View Full Version : Michael Newton's afterlife studies

Michael Newton is author the books "Journey of Souls", "Destiny of Souls" and "Life between Lives". He is a skilled hypnotherapist, starting from a skeptic's perspective (and one of an atheist) who discovered that he could not only regress people into their past lives, but beyond their death in those lives forward into their "life between lives", the return of their souls into the spirit world. Having worked on thousands of subjects over decades he calls this "spiritual regression" and "regressing into the superconscious mind", a deeper trance than the one used for past life regression.

In "Journey of Souls" he described the full journey a soul takes from after death into their next incarnation - how they meet their guide, their soul group, how traumatised souls receive healing, how some souls go into seclusion, the meeting with the council of higher beings who help evaluate the past life, that souls study and evaluate their incarnations, and how the soul choses its next incarnation and slowly merges with its next human baby host. This is derived from a case file base of thousands, which gives it great credibility.

In "Destiny of Souls" he fleshes out more detail about some things in the first book. In "Life between Lives" he appeals to other therapists to reproduce his methods. While the first two volumes concentrated on his case files, the later one is more theoretical and technical in nature.

Newton claims that soul's have a very high degree in chosing their destiny, their incarnations, what they want to learn, and get to preview their lives. There is little chance in our lives, but free will is respected. Not-incarnated souls however tend to see their choices differently than incarnated beings, because body and body ego tend to merge into the soul's reasoning. This is the problem with this kind of learning - but it seems the whole business of incarnating is about learning lessons about life and achieving a state of perfection out of the clean slate souls are created with. It is also stated souls are inherently good, and that evil acts are regretted most strongly by the souls themselves. The energies of souls that have taken on too much negativity and did evil are healed. Free will is respected, but souls in spirit form have an inclination towards self-improvement, learning and growth, and therefore chose to incarnate.

It is surely an interesting read. BeeK and my wife inspired me to read it.

Which one of the three books would you recommend for me, knowing approximately the kinds of books I like to read?

Well, CF, I guess the 1st one is a good start. It gives a "full tour" of the life between lives. I read through it like a breeze, and it's no small book. ;) Newton includes a lot of "interviews", dozens of case files, in the first two books. These are excerpts from the regression with him talking to the subject, and you can make yourself a good picture whether you think the approach has merit or not. Sometimes you might indeed say he leads his subjects, it's up to yourself to decide.

I liked this book a lot, also the ways his subjects change in hypnosis and how their answers differ. The second book is excellent if you got intrigued by the first. The third I find not so exciting, it has a different target audience - "Life Between Lives" is aimed more at therapists wanting to get into this style of regression. It gives more of his views how such a session works, but the case histories from the first two books are a more interesting read.

Be well,
