Book Reviews - Healing across lifetimes
by T. A. Basubramanian
When Walt Whitman wrote, “I am large, I contain multitudes”, he was probably imagining the many layers of our subconscious that work like wheels within wheels, sometimes reaching back through time across many lives. Blossom Furtado, the writer of this book, would entirely agree.
She is a trainer, teacher, coach and therapist with more than 25 years of experience in the study of the mind and the metaphysical world. As a specialist in the area of regression and transpersonal work and in accessing the subconscious, she is on a mission to nurture 'a healer in every family'. Her goal is to get you to realise experientially that everything that you need is already available deep inside you – waiting to be uncovered under proper guidance.
Presented in 59 short chapters across five sections, Holistic Living compiles the evidence for this belief not merely from theories, but in vivid anecdotes and dialogues drawn from the author’s own experiences in therapy sessions. Here she shows us – through a variety of real-life cases drawn from her files – that tapping into one’s past using techniques like hypnotherapy and regression offers real solace to many people.
Indeed, we are drawn to notice that perhaps many of life’s mysterious ailments and afflictions that some of us go through are like spools of yarn going back into the past, including prior lifetimes – an intricate concealed web of karmic processes.
Furtado has dedicated her life to unravelling – or bringing to closure – these hidden webs for her clients – and going by the variety of cases, the many ‘cures’ that she has brought about offer testimony to the curative aspects of “completing” suspended past experiences by working through them or by simply coming to terms with their far-reaching impact in the present.
For those seeking to find a way to resolve mysterious or inexplicable states of distress or baffling physical illnesses, there may be clues to an alternative way in these case studies. If you are just curious about phenomena like past-life influence or the subconscious, this book offers many intriguing glimpses, and would probably stimulate you to explore further.
