Reincarnation and angels ?

Do people come back from the dead to live again as new people in different lives and times? Are there invisible guardian spirits, angels or entities watching over us at every minute? A friend of mine whose nickname is “Flick” has found evidence of this by accident. Flick was born and grew up in a small Minnesota town. He worked as a banker for most of his life. Upon retirement he became bored and so took a course in hypnotherapy, after which he opened a small, part-time practice as a hypnotherapist. Mostly, he helps people to stop smoking, lose weight, or conquer phobias.One day an obese woman came in to be hypnotized for help with weight loss. Flick said, “She was an excellent subject for hypnotism. She went under fast. After leading her through some mental relaxation exercises, I asked her to go to the point—the particular incident—in her life which was causing her to eat too much.”Flick explained that sometimes a traumatic event from childhood “gets stuck” in the subconscious mind. Even though the event is forgotten, it still holds a deep influence over the person through adulthood, sometimes causing negative behaviors, such as overeating, fear of water, heights, animals and such.“After examining this woman, I was certain her chronic overeating had its basis some-where in childhood,” Flick said. “So I asked her to go way back in time, and find that point where her desire to overeat had its beginning.”In a few minutes, Flick noticed that the woman’s demeanor changed. Her voice sounded different. Her body language became odd and stilted. “I asked her what was going on,” Flick said. “She told me she was out in the woods at a celebration with a group of Indians. I was not sure what she meant by this, so I asked her to say more.”The woman went on to tell Flick that the year was 1670.

She was a member of a Native American tribe and lived somewhere near the Rocky Mountains in Montana or Colorado. After enjoying herself for a time at this party, the woman said another member of her tribe came to where she was celebrating and chastised her for goofing off while her mother was gravely ill and near death back at her home.Later, the woman said that she was banished and sent into exile from the tribe for her disrespectful behavior, and would have to fend for herself in the wilderness. She was led to a place high in the mountains and left with nothing but the clothes on her back. She said she wandered in the lofty wilderness for many days, and that she eventually died a slow, horrible death of starvation.“After I woke her from the trance, we both were very surprised by the story she had told under hypnotism,” Flick said. “I personally do not believe in reincarnation, and neither did my patient.”But whatever the case, Flick said the woman’s overeating problem quickly disappeared, and that she no longer felt an abnormal need to eat more food than she needed. “I guess if she had experienced starvation at some point—whether it was in another lifetime, or some powerful fantasy—it was a strong motivator to overeat and keep on extra weight. And once she learned that starvation was not a true possibility in her current existence, her weight problems were over.”Flick said that he has had several other clients spontaneously regress into seeming “past lives” and some people even become “channels” for other beings, including angels and ancient teachers.One time, Flick was extraordinarily surprised when working with a petite 76-year-old woman who, under hypnotism, suddenly began speaking in a thick, booming, masculine voice.
Flick said: “The woman wanted to be hypnotized to overcome her persistent grief over the untimely death of her daughter in a car accident. When she was in deep trance, I asked her to find a mental or spiritual source of strength within herself that would help her withstand her tremendous grief.” Suddenly, in a robust voice, the tiny elderly woman said:“THANK YOU, FRIEND, FOR YOUR LOVING ASSISTANCE. BE CERTAIN I AM GUIDING HER THROUGH HER PAIN. LOVE WILL HEAL HER, AS WILL THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS NO DEATH, ONLY TRANSFORMATION.”Flick said: “I almost jumped out of my chair! This little old lady sounded like a Marine drill sergeant! You can’t imagine how odd it was to hear this thick voice coming from this little lady. I asked: ‘Who am I speaking to?’ ” The voice said: “TOR-Al.”“And who or what are you, Tor-Al?” Flick asked in amazement.“OF THE WISE ONES ... I AM ASSIGNED TO THIS GENTLE BEING.”“What do you mean — ‘assigned’ to her?”I AM HER LIFE ASSISTANT. SHE KNOWS OF ME, BUT NOT DIRECTLY. I AM ALWAYS WITH HER.”“Like a Guardian Angel?” Flick asked.“OF THE THRONES,” said the voice.Not sure what the voice meant by “thrones,” he moved on to the issue at hand. He said: “It seems to me that this woman needs a great deal of help right now… she’s in a terrible state of grief.”“YES, BUT WHAT IS NOT APPARENT NOW WILL BECOME KNOWN IN THE GREATER CONTEXT OF HER EXISTENCE. THE DEATH OF HER DAUGHTER SERVES A PURPOSE, JUST AS HER GRIEF SERVES A PURPOSE. IT SERVES THE GREATER LOVE… IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO.”After conversing with the booming voice that called itself Tor-Al for several more minutes, Flick brought the woman out of her trance, and commanded her to remember the Tor-al incident. Upon awakening, the woman wept gentle tears, and said she felt suddenly lifted of her heavy burden of grief, as if someone had “picked up one end of it to help carry it.”Flick said, “She felt lighter and also became certain the death of her daughter carried a higher purpose, and that eventually, perhaps after her own death, she would rejoice in the greater purpose of everything… at least that’s the way she felt.” Once again, Flick says, despite these and other fascinating cases, he is still a “nonbeliever” in both reincarnation and guardian angels.“I suppose it’s possible, but I also know the human mind is vast, still widely misunderstood, and probably capable of all kinds of seeming miracles, like harboring impressions of past lives, or fragmenting independent personalities that can exist like isolated beings within the context of one’s normal mind,” Flick said.There was one thing that made Flick think twice, however. After the session with the elderly woman, he became curious about the Tor-Al’s phrase “of the thrones.” He went to the library and looked up a book on angel lore. He was surprised to discover that, according to an ancient medieval field of knowledge called angelology, angels actually come in nine orders. They are: seraphim, cherubim, thrones, dominations, virtues, powers, principalities, archangels and angels.

Yes, this is a very interesting story. I belive in reincarnation, as I have had more than one experience on the subject. Like Johns spirit says, it is a neverending subject.

There is definitely something to this subject. I also feel as though I had existed before, whether that was here on earth or on a different plain. I read and heard of stories from mothers who's little three or five year old suddenly tells them of another life. I read about one little boy (I believe he was four) who told his mother that he was in a car accident when he was a different man. Such things should not be dismissed. Children do have fantasies, I admit, but when they tell you something in detail and never have been exposed to such before, then one begins to wonder. I also had a persona... [More]

That was definitely an interesting read. I'm not sure where I stand on reincarnation - it would be mildly reassuring to know that death isn't the final straw, but you have to wonder about a soul that's been around the block a few times. Would it show wear & tear? Would it be affected by the previous incarnations? My practical side makes me want to say that it's possible the two examples in the article had read about these people or experiences somewhere, and lodged it in their brains, only to have them come out under hypnosis. But then again, my not-entirely-practical side argues that it w... [More]

Yes it was an interesting read indeed. I have never really thought about reincarnation until a close friend who believes in nothing but christianity told me that she thinks it occurs. I couldn't believe my ears when she said this because if you know christians they believe in nothing but Jesus. Anyway this sparked me to search a little further into the subject. I realized then that reincarnation or its principals are even in the bible. Yep thats right you christians who may be reading this. There are several passages but I'll speak about the one in the new testament when the Jewish religious l... [More]

Ken Korczak, you are a gifted writer. Your stories are plausible and so easy to take literally. I would hate to find that you are just making it all up so brilliantly.
Comment icon #8 Posted by Caana 15 years ago
Ken is not making this up, because there is tons of this kind of thing out there, and because religious prej. does'nt want it excepted, except through there own views, which is apparent with his use of the terminology that was used to describe a possability of what it actually was. If you were to get rid of the religious veil, and it's terminology, as well as any spiritual, and spiritualist deions/beliefs as well, it would be easier to accept what it actually is. I noticed that in the field of hypnotherapy, they don't think of using the time/space explaination. In your mind there is no time, o... [More]

Interesting article posted by Saruman! I have always believed in reincarnation, I must admit. It seems to me that the hypnotherapist could possibly go into other areas within his work. I found it fascinating regarding the two stories of the old woman and the obese lady. He should write a book, it would make intriguing reading.

Thank's for posting the article Saruman. It's just that the Ken guy pointed out some thing's that i saw were significant in the report of his encounter with it. His own atitude was a proffessional, yet he pointed out his rejection of some of the belief structure terminology, which was what i'm getting to with this myself. He showed the way of his own thinking. There are people out there that make what they believe control them to such an extent, that their thinking influence's there proffession, it was a relief to read actually. His refusal to label the experiance himself into a spiritual cont... [More]
