Thinking About Reincarnation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 06, 2017 • 39 Comments

One of the most confounding things about studying the afterlife is getting our minds around the fact of reincarnation. And it is a fact. Much as I have tried not to think about it, given my traditional Christian background, the evidence is overwhelming and consistent that each of us lives many earth-lives. Jesus taught it,...

My Thomas

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 27, 2015 • 14 Comments

(The final week of December is for reruns, so I hope you’ll forgive me if instead I write a paean to my favorite book. We’ll be back to seriousness next week. Promise!) It has been nearly a year since my spirit guide, Thomas, broke into my daytime existence and began the process that led to... Read More

Billionaire Victims

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 12, 2015 • 12 Comments

Some of the richest people on earth are spending their fortunes in search of ways to halt and reverse the effects of aging on our bodies, and to find a way to transfer human personalities to metal bodies so they can be earthbound for centuries. These wrongheaded notions are gaining steam; one recent article calls... Read More

From Thomas and Mikey, With Love

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 10, 2015 • 6 Comments

I want to apologize to you for my month-long hiatus from blogging. It never was my intention! But practicing law while I prepared for and presented at the Scottsdale afterlife conference, plus doing page-proofs for two new books and all the details of preparing their marketing, have made my whole month disappear. It is only... Read More

Springtime With Thomas

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 20, 2015 • 8 Comments

All of us have spirit guides who help us live the life-plans that we made before we were born. It must have been my primary guide who spoke to me from out of the light when I was eight, but in all the sixty years since that night I never had wanted a daytime meeting... Read More

Wealth and Power

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 13, 2015 • 13 Comments

Before we are born, we write into the plan for our upcoming lifetime a series of challenges that operate like the machines in a gym to help us to strengthen our spiritual muscles. Things like poverty, cancer, abusive spouses, the deaths of children, and other calamities are pretty obvious spiritual lessons, but believe it or... Read More

Books!

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 07, 2014 • 0 Comment

This year I have published seven books. Three are reissues of books in print, but four are newly out this year. It seems an insane achievement, like the time when I was terrified of heights but still I climbed on an open staircase to the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral dome. I really loved St.... Read More

Jefferson, Asperger’s, and Race

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 15, 2014 • 0 Comment

My husband of forty-two years is a high-functioning Asperger’s person. Asperger’s Syndrome is a disorder on the autism spectrum whose sufferers tend to be very bright but often have trouble relating to others. A book published in 2000 called Diagnosing Jefferson makes a compelling case that our third president was another extraordinary man whose blessing... Read More

The Sally Hemings Question

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 07, 2014 • 0 Comment

It doesn’t matter to me who fathered Sally Hemings’s children. Seeing how devastated Thomas Jefferson was by the death of his wife at thirty-three, at one time I even thought that if he had managed to find a new love later in life, that was fine and none of us had the right to judge... Read More

Hindsight

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 26, 2014 • 0 Comment

My mother married my father because she was pregnant. As an adult I thanked her for having gone ahead with the pregnancy and given me life, and she said, “You’re assuming I had a choice?” So I must admit to sharing the core aversion that many people have to abortion, but I am not avidly... Read More
