The Mind of Ted Bundy / Past Life Healing

About the show

Internationally recognized author, co-author, investigative reporter, and editor Stephen G. Michaud conducted death-row interviews with serial killer Ted Bundy, resulting in a New York Times bestseller and a Netflix four-part series. In the first half, he discussed his interest in true crime, his impressions of Bundy and aberrant criminal behavior, as well as his new work on the death of Robert East, a wealthy Texas rancher who was taken advantage of by unscrupulous individuals in his final years. In order to get Bundy to open up, Michaud pointed out to him that he was the most knowledgeable person alive about his crimes, and to his surprise, Bundy grabbed the tape recorder "and off we went on a six-month tour of a sociopath's brain."

Like other sexual serial killers, Bundy often committed his crimes first in his mind before trying them out in real life and had an active fantasy life. He took "souvenirs" of his victims and actually had a collection of five or six decapitated heads that he kept in his kitchen cupboards, Michaud recounted. He also detailed how a woman married Bundy while he was in prison-- she maintained that he was innocent during his trial and even gave birth to his child, conceived during a conjugal visit before he was executed by electrocution in 1989. While Michaud didn't believe Bundy had multiple personalities, Bundy told him he heard the voice of an "entity" that whispered to him when he saw potential victims.


In the latter half, one of the world's leading authorities on energy healing and mind-body medicine, Dr. Shelley Kaehr, discussed past life therapy and regressions, the Akashic Records, future memories, soul retrieval, and healing gemstones. Past life regressions can have a number of therapeutic benefits, she suggested, including self-discovery, acceptance of difficult situations in one's current life, as well as guidance about relationship or health issues. As to why many people believe they had a past life as the same famous person, it may be that they are tapping into an archetypal energy or the collective unconscious, she remarked.

Some individuals may be aware of their past lives through a kind of soul-knowing (called anamnesis by Plato) and don't necessarily need to use regression techniques to recall their incarnations, she revealed. Kaehr characterized "future memories" as a way to travel down the road in our current life in order to choose ideal outcomes for things like one's career or to align with their soul's purpose. Soul retrieval, she explained, is a powerful tool in which a person meets with a higher self of a loved one and receives virtues or aspects that they may have lost along the way. She added that this is related to ancestral healing, and how we can inherit traumas and issues from our parents and ancestors and then engage with them at the soul level for healing.
