From the Publisher
From Bestselling Author Michael Newton
Dr. Michael Newton, best-selling author of Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, returns with a series of case studies that highlight the profound impact of spiritual regression on people’s everyday lives.
Edited by Dr. Newton, these fascinating true accounts from around the world are handpicked and presented by Life Between Lives hypnotherapists certified by the Newton Institute. After recalling memories of their afterlife, the people in these studies embarked on life-changing spiritual journeys—reuniting with soul mates and spirit guides, and discovering the ramifications of life and body choices, love relationships, and dreams by communing with their immortal souls. As gems of self-knowledge are revealed, dramatic epiphanies result, enabling these ordinary people to understand adversity in their lives, find emotional healing, realize their true purpose, and forever enrich their lives with new meaning.
About the Author
Michael Newton, Ph.D., holds a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, is a certified Master Hypnotherapist, and is a member of the American Counseling Association. He has also been on the faculty of higher educational institutions as a teacher while active in private practice in Los Angeles. Over many years, Dr. Newton developed his own intensive age regression techniques in order to effectively take hypnosis subjects beyond their past life memories to a more meaningful soul experience between lives. He is considered to be a pioneer in uncovering the mysteries about life after death through the use of spiritual hypnotic regression. He now trains other advanced hypnotherapists in his techniques.
Dr. Newton is the author of three best-selling books, Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives (Llewellyn, 1994) , Destiny of Souls: New Case Studies of Life Between Lives (Llewellyn, May 2000), and Life Between Lives: Hypnotherapy for Spiritual Regression (Llewellyn, 2004). Dr. Newton has an international reputation as a spiritual regressionist who has mapped out much of our life between lives experience. He has appeared on numerous national radio and TV talk shows to explain our immortal life in the spirit world.

As editor of Memories of the Afterlife: Life Between Lives Stories of Personal Transformation, he continues the journey but this time through the efforts of 32 experienced practitioners from all over the planet who completed their training at the Michael Newton Institute. Their stories are no less fascinating as they enhance the credibility of the earlier works by repeating and reinforcing this shared glimpse of the afterlife. The case studies represent a variety of life situations, all with the powerful life-changing insights that can only be gained by remembering who you truly are, why you came here and with whom you are sharing the ride.
Although certainly not a pre-requisite, if you haven't read Journey/Destiny of Souls I recommend you do so as these classics will explain things in a bit more organized and detailed fashion and will help fill in the blanks. MEMORIES OF THE AFTERLIFE is more unfettered and assumes at least a passing belief in life between lives rather than trying to prove it. I found it to be an excellent complement although it surely stands on its own as a fascinating read full of information and insight. I also found an interesting phenomenon absent in the earlier books - that you can get direct guidance about present situations from the LBL world while seemingly experiencing past events, showing that our concepts of past and present really don't extend beyond our limited physical reality.
If you are stuck in the belief that you have one life in which to get it right and then it's either heaven or hell for eternity, then this book probably isn't for you. If you are open to a belief in multiple lives (along with the majority of people on this planet), then I highly recommend this book as it will help shed some light on the age-old quest regarding the nature of our immortality.
I have no doubt that some would find this book beyond the pale, and many would doubt the premises raised in those earlier works, and for such readers I would advise you not to buy this book. On the other hand, what you find here is a series of snapshots taken from trained practitioners in LBL (Life Between Lives) hypnotherapy, each example annotated by Michael Newton with footnotes referring to three earlier books for reference.
The events were fascinating, and encouraging, provided you had read the previous books. I suspect that if you came here ignorant of those earlier works, you would find this a little fragmented, but still enjoyable. Speaking for myself, however, I found the examples interesting, showed how varied the style of therapist could be, opened up a broader picture of events that were described in that true home of the soul and - for me most importantly - gave a deeper understanding of how I could relate to those events in my life which found a mirror in these stories. I feel that my attitude to the vagaries of life has been influenced, improved and mellowed as a result of looking at the sequence of my life through different eyes.
If you examine all this evidence dispassionately, you might well wonder why reincarnation has not been embraced by the scientific community and society at large as accepted fact. The main reason seems to be that from early on, it was strongly suppressed by organized religions as a threat to their exclusive agency of the divine. As an example, Christianity excluded reincarnation from its orthodoxy at the Fifth Ecumenical Council in A.D. 553. It seems that this discouragement has cast a long shadow across the centuries.
Michael Newton has built his career concentrating on what happens after we die and before we are re-born, the Afterlife. In his newest book, he introduces us to some of the many therapists he has mentored, giving them an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and showcase some of the amazing cases they have encountered. The subtext of this book is that there are now competent LBL therapists in many parts of the world, whose competence is vouchsafed by the master. And that once again, as we saw in "Journey of Souls" and "Destiny of Souls", the range and depth of healing and growth facilitated by this modality are truly impressive and, not to mince words, astounding.
So Newton introduces us to his lineage of therapists who work with his imprimatur. They are an impressive group, but he has not cut them loose and abandoned them. One of the best features of this book is the footnotes that Newton has appended to each of the cases presented, which elaborate some of the themes and refer us to more extensive material in his previous works. Thus the current cases can be viewed as adding bricks onto an existing conceptual structure. This is an elegant touch.
Finally, I want to acknowledge Michael Newton for being a courageous pioneer in a field with a heavy religious and societal headwind and a most generous mentor, who has graciously introduced us to a talented new generation of LBL therapists.
