There’s nothing like sitting back with a good book that takes you on a adventure (sometimes not too adventurous), but to a different world than your normal life. What makes it even better is being able to make a few clicks and have it shipped to your door in two days via Amazon Prime or uploading it to your Kindle or other e-Reader device instantly. That’s the kind of on-a-whim reading I like to do!
Plus, I sometimes like to wonder about the big ideas of life somewhere other than the shower, when I’m juggling two days of to-do lists, a grocery list, and trying to remember all the things that I have forgotten. Sometimes I let this thought slip in: “What happens when you die?”
For most of my life, I thought that I knew this answer. After reading Soul Sessions by Carson Gage, I gave it more thought. Tagged as “A story of love and awakening,” I’d add that it’s full of thought and questioning. More of a spiritual look at death rather than religious.
“An engaging journey of love and spiritual awakening, Soul Sessions starts in current day Chicago, where Nick Dalton is a troubled yet highly successful Investment Banker with a gorgeous girlfriend and an extravagant lifestyle. Despite all his success, Nick falls into a deep depression after a life altering event. Just as it looks as though Nick’s life might end in suicide, enter Katrina DuMont, a gifted psychologist who is expert in both traditional and new age methods of treatment for depression. Together, using past-life regression techniques, they explore several of Nick’s prior incarnations, where he unwittingly discovers a beautiful woman who repeatedly appears as his lover and soul mate. To potentially reawaken his epic love affair, Nick is compelled to search for her in this lifetime. Thus begins an astonishing story of love and intrigue, where Nick stumbles across inconceivable answers to some of life’s greatest mysteries … and once again finds the course of his life altered.”
Sounds juicy doesn’t it? Plus, who doesn’t love the love story of man that needs saving? Most nights, I would read my digital version of Soul Sessions to unwind at the end of the day. Something that I haven’t done in years. Luckily, I still enjoy it.
Because of Nick’s struggle, I often fell asleep at night wondering if we truly had a pre-life plan and how it existed with our free will? It’s something deep to think about, but Nick’s attempt at love with this past life stranger left me wanting more from this book. The thought of missing a soulmate in your life isn’t something I worry about because of my current relationship. But, what if you were still alone or had been in a bad relationship where you were left thinking that suicide was the only option? Thinking that you had met the one in a past life or another part of your life intrigues me.
I don’t know if I believe in reincarnation, other lives, or multiple lives in any form. I know what I believe in my heart happens after death. Still it was fun to follow along with the Soul Sessions story of darkness, exploration, and love.
To keep from asking question after question to myself or to you about the deeper thinking provoked by the book, I’ll just say if you want to walk away from a book thinking: “Wow, maybe I missed something in my life too.” Then, you need to grab your copy of Soul Sessions by Carson Gage on Amazon.
