It is not uncommon in the practice of psychology for clients to feel stuck. Often these people have sought numerous traditional approaches in resolving their difficulties. More integrative therapists have recognized that the spirit is a part of the whole and needs to heal as well. Past life regression is one pathway to achieving this goal and getting "unstuck." Past life memories can be recovered spontaneously through exposure to a sensory stimulus, through dreams, meditation, or facilitated by hypnosis in psychotherapy. Admittedly, this is a controversial concept in psychology. Whether one believes in past lives or not is actually irrelevant. As a technique, it has helped many people.
