Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?

The book Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth? by Robert Schwartz (www.CourageousSouls.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. The book contains ten true 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, including one who has the ability both to see and to hear the dialogue we have with one another before we’re born. The book presents the actual conversations people had with their future parents, children, spouses, friends, and other loved ones when they planned their lives together. 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 healed and replaced by acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace.

Please note that Courageous Souls will be reissued by North Atlantic Books in March 2009 under the new title, Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. The new edition will be distributed by Random House. The book may be seen here:
