My book Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born (www.YourSoulsPlan.com) explores the premise that we are all eternal souls who plan our lives, including our greatest challenges, before we’re born for purposes of spiritual growth. <br />The book contains ten stories of people who planned physical illness, having handicapped children, deafness, blindness, drug addiction, alcoholism, losing a loved one, and severe accidents. The information about their pre-birth plans was obtained by four gifted mediums and channels. Your Soul’s Plan presents the actual conversations people had with their future parents, children, spouses, friends, and other loved ones when they planned their lives together. <br />For readers, suffering that once seemed purposeless becomes imbued with deep meaning. Wisdom may be acquired in a more conscious manner; feelings of anger, guilt, blame, and victimization are replaced by acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace. <br />Your Soul's Plan was originally published under the title, Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth? <br />Author Bio <br />In a personal session with a medium in 2003, I was astonished to speak with nonphysical beings who knew everything about me - not just what I had done in life, but also what I had thought and felt. They told me that I had planned many of my most difficult experiences before I was born. Realizing that a knowledge of pre-birth planning would bring great healing to people and allow them to understand the deeper purpose of their life challenges, I devoted the next three years to studying the pre-birth plans of dozens of individuals.
