The Souls of Champions: Reincarnations and Soul Exchanges of Select North American Thoroughbred Racehorses. Free download. Bound copies are available for $10. Proceeds will be donated to Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Kentucky.

This monograph contains dialogues with Soul “T” ~ the horse spirit channel, who asked us to share how select souls from horse consciousness reincarnate repeatedly into the physical bodies of high level race horses to enable them to win important races. The purpose of these reincarnations and soul exchanges is to bring attention to the thoroughbred and their contributions to the greater good through their life form. Spiritual development both for the soul and the human species are the primary goal.

Read about the souls that powered Secretariat, Affirmed, Alysheba, Seabiscuit, Citation, California Chrome, American Pharoah, Frosted, Mohaymen and many others.

Excerpt from Dialogue with Soul “T”:

You ask me why I (Soul “T”) exchanged souls with Seabiscuit for the match race in 1938 with War Admiral.  It was because Seabiscuit was afraid.  He was afraid he would fail, that he would fail his connections, his admiring public.  There was so much pressure on him to win that race….the whole world was watching.  And so it was done.

Seth the Candeyman

Seth the Candeyman: Reflections of a Racehorse. Bound copies are available for $10 which includes printing and binding. Shipping is extra. At Seth’s request, proceeds from the sale of bound copies will be donated to  This is a non-profit thoroughbred retirement community in Kentucky.

This monograph contains the voice of the soul who occupied this racehorse for 12 years, and was the driving force behind all 51 of his races. California bred, Seth was what is called “a claimer.”  He loved running and he loved reliving his racing history, but there was a darker side to his time as a walk-in for this dark bay thoroughbred.

The soul we called “Seth” has moved on, unable to continue to inhabit the failing body of Seth the Candeyman.  An inspiring and powerful disclosure of the life of this horse.

Excerpt:  THE SANCTUARY  (Streamed from Seth to communicator JM March 6, 2016)

Freedom ~ a place to run ~ horse friends ~ a chance to play. This is what I am grateful for here.

The life of a racehorse is confining, limiting, as exciting as the racing is, it is a lonely life without the benefit of our natural inclinations to be with others of our own kind and enjoy that company … those alliances, those challenges too.

I feel like I am becoming a new horse … on a path of discovery.  At first I waited to be invited. It was hard for me as I had been so disciplined. I have become more appreciative of the open gates, acreage to run on whenever I want, or not to run when my body isn’t up to it.  I am not used to making my own choices. While I would love pasture grass to eat, that is less important than freedom.

Conversations With Cisco.  Horse wisdom shared with us by our ambassador, Cisco.  His soul’s journey and his view of the world and beyond are inspiring. Here is an excerpt:


“I would like to heal the world.
I do this by meeting as many people as I can and getting the word
out….peace … and be gentle to all animals.
I came to this place (The Rescue) battered and broken and now I
am healthy and strong for my age.
All we need from people is a little love and we will respond tenfold
back to them.
I know many friends that have come and gone but none that have
felt that being here was not worth it.
This is a hard place but there are many angels out there doing
their work to save this planet.”

Horse Talk. This an article channeled by Cisco to Janet Meyer for the purpose of relating how some horses view other animal species in their environment. It is simple, sometimes insightful, sometimes even humorous. We hope you enjoy hearing their voices.

Excerpt from Marcy (5 YO Quarter Horse mare living in New Mexico):
There is a stream nearby. I sometimes drink from the stream. There are fish swimming around in the stream. The fish make a sound I can hear. This is their voice. It is a greeting.  It is not a warning, but an acknowledgment of my being.  I like it.  I feel welcome. They share the water with me.

Cisco and his equine soul mates thank you!

Spirit: Kings Jadaan. An Arabian Journey of Hope and Healing. Bound copies



are available for $10 which includes printing, binding and shipping. This booklet contains the communication sessions of an Arabian gelding abandoned in the high desert of Southern California who came to our Sanctuary in July 2012 for healing. His return to wholeness is remarkable. Here is an excerpt:

Birthplace Memories

I remember now where I was born and raised.  That’s where ma-mare was; those were happy days.

When I was weaned I screamed and screamed. They took me away from ma-mare and I screamed for days. Then they put us back together. I would sneak a “pull of milk.” They said I was too old to do that. I loved it and still remember the smell and taste of it. When I was starving in the desert I dreamed I had ma-mare’s milk to keep me strong.
