The Afterlife

Environment in heaven Agree: 7 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsThe very first thing that is created for a spirit as it makes its transition to the spirit world is a life review. It will move into every experience, every word, every look, every smile, every cry, every tear, every pain, every joy--everything that it ever experienced upon this earth and every individual it passed upon this earth whether it was just someone passing on the sidewalk. This will be done not in pain, or not in guilt or not in shame but just be reviewing what the totality of life on earth was and to see what lessons were learned and what lessons which still have to be worked with, both as a spirit being and again when you are another human being.

AgreeThis place I have come to call the shower of healing is only a prelude for the rehabilitation of returning souls. The orientation stage which immediately follows (expecially with younger souls), involves a substation counseling session with one's guide. The newly refreshed soul arrives at this station to undergo a debriefing of the life just ended. Orientation is also designed as an intake interview to provide further emotional release and readjustment back into the spirit world.

Agree...after souls arive back into their soul groups, they are summoned to appear before a Council of Elders. While the Council is not prosecutorial, they do engage in direct examination of a soul's activities before returning them to their groups.

AgreeRegardless of the specific energy treatment received by the soul at the gateway to the spirit world, most all returning souls will continue on to some sort of healing station before finally joining their groups. Most recovery areas for the returning soul involve some kind of orientation back to the spirit world. This usually includes a preliminary debriefing of the life just completed. Much more in-depth counseling will take place later with guides in group conferences and with our Council of Elders.

AgreeAs souls we do not judge one another. The only judgement in the realm of spirit is the self-judgement that may arise during the life review. We judge ourselves, and we are the only ones who do so. Our spirit guides sit with us as we review our lives and occasionally point out moments at which we could have expressed greater compassion, but even these remarks are made in a loving, nonjudgemental way. Only when we are in body and seemingly separate from one another do we express a lack of compassion through judgement. Those judgments, far from being the results of perceived separation, are actually the cause of it. To release judgement and to love with indiscriminate compassion is to remember who we really are.

AgreeIt is commonly understood that man is composed of body, soul, and spirit. The physical body he is fairly conversant with, but what of the soul and spirit? Of these two man knows little indeed. What he does not realize is that he is a spirit, first, last, and always. The physical body is merely a vehicle for his spirit body upon his journey through his earthly life. The mind belongs to the spirit body. Every human experience, every thought, word, and deed, that go to make up the sum of earthly human experience is infallibly and ineradicably recorded upon what is called the subconscious mind through the agency of the physical brain, and when the time comes for man to leave the earth, he discards the physical body for ever, leaves it behind him upon the earth, and passes into the realms of the spirit world. His spirit body he will find is a counterpart of the earthly body he has just left behind him. He will then find that what he called the subconscious mind when he was incarnate has now assumed its rightful place in his new scheme of existence. And it is not long before it begins to show its particular attributes to its owner. By its principal ability of ineffaceable and infallible recording, this mind reveals itself as a complete and perfect chronicle of its owner's life upon earth. The revelations, therefore, that are attendant upon the person newly arrived in the spirit world can be sufficiently startling. (from channeled spirit of Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson)

Both Agreements and DisagreementsA spirit family group can decide that they wish to share a common environment which they would create, but generally each spirit reflects what it chooses to experience.

AgreeIn the spirit world, seeing a temple is not a literal record of stone blocks but rather a visualization of the meaning the temple has to that soul.

AgreeSince it is possible to create any reality in the spirit world, it is not unusual that some souls wish to spend their off periods in the houses where they lived on Earth....These souls may want to mentally construct an exact duplication of familiar settings around where they used to live,...and any structures which remind them of their old hometown. They only have to conjure up these places from memory and use directed energy beams for the images to appear.
