No one is perfect.
We all came here to Learn.
The Lord tells us that judgment belongs to Him.
Love is always the answer.
Are you afraid to die? Do you believe in eternal life? What is “life” and why are you here? Do you have strange dreams you don’t understand? ... have difficult relationships? ...ever loved someone so much that you think you can’t live without them? Have your thoughts ever led you to believe that you are crazy?
What if you could answer these questions – how would that change your life? Do you want to live with more peace and joy?
In the Finding Margaret trilogy, bestselling author, Margery Phelps, takes you on a journey that will give you answers to all these questions. In telling her true story that is documented in medical and legal records, she uncovers truths about life that apply to each of us. The third book in the series contains word-for-word transcripts of Margery’s hypnosis sessions with a highly respected psychologist in Atlanta, Paul Schenk, Psy.D.
The author’s journey to uncover the answers to life’s most compelling questions began in economics class when the professor slammed a book onto his desk; looking up, Margery saw an elderly lady holding her arms in front of the professor, saying, “He’s special; protect him.”
Rubbing her eyes in disbelief that she was having a “vision,” Margery was overcome with strange physical sensations and emotional feelings she had never before experienced. Years later, Margery was talking with a client in Singapore who described a similar encounter:
“A man walked into my office, shook my hand, and turned my life upside down.”
After her three-year odyssey to find Margaret, Margery wrote the original manuscript for her children – to share with them the lessons she learned on this incredible journey – and also as a personal catharsis. She wanted to step back and take a look at all that had happened, which is why she wrote the story in third person and did not filter out the day-to-day family activities. It was important to her to be genuine (with exception of protecting certain identities) and these three books tell the Real Story.
This is a true story. I have written it exactly the way it happened to me between January 1987 and December 1990. The descriptions of characters and names have been changed to protect their identity.

When the original manuscript was completed in 1992, my twin sister gave it to her friend and neighbor, who produces t.v. movies. She passed it along to a professional reviewer in Hollywood, who summarized it with the words: “This is a wonderful story.” Because of the cost to produce the many period pieces in this trilogy, the movie idea was abandoned; I still think it would make good film.
Many years ago, I read an inspiring book by Dr. Gerald Jampolsky and Diane Circincione titled Love is the Answer. It is my sincerest wish that after reading Finding Margaret, that you, too, will agree – Love really is the answer.
. . . of love, hope and courage. This true story trilogy has been written as three short novels with names and descriptions altered to protect identities. The actual events took place between 1987 and 1990 and is documented in medical and legal records.
This is the second book in my series, “Finding Margaret - uncovering the crazy truth that you're not crazy after all.”
The title was suggested to me by Steve Kidd, an international best selling author and marketing guru who has been an inspiration and guiding star to bring this story to fruition.
When I first met the economics professor who turned my life upside down, I never had any idea where I would land. Deeply depressed and often suicidal, each day was a struggle. The Good Lord must have had plans for my life, however, because I not only survived, I thrived.
I look back upon my journey as a great education for my Soul and know unequivocally that each soul chooses the way it meets life’s challenges and makes the choices that create its experiences.
Today I have a very busy career as a small business accountant, and I have published twelve books. I enjoy family activities and travel with my two adult children, five amazing Grans, and now two great grandsons.
If I could make one wish for you, it would be that you, too, find the path to peace, love, and joy.
After two years of troubling dreams and nightmares about my college economics professor and scared out of my mind by emotions I had never experienced in my forty-five years of life, I truly thought I must be insane.
Add to this, I was sleep deprived for a long period of time, became gaunt from loss of weight, and lost the use of my left arm for no known or diagnosable reason. How would you feel if all that happened to you?
I am a classical music fan, so you might say that this story is my Scheherazade– the story of a woman who avoided death at the hands of her evil husband by spinning nightly tales of intrigue and suspense. He never killed her because he wanted to hear the end to her story and eventually fell in love with her. I kept going because I had to get to the end of my story, and I hope you will not only enjoy reading about the journey I took to find Margaret but will also see where there could be similarities in your own life – and that the lessons I learned will give you a deeper and more meaningful understanding of your own journey.
As we travel together through this last book on my odyssey, I hope you will be open to the experiences I have had and see that I am not unique – things like this are happening globally. I have been contacted by people around the world with similar stories: a man in the south of France, an archeologist in Rome, Italy, and an office administrator in Singapore, who told me, “A man walked into my office one day, shook my hand, and turned my life upside down.”
Exactly as the title says, I really did think I was crazy. When I realized the implications of past-lives on current incarnations, I knew it was my mission to share my story to hopefully shed light on what I call “past-life crisis.” A classic example of this is Bruce Jenner, the world class athlete and Olympian, who is now a “female” (Caitlin Jenner) and has said from earliest childhood he wanted to be a girl. In my humble opinion, this is clearly a past-life crisis and he was identifying with a prior incarnation. This is happening more and more as more souls are incarnating. They need help; we need to understand the real source of their identity problems.

I can honestly say that "Finding Margaret" has been one of the most compelling reads I have come across in a very long time. You are simply swept along in the whirlpool of events that build in complexity. You cannot imagine how circumstances could possibly get any worse. Then they do! Despite this, the author takes us through her trials and tribulations like the captain of a ship riding out her own private hurricane. Two things in particular stand out. First of all, the fact that this is truth and NOT fiction. That Margery Phelps is as she is today because she really has endured these spiralling events, making her stronger, wiser and enlightened. Secondly, and even more important, is the way she sets reincarnation and all its implications up front and centre, showing how they empowered and inspired her to move onward and upwards in spite of everything happening about her. But for me, the most amazing thing of all, was the way I felt caught up in this inspirational whirlpool, giving me an ability to see everything from a much broader perspective.
The only issue I would raise is that because the story careers along at such a pace, involving several present life characters who are also referred to by their past life names, readers can get a bit lost. Maybe the book needs a "Who's Who?" guide to sort that out?
I thoroughly enjoyed Finding Margaret! I could not put it down! The story was so engaging and relatable. If I had any doubts about the reality of reincarnation before reading this book, I no longer do!
Enjoyed this book's easy story telling style. Interesting story!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Finding Margaret. It was one of the books that was hard to put down, even though it was getting bedtime! I recommend this book to anyone who has a spiritual interest or and interest in reincarnation.
Many people are troubled about unexplained situations in their lives. Reincarnation provides a simple explanation and resolution.
