Imagine a world where every human knows where their raw, negative emotions such as anger, hate, fear and pain originated from.  Imagine a world where everyone is aware of their soul, used it for their mutual benefit and gained insight from a source that knew only peace and love.  Imagine us truly appreciating the value of positive feelings.

A quote from the book reads “During our  lives all of us will experience opportunities for change which involves risk.  These occasions may come at inconvenient times.  We may not act upon them, but the challenge is there for us.  The purpose of reincarnation is the exercise of free will.  Without this ability, we would be impotent creatures indeed.”

Apparently, the test of reincarnation for a soul coming to Earth is to overcome fear and negative emotions within a human body, since negative emotions tend to take over our decision making skills.  “Journey of Souls” is a newage book written by the late Michael Newton who was a Psychologist who then became a Hypnotherapist, heralded for his own regression techniques that took his clients beyond their past life memories and into a more meaningful soul experience between lives.  The book contains case studies from some of his clients and how by overcoming negative emotions or events, creates growth for a soul. 

Everything I wanted answers to, I found in this book.  And I was transfixed by it all.

The narrative of the book goes through the different stages of what happens in the spirit world once a soul dies, how our guides assist us in the process of self-evaluation and what happens between lives.  Newton recounts people’s spiritual beliefs against what his clients advise him when in a superconscious state and how most souls are presented to a panel of superior beings to review their most recent life and celebrate what went well. 

“Journey of Souls” has raised my awareness and consumed majority of my imagination these past few months.  I can only echo Newton, “At a wat temple in the mountains of Northern Thailand, a Buddhist teacher once reminded me of a simple truth.  “Life”, he said “is offered as a means of self-expression, only giving us what we seek when we listen to the heart.  The highest forms of this expression are acts of kindness”.
