Excerpt provided by Syndetics

Chapter One The Nine Other Lives of Raymond Moody My lecturing on the subject of near-death experiences has always led to questions about other extranormal phenomena. When the time comes to take questions from the audience, a good percentage of them are likely to involve things like UFO abductions, spoon bending, hauntings, and past-life regression. Not only were all of these subjects out of my realm of study, but they were somewhat embarrassing for me. After all, none of them have anything to do with near-death experiences. To begin with, near-death experiences (NDEs) are profound spiritual events that happen, uninvited, to some individuals at the point of death. They are generally accompanied by one or more of the following symptoms: an out-of-body experience, the sense of zooming up a tunnel toward a bright light, seeing long-dead relatives at the other end of the tunnel, and having a life review that is guided by a Being of Light. NDEs have little to do with the many other paranormal phenomena that I was frequently quizzed about after lectures. They represented other fields of study in which I had truly little interest. That included past-life regressions. I had always presumed that these voyages back through time were a product of the subject's fantasy and nothing more. It was my guess that people daydreamed them or that they represented some bizarre kind of wish fulfillment. I assumed that most of the people who were successfully regressed found themselves to be an exotic character, such as Egyptian royalty. When asked about past lives, it was difficult for me to hide my skepticism. I first heard about past-life regressions from Ian Stevenson, a professor at the University of Virginia. He is a psychiatrist and an expert in psychosomatic medicine who has investigated reincarnation tales gathered from around the world. Typically they are tales told by young children who spontaneously "remember" past lives. Stevenson had at one time performed some hypnotic regressions and decided that they were very unreliable methods of looking into the question of reincarnation. He believed that the patient was reproducing something he or she had learned or heard about in years past and was now-while under hypnosis-merely projecting it outward. There the matter stood until I met Diana Denholm. She is a lovely and persuasive psychologist who used hypnosis in her practice. Originally she used it to help people stop smoking, lose weight, and even to find lost objects. But some strange things had happened, she said. Every once in while, a patient would start talking about experiences from a past life. Most of the time these events occurred when she took people back through their lives to recover a lost, traumatic memory, a process known as age regression therapy. This technique would help them find the source of phobias or neuroses that were creating problems. Their intent was to take a person back through their current life, layer by layer, to uncover a psychological trauma in much the way an archeologist digs through the layers of time at an archeological site to uncover relics. The intention of regression therapy was not to go beyond the date on the patient's birth certificate, just far back in their current life. But occasionally, patients would slip back even further than seemed possible. They would suddenly begin talking about another life, place, and time as though it were right there before their very eyes. For instance, a woman who was having trouble responding to her husband's sexual needs might go to a hypnotherapist like Denholm to see if there was any sort of forgotten abuse in her childhood that would make her sexually reticent. But in the process of regression, she might suddenly begin describing a past life in which she is a sexually abused slave girl in the roaring Roman Empire.
