I came to see Lorna, as I am a deeply spiritual person, but felt that I was not progressing with my spiritual work. Like there was a big black void I could not shift. I experienced a difficult childhood, suffering sexual abuse, but I have worked very hard to overcome this issue. I had visited many therapists and healers and actually felt confident I had moved past these issues. But, there was still something not quite right in my life....there was still always a sense of disillusionment, frustration, lack of confidence, fear and just plain not being happy with my life. During my regression I was shown 2 past lives. One life showed me as a young somewhat odd girl who was deeply gifted with healing abilities, but who was hunted down and killed for being what she was. This life showed me my great capacity for spiritual gifts. I was also shown a life of a nun who was quite unlikeable, arrogant and who mistreated others in her confused state of religious fervour. She was killed by another....stabbed right in the heart. I was shown this life after I had engaged in an angry debate with my spirit guides and I realised I had lost faith in humanity.
Lorna asked my spirit guides if I had been on earth in other lives and they confirmed that I had experienced many lives of spiritual persecution, but I had in fact moved on from incarnating on earth and had been living on another planet in a more spiritually evolved, free existence. This was why I felt so unhappy here....I am not from here!
Although I was shown these two life experiences, the most important and transformative part of the regression occurred for me when during the regression I was feeling completely lost and confused by the anguish of these lives and my guides entered to assist me with some powerful understandings. My guide, Sarah, actually sent healing energy through my voice, to help calm my panicked self. (I was completely shocked by this)At another point I had the most incredible experience of my physical body completely transforming itself into light....I felt incredibly powerful vibrations suffuse me and lift my consciousness up into my higher self, where I was able to engage in conversation with my guides. As I lifted to this spiritual plane I got to experience my soul as it truly is....free and beautiful and creative. I heard my true soul name...Aya.(sounds like aahaya). It was completely extraordinary!
It was during this time I was suddenly and completely aware that I had been asked to return to earth to assist with helping to raise the consciousness of earth at this time. I understood that I am helping to hold vibrations which affect others unconsciously. However, when I came to this realisation, I was initially extremely angry about this. I felt angry that I was sent to Earth. Angry about the limitations of the physical body, angry at the difficult life I had been living. My guides helped me to realise that I had made this choice, and that these choices had in fact lead me to awaken spiritually very early in life, and that was a part of the plan. It is the forgetfulness of human existence which had been my problem all along. I was angry at the universe for being stuck here. But now I get it
During the regression, Lorna asked the guides to help me understand my purpose, and to release the anger, as I was really struggling to understand and let go. I then got to experience another amazing healing experience when some more of my guides came in and I joined my energy with them and they sent me beautiful beams of healing light to me. I was aware that this light was filled with some kind of symbols and codes. I did not understand what it was or what it was doing, but I could feel it infuse me and change me and it stayed with me for hours after the session ended.
I gave it a couple of weeks, to see if the glowing buzz I felt was going to wear off. For the first few days I felt like I was high, my sense of connection to the universe was so powerful. I then settled into my life and even found myself confronted with a few difficult family dilemmas and although I was upset by them, my capacity to see clearly (and quickly) past the issues and resolve them and my emotions was astounding. I find myself happy...such a simple statement, but truly profound for those of us who live in states of anxiety and depression (and yes...anger!). I feel now that I can accept myself for who I am. I also feel somewhat as if the burden of purpose has gone. I can just live my life, yet paradoxically, I feel more motivated to actually pursue my dreams.
This was truly one of the powerfully transformative experiences of my life. Thank you for helping to facilitate this for me Lorna, and if anyone is reading this any considering taking this journey I can certainly recommend Lorna....but just remember, it might just change your life! M...
I came for a past life regression out of curiosity and as part of my spiritual growth.The session gave me tremendous insight into what I needed to work on and was very beneficial. I was not very visual, I think I felt more and had an inner knowing about some things. During the session, it wasn’t until Lorna asked me how I felt, that it started to come out. I felt alone, afraid, and had no voice. I felt that I was only here to work and not to have fun. I feel that I rely too heavily on my work speaking for itself, rather than using my voice and being courageous enough to speak up.
I had a strong feeling after the session that I needed to create a vision board of statements (and perhaps pictures) of how I wanted to feel in this lifetime. It is the feelings that I will take with me to the other side and to future lives and this is what I needed to work on. I am creating a Vision Board with statements such as, I am strong and courageous, and including pictures of people with qualities I admire and aspire to be like, which will evoke feelings, of who I want to be right now and in the future. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I feel like I am now heading in the right direction. Donna
I’d just like to thank you Lorna. The Past Life Regression session was so helpful, I found major issues from two previous lives had collided in this life. Although the lives were very different the issues were similar. All the guilt that I had carried for so long, was in fact not mine to carry. Once I was able to identify this, it was easy to overcome. I now have a completely different way of looking at things, I’m far more lay back.
The complexities of some of my relationships now make perfect sense and with understanding comes forgiveness and peace in situations. I can now look back over the last 44 years and see the lessons that were to be learned and hopefully I’m on my way to crossing those life lessons off my list. I now know that the hardest part of my life is behind me and that life now is how it was meant to be. I now have the people in my life who are suppose to be here, I can easily accept their love and am able to love them without fear of rejection . Knowing that you have spent previous life’s with loved ones is a pleasant surprise – My brother in this life was my father in a previous life and that explains why he has always had a “Father Concern” for me. It also explains why my husband and I could finish each other’s sentences on our first date ?. I have also been able to verify details that I gave during the session via historical records.
For the last 10 years I’ve suffered severe Rosacea on my face. It was so unsightly and the embarrassment of people staring made me so self conscious. I rarely went out in public and tended to socially isolate myself. The pain was also unbearable it was just never ending. Since my session it has calmed down to the point that I am able to cover it with makeup and it is unnoticeable. I’m able to use treatment cream now that have just been too painful to use in the past. But the biggest change is that the pain has gone completely and that was instant. Without the constant pain the rest is easy. Kathryn Samuels, Jimboomba, Brisbane.
Hi Lorna, I was a participant in your group past life regression in the Tipi at the Harmony Health Soul Expo at the Gold Coast convention centre January 2011. I was too 'zonked' to speak up after the session, but I really wanted to thank you. I could not belive how well the regression worked, it was my first experience. The question I had set was 'why don't I trust myself' and thanks to you I have found the answer. In the life I went back to I was a 15 yr old girl in the Iron Age. I lost my 4yr old brother in the forest and he was never found. Knowing this has let me start to let go of my fears of my own judgments. Thank you so much. Cate.
Thank you so much for the soul work I did with you Lorna. The insights and clarity I got from both the Past Life Regression and the Life Between Lives sessions has really changed my life. Quite honestly the realisations I got from the sessions were mind-blowing. Suddenly, so many confusing aspects of my life made perfect sense.
The information has helped me to get context and make sense of this life, which has enabled me to make clear decisions about my future. It also allowed for a great deal of healing.
Having planned an interstate move before our sessions, having the opportunity to speak to my spirit guides and get some guidance was so valuable. Interestingly, what they told me happened as they said it would, and within the timeframe they gave me.
I am now a true believer :) ...it’s definitely not hocus-pocus, but it sure is magical! Danielle Rodgers, Tasmania.
Hi Lorna, I want to thank you for the LBL session last Wednesday. That night when I was sleeping some interesting information 'downloaded'. The following day I was really tired - but slept like a baby last night. And feel great today.
I was thinking about my past life as Saul Preston revealed during the LBL session. I wanted to know the name of the town where Saul Preston came from. Immediately the names Danfield and Durham came to mind. I checked it up in the internet and it is a town/district in north east England. Then I put in Saul Preston, the town and the year he would have died and all the information came up in the death register in that time period. I didn't pay the money to go into the details - thinking that was enough information to be way beyond coincidence.
I also checked the internet regarding the navy vessels in the regression.
There was a US ship 'Princeton' in the Korean war and WW11. Apparently clearance was given to sink merchant vessels that were suspected of carrying contraband related to the war(!!) I guess crew members weren't privy to that kind of classified information at that time - no wonder Saul was so confused after the death, his ship being sunk by an allied vessel.
The name Maidenhead was not a merchant ship as I thought in the regression - but it is a town in England where all information relating to merchant navy ships and UK navy ships is held. I daresay, if I went through the records, Saul Preston would turn up there too. But enough is enough. I just wanted to let you know, in case it may be relevant to any research for your book. I thought it fascinating to be able to check it up on the internet. I just had to when I received the names of the town and district after asking where Saul came from. Just glad my last incarnation wasn't centuries ago!! Might be a bit more difficult to look it up.
Also I gained information regarding my reluctance to move beyond the death scene. During the regression, I believed it was due to guilt at drowning myself and leaving my mates in the water to fend for themselves - and not helping them reach the one lifeboat in the water. I thought I was afraid of being taken to the bottom when the ship sank and wanted to end it before that happened. That may have been in Saul's mind at the time too - but when I reviewed the scene again in closer detail, I saw the water blood red and sharks having a feeding frenzy. The scene was filled with chaos of those trying to reach the boat and lots of fear. Saul drowned himself to prevent being eaten alive. This explains so many of my dreams about sharks all of my life. I'm not afraid of the ocean and swimming where sharks live - but in my dreams I'm terrified of sharks and have had many sweaty nights waking from such dreams over the years. VERY INTERESTING!! So much has been answered as a result of that session.
And that only covers the past life regression aspect. The spiritual aspect just keeps on unfolding. More information has 'downloaded' that has explained much more about the energy connection between the 'pods'.
Again thank you. Kind Regards, Kathy Warwick, QLD
Lorna Simmons assisted me at a time when I could not find a way forward in my present life. By enabling me to access an immediate past life, I was able to understand the incomplete issues arising from that life, and to see clearly the tasks I have undertaken in this current life. Seeing these themes gave me an ‘eagle perspective’ on my current life. I was able to soar above what is real to me at present, to view my current life as just another of the world’s many illusions. As a result, I have a greater freedom about how I choose to live my life. I am grateful to Lorna for her professional approach, her clarity around past life regression, and her ability to assist me to find a way forward. Christine, Brisbane.
During the past life regression session with Lorna, i was training to be a healer and i guess this just cemented some of the things i now do. By the way, i looked up the details and area where i lived in the past life on the net and they seemed very genuine. I think you are doing a great job. I still hand out Michael Newtons books all the time. I just know that your work is very useful.... Cheers, Morna, Vic.
My name is Tracey Begley and I am currently 42yrs old and living in Brisbane, Australia with my parents since 1977 from Glasgow, Scotland. I am not married and single. I decided to go through a past life regression session with Lorna to find out the answers to some of the issues that have been happening in my current life..
I have always been feeling a sense of helplessness, emptiness in my life and feeling as if something was missing and not fitting in. As a result of the past life regression i underwent a series of approx 4 lives which i have lived in the past and all carrying a familiar pattern of being left alone and carrying a lot of burden and guilt responsibility. i was certainly not prepared for what the regression revealed.
first life regressed - Victorian era, year unknown
I describe i am wearing a long black dress which is very heavy, my hair is long and black and pinned up with a hat. i state that i am getting into the car but not knowing where i am going nor do i know the driver. I am in the back seat of the car. I also see horses and carriages and other old cars.
second life regressed - year unknown.
I am walking in a park with lots of leaves which i could describe as central park new york, my name is Judy and i am 20. I am walking and i see this beautiful angelic little boy. I am waving to him and he is waving to me and the next minute the boy is being taken away - kidnapped. Lorna brings me back into this life again and i see two people take the boy, male and female but cannot see the faces clearly and i realise this is my boy. My boy is 5yrs old - blonde hair with blue eyes and his name was Christopher with blue boots, pants and jacket to match with his hat. The tears flew down my face in the session as Lorna was talking to me as i watched my son being taken away right from me in the park i feel helpless and powerless to stop it and i say in the session someone call the police. my husband in this life never forgave me for the loss of our son Christopher and leaves me. I lived until 70 in this life.
third life regressed 1816 France
I am living in France (1816) just before the french revolution i am the first lady and wife of Frederick a French diplomat and my name is Marianne. My husband is killed during the war as he states he has to leave me and never returns. again i am left alone to handle the castle estate and servants. i also describe the dress i am wearing at a particular ball which my husband organised as green silk and the necklace i am wearing is pearls and an emerald. no children were borne in this life to Frederick. Marianne lived until she was 50 and died peacefully in her sleep.
fourth life regressed 1920 Norfolk, England
I am in my 80s and taking my last breath in this particular life. i had a happy life with no regrets with my husband john who passed before me. i describe the surroundings of my sitting room in Norfolk, England where i am peacefully asleep in my chair with my glasses on. As i am about to take my last breath and floating from above - i see my husband calling to me and my grandparents from my current life.
fifth life regressed - 1950 California - Florida
The 1950s in the USA - west coast of Florida and I am an 16yr old teenager called Judy skating amongst the palm tress and the sea. i sit down and rest and then i get up to go for an ice cream at one of the very famous cafe parlours. I proceed to skate towards the cafe its very busy and lots of atmosphere. people are dancing everywhere with the bright coloured patterned skirts. I order my ice cream and proceed to leave because i only have shorts and a t shirt on i am embarrassed to go in and dance. as i make my way out to cross the road i see a pink cadiallac coming towards me. i state to Lorna in the session under this life - i am not going to make it. the car wont stop. It hits me and i cannot see the driver and i am on the ground. There are lots of people, screaming and chaos. i hear the ambulance. Lorna asks again are you ok now that the ambulance is there. I say no i am not going to make it.
I found the whole experience thoroughly soul cleansing and it has answered and explained a lot of things that have been happening in my current life. I now know through the regression not to carry on forward any more the guilt and hurt and responsibility of these past lives. to appreciate the people and surroundings in my life and communicate more. (2010).
Below is an interesting and detailed account of one of my clients LBL sessions...if your thinking of doing an LBL you need to read this...
I had three life themes that have challenged me since I was a teenager: not knowing what I wanted to do with my life; being stuck in financial survival mode; and relentless fatigue. I've felt unhappy and unfulfilled and incredibly blocked, and have sought answers through self help books, meditation, journaling, seeing doctors about my fatigue, and clairvoyants to give me hope that things would change - that there was something more exciting to I could look forward to than the drudgery of my day to day life. It wasn't as though I was sitting around waiting for something to happen, though. I explored different jobs, went to University, became an advertising copywriter, and taught English overseas, yet my restless unhappiness followed me everywhere. I kept thinking, "This isn't it - this isn't the thing I'm meant to be doing, the thing that will bring me joy." No job fulfilled the yearning in my heart. No choice I made eased the financial limitations I had unconsciously created. Those heavy blocks didn't budge! How I envied a dear friend who knew what she wanted to do with her life when she was just 6 years old! Her calling was always clear; it came from within. Why didn't I know what my calling was? Oh, the frustration of not knowing! And then of making so many choices that only added to my unhappiness.
I first heard of past life and life-between-lives regression while living in Chile. A pioneering author on the subject, Brian Weiss', MD, is very popular over there. I read one of his books and was thrilled. Here was a chance for me to communicate with my higher self - my true self - directly, not to mention my guide, spiritual elders, and any Master I might happen to meet. This was the first time I had ever been hypnotised. Lorna began by taking me back through happy childhood memories of this life, then briefly through a past life to the moment my soul left my body at death, and then on my soul's journey to my life-between-lives.
I saw my past life as a series of visual impressions that took me a little while to trust. I didn’t glean the incredible detail that many people do - some of Lorna’s clients have been able to find actual historical records of the life they remembered! But then I confess I was impatient to reach my life-between-lives – and, oh, what a wonderful experience. I saw and felt things in vivid detail. Such peace, love, freedom and joy… a sense of being the real me, free from my self-created dramas…all the things I’d been seeking here were there!
In soul state, I saw myself and the beings I met as shining light. I was thrilled to be accompanied by my loving guide. (It now seems silly to have searched for my guide here when we have known each other forever!) We moved into a garden where other radiant beings awaited. They encircled me and sent me healing rainbow light. We then embraced like old friends – we were old friends! And I sensed that I, too, was one who transmitted healing rainbow light. This was a role we shared. I learned my soul name – Aia. (I am Aia, I am Aia! Simply repeating this now reconnects me with the peaceful freedom of my life between lives and opens me up to receiving rainbow light.)
When I was ready, my guide accompanied me to meet the Elders – that’s the name I called them under hypnosis. Five of them stood before me in an arc, radiating gentle strength and infinite wisdom. I wasn’t afraid or awed, but both joyful and reverent in their presence. I felt their love for me. Together, we acknowledged that I had work to do to get Denise back on track.
Lorna asked me what my purpose was in this life, and my higher self responded that it was to convey new information to help co-create a peaceful, joyful world. Lorna asked why I was chosen for this role, and I replied that I had volunteered. I sensed that the information I was to convey was being transmitted on this rainbow light, and that there was a backlog waiting to be downloaded! I had the extraordinary experience of being aware of my soul / higher self there and my incarnation here. From my soul’s perspective, I saw myself, Denise, enveloped in an egg-shaped, grey cloud – a storm of self-created lack and limitation. The luminescent rainbow light being transmitted to me was deflecting right off my shell; it couldn’t get in. I was literally seeing my block! When Lorna asked me under hypnosis how I could remove this block, my higher self answered in essence, “By consciously receiving the rainbow light.”
After my hypnosis session, I remembered a vision I saw in meditation years earlier. I had seen a desk by a window, and on it were books I had written. The books were open, and from the pages rainbow light flowed out the window and into the world. Before we left to return to this life, Lorna asked me to look around me in case there was anything else I needed to know. To my surprise, I saw a gold key suspended in the air. “There’s a key – they’ve given me a key.” Lorna asked me what it was for, but I couldn’t glean the answer. So, it is to be a surprise!
The session made me powerfully aware of our capacity as human beings to be channels of light, to receive loving energy and to release it out into the world. By allowing myself to become so blocked to receiving this energy, I had also blocked my ability to share it with others. This was the reason for my fatigue, financial limitation and lack of joy in my work. Sure, I had read similar things in books, but it was my personal, graphic experience of this truth that was transformative for me. Hypnosis allowed this realisation to bypass my intellect and enter my heart.
Lorna is one of few hypnotists in Australia trained by the Michael Newton Institute. I had read Dr Newton's books on life between lives regression, and found the author to be credible (Dr Newton holds a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and is a qualified Master Hypnotherapist). It gave me confidence knowing that Lorna had trained with the Institute. After reading through Lorna's well written website and seeing her photo, I had a really good feeling about her. And I was right! I found her to be approachable, genuinely caring and professional - someone I could trust with the very personal information I was to share before and during hypnosis. I found Lorna to be the ideal guide for my inner journey, giving me the space to explore and intuitively asking the right questions at the right moment to elicit the information that would help me most.
After the session, Lorna took the time to discuss with me what I had experienced and how I might use it to make the changes I was seeking in my life. Her insights were very helpful and resonated with my own.
Since my session, I’ve found my shift in awareness alone has been a catalyst for change. A short reflection on peace I wrote is finding its way around the world; I finally created my website after thinking about it for two years; a wonderful life coach has offered to coach me; I’m becoming conscious of and releasing my entrenched patterns and dramas; I’m keeping old promises and returning to projects I’d started and not finished with a real sense of purpose. Best of all, I feel connected to my guide, my true self, and to the loving realm I entered with Lorna’s help. Each day I pause and say, “I am Aia,” and feel the rainbow light flowing through me.
I do believe this was a worthwhile experience because I am taking positive action as a result. Action is key. I feel as though I’ve had the epiphany I’d been waiting for. Lea, Gold Coast.
What bought me to do an PLR session with Lorna was my friend Lesley, she gave me a book to read years ago called "Yesterday's Children" by Jenny Cockell. This book was just amazing, we used to discuss together how we both believe we had lived before many times. I then went on to buy and read all of Dr. Brian Weiss's books, and confirmed what I always felt. The first time Lesley and I ever met it was like "seeing each other again". Hard to explain, and we would and still do even finish each other's sentences before one of us could finish it.
During the PLR Lorna guided me back in time through my childhood and into the womb of my mother just before my birth. I recovered some memories that I did not remember before the session and I have spoken to my mother since about my childhood. To my surprise she validated everything I experienced right down to which side of the yard I saw the mulberry tree, where I saw the lemon tree (which I couldn’t see if it was lemon or oranges as I felt it was both).
They had both there in the garden and one had died mum said. Also which side of the house was the copper she did the washing in when we went down the back steps. She told me she was overwhelmingly sad at living on the farm at Burleigh Heads, which I felt under hypnosis, and also she validated every part of each memory I had.
Having said that, she thinks I am nuts and doesn’t believe in life after death, but can’t explain how I knew these things, even down to the experiences I was having during my birth.
I have been doing some research on google earth since my session and I discovered the location where I lived. The place was called Lavella and is indeed a very, very old name.
I also found the village where I died: ULMICH, it is located in Austria and only very small, I would say less than 100 people. It is not far from Innsbruk which I actually visited in 2004. Also doing research back to the 1500’s, the countries of Lithuania, Czechoslovakia, Poland were all one nation then, so where trying to distinguish Poland and Czechoslovakia where I was living was difficult for me has now become so much more obvious.
I also discovered that where I was living in the forest, in the hut shaped (oval) is actually called a YURT or GER. The people were nomadic which explains why I felt we had just camped there. I couldn’t see what else was on the oval huts, beside the straw which was put over the top, but I knew there was something else there.
It is clear in my mind now that I have seen pictures of them that it was animal skins. The YURTS were made of animal hides, and straw was put over the top for extra warmth in winter.
I received a text from my son on the way home from the session which said “I don’t know what you did in hypnosis, but I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders”. He didn’t know anything about anything I had experienced because I hadn’t spoken or text him!...Thank you so much Lorna, and I am looking forward to my LBL session. Cathy, Gold Coast.
I’ve had the pleasure of undertaking both a PLR & LBL session under Lorna’s guidance and to put it quite simply, the experience has changed my life. The sessions helped me to understand and overcome certain unexplained fears that were affecting my present life experience, as well as give me an amazing insight into my life purpose and the future direction my current life may take. Lorna is an excellent clinical hypno-therapist and I highly recommend her services. It truly was a mind blowing experience that helps you to look at the ‘bigger picture. A, Brisbane
I recently had the experience of a Life Between Life regression with Lorna Simmons. I've been hypnotised before, but this was by far the deepest level to which I've been taken, and what emerged were profound and positive insights into my most important personal issues. I also 'saw' clearly and concretely that I (and not only I) am capable of a profound transformation within the core of my being, right here in this life, in the midst of ordinary everyday existence. Lorna's approach is gentle and not at all invasive, thereby faciltating insight and self-understanding: and she does this very well indeed. Laurence Browne, Brisbane.
I want to thank you Lorna for the LBL session I had with you in November 2009, It has helped me a lot. The deep grieving feeling I have had for years, which I thought came from losing my children to their father, has gone. This has allowed me to see the role I played as their mother in a more realistic way. I can see now that my fears of losing them, particularly my first born, was connected (either completely or partially) to a past life experience of having a baby die from illness, and my feelings of worthlessness and guilt associated with this. Even though the grieving has gone, the problems I have created for myself and my children because of the grieving are still there. This gives me new challenges to deal with, so I don't feel instant relief, rather a lot more clarity about what I need to do....always learning!
At present, I don't feel the need to fix up the past. Instead, I am coming to terms with the damage done. It is a relief to be able to accept it, rather than constantly going "back" to work out what went wrong. The benefits from the LBL session has been extremely helpful to me. Other interesting benefits have been that I am more aware of how I am influenced by what I think other people think about me. I am gradually learning to stop this way of thinking because of my new awareness, and feel more confident and stronger in my own beliefs.
I was on anti-depressants for a couple of years and am now weaning myself off them, with good results. I feel like I have more energy and feelings, but at the same time have greater control over my feelings (something I struggled with before the LBL). Alison Brown, QLD.
