by Ruth WhiteWorking with your Soul

How can I do justice to this book in a few short paragraphs? I’m tempted to simply say, ‘read it!’ This would certainly be my advice for anyone who has yet to find an answer to the eternal questions, ‘why me?’ or, ‘what am I here for?’ Even if you don’t work your way faithfully through all the exercises – which I haven’t done yet – you will find a lot of very useful information to help you answer those and other similar questions, including a detailed explanation of karmic issues.

There are chapters on relationships (family, friends, romantic, business, enemies etc); archetypal helpers and obstacles and illness/dark nights of the soul, as well as ‘decoding your soul’s purpose’ and other helpful subjects.  Ruth White offers a comprehensive guide to finding out what your soul is hoping to achieve from your lifetime, and how you can consciously work towards those objectives.  Anyone who is working through a lifetime of struggle with a particular issue, e.g. health, may at last find the reasons for this. There is a chapter devoted to the three types of karmic work.  Retributive, is resolving a past-life issue, or making up in some way for past imbalances or abuses. Redemptive, is helping others to work through similar issues, from the perspective of your own journey through them – working towards a life that makes your heart sing. Transcendent, is going beyond the need to do this work, to a stage where you surpass the needs and expectations of your soul contract and all obstacles disappear, leaving you to move forward joyously and freely to heights you never dreamed possible.

I also have Ruth’s book, ‘Working with your spirit guides’; this book is a companion or sequel to it, though you don’t need to have read one to work with the other. However, taken as a pair they could help to completely transform your life, leaving you with a better understanding of your reasons for incarnating; where you are now; and where you would like to be; and also with a useful road map and guidance for getting there. A thoroughly recommended read.

By Wagner AlegrettiRetrocognitions

Alegretti’s interest in non-physical manifestations of the consciousness started with his own experiences of spontaneous conscious projection, which began when he was 10. By the time he was 19 he had developed the ability to produce lucid out-of-body experiences largely at will.

This book is a technical-scientific analysis based on Alegretti’s work in the sciences of Projectiology and Conscientiology over a period of eight years. It studies retrocognitions that occur during out-of-the-body experiences and their relation to other types of perceptions. It also discusses recollections of the periods between one human life and the next – retrocognitions in which the person can access important information regarding the goals we are programmed to accomplish in this life.

Alegretti has written this book using the terminology familiar to teachers and students of Conscientology, and as such it is a major classification of a whole range of associated experiences. Generally these experiences are referred to by a hotchpotch of names taken from a variety of groups and cultures both modern and ancient, and as such can be confusing. One person’s interpretation of “aura” maybe very different to some one else’s – while two seemly different terms can mean the same thing. Conscientology appears to have started with a clean slate and re-named each experience in such a logical manner that there can be no confusion as to what the terms mean. Where appropriate Alegretti has also given the names in common usage allowing us something familiar to cling to along the way. Chakra is one of the few existing names that seem to have found a place in this study.

This is not light reading by any means and there are no case studies included. It presents the whole arena of past lives, OBE’s and a myriad of other psychic phenomena in a coherent and logical manner. For those wishing to understand these processes intellectually this book is a must have source of reference to well documented experiences.

by Bruce & Andrea Leininger with Ken Gross

James Leininger was just two years old when he began having disturbing nightmares that would not stop. He screamed out in the night “plane on fire! Little man can’t get out!” While nightmares are common among children, what happened next shocked those around him.

James began to reveal details of planes and war tragedies that no two year old boy could possibly know. So began his parents’ quest, which led them to the unbelievable truth that their son was reliving the past life of World War II fighter pilot James Huston. This touching story tells of the very personal challenges that Bruce and Andrea Leininger faced during the years they spent researching their little son’s statements about the friends he had known as James Huston, and the technical details he revealed.

This is a story that confounds the sceptics (of whom Bruce Leininger was most definitely one) and confirms the beliefs of those who already believe in life after death – or life after life! It is also a tale of the deep friendships forged in the heat of war that continue long after the battles are over, perhaps longer than has been realised.
