With that being said I personally think pushing to know past lives could end up giving someone false memories, one naturally start remembering ones own past lives when it's time for that to be happening. Past life readings done by others can be dangerous as in someone may be given info they aren't able to handle and were not ready for.
I agree with you and therapists in general who have effectively used past-life regressions to address issues in their current life.
However, I also agree with you that the quest for past life memories can result in issues like "false memories" and being "given info they aren't able to handle and were not ready for". The latter can be overwhelming.
In any case, I do appreciate your response even though I have not personally pursued the "past life" discovery approach.
