Oprah Winfrey sits down with psychiatrist and bestselling author, Dr. Brian Weiss, an expert in past-life regression therapy. Dr. Weiss describes how he was a pragmatist and traditional psychotherapist until one patient, whom he refers to as “Catherine,” and her experience with reincarnation and past lives changed his life. He describes how the hypnosis work led to his groundbreaking and bestselling book “Many Lives, Many Masters.”
In this episode, Dr. Weiss shares his belief that digging into past lives and exploring reincarnation can help many people heal and overcome fears buried deep in their subconscious. He provides examples of this sort of healing which are outlined in his recent book he co-authored with his daughter, Amy Weiss, called “Miracles Happen: The Transformational Healing Power of Past-Life Memories.”
OPRAH & DR. BRIAN WEISS AIRS SUNDAY, JUNE 2 AT 11AM EST/PST ON OWN: OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK
First Time Patient Goes Into Past Life
Dr. Weiss: I said, go back to the time where your symptoms first began. I thought she’d go back then to the origin. Maybe two, maybe two and a half. But she went back about 4,000 years almost. I didn’t believe in past lives. She didn’t either. And here she was in a different body.
Oprah: Do you recall the first things that she said to you?
Dr. Weiss: She started describing a drowning in water and it didn’t make sense in that sense because I knew she didn’t drown in water in her current life. Here she was with me in her late 20′s. She was fine, that way.
