I recently watched a documentary on Amazon Prime called “Life to Afterlife: I died, Now What?”
If you don’t believe in the basic premise of consciousness, and soul – this will seem like a bunch of hooey (that’s a technical term). If you do, I think you’ll find it enlightening.
One thing I took away from the film was the comment made by several of the mediums interviewed: after we return to Spirit – or go beyond the veil – we create the experiences and world that we want by simply thinking.
A reference was made by one medium that here (on the earth) we have that same ability, but it is much harder because of the density of this physical plane.
While I’ve had numerous spiritual experiences since childhood that convince me that there’s much more to life than this short walk of ~100 years on this planet; I have no unique insights into the afterlife. I have studied spirituality from multiple perspectives and sources and believe these teachers have credibility. The consistent threads that exist in reports such as these across time and cultures tell me that Truth exists in their stories.
The issue of “density“
When we meditate, pray or do prayer therapy/spiritual mind treatment; things often work out a bit differently than expected. Things don’t manifest, as I have quoted in earlier blogs, like a Vending Machine (prayer in, push button, miracle pops out).
The timelines we experience between putting our attention on something that we desire, and having it show up in our lives are often protracted beyond what we would hope or want and sometimes look a little different than we had initially imagined. This behaves very much like something (thoughts, intentions, prayers and the miracles that follow) moving slowly through a dense energy field – and is the opposite of what has been described on the other side of the veil by these (and other) teachers.
The lesson for us is that we should be patient with this dense world. The things we choose to invest our attention, energy and time will indeed come to fruition. We must remain OPEN to receiving in any way they show up, and not lose faith that we have been heard. We have been heard and things are in motion.
Another point made in the film was that our loved ones on the other side do assist us. They’re not sitting around waiting on us hand and foot – that would hamper our own spiritual evolution; but they do intercede when we are in need. The descriptions provided sounded very much like the work often ascribed to angels and I suspect that there is some crossover there that is beyond the scope of this blog (at least for now).
I’ve shared multiple demonstrations/miracles experienced in my life, and in the life of family and friends. At times, they came in pretty much as expected while at other times, the miracles showed up looking much different; but in every case we were grateful and blessed. These include an unexpected pension, a new roof and more.
The challenge for seekers in manifesting miracles, or the things we desire in life, is that it’s a full-time job – or better yet, a way of life. The “density” of this physical plane requires more energy and attention than a wiggle of our nose or a blink of our eyes/nod of our head.
St Paul wrote in the letter to the Thessalonians:
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances;1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
This counsel provides a key insight to the miracles we seek while walking in this physical world. Time spent in prayer, meditation, grateful contemplation and joyful service to others will bear fruit, if we are willing to do the work. So, as Nike would say, #JustDoIt!
