Walk-Ins

The concept of a ‘walk-in’ was first mentioned on The Soul Channel on August 8, 2011, in an article entitled “Automatic Writing — Part 2“. The article included the following brief introduction:

“For several decades, the famous author Ruth Montgomery was able to connect with an entity (soul or guide) on the Soul Side which identified itself as Lily. Although originally very skeptical, Ruth became quite comfortable over time with the information channeled from Lily as having a high degree of accuracy in terms of the information which was able to be verified in the physical world (e.g., people, places, dates, events, predictions, etc.). As a result, her automatic writing became the source of many successful books on spirituality. (On a personal level, my complete collection of Ruth Montgomery’s books are among my favorite reading and reference books.)”

Ruth Montgomery first introduced the concept of ‘walk-ins’ in her book Strangers Among Us. Roughly half of this book is dedicated to a comprehensive discussion of walk-ins. Roughly half of her 1979 book is dedicated to a comprehensive discussion of walk-ins. At that time, she estimated that there were tens of thousands of walk-ins on the planet; how many more are here now some 30 years later? More importantly, why should this interest us? And just exactly what is a walk-in?

Soul Groups and Soul Mates

In January 2012, I posted an article entitled “What is the Soul”. The article concludes:

“…that which survives the physical life of a human being is the spiritual aspect and is referred to as the ‘soul’. And stepping backwards, any aspect of a human which existed before conception is also part of that same spirit or soul. Thus we recognize that the soul is that aspect of each of us which survives physical death and continues to live on into eternity.”

A reasonable question might then be: “Do we have any friends or ‘family’ on the Soul Side? Will that aspect of our personality that lived before conception and which will continue to live into eternity live with others we have known before?”

The simple answer is ‘yes’; we refer to that soul family as our ‘soul group’, and our soul friends are commonly referred to as our ‘soul mates’. Yet that is a very simple answer indeed, for there are many competing perspectives on soul groups and soul mates. In the next few articles (posts) we discuss these concepts from multiple perspectives and in the following articles, some of which are still under development:

 

Caution: Soul Mate Ahead – Book and Concept Review

Any examination of the concept of ‘soul mates’ must surely include a very important book entitled Caution Soul Mate Ahead! by Janet Cunningham, PhD, and Michael Ranucci. While most of the world’s spiritual believers are searching for or yearning for that one special someone they consider as their soul mate, that journey often fails to recognize the true nature of soul mates. In fact, the title of Dr. Cunningham’s book introduces a critical warning about soul mates: “Caution…”.

There are more than 18 million references to soul mates on the internet, including more than one million individual pages, posts and articles. Within these discussions, different terms are assigned for soul mates, such as teacher soul mates, romantic soul mates, twin flames, essence twins, companion soul mates, task companions, sharing soul mates, constant soul mates, karmic soul mates, and so forth. Many of these are shades of the same generic type, helping us to categorize some of the more subtle variations among souls.

For the purposes of this article, we will examine the four general types or categories of soul mates identified by Cunningham and Ranucci in their book and which exemplify the use of the term “Caution” in the title of this important book. Here are the four categories: Read More…

Twin Souls and Twin Flames

Do you know the difference between soul mates and twin souls? Both types of souls are discussed in other articles on The Soul Channel, including the recent article on Janet Cunningham’s book, Caution Soul Mate Ahead!. Soul mates are typically the members of your soul group. In general, all of the soul mates from any soul group tend to work on the same general life theme (love, anger, fear, control, war, disease, genocide, technological development, advances in medicine, etc.).

God does not send you into the physical world alone; there are always at least several members of your soul group in the world at the same time and who you will interact with at different times in your life. These may be one or more parents or siblings (rarely all of them are in the same soul group); special friends or even enemies; marital partners or significant other relationships; one or more of your children. Each of these members of your soul group, including others still on the Soul Side, are referred to as ‘soul mates’.  Read More…

New ‘VFR’ Page

A new page has been added to The Soul Channel and appears on the header menu bar as ‘VFR‘. VFR is our acronym for Videos, Short Films and Recordings.

The new VFR page provides inspirational, spiritual or simply entertaining videos, short films and recordings, including embedded selections and direct links. If you enjoy any specific video, film or recording, please include a comment or review at the bottom of this page. If you have others, please send us the links for review.

Also, in early March, recordings related to soul therapy and soul fundamentals will begin appearing in selected blog articles and will also be posted on the VFR page. These recordings originated from the Voice America ‘Altered States’ radio talk show hosted by John J. Kelly, PhD, and capture interviews with various experts on soul therapies and fundamentals.

Life Plan

From a soul perspective, what is a ‘life plan’?

A life plan provides structure, purpose and objectives to the physical life journey. Imagine if everyone came to the planet with no sense of purpose at all; life would be much more difficult than it already is for most people, and much of the opportunity to focus on specific learning opportunities would be lost or wasted. Life would be entirely about reaction with very little independent proactive thinking. Read More…

Dream Therapy

A dream is an effort by the subconscious mind to communicate with the conscious mind. The subconscious mind never sleeps; it is the permanent recorder of all events in your life, whether you are awake or asleep. The conscious mind rests when the body sleeps, seeking to relieve stress, tension, worry, etc.

While the conscious mind is sleeping, the subconscious tries to communicate with the conscious mind by sending it visual images and other information. Unfortunately, the sleeping conscious mind is unable to understand all that information, so the dream often appears confusing or even apprehensive.   Read More…

The Special Mother

Photo from Wikipedia

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…
