“You are not here by accident or by some coincidence of nature. You are a spiritual being learning lessons of love in this earth school.” -Dr. Brian Weiss
We are beautiful, multi-faceted, bright beings; I believe that our entire world would change if everyone remembered this truth and stopped believing what skeptics tell us.
Traditional psychotherapist and author of “MIRACLES HAPPEN The Transformational Healing Power of Past Life Memories“, Dr. Brian Weiss, was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from “the space between lives,” which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss’s family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.
Would you like to know who you were in a past life?
Why you may have certain connections to people, places, things or ideas that you can’t quite understand why. Maybe you’ve been told your whole life that past lives aren’t possible or real, but still, there is a nagging feeling within you that tells you something is missing. I encourage you to explore these feelings and ideas. All of the little things could add up to a much bigger picture.
My First Past Life Regression Experience
I’ve always had an open mind, so at a time when I was in the searching mode; I went to a past life regression workshop being held in downtown Denver, where I lived back in 2002. I ended up attending and learning about a historical figure I didn’t know existed at the time, and how the memory of that life has been with me ever since I was a child, I just didn’t know it.
I was regressed to the life where the first thing that I saw was my taupe colored granny boots and my dress was full, with long, flowing sleeves. When the hypnotherapist asked everyone what our name was, I heard my full name as Sarah Jennings Churchill. I saw the inside of my home, I walked through the empty rooms to French doors that opened into an outdoor courtyard, there was no grass on the outside, I remember thinking “how awful there is nothing green to look at” it appeared to be like Blenheim looks today without grass in the main courtyard.
The hypnotherapist had me look into the mirror, and I saw that I had blonde wispy hair pulled up on top of my head. I knew that I was a Duchess but I instantly heard that “titles do not impress me”. I saw my husband; even heard his name was John. I instantly knew he was a military commander, saw him on his white horse coming down the cobblestone-street and there were the town’s people on both sides of the road cheering him on. He must have won a battle… I felt my heart swell up at the sight of this man that day. I’ll never forget his dark brown eyes and the wisdom and grace that he carried. I felt that if I ever saw him in this lifetime, I would recognize him. I may have met him in this lifetime but that story will be saved for another day.
I was then taken to another scene where there was a young girl around the age of 8 or 9 with dark brown hair playing and running down a green grassy hill with another girl her age. For some reason, I didn’t know who this dark-haired girl was in the vision until later when I discovered that I was a real historical figure. This must have been the day that I met Anne, my friend, and the future Queen.
I saw myself walking into a room with a very tall mantel that held a beautifully carved box, and this mantel required me to stand on a stool. I wasn’t sure what this box stood for but I knew how I felt when I went to open it, a feeling of nostalgia came over me. I also had a flash of being in a long hallway as I closed the doors to a room that housed wooden children’s toys. My entire life felt amazing and I was extremely content. I believe this box is where I kept the letters between Anne, and I and from my beloved John.
After the regression; it was very interesting to hear the different experiences that everyone had; one woman was burned at the stake, while another woman was taken back to the 1950’s. It left an impression on me, it felt like everything I experienced was indeed a genuine memory; it came along with emotions just like our memories do in the present lifetime.
After this first past life regression, several years went by before I indeed found out that everything I saw matched up with a real historical figure. The person named Sarah Churchill did exist; she married John and became the first Duchess of Marlborough. John and I loved each other, which was a rare relationship in those days and the regression brought that memory up for me.
The puzzle pieces to the story get even more interesting when I look over my whole life in present time.
In 4th or 5th grade, when we were studying a bit of English history; the subject of the ‘Whigs and the Tories’ came up. I had a moment where I remember saying out loud “why does this sound so familiar to me?” at this point in time, I had no idea there was such a thing as past lives.
I have always had an affinity for long sleeves, sleeves were my thing. There was an occasional memory of living a grand life but the reality was I lived in poverty as a child, anyone could say this was daydreams but I saw this grand life very clearly. Later when I worked at a nursing home, I remember one of the patients turned and looked at me in surprise and said: “what are you doing in here?” He then mumbled something “this place is no place for a duchess” it was weird, and I didn’t think much of it at the time because he was a bit senile.
When I was a smoker, I smoked Marlborough cigarettes; there was something in the name Marlborough that I liked. The adult life I found myself living in Woodland Hills (a name similar to Woodstock) where many of the streets were named after places and people that I knew back in that English lifetime. There was St. Albans court, Scarborough Way, and a few other figures that I can’t remember off the top of my head but I recognized it as I drove down the street one day. I bought a car that was purchased from ‘Freeman’ Buick, later I discovered that my pet name given to me by Queen Anne was Mrs. Freeman, and I called her Mrs. Morley. I didn’t even know all these things until after I had read more on the subject of the Churchill’s.
I am not sure why I’m ready to share this story now but it feels like something that I shouldn’t keep to myself. Yes, I discovered that I had a few enemies back then, I ran into problems with being outspoken and perhaps a bit bossy but I’d like to think that I have resolved these issues and not carried them over into this lifetime. I am at peace with not holding any titles greater than mother, sister, and daughter; I’m not a duchess this time around. I know my soul lives on and that each of our souls is greater than any Earthly title we could ever hold.
Just knowing the soul never dies has been an empowering experience; I am alive and well in this modern day. I have a compilation of many lifetimes of experiences that make up who I am today. Being able to verify what I saw and heard in my regression made me into a believer in past lives when I never consciously knew about Sarah before this experience.
I wish to encourage you to discover any hidden truths with an open mind. You never know what is waiting to be found in the story of your soul, perhaps the clues have even been in front of you your entire life.
