Episode 5 The Spirit Realm
In this final episode of our Past Life Regression mini-series, we talk about the multi-layers of the spirit realm. Doug's many years of PLR work has given him a special insight into the spirit realm and he gives us a very interesting and original interpretation of the 'inter-life space'. In particular, we discuss his views on what happens to the soul when we go into the light at the end of a past life. In this episode Doug makes the following references: The late Elisabeth Kübler-Ross was a Swiss-American psychiatrist,  pioneer in near-death studies, and author of best-seller 'On Death and Dying', where she first discussed her theory of the five stages of grief, aka the "Kübler-Ross model". Philosopher, psychologist, physician and author Raymond Moody, is most widely known for his books about life after death and near-death experiences, a term he coined in 1975 in his best-selling book Life After Life.  The American's research explores what happens when a person dies. Psychology Professor Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., is  an authority on near-death experiences on which he has written about extensively including the best selling 'Lessons From The Light'.
