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

I've been reading and watching materials on Dolores Cannon [hypnotherapist and regressionist (past-lives regression), it’s been 40 years]. Doctor Weiss' results are quite similar to those of Dolores. Yet, she started earlier.
2nd of July 2013

My commentary on Dolores may be seen here:

Doctor Brian Weiss is a psychiatrist. He got his major in Chemistry from Columbia University, and his specialty at the Yale Medical School.

I took my time and read this slowly. I hesitated to get this book and to read it. I was afraid the idea of reincarnation and having past lives would make sense to me and that I would believe it! And sure enough, I did and I do!! I hesitate to say this because most people already know I have a mental illness, and that belief makes me seem crazier, flakier, or whatever. The times I've listened to Hollywood stars taught about reincarnation and past lives and thought, "Oh, WHA WOO!" But Brian Weiss ...more

I read this after reading Many Lives Many Masters. This book, IMHO, is as good as his first one. I've always been afraid of dieing, esp. a painful death or going to hell, but this book has helped me calm down a bit and realize that it won't be that bad. There's a lot of love and emotions after death and it's just comforting to know that I'll be seeing all the people who's left me and all the people I've left behind one day again.

Recommends it for: someone who recently lost someone or is interested in the options of afterlife
while you may or may not believe this guy, this book is a very interesting opinion of the afterlife/beforelife. he speaks of clients that he hypnotized to get in touch with their other lives. they see people in other lives that are in their current life. i would recommend it to someone who is open minded about religion & afterlife type stuff.

Dos seis livros qua actualmente encontram-se publicados pela Pergaminho de Brian Weiss, este não é, de todo, o seu melhor trabalho, porque para quem já leu um ou dois títulos do autor 'A Divina Sabedoria dos Mestres' torna-se um pouco repetitivo. É sim, um livro propício para o leitor que pretenda ler um primeiro livro deste autor norte-americano, que tem um séquito fiel de admiradores por todo o mundo. Mas Brian Weiss também gera controvérsia; muitos são os críticos que lançam admoestações

Not his best work. It was repetitive, and in some paragraphs quotes were used from other books not written by himself which should have been clarified. For anyone who has not read a lot of books on the metaphysical though, would enjoy it.

There is no star rating that can really explain how amazing this book is. This man is a true guru, teacher for all of us. I treasure this, and all his books, very dearly.

Reading Dr. Brian Weiss' works always makes me feel Zen. Loved this book. This is one of those books, though, that can't be read in a rush. I always felt like after I read patches, I needed to contemplate on those. This reading has allowed me to set some new goals for myself :)

This book is a collector’s item to read again. In succession to the first book in series (Many lives, many masters) regarding patient past life regression analysis, in this 2nd book, Dr. Brain Weiss talks about the messages from the spiritual masters. Whether you believe in past life and reincarnation or not, these messages are described and explained so beautifully that you know and inherently realize that each message is anything but a profound universal truth.

A life enhancing and empowering book. Throws light on the intricate subjects like reincarnation, hypnosis, NDE, post death experience, regression activity. The book re-emphasizes the fact that a soul never dies, it just gets liberated from the body and transcends to the next body. Brian has also explained the steps to under go a state of hypnosis. There are many examples cited for the people who have experienced the regression process and have experienced a much better state of heart and mind.

A friend recommended that I read this book after she had read it during a difficult time in her life. The book talks about the idea of reincarnation and past lives. She said after reading the book that she was sure we had known each other in a past life and I had been her mother, sister, or aunt. I thought that was such a sweet compliment that I had to give this book a shot.
I consider myself to a be a pretty open-minded person but when this book started to give examples of people who had been

excellent book.. although i do not claim to be part of any religious sect I do believe that many of the stories felt true to what I believe.
I learned that maybe it is not the religion you are part of, but rather the quality of life and lessons you have learned within your life which directs you down different paths and towards various sets/ if not the same people through your reincarnation.

I really loved this book. My father passed this year and I found comfort in knowing that I will most likel

after having read the previous two books by Dr. Brian Weiss i've slowed down with one, but it is still wonderful and does go further into the meat of the true purpose of his experiences as a Psychiatrist working with past life regression... the messeges from in the in between lives states. It's so very affirming.

Good reminder and practical applications of spiritual principles

This book is a courageous and beautiful reminder that faith in the eternity of spirit, a spiritual practice of meditation and trusting intuition heals and enhances one’s life. I am well. All is well.

A spiritual journey in 250 pages

This is probably the best series of books I have ever read on the subject of spirituality. It provides the deepest spiritual insights into the existence of life on Earth.

There are different levels of learning, and we must learn some of them in the flesh. We must feel the pain. When you're a spirit you feel no pain. It is a period of renewal. Your soul is being renewed. When you're in physical state in the flesh, you can feel pain; you can hurt. In spiritual form you do not feel. There is only happiness, a sense of well-being. But it's a renewal period for... us. The interaction between people in the spiritual form is different. When you are in physical state...

Brian's first book that I read "Many Lives, Many Masters" was incredible and I highly recommend it. "Many Lives, Many Masters" was a great extension of this book. Many of the same principles were repeated in this book, but he goes into a lot more detail through his continued experience. This is one of those books I had a hard time putting down because I was so eager to learn and read more. Wonderful book for anyone looking to advance in the spiritual journey.

Estuvo increíble! Ahora quiero continuar leyendo los otros libros de Brian Weiss ya que fue mi primero. Dijo muchas cosas muy ciertas y se me hace fascinante las experiencias de sus pacientes o de la gente con la que se ha topado. Es importante leer este tipo de libros porque te dan una perspectiva diferente y espiritual de la vida, más amplia de lo que es la realidad.
Me gustó mucho.

This is Weiss elaborating and interpreting things from the Masters in Many Lives, Many Masters. He does a fine job. But if you are looking for more stuff from "The Masters," I doubt this is a good choice. Some favorite excerpts:

In Carole’s family there is a saying that has come down through the years that the greatest sin is to take away someone's neshumah. Translated from the Yiddish, the expression means that it is a sin to take away another's joy, or, more colloquially, to rain on someon

Another enlightening book from Brian Weiss

This book sums up the revelations and spiritual evolutions that Brian Weiss experienced after the events of his first book "many lives/many masters".

In MLMM, Brian Weiss was very doubtful about his own findings and his scientific academic mind was reluctant to admit the possibily of reincarnation and past lifes experiences.

In Messages from the Master, 12 years later, Brian Weiss has totally surrendered to the accumulated evidence and now strongly belie
