Amazon Book Description:
In Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akaashic Record Lois J. Wetzel, MFA, has written the long-awaited sequel to her first book, Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives. Yet Reincarnation takes the reader on a trip to the past like none other. Once again, riveting stories of the past lives of scores of different people are narrated. These lifetimes go back hundreds of thousands of years on Earth, allowing the reader glimpses of long-lost civilizations not contained in our historical record. In this book, unlike the first, the author challenges our ancient history as wrong, giving ample examples of proof we have lived on this swirling ball of minerals for hundreds of thousands of years! She talks about her past life readings for clients, but she also shares some of the spontaneous past life memories which others, including famous people, have had.
The past lives of Lois’ clients are shared so that the reader may learn and grow from the experiences of her clients. Naturally, clients’ names and identifying information have been changed to protect their privacy. Surprisingly, some readers have said they actually felt some of their own past life issues were resolved as they read about the prior lifetimes of others.
Why learn about our past lives? Isn’t this lifetime enough to handle? Because the whole story of who we are has to do with everything we have experienced. We know that who we are has a lot to do with our childhoods. Why would it not have to do with who we were in our prior lifetimes? Knowing about our past lives allows us to know more fully who we actually are at the level of the Immortal Soul. Why are we terrified of, instantly despise, or immediately adore someone we’ve just met? Why would we avoid visiting a certain location, even though there is no reason? Why do cruise ships or horses terrify us? Why are we so powerfully drawn to bow-hunting, cake decorating, scuba diving, fashion design or sailing having never experimented with it before? Why do some things come so easily people swear we have done it before? Why were we born with these predispositions? Are the answers in past lives?
The author also includes correspondence with the clients before and after the reading, and includes changes in the clients lives that occurred because of the reading as well as insights they had about what Lois had seen that she could not possibly have known about their lives.
Reincarnation also discusses some truly strange concepts, like parallel and overlapping lifetimes, and why it may be possible to be alive in two bodies in different locations on a timeline that overlaps. Or how can we die and come back into the same body, remembering the out-of-body event with conscious awareness of ourselves while not in our bodies?
All these topics and more lie between the pages of this fascinating, compelling book.
Here area few of the many five star reviews:
Clearly, in an easy to understand voice, Lois speaks with integrity and compassion.
By Alice Horton
Lois speaks to this subject so clearly in a voice that is easy to understand. She knows her stuff, and our stuff, on this topic of Reincarnation, Past Lives, and the Akashic Record. Her integrity and compassion flows page after page as she helps the reader grasp this sometimes difficult to understand subject, and reassurance that all is right with the world.
A Better Present through Past Life Revelations
By Dana Taylor
If anyone needs to understand why past life therapy is important, simply read the books of Lois J. Wetzel. Her work in the emerging field of Akashic Record Reading reveals the true value learning of past experiences to understand present situations and relationships. Lois is not only extremely gifted in her mystic abilities to communicate with the Guardians of the Records, but is obviously a highly intelligent woman bringing a multidimensional world view to the planet. Her work is ground breaking and is leading the way for others to explore their gifts.
The book is well organized and downright fascinating. She offers people a glimpse into the full spectrum of their Souls to better navigate their lives. It’s definitely a page turner. Recommended to the spiritual adventurer!
Fascinating and thought-provoking
By Ms. Reader “Shirin”
This is what I would call an “authentic” book. That is, the author – who is a long-time practicing spiritual healer and teacher of over 30 years – writes honestly and simply about the subject of past life readings, a complex subject that many people believe to be either an impossibility or simply creative fiction. The author’s credibility is important here, because she is presenting information on various aspects of reincarnation that may not fit with the reader’s personal view of what it is or even IF it is, as well as the therapeutic value of past life readings.
This book includes numerous actual case studies, including the feedback received from her clients. Very important, too, is that in reading through these case studies the reader has an opportunity to consciously reflect on his/her own current life experience through reading about the life lessons of others.
The book includes chapters covering several subjects: how the author came to give past life readings, how she does them, the therapeutic value of the readings for her clients, and background information on reincarnation and the Akashic records, her life mission, overlapping and parallel lifetimes, a new look at “ancient” history, examples of past lives of historical/famous personalities, and a powerful chapter on forgiveness and compassion.
As the author states in her book: “Do not worry if you cannot accept everything I write here. Just let what you cannot accept be like a twig in the river. If you don’t like that twig, let it float past you. If you stay on the river, you may find that you end up with a collection of nice new twigs you do like, but please don’t feel you have to collect them all.”
My recommendation is to stay with the book and draw your own conclusions. I found it to be both fascinating and thought provoking.
Thought-provoking treatment of the meaning carried within past life details
This is Wetzel’s second book of case studies describing past lifetimes which I have read. As with the earlier book –Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives – she goes into great detail, both about the context which she is shown and the individuals and interactions. Wetzel’s treatment of this subject matter is unique in the genre. She approaches each lifetime as if it were an urgent message to her client. Not only must the message be clearly communicated but the client must willingly take responsibility for absorbing it with full intention to “grok” its rich meaning in both the past and current lifetimes. There are many writers who approach reincarnation and the stuff of past lives as an entertainment, or a hunt for historical celebrities. Wetzel’s readings remind me of clinical therapy interviews, in which the client is telling the stories and, with the guidance from the therapist, putting together all the pieces, stepping back emotionally to gain the objectivity that will free him or her from endlessly repeating the past and yet never getting the point.
I am significantly impressed by her rare ability to peer into past archives of individual lives, which she accesses much like watching streaming video with not only all five physical senses fully enabled but also emotional receptivity – empathy. She is not just narrating the action for her clients. She is trying to help them gain new insight. Wetzel seems to emphasize forgiveness as a common theme. Not so much forgiving others but forgiving oneself. She explains how a client’s focus on shame, guilt, inadequacy, envy, betrayal, greed, self-importance – any of a host of all too human emotional reactions – obfuscates the simple lesson to be learned in a lifetime. She talks about the difference between forgiving and forgetting, and how failure to forgive turns a set of actions and a group of other souls into a never-ending carousel ride inside a hall of mirrors. As the Eagles sang in the late 1970s: “You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave!” Checking out is not learning the point, not “getting” it. The client must see another way to view the situation, reframe it, have a different reaction and opinion that will lead to RELEASE.
Wetzel’s interpretation of past lifetimes is from the perspective of love and compassion, for self and for others. Each of us is capable of being our own worst critic, our cruelest jailor. That is a true waste of life. Wetzel mentions that she frequently receives feedback from readers who report a sense of healing themselves, as they relate to her stories about the past lifetimes of strangers. I can readily understand how this is the case. I recommend anyone with an interest in reincarnation read both of Wetzel’s books describing her case studies for clients. Read them not as vignettes but place yourself in each story, as one of the primary actors or even a close observer. You will get far more than just entertainment value out of it.
