My Third Book is About to Go Out of Print – Here’s It’s Intro

February 9, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

My third book, And Yet A Little While, will no longer be available on Amazon.com and other worldwide outlets. I’m voluntarily withdrawing it for a year-and-a-half. As I mentioned, a few blogs back, I’m posting my large collection of movie scripts on http://studios.amazon.com/users/10660 for consideration by Amazon/Warner Brothers, a new Hollywood collaboration, which is seriously shopping for good scripts. One of their requirements is that the work cannot be offered anywhere else. They will have exclusive first rights for an eighteen-month period. So, before I perfect this one and post it there, I must withdraw it from the publishing market.

My previous blog introduced the subject of Pre-Birth Planning  and the possibiltiy that our lives might be scripted to some extent. I’d like to share my introduction to my about-to-disappear book, since it deals with the same topic:

In the year 2000, I began a formal interview with The Holy Spirit, which eventually resulted in my non-fiction book,   In Secret Diffusion, The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth. One of my topics was Reincarnation, a fairly new belief of mine as I’d spent most of my life disagreeing with that particular Teaching. I was very curious about such pre-birth preparation for a new life on Earth  

That was my background when, one evening while living in Aspen, Colorado, I attended the movie, “Message In A Bottle,” starring Kevin Costner and Paul Newman. You might remember this 1999 movie about a young widower deeply grieving for his departed wife and isolating himself in his work of boatbuilding. A newswoman falls in love with him while covering a story about message bottles that he and his dying wife had thrown into the ocean. Then, just as the grief-stricken man seems to be opening up to a new romance, he is drowned at sea.  Of course, we in the audience all felt a romantic reaction to his sudden death, which was now robbing him of another chance at happiness. Death was maligned as the usual enemy, to be avoided at all costs, not regarded simply as the mechanism by which we shift from one condition to another. Suddenly, I realized that he was now having a reunion with his beloved wife, thanks to that sudden tragedy and I began to ponder the two ends of physical existence and how short our earthly life might actually be, though it usually never feels that way to us. I found myself repeating the phrase: “And yet, a little while….” as if that’s what I could have said to comfort the grieving widower.  

By the time I got home, I had this script all worked out, from start to finish. Naturally, fresh from the movie  which inspired my thoughts, I envisioned Kevin Costner in the role of Tim Grogan, and Paul Newman as Randall Whitehorse. I still see and hear them in those parts, even though Paul is now in the Upper Realms, perhaps writing birth plans for his next life down here on Earth.  

Long after this movie script, and its non-fictional companion, In Secret Diffusion, was completed, I learned about the work of Dr. Michael Newton, Ph.D., author of Journey of Souls. Thanks to him, hypnotic past life regression now offers people a way to witness their own pre-birth planning for the present life.  Robert Schwartz, author of Your Soul’s Plan; Mark Ireland, Soul Shift, Dr. Linda Backman, Bringing Your soul To Light, and many others, make convincing arguments that we script our lives to help our souls evolve by coping with lessons which only an existence in a material realm can provide. Thus, the public is now prepared for ideas which would have sounded like science-fiction even ten years ago when this script of mine was written.  

Radical stuff! All this delving about in our sub and strato-consciousnesses!  Today, hypnotic regression offers us ways to access our moments spent in-between lives, evaluating a previous life and planning our next one. Many things become so clear when we understand exactly why we planned them. We might learn that the people with whom we have shared our greatest happiness, and our greatest woes, have often agreed to play that role in our evolution towards becoming more spiritualized human beings.   

It’s confirming to me to realize that the storyline of And Yet A Little While  fits perfectly with these new understandings. My fiction is not a serious treatise on the subject of Reincarnation, Religion, Birth, Death, Heaven, or a Between-Lives Planning experience. Some angles don’t fit the new theories, perhaps. Others do. That’s okay, it’s a miracle that they come as close as they do.  

This whimsical Movie For The Mind  is simply a light-hearted attempt to imagine the many things told to me by a Speaker Who identified Himself as The Holy Spirit when I could suddenly hear a Voice from the Other Side. (Heck of a lot of caps there, eh what? But I can’t “he’p it.”)  The more serious material is reported in my companion book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth. This one is just for fun.  

If you will recall that old movie, Back To The Future, that’s the attitude I would recommend when reading this rather-loosely-thrown-together tale.” 

(Note: If you are intrigued by this introduction, you still have time to order it on Amazon.com before I pull it out until mid-2012.)

What Are The Reasons That A Soul Reincarnates?

January 23, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

I asked many questions about Reincarnation in my book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth. Here are a few:

What are the reasons that a soul reincarnates?

“To advance spiritually or psychologically. Not many are capable of advancing very far spiritually, because it is a difficult thing to do in the physical world. Many have tried and wound up in a reduced position because of the hardships and the effect on their psyche. A great number of people try to control their psychological development and many do not succeed in this path either.”

Do we ever design a happy, comfortable and favorable lifestyle, or is that not the purpose of reincarnating?

“Yes, if you are going in for psychological advancement. But that is not the true purpose of reincarnating, which is to gain spiritual advancement. That’s usually not done in comfortable circumstances.”

You refer to two tracks: spiritual advancement with a choice of a hard life, and psychological advancement, with a choice of an easy life. But you say it won’t be very effective if done for one goal or the other; but will be effective if done to solve both goals, simultaneously. I’m puzzled….unless the type of lifestyle isn’t that important. They seem to lead in opposite directions. Can You clarify this?

“Oh that’s right. It’s not easy to talk about these goals because they are sort of combined, anyway. People come down to advance themselves spiritually, but they often have a lot of trouble relating to other people and that has to be cleared up before they can progress very far on any spiritual goal. All have to learn how to love and that’s not easy to do when they can’t get along with the people in their lives. Many times, life’s circumstances shift about and easy, comfortable lives become unbearably hard, or difficult lives work out well. Don’t get confused with these exterior details and don’t presume to interpret someone’s life course, just by what you see about them at that moment.”

Do Earthlings stay on Earth in their reincarnating cycle and others stay on their own planets, or is there cross-planetary reincarnation, as a rule, or ever?

“Yes, Earthlings do stay on Earth, but those from other planets may reincarnate on Earth, depending on what they have to do. Their reasons for reincarnating are often very different. Earthlings don’t go to other planets until they are finished with Earth, which could be at the end of a completed life cycle.”

Please define life cycle.

“A life cycle is made up of many lifetimes over many millennia. It is a very long period of time and it contains many lifetimes. Most people do not complete one life cycle. It’s a rare thing but it can happen, to go into a second life cycle.”

Life Rocks…And So Do These Books!

March 25, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

A week from today, on Thursday, April 1, lots of family and friends will gather on my deck/patio for a big, happy reunion. We are praying that it will finally be predictably warm and also that the weather will not interfere with flight schedules. Some prognosticators are predicting one more blizzard to cripple things again before Mother Nature calms down for the season. My daughter and her family will arrive this week and clear flying weather would definitely be a good thing. My brother-in-law, has just spent two days trying to fly between Florida and Colorado, thanks to a howling snowstorm.

My house-redecorating has pretty much stabilized, but life is busy trying to deal with publishing matters and my new and intensive teleseminar course about book promotion and marketing. However, that is leading to some surprising new friendships. I am discovering a very large web of like-minded thinkers by doing the internet research that is necessary to my marketing plan. I’m certainly not alone in Hearing The Voice of God, or in my case, The Holy Spirit. This is the hot new topic in the book world today and it will probably swell to the same crescendo as did the subject of Near Death Experiences when the first life after death books began to hit the news.

I have now cyber-met two authors whose books have just become bestsellers in this genre and I am in a flurry of email communication with each of them. Both of their opened books (Your Soul’s Plan and When God Spoke To Me) are upon my desk, filling my few spare moments during this very busy week. But, I can’t leave either book alone and it’s actually fun to mix the reading of them, picking up whichever one is the closest at hand. Though I’m nowhere near finished reading either one, I can emphatically and heartily recommend them to you:

The first one is Robert Schwartz’s Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born (www.yoursoulsplan.com) which is so convincingly written that you can, for the first time, imagine that you, yourself, are actually the one who wrote the blueprint for the life you are now living. The author has selected a handful of the number of actual cases that he investigated using four very talented psychics and channelers to access the moments before birth spent actually planning: physical illnesses, deafness and blindness, drug addiction, alcoholism, death of a loved one and accidents, to happen during the course of a life on Earth. Through contacts with their spirit guides, each individual interviewed was able to recreate the pre-birth counseling session to learn of the spiritual goals, which the soul had set out to accomplish through hardships on the material plane.

I already knew quite a lot about pre-birth planning. At least, I knew that it existed and why… from my own interviews with The Holy Spirit, and that is covered in my new book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth (coming out later this Spring). But I found the details about how this actually plays out in real people’s lives, very fascinating and confirming. Robert Schwartz writes so well about a complex subject and he clearly has a deep understanding of the spiritual realities concerning reincarnation. I am constantly filled with admiration for the quality of focus that he brings to each individual case.

I share his curiosity and thirst for subjects along this line and I know the privilege and great luxury of being in touch with a Higher Consciousness willing to answer any question put to It. However, Schwartz curbs his own personal enthusiasm, and extensive background knowledge of the whole subject in general, and hones in with questions specific to the life of the person under discussion, who is present during the interview with the psychic and spirit guides. Then, between case histories, he uses his keen understanding to fill the reader in on this completely unknown facet of behind-the-scenes administration of human reincarnation. There is solid evidence that our life events are not accidental.

This book is making huge waves and has already been translated into an impressive number of languages. Your Soul’s Plan has already garnered a long list of testimonials from some very important individuals and publications. Please go to Robert Schwartz’s website or to Amazon.com and order this book. It will revolutionize your thinking.

Next post, I will fill you in on DavidPaul Doyle’s book, When God Spoke To Me. (www.thevoiceforlove.com). I have already dubbed him the Weaver of Basket-Cases, because reading the many short, beautiful stories reduced me to helpless tears and I became such a basket-case of sobbing emotion. If you like to cry, this is the book for you! You can find this book on Amazon.com, too.

Coming Back To Earth

September 20, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Continuing along with a look at my Question & Answer Session with the Holy Spirit back at the turn of the Millennium, in the year 2000:

On the subject of Reincarnation:

# 6 – There must be several methods of coming back to a life on Earth. Would You describe the following methods?:

A. The Planned Reincarnational Send

This is the most common and the most recommended because it is approved, planned, and guided.

B. The Impulsive Leap-In, such as the extremely elderly human who returns as a baby as soon as possible.

These are renegade lives, which steal the intended human’s lifetime. It will either bump them out, if the leaper is quite powerful, or it will co-exist, or superimpose, and share the life with the intended human. The number of leapers has grown as we approached the Millennium.

C. The sentencing: as in Hell-On-Earth, for someone who needed punishing.

This was the most common reason for coming back to life on Earth. If someone had really misbehaved, they would have to return as a victim in an eye-for-an-eye type of justice. This did not often serve to correct their problem, however. Their sentencing would bring them back in one-thousand years, so that Earth would not have an overwhelming population of victims at any given time. If they lived out a victim’s life without becoming abusive, then they could remain at the level they had achieved at death. If they were still found to be misbehaving then they would come back into an even deeper form of victimization.

#7 I have heard that we choose our parents and the events which will occur in our lives. How is this done? Is it like writing a novel? Do we know these parents whom we choose, or do we just generally describe their characteristics?

You do choose specific people to fill specific roles in your lives. They are usually people whom you already know and you may not like them very much, and  you may be trying to help them. The psychological path people choose easy lives because they don’t want physical obstacles to get in their way. Their lives would rock along, in the physical sense; but they might, or might not, have stormy relationships with these other people. If they have good, strong, mutually-satisfying relationships with these co-reincarnationists, then they have fulfilled the purpose of that life. It is a little like outlining a novel, but it’s very general. One is not allowed to plan very specifically, as that takes away the ability to work within a situation.

Can we ever define a future life while we are here on Earth?

No. It’s not the time for it.

Can we ever define our present life (as we did in the pre-planning stage), while we are alive on Earth?

No. It’s already been defined, even to our manner of death.

Can we ever find out what we included in our pre-plan of the life we are now living?

Yes. You can ask all about it. But it may not be very helpful to you to know how you are going to die. It’s usually best not to know these things. Some psychics can read these plans and predict something that will happen in the future.

#8 – Do we ever design a happy, comfortable and favorable lifestyle, or is that not the purpose of reincarnating?

Yes, you do, if you are going for a psychological advancement, but that is not the true purpose of reincarnating, which is to gain spiritual advancement and that is not usually done in comfortable circumstances.

#9 – I understand that there is no memory carrying over from lifetime to lifetime. Is this true only on a conscious level? Is there a subliminal level that remembers the lessons and experiences of other lifetimes, especially the opposite or difficult kinds, so that we learn how to improve?

There is very little memory that carries over from lifetime to lifetime because We don’t want the person to be influenced by their past actions and decisions. There is no conscious or subliminal memory. Regressions pull the information from somewhere else… not within the person. De jevu does prove that there are small bits of memory, but there is no central record on a mentally-retrievable level. The person’s name is the clue to Those on the Upper Levels as to their past life record.

But, there are so many duplicates, and so many diverse people with exactly the same name. How can irecords be kept individually?

This is not a problem. There are many people with exactly the same name, but it does not interfere with their identity. We keep them sorted out the same way that you do. You can know people with the same name, and yet see them as distinct individuals.

#10 – This question concerns numbers of ultimate souls. Though numbers may not be important, are there really fewer people than we think? Does one soul eventually account for many individuals throughout history?

Yes. But the numbers of souls who reincarnate, at all, is relatively few. There are others who are passing through this terribly difficult plane of existence only once, and they will take what they can get in the way of results.

That’s it for today. Stay tuned.

Reincarnation Is One Way To Achieve A New Life In A New Location

September 18, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

I’m going to return to my recent practice of quoting from my upcoming volume of Questions & Answers, which I started many blogs ago. Then, I took a detour to describe InterGalactic Friendship and now it seems appropriate to begin the subject of Reincarnation, which would be the reason one might have an InterGalactic Friend, in the first place. An IGF is always someone with whom we have been very lovingly-connected in a previous life.

Perhaps you don’t believe in Reincarnation. Neither did I for a large portion of my life. I used to wonder what Shirley McLaine was talking about. Well, actually, I thought it would be neat if it were true, but my religion of the time denied that fact outright, and so I did too. Later, when my Inner hearing senses opened so surprisingly, I learned many things. That’s one reason that I thought up all my questions and interviewed The Holy Spirit, just like Barbara Walters would. We started out with questions about Reincarnation. So, here we go on that already universally well-discussed subject:

#1 – What are the reasons that a soul reincarnates?

Just one reason. To advance spiritually or psychologically. Psychological problems present the greatest hang-ups, but spiritual problems present the greatest needs. People who want to advance spiritually will come back to a hard, hard life, but people who want to advance psychologically, will choose an easy, easy life but will return with people with whom they have psychological problems. Not many are capable of advancing very far spiritually, because it is a difficult thing to do in the physical world. Many have tried, and have wound up in a reduced position because of the hardships and their effect on the psyche. The majority  try to control their psychological development and many do not succeed in this path either. Those who are satisfied with the level they reach after death do not reincarnate.

#2 – How often do they cycle through ?

Not very frequently. Most people need to leave a space of one-hundred to one-thousand Earth years if they want to reincarnate. Someone who will reincarnate goes into a special mode. They are put into a deep sleep and aroused to make their life’s plans just before they are sent down into their new timeframe. Their waiting time is determined by their special needs.

#3 Do Earthlings stay on Earth in their reincarnational cycle and others stay on their own planets or is there cross-planetary reincarnation as a rule? Or ever?

Yes, Earthlings do stay on Earth but those from other planets may reincarnate on Earth, depending on what they have to do; as their reasons for reincarnating are often very different. Earthlings don’t go to other planets until they are finished with Earth, which could be at the end of a completed life cycle.

#4 Does it always happen in groups? In pods of family members or friends?

No, it does not. Many times, someone will come back without attaching their life to others whom they are customarily with. They will solo to see how they behave without the group that has somehow coalesced over the years. If they are working on psychological advancement, they will often find people of the same personalities, even if they are not the same people.

Next time we will cover: various methods of returning to Earth, choosing our parents and events, defining a future life while on Earth, can we know what we designed in our current “Life plan” while living it?  Stay tuned.

As An Arriving Earth Settler, You Wore Diapers!

September 9, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

So, you think you’re not interested in the subject of babies? Perhaps, you’re still young and not ready to settle down. Maybe your biological clock is not ticking. Maybe infants annoy you. Maybe you like them okay – at a distance.

Or, maybe you are dying to have one and can’t wait to become a parent…or a grandparent. Perhaps you already do have a baby and can’t get enough of the subject. Maybe one is “in the oven,” for better or worse. Babies bring up all kinds of references in our minds – bottles, blankets, baby powder, booties…burpings! You name it. Cute, cuddly, and cantankerous. Darling, dimpled, and diapered. Pretty, perfect and poopy.

And they can change your life in an instant! Very powerful individuals – Babies!

But, how often have you thought of one as an astronaut, wearing a miniature life support suit?

Honey! That’s exactly how you arrived on this planet, so many years ago that the memory of your landing has faded and you have completely morphed into the Earth Colony that you came to expand. You have successfully become “one of them,” and you can look at these little incoming astronauts and be fooled by their disguise. That’s the idea.

Yesterday, I promised to change the subject in the peek I’m giving you into my as-yet-unpublished manuscript, Questions & Answers, which is my interview with The Holy Spirit some years ago. I asked Him a little bit about Babies:

#126 – Tell me about babies and children. Where have they been before? Are some brand new? Can You tell the difference?

Yes, We will gladly open the wonderful subject of sending consciousnesses to the Earth in the form of new human beings. Some of them have been cycled through, many times and are very eager to come back after a long, long wait in between lives. Some have never been alive in a physical existence and are coming into a totally different experience than they have ever had before. They have often been asleep, waiting for a chance to descend into an Earth life, for thousands and thousands of years. Without having a moment to think how they would react, they are born into a totally new environment and they don’t have any idea of what they are.

They are, potentially, new souls. But at this point, they are bits of consciousness which have been assigned to a human identity and are setting forth to become a living, breathing human soul. In order to become a soul, they must catch fire with the Love of God, and ignite their special capacity within themselves. That is the purpose of every person’s life cycle on Earth.

We can tell the difference between the reincarnating human baby, and the brand-new bit of consciousness baby, all the way through their lives. One is a lot more mature, and their eyes reveal a great deal of depth. The brand-new baby is just a little bit more puzzled and surprised at everything that goes on around it.

#127 – When “they” are in the womb, “where” are they? Does the consciousness, itself, reside within the growing embryo/fetus within the mother; or does it wait somewhere, or even hover around the woman who carries it?

It does not have to stay within the developing body cells. Instead, it connects with this developing tissue of its new body, so that it will always maintain contact, but it does not have to collapse into such a small area unless it wishes to. The consciousness remains with the baby, who is within the mother. Frequently, it hovers around the mother, as well.

#128 – Does it watch and surround the mother and father and its surroundings, even before birth?

Yes, it does. If it is a reincarnating self, it will be able to comprehend a great deal more about what it sees and hears. If it is a brand-new baby, it will begin to take in some of the information it will need to aclimate to this planet.

#129. Have you any advice to parents-to-be, and those awaiting the arrival of a birth?

Yes, just love your child as much as you can. They are all coming in to learn how to love. They all need a great deal of love, and they must learn how to love while in this physical universe. Parents can start loving their child instantly, long before the child is born…or even conceived…and, they can love each other.

Arriving children are now giving their advice: “Don’t argue! It upsets your baby very much to hear harsh speech, so just be relaxed and accepting about everything under the sun and we will be able to relax about coming into this world.”

#131 – Do babies know and hear more than we give them credit for? At what point do they lose their memory of their past and become the Earth Human in that new life? Inception or birth?

Babies do know and hear a great deal, and they are cognizant of everything until they are born, at which time they forget their past knowledge and become an Earth Human. They are very aware of everything that is said or done, in their behalf, or against their behalf; so it is best to be careful of what you say and do during pregnancy, because this forms that baby’s basic opinions during their lifetime. Even though they forget that they have heard anything, the impression they gained will be indelible.

Stay tuned for more, all of you Jaded-Earth-Humans; you successfully -immersed Astronauts, you!
