An Earthly Journey: The Story of One Soul's Evolution By James Samuelson
Paperback: $18.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
(2 Ratings)
On the surface, this book is the story of the author’s sixty year journey that takes him from the Midwest to Arizona and, finally, to Virginia. An Earthly Journey tells of those who impacted... More > him on his journey. The surface story, though important, is only one piece of the puzzle. The story is also about a dog and higher-dimensional entities, a very special piece of land, and a remarkable woman. It is a love story that began long ago, existing in many lifetimes. It is James’s story, and it is Angelica’s story, and the book could not exist without both of them. This book is a doorway, a glimpse into a reality which is contrary to third-dimensional conditioning, an example of the possible. It is an invitation for readers to understand their own journeys, to put together all the random events of their lives and find the connections. Ultimately, the book is what you discover it to be, and—hopefully—what it ignites within you.< Less
