Q&A — Soul Groups, 9/13/2011

[From time to time I receive questions through email or blog comments about spiritual and soul therapy issues. I know in my heart that these delightful inquiries from a few kind people actually respond to similar questions by many participants in The Soul Channel. So I have decided to share portions of the responses without identifying the source of the inquiry.]

Question:

I read in one of your posts that souls tend to come to the Earth in groups to solve specific tasks. I started asking myself what are the tasks for my parent-family relationships.

Edited Response:

The simplest concept of a soul group is a group that is seeking to understand familial relationships. For example, assume that we are looking at your relationship with your mother: in this life, you are the daughter; in a previous life, you were her father or mother; in the next you may negotiate to be her brother or a cousin. Given the infinite possibilities of the soul, examining any question from multiple family-member perspectives provides substantially greater insights on the relationships and the various parent-adult-child relationships. Both soul groups and individual souls seek the broadest experiential perspective when the opportunities arise. Read More…

My Soul My Doctor – Part 1: Individual Choices for Healing

This is a three-part article which establishes correlations among the individual human, its soul, and its soul group relative to healing processes:

  • Part 1: Individual Choices for Healing (this post);
  • Part 2: Influence of the Soul on Healing Processes; and
  • Part 3: Influence of Soul Groups on Healing Processes.

The Spiritual MD

I am dedicating this series of articles (posts) to my exceptional Orlando-area medical practitioners: Nafeesa Mahmood (MD), Heather Godfrey (SLP), John Meisenheimer (MD) and Manuel Faria (DC), along with other gifted medical practitioners. I refer to them as ‘gifted’ because:

  1. they have struggled and attained advanced skills through extensive training and experience;
  2. they are very open to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM); and
  3. they don’t just talk about the value of folding mind, body and spirit into the therapeutic process; over time, their skills have evolved to an advanced level through their belief in a medical partnership with the mind and spirit as being the most effective path to healing.

Why are Healing Processes Selective?

It is sometimes useful to divide healing processes for any given illness roughly into thirds, as it applies to the whole of the population (all patients of all ages):  one-third of patients achieve a full recovery after a single visit to a doctor or therapist; one-third require multiple treatments; and one-third do not recover, continuing with the injury or dis-ease (spelled this way intentionally) in some form for the remainder of life and possibly contributing to other challenges or even a shortened life. This has little to do with the skill of an experienced physician; yet it has everything to do with the will of the patient and the intentions of the patient’s soul.

This also applies to most hypnosis and soul therapy procedures. Consider for example a large group hypnosis session:  one-third of the participants quit smoking immediately; one-third are able to quit smoking after several individual sessions; and one-third will not succeed in quitting. Again, this has little to do with the skill of an experienced therapist; yet it has everything to do with the will of the client and the intentions of the client’s soul. Read More…

My Soul My Doctor – Part 2: Influence of the Soul on Healing Processes

[This is a continuation from My Soul My Doctor, Part 1, which focused on the “Individual Choices for Healing.”]

Injury, Illness and Health are Life Plan Essentials

From an abbreviated perspective, most souls enter the physical world as an experiential learning process:  to experience that which they cannot experience in the pervasive loving purity of the Soul-Side; to gain a greater understanding of such experiences and their energetic emotional impacts; to demonstrate learning through changes in actions; and finally to gain wisdom from similar collective experiences.

One cannot completely understand darkness if there is only light and beauty; one cannot completely understand fear, anger, prejudice or war if there is only unconditional love; and one cannot completely understand injury, dis-ease or death if there is only eternal health. Looked at from another perspective, can a soul truly appreciate the light, love and eternal health without a comparative experience?

A soul does not simply decide to come into the physical world without approval and guidance. If selected for a physical life journey, the soul works with other experienced souls to develop a life plan that will provide a clear meaning (objective) and purpose to the physical life experience. If a soul is working on experiencing and understanding the effects of an enduring injury or dis-ease, including a short-lived terminal illness, then we can be certain that the soul will be directly involved in the outcome of any medical procedure.

My Soul My Doctor – Part 3: Influence of Soul Groups on Healing Processes

[This is a continuation from My Soul My Doctor, Part 2, which focused on the “Influence of the Soul on Healing Processes.”]

Soul Groups and Health Choices

It should be recognized that individual souls do not come into the world alone; they tend to work with soul groups (which will be discussed further in a separate article). Collectively, the soul group works on a generic experiential area, such as war or cancer, and part of the life plan of the individual souls is to contribute toward the overall group experience. For example, one soul may choose to die in war; others may experience that loss and the associated grief through a familial relationship or friendship with the soldier who died in battle; others may read about battle casualties or deaths in the paper or hear it on the news and react significantly. Each reaction contributes to the collective group experience and understanding about war.

Similarly, a soul group may be working on understanding cancer. One soul may die quickly from a late detection of cancer; one of the daughters may subsequently contract cancer and fight the terminal illness for years before passing over; other siblings may live their lives in fear of contracting cancer as their sister and mother did; yet another may contract cancer and experience remission, only to live in fear and face the cancer again later in life. Collectively, the soul group learns about many aspects of cancer through direct experience and from individual reactions:  surprise, death, fear, stress, grief, anguish, remission, changes in lifestyle or diet or exercise to avoid a similar cancer, struggle to survive, giving up when death is at the door, and an infinite number of questions as to “why me” or “why us” and “how could God be so unmerciful?” Read More…

Reliability of Channeled Information and Intuitive Readings

Confusion often arises over the accuracy of information provided to clients by mediums, intuitive readers, diagnostic readers, and other channelers. I am often asked how to determine if channeled information is accurate, comprehensive, flexible or “set in stone” so as to be unchangeable. Whenever working with mediums and intuitive readers, please keep the following in mind:

1.      All channeled information is filtered through the conscious mind, emotions and vocabulary of the channeler. Filtered information may contain information which is biased based on the beliefs and understanding of the channeler. A “pure channel” is a person who is able to allow their conscious mind to “step aside” during the session so that the channeler cannot filter or bias the information. This is much easier said than done.  Read More…

Progression Therapy

Progression therapy is similar to regression therapy, except that it looks at future events instead of focusing on the past. The world has always had prophets, clairvoyants, and psychics who predict future events; many are charlatans, but some are absolutely remarkable in terms of their ability to peer into tomorrow. Many of these predictions and events are recorded in the great religious books, such as The Bible, and all religions have predictions about future events which were envisioned by “inspired prophets.”

Nostradamus: A Prophet for the Ages

Some prophecies and predictions are extraordinarily accurate even over a span of centuries. For example, Nostradamus is a widely known prophet who published his “quatrains” (prophecies) in the 16th century. Some of Nostradamus’s quatrains appear to have predicted key events of the 20th century, including major players in such events (e.g., Hitler in World War II). Followers of Nostradamus also link his prophecies with the 2012 end date of the Mayan Calendar and the corresponding world-wide disasters, which is sometimes referred to as the “end of days.”

Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet

Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet

A more recent seer of the future was Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) who was able to look into the distant past as well as the future. By closing his eyes and placing himself into a trance-like state (an altered state of consciousness), Edgar Cayce was able to connect to recorded information (which he referred to as the Akashic Records) from all time, past and future; he could also connect to the universal consciousness (also referred to as the super-conscious mind). From these resources, he was able to respond to a wide range of questions from individuals across the USA and even in other parts of the world. Included among his predictions of future events are a possible polar shift in 2012 which would bring world-wide disaster (widely addressed on the internet). Read More…

Regression Therapy — Including Past Life Regression

Regression Therapy

Regression therapy uses hypnosis as a tool for accessing the subconscious mind where the client’s long term memory is stored. Once the long term memory is accessed, the client’s subconscious is “regressed” or moved back in time through the memories of the client’s life to uncover the root cause of any illness or dis-ease (intentionally spelled this way).

Hypnosis is a marvelous tool for regression therapy, whereby a skilled hypnotherapist can use time-tested techniques to locate the root problem(s) much more rapidly than psychotherapy alone. Once the root cause is identified, the client can learn to examine the event(s) from a higher perspective and subsequently release the emotional energies. Read More…

Meditation

Most people are familiar with the concepts of meditation and hypnosis, but they may not be aware of their therapeutic benefits. Practitioners often debate the differences between the two activities, yet there are important shared aspects. Most notable among them is that both meditation and hypnosis produce an altered state of consciousness, thereby creating a heightened state of suggestability. Therefore, they can both be used as therapeutic tools by a certified or licensed practitioner, as well as being used for self-induction techniquest by private groups and individuals.

The following discussion provides a very brief introduction to meditation; hypnosis and hypnotherapy are discussed in a separate article. Read More…

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

The previous article (post) discussed meditation as a natural form of therapy available to everyone. Meditation assists the individual to establish and maintain harmony among the body, mind and spirit. Hypnosis is quite similar to meditation in that both produce an altered state of consciousness, thereby creating a heightened state of suggestibility. When used correctly as a therapeutic tool, this increased state of suggestibility can be used to alter thinking processes so as to eliminate phobias (fears), minimize pain and anger, balance energy systems, retrieve forgotten information from the past, and open hidden, previously inaccessible experiences and memories.

The following discussion provides a very brief introduction to hypnosis and hypnotherapy. An introduction to meditation is in a separate article. Read More…

What is Soul Therapy

The Soul Therapist believes that we are all spiritual beings having a short term physical life experience. The Soul Therapist further believes that the Soul of each person has established a plan for maximizing the benefits of each significant positive or negative experience while in the physical life condition. The Soul does not dictate every moment of the physical life experience, but it plans in advance and arranges every significant experience for a specific reason, and that reason is always associated with the advancement or growth of the Soul.

Therefore, it is the Soul which makes the choice of parents, race, color, religious upbringing, relationships and relationship challenges, position or status in life, country and location of birth, timing of physical life departure (death), and the mechanism of physical death. It is the Soul which holds the key to all illness, dysfunction, and healing:  Read More…
