FROM THE PUBLISHER
Elizabeth was a beautiful woman who began past-life regression therapy for grief and relationship problems. With the help of Dr. Weiss, she delved into former lives, began to understand her present, and surprisingly, like Catherine in Many Lives, Many Masters, made contact with the Masters: highly evolved, ancient souls who, through her, channeled profound, crystalline messages for all people about life after death, spiritual dimensions, and the purpose of our lives on earth. At the same time, Dr. Weiss was treating Pedro, a charming man also suffering from grief. He, too, underwent past-life regression therapy to seek solutions and healing. Dr. Weiss had often worked with couples or families who discovered that they had known each other in previous lifetimes, with often shocking consequences. Elizabeth and Pedro, however, were present-day strangers. Yet they seemed to be describing the same past lifetimes with a stunning similarity of detail and emotion...

10 out of 10

This book was everything I had hoped it would be! I enjoyed the quotes and poems pertaining to past lives that were at the beginning of each chapter. I loved this book & was actually kind of sad when I finished it. I plan to start a bookring with this copy, since I know there are many other people out there who would love to read it.

I finished my other book and then picked this one up. I didn't put it down (except to cook dinner) until I was finished; I was riveted. The writing is somewhat choppy in places but the content is clear and concise. Dr. Weiss expounds on the message of love throughout this book. Reading this book with a very open mind is a requisite. Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking book with me time-traveler.

As soon as I get the address Kislany, I will send it on it's way. I will be sure to edit this message to confirm shipment and change the status of the book to 'traveling.'

I got it, I got it, yeppee! Arrived today. I am finishing soon another book and then this'll be next. I have read another one by Brian Weiss, and although there the writing was sort of choppy as well, the book was great. And it's a definitive plus that I love the past lives subject :)

Great book, couldn't put it down. Also the fact that it's less than 200 pages helped in finishing it quickly.
It's very similar to his first book, except that the major theme here is love, lost and found soulmates.
Will be sending later in thne week to lakelady2282, I already have her address.
Thanks time-traveller for thinking about me when starting the ring.

This was an interesting book and easy to read, however I really would have liked more about the actual past lives. I find this a fascinating subject and would have happily read about more regressions. Will definitely be looking out for his other titles. Thanks time-traveler!

The book arrived today. Thanks so much. I am really looking forward to reading this one. I have less than 2 weeks left of school and have just started another bookring book, as well. But once school is done, I expect to be able to catch up quickly and get both finished in short order!

Counting the minutes! :-)

This was a quick read although I did have to stop a few times, to reflect and think about some of what I was reading. Past lives and the entire concept of soulmates, has always been a source of fascination for me. On some level, I do believe both are possible and true. I want to believe that it is. But I continue to find myself uncomfortable with the tie-ins and the continual references to God.

I went through a long period of time in my life when I tried very hard to believe in God but it never felt like a good fit, for me, and in the end, I have come to the realization that I am no better or worse, no greater or lesser of a person, for not believing in what others do, or in the way that others do. I continue to try to be a good person, every day; kind and loyal, thoughtful and loving. I am comfortable with this and at peace with this realization, even though it took me quite a while to get to it. I think I have always marched to a different drummer, anyhow.

I do often wonder, though, about where I am in my life, how I got to this point and why I haven't found my soulmate. I have always felt that he was out there but the older I get, the more I realize that this may not be so. This book has given me as many questions as it has offered answers. I've learned from Dr. Weiss's story that there is a lesson to be learned in everything but that we need to be ready and open, in order to learn. In some parts of this book, I recognize myself, almost as if he were addressing me, personally:

..."Life is like that. If you are not fully in the present, you will look around and it will be gone. You will have missed the feel, the aroma, the delicacy and the beauty of life. It will seem to be speeding past you."

..."The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment. Then you will begin to experience joy in life."

..."When you are loving and unafraid, you can forgive. You can forgive others, and you can forgive yourself. You begin to see with the proper perspective. Guilt and anger are reflections of the same fear. Guilt is a subtle anger directed inward. Forgiveness dissolves guilt and anger. They are unnecessary, damaging emotions. Forgive. This is an act of love."

..."They meant well but they did not understand. They were ignorant...but I have been ignorant, also. I have comandeered the lives of others. So how can I judge them or be angry with them when I have done the same?"


Yes, these quotes definitely have my name all over them! Powerful and important concepts, but, for me, anyhow, much easier said than done, in reality.

Weiss also talks of *soul recognition*. How a kind-of *knowing* can occur:
"Sometimes soul recognition may originate in the mind and may occur even before the heart sees."


Maybe this is what we all wait for, look for...


I don't think, personally, that I could ever let go enough to be hypnotized. I wish I could but I just don't think I could. I wonder, though, do we all have past lives? Or could it be possible that, for some of us, this life is the first of future lives?


Thanks so much for including me in this bookring, time-traveler. I have PM'd the next person and am awaiting a mailing address.

By the way, lakelady, did you catch his reference to the Jenny Cockell story?! ;-) I love that I knew it and had already read and devoured it!

WOW! What an incredible book. I started it last night and could barely put it down! I feel inspired by the author and must read more of his books! I now want to reevaluate my relationships with friends/family and focus on the lessons to learn. I've always had a difficult relationship with my mother and feel inspired to put the anger aside and begin to forgive. Thank you so much for sharing this book!

I've sent a PM to ppagano.

This book is just Wonderful! It came at a really good time and reminds me of what is important in life.

RuthDiane has stated that she cannot participate in the Ring at this time but would like to read in the future.

I will allow my daughter to read before sending back home.

Thank you sooo much for including me in this ring.
