The Afterlife

Initial solitude and an opportunity for meeting important spirits (1) Agree: 7 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsThough you are in this wonderful large spirit family that you have returned to and you are initially greeted and reconnected with all of your spirit family, you are then given a time to more-or-less have solitude and a time to become more comfortable in your own spirit being again.

AgreeAfter those entities who meet us during our homecoming have dispersed, we are ready to be taken to a space of healing...I hear such terms as: chambers, travel berths, and interspace stopover zones, but the most commmon is "the place of healing." I think of the healing station as a field hospital, or MASH unit, for damaged souls coming off Earth's battlefields.

AgreeWhen people in trance speak of being part of a soul cluster group, they are talking about a small primary unit of entities who have direct and frequent contact, such as we would see in a human family. Peer members have a sensitivity to each other which is far beyond our conception on Earth...Members of the same cluster group are closely united for all eternity. These tightly-knit clusters are often composed of like-minded souls with common objectives which they continually work out with each other. Usually they choose lives together as relatives and close friends during their incarnations on Earth.

AgreeHomecoming is a joyous interlude, especially following a physical life where there might not have been much karmic contact with our intimate soulmates.

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.

AgreeThe integrity of a soul's original cluster group remains intact in a timeless way. Regardless of who is graduating, they never lose their bond to old companions. Primary cluster groups began their existence together and remain closely associated through hundreds of incarnations.

AgreeI found myself in company with two old friends, one of them my father. He came to be with me, to help and generally show me round. It was like nothing else so much as merely arriving in a foreign country and having a chum to go around with. That was the principal sensation. The scene from which we had so lately come (1) was already well relegated to the past. Having accepted the change of death, all the horror of our late experience had gone. It might have been fifty years ago instead of, perhaps, only last night. Consequently our pleasure in the new land was not marred by grief at being parted from earth friends. I will not say that none were unhappy, many were; but that was because they did not understand the nearness of the two worlds; they did not know what was possible, but to those who understood the possibilities, it was in a sense the feeling, "Let us enjoy a little of this new land before mailing our news home"; therefore there was little grief on our arrival.

Both Agreements and DisagreementsA spirit can request to meet with an individual in heaven with whom they have a strong heart connection and wish to express thankfulness and gratitude for that impact that individual has had on the spirit's past life. It is not necessary that that individual have had an earth acquaintance with the arriving spirit. Source

I do firmly believe that universal forces are at work that pull us inexorably toward the deserving results of our actions.
