Thematic resonance may also be revealed when there are essential truths that are in alignment.
Facilitator: And these essential truths are truths of the individual souls?
Guide: Essential truths are when selected life themes are chosen to act as a container in which all experiences in a lifetime are connected. It is the organic thread that helps to make sense of the experiences you encounter.
Facilitator: We have a question regarding the purpose of the selection of the body for the current lifetime. Why was this particular body chosen?
Guide: The current body was chosen specifically for its inclination to avoid an active lifestyle and be more easily able to find states of relaxation.
