The best books on past life regression

Why am I passionate about this?

I had an early experience with a past life regression. Over the years, my curiosity resulted in a search to find answers about this experience. So, I have read and studied extensively about the topic and the issue. For me, the culminating experience was the seminar with Dr. Brian Weiss at the Omni Center. The program was designed for therapists and highlighted techniques in past life regression, specifically for healing purposes. My time with Dr. Weiss convinced me that this is a very critical topic that most people are not only curious about but actively searching for answers.

Past Lives Denied

By Ellenmorris Tiegerman,

Book cover of Past Lives Denied

What is my book about?

This book is part I of a trilogy that explores past life regression through the fictional lives of three characters: mother (I), father (II), and daughter (III).

The main character in the first installment is Professor Caitlyn Morrys, an outspoken and passionate teacher at a small college who finds herself at the center of a political fight over academic freedom and teacher tenure. Behind the scenes, a right-wing group has infiltrated the university in a covert attempt to bust the teachers’ union and the tenure system. When the school President, Caitlyn’s chief antagonist, is found stabbed to death in his office. The finger-pointing begins, with no shortage of possible suspects.

The books I picked & why

Book cover of Through Time into Healing: Discovering the Power of Regression Therapy to Erase Trauma and Transform Mind, Body and Relationships

Ellenmorris Tiegerman Why did I love this book?

What is most extraordinary about this book is Dr. Weiss’s description of how past life regression can heal the traumas that we face in our present lives. The search and process of reviewing a past life can uncover ways to deal with present-day problems that can be resolved in real-time. Understanding dynamics in a past life can have practical implications for dealing with present-day problems, a wonderfully real, practical solution to the therapeutic healing process.  

I had the extraordinary opportunity to meet personally with Dr. Brian Weiss at a training seminar at the Omni Center several years ago. The therapeutic advice and past-life regressions that I observed convinced me that my own personal experience as a teenager was real and worthy of narrative. The result was a storyline for my present book. Working with Dr. Weiss at this seminar was transformational in terms of my own research and work as an author.

Ellenmorris Tiegerman Why did I love this book?

This is a “how-to” guidebook on self-exploration and self-discovery, with steps for searching for a past life.

I found the methodology and approach easy to follow, and I recommend it highly for newcomers to past life regression. The search for a past life can be a daunting process even for the truly determined. The author provides a protocol that can be followed step by step calling on spiritual guides to assist the seeker during the exploration process. The outreach to the spiritual highlights that we are not alone and we are surrounded by healing light and guides.
