I have been practicing different kinds of meditation for years, and I have never had problems or experienced resistance with it. Meditation has always been helpful to me, and I have gotten good results with it. So I decided to try regression with a self-hypnosis tape, which I myself had recorded. There was one particular problem I wanted to examine by regressing to my past lives: a troublesome relationship with a man, whom I shall call “M.”
M. is a nervous, intense, emotional person. He gets hurt easily, and works very hard, because even though his family is well-off he is terrified of becoming poor. I had met him two years before, and from the start he was very insistent that he and I were “made for each other,” or at least, that I “was made for him.” I had no such feelings about him, but he said that didn’t matter, sooner or later I would realize that we were meant for each other. M. said he had known this since the moment he met me. He felt that he had been born waiting for me, and that he would continue to wait forever if he must, but he knew we were destined to be together. He had made several serious proposals of marriage, despite my disinterest. The strength of his intensity frightened me; he seemed to turn up everywhere I went, and I was feeling more and more disturbed by the situation. I was especially disturbed because I myself was happily engaged and this seemed to be completely unimportant to M.
