    I have tried 3 times today using a YouTube video with a very soothing voice to have a past life regression. I get really into it fast, am calm and feel like I'm floating away or falling into a deep sleep but then I'll hear a tiny noise or feel suddenly uncomfortable in my body so I lose focus and its really annoying. When I got that part about seeing shoes I felt that I was making things up with my own imagination than actually letting it come to me, its like impossible for me to shut of my thoughts, my mind is constantly in hyper drive. I saw bare feet in the sand and muscular hairy legs (man obviously) before I started putting on different shoes and trying to work out an era. The dude I imagined myself to be was butt-naked so I felt like I should put some clothes on him which totally messed up everything. I write a lot of stories/film scripts so its like the creative/imagination part of my brain can't shut off and interferes with the regression. I got very angry after the 3rd try, like really easily agitated and felt like shouting, probably not a good sign.

    I don't know if the bare feet were genuine but I want to believe (High five Agent Mulder...I keep using this expression recently and just read it in another post which I just wanted to make a note of because I thought it was a really freaky coincidence lol).

    Any tips on how to stop my mind from going nuts?

    What I did is I promised myself I could turn it into a story later to explain the experience to others, but I wasn't going in for a fantasy experience, but a raw experience of the inner workings of my mind.

    Instead of trying to interpret or storify, tell yourself you're going to see what happens. No judging. No guessing if it's imagination or not. No predicting what will happen next or trying to edit the story before it's captured. You're just experiencing a life. Even if you're convinced you're making it up, be curious what your imagination can do when you remove the limits and just watch. You're the observer, not the actor this time around. Be curious.... Be curious. Be curious!

    If you show up naked, the response is "oh? how interesting! Why naked?" not "If it was me I'd be dressed. Put some clothes on!" There's no point in being embarrassed. At this point, if it's a past life memory, it's already happened and part of history. Now it's just story, and judging the characters in a story for living the way they live just blocks the experience of reading it for what it is.

    Example: You've walked into an art gallery of completed work. To edit them is the equivalent of adding your own touches to Rembrandt's paintings. That's not what this experience is for. You're not there to judge the characters for dressing the way they did or correct history for portraying itself with biased eyes; you're there to understand, to come back and write a report on the meaning in the paintings that caught your eye.

    It's a minor shift, but it may help.

    You can research, organize, and judge it all later. That's stage two, after you write it down.

    Hi Miss Kelly

    I agree with what MD has said. Very good advice.

    I will add, it takes a little bit of practice to just 'let go' of your critical thoughts - Is this right? Is it working? Am I doing it right?

    Learning to just let go is not easy. We don't get any practice at turning off our thoughts and just letting them go quiet. Everything is always busy and noisy in our world. But, with a bit of practice, you can learn to 'turn down the volume' on those thoughts. Just note them, and go... ssshh now, don't interupt and then gently slip back into the 'zone' again.

    Have another try in a while when you are 'in the mood'. You will know when it feels like a good time. Don't try to do it if you are in a hurry or in a place where you might get interupted. Try to have some quiet time for an hour or so before if you can. No screens. Write in your journal, read a book, no music on. Just quiet.

    Then, when you have another go, don't worry if it's your imagination or maybe something you saw in a movie or whatever. Just ignore all that and 'go into it'. Just be noting down what happens so you can write it up in your journal later. You can worry about analysing it all then to your heart's content.

    Good luck

    I get it, Miss K, as an artist it's hard to trust that I'm not just making up stories. I am able to relax enough after exercising my physical self to not over think the experience. Keep trying, because when you start to get clues of your past lives it's awesome.

    Also know that it doesn't always work the first time. When I first tried doing self-regression many years ago listening to a cassette tape, it took 3 tries before it worked. When it did work I saw pictures in my mind's eye like a slide show. The pictures were in color with no sound. But I somehow "knew" the details in the picture. When the narrator asks questions like "What is your name?", "Where are you?", What are you doing?", "What year is it?", the answers immediately pop into your head.
