We all have our own destiny. Our destiny is laid into our cradle so to speak as our path in life is roughly predestined upon birth.  Being born in a country ruled by peace, wealth, law and order is different in respect to living conditions to being born where war, tumult and famine govern a country. The circumstances into which we are born especially our family situation and mentality influence our path at least for the first few decades of our life here on earth.

The older we become in our present life the stronger our own individual characteristics surface. Obviously our surroundings only condition us in the beginning and that only to a certain extent. 

Crucial to our development is our innate nature which increasingly shines through as time goes on.  We are born with our innate nature meaning we bring it along when entering this life on earth.

Where from?  If we are familiar with the fact that each and every one of us reincarnates more than once and has a long past history of lives then we will also be aware of entering into this life with a soul and spirit which have been preconditioned by our past. Our character is more or less a given as is our destiny, for some substantially a given for others there will be sufficient room left for personal decisions.

How much freedom a person has depends upon the level of personal development. The further we have come in our own personal development the more inner freedom we have and thus the capability to make decisions and choose possibilities in which we can influence the path we take in life. If we are at the beginning of our internal development then our path in life will be completely or largely predestined. This stage is comparable to a baby’s or child’s at which it is not yet capable of making its own decisions. Development given we can start taking on more responsibility in shaping our destiny.

Our destiny is in accordance with our life plan which is based upon the development called for and which in turn defines the skills we must develop as well as the experiences and challenges we are to encounter in this lifetime. Thus it is up to us to co-create our destiny according to our inner maturity:  It depends on us whether and to what extent we enfold our potential and whether we are conscious of and how we resolve our responsibilities (duties, tasks?).

It is not as if we are simply confronted with our destiny. When we have matured to a certain extent then the point in time arrives in which we begin to think about our lives. At that point we seek the purpose of our lives and why what we have experienced in our lives so far happened to us. Should we be confronted with problems and illnesses then we will want to know why these things happened to us and what we can do to avoid them in future.

The following piece of work will try to answer these questions and show the preconditions of human destiny individually. We bring into this life a large portion from earlier incarnations. Only a small part is dependent upon our behavior in this lifetime. For this reason it is only possible to understand our destiny if we take into consideration our present internal situation and that of previous past lives.

Insight into past lives is possible through reincarnation sessions. The acquired insight helps us to recognize unconscious occurrences in our present life. The reincarnation sessions not only detect fateful destiny in our lives but also permit insight into its internal nature. Based upon this experience, this piece of work also tries to answer the following questions:  Who are we? What is the meaning or purpose of our destiny? And what do we require in order to be able to manage our destiny?


The following information is based upon experience with reincarnation sessions and therapeutic work during the time span of 50 years. Literature was not used except for when accounting for recited phrases.

In such an extensive piece of work repetition is unavoidable. Wherever repetition occurs and was necessary it is shown from a different perspective.

The following people helped the author with advice and editing:  Alfred and Gabriella Borter, Elisabeth Heimlicher and Emmy Mueller. The author deeply appreciates and herewith thanks them kindly for their valuable help and constructive criticism. He also wants to thank all his clients who have helped him develop and extend his knowledge through the therapeutic work. Special appreciation goes to his wife. Without her never-failing and active assistance the book would never have come about.

The author would also like to thank the publisher Monika Juenemann for her great patience, encouragement and willingness to publish the book in spite of its volume. And thanks to Silvia Luethjohann für the careful editing, whereby she contributed greatly to the stylistic lay-out of the text.

Appreciation also goes to the reader willing to go through with the endeavor of dealing with the contents of this book.


Sigmund Freud and the Past

When “The Interpretation of Dreams” by Sigmund Freud was published in the year 1900 a new epoch not only in the development of psychology but also in the increasing self-conception of the human being was introduced. Freud recognized that the cause of many symptoms and problems of physical and psychological nature were not only to be sought in the present situation but also in former periods in an individual’s life. He traced the life path of his patients as far back in time as possible and tried to find events that had made a great impression on them or had caused shock. As he was convinced that life started with birth he sought for events in childhood and even in babyhood;  in case of these events dwelling in the unconscious he tried to get access to them through interpreting dreams or hypnosis.

Freud’s work achieved recognition. More and more psychologists and psychiatrists began to search for the cause of their patients’ problems in the first 10 to 15 years of their lives believing that was where it was to be found. Based upon this belief, a psychological method came into being through experience seemingly fully justified and resulting in masses of parents being accused of causing their now adult children’s problems.

In the mean time some of Freud’s students had the idea that birth might be the cause of shock-like experiences that influenced an individual’s life. When it became obvious how high a sensitivity a human develops in the womb there was no doubt left that the first nine months of physical life were to be added to the psychological life of a human. (OR: influenced the psyche of a human?) A new psychology was born, the psychology of the embryo. The borderline to a person’s past, the moment when the psyche awakens was now the time of conception.

It is and remains Freud’s achievement, in spite of all the hostilities against him at the time, that mankind has come to acknowledge this basic insight, namely, that past experiences may emerge a lot later meaning that the cause of a lot of human problems lie-  amongst other times - in a much earlier stage of life. Knowing this makes a difference to those who recognize that life begins not with birth and not with conception but much earlier.

Nothing changes this principle:  the cause of the momentary situation of an individual is to be sought in the past. Solely the definition of the past is different:  What is considered to be the past extends further back and encompasses a substantially larger time span.

The New Definition of the Past

The altered and extended idea of an individual’s past is the prerequisite for working with reincarnation therapy. Only when we realize considering all consequences that the present life is only a tiny piece of one long inconceivable life do we understand the likes of a human being and our position within the universe in respect to reality. Understanding this and knowing about the true meaning and position of human beings is the prerequisite for an effective therapy.

The therapist, who wants to get to the bottom of a person’s problems seeking help and whose objective it is to solve the problems, must have the complete overview and conception of these causal relations. The therapist must know that a human being is no tabula rasa:  not a clean slate when born on earth namely being incarnated (derived from the Latin word Caro meaning meat; incarnation meaning to become flesh and blood; the entering of the soul into a crude body. We bring into this new life certain characteristics and abilities, and our character has more or less already been shaped. By and large we bring our destiny into this life whether it takes an advantageous or less beneficial course, whether we have a healthy constitution or tendency to illnesses as well as many individual characteristics of our present disposition, are all the after effects of our past. At the same time they lead to important experiences preparing us for life in the near or often even far future ahead.

The therapist must know that the disposition for all problems emerging in this lifetime either partially or completely have to do with earlier lives. Among other difficulties they might come from strained relationships either private, professional or of existential nature, illnesses, behavioral disorders, psychological or mental impairment. The reason, even for problems an adult apparently has due to childhood in the present life, come from – at least the core of the problem –previous incarnations. For this reason events must be sought in incarnations that are related to this life in order to understand why the problems in question have already emerged during childhood.

The therapist has to be knowledgeable about the structure of the past in general as well as the methods to be applied in order to find the reasons for the problems.

This method, which is not only the easiest and most direct but also actually the only fruit bringing one, is past life regression. 

Past-Life Regression and Reincarnation Therapy

Past-life regression enables the memories of events in earlier incarnations stored in the unconscious to surface into our consciousness.

These memories differ – at least partly – from readily available memories of this life including memories of childhood events.

The terms memory  for memory of this life and past memory  for memory of past incarnations will be used from now on in order to distinguish the difference between the two.

Regression therapy is directed towards successively discovering the reasons for problems in this life. The objective is not a person’s past – as is often wrongly claimed – but solely the present. Looking back into the past happens in past life regression only because events in the past either largely or even completely determine the destiny and respective situation of a person. The past is not past but lives in the present until it is completely resolved. We resolve the past that influences the present but only when we acknowledge it, let it sink in and work, and make the necessary changes in our attitude and ethos. 

Regression therapy enables us to understand, accept and clarify our situation in life. It gives us impulses so that we can change on the inside. It sets us free in two ways:  It frees us of burdens in our present life and sets us free for our future by removing inhibitions and hindrances that either make it difficult or impossible for us to enfold our potential and build up our future without restraints.

Naturally certain prerequisites must be fulfilled in order to implement regression therapy.

Regression therapy is based upon two essential prerequisites:  the knowledge of reincarnation and the knowledge of the inner development of a human being. It calls for the knowledge of source and nature of relationships between people and the exact knowledge of how karma works and the law of karma is.
