Abortion is the focus of discussion, debate, and argumentations today perhaps as never before. It is an explosive emotional issue mired in a confusion of politics, theology, ethics, and traditions which, given contemporary attitudes and polemic polarizations, provokes more heat than light. For PLT practitioners, there are several special issues which Amy Shapiro raises for us to consider as she presents some new insights into this old and difficult dilemma.
As Past-Life Therapists, we can play a unique role in the healing process concerning pre- and post-abortion dilemmas. Using our navigational skills within the inner realms of spiritual frontiers, we can guide women to see that the Spirit of the unborn soul to whom they may deny entrance does not die, but goes on to where it may be more welcome…or may wait for that woman to become its mother when the timing is better for the family as a whole. By being facilitators to help women communicate with their “unborn” babies, we foster hope, understanding, and the kind of grace that enables a woman to move beyond pain and into a state of forgiveness, if need be, and peace. It is a great challenge for us as professionals in this important metaphysical realm, one that is enormously worthwhile for both the past-life therapist and client.
