The Book of Life

The Book of Life

Have you ever wondered how many lifetimes you have lived?

Would you like to speak with a member of your Karmic Board?

Do you believe in reincarnation or instead have been taught that we go to heaven and stay for eternity?

Are you aware that the Bible makes a reference to a book of life in both New and Old Testaments?

If you answered yes to any of these questions this post will be of interest to you.

In my readings I often see the book of your life. The great trance medium Edgar Cayce was also able to see someone’s book of life or Akashic Record. Edgar Cayce traveled through other dimensions to reach what they refer to as the Hall of Records. I see the book clairvoyantly, and can discern the size and read the symbols attached to it. Saint Germain tells me about any lifetime that is relevant to you now. To experience a past life directly, I recommend hypnotic life regression.

When I tune in to the book in a reading I see a desk with a book-- either on top of the table or on the floor. Behind the desk is the record keeper. The record keeper responds to my questions by opening the book to a certain section. Allow me to describe the book to you. The book is filled with ribbons that have meanings for all your lives. One or more council members are present for the reading. These council members or teachers are assigned to you and will comment on your progress in this life. They often have suggestions for work that you might want to do to grow your soul. Sometimes, they are very pleased with what you have done. Frequently they offer gifts in the reading.

Most of the lives shown to me are not those of famous people. The most interesting have been a few clients who were alive either before or after the death of Jesus. I have seen a child die before assuming the role as the tribe’s shaman, and many lives in rural settings where life was hard. Soul contracts are brought up when that is a current issue.

Most western religions do not teach that life continues. Eastern religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism do teach reincarnation. The Dali Lama is in his 14th life-time, He says “In order to accept reincarnation or the reality of Tulkus, we need to accept the existence of past and future lives. Sentient beings come to this present life from their earlier lives and take rebirth again after death.” If you add up the numbers, more of the world’s population believes in re-birth than do not. (Tulkus means having the ability to remember all past lives consciously).

Although I was raised in the Catholic faith, I could never adopt the finality of heaven. Because of many personal experiences—two past life regressions and many dreams about other lives, I have always accepted rebirth as truth. I have talked about some of these personal experiences in earlier posts.

There is proof of reincarnation particularly in the work of  Doctor Ian Stevenson who conducted research on the subject for years at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Dr Stevenson focused his research on young children who remembered their previous lives. Michael Newton wrote the amazing books Journey of Souls 1 and 2. In his career he has regressed 7,000 people and uncovered memories of their past lives. Many are documented as true through historical research. If you have an interest in this subject read his books.

St. Germain says, “One begins at the elementary or kindergarten level in respect to all that lies ahead. There is an accumulation of knowledge based upon each year of study. One begins by knowing very little. So the record is your report card. One must progress to move ahead. Some souls like the first grade and decide to stay, and others move ahead rapidly.” He continues to say that a very large book doesn’t equate with higher wisdom. The book can get larger as the soul continues to repeat the grades over and over again but the soul may be delaying their move to another grade. He shared with me the secret to determining whether a large book is in fact a sign of an old soul.

I asked St. Germain if the references to the book of life appearing in the Bible were true. He said this: “Yes, it is the same book. There are many religious groups that will not acknowledge continuation of life in the body. Most religious groups reduce it to a single experience.

Here are many references to the Book of Life in the Bible. Here are a few:

Revelation 3:5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels.” Exodus 32:31 -33

“So Moses went back to the Lord and said, “Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves gods of gold. But now, please forgive their sin – but if not, then block me out of the book you have written. The Lord replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book.”

Another reference to this subject in the Bible can be found Philippians 4:3 “Yes, and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.”

Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people-everyone whose name is found written in the book-will be delivered

I have always been uncomfortable with heavy emphasis on sin in the Bible. The Course in Miracles defines sin as a lack of love. Since love is all there is, sin in the sight of the Holy Spirit is a mistake to be corrected.” God loves us, and one can remove punishment from the conversation. In the back of the Course in Miracles is the section called The Manual for Teachers. This book can be a life-changing experience. It is a book that was channeled by a professor at Columbia University. She channeled Jesus. I like to refer to the section called what is death. Jesus says, that “death is the central dream from which all illusions stem. Death is the symbol of the fear of God. Death denies life. The reality of death is firmly rooted in the belief that God’s son is a body. And if God created bodies, death would indeed be real. But God would not be loving.” He continues to say—“Do not be deceived by the reality of any change in form.”

Saint Germain went on to say that we will know if we are making progress in this lifetime not by how easy life is, but how well we overcome all our obstacles. So the end of the story is this—there is no death only numerous opportunities to practice love. God is a loving God, not a punishing one.

I hope you have enjoyed this post abut the Book of Life. I appreciate your comments and if you have a question for Saint Germain I will ask it on your behalf. Send them to jane@artspeakstosoul.com Sending love to you all!
