Publisher's Summary

Would you like to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of physical illness, parenting handicapped children, drug addiction, alcoholism, the death of a loved one, accidents, deafness, and blindness?

Your Soul's Plan (which was originally published under the title Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?) explores the premise that we are all eternal souls who plan our lives, including our greatest challenges, before we are born for the purpose of spiritual growth. Through compelling profiles of people who knowingly planned the experiences mentioned above, Your Soul's Plan shows that suffering is not purposeless, but rather imbued with deep meaning. Working with four gifted mediums, author Robert Schwartz reveals the significance of each person's life plan and allows us a fascinating look into the "other side."

Each personal story focuses on a specific life challenge, organized by type for easy reference. Accessible both to those familiar with the metaphysical aspects of spirituality and to the general listener, the moving narratives that comprise Your Soul's Plan help listeners awaken to the reality that they are transcendent, eternal souls. With this stirring audiobook as a guide, feelings of anger, resentment, guilt, and victimization are healed and transformed into acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace.

Robert Schwartz is also the author of Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, which 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 pre-birth planning we do with our future pets.

Robert Schwartz is a hypnotherapist who offers general Spiritual Guidance Sessions, Past Life Soul Regressions, and Between Lives Soul Regressions.

What the Critics Say

"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 )

    "Cause and Effect... The cause effects the shift"

    Excellent book that brings awareness to life. "Without darkness, we cannot fully see and appreciate the light. Without contrast to love, we cannot know fully and profoundly who we really are. challenges in life awaken us to ourselves... to remember the light and love we truly are."

    "Interesting content but insufferable narration :("
    Where does Your Soul's Plan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a pretty open minded person and I believe in the concept of pre-birth planning but struggled with some of the details described in this book which seemed a bit unrealistic. It's possible that the narration contributed largely to this. I have read reviews before where people bash the narrator and I always feel bad for them. But this performance was so grating for me that I had to share. The narrator switches between a silly robotic emotionless voice when speaking the words of the spirits, to what sounds like a full-of-wonder voice of a child who is just learning to read. The enunciation of every...single...syllable in a too slow and steady pace drove me batty. I forced myself to keep listening for the content, but man, it was painful. I'm sorry Richard Banks! I bet you're a really nice person. I just wish I could have read a review like this before I bought the book as I probably would have reconsidered. Having said that, there were parts of this book that were incredibly thought provoking and moving. I would suggest reading a copy rather than listening for this one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration in this particular book was cringe-worthy for me and made otherwise interesting content insufferable at times.

    "So good! Great section on Addiction/Recovery!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and learned many new concepts and ideas regarding reincarnation and past lives. I especially enjoyed some of the personal testimonies, especially the ones whose life plans contained experiences surrounding addiction; a mother whose son was an addict, and an alcoholic man who was actively using for ~40 years: Both of these stories ended with them attaining continued abstinence and reaching a new found level of spiritual awakening and renewal! Wow, this book has just been a joy to listen to :)

    "Unfortunate monotone performance loses greatness of content"

    The content of the story is great, although a bit long-winded in parts. I would have preferred a little less detail and more getting to the point and lessons. I found myself easily daydreaming and thinking about other things while trying to listen due to the monotone delivery in the performance. Despite this audio book's flaws, the story is still very much worth reading! The book offers you the opportunity to completely shift your perspective on life and it's purpose. With that shift, comes more peace and contentment with the circumstances of life and the people who you cross paths with in this world. I highly recommend this book, but I can't help but wonder if reading the book, instead of listening to it, might serve others better.

    Excellent! Please give yourself a favor and listen to this book. The information is superb! The performance is so so, narrator was reading with monotonous robotic voice very annoying and disturbing. The book itself is excellent though!

    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    When I first saw this book pop up as a suggestion I was skeptical I would like it. The cover seemed a bit trite, but I am beyond grateful that I was led to find this jewel.

    The principles shared in this book are profound and, in my opinion, rooted in truth.

    I highly recommend it.

    "Why do we suffer??"

    Book offers a spiritual answer to the age old question of "why me?" in relation to problems and illnesses.

    I had heard of pre-birth soul planning before, but this book adds depth, rationale and examples to explain the concept.
