The Hall of Mirrors
Begin this hypnotic regression by Stepping Into The Light as described earlier. The subject should be comfortable seated or laid down with one arm at the side and the other placed on the abdomen, and feet uncrossed. Then continue with Breathwork.....
Breathe deeply now, noticing how, when you breathe in, the hand (on the abdomen) rises, and when you breathe out, the hand lowers. Slowly count down from 300 on each in-breath, holding each breath for a mental count of three. Breathe in, hand rises, breathe out, hand lowers . . . .
Concentrate fully on your breathing and notice how, the deeper you breathe, the more relaxed you become, and the more relaxed and comfortable you become, the deeper and more regular the breathing is. Breathing in. . .1. . .2 . . .3 . . .Breathing out.
Imagine yourself now, standing at the top of a very long flight of stairs. The stairs are wide and curved. A rich red carpet runs down the middle of the staircase and on either side is a beautifully carved and polished beechwood bannister. Above you is a skylight that sends down a golden shaft on sunlight, to guide you as you go and the walls are adorned with rich tapestries and beautiful oil paintings.
You begin to walk down the staircase, relaxing more and more with each step down. Going deeper and deeper down. Becoming more relaxed and more comfortable with each step dow. Feel your bare feet sinking down into the thick, soft carpet and you slowly descend the staircase.
And the deeper down you go, the more comfortable and relaxed you become. And the more comfortable and relaxed you become, the deeper down you go - until presently, you reach the bottom of this wonderful staircase and step down into the hall below.
The hall of mirrors is round and high. Hanging from the ceiling is a huge, crystal chandelier which seems to catch the sunlight, sending star dressed fairies dancing round the room. The mirrors that adorn the hall give the illusion of a thousand doors and so you step into the hall, wondering which is your reflection. Which is real?
As you look around the reflections change, some gradually, others more quickly. There is 'you' from your last holiday. Notice yourself and your surroundings in a special place. Where are you? What memory is conjured up? Are you alone? What are you wearing.
Another reflection crops up, this time a younger you, at a happy time. A special you. See that special smile. Who are you with? What is happening?
Now a small child appears in another mirror and it's his/her very first day at school. The world looks such a big place to this four year old girl/boy, and here, in the classroom, everything looks so strange. (Describe a typical classroom for the approximate year that your subject would have started school, nursery equipment, etc). Here comes the teacher, she takes you by the hand, away from your mother and introduces you to another child. See the classroom, the play corner, the toys, the children, the pictures on the wall, the tables, the door and other things here in this room.
And in yet another mirror is a small baby, very tiny and vulnerable, soft skin, sleepy eyes, just been born and wrapped in swaddling clothes. You are in your mothers arms and feel protected, safe, warm and comforted. You can feel your mothers heartbeat against your tiny body and your instinct is to suck.
The mirror changes to a swirl of blues and purple hues. Dancing like flames, but no heat. And in the centre of the flame you see a tiny, minute White Light. And so you Step Into The Light.
You're moving closer to the white light, and as you draw closer and closer to the white light, the white light becomes bigger and brighter, bigger and brighter, bigger and bigger, brighter and whiter, until you are right up to the bright, white light, the bright, white light just in front of you. You are no longer standing in the Hall of Mirrors. Instead, I now will count to three, and at the count of three I want you to Step Into The Light.
One. Two. Three. (Pause).
You are now standing In The Light. It is a pure, white light. Feel the light streaming down through the crown of your head. Feel the white light being drawn downwards, through the body, the head, the neck, the shoulders and arms, the chest, the stomach and thighs and legs and feet. The beautiful bright white light is in you. You are In The Light. You are The Light.
The Light is Love and You are The Light. You are Love. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy field. Your beautiful white Light. You are In The Light and The Light is in you.
Feel the white light cleansing your whole body, your whole mind and your spirit. Feel the beautiful white light lifting away any impure thoughts or feelings. Feel the healing energy of the white light. This is your light. You are the light. You are protected by your own positive psychic energy, your light, your beautiful bright, white light.
Remain in the light for a little while longer, feeling the healing energy of the Light. Feeling cleansed and thoroughly protected from any negative thought forms which you may or may not encounter in your spiritual adventure or your physical life. You carry the white light within you to guide you through the journey you are about to take.
Stepping through the life you find yourself in a previous existence. You are you, but yet, not you. Inside you feel the same, however your physical body is changed, and yet you instinctively KNOW that this is you.
And you can experience or see or sense or know that this person who is travelling on a different path, goes about his/her life, not knowing that you are there, watching. But you CAN watch, or you can BE THERE, as that person, seeing what he or she sees, doing what he or she does, saying, or eating or working the way the other person does. You choose the way you want to experience your past. Looking through the windows of lost time, or reconnecting, re experiencing, re living as your total self.
I will be quite for a while to allow the memories to come forward, leaving strong impressions in the conscious mind. Yet when you hear my voice again, you won't be startled, or alarmed.
Here you can pause for 5 minutes. If you are hypnotizing someone else you can omit the last sentence and ask questions about the life instead.
Now move forward, to the end of this existence and see how this life ends. Realize now that there's no pain because this is just a memory and you have already lived through this experience. (Pause).
And so, the end is here. Step up Into The Light. And tell me, (Name), what was the lesson that you learned in this life. What was its goal. How do you feel about yourself, as you were then, and now, as you are? (Pause for one minute). Time to return now to other side. Come out of the Light, but remember that the Light is always there, inside you. Take that guiding White Light with you, wherever you go. And return to the here and now and when you're ready, open your eyes.
