The Best Reincarnation Books
Reincarnation Books I Have Read
Two of favorite reincarnation books. This is a topic I have read books about, explored and believe in. Many of these books have explained much for me. I have been exploring reincarnation since I was 16. I went to a Lutheran School from Kindergarten to 8th grade so I have the roots of Christianity. I love Jesus! I pray many times a day. I feel a good connection with God. For me there is not a conflict between believing in reincarnation and believing in God.
I started out reading Edgar Cayce books on this subject. I read Shirley Maclaine's Books on the subject as well. By the time I was 21 I was married and went to someone to be regressed to past lives as a therapy to find answers about my life. It is now 20 years later and I can regress myself and have been able to do that for many years. I can also regress others to a past life. I took a hypnosis class and I have spent the last 21 years or so meditating alone and in groups.
I believe in reincarnation. I know of some of my past lives, not all of them. It is not like people think, that you are someone famous always. We can't all be someone famous in a past life. On the other hand some surely have been those famous people.
For me I explore reincarnation for the deeper implications, to understand on a deeper level why things happen, why life is painful for some and easy for others, why some die young and others live to old age. For me reincarnation explains these things. Perhaps it can help you too.

I cannot think of permanent enmity between man and man, and believing as I do in the theory of reincarnation, I live in the hope that if not in this birth, in some other birth I shall be able to hug all of humanity in friendly embrace.
I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times.
He saw all these forms and faces in a thousand relationships become newly born. Each one was mortal, a passionate, painful example of all that is transitory. Yet none of them died, they only changed, were always reborn, continually had a new face: only time stood between one face and another.
- Herman Hesse, Nobel Laureate
I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me. Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born.
- Jack London
Videos Talking about Reincarnation
The Soul's Plan
I have read this book and love it. It talks about the soul plan we make before we come. It says we plan out what we will do, who we will be with and everything. I actually got to talk to one of the contributors of this book who told me about my past lives and my soul plan this time. She knew I had children, how many husbands I have had and what I took on in this life. She explained the karma between my first and second husband. It was very interesting and did ring true.
The book uses people like this lady with her psychic ability and also past life regression to find out the details of people's stories. One lady had planned out to lose her son in this life because she did not deal well with his death before. The idea being that we must deal with something and be able to move on with life or we have to deal with that lesson again and again.
The book talks about how if your plan is too intense for someone to be in that life with you, they can bow out and not be with you. It talks about a lady who chose to be deaf so she would not hear sounds to remind her of a terrible past life.
If you are interested in understanding karma and reincarnation and how that works this is the book for you.
One of the most detailed explorations I have seen into understanding why we have chosen certain paths in our lives and how we may use that information to continue our journey as a soul here and now. This book will help thousands of people. A book you HAVE to have in your library! --John Holland, author of Power of the Soul: Inside Wisdom for an Outside World

Your Soul's Plan: - Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born
I believe we are reincarnated. You, I, we reincarnate over and over. We live many lives, and store up much experience. Some are older souls than others and so they know more. It seems to be an intuitive "gift." It is really hard-won experience.
HENRY FORD, Theosophist Magazine, Feb. 1930
Do you believe in reincarnation?
Brian Weiss Books
Brian Weiss graduated from the Yale University School of Medicine in 1970. He is a psychiatrist. I highly recommend his books. He is a respected and educated man who stumbled on reincarnation skeptically. I love that because it makes his discovery and the case studies that follow more believable for those who have a hard time thinking we can reincarnate. His books talk about actual case studies of clients who came in with problems that he helped them heal through past life regression. His book Many Lives, Many Masters was one of my first and favorite books on the subject.
Same Soul, Many Bodies: - Discover the Healing Power of Future Lives through Progression Therapy
This book is where I first was introduced to the thought of going into future lives. It is just as easy to progress to a future life as it is to regress to a past life. The thing about a future life is to keep it to only one life ahead because the choices we make in one life will affect the outcome of the next and what you see can change, much like the Butterfly Effect. If you are old in this life chances are your next life will be more accurate. You can read his book to understand this more.
