This is the book – or more specifically the book signing that led me to make an appointment with Valerie. It’s a fascinating story line in my life but there are better and clearer stories in Same Soul, Many Bodies.

Brian Weiss while looking into past lives noticed that sometimes people talk about the future as well! It’s impossible to verify the truth of the future like the past. In his interpretation, the future is not concrete but an infinite number of possibilities and choices. It is mind

I love reading books like this not because I agree with everything he writes but because I believe in the possibility of it. It also reminds me to not be judgemental of others journey and beliefs. The insistence of religion is fear of not knowing. I don't mind not knowing. Also, I would like to live in a world where we are all progressing toward compassion and love, so it seems like a nice possibility. Whether or not he met Jesus Christ is debatable and I wish it didn't, but it ruined his ...more

This is a fascinating book on past and future life regression by a well respected psychologist. He gives case studies of a few well-chosen clients. It was very interesting to learn how helpful regression can be to people. They regress to a past life and are then able to understand their current lives more clearly. It can actually make huge positive changes in their current lives.
What interested me the most was the progressions into the future. A lot of them had strikingly similarities for

I was given this to read on a day I had to take two flights and sit for hours in an airport and it was the perfect read, with lots of interesting case studies delving into the benefit of using past life regression to uncover and heal from blockages or recurring patterns that keep people back from progressing in their lives.

It is fascinating how the hypnotic process can access/create stories that make it easier for the individual to identity their own patterns in a way that the intellect/ego

My mom's gotten into new age stuff, and I borrowed this one from her. It's hard to believe in reincarnation, much less the multiple universe of souls and the "Masters" that the author talks about. Yet, if his stories about what people experience under hypnosis is even half true... then it's really amazing. As he notes, it doesn't matter if people really experienced those past or future lives; but the metaphor and the emotions they gain from those insights can and often does heal their current ...more

Another fantastic book by Brian Weiss. I am a complete believer in reincarnation after reading almost all of his books. He once was a complete skeptic, but after too much evidence of continued lives in different roles with the same spirit groups could no longer deny patient after patient regressing and progressing to past and now future lives. Again, the message, it is all about love.

Ever since I started my blog, I find that I'm having to defend any topics of conversation regarding reincarnation even though that's only incidental to the rest of the topics I talk about. (Not the people who follow my blog - they happen to be in alignment with what I'm talking about, but others who run into this topic from an outside perspective.)

What is it about reincarnation that rubs some people the wrong way? It's just a belief, like any other. None of us really know without experiencing

A powerful book, one that has the ability to change one's perspective about life as a whole. It is not preachy, nor are the ideas forceful, yet this book grows within oneself, like a tree with million branches. It opens the gates of one's mind and add beauty to one's life!

A must read for anyone who is way too troubled by the petty troubles in one's life and is seeking greater understanding and the big-picture thinking.

Everybody is familiar with past life regression; however, I was not enlightened about future progression both within a current lifetime and lives to come. The Utopian vision in about a thousand years sounds awesome. Too bad many don't realize that they create their own reality and can change their karma and their lives for the better by replacing fear and doubt with love and faith.

This book is good but not as good as Many Live, Many Masters. I kind of had an issue with one case, where his patient is a Pakistani girl 500 years ago. But, there was no Pakistan 500 years ago! Pakistan didn't come into being until August, 1947. Just curious.

I just LOVE these kinds of books. Call me crazy, but could there be something to this? I've read his "Many Live, Many Masters" a few years ago on recommendation from my sister. Wonderful reading.

If you are among those who think that there exist nothing like doreamon's time machine, then wait. Dr.Brian Weiss explained about the techniques of regression and progression in this book. He puts forward the stories of his various patients who underwent the regression and progression techniques. And this doctor cured his hopeless patients and made them more optimistic beings through regression. All the stories mentioned in the book are pretty much interesting and captivating.

Title: Same Soul, Many Bodies

Author: Dr. Brian Weiss

Length: 226 pages

Publisher: Piatkus

Genre: Non-Fiction

My rating: 4.5/5


This book by Dr. Brian Weiss describes the experiences of his patients when he did a Progression Therapy on them along with Regression.

My Take:

I still maintain that Dr. Brian Weiss’s first book Many Lives, Many Masters changed the way I looked at life. It bought me more positivity, more patience, more compassion and I became more giving coz that’s what we get life for.

Really good book if you're into spirituality, or psychoanalysis mixed with spirituality. Also, if you want to read about past life regression as a tool to heal yourself by looking into your past and future lives and how they are intertwined together, I would recommend it.
I would, however, recommend reading Many Lives, Many Masters first.

As usual, another winner by Dr. Brian Weiss. If you're into past life-regression, check this one out for some progressions as well. Wish I could go see him in October in NYC!
The rating would depend on whether you believe in reincarnation or not.

I really enjoyed this book. It gave more insights about the ways in which we live our lives. It is the third book by Brian Weiss that I have read, so it did seem a little repetitive with some of the others, but it was interesting how he used future life progression to help people make choices about the type of human they want to be in this life. It reminded me a lot of a real life A Christmas Carol with Scrooge getting to see how his future would progress if he stayed on his current path. Weiss’ ...more

Some books just hit you because of where you are in life at that very moment. "Same Soul, Many Bodies" did just that. I have been a fan of Dr. Weiss' work since I read his first book, "Many Masters, Many Lives," but this one really spoke to my spirit because of where I stand right now.

As we face the imminent death of my cherished aunt, pages 10 & 11 absolutely walloped me over the head. Dr. Weiss talks about patients preparing to die and seeing long-deceased loved ones waiting for them. This

While the first book from this author was interesting to me, this one felt a bit preachy. The author, a self-proclaimed man of science, offers only anecdotal "evidence" of lives that go on after death. I read the first book many years ago and didn't have a problem with the concept of having lived before. But in this book, the author takes his hypnotized patients into possible future lives to help them get a handle on this one. I found that to be a bit hokey and he goes on and on about how to ...more

I was thinking what more can Dr Brian Weiss add other than past life regression studies in this book but once I went on with the book I just couldn't put it down. The post life progression studies in the book captivated as I read the book in one single sitting. The case study wherein the author encounters a person who came to earth a 100 thousand years back as an alien stumbled my belief of evolution and our present studies on the subject. The author has very beautifully emphasised the ...more

Brian Weiss is one of my favourite. Coming from a Hindu religion background, it is very simple to accept souls, reincarnation concept. Many Master Many lives..was a great read.
But Same Soul Many Bodies, opens my mindset. It's so beautiful to realize the relation between being victimized and being victim. How to break this relation. While, i am still not sure , that future can be really seen, but definitely , how our current choices , affect the future is so nicely written.

Brian is a great story

Recommended to Mary by: Randy
If the idea of hypnotically regressing to past lives sounds hokey, then the idea of PROGRESSING to future lives is just over the top! But a friend whose judgment I respect recommended this book, so I gave it a try. While the author believes in reincarnation, he doesn't force his beliefs. He suggests you can take this method as a Jungian-based therapy (my interpretation wherein the patient explores his/her archetypes through hypnosis, projecting future selves that might result from the patient's ...more

Whether you believe in reincarnation or not this book is an eye opener. The catharsis of each of the different patients of Dr. Weiss' is as entertaining as it is inspiring. If you know that past lives exist and the relationships and places and even preoccupations we have in this life carry forward, then you'll be delighted by the details.
If you're a non-believer you'll still be inspired to introspect all of your personal existing relationships and question your decisions as you go about your

The book is readable but as a host of well fabricated 'true-lies'!! Please have a look at one of such, " A third regression, which took place a week later, showed us a different facet of the same theme of violence and abandonment. This time she was a Pakistani girl living in a small wooden house some five hundred years ago."

My God, there was no Pakistan five hundred years ago!!! Pakistan was formed in 1947!!!???

Skeptic or believer, this book makes you think. Being of an open mind, my imagination got quite a workout over the 24 hours it took me to read. I appreciate that the author takes a very realistic view of his own work; I was able to respect him and enjoyed his humble voice. Overall, the stories rang true, whether in a literal or metaphorical sense. I ordered more of Weiss's books, so he succeeded in piquing my curiosity and making me eager to further my understanding of his work.

This book sounds really out there and maybe it it is. But at a time when I was struggling with faith and finding comfort in this life; the one place I found it was this book. Something about Weiss' style makes his theories and experiences REAL and easily adoptable. The messages change the way that I look at life. This book profoundly changed the way I was feeling.

Same Soul Many Bodies, like all Weiss' books, is both thought provoking and inspiring. It was a bit more dense at times and I found myself needing to put it down every once in a while simply to absorb and wrap my head around everything. It will be a book I refer back to again and again. I absolutely loved it!
Though it was difficult to follow at times I learned a lot. I think it took me so long to read this book bc there were so many new and foreign concepts I had to process. But after doing so I feel like there are some really important lessons. I'm enjoying reading all Dr Weiss' work.

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
