The Afterlife

Individuality Agree: 8 divider Disagree: 1 divider Open Issues Exist


Both Agreements and DisagreementsThere finally becomes a time in spirit's evolution that you lose a sense of individuality. This is not as you on earth would consider it to be a negative experience but one where you are moving and vibrating at such high levels of energy that you know that you are vibrating as the oneness with the creator and all universal beings.

AgreeThere is no such simple end to the life that you know, [such] as the story of heaven. There is the freedom to understand your own reality, to develop your abilities further, and to feel more deeply the nature of your own existence as a part of All That Is.

AgreeQuestion to Channeled [Valerie's] Higher Self: You mentioned earlier that a physical incarnation provides a way to learn that cannot be accomplished otherwise. As I understand it, there are many beings who choose never to incarnate. If incarnation is the only way to learn certain things, why do some beings choose not to have physical lifetimes? Ans: The human experience does not encompass every experience that is important for a being's growth. There are no words to explain some of the concepts that can be learned when a soul never incarnates on Earth or in a human personality.

AgreeWe are sources of that energy from which you come. We are creators, yet we have also been created. We seeded your universe as you seed other realities. We do not exist in your historical terms, nor have we known physical existence. Our joy created the exaltation from which your world comes. Our existence is such that communication must be made by others to you. Verbal symbols have no meaning for us. Our experience is not translatable. We hope our intent is. In the vast infinite scope of consciousness, all is possible. There is meaning in each thought. We perceive your thoughts as lights. They form patterns. Because of the difficulties of communication, it is nearly impossible for us to explain our reality. Know only that we exist. We send immeasurable vitality to you, and support all of those structures of consciousness with which you are familiar. You are never alone. We have always sent emmissaries to you who understand your needs. Thought you do not know us, we cherish you. Seth is a point in my reference, in our reference. He is an ancient portion of us. We are separate but united. Always the spirit forms the flesh.

AgreeThose who choose to leave this system, whose reincarnational cycles are finished, have many more decisions to make.

Agree...because we now have a mass of evidence from interlife regression subjects that once we have reached the transcendent stage of sufficient enlightenment and balance that we no longer have to incarnate on earth, and are therefore free to continue our progress in the ethereal realms, there are still a whole range of assignments that require our attention. More advanced souls are continually involved in helping new souls to develop, in assisting other souls with their life reviews and plans, and with other more universal activities such as exploring a multitude of other planets throughout the universe, and assisting and monitoring the evolution of life on them. In fact, there will undoubtedly be a huge range of ethereal activities of which even the most advanced of our pioneers' regression subjects remain completely unaware.

AgreeThere is a new possibility that arises from the idea that all souls are holographic aspects of the Source itself, which is that the experience of individual souls might be automatically and continuously recycled back into the Source withou there being any need for them to 'reunite' with it in any formal sense....the rider on this is that is seems most souls would actively want to pursue all avenues laid out in their 'soul plan'. That is, not only the various aspects of general emotional experience common to all souls who reincarnate on earth, but also the particular specialisms that can be developed in various realms that each soul seems to have a specific purpose from the moment of its creation.

AgreeQuestion 83. Do spirits ever die?...What we're asking is whether the spirit's individuality has an end. Answer: ....At present, all we can do is to reiterate that the existence of spirits has no end.

AgreeQuestion 170. What happens to a spirit after its last incarnation? Answer: It enters into the state of perfect happiness as purified spirit.

AgreeYou are not fated to dissolve into All That Is. The aspects of your personality as you presently understand them will be retained. All That Is is the creator of individuality, not the means of its destruction. My own 'previous' personalities are not dissolved into me any more than your 'past' personalities. All are living and vital. All go their own way. Your 'future' personalities are as real as your past ones. After a while, this will no longer concern you. Out of the reincarnational framework, there is no death as you think of it. My own frame of reference, however, is no longer focused on my reincarnational existences. I have turned my attention in other directions.
