Past life regressions are fascinating to consider, but have you ever wondered what happens between lives? In Destiny of Souls hypnotherapist Michael Newton asks dozens of his own patients to describe their lives from the moment of death right up until reincarnation into this world. Newton described this journey in his first book, Journey of Souls, and now takes us back for a second trip that is described in infinitely more detail. Of therapeutic interest is how spirits contact the living to help loved ones they've left behind deal with their grief. Newton assures readers that they will reconnect with those who have gone before them, even their pets. He answers the full range of questions one could ever think to ask about life after death: How can a soul be in heaven and reincarnate at the same time? How are new souls created? How are souls who've done evil on earth punished? These and many other questions are answered with surprising congruity between respondents.
From Publishers Weekly
Newton--counselor, hypnotist and author of Journey of Souls--draws on his regressions of some 70 clients to explore the existence of souls between incarnations. The most affecting section of the book is the second chapter, where Newton turns his attention to grief and argues that between death and reincarnation, discarnate souls are able to contact loved ones and comfort them. Excerpts of his sessions with clients show people realizing that they have had one partner throughout many lives; that after previous deaths, the couple was reunited; and that after this incarnation, they will be together again. Elsewhere, Newton investigates the nonhuman manifestations of spirits on Earth, including elves, fairies and ghosts. Newton also takes on malevolent spirits; arguing that demons and the devil do not exist, he reports that after working with him, clients who initially thought they were possessed by a "malevolent spirit" usually realize they have miscommunicated with a benevolent spirit who was trying to reach them. A rich volume, chock-full of interviews and fascinating first-person narratives, this book is nonetheless not for the uninitiated; Newton sometimes fails to explain his terminology, so readers who do not know much about "lives between lives" may feel lost. More informed readers, however, will find this a feast, and Newton a charming host.

I'm thrilled to know there is an Other Side, but sometimes it sure sounds like everyone there is on drugs the way they're thrilled and joyful to be working most of the time, going to school, attending lectures on the importance of compassion, etc., passing the Cup of Sorrows, playing games like Tag. From all the near death books I've read, I understand the joy and peace and love there is indescribable. I guess any author trying to describe the details of life on the Other Side for hundreds of pages is going to risk rendering it almost too ordinary rather than extraordinary. Sometimes it sounds complex and filled with hierarchies that aren't really hierarchies because no one minds being at the levels they are at, even if they are lower down, because they're so darn happy. Who cares if you're feeling groovy!
But I love that he's written this book. I love the regressions and the values shown to be important. I love the lessons people learn from their reincarnations. And I love that Earth is considered a very difficult and strenuous school, and the souls that choose to incarnate here return to the Other Side more insightful and strong as a result. Go earthlings!!!
Terrible circumstances we encounter or do might be because we had previously agreed to do them, we are helping someone (another soul) or we might have just decided to do them just because (free will). We have all been told that we come here to be happy, but not true, we come here to experience things we cannot experience in heaven. So yeah, some people have "chosen" to suffer and not get out of the hole cos that's what they came here to experience. The important thing is to learn the lesson quickly, move on and be happy until our next assignment :)
...and there's no hell nor the Devil, only the one you create for yourself with your mind, when you disconnect from God/Source/the Creator.
one last note, this book mentions a little more in detail about ghosts, spirits, "evil" spirits, "possessions" and other entities (not E.T.); very interesting indeed.
