F.C. 10-26-18: Exploring Past Lives – Healing from Other Worlds and Other Bodies

We’re nearing that time of year again, the day when the barriers to the spirit world are said to be at their thinnest. Here on Full Circle we want to celebrate Nature’s cycle of death and rebirth by exploring some other costumes we may have tried on in the past…bodies that is. That’s right, tonight we will be speaking about past lives. We’re going to get a bit soulful and also a bit spooky at the same time here …

On tonight’s show:

  • We will speak with Susan Lyons and Dianne Wallace about their experiences helping others journey to their past lives and we will explore the powerful impact this information has had on them and their clients.
  • We will listen to accounts of real people who remembered their past lives.

All that tonight on Full Circle.
