Stephanie (Stevie) Lynn Nicks is an American singer and songwriter best known for her work with the rock group Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist.

She has been interested in spiritual ideas all her life and knows a great deal about her previous lives having had several past life regression sessions or ‘life readings’. As she says, “I love the mysterious, the fantastic. I like to look at things otherworldly and say, ‘I wonder what goes on in there?’”.

For example, she believes she was “put to death, like Marie Antoinette”. Antoinette was the last queen of France who was executed by guillotine in 1793. This has caused a phobia of exposing her neck. According to the book Stevie Nicks: Visions, Dreams, and Rumours by Zoë Howe, Nicks refused to lean her head back during a music video shoot. Instead, the director had to “call in a back-up singer to do it. I called her my stunt neck”.

“My ballet teacher believes that my head was cut off in another life, too. I totally give with my body except for my neck. Even if I go to the beauty salon, I can’t put my head back. They have to hold it or it will drop. The same thing happens when I dance or get a massage. It’s very weird”. Phobias and other minor ailments can often be traced back to an experience in a past life. Knowing this can help you to overcome these fears.

And she is not alone, Sylvester “Sly” Stallone also believes he had a past life in the time of the French Revolution and was put to death by guillotine.

In an interview with Playboy magazine in 1982 she also said, “I think I spent a lot of time in old churches, like a monk. I’m very comfortable around that kind of music, with that kind of creeping around, with being very quiet”. In this life she has studied Gregorian chants and has sometimes written songs in chant structure.  Also a year earlier, in 1981, she had an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, and while discussing similar topics said: “I think I was a monk in another life. I really do.”

She has also used past life regression to overcome writer’s block. In the book Gold Dust Woman: The Biography of Stevie Nicks by Stephen Davis, Nicks learned that she’d been a priestess in Egypt and a celebrated concert pianist. She also believes that she was a German citizen “who went through some of the atrocities. I know I experienced it. Every time I go to Germany, I feel it.”

In an interview with The Guardian (UK newspaper) she said, “Some people are really afraid of dying, but I’m not. I’ve always believed in spiritual forces. I absolutely know that my mom is around all the time”.

Asked if she thinks she will be reincarnated again, she said, “I think you live on Earth a certain number of times until you finish what it is you were meant to do here. And then you go on. I don’t think I’ll be back, I think I am done”.  Also, she said, “I can’t believe that the next life couldn’t be better than this. If it isn’t, I don’t want to know about it. I think that if you’re reincarnated, you’re probably reincarnated as many times as you want to come back—once you’ve cleaned up your karma, you’re off”.
