Many in the scientific community shun life after death, considering such experiences impossible. Marcel Westerlund is the exception.
The Swedish psychiatrist, not only uses hypnotherapy to treat people's mental illnesses—he uses it to explore their afterlives as well. Despite being a highly controversial approach, his use of hypnotherapy results in some fascinating stories...and is even integrated directly into the sciences.
Travel back with a patient as she recounts being a Queen of Egypt. Discover how a man finds his own grave, finally allowing him to connect with his spiritual existence and find healing. Read account after account of people who come to grips with their past lives, and use these experiences to find happiness in this life.
Pills may curb depression, but Westerlund discovers that delving into people's past lives provides a healing force that he could never accomplish through regular medicine. He talks candidly about his job as a healer, as well as the importance of the spirit in mental recovery.
Journey into the soul and learn, not only about the existence of past lives, but the science behind it.

As one of the leaders in the field of Interlife work, our research department and general membership are always interested in new publications in this remarkable emerging field. The Author is known to us having training with our organisation for one week residential program in the UK in 2006 and took membership for a short while afterwards. Our approved training participants are all qualified and experienced Hypnotherapists who are required to have read the works of Dr. Michael Newton; "Journey of Souls" (JOS) published 1994, "Destiny of Souls" (DOS) published 2000 and "Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy" (LBLH) published in 2004. We continue to be inspired by personal stories of the afterlife and previous incarnations and it is clear from the author's stories that he too has felt that inspiration. Whilst passing reference is made to Dr. Newton's ground breaking work, there are a number of examples where the author has remarkable similarities to that of Dr. Newton's teachings without footnotes that denote the true source of the information. A list of these similarities by chapters follows:
We have stated the chapter title in the author's book followed in brackets by a chapter reference to the work of Dr. Newton, as per the abbreviations earlier in this review:
"The colour and groups of souls" - (The mixture and colour of soul groups - DOS P170)
"Guides" - (Our Guides - Chapter 8, JOS p107)
"The Council of Elders" - (The Council of Elders, Chapter 6, DOS p201)
"Life Choices" - (Life Selection - Chapter 12, JOS p201
"The Ring of Destiny" - (The Ring of Destiny - Chapter 9, DOS p 355)
Of further note is page 263 in "Afterlife" where two tables appear.
The first of these denote the colour of souls and their level of advancement tabulated in a way that has striking similarities, though some small differences from Dr. Newton's tables in JOS p103 and DOS p171. Again Dr. Newton has been referenced in passing on the previous page.
The second table on page 263 in "Afterlife" shows attributes associated with certain colours.
These have been shown below, though in brackets afterwards are those put forward by Dr. Newton on p174 of DOS published in 2000.
"WHITE: Purity, clarify, restlessness." (Dr. N.: WHITE; Purity, clarity, restlessness)
"SILVER: Ethereal, trust, flexibility." (Dr. N.: SILVER: Ethereal, trust, flexibility)
"RED: Passion, intensity, emotion." (Dr. N.: RED: Passion, intensity, sensitivity)
"ORANGE: Sprouting, impulsive, open." (Dr. N.: ORANGE: Exuberant, impulsive, open)
"YELLOW: Protecting, strength, courage." (Dr. N.: YELLOW: Protecting, strength, courage)
"GREEN: Healing, nurturing, compassionate." (Dr. N.: GREEN: Healing, nurturing, compassionate)
"BROWN: Down-to-earth, tolerant, industrious." (Dr. N.: BROWN: Grounded, tolerant, industrious)
"BLUE: Knowledge, forgiveness, revelations." (Dr. N.: BLUE: Knowledge, forgiveness, revelations)
"PURPLE: Wisdom, truth, divinity." (Dr. N.: PURPLE: Wisdom, truth, divinity)
It is understandable that people who have studied with our organisation may be influenced by our ongoing research and the remarkable life between lives work of Dr. Michael Newton that evolved over 35 years and 7000 clients. The details as provided above, go beyond that which requires a passing reference and a single listing in a bibliography at the end of the book and in our view is not offered to the public with the integrity that they so deserve.
A redeeming feature is that beyond these human observations, more and more people are being inspired in their lives, by touching their divine essence... and awakening an understanding of their immortal identity.
Dr Westerlund truly does a fantastic job of exploring the part of humanity that goes beyond merely the physical, and left me feeling inspired and in awe after reading the book. A must read!
Finally some much needed evidence and support for something which I'm sure many of us have long suspected to be true - life after death!!
Well written and with scientific punch in the author, a definite buy.
Top reviews from other countries
He is an experienced hypnotherapist, and he has chosen to share his insights by writing a comprehensive work amounting to nearly 400 pages. The detailed transcripts of his sessions with his patients are thoroughly absorbing, and he gives accounts of their past lives, future lives and also of some interesting personal experiences of the realms beyond normal waking consciousness.
He goes on to speculate about a possible relationship between his observations and the findings of modern physics. While there will always be people who have minds that are closed to the possibility of there being any merit in hypnotherapy, anyone with an open mind will find much to reflect on here.
