Lightbulb Past life regression

Ida Lvovna Rubinstein (Russian: Ида Львовна Рубинштейн; 5 October 1885 – 20 September 1960) was a Russian actress, dancer, patron and Belle Époque figure..Born in either Kharkiv, Ukraine, or Saint Petersberg into a wealthy Jewish banking family, Rubinstein was orphaned at an early age. From the age of two, she and her sister were living in a mansion on the English Embankment, Saint Petersberg, with their aunt, the socialite Madame Horowitz. Her family were extremely wealthy industrialists, and were closely connected by marriage with the Polyakov family (from which Anna Pavlova was rumoured to be illegitimately descended) and the Raffalovich family..

She had, by the standard of Russian ballet, little formal training. Tutored by Mikhail Fokine, she made her debut in 1908. This was a single private performance of Oscar Wilde's Salomé, in which she stripped nude in the course of the Dance of the 7 Veils..In several notable works of Western culture, the Dance of the Seven Veils (usually described as danced by Salome) is one of the elaborations on the biblical tale of the execution of John the Baptist...

Rubinstein is not considered to be in the top tier of ballerinas; she began her training too late for that to have been a possibility. She did, however, have tremendous stage presence and was able to act. She was also a significant patron and she tended to commission works that suited her abilities, works that mixed dance with drama and stagecraft. In 1934 the French government awarded her the Légion d'honneur, and then in 1939 the Grand Cross of the order, their highest honor. In 1935 she was awarded honorary French citizenship, and in 1936 she converted to Roman Catholicism..She died in 20 September 1960 (aged 74) at Vence, France, and is buried nearby...
Used loosely, the term "bardo" refers to the state of existence intermediate between 2 lives on earth. According to Tibetan tradition, after death and before one's next birth, when one's consciousness is not connected with a physical body, one experiences a variety of phenomena..Human pregnancy can be divided roughly into 3 trimesters, each approximately 3 months long. The first trimester is from the last period to the 13th week, the second trimester is from the 14th to 27th week, and the third trimester is from the 28th week to 42 weeks...
Les Sylphides is a short, non-narrative ballet blanc. Its original choreography was by Michel Fokine, with music by Frédéric Chopin orchestrated by Alexander Glazunov. Glazunov had already set some of the music in 1892 as a purely orchestral suite, under the title Chopiniana, Op. 46.. In that form it was introduced to the public in December 1893, conducted by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov...

Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions or a type of confabulation. Past life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting. Most advocates loosely adhere to beliefs about reincarnation, though religious traditions that incorporate reincarnation generally do not include the idea of repressed memories of past lives..Experiments with subjects undergoing past life regression indicate that a belief in reincarnation and suggestions by the hypnotist are the two most important factors regarding the contents of memories reported...
