I just received a really great question from a reader and I thought I’d share it and the answer with all of you. :)
Hi Danielle..i would be ever so thankful if you could reply. first off…i just want to state that my mother and i are believers of the afterlife,spirits, and both of us seem to have a sixth.sense.. a powerful intuition..our.house is.being.revisited constantly by.residual spirits or loved ones who.have passed on. what i really am curious.about and would appreciate an answer to is…when.we pass away..dont we go to heaven or hell? If we were able to return to.earth wouldnt that be.sad and misleading. The spirits that are earthbound…are they being punished? What could be more horrible then to be an earthbound spirit..not accepting your own death and etc. lastly Danielle..are we going to be reunited with our loved ones and family members? It makes me so.sad to think of myself as a lonely earthbound.spirit …not knowing im earthbound or even knowing it…it.truly makes me nervous and i have to stop the tears from forming in my eyes. i know you may never see this..but if you do…please reply..id be very grateful if you answered. Thanx
Hi Jennifer, thanks for stopping by! This is a very complex topic but I’ll do my best to answer all your questions. :)
To answer your questions, I have to explain consciousness. So, as you probably already know, everything vibrates. Everything has a frequency, from the smallest atom to the biggest planet, everything but everything is vibrating. But not everything vibrates at the same frequency. Rocks, for instance, vibrate at a very low frequency compared to trees; and water vibrates slower than animals. Everything, believe it or not, has consciousness, but not self-awareness. Humans (and apparently dolphins and a few other mammals) vibrate fast enough to have achieved self-awareness, whereas rocks, trees, and birds are not self-aware. There are many, many beings that vibrate faster than ourselves, ie: angels, but we cannot see them because their vibration is too fast (think of the wings of a humming bird and how we can hardly see them the faster they fly).
Now, there are many different dimensions. Dimensions are also comprised of vibration. Humans live in the third dimension, trees and water in the second and rocks in the first, all based on their level of vibration and consciousness. We can see these lower levels because we are ‘above’ them, vibrationally speaking. We cannot ‘see’ the higher levels because we vibrate slower than them. Make sense? Psychic ability is the ability to raise one’s vibrations high enough to sense and see the higher dimensions, albeit briefly and is usually quite limited. Emotions have vibrations as well, hence why psychics can sense other people’s feelings, living or dead.
Earthbound ghosts live in the fourth dimension, what religion calls Heaven is usually the fifth dimension. God, or what I call The Source, is the sum of all vibration, the highest frequency. A splice of that consciousness exists within all things, everything. Every single thing that exists is a spark of that ‘higher power’. It is also important to remember that energy cannot be created nor destroyed–only altered. For energy to ‘grow’, it must learn to vibrate faster, and the only way to do that is through challenges and experiences, and birth and death.
Now, when someone dies violently or unexpectedly, they are locked into a lower vibration emotion, usually fear, hatred, etc. It seems odd that they’d wind up in a dimension higher than humans, but without their corporeal bodies, they are bound to a dimension between earth and ‘heaven’. Some realize they’re dead, some do not. It’s a very confusing state for them. Many need help from psychics to find their way to the next dimension. Usually the psychic helps by raising the vibrations of the spirit, hence helping them move upwards.
Now, as for being punished. Here’s a scenario for you: You buy a new puppy, he’s excited, happy and thrilled to explore his new world. You know, as his owner, that puppies are notorious for chewing things yet, one day, you give him your brand new shoes to play with. Then, he chews them up, wrecking them. Do you punish him? You gave him the shoes, knowing full well he’s likely going to wreck them. It’s the same with The Source. He’s given us bodies, given us life, placed us in a place of hardship and taken away our memories of ‘heaven’ so we can learn and grow, hence allowing The Source to grow. Would it make sense for The Source then to punish us for choosing the wrong path or having the wrong experiences? We humans like to think we are evolved and should know better, but in reality, we are just new puppies running around without a clue as to what our owner really wants. lol
Okay, now for the reuniting with loved ones. Yes, but in the case of earthbound spirits, it can take longer. Just because we die and leave our earthly body behind, does not mean we do not stop learning and experiencing. Becoming an earthbound spirit can be another hurdle we ‘have’ to overcome. It’s yet another part of the school of the universe.
Everything we learn here, we take with us. Good and bad. To raise your awareness is to raise your vibration, hence giving you the tools to move forward when you die, and not linger.
Feel free to ask me any questions about this, I know it was a long, heavy lecture. lol
