Healing Through Past Life Recall

Lois Wetzel is the founder of The Indie Spiritual Book Awards. She is also a master healer and holds many certifications. Her work as an Akashic Records Reader is recognized throughout the globe. Her book, Akashic Records:Case Studies of Past Lives, is fascinating. Check it out!


In this riveting book the past lives of over thirty different people, covering scores of different lifetimes, are stunningly narrated. These lives span the course of several hundreds of thousands of years on Earth, and allow the reader glimpses into long-lost civilizations of which we have no historical record. These lives are recounted so that the reader can learn and grow from the experiences of others. But why even learn about our past lives? Is it not enough to just keep up with this one? Here is why.

It behooves us to learn who we really are. All the lifetimes we have add to the sum total of who we truly are, and why we do the things we do. What is the source of that phobia, or your instant love or hatred for that person you just met? Exactly why were you “born this way?” What are your hidden talents? Are you fascinated with Samurai swords or baking pastries for a reason? Do you cringe at the thought of visiting a certain location but don’t know why? Just learning about these forgotten memories has a healing effect on us; body mind and soul. Readers of this book report that hearing about other people’s past lives can heal us as well!

This book also explains how several of Lois’ clients originally came from different star systems and became a part of the reincarnation cycle on Earth.

Some of the past lives reviewed occurred in the context of a BodyTalk, Psych-K or EDINA energy medicine session, but most are formal Akashic Records readings. In the formal readings, from four to six past lives are covered for each individual, along with the reasons for knowing about that past life. The clients repeatedly observe that the readings explain a plethora of things about themselves or their relationships which they had always found puzzling, and about which the reader and author had no inkling.

The loving presence of the Guardians of the Akashic Records is felt throughout the pages of the book.

The changes that occurred in the clients’ lives as a result of having the readings are also noted. Past life readings have within them the inherent possibility to heal the client not only at a Soul level, but the individual personality who is getting the reading – emotionally, physically and spiritually. They do not simply impact the current lifetime, but other lives as well – past, present parallel lives and future lives.

Lois with Red LionAuthor Lois Wetzel says, “We are each Immortal Beings who come to Earth again and again to experience life in various bodies for the purpose of growth, expansion and learning as Souls. It is my hope that the reader will take from these past lives of others the deep understanding that our past lives are part of the complex web of everything that we are. Unresolved issues from our other lifetimes are still impacting us today. When we learn about them, we automatically begin to heal.”

“Hopefully,” Lois says, “one day all healers including psychologists and psychiatrists will consider past life therapy, the ongoing journey of the Soul, as a crucial piece of the healing process. After all, the word psyche does mean Soul.”

Past life connection to a medical mystery revealed in Ever-Flowing Streams: Tapping into Healing Energy 


Past-Life Regression on a Hardwood Floor

UPDATE September 2014:

Mira Kelley now has a book out, which is on my TBR list. Hay House is very selective about their authors. If you’re intrigued by past lives, check out Ms. Kelley. Below is my impression of her from the workshop I attended last year.

Beyond Past Lives: What Parallel Realities Can Teach Us About Relationships, Healing and Transformation by Mira Kelley


Last fall I saw a facebook ad for a Past-Life Regression workshop in Santa Monica with Mira Kelley. I had never heard of her, but with a quick click, I read her website and watched a couple of YouTube clips about her. She has risen to fame via endorsements by the New Age heavy-hitter, Wayne Dyer, no less. Since Santa Monica is a only a few freeways to the west, I decided to pony up the price of admission and go check out Ms. Kelley for myself.

The session took place at a yoga studio. Ms. Kelley sat on a cushion on a platform and the rest of us staked out a place on a hard, shiny wooden floor for FIVE hours with only a thin mat and pillow to keep us comfortable. I must say, I did fairly well for a woman who remembers the day that Kennedy was shot. Mira first told us her personal story on the path to making past life therapy her vocation. You can hear all the details for yourself at her website, MIRA KELLEY.

Mira Kelley mirakelley.comMira is a lovely woman with a lilting voice, colored with a slight Eastern European accent. Hypnosis is her game, and she has just the right tone for it. Smooth as glass, rhythmic and lulling as a rocking chair. When we finally got to the part to lay down (on that HARD floor), her sing-song sentences sent many right into another time and place. There were a few snores, as well. Afterwards, people shared fascinating tales.

Personally, I’ve had more coherent past-life recollections in the comfort of my living room, where my limbs weren’t losing circulation, using meditation techniques and linking to the Akashic Records. Still, Mira is a compelling personality and I’m glad I had the opportunity to spend the hours in her presence.

Kelley is part of a growing contingent of educated, thinking people taking reincarnation seriously. They work with clients on current life issues by exploring the influences of previous lives. If you’ve read my story in EVER-FLOWING STREAMS: TAPPING INTO HEALING ENERGY, you know that my world view changed radically when a past-life connection was revealed to me by a Reiki therapist. My life was changed and healed on many levels. It took me several years to come to terms with all the ramifications of that connection.

Mira has posted the one hour documentary IN ANOTHER LIFE on her website. It is the best film I have seen highlighting the pioneers of Western study on reincarnation, Dr. Ian Stevenson (Children Who Remember Previous Lives) and Carol Bowman (Children’s Past Lives). There are many other people interviewed who deal with past life therapy on a daily basis. If you want to spend a fascinating hour, watch IN ANOTHER LIFE:REINCARNATION IN AMERICA


Healer Reveals Soul Secrets

21 Layers of the Soul: Healing the Karmic Ties with Friends, Lovers, Family and Enemies by Annemiek Douw, MSc is one of the most fascinating metaphysical books I’ve read in quite a while. Douw is a Dutch healer with a busy European practice. As is often the case, her personal physical and emotional traumas led to unusual paths and extraordinary healing abilities.

Part One describes her personal journey. Part Two gets into the meat of the material—explaining the 21 Layers of the human auric field. Most of us who grasp the concept of auras have come to envision what she labels as layers 1-4: Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Astral. Beyond that, Douw defines various layers that reveal our complicated relationships through time and space. We are individuals, but we are also part of families, races, soul groups, humanity and many other categories. As the layers progress, they become less individual and more inter-related.

The author explains each layer and then illustrates with case studies of clients dealing with personal issues that brought them to her door. As someone who also works in energy healing, I was envious of her ability to read auric fields and pinpoint where a client needed help.

The material supposes a world view of past lives and karmic ties. Working with her spiritual guides, Douw hones in on specific past lives to explain current life situations. As I’ve seen in other books on similar subject matter, people often carry erroneous life lessons from one experience to another. For instance, in a very simplistic example, if someone dies by drowning, their last thoughts may be “never go swimming.” This leads to an “irrational” fear of swimming in the next life. As a healer, Douw goes in and works in the proper energy field to release that past life fear and rewrite their life script. The case histories reveal much more complicated issues. If there is truth to the concepts of this book, we all are influenced by thoughts and experiences far beyond our conscious awareness.

This book is an important addition to the lexicon of metaphysical books on spiritual healing. In this day of expanding consciousness, our understanding of the human experience continues to grow. If you’re ready to widen your world view, read Annemiek Douw’s 21 Layers of the Soul.

energetic therapist, trainer and author. Her personal experience with long-term
illness combined with her own work as a healer have led her to understand how
the soul is an internal compass that continuously guides us. She has helped

Secrets of the Auric Field Revealed

  Today, I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 11 of Annemiek Douw’s Virtual Blog Tour.

Annemiek’s book 21 Layers of the Soul: Healing the Karmic Ties with Friends, Lovers, Family and Enemies is celebrating its launch from December 2nd to 16th, 2013 at http://21LayersOfTheSoul.

Yesterday, Annemiek visited Suzanne O’Brien at http://www.reikichicktraining.com/articles/where they discussed distance healing and how to release buried emotions.

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Annemiek when I got to ask her some questions on the process of unblocking Auras. I hope you enjoy it.


DANA: If people ask what you “do,” how do you describe your work?

ANNEMIEK: I usually tell them that I work as a medium and paranormal therapist, and that I’m specialized in working in the Higher Layers of the aura. This means that I heal blockages – energy that has got stuck in the aura. The aura mirrors what happens in your life so if you are ill, have a trauma or find yourself stuck on your Life Path, it is all reflected there. I move my hands in the aura describing what went wrong and why, and I heal and cleanse it – which kind of looks like I am just moving my hands in the air. When the energy starts to flow again, the problem usually vanishes. It heals. In my work I am accompanied by angels, my guides, the client’s guides, other Light Beings and, if necessary, the client’s deceased loved ones.

Of course, I still work as a Management coach too and advise CEO’s on their business decisions, and their personal and professional lives. This perhaps sounds completely different but in fact, I also read the auras of the managers and even the businesses so even then, the advice I give comes from the Souls perspective. Alongside that, I also train other Lightworkers in my field of expertise – the higher layers of the aura.

In conclusion, I work on solving problems, focusing on where they originated instead of working on the symptoms.

DANA: When you work on blockages in people’s auras, what is the process? Do you see clients in person and work on them on a massage table or chair as an energy healer would or is there another method?

ANNEMIEK: When I work with Dutch clients, they come to my practice and have a 2 hour session. First we have some tea and talk about the reason they made the appointment. I ask them what they would like to see resolved. I write it down and sense if there’s anything else that needs my attention. If there is, I’ll ask them specific questions to try and find out more – I might give them an age or a year in their life, describe a person or a situation or even describe the problem that I sense is entwined with a particular blockage. As soon I feel that I have named the important blockages, I ask the client to take off his shoes, move to the massage table, and cover him with a blanket so he can relax as I move my hands and start the healing.

When I work long distance it works slightly differently. When I Skype or call a client, I weave a connection of Light and energy, just like a long umbilical cord between him and me, secure the line and start a similar process to the one I just described. The process is much the same except that it costs way more energy to work remotely because setting up and maintaining the connection takes a lot more, especially when it comes to the higher layers and working with more subtle energies. Personally I prefer Skyping over calling because then I can wear a headset and use both hands and it’s also nice to have a visual connection. It’s more fun. I hope to make Skype sessions available on a regular basis all around the world from March 2014.

DANA: I assume you can’t work on all 21 layers at once. How do you perceive what levels of the auric field need healing?

ANNEMIEK: In a way, that’s quite easy. After talking to the client and naming the problems I already picked up on, the blockages that have been described become active in the aura. I see them change color.

When there’s a blockage, it normally stretches out through several layers – just as a splinter pierces several layers of skin tissue, the blockage pierces multiple layers thus influencing you on several life themes. That’s also why the impact of a blockage can be quite severe. In these situations I start with the part of the ‘aura splinter’ in the highest infected layer and start to remove it. Normally, the rest will follow quite easily. After working with the first splinter I check the ones that remain and go to the next theme and do the same. I just follow the energy.

I have discovered that, during this process, I will come across all the issues that must be healed in this session. Over the years I’ve learned to trust that all I need to do is allow myself to be led by the client’s Soul and just follow his energy. This lets me do exactly what needs to be done in order for him to heal.


I hope you enjoyed this interview with Annemiek Douw and that you’ll check out her beautiful new book 21 Layers of the Soul. Again, you can find it at http://21LayersOfTheSoul.com.


21 Layers of the Soul can help you tap into and master your inner guidance system, to help you navigate to your right path in life. In this book, Annemiek shares more than 100 case histories gathered over 15 years of healing work. During this time she discovered the 21 layers of the aura – something never before revealed in any other healing book. Meticulously analyzed and defined, Annemiek shows us how exploring these layers can provide us with a clear blueprint of the intricate system that leads us to incarnate on the Earth.

If you’re ready to unravel mysteries that have perplexed you for decades – or perhaps even lifetimes – pick up 21 Layers of the Soul and start to navigate the wonderful journey back to your Self.

A Personal Past Life Regression

Part Four in a Series on Past Lives

barren woodsI am finishing up this series on past lives with a segment from my personal journal. Past Life therapy can be achieved in several ways. Hypnotherapists offer past-life regression sessions where clients explore their hidden memories. Akashic Records readers access a spiritual dimension where personal histories are maintained under the supervision of the Guardians of the Records. (See articles on Akashic Records). Lately, I’ve been developing the practice of accessing my own Akashic Records, per the book Akashic Records by Ernesto Ortiz.

Some of my sessions have felt more successful than others. Specific questions need to be addressed when entering the Akashic Records. In this case I asked about a particular life-long relationship. I’ve come to realize that my emotional responses to this person have not necessarily made “sense,” based on the personal history of our acquaintance. So I went through the steps to enter the records and asked: What is the source of the confusing emotions I have toward this person?

Here is the past-life regression I experienced:

Eyes closed, I am traveling through a tunnel. I move quickly past people and places. A scene comes into focus. I am with him wandering through cold, snowy woods. Leafless trees all around. Everything is grey and white. We’re dressed in layers of raggedy clothes, fingers exposed above the wrapping of cloth. We’re trying to get away from danger. We walk over logs and debris, directionless, just getting away.

I’m hungry and tired, in shock. Home and family destroyed in the village behind us to war. We are somewhere in Eastern Europe.

We are teenagers, perhaps brother and sister. I’m not sure. We are close. I am immature in my thinking. It’s all seems unfair. I’m miserable and have only one target to blame at the moment and it is him. He should be keeping me warm, finding food, making us safe. We drag along and I resent him more with each step.

We come to the end of the forest. There is an open field. Dry, barren ground with a crust of frozen ice. As I step forward, a shot rings out. A sharp pain explodes in my chest. I am on the ground. I see his face clearly–high cheekbones over a cleft chin. I feel betrayed, like I shouldn’t have trusted him. I die blaming him. I have bitterness and a belief that I couldn’t count on him.

The lessons from the Akashic Guides flow in. He felt terrible watching me die. The situation wasn’t his fault. It was a lesson on the foolishness of war. That lifetime gave me empathy for people in war torn places.

(Some insights came through about my friend that I will not publish here.)

We both need to release the residue of that life. I set him free from the guilt.

After I close the records and open my eyes, the residual pain from the gun shot in my chest continues for nearly half an hour.

These glimpses of other times and other people are fascinating to experience. I am at once the observer and the observed. I occupy a different body, looking down seeing hands and feet that belong to someone else. I can identify with the personality, but it is no longer “me.” In the above scenario, the girl dies with a lasting impression of distrust and feeling she “can’t count on” her friend. In Lois Wetzel’s fascinating book, Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives, she illustrates many times that the last dying impression from a life can leave a “hangover” effect, coloring subsequent lives and relationships, thus creating a karmic tie that must be faced.

An excursion to the Akashic Records or other means of past life therapy can illuminate many of life’s mysteries, including relationships, medical conditions, phobias, talents, obsessions, and more. In the best cases, the revealed knowledge can be liberating and healing.

Past-Life Therapy is a Thing

Part Three in a series on Past Lives

Science and psychology is now taking a fresh look at the concept of reincarnation and how it may influence our lives. Two doctors, their work, and books have played a large role in the developing field of past life therapy. The books below are now considered “classics” and make for fascinating reading. They may shift your paradigms!

Many Lives, Many Masters by

Brian L. Weiss, M.D.

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’ family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.

Michael Newton, Ph.D

Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls by Michael Newton, Ph.D., contains interviews given by people
under hypnosis discussing their experiences between lives on
earth.  Dr. Newton holds a doctorate in counseling and is a master
