Author Noel A. Brand first met Marie Le Claire, a spirited young Frenchwoman, in July of 2013. Over the course of several interviews with Brand, she shared stories of her life—and of her death in the eighteenth century. Marie is, in fact, a past-life persona of Brand’s present-day wife, Diane.
In this biographical study, Brand recalls how he came to discover this relationship and what that discovery meant for Diane. He first explores his own background and considers the process of accessing past lives, as well as how past lives may influence people’s present existence. He then shares Marie’s life story, an engaging tale that is surprisingly relevant to the struggles of women today. Finally, he discusses the connection between Marie and Diane, providing practical exercises for the reader to use in their own past-life discovery.
This personal narrative presents an exploration of past lives through the stories of a young woman from eighteenth-century France and the modern-day Australian to whom she is connected.
