How I did it: I always believed in past lives, and I respect it if people around me don't, too, so if you do not believe, I won't blame you (This is not a question about belief whatsoever, as it is my own experience after all).
The thing is, I had recurring dreams of "myself" as a little child, about me in the past, and I was grown-up, accused of being a witch. I didn't know anything about the witch huntings those days, nor have I ever seen scenes like back then, not on TV nor anywhere else. I also sometimes talked about past lives with my sister when I was a child. It was just normal to me/us, and nothing odd or so.
Ever since I heard that it is possible to look into past lives through hypnosis, I did find it interesting but I also heard some horror stories about people dying during the hypnosis because they experienced their past-life death again, people not "coming back" from hypnosis, and so on. So I also got really scared.
However, the subject itself didn't leave me, and at some point I stumbled over a thread on the internet, which was on Dr. Brian Weiss. I started reading some of his books, and later on also tried a guided meditation and/or hypnosis in order to find out what would come up to me.
And I did see some things, I could at least manage to figure out some things that have been going on in several past lives of mine. It was interesting, and no, I didn't die, and yes, I am back from the hypnosis now :). So far, the memories also helped me make connections to the past concerning topics that are important in my life right now.
Thing is, it is more like remembering something and concentrating on this memory to find out more about it in itself than whatever people imagine hypnosis to be like! And I am still not 100% done, but I would definitely call it "done" right now, as I do remember some sequences of lives I have never really looked into. Read how I did it… 13 months ago
