Depending upon your belief system, this exercise could be just a fanciful novelty or it could be a regressive look back into your previous lifetimes.
Seat yourself, naked or clothed, in front of a large mirror in a darkened room with a small flickering candle on each side of you.
Relax your body completely and breathe rhythmically and deeply into your abdomen.
Now begin looking at your image in the mirror.
Concentrate your attention intently upon your right eye without blinking and instruct yourself to progressively relax deeper and deeper (review "Exercise -- Relaxation For Improved Awareness").
Now ask yourself softly, "Who have I been?
" Keep breathing deeply and rhythmically while repeating the question over and over.
Soon you will 'see' changes take place in your face and body.
Different clothes, skin tone, hair length and even sex changes may become apparent.
As your images come and go, stop from time to time and hold onto an image.
Ask questions of it concerning your life and experiences, then move on to others.
To conclude the session, simply say to yourself that you will count from 1 to 10 and at the number 10, you will be fully in the present, feeling wonderfully refreshed and full of energy.
