FINAL NOTE: Today, April 20, I did receive word in the evening that Coletta Long has now completed her transition from earth. What a beautiful, triumphant lifetime of extraordinary service!
Rest in peace, Dear Teacher, but don’t rest too long. Both of us know, you’ll always be in some kind of body somewhere.
NOTE: Less than 24 hours after receiving a notification sent in error, I’ve learned from one of Coletta Long’s sons that she had a nasty fall and requires medical attention. That’s all.
Dr. Coletta Long is still very much alive. As her son Rocky emailed me, “Her mind stays sharp and her heart is as generous as ever.” He also told me, “Coletta is finishing her last days here on earth thinking of her friends,” and that’s how the mix-up occurred.
I’m so glad you’re thinking that way, Coletta. So many friends, and so many people you have helped — it is good to think about of us. Folks who have done far less have become world famous. You’re just getting the so-beautiful karma. 🙂 The following words apply while you’re still with us, except for the “was” part.
Dr. and Rev. Coletta Long was a clinical psychologist and Unity minister, but her claim to spiritual fame is that she developed a unique style of past-life regression.
What did she call it? Simply “past-life regression therapy.”
And what was her amazing contribution to this specialty within hypnotism?
Way ahead of her time, Dr. Long was energy sensitive (She had what I would call the beginnings of Stage Two Energetic Literacy.)
So she developed a way to facilitate past-life regression that would help clients to progress emotionally, spiritually; sometimes even resolving problems related to physical health.
Dr. Coletta Long developed her system around recognition of “Frozen Blocks of Stuck Energy.”
Coletta found effective techniques for using the power of the client’s subconscious mind to identify which incidents were most important for solving a client’s problem, then moving out that frozen block for keeps.
After I trained with Coletta, I wound up taking the basics she’d taught me and making so many changes that it became appropriate for me to name the system I use for past-life regression, and even trademark it as Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis® (SEAH). I’ve trained pracitioners, even apprenticed some.
Following in the footsteps of my great teacher, yes, I facilitate sessions to help clients and I also teach the skills — as I plan to do later this year, date not yet determined.
Of course, regular readers of this blog are familiar with the term originated by Rev. Coletta Long, “frozen blocks.” It is one of the 15 kinds of STUFF addressed in my field, Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). And I’ve developed some other skills for permanent removal of frozen blocks (such as blessings of light and bonus healing questions when cutting cords of attachment).
Still nothing, and I mean nothing, moves out LARGE frozen blocks of stuck energy like past-life regression, either Coletta-style or Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®.
Modestly, Coletta Long Ruled the Field of Past-Life Regression
Once, when training me, Coletta mentioned this in an offhand way
“I’ve probably facilitated more past-life regressions than anyone alive.”
That’s because Dr. Long began facilitating past-life regression therapy at the age of 18. She continued steadily, right until retirement around age 85.
Until Coletta retired for health reasons, she was doing 15-20 sessions per week of regression therapy — either 2 or 3 hours each. Plus making her own appointments, helped by no receptionist or other assistants.
Not just “No retirement,” folks. It was easily 50 hours a week. For example, Coletta responded within 24 hours to every question I ever asked her, setting a standard for how to mentor with unfailing responsiveness and generous help.
Mostly she helped individual clients. In addition, Coletta also did excellent group work with hypnosis and past-life regression. And she did it ethically, powerfully. With inspiration.
Why did she work so hard? One reason, I suspect, was that inspiration.
Coletta Long’s work was at least as inspired as you would expect the work of a minister to be. While running a Unity church, she also juggled a huge number of client for past-life regression. Eventually even she couldn’t work quite that hard, so she had to choose.
What did she choose? The past-life regression. Fortunately.
Because there are many great Unity ministers but only one pioneer of this caliber in the field of past-life regression.
Coletta Long’s Two Best Sayings
Even if you never get to experience past-life regression from practitioners she has trained, at least you can enjoy Coletta Long’s wisdom in the form of two wise sayings.
“You’ll always be in some body somewhere.”
Once Coletta Long told me a story about her beloved father, who died young. He understood the concept of reincarnation and told her how great it was. “You take on a fresh, new body,” he said.
That’s true. I believe you can have all the incarnations you desire. And if you have some sessions of past-life regression, you just might understand at a gut level just how true this is.
Personally and professionally, I find Coletta’s saying to be a powerful way of moving beyond fear of death. If this helps you, too, that’s Coletta Long. Because she gave wisdom so generously and freely.
“There are no innocent victims.”
Again and again, past-life regression proves this to be true.
With the methodology developed by Dr. Long, it’s routine to not only find out WHY certain awful things have happened to you, but to heal the stuck frozen blocks that remain. Blog-Buddies, that’s the process to seek. As a consumer of past-life regression work, don’t go to a practitioner who just helps you find the story.
Find someone who can get the energy aspect cleaned up. For good.
And maybe, like me, you can use Coletta’s idea about “innocent victims” when you read the wailing and victim-talk that are so prevalent in popular culture. To me, unhelpful in the extreme!
What I’ll Remember Most about Coletta Long
I got the news of her death in the form of an email. It came a couple of hours after I had facilitated a session of Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis.
The news was expected. She had been living with family for years. But she really does live on in my heart. To me, she is family of sorts. This teacher feels kinship with every helpful teacher, official or unofficial.
And Coletta Long was one of my greatest teachers, both in terms of knowledge and generosity.
I’m only one of the students whose work is a living memorial to her great breakthroughs in the field of past-life regression. About her courageous and visionary work, I use a term that many fling about easily but I do not. In the field of hypnotism and past-life regression, Coletta Long was a genius.

That’s why we have a COMMENTS box below. Write anything you like, really. Because how often do you read about a person of her caliber.
But none of these moves out the large-intensity frozen blocks. That requires the work of past-life regression, either Coletta Long’s pioneering system or the one I created with help from her. With suuch wonderful, help!
