Sex, religion & politics

(the 3 things you’re not supposed to talk about)

But I just read a book that blew my mind: Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.

If you’re open to reincarnation (that’s right, I said it) or if you just like learning about lots of different ideals and ways of life and philosophies (like me!) you should read this book… What stood out are the messages coming from “the masters” of loving-kindness, balance and karma. (Call it what you’d like. The book calls it “paying debts.”)

Many Lives essentially told me to be compassionate and to meditate. (Which The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali also advises.) Hmmm. Something to think, and talk, about.


P.S. I’ve been asked to elaborate on the storyline of Many Lives, and I’d be happy to!

In a nutshell:
Dr. Brian Weiss was an established and prominent psychiatrist living and practicing in Miami, Florida after graduating from Columbia University and Yale Medical School (NBD). He had been using “traditional” techniques on his patients, such as psychotherapy and occasionally prescribing medicine. He considered himself a true scientist. Then Catherine came to see him. She was extremely anxious, had many phobias and was prone to panic attacks. After 18 months of using conventional means of therapy on Catherine, Weiss still couldn’t help her to overcome her symptoms. In a last-ditch effort to help Catherine, Weiss tried hypnosis. “Hypnosis is an excellent tool to help a patient remember long-forgotten incidents,” Weiss said. He expected Catherine to bring up memories from her childhood, which she did. She also relayed information from many other lifetimes and from “master spirits.” And she wasn’t lying. She was able to give Dr. Weiss information from his late father and deceased baby son, information she was not privy to outside of hypnosis. And throughout her hypnosis sessions, Catherine was healed of her own issues. It was really a win-win situation; it just required a change of approach and a revolutionized way of thinking… 

P.P.S This is me in a nutshell!
