The BookIt seemed to convince the readers about the therapeutic consequences of hypnotic regression. Some of it did sound out of the world to me. But when a TV reality show tried to draw public attention to hypnotic regression, I thought of giving it a real hard look.
NDTV imagine had come up with a new reality show called Raaz PichleJanam Ka. The aim of this show was to unlock the secrets of theparticipant’s past life. The show was hosted by famous Bhojpuri filmstarr, Ravi Kishan, while the past life regression sessions wereconducted by Mumbai-based psychologist Dr Trupti Jain. Celebrities likeShekhar Suman, Monica Bedi, Celina Jaitley and Nauman Sait hadparticipated in the show. At the same time, to make things look more close to earth, the common people were alllowed toparticipate once they got selected through phone-in.
The show title
RAAZ PICHLE JANAM KA
(Dr.Tripti Jain conducting a session in the show)
In the show, Dr. Tripti Jain would take the participant into in astate of progressive relaxation, followed by an alpha-theta meditationthrough the visualisation of light and then taken back into the pastfears to know the reason for things that trouble them in this birth.Sounds controversially interesting! Many experts have ever since the onset of the show, are vehemently claiming that NDTV imagine isspreading superstition through this show.
Now we come to the westerner's part. Treating patients by guiding them through recollections of their previous lives is just about the last thing Dr Brian
Weiss thought he would be doing.
A prominent South Florida psychiatrist, before the age of 35 he was the first Chief of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and a professor at the University of Miami's medical school. He was publishing papers and becoming a nationally recognised expert on psychopharmacology and considered himself the kind of guy who rarely gave much thought to anything mystical, philosophical or spiritual.
But with strange encounters and revelations coming out of them, he soon found himself at cross section- namely between the mystic, the spiritual and so as to say, the Psychic realms.for those of you, who might want to read his observations, are welcome to look for his books, both online and in the several major book stores of your hometown.
The recent TV show too tried its level best to get us in to a different world. Namely it made great efforts take us to the past, with a promise to heal the transcend-ers' specified agonies.
Did the hoard of semi popular celebrities create a special effect, did they really helped to boost the TRP rates?
Ravi KishanDid the baritone voice of the host Ravi Kishan, made things seem more dramatic?
Did the staged events (those which depicted the visitor's past life) seem too out of place, to be believed?
Whatever it might be, it is good enough, that such shows are not crowding the prime time slots any more.
