From the Author
This story cries out,"Don't let this horror happen again!!"
As a past-life hypnotherapist I put the client into trance and take them back to another lifetime that helps explain problems in this lifetime. This was one of my most fascinating cases, and certainly one of the most difficult to perform. A young 22-year old girl had been traumatized and overwhelmed by a sudden rush of memories that had no rational explantion. She walked into her living room one day, and saw a program was on the TV where survivors of the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima were being interviewed. There were no scenes of the bombing, only the interviewer talking to the guests. That was why her reaction was so strange. She was suddently overwhelmed by scenes flashing through her mind of the horror of the bombing. She could hear the screams and feel the pain. She KNEW she had been present when the event occurred as a Japanese man, and that she did not die immediately, but lived for about a week. She turned off the TV, but she could not turn off the scenes of absolute horror that flooded her mind. This presisted for two days. She thought she was going crazy, because it didn't make any sense. She knew she had not been a man in Japan. She had not even been alive during the war. So nothing made any sence. She managed to push it to the back of her mind so she could function. This was when she sought my help. - - The book is the story of how we carefully traced her life as a Japanese man living during the war in Hiroshima. It tells the story of what the Japanese people experienced during the war. This is a side of history that has not been explored or written about. It was my most difficult case because I was unsure of how she would react to reliving dying in an atomic explosion. It had to be handled with extreme care. The resulting story cries out to our time, "Do not let this horror happen again!" It is very appropriate now that India and Pakistan are doing atomic research, and considering using this type of weapon again. Many people today do not know the horror the last atomic bombs created.- - Dolores Cannon

Katie was sure that she had lived a previous life in Japan during the second World War and experienced the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima. Cannon accessed the life in question and got the man, Nogorigatu, to describe his life, wedding, family and Japanese life and customs in general. She wanted to gradually approach the fateful day, August 6, 1945, since Katie had been extremely apprehensive about having to face and live through this memory.
Nogorigatu proved to be a sensible, peace-loving man who made and decorated pots and sold them at the market. Eventually, the war begins and N starts to feel its effects on the town. The troops mistreat the people and steal their food. The population is on the brink of starvation. People, including N's daughters, are forced to work in factories. His sons are sent off to war, his wife dies.
We get to know and care for this gentle Japanese man. The book becomes deeply moving. When the bomb is dropped, we experience this shocking event through N's consciousness as though we were there. A great flash, and rolling winds like fire. Screams. A giant cloud.Suddenly all the buildings simply vanish. The city disappears in a moment. There is nowhere to run for safety or shelter. People's skins and hair are burnt off. They become black like Negroes. Their lungs are burnt.
This was a totally shocking experience, also for the reader. N takes about a week to die.
Afterwards, Cannon conducts research to confirm what she has learnt through the regression. There had been no need to drop this horrific bomb - the Japanese government was in fact attempting to initiate surrender, since the people were dying of starvation and the country was falling apart. It had apparently been a sort of experiment on the part of the American government.
No flyers were dropped warning the people to get out of town on the day in question, though some had been dropped on other towns to be bombed in the normal way. Truman who was President at the time thought it was acceptable to refrain from issuing any warning by way of revenge subsequent to the "sneak" attack on Pearl Harbour. (But it should be noted that it was the political leaders that made the decision to bomb Pearl Harbour, and it was thousands of ordinary men, women and children that got the atomic bomb thrown on top of them.)
Like Cannon, I had never really thought about the suffering of the Japanese subsequent on the dropping of these atomic bombs. Now I have thought about this.
The book is important precisely because it makes us realize what a gruesome decison it was to drop these bombs. How could we carry out these inhumane deeds?
Everyone should read this book.
This case reveals startling information about the Japanese side of the war. Research into the bombing also revealed terrible truths that the American public was not aware of at the time of this dramatic ending to World War II.
But this is one person's memories of what happen to him before the Bomb & afterwards & his Family.It's story of his life,
It is beautifully written & you actually feel that you are experiencing what he is/has
But above all, it just show what the horrors of War & the effects it has on the innocent people who suffered from it.
It is so sad
