An Interview with Dr. Fuqua
“Dr. Fuqua presents an insightful and compelling look at how past lives may influence our relationships, our spiritual growth, and the evolution of the soul. A fascinating read!”
I’m pleased to be doing this interview with my good friend, Dr. Evelyn Fuqua, Ph.D., MFT. Dr. Fuqua was a teacher and counselor in the public schools for thirty-three years and on the Board of Directors for the Association of Past Life Regression Therapy for six years. Dr. Fuqua, was in private practice in Rocklin, California, and is an international authority on Past Life Regression Therapy and Walk-In Phenomena. She has been a presenter at numerous professional conferences and a guest on many national radio Talk Shows, including the popular Coast to Coast AM Radio Show. She is the author of From Sirius to Earth: A Therapist Discovers a Soul Exchange,
She just released her second book, Cosmic Relationships: Exploring the Soul's Journey from Off-Earth, Earth Lives, and Reincarnation, a uniquely personal approach to understanding human relationships. Dr. Fuqua explores the past lives of herself and her four husbands. In this fascinating study, she seeks to give credence to her belief that there is no conflict between evolution and creationism.
I met Evelyn nine years ago, in 2003, while doing research on past lives via the Internet and discovering we lived in the same area at the time, we quickly became good friends.
Linda: Evelyn, I’m pleased to be doing this interview with you so my readers can learn about you, and your fascinating work. Tell us who or what has influenced your interest and studies in past lives and how your professional work led you into past life regression.?
Evelyn: Back in 1981 when I was receiving the training necessary to conduct hypnosis as a Marriage, Family Therapist, I had a client who was deeply depressed, even suicidal at times. There was nothing in this lifetime that seemed to explain her problems so I asked her if she was willing to try going back into a past life. Since she was desperate, she agreed. I had become interested in past lives when I became a Rosicrucian and met a group of Rosicrucian ladies who were firm believers in reincarnation. While I thought this was an interesting concept, I was still a skeptic when I regressed this particular client.
Linda: Before we go on to tell us more about your new book, please tell us a little about your first book, and what led you to write it?
Evelyn: Rose/Athor came to me as a client in 1988 with the goal of helping her overcome her environmental illness (aka chemical sensitivity) through the use of hypnosis. She had seen my ad and photograph in a metaphysical magazine and was convinced that I was THE THERAPIST she needed to see. I had never dealt with such a case before but she had a fascinating background and I finally agreed to see her for no fee as a research case. This led to almost three years of therapy in which through bits and pieces we were able to finally make sense out of her saga of being an aspect of one of the Beings of Light on the Council of Twelve on the etheric plane of the star system Sirius. Athor is listed as a co-author since she wrote her autobiography as part of the story.
Linda: What book or books have influenced your life?
Evelyn: There is a River, about the life of Edgar Cayce; Autobiography of a Yogi, about the life of Yogananda; all of the books from Religious Research in Florida; and numerous books published by the Rosicrucian Press. Actually I have a huge metaphysical library and have read a great deal that has contributed toward my present belief system as reflected in Cosmic Relationships.
Linda: I have never been regressed, but years ago I had thought about it after taking a six-week class with Dr. Hazel Denning (a friend of yours) I guess life got in the way, and I never scheduled it. At the time, she was teaching parapsychology classes at the University of California-Riverside. Then later, Dr. Brian Weiss came long with his books, which I recommend to anyone just getting into these studies. But Evelyn, I admire you, Hazel, Dr. Weiss, and many other professionals who come forward with such credible, inspirational, spiritual information to share. Did you have to overcome any obstacles in moving into the paranormal arena as a professional?
Evelyn: It took a great deal of nerve to go from traditional therapy to past life regression therapy, and finally to working with extraterrestrials. The people who were/are traditional therapists are usually afraid to do anything that is questioned by the Board of Behavioral Sciences (professional governing board in California). I fortunately had retired from many years in the public schools as a teacher, then a counselor; therefore, I was not totally dependent on an income from my private practice. Indeed I received several letters from the Board of Behavioral Sciences cautioning me about the work I was doing. I responded each time apparently with enough legitimate information that I would not hear from them again, until perhaps a year or so later. I finally became disgusted with their harassment and continued to practice as a hypnotherapist after dropping my MFT license. I’m an Aquarian and knew that they were just way behind the times in their limited thinking!
Linda: Does past life regression often, more than not, lead to healing of trauma or conflict a person has in current life?
Evelyn: Not always, but quite often. The main benefit actually was to deepen one’s spiritual life since this is a very spiritual process.
Linda: As I always ask writers that I interview---What is your favorite quote?
Evelyn: I have finally gotten around to reading Conversations with God by Neal Donald Walsch. Although I do not think he is talking to “God”, I agree with many of the concepts, and in fact might have used the following in Cosmic Relationships had I read it earlier:
“Your mind is right now filled with old thoughts. Not only old thoughts, but mostly someone else’s old thoughts. It’s important now, it’s time now, to change your mind about some things. This is what evolution is all about.”
Indeed if you can open your mind to some of the concepts in Cosmic Relationships, you will have taken a giant leap forward in your own evolution!
Linda: What other words would you like to leave us with, Evelyn? Thoughts to ponder? Thoughts on our future?
Evelyn: I am looking forward to 2012. Many of us seem to feel a new energy on the planet. There will no doubt be more chaos, but I have very hopeful that we are turning increasingly “toward the Light”.
Linda: Cosmic Relationships will be available at Amazon Kindle soon, isn’t that right, Evelyn? I wish you the best with the book. I’m sure others will find your book as fascinating as I have.
“We are at a time of great changes on Planet Earth. We need to ASK for assistance from the Beings of Light (This includes highly advanced ET’s – on Councils, etc., plus Ascended Masters such as Mother Mary, Hilarian, Jesus Sananda, Buddha, etc. and Angels). They will not interfere unless asked to help, just as you should ask for help from your guides and guardian angel. Please use the following visualization with a partner or group.
“Visualize a ring of fire or white Light with rainbow colors swirling around us (or a group). Place the Planet Earth in the center of the circle. We ask for all the beings of Light who wish to assist in bringing peace, harmony, good will, unity and balance to this planet to do so. We invoke the highest levels of light to protect Earth and all of its inhabitants.
As Athor states, if people all over the world did this on a daily basis, it would make a huge difference on Planet Earth. We can’t solve all these Earthly problems alone. We NEED the assistance of the more evolved beings.
Linda: Thank you, Evelyn.
