Many Answers, Many Questions,
This review is from: Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives (Paperback)
Atheism, abortion, deja vu, soulmates, aliens, after life, racism, homosexuality, painful childhood...questions we all have on these and other topics are compellingly explored, some even answered in this collection of case studies by a professional hypnotherapist who discovered a breakthrough technique that opened the doors to our "life between lives."
For me personally, the most satisfying quality of Dr. Newton's work is that it confirms everything that I have been taught by my own spiritual teacher, Barbara Martin, author of Change Your Aura, Change Your Life: A Step-by-Step Guide to Unfolding Your Spiritual Power and Karma and Reincarnation: Unlocking Your 800 Lives to Enlightenment.
Dr. Newton is not a spiritual teacher, nor does he have a direct connection with the higher so the information he gives us in this book is not from his own firsthand experience, as Barbara Martin's work is. In fact, he frankly admits to having been a cynical personality and convinced atheist (his discoveries chronicled in this book changed that).
However, lacking this direct connection and a true spiritual teacher's concerns for allowing us to learn how to connect with our own higher self and thereby find the answers for ourselves (not to mention their desire to avoid interfering with or taking on some of our karma), Dr. Newton has no qualms about sharing all the tiniest and juiciest of details. Things a true spiritual teacher will not because they will only distract you from the path, but they are entertaining!
All the information he shares with us he unabashedly and mercilessly extracted from the subconscious recollections of his patients while they were under hypnosis. It is a thrilling read. And if your faith was lagging or a sense of purpose in life was eluding you, you will find this work inspiring. It is a nice intro into a more serious pursuit of the path. You will need to look elsewhere for practical tools.
My favorite part is on our relationships to our teachers (guides) and our soul groups.
There are some things, being only a hypnotherapist with no direct personal experience, that he cannot explain such as the qualities and meaning of the aura, working directly with divine light through meditation, healing with spirit substance, spiritual protection, Lord Christ vs. Jesus Christ, etc. And if you are interested in these topics I strongly recommend the two titles mentioned above. But if you are interested in experiencing your own Life Between Lives, you can go to Dr. Newton's website and find a local hypnotherapist trained in this technique.
