Editorial 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

“Schwartz provides a very special sense of seeing divine order everywhere… Your Soul's Plan provides a fabulous and much-needed compass for those of us seeking to regain the deeper awareness of our core spiritual strength. Highly recommended!”
New Consciousness Review

Your Soul's Plan is highly recommended to anyone trying to understand the suffering, tragedy or loss that has caused them to question life, death and/or God. And who among us is not inflicted by such challenges and questions in our lifetime? In my eight years researching life after death, spirituality and life purpose, I have discovered no better explanation of why human challenges exist than what is so eloquently written in Robert Schwartz's book.”
—Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com Editor

"The serene cover of Your Soul's Plan belies the punch with which Robert Schwartz communicates the results of his research into pre-birth planning . . . Overall, it is one of the best books of this kind I have come across."
—Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer magazine

From the Back Cover

So often, when something "bad" happens, it may appear to be meaningless suffering. But what if your most difficult experiences are actually rich with hidden purpose -- purpose you yourself planned before you were born? Could it be that you chose your life's circumstances, relationships, and events?

Within these pages are stories of ten individuals who -- like you -- planned before birth to experience great challenges. Working with four gifted mediums and channels, author Robert Schwartz discovers what they chose--and why.

Through these remarkable stories of pre-birth planning, you can:

*Learn why each of us decides to experience such challenges as illness, difficult relationships, the death of a loved one, and accidents

*Understand how you as a soul create your life blueprint

*Consciously use your challenges to foster spiritual growth and healing


Also available on DVD: "Your Soul's Plan: The Spiritual Meaning of Your Life"
In Your Soul's Plan, also available on DVD, Robert Schwartz offers the viewer an entertaining and fascinating journey into the life of the soul. The information he provides paints an intriguing picture of the other side of reality most of us are unaware of consciously.

More About the Author

Thank you for visiting my author page.

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.

What can I say in description of a book that has had more healing impact in my life than any I have read in a lifetime of 62 years? As a lifetime professional counselor, I have read and studied many books focused on the prospect of healing, but Robert Schwartz's Your Soul's Plan brought the events of my life more into focus than any I have read. I say this, not only as a healer, but also as a Vietnam Veteran, ex-helicopter ambulance pilot with a lifetime of challenge to overcome my own legacy of suffering.

Arranged in a series of case histories, tied together by the theme that there is an overarching life plan, planned pre-birth at a soul-level, we are made aware of how our own lives can fit the pattern he describes. With almost a hundred reviews here, I'll not go into repetition of the details so well described already. There are some things I would like to add.

For those of a skeptical scientific or conventional religious bent, the gentle narrative approach of Schwartz's writing will help you explore ideas that may seem unfamiliar or threatening to you. The consistencies in his discoveries that support his theme are particularly interesting. In my line of work, we might say that - while this may not be "good science" at this point, his discoveries have clinical validity when explored at the level he follows. My own life experiences and observations allow me to be open to the validity of psychic investigation, when it is genuine. Schwartz seems to have put together a good team of psychics to pursue his study. Obviously, it is difficult to establish validation, except on a personal level - but each of us ultimately can only establish truth on a personal level. Consensus and belief about truth can only take us so far.

Intelligently presented, fast-paced; here is your inside look at pre-birth planning sessions and why souls choose difficult earth journeys for soul growth purposes. It is script writing at the soul level for earth incarnations. This book was hard to put down.

The author has utilized talented mediums to access a soul's pre-birth planning sessions and the resulting stories have you right there watching the planning unfold. For me, this was the high point of each chapter; being present at the pre-birth planning sessions.

Some challenges a soul may wish to set up can be so great that other souls have doubts about being players, so often bargaining is done until agreement is either reached or another soul steps in to take the assignment, or the plan is re-written. This book has you right there, watching the planning unfold and hearing the actual soul conversations.

No abuse to, or affliction of, a soul on the earth level occurs without prior pre-birth agreement. You will learn the reasons why difficult lives are sought and how souls close to you participate in the planning process.

I find it amazing how your soul will reveal to you the lessons to remind who you are and why you are back here on earth. my spiritual growth has already introduced me to the material of reincarnation and lessons and about soul planning before we reincarnate, and what those steps might entail from life review once you are back, the meet and greet team, then healing.. So the material being introduced was not new, but I loved the case studies that the author used to provoke the question on why would souls take on such huge challenges like being gay, addictions, illnesses. I just gone through what I had already recognized a huge soul lesson with the passing of my father after a battle with cancer. To read this book and to affirm what I knew was true and then to read so many more fascinating cases of real life challenges and all to learn about love. It is amazing I wonder to myself, what else I have learnt in previous life to get me here. As it is in life, as I am reading this book, OWN was broadcasting its documentary on "becoming Chaz', Cher's daughter who transitioned, and this made the documentary so much more meaningful on what all the souls were trying to learn and teach the world! I was flabbergasted and shouldn't have been surprised with the timing! This book was an eye opening on a deeper level. It took me to another huge learning level and compassion is the lesson that I am facing.
I recommend the book 'souls destiny' by michael newton as a prequel to this book as this made more sense once you had the back ground to what happens to you once you exit your physical body. I am left with this profound awe of myself and the challenges that I have faced, the souls that have joined me on this journey and for all the souls who are here to learn! Why the hell is the earth school so bloody tough! It is all worth it in the end, this book helps you to get there. There is peace to be gleaned at the most challenging of our lessons, this is what I know for sure.

When I saw the great reviews for this book, I knew I had to read it. I, like most of you, have read several books about karma and reincarnation. I am pretty open minded, but I also try to look beneath the layers for truth. This book has a lot of layers.

The stories all touch your heart, and I do not want to take away from the personal stories. If anything, they show how the human spirit can withstand even the hardest tragedies. However, this book makes it seem like life is a one-way road. Your life is carefully and strategically planned out for you. How easy.

However, I feel (and this is just my belief, not fact) that this type of thinking takes responsibility and power away from people. If you are going to end up as an alcoholic no matter what, because it's your purpose, than why fight it? If your meant to be sick, than you always will be. This means nothing you could have done on earth could have changed this, it is your soul's plight. What about spontaneous healings? So many people have been healed of all kinds of diseases, spontaneously, through healers, and through other methods. Does this mean they have deviated from their soul purpose? If all disease is meant to happen, than why do we have the power to heal it?

I know so many people, including myself, with chronic illness who have done emotional work and been healed. So much of what happens in our lives are connected to emotions which were resisted and not dealt with as children. I think sometimes those emotions have rolled over from previous lives as well. However, I don't believe you have to LIVE OUT this huge tragedy to learn. I truly believe everyone has emotional healing they have to work on. Maybe it takes an illness to wake someone up to the fact.
