Past life regression puts forward (an idea or theory) for consideration of a previous lifetime. The phenomenon tends to take a deep dive into the hidden reserves of your consciousness to discover and determine the strength and character of the relationship between past lifetime and this lifetime, to pursue a middle way in order to reinforce intention, accomplishments and strength.
Human-beings have made a deliberate attempt to extract some answers to their doubts behind creation and existence. Diverging communities belonging to various religious denominations have endeavoured their own truth, getting influenced by their “spatio-temporal” and “cultural perspectives”.

But there is a clear divide between the Orient and the West when it comes to the matters of birth and death of a ‘soul’. For instance in Abrahamic religions human life is a one-off affair where the soul goes to a specific plane of existence; but it as per the eastern religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism, there is a belief of rebirth and reincarnation. However, both binaries incline towards the “reincarnation” of the soul or an after life. The consensus seems to be consolidated by given evidence originating from empirical research, including the findings of past life regression therapy.
Most of these narratives of rebirth reinforce the conventional perception of the “soul” as it exists within a physical host on a physical plane. An individual soul is said to contain self-will in every birth. Thus, whatever the soul invents or fabricates in it’s previous life, it carries it as a lesson within it. The sufferings and depressions that the soul brings to the new incarnated life can at times be devastating; hence to diminish the potential of such conditions which can be destructive at times, the therapy “past life regression”, is used.
It is an ancient science and therapeutic healing technique which has evolved, wherein one travels to the past chronologically with the support of hypnotherapy or hypnosis, to access memories and experiences of past lives or incarnations that are normally hidden in the subconscious mind.
One can find answers and closures for unexplained physical, mental and emotional issues. For a common man, the goal of this therapy is not about enhancing the psychic recall of past lives. For that matter, for someone who is into spiritual practices and meditation, past life recalls are very spontaneous. But for someone who is not initiated into any such spiritual practice, doing a past life recall without an expert and without any specific cause can be a daunting task. It can create confusion in present life issues.
9 benefits of past life regression therapy:
It can help handle unexplained fears and phobias
It can help in letting go of unexplained anxiety and panic attacks
It can also help in releasing physical body toxins
It can help uncover talents and abilities from the past
It can help in bettering the relationships around you
It can help in finding roots of and hence heal many other unexplained physical ailments
It can help in relieving current life’s mental and emotional issues
It can help in gaining a deeper understanding of your current life and purpose.
It can help in releasing limiting thoughts and belief systems
It can help in removing the fear of death
It can help in evolving spiritually and learn life lessons.
Opening a karmic repository can change your destiny. According to the Yogic concept of diseases, Vyadhis (diseases) are of 2 types– Adhija Vyadhi and Anadhija Vyadhi. Adhija Vyadhi are stress born diseases that start in the mind and gradually enter the pranic body, and then enter the physical body manifesting as a physical disease. Anadhija Vyadhi are non-stress related diseases, they include accidents, infectious and contagious diseases. Calamities like earthquakes, floods, accidents, wars, pandemics etc come in this category. They come for a higher purpose, related to the evolution of human beings. They help us understand the philosophy of life and take us a step forward in the evolution process. They test our learning and achievement levels in the process of evolution. It is not important whether we live or die in these calamities. If our mind remains stable and our behaviour is ethical and full of higher energies like compassion and gratitude, we are promoted to the next level of learning in the evolution cycle. If we stay alive, we are promoted in this very life. If we die, then the next life will be of the next level of learning. If we fail in these times, we will keep on repeating the same problems in this and next lives.
So it is very important to balance our actions and emotions in such testing times. We should spend more time on the evolution of our soul in testing times. And that can be done via various methods like energy healing, meditation, affirmations and past life regression. (IANS)
There's no denying that the high levels of tension and worry accompany examinations. This tension, along with the stress and ongoings of daily life, may be quite exhausting for students. When we have a lot to learn but just a limited amount of time, studying for an exam can be difficult. While some people study faster and more effectively if they have a suitable study plan, many others end up studying less and worrying more about the outcome of the exam.
Luckily, there are tried-and-true methods for improving your memory and reducing tension before an exam. These strategies are especially useful for people who believe their natural memory isn't strong enough.
The following are five study hacks that will assist anyone in preparation for an examination.
#1 Make A Study Plan: Make a study plan before you sit down to take up a book and begin studying. It will provide a better picture of what has to be done and when. List the names of the subjects and topics, prioritise the importance of studying each subject, calculate the number of days until the exam, and strategically assign a topic to each subject. Plan out group study time and breaks, set aside study hours every day.

#2 Organize The Study Area: When we are in a pleasant and comfortable setting, we are able to focus and learn at our best. Find the ideal place in the home, hostel, or room that has good lighting, fresh air, and is quiet. The best places to study are those with the least amount of distraction. To eliminate distractions, keep the environment as clear of unnecessary stuff as possible. While studying, turn off your phone or keep it on flight mode.

#3 Speak Aloud While You Study: This is a typical tactic employed by people. The term used by psychologists to describe this concept is "production effect." This effect claims that if a person says something out loud, they are far more likely to remember it. So, if you're having trouble remembering a topic, repeat the crux of it aloud. You'll be amazed at how much better you'll recall this topic when it exam time.

#4 Remember To Take Regular Breaks: When the human brain is given breaks on a regular basis, it performs optimally. Studies have proved that studying in small intervals with frequent pauses is more efficient than studying for extended periods without breaks. Forcing ourselves to study while our minds are drowsy or inactive will simply exhaust it further. So, take regular pauses, go for a short walk, close your eyes or gaze out at a distance to relax your eyes and mind.

#5 Check Previous Year Questions: After you have finished studying read over previous year's question papers. It will not only make us aware of how well prepared we are for the examination, but it will also provide us with a way to learn about the nature and format of exam question papers.
We're confident you'll pass with flying colours if you employ these helpful tricks. You've got it! Best wishes!

Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi has maintained No 1 position in smartphone shipments in India for 16 consecutive quarters, the company has announced. Xiaomi maintained its lead in the third quarter (Q3) in India this year, shipping 11.2 million units for a 24 per cent share. According to the company, its revenue from overseas markets reached 40.9 billion Yuan during the third quarter of 2021, accounting for 52.4 per cent of total revenue.
"Despite the global shortage of key components, Xiaomi solidified its market position by optimising global market resource allocation and reinforcing its channels in accordance with local market conditions," the company said while announcing its Q3 results late on Tuesday. According to Canalys, Xiaomi's market share of smartphone shipments in the third quarter ranked No 1 in 11 countries and regions and among the top five in 59 countries and regions globally.
In the third quarter of 2021, despite the global shortage of key components, the Group's global smartphone shipments still reached 43.9 million. "For many of its new smartphones launched this year, over half of the users are new Xiaomi users. Xiaomi introduced the brand-new Xiaomi Civi Series in September 2021 and was well received by users," it informed. Overall, in the third quarter of 2021, Xiaomi's total revenue amounted to 78.1 billion Yuan, representing an increase of 8.2 per cent year-over-year.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi's global MIUI 30-day active user base has exceeded 500 million as of November 22. "During the third quarter of 2021, we continue to strengthen our core 'Smartphone × AIoT' strategy and advance in the premium smartphone market. We ranked 1st in terms of smartphone shipments in 11 countries and regions," said Xiaomi Corporation. (IANS/ MBI)

Electronic waste generated in the Commonwealth of Independent States and Georgia rose by 50 per cent between 2010 and 2019, roughly the world average, but overall just 3.2 per cent was collected and safely managed, well below the 17.4 per cent average worldwide, according to the UN's first report on Wednesday dedicated to the e-waste issue in the 12 former Soviet Union countries. The regional e-waste total jumped from 1.7 Mt to 2.5 Mt (an average 8.7 kg per citizen), with Russia generating the most e-waste in both absolute and per inhabitant terms.
The findings are published in the first-ever "Regional E-waste Monitor, CIS + Georgia," produced by the Sustainable Cycles (SCYCLE) Programme, co-hosted by the UN University (UNU) and the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), in partnership with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). According to the study, the region's e-waste spans a variety of products but three categories dominate: temperature exchange equipment (e.g. heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration units), and large equipment (e.g. washing machines or ovens) and small equipment (e.g. kitchen equipment or vacuum cleaners) account for 77 per cent.

The annual growth rate in the region has slowed in nearly all categories but remains positive. Only screens and monitors, and small IT equipment, show negative growth rates. The Commonwealth of Independent States plus region has 289.2 million inhabitants (2019). The most populous countries are Russia, (143.9 million inhabitants in 2019), Ukraine (41.8 million), and Uzbekistan (33.2 million). Product purchasing power parity (PPP) varies greatly, from $3,000 a year in Tajikistan to $26,000 per year in Russia. The amount of e-waste generated per inhabitant was highest in Russia (11.3 kg/inh) and lowest in Tajikistan (1.4kg/inh), strongly correlated with PPP. "E-waste constitutes one of the fastest growing waste streams in today's global environment and poses a significant threat to both health and sustainable development," said Ruediger Kuehr, Director of the Sustainable Cycles Programme (SCYCLE).
"However, few countries collect internationally comparable e-waste statistics, and many countries lack the capacity to collect e-waste data at both the regional and national level. We need this data to track changes over time, establish national and international policies, limit e-waste generation, prevent illegal dumping, and promote recycling. This Regional E-waste Monitor for the CIS + Georgia is the first of its kind, reviewing e-waste statistics, legislation, and management, created with the aim of enhancing understanding and interpretation of the problem and facilitating the environmentally sound management of e-waste.
Hazardous substances in the region's 2019 e-waste included at least 2.4 tonnes of mercury, 1.1 tonnes of cadmium, 8,100 tonnes of lead, and 4,000 tonnes of brominated flame retardant| Flickr
"Such a summary allows for international comparisons and contributes to the development of more effective regional e-waste management systems," he added. Co-author Kees Balde of the United Nations University underlined that managing e-waste could be an economic opportunity in the region by creating enterprises and thus jobs in the recycling sector. E-waste generated in the CIS + Georgia in 2019 alone contained 10 tonnes of gold, half a tonne of rare earth metals, 1 million tonnes of iron, 85,000 tonnes of copper, 136,000 tonnes of aluminum, and 700 tonnes of cobalt -- representing a total value of $2.6 billion in secondary raw materials. Meanwhile, hazardous substances in the region's 2019 e-waste included at least 2.4 tonnes of mercury, 1.1 tonnes of cadmium, 8,100 tonnes of lead, and 4,000 tonnes of brominated flame retardants -- threats to human and environmental health.
