Journey of Souls by Michael Newton, Llewellen Publications, 1997.


(From book cover) This remarkable book uncovers--for the first time--the mystery of life in the spirit world after death on earth. Dr. Michael Newton, a hynotherapist in private practice, has developed his own hypnosis techniques to reach his subjects' hidden memories of the hereafter. The resulting narrative acts as a progressive "travel log" of the accounts of 29 people who were placed in a state of super-consciousness. While in deep hypnosis, these subjects movingly describe what has happened to them between their former reincarnations on earth. They reveal graphic details about how it feels to die, who meets us right after death, what the spirit world is really like, where we go and what we do as souls, and why we choose to come back in certain bodies.

After reading Journey of Souls, you will gain a better understanding of the immortality of the human soul...and you will meet day-to-day personal challenges with a greater sense of purpose as you begin to understand the reasons behind events in your own life. While in a state of deep hypnosis, 29 people recalled their experiences between lives as eternal spirits. Through their extraordinary stories, you will learn specifics about:


  • How it feels to die
  • What you see and feel right after death
  • Spiritual guides
  • What happens to "disturbed" souls
  • Why you are assigned to certain soul groups in the spirit world and what you do there
  • How you choose another body to return to earth
  • Different levels of souls: beginning, intermediate and advanced
  • When and where you first learn to recognize soulmates on earth
  • The purpose of life and manifestations of a "creator"


    Evidential Basis

    Dr. Newton believes that the hypnotic responses of his subjects concerning the afterlife provide credible information because of the great consistency in their reports, even using the same words and graphic descriptions, because he has no indication of anyone attempting to fake their spiritual existence, because he treats each case as if he is hearing the information for the first time, and because of his efforts to corroborate specific functional activities of souls during regression sessions.

    Key Results


    Primary Reasons to Read this Work

    Dr. Newton's work has provided the most comprehensive model of the afterlife that is available, based upon hypnotic regression sessions from a large number of subjects. Although direct proof of hypnotic recall of the period between past lives is seemingly impossible, there are a number of cases with other investigators where the details of past lives have been proven accurate, as discussed in the Reincarnation section. The strongest reason for belief in this model is the great degree of similarity in all subject reports. It provides a framework of fact and spiritual organization that can be used for comparison with similar information derived from other sources.
