As a talented film maker Martini is also a talented story teller. Reading his book was like listening, riveted, while a friend tells the story of his amazing adventures while discovering new lands.
In the film Martini shows his documentary skills by clearly and simply progressing through all the salient points about the life's work of Psychologist and Hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton. In just an hour and a half.
Dr. Newton's life's work was focused "by accident" upon the reporting by his clients about their experiences in a "Soul Space" between and during their human incarnations. With 7000+ case studies over 30 years Newton summarise his studies as "Life Between Lives" or LBL.
Dr. Newton's tool for helping his clients and exploring LBLs was very deep hypnotherapy. As Martini progresses through his documentary he interviews Dr. Newton and other LBL Hypnotherapists. He also shows excerpts from a number of LBL sessions including his own.
When I read Martini's Flipside book in the fall of 2011 the only other literature I read covering the same territory as Dr. Newton was Seth's three novels called The Oversoul Seven Trilogy (1973, 1979, and 1984). Seth's told his stories from the Oversoul's point of view - learning lessons at once from several of his incarnations in different centuries - who didn't know of his existence through most of the series.
Martini, in the book and the film, shows Dr. Newton staunchly determined not to read anything which may have biased his research. He didn't know about Seth. His client's point of view was from the view point of an incarnated soul who only experienced his or her "oversoul" in deep hypnosis.
Martini, Newton, and I describe ourselves as very skeptical. I come from a strong science background in Astronomy and Physics, Mathematics and Statistics, and Psychology. I'm not skeptical about Dr. Newton's research.
Although, I have slightly different (yet augmenting) perspectives, I believe that 1000 years from now Michael Newton could be more famous than Issac Newton.
I only have one technical critique of Martini's documentary. As I got absorbed in the action of the video, some of the captions disappeared before I finished reading them. Fortunately, pause and rewind saved me.
Watching Martini's film could well improve the positive feelings you have about yourself, the universe, and everything.
This documentary will hopefully inspire lots of viewers to read Newton's books and remember, as I have, the spiritual context for our physical lives. Those who do will experience more ease, joy, love, compassion, and understanding in their lives and will perhaps lose their fear of death.
The documentary is low key and not slick, which suits the subject. I found the imagery distracting, but I guess there had to be something besides talking heads on the screen. If you're interested, you can also find a couple of interesting lectures on the subject by Richard Martini on YouTube. He's a very good speaker and seems like a nice guy.
Still, given all of those annoyances and a few more, I highly recommend this film because it is utterly full of credible, incredible interviews and regressions. It truly is content I'll watch more than once.
I was hoping to show it to a friend who’s on the edge of believing in the Reality that this video presents. But it was not structured, edited and narrated to make it very coherent or convincing. Perhaps that was not its purpose. However, as someone already convinced about LBL, I did enjoy putting “faces” to the books I’ve read.
