In Returning From the Light, Brad Steiger brings us his many years of writing and research as well as the personal experiences of himself and of those that he interviewed. Steiger discusses and demonstrates the many benefits of using past lives to understand and heal our present lifetime challenges of all kinds.
Steiger starts the book by discussing his own thirty-six year phobia for flying, a serious phobia which had no apparent cause and greatly interfered with his need to fly to promote his books. It was only after a spontaneous past-life recall one night in 1972, when he experienced himself as a German pilot in World War I who was killed in aerial combat, that he was able to start to heal his unexplained and overwhelming fear of flying.
Steiger has never been afraid to deal with the unusual and controversial: In this book he discusses situations where more than one person claims to be a famous historical person, such as Mark Twain or Joan of Arc. He also deals with apparent memories from other worlds and dimensions, including people who claim to have memories of past lives as extraterrestrials, refugee aliens from other worlds, pure energy essences, or reptilian humanoids.
