Commentary: Past life work continues to have new incarnations

Brian Weiss, M.D., isn’t the only practitioner who works with past lives, but he may well be the best known. Luckily for others whose have experienced past life work, his books help explain the process.

So do his workshops and televised interviews, one recently with Katie Couric. Other recent interviews are available online with Oprah Winfrey as well.

Dr. Weiss is a graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School, and is Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami, Florida. Click here and here for two enlightening videos into his past life work.

For patients or clients with difficult or unresolved issues, past life work can provide an avenue into both understanding and removing obstacles to their progress. Weiss notes that past life work can provide almost instant relief for some, but also cautions that it is necessary to integrate the past life work into current life issues during sessions.

In an article in the "Huffington Post" this past July, Weiss reminds readers that déjà vu experiences are not the only sign of a possible past life connection. Vivid dreamers sometimes are reminded of past lives and, through journaling their dreams, might come across a continuing narrative involving a past life or lives that help resolve issues.

A strong pull toward a particular historical period can also be also a signpost. What happened then, and why is that person or soul in your life again? What does a particular person want of you now?

What's more, uncovering these may help clients and patients even if they are not aware of it on the conscious level. For real stories about the use of past lives, check out Weiss’ new book, Miracles Happen, published with much professional acclaim in 2012.
