Soul Contracts

posted in: Blog, channeling, spiritual power | 2

If you’ve been on the spiritual path very long, you’ve probably heard of “soul contracts.” But what are they?


There is no being in your life by accident—whether it be a human, animal, plant, other sentient being. There are no accidents, only soul contracts.

We realize this may be, as you say, a “hard pill to swallow.” But literally every aspect of your lives, from the most minute to the most monumental, is there because you have put it there.Read more

Sex and Your Soul

posted in: Blog, channeling, mind body soul | 8

sex-soul…intimacy means more than sex…. You are intimate when you are fully with another, no matter what.
Neale Donald Walsch

After reading that title, you’re probably asking yourself, “What on earth do sex and my soul have to do with each other?”

Good question.


The myth of sex

Among the greatest myths you have been taught about humans is the myth of sex.

Sex, except under very limited circumstances, is a sin. Or, at minimum, a deviation from the “right” path you’re supposed to be following.Read more

Life’s Eternal Questions #1

posted in: Blog, channeling, mind body soul | 2

You are God. ~ John Cali and Spirit



Over the years, folks have asked us many questions. I’ve recently begun to organize their questions and our answers. So we thought it would be a good idea to occasionally post  those questions and answers. I hope you enjoy this first “installment.”

How do I continue living with my body when my soul has already died?

Your soul cannot die. Your soul is your true self, your higher self, your spirit—whatever word you prefer.

Pretend You’re Going To Live For Eternity

posted in: Blog, body mind spirit, channeling | 2

The soul of man is immortal and imperishable. ~ Plato

eternity is in the present moment

You may have heard of an American woman named Norma Bauerschmidt. Norma’s been in the news a lot over the past couple years. At the age of 90, she was hit with a real double-whammy. First, her husband of 67 years died. Then Norma was diagnosed with  uterine cancer.

Sitting in her doctor’s office, she listened to him go through the standard litany of her medical options: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy.Read more

The purpose of life is soul growth. ~ Martha Magee

spirit in human formSpirit in Human Form

We have many lifetimes, an infinite amount to achieve this purpose (of soul growth). Each lifetime is a learning experience that we choose. Every aspect: our birth, what roles we will play out, karmic issues to be worked out, our parents, our country of origin, hometown, economic-social status, our bodies, our families, ethnic persuasion, beliefs, mental capacity, psychic abilities, constitutional strengths/weaknesses, soulmates, marriages, children, pets, livelihoods, lifestyles, vulnerabilities, talents, affinities, gifts, passions, challenges, addictions, persuasions, preferences, diseases, handicaps, injuries, wounds, accidents, intentions, relationships, friends, hobbies, incarcerations, triumphs, achievements, afflictions and spiritual goals, are ALL chosen by us—for purposes of soul growth.Read more

A Pearl Beyond Price by Barbara Clark and The Magdaleine Group

The wisdom of your soul is a pearl beyond any price. Every single learning and growth that you have experienced in every lifetime and between every lifetime has contributed to the brilliance, to the luminescence and beauty of the energy of your soul. It is hard if not impossible for human beings to even imagine a fraction of the brilliance of their soul and of who they truly are. And that has been part of the journey for humanity.Read more

Soul and Salvation by Hans Brockhuis

An old Dutch saying wants us to believe that if you would sell your soul and salvation, you absolutely would want to sacrifice all of who and what you are. Perhaps to live quietly as a hermit, meditating about what once was, what is and what will be. But that’s not what I want to say with these words.

I want to speak with soul and salvation about Love. Because is it not true that love forms a roof for your soul and salvation?… Read more

You Do Not Have A Soul by John Cali

I grew up in a religious tradition that taught us we could easily “lose” our souls if we did the “wrong” deed, thought the “wrong” thought, etc. etc. “Saving” our souls was our primary purpose in life.

That was then. This is now. And now I’ve realized we do not have a soul. We are our souls. Here’s what spirit said about it years ago.Read more

The Illusion of Time by John Cali

Plenty of scientific studies have shown people can project their thoughts to other people, as with mental telepathy. Most of us have experienced some form of telepathy. Today folks talk openly about it since it’s no longer a taboo topic.

Telepathy often happens instantly, with no apparent passage of time, and regardless of distance. Some studies have even shown when people send telepathic messages, the receivers get the messages days before they were actually sent.

How is that possible? If we believe in linear time it’s not possible.… Read more

Your Power by John Cali

In this blog we’ve recently talked about several of the Seth concepts, including life is supposed to be fun and creating our own realities. Today we’re going to talk about yet another of those concepts I first heard from Seth.

I spent many of my younger years living in the past or the future, but rarely in the present moment. I was forever wishing the present could be as good as I remembered the past. Or that it could be as good as I imagined the future.… Read more

Religion by John Cali

I was born and raised in the Roman Catholic Church. I practiced my religion faithfully for many years. Then I began to “lose the faith” — literally. I became disillusioned with what I perceived to be a judgemental, controlling, closed society, almost a cult. So I left.

I realize that’s not everyone’s experience with Catholicism, or any other religion. Many of my family remain faithful Catholics, and their religion brings them a peace and sense of community they would not otherwise have.… Read more

Forever Faithful by John Cali

This blog post is a bit “off the beaten path” as far as spiritual topics go. But not too far off, as it’s as story of loyalty and love. It’s excerpted from a book I wrote a few years ago,
Dogs: Heartwarming, Soul-Stirring Stories of our Canine Companions.

“In April 2001, I found myself wandering through remote northern Montana. I was writing an article on Lewis and Clark, and following their epic trail of discovery across country that remains nearly as remote and unspoiled today as it was in their time.… Read more

Forgetfulness by John Cali

Dr. Bernie Siegel tells a wonderful story about his marriage. Years ago he fell off his roof, hitting his head on the pavement. He developed amnesia from the injury. He said the amnesia dramatically improved his marriage with his wife Bobbie. But when his memory returned, he sought marriage counseling.

Fascinating story! After I thought about it, I realized what Bernie’s underlying message was. If we simply forget (or, in this case, cannot remember) all our past baggage, our relationships automatically improve.… Read more

Recognizing Greatness by John Cali

I’m sure at least some of you have heard this remarkable story of Joshua Bell, one of the world’s greatest violinists.

As arranged by The Washington Post, in January 2007 Bell got off the Metro at Washington, DC’s L’Enfant Plaza Station. Dressed as a nondescript young man in jeans, t-shirt, and baseball cap, he placed himself against a wall beside a trash container. He put his open violin case at his feet and threw in a few dollars and coins as an enticement to passersby.… Read more

Do You Believe in Miracles? by John Cali

A Course in Miracles tells us “Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.”

My spirit guides say what we call miracles are commonplace, nothing extraordinary. In fact, they are the most ordinary of events. But unless they find their way into the news media, they go largely unnoticed. And yet they happen every day of our lives.… Read more

Do We Really Create Our Own Reality? by John Cali

Today we’re continuing our exploration of the Seth teachings, as channelled through Jane Roberts. Our earlier Seth articles were Life Is Supposed to Be Fun, Are You a Victim of Yourself? and Can We Travel to Other Dimensions?

Seth talks often of creating our own realities. In his 1974 book, The Nature of Personal Reality, he says “You make your own reality.” And “You form the fabric of your experience through your own beliefs and expectations.”… Read more

Do You Know Who You Are? by John Cali

Kirk Douglas, legendary American actor and icon, told a thought-provoking little story some years ago.

Kirk was driving down the freeway in southern California when he spotted a young man hitchhiking. He pulled over and the youngster jumped in.

It was only after he was in the car that he took a look at Kirk. With a shocked expression on his face, he blurted out  “Do you know who you are?”… Read more

You and Your Soul by John Cali

John Cali

We received an intriguing question from one of our readers recently. Here it is:

Having given this quite a bit of thought, I am still unable to grasp what part our soul plays in our earthly experience.

Can you shed some light on this?


First of all, friends, it’s important for us, at the outset here, to get clear on the relationship between you and your soul.

Your soul decided, before you incarnated into this lifetime, the where, the how, the who, etc.… Read more
