Wonderful Book! Well Worth the Read!

I read this book when it first came out, long before I knew where my life would take me. I'd had a Near Death Experience at 19, (which I kept to myself) and I'd always had "inklings" of a direct past life as a doctor. But like many people, it wasn't something I though...
I read this book when it first came out, long before I knew where my life would take me. I'd had a Near Death Experience at 19, (which I kept to myself) and I'd always had "inklings" of a direct past life as a doctor. But like many people, it wasn't something I thought much about. It wasn't until my husband died in my arms and "came back" to me that I re-read Brian's wonderfully helpful book, and it allowed me makes sense of what was happening to me. Because I'm a hypnotherapist, I took his professional training, and have done so many past life regressions over the past four years, that it seems strange that anyone could doubt the validity of this kind of therapy. But I realize that's my own specific "perception." If you, too, are a therapist or just interested in this work, you might want to take his week-long training. Brian is charming, funny, accessible and both he and his wife Carole teach with kindness. I recommend "Many Masters, Many Lives," to all my clients, because it helps to ground them in the multi-dimensional nature of their souls, and I recommend it to you, too!

If you know nothing about past life regression, reincarnation, etc, then this is a good place to start. Dr. Weiss spends a great deal of time explaining (over and over again) that he is a scientist and wants PROOF. He shows that he gets the proof that he is looking for and is surprised by this. However, if you already know anything about past lives, then this book will be a tad unilluminating. I felt the Dr. Weiss spent too much time trying to protect his career instead of giving the message that the 'masters' sent to him. I suppose that is understandable, but it was easy to skip several pages in each chapter that were devoted to this topic. Overall, a good book to start with - an easy introduction to past life regression.

    Spirituality

    I read the book and thought that it was an affirmation of the original 'THE BIBLE'. Please people instead of looking for 'spirituality' in the hope that you will return to the earth, believe in the everlasting life that God has already prepared. I strongly suggest that you read the gospel and compare it to Dr. Weiss's book you will find MANY PROPHETS, MANY SIMILARITIES. God Bless.

    .

    Reincarnation does not exist and this book is a hoax. All the reported reincarnation events are about persons claiming to recall events in past lives. This is natural, since how else could one prove that one has the soul of somebody else? Now, these stories assume something that we know for a fact not to be true: they assume that the memories are in the soul and not in the body (how else would the reincarnation of the soul cause the new person know about the old one?). How do we know this is wrong? Simple! We know that we can lose our memory or parts of it through an injury or malfunction of our brain. This is a common phenomenon we encounter in car accidents. This is also the basis for some diseases like Alzheimer. Now, in all these cases, it is only our brain that is damaged. We don¿t lose our soul. If the memories were part of the soul, we would not have lost them! Hence, the memories are not in the soul and all the stories of recollection of events in past lives cannot be true. To me, the reincarnation of a soul with no memory is as meaningless as the reincarnation of some of the atoms composing my body in the body of the worms that eat it. After all, what are we but our memories? What is it that makes us ¿us¿? I knew all that before I started reading the book but a friend urged me to read the book in spite of my understanding. He kept saying this book talks about facts, which I should not keep ignoring. So I started reading this book. I almost stopped when, on page eleven I found the sentence ¿I have slightly changed Catherine¿s identity to ensure confidentiality¿ since through this sentence the book declared itself unscientific, providing me with no means to check whether or not the facts my friend was talking about were, indeed, facts. Still, I decided to continue and see if I can find something I could relate to. On page 27, the author describes his first encounter with a previous life cycle Catherine was able to recall under hypnosis. I¿ll cite only a few sentences from her testimony: ¿We live in the Valley¿. There is no water. The year is 1863 B.C.¿ Now, we all know that people in this time could not use the term B.C. to designate dates! How could she know then that in exactly 1863 years, Jesus will be born? Even if she really wanted to translate some other date representation to the terms we use today, how could she do it? No way! I only had to read 27 pages to find a statement that, logically, cannot be true. There are many such statements in the sequel. In short, not only is reincarnation impossible, this book unmasks itself as a hoax through additional inconsistencies. It was, hence, my friend who was ignoring the facts. Don¿t waste your only incarnation on this book.
