Real Stories of the Past, Present and Future

[PureInsight.org] One day, Lisa
brought her boyfriend to see me. She wanted to understand the karmic
relationship between them as their relationship had had lots of ups and
downs. Out of curiosity, her boyfriend was willing to try out the

To our surprise, Lisa's boyfriend started to snore in the hypnotic
state. It might have been because he was too tired from work, so I
thought he'd better have a rest first before we started again. However,
he wasn't really asleep. When I spoke to him, he said he was in Japan,
and he was a Seii Taishogun (or Shogun, meaning "The Great General")
during the Bakufu period in ancient Japan. He was on a warship looking
at the ocean. There were many people loading things onto the warship.
The Shogun said that enemies from some rebellious Japanese islands had
killed his wife with an arrow, so the reasons of the battle were:
firstly, to avenge his wife and secondly, to take back those islands
for the Mikado (the Japanese Emperor). This would also expand Japanese
territory, with the view of unifying the whole country. The Shogun took
with him 79 warships of various sizes and the ship he was on was the
biggest with three levels of decks.

The Shogun had a military advisor with him, whose job was to accompany
the Shogun in battles and provide strategic advice, as well as oversee
the Shogun's private life. As the warships were leaving the harbor, the
Shogun suddenly spotted a young solider who looked very familiar. When
he wanted to take a closer look, however, the young solider had turned
his face bashfully aside and disappeared into the crowd. The Shogun
thought he had seen his younger female cousin but later decided that it
was impossible for her to have come out to sea and take part in the

The wind was quite strong. The enemies on the islands shot at the
warships with flaming arrows. The turbulent water had become a sea of
fire and the islands also burned brightly everywhere. Some smaller
islands were conquered by the Shogun but some smaller warships from the
Shogun's fleet had also been lost. The Shogun himself was severely
injured; his left calf had been shot with an arrow. The Shogun
retreated from one of the islands back to the warship. The arrow had
hit the bone and the leg was very painful. The whole calf was swollen
and reddish purple. The Shogun asked his military advisor to cut open
the calf muscle and took out the arrowhead. The military advisor also
put some herbal medicinal oil on the wound to prevent inflammation and
brewed some medicinal herbal drinks for the Shogun to drink.

The Shogun could not sleep that night. The young soldier he saw earlier
on came to him and nursed him carefully for the whole night. He wiped
the Shogun's boiling face with a cold towel and gave him water and
medicine. The Shogun called out the name of his younger female cousin
repeatedly in a drowsy state through the whole night.

After sailing for several days, the weary Shogun returned home to
Japan. The young solider changed clothes and put on a kimono. She once
again was the much loved, lively, younger female cousin of the Shogun.
She stayed with the Shogun, singing and dancing for him. The Shogun was
very happy and he recovered very quickly. They also fell deeply in love
with each other.

Nevertheless, gossip does travel far. The news of the Shogun falling in
love with his cousin was known by the Emperor and, because the Emperor
was concerned about the increasing political power of the Shogun, he
sent out a few court ladies to serve the Shogun. In fact, those ladies
were sent to monitor the Shogun. At the same time, the military advisor
also began to meddle in the Shogun's private life. Under the pretext of
concern for the Shogun's welfare, the military advisor interfered with
the relationship between the Shogun and his female cousin and tried to
drive her away from the Shogun. Under the pressure, the Shogun had no
choice but to suspend his relationship with his female cousin

But both parties had already fallen deeply in love with each other.
After the separation, the Shogun was unable to concentrate on managing
the national affairs and he wasn't at all interested in the court
ladies sent by the Emperor. (Translator's note: In Japanese history, a
Shogun was the practical ruler of Japan for most of the time from 1192
to 1868. A Shougun's administration is a shogunate, or bakufu in
) Eventually, the Shogun overcame all opposition and married
his female cousin. After the marriage, he became even braver and more
ambitious and consequently conquered many islands and expanded the then
territory of Japan. During hypnosis, he shouted several times
excitedly: "Even my military advisor has become a ruler of thousands of
families and has a lot of power!"

The Shogun and his female cousin had a happy marriage and they had a
son. She was in charge of around a hundred people working in the
Shogun's palace and she reconstructed the palace which later had a
beautiful garden with pavilions, streams and bridges. The Shogun's
palace was a magnificent sight to look at.

In the end, he said in a hypnotic state: "I am now old. My female
cousin is now taking care of the national affairs." As the Shogun
became old, his female cousin took over the rule of the country and she
enjoyed much wealth and good fortune for the rest of her life.

The Shogun's female cousin is his now girlfriend Lisa; the military
advisor is me (the author). How wondrous are the predestined
relationships! In this life time, we have become good friends and often
meet up with each other.

Through hypnosis, we discover parts of human history that have been
buried deep down in our memories, which can not be recollected through
the means of modern science. It's also not possible to know whether a
particular hypnotic session will be successful nor not, and which piece
of history will be revealed. Nonetheless, the phenomena demonstrated by
hypnosis tells us that the study and research on history should not be
confined to using scientific means alone, but can also be carried
forward with other, alternative, methods, such as meditation, hypnosis,
cultivation practice, and the like.   

In addition, the phenomenon of hypnosis tells us that human beings must
do good, accumulate virtue, and avoid doing evil, because everything
has been recorded in detail deep down in our memories and stored in
another time-space dimension which is barely known to humans.

The founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi, wrote: "If human beings are
able to take a fresh look at themselves as well as the universe and
change their rigid mentalities, humankind will make a leap forward.
'The Buddha Fa' enables humankind to understand the immeasurable and
boundless world. Throughout the ages, only 'the Buddha Fa' has been
able to perfectly provide a clear exposition of humanity, every
dimension of material existence, life, and the entire universe."

I suggest you have a look at Mr. Li's book Zhuan Falun, and you will benefit tremendously from the reading.
