It may be reasonably assumed that Dr. Goldberg, through his writings, TV appearances, and conference presentations, is no stranger to our readers. In The Search for Grace, he presents a fascinating case study involving a patient whom Goldberg eventually regressed to a total of 46 past lifetimes. In an amazing example of karmic reoccurring connections, it was discovered that she (a female in her present life) had been murdered in 20 of these past lives by the same man with whom she presently found herself involved in yet another abusive relationship.
While cases involving the “connectedness” of two individuals in multiple lifetimes are a phenomenon well-known to past-life therapists, the scope of this patient’s repetitive pattern spanning 46 lifetimes is both unusual and significant. What is even more significant for those for whom validation and “proof” are important is the rather extensive documentation which Goldberg presents to the reader. This is particularly true of the most recent past lifetime of the patient, whom he calls “Ivy,” in which she, as Grace Doze, was murdered in 1927. The historical accuracy of the information presented by Goldberg’s patient during the regression to her life as Grace Doze was well-documented by researching newspapers as well as other public and police records of the time.
