August 2015 By TA Balasubramiam Can guided revelations about your past life help you if you are troubled in your present life? Here is evidence that says they can. In Search Of Happiness, Discovering the Soul through Past Lives by Swati R Shiv, Jaico Books, Paperback INR 299; 302 pages “As was evident from this session, Dev‘s soul was far clearer than Dev was in his conscious state on what is productive and what is destructive. The soul, speaking from Dev’s subconscious mind, stated clearly that it wanted power to get justice for the weak, and not for misusing violence. Contradictorily, in his conscious state of mind, Dev considered power and violence as complementary. As a result, he was always in conflict with his subconscious mind. For the first time, Dev experienced his own ideology as distinct from others. He realised with surprise that he, as a soul, had values and beliefs which were not the same as those of his parents or friends.” Dev, a patient with deep mental and emotional conflicts, is the centrepiece of this interesting exploration of hypnotherapy and past-life therapy, the professional practises that the author, Swati Shiv, specializes in. She works with human souls in the same pragmatic way that other physicians work with human bodies. As we learn in the progressive unveiling of the nine past lives of Dev, the long journey of the soul, across many bodies through the ages, leaves imprints at every stage, and many of these imprints continue to build up their karmic pressures in ways that we can scarcely begin to comprehend in our conscious and wakeful lives in the present. This is a richly detailed report of a real-life treatment that is spun out as a running story across 26 chapters. It presents an authentic and rivetting insight into Swati’s deep explorations and work in uncovering the sources of emotional traumas, and enabling troubled people to work through their past lives in order to make peace with their souls and learn the true meaning of happiness. “Happiness for the soul comes from learning to be immune to the dark vibrations so that they don’t succeed in making us negative,” says Swati in the introductory note. In many ways, her life work as a healer and guide for tormented souls is a testimonial for this observation. It is fascinating to observe the interactions and dialogues between Dev and Swati as they step in and out of various phases of Dev’s experiences. If you are interested in agetting a deeper understanding of the therapeutic uses of past-life regression this is a perfect introduction. If you are curious to learn how the incidents of your past lives may provide clues to the unexplained compulsions and occasional emotional turmoil of your present life, this book offers an intriguing glimpse, although the story is about another person. The details of the incidents may differ, but the principles are the same. Souls, after all, have no nationalities or boundaries. -TA Balasubramiam
