Q: Who is Dr. John?
A: “Dr. John Christopher
Daniels” is the name taken by the spirit guide of Religious Research. In the
2000s B.C. he interrupted his earth incarnations in order to focus on reading
and interpreting the Akashic Records (soul histories). Over 4,000 years he has
become expert in deciphering these records, in order to bring information to
earth during the 20th century. This information was two-fold: (1) to
help individuals better understand themselves and solve their individual
problems and (2) to bring forth a new body of spiritual teachings for the new
age. His message inspires a sense of peace and well being. We know him to be a
friend - wise, loving, unflappable, direct, and witty.
Q: Who is Franklin Loehr?
A: Rev. Dr. Franklin Loehr is
the scientist and theologian who founded RR, and served as its director for 36
years. He authored numerous books and articles, including The Power of Prayer
on Plants, Diary After Death, and Science, Religion, and the Development
of Religion as a Science. (See our catalog.) He was a gifted thinker,
speaker, researcher, and musical
composer, as well as an author. He was also a major channel for Dr. John.
Q: What does the name “Religious Research” mean?
A: Having studied both science
and theology, Franklin Loehr understood both ways of thinking and endeavored to
“add facts to faith.” He defined religion as being a field of knowledge and
science as being a method of obtaining knowledge and maintained there was no
reason for the two to be at odds. He further defined religion as referring to
the spiritual (non-material) components of man and his universe and conducted
his religious research without reliance on superstition, speculation, tradition
or religious authorities. (See our history for more detail.)
Q: What is a Loehr-Daniels Life
A: The Loehr-Daniels Life
Readings are soul histories of real people. These life readings were given for
individual clients and included the purpose of the client’s present life and
several past lives that fed into that present one; how certain lifetimes fit
together into a larger pattern; the reasons for the struggles, lessons, and
rewards of different individuals, including those of personal relationships.
Thousands of life readings were transcribed. They are currently being
depersonalized and processed for electronic storage and reference. The life
readings are also in an ongoing process of being cross-referenced and indexed by
topic as well. There is a wealth of general information about all souls and
their different patterns of behavior available in these readings.
Q: Can you still get a
Loehr-Daniels Life Reading?
A: No. The last life reading was
channeled through Dr. Loehr before he died in 1988. Dr. John had already told us
there would be no further readings after Franklin’s death.
Q: How can I find out about my
own past lives?
A: We recommend that you
visit www.ibrt.org This is an international organization of professional
therapists who practice past life recall therapy in their counseling work.
Q: How does knowing about past
lives help us in this one?
A: A knowledge of past lives can
help to explain many things: possible reasons for phobias, handicaps, strengths
or weaknesses, particularly good or particularly difficult relationships,
recurring themes and lessons in this life. Such understanding puts any life into
a larger context of a soul growing through different stages of learning and
development and helps us to see that there is far more to each of us than we
ever imagined. Each single life is only one piece of a whole puzzle. To
understand the total picture, it helps to have knowledge of as many pieces as
