On today’s program, we’ll meet Stephanie Riseley, who is a certified hypnotherapist with more than 30 years of experience, a past life regression therapist, and the author of “Love from Both Sides.” Stephanie’s interest in healing began as a teenager. When she was 18, she suddenly became ill and suffered immense pain throughout her body. One day, while experiencing excruciating chest pains, Stephanie had a near death experience (NDE), during which she travelled to a plane she refers to as the “in between.” “I do cognitive-behavioral modification, awareness therapy, and narrative therapy, which is what past-life regressions would be called. And how I happened to be in this field of healing, which I've been in for about 18 years, is when my husband died in my arms. I had my hand on his heart, and his heart stopped. And then he whipped through me, yelling, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.’ This is not therapy. ‘I'm going to get you to figure out what it is that your soul’s purpose is.’ From my point of view, we all have a purpose. We all incarnate to learn different lessons. And it's not just one lesson. Most of the lesson is to learn to forgive.”

Many people believe that each soul occupies only one body. But in Her discussion with disciples on April 27, 2000 in Auckland, New Zealand, Supreme Master Ching Hai revealed a fascinating fact about souls. “You know the nature of the soul is not that ‘I am here and I have one soul in here’ – it’s not like that! My soul is bigger than just in here. It might be all over here, it might be all me, but it looks different. I know, I know... It’s not like, OK, ‘God is one and everybody is one with God’ – it’s not in that sense. It’s in the sense that one individual can have a great soul that encompasses many so-called bodies. So we can happen to identify, just like each other. Just like sometimes we have two persons, but they think exactly the same thing at the same moment. That is because that is one soul, not because they are one with God or they are one with each other, but they are one soul, just like twins, you see. They’re like soul mates, something like that.”
