The Editor read John's book and I really enjoyed it.
His book is titled My Autobiographies. That’s because it is not just a book about John’s current life. It's about his past lives as well . I found I wanted to know more about him as well as the topic of past life exploration.
But first, what is a past life? Simply put, it is about reincarnation: the possibility that you and I have had previous lives.
You've probably heard it said that the planet we live on is called Earth School. Some say you might have to live up to 800 lives before you have learned all you need to know to graduate and not have to be on this earth anymore.
Using that assumption as a stepping off place, reincarnation means that each of us have had all kinds of physical bodies. We have been male and female, all levels of intelligence, all levels of society, rich to poor with many opportunities to be and learn different lessons. You'll see that by the lives that John recounts in his book. John goes on to suggest that humanity is in the process of evolution to a new species he terms Homodeus, God Man.
John’s book invites readers to consider that past life exploration can help identify the root cause of the challenges we experience and don't know why. I was talking to a friend who recently had a past life session and she was so thankful that she did. The past life she uncovered was not a very happy life. It had many hardships and she died young. Her past life experience helped her to understand her need to have lots of food and belongings in the house. She said the session helped her have more awareness about her life and opened up a new way of thinking about the challenges she faces.
Each chapter in John’s book is about a past life he reports experiencing through hypnotic regression. All had a lesson for him. And at the end of each chapter he sums up the life with a beautifully written poem. John calls these Screams of Consciousness.
John’s intention is that readers be inspired to investigate their own past lives. One of the book’s readers put it this way “What started off as a fun little reading adventure quickly turned into profound questions and realizations about my own current incarnation.”
Who is John Koenig?
First, he is a Board Certified Hypnotist and Instructor with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the world’s largest association of professional hypnotists. He has a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and as Master’s in literature. John told me that he always had a fascination by the mind and consciousness and has read widely on spiritual topics, meditated and studied with a variety of teachers since he was a teenager.
How did John get into Hypnosis?
In his late 20’s and 30s John was a Madison Avenue copywriter and a colleague went to a hypnotist to enhance creativity. Since his colleague claim to get great results, John went to the same practitioner and found that hypnosis helped him come up almost effortlessly with good advertising concepts.
He was sold on the power of hypnosis and took courses to become a Certified Hypnotist in the late 1970s. Today John sees himself as a catalyst for people who are ready to make a big change in their lives using hypnotism and past life regression. He practices hypnosis and past life facilitation in Rhode Island and post-covid on ZOOM anywhere in the US.
There are many books on reincarnation and past lives. Start with Brian Weiss’ Many Lives Many Masters and Michael Newton’s Journey of Souls. Also Dolores Cannon has many books about past lives and a new phrase to many - future lives.
