Off the Shelf: Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss
Posted Mar 02 2009 12:00am
Reading brings me great joy and is one of my favorite things to do. Every Thursday I will tell you about a book from my library.
To say that is a fascinating book is an understatement. I highly recommend reading it in the very near future. Have you ever heard the quote “we are spiritual beings having a human experience?” This book takes that to a whole new level!
Dr. Brian Weiss is a prominent psychiatrist, who meets a young woman named Catherine. After over a year of therapy, Catherine is not making progress, and is still experiencing debilitating depression, anxiety, phobias and panic attacks. He hypnotizes her, in an attempt to go back in her memory to determine when these symptoms first appeared. Rather than Catherine going back in her own lifetime, she regresses hundreds of years to a past life, and in subsequent appointments, she regresses further to other past lives. Eventually, the root cause of Catherine’s ailments are uncovered and treated, which leads Dr. Weiss to the belief that past-life therapy is a legitimate method for treating his patients. He shares what he learned from Catherine, and the stories of her past lives as well as those belonging to other patients like her, in this book. The main theme he uncovers in past-life therapy is that the soul is re-born many times into the human form, each time to learn lessons which help it progress along the levels and planes in the spirit world. He also shares that sometimes we carry fears, anger, or sadness from past lives into our current human experience, in order to finish learning a specific lesson necessary for the growth and progression of our soul.
After reading , I felt transformed. The book really made me feel empowered and inspired to learn and live and grow to the max each and every day of my life because I really want to accomplish the lessons my soul has been sent here to learn in this lifetime. I want my life to count. I want my experience to contribute to the greater development of my soul! Feeling this way has made it easier for me to tackle fears and overcome obstacles. It has given me strength. I hope you will read the book and experience its richness, too.
