12 Ways to Identify Past Life Lovers, Friends, or Enemies
Nov 19, 2014 by Lianne Downey
Tempers flared, decibels rose. “You agreed to pay 25% when you moved in!” I insisted. “But you use more electricity during the day than I do!” my roommate shouted back, this sweet-looking, perfectly-put-together woman who never showed this side of herself in public.
We’d been at this angry impasse for days. Finally, a thought came to me and I spat: “You know, if we don’t work this out now, we’ll have to come back as a man and woman, get married, and share a checkbook!”
At that point, the thought of marrying the other person was so abhorrent to us both that it worked like a splash of cold water. It didn’t hurt that we’d met in a past-life therapy class: we...
Cosmic Dancer Now in Hardcover!
Jul 21, 2023 by Lianne Downey
My reincarnation novel, Cosmic Dancer, has a new cover design! And it's available in hardcover for the first time, as well as paperback and ebook. Our favorite visionary artist, Roslynn E. Moore, supplied the cosmic ballerina and butterfly.
The new version also features more sketches inside (by me). Actually, I stole them from Marta/Amelia’s diary as she navigates the challenges of her psychic awakening. It's Magical Realism meets Ballet Fiction...
Who Was Ernest L. Norman?
Jul 20, 2023 by Lianne Downey
Because I often write about his work and his influence on my thinking, one of my blog readers in India asked me, "Who is Ernest L. Norman?" Here's a brief, personalized biography of this visionary scientist and author whom I never met but whose books changed my life in wonderful ways. And still do.
Are You Race Neutral?
Aug 19, 2017 by Lianne Downey
Last Friday, the day before an event in Charlottesville, Virginia, which may soon bring down a President, a total stranger and I experienced a profound moment that made the next day’s clashes that much more horrifying, and yet, gave us an insight into how the country might heal.
It’s not your usual rhetoric from social scientists, as helpful as that might be. Our solution is what you might consider “out there” in terms of its underlying philosophy. But if this stranger and I could see, feel, and understand it—simultaneously—isn’t there hope for others whose lives seem, on the surface, to come from completely different cultures? A divide we have trouble crossing?
What unites us? We are human. As human beings, we all...
5 Ways to Fix an Unhappy Past Life Relationship
Aug 26, 2015 by Lianne Downey
Knowing someone from a past life is no reason to stay in an unhappy relationship! Here are five ways to fix it, or finish it.
I often write “Dear Abby” type replies to people who comment on my posts about past life awareness. Many of them find themselves stuck in relationships that are making them unhappy. My most popular article of this sort is about identifying past life lovers, friends, and enemies. Thankfully, that begins to answer the question. They came together to rectify past life issues that have left them feeling unbalanced. But it’s never quite that simple.
My Sister and the Elephants
Apr 23, 2015 by Lianne Downey
This painting is called “Remember Me” and it’s dedicated to my big sister, Linda Jo Hunter, animal advocate, wildlife tracker, artist, and author (Lonesome for Bears). It happened by accident. Again. It all started with two new paint colors and an elephant’s eye.
Past Life Awareness May Have Saved His Life
Mar 27, 2015 by Lianne Downey
In my past life workbook, Speed Your Evolution, I suggest that even if you can’t relate to it at the present moment, you shouldn’t completely discard past life information that comes to you from an outside or untested source (say, a psychic reader or a hypnotic regression, neither of which are as reliable as your own inner knowing). Keep it in a back pocket. Decades from now, it might save your life. Ask Roberto Gaetan, aka author Robert Maxxim. I heard Roberto’s story online and asked if he’d be willing to share it with my blog readers. He graciously agreed and sent me the following:
“I was born in Cuba, 1957. I experienced several sleep-time visits to other worlds as a child, past life recalls...

My Bear Encounters in Sequoia National Park (Part II)
Dec 02, 2011 by Lianne Downey
In Part I, "Overcoming My Fear of Bears," you read about my extreme phobia of bears, a fear I’ve had since birth as the result of a past-life, unfortunately deadly encounter with a grizzly. It’s a fear I’ve worked on slowly over the years, preparation for my day of testing: If a bear suddenly emerged from the woods now, would I be able to stay calm and stay alive? Or would I scream? run? faint? vomit? die of heart failure on the spot? all of the above? You learned about my bear-expert sister’s advice, about my reliving of the past-life death and how it related to my husband, Joseph, as well. You’ve heard me mention my use of the newest, most...
Overcoming My Fear of Bears (Part I)
Nov 29, 2011 by Lianne Downey
I’ve had a terrifying phobia of bears all my life. The first time I saw one I was three years old and fell deathly ill. Ironically, my older sister is a bear expert, serving three seasons as a grizzly-viewing guide at a lodge in Alaska and writing a popular book about her experiences. She took this picture at close range. (!!)
Karma? You bet! But decades later in life, I still hadn’t overcome my knee-melting, stomach jolting FEAR at the very thought of bears. Until last week.
Are You Gender Neutral?
Jul 02, 2011 by Lianne Downey
I recently caught a story on NPR’s website about a trend they termed, “The End of Gender.” The article pointed to evidence such as an androgynous Australian model who walks runways for both women’s and men’s fashion, parents raising a child in gender-neutral fashion to allow the fullest room for choice, and a J. Crew advertisement featuring a boy with pink toenails. Not surprised by this supposed trend, I instantly thought of at least three good reasons for it, viewed through my multidimensional lens....
You Are Indestructible
Aug 20, 2010 by Lianne Downey
I flippantly promised Helen I’d explain what it means when a rabbit crosses your path (the fascinating subject of animal totems), but then I realized that I can’t talk about any Soul Pursuits of that nature until I try to explain the energy universe in which I live.
You see, when I was 21, my first Soul Pursuit came upon me without warning and it changed my perceptions of everything. From my observations since then, I’d have to say that I live in a different universe from a lot of other folks, so we’d better start there if we’re going to have a reasonable conversation....
