Michael Newton, Ph.D., started as a California state-certified Master Hypnotherapist. He is the renowned author of several groundbreaking books on the subject of past life regression: Journey of Souls (1994), Destiny of Souls (2000), and more recently, Life between lives (2004). He is also the editor of Memories of the Afterlife (2009), which includes a host of case studies written by members of his growing network of Life Between Lives therapists.
As Newton recounts in the featured interview, being rather sceptical by nature and with no particular religious background, it is almost by accident that he got involved in the experience of exploring these uncharted territories. His patients originally resorted to hypnosis in order to relieve persistent trauma-induced pains. It is the consistency of their reports concerning the “spirit world” which brought him to seriously investigate issues related to the immortality of the soul, the afterlife and past lives.
Newton has spent some forty years of his life researching the field, and the results are indeed worth reflecting upon. In the video excerpts presented here, he delivers important conclusions he has reached through personal experience. He reflects on what he believes are the most crucial issues in life: the meaning of our presence on Earth, the possibility of a future life in a spiritual world, the existence of soul groups and the moral implications of living several lives. Interestingly enough, he seems less interested in past lives themselves, as in the state in which the soul finds itself when it is hanging between two lives—a situation which he describes as “life between lives”.
The cases reported by Michael Newton are numerous, displaying consistent and recurrent patterns. Some of them are in striking accord with Ostad Elahi’s views regarding the intermediate world, particularly the key idea that our present life is only a transitory phase, that the world is an educational opportunity where the soul can prepare itself to make the best of its next life.
