James Van Praagh Quotes

“If you’re on the path you’re meant to be on, everything falls into place; the Universe is telling you that. If you are not on the right path, you will experience roadblocks all along the way, and this is also the Universe telling you to stop, look, and ask if this is where you are supposed to be.”
“I’d rather look forward and dream, than look backward and regret. ”
“We have all been placed on this earth to discover our path, and we will never be happy if we live someone else’s idea of life.”

“As a spirit having a human experience, you can choose to not merely exist but to be fully conscious and aware of living in a limited world. When you take a conscious part in life and its multitudes of choices, you won’t let life happen to you – you will make life happen for you.”
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”
