This story is one of incredible spiritual healing.

To begin with, I’ll give you a little background. But I want you to hear most of it from the perspective of my client.

When I spoke to Sarah sometime around five years ago, she told me about her 15-year old son, James, who was born with severe mental and physical issues.

I told Sarah about a past life she and her son had together. They were both young men, childhood friends, who joined the British Army to fight in the trenches of World War 1. Before setting off, they made a pact. They knew they’d probably die, but promised to always look out for one another.

One night during the Battle of Verdun, the soul that is now Sarah was shot in the abdomen in no-man’s land, the area between the British and German trenches. The soul who is now her son James carried his friend to safety, but was also shot in the abdomen, and died soon after.

The first thing Sarah said after I told her about this past life was, “I knew he’d saved my life!”

But I was more interested in the physical resonances I expected to show up in this life. I said, “Does James have unexplained abdominal pains?”

“James suffers excruciating pain in his stomach,” she said. “He’s often asked me, ‘Why is there a hole in my stomach!’”

A few days ago, I worked with Sarah again. Afterwards, I received the following letter from her detailing her story, and the profound spiritual healing that has since taken place.

It turns out that “unexplained abdominal pains” doesn’t even begin to express the suffering James has endured over the years. Here is Sarah’s story:

I would describe James as a pretty happy baby/child, but several times a week, for as long as I can remember, he would have these episodes of screaming and crying while hitting or pulling at his stomach.  

I guess his stomach issues started at birth since he was colicky for about the first three months. But even after that subsided he would still get “fussy” periodically.

When he was a baby, his doctor switched formulas several times, prescribed drops to give him for gas, etc., but nothing seemed to make much of a difference for too long.

James was always a medically “fragile” child, hospitalized frequently with high fevers and seizures, and was diagnosed with epilepsy at two-years old and autism at three.  

He also has severe physical and cognitive delays and was non-verbal until age four, so he couldn’t articulate to me what was hurting him back then. As he got older he would take my hand and rub his stomach and say “belly” when I would ask him why he was crying or what hurt him.

With all of James’s medical issues, we saw numerous doctors, neurologists, psychologists, orthopedists and a pediatric neuropsychologist who thought James’s crying episodes was a behavioral issue to get attention.  

So we began behavioral therapy (ABA) with him at three-years old. But still, one minute James would be sitting and playing happily, and the next minute he would start screaming and crying, and hitting his stomach, becoming more and more upset until he was hysterical and impossible to hold or calm down.

I would give him Mylanta or Tums or some other over the counter medication for an upset stomach, and within 10 minutes or so he would calm down, stop crying, and go back to being his happy self. And yet, as far as the doctors were concerned, nothing was “physically” wrong.

As a toddler we tried eliminating foods from his diet, took him for allergy testing, X-rays, and through the years, a GI doctor, a chiropractor for adjustments, a homeopathic practitioner, a doctor who practiced alternative medicine, and even an energy healer.  

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would have to say James’s pain was a 9 to a 10.  

We kept a food diary for him to try and figure out what foods triggered this, or why it was happening. James did, and still does, take a lot of seizure meds daily. The neurologist thought maybe his seizure meds were upsetting his stomach. She prescribed antacid meds. But this wasn’t just a tummy ache, these were full blown crying / kicking / screaming hysterics.

The neurologist then suggested a psychiatrist, who said James was having anxiety attacks, and prescribed Prozac. He was only about 7 or 8 years old! We tried that for a few weeks and it made no difference.  

It makes me almost cry thinking about it, but I guess most parents can understand that feeling of helplessness when your child is in pain.  

And then another doctor suggested Ritalin, but I wouldn’t do it. I just had had enough by then. I guess that had to be the worst moment for me–all these doctors, therapist, and none of them can help you.  

So we just lived with these episodes, watching what he ate, keeping his clothing loose fitting around his waist. We bought a lot of Mylanta, Tums, Pepcid and Zantac, and did our best to calm him when these attacks happened.

Then…I spoke with you.

I took your advice and told James “a story” about two best friends who did everything together, went to war together, etc. I told James this story almost every night at bedtime for a few weeks.

He would just listen to me, had no reaction to it or anything. But I guess it was within two weeks that I started noticing fewer crying episodes. After a month, they were gone completely! It didn’t take long at all.

This whole thing is still unbelievable to me, and I am forever grateful!!!

It’s literally been years, Ainslie, since James has had an episode.  

Which is odd in a way, since he does suffer with constipation, yet he never cries or complains about his belly hurting from that.

But here’s an interesting side note regarding James’s constipation.

During our last session, your guides described a past life in which James was a farmer who was forced to go to war.  

While fighting he was clubbed in the head, fell down, and was unable to move, or get out of the way of horses who were rearing up all around, and trampling him. (You said this was a loss of control issue, and is connected to constipation in this life.) So, that night, at bedtime, I started telling James a “story” of a very happy farmer who lived in Belgium a long, long time ago.

Ainslie, I could only get as far as the farmer being forced to fight in a war before James became very upset. He started physically shaking, got up and tried to leave the room, and started babbling louder and louder to drown me out. It took quite a while to calm him down and get him back to bed. The next morning at breakfast, he looked at me and said “horses” several times (which was weird since I didn’t even get to that part of the story). Anyway, I was afraid to bring it up again, but did (very slowly) two nights later.

This time, James was calm, and as I was telling him the story, he just closed his eyes and fell asleep. I’ll keep at it. I never expected that kind of reaction, but it seemed to really hit a nerve with him.

The key to the spiritual healing of unexplained physical resonances from past lives is all about reminding the soul that “that was then, and this is now.”

Whether you do this in a session with me, where I simply tell you what happened, or through past-life regression, where you do the exploration yourself, the principle is the same.

And when it comes to spiritual healing in a child, you can tell them a bedtime story, or as a number of my clients have done, tell them what actually happened, and preface it with, “This may sound weird, but a psychic friend of mine told me…”

The important thing is to get through to the soul. Spiritual healing often begins immediately, or as soon as the soul recognizes that whatever it’s holding onto – whether it’s a fear, phobia, limiting belief, or a physical ailment – is not from this life, and can no longer affect it.

I want to thank Sarah for sharing her incredible story, and wish her all the best with James in the future. May the spiritual healing he’s experienced continue as he overcomes the effects of this more recently unearthed traumatic death on a Belgian field of battle.
