Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Weiss is the psychiatrist whose best-seller, Many Lives, Many Masters (1988), chronicled the life (and past lives) of one of his patients. Since his breakthrough with Catherine, the hypnotized patient who was able to transmit messages from the beyond as well as recall former lifetimes, Weiss has continued his past-life therapies. Here he threads bits and pieces of what he has learned into the story of Elizabeth and Pedro, two patients who, unbeknownst to Weiss, have lost each other across lifetimes and now have another chance to reconnect. Although the stories of Elizabeth and Pedro form the book's centerpiece, they will probably be the least interesting, at least to the New Age audience, who has heard it all before. Weiss is better when he's explaining the philosophy that incorporates past lives into a therapeutic setting. This isn't the best book on the subject, but Many Lives, Many Masters sold more than a million copies, and Weiss' name, as well as an extensive marketing campaign, is likely to generate demand.

Customer Reviews

This book was very easy to read.
L. Leach
While Dr. Weiss's first book, MANY LIVES, MANY MASTERS, was a watershed on the subject of past life therapy, I was most impressed with ONLY LOVE IS REAL.
George Dalzell
I like the book and will recommend it to all who will read and are interested in reincarnation.

Format: Paperback
Only Love is Real by Brian Weiss, is the third book by this incredible author. If I could, I would rate this book with 10 stars. Although one does not have to read his previous two books to read this book, he does make references throughout, but his explanations guide the reader and one is never confused or lost. Many Lives, Many Masters and Through Time Into Healing are his previous two and both are as riveting as this book. As with his other books, I could not put this book down either. The messages imparted in this book are numerous for the deep connection of twin souls. Weiss states, "Destiny dictates the meeting of soulmates. We *will* meet them. But what we decide to do after that meeting falls in the province of choice or free will. A wrong choice or a missed chance can lead to incredible loneliness and suffering. A right choice, an opportunity realized, can bring us to profound bliss and happiness."
Weiss shares the story of two of his patients relating similar past lives, and he eventually connects the two and "intervenes" to introduce them. I am sure we have all had the experience of meeting someone and just "knowing" that we know them on a much deeper level, but we can't explain it. Those that come into our lives are either ready to meet their "other half" or as Weiss put it, they are "not awakened" yet.
Weiss speaks throughout the book on the meaning and value of love and indeed, "only love is real." He urges us to forget and forgive our past mistakes, to learn from them and move on - to live fully in the present and not to worry about the future. This book is one incredible, beautiful lesson in love. Weiss urges the reader to listen to one's heart, as the ego has other agendas, as do other people. "There is someone special for everyone.

Only Love is Real, by Brian L. Weiss is fantastically well written. He candidly shares the lives of his patients and his own insights in a highly skilled manner. I do not desire to give anything away in this review. However, I will tell you Weiss's accounts documented in Only Love is Real are both fantastic and very surprising. Personally I was enthralled with the reports of Weiss's actual patient sessions. Only late in the journey of this volume did I realize where he was going; somewhere incredibly stirring with absolutely electrifying social and spiritual implications! The passages you will read will resonate for a long time after you have finished the book. The depth and implication of the shared accounts cannot be entirely comprehended at first view. Weiss has unearthed something truly remarkable here. I would be very surprised if any reader would not find their outlook on life and love changed and enriched after reading Only Love is Real. This is not simply another book by another physician. Contained in the pages of Only Love is Real are revelation after revelation. Weiss's subject is intriguing and keeps the reader wanting more. So often medical doctors lack a tactful, enjoyable to read prose. Weiss's imagery and countenance draw the reader deeper and deeper into the story. Only Love is Real will also appeal to many readers of romance or "love stories". There is no kissing, no intensely tender love scenes, but the story presented is arguably one of the most passionate, loving and poignant tales of true love ever shared. I would recommend Only Love is Real to anyone. I do not know any person that would not benefit from and enjoy the book. It is not necessary to believe in reincarnation or life after death to be captivated by Weiss's book!

Format: Paperback
This book was the first of Brian Weiss's I'd ever read, and I must say I stayed with it until I finished every last sentence! The book verified what I have long believed...that we travel from one life to another with "soulmates" and ultimately make contact with those individuals in one form or another. How many of us have met an individual for the first time, only to instantly connect with that person as if we'd known them forever! Dr. Weiss's experiences with his patients prove that love is real, and once you find that very special person, you connect with them in a way that even death cannot take away. The book sent chills through me as I read experiences similar to what has occurred in my own life with one special individual. What a thrill it must be to sit through a regression session with Dr. Weiss! Since reading "Only Love is Real", I've read all his other books, and eagerly await the next!

Brian Weiss is a credited psychotherapist and professor of psychology at the University of Miami. When working with patients, he specializes in hypnotherapy. Weiss is a strong advocate of the theory of reincarnation of the soul. He uses hypnosis as a key to get into his patients' past lives. Weiss analyzes the events that occurred and the people present in them that shape who they are in their current flesh. Only Love is Real is a book that explains how the soul creates an attachment to the people it has associated with in other lives, thus realizing the term "soulmate." He explains how a soulmate can be in the form of a friend, mother, father, sibling, and most notably a lover. Only Love is Real is Weiss' log of the hypnotherapy between two patients from very different backgrounds that proves his belief on soulmates. Elizabeth was seeing Dr. Weiss to deal with the recent death of her mother and to find answers to her problems with relationships. Pedro was undergoing past-life regression therapy with Dr. Weiss to solve his personal troubles. The two were complete strangers to each other. While undergoing the hypnotherapy, Weiss made the shocking discovery that Elizabeth and Pedro were precisely describing the same lives. They were not strangers at all, in fact, they were soulmates. The two had lost each other during the transition of lives and their souls brought them together again under the therapy of Dr. Weiss. Weiss was to serve as the median between two long-lost lovers. In what could have been a career-destroying move, Weiss goes on to reuniting the souls after years of solitude, and proving that "Only Love is Real."

I had already grown a personal respect for Dr.
