Jerry Mangan


I have educational backgrounds in the fields of Psychology, Counseling, and Metaphysics. The latter field caught my interest some twenty-five years ago, sending me on a quest for the spiritual meaning of my life. "Ensouled" captures elements of that journey, the discovery of my soul, Edward, and our ensuing, telepathic conversations concerning our intimately shared existence.

Smashwords Interview

This is a very intimate search for the meaning of your life. What was the greatest benefit you derived from writing it?
I think it was unraveling what had frequently been a confused and troubling existence to that point. Learning that I had the soul, Edward; and that he had chosen me to incarnate into to pursue his spiritual goals of Humanitarianism, Healing, and Experiencer--in other words, the very defining purposes of his and my existence--allowed me to understand (and finally accept) many of my previous actions. Even as it served to free me from a very unpleasant and demeaning physical addiction. The two embarrassing and shameful experiences I discuss in the book concerning the nature of that addiction are there at Edward's insistence: as potential teaching tools for other, similarly affected, men and women.
What hopes do you have for your book? How do you feel it might best serve your audience?
I began the book because Sylvia Browne, a psychic whose spiritual insights and informative books I greatly revered, told me I was going to write the spiritual journey of my life. That altered, however, when Edward began making his appearance in the writing. The more we communicated telepathically, the greater became my belief that others of us could become familiar with our souls and discover our life purposes in similar fashion. I also wanted to reveal how our Creators further assist us by assigning spirit guides and angels--along with our souls--to accompany and guide us throughout the entirety of our lives. I hope readers view this as Edward's and my spiritual path; realizing that they, too, possess equally unique and complex stories to uncover as well.
