Memories of the Afterlife is the fourth book to focus on Dr. Michael Newton’s work in Life Between Lives (LBL) hypnotic regression and it is one with a very different style from its predecessors. While Dr. Newton is the editor, there are thirty-two individual authors who are certified Life Between Lives hypnotherapists from The Newton Institute, trained in Dr. Newton’s methodology, each of whom has selected an actual case history from their files. Each case in Memories of the Afterlife represents one chapter in the book.
Dr. Newton’s first three books described his own research into the spirit world involving the spiritual journeys of thousands of clients over many years. They have sold over a million copies. His goal was to give the public an understanding of the afterlife in great detail. His mission in providing a model of the spirit world was to empower people from all walks of life, whatever their spirit persuasion, by this knowledge and this is the mission of the institute he founded. The great strength of his work is the discovery that all sacred spiritual information exists in the mind of every person and when accessed will bring both purpose and peace to people struggling to make their place on this difficult planet.
Memories of the Afterlife is a fascinating study of thirty-two ordinary people seeking a personalized spiritual experience of their own without religious intermediaries. As the chapters unfold and each individual story develops, readers are drawn into a broad spectrum of the lives, experiences and emotions of each client. The cases begin by summarizing the client’s reasons for seeking spiritual regression. Readers are clearly shown how personal issues can be uncovered and resolved through the Life Between Lives process.
What is especially unique about Memories of the Afterlife is that the detail of each afterlife experience is described in its various stages in a condensed, rapidly flowing fashion. Why seek Life Between Lives in the first place? What happened during the session with key information learned about the individual regarding their soul? What questions were asked and which issues were highlighted in the case? And, most particularly, how has each session answered troubling questions and transformed the life of the client? The major objective of Memories of the Afterlife was to expose the specific benefits derived by each client after uncovering their deep-seated soul memories. Spiritual regression can lead to illumination of one’s soul and thus foster healing of current life issues The phenomenal sales of Memories of the Afterlife in just a short time has already demonstrated the book has successfully achieved intended goals.
In 2002, Dr. Newton founded the first international organization committed primarily to Life Between Lives hypnotherapy and served as the first President. The Newton Institute is dedicated to raising questions about the spirit world and in particular training highly qualified hypnotherapist to facilitate the demanding between lives work necessary. After our authors and their cases were selected for Memories of the Afterlife, Dr. Newton wrote the Introduction to the book in order to assist readers in understanding the universal background of the cases presented.
Each of the thirty-two cases has the written permission of the clients concerned. In concert with his authors and two regional editors, Dr. Newton has edited every chapter in order to create a uniform style that is clear, information-rich and enjoyable to read. For those readers who wish to cross reference this book on any particular subject with his other books, Dr. Newton has also added detailed footnotes at the end of each case that expand upon the concepts being discussed.
The result is a fascinating and enthralling book, which reveals with clarity LBL’s potential for personal transformation. It is written in a style that is equally accessible to other hypnosis practitioners and those who are hungry to discover their own personal soul identity.
