To most this is known as karma, or a type of judgment.
In some religions this evaluation is done by a temperamental anthropomorphic God, who surely must have known the outcome of the critique even before the creation of the person being judged. For such a person ignorance is not an option, and enlightenment is the purpose of existence. This text seeks to unfold the implicate order of the "mystery" of the after death scenario. Dr Newton, as a licensed regressionest , is able to hypnotize his subjects, and allow them to regress to the time in between their last life.
He then engages in a session in which he cajoles various subjects to describe what happens after their death from previous lives. The grand epiphany was that you judge yourself. One of the things that kept popping up in the book was that people were a lot harder on themselves than their guides, or the rest of reality for that matter. One of the worst conditions a person can put themselves in, is that of a prison of grief and regret. This is the closest state to hell that I saw throughout the book. Because of the nature of time in that dimension, time is felt as value fulfillment.
A good example given by Dr Newton is that of a lady who was grieving after she had died, because her parents did not allow her to marry the boy she loved. She was 16, and thought there was no need to continue with life, and she ended hers. After death, as a sign of protest, she refuse to move on and grow.
She stayed and languished at her old house for what she thought was about 4 days, in earth time it was 4 years.
The Soul Evolution Intensive with Linda Backman | The Shift Network
Her guilt was that she wasted an opportunity to learn, while in the physical body. The lady ended her life for what seemed like a petty reason, and her profound funk was self created, and complete. When she realized she was the judge, jury, and jailer, the epiphany of the simplicity propelled her soul to go beyond what it was, and evolve.
She realized in some strange way, that she would always be her greatest critic, and her greatest teacher. The author then gives a different example in another area of the soul's existence. This area deals with how a soul decides on the type of life they want to live, and what they hope to gain by becoming a physical being. This case deals with a woman who wanted to be a writer. In the soul's next life it was decided that there would be some type of illness or accident that would limit the persons life choices.
It was hoped that this person, with the handicap, would focus on writing to compensate for the lack of other opportunities. Once this person committed to this scenario, a type of accident was agreed upon, in this case it was the crushing of her legs from a carriage accident. The person had to "remember" to allowed the accident to happen in hopes to galvanize the growth the soul wanted. Once the person committed to memory the plan, they then had to forget it, because if a person knew all the mishaps that might befall them, it might incapacitate most people.
When the time came for the event to happen she was 12 a subtle subconscious voice told her to prepare herself, and at the appropriate time she leaned against the carriage door and it flew open, and the young girl fell out of the carriage and under the back wheel, crushing both her legs. The person did become a good writer, because she had both the affinity and opportunity to cultivate her writing interest. This would be called a preordain accident that helped to fulfill a future event that already was.
The author gives accounts such as this to illustrate actual cases of people, and to explore a possible metaphysical interpretation. The events that we think are accidents are no such thing. During this event there is a council of elders, who monitors your evaluation of yourself. This evaluation is done in a type of temple with a number of guides and people who were significant in that person's life.
The person is at the center of this intimate temple, and a 3 dimensional display of the person's life is presented. You see all the hurt and joy you brought to the world around you, and every minute detail is explored. Dr Newton does a good job in prompting the subjects to articulate more on this scenario. After this review of ones life is done, an over all assessment is asked of the person. The person usually comes to a fairly accurate evaluation, of how they choose to use their free will. Dr Newton states that there is a change in the vibratory rate of a person when they are honest with the true nature of events, and it is this change in ones being, that is the true litmus test of a person's evolution.
The text then talks about the meaning of the term "soul-mate". Explored is the concept of a family of souls that reincarnates with different roles and relationships to one another. These members become friends and benefactors while in the earth plane. If a refreshing and pragmatic outlook is sought about this most important subject, then your spirit will soar as you read, and remind yourself of what I think is necessary, to give yourself that piece-of-mind that millions seek.
This liberating piece of work, as well as the follow up text, Destiny of souls can be ranked as a must read for all serious soul seekers sincerely seeking some solace. Aug 09, Pete Brigham rated it it was amazing. This remarkable book, and its companion book Destiny of Souls, have changed my life. When I first read them, I instantly wanted to try the ground-breaking form of spiritual searching they describe, and in I had my first Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy session.
The experience was akin to what people call a Near Death Experience. I indeed visited with my Soul Group, met my spirit guide, and appeared in front of my Council of Elders to hear their incredible wisdom for the first time. Since tha This remarkable book, and its companion book Destiny of Souls, have changed my life. Since that day, I have experienced LBL hypnotherapy several times, each with powerful insights from the other side— above all, the encouragement to "be" love in this life. I am no guru—just someone who likes talking and tweeting about spirituality.
I realise it may sound outrageous that we can get hypnotised and see Heaven. But thanks to the techniques first revealed in this book, anyone who has questions about the afterlife can simply try an LBL for herself and experience the world of joy and love that I saw under LBL trance. Newton Institute-trained hypnotherapists are increasingly easy to find, and I am positive that LBL hypnotherapy will someday be recognized as the "hotline to Heaven" that it is. Our past lives, and the love lessons they impart, are alive in our subconscious—in this book, Dr. Someday, Michael Newton will be regarded as the pioneer he really was.
Journey of Souls was a revelation to me: of the incredible voyage of growth we all share, a joyous walk to light and LOVE, back to a Heaven we never left. Sep 22, Julie Achterhoff rated it it was amazing. Michael Newton has gone where no one has gone before. He has tapped into the place we go in between lives using hypnotherapy. This book tells the journeys of several people as they are regressed to the point before they were born. This and his other book, Destiny of Souls are my all time favorite books. I read them after my son committed suicide.
These books gave me great comfort at a time when all there was was grief and amazement. I believe in what this book has to say, and know on a soul leve Michael Newton has gone where no one has gone before. I believe in what this book has to say, and know on a soul level that it contains great truths. Reading this book was a life changing experience for me.
I always felt each of us had a special purpose in being here on earth, and that we were provided with others to help us on our journey. This book has cemented these ideas and expanded upon them based on Dr. Michael Newton's hypnotherapy of his patients over a 10 year period. This book has also given me comfort in that I now know out souls never really die and that I will again see my loved ones who have passed from this world. I highly re Reading this book was a life changing experience for me.
I highly recommend it to anyone with an open mind and soul. Shelves: reincarnation. Ok, I'm comin' out I want the world to know I'm open to the concept of reincarnation. It has been the one metaphysical, spiritual, big-unknown call it what you will that has always appealed to my imagination and also my sense of fair play.
Have we lived before? Magic 8 ball says yes. Will we live again? And will we interact with thes Ok, I'm comin' out And will we interact with these identities again and again while we are all trying to get it right? The rational part of me is sheepish. A very cursory search on the author ok, it was one Wikipedia search did not make reference to swindles, cons or some sort of New Age cult. Michael Newton apparently is a counselor with a doctorate and an academic background. He was a self identifying atheist. He seems to embrace science.
And he has 30 years of clinical cases where he apparently has regressed clients through hypnosis into knowledge of past lives and even a resting place between these earthly quests. The clients all report markedly similar experiences beyond physical death. This book concentrates on the reported experiences in a separate plane of consciousness where souls go to recover from their most recent incarnation and to study the lessons learned, the missteps taken and the overall purpose of that life.
In this plane, individual souls are reunited with their core group of fellows, where these "soul groups" study together, support one another and prepare for the next go round. The format in Journey of Souls is a very basic recount of recorded hypnosis sessions. The language is not "new agey" in tone. Except for the suspension of disbelief many readers especially of Western culture and tradition will need to employ in order to open their minds to this possible explanation of "the meaning of life" --I do not believe that the style of the book will be off putting.
The cover is stereotypically New Age. But don't let the chakra-and-crystals vibe dissuade you from a book that makes for an amazing way to look at existence Who am I? And, what am I doing here, now? Think about it. That is just about the crux of a life. Journey of Souls prompts many constructive and comforting ideas to help unlock the answers to those questions.
Nov 22, Markham Anderson rated it did not like it. First you have to get past the past life regression hypnotism. After that hard pill to swallow Newton advances a premise that the purpose of life relies upon our ignorance of life outside of this mortal period, but this is quite at odds with his efforts to expose what life outside of mortality is like.
What sits particularly ill, though, is the observation that one can really only know about these things through the medium of a hypnotist. Even if you believe in hypnotism, isn't this something w First you have to get past the past life regression hypnotism. Even if you believe in hypnotism, isn't this something we already saw and disliked in the Catholic Church, the attitude that one can only reach God through the medium of a priest? It's a shame to have to rely on an intermediary who is just as corrupt and incompetent as the human race generally.
Outside of what a hypnotist may tell you about this subject, there is paltry evidence for anything that Newton promulgates. That evidence amounts to flashes of inspiration, such as, "Go marry that woman," and unfortunately for Newton, this brand of evidence integrates equally as well or better into myriad religions and fringe theories.
Bottom line: Newton's theories are untenable and unsupported. May 22, My Pseudonym rated it it was amazing.

Like most hypnotherapists I have come across, they tend to all start-off with a relatively traditional mindset and then something happens that causes a revolution in their thinking. This book is a fast paced book that you won't be able to put down until it's finished. Dr Newton includes transcriptions from 29 case studies that are all unique in their own way; however, there are striking similarities in all these cases that will make even the skeptic think twice.
Personally, I'm a believer, and I wouldn't discourage anybody from exploring this book for answers pertaining to their true spiritual self, and the afterlife that awaits us all between lives. Oct 11, Yvonne rated it liked it Recommended to Yvonne by: Bonnie. Newton reports conversations with patient under hypnosis who have been regressed past the birth of this lifetime. It is very thrilling to conceive of a community, a continuing learning, a teaching about what this lifetime is about. It is thrilling to think that there is evidence at last that life doesn't end, or at least doesn't end with death as it appears to us.
Just think of it! Can we believe this? Who is this guy? What is the evidence, where Dr. What is the evidence, where is the science Are these reported cases evidence of life after death? Newton has written, exaggerations at best, downright fabrications at worst. And I found many who rejoice, rejoice to read these studies.

My ex husband of 12 years passed away this month, after a few short months of battling cancer. He was 36, and although we divorced a couple years ago, we were still very much good friends. This event made me reflect on what I really believe when it comes to death, and where he might be now. This book is incredibly insightful and gives you a lot to think about. It gave me a great sense of peace and removed any lingering fear I had about the process of death. While I don't think anyone knows FOR My ex husband of 12 years passed away this month, after a few short months of battling cancer.

I downloaded this book because I wanted another point of view on the 'afterlife'. What I got was a whole lot more than I bargained for. First of all, it's a very dry book, full of case studies so I had a hard time staying focused on it.
However, I came to like it in the end, and some of the answers it gives us. But it's 'big picture' is a lot bigger than I am prepared to accept.

Found this in a used book store - was curious about the subject. Kept it on my nightstand to read but other books kept taking it's place. For me, it was best to read in short bursts.
