RIP – Hypnotic prenatal regression

The RIP technique empathizes  elements similar to the experiences you can find in the NDE cases and it is in this area where I give my important contribution to the NDE studies. My studies about the RIP technique began with the intention to make experimental my degree thesis¹and I get my inspiration from the studies of H. Wambach, R. A. Moody and B. Weiss.

I would like to point out that among the stories of life told by people under RIP, there are many important common points with those of NDE (as Wambach pointed out for the first time) like for example:


1 - OBE experience

2 - Tunnel experience

3 - Light experience

4 - Experience of a contact with unknown disembodied “creatures”

5 - Experience of a contact with Spirits of deaths Experience of the General Vision of own life Others


By using the RIP technique I mostly dedicated to the phenomena which came out when the hypnotized people say to come back to a previous life, live again a previous (?) death, all that happen during the passing away and after that.

My RIP-Scale questionnaire (inspired by the NDE-Scale’s Greyson) give me the occasion to recollect a lot of data from which we can say that:



up to now all the people under RIP technique have described the separation from their physical body (OBE) and the Light experience;


a lot of people have described the contact with light or bodiless “creatures”, unknown or death people;


all the people have lived again and analyzed all the most important aspects of their previous life (this is the General Vision of their own life you can find in the NDE)





As regards RIP technique - on the bases of my personal experience - I don’t agree with the thesis of some scholars who assert that people after a RIP experience have specific (and expected) inner changes. Even if you can repeat the RIP experience several times it is wrong to say that the probable changes of  the hypnotized  people way of life can be considered  an expected and/or common phenomenon. Even if I don’t fully agree with the reincarnational hypothesis and/or with that asserts that after the death, your consciousness (psyche or soul) survives forever, it is possible to say that the death of the physical body and of the consciousness happen in different time. People way of life can keep alive post mortem the consciousness part on an existential level that a great number of human beings cannot perceive. By accepting this hypothesis it is possible to explain the PSI phenomena as apparitions of the dead or mediumistic contact with them².
