A doctor of psychological counseling who used past life regression as a therapeutic tool, Dr. Newton stumbled onto something he never expected, a discovery that rain against the grain of his beliefs.
Past life regression makes assumptions about reincarnation as clients are hypnotized and coaxed backward to explore lost sources for present issues. The practice shares assumptions with ancient theories of reincarnation, but what Dr. Newton found went farther.
Before, time between individual incarnations was thought of as a gray, unimportant place where souls were in a kind of holding pattern. That assumption was blown apart one afternoon in 1971.
On the day that changed everything, Dr. Newton regressed a woman who was suffering from unshakeable feelings of sadness over missing friends. He took her back through incarnations, looking for events that might explain her exceptional distress.
Nothing seemed to come, until suddenly, the woman brightened, telling him she was now surrounded by embracing friends and family. When trying to pin down what incarnation she was in, Dr Newton was told something astonishing - she was actually hovering between incarnations, welcomed into her soul family in a rich universe of life between lives.
This discovered universe of ineffable experiences can be better explained as the core of our many existences. Thousands more regressions, recorded by Dr. Newton and colleagues, into the deepest realms of our lives confirmed it. The stories told are complex and rich in detail.
Dr. Newtons's forty years and thousands of "life between lives" sessions leave little doubt that a richer, eternal fabric connects us with all there is through millennia. It gives us much to wonder about.
