Recently I met my beloved friend Gerda in Munich. Gerda is Bavarian; she and her husband Mark, a retired American army field officer, had offered to help me with research for the WW2 novel I'm working on.

Gerda is an extraordinary person: she's present and conscious with an open heart. Always. I've been her friend for seventeen years and I've never seen her falter. Amazing. When she gives me advice, I follow it. Just before I got on the S-bahn heading to the airport, she gave me homework. She not

More inspirational, feel-good stories obtained through hypnotic regression about our journey as souls. From our current life to past lives and the time in between, everything is about experiencing and learning life lessons. They must be learned no matter how long it takes.

So, what is the meaning of life? (view spoiler)

Going Back to Go Forward

As an author who writes fiction that features reincarnation as a given and has done considerable research into the phenomenon in history and in the field, I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Weiss's latest book Miracles Happen. I haven't studied his earlier works (intend to do so), which evidently present more of the nuts and bolts of his method of regression, but I got the general idea from the mix of testimonials and commentary that comprise this book.

His inclusion of portals othe
Diversamente dai precedenti libri le esperienze vengono raccontate in prima persona da chi le ha sperimentate, al termine il dott. Weiss o la figlia commentano cercando di dare maggiore una comprensione di quanto letto. Inoltre le esperienze che leggiamo non si svolgono presso lo studio del dott. Weiss ma durante i suoi seminari, talvolta leggiamo anche di persone che hanno avuto regressioni spontanee sin dall'infanzia.

Eu não dei 5 estrelas porque, apesar de ter amado esse livro, ele ainda não superou "Muitas vidas, Muitos mestres" pra mim, o que acho que, de verdade, nenhum livro será tão bom quanto o primeiro. E nenhum vai me fazer me sentir tão encantada.

Mas eu recomendo de coração esse livro pra todo mundo que se interessa em vidas passadas e terapia de regressão. É muito bom ver a espiritualidade sendo tratada do jeito que deveria: simples, direta, profunda e com muito amor.

I've read many of Brian Weiss works. This book is a few of his books put together beautifully to tell the endless stories of people who have found healing through past life regression. Inspiring!

As Dr. Weiss says, there are no co-incidences. I never intended to read this book but it ended up at my home and before I knew it, I was reading it.
I had already read some of this books earlier and they had much impact on me. So I was pretty happy when this book landed in my lap.
The book doesn't start with the romanticism of 'Only Love is Real' but has the same mysticism we find in all his works.
The experiences start off in mild manner and get more and more intense as the book finishes.

This book is strictly for the believers. For anyone else, its gooey pap. Even if one were to take the author's word on reincarnation, what's the point in reading about person after person narrating his/her experiences about their past lives? The worst part is that the author doesn't supply any scientific basis to his observations. Its a tad disappointing considering he is a trained psychiatrist. The book is nothing more than a 350 page advertisement for Dr.Weiss' workshops. Avoidable.

Fascinating account of the many people who underwent past life regression. What they learned from their past lives enabled them to make changes in their present lives. I liked that it was pointed out that not everyone can be regressed. Some spooky stuff about members in the audience picking up messages for others who were there.

I have been a fan of Dr Weiss for 20 years, and this book is a compilation of many experiences during past life regression therapy of his students, patients. Very interesting.

I had read one of Dr. Weiss' books on reincarnation and loved it. This one wasn't as interesting to me. It felt like Dr. Weiss had gone too 'commercial.'

Me gustó mucho este libro, debe ser el que más me gusta luego de "Muchas vidas...". Particularmente disfruté mucho cómo estaba organizado cada capítul0 y cómo se iban hilvanando las historias. En relación a esto último, considero que este libro tiene muchas más reflexiones y no sólo "experiencias" y ya: entiendo que es un libro con mucho conocimiento espiritual valiosísimo.

A collection of past life stories from attendees of Weiss' Omega and one day workshops. Inspiring and heartwarming, you'll certainly find wisdom and comfort albeit a very Weiss way if you have read his other books. This us actually my favorite one so far because of its diversity.

This book gave credence to the thoughts that had been traveling through my mind over the years. I was afraid to discuss them with anyone for fear

that they would think I was mentally ill. Reading this book gave me such peace and a realization of my true soul.

I really liked this book, but not quite as much as some of Dr. Weiss' previous books ( my favorites are Many Lives, Many Masters and Same Soul, Many Bodies). The previous ones read more like stories, for the most part, while Miracles is a collection of many individuals' experiences.
Brian Weiss was a very scientific, traditionally trained psychotherapist. He had a patient named Catherine who changed everything he believed about life. When working with Catherine, they were uncovering traumatic ch
Another wonderful book from Dr. Brian Weiss that he has compiled along with his daughter Amy about Life and beyond.
Though I liked his previous books'Only love is real' and 'Many Lives many Masters' more than this one, but even this book makes you feel as peaceful as the others.
This has to be read slowly and probably in many sittings, savoured and understood with the love, depth and knowledge it talks about.

Yet another work form Dr. Weiss that changed my perception on life and the paths we choose to live. How to put it into words? The way this book changed me inside is just too strong and wonderful to explain. All I can say is that I will never be the same, and will never see reality as only what it seems to be.

The many personal experiences gathered in this book make a delightful portfolio of magical inspiration. The stories made me really come to appreciate the present and the life that I now lea

Prior to "Miracles Happen" I have read two other books written by Dr. Brian Weiss namely Many lives Many masters and only love is real. This one is my most favourite out of the lot. Loved the letter format of the book that touches upon and elaborates on peoples experiences and their healing through past life regressions. After every letter there is a reflection on it by Dr. Brian Weiss. This gives immense scope of learning for the reader. The book talks about various topics like healing from phy ...more

No es el primer libro que leo del renombrado psiquiatra Weiss, especialista en el estudio de la vida después de la muerte y en las vidas pasadas, reencarnación, etc. Este libro habla principalmente de las regresiones que practica a centenares de personas a vidas pasadas, para así entender mejor sus enfermedades presentes y curarse definitivamente.

Inspiring Energy
I have been fan of Brian Weiss since I read his 1st book (one soul, many bodies), and I read most of his book since then. This particular book is compilation of PLR therapies of his students, which was bit repetitive for me and I found the book too long with 342 pages, which could have been easily 200 pages or less. I liked most the experiences written which was beyond the earth and before the creation of humans. That was something new concept for me to rationalize. But overall Brian Weiss books ...more

I have always been intrigued by Brian Weiss' books about past life regression and have read all of them. This latest book has again inspired me to seek an opportunity to participate in one of his workshops. They always reconfirm my belief that we all have incredible energy that cannot be destroyed when we die. We have all lived many lives; We are currently the composite of all of our previous lives. I reminded of the quote: "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual ...more

Brian Weiss books are hard to put down;
they truly can be read all night. Your perceptions of life and death are challenged as you read about and how they can be used for healing. things are not always as they seem, as a matter of fact, they are usually quite different than they really seem. Karma, reincarnation, and the tragedy of death are all looked at much differently after you read these books.
I feel like my brain has been stretched by this guy's books lol! After reading a few chapters I felt like I had to stop just to process all the new concepts and paradigms introduced. But I love it, and feel like I need to try this type of therapy:)

Anyone interested in the idea of reincarnation and spirituality should read this. And even if you're not, you should read it just so you can ponder some fascinating new theories on life, purpose, and love.

The experiences with past life regression mentioned in this book are heartwarming and gives you goosebumps in a nice sort of way. It's uncanny how many stories I was able to relate with, in terms of the lessons each imbibed through their experience. Even if one doesn't believe in past lives, I think we can learn such invaluable truths about relationships, living life to the fullest, being the best version of ourselves that is possible in the one life we have right now!

Beautiful stories that heal

This book is so beautifully written and interspersed with many people's experiences of past lives through regressions. These stories, mixed with Dr. Weiss' explanations, truly gave me a peaceful sense that we are here to learn and experience and transitioning is not to be feared. The descriptions are of a beautiful, peaceful experience full of love. It was such a quick read as are all of Dr. Weiss' books.

I loved this book and I just bought two copies for friends as gifts. I was very skeptical of the ability to recall past lives but this book has very detailed accounts; the majority of which are validated in one way or another. I enjoyed reading all of the stories and was surprised by the healing power of past life regression therapy. This book also gave me strong validation of the bond and love I have for my spouse, my soulmate.

As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from "the space between lives," which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss's family and his dead son. ...more

“To see and appreciate the soul of others with whom you are in a relationship is a higher state of awareness. To see only their outer characteristics provides a limited and incomplete perspective. Their current personality, just like their current physical body, is a temporary manifestation. They have had many bodies and many personalities but only one enduring soul, only one continuous spiritual essence. See this essence and you will see the real person.” 22 likes
