I was asked about the outcome of Marilyn Monroe’s Reincarnation. Here it is! It appears in Marilyn Monroe Returns: The Healing of a Soul:


After this last round of regressions in Toronto in mid-November, my wife and I flew back to L.A. I had a few rescheduled sessions with patients as part of my holistic psychiatric practice and a last stretch of teaching grad students before the 2005 holiday break. I felt pleased not only with the high level of Sherrie’s regressions but also with her and Kezia’s cooperation and willingness to just “bite the bullet” when it came to unearthing and dealing with the awful trauma of Marilyn’s life and the legacy passed on to Sherrie in this life. I knew from years of experience with regression patients that, like childhood trauma

or sexual abuse, facing the music was the first step, which I facilitated, but releasing the experience and integrating the raw emotional energy was the all-important second step that was mostly in her hands.

Immediately upon my return, an initial flurry of e-mails was exchanged between Sherrie and me. The floodgate of past-life memories and dreams, from her Marilyn life and also as Louise de la Valliere, began to open—a sure sign of the healing process, especially when they were dominated by “good” memories, not traumatic ones. It was as if she was coming to terms with Marilyn, loving her and saying goodbye. Interestingly she had a dream of Laurence Olivier, which was more like “Larry” sending his regards than an actual dream. [People who lose loved ones often have similar dreams the night of or day after their passing, which I’ve always classified as “direct contact” with the spirit of the deceased person.]

One troubling note was Sherrie’s initial preoccupation with the Marilyn Internet sites and her ongoing battle to prove her case to a mostly doubting and derisive audience. Having to prove herself instead of accepting her Marilyn legacy could’ve complicated the progress of her healing. However, a positive response from several of the site members seemed to put this obsession into perspective, and Sherrie backed off and redirected her energy toward her life and career, the healthiest sign of all. She was writing new songs at this point and managing a band, and her relationship with Kezia was flourishing. Kezia was becoming less the “mom” and more the good friend, a sign of her own healing. She didn’t need to be regressed to resign herself to the fact that she had been Gladys Baker, Sherrie’s mother in their last life together.

The holiday season couldn’t come too soon. Conducting this research project and ongoing therapy over the past nine months had taken me away for long periods of time from my wife and family. Added to the hours of research, preparation, and two rounds of regressions in a foreign city was the now daunting undertaking of rewriting the first draft of my manuscript by the end of January 2006. Having Thanksgiving dinner with my

daughters and their families put my ambitions for my project into perspective: Nothing was more important than my love for my wife and my children.

As I had mentioned earlier, therapy doesn’t happen in a vacuum: “Physician, heal thyself” had never been more of a pressing issue than during the course of this research, with its many issues and heartstrings being pulled at many levels. Taking on such a time-consuming research project at this stage in my life put a strain on all of my relationships, family and friends alike, but if it were not for their loving support I could never have seen my way through the difficulties it presented.

As the new year approached, full of prospects for both Sherrie and me and our book project, the constant stream of e-mails from her began to ease off. She was standing on her own two feet and dealing with her everyday problems, now less complicated without the “monkey on her back,” as she would say. The process of her integration in my experience would no doubt take months and even years of work, but I felt strongly that Sherrie now had the distance and the tools to deal with her past-life trauma and get

on with her life. Like those marred by childhood abuse, one never really “gets over” it; one learns to deal with chaotic emotions and not let them rule you.

I know the launch of our book in the upcoming months and the reactions to it will bring a whole new set of challenges for both of us. I can only hope the process of our mutual healing over the past year will prepare us to “put it all” in perspective and not let it run us. I am secure in the fact that with more than thirty years of past-life regression work I can say unequivocally that Sherrie Lea Laird is the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. I can also say that in my experience the course of our regression work together has literally saved her life, if not from certain death by her own hands or through neglect, but from years of continued torment, including drug and alcohol abuse.

I can only hope, which has always been the secondary goal of this research project—the first and foremost of course being the healing of a soul—that this sensational case and the course of its exposition in these pages will open people and especially those in the healing arts to the potential for past-life regression therapy. It may be a good first step if only those troubled by recurrent emotional problems without clear antecedents in this life, and those entrusted with their care, would consider the mere possibility of trauma carried over from a past life. This doesn’t necessarily need to lead to full regression therapy; just the acknowledgment can work wonders and open up paths to healing through more conventional methods.

And in conclusion, I would be remiss in my duties as a physician and metaphysician if I were not to mention that the underlying theme of this work, as it has been in every past-life case that I’ve treated, is the truth of reincarnation and what it means to our troubled world. We have each of us walked in the shoes of people of every race, nationality, creed, and gender—rich and poor, the abuser and the abused—as we evolve our souls to the point that we realize that there is only one life, God’s life, and that we only kill, maim, and bomb ourselves, or the God in each of us. The message that Marilyn/Sherrie brings to the world is: Love yourself and each other, and in this way heal yourself, and thus live in

peace and experience God’s Joy.”

I think this answers very briefly the inquiries I’ve received from many, about the outcome of the story of Marilyn’s reincarnation and healing…
