The last week of November, our presenter for the York Region Women’s Circle was Donna Smith-Montcreiffe who shared first hand with us the research she has just completed for her upcoming book to be released in March 2015 on Energy or Alternative Healing. We had an incredible evening that stretched our thinking of healing and of the whole human experience. Donna focused on 3 main areas for the evening which included past-life regression, alternative healing and out of body experiences. She read a case study for each of these areas after talking about some of her travels to meet healers and the corresponding healing sessions she had the opportunity to observe.
1. Past Life Regression
From Wikipedia – “Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions or a type of confabulation. Past life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting. Most advocates loosely adhere to beliefs about reincarnation or survival of consciousness”.
Donna spoke of Brian Weiss as one of the leading authors on this topic. What we are looking for are clues from the past that give light to issues that are present and causing discomfort now. If we can identify the pattern or message, we may have more understanding on how to move forward in supporting the healing now.
2. Alternative Healing
Alternative healing involves meeting those people who can bring about healing through their gifts of touch, intention, as well as using new technologies to assist in healing. Donna spoke of a healer she interviewed who was able to place their hands over the top of a client’s head without touching and it resulted in definite healing. This realm of energetic healing is the medium I am working in all the time with my reiki practice and biophoton light therapy. See my expanded version of this from a previous post.
3. Out of Body Experiences
This topic drew the most discussion on the evening of circle. Donna described her own experiences with this from a young girl as she would wake up in the night mentally aware of where she was but unable to move her body…this is called body paralysis. It is a temporary experience and happens as she describes when the soul is leaving the body for astral travel. The Monroe Institute has covered much research on this topic which they refer to as Out of Body experiences. We all discussed different sleeping/dream experiences we have had which allowed for us to understand that these occur way more often and to more people than we realize. We could realize that all is ok and we can relax and learn from it.
We are so much more than we pay attention to in our conscious every day state. When so called “weird” things happen to us, it is an opportunity to expand our awareness rather than think there is something wrong with us.
