Dr. Charles Richards is a licensed psychotherapist in San Diego, California. Dr. Richards has used a non-hypnotic therapeutic practice called Soul Journeys with over a thousand patients with staggering results. In this book, Dr. Richards explains the often misunderstood spiritual law of karma and how it may be affecting your life. He includes a questionnaire to help each reader identify their karmic relationships, assess the level of intensity of these relationships and helps uncover unconscious triggers and patterns. Throughout this book readers will learn how to change negative and damaging relationships and resolve the karmic issues that hold us all back. Included in the book are dozens of fascinating case studies of the use of Soul Journeys including stories of how this process has affected Dr. Richards own life and relationships for the better.
Also covered in the book are stories of patients who used the Soul Journeys process to discover in between life reunions where upcoming lives are planned with other souls that will determine the course of love and relationships in our present day lives. Additional stories include patients remembering experiences from their prenatal and birth process that influences, for better or worse, the lives they live today. Dr. Richards shows us how we can resolve these issues and memories in order to increas self esteem live a more positive life.
I personally found this such a fascinating book that I read it in one sitting and bought several copies for friends. This book is particularly recommended for people who have tried unsuccessfully to use traditional therapy to resolve current difficult relationships and ongoing life struggles. Read with an open mind this book offers another option to help each reader live their best life.
