Have you had a glimpse of a past life? Maybe it was in a dream, a shamanic journey, or a near-death experience...
Or perhaps you have a sense that your relationship with a close friend or family member stems from a connection before this lifetime...
Many cultures believe in reincarnation (both religious and nonreligious societies), with the idea that souls evolve in ways which are unique to each soul.
And regardless of your own experience or beliefs, you can glean wisdom, guidance, and clarity from these glimpses of the past, or from sensations that you’ve “lived before.”
This wisdom can shine light on the challenges of your life, here and now.
Your existence as a soul is a continuous cycle — beginning at birth, ending upon death and reviewed between lives in the spiritual realm, with your council of guides.
Within each incarnation, your guides are on hand to help you understand and master the lessons your soul needs to complete, in order to grow.
These supportive beings have pertinent information for your soul’s evolution in this life...
For example, if you have a chronic illness, your guides might reveal to you a past life linked to your illness. You might also come to understand relationship patterns, family dynamics, and wounds you’re carrying — and that your soul intends for you to heal in this lifetime.
One of the members of your team of guides is your primary guide... a guardian angel, animal, loved one, or simply a power or force. Your higher self, or soul energy that remains in the divine realm when you are incarnate, can and often does, serve as guidance.
A deceased parent or spouse can also guide you. Widows and widowers report feeling the essence of and reinforcement from, their loved ones who have “crossed over.”
And it’s actually relatively easy, for you to develop a direct, intuitive, and reliable connection with your guides.
The key is learning to utilize and trust yourintuition, clearing the channel so you can identify your guides and receive their wisdom and support.
You can discover how, in this 7-week journey, which will feature Linda Backman’s latest teachings on the seven divine archetypes, Earth-based and interplanetary souls, as well as guided practices, journaling, and assigned readings.
Each of us as a soul embodies our immortal energy that is one-seventh of the highest light. What’s more, when we honor the qualities of our soul archetype, personal acceptance flows.
— Linda Backman
There are seven soul archetypes, according to Linda Backman, author of Bringing Your Soul to Light, The Evolving Soul, and Souls on Earth (forthcoming from Llewellyn). These seven aspects (rays) of divine energy are sequential and equal in power and importance.
Your own soul is identified with one of these archetypes, which is immortal and predetermines your strengths, gifts, and purpose throughout your lifetimes.
Your soul archetype is also foundational to the choices your soul makes in between lives (with the help of your guides) — to engage in particular relationships, professions, and other endeavors, which allow your own soul and others’ and humanity as a whole, to evolve.
Ray 1: Initial Divine Energetic Force
Purpose: Instigate change on Earth
Ray 2: Equanimity of Divine Force
Purpose: Promote equality of all people
Ray 3: Divine Force Utilized in Cooperation
Purpose: Assist people to work together
Ray 4: Expression of Divine Force Through Artistry
Purpose: Convey higher intention through aesthetic endeavor
Ray 5: Grounding Divine Force Through Structure & Logistics
Purpose: Configure higher intention into human action
Ray 6: Cooperative Groups Through Self-governance
Purpose: Function within groups to advance society
Ray 7: Alchemy of the Needs of People, Animals & the Environment
Purpose: Operate as a human culture through self-sustainment
Your soul’s evolution may also include “interplanetary” lifetimes — experienced in realms beyond Earth.
Because interplanetary souls originate from sacred celestial locations, where equality exists in a healthy lifestyle, which includes telepathic communications, lack of dissension, and suitable care of self, they bring wisdom which is essential to humanity at this time.
Chronic sleep challenges, hypersensitivity, autoimmune, and attention-deficit disorders may indicate a person is an interplanetary soul. If you don’t feel quite “at home” in your body, you may be one of the rare interplanetary souls, an increasing number of which are now incarnating on Earth, according to Linda Backman’s work.
Linda Backman brings a rare, grounded approach to working with past lives and soul evolution. Trained as a traditional psychotherapist and skeptical of New Age teachings, she became a teacher and past life regression therapist somewhat reluctantly.
After being in private practice as a therapist for 25 years, clients began presenting material which they associated with events and people in past lives.
Through these discoveries, Linda became convinced the soul evolves and is influenced by three distinct factors: Support of spirit guides; the purposeful, archetypal energy of the soul; and the nature of incarnations on Earth, and for a small number of souls, other planets.
With all that’s unfolding in the world, you might be asking yourself, why you would have intentionally incarnated during this time ?
Your guides can reveal this information to you...
Awareness of your spiritual guides, soul archetype and trajectory of your soul over many lives, are keys to balancing and healing karma and expressing your dharma, or soul gifts.
So you can better connect with Linda and her teachings, all of her sessions will be live streamed on video. This video connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of Linda’s teaching. Or, you can easily connect via audio, either through the Internet or your phone.
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 4:00pm Pacific.
In this 7-week transformational journey, Dr. Backman will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to deepen your connection with your council of guides and align your life purpose with your soul’s archetype.
Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles to master lessons carried over from your past lives for healing and transformation in your life.
Modules 1-3 will span two sessions each, to allow for deep engagement with each of the three main topics Linda will be presenting. The course will culminate with Module 4, in a single session that will help you better integrate the teachings.
You’ll receive in-depth teachings and experiential intuitive deepening practices to access guides leading to input about your soul’s archetypal “signature” and purpose. Linda will also present true-life case studies of soul regression from her client work to ground and expand the teachings. In addition, you’ll be given weekly exercises and journaling questions to deepen your access to your guides and help shift current life challenges.
Linda will be available for LIVE Q&A on most class sessions to engage with your emerging inquiries about the course material.
Everyone has intuitive capabilities. Your own intuition functions through your sensory capacities — images, emotions, body sensations, auditory information, and thought. These are the mechanisms by which you receive information from your guides.
Trusting this mechanism and in your own skill is a critical step in mastering intuitive reception. In this module, Linda will guide you to deepen awareness and confidence in your intuitive abilities and help you understand when and how your guides are “speaking” to you, especially your primary soul guide.
Divine energy, divided into seven equal, sequential aspects, is essential on Earth for humanity to evolve into an egalitarian culture. Each soul embodies an immortal energy that is one-seventh of the highest light. This signature or archetype manifests in the events, people, and choices in your current life and past lives.
Your soul archetype is unchanging and must intertwine with the other six energies to function as a unit. Whether you lean more in the left-brain, linear approach to life or the right-brain, creative direction, you are exactly who you need to be.
When you honor the qualities of your soul archetype, judgement of yourself and your life dissipate, and self-acceptance flows.
In this session, you’ll:
When Homo sapiens life began to evolve, souls from elsewhere in the universe arrived on Earth. These interplanetary souls brought their expanded level of evolution from their soul’s home base. The word Homo sapiens comes from Latin, meaning wise man. Many of these souls have come and stayed, incarnating repeatedly on Earth for tens of thousands of years. Such souls are referred to as Earth-based souls.
In contrast, some interplanetary souls embody infrequently on Earth. Often there are hundreds or thousands of years in between Earth incarnation. At this time, more interplanetary souls exist on Earth than in recent times due to the great need for advanced soul wisdom. As a rule, interplanetary souls are highly evolved, yet are challenged to function within Earth’s lifestyle of inequities and unhealthiness.
Many interplanetary souls are children in great need of being understood and not categorized. Earth-based souls must support interplanetary souls; interplanetary souls must inform Earth-based souls. Often Earth-based souls are the parent or life partner of an interplanetary soul.
In this session, you’ll come to:
Your intuitive spirit-guide bond is invaluable when you trust that you are ALWAYS able to contact your soul-level guidance. Your soul is immortal, and your communication pathway with your guide is everlasting. The “chemistry” of merging with your soul and soul guide can easily be labeled as mystical.
You expand the magical qualities of your spiritual-guide bond to embrace your this-life-purpose by merging the awareness of your soul archetype with your evolutionary life path on Earth and interplanetary. This leads to bringing your soul’s wisdom to Earth in life today and transforming humanity’s ills and struggles.
In this culminating module, you’ll discover:
In addition to Dr. Backman’s transformative 7-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful bonus materials. These bonuses complement the course — and promise to take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
In this bonus, you’ll receive two powerful works from Linda which will be great complements to your course materials. First is an article from Linda, Earth-based & Interplanetary Souls: Discovering Your Unique Spiritual Guide, which guides us to trust that each event in our life is purposeful which can make daily living easier to follow. The second is a sneak preview of Linda’s forthcoming book, Souls on Earth. You’ll receive Survival Guide for Interplanetary Souls on Earth, one of the most compelling chapters in the new book.
This audio teaching from Linda will explain how each of us brings our signature soul archetype that is an aspect of the highest consciousness to Earth, aiding our soul evolution and that of humanity.
Does your soul evolve from one life to the next and why? Where do we go when we die? Have you had lives somewhere other than on Earth? How can you use your intuition to know about your past lives? When your karma that must be released is understood and your dharma (life purpose) is embraced, then you will contribute to the evolution of our planet.
Dreams show us what the soul wants, and they give us tools and resources to live more creative and courageous lives. They unveil the possible future, enabling us to make better choices. They reveal what we need to do to stay well or get well. And they give us access to a wiser source than the daily mind. Join author and creator of Active Dreaming, Robert Moss, as he explores how to harvest guidance from sleep dreams. He demonstrates how you can enter the dreamworlds consciously and read the signs and symbols at play around you in everyday life.

Linda Backman’s course affirmed for me so many thoughts about my own purpose in life. It empowered me to trust more deeply my intuition and imagination as spiritual guidance, as well as recognizing the awesome responsibility to grow my soul for the evolution of all creation. All is One, indeed!
— Patricia Withers, Chicago, Illinois
“When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Linda Backman was that teacher for me. I advanced my knowledge about my soul’s evolution... I also feel ready to explore my karma and fulfill my life plan more effectively.
I joined the course after being diagnosed with cancer. The course gave me thoughts to pursue regarding the purpose this disease serves in my 75-year-old life.
— JoAna, Solola, Guatemala
Linda and The Shift Network, thanks for a great learning experience that combined spiritual wisdom with very practical insights.
— James Alexander, Silver Spring, Maryland
This course helped me understand my birth family and how I was so different. It helped solidify that my different ways really have a value in the family and in society.
— Ellen, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
The course [with Linda] helped explain why certain events happened in my life. Also, I left each class feeling calm and peaceful. I plan on sharing the guidance with friends I share like values with.
— Sandy, Alberta, Canada
I am grateful to have visited my council and being told I can work on this problem of “wisdom!” Because of the [sessions with Linda], I have been thinking more about how best to go about this work. One positive result has been my awakening to the knowledge I actually have my own guide and have had for eons!
— Sylvia D.
I was depressed and suicidal after my daughter’s death... I am a different person ever since [I had my session with Linda]. I visited with my daughter, who helped me with things I needed to know. She helped me to see why it all happened...
— Brina H.
In my [session with Linda], I went up into the clouds and was surrounded by a group of spiritual beings, headed by one who wore a crown with a very large ruby jewel in the front. I was suspended horizontally in the middle to receive healing. I now take myself there whenever I can...
— Margot B.
Linda’s ability to draw out of people what has been buried or repressed is remarkable and it’s no wonder she’s in great demand. I would recommend [her work] highly if this is an area of interest for you.

I want to send you this appreciation of mine and I hope that others will avail themselves of this opportunity to gain awareness beyond the day-to-day reality.
— Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi
Personally I would like to add that Linda Backman’s work reaffirms my own awareness that as people move into and discover their own spirituality, a change occurs in the world.
— Hank Wesselman, PhD
I think you’ll want to take advantage of Dr. Backman’s message that an exploration of life between lives will enable you to experience: understanding of the soul’s overall purpose and of the purpose of the incarnation under review.
— C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD
Dr. Linda Backman... her work serves as a valuable source of independent, professionally obtained data that corroborates the results Newton gained in his own practice.
— David Wilcock, Author of The Source Field Investigations
Linda does an excellent job of bringing in the many years of her own in-depth experience and expertise and mingling it with her clients’ experiences. The result is a clear and concise understanding of the "why" behind people’s challenges and losses, plans and expectations for their current life...
— Nancy Canning, Author, speaker and hypnotherapist
What impressed me most, was [Linda’s] sincere spirit and her passion for what she does. I can honestly say, that this work has changed my life, and that of many of the people I have regressed. If you are considering taking this course, I don’t think you would be able to find a better teacher than Dr. Backman.
— Marilyn Kaufman, Ontario, Canada
[Linda’s] work is the most powerful work I have ever done, short of my Vision Quest, which was probably in a similar state of superconsciousness. I cannot even express the impact on me of seeing who I am and how it fits into the Divine Plan.
— Debi L.
[Linda’s work] provided me with a sense of peace and purpose, a confidence in looking at the world, and a new way of looking at my place in it. I don’t want to set the world on fire anymore, I just want to live a meaningful life and to do my very best to help others. I’m calmer, happier, more fulfilled, easier in my life priorities, and I have a sense of purpose and rightness.
— Mungo D.
[Working with Linda] was a wake up call for me, and made me realize I needed to reconnect with this life in order to finish what I’m supposed to be doing here. I’ve had a glimpse of what’s waiting at the end of this road, and it’s more wonderful than I could have imagined.
— Diann R.
What stands out to me is the message that I am humble in my life here, but in the spirit world I am big and powerful (in a beautiful way). I have limited power in this life so as not to overwhelm people around me — so I can function in society.
— Lara P.

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
