Dena Merriam, 5.9.21 - When the Bright Moon Rises - Past lives and Reincarnation
What can we learn from past life memories? One answer could be that death is temporary. The soul shifts form and carries on.
Dena says the memory of her past lives was so vivid she would enter a location and then realize it was familiar and that would trigger vivid scenery and other images of that past incarnation.
When the Bright Moon Rises: The Awakening of Ancient Memories is Dena's third book about her past life memories. She writes in novel form about a love story that spans 10,000 years and she includes the between life time encounters with a spirit guide who offers support and coaching in the interim.
The locations are India and China. We learn through the characters about the history of the eras and what it might be like to experience knowing the purpose of each incarnation and knowing death is not final.
Past life awareness can sometimes offer healing in the present incarnation. Dena's memories from this past life saga have reconnected her to a love of poetry. And now the poems have begun to flow again.
Bio: Dena is a long-time meditation practitioner in the lineage of Kriya Yoga. She came in contact with her guru Paramhansa Yogananda at the age of 20, long after he had left his physical form, and devoted many years to practicing his teachings and studying the texts of the ancient Vedic tradition. During her years of meditation, many vivid memories of past births began to emerge, revealing an intricate and subtle pattern of cause and effect, the law of karmic unfolding.
Dena has been active in the public sphere. Having founded the non-profit organization The Global Peace Initiative of Women in 2002, she has worked to bring spiritual voices to address global challenges.
