Dolores Cannon is a regression hypnotist, meaning that she uses
hypnotism as a technique for past-life regressions wherein the
subject can recall details from an earlier incarnation on the earth
plane. One of her subjects recalled a past life as a student of
Nostradamus and helped interpret his quatrains. Through the student,
Nostradamus gave D.Cannon the task of translating the quatrains into
modern language free of the convoluted symbolism he wrapped them in
to avoid persecution under the Inquisition.
For the books, she used multiple subjects as channels, giving them a
first name pseudonym in the books. "Elena" was the first subject
through whom contact was made; she was Nostradamus' student Dionysis
in the past life. See the early chapters of I.
"I have never been in doubt that I am truly in contact with the
physical Nostradamus while he is alive in his lifetiem in France
during the 1500s." (I p117)
D. Cannon has written other books, _Keepers of the Garden_, _A
Conversation with a Spirit_, _A Soul Remembers Hiroshima_, and _Jesus
and the Essenes_.
