The Pact: Messages from the Other Side
Barbara Sinor, Ph.D.
Barbara Sinor’s new book The Pact will intrigue anyone who has ever been curious about reincarnation and the meaning of life in general. It offers many healing messages and the promise of new possibilities and a deeper spiritual understanding of oneself to anyone who approaches it with a sincere desire to learn.
While I have read many books about reincarnation, very few treat multiple lives that one person has experienced. Usually, these books either share multiple people’s single reincarnation experiences or they focus on one person’s individual past life and try to document it in detail to prove it is true. Barbara Sinor, however, shares many memories of past-life experiences, weaving each into a short narrative. She has lived in Atlantis, in ancient Egypt, on the seventeenth century American frontier, and in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake, and she explains what she learned in each of these lives. What results is an affirmation of life, its meaning, its many possibilities, and the immortality of the soul.
Barbara’s journey began with the death of her husband, David. Prior to his death, she had shared with him her belief in reincarnation and they made a pact—hence the book’s title—that he would try to contact her from the other side. That promise was fulfilled when she coped with her grief through journaling and channeled his messages, as well as remembering many of her own past lives, most of which were spent in some way with her husband and other family members, each time playing different roles in relation to one another.
In writing about her experiences, Barbara also realized, with David’s help, that she had a message to share with the world. As David told her in one of her writing sessions, “When you are more at peace with your life, I will guide you. I will share my journey here with you. As you begin to understand more, you will share this within your writing to heal the hearts of many.”
The Pact truly is a healing book and I am glad Barbara has shared her story with us. While I don’t believe anyone can fully confirm whether or not reincarnation occurs, to me it makes more sense that people reincarnate, not because of negative karma or as some form of punishment but by their own choice as a learning experience that propels the evolution of their souls. As our society continually awakens more to an understanding that we are spiritual beings having human experiences, a lot of the harshness of traditional religious beliefs, with their focus on hell, sin, punishment, and sacrifice, are being seen as the limiting beliefs they are, and Barbara’s book definitely is among those that refute these negative mindsets in favor of more spiritual and affirming meanings for our human lives. It is wonderful to see, for this reason, so many testimonials at the book’s beginning, including from members of the clergy. Perhaps my favorite
passage in the book is the following, which affirms much of what I have already long believed:
“Because the Oneness is all Love, there is no need to seek redemption for what our experiences are in an incarnation. We incarnate to experience All That Is, and therefore, all that is experienced expands the Oneness. The belief on Earth that one commits sins, and then needs to repent or seek redemption from a master, god, spiritual teacher, or God, is a miss-take. Each experience is a lesson, a learning experience to move you, your soul, forward on its journey. Even the experience of undergoing a trauma, physical or mental illness, or an injury is an opportunity for soul growth, which in turn supports the Oneness to evolve.”
Whether you’ve always been interested in reincarnation, have never before considered it, have been hurt by religion in your past, are a religious skeptic, or are seeking to understand your life’s meaning and purpose better, you will find much to consider in The Pact, and if you read with an open mind, I am confident you will come away enlightened, perhaps healed of pain, and better equipped to live your life to its fullest and fulfill your own incredible mission on this earth.
