Summary

Would you like to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of physical illness, parenting handicapped children, drug addiction, alcoholism, the death of a loved one, accidents, deafness, and blindness?

Your Soul's Plan (which was originally published under the title Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?) explores the premise that we are all eternal souls who plan our lives, including our greatest challenges, before we are born for the purpose of spiritual growth. Through compelling profiles of people who knowingly planned the experiences mentioned above, Your Soul's Plan shows that suffering is not purposeless, but rather imbued with deep meaning. Working with four gifted mediums, author Robert Schwartz reveals the significance of each person's life plan and allows us a fascinating look into the "other side."

Each personal story focuses on a specific life challenge, organized by type for easy reference. Accessible both to those familiar with the metaphysical aspects of spirituality and to the general listener, the moving narratives that comprise Your Soul's Plan help listeners awaken to the reality that they are transcendent, eternal souls. With this stirring audiobook as a guide, feelings of anger, resentment, guilt, and victimization are healed and transformed into acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace.

Robert Schwartz is also the author of Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, which explores the pre-birth planning of spiritual awakening, miscarriage, abortion, caregiving, abusive relationships, sexuality, incest, adoption, poverty, suicide, rape, and mental illness. There's also a chapter about the pre-birth planning we do with our future pets.

Robert Schwartz is a hypnotherapist who offers general Spiritual Guidance Sessions, Past Life Soul Regressions, and Between Lives Soul Regressions.

Critic reviews

"The more we know about the meaning of life, the better we understand the important choices we must make. Robert Schwartz has done an excellent job of presenting the possible explanations of what we are doing here and why we are here. I highly recommend this book." (Dannion Brinkley, author of Saved by the Light and The Secrets of the Light)
" Your Soul's Plan is a deeply insightful guide as to why our lives unfold as they do and how to direct them to a deeper place. A powerful book.... I highly recommend it." (Sonia Choquette, author of The Answer is Simple... Love Yourself, Live Your Spirit!)
" Your Soul's Plan is one of the most detailed explorations I have seen into understanding why we have chosen certain paths in our lives and how we may use that information to continue our journey as a soul here and now. This book will help thousands of people. A book you HAVE to have in your library!" (John Holland, author of Born Knowing and Power of the Soul )

Insightful

I massively enjoyed the content of this book, I found it so enlightening and insightful. However, the narrator spoiled it as he sounds like a computer so totally ruined it, I deduct a star for that but the actual information is life changing if you can get past his voice

Why do we suffer??

Book offers a spiritual answer to the age old question of "why me?" in relation to problems and illnesses.

I had heard of pre-birth soul planning before, but this book adds depth, rationale and examples to explain the concept.

Consciousness Expanding

Fascinating insight into the rationale behind apparently harsh incidents within lives.
The book is quietly uplifting and provides useful information beyond the explanations behind individual soul plans. This is a very rewarding "read" - the information towards the end of chapter 12 is worth the price of the book alone, and I highly recommend it.

Reminded me to be more aware

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it helped me put a few difficult things into perspective and has worked as a reminder that all things happen for a reason even if we aren't always quite sure what those reasons are. I think my only negative (tongue in cheek) would be that it's left me with a few questions that I'm thinking will have to wait until I go back.

Oustanding book on the meaning of life

If you could sum up Your Soul's Plan in three words, what would they be?

Essential truths & understandings

What other book might you compare Your Soul's Plan to and why?

The Souls Gift by Robert Schwartz
Which provides more wisdom from the spirit works to guide and comfort us. Audibke.com please offer this work in your library as well!!!!

Any additional comments?

this book explains the processes our souls undergo to plan our earthly lives. I once thought past lives was far beyond what I could accept. If you are one of these people do give this work a try. If if dies not appeal to you now DO purchase a hard copy for future.
This book helps greatly to put in perspective why we would choose such difficult lives. It also distinguishes between what in life might be planned as opposed to an unexpected event or an exercise of free will. Information in the book are accounts of channeled readings which include direct questions to help us understand life.
I have read quite a bit in the area of spirituality. I find this book essential, compelling, well done. Wish I had discovered it long ago. I would quickly buy any future books by this author Robert Schwartz

A life-chaning platform of understanding

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have already recommended it to friends and that was before I was even into the 3rd chapter. This book has allowed me an understanding of life events that are not punishment from God, nor are they "negative" things occurring in our lives as we perceive them to be. Everything is an opportunity for even greater soul growth and expansion of consciousness. This book has changed my life in the best way possible. Almost immediately after typing this first part of the review but before finishing I took a nasty spill off my horse, and three days ago I would have been a mess. Now I get it. And not only do I get it, but I know how to best utilize what comes my way to enhance my own soul growth. Just the new understanding changed the way I see everything in this life. I'm a survivor of Columbine, too, and I have so many friends who would benefit greatly from this material if they were able to take it to heart. Sometimes they just aren't ready when we wish they would be, but the material is nonetheless here and available and it is so valuable. I thank the author for taking his time to make this work come together as he did. Fantastic job he did!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite story is Kristina's, the young lady who was inured by a time bomb put into the mailbox of a professor for whom she was working on a college campus. It is a powerful story and very poignant indeed. She seems to be an incredibly wise individual and I wish that I would be able to meet her some day. Very much a story of dauntless strength.

Which scene was your favorite?

The story about Doris was also extremely moving. I am going to have something called Soul Retrieval done and I very much hope that my mentor and channel will talk about some of these things as she does the work. Doris' story was my favorite because it was an example of someone who has done so many things right, and she lead a healthy life that would have given her a leg up as far as avoiding serious illness, but the reason we bring illness into our lives is so much deeper than the fact that we might love McDonald's and sugar in our diet, or the feel of the sun on our skin. What we think we know to be the causes of these things is not entirely so, if at all. Doris' story was moving and touching and relatable. Her lessons I believe are similar to my own.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh and cry, but tears of joy, to be honest. It hit home on so many levels I am not sure there is enough room here for me to elaborate completely. Let's just say that the timeliness of my introduction to the material is in no way a coincidence.

Any additional comments?

I am so grateful for this material. I really am. It changed my life for the better in so many different ways. I feel like my outlook and my perspective have done a 180, and I am prepared to move forward from here on. I am excited to continue to grow and advance, no matter what I have planned in my future. Looking forward to the "good, the bad and the ugly," because it is ALL valuable.
