Over 7000 people/souls share their experience,
through regression hypnosis, as to what happened
after they died and before they reincarnated.
What are the implications of such research? If we
reincarnate, how does that change your view of who
you truly are? What is the purpose of life? How
might this change how you approach this particular
Certified Master Hypnotherapist Michael Newton developed a
technique to regress his clients back in time to recall memories
from their past lives.
During this process he
stumbled upon a discovery of enormous proportions. He was able to
bring the souls back to the place where they go before their next
life - a life between lives...
Out of 7,000
regressions, a large majority had eerily similar
recollections of a place that many of them called "home."
One of the most fascinating aspects of Newton's work was that it
didn't matter who he was working with or what their previously held
beliefs were in regards to the concept of "a
reincarnation - in fact, many
didn't believe in these concepts at all.
After coming out of a
session, many of these people were changed forever. They were able
to recount some of their past lives and feel and clearly see the
relationship those previous lives had to their current life.
In the world of hypnotherapy,
past-life regression is almost
common, but what's unique about Newton's work is his ability to get
his subjects to recall memories from being in the womb, and then
from before that point as well, to the place between each life.
This was a place where,
often, all of the soul family was waiting and welcoming with open
Many of the subjects were
often surprised to see who was there as some of these people had
provided a challenging experience for them in their previous lives.
According to Newton, the hypnotic responses from his subjects in
regards to the afterlife provided credible information
because of the consistency in their reports.
Often the subjects would
even use the same words and graphic depictions of where they were
and what they were seeing.
Newton had no reason to
feel that anyone had a motive to fake their stories, and treated
each case as if he was hearing the information for the first time.
In other words, he was not suggesting words or ideas to them, but
rather giving them the freedom to express these lives on their own.
The similarities between
the subjects was quite astounding.
