"Completing a Piece of my Karma by Exploring 
my Past Lives."
~Testimonial By Nancy Robinson, FSIM Friend Member  

"Previous to attending this workshop with Tom Hyder on Saturday May 5th, I had done a past life process where I was a French land baron/nobleman in the Middle Ages. I was not a good man and I used my possessions, including animals and humans with no respect for them, only for my impulses and needs at the moment. 
Exploring Past Lives Circle At Unity of Mpls.
Much to my dismay at first, I went right back to this lifetime in the past life process once again. My guide and partner encouraged me to stay with it.

What a remarkable completion! I went hunting with friends and servants who respected me after saying farewell to my loving wife and young children. On my deathbed from a sword wound, aware that I had not always been a good person, I asked for forgiveness from my wife, children, friends and servants. They were very loving and forgave me.

What an opportunity to experience some of the sources of pain in this present lifetime! Tom's gentle leadership and my partner's sensitive guidance lead me to complete a piece of what I have considered to be my karma. I would highly recommend this class with Tom Hyder and would do it again in an instant!. Thank you FSIM for organizing this event which I feel helped me clear some old karma and trauma." 

We had a wonderful group of 20 fellow Travelers attend the Exploring Your Past Livesworkshop by Rev. J. Thomas Hyder held at Unity of Minneapolis last weekend. We want to thank Tom and all who joined us to explore your past lives and your multi-dimensional nature.
Below are some reading recommendations by Tom who encourages you to explore all you can about the totality of your life experiences. It will change your understanding of who you are.
Many people who attended asked about the Bible translated directly from Aramaic. It's available on Amazon. If you are interested in reading more about Reincarnation, Tom recommends two classics, also available on Amazon.
  • Holy Bible: From the Ancient Eastern Text by George M. Lamsa
  • Translation From the Aramaic of the Peshitta by Michael Newton
  • Life After Life: The Bestselling Original Investigation That Revealed "Near-Death Experiences" Paperback - Special Edition, September 8, 2015 by Raymond Moody

FSIM Member Survey Results 
We thank the 20 members of FSIM who participated in the member survey late last year! This feedback has been useful to the FSIM Board in 2018 in reinforcing and clarifying priorities for our organization. See detailed survey results HERE.
FSIM Board Response
Much of what we learned through the survey reinforced the directions the board has been moving, and it clarified potential areas to target our energy.
  • We have virtually doubled our opportunities for both learning and connecting with the community in the last two years.
  • This year we have partnered with three nationally renowned presenters for special events.
  • In addition to our longstanding partnership with Wind Water School of Feng Shui, we are working to reach out and partner with compatible organizations such as Spring Forest Qi Gong and others.
  • We have undertaken, with meticulous and steadfast support from Michelle Doilney, our website coordinator, a major overhaul of the FSIM website...which will be launched sometime this summer. Capabilities include: more mobile friendly, ability to log in and keep track of your CEUs, update your listing and contact information, and more.
  • We are creating more and more opportunities for members to contribute to the newsletter and the life of FSIM in your own timing, ability, and skills.
Again, thank you to all who participated! Your thoughtfulness and consideration means a great deal to all of us on the board, and makes our work easier and more effective!
