My name is Marie-Alix Ravel. I was born in France and lived there many years before moving to Montreal, Canada for almost 14 years. In 2006, I moved to Los Angeles, California. As a hypnotherapist and an intuitive reincarnation researcher, I have learned of Kiera Hermine's life story in the course of my psychological counseling and spiritual therapy practice in Los Angeles. I attempted to verify Kiera's claims when possible. I systematically studied the clues Kiera had accumulated from her dreams, inexplicable coincidences, psychics, and channeled information. Her prodigious amount of research and evaluation convinced me that it made a strong case for the possibility of Kiera Hermine being the reincarnation of Marie-Antoinette and I have decided to write her story. ‘Marie-Antoinette’s P resent’ is not science fiction partially based in reality. It is reality cloaked in fiction, based in the emerging science of reincarnation. Pseudonyms and some fake details have been used to protect the identities of the protagonist and her family and friends. I also wrote for Elle Magazine and appeared on numerous TV shows. I have also been the story consultant for the movie industry. My passion is to help people.
Throughout time, there have been people who changed the world by being killed so their lives and messages become eternal in our history books and consciousness. Marie-Antoinette was born in Austria to a life of unimaginable wealth and unquestioned privileges. At the age of 14 she moved to France to marry the dauphin and at 18 became Q ueen of the most powerful country of Europe. When the French Revolution broke out in 1789, everything changes. Marie-Antoinette had to grow up very fast. Despite of all her efforts, she lost everything and finished her life in a small cell of the Conciergerie. In the confinement of her cell, her life was suspended in time. Tribulation made her realize who she was and she understood things were taken from her so that she would not remain earthbound and forgetful of her true immortal state.
’ Marie-Antoinette’s P resent’ is the never-before-told novel based on a true story of a young woman, Kiera Hermine, burdened with repetitive nightmares of an old wheel on a cobblestone road, wooden steps, a frisson of cold air on her neck and the bitter taste of metal in her mouth. Emptiness. Silence. Death. In order to uncover the truth behind her dream and its connection to her present and past relationships, Kiera courageously shares her spiritual and emotional journey toward the realization that she was indeed, Marie-Antoinette, the last Queen of France.

Hindus: Y ogananda’s teachings The highest Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, says: ‘I, the supreme Spirit, reincarnate myself again and again in order to uplift the oppressors and redeem the virtuous.’ As a man, forsaking one worn-out garment, puts on a new one, so also, the soul, leaving a tattered body, betakes itself to a new freshly dwelling.
E gyptians - Ba and Ka suggest reincarnation. Ba implies a phenomenon like the transcendent soul and Ka apparently refers to an aspect of the Ba which is individuated and linked to a physical body, an in a soul-incarnate. - The jackal is associated with the process of death and birth - three jackal skins suggest multiple rebirths or reincarnation. The familiar Egyptian symbol Ankh has been interpreted to signify the human soul's immortality.
Jewish K abbalah Shar’ar ha Gilgulim (Gate of Reincarnations) Reincarnation takes place so that people may progress spiritually through healing or correction. Reincarnation involves working towards a reconnection with the creative source of light. The Kabbalist sees achievement of enlightenment, “illumination” or “awakening” as rising to the level of a co-creator of the universe - along with other creator-beings.
Early C hristian Declared heresy by Justinian in 6th century. Jesus said, ‘But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not… ‘. ‘Then the disciples understood that He spoke unto them of John the Baptist.’ (Matthew 17:12-13). In Revelation, Chapter 3:12, we read: ‘Him that over-cometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out. He that overcomes his bodily desires will become a fixed soul (pillar) in the mansion of God’s presence, and he will not have to go again to the earth in pursuit of earthly fulfillments. Origen (185-254 CE) struggled to incorporate reincarnation into the newly evolving dogma that required belief in Jesus' death and resurrection as the sole path for humankind's resurrection. Byzantium Emperor Justinian (527-563 CE), at the Council of Constantinople in 543 CE, had Origen's principle of reincarnation declared heretical and ordered his texts burnt.

A strology According to Karmic Astrology there are great chances of Marie-Antoinette and Kiera Hermine being the same soul. Kiera has the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio, which means in her past life she was born under the sign of Scorpio. Marie-Antoinette was born on 2 November, therefore she was a Scorpio too. Kiera has the Rising sign in Leo, which makes her 12th house be ruled by the sign of Cancer. The 12th house corresponds to the Rising sign of the person's past life, so Kiera's Rising sign in her past life was Cancer exactly the same Rising sign of Marie-Antoinette (who was born at 7:30 PM). Kiera has the Moon in the 12th house under the sign of Leo, which means she was probably someone with lots of power, to be more precise, a Queen. Her Saturn is in Aries, which means she was very criticized as person, she had to fight and argue in order to protect herself from gossip and offensive words. And that's exactly what happened to Marie-Antoinette when she was being judged by the revolutionaries. Kiera has Neptune retrograde in the 4th house (the house of family) and that means she probably saw her family being separated and couldn't do anything about it. Neptune also represents revolution, different ideas and holocaust, so there are great chances that she lost her family in a revolution, just like Marie-Antoinette did.
“ History doesn’t exactly repeat itself,but it rhymes in observable ways.” Cases suggest R eincarnation appears to work in a similar fashion. So, what rhymes and how is it carried forward?

As I am amateur historian with a passionate, life-long interest in France, the 18th century, and Marie-Antoinette in particular, Marie-Alix Ravel, the author of ‘Marie-Antoinette’s P resent’, offered me the opportunity to read the French manuscript. I jumped at the chance and finished it in its entirety in twenty-four hours! This is a powerful, thought-provoking, honest and historically accurate story of self-discovery, psychological insight and reincarnation. I have always believed in past lives but until reading this book, I was unaware of how much our past lives effect our present: our relationships, our career choices, our personalities. Part novel, part history book, part spiritual guide and scientific discovery about the latest research involving DNA and reincarnation, ‘Marie-Antoinette’s P resent’ is one of those rare books that have the power to change lives - both past and present.
