I have read many books on reincarnation and past life regression therapy. The stories are usually intriguing. Here, though, I was rather bored. I'm not sure why. Perhaps I just couldn't identify with any of the anecdotes.
My main issue, however, was with the idea of repetition and Cohen's ideas of how to "overcome" it, which seem (to me, anyway) like an attempt to override the inherent wisdom of our soul. If reincarnation is true, then repetition may indeed be a factor. However, Cohen seems to view it as a bad thing, a cycle that must be broken out of. How are we supposed to do this? By remembering a past trauma and experiencing the associated "emotional charge". Only then, she claims, can we break free of the cycle of repetition. To me, this makes little sense and seems akin to re-traumatizing ourselves. Our minds can suppress events in this life that may be harmful for us to remember; our souls may do the same thing with regards to past lives. Trying to override that mechanism for a quick fix seems arrogant at best, and potentially dangerous at worst. Repetition, as painful and monotonous as it may seem, sounds like a much gentler way of dealing with what our souls have chosen to deal with. Do we cure PTSD patients by throwing them back onto the battlefield so they can re-experience the "emotional charge" that hurt them in the first place? Of course not. So why should we attempt to do something similar when it comes to past lives? (Note that I'm not saying that we shouldn't remember things at all. Past life regression therapy depends on remembering.Read more ›
