I proudly stand on their shoulders –
My metaphysical teachers over the years….
I truly believe that no one does anything alone. As a teacher, clinician and author, I am always aware of the debt I owe to those who came before me. Those I learned from, either directly or through their work. Here are a few names who have helped me shape my work – the learnings, writings, and teachings.
I first encountered Shirley MacLaine when she read my first book Return and wanted to interview me for her radio show. Since then I have spent time with her in person and on air, and am inspired by her endless curiosity about life, here on this planet, other planets, and dimensions. She is intrigued by all things human, political, animals and the circle of lives we live. I have learned and continue to learn from her…with grateful thanks. I am also honoured to host her chat room from time to time on her radio show – which is where it all started!
I encountered Irene Hickman when she was past president of the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association. I had read her books, “Mind Probe – Hypnosis,” and “Remote Depossession,” in 1994 and began to study her work on Spirit Depossession. Irene pioneered the development in remote work. The advantage of using a professional scanner over direct work is that it bypasses any resistance from any attachment that is with the client. With her permission I took her work and started training other advanced hypnotists in this modality. I miss her down-to-earth approach to issues, but believe I still receive her guidance.
Dr. Newton is the author of three best-selling books: “Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives (1994), “Destiny of souls: New Case Studies of Life Between Lives (2000), and Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy (2004) published by Llewellyn. He is also the editor of Memories of the Afterlife (2009) which includes a case study written by myself, plus other case studies written by members of the TNI’s global network. March 2006 was the last training Michael gave personally, and I travelled to The Swan Hotel in England to take the training and receive the accreditation. (I still have his autograph on my workbook!)
Henry Bolduc had 45 years of research and experience in past life exploration before he sadly died in 2011. He was a beloved friend, teacher and mentor. He is the teacher who taught me – beyond everyone else – to get ego out of the way and let the work flow through you. One of his favourite quotes from Edgar Cayce was, “just be kind and patient.” He was a truly generous soul encouraging us all to carry his work forward through our best selves. He honoured me by adopting my “Code of Ethics” into his teachings and encouraged my writing and regression work at every turn. Other hallowed names in my library and learning opportunities came from the works of the Master of all hypnotists, Omond McGill, the father of NLP, Milton Erickson, and the granddaddy of all this work, Edgar Cayce. Plus, of course, my students, and my clients – I learn from them all.
I am blessed.
