Book Description

31 May 2010 Books of the Soul
So much has been written about 2012 and the global shift in consciousness. From catastrophic doom and gloom to sugar-coated messages that avoid the stark realities of what might lie ahead. But what if we were to be given channeled messages that are incredibly positive and exciting, yet also grounded? Well now we have. These messages come from a diverse group of souls who refer to themselves as 'the council'. They provide information rarely if ever encountered elsewhere, including: a) everything is just as planned, even including over-population and the exploitation of earth s resources; b) a similar shift occurred 26,000 years ago, but this time the conditions are deliberately very different; and c) so many souls are on earth now to take advantage of an incredible opportunity that has been known about, planned for and eagerly awaited for thousands of years. The attention of the entire universe is excitedly trained on our planet. If you want to know why each and every one of us has a crucial role to play in this amazing transformation, as we finally blossom into our full spiritual potential, read on...

More About the Author

Ian was born in 1959. Formerly an accountant, sales exec, business and IT consultant and avid bike and car racer, in his mid-thirties he changed tack completely to become a writer-researcher specializing in ancient history and, more recently, spiritual philosophy.

In his non-fiction "Books of the Soul" series he has developed the ideas of Rational Spirituality and of the holographic soul, while most recently he has introduced the radical concept of the supersoul. Short film clips discussing all these can be found at and on YouTube.

In his spare time he creates artwork using driftwood collected from local beaches, and rebuilds classic motorcycles.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of the Soul 18 Jun 2010
I've just finished reading this great little book, and it's a real `must-read' for anyone interested in our spiritual evolution, and `shifts in consciousness' past and future. Compared to other books I've read in this field, this one has several clear advantages: using a `clear channel' medium to talk to several different experts from the spirit world, the authors have developed a fascinating dialogue of hundreds of intelligent questions with concise, well-explained answers from the spirit world. Unlike other channelled books, which can get repetitive, or use obscure or archaic language, this one is well composed and edited and engages the reader from start to finish. I also liked the fact that it's short and pocket-sized, but for only a little book, it packs some punch, with lots of important information in only about 100 pages! Also, it has (for me) been a source of many surprising new insights into our universe, the evolution of humanity, the nature, causes and patterns of major upheavals on our planet, why we have amnesia of past lives, and of course important advice on facing what is in store for us over the next few years! I strongly recommend you to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars ... and what a future it is ! 9 Jun 2010
This is a departure from previous books I've read by Ian Lawton in that it is based on material that Ian himself has witnessed being channelled. His credentials as a rational philosopher and painstaking researcher are impeccable, as anyone who has read his previous books will know. His writing never fails to inform and inspire me, and this book is no exception. Right now the merchants of doom and gloom are having a field day with the concept of 2012 being the end of life as we know it. Fortunately this book puts it all neatly into context. It's a fact that we cannot continue to live so far beyond the means of the planet for very much longer. However the message in this book is that it is all part of a deliberate plan, although the eventual path that plan takes is still very much up to us. We retain our free will, and if enough of us can come to our collective senses we do still have time to choose a path that will ensure the survival of our species. And more than just survival, we have an evolutionary leap to look forward to. The time to act is now, and the positive messages in this book could not be more timely. If you're not sure what you should be doing for the best, right now, one first step might be to buy this book. For the first time in my life I feel as though I have at least some grasp of the enormity of the exciting opportunity that lies before us all, thanks to Ian !

5.0 out of 5 stars far out! 21 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book fascinating and exciting, overall. The global shift that is due to happen sounds scary if you think of details (eg being killed or losing someone in an environmental catastrophe), but I think the idea is, on a soul level we have all signed up for it so we can handle it. It's apparently like a huge shake-up of the planet and everything on it, and when the dust settles the world will hopefully be working more harmoniously.

There are examples of similar shake-ups in history (going back tens of thousands of years). And there are sketches of how the world could be in the future in terms of economy, sources of energy, the way we will live together, and how humans will be different.

Apparently, in preparation, there have been subtle vibrational changes occurring at a molecular level for the last few decades, and as people are born they are automatically tuned in to the updated vibrations. We can work on 'accepting' new vibrations within and around us as they occur, and alter our outlook on life to prepare ourselves for the changes ahead. There are ideas in the book to suggest how you can start this off now.

I know some people who will question the source of the information in the book, but I found I believed what I was reading. As '2012' predictions go, it is fundamentally optimistic.

The Future of the Soul, by Ian Lawton, with Janet Treloar, Hazel Newton and Tracey Robins, Rational Spirituality Press, 2010, 137 ff.

Channelled ideas from a British medium about the spirituality shifts of humankind
By Howard Jones

This unusual little book, in A6 format, reports what I have described in my title. It is focused on information from discarnate souls about the shift of spirituality that many people have talked about concerning 2012 - regarded either as a massive uplift of the spiritual soul of humankind or a `day of judgement' for those materialists who reject the concept of an interactive numinous realm. This book relates the more optimistic option. The Source claims that this is the second such change in human outlook: the last, it is said, was at the dawn of civilization some 26,000 years ago.

Some of the ideas mooted here read like something out of a Star Trek novel - ideas of shape-shifting, communication by telepathy or divination, other universes, other dimensions with different vibrational frequencies, and souls amongst us from other planets. Between incarnations, we exist as souls in other locations and dimensions.

The end of the first spirituality change was apparently brought about by a great flood - the connections with the story of Noah and, before that, to be found also in the Epic of Gilgamesh are obvious. There was another cultural shift 11,500 years ago and this corresponds to the historical beginning of agriculture and establishment of urban societies. Other historical data concerning the emergence and evolution of human societies are confirmed, but their significance is interpreted in a spiritual way.
