From everything I've seen, most (not all) past-life theories are fluffy at best, and downright sickly-sweet at worst (how many Cleopatras are there? Tongue).  Over time, my UPG has moved to be more accepting of the idea of reincarnation, and I tend to be of the opinion that, if there really ARE past lives, there must be some way to pull from their experience besides the collective unconscious that would, by necessity, have accumulated.

So my question: has anyone at TC encountered what you feel is a reliable (read: not influenced by our own wishes and desires) method for past-life regression?  I'm really interested in finding ways to explore this, as long as I can find ways that don't leave me feeling like I just swam through a fluffy cloud of cotton candy.

ever tried working with the Phoenix deck? I've been using it for about 15 years. there are 28 cards with pics relating to 28 different cultures and time periods. sometimes someone will want to know about their past lives and if i don't see clearly a life for them, I will have them look at the pics and find the 7 they like the best- then I'll tell them about that time period and what they might have been in that lifetime. It will give a good general idea of who they were if not a specific name.they are still  in publication and I highly reccomend them. check where you buy tarot cards and they can order them if they don't have them at the store you frequent.

Interesting.  My wife and I are just entering in to tarot divination with a set that was given to her by a friend, so we don't really have a set place we buy tarot from Smiley.  I will start keeping an eye out for this deck, though.  Thanks for the input.
