Thank you for this post!
I have been reading Journey of Souls: Case Studies Between Lives
by Michael Newton, and your info was so relevant. Dr. Newton is a hypnotherapist who specialized in past life regression, when he started tapping into clients' memories between
lives/incarnations. He has documented consistencies in descriptions and presented an overview of what soul existence is like... and there is a lot of info about spirit guides.
I find that his material feels true to me. And it meshes with what you present here, very well.
I'm curious if you have read any of his books, Erin?
