Life Between Lives – How Learning about our Soul’s Journey is Healing

This is part three of a three part series.  If you have not yet, please read the first two parts; “Life After Death” and “Past Lives, What Do They Have to Do With Healing?“.

Learning about life between lives changed my life and how I see every day.  Yes, we are SO MUCH more than our physical bodies and than we ever were told we were.  Our souls live on and what a truly amazing journey it is. There are pioneers in this field such as Dr. Michael Newton and Dr. Brian Weiss that truly made me see life differently.  Reliving my life between lives through hypnotherapy was more powerful than I ever imagined.  Learning about past lives and life between lives led to my becoming an Akashic Record Reading (Soul Realignment) Practitioner which has opened up my eyes even more.  I would like to share with you a few resources I have found incredible for learning about life between lives, my personal experience and tell you how learning about life between lives can be very healing.

Quote from Mike Dooley, Notes from The Universe:

It’s pretty much always been the same: First there’s the life review, then there’s the homecoming parties and happy tears flowing like Niagara Falls, and finally… the sudden and profound realization that throughout their entire life all things were, indeed, possible, and that such a concept wasn’t just wishful, part-time, feel-good thinking.
It’s quite the “Kodak Moment.”  Whoops, here comes another one. Tissues everyone!

The Universe


Dannion Brinkley has had 3 Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) and since been gifted with psychic sight.  He tours worldwide speaking about his experience and teaching.

The observations Dannion recalls in this amazing interview are also the same experiences shared by many who have had near death experiences. They correlate with the vast experiences documented by Hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton and Physicist Dr. Brian Weiss and many others who study this subject.  I do not believe thousands of people who have never met would make up the same thing. Most who have never even have heard of near death experiences or ANYTHING about life between lives. With all I have studied over the last three years, I am someone who does not really believe in coincidences anymore.

In writing my last post I was drawn to Andrea Hess’s course in Soul ReAlignment and am now happy to report I am a practitioner.  In part 2 of this series, I talk about having my report and clearing done by Akemi Gaines of Real Life Spirituality. The Akashic Records (kept in the Hall of Knowledge) are referenced in many Near Death Experiences and in Dr. Weiss and Dr. Newton’s books.  Diane Goble also shares her remarkable story of the Hall of Knowledge and her NDE on her website. I have to access the Hall of Knowledge to get the information on soul’s records when doing an Akashic Reading. Even though I knew it was real before I began doing this work — the results I encountered giving my clients their reports confirms without a shadow of a doubt this is real and there is vast information available there about our soul’s journey.

Some of the commonalities between studies and NDE’s are meeting a guide of sorts and being guided toward a brilliantly beautiful place.  Many report seeing people that have passed over as well as people you KNOW but were not in this past lifetime with you.  Many mention the life review – seeing the choices you made and that life indeed was in your control the whole time.  This is never done as a judgment although many people who have come back remember judging THEMSELVES in that moment.  The beings we encounter there emit love and acceptance and it is not THEM who are judging us.

Another commonality in experiences is the talk of just how beautiful it all is and how much love is felt… more love than can be quantified here. This is what I felt in my life between lives hypnotherapy session.  My good friend Amy Park is a gifted hypnotherapist and led me first through the death of my last incarnation starting a few minutes before I passed and what happened when I passed. I had lived a long life and was very at peace at the end of my last incarnation.  I was in a “deathbed setting” surrounded by loved ones who knew I did not have long left. At the moment of passing I remember feeling a huge sense of remembering and love almost simultaneously.  As I traveled through light I was aware of this love feeling growing and a deep sense of peace.  When I arrived I saw many familiar faces although not from my current lifetime.  They were light beings – almost surrounded by a soft glow and not as solid as we appear here. I saw familiar “guides” that I have seen through other hypnosis sessions. I was greeted by many smiles and a number of them began talking to me immediately – although their lips were not moving I could clearly hear them.  I felt love, approval, welcome and a feeling of belonging that seemed more than human.  I got this overwhelming sense “YOU ARE LOVED” and felt it deep in my being even as I was telling Amy verbally what was going on.  We stayed here and explored a bit more gathering some information. I remember when she said it was time to come out me not wanting to go and filling with tears at the thought of leaving.  “But life is so beautiful and so much easier here”, I thought.  Quickly it was answered by “but you ALWAYS have that love and there is work to be done in this lifetime”.

I will admit the next few days were kind of rough for me.  I WANTED that constant feeling of love and belonging back and had sadness of how hard we make it here.  I kind of had this sense of being watched with an odd amusement, “Silly Humans” were the words that kept running through my head. But I felt those words with LOVE and that was the kicker – it was almost like I could STILL feel that strong love accessed during the session as I heard those words.  WE CHOOSE to incarnate here.  We have picked life lessons we need to work on.  We CHOOSE our parents — another precious moment in my hypnotherapy life between lives session was learning WHY I chose my parents…. priceless!  Yes, life between lives is beautiful but so is life here when we remember how to see it that way.



Learning about life between lives has brought me a deep sense of peace and love. If I had ever feared death, I certainly would not now.  I have had people ask me, “If it’s so beautiful there, what’s to stop us from offing ourselves?”  Well, there are a number of reasons why.  Firstly as I stated, we CHOSE to incarnate here.  There are many lessons to be learned and gifts to give and receive in this dimension. There is a beauty and REALNESS to this third dimensional life that when you tap into – you understand completely why we are here.  Secondly, life when you commit suicide is not exactly greeted with as much joy in life between lives.  We are not sent to “eternal damnation” BUT we have to deal with the knowledge there were always other options and our disappointment in ourselves.  We also have to answer to our guides and receive more training in areas before we are to incarnate again.  Dr. Newton has referenced this in his work as he had a patient who killed himself in a past life (through hypnosis) revisit what happened to him in the life between lives when he arrived – it is totally fascinating!

KNOWING when we pass on from this lifetime we will be somewhere beautiful, filled with love and meet up with loved ones is deeply healing.  Reading about the details of what happens there inspires and awes me every time.  I have studied this for much of the last six months and it is time for me to move onto studying other ways to heal but BOY did I enjoy and appreciate all my time reading about life between lives. I am also very grateful it led to me becoming a Soul Realignment Practitioner.  


Dr. Michael Newton:  I reviewed his first book “Journey of Souls in my post, “Dr. Michael Newton: A Journey of Souls“.  Since then I have read Dr. Newtons’s second book on the subject, “Destiny of Souls” which goes into even more detail of what our life between lives is like.  Dr. Newton also has many other books on the subject including, “Life Between Lives: Hypnotherapy for Spiritual Regression” which has some scripts for hypnotherapists wanting to incorporate life between life therapy into their practice.  He also is the founder of The Newton Institute for Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy where you can find many practitioners as well as training seminars.

Dr. Brian Weiss’s genius book, “Many Lives, Many Masters: A True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient and the Past-Life Therapy that Changed Both Their Lives” is easily one of the top 5 books I have EVER read.  Dr. Weiss has information on his site about where to see him speak and also about completing training with him.  Dr. Weiss also offers audio products that may enable you to experience past lives without leaving your home.  Some experience this on their first listen but for many others (Including Dr. Weiss himself) it could take months of listening before you experience one. Some of these are; “Regression Through the Mirrors of Time“, “Regression to Times and Places”  and “Spiritual Progress Through Regression Meditation“. Dr. Weiss also has a book. “Through Time Into Healing” that offers techniques on regression.

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES RESEARCH FOUNDATION:  The largest collection online of NDE’s – over 2,000 fully published text accounts.  Also has commonly asked questions answered and lots more information.  Run by Jeffrey and Jody Long.

In researching for this series what surprised me the most was just how widely accepted much of this is across religions and the medical community.  Learning about it has been fascinating and opened my mind up, given me a deeper sense of peace and exposed me to feelings of love deeper than I ever knew existed.  I hope you have enjoyed this series.  Taking Andrea’s class was a wonderful experience and doing the readings brings me a sense of awe and excitement each time.  I now will be returning to writing more frequently and look forward to interacting with you all more.  I LOVE comments and would love to know what you think about life between lives.


  1. Akemi - Yes to Me

    And congrats on becoming a SR practitioner. (Gee, I have a tough competitor now 😉 )

    I so agree about the love that is everything through life and life between lives. Everything in this life is perfectly good and beautiful. It’s only our judgments that make them not so. Negativity is an illusion of sorts.

    Thanks so much Akemi. If not for your brilliant reading I would not have continued down this road at all. So again, a HUGE THANK YOU!

    Life is beautiful and I agree it is our judgments that make it not so. It is amazing to watch the things that flow into my life when I maintain a high vibrational state of joy! NOW to get myself there more often! 😉

    Much Love Akemi, xo

  3. Suzie Cheel

    Congratulations on becoming a Soul Realignment Practitioner. I love the video you have shared by DR Weiss- that book was a real eye opener for me

    You have just reminded me that being in the high vibrational state of joy does change so many things in ones life. Reading this has me opening to more opening on this level.

    Last night I was at an evening about a spiritual tour to Egypt- the awakenings people have had through being in touch with deities etc. I think my spirit is being called to be true to me. Currently working with my intuition. I was so moved reading this Jenny, wow have you grown in the time we have been friends.

    This makes me want to know more about lives between lives, it’s no coincidence I have 3 books waiting for me to read on this topic.

    What I draw from this and my own current spiritual explorations that it is all about LOVE…….sometines accepting that is about being in that vibrationalional high

    Love and hugs

    Thanks so much. I am very honored to be doing this work and Andrea is a brilliant teacher.

    Dr. Weiss’s book IS AWESOME isn’t it? I have passed it on and bought copies for friends and family and they all wind up reading it quicker than any other book they have ever read and saying, “WOW”! 🙂

    Thank you for noticing my growth Suzie… I feel it and I can certainly say the same about you. A spiritual tour of Egypt does sound empowering and beautiful and who knows maybe some day you and I will do the same! I know I have incarnated there before so I do have a curiosity about it. 🙂 And I have so much more growth to go!!!

    Yes, our spirit does always call us to be true to ourselves but the question is are we listening? Do we know what that means? It is all about love and joy and yet that seems to negate all we’ve learned here – “hard work and nose to the grind stone brings wealth”, right? 😉 Nope, it is truly that alignment and it is something I always have to remind myself of even though I have witnessed it often.

    A small example… one day this week I worked but then took time to do things that bring me utter joy…meditation, time with friends, dance practice… that day I felt like I was vibrating joy and love all day and wound up getting unexpected checks AND new clients. Then there is a day like yesterday – yeah, I did a lot of work but I DID NOT take time for myself – I encountered computer problem after problem and bills galore. I never really GOT that we create our reality but oh I do now… now it is finding more and more ways to stay in that high vibrational state so everything flows.. the kicker – I got more “work” done the day I did all those extra things for myself than I did when I was pushing so hard for me to finish stuff… ahhh good thing we get to do this life thing more than once to learn all this stuff! 🙂

    Thanks so much for the comment Suzie. Enjoy those books! 🙂

    Jennie – this series is a masterpiece. I think you should sell it as an E book.

    People will pay for great information like this.

    Thanks for including my interview with Dannion. Whatta guy! Not your usual spiritual type as he was originally a paid mercenary for many countries. Makes him more cre3dible I think.

    You do such profound work. A great contribution to to the planet.

    Hi Andrea,

    BLUSH – thank you! It was an honor to learn (and continue) learning from you. I know YOU KNEW I was ready and this work would resonate but I had my doubts of my own abilities and really took it because I knew it would help me develop my intuitive abilities. I did not imagine loving it like I do and resonating so deeply with it. Giving the readings to my practice clients and now my first few PAYING clients has been a joy beyond words. 🙂 I love being in awe of what I am doing… pretty awesome way to feel. Thanks you for being such a wonderful teacher and continued inspiration to me.

    Lotsa Love, xo

    Hi Corinne,

    Wow – another blush!! Thank you so much for your kind words. You know what is funny Corinne – when I began the series I did think “hmm maybe at the end I can bundle it and sell it as an ebook” and with everything going on it had COMPLETELY slipped my mind. I was honestly relieved to get the last part up since my focus has been on taking the Soul Realignment class and on a bunch of other stuff going on in my life. I WILL take your advice and do just that! Boy did I need that reminder!

    I thought your interview with Dannion was wonderful and no, he’s not the kinda guy that gives you warm fuzzies and that DOES make him more credible. He wouldn’t lie about this stuff…it is brave of him to share his stories coming from his background and I feel it is important too.

    Thank you so much for all your kind words Corinne. You have been an inspiration to me for a few years now. You were on one of the first calls I was ever on (almost 3 years ago) to learn at all about spirituality and I have loved reading your blog and following what you’ve been doing.

    Much Love and thank you so much for the great interview.

    Jenny, Congrats on your new role! You will be fantastic at this I am sure. What a great combination with your reconnective healing work too. I think past life and between-life work can be such a powerful tool on the spiritual journey. It opened so many doorways for myself. I had a lot of healing to do around having been persecuted for my beliefs in a past life, and coming to understand that, and work through it, really have me insight into patterns I had in this life that were blocking me from my true essence. And the process continues.
    Thanks for sharing so many great resources. XOXO – Lisa

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks so much! I DO think it is a really good combination with the Reconnective Healing. This was my first week doing a bit of both and WOW – it is pretty awesome. I’ve been smiling a LOT! 🙂

    I, too think past and between life work can have great benefits and remove blocks we didn’t even know we had. I also applaud you for understanding and working through it and what it meant for your current life’s journey.

    I am on a quest to know and connect with my soul as best I can and these 2 modalities are definitely helping me on my way. The fact that I can offer them to other people really feels like an honor each and every time I do them. It’s a pretty good way to go to work! 😉

    Thanks again so much Lisa. Your support means a lot.

    Lotsa of Love, xo

    Hi Michelle,

    Dannion’s story is amazing. I just met someone in my own town that was also hit by lightening and had a NDE and it is amazing to speak with him about it. His interview was recently put up on youtube and I think you’d enjoy it.

    I would also LOVE to meet Brian Weiss. SUCH an important person in this field.

    I am so happy you enjoyed the series Michelle and deeply appreciate your support over the last few years!!!

    MUCH love, xo

    Hi Jenny,

    I have really enjoyed reading your posts. I have read most of Dr Weiss’s books and two of Dr Newton’s books and am very interested in the subject of life between lives. As you have had this experience yourself, can you throw some light on the subject of memory. How do we know if we are learning, or improving when we have no memory of why we came into this incarnation? How do we know that we are not just making the same mistakes over and over again? Financially, hypnosis and life between lives therapy is way out of my reach. Getting in touch with the inner self is not an easy thing to do. I feel help and guidance in my life leading me to read certain books and visit certain websites, but when will I know that I have found the information I am looking for? How can us ‘silly humans’ stop being silly and be less earthly and more in control of our experiences?

    With great love
