Many Lives, Many Masters

Many Lives, Many Masters

Do you believe in reincarnation?

Some people believe you can come back as animals and things. I think we would mainly not choose that as our consciousness is at a higher level, although some would argue that. When I speak of reincarnation I am talking reincarnating into a new baby body. It is a topic that fascinates me.

This is one of the first books I read on the subject. Although I already believed that it was the way things work. You may agree or disagree, but this book is a great one to read if you want to learn more about this subject.

In 1980, Weiss, head of the psychiatry department at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, began treating Catherine, a 27-year-old woman plagued by anxiety, depression and phobias. Weiss turned to hypnosis to help Catherine remember repressed childhood traumas, what emerged were the patient's descriptions of a dozen or so of her hitherto unknown 86 past lives." Catherine's anxieties and phobias soon disappeared", says Weiss, and she was able to end therapy.

This book will help you to understand reincarnation better and help you to see how you can access your other lives.

Many Lives, Many Masters - The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives

Our body is just a vehicle for us while we're here. It is our soul and our spirit that last forever

My Experience

I went to a Lutheran School from K- 8th grade. I was baptized and in 8th grade I was confirmed. Yet by the time I was a teenager I had my mind opened by other ways of thinking. I heard about Shirley MacLaine and her books. Right away I just knew that we reincarnated. It helped everything make sense to me. All the questions that religion could not answer could be made sense of with reincarnation.

By the time I was 23 I was married with 2 children. It was at that time I sought out someone who could regress me to a past life. I spent many years seeing this therapist and was regressed many times by her. I went a life where I was in Salem, Mass., one where I was a big ugly pirate man, one where I a princess in a castle, one where I was the servant in a castle, one where I was a soldier with a red coat, one where I was a roman soldier, one where I was a housewife to the husband I was with at that time (my first husband) and one as a Buddhist Monk. I know there are many I have not been too and there are others that I have not mentioned here. One of my lives just came to me randomly with the name and time period and place. That one I was able to verify later by looking up the facts to see that all that had come to me was surprisingly true. It was one from the late 1800's so I was able to verify it. I also later was regressed to it by a past life therapist and myself as well.

Since then I learned to regress myself. I took hypnosis classes after I could already regress myself. I am able to regress others as well. I have learned to progress myself also. I have been meditating for at least 20 years so that has made all of this easier for me.

New York Times article

Dr. Weiss was censured by the medical establishment in 1988 after he published "Many Lives, Many Masters." In it he details his work with a patient he calls Catherine, who, under hypnosis, the book says, remembered multiple past lives, relieving her of paralyzing phobias. It has sold more than a million copies.

Now, Dr. Weiss said: "Doctors are e-mailing me. They're not so concerned with their reputations and careers. We can talk about this openly. And it's not just psychiatrists, but surgeons and architects."

      I am a Hindu but don't believe in the existence of soul or rebirth. Having said that I respect the view of people who do believe in these things.

      From view all memories come from past lives and there's no separation by birth and death- I would say I am only ever 'in' this life- the past lies in events and conditions but not life itself.
