When being regressed, the ease at which the information comes to us can vary. Being in touch with our creative side, and not being stuck in thought, can be of benefit. It’s important to not think and analyse in a regression. Let go of expectations. Go with the flow. Accept what comes to you without trying to work out if it’s right or wrong, made up, the wrong time period, or how it may relate and fit into your life.
Please make a list of 6 to 8 questions that are important to you. You may come up with one that sounds silly, but don’t worry, note that down as well.
When we talk before you go into the regression, we will go through these questions. You may also think of some new ones then. If you don’t have them prepared, that’s fine. We will work them out beforehand.
With each question, I would normally follow up with additional questions in relation to the first one to find clarity, so it can take time to get through them all.
I recommend for one to two weeks before a session, you use a daily meditation with a single point of focus. Alongside that, you could do a guided meditation that has an emphasis on visualisation when you create a scene or object in your mind. Not everyone is visual, so you may have other senses — or impressions — to guide you, like a knowing.
Included further on is meditation techniques I’ve written. For working on visualisation and receiving impressions, the focusing technique is especially helpful where you observe an item, and then close your eyes and recreate it.
In addition to meditation, it can help to do a relaxation process beforehand where you go through each area of your body, ordering/telling that area to relax. That can take 5-10 minutes. Having a relaxed body during the session can help with letting go and opening yourself up to the process.
Note that I have an audio recorded guided process here that you can download, which will help you to relax, clear and protect your energy with visualisations, ground, and it includes a mantra for the purpose of single focused meditation which you might find beneficial.
It can help you to ground as much as you can while preparing for a session. Take walks in nature (bare feet if possible). Spend some time sitting or lying on the grass. You could read a book on the grass; studying a topic that fits into similar areas of past life regression can also train the consciousness to be more receptive.
Drink around 2 litres (66 ounces) of water daily for a week, leading up to the session. If you drink tea, include that amount in the total. Note caffeine will dehydrate you, so don’t include caffeinated drinks as part of the total. It’s important the water you have is filtered. It can also help if it has lemon or lime juice in it and is lukewarm.
The lukewarm water can ensure an optimum level of inter-cellular hydration which will slowly be established by the time of the session; this enables the cells to absorb and sustain far more of your higher self’s energy, and for longer periods of time during the session.
Your diet can also be important and can play a contributing factor. Make sure you are having a lot of leafy green vegetables, which can be raw or lightly cooked. You can juice them as well. In a session, more beneficial changes can be achieved throughout your body if the physical body is loaded with these goodies. Collectively, these provide the cells with what they need to effectively remove non-beneficial substances while releasing them more easily and healthily.
Try not to consume caffeine, cigarettes, red meat, dairy, gluten, junk food, processed foods, cannabis and synthetic drugs, and alcohol during the two weeks before.
One to two weeks before,
You will receive a link to use when booking your Zoom session, and you will also be sent the link via email. I recommend you install the Zoom client software, even though it works through the browser, as it can help with a better experience. (When you connect using the link, you should see mention of being in a waiting room, then you know it’s working.)
Please test Zoom with someone else before the session if possible, to make sure you don’t have any technical difficulties on the day. If you have no one to test with, just book a free consult with me and I will test it with you. You can also try the Zoom test room here on your own: https://zoom.us/test
Purchase a headset with a microphone that is close to your mouth (no earbuds). Wired is best, as the batteries may not last. Headphones should cover the ear entirely so it’s comfortable to wear. An example is below.
Make sure you have a quiet space for your session. A bed is best, but a comfortable couch is fine. Have your mobile device in airplane mode and any hardline phones off the hook. Make sure you will have no interruptions for about 3 hours after we talk. You may want to consider a hotel room if it’s not possible to have a quiet space at home.
“Now I meditate twice a day for half an hour. In meditation, I can let go of everything. I’m not Hugh Jackman. I’m not a dad. I’m not a husband. I’m just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.” – Hugh Jackman
One way that I think of meditation is that it can open a door to a place you may not have known was there. That place can mean different things to different people. Meditation is like travelling through what we perceive as reality into a strange new land.
I have been taught many different meditation techniques and have also picked up so many more through material I have studied. Meditation is not rocket science and I think it should be kept to something simple when first starting out.
I am going to go through the basics and then move onto some different types of meditations. Please also see my article Daily Energy Clearing & Protection for Emotional and Physical Health, as it compliments this information.
Atmosphere, Space & Time
If you are at this stage, you probably realise that you do need a quiet place where you can meditate and not be interrupted. It may be your bedroom, a spare room, the lounge, under a tree in an isolated area, or anywhere which is quiet. But don’t forget that some noise can act to block out background noise, like a fan or waterfall for example.
I find that lighting a candle helps to create an atmosphere for meditation. Some people burn incense or oils. They may clear the area with sage. Certain crystals can assist with the space clearing and energy of an area simply by being in that location.
But the last thing you want is to have smoke or smells that distract you while trying to clear your mind, so this may not be for you.
Some people also have an altar or a medicine wheel in the same location they are meditating in. However, this may not feel appropriate to you until later on after having the experience of regularly meditating.
The best time of the day to meditate is before the sunrise. Say an hour before. Otherwise, early morning. Your mind is most clear and rested during the morning and you will find the meditations more effective in this time period. You will be able to more easily clear your mind and keep the thoughts out. If you meditate when you’re tired, such as in the mid/late afternoon or at night, you will have to concentrate a whole lot more and your thoughts will jump in more frequently.
I have found that groups of people in the evening can provide an energetic influence which helps with clearing the mind, even if you’re tired. Meditations can be more powerful in a group.
There are many different teachings on how to sit from crossing your legs to placing your hands with your palms faced upwards on your knees. It’s said that a certain position can help the energy flow within your body.
From my perspective, it’s much more important to be comfortable and relaxed. It may take time and multiple meditation sessions for you to work out the best position for you and that’s fine.
My position for meditation is to have a pillow or cushion under me, and one behind my back against a flat surface. This allows me to cross my legs and have them sitting comfortably at a lower level in front of me. I always have back support such as a wall behind me. I place my hands facing down side by side over my legs. I find this comfortable.
Some people may want to sit in a recliner or a chair depending on the circumstances. It may be because of health reasons, pains in certain areas of the body such as the back or legs which require a different position.
While the flow of energy can influence you, which yoga can demonstrate, what’s really important is relaxing the physical body and quieting the mind and thoughts. If you’re in a weird position that you just can’t maintain, you will never be comfortable and can fail to concentrate on the meditation.
If you do this for months, and years, you can also integrate the flow of energy based on the body position.
Remember that you can do some research online for ‘meditation positions’ if you are still not sure how you should sit.
Relaxation and Energy Clearing
“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are“. – Chinese Proverb
When you close your eyes after getting into a position you are comfortable with, I find it very beneficial to quickly perform a relaxation technique.
Think of your toes on your feet, tell them to relax. ‘Toes, relax’
Think of your feet, the soles of your feet, and the opposite side of your feet. Tell them to relax.
Slowly go through your body, relaxing each part of your body. ‘Ankles, relax’
Really mean what you’re saying each time and feel that area letting go of tension. Feel that area relaxing. Reinforce that by telling that part of your body to relax.
‘Knees relax, calves relax, thighs relax’, and so on. It’s up to you how many specific individual body parts you want to focus on. You could try an alternative way of doing this by simply thinking of the area, not naming it in your mind, and just relaxing that area specifically.
When you get to the face, spend more time on this area and go through the different parts of your face such as your eyes, lips, mouth, cheeks, etc and tell each part to relax.The face area is usually more tense.
The first time you do this, it will take a lot longer. Over time, the whole process will be faster and come more naturally. You will feel what is right for you over time as in how long to spend on each area. This will just come to you so don’t worry about the timing.
By actually doing the relaxation technique, you have already started down the path of meditation as that whole time you have been concentrating on each of those areas, and only on them hopefully, relaxing each one, your thoughts have been clear from everything else. If you are tired, your thoughts would most likely have drifted off, which is normal.
You may ask the question, should I do this every time? My answer is yes. It will become easier, faster and will prepare you for whatever meditation(s) you are going to go into for that session. You may get to the stage where you feel like you don’t need to do this, and that’s great. You may feel that simply by being in that atmosphere, and space, and from your body having the practice and body memory of relaxation from repeating this many times in the past, that there is no need to.
With meditation, your intuition should guide you eventually on what feels best to do and how you should do it. In other words, what resonates with you.
You could also try this technique before you begin. Take in a deep breath through the nose. Now visualise the grey smoke coming out of your mouth as you breathe out. Have the intention that this grey smoke is all the energy that you do not want within your energetic system. So this process is cleansing you in preparation for the main meditation technique. Repeat this for a minute or so.
If you’re wondering where to direct that grey smoke, just have the intention of it being absorbed back into the universal energy which could be above you. You could visualise it being sucked up or taken away by a column of light. It’s up to you, but when I do this technique I don’t worry about where it goes.
What to do with Thoughts
“With me, illusions are bound to be shattered. I am here to shatter all illusions. Yes, it will irritate you, it will annoy you – that’s my way of functioning and working. I will sabotage you from your very roots! Unless you are totally destroyed as a mind, there is no hope for you.” – Osho
Whatever you are doing to meditate, using whatever technique, thoughts are going to come into your mind in various forms. It may be something that happened at work. It may be something you have to get done. It may be a noise outside which is annoying you. It could be based on an argument you had. Someone cut you off in traffic. You start getting an itch and then that reminds you of the time you may have had measles.
When that happens, what you need to do is acknowledge what has come to you and then let it go away by pushing it out of your head and not continuing on with that line of thought. If you are new to meditation, it will take time to become proficient at doing this. What this really means is… just stop thinking about that topic/thought that is on your mind at that moment.
You want to be in the moment but not with any thoughts alongside that moment. With lots of practice, you may start to get things that make no sense at all and you would then be able to determine if you’re receiving messages or some form of communication, or a vision of a future event. But that is not usually what would come along straight away, so just be wary of it.
There is a technique you could try using before getting into any meditation. The locked box visualisation technique. Visualise or container of some form. Anything you want. Have the top of it open. Now, put in the intention of moving into that box any troubling thoughts relating to any situation that you think may trouble you. If you are not sure, just say you want to move all thoughts, past and present about any issue into the box. You could say anything that may bring you worry, or stress, but in general you want all thoughts to go in the box.
After you have done this, visualise the top of that container or box closing. You can lock it if you want, with any form of lock. You could imagine a chain going around it, or you could simply close the top. As long as it’s not opened in any way. Now you can move onto your meditation technique.
The long term goal here with a single focus meditation is to not have any thoughts come along for up to 20-30 minutes. Once you achieve this, you can also start using this moment to use various psychic abilities from remote viewing, astral projection, to communicating with your higher self and a lot more. This may take you years to achieve, but the benefits are life changing.
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” – Amit Ray, Om Chanting & Meditation
Once you are ready to begin a meditation, start to breathe in deeply and make sure your mind is totally clear so you are focused on your breathing.
You don’t have to breathe in as deep as you can go, just more deeply than you usually do. It’s said that this can actually increase your lifespan by regularly breathing in deeply, but people always forget that they are breathing and go back to their normal rhythm.
Make sure you’re breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. If you have a blocked nose, it’s fine that you just breathe in and out through your mouth.
Concentrate on the breath. Don’t count them, just breathe in… and then breathe out. You can do this for 20 minutes, which is a long time, or even longer. This is a one focus meditation technique and it is training your mind to stop thinking, but also focus on one specific event in the now.
Thoughts will come into your mind so just push them away as fast as you can and don’t get annoyed or angry at yourself if you get stuck into a thought pattern longer than you wanted to. Just like an olympic athlete, practice, practice, practice.
Breathe in and then breathe out. This may sound very simple, but that’s what meditation is. It is simple.
With this meditation you are going to clear your mind and then concentrate on the beat of your heart. If you can not feel it, just keep breathing until it comes to you. Try taking deeper breaths if you still have trouble finding it.
Once you start feeling it, just keep breathing normally and continue to focus on the beat of your heart inside your chest. You could simply stick to this one technique for the session or move onto the second part if you wish.
With the second part, start to visualise your heart in your mind, as in the physical anatomy of what your heart might look like. See it beating within the visualisation in your mind. You may ask, should I think of it in my chest or out in front of you. Good question. Just do whatever feels comfortable for you.
You may want to look up some pictures of what a heart looks like. This may sound complex, but all you should be doing here is breathing and trying not to concentrate on the breaths, but to concentrate on your heart beat which would be seen in your mind as an actual heart. This is actually an astral projection technique so can be a very powerful meditation if you manage to keep those thoughts out and really concentrate.
Keep breathing normally. Keep feeling that heart beat and visualising your heart in your mind.
Visualisation Concentration Exercises
“I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” – T.S. Eliot
This is one of my favourite techniques to use and also something that has given me results with conscious astral projection from waking up from within a dream.
This is used to train the mind to concentrate on one thing again, but from a different angle. Before you get comfortable in your meditation position, prepare an object and place it in front of you about a metre or so away from you.
It could be a burning candle. It could be a crystal. It could be a statue of some kind. It may be a child’s toy or a glass of water. It doesn’t matter but you don’t want it to be too large.
Once you’re ready to start, open your eyes and look at this object. Try and memorise every single detail of what it looks like. Spend about 30 seconds or so with your eyes open remembering this object from the shadow it produces, if it has one, to the corners and colours. It may have some movement like a flame flickering.
Now close your eyes.
Think of this object. Visualise it in your mind. Again, it may be where it physically is in your mind or a higher up location, it doesn’t matter, just be comfortable with the location you choose to visualise it in.
Try to have that object as a real object in your mind. Have it exactly the same as the physical object you were looking at. Now, your mind may wander as expected, if it does, open your eyes straight away as this can stop thoughts on the spot and is really handy to do. Or, if you forget what it looks like, open your eyes.
Keep repeating this technique, but lessen the amount of time you have your eyes open. Eventually you want to get to the stage where you no longer open your eyes and just visualise this object in your mind’s eye. It may take you five to ten minutes to get to that stage and that is perfectly fine. During that time period you can always open your eyes for the purpose of stopping a thought as well. But after that five or ten minutes, try and just push those thoughts out.
Now, there is a part two to this technique if you wish to learn it.
Get to the stage where you may be five or ten minutes in and you are comfortable with the memory of the object you are visualising. In this moment, try and imagine what it would be like to be that object. If it’s a candle, put yourself in the position of the flame and ask yourself what would you feel as a flame. What would you see around you? Would the world around you be a lot bigger from the flames perspective. How would it feel to be fire existing like that?
Another example may be if you have a crystal. How would it feel to be that crystal? Would it be cold? Would it be hard and shiny around you? Etc.
By doing this, you are moving into the consciousness of that object. You may be surprised what comes to you as it may not be what you were thinking but how it actually feels to exist like that.
A Guided Meditation
This is my own made up guided meditation for you to try. It’s something you could do perhaps once a week as it’s not the sort of thing you would want to do everyday because of the changing scenes and visualisations within. This technique is more for receiving messages, visions, answers than for meditation and calming the mind.
Your intention here is to make contact with your guide(s), so have that in mind before you begin.
Do the relaxation technique first and perhaps take it a bit slower than you usually do as it’s important to be relaxed with this one.
With your eyes closed, visualise a stone doorway in front of you, within a stone brick wall. The bricks can be of any size you like. The doorway is empty, there is no door. There are steps going down within this doorway. These steps are also stone. The size of the steps are up to you.
Move forward and go down these steps. You may be floating. You may be stepping with your feet. This is up to you as what you experience will just come to you, so go with the first thing that comes to you and don’t think about it.
Around you are lit torches with flickering flames on the wall, to light the passage below you.
Keep moving down deeper.
Keep going down those steps and start counting them as you do. One, two, three steps as you move down them. Four, five, six. Seven, eight, nine, ten. Keep going. Eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty.
You now notice the light is not so bright from the torches, but you can still see the steps below you so keep going down. Twenty one, twenty two, twenty three, twenty four, twenty five.
Keep going down, deeper and deeper.
Twenty six, twenty seven, twenty eight, twenty nine. That’s it, you have reached the thirtieth step and it’s getting hard to see the steps below you, but there is still just enough light.
Keep going down. You notice a flat surface coming up ahead where the steps stop. In front of this surface is a closed door. The door can look like whatever comes to you.
Move to that door and open it. You may have to push it open or turn a handle. The door may make a noise when you open it, or it may be quiet.
Through this door is a location and scene that only you know of and can see. This will come to you in your mind. Move through that door into this setting. Slowly look around and focus on everything you can see. Go slowly. Take it all in.
You may see a path up ahead, or a track, or you may not. If you do, follow it and see where it takes you.
If you take that path or not, you will now see up ahead in the distance, your guide. It may be more than one. You may see an energy form, or a physical form. You could see an orb, or something entirely different. Move forward to your guide and now concentrate on anything that comes to you.
What are you getting? Are there messages for you? Or is it just a feeling of comfort with no communication? Do you have a question you want to ask them? If you do, go ahead. Perhaps you require some healing from them. Ask them if they could provide some. Do you want to communicate with someone else that is important to you such as someone who has passed over? Ask your guide if that is possible.
It is now up to you on what to do next. When you feel you have got what you came for, or if you are simply ready to return, move back towards the door and go through it again.
If nothing comes to you when you open that door at the bottom of the steps, that’s really okay and there is nothing wrong with that. You can try again next time and perhaps something will appear. Don’t stop the visualisation. Tell yourself that the next time you do this, you will be even more relaxed and have even more concentration and that it will be easier on you when you try again, then move onto the next step below.
Start to climb those steps again from the darkened place at the bottom, making your way up the steps which are becoming brighter. Keep going up.
Up ahead you see the top of the steps and the doorway up there, as you move up them. You eventually get to the tenth step from the top, so start counting from the tenth to the first step. Ten, nine, eight and so on. When you reach the first step, you are at the top and move through the doorway where you can then open your eyes or come out of your meditation in your own way from perhaps moving parts of your body first such as starting with your toes, feet, fingers and so on and so forth.
Chakra Energy Work
I use this technique very frequently. This is more of an energy work technique than a meditation as it involves multiple visualisations, but in the end you are in a form of meditation simply by focusing on the one specific visualisation at a time. I use this to provide extra energy to my seven primary energy centres, which are the chakras of the body.
My intention when doing this is to strengthen and grow the energy in each area. To energise and generally provide additional energy to each chakra.
Start by visualising white light coming down from above. The source of this for me is simply from ‘source’. You may call in universal energy or something else. It doesn’t matter. In the end, it all comes from the same place.
Draw this energy down through your crown chakra at the top of your head, through the centre of your body down to your solar plexus chakra. When you start off, this energy is pure white light energy. Once you get to the chakra though, you can choose to make it the colour of that chakra, or keep it as white energy, it’s up to you. I sometimes switch from one or the other depending on how it feels
I will assume that you know where all the chakras are and what the colours are if you are doing such a technique as this as this is more of an advanced method.
The solar plexus is said to be the energy centre of the body that filters other energy around to the rest of the chakras. So the reason I start with this chakra and why I focus on this chakra is for this reason. It’s meant to be the best place to channel in energy, in this way.
Visualise this energy coming down from above and into the Solar Plexus chakra. Keep doing this for a few minutes while breathing in and out. I find that I end up bringing the energy in while I breathe in and while I breathe out. I visualise the energy moving up and down to the other chakras, from the solar plexus. But don’t focus on this too much as it will be a distraction and just trust that it’s going to the right areas of the body.
You can put the intention in that the energy will be directed to where it is needed from the solar plexus.
What I do next is then direct the energy to each individual chakra, one at a time starting at the base, working my way up to the sacral, then skipping the solar as it was just worked on, straight to the heart and so on.
Spend perhaps a minute on each chakra as this technique doesn’t need to take long. The more comfortable you go with it, a shorter period of time may be required. Use your intuition or simply what feels comfortable for you.
Finish off at the crown.
You are going to run into itching. Where a part of your body, usually the face, needs to be itched. This is, most of the time, energy moving around because of what you’re doing with the meditation or energy work. It’s best to ignore the itch and not move as it will go away.
Don’t mistake it for being bitten by some insect though!
If you’re new to meditation, it’s going to take a lot of practice to get into it and to be able to get better at clearing thoughts and keeping them out of your mind. Start off slowly, don’t jump in and expect to do an hour or 30 minutes the first time around as I doubt this would work for you.
Try at least fifteen minutes to start off with. It will take this amount of time to work out what position you want to keep using and get used to the techniques you are using. Thirty minutes should be your long term goal, but an hour would be even better. Longer than an hour is not required. An hour would be perhaps three months on, depending on how frequently you meditate.
There are no rules to this. Just see how you go as you will find it gets easier and easier and time may pass faster than you realise during the meditation if you’re managing to keep your mind clear.
An hour is a challenge, so if you want to fit that in each day, break up the sessions. Do two lots of 30 minutes, or perhaps two lots of 20 minutes as then you would hit 40 minutes.
Some people will get pains in their body from sitting in different positions for so long. So just reposition yourself. Don’t worry about breaking your non-moving form as that pain will take away your focus from the meditation so it’s best to get rid of it and get back into a comfortable position.
You may find you will have to stop the meditation simply from not being able to find a comfortable position so don’t be annoyed at yourself, just try again another time.
You can mix in the relaxation with any of the above techniques, but I suggest you stick to one technique for a good period of time as it can interfere with the progress if you switch a lot. (with the exception of guided meditation.) So choose one main technique just for that week such as relaxation, then the heart technique. Or relaxation, and then the breathing technique.
It’s fine to include the chakra energy technique whenever you want.
