The op of the anxiety cycle confession might want to check out some Sylvia Brown's books, especially Past Lives, Future Healing. Yes, I know, she's a psychic and a lot of people think she is full of crap but her writings on past life regression are pretty interesting. For years I used to have a dream about being stabbed in the ribs and actually had terrible pain in my side. I even have a birthmark in the place where the pain would occur. Call me insane but that book really helped me.
