The Special Mother

Most people in the USA over the age of 30 remember the name Erma Bombeck and associate it with her humorous newspaper columns and books. Erma passed over in 1996, yet she remains as one of the most beloved and quoted people of the twentieth century. Many of her columns are passed through email and appear on many internet sites. There is even an Erma Bombeck online museum maintained by the University of Dayton, Ohio, Erma’s home town.

Recently, one of our Soul Channel participants sent the following article written by Erma in 1980. It provides a humorous yet insightful look at one possibility of how God might decide which children go to which mothers. I suspect that such decisions are not really made this way, as agreements are made among the souls of parents and children. However, some thought-provoking articles are simply worth sharing again and again. Read More…

Weekly Horoscopes are out — Personal Astrologer is in

Post contributed by guest author Bestmia.

Are you preparing your list of new year resolutions? How about just one: Living the life I was born for, and enjoying it fully!

We all want that — we all lose our way from time to time, and there are many ways to get back there again. You might consider one of the solutions that helped me: Learn something about yourself! Read More…

Stretching the Heart of Our Soul

We often wonder about the ups and downs of relationships, which seems to be a recurrent rhythm in almost everyone’s life. Do such stresses on the heart actually provide a benefit to us or to our soul? Perhaps we can illustrate this concept with an example chart something like the one below. Please bear with me for a bit of technical analysis of soul interactions.

The vertical axis of our example chart represents the relative energy we invest in a relationship; it might also be considered as the energy of attraction. When we first meet someone special, the relationship spirals upward geometrically and often passionately (the first rising curve at the left of the chart); then it peaks (at energy level 15) and slowly declines so as to stabilize at a somewhat lower energy level (10).  Read More…

Listen With Your Heart

In the waning days of 2011, I was able to complete the conversion of the book Listen With Your Heart — A Simple Meditation in Multiple Languages to an electronic book (eBook) and upload it to Amazon’s Kindle Store for distribution. This new eBook has several unusual features:

  • Unusual — The core content of the book consists of an automatic writing channeling session which sought information from the highest and most knowledgeable “authority” — in fact, from the root source of all knowledge
    — and I believe that was source of the reply; essentially from God.
  • Unique — In addition to background information about the channeling session and automatic writing process, ten translations are included within the pages of the same book, in addition to the original English version. This may be the first time that a single book contains eleven languages, and it is certainly the first such eBook.
  • Unique — The original eleven-language book is considered as Volume 1 of a series called Listen With Your Heart. Volume 2 is the English-only version, and Volumes 3 through 12 capture the original English channeled version plus one other language. All 12 volumes are listed below, along with links to the Kindle Store:  Read More…

Soul Prints

A dear friend of mine, Judith Royer, creates what she refers to as “soul prints”. A soul print is an image of an individual’s soul energies as rendered by a meditative artist.

As I recall the creation process — and recognizing that it has been years since I discussed this process with her — Judith meditates on the individual until she sees an image of their soul as a mix of diverse energies and colors. Based on this, she reproduces the meditative image on watercolor paper using radiant concentrated watercolors. Judith maintains that the radiant watercolors most closely reflect the brilliant soul colors she envisions. Watercolors work like magic, flowing with a goodly measure of unpredictably, mingling with other colors on the paper. Judith places the watercolors on the paper with the full intent that they will flow as they are supposed to in order to capture the true essence of the soul image. Areas where the colors merge intentionally represent the mingling of the energies of the soul.  Read More…

What is the Soul

I searched Google for the word ‘soul’ and received 1.2 billion hits. Of course, these covered everything from spirituality to rock groups and even The Soul Channel. The first soul hit on Google (as good a place to start as any) was for Wikipedia, which defines the soul as “the incorporeal essence of a person, living thing or object.”

Following this thread a bit further, Wikipedia reports that “incorporeal or uncarnate [discarnate] means without the nature of a body or substance. The idea of incorporeality refers to the notion that there is an incorporeal realm of existence, or “place”, that is distinct from the corporeal or material universe.” Frankly, it all sounds rather complex and disserving of something easier to grasp. I am comfortable with the fundamentals of the Wikipedia definitions, so perhaps we can use them to develop something reasonably simple.  Read More…

The River of Life

What is the ‘river of life’? This concept refers to your life plan and the path it follows throughout your physical life journey. The headwaters or beginning of your river are aligned with your time of conception, picking up speed, depth and breadth as your life progresses. Yet the general form, shape, length and key points along the way were defined back in the planning stages of your life — planned by your soul and your helpful guides during your ‘life-before-life’.

Why is this an important analogy? Once life begins — immediately following conception — we have a rather limited impact on the river of life, just as we have a fairly limited impact on our physical life plan. Certainly the choices we make in life are not all pre-determined, but the big ones are. Not every career or business decision is pre-planned, but all the important ones are, both the decisions that have a substantial impact on us personally and those that have a significant impact on others. Not all the people we meet are included in our life plans, but the significant relationships are, including all the long-term good and bad relationships.  Read More…
