Discover Why Your Soul Incarnates, What Occurs in Between Lives, How You “Pre-plan” Your Lives, and What Happens When You Die

Explore Your Soul’s Journey in This and Past Lifetimes to Better Understand Your Life Experiences, Gain Insights Into How to Clear Karma and Clarify and Live Your Life Purpose

Like most wisdom seekers, you’re probably intrigued by the idea of past lives.

Maybe you’ve felt connected to a person or place inexplicably or even had glimpses of lives very different than the one you are living.

What you may not know is that the study of past lives has advanced substantially in recent decades — particularly through the work of past-life and between-lives regression therapists who use hypnosis and guided visualization to access the further reaches of our psyche.

Their work shows that you’re on a bigger adventure than your single lifetime, and uncovering the larger trajectory you’ve been on can greatly expand the scope of your identity, sense of purpose and entire life path.

Regression therapists would even say that getting to know your soul better and understanding how it has evolved, how it is currently evolving and your role in this evolution is perhaps the ultimate spiritual journey.

Balance Your Karma, Discover Your Dharma

Through the lens of regression therapy, your life is viewed as having a divine purpose.

Before you were born — with the assistance of spirit guides and wise elders — you designed a plan for this incarnation, choosing the family, culture, era and life circumstances that would best serve your spiritual advancement.

Exploring your soul’s transformation over time can provide insights into how to mitigate or balance your karmic patterns. Balancing past-life karma is the key to aiding your soul’s evolution. Healing relationships, caring for one’s self, and working through fear and loss can help you mend the wounds of your past lives and shift the course of this and future lifetimes.

This can include understanding why you attract particular relationships again and again, why you struggle with certain illnesses, and why you’ve experienced particular losses.

In shifting karma, we not only have the opportunity to better our life in the here and now, we open the door to our spiritual advancement and the evolution of our soul.

What’s also interesting is that there’s a simple, yet complex, truth about soul evolution: your soul has an overarching intention or dharma that carries over from one lifetime to the next, and each of your lives has a separate blueprint that expands and enhances your soul’s progress.

How do you track your soul’s evolution and help it — and yourself — along this sometimes treacherous journey to live a more purposeful, meaningful and evolved life?

How does an exploration of this lifetime, past lives and in-between lives help guide you in this process? And what can it tell you about your karma and how to shift it?

Ultimately, through exploring your soul’s journey, you gain clarity on why you’re here, what your purpose is, and how best to fulfill your role in assisting the greater evolution of the planet.

Be Mentored by an Expert in the Field

In the Soul Evolution course, renowned author, psychologist and regression therapist Dr. Linda Backman will take you on a profound inner journey in which you’ll examine the elements and experiences of your current life, how past lives are affecting you today, the souls you’ve known in these lives, the soul agreements you’ve made and how your life fits into the whole of humanity.

You’ll also explore what happens between lives as you transition from one life to the next, including how your soul navigates into a higher realm with the help of loving ancestors and other spirit guides as it safely finds its way to its next incarnation.

Dr. Backman’s approach to soul exploration is not religious. She bases her understanding of soul evolution on vast professional research and decades of case studies.

As a clinical psychologist and regression therapist, she’s worked with hundreds of clients, assisting them in experiencing past life regressions and aiding them in using their discoveries and new understandings to help heal past wounds, mitigate karma and live more freely and fully.

To help us experience this important work in a way that provides lasting results, Dr. Backman uses both right-brain and left-brain approaches. You’ll tap into your intuition, emotions and feelings, yet also ground these insights in a deeper understanding and shifting of unbeneficial behaviors and patternings to help you escape stuck places and thrive.

During this richly transformative 7-week program, you’ll discover:

  • Who you are as a soul and why you’re here now
  • The purpose of the mother, father and family you were born into
  • How to tap into your intuition, which is visual, physical, auditory, cognitive and emotion-based
  • How to recognize unresolved past life circumstances
  • How to embrace past life accomplishments
  • How your soul can communicate with your loved ones who remain in body
  • The meaning of karma and dharma, and how to explore these elements in your life today
  • How we incarnate in soul pods, and how to meet members of your pod
  • How life circumstances, including illness, are meant to enhance your tenacity and evolution
  • Ways to take charge of your current life to make decisions in alignment with your thoughts and feelings and passions
  • And much more!

In the Soul Evolution program, you’ll become an active participant in the shaping of your life — and future lifetimes — as well as in discovering and balancing the imbalances, or missteps, of your past lives.

We all have karma, Dr. Backman assures us, yet, we also have free will and can rewrite our soul agreements. There’s always the opportunity to discover and choose a better way, and in doing so, not only help heal and fulfill your own life, but also find your intended place in the world and start to make your greatest contribution to humanity.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.

In this 7-week transformational intensive, Dr. Backman will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to explore your soul’s trajectory and some of life’s biggest questions.

Each weekly LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles.

Module 1: Soul Energy
Our Origin & Reason for Being (May 2)

Life is a continuous cycle — beginning at birth, ending upon death and reviewed between lives in the spiritual realm. It starts anew with each incarnation, propelled by the soul’s innate desire and inclination to progress in wisdom from one lifetime to the next.

Your incarnate soul is a fragment, a sliver, of the totality of your divine energy or higher self. The aspect of soul that is “you” comes from — and remains connected to — the celestial realm during your life on Earth. Upon your physical death, the holographic portion of your soul that arrived before birth takes its leave and returns to the spiritual realm. Incarnations come and go, while soul consciousness is eternal.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Tap into your intuition, which is visual, physical, auditory, cognitive and emotion-based
  • Balance and integrate perspectives of life based on religion and spirituality
  • Begin to track indicators from the first 5 to 10 years of your life that point to who you are as a soul and why you’re here now
  • Begin to understand the purpose of the mother, father and family you were born into

Experiential:

  • Practice intuition (using all sensory modalities) to seek “guidance” of the first sign in current life of your life intention

Module 2: Reincarnation
Past Lives Resolved & Embraced Today (May 9)

Your soul travels a gradual journey from one life to the next to evolve as an individual and a collective. Through our lives we may climb “challenging hills” to reach our goals, at times falling short and other times achieving. Some lives are more like a Sunday afternoon drive with gentle intentions and a pleasant result. The point is: Incarnation is a requirement of the higher realm to “grow” as a soul, affecting soul advancement and the wisdom of ALL.

When you “mend” your soul through reincarnation, the “seam” of your ongoing soul evolution will be tightly sewn through the knowledge and release of who you’ve been, along with your actions. Through ongoing balance and healing and the details of prior lives, you evolve as a soul.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The essential nature of reincarnation and your higher self
  • How life on earth evolved from the time of Homo sapiens until now
  • How to discover indicators of your past lives in elements of your current life
  • How to recognize unresolved past life circumstances
  • How to embrace past life accomplishments

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to discover a past life element that has surfaced in life today

Module 3: Guidance
Intuiting Guides, Guardian Angels, Loved Ones & Our Higher Self (May 16)

I die and sense my soul flowing easily out of my body.
— Hypnotherapy Client

Soul regression hypnotherapy clients share dramatically similar experiences when a past life has ended, revealing a common spontaneity and felt-release. The process of our essence transitioning out of the body upon physical death emerges. It’s as though your soul has a map or autopilot. When needed, each of us is chaperoned across the human-to-spiritual bridge. In this time between lives, we evaluate the results of our most recent life and consider the circumstances and intent of an upcoming lifetime.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • There’s an afterlife that has been “mapped” through 10,000 or more regressions
  • When you die you’re never alone in the higher realm
  • Your soul can communicate with your loved ones who remain in body
  • Soul evolution occurs primarily when we are incarnate, rather than between lives

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to ask a specific question to your guide about the meaning of an event on your Life Line

Module 4: Afterlife
Higher Self’s Home Base & Soul Group (May 23)

In each incarnation, you’re a composite of three aspects: Your soul energy, which is your perpetual foundation that remains from life to life; your life blueprint, which is rewritten from one life to the next, furthering your soul progress; and your particular body with a human personality, which is attached to and supportive of your life blueprint and designed intentionally to help you achieve the agreed upon goals of your life this time around.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The meaning of karma and dharma, and how to explore these elements in your life today
  • That we incarnate in soul pods, and how to meet members of your pod
  • That life’s blessed and challenging moments are purposeful, and how to discover such events
  • That free will choices are placed in front of you and how to recall examples of such moments

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to connect with your higher self and recognize your home base (either earth-based or interplanetary) and your soul group or pod

Module 5: Pre-birth Life Plan
Intentions & Free Will (June 6)

As a soul, everyone has a purpose. I am no different. We are all here to help and influence others. Each soul adds a particular influence. My job is to link, making souls feel that they belong, that they have a reason and a purpose for being here.
— Susan, From Bringing Your Soul to Light

At the moment of our birth, we embody on earth with purpose. Our life intentions may be subtle and more human relationship-based, as in the case of Susan, OR our key objective could be more left-brained and linear, such as discovering the cure for a serious illness. In addition, our life agreement is multifaceted, with more than one commitment.

Often, we’re faced with decision-making to veer off in a new direction or to manage our disappointment when an aspect of our life doesn’t turn out how we had hoped, needing to move onward. To round out the unraveling of our life events that aid our soul’s evolution, both romantic relationships and those of family/friends are unfailingly designed to either support us or to teach us to detach.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • Your life purpose(s) and intent
  • How life circumstances, including illness, are meant to enhance your tenacity and evolution
  • Family, friend and romantic alliances that are to remain strong and beneficial
  • Family, friend and romantic relationships from which you are to detach

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to accept pre-birth intentions and honor your free will choices in your Life Line

Module 6: Life Purpose
Original Plan, Choice Points and Challenges in Relationship & Physical Concerns (June 13)

Each of us as a soul has a “team” of spiritual guides. One of the members of this team is your primary soul guide. Many refer to their sense of direction as 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. Widows and widowers have reported through Gallup Poll research that they feel the essence of and reinforcement from, their deceased spouse.

We’re never alone and are always supported. The key is learning to utilize and trust your intuition to receive input from the higher realm. Guides provide options, yet never force a decision. It is also true that guides may frequently lead you to provoke a life circumstance they believe you need in order to make a tough decision and further the advancement of your soul’s evolution.

This week, you’ll discover how to:

  • Regularly utilize a spiritual practice to deepen intuition
  • Recognize when a guide or guiding force is communicating
  • Feel and sense a loved one who has passed
  • Embrace the understanding of how soul evolution, guides and the higher realm are interconnected with humanity’s evolution

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to understand intentional relationship or health challenges past and present on your Life Line

Module 7: Soul & Humanity’s Evolution
Actively Being Your True Self (June 20)

You’re here now with purpose. As an aspect of divine energy, your life is not simply about creating pleasure and abundance. Each of us has the opportunity, whether small or large, to create a positive impact on society’s need to progress toward unity consciousness.

Reincarnation explains how our past life karma or misdeeds, and our dharma or accomplishments, show up in life today to be embraced and healed. The significant people who come into your life are partners on the road to transformation. Each of our lives are not intended to be consistently smooth and lacking challenge. Your soul’s evolution arises from the warm and cozy life events, along with the most distressing times. As we expand through each and every poignant life experience, our individual soul advances. In order for the greater whole of humanity to transform, we are to be active participants in life.

In this final module, you’ll discover how to:

  • Balance your emotion-based, right brain with cognitive-linear, left brain approaches to life
  • Recognize the source of your dis-ease that holds you back from life’s progress
  • Take charge of your current life to make decisions in alignment with your thoughts and feelings and passions
  • Step up to be an active participant in social action causes that are in keeping with your fervent interests

Experiential:

  • Guided intuitive experience to receive guidance about literal, active steps needed in life today to enhance soul evolution of self and all — to be of service

Past Life Soul Exploration: Transforming Humanity
Video Presentation From Linda Backman

Millennia ago souls came to earth from elsewhere in the Celestial Realm. As evolving embodied souls, some of us have experienced innumerable incarnations on earth, creating a familiarity of how to function and cope with the ills of human life. Incarnate extraterrestrial (ETs) have experienced as many as a few to as many as hundreds of earth lives. ET incarnations are increasing right now due to the need for their wisdom and to aid humanity’s progress. Our goal as souls is to incarnate repetitively, evolving as we go. ET souls face particular challenges that many Earth based souls do not. In this presentation, Dr. Backman will share numerous client examples of gifts ETs bring, as well as the daily challenges of living on unfamiliar earth. For example, the autistic spectrum is often a mislabeling of an ET soul. How to recognize and cope with being an ET or the family member/friend of an ET will be discussed.

Past Lives & the Time Between: The Purpose of Your Life Today
Audio Presentation From Linda Backman

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 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.

What People Are Saying About Linda Backman...

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 Soul Evolution 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 that fits into the Divine Plan.
— Debi L.

The BLSR session provided me with a sense of peace and purpose, a confidence in looking at the world & a new way of looking at my place in it. I don’t want to set the world on fire any more, I just want to live a meaningful life and to do my very best to help others. I am calmer, happier, easier in my life priorities, more fulfilled 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 [from my work with Linda] 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 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 awaking 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 have been 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 is no wonder that she is in great demand. I would recommend [her work] highly if this is an area of interest for you.
— Bryn

Hank Wesselman, PhD, Author of The Evolving Soul

I think you will 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, Author of Bringing Your Soul to Light

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...

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line.

Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.

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.
