I'm new to this forum, but I've been fascinated by past lives for a long time. I have been regressed--both by regression therapists and by using regression tapes myself. I wanted to share my story and ask a question. One thing that has been recurring throughout my life, ever since I was a little girl, is memories and dreams of World War II. I have always been interested in World War II to an almost obsessive extent, but I have also always experienced a lot of guilt surrounding WWII; I have felt as though I was to blame for what the German army did and what the Nazi party did. I am terrified of loud noises, such as fireworks or gunshots, and I used to have full blown panic attacks whenever planes would fly overhead. Based upon my regressions and dreams I now believe that I experienced a past life as a German fighter pilot, which could be the reason that I am afraid of airplanes. My problem is that the regressions have not helped me overcome these fears, which have, at various points in my life, been almost crippling. From my research, I have read that many phobias are lessened when people link the fears to their past lives and deal with them that way. I guess my question is--how does one overcome phobias and feelings of guilt when regression itself has seemingly not helped?
