Everything Happens for a Reason Author:Suzane Northrop This book sheds light on many of life's nagging mysteries. If you've been wondering why you were born, what death is, and why there can be so much pain in-between . . . if you question your choices, aren't sure about the people you attract into your life, and would love to stop making the same "mistakes" over and over again . . . then read on. ... more »For 25 years, Suzane Northrop has been working as a trance medium and has come to enjoy an international reputation for integrity, accuracy, and responsibility. Over the years Suzane's work has brought meaning to the messages from our loved ones who have passed to the bond of love between the living and the dead. Now, in this unique work, she examines the relationship between those who have passed over, our own souls and the lessons we are here to learn-or our Soul Program-and shows unequivocally that everything happens for a reason. Why are we here? We are in this life for a purpose-whether we're aware of it or not-and that purpose is to learn, to accomplish what each soul has chosen as its program, and that could mean anything. It's whatever our souls need to learn. It might be patience or self-reliance or dealing with loss or compassion. Each soul has a different program; no two souls need to learn or accomplish exactly the same thing. The soul's path is to grow, and each path is unique for each soul. What is death? Death is a new beginning. One of the greatest misconceptions people can have about death is to think of it as an ending. While it may be the conclusion of one specific phase of a soul's journey, death is just as surely the beginning of the next. It's simply another phase of transition in the evolution of our soul's ongoing existence and quest for growth, lived, at least temporarily, on another plane. If it were a play, it would be the next act. If it were a book, it would be the next chapter. What's with all the pain? Without free choice, life would have no real purpose. We'd all just be sitting around waiting to find out what someone else had decided was going to happen to us. Words like morality, ambition, motivation, good, and evil would have no meaning. Our free will gives us the power of choice, but it can cause hurt. If we keep making the same choice, and each time we make the choice it causes us pain, it's because we haven't yet learned from experience to make a different choice the next time. No one is punishing us; we're simply punishing ourselves. But, again, there's a reason. We are in a time of decision. Will we remain satisfied living in a space of denial, ignorance, and unresolved issues? This is a time that is calling each and every one of us to step up to the plate with a deep dedication to our loved ones, our relationships, our lives, and ourselves. We are called to learn how to live and speak our truth with love, compassion, understanding, and forgiveness-for others and ourselves. We are excitingly on the threshold of the old and new, of light and dark, of illusion and truth, and adventure and complacency. There is no doubt there is a reason we find ourselves at the point we are in time. We have created it . . . for a reason.« less
I've read this book and I still have it in my personal library. A very difficult book to give up and I never will. This book was life changing for me and it's never been the same since. It's gotten better because now I understand what life is all about. I recommend this book to anyone searching for their own truth in life.
