Inner Journeys, Cosmic Sojourns: Life transforming stories, adventures and messages from a spiritual hypnotherapist's casebook
Transpersonal hypnotherapist and philosopher Stephen Poplin has distilled forty years of practice, observation and insight into these volumes, sharing with the reader what he has learned about life, love, soul, death, karma, purpose and life-between-lives. Stephen has "interviewed" thousands of people who were in deep trances to discover Life's big secrets - and reasons for living, and dying. Stories of past lives and present paths are woven into fascinating descriptions of remarkable people confronted with fate, challenges, spirits, soul mates and divine contracts.
He has come to the following conclusions:
"Why we are here may not be what you thought, nor what you were told. We are being influenced by our thoughts, bodies, culture and cons. Step back and view the big picture; check out the cosmic map. Along the way we will approach life, love, calling and kismet. When digging deeper, we will come across lessons, soul-searching, and payback - whether conscious or unconscious. What is this all about? There is a force animating us and this essence, this soul, has a voice and a sincere urge to communicate with us. Knowing ourselves, via this spiritual source, will make all of the difference in the world.
So step in to the pages, take a stroll in the past, to forgotten places and fascinating people, to stark emotions and struggles, love won and lost, to the end of lives and beyond - for souls do not die. We are given many opportunities, and assignments. The Light shines on, for there is love, guidance, grace, lessons and options to try again. It is quite a ride, and you signed up for it."
Along the way, the eternal questions come front and center ...
* Why am I here? Is there a divine purpose?
* What about love, partners and soul-mates?
* Is there an afterlife? Is there a Heaven? Or a Hell?
* What role does karma play in our lives? What about Fate and Free Will?
Stephen weaves various ideas and beliefs from the world's traditions, for he wishes to share and compare inner journeys with knowledge passed on through the ages. The reader will benefit - and stretch - from these stories, anecdotes and gems of wisdom. There will be some surprises along the way ... and a few ghost stories.
How will this all end? You are co-creating the cosmic script.
