One of the first metaphysical books I read when I started my journey of self-discovery was ‘Between Death & Life’ by Dolores Cannon. Dolores was a hypnotherapist specialising in past life regression or Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy as it is also called. What is a past life regression??? Past life regression is basically a deep form of hypnosis which enables a person to access their past life memories. Pretty far out, right?! When I first read this book I was fascinated, I had never heard anything like it before. However, I was already comfortable with the idea of reincarnation and I fully resonated with that concept but there was one thing believing in past lives and another revisiting them in the current life. My soul itched to try it out but my ego mind gave me 50 plus reasons to be afraid of it and to stay well away and so I listened to my ego mind…for a little bit anyway.
Fast forward to a year later, after months of Inner child therapy and subconscious healing work, I decided to revisit the idea of doing a past life regression…
By the time I decided to do this, I had come a long way on my spiritual journey. Nothing of a metaphysical nature phased me anymore, it was all becoming my normal. I was very ready and very excited to dive into my past lives. Even though I had done a lot of subconscious healing by that stage, I still felt like I had some blocks with certain things in life and I was pretty sure these issues were coming from past lives. For example my issues with romantic relationships, even though were triggered by my own relationship with my Dad when I was young in this life, I believe originated in a past life but just played out again and again in each lifetime because I never healed this dynamic in other lives. It’s karmic, what ever we don’t heal comes with us into the next life until we break the cycle. The way to break the cycle is to go on the inner quest and heal it. Connect with your higher self. And that is exactly what happens in Past Life Regression, you can go back to the life that the issue first happened and let your Higher Self come forth and heal it. Sounds crazy but it’s true!
Once I made the decision, I thought, how do I find a Past Life Regressionist in Ireland?! As it turns out there are quite a few which I was pleasantly surprised at but then my next problem…how do I choose? I know…I’ll meditate on it, nearly always helps. Right after my meditation I went to my computer, did another search and up popped Julia Balaz from Quantum Healing Journey, a Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapist, who trained through Dolores Cannon. There is no such thing as coincidences 🙂
So of course I had to invite the lovely Julia along to answer some questions on how she ended up becoming a full time QHHT and Soul Alignment Practitioner so she could help people heal their mind, body and soul by revisiting their past lives and Akashic records.
Julia, first off thank you so much for taking time out to answer some questions, I know how busy you are. Julia has a 6-week waiting list for her QHHT sessions and is juggling many other things also in order to help heal humanity and expand consciousness. So, first things first, tell us, how did you start your spiritual journey or journey of self-discovery?
Many thanks for taking time to share more of the unusual topics in your blogs. It is wonderful to see how you are gracefully bringing together the bohemian lifestyle with spirituality. I am honoured to answer your questions today.
I had access to paranormal activity magazines as a kid, then books on consciousness, psychology, human body science and all topics metaphysical followed once I got access to the city library. At the age of 11, I had a spiritual experience and started consciously communicating with my Higher Self. I was advancing steadily through my constant study and through various meditation practices. In retrospect, I lead a double life. I was fully integrated within a strong and very active musical community, very social, as a violin player, so much of my young life was spent on stage but no one knew about my passionate interest in all things metaphysical. I identified as “in the closet spirit junkie” until I turned 30 years old, when I felt it’s time to come out. The high-level social interactions my whole life helped me to be very comfortable with ANY type of personality. I was getting very well prepared for the work I do today.
How did you end up becoming a Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapist, why did you decide to do this for a living?
I always knew that I will be helping people in some unusual way. What pushed me over the edge was my daughter’s arrival. When she turned two, and started testing the boundaries, she was triggering anger that I had no idea was in me. I couldn’t understand where this anger was coming from, I was puzzled as it was getting worst. I thought it must be from a past life. I booked a QHHT session and to my surprise, I regressed to my current life childhood traumatic memories that were suppressed. I had a powerful healing experience in that one session and the anger was gone. I was able to respond to my daughter’s way of being with patience and love. The QHHT experience had such an impact on me that I signed up for the Practitioner Training and I completed Dolores Cannon QHHT Academy in January 2011 and never looked back.
So, what exactly is Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy or Past Life Regression and what are the main reasons why people come to you in the first place? And can you also explain what the Higher Self is and what are Spirit Guides as all can show up in a QHHT session?
QHHT experience is an amazing journey of consciousnesses and truly is a way of finding that all answers and desired healing are coming from within the depth of our being.
It is a type of hypnosis that helps us access and work with deep subconscious, the part of our psyche that links to our Higher Self – higher levels of our consciousness that can access our soul records including our past lives, ancestral lives, parallel lives. It is the part of us that has all the answers, and the part of us that heals our body. It is incredibly rewarding to guide and watch people from all walks of life tap into their deep subconscious in hypnosis, I will never get tired of it.
People come for a QHHT session for different reasons. Most of them have questions about their life purpose, their family, work, health issues, past traumas, extra-terrestrial connections… All clients come with a desire to make their life better. Often, they feel that they are meant to be doing something different with their life but need clarity on what that something is. And sometimes they come with questions about our Universe, God/Source and their connection to it. Overall, clients want to better understand why their life has been the way it has, and most importantly, how to move forward in the best way possible.
In QHHT sessions, people are able to perceive realms that are beyond this physical dimension. They are able to perceive and communicate with their ancestors, relatives who passed away, that part is always very healing for them. Some clients perceive beautiful light beings that they understand are their spirit guides, they receive healing, gifts and meaningful messages and most of all a strong feeling of reassurance that they are watched over and guided every step of the way. In QHHT we also tap into the wisdom of the body and find answers to why certain physical issues manifested. When the client learns about what needs to change in their life and they align with that new behaviour, the body heals itself spontaneously. As Dolores Cannon (founder of QHHT) often said, “THERE ARE NO LIMITS TO WHAT IS POSSIBLE, THE ONLY LIMITS ARE IN OUR OWN IMAGINATIONS.”
Can you explain what channelling is?
Our human brain has a capacity to perceive information coming from non-physical realms. But unfortunately, due to the way our society is today, most people are not using this ‘gift’ With training, a channeler knows how to perceive a direct communication from another self-conscious being that is residing in non-physical realms and then translate it into human words. Sometimes the information comes in form of images, vibration, feeling, sound…It varies depending on what type of being the channeler is connecting to and depending on the style of the channelling. Some channelers are aware of the process and remember what comes through, some go into a deep trance state where they translate the information that comes in, but when they come out of trance, they don’t recall full details of what was discussed.
I know some people who are more left brain tend to find it difficult to do this type of hypnosis but you are able to tap into their higher selves or Akashic records and get the information from their past lives for them instead. Can you explain more about this and what the Akashic records are?
Akashic records also known as Soul Records, can be described as an ancient infinite library that is full of books filled with information about every soul’s experience. It is a 5th dimensional realm of records that can be accessed by humans only by going within, through our consciousness. We all can learn how to access our own soul records. There are many courses available now dedicated to this topic. I have trained with Andrea Hess to become Akashic Records reader and for clients who are not comfortable with the idea of hypnosis but still want to know about their past lives, about their spirit guides, about their soul origin and their unique purpose, I feel honoured to bring that information through for them if permission for me to access their records is granted.
Some people who read the records, literally experience a book that comes to the forefront of the library and the information they are looking for is in the book, they read the book.
For others (including myself), the information becomes available as a movie story, or images, symbols, colours, feelings etc while we are inside the library hall. I go into deep meditation and write down pages of notes before I meet my client. It is not something I can do at a snap of a finger. My brain must go into deep Theta state.
I love conveying information to clients that deeply resonates or is validated by their own life experience. For example, one client I was reading for, I saw him as an ancient well-known philosopher, always debating something with his colleague. He had goosebumps all over his body as I said it. To my amazement, he told me that his best friend has a tattoo on his right arm with that philosopher’s name and that they always debate about quotes and stories now known to be coming from this philosopher’s life. For me, nothing tops something like this. Some stories coming though in my sessions are so unbelievable to me, but I learned to fully trust and accept, because to my clients, they make so much sense.
So many clients are deeply grateful when they receive a validation of their Truth that they felt unworthy of accepting.
Do you have to completely believe in the process for the session to work, i.e. if someone came to see you that was sceptical could it still work?
It is very important to be open to what is possible. A sceptic approach or a person whose trust was repeatedly abused in the past, or a person who has trauma connected to being relaxed, will be blocking accessing deeper levels of consciousness in hypnosis. But if they are willing to get better and work on something like this, I can guide them and help them release those blocks effectively in a Metaphysical Anatomy healing session which is a super effective way of releasing subconscious blocks, negative associations made with positive things, clearing trauma issues, all done without the need of going into deep hypnosis. I always suggest this session for the very left-brain focused clients or worried clients first.
What has been some of the most profound and healing QHHT sessions that you have facilitated to date?
It is wonderful when physical issues are healed, but those that stand out the most for me are sessions where clients connect to energy/consciousness that they perceive as Source/God. Watching their blissful, very emotional, deeply healing and transformational experience is such a gift. In those sessions, I almost tangibly feel the vibration in the healing room shift significantly (as if surrounded by a super powerful magnetic field) After a session like that, their feedback is always the same. I am transformed, my life has changed for the better, they feel so much peace and connection to inner guidance, they see nature differently, more vivid colours, birds sing in harmony…Deep gratitude.
What advice would you give to people who want to connect more with their Higher Self and Spirit Guides?
Practice mindfulness, switch off external distractions often and daily. Only by doing that, we can start becoming aware of the variety of thoughts we have and start recognising which thoughts are coming from our ego, which thoughts are from our higher self, and which thoughts are from external sources. I have created easy to follow video course full of practical exercised called: Higher Self connection. It is great for beginners. https://higherself.teachable.com/p/connect-to-your-higher-self
Live with the intention aligned with something like: “I am open to communicate with beings that are aligned with my highest good” Or “I am learning to recognise the guidance of my higher self.”
Or, choose a question related to your life and then go into a quiet space within with the intention for the answer to come from your higher self. Be patient and open. Write down or voice record whatever is coming as thoughts, feelings, images, other sensations. It takes practice but it is so worth pursuing.
What advice would you give to people who have just started their journey of self-discovery?
Question everything in your own life. What I mean, question any limited behaviour pattern you have, every negative thought pattern. Ask yourself why am I doing this in this particular way, when did I learn this behaviour? Were my parents or grandparents like this? What if I am here to break that negative cycle and evolve beyond that?
Once you are aware of something as a learned behaviour, you can realise that you are now IN CHOICE. It is no longer automatic behaviour. Ask yourself if you really want to continue that way or are you ready to change that old behaviour and replace it with a new empowering, liberating behaviour. Then do all you can to override the body’s programming, by repeatedly exposing yourself to that new behaviour until it becomes so familiar to your body that the body will accept it as new program that now permanently replaced the old program.
Keep going cracking those old outdated fear-based programs. Seek discomfort, seek transformation, seek new experiences, seek evolution.
Keep feeding your mind information that comes from those who mastered whatever area of life you are interested in. Find a way to have fun with people. Connect with people who brighten up your day. Practice gratitude many times a day.
Don’t get too distracted by exploring the non-physical realms, spirits, angels etc. I am down for practical spirituality, grounded in here and now. 😊
You also do one day events in Dublin from time to time and, I’m delighted to say that I was at your last event and it was so beautiful. Tell us more about these events?
Yes, they are a great way for me to reach more people. One coming up now is on the 8th of Feb in Arklow. Focused specifically on becoming fully aware of those sneaky limiting conditionings of our mind and body that often started many generations before us. I spend portion of the event sharing vital information about how the body, mind and spirit works – expanding consciousness of the attendees, and then take the group through one guided hypnosis in the morning, focused on dissolving heavy energies in the body and clearing limiting blocks on subconscious level. And another guided hypnosis in the afternoon to help them connect with their higher selves, their spirit guides, their supportive ancestors to receive guidance. It’s so nice to see people connecting with each other, sharing incredible stories, feeling supported, uplifted and encouraged to continue their spiritual journey of self-mastery. Each group event is focused on different layer of the ascension process, awakening from unconsciousness. More info here: https://www.quantumhealingjourney.ie/events
Julia, I really appreciate you agreeing to be a part of this blog as my QHHT session was another amazing, mind blowing experience on this awesome soul journey. I had done a lot of self-healing work up to that point, but it just went to another level after your session. Thank you so much for all the amazing work you are doing to help people be their best selves. You are truly a beautiful soul and I am so very glad to have met you.

I’m sure you are wondering what past lives I ended up visiting… it turns out I was married to a Swedish Warrior in one life, I was a hermit in another. I also lived a life as a gypsy fortune teller (this was one of my happiest lives, no wonder I’m obsessed with tarot cards). I worked with crystals in Atlantis, I worked making Kimonos in Japan (so now I know where my obsession for crystals and kimonos comes from too :D) I also lived lives in Morocco and France, and I was shown several other lives too. I had many lives that I loved to create things and I am glad that I am now bringing that creative side out in this life too. What I found most interesting was that all my passions in my previous lives are all showing up in this life too. Your higher self will only show you lives that will help you heal and evolve in this life. I was also shown why I had to experience difficult lives as I needed to learn certain life lessons and so I could see how those lives have made me the person I am in this lifetime. And most importantly my Dad (who is in spirit) showed up near the end of my session with a beautiful message and confirmed what I already knew that he has been guiding me the whole time on my spiritual path. It’s hard to put the feelings I felt during my session into words, all I can say is that it really was out of this world…literally. If you are at all interested in doing this type of therapy, I urge you to do it, you won’t regret it. And if you are still reading this blog, thank you, thank you, thank you for having an open mind. And if you have any questions on this subject, as always please feel free to drop me a note on [email protected]festyle.co.uk. or post a comment below.
