Radio Interview with Brad Simkins – Life Is Just Another Class

Tonight, I have the honor of being interviewed by Brad Simkins via the online radio, Awakening Zone. He is always a wonderful host!

The times for the airing on November 4, 2014 are 5pm PDT, 6pm MDT, 7pm CDT, 8EDT.  (Please note that there will be a limited time to listen to this broadcast on Awakening Zone as this online radio will close the site later in December this year.)

Karen Kubicko

As we journey through this class we call life, we encounter many obstacles. These obstacles can be fears, relationships, unfounded phobias,health, and more. It is how we overcome that brings us healing while strengthening our soul. There are many ways on the path to healing. Karen chose past life regression which awakened her to so much more.

Karen believes that life is just another class. Upon remembering several past lives through regressions, she learned that we chose if and when to go into a new life. We chose this life, our bodies, the people in our lives and what to experience. The bonus being that we are not alone – our angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones are always here for us.


Choosing Our Next Lifetime and Being Born Again

In one past life that I remembered, I chose who and when to be reborn.

I actually saw the my conception …. and then my birth. It is weird, but somehow I’m okay with it.

This is from my past life memories as Annabelle Rosalina Georges of France in 1795 AD.

After Annabelle died and went into The Light, visited a large group of friends in the greeting room, and received treatment by the healing angels, she decided to check on those left behind via a meditation area located in Heaven.

It is through meditation on the other side that those who have passed over come to visit their loved ones.

Here Annabelle watched over the husband and daughter she left behind. This excerpt is taken from my book, Life Is Just Another Class—One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression…..

I recall that during our argument, I was upset about the horses, but also because of his infidelity. I hear the French words, “Très mal.” I see him in bed with her again. This scene becomes an opportunity for me.

Rosie appears to be fine. I watch her pet the dog for a long while.

I choose my next life as the son of Hubert and his new woman. I saw my conception in that last glimpse of my husband while meditating. I am born as Hubert Georges to be close to Rosie.

I watch myself being born into this world again. Rosie is excited to have a new baby stepbrother. I grow up thin in stature with straight dark brown hair.

A Tribute to Dr. Masaru Emoto 1943-2014.

His work was so incredible. Thank you Dr. Masaru Emoto for all your photos and words.Masaru Emoto -2014

His photos of proof of how the energy of water is directly related to the words, feelings and even music that is directed to it, is truly amazing. Thank you Masaru.

He gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and discovery, that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.

He is the author of the best-selling books Messages from Water, The Hidden Messages in Water, The True Power of Water and Love Thyself. He has now also authored two children’s books, The Secret of Water for the children of the world, and The Message from Water children’s version. He was a long-time advocate for peace in relation to water.

We are made up of mostly water. Dr. Emoto’s work proved that water crystals form beautifully when beautiful thoughts, feelings are shown to it. (Even if it had been exposed to harsh chemicals at first) and that if water was exposed to mean words, harsh sounds, etc. the water crystal would be distorted and deformed.

It is so important to know that what we say and think affects us (and everything) on such a deep level.

Always use positive, loving words.

Love to you! xoxox

LIFE Is Just Another Class – One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression



After three+ years of the emotional work in remembering past lives (with all their intricacies) and writing down all that I could (in a coherent way)

Then …

working on building a platform online …

deciding to self-publish after working towards finding a publisher …

realizing that it is a boatload of work to get it self-published … and did it anyway (with some awesome help)

I approved it this morning on Amazon and figured it would take the 3-5 days like the site stated. I could not believe it took only an hour!

I am so excited!!!!!

Now, if I could just figure out the Kindle version set up. It is close… so close.


LIFE Is Just Another Class - One Soul's Journey Through Past Life Regression

LIFE Is Just Another Class – One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression

What Happens AFTER Death?

As I mentioned in my last post, I have seen my death in a past life around 20+ times out of the approximately 50 past lives I have remembered.The Light


It is always the same pattern of events: 

When I die, I realize I am dead and look down at my body (sometimes in disbelief) as

I am always above it.

I hover around and check out the surroundings, often seeing a higher perspective of the death scene.

Sometimes I go check on my loved ones I have left behind. (I am a ghost at this point so as I think of where I want to go, I am there.)

I see and talk to one of my spirit guides who has been watching over me my whole life.

All the while, there is a large opening of golden, glistening, bright energy on my right with a very warm, loving, inviting entrance.

It feels like LOVE.

I step up slightly and walk into The Light.

It is a short tunnel.

As I walk into The Light, if I look at the lifetime scene I am leaving, it fades away as the entrance to Heaven becomes clearer.

I enter the Greeting Room where most of my spirit guides are again waiting for me, as well as any passed over loved ones and many others. Sometimes animals are there too.

Then, only after greeting each and every person who came to see me arrive at Heaven, I go through a door on the left into a Healing Room. There, I am greeted by tall angels who shower me with healing LOVE. Afterwards, I sometimes rest on a bed with chakra colored blankets.

Once I am deemed healed, I walk down a long tunnel into Heaven. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. I walk out into a beautiful garden area with a large fountain. There are many buildings too.

Once here, I am able to be alerted when someone is thinking of me down on Earth and … since there is no time … I can watch over and visit them anytime.


I just saw this post by Doreen Virtue and since I am reading this book (same section of the book, in fact) I thought I would share it with you…

From Doreen:Assertiveness for Earth Angels by Doreen Virtue

Earth Angels are “nice” people, with big, open hearts, so they can’t see when they’re involved in toxic relationships. They excuse and minimize other people’s behavior: “He didn’t mean to act that way. He was having a bad day.”

Even more toxic is when Earth Angels blame themselves for someone’s harsh behavior: “If I were nicer [or thinner, smarter, richer, etc.], then he’d treat me better.” This is nonsense! Don’t take responsibility for someone’s cruel treatment.

Earth Angels tolerate harsh and even abusive relationships because they’re afraid of being alone, being in the wrong, or being judged. They force themselves to rise above mistreatment by disconnecting from their feelings.

Harsh and Toxic Behavior

When you first meet people, they’re on their best behavior. They’ll agree with you, even if they really don’t. It can take up to two years before you see the real person. That’s why it’s important for Earth Angels to take things slowly in their friendships.

In any relationship, there’s a synergy (energy exchange) between both people. Unless you’re being authentic, you don’t know how well you interact. If you’re both pretending when it comes to your feelings and opinions, and being falsely polite and insincere, there’s no real relationship.

Here are the most common types of toxic relationship behaviors for you to recognize, and how to deal with them in honest and assertive ways that are healthful for you and the other person. These examples give you guidance as to how to assertively handle toxic situations.

Most Earth Angels have been beaten up by life and suffer from low self-esteem and feelings of worthlessness. So they often don’t recognize abusive and toxic patterns in their relationships. Earth Angels don’t know any better than to accept hurtful behavior from others. They deny and excuse such behavior, while secretly suffering in silence. So this list will help you not feel ashamed or alone in your relationship patterns, and also give you a way out. 
By pointing out these harsh relationship patterns, we’re not judging the individuals involved. Many times, Earth Angels are so wary of being judgmental that they overdo acceptance. This isn’t about judging another person; it’s about being aware of the dynamics within the relationship.

Sometimes, style differences between you and the other person cause the harsh energy of the relationship. For example: You’re quiet and gentle, and he’s loud and rough. You’re spontaneous and go with the flow, but she’s all about planning and organizing. Through awareness and honesty, style differences can be negotiated harmoniously if each person is willing to compromise and have compassion for the other person’s style. However, where abuse is involved, the relationship needs to end and healing needs to begin.

This list is to open your eyes and help you to be aware of your honest feelings when you’re with other people. It also gives you some suggestions for assertive ways to manage these various scenarios. There’s no implication that you need to leave or abandon anyone; however, you do need to take care of yourself and any children affected by your being in a toxic relationship.


The person who continually interrupts you doesn’t really care what you have to say. Interrupters are people who are anxious to hear the sound of their own voice, and who are convinced that they provide the most interesting and accurate conversation. Very often, the interrupter is someone who’s abusing caffeine or other stimulants, making him or her anxious and hyperactive.

— How this relationship affects you: If you’re in a relationship with an interrupter, you begin to talk really fast to get your words in before they can be interrupted. You start to feel anxious whenever the interrupter initiates conversation with you.

— How to handle this: Assertive Earth Angels will stop someone the first time he or she interrupts them and say “Excuse me, I wasn’t finished talking” in a very calm and peaceful way. If you touch the person’s arm while saying this sentence, the impact is even stronger. Remember that you’re helping the other person become aware of a habit that’s likely blocking him or her in all other relationships, personal and business. You’re teaching how to be a better communicator.


Correcting is similar to interrupting, except worse. People who are prone to this behavior not only interrupt you, but also “correct” what you’ve been saying. They may point out errors in your grammar or pronunciation, like your old English teacher. Or they may tell you much more about the topic you’re discussing.

While it’s great to learn new facts and proper grammar, it’s this person’s continual correcting that becomes tiring. No one likes to feel small or stupid, and that’s how you feel when you’re with this person. You always feel “one-down” from him or her. Some people engage in correcting behavior because that’s how they show that they care about and love you. They believe that by “improving” you, they’re helping you. Other times, correctors conduct this behavior out of an unconscious habit.

— How this relationship affects you: Anxiety around a corrector is a normal response. You walk on eggshells, worried about the next mistake you’ll make. If you live with one, it will affect your self-esteem. You may doubt your own intelligence, and give your power away to the other person, because you believe that you can’t do anything right.
— How to handle this: As an assertive Earth Angel Dreams, you must handle these situations head-on, so you’ll need to tell the corrector how you honestly feel. By giving candid feedback to the corrector, you help him or her develop better relationships. If his or her correcting style annoys you, it annoys everyone else, too. So, the next time this person corrects you, take a deep breath, and say: “Sometimes I feel that you’re more my teacher than my friend. And while I appreciate you adding to my body of knowledge, I’d prefer to have conversations where it’s just us sharing our feelings instead of you trying to teach me.”


People who one-up others have done everything better than you, on a larger scale, and they want to tell you about it! Any story that you relate will be scarcely digested before it is regurgitated in a more grandiose version—starring them. Such people only listen enough to hear the topic of discussion so that they can immediately go to their memory banks and extract their experience of that situation, which was over-the-top amazing.

They’re so insecure and desperate for attention and approval that they step all over other people’s spotlight to grab it back for themselves.
— How this relationship affects you: Your body exhibits signs of tension and resentment. You feel unheard and unappreciated. In this sort of relationship, you feel lonely because it’s a one-sided conversation at all times. You also feel disappointed that the other person won’t share in your excitement or other emotions concerning the experiences you’re relaying.

— How to handle this: Such people have no idea that they’re upsetting, annoying, or pushing others away with their superiority complex. They’re extremely lonely and wonder why people aren’t impressed with their accomplishments. They believe that if people are impressed, they’ll be loved and valued. Once you understand the depth of such a person’s loneliness and desperation to be loved, an assertive Earth Angel can go from there.

The heart of assertiveness is being honest and taking responsibility for your feelings. So never point the finger and claim that the other person is making you angry. It’s his or her behavior that’s triggering you. Let the one-upper know that you value and admire him or her, as long as that’s sincerely how you feel. You don’t offer these compliments unless you really believe them, or else you’re manipulating and trying to control the other person’s reaction to you, which is dysfunctional and dishonest.

Explain that you’d love to share your own experience and enjoy the details, without turning the tables to talk about his or her experience right away. Tell the person that sharing experiences is like enjoying a really good meal, and you want to savor each course one at a time.

Be very clear with other people about your expectations for the relationship ahead of time. Your ego will argue with you, saying you can’t tell others the truth or they won’t like you. The real truth is that unless you speak your truth, you’re nothing but an empty shell to other people. When you treat yourself with self-respect, other people respect you.

Do You Have a Favorite Past Life?

I was asked this question recently by a new blogger friend… Thank you DreamBlogger for asking.

I have remembered nearly 50 of my past lives, some in more detail than others.Walking the path to learning

To pick a favorite…. hmm.

I have healed more with some, so they have a special place in my heart.

I have really enjoyed remembering others.

They all have their good and harsh (usually the death) moments.

My favorite ones have been as women. Maybe it is because I can relate as a woman or simply coincidence.

Here are a few basics of my favorites:

I was Helen in New York City having the best day ever dancing at a speakeasy club in 1927. That was a lot of fun to remember. I felt like I was dancing.

I was also Annabelle in France living a very upscale life while enjoying listening to a harpsichord in 1795. The beautiful music brought tears to my eyes.

But, my absolute favorite was as Aleena. She was a metaphysical teacher … her whole life revolved around love. (Plus, I had a very hot boyfriend. lol.)

My absolute favorite part of all of my past life regressions was the opportunity to see the light, to walk into Heaven to visit my spirit guides and angels. There are no words to describe the love you feel at that moment.

I have more on each of lifetimes and how they helped heal my life now in my book, Life Is Just Another Class — One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression. I am currently making some final touches to the manuscript. I offer a Free Chapter to read before it is published.

Sometimes it Is the Little Things That Matter in a Past Life Regression


Small things we notice during a past life regression can have great meaning in our lives.

While remembering being Jezebel, a lifetime as a little girl in Eastern Europe, I noticed I had on a pair of warm socks.

Being only five years old and experiencing a scary time, I tried to focus on something that made me happy.


Seems silly and insignificant, I know, but those socks were keeping me warm. It was early spring and the weather had not warmed up. Sitting on the cold linoleum floor and wearing a threadbare dress; I was happy wearing socks and keeping my feet warm.

In my life now, I love socks.

Fun socks.

Holiday socks.

Colorful socks.

Warm and fuzzy socks.

Socks are the number one gift that people give to me.

Is this a carry-over from my past life? Quite possibly. It is the happy thought just before I die as Jezebel.

Think of a past life you remembered (or try one now). What small details did you notice? Were they relevant in your life today?

I’ll bet they are.

Socks for Seuss - a made-up book

Sounds like the start of a Dr. Seuss book—just like … One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish or The Foot Book … left foot, right foot. Feet, feet, feet. Love Dr. Seuss books!



The Great Gasby and My Life in the 1920s

You know, I have always loved the Roaring 1920s. Always. I am not sure exactly when I started liking this era, but it seems like forever. I have always wanted to have my hair fixed in a cute little finger wave bob. (Goodness knows, I have tried.)

But why?

Since I was in grade school, I have loved the 1920s anything. I used to say, “I must have had a past life in the 1920s.” I never knew that for sure until a few years ago when I remembered being Helen Merkowitz who died tragically in 1927.

(More on that in my number one searched blog post: “Do Birthmarks Disappear When a Past Life is Remembered?” Mercy, can you believe I posted my high school photos!?!)

I love 1920s clothes, the dancing, the music… Ahhhh, Big Band music. I really enjoy listening to that.

Ginger Rogers – Charleston Scene from Roxie Hart (1942)

The Roaring 20s, flappers dancing the Charleston

Today, I am thinking of Helen since the movie, The Great Gasby, is coming out. I wish I had read the book in high school, as most others have. (It is never too late to read it.) I look forward to watching the movie today.

The only reason I am seeing it, is because it is about the 1920s … really. I love looking at their fashion, hair, décor … all of it. The men’s suits … eye candy to me. The women’s fashion … comfortable, sexy and beautiful.

As Helen, I remembered saving money to buy an outfit for my night of dancing. I had it laid out on the bed ready to wear for the evening and admiringly loved it. During the regression, I went into great detail to describe it … even commenting that it was uncomfortable to wear a slip under the dress, but “appropriate” to do so. It is so funny the details I chose to remember from a past life.

Remembering that lifetime was very healing for me. By a surprise to me, the birthmark on my neck (which resembled a bullet hole) faded noticeably since I remembered this past life—that in and of itself was unexpected and cool. However, now I know why I love the Roaring 20s so much. I really did enjoy myself in that lifetime—until the mob shot me during one night out in an illegal club, of course.

Prohibition prevented me from going out dancing. Dancing must be in my soul… I do LOVE it. I apparently loved it so much as Helen, I risked my life for it.

The other day, I got the opportunity to go out dancing. I noticed a few people wearing fashion that was reminiscent of the 1920s style (fringes and all) … oh please, please, please, do come back into style … I would wear it. Absolutely.

(Do you want to read more on Helen? Do you know someone who works at a publisher?)

What do you love … and cannot explain?

Do You Have Questions on Past Life Regression?

Let me help you feel more comfortable remembering your own past lives…

Ask me a question

I am excited to announce I was interviewed on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 8 pm EST by Brad Simkins of the Inner Guide Empowerment Blog Talk Radio Show. We  discussed how life truly is just another class and the healing that can happen through remembering past lives.

I shared the account of my soul’s journey through life, death and going into the light and how it has healed me on multiple levels in the hopes that I will inspire and excite you to go fearlessly on your own soul’s healing journey.

My book (I just finished editing and updating), Life Is Just Another Class – One Soul’s Journey through Past Life Regression, is an account of not one, but sixteen of my past lives and the emotional, spiritual and physical healing that has positively influenced my present lifetime.

Inner Guide Empowerment Radio Show is a heart-centered, purpose-driven show to bring healing and positive energy to individuals and communities throughout the world.

If you have questions… let me know! I will be happy to try to answer them.

The Wavelength of LOVE

In talking with a good friend of mine the other day, I made a realization.

We vibrate at the level of what we attract. Truly. As I mentioned in my recent post, we thusly repel what is not vibrating at our level.

Positive things attract more positive things—that is the basis of the Law of Attraction. (Thank you Esther, Jerry and Abraham Hicks.)

Like attracts Like.

Fear attracts Fear.

These talks made me recall the image of the wavelength of love I had been shown by a healing angel. I visited with these angels while in the light (during a past life regression).

While experiencing a healing, I asked the healing angels what type of energy they use for healing. They said, “Love,” and they showed me what that wavelength of vibrating energy looked like. It is smooth and steady. The healing session feels like very intense Reiki being poured on me.

I drew it for you to see…

love wave

And Fear… it is a short, discombobulated, mess of a wavelength. No wonder it feels so wrong.

What wavelength do you resonate with today?

On Picking a New Lifetime – The Slide Show of Choices

After re-experiencing a past life death, I see the Light. It shimmers in gold and oozes love.The Light (well, actually I took a photo of the sun, it looks just like it.)

I wanted to know more. I wanted to walk in through. One day, not that long ago, I did. I thought it would be hard, but it was not. My fabulous, awesome, loving, patient, (I could keep going) spirit guides led the way.

After walking through the light and visiting with the Healing Angels, I walk out into the rest of Heaven. I see gardens and a long walkway. My guides told me that I was only ready to see a few of the buildings present there. I visited the Hall of Records that houses each and every soul’s Akashic record.

I wanted to know what would happen in my very next lifetime. I include sixteen past lifetimes in the book I have written, Life Is Just Another Class–One Soul’s Journey through Past Life Regression. I wanted to see how I picked the next life. The first few times I entered, I called the building the “life picker building.”

I could not read the building’s name. The words are in Sanskrit. (I had to call it something.) My spirit guide assures me that when I am really there and not just visiting, as I do during a past life regression, I can read it.

In this building, I meet with a councilmember on my spirit guide team. After I visited this building a few times, my spirit guide thought it was funny I called it the “life-picker building” and told me that the proper name was Educational Studies (as it is engraved on the front) or called the Education and Studies building.

I walk up the steps to the Greek-style building and enter a beautifully carved arched doorway. Once I open the door, I enter a waiting room. (There is not much of a wait though.) I could enter five potential rooms. A councilmember walks out to greet me and we enter a room together.

Inside the hexagon-shaped meeting room there is one chair. I sit in it. My councilmember stands to the right of me. I have met three different members. Usually there is just one member, but once two of them were there to help me. They are all very loving and supportive. They remind me that it is still my free will to choose a next life.

In front of me, I see five walls that double as individual movie screens. When I am ready, they show me anywhere from two to five lifetime choices. I have asked for more to choose from and I have immediately eliminated a few. Each choice is based on the lessons I had chosen long before I started incarnating.

Dear spirit guides ... thank you for this life ... I have finally learned how to live.

I have seen this room after sixteen different past lifetimes. It is as though I have gotten the chance to re-witnessed what I have picked sixteen times, but it feels like I am actually picking at the time I re-experience this.

Once, I picked the very next lifetime included in my book. That was cool.

The movies are not a straight through preview of the entire next life. They are short snippets of parts of the life. It is played like a moving slide show. They all play at once. Surprisingly, it is not hard to watch more than one lifetime choice.

Then I pick one and I focus on it to see if I like it for sure.

Hard to imagine sometimes, but you picked your life.

You Chose this Life

You chose your life and all its trials and tribulations.

(Hard to fathom, right!)

In my book, Life Is Just Another Class—One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression, I have written the stories of sixteen of my past lives. Over the past two months, I walked in through the light at the end of each of these past lives and caught glimpses of my next lifetimes.Life Is Just Another Class-One Soul's Journey Through Past Life Regression

I added this information to my book (plus 8000 more words – eek!)

I chose this life and all the ones I have experienced before. We all choose.

I was given anywhere from two to five lives to pick from based on what I CHOSE to learn. My spirit guides lovingly helped to show me the way. My council members worked with me to pick the best choice in a Greek-style building called Educational Studies which I affectionately called the “life-picker building.” (They thought that was funny—our guides are so easy going and fun!)

Always, it was our own free will to choose to come here and to learn in this class called life. Always.

This weekend, I will re-read my entire manuscript, make some final edits and send the updates to my loving literary agent.

Life is good.

Thank you for being a part of my life. We chose each other.


Life Is Good … But it Gets Better When You Start to See the Synchronicity

Synchronicity.the sun in my hand

In the past six months or so, I have noticed the word synchronicity a lot. A lot is an understatement. It is more than once a day.

Tonight, I am working on adding what happens once I go into the light in between the sixteen lifetimes I include in the book I am nearly finished writing. I have ten lifetime chapters updated so far.

During the in between life period, I am able to chat with my spirit guides and on occasion, angels. It is as though they are sitting in my living room—truly remarkable. I wish I had known this, years ago. (They say anyone can do this by the way.) We are so loved.

After one particularly difficult lifetime, the angel said, “It seems like lives are tossed around randomly, but it is all for a reason and synchronicity is occurring.”

In typing in this quote by an angel that greeted me in the light, I felt compelled to look up the word synchronicity.

Of course, I visit Wikipedia’s listing on Synchronicity.

Who knew Jung was the one who introduced the concept? I did not.

He goes on to say that synchronicity has parallels to aspects of relativity theory (Albert Einstein) and quantum mechanics (Wolfgang Pauli).

I do love Einstein and have half a blog post written on quantum theory… synchronicity at work.

No sooner had I finished reading the Wikipedia information, I was notified of a new comment on my blog. This comment led me to read more on Linda’s blog. She has a few postings, one of which is on (can you guess?) synchronicity.


More synchronicity.

It gets better. Within her blog she talks about a song I like. I just found out who actually sang it in the past few weeks thanks to a good friend. She quoted some of the words to it.

Yes, I said aloud, “Shut up!”

She ends her blog with one of my favorite paintings by Dali (of which I have re-painted a small section of that hangs on the wall at my sister’s house. I like it that much.)

Life is good … but it gets better when you start to see the synchronicity.
