As objective as I'd like to be in reviewing this book, my review is subjective and based on the information I have gathered from reading and from my experience over the years. I do like this book, and I have already recommended it to several of my fellow hypnotherapists who have been working with past life regression for few decades. How "new" will past-life regression techniques presented in this book be to you, will depend on your earlier studies and background.
The author states that what's new in his technique is deepening into the feelings of the events revealed by the subconscious, which he got from Gestalt therapy. Any Past Life Regression trainings that I attended and any books that use past-life regression as a tool for inner transformation focus on accessing, deepening, releasing and/or transforming the emotions. They may do it in somewhat different ways, but in the end most of those techniques resemble the process described in Core Transformations by Connirae Andreas.
The second new technique that the author mentions is the process he adopted from David Quigley, called Etheric Plane Communication. This process is again more or less identical to NLP technique called "Changing Perceptual Positions". Granted, Fritz Peals, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, was one of the people after whom the NLP was initially modeled, and I don't know who is the originator of this technique, but it's been around perhaps for few decades, and it has been part of any Past Life Regression workshop I took. The purpose of the technique is facilitating understanding and forgiveness.
The third new technique that the author mentions is the application of Divine Resources and Light. Again, this process has been used by most hypnotherapists that I know, many of whom may have been inspired by working with A Course in Miracles, and it seems that throughout the past several decades, both in past-life regression, in NLP, and in different esoteric traditions, the practice has been to first "arm" the person with the necessary resources, starting with love, light and other divine attributes as well as any other resource the person might have needed and then re-visit the challenging event. In NLP, the process is called New History Generator, elsewhere it's referred to as re-scripting, revising or recreating the event. Since Light contains everything, it is natural for any spiritually oriented therapist to bring "light" to any "dark" corners of the client's consciousness.
At the beginning of the book, the author appropriately pointed out that all issues that people have arise out of the erroneous perception of separation from God Source. That is straight from A Course in Miracles and that initially attracted me to this book. The techniques later in this book, while still heavily focusing on the Light as a healing agent, diverge from A Course in Miracles and the perception of oneness (God is in everything; I AM the Light of the World), to Angels of White Light. By the way, in that state of oneness, to which A Course in Miracles aspires to help the person experience, since there is no longer consciousness of separation, there are no past lives either - they only exist in the consciousness of separation. Getting off the "wheel of rebirth" through the experience of oneness, is on the other hand beyond the scope of the book of past life regression. In that state of oneness, and in the experience of "I AM the Light of the World" any spirit attachments would naturally fall off - because in that consciousness, nothing exists other than the consciousness of the Light.
In the experience of the Light, there is no "mine" and "yours". However, the techniques in this book do not go that far, so here White Light is used to bring some healing, and then again to create separation - there is no longer One Light, like in Course in Miracles, but "this bit of Light energies belong to a client", and "that bit of Light energies belong to someone else". Good-bye unity, welcome duality. It may be what you want to experience, or you may prefer to experience oneness - one Light, one Self, expressing through everything - no separation.
The fourth new technique the author mentions is the remote work - doing past life regression, and spirit releasement through a surrogate. These again have been written in books like Spirit Releasement Therapy by William Baldwin and Remote Depossession by Irene Hickman.
The fifth new technique the author mentions is using the client's spiritual orientation. One of the first things that any Ericksonian hypnotherapist or NLP practitioner is thought is to use the client's model of the world to help the client, and that naturally includes the clients spiritual orientation (or lack of it).
While I may not consider most of the techniques used in this book as "new", I would still recommend it to past life regression therapists. Most techniques in this book seem to revolve around spirit releasement and in addition to this book I'd recommend reading books that delve into these subjects at greater length like Spirit Releasement Therapy by William Baldwin, Journey of Souls by Michael Newton, Remarkable Healings by Shakuntala Modi, Remote Depossession and Mind-Probe Hypnosis by Irene Hickman, The Unquiet Dead by Edith Fiore, Freeing Captives by Louise Ireland Frey, Finding True Magic by Elias, and 2 wonderful volumes on Past Life Regression by Lucas, Core Transformation by Connirae Andreas, and A Course in Miracles.
Compared to other books that contain wealth of techniques related to past life regression and spirit releasement, this book is brief, and if you're new to past life regression and spirit releasement, you can learn a lot from this book in a day or two.
After I posted this review, the author contacted me and I exchanged few emails with him. He comes across as a very nice person and if you live near the area where he practices, by all means visit him for past life regression or spirit releasement sessions.
