5.0 out of 5 stars A tantalising glimpse of future possibility, 10 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Exploring the Eternal Soul: Insights from the Life Between Lives (Paperback)
This book covers all stages of the interlife experience from the immediate post death state to the process of descent into incarnation. After death, the human consciousness, which the author calls the soul, sheds its dense lower sheaths in a process he calls "delayering". Once free of the baggage of the life just spent, the "soul" enters a peaceful state from where it is able to objectively view the lessons learnt (or otherwise) during its sojourn on the physical plane. A review is given by means of "books" which, when opened, give a video presentation of the critical points of the last incarnation and the soul is helped, with the aid of a Spirit Guide and advanced beings called Elders, to plan for the life to come. Finally is described the descent into a new incarnation where the soul hovers around the baby developing in the womb, drifting in and out of the body as it attempts to adjust to a new life on the physical plane.

In incarnation, the "soul" is extended, with part of it remaining in the interlife state while the rest descends to the physical plane. No actual split occurs and, apparently, communication between the two spheres of activity continues. Part of the future life planning process involves decisions as to the relative proportions of the parts of this extension with the more experienced people needing to bring down less "soul" than their less experienced brethren.

Interlife Regression came about as the result of errors made in the conduct of Past Life Regressions where an imprecise command from the therapist sent the patient not to a past life as he had intended but into a period between. This error lead to a whole new area of research and one wonders what insights future errors will reveal. We are apt to think of past life memories as fixed recordings which cannot be altered after the event, but I wonder if something else is at work here. Jack Hammond, while discussing percentage soul division with his spirit guide, Garth, gives us an inkling as where this type of therapy might be leading:

Therapist: What percentage do you finally agree to take down?
Hammond: Eighty percent.
Therapist: And what does Garth think about that?
Hammond: He's nodding his head.

What? Did Garth (in the interlife period before the current one) anticipate the therapist's question?

Ditto Laura Harper:
How much are you going to take down?
Thirty-five percent.
What does your guide say about that?
She thinks I'm mad.

Mediumistic practise has, to date, been viewed with suspicion by the scientific community on the grounds that it cannot be verified by a third party but here we have a therapist (apparently) communicating directly with a patient's spirit guide.

Andy Tomlinson writes in a way which takes the labour out of reading. Consequently the usual excuses for not progressing from cover to cover in one sitting - eating, sleeping and possibly fornicating - are nullified. Even if we have no personal interest in Interlife Therapy this book gives a useful (and painless) update on the state of the art and a tantalising glimpse of future possibility.
