PLR Like a Movie

Jumpstarting Imagination: Is PLR like Watching a Movie?

Common Questions and Concerns ,Past Life Regression

It is a common belief that having a “successful” Past Life Regression means that you watch a movie of that past life behind your closed eyelids. Is that REALLY how it works? And how is it that blind people can have past life regressions? Candace addresses this common belief and whether or not it is true, false, or partially true. This great question comes from a YouTube viewer. Send me your own question!


Hi, everyone, it’s Candace Craw-Goldman from Back again with another great question from one of our YouTube viewers. So this YouTube viewer was watching one of the Get Ready video collection that’s on our channel. And what that is, is just like what it says it’s how to get ready for a quantum healing session, quantum healing session, really of any kind, not just be BQH not just QHHT®, anything at all like that, that has you entering into your own consciousness to explore. And there’s a lot of different ways we can do that. These days, these ‘Get Ready’ videos will help you do just any of those things, and even help you with things like dream recording, meditation, all that kind of stuff, sort of get ready for your session or get ready to begin to explore your own consciousness. There are 10 very brief videos there. Okay, so one of the videos is called jumpstart your imagination. Now, if you have been watching any of my videos for the last, well, many years, it’s been more than 15 now. You will have heard me say that I believe that imagination is the language of the higher self. And I really do believe that that’s true, you have to be able to access your imagination to translate. Oftentimes, the information downloads that you get from your higher self. So here’s the question and I want to read it to you directly. Now this person I don’t think was English speaking, primarily. And so I rewarded and sort of switched around and clarified the question. It’s not exactly how it was written. But I believe I got it completely correct the intention of the question.

There’s a couple of questions in here, actually. So this person is talking about how it is for somebody who is doing a quantum healing session. And again, commented on the ‘Jumpstart Your Imagination’ portion of the ‘Get Ready’ videos. And this person writes, “Hi, I thought that seeing a past life was like watching a movie where we don’t control any image because the movie has already been recorded.” It’s a really interesting way that they phrased it here. “You suggested to use your imagination during a session, which by the way, I can do any time. So can you watch the movie without your imagination? Or do you have to use your imagination to watch a pre-recorded movie?” And then in parentheses, they wrote, which I think would make no sense. And you know what, it’s a really great way of phrasing this question. It’s not a new question. The question’s been asked for 15 or more years, in my experience, and we’ve answered it in a lot of different ways. And we’re going to do it again this way, today. So, I thought it was a great way to answer that question. It also ties into one of the questions that came into our support forum recently, about should you have a client, this was a brand new practitioner, should you even take a client who says they can’t visualize, and there are a lot of different things about what that word means and preconceptions and all of that. So, let’s get to it!

When people talk about needing to be able to visualize and not being able to do a quantum healing session if you can’t visualize, if you’re one of the people that can’t do that, or you say you don’t understand how it works, I always say this. I know of blind people. I’ve had them as clients, and they’ve had perfectly fine, successful, and amazing quantum healing sessions. I’m talking about people who’ve been blind since birth. So, people who cannot visualize, who can only be told what visualization actually is because they can’t do it. Blind people ostensibly don’t even know what that is. So, how do they have a successful past life regression of any kind or quantum healing session? Well, it’s because there’s not only one way to receive information, and we’ve gone over this before, but I’ll read it to you. I’ll put the list on the screen right now, and we can look at this list together. These are the Clair’s, ready? Okay!

There are different ways of getting information, right? We’ve talked about this in the BQH class, but here are six ways you can get information. The number one way that people think about getting information is clairvoyance, which is having clear seeing and someone that sees through their third eye between his or her two eyes. One sees flashes or images or something like a movie film of what is happening in the past, present, or future. That’s kind of why we talk about being able to visualize. We use this phrasing, “Do you see what I mean?” You know, understanding things visually. But we don’t always mean that’s the only way you can get information. In our language system, we tend to look at it that way. But clairvoyance really is seeing clearly. People who are clairvoyant sometimes can see apparitions, or they actually see things beyond the veil. That’s how they get their information.

All right. Number two is clairaudience, having clear hearing, right, someone who hears information with the mind and not the ears. Basically, it’s telepathic information coming into one’s mind through their auditory channels, right. Sometimes people will hear this in a regular voice, or even sometimes their own voice.

Number three, claircognizance, which is having clear knowing. Someone has information or knowledge of something that he or she does not actually know or is not, apparently supposed to know, right? Thoughts come out of nowhere, apparently popping into one’s mind and giving information about something that’s either happened in the past or the future that they couldn’t know about. That’s clairognizance.

Clairsentience, is having clear feeling, someone who can feel the information within himself or herself. An example of this would be someone having an anxiety attack. The clairsentience person feels this in his or her own chest. A lot of practitioners have a great deal of clairsentience with their clients. Another word that is used often is empathic, right? You can feel a lot of what’s going on with your client or with the person in front of you. Number five, and number six, are the least spoken about, but it really is still information that comes to you, right?

Clairgustance and that’s having clear tasting. Someone who can actually taste something that isn’t really there. Right, for example, someone tastes chocolate, but he or she is not actually eating any chocolate. Some people are so good at this, that, especially with the idea of the body and the mind connection, if you think about biting into a lemon – me just getting ready to say that, I have my salivary glands exploding right now. Because I knew I was gonna say that about the lemon. But seeing something too, across the room, and not being able to taste it, or seeing a visual image in a movie or something like that, and then being able to actually taste it, that’s how you know that you’ve got a little of that if, if you have that prompt, and you feel like you can taste it in your mouth.

And then number six, clairsmelling, is someone who can smell odors that are not present, an example of that would be smelling perfume or a cigar. But neither of those things is present at that moment. The person that wrote this, because, you know, perfume or cigars, because those two things are often spoken about when people are having visitations from somebody who’s crossed the veil. Now, it’s important to talk about the fact that you don’t just get information one way. Some people can get information, in two, three, four, or all of these ways. Really!

You can practice and they’re like little muscles, you know, you could figure out which one are you better at. Which one have you not had any contact with, you can get better just like working a muscle with any of these things. You may have been born with a particular predilection for one or the other, or a couple of them.

All right. So the whole idea of how a past life regression works is that you’re given the information in a way that we could call a download. Then your own personality, your makeup, the way your brain is wired, the way that you’ve used your mind since you were born, your soul contract, all of those things come into play, to translate the information from that download into something allowing you to express the experiences that you’re having. Okay, so does that make sense? So if a download comes to somebody in a session, and they say it was just like a movie, then that person is expressing this through their clairvoyant part of themselves. Their clairvoyant aspect of themselves, they’re seeing clearly and they’ve taken that information, and absolutely do see it like a movie.

Okay, but sometimes it’s not very clear, right? Some people like well, “It’s not very clear, I can kind of see a little bit of something.” I had a client even just this week who said, “Well, I know there are people around me, but I can’t really see them very clearly.” This person was having this experience clairvoyantly. But the images were murky, they weren’t very clear, and the details weren’t directly available to her. So the way that you use your imagination, then is to fill in the details. You know, using your imagination, you access a part of your intellect, your experience, and your communication skills to be able to go. I can imagine the people there were very dusty with dark brown skin and loincloths or whatever it was for me in my session that happened just a few days ago. That is how you’re accessing your imagination to help assist and bring forward the storyline or your experiences that are happening right at that time.

Okay, I think it’s important to consider this fact as well, and I’ll use my own experience to illustrate it. You might have had a past life regression or quantum healing session where you saw something like a movie. That’s what happened to me with Dolores Cannon, it seemed like a movie. It was a lot, I understood that I was downloading and sort of translating the movie, but it was very visual, it was still very visual. And I did see this, I saw the images here, but in a daydreamy kind of way. Not like a movie behind my eyelids. Even all those years back then, my first past life regression, well, maybe my second, but I digress. Anyway, over the years, my sessions have come in different ways. So I’ve had many opportunities to exchange sessions with other practitioners, and primarily, mine were clairvoyant sessions. I got my information visually, and auditorily, with some clairsentience and claircognizance, but very standard vision, hearing, and feeling and emotions and all of that. So basically, a little bit of all of those things. Something happened once, many years later, I probably had 15 or 20, maybe not 20, but in the teens, for sure, sessions, when all of a sudden I had a session where I saw absolutely nothing.

I was unable to use my clairvoyance to translate what was happening into being able to talk about what I saw. It was really interesting because I was actually being given, at the time, a QHHT session with somebody who was brand new to Dolores’ method and had never done a session before but was doing a session on me. I said, “Sure, I’d be happy to be your guinea pig.” I was in Arkansas at the time and this man did a session on me. When I came off the cloud, I was in a gray soup, with nothing coming forth visually, nothing at all. For one, it was really fascinating because I wasn’t used to that. I was used to the information coming visually, but because I’ve been doing this for so long because I’ve been supporting other practitioners for so long, I knew what to tell myself during that time. It was interesting because I was having the experience as the client, I was using this as a teaching moment for the practitioner who was doing a session on me, at the same time kind of having a running commentary. So, I was compartmentalized in two different ways. I was able to talk to my practitioner in that way. Even tell him, “You know, this is interesting, I’m really not seeing anything. I’m going to begin to access my other forms of translating what was happening to be able to describe what was happening because I couldn’t see anything.”

I will have to tell you too, that some of you have seen this before. And I’ll try to find the link for it and put it in this video. One of my most incredible healing powerful, amazing sessions, I ever had in my life was a tandem session with Pamela Erland where I saw absolutely nothing. Absolutely nothing at all. And that session was witnessed by at least a half dozen people I believe. It was fascinating and I had practically levitated, my bones were bending in my body and it was one of the most powerful sessions I ever had, to this day. It has to be at the top of one of the most powerful sessions I have ever had and there were absolutely no visuals whatsoever. It was all completely somatic. It was all experiential. And it’s interesting how that works. So Pamela and I were both lying down and having a session at the same time. There were a couple of times when Pamela had to get up and visit the restroom during this session. When she was gone, I could speak. I could speak. Dolores Cannon of course was part of all this because we both loved Dolores so much. I could speak for Dolores while Pamela was gone. When Pamela came back, the voice of Dolores only came through Pamela.

Now, there are a lot of different ways of looking at that, and Pamela’s brainwaves were actually being recorded at the time. She has some of the most coherent brainwaves of any human that there is. Certainly nothing like my brainwaves. My brainwaves are very actually, in their own way, very unique and very, very odd. A couple of them are flipped, but that’s a whole other story. We won’t get into that right now. Suffice it to say, this is why you use your imagination, is to help you download the information, right? So yes, it’s a past life, ‘has it already been recorded?’ Well, yes, if you are visiting an authentic past life, then yes, it is recorded, and you simply are observing and translating what’s been given to you in your download in the best way that you can. To do that, you use your imagination, okay? Because that’s the best word we have, right? To access all of these different ways of having the information come through you, including to brighten up and spiffy up your clairvoyance if there are images there, but they’re not very clear. You use your imagination to fill in the details. Doing so with an open heart, with real trust in your higher self and your guidance, and really jumping in with both feet, it’ll happen for you, it really will. It’s the hesitation. That sometimes makes it hard. And it’s the performance anxiety. the idea that you have to do it perfectly, that it’s not happening correctly, and that it happens to other people, but not you. It’s all of those things and all of those judgments that get in the way of you having a fantastic regression experience or quantum healing experience. 

Okay, well, I hope that answers the question. Keep the questions coming in. I love to see them. You can send them via email to You can comment on a video. Sometimes I miss some of those comments, but emails are the best, you can ask on the forum if you’re a practitioner. Try to catch me on Facebook if I’m there, those kinds of places. I’m happy to take questions wherever you could send them. You can text me, I’m not gonna say my phone number, but you can find it pretty pretty easily in the directory.
