Overview

THE SOUL'S JOURNEY: GUIDANCE FROM THE DIVINE WITHIN propels the reader onto a breathtaking visionary quest as the soul's longing to know the Divine is answered by the loving power of Grace. Dr. Edwards uses his personal mystical experiences to gradually unfold the tasks to be mastered and the lessons to be learned as we tread our individual path to the Divine. His wisdom is grounded in both direct experience as well as in the knowledge of Jungian archetypal psychology, Eastern and Western mysticism and mythology. The book presents a rich interweaving of personal trials and challenges, insights from poet saints and mystics, uplifting experiences of the Divine being discovered in everyday life, and lofty overviews of the spiritual terrain from different vantage points. The reader will have the good fortune to find their faith and their enthusiasm for treading their path delightfully boosted by what they encounter in this book. Joseph Chilton Pearce, noted author and lecturer on human development whose books include THE MAGICAL CHILD, THE MAGICAL CHILD MATURES and EVOLUTION’S END: "You have a treasure chest of experience - so rich a story.... The only one worth telling - the only game in town." Dr. Marion Woodman, the highly regarded Jungian analyst, author of numerous works and co-author of DANCING IN THE FLAMES: THE DARK GODDESS IN THE TRANSFORMATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS: "I find your descriptions of your experiences fascinating. I really feel that blackness - radiant blackness [of Kali] - you describe. Also your descriptions and explanations and in-depth experiences of the chakras are excellent. Many thanks for sharing this with me. I know it can be of value to many who are working so hard to bring East and West, body and mind together." Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology, author of Spiritual Dimensions of Healing and editor of Dreamscaping: "...Edwards' first person accounts are riveting. [His] descriptions of his Kundalini states are eloquent, including colorful descriptions of his imagery (olfactory and tactile as well as visual and auditory) and profound insights into the human condition. …Edwards skillfully guides his readers through a pathway on which he has been an experienced traveler."

Joseph Chilton Pearce, noted author and lecturer whose books include THE MAGICAL CHILD and EVOLUTION'S END, wrote: " You have a treasure chest of experience - so rich a story. You are the first person I have ever read, or heard from, who has experienced Her physically manifesting and entering us cell by cell - an experience I had which nearly destroyed me, so powerful it was, and so pallid everything afterward. It took rather a relearning to deal with life again, and find around me in the world what was given in that overwhelming other-worldly unspeakable event. You have a magnificent, great story to tell. The only one worth telling - the only game in town."

Kathi Kemper, M.D., M.P.H., author of THE HOLISTIC PEDIATRICIAN wrote: "Thank you so much for the privilege of reading your book. I really like all the stories. I found your book very uplifting and it made me want to spend hours talking with you, sharing stories and talking about how we are applying all these visions in our daily life. I am grateful to you for sharing these stories of your journey."

"Lawrence Edwards wrote his doctoral thesis on Kundalini. The Goddess first paid him a visit when he was 3 years old (although it wasn't until much later that he realized the magica "lady of light" was none other than Kundalini). When he humbly sought her guidance, Kundalini returned to initiate him through a series of intense experiences of mystical union... With his Jungian training, Edwards translates the images and revelationary story line of his visions into familiar actualities of the path. He also tells of unexpected twists in his own journey (past life recall, harrowing encounters with malevolent entities, sudden healing abilities) and advises readers with wisdom he's gleaned along the way. The Soul's Journey is a powerful, illuminating and inspiring book - one that anyone seeking to understand Kundalini should place near the top of their reading list.

What People are saying about this

Barbara Telynor
Barbara Telynor, Editor, Association of Transpersonal Psychology Working Titles Dec.01/Jan. 02
Lawrence Edwards is a mystic who shares a deep and abiding love and respect for the Divine in his work. Through sharing his visions and stories, honed in the fires of meditation and Eastern mythological symbolism, he unlocks the particular to expose the Universal connection to the Divine. For him, it is devotion to the Divine Feminine which is so powerful. ... Here we see the Divine Feminine as reflected by a man in search of Her. ...If your path is rooted in meditation and Eastern mythology, you will find a home in this spiritual autobiography which points well beyond itself."
Stanley Krippner
...Edwards' first person accounts are riveting. His descriptions of his Kundalini states are eloquent, including colorful descriptions of his imagery (olfactory and tactile as well as visual and auditory) and profound insights into the human condition. ... Edwards skillfully guides his readers through a pathway on which he has been an experienced traveler.
