"Robert Schwartz offers deep wisdom into the nature of our soul and the purpose of our lives. He explains life and karma with clarity and elegance."
--Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret
"I was deeply impressed by Your Soul's Gift. This is a fine discussion of one of the great mysteries of existence: To what degree do we plan our lives before we are born? Robert Schwartz offers a profound spiritual analysis of some of life s most difficult crises and turning points. This book is well worth reading for its novel and surprising insights into the difficulties most of us face in life."
--Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life After Life

More About the Author
As a regression therapist (certified by the International Between Lives Regression Network), I offer Spiritual Guidance Sessions, Past Life Soul Regressions, and Between Lives Soul Regressions to help people heal, resolve life issues, and understand their life plan. I care very much about my clients and infuse my work with compassion and empathy. Please visit my web site at www.yoursoulsplan.com for information about these sessions and my schedule of speaking engagements. Should you choose to work with me, I will be honored to be one of the lights on your path.
My books Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born (previously titled Courageous Souls) and Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born explore 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.
Your Soul's Plan contains stories of people who planned physical illness (AIDS and breast cancer), having disabled children, deafness, blindness, drug addiction, alcoholism, losing a loved one, and severe accidents. Your Soul's Plan won the following awards: Finalist, USABookNews.com Best Books Awards, New Age Nonfiction; Finalist, Foreword Magazine Book of the Year Awards, Mind/Body/Spirit Category; Finalist, National Indie Excellence Awards, New Age Nonfiction; and the Eric Hoffer Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
Your Soul's Gift 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 planning we do with our future pets. Yes, our beloved animal companions are part of our plan! Your Soul's Gift won the following awards: Winner, Beverly Hills Book Awards, New Age Nonfiction; Finalist, Readers Favorite Book Awards, Nonfiction Self-Help; Finalist, Next Generation Indie Book Awards, New Age; Silver Medal Winner, Excellence eLit Awards, New Age/Mind-Body-Spirit.
In both books I learned about people's pre-birth plans by working with several exceptionally gifted mediums and channels. Both books present 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 replaced by acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace.
I have two DVD's available on Amazon. Your Soul's Plan: The Spiritual Meaning of Your Life is an 80 minute presentation I gave about my first book, Your Soul's Plan. Please note that it's not an audio version of the book, but rather a talk about the book and about pre-birth planning in general. The other DVD, titled Your Soul's Journey to Healing and Enlightenment, is a 4-hour video of a workshop I did with Barbara Brodksy, one of the channels featured in Your Soul's Gift.
Many blessings to you.

My life was dramatically changed by the words that came through mediums and channels in Schwartz's first book. As a bereaved mom, my son's death shook my world to a place I could not imagine. I searched for over ten years for meaning and purpose to Scott's sudden death. In the chapter titled Death of a Loved One in Schwartz's first book, I instantly connected with the mom who was in deep grief over the loss of her son. Our children died in different ways, but the message of soul planning came through to me as a beacon of light. I was able to move through my grief to much greater understanding and trust that the deaths of our loved ones are never random.
Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born continues beyond Robert Schwartz's amazing first book. Here Schwartz brings more insights to us, insights that help us regain our strength and our knowing of who we are following devastating, life-changing experiences. The need to understand who we are, WHY an experience needs to be so completely all-encompassing, and why we are here flows through each chapter. Understanding that we plan our lives before we are born is somewhat abstract for many, but for me it opened up much needed, revolutionary ways of thinking. We plan our lives before we are born? Yes! Schwartz has gone beyond his first book by going into some of the most difficult and debilitating challenges anyone can experience in a lifetime. Suicide, miscarriage, rape, incest, adoption, and more open up the real meaning of soul planning. WHY would anyone plan such challenges?Read more ›
Schwartz interviews individuals who experienced a variety of life challenges, and he recounts their stories with tenderness. He then investigates their pre-birth plans with four exceptional mediums and channels, asking questions of the mediums and Spirit that the reader might ask if given the opportunity.
In one session, for example, Schwartz is speaking with Jeshua (Jesus' given Hebrew name, pronounced "Yeshua") about how and why so many of us are awakening at this time in human evolution. He queries: "Jeshua, when something `bad' happens, particularly if the same thing happens more than once in a person's life . . . a spiritually awake person will take some comfort in the fact that the experience may have been planned before birth, but still the person wonders, `Why does this keep happening to me?' What would you say to that person?"
Jeshua responds: "If certain challenges happen again and again in someone's life, there is something there that the soul deeply yearns to understand or live through. It's very courageous of the soul and the personality to decide to experience this challenge repeatedly. It's important that the personality does not think it is doing something wrong or that it is being punished for something if the challenge repeats itself . . . It is important simply to know there is meaning behind it, even if you do not understand yet what it is."
The author beautifully interpreted this lesson about knowing as: "Trust is literally a carrier of light, and as light infuses our consciousness, we awaken. When we believe there is meaning in our challenges, we are demonstrating some trust in the goodness of life.Read more ›
Schwartz begins by sharing what motivated him to write the book: "For millennia humanity has learned through suffering. If we want to move beyond the learning-through-suffering paradigm, then such an understanding [of how lives are planned] is essential." And further: "To bring an awareness . . . of soul planning into the collective consciousness so we can heal the wounded parts of ourselves . . . and in doing so bring an end to incest, rape, and other forms of violation."
A bit later, before the main body of work, Schwartz introduces himself, penning the trials he planned before birth and how his prayers were answered in his current lifetime. How powerful it is when an author shares his story of awakening with the reader! Yes, we learn volumes from those whose stories he tells, yet it is especially moving when we see who an author truly is in spirit.
Your Soul's Gift is presented thoughtfully. The people presented in each chapter experience a different life challenge. Schwartz introduces the topic at hand and then skillfully talks with each person about their experience. Channeled information then sheds light on the life challenge and why it was planned before birth. The mediums and their guides share insights and offer very valuable suggestions as to how one can work through these situations to heal and find peace. Schwartz concludes each chapter, masterfully bringing together points that were raised, adding more insights and depth to the material covered. It's beautifully written and deeply inspiring.
