Past Life Regression- Reliving is relieving. By Smita Wankhade

Past Life Regression- Reliving is relieving. By Smita Wankhade

Bimal came to me for regression sessions as he was traumatized by his brother's behavior. He could not understand why his brother always ill-treated him. He could not understand why his brother had suppressed him since childhood. So much so, that he literally had to take permission from his brother for whatever he wanted to do, to the extent that Bimal's brother even decided on the career that Bimal was to pursue.

When taken to a 'past-life' Bimal saw that he had been a supervisor in a coal mine and had been very rude to the workers who were under his charge. He forced them to do rigorous work while he himself just looked on. In that life time, after an argument and in a fit of rage he had killed a worker by pushing him from a height. This worker is his own brother in this life time.

Only when he saw the past, the 'Why me?' was resolved. He understood why his brother was dominating his life. The regression session helped Bimal to forgive his brother. Many of us have this 'Why me?' in our life. Many of us are victimized by others. But we must remember that relationships help us ascend, spiritually…through the lessons we learn. Not knowing our past is like picking up a book and reading it from the middle. It gives us an incomplete picture and does not make complete sense. Regression is going back to know why things happen. . .why we or certain people behave in a particular way….why certain things happen to us, or to others. Its like reading the book from the beginning. It helps us see the bigger picture.

Reincarnation and Past-Life-Regression are not modern concepts. People have believed in reincarnation since ancient times. There have been numerous techniques used to explore past lives since prehistoric times. There is sufficient evidence to show that the Ancient Hindus, Greeks, the Egyptians, the Tibetans, and the Hebrew Cabalists etc. used Past-Life Remembrance. There is a lot of research on the subject since the past sixty years and parapsychologists' from all over the world have proved the therapeutic use of past-life recall.

We are a sum total of all that we have been in the past, every experience, thought & emotion! We reincarnate to learn lessons like trust, forgiveness, love, compassion etc; to teach the lessons we learn; and to enjoy ourselves. We are spiritual beings on a human experience and not human beings on a spiritual experience as we commonly understand.

Before we reincarnate we choose the circumstances, parents, social conditions, personality, etc. The persons going through regression sessions will perceive the past life experiences through different modes. It could be in the form of visual images; kinesthetic i.e. with sensations in the body; auditory i.e. by hearing sounds; emotional charge; or merely by acquiring knowledge, talents, abilities, skills etc.

Reincarnation is merely changing the body. We do not learn the lessons when we are in this earthly experience and get struck in the wheel of karma. In Sanskrit, the word Karma means Action. The law of Karma states 'As you sow, so shall you reap'. Contrary to popular belief Karma is neither good or bad; nor is it a reward or a punishment system. Also it is not something over which we have no control. In fact, Karma makes us realize that we are all one. It plays an important role in the spiritual growth of the soul which in turn leads to the soul's overall evolution. Our spiritual progress depends on our ability to come out of the karmic cycles that we are in. This can happen through learning and understanding the lessons in each karmic cycle. The dynamics of karma help us to keep learning and progressing through actions by us in each life time. We keep reincarnating till we have completed all our karmic cycles. Bhagwan Shri Krishna has said "Karma gets burnt and destroyed in the fire of Wisdom."

Feelings of Déjà vu, love or hate at first sight, obsessions and compulsions, children with adult memories, child prodigies, jinxes and hard luck cases, birth defects and birthmarks, unearthing buried treasures, xenoglossy (the ability to speak languages to which a person is not exposed during this life time), multiple personalities and schizophrenics are all evidences of past lives. Strong emotions like love, grief, laughter, joy, anger, hatred, jealousy, sorrow, pain are experienced during past-life recall.

During the process of Past-life-regression, the subject goes to the root cause of his issues. It takes the subject back in time and retrieves memories of the past-lives. These memories are not accessible during normal waking consciousness. Past-life-regression helps us to explore past-lives and retrieve the energies of those lives. It brings a person in touch with his larger reality and helps in achieving a clear understanding of the cause of his problem while simultaneously enabling to eliminate it at the source. By exploring our past-lives, we can find solutions for the troubles that we face in the present life. Past-life regression helps to heal issues related to emotional, mental and physical plights. It facilitates the healing of chronic diseases through the understanding of karmic patterns and the removal of blockages. This is a holistic healing technique that works on the body, mind and soul.

A traumatic event or death is associated with predominant emotions of helplessness, powerlessness, fear, etc. The memories of distressing experiences of the earlier bodies remain intact and are transferred on to the new body when the soul incarnates. These negative emotions are stored in the sub-conscious mind which can be accessed during healing sessions. Past-life regression releases us from all kinds of fears and phobias by understanding their specific causes which many-a-times are rooted in a previous life time. Past-life recall frees us totally from the fear of death and gives a great insight into our material lives.

Past-life-regression helps to improve inter-personal relationships, which puts an end to incomprehensible clashes and friction, freeing us from the 'WHY ME!' struggle. Past-life-regression sessions focused on relationships, help the subject to unconditionally forgive, let-go, accept and love the other person. This heals the relationship.

Past-life regression is also instrumental in retrieving talents and abilities from earlier life times. It helps us to know the purpose of our life. Money reflects our belief system. Core Beliefs like 'I am not good,' 'I don't deserve,' arise from our past and reflect our money status. Past-life-regression helps us to resolve jinxed and hard luck cases which are actually some blocks that a person carries. Past-life recall aids in resolving these negative core beliefs, jinxed and hard luck cases and hence improves the financial status of the current life.

Past-life recall helps us connect to our masters and guides which enables us to receive messages and healing too. In addition, Past-life regression facilitates us to meet our loved ones who have left the body. It also permits us to do future progression and to re-script the future to make it better.

Neha, a little twelve year old girl who still bed-wetted saw in a past-life session that she was gripped by intense fear one night when dacoits entered her house and killed her parents. The dacoits then turned towards her and the last thought before she died was that of helpless and not being able to control the situation. The mere understanding that she thus died but still existed helped her to release the fear in a deeper level and is now released of her issue.

'Just the belief in reincarnation has the power to awaken the memories of our past –lives!'

Location: Hotel "The Connaught"

Event Description:
Past Life Regression and Energy Balancing (2 Days Basic Workshop)

Facilitated By : Smita Wankhade

This experiential workshop helps one understand the higher dimension and to see the big picture of life to live a fuller life. It also helps one find joy, peace, love, confidence, courage and the spark in life!

This workshop helps one to connect with the masters, guiding angels and higher self. It also helps one to find the purpose of life and to resolve health, wealth, relationship, fears, phobias or any other issues by going to root cause of those issues.

The root cause could be in the past of the present life or any previous lives. This is achieved by retrieving energies from the past and transforming them to love-based energies.

Benefits of Past-Life Regression

Past-life-regression is capable of healing a person's emotional, mental and physical problems.

In the upper realms, our past, present and future occur simultaneously. Hence, our subconscious mind can access our past-lives and transform the energy of the past-lives, so that it does not have a negative impact on our present lives.

This transformation during Past-Life-Regression brings about healing.

'We are spiritual beings having a human experience and not human beings having a spiritual experience.'

About The Facilitators:-

Smita Wankhede

Smita is a Breath Worker, a Past life Regressionist, and a Reiki master. She has been studying the benefits of meditation, creative visualization, energy work and past-life regression, since the year 1998.

After having gone through different experiences in childhood like tuning to different realms, seeing a 'soul', out-of- the- body experiences, her curiosity about the mystics increased and she understood these experiences when she began learning more about this subject. With her questions answered when she was introduced to the world of spirituality, she realized that spirituality is a wisdom that brings joy which has to be experienced, and that, this joy has to be shared with all mankind!

Having benefited from the breath work and past life regression sessions and with a natural flare for teaching, she realized that giving healing to others and spreading the knowledge of spiritual science is her purpose in life! Through her healing sessions, people have found relief from issues which were preventing them from living a fuller life. Each of them have found the purpose of their life and have been able to balance their material and spiritual life.

Sandeep Goswamy has invited you to the event 'ANGEL WORKSHOP By Tina Sarup' on The NewAge Foundation!

Sandeep Goswamy

ANGEL WORKSHOP By Tina Sarup Time: April 16, 2010 at 10am to April 18, 2010 at 5pm
Location: Hotel "The Connaught"
Organized By: The NewAge Foundation

Event Description:
The word angel inspires a reaction from all who hear it. An angel to most people means someone they know or have encountered with a sweet disposition who is unconditionally giving and kind.

There are however very real heavenly beings called angels. Angels are often depicted in paintings and drawings as beings with wings and robes and large halos above their heads. Angels are basically beings of light created by God to help us in all aspects of our lives , they bring divine light , love peace and joy into our daily existence. They exist for one reason only and that is to spread the love of God and to carry out his will throughout the universe

Working with angels will open up a cornucopia of blessings as you bring more of the divine into your everyday. The word angel means messenger and that is what they are messengers sent by God to guide, protect, to love unconditionally and to help us in whatever way we choose to ask .

The angels are bound by the law of free will which means they cannot reveal themselves or help until we choose to ask for their help . so they wait patiently until we gain awareness of their presence around us and reach out our hands for assistance.

In working with angels you are in no way denying the presence of God as angels are of God they always point the way back to the creator. And also angels do not belong to any one religion they are here to help each and every precious child of God on this planet. It is their desire that each one of us be happy and fulfilled and filled with everlasting peace.

A Few Words From Tina Sarup :

"I have been working with angels my whole life you can say as I started to see the angels and fairies as a young child but I dismissed it relegating it to childhood fantasies . The angels however had a purpose for me, a personal crisis which left me close to death brought me into a complete and deep relationship with the angelic realm . I am an angel intuitive by birth and have now been working with the angels for over 7 years . I also have studied under Charles Virtue which give direction and meaning to my understanding of the angels.

The course is a three day course and will contain many practical exercises and partner interaction to introduce you on how to work with and gain more awareness of the angels around you .

Suresh Padmanabhan is the creator of Money Workshop. He is highly educated with post graduate in Management having worked in senior management positions in Advertising and IT. His last job was the Branch Head for a large multinational in IT. He quit his high flying career once he realised his purpose and mission in his life.

From that moment life was never the same. He went deep into himself and did research on the topic of Money because he had to rescue his own family from the huge financial loss. As he says, "I am the first beneficiary of Money Workshop principles"

How To Handle Stress? - By Suresh Padmanabhan

How To Handle Stress? - By Suresh Padmanabhan

(Suresh Padmanabhan is an author of the International Bestseller- "I Love Money" now translated in more than 10 Indian and International Languages. He is also the creator and coach for Money Workshop a program to develop consciousness in the areas of Money, Wealth Creation, Prosperity and Spirituality. He has conducted numerous workshops both in India and Overseas. Website

Money stress, relationship stress, exam stress,health stress, almost everyone is bogged down by stress.

When you go by train and you are carrying huge luggages, what do you do first?
Find a place for it and keep it there so that you can relax and enjoy the journey.
What would happen if you still carried the luggage on your own head and not keep it down?
Do you ever stress yourself more and ask the driver of the train: sir, could you tell me what is your experience in driving this train? How many years have you driven the train properly?
Have you caused any accident? would you please show me your licence?
Can I see your cv/ Bio data before I board this train.

You would say, it is foolish. That means somewhere you trust your entire life to a stanger knowing that he would enable you to reach your destination perfectly.

These two incidents should just give you a simple mantra for handling stress?
Drop It- Let Go. Now you might think is it so simple, why not?
Two words were enough for the British to go back to their country- Quit India.
Only a simple deep awarness is enough, Let Go....
One wonderful story to illustrate this:
Once A professor began his class by holding up a bucket with some water in it.
He held it up for all to see; asked the students, "How much do you think this bucket weighs?
100 gms...., 500 gms... 1000 gms etc ......the students answered.

'I really don't know unless I weigh it,' said the professor, 'but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?' "Nothing" the students said.

OK what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?' the professor asked.
Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the students.
You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?' Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis; have to go to hospital for sure! ventured another student ; all the students laughed.

Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?
Asked the professor. No replied the students Then what caused the arm ache; the muscle stress?'
The students were puzzled.

When one student suddenly said, simple "Put the glass down"
Exactly!' said the professor' Life's problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head; they seem OK. Think of them for a long time; they begin to ache. Hold it even longer; they begin to paralyze you. They affect your mind, body and soul. So much pain all because you are holding it and just not letting it go.

Imagine your body holding to all that you eat and does not allow it to let go as waste in the morning each day of your life. Such amazing perfection, yes. All because your body has the wisdom to let go. If your body has so much wisdom to let go, why not you? each day ...

It's important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT to 'put them down' at the end of every day before you go to sleep.
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh; strong; can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!

Suresh Padmanabhan is conducting his Money Workshop at Delhi on 20th & 21st February
Remember friends- PUT THE GLASS DOWN", "Let Go" each day.....

Death of the caterpillar is the birth of a butterfly - Suresh Padmanabhan

Death of the caterpillar is the birth of a butterfly - Suresh Padmanabhan

If you look at the caterpillar one would never like it much. It is not beautiful to look at, it crawls very ugly. Everyone likes the butterfly; the beauty of a butterfly is just stunning. But few know that it is the ugly caterpillar which transforms into a beautiful butterfly. And hence the end of the caterpillar is the birth of a butterfly. The ugly dies and the beautiful is born. But the beauty is born from the ugly. See the magic of the Nature. How does this happen? And what does it teach us?

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

The man felt that he should do something about it. So he decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. He expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.

Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly. What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon. Now sadly the butterfly could never fly.

When we look at this situation it is very much like our life. Many a times we are just in a hurry to get out of our problems. We should understand that problems come into our life to take us to the next level. Look back into your own life, maybe you had a huge loss of money, and this very loss taught you a big lesson and later on you started making big money because you had learnt.

Now are you not grateful that the problem happened because without it you could never have made it big.

So called negative incidents or problems propels you higher than positive incidents where the growth is only gradual. I remember in my own life I lost a huge amount of Money in the stock market. That made me very sad and depressive. For nights I used to wonder: Why is god doing this to me? Why do good people get bad things? I used to feel hurt at my life.

This incident made me think more about Money and it's mysteries. I did a lot of Research on Money, Karma, Spirituality, Human Powers and what not… I discovered "Money Workshop" which I have been taking for the last 8 years with huge success all across the world. My life and others who attended Money Workshop fully transformed.

Right now if you are having a problem please understand that you need to be aware that a great transformation is under process. Problems come to give us power. You can choose to see the problem or the transformation. Don't fight with the problem for the problem stays longer and longer. Make the problem your friend. Ask your inner wisdom what the problem is trying to teach me. Learn and go to the next level. Then you would have understood a big secret of making every problem a stepping stone towards success.

The death of a problem is the birth of success.
