Past Life Healing – The Elephant Man

Do you have to believe in past lives for past life healing to work?

No, not all of my clients believe in reincarnation.  However, if you can open your mind a bit more to believe that the past life stories that Josslyn receives could be a metaphor, symbolic or your mind during a free association of both, to help you deal with what is going on in a life right NOW that may be too painful to deal in any other way, then it makes the experience of past life healing more fun.  But, what truly matters is that healing takes place, and it does!  Whether you believe or not, healing takes place.

Here is the newest addition to my Past Life Healing Notes section of my website.  For more healings to read about go to that section.  There are many great ‘stories’ there.

The Elephant Man

Hope came in for a session experiencing acute back pain.  She said she hadn’t had back pain most of her life until about a year and a half ago when her and her boyfriend Craig started dating.  I did a healing on Hope for an hour and a half.  Here is what I got.

I placed my hands all over her her back.  She saw visions as I saw them, some the same and some different.  Hope has experience in meditation and practicing visualizations so I wasn’t surprised that she was getting visions too.  Here is what we both got.

I saw many lives where she was deformed, I saw hump back lives, scoliosis lives, limping lives, but the one that stuck out the most was the elephant man life.  “The Elephant Man” is a movie that came out in 1980.  I remember it had a very strong effect on me because the man was treated so inhumanely.  Being as sensitive as I am, that deeply affected me as many were by the movies’ content.  Little did I know it would come up so many years later to help me relate to this client’s past life.

Heart renching movie, but totally worth it, with Anthony Hopkins, John Hurt and Anne Bancroft.

The move “The Elephant Man” kept showing up in my head so I told her I believe she had had that disease.  At first I saw her as a man with this disease where the head is oversized.  He was living in a basement type place.  It felt damp and dark and cold and not healthy at all.

As I looked deeper in the life I saw a mother and father having a baby with all the hopes and dreams of a young family having a baby for the first time.  The baby came out deformed.  The mother rejected him completely.  She did not have the strength that was needed to love and accept him.  She was vain and cold and wanted a perfect baby.  The father rejected the baby as well but had some guilt about doing it.

The mother and father allowed the housekeeper to raise the baby, named Charles, in the kitchen.  The housekeeper, Nellie,  mothered the boy best she could and with love.  She gave him chores to do as he got older so he could feel useful and helpful to her.  He somehow knew the other couple in the house were his parents but accepted the love that was available to him.  He was kept out of sight as much as possible but the doctor who came to see him was not a kind man and he gossiped about the deformed boy.  People in the town knew and it got back to Charles and made him ashamed of his body and himself.  He was actually a very kind and gentle boy with a great deal of inner strength to go on with life the way he did.  He was able to revel in the little love he did have.  But at the same time he knew he was different and felt being that his body was deformed, was something to be debased, unloved and rejected by others and by himself.

At age 11 the mother and father sent him away to live at a “school.”  Nellie the housekeeper was very upset by this and didn’t understand why the boy had to go.   She didn’t live long after that, a few years.  Died before mid 50’s truly from sadness from not being able to protect Charles.

While at the “school” he was treated even worse.  The people who ran the school only wanted him if he could work.  He was basically a slave to them and they got paid by his parents to keep him there too.  For his parents it kept him out of sight, out of mind.  Yet, if people in town asked about Charles, his parents could say proudly, “He’s at a special school.” He never went home to visit.  He cleaned the stalls, swept, worked on the tractor, anything and everything he was able to do for them.

The movie "Mask" was another amazing true life story of a boy with the "elephant man" disease. His mom, played by Cher, was a loving light in his life like Nellie and the little girl were to Hope in her past life. Movie also with Eric Stoltz and Sam Elliot.

The one shining light in his life was the owners little girl.  She was a bright light from God and loved him as a brother despite his deformity.  She snuck out to see him in the barn whenever she could just to talk.  They were friends.  Their little visits together kept him going,  gave him hope that things would get better.

Things didn’t get any better in that life.  Charles died at age 18 at that “school”.  I saw that Nellie was there in Heaven to receive him.

We learn from the same soul mates over and over again –

Charles’ father in that life is Hope’s bofriend in this life, Craig.  Her mother in that life is her sister in this life.  The little girl of love and light was Craig’s son and Nellie was Hope’s aunt.  All the personalities and issues Hope has with the people in the past life story match up to their personalities now, she confirmed.

When she got up off of my table, she said her back was straight again.  She said before we started it felt twisted and curved.  The pain was gone.  She was able to walk and sit just like normal with no pain.

And, she said she connected with all the information that we had gotten.  She had seen the hunchback and deformed lives too.  She felt from things Craig has said to her lately that he’d been rejecting her and pushing her aside, just like he did when he was father to Charles.  They are playing it all out again in this life, in a smaller way, until they learn what they need to learn from it.  She felt she had learned a lot and was ready to move to the next level of talking to her boyfriend about it and learning to love her body as Divine Source made her.
