Death is Not the End of Our Life Force Energy
Most people will experience some form of grief in their life, due to loss. It is helpful to remember that grieving is a process, not a permanent condition. Grief is the energetic and emotional withdrawal that occurs when the vibration and resonance of a person, who is no longer here, is removed from the Third Dimensional reality of another person. When the person departs, those who are close to them experience major energetic shifts, as a result of the permanent separation.
This process is a universal one, although in other cultures grief is sometimes approached differently. In some societies, after a person dies there is dancing, storytelling, and music. The night of partying is designed to drive away grief and, for that night at least, it works. However, for the most part, people tend to hold onto feelings, many times in an attempt to hold on to the person.
Once the process of dying begins, the energy of the person begins to transform. As Life Force Energy is transferred to its next destination, they become less alive in the Third Dimension. Some people leave suddenly and others take longer, but it is all by design. There are certain times when it is auspicious for a person to be born, and the same goes for dying.
The person’s subconscious and their Higher Self will create whatever circumstances are necessary to achieve this departure. How they leave can be likened to how some people enter the ocean to swim; some run and jump in, others wade in, gradually getting used to the water.
It is presumed that when a person dies that it is the physical condition that is responsible, but it is actually the reverse. The Life Force Energy of the person leaves the body first and then the body, which cannot continue without it expires. Long-Term illness is the result of the body reacting to the essence of the person, slowly leaving the physical form. Sudden death happens when the Life Force Energy leaves very quickly.
When one is ill and it is not time for them to go, Life Force Energy returns and the person recovers. If it is time to leave this incarnation, there is no physical recovery. Dying is similar to being born. Some births are easy and some very difficult.
While experiencing the grieving process, remember that the Universe is perfectly on time. This includes the moment a person is born and when they pass away. No one leaves before his or her time. Therefore, death should not be looked upon as something unnatural or untimely. Yes, of course, the person will be missed, but their leaving is not a Cosmic mistake. Agreements are made before a person incarnates and dying is part of that agreement. It does not help to make part of someone’s life a tragedy.
What truly matters is that the essence of any person does not die. Instead, incarnations are completed and the soul, Higher Self, spirit, or whatever you wish to call it, move on. This is not just an exercise in semantics, nothing really does die, because everything is made up of energy, which cannot be destroyed; only transformed and transmuted into something else.
Loved ones remain, not just in memories, but also in reality—just not the Third Dimensional reality. Therefore, it is time to take another view of the processes of life. Someday dying might even be a very unusual occurrence.
In modern cultures, many people are physically removed from extended families and communities in which births and deaths are experienced firsthand. Because of this, they are not accustomed to death as a part of the cycle of life. Death is not a tragedy, but an occasion to celebrate the life of a person and revere the process of the transition. They will be missed, sometimes terribly, but on the other hand, they can be remembered.
In other dimensions, they are still together with those who loved them. The Love that is shared with those that have gone is real, and that Love endures eternally. If a person’s death is truly the successful conclusion of a contract, which they agreed to before being born, then it can be viewed as a perfectly completed project. From that standpoint, everyone’s life, no matter how long or short, was as it should be.
How a Near Death Experience Enhanced My Consciousness
There’s no doubt that consciousness is rapidly expanding throughout the human race. My coffee cup is about to start talking to me. A lot of what was once considered ridiculously paranormal has now been empirically-proven and popularly embraced. In fact, the human race is clearly now a race between the realization of how expanded consciousness plays in the creation of our world and the destructive consequences that ignoring it has caused and continues to cause every day.
Consciousness as an Elemental Force
So what does that have to do with near-death experiences (NDEs)? Well, now it seems even science is converging on the ancient—but currently revolutionary—concept that consciousness itself may be an elemental force: a field, like gravity. It might be an eternal quantum field of being, necessary for the formation of material life – rather than the other way around (this idea is nicely, and controversially, proposed by Dr. Robert Lanza, of Wake Forest University). And what are NDEs but further testimonies of the continuation of consciousness beyond physical life?
Co-Creating our Reality
The rapidly growing Near-Death Movement, based on thousands of testimonies of people who have experienced consciousness beyond the limitations of our physical life, is yet another example of humanity’s spiritual potential. It’s additional evidence of our ability to co-create whatever reality we participate in, be it on the earth right here, or in that sweet hereafter.
I’d never given any of it much thought until the power and meaning of my own three NDEs arose and compelled me to write a book that put me into the hub of the hubbub. I’ve since discovered that the community of near-death experiencers ranges somewhere from five to fifteen percent of the general population globally. Now that’s a whole lot of non-ordinary reality!
Consciousness – and Individuals – Are Unique
Naturally, I have less reason than the average Joe to doubt the veracity of all that testimony; but I have found plenty of reason to ask this question: why is it that near-death experiences are all so different? If we’re all governed by eternal, invisible machinery, why do we see such a range of afterlife options, all tailored to the individual participant? Shouldn’t we all go down that identical tunnel into the light and meet Grandpa in the shimmering fields of Elysium?
Some near-death returnees report celestial extravaganzas. Some tell of organizations of elders and angels, structured in an elaborate cosmic framework. For others, it’s a hellish nightmare, complete with every infernal cliché. The reason for all these differences can be simply explained if we consider the way we’re always participating in the field of consciousness, how we are always creating our own individual realities.
The Continuum of Consciousness
My own NDEs were humble by comparison, but they all had one glorious factor in common; that I did not lose consciousness when I lost consciousness. In fact, all three times, I experienced an enhanced consciousness, seamlessly uninterrupted from this life to the next.
Skeptics suggest this sense of continuity is the result of a still-active mind – a mind not yet fully “dead.” And they’re right. Since consciousness is a field we eternally participate in, our minds never do die, they simply join a greater mind. The Hindu Vedas suggested that thousands of years ago. Dear old Dr. Jung described it too, way back in the 20th century. The mind continues working.
“Memory ensures that nature creates individual forms that are copies of the primal universal forms.”
And as for the differences, well, imagine someone dying, and awakening in this world. What would they experience? The war in Syria? A recital by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Perhaps a high-powered business lunch, or that visit to Grandpa’s? In this elemental context, we all imagine the life we are living and live it. We all enter into the life we need to experience. This is the mystery of any incarnation, and it will continue to be the mystery from this life to the next (although NDEs do generally suggest that things are better explained over there).
The Unharnessed Power of the Mind
And what if all bets were off when it comes to our greatest potential imaginable – the unharnessed power of mind? What if our imaginations were released from the obvious limitations of this physical form? Almost anything is possible here and now––how about a world where your imagination is set free to manifest reality without material limit?
In “the next world,” as in this one, our imagination is like the clay; consciousness is like the ever-spinning potter’s wheel, and the source of power is like, well, The Source of Power. Welcome to every life (and afterlife) you will ever live – and remember, whatever life you’re living, always look for the love!
