I’ve discussed in many blog entries what happens when you die, how you cross over, have your life review, and are greeted by family and other loved ones. But then what? What happens next? After you transition to your new (after)life, what do you do all day? Sit around on clouds? Watch loved ones watch television? Play with cute little cherubs? Is it boring or exciting? Are there virgins? Do you get to play make believe in your own little universe? Is it like in that movie, Defending Your Life, where you get to eat pasta all day and never get fat? Do you get to roam the universe? Is there even sex?!
You hear a lot about near death experiences from the people who have experienced them, but you never get to hear what happens after you’ve been “processed” and are completely disconnected from your body because obviously they don’t come back and tell us. The only way to find out would be through psychic mediums who ask dead people what they do all day. Even then, we’d have no proof, no way of checking if the information we’re receiving is accurate. We’d have no way of validating the information that came through. It’s easy to validate information from a person’s life, but how can you get confirmation of what happens when no one living is around to see it?
When I speak to deceased people during readings I do get a glimpse into what’s happening on the other side, but admittedly the view is extremely limited. I’ll share what I know, but this must only be the tip of the iceberg.
When I do a reading, I usually get who the person is in relation to my sitter, then they show or tell me how they died, then they start sharing information about their life to validate that it is really them and not something I’m making up. They share love, warnings if necessary, and that’s usually it. However, upon occasion I’ve gotten a little more information that goes beyond the usual.
In one reading, a father came through for his daughter and his signal was very strong to me. His energy was that of a highly aware, highly conscious person. I was impressed with him and his connection strength. When the reading was over, I actually hung on to the guy a little longer to converse with him myself because the connection was so strong and I wanted to talk to him. He indicated that he was attending what we would call lectures on the other side. And that he spent his day discussing philosophy with other souls on the other side. He indicated that it was wonderful, stimulating, and he was surprised to find it available. I got a sense that he was definitely continuing his growth and wasn’t just sitting around like a blob of energy floating through the ether.
In another reading, I was connected with an individual who had died at a pretty old age, I think he was in his 90′s. He indicated to me that he was still very much tuned in to the lives of the family members he’d left behind. He showed me an image of himself sitting in front of what looked like a television and watching his various family members on different channels. Now he wasn’t really sitting in front of a television, it was a metaphor to explain to me what he was doing. But yeah, he indicated he spent his days still very tuned in to his family.
I’ve also tuned in to dead people who can’t let go of their past incarnation and are going over and over it, replaying it with different outcomes. Often these are people who have committed suicide or been murdered and their killer has not been brought to justice yet.
I also know that there are spirits who are in charge of making certain things work, like helping people cross over, helping creative people get inspiration, and helping souls choose where to incarnate next. I’ve seen conclaves of what I would call ascended masters working on creating change on our planet using their energetic influence and intelligence.
I know that you can hang around with other souls you used to know. I’ve seen families on the other side “having dinner” together. And I know you can engage in an energy merge that blows incarnated sex right out of the water!
And that’s about all I’ve seen. Admittedly, it’s not that much. Like I said, I am sure there is a lot more going on up there than I can see. Maybe I’ll start looking into this more consciously. Next time I get someone “on the line” who’s hanging out in the ether I’ll ask them what they do all day. I’m sure they don’t even have “days” like we have. And I’m sure time is irrelevant there. Being dead is just another state of being.
Maybe we’re not supposed to know too much about the afterlife so we can concentrate on living this one. For now, it’s enough for me to know that I have guides and angels looking out for my best interests, and I get to chat with the occasional deceased person which is always fun and interesting for me. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.
