#146 Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Past, In Between and Future Lives
Johnny Burke: Welcome to Closer to Venus. I’m Johnny Burke, and today’s guest is Rachel Claire Farnsworth. She is a transformational coach and wellness therapist that specializes in releasing anxiety, autoimmune disease, and alcohol dependency. She also has had many experiences including past lives, in-between lives, and future lives.
Today, we will discuss these experiences and what we can learn from them. Rachel, welcome to the program.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Thank you so much, Johnny. It’s great to be here. Thank you for the invite.
Johnny Burke: What is a transformational coach and what made you choose this path?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Well, it wasn’t the plan. I didn’t wake up one day and decide that’s what I was going to be. It’s kind of how it guided me, really. I was going through a bad time in my personal life. My children had gone to live with their dad. I was in a second marriage that was very toxic. I hadn’t realized it was because that was my normal, but it gave me space to really figure out what I wanted because I’d been that full-time mom and without the kids, I felt so lost and broken. So one of my friends said, she thought I could be a psychotherapist. I was like, that sounds really heavy. What do you do with that? And how long does it train? So, I found a counseling course that I could train in locally, but it had hypnotherapy. You had to train in that for the first year, which I wasn’t interested in, or so I thought. The long story short is I never did the counseling course. I did a hypnotherapy course. I did an advanced hypnotherapy course simultaneously because it just brought me into, wow, this is amazing. You can make your subconscious mind work for you and interestingly how the universe works.
I qualified in June, 2018 and in October of the same year my daughter was going through a flare-up of her autoimmune disease. She was 14 then. She’d been diagnosed with it when she was a year old. So she’d been suffering a long time with this autoimmune disease, osteopathic arthritis.
And we decided to have a session together because she was having a flare up. They told us that she needed to go back on drugs. It was probably more powerful than she’d been on before, and neither her nor I could face that again because it meant she was being violently ill every weekend. So, we decided to have a session and see what happened with no expectations. I was expecting to do 50 sessions, one a week for a year or more, to see if we could reduce her pain. In that one session we had together, we were able to release it, and she felt the shift. She was doing all this in the session, and I said, “what was that all about? “She said, “oh, my joints were just clicking back into place.”
It’s like, really? Wow, that’s incredible, isn’t it?
Johnny Burke: Yeah, it is.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: it was like, well, if I can do that without really trying, it’s very much by numbers. First of all, relax the client. What else do I need to do? That kind of thing. So, if I could do that without really knowing what I was doing, what could I do if I actually did know that was the curiosity behind it.
And then the more I did help people, the more I was able to say, well, I might have got something here. So it grew legs of its own. And in 2020, I gave up my part-time job and did this full time. Just two weeks before lockdown hit in the UK.
That was the long and the short answer. It just, it’s funny isn’t it? how the universe presents things to you in bite-sized bits. It can be palatable because if someone told me you need to train in hypnotherapy, I’d have just gone flat, no way. I’m not interested. So it is interesting how life works out really.
Johnny Burke: It does. And hypnotherapy does seem to be an entry point for a lot of these intuitive experiences, hypnotherapy, and meditation, as well. And apparently, this is something that you use to help your clients with their health issues, but I think what you do is you go into their past lifetimes. But before we get into that, have you had experiences yourself with things like past lives and life in between lives and things of that nature?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Yes, I have. what my first experience of a past life was being an Indian, like a red Indian, and as that moment I was actually witnessing myself dying, I could feel this pain in my forehead, like I’ve been shot with an arrow. And I actually believe that’s why I started with migraines in this lifetime, because since I’ve been in that scene, my migraine stopped. Migraines just finished. So I think that was a big thing. You know, head injury in a past life, can very often be a trigger to a migraine in this lifetime.
Johnny Burke: You’ve had experiences with past lifetimes, life in between lives and future lives. Which one happened first? Or did they kind of all happen at once?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: The red Indian one that I’ve just described as the first one I witnessed. Then in that regression session, I went to an in-between life as a second seed, which was after that Indian one that I just described. So it was like an in-between life, and that in-between life experience wasn’t looking at soul contracts or soul family members.
I don’t know whether you’d say it was a very British thing. I think they’re just very, very. quiet. It felt like I could be a piece of soil. I could be the air, I could be a little sparrow, a tiny bird. I could be anything. But the immense peace and blissful feeling that I had was incredible. Like I really felt connected to everything, everybody. Whole universe. It was just an amazing, blissed feeling like I was on something, but I wasn’t. I was just there going, wow. You know, and it took a while to sort of work out who I was because I, I wasn’t a thing. I was just like a piece of air or a molecule or whatever. And it was a like a choice I could choose to be in anything. It was a very surreal experience, but it was a beautiful one.
Johnny Burke: Okay. These experiences, because you’ve obviously had more than one. Did they occur before your therapy work and practice, or was It about the same time? What was the timeline?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: It was because of the work I do. It was another therapist guiding me into going back into her past life or going into whatever we were exploring. She’d just trained and thought, oh, let’s just experiment and see what happens and where we go. And we were both amazed at, what’s possible because the subconscious mind is an incredible tool. It is 95% of everything we do think and feel about ourselves. And using the subconscious, you’re able to go past lives, future lives. Wherever you want to. This lifetime, you’re able to go all over the place. You can time hop.
Johnny Burke: Well, talking about future lives is something that I don’t hear a lot about. during a discussion about past lives or the in-between space, the in-between space does come up an awful lot. It’s got several different names. the healing place, home, somewhat even call it heaven.
But how do you switch from viewing a past life to viewing a future life? What is that
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: like?
It is very similar to going back into a past life. It’s only we’re just time hopping in front. It’s like, just seeing yourself instead of being pulled back, you’re going forward into five years, 10 years, a thousand years, wherever you want to be. And it’s an amazing thing, and I love it because if you can imagine being your own, guide, you’ve already done it five years, 10 years in the future, 20 years, whatever it is that you want, wouldn’t it be amazing?
And it is possible to go into 20 years in the future to see where you are. What were your learning curves? what mistakes did you make? Who did you collaborate with? all those sort of things that, that is just, being your own guide, support, and mentor. Finding out where you are. Are you still in this country? Have you moved? what was that launching thing into your business into your personal life. Who did you meet? Who were you with? It’s just a beautiful thing. And then you bring that. experience, that knowledge back into the now and the energy of your future evolved self into the now, and so you’re collapsing time. It’s beautiful.
Johnny Burke: Yeah, that would be useful.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: It’s amazing. And you can see who you collaborate with. You can see if you write a book, what’s your book title? What’s it all about? It’s just an amazing experience, and it’s just like collapsing time because you’re not second-guessing so much. You’ve got more of a laser focus into what you want in life. It’s brilliant.
Johnny Burke: So how far into the future were you actually able to go?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Well, when I was training, Ange, who trained me, she said,'” let’s go a thousand lifetimes into the future.” Wow.
Johnny Burke: A thousand lifetimes or a
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: thousand years?
A thousand lifetimes. Yes. A thousand lifetimes. And you’re like, can’t get my head around that. what’s that even going to look like? And some people in the group were getting messages like, just keep going or you’re doing the right thing or on the right path. That kind of thing. I didn’t get that. What I got was this amazing, like electric bolt of lightning. It felt like it was coming through my crown chakra. It felt really powerful, like a bolt of lightning. I had to ask it to turn it down because it was just so intense, but it felt like I was being held. It felt lovely. it felt loving, but it was very, intense energy, and it just filled the whole of me up. It was an incredible experience. And, It was just an amazing experience of all this energy. I didn’t know where to do it, and I’m like, I need to turn it down. ‘Because it felt like I was going to explode. It was so intense. obviously, I didn’t .
Johnny Burke: If you’re that far into the future, what does the world look like? I mean, are there still buildings? Are there still phones? Do people still have jobs or what?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: That would be a great experience. I don’t know. I didn’t experience that. It was just the energy of it. It was just like a snapshot, but it would be great to go back, it will go forward again and find out those sort of answers. It was just in that moment I don’t feel like I had a body. I felt like I was more of, um, evolved being, so maybe I’m not the right person to ask what we’re doing on the planet, because I don’t actually feel like I had a body in a thousand lifetimes. I felt like I was this more evolved spirit being.
Johnny Burke: Like maybe a light being?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Definitely Yes, yes.
Johnny Burke: I’m not sure the earth will be here a thousand lifetimes from now ; that’s just a thought.
Let’s talk about your practice. How do you use what you’ve learned about past lives and the in-between space and future lives actually to help your clients?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: I go back to how, when, and where the issue they want to work with began. I work with anxiety, depression, and long-term health conditions because the body tells a story. I. Whatever your body’s telling you, there’s a message there in the pain, so it’s just about going back to how and where it began.
Very often, it is this lifetime; sometimes it is a past life; I’ve helped clients go into future life, like in five years’ time, six months’ time, where those issues have been resolved and how they feel. Bring that energy of being well and feeling like they can move their body in all the ways they should. Bringing that energy back into the now as well. So it’s very intuitive how I work, but it is all about releasing the pain and symptoms. It’s there’s an emotional pain line behind the presenting symptoms. So it’s just about going into where it began, analyzing it in the conscious mind and releasing it and letting it go.
Johnny Burke: So when you bring a client into the future, let’s say five, 10 years from now, that’s them in this life so they can actually see themselves in their current and their future surroundings. How much does It actually change your experience?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: It can be so different. I was helping a client release psoriasis, and we did that, and then we went five years into the future; she’s at college right now. In five years, she’s actually on stage as an opera singer. She saw her engagement ring on stage. She’s looking down at her hands and goes, “Oh, my hands are clear. I’ve not got psoriasis anymore. Oh, I’ve got this engagement ring on. Oh wow. It’s amazing. I feel like Adele, I’m on stage. I’ve got thousands of people. I’m not even in this country.” I think she said she was in America, and she was just, like owning it, being this amazing opera singer. And she said, oh, next week I’m in France and we are just doing this tour around the world of this amazing thing.
And, right now she’s still training at college or university and she’s helping people learn how to play guitar and singing and trying to get money in order to fund her university studies. And so that just blew her away of how she was so evolved five years down the line.
Johnny Burke: Have you ever had an experience with this practice of taking them into the future where their circumstances maybe get worse instead of better?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: I’ve had one that immediately comes to mind where she was 10 years in the future, and she saw her mum dying. And obviously, that was very stressful for her. And I said to her, it doesn’t actually mean that, in 10 years to the day your mum’s dying, maybe there’s a message behind it. Maybe it’s a metaphor. And she was able to see that she got a lot of unhealed wounds around her mom and so we were able to do that, and she felt so much better after she’d done that. I think her parents were in America; she was living in Europe. She felt her brother was looked at better than she was, that kind of feeling. cause he was still at home and she wasn’t, and she felt like she got a fend for herself in different ways to him. So it was looking at the relationship around that, and then she was like, oh yeah, it was just a metaphor. I just needed to clear some emotions between my relationship with my mom and myself. That was a really beautiful session.
Johnny Burke: So, do you think as practitioners using past lives, past life regressions, past life readings, as well as the L B L space, like between lives and future lives; do you think the future lives component will become more popular in this type of practice, or not necessarily?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: I hope so because if you can time hop in the future and you can gain some knowledge about what you’re doing and how you’re helping people or how you’re helping the planet, isn’t that a better way so you can sort of speed down a bit almost to get the best out of the life that you are living now. I think that’s just an amazing thing. it’s not cheating, it’s just a lovely way, isn’t it, of going and using yourself as your guide and your leadership to be able to do so that you’re more laser-focused on what you want and any mistakes or things that you’ve made along the way or didn’t work out quite so well, you can see what they were and you’ve got different choices. I think that’s a really lovely thing to be able to do.
Johnny Burke: Well, from what I’ve witnessed, in these episodes and the testimony is that it seems to be a more advanced type of therapy for people to see what is holding them back and how it can be corrected as opposed to conventional therapy, which could take, much more time and much more money.
That’s what I’ve seen so far, as farfetched as that may seem to some people. that messaging is pretty consistent across the board. So, let’s talk about more of your extraordinary experiences. I believe you have a memory of actually being in the womb. Would that count as an experience in between lives, or is it something different?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: I think it’s something different, but it doesn’t really matter what label you put on it, to be honest, it’s just an experience, isn’t it in life history of experiences. and it was something that came to me quite a lot as a little kid, but I dismissed it thinking it was just like a dream almost that just kept reoccurring in my head when I was awake, not just to sleep, but when I was awake . It was kind of me going in and out body thing. It was very weird. It felt like I kept going up. It felt like I was going up and asking, look, I need to just get some things straight here. Am I doing this, this, and this? Who is my tribe? Where do I need to be? I feel scared. I don’t want to do this. Can I change my mind? It was all that,
interestingly, when I was born, every year used to say to me, “You didn’t know how to be born. you got it wrong” because I was feet first, and so I was cesarean. And so by being told that every year, it made me feel very anxious because it made me feel like if I don’t know how to be born and I shouldn’t be here, I shouldn’t be on the planet. Someone’s going to find out that I’m an imposter. That’s the real thing. It really felt so true that I’m an imposter. I’ve been reading Dolores Cannon’s work and she talks about how we do know what we’re doing. we come in for a reason and I was there sort of doing this sort of thing in the womb, like, I’m not coming out. It’s too scary. So I was like avoiding that whole, right. No, I’ve changed my mind. I’m not coming out. and looking at my life, I can see why I would feel like there’s a lot of stuff I had to go through before I start the transformation and start doing what I’m doing now. I had to go through my own pain and heal it in order to do what I’m doing now. I can understand why little me would feel that way.
Johnny Burke: So you had that memory even as a child then, right? Were there any other memories or any other incidents of seeing spirits or anything, that could be considered psychic phenomena, paranormal phenomena.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Yeah, looking back, yes, I think so. I had an imaginary friend and so did my sister. We both called them different things. I was scared of the hallway where I used to live in our first house. It felt like a dark energy near my bedroom, like a shadow. And so even just running to the toilet and back again, I used to sort to do that quickly. But then when we moved house, I never experienced that again, so I can’t put a definite on it. I had got that feeling though, that there was something there for sure.
Johnny Burke: and didn’t you also have an experience with, I believe it was a Ouija board where I think, your Nan came through? Tell us about that.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: yes. that. was so weird. I was actually just going to a Chinese, meal with friends. It was my boyfriend’s friends who used to work with him, so it was just a normal night out. Only. this friend of my boyfriend said, oh, you know, we’d had the meal, we’d been drinking a little bit, and he just said, “why don’t we get the Ouija board out?” you know, just grabble letters.” And, his girlfriend was like, “absolutely not. I’m going to sit in the lounge. I’m not participating. ” The three of us were like, well actually, I’ve never done that before. My mom’s told me never to do it, but why not? You know?
So we got the scrabble letters that are made, the alphabet round and a glass. And asked if there’s any air and the glass started to move and we started to laugh, you know, I was in my twenties and then it was, well, “who’s there? “And it came out my nan. And so, we asked it, what was my grandfather’s name? “And it spelled “George.” And we’re like, okay, I’m the only one who knows that -nobody else is pushing this glass, and I’m certainly not pushing the glass. And then it was “what message have you got?” And the message was long and the scrabble letters were sort of going well off, they were falling off the table at this point because the glass was moving so fast and the message was, “Rachel leave Clive”. Clive being my boyfriend’s name.
Johnny Burke: the glass moving? Was It moving by itself or did you have your fingertips –
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: It was moving like that very fast. Nobody was holding it. It was too fast with all three of us had got our fingers on the glass, but it was moving so fast. No one was pushing or pulling it. They couldn’t have been. It was a bit spooky, and I was in my twenties, so, I walked home on my own at three o’clock in the morning because he self-dumped.
Johnny Burke: Interesting. Was that your first experience with what we would call the non-physical world? were there others? Okay. didn’t also your son have a past life memory?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Yes, he did. That was a bit very interesting actually as well, because he just started crying. And I went to comfort him, as you would, and just said to him, what’s the matter” sweetheart? “And he just said, “I want my other mother.” I said, “what do you mean you want your other mother”? “Well, not you, mommy, my other mother. “And we didn’t talk about mother. That’s not a word that we particularly used. You know, it’s mommy or mom. But he distinctly said, “I want my other mother, not you, mommy.” And so, I was trying to get him to talk, he was sobbing uncontrollably. I would’ve taken him there if I knew where she was.
I can’t describe how I felt -powerless, helpless. I didn’t know what to do except to hold him and tell him that he was loved and that I loved him and I’m his mom. He was like,” no, mommy, I don’t want you. I want my other mother” sobbing uncontrollably. Now I talk about it to him and he has forgotten all about it. He doesn’t recollect that at all.
Johnny Burke: So, he’s forgotten about it completely.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Mm-hmm. He just thinks I’m the woo-woo one now.
Johnny Burke: You also have a story about your current partner and messages that I think you both were receiving at the time.
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Yes, that was quite an interesting thing as well because, I’ve been to a group of people and they’d sort of said to me, oh, you might be interested in this telegram group. I went on that and then somebody else Introduced me to another telegram group. It was about real history, geography, and a spiritual group on Telegram, and Kevin was on both of those.
To me it was like, wow, if somebody thinks like me, that’s great. You know, just on its own. That’s incredible. I said to him, “look, I think we need to have a conversation. The fact that you’re in two groups with me is pretty good.” so we just had a conversation. I wasn’t expected to go anywhere except just to sort of share some stories really.
And the spiritual group he was in was about consciousness in Lincolnshire. He actually lives in Nottinghamshire, so I have no idea why I was in that group at all. and as we were talking, he said that his wife had died just 10 months ago and he, he’d got three children and that sort of stuff. He told me where he lived. And I that’s interesting because when I had a spiritual reading in 2019 with my friend from school who’s a spiritual medium, she told me that I’d be moving to the center of England. There were her words, “you’ll be moving to the center of England.” I want to say Birmingham, but it’s the center. That’s her exact words. And I’m like, I don’t want to move there. Why would I want to move there? When I told him that, he said, “oh.” I said, “why is that? “He said, “because I help plant a tree in a primary school to mark the center of England. “I’m like, oh, okay. That’s a bit cool, isn’t it? and now, I live 10 miles from that tree. So that is just incredible.
But also, while we were talking, he told me that before his wife died, that he had to sell his hot tub because the money was tight and I had just become a bestselling author to the Power of Reinvention in a co-author book, and I decided to celebrate by buying myself a hot tub. Well, three weeks before, I hadn’t even got any notion of buying a hot tub, but I just wanted something to celebrate. It was 2021. Holidays weren’t really a thing, so I bought a hot tub just to blow up the inflatable hot tub. And when I told him, he said, “oh, that’s funny.” Said, why is that? He said, “well, my wife said she’d get me one because they had to sell it. She said, “oh, she’d find a way to get me a hot tub one way or another. “And we both got goosebumps in that moment. So it was, like truth bumps.
Johnny Burke: Okay. So, what was the special message that you had for each other in a nutshell?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Well, that was a special message that he’d got the message that that he’d planted the tree to Mark Center of England, and that’s where I needed to be because Penny had told me that in 2019, this was now 2021,
The hot tub thing was like a confirmation. It was like a blessing. He took it as a blessing that it was okay to move forward in a different relationship.
Like his wife was saying, it’s okay because here’s the hot tub. I told you I was going to get you one, and here it is.
Johnny Burke: Anything else that we need to know on the topic?
Rachel Claire Farnsworth: Just that our subconscious minds are so powerful. They’ve got all the answers, whether you’re consciously aware of them or not. The subconscious mind just knows if you’ve got pain and symptoms, it’s just your body telling you you’re out of alignment. It’s just really powerful and the more I do it, the more I want to do it. It lights me up so much. It’s just very exciting too, to work with that subconscious mind to go past life, future life, the now life, it doesn’t matter, you know, the answers are within all of us, and going within is just the most amazing thing to do.
Johnny Burke: Past lives, in between lives and future lives. Rachel, thanks so much for joining us today. How can our listeners find you online?
