Pioneers in Reincarnation Research

“If you don’t believe in Karma or reincarnation, don’t worry, probably you will in your next life.”

- Dr. Bruce Goldberg

There has been an enormous amount of research done during recent times in the field of Past-Life-Regression. Modern Medical Science has documented it meticulously and the in-depth studies have shown that 90% of illnesses, diseases and ailments that we suffer from in our present lives – all have past life connections. The therapeutic benefits of Past-Life-Regression can therefore be accepted as a universal fact. Let us take a look at some of the important researchers in this field.

Father of modern
Past-Life-Regression

The contribution of Dr. Brian Weiss to the field of Past-Life-Regression is unparalleled in modern times and he can rightly be called as the ‘Father of modern Past-Life-Regression’. A Columbia and Yale trained M.D. Psychiatrist Dr. Weiss, proved reincarnation with his excellent research on past-life regressions. In the process of treating one of his patients named Catherine using conventional psychotherapy, Dr. Weiss rediscovered past-life-regression. Though he was initially skeptical, he continued to use past-life-regression in her treatment and the results were miraculous. During one of the sessions, his patient reached a between lives state and communicated with the departed souls of Weiss’s father and son and relayed secret information about Weiss’s family. As a result, his skepticism turned into solid belief.

He published his experiences in great detail in his first and epoch making book ‘Many Lives, Many Masters’. After the stupendous success of his first book, he wrote some more masterpieces like ‘Messages from Masters’, ‘Through Time into Healing, ‘Only Love is Real’ and ‘Same Soul, Many Bodies’.

Past life therapist
Book Author

One of the pioneers of past-life-regression, his book ‘Past Lives Therapy’ is one of the earliest books on the subject.

Dr. Netherton is recognized as the first therapist to treat the soul by regressing clients to their past lives. After his groundbreaking text, Past Lives Therapy (William Morrow, 1978) was exposed to the public on a major media blitz and the term ‘past life’ became a buzzword in the parlance of millions all over the world.

Now, Strangers In The Land Of Confusion reveals deeper insights that resonate on a subconscious level. Their truthfulness has a distant familiarity that summons calm and comfort whether or not readers are believers of Past Life Therapy. The understanding of past death coding can offer the first step towards relief from confusion that results from the on-going cycle of death and rebirth.

Edgar Cayce

 

Best-known psychics of the twentieth century

Edgar Cayce was one of the best-known psychics of the twentieth century. He was one of the first to explore other dimensions of reality. From 1925 through 1944, he conducted some 2500 readings. He would go into a hypnotic trance state and describe the past lives of individuals as casually as if everybody understood and accepted that reincarnation was a fact. Mr. Cayce was brought up in a fundamentalist Christian family and initially, he himself had a hard time accepting what he was saying during these trance states. Later, as he came to trust in the accuracy of the readings, he gradually understood the basis of reincarnation and karma and how they help us comprehend the seemingly incomprehensible aspects of human life. The essence of this understanding gained by him can be found in his work entitled "Scars of the Soul". In "Born Again and Again" Cayce deals with topics such as deep-seated fears, physical ailments, mental blocks, vocational talents, innate urges and abilities, marriage difficulties, child training, etc. These were examined in the light of what Cayce called the "karmic patterns" resulting from previous incarnations that an individual has had on the earth plane.

There are many other researchers/therapists in the field of Past-Life-Regression like Dick Sutphen, Hans Tendam etc. to name a few. There are innumerable documented cases of past life regressions and the experiences of those undergoing the regressions. The basis of these regressions and the validity of reincarnation have been viewed by many with skepticism and hence many people have tried to prove or disprove the validity of these experiences. The biggest doubt expressed by skeptics was whether the information was really coming from the past-life experiences of the individuals or from their present knowledge. They also felt that that there is every possibility of the person imagining or making it all up.

As far as we are concerned, these are immaterial concerns. What is important to us, as Medical Doctors, is that these regressions are capable of healing patients’ emotional, mental and physical problems. In addition to this, the regressions bring about profound spiritual transformation in the individuals and improve the overall quality of their lives. We therefore make no judgments about the process of past life regression and we do not attempt to prove the accuracy or reality of these past life recollections. It is enough for us to know that this is a good, effective and extremely safe way to help and heal the patients. The proof of the pudding is in the eating and the results speak for themselves!
