Guinevere: The True Story of One Woman's Quest for Her Past Life Identity and the Healing of Her Eternal Soul

Front Cover
"How could Laurel Phelan, a stunning twenty-one-year-old Vancouver bookkeeper/secretary beset by violent nightmares, know that the cause of her dreams began nearly 1,500 years ago? When conventional remedies failed, Laurel sought the alternative method of hypnotherapy and past life regression. The results, spanning many lives and generations, led Laurel to Dark Age Britain and to a shocking discovery - in a past life, Laurel Phelan had been Queen Guinevere. Unwilling, as anyone would be, to accept this, she tried to get on with her life...but her frightening dreams persisted, and she decided she must confront them." "Using her knowledge of past life regression therapy, Laurel traveled back to her previous life to try to make peace with the woman she once was. As Laurel's life flows into Guinevere's, we discover that the true Guinevere was a woman of extraordinary qualities - a ravishing, fierce warrior, beautiful and charismatic, dedicated to protecting her people from harm. Suppressing her emotions and her female instincts, she chose not to have children because she wanted to be a leader. At the end of her tumultuous life, she was gifted with profound insights; what she discovered resonates dramatically in the lives of women today. Guinevere didn't need to emulate men in order to be powerful. The true path to potency, creativity, and love is to draw on the secret depths of our feminine selves - as warriors for our causes, nurturers, advisors, and bearers of life." "Laurel Phelan's present life has been profoundly affected by her experiences as Guinevere. She chose a new career as a past life regression therapist, harnessing the creative energy that leads to emotional and spiritual healing. Happy, successful, and more personally fulfilled than ever before, Laurel has one deep wish - to share her inspiring revelations with others. Her brave journey into her past proves that we can triumph over death, heal the pain and resolve the torment of previous lives, and renew ourselves limitlessly in the full and fertile circle of female experience. GUINEVERE is exhilarating testimony to the eternal wellsprings of life that ultimately guide us all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
