Many Lives, Many Masters
So I just finished a book entitled “Many Lives, Many Masters”. It was referred to me by a fellow blogger (Amy, of Callapitter -- http://callapitter46.blogspot.com/). Over the holiday break I saw an article in the newspaper about Amy and read every word. Her story inspired me to take this whole Blog thing more seriously and really use it as a tool and as an outlet to express some of what I was feeling.
Amy and I traded emails and she recommended this book. She said it might help alleviate some of my fears and concerns about what I wrote about Jen not being baptized and that I had been…and me not being able to join my true soul mate when I pass someday.
PLEASE keep in mind this is my own personal opinion…
I read the book and was quite intrigued. Basically it deals with the concept of souls being reincarnated and being sent back down to another body so that souls can continue to learn and teach other souls. Me, being me, I am highly skeptical of course. The doctor that wrote the book obtained his findings from a patient whom he hypnotized in an attempt to treat after conventional practices failed. While under hypnosis all this stuff started happening to this patient, stuff that conventional therapy could not explain.
It definitely made me think and questions some things, and it was an interesting read. One concept was that souls reincarnate together. Your grandmother could be reincarnated as your son, daughter, your brother or sister etc. Souls continue to learn and evolve and teach things to other souls. Your physical body is only a placeholder for the soul. The soul then moves on after it has learned the lesson that it was sent to absorb.
An example it speaks about is why Mothers and Fathers are so different then Grandparents or Aunt and Uncles – because their souls have leaned and continue to learn. How a son could despise his Father yet love his Grandfather because the soul inside the Grandfather is learning a different lesson.
What lesson is my soul learning from all of this? What did Jen learn before she passed? I find it hard to believe that Jen had nothing else to learn or teach someone. Like me for instance, or is it that I have to go through all of this to learn some lesson for my soul?
So if this book is true I can look forward to meeting Jen’s soul again and learning and teaching other souls in another life…
The doctor who wrote the book has now “treated” over 4,000 stories of souls from previous lives from all his patients. He has some interesting stories from some of his patients and he openly admits that he was highly skeptical but couldn’t help get hooked on this occurrence.
I would recommend the book for anyone who is looking for answers or who doesn’t like the current answers that are out there. I am keeping an open mind…but I’m not done looking for more answers…

In August of 2009 my wife Jennifer passed away from an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. She was only 38 years old. She left me and our two little girls Abbie and Allie to continue life’s journey.
I promised her that I would NOT become angry and bitter about what happened...in order to do that I am attempting to write to express my thoughts and feelings.
This site is a place where I can express my thoughts, feelings and rants...
