|| Chapter 3
Dr. Schultz is
a Psychiatrist who doesnt quite fit the description of your
typical psych. Dr. He looks, walks and talks as though he is trapped
in the 60s. His hair is brown and collar length. He has sparkly
blue eyes that you could swim in all day. His clothes are always
colourful and full of energy. I admire his freedom of expression.
My friend Sandra recommended him to me after several failed attempts
at meaningful relationships. I never felt comfortable with them..just
never seemed like it was meant to be. I aways believed that I would
meet Mr Right one day. But my clock was ticking and
at 34 and struggling with a career its just not so easy to
get out and meet the guy of your dreams..
Dr. Schultz ( scratching his head)
Well, I have to admit
you are the only person that I have had do a session and this happen.
What are you talking about?
Do you know what past-live regression
Well..Yeah.. Ive read a few
books on past-life regression but what does that have to do with
this? (Pause) Do you think that what I just experienced was me tapping
into my own past lives?
Mr. Schultz(speaking slowly)
Well ..(sighs) thats
what I am beginning to believe. I really dont have experience
in this area but from what I understand about past live regression
it appears that we have tapped into two lives and there is are several
connections between the two. First ..your Scottish and secondly
you have some connection to this Asian person. Do you know any Asian
people in your present live?
Well yes.. I teach English on the side to Asians
living in here in LA. I know many Asians actually. I am still not
understanding what this has to do with my life right now.
Well..Sometimes experiences of past lives are a
source of understanding of our current issues. And from what I am
seeing..Your difficulties with your relationships with other men
are strongly related to this Asian man. Almost as though you have
karmic ties with him. I think if we continue with your hypnosis
sessions then we may see patterns emerge that might give us the
answer to your relationship difficulties right now. The explorations
during hypnosis in this other reality which I am now
refering to as past-lives can possibly open a door way to a solution.
I would recommend that we continue..but if you dont feel comfortable
then I will understand completely.
Its a little frightening..I
admit. But, I think that you might be right all the way. I have
always felt that I was waiting for that one special person. May
be this Asian man is him..who knows (smiles) I cant really
explain it at all. Lets keep the sessions going if you dont
mind. When can I come back?
Good.. Hmm.. let me look at my schedule
book.. How about next Thursday at 4pm? I think that time would be
better for you too right?
Yes. I get finished
at work at 3:30pm so that will give me time to get over here. Is
there anything I need to bring or read do you think?
think so. But it might be a good idea to look through some old family
pictures if you have them. Also, talk to your mother and ask if
you had any relatives from Scotland. I believe most of the time
souls stay within the family tree.. for example. In your last life
your brother may have been your mother. Do you understand?
Jenny is staring
off in disbelieve..trying to grasp the events that she just consumed
with her mind. So many emotions
Yes.. I understand. I will be back
at 4pm Thursday. Thank you so much. (laughs) Gee..I am looking forward
to this Doc!! Maybe I was someone exciting in my past life like..hmm..
Queen Elizabeth or Mary Queen of Scots..oh.. but that of course
would be bad because Mary was beheaded.
Yeah.. I think we might come across something interesting.
See you Thursday.
Jenny grads her
handbag from the corner. She walks out the door down the hallway
and out to the street. She feels a certain feeling of excitement
inside. She looks around and sees her Volks Wagon beetle. When she
walks across the parking lot. She is watching people walk by on
the street. She feels disassociated from normal life. She is recalling
her fear sitting in the shelter but also her pleasure at meeting
the young Chinese boy on the dock that day in 1792! She snickers
and turns the key..
