Frank Colatosti was kind enought o send me this on October 27th, 2011 He was the hypnotherapist who inspired the group in London where Bill and Maggie first realize they knew each other in a past life. His e-mail address is available at the bottom of this post.
OUR MEETING.....I first met M.C.V. Egan, Catalina when she participated in one of my group past life regressions in September of 2010. Yes, they do occur and Catalina had a great experience, seeing herself as a woman of means, about a hundred years ago, traveling a great deal with vivid memories of Easter Island. Catalina mentioned that she had been researching a book for 18 years and that if she lived during the period of the book, she would love to have a private past life regression to that time period so as to obtain additional back ground. About a month latter Catalina did indeed regress to that period and was very close to one of the main characters of the story. I won't say who the individual was; I will leave that for Catalina to share if she chooses. As a result, she obtained additional details on that time period, with a personal connection.
THE BOOK.....It was interesting knowing a few details of the story prior to the book being published. It was fascinating to read how Catalina intertwined non-fiction and fiction to create a wonderful tale; twisting history and fantasy into a great story. Using past life regression, as a tool to blend truth and make believe.
THE AUTHOR.....Catalina Egan an outgoing, vivacious, intelligent woman , with a great sense of humor, much more fun than the Catalina of the book. Yes she worked on this story for 18 years, but she lived her life to the fullest as she did. As a past life hypnotist I look for karmic patterns. I see Catalina as someone who was close to one of the main characters and didn't accept the official reports of the crash at the time and choose to be born as the grand daughter of another main character to shed light on what really happened. There are few coincidences in life; we typically don't know the entire story.
Thank you Catalina for wonderful adventure, I'm looking forward to your next story. Please don't wait 18 years however.
