From the Back Cover
As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas. Yet these memories allowed her to recover from her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks in a way he'd never experienced. His skepticism eroded further when she began to channel messages from "the space between lives" and reveal truths about his dead son that she never could have known. Now a leader in the field of past-life therapy, Dr. Weiss has helped thousands connect with their past lives and experience tremendous healing. In Miracles Happen, Weiss, along with his daughter, Amy, shares these remarkable real-life stories to reveal how past-life regression holds the keys to our spiritual purpose.
The awareness that we have multiple lifetimes, separated by spiritual interludes on the other side, helps to dissolve the fear of death and bring more peace and joy into the present moment. And in Miracles Happen, personal stories, accompanied by Dr. Weiss's inspiring teachings, reveal how getting in touch with our past lives can profoundly and permanently heal mind and body. In the end, we come away inspired, renewed, and assured of the truth that we are eternal beings who are free to heal our current wounds by better understanding our past. It's a practice that helps us improve our current lives, evolve along our spiritual paths, and live each day with purpose.

Considering that reincarnation is the norm throughout most of the world's religions, and was part of Christianity until the 5th century, lends credence to its validity. What loving parent wouldn't give their child chance-after-chance to get things right, rather than condemn them to eternal punishment after one try(lifetime). The idea of only one lifetime, only makes sense if you wish to control people by fear, not by the loving God that Christians believe theirs to be.
Weiss' new book is broken up into chapters that tell stories dedicated to a particular aspect of what visiting your past lives can do for you. Chapter 1 shows us how we're all connected. Stories show how synchronicity works by having attendees to Weiss' classes sitting next to the one person who holds the key to whatever problem they might be having. It shows how a loving universe prompts certain people into our orbit to show, or tell us something important to our lives.
Chapter 2 goes into how some past live can be validated through searches on the Internet, or visiting towns with a familiarity not possible in the regressed present lifetime.
I think one of the most important aspects of past life regressions, which is discussed in Chapter 3, is how visiting a past life and reliving a trauma, can dissipate current emotional problems. Maybe it's the greater understanding stemming from a current life that makes the emotional pain go away, regardless of whether the regressed person is only using their imagination, as some would argue.
Throughout the chapters is in this 300-plus page book, example after example are given as to the healing aspects of past life regressions, and Brian Weiss is hardly some new age guru. He's a trained psychiatrist from Yale who happened upon past life regression by accident when one of his patients slipped into a past life that cured a present ill. He discusses this in previous books of which I forget the details, but again, it's like the universe needed this amazing man to help validate the idea that we live life after life, not graduating until we learn to love unconditionally. What a wonderful way of looking at life.
I think that most important part of past life regression, is to teach us that we don't really lose anyone. We live life-after-life, and that karma is just us wanting to come back to enjoy the opposite side of our last life so that we can understand things completely. This leads me to believe that the universe was set up to run in an orderly and very loving manner, with a God at the head who loves us unconditionally and gives us all the time and opportunity to become like him, and any good parent would.
Weiss' book is filled with so many testimonials of real people who've been healed by his work, that it's a total joy to read. Take a break from the bad news on t.v. to learn that the world really is a good and fair place to live in. I will be giving this book to anyone I know who's depressed, and feeling defeated by life. Thank you Dr. Brian Weiss.
Mal. 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
Matt. 11:13-14 [Jesus:] For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
Matt. 17:12-13 [Jesus:] But I say unto you, that Elias is come already and they knew him not but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the son of Man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
Jesus nowhere denied reincarnation, not even when the disciples asked him of the man born blind, "Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" (John 9:2)
As for the other naysayers who have posted that Brian doesn't even check to verify if these past life stories happened. Ok, yeah it might have helped, but that would be a lot of work and besides, it doesn't really matter. The important thing is being healed. As for Music Lover and the other reviewer who borrowed from Music Lover who said that we must have a powerless God. God is using Brian and other plr therapists to heal people. As long as people are being healed, who cares! This book is about healing.
That said. Brian Weiss does it again! This book is awesome and very thorough! Very detailed and healing from start to finish with some really good techniques too. He says over and over again, "We are all connected." He talks about animals. One of my favorite quotes was when he said, "karma is not a punishment, it is an opportunity for growth." We are soul and we are eternal. Well anyway, I don't want to give too much away. I just like the stories people wrote him and every one of them no matter how similar, are unique. Many Lives, Many Masters and Only Love is Real are still my two favorites by him but this one's great too. Makes me want to visit the Omega Institute! Amy's a great writer too!
I had to edit this to add, after hearing about this book at the workshop I thought about buying it at the table they had there. I'm very glad I didn't, because the next day I discovered I had bought it two years ago for the kindle. I had started it but never finished and had completely forgotten I owned it. As I have read his other books repeatedly, I guess I just wanted to block this one from my memory.
