View Full Version : Soul groups/soul mates?
07-27-2011, 09:56 PM
Hello! I am glad to have found this forum. I have read The Fun of Dying and and working on reading some of the resource materials as well. However, mentioned in the appendix of The Fun of Dying is a book I already read - Journey of Souls. The note on this book mentions that because the information in the book was gleaned from hypnois some of it is not accurate. I will say I find this to be a bit disappointing as the concept of a soul mate as described in Journey of Souls really appeals to me and it seems soul mates may be one of the concepts that is not fully accurate. I don't recall that soul groups were particulary discussed in The Fun of Dying, but I did see another post or two on this forum that indicated we do tend to reincarnate with the same souls frequently. Journey of Souls and its follow-up book spent quite a bit of time discussing soul groups. I am wondering what other information may be known about soul groups from other sources?

Dear Birki, there is no doubt whatsoever that each of us is part of a group soul! And beyond that, there are groups of group-souls, and groups of groups of group-souls, and so on so that ultimately there is just one entity - and it is all of us. I do love Newton's Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls! I caution in The Fun of Dying's study guide that these shouldn't be the first books people read, since much of what is in them is from the viewpoint of the eternal mind rather than the individual mind of the person who has just died, and I think they might give an impression of impersonality in the afterlife, when in fact the opposite is true. The Fun of Dying is about the death experience and the period right after death, when each of us is steeped in the personhood of the life that we just left, and at that early stage we are preoccupied with the family and friends of that most recent lifetime. But as we settle in to Summerland life, we come to find that we are part of a very much larger family of familiars with whom we have been learning and growing through millennia - sometimes incarnating with them, or sometimes acting as their guides (as they might act as our guides), or sometimes seeing one another primarily during these Summerland intervals. I know less about soul mates. We tend to think of them as romantic partners, but from what I have been able to determine many of us seem to have a close circle of a few familiars who are our eternal soul mates, essentially the core of our group-soul experience. For me, the most wonderful thing that we learn from all the afterlife evidence is that no matter how lonely we may feel in life, every one of us is part of an intensely loving group of eternal partners who are sharing our voyage toward spiritual perfection. As fantastic as so many things about it are, the best thing by far about the Summerland for me is that there we have literally dozens of best friends!
i have a question. say there was someone in this life you were in love with but your paths went seperate( it just wasnt meant to be this time and i've known that for along time) and on their path they end up dying at a young age. is it possible that after they have passed, for them to act as your spirit guide for the remainder of your life? i feel him around me and i feel as if he is trying to quide me to or thru something but i didnt know if he has become one of my guides or maybe just a messenger? or what?

Hi Pin! Yes, it is possible for a deceased loved one to act as a spirit guide. This happens mostly with family members, but really anyone who cares for us could act as a spirit guide. It is, however, also possible that this person is simple looking out for you and trying to communicate with you to let you know that he's alright and that everything is going to be okay. Sometimes our deceased friends and loved ones do guide and protect us without formally becoming our spirit guides. I can't really say which has happened, but I'm sure he's there and watching out for you.
