“Four women, one fractured life”
This book introduced me to the concept of regression. What is regression you ask? Well according to Google regression is:
Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions or a type of confabulation.
“I have loved and I have lost. I am strong. I live on.”
Jenny McClain is about to turn thirty and she thought she’d have her life figured out by now.She fears she isn’t lovable and is unable to get a grip on her life. At her best friend Hadleys’ advice she goes to see Meara- a Regression Therapist who helps her get in touch with her “Higher Self” and helps her find out about her previous lives: Adala – a Jewish girl living in Germany during the Holocaust , Menodora – who witnessed the sinking of Atlantis and Erin an immigrant in America making ends meet.
I had a wonderful time reading this book. Not only was it entertaining it kept me hooked till the last page. I loved how Jennifer L. Kelly fleshed out all of Jennys’ past lives and made them seem so real. My favourite was Menodora- I really liked reading about Atlantis and its demise and how sometimes we need to listen to our hearts above anything else.
“If you could learn the peaceful act of accepotance, and in that simple choice to accept the conditions as they have come, then and only then will each of you find the ability to forgive.”
Finally,this book teaches us the important lesson to Accept and Forgive so that we can live a fullfilling and peaceful life without fear or remorse. It teaches us the beauty of living in the moment and making the best of what we have.Sometimes in order to make ourselves better we need to look deep into our souls and untangle our demons from the light that shines bright within each of us.
“…then the universe was a place abundant with love. Love without conditions. As soon as you put conditions on it,she thought, that’s when everything changes. Unconditional love was the kind that stuck with you through multiple lifetimes.”
I’m so glad to be given a chance to read this book, I’ll definitely be reading more of her work in the future.
