About The Author

Pieter Elsen, author of When Souls Awaken – Real-life accounts of past-life and life-between-lives Regressions, was born in Holland and has lived in five different countries and on three different continents. Born and educated in The Netherlands, Pieter studied five years at the renowned Design Academy in Eindhoven, specializing in Industrial Design. Though he graduated with honors, Pieter felt there was more to life and set out on a 20-year journey of Self Discovery that brought him to France, India, England and finally the United States. Pieter was a Vedic monk for 21 years, of which 11 were spent in India. While there he studied extensively the deep and spiritual philosophy of the East. He uses this experience and knowledge as a therapist and life coach counselor integrating the Western and Eastern schools of thought. He is licensed by the Michael Newton Institute of Life between Lives Regression. 

After coming to the United States he channeled his experience as a gifted motivational speaker and background in philosophy and international cultural diversity into the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy. In 2014, Pieter attained his Ph.D. specializing in Transpersonal and Spiritual Counseling. Pieter’s current focus is on past-life and life-between-lives regression sessions and writes and speaks on this topic, in his blog, and on various shows.

A paradigm shift

As a professional Newton trained regression therapist I highly endorse this book. The author provides a fresh and important new perspective on the Life between Life regression process and provides the reader with a completely new way of thinking about what this 'realm' could be like. It's long overdue and it makes me personally happy that finally somebody capable has been able to formulate it as eloquently.
It is obvious the author is not only a highly qualified and experienced regression therapist but also has a unique background in Eastern thought and scientific thinking, helping him integrate it. As an ardent student of Yoga Philosophy, and someone who conducts past life and life between lives regressions myself, I can assure you in no uncertain terms that what the author shares here is pretty incredible, and of great help to other therapist working in this arena.
Collectively we have come a long way and we have been exposed to new scientific and philosophical ideas. This book brings it all together. A must-read for anybody interested in this topic, be it yogis, therapists, mystics, and metaphysically inclined souls.

I made it to chapter 2.

Please do not associate yourself with THE MASTERS and then write a book of elementary comparison.

If you don't know who Michael Newton is or understand hypnotherapy you may LOVE this book, but if you are expecting something of Michael Newton's capacity...you will be disappointed.

In the 2 chapters I listened to neither presented an actual hypnotherapy session. They may have given lovely analysis of any session, but there was no great hypnosis dialect given to come up with any profound analogy.

Very enlightening

The author was a monk for 20+ years. He later studied at the The Newton Institute For Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy. He runs his own practice following in the footsteps of Michael Newton.

Interesting

I was actually a little unexpectedly bored. The patients had relatively dull lives and mainly wanted to “be free”. Also reaching enlightenment seemed very hard. Absolutely no one remembered a beloved spouse, child, sibling, or parent...nor did they meet one in the “in between”. But there were many words of wisdom.

Change your perspective on why we are here

Loved this book! It made me cry, because I can relate to two clients in this book. It all makes sense now.

Didn't Finish

Just not that good and kind of weird. Didn't give enough background/details on the individuals and their stories.

Very interesting read.

I wish this went more in depth. It was very interesting but shorter than I was hoping for. Great book and well worth a read - I guess I am saying I didn’t want it to end quite as soon as it did.

Too many self-congratulatory philosophical rambles

What can I say? I did not disagree with the sentiments expressed in this book, however if you were expecting something akin to the brilliant Michael Newton's "Destiny of Souls" / "Journey of Souls" (as I was, given the name-dropping in the books description) then I fear you will be as disappointed as I was. Or at the very least; very, very VERY bored. Out of the seven and a half hours of the book's narration, probably less than an hour is dedicated to actual accounts of "life between lives". And there are no real accounts into the "day-to-day" life of spirit in the after-life, which I found so compelling and inspiring in Michael Newton's literature. Instead, the author presents a seemingly endless lecture on how you should be living your life, so that you too can have as smug a soul as he has.
The book has the headline: "Real-life accounts of past-life and life-between-lives regression", so I don't think it was unreasonable to expect the narrative to be driven by this sentiment. However, while the author presents his "cases" / clients as Michael Newton does, instead of presenting a narrative of how souls interact with their environment and each other once they reach the "other-side", Elsen rather uses them to introduce endless lectures on changing the paradigm; money doesn't make you happy... we should work less and live simpler lives... practice yoga... meditate... spend time with our families,,, not eat spicy / fast food... Blah. Blah. Blah. Ad nauseum. Other than "Kim" (all the way in chapter 16), who presents a mildly interesting account of a past-life as a female with foresight, these cases amount to a disappointing repetition of people connecting with their "higher self" and discovering that they should live a simpler, more spiritual life. Or you get to listen to souls having cosmic orgasms saying they don't have the words to describe what's happening to them. Which is dandy, but it doesn't make for a great read. Each client's "experience" per chapter accounts for roughly 5-10 minutes of the narration, with 30-40 minutes then dedicated to monotonous metaphors and ramblings about eastern spiritualism, and over-explanations of simple concepts. Oh - and did he mention his time as a Vedic monk? Only about 1000 times.
As previously stated, whilst I am not in disagreement with the sentiments expressed in the book, I began to find it all a bit self-congratulatory and preachy. It was not my intention to sit through a seven hour lecture, and whilst I couldn't fault the penmanship, I would not have purchased the audio-book was the real narrative (basically we should live a more spiritual life) made clear in the description. Ironic that the author should preach such spiritually enlightened ideals and then deceive readers into purchasing a book by way of name-dropping Michael Newton and his processes, when there are almost no real accounts of "life between lives" presented, other than the odd vague reference to a life-review following death (brilliantly described in Michael Newton's books). In fact, in an act of rebellion myself against the tedium and strife it took to finish this book, I was left with a desire to get drunk, eat a spicy takeaway curry, buy something expensive and unnecessary, and not take my bin in just to annoy my fellow man.

Enlightening for Awakening

Narration really brought the sessions to life so you felt like you were in the room witnessing each soul awakening. Inspired me personally to trust my life and purpose and soul path. Beautifully written.
