It is very difficult to explain a session of PLR since each one can be very different: calming, exciting, enlightening, relaxing, inspirational, and fun, are all descriptions used by people who experience the process.
Interestingly, over 60% of bookings are made by friends and family as an exciting gift for an adventurous loved one.
1Dr. Wambach was one of the earliest scientific researchers into PLR. Her book, Life before Life was published in 1978 (she also wrote: Reliving Past Lives – The evidence under hypnosis)
Victor Zammit describes Wambach’s research thus:
Initially motivated by a desire to debunk reincarnation, by doing a scientific analysis on the past lives reported by her 10,000 plus volunteers she came up with some startling evidence in favor of reincarnation:
• 50.6 % of the past lives reported were male and 49.4 % were female — this is exactly in accordance with biological distribution in the population.
• The number of people reporting upper class or comfortable lives was in exactly the same proportion to the estimates of historians of the class distribution of the period.
• The recall by subjects of clothing, footwear, type of food and utensils used was better than that in popular history books. She found over and over again that her subjects knew better than most historians — when she went to obscure experts her subjects were invariably correct.
Her conclusion was:
‘I don’t believe in reincarnation — I know it!’ (Wambach 1978).
