The health insurance industry may feel that hypnotherapy is an "experimental" modality without proven consistently effective results.
Here's the statement from my insurer (Cigna) on hypnotherapy:

Many plans do cover hypnotherapy - but the provider needs to be a medical or mental health professional, not a layperson who went to "Billy Bob's Learn Hypnosis Fast!" school. That's the difference between hypnosis (which anyone can learn to do) and clinical hypnotherapy.

The second stumbling block is review by the insurance company: They'll only cover under a policy if a treatment is deemed medically necessary. Wanting to see who one was in a past life would not be deemed medically necessary - neither would hypnotherapy associated with self improvement (like to increase one's confidence as a public speaker). Here's Cigna's discussion of medical necessity:

That makes sense, Vasily. Thanks for this important info.

Actually, that's not true. That's just the popular stereotype, to make fun of it. There are plenty of cases where someone recalled being in the middle of a war of some sort, and being killed in battle, just a regular Joe warrior or soldier. Or farmer. Or whatever. It sounds like you're confusing bona fide hypnotherapy/past life regression with the psychics' schtick of clairvoyantly (supposedly) telling the client they were someone important in a past life. Those are two very different, completely unrelated things.

How Christian of you. Can you hear Jesus Christ telling someone to "buck up"?

I am a Christian, but the loving, caring kind. Not the judgmental, condemning, hellfire and brimstone type.
Those people are "Christian" in name only.

I am secure in my Christianity. Secure enough to be able to explore and enjoy other belief systems without fear.

What did the apostle Paul say about fear?

1 John:4 16-18.

If they do not cover you then check out the "Christos Experiment" which does the same kind of thing as regression therapy.

You will need another couple of people who are also interested and they facilitate and 'guide' you, so you need to trust them. I haven't done it but it may be worth investigating and some academics have written on it notably from Edinburgh University, Scotland I believe.

I have posted links to this in a couple of other posts.

Hmmm..I liked his post, and agree with it.



All this past life stuff (imo) is just another form of escapism. I like how he put emphasis on present accountability.

Oh well. His words remain and still annoy. So do the constant skeptics and those who demand that "Scientific Method" be applied to that which is not scientific.

It never ends.

I can't imagine the uproar if Christians, Jews, or Muslims were attacked in the Religious forum.

I wish they didn't get their kicks this way. Maybe I'll post in psychology? That might be best.

Some people say that we actually get to choose the kind of environment we get to be birthed into on Earth. This is so we can have the best possible chances of learning the lessons we need to learn.

Of course, you have to believe in reincarnation to believe that and Christians dont. However, in my opinion, it makes far more sense than a one-time one-chance lifetime.

Of course it's safe. What possible harm could come to you from imagining things that never happened?
