Are you sure that the human world is the terminal point in the evolution Of the cosmos? Is it not conceivable that there is still another dimension, A world beyond man's world; a world in which the question of an ultimate Meaning of human suffering would find an answer?

The last week in October of 2004 I drove down to Virginia Beach, to the Association for Research in Enlightenment (A.R.E.) Edgar Cayce's foundation, to learn this very specific regression technique based on the work of Dr. Michael Newton in his books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls. I will try to explain what Dr. Newton examines in his books and what I learned during the training program, but I strongly suggest you read his books for yourself.
We are all spiritual beings on a physical path. If you have thought about or wondered where we are when we are not in this body on this planet, living this life, perhaps these books might be worth reading! Life between lives is a way of exploring the realms of the spirit, our true selves, and the path we created for ourselves to walk on this earth plane. According to Dr. Newton it offers a potential for exploration of the Soul mind, where we contact and communicate with our spirit guides, our soul groups, meet our council of elders, and find out about life selection and the purpose of our current life. In a very deep trance state we move into the Superconscious mind, where we travel on an amazing journey of self exploration, inner knowledge and wisdom. Dr. Newton wrote the first book, Journey of Souls, in 1994, based on his work taking regression clients beyond the concept of past lives to the realm of Spirit. Once you have gone through this process you are more likely to call it Home. That is what it feels like while you are there, and that is how you remember it when you return to your physical body. The first book examines the basic process, defines the kinds of experiences one encounters and how it can bring powerful healing and enlightenment to the clients. His next book, Destiny of Souls came out in 2000. In that book he further examines the different places we experience in the realm of spirit, in greater depth and detail, places such as Healing Rooms, reconnecting with our soul groups, Life review, Council of Elders, and Life Selection. I first encountered Dr. Newton's work in 2002 and I instantly knew I had to have that experience, both as a client and as a facilitator! It is fascinating stuff and I wanted very much to learn more about it.
In his books Dr. Newton explains that when we are born we combine our Soul energy and consciousness with the physical body that is to be our host body for that lifetime. The Soul character is heavily influenced by the mental processes, emotional temperament, and biological systems of the body and the brain. The character of the immortal soul and temperament of the body and brain create the personality after birth. The motivations, fears, self-image and goals of an individual's conscious mind are greatly influenced by the physical, emotional, and mental make-up of the body in which we reside. Our insight, intuition and conscience are from the Soul Mind. And the permanent character of the Soul Mind is influenced, also, by the many karmic experiences of previous lifetimes with other bodies. He also tells us that this level of inner work enables us to see the Big Picture - it helps us to identify who we really are and thus empower ourselves. Many of Dr. Newton's clients have gone to worlds other than Earth, and even other dimensions. He tells us that while Earth-school is a powerful place to incarnate and learn important lessons, it is not the only place we choose to go nor are we the only beings that live here.
Exploring the spirit realm gives you an opportunity to see your life and yourself from a new and different perspective. It helps you review what you have done and where you have been without blame or guilt, taking responsibility for yourself because you see yourself as the being of spirit, of light and love that you are. From there you can see the patterns in the relationships, the lessons, the challenges of your life as opportunities to learn and grow, to move to higher levels of wisdom and connection. It also gives you a chance to see just how beautiful the physical world truly is, how amazing and vulnerable each one of us are, how we are all unique individuals yet deeply connected at the same time. You will find a greater sense of compassion and forgiveness for self and for others and you learn to appreciate all your mistakes and mishaps as lessons and opportunities to learn, to be humble and to show courage. Reading Dr. Newton's books gives you a sense of how rewarding it is to be human, to live upon this planet, this earth school, and how each lesson moves us forward on our own personal path.
Therapeutically, a life between lives (LBL) session brings opportunities for healing and transformation that are very real. It also brings a level of wisdom and insight that is hard to define but will stay with you the rest of your life. During these sessions individuals will gain insight regarding mistakes and successes from the past that can be integrated into their current life. When self-destructive patterns are approached within the context of higher wisdom and insight the Soul mind can over-ride the fears and issues of the ego mind and the attitudes that are harmful and destructive and realize the lessons and purpose of each choice that was made. Primarily, this kind of work enables an individual to recognize their true identity. When a client can relate their past lives to their life between lives and to their current life, this gives the Soul identity with the body and a new found sense of purpose.
I have worked with several clients since that week in October, and some have gone by the book, including one who hadn't yet read the books, and then there are others who take off and go into other dimensions, other realms. We are human and we are spirit and we are powerful and we are meant to live in light and joy! This is our birthright and our gift to us and to each other. The world of Spirit, the Spirit Realm is our home. It is a world with incredible order and purpose. Everything happens for a reason and in its own good time and there are lessons in everything we experience here in earth-school. We are immortal beings and this kind of work helps bring harmony and balance into our current lives.
