Michael Newton,
Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives
(Llewellyn, 1994)

Have you ever wondered what really happens after we die? Is there truly an afterlife? Is there such a thing as reincarnation? This fascinating book by Michael Newton investigates these questions and more. Using hypnosis to bring his subjects into a super-conscious state, he regresses them to a time before their present lives, a time when they were in spirit form.

Made possible by these numerous hypnosis/regression sessions Newton has recorded over his many years of experience as a therapist, we are able to glimpse the world beyond the veil of death, an orderly world where we all exist eternally, without physical bodies, and with complete and absolute acceptance of and love for ourselves and each other. We are able to glimpse what happens "between lives."

These subjects are able to describe in detail what the experience of both death and life after death are like. We come from a spirit plane to which we return after death. When we return, we are greeted with love by the members of our "soul group," "clusters" of souls who spend eternity together, learning with and supporting each other both in the spirit world and on Earth. Have you ever met someone you're immediately comfortable with, someone who seems familiar in some way? He or she is probably a kindred soul, an individual from your soul group who has come to Earth with you so you may both bring about growth for your souls on "Earth school."

Earth is a place of opposites and extremes, where beings of love come to experience conflicting sensations and emotions. The dark/light, hate/love, pain/joy, loss/victory of the Earth plane give our souls a vehicle for experiencing opposites, which in turn gives us a greater appreciation of the absolute joy and love of the plane we come from. The light of the candle cannot know itself without the darkness to surround it.

Of course, it would be impossible to definitively verify the subjects' encounters with the spirit world, but these cases demonstrate a consistency from person to person that speaks to the validity of their experiences. These subjects describe an orderly world overseen by a loving "over-soul," whom we are always aspiring to rejoin. This book will provide hope for the afterlife and establish a whole new way of looking at death, a way without fear or worry. With this knowledge, it is possible to alleviate some of the fear, fear of the unknown and fear of retribution, that some have about death. Made obvious is the fact that after this present journey, we will return to a world of love.
