Overviews of Information on Spiritual Hypnosis
1. Highlights from Frontiers of Knowledge. Spiritual hypnosis, especially in the form of between-lives regression, provides us with a new source for exploring the spiritual realm. Between-lives regression subjects appear to have very similar, if not identical, experiences with those found in very strong NDEs with rich experiences of the spiritual realm. More work is needed to explore similarities and differences, but from a first-order comparison, the same phenomenon seems to be present—nonphysical consciousness experiencing itself in a spiritual realm.
2. Blog Postings on past- and between-lives regression
- The last several days I have been reading about some of the developers of past-life regression therapy in volume 1 of Regression Therapy: A Handbook for Professionals. The editor and the major author is Winafred Blake Lucas. The publisher is Transpersonal Publishing. (It is owned by NATH, the hypnotherapy organization that I trained under.) . . .

1. Highlights from Frontiers of Knowledge
Between-Lives spiritual hypnosis is a potential breakthrough development in spirituality because it provides us with a new source of spiritual information. In a between-lives session conducted using Newton’s Life-between-Lives (LBL) method, the hypnotist “guides” the human subject’s soul on a “journey” into and through the spiritual realm. This is fundamentally different than the experiences humans have in past-life sessions where a subject primarily experience having another human life—though one with major spiritual overtones and one where they receive glimpses of their soul nature. .
Dr. Michael Newton, the main developer of LBL, has been able to take spiritual hypnosis to another level beyond past-life regression by perfecting a deep regression technique where he is able to get almost all of his subjects to the soul level and guide the human’s soul in its LBL experiences. His two books, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls are by far the best and most complete source of Life-between-Lives regression information. They represent Newton’s distillation of the experiences of 7,000 visits to the spiritual realm by his subjects. The books read like anthropological expedition reports, which in a sense they are—to another realm.
Newton presents his approach and overall technique for conducting LBL sessions in Life Between Lives: Hypnotherapy for Spiritual Regression. For more information see the Michael Newton Institute, see http://www.spiritualregression.org/
Another source for spiritual hypnosis information is provided by the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH) http://www.holistictree.com/index.htm I received my LBL training from NATH in 2009. In 2001 NATH conducted Newton’s first LBL training. A broader background on spiritual hypnosis is found in Lucas’ Regression Therapy: a Handbook for Professionals – Volume I: Past-Life Therapy.
