Past life expert and therapist Jenny Smedley resolves problems by delving into former lives with the help of her own past life spirit.
JENNY'S IN-DEPTH Regression NO CHANCE TO BLOSSOM Dear Jenny
I’m convinced that I had a past life in Japan – I’ve even written a screenplay in which a character has a past life in old Japan! I feel like I was female, and that cherry blossom had some significance. What can you tell me about it? Pippa, 47, Amesbury, Wiltshire
It is 1750. Your name is Aguri, which speaks volumes as it means ‘the child of those who have too many children.’ This is why your parents were completely thrilled to find you a husband - times are hard for those with many daughters. The problem is that your husband is not a kind man and you are scared of him. You are intelligent, although uneducated, and yearn to see more of your beautiful homeland, but you know that it’s unlikely your husband will ever let you.
Today, you are sitting in Asukayama Park under the cherry blossoms, while an artist paints you and your friends drinking saki. You smile, you enjoy the blossoms and the attention, but you’re also afraid. Your husband, Touma, believes strongly that Japanese husbands have total dominion over their wives, and you’re afraid that when he finds out that you have left the home without his permission and have been ‘wasting’ the day in this way, his retribution will be swift and cruel.
Stabbed to death
Touma has not spoken to you for three days. At 16 years old, you die by his hand, stabbed through the heart. Dying, your soul cries out for the life you didn’t live, and you vow to return to sit under the cherry blossoms.
