Are physical and mental illnesses the result of karma acquired in a past life, and if so, does uncovering that lifetime lead to healing? According to the yearlong research project conducted by author and past-life specialist, Joanne DiMaggio, the answer is yes!  Fifty volunteers, ranging in age from 34 to 74, participated in the project.  They came in suffering from such chronic conditions as arthritis; diabetes; joint and limb pain; head trauma; weight and digestive troubles; sexual dysfunction; skin conditions; liver and kidney issues; drug and alcohol abuse; and mental illness. Employing past-life regression and augmenting the session with soul writing, i.e., writing in an altered state of consciousness, the project sought to find the buried past-life story behind the present-day malady.

The book explores the experiences of 23 of those volunteers, sharing the details of the regression, the transcript of the soul-writing session, and the results of the follow-up interview to determine whether the session resulted in the condition being healed, improved, or remain the same.  The results are fascinating.

Karma Can Be a Real Pain illustrates how ordinary men and women met their past-life aspects and discovered the karmic origin of their chronic condition, resulting in a healthier, happier life in the here and now-and beyond. Karma can be a real pain, but lucky for us, there is a cure!

Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt, is an inspired teacher, a member of the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies, and has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 25 years. She headed her own past-life research center outside of Chicago and brought that to Virginia in 1995. Joanne earned her...

Read from the Book

AcknowledgmentsThis book would not be possible without the fifty men and women who volunteered to be a part of my yearlong research project. While I could not share all of their past-life experiences and discoveries, each of them nonetheless played a significant role and I am grateful for their willingness to embark on this fascinating journey with me.My thanks for author PMH Atwater for her thought-provoking insights and input on the first draft, as well as her urging that I find and express my voice. She is a most wise mentor, an admired colleague, and a dear friend.I am indebted to Karen Davis at the Edgar Cayce Foundation, not only for the time she spent reviewing the Cayce readings in this book for accuracy, but also for her constant support, loving advice, and soul-lifting encouragement. It is always a joy to work with her.I'd also like to acknowledge Dr. C. Norman Shealy, whose opening remarks at a Medical Intuition Conference in Virginia Beach, in which he expressed his belief that there was a connection between illness and past lives, unknowingly flipped on the "idea" light bulb that culminated in this book.But most importantly, I am grateful to Edgar Cayce, whose enduring legacy remains the cornerstone upon which this eager student continues to pursue her soul's work.--Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHtJune 2016

Editorial Reviews

"Karma can manifest as recurring patterns of struggle, relationships that feel a little too familiar, or, as Joanne DiMaggio explores in her new book Karma Can Be a Real Pain, mysterious aches and pains. In an exhaustive year-long study of fifty volunteers, DiMaggio investigated the link between past-life memories and chronic health challenges . . . Karma Can Be a Real Pain delves into the past-life origins of pain. The book is broken down into ailments from diabetes and rheumatism to sex problems and drug addiction and claims that once the past life is explored, the condition improves. Although there is plenty of New Age writing on past lives, it is unusual to find a book that treats the psychological phenomenon with seriousness. DiMaggio's scientific approach is meticulous and thorough . . . Strongly influenced by the work of Edgar Cayce, Karma Can Be a Real Pain is a painstaking record of past-life analysis as it relates to the present day. The addition of soul writing, as a meditative and healing practice, sets the book apart from other groundbreaking works in this genre. DiMaggio's writing is heartfelt and honest, offering hope and new tools to people interested in alternative treatment for chronic illnesses."
