What’s On The Other Side?

Rays Of Wisdom - Comfort For The Bereaved - What's On The Other Side?

 My inner guidance tells me that each time we leave our physical bodies behind, our spirit and soul moves into a different dimension of life that is known as the world of light. This is humankind’s true home from which we emerge at the beginning of every new lifetime and disappear into at the end of it. The spirit world is an integral part of our world. It’s just that something like a veil separates our two worlds and that creates an illusion of separateness, although on the inner level of life all is one and there is no separation between anything.

In spite of knowing these things, I still have only a vague idea of what lies on the other side of the veil and what to expect behind the gateway that leads us out of our earthly existence home into our true reality as spirit and soul. I trust our spirit guides when they tell us that their world is in many ways similar to ours and that it is more beautiful. It is also more peaceful due to the fact that everybody is aware of their true nature and behaves accordingly. No longer being enclosed by a physical body, it stands to reason that the spirit world offers us much more freedom for moving about and if we so wish, we can visit the halls of learning and study any subject that interests us.

The Angel of Death is a group of Angels and when our time for departure has come, one of them calls to take our spirit and soul home. These Angels have nothing in common with the frightening images of the grim reaper from days gone by. The countenance of these Angels is one of kindness and compassion; their whole being radiates nothing but love. They help us let go of the outer shell of our physical body. In earthly life it acts like a kind of overcoat that protects the more sensitive bodies underneath.

Taking us by the hand of our astral body, the Angel wraps us in golden light and transports us into the world of light. After an initial period of healing there, the loved ones who went before us come to welcome us to their world, which soon will be yours and mine, too. In this world everybody is aware of their true nature as children of God and that we contain the same dualities. Just like God and the Angels we are androgynous, male and female are one single unit and both parts are of equal value. Because of this the spirit world knows no gender rivalries.

Each time we enter into the spirit world we leave behind our earthly personality with its multitude of airs and graces, foibles and shortcomings, ranks and degrees. This personality is picked up and continued each time we enter into another lifetime. The memories of all experiences of our past ones and the learning we were able to gain from them are stored in our soul. Our strengths and weaknesses, the thinking and behaviour patterns we have developed thus far, as well as our karmic debts accompany us.

From the first breath we take in each new lifetime they are affecting us from the subconscious level of our being. But for the wise higher reason of protecting us against ourselves, for a long time they have to remain hidden from the view of our earthly self. If during the early stages of our earthly education we knew what we sometimes got up to in previous lifetimes, we would be unable to live with ourselves. With this wise arrangement, however, our soul memories are ready and available to us straight away to help or hinder our pathway, as the case may be.

And because the law of life is love and evolution, each new earthly sojourn offers many opportunities for becoming a better person and making progress on the evolutionary spiral. We are granted the gift of each new lifetime to transform our weaknesses into strengths, to make good where we once sinned and in this way redeem some of our karmic debts.

As soon as we are back in the spirit world, everybody is the same and the only thing that counts is what we now are and not what we have or have been. Everybody has but one possession and that is their spirit and soul. The only difference between any two of them is that some are more highly evolved than others. No-one judges us *. Stripped of everything, we stand before ourselves and, with the help of the wise ones in charge of us and the Akashic Records *, we assess our performances during all earthly lifetimes thus far.

Each time we wish to connect with someone on the Earth plane, again the same as the Angels and our spirit guides and helpers, we can take on the appearance of either a man or a woman that represents the role we once played in earthly lifetimes. We can choose whatever allows people on the material plane to recognise us and helps them to trust the truth of any messages we wish to convey. This is also the case when we first arrive in the spirit world and our family and friends come to greet and welcome us. To assist us with feeling at home and settling down, for as long as necessary they once more play the part they once had in our life. Because we are familiar with this world from numerous previous occasions, this does usually not take very long.

To my mind, humankind’s most urgent need is letting go of our hold on the material world, its values and concerns. True and lasting security can only be found by any of us in the awareness that God is as much part of us as we are of God. The more we bring forth the highest and noblest characteristics of our Divine nature and express them in the world around us, the more easily the wings of the Great White Eagle can lift us above the sadness and heaviness of earthly life into the realities of our true home and nature, the spirit realm. The eagle in all its manifestations is a symbol that represents the human spirit’s power to reach beyond and free itself from its bondage with the physical world.

The efforts of wise ones who spend every day and moment that is left of their present earthly lifetime in this way are supported by a steadily increasing inflow of the Divine love and fire energies. In this way, with the passing of time, their lives are filling ever more with peace and harmony, as well as mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing, not only to them but also to everything they come into contact with.

Without wishing away what is left of my present earthly lifetime, I am looking forward to no longer hauling a physical body around with me. And knowing that the Angels brought me safely into every one of my earthly lifetimes and took me out of them again, and that not only once but many times, is a great comfort to me. Because it cannot have been any other way, I trust them to be with me, to guide and protect me against all unwanted influences, the way they have always done, wherever my evolutionary pathway may still require me to go.
