When your physical body is dying, I know that you may be in physical pain. In addition, you may feel scared, angry, lonely, resentful, and a host of other primal emotions.
However, have you also thought about what happens when your spirit passes on? Do you know the good news that can allay much of your fear and even help ease some of your discomfort?
(NOTE: I will not use the terms ‘departed, deceased, or dead’ since those have such strongly entrenched – and, according to much contemporary evidence – erroneous meanings about the end of life. Instead, I will use more accurate terms: changed worlds, passed on, physical or bodily death / die, orcrossed over. Other more factual descriptors for what happens after physical death include: transitioned / moved to the next phase of forever, reentered the field of all possibilities, dropped the body, andgraduated from earth-school.)
While you are going through the ups and downs of physically dying, I invite you to also focus on the following . . .
- You now can release fear and worry about death. Much clinical, scientific, and empirical evidence strongly indicates that no one really dies. Gary Schwartz, PhD, director of the Laboratory for Advancements in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona, has 99.9% certainly that consciousness / spirit continues after physical death. The completion of his SoulPhone spirit communication devices will provide 100% scientific proof for the first time in recorded human history. That evidence may be available as soon as 2018.This contemporary evidence provides solid reasons to release worry and fear about dying. Death is really an optical illusion, a result of your limited human senses. At the time of bodily death, it appearsthat your existence ends. But only your physical body, your outer shell dies. And that is much less than 1% of the totality of who and what you are.Relax and enjoy every aspect of life—even dying. To learn more about this evidence, visit SoulProof.comandGreaterRealityLiving.com.
Dying is totally safe. Death is practically a nonevent. After you change worlds, one of your reactions will be, “That’s all there is to it?” You probably have been through such changes many times so what’s the big deal? For those with a solid spiritual and scientific foundation about the afterlife, passing on will be much like walking through a door from one room to another. For atheists, there will be a big and very pleasant surprise as they discover life goes on.Dying is totally safe. It’s just another stage in life – like infancy, adolescence, youth, middle age, old age — and then the cycle continues.I and eleven great minds about consciousness topics – Raymond Moody, Caroline Myss, Anita Moorjani, Gary Schwartz, and others – discuss contemporary understandings about this and other big questions about life in The Eleven Questions.
You are in for a grand adventure. People who have clinically died and come back to tell about it say: ‘Recall your best days on Earth: your happiest, healthiest, and most energetic. Now multiple that by a million. That gives you a sense of how great it feels to drop the body and all the restrictions that accompany an earthly incarnation.
Get ready for a return to forever, a journey back Home. Or, more accurately, a remembering that you are always one with the One and an integral part of All That Is. You know how it’s exciting to prepare and pack for a trip to a favorite location? You’re now preparing to return to the Light, the really real place, the love and high energy that you are. So get ready for a marvelous trip.
- Physical death is an important part of life. You may wish that you could live forever in your current body. But that would require freezing time so no one aged and things stayed the same. It would soon become a stagnant sameness devoid of change and growth. Most people work best with a deadline so periodic shifts such as physical death also serve that purpose.
Bodily death is like a reset button, a new start, a fresh beginning in never-ending but periodically changing eternity. The real you is immortal, but your physical body is mortal. It’s a great setup.
- It’s your decision when and how to transition. Loved ones may or may not be ready for you to pass on, but that’s your call.Just tell them and your doctors when you are ready. End-of-this-life medical care is a huge money-maker thanks to the three trillion dollar per yeardisease-care industry in the U.S. You don’t have to undergo a “walletectomy” before you die.
You are the boss about how and when you move on to greener pastures. Options for euthanasia—a good death—are improving as well they should. Pets don’t have to suffer with intractable pain, incapacity, and terminal disease, but humans do? Who made that one up?
To get more clarity about how to spend your remaining time on earth, use the Ask Your Soultechnique. Under deep relaxation, you can get in touch with your inner wisdom / timeless self and best consider how you want to live and die.
- Complete “unfinished business.” You’ve probably heard the saying, “You can’t take it with you.” One exception is your consciousness. (Others aspects that appear to persist include your love, memories, acquired talents and knowledge, and personality.) Don’t carry your dirty laundry with you into the next realm. Wrap up financial, legal, and personal loose ends in your life.
Doing so removes resistances to passing on in a timely way. It also gives you peace of mind that you’ve finished what you came here to do. Take some time to review your life and honor what an amazing experience it’s been. Just think of all the activities, memories, and lessons you’ve had. It’s very likely been well-worth the price of admission.
You can more deeply examine this topic by using the Life Review Technique. This session is done under deep relaxation and allows you to have a life review before you pass on. After replaying your life, you can best make amends, heart-felt communications and other healing acts before you cross over.
- Throw a “See You Later” party. Western cultures sometimes turn funerals into somber affairs with black clothes and droning organ music. However, many in the west and other parts of the world celebratewhen loved ones complete their earthly lessons. This is very similar to celebrations when loved ones graduate from high school and college.When physical death is near, throw a party and invite your loved ones. Share the information in this article with them so they can release needless fears and excessive sadness. Laugh, cry, and speak from the heart. It’s your party so create it how you want. It will be a grand day and a proper launching into the next page of life’s never-ending saga.
- Do what you love as long as you can.Walt Disney and Albert Einstein worked on projects up until their time of passing. You don’t have to cease your lifework or favorite hobbies just because your body is physically ending.
Who knows – you might create some of your best workjust before transitioning from this world. What a curtain call that would be! Your missions aren’t over until you drop your body so, if you’re still reading this, you still have purposes to fulfill.
- Design your funeral and interment.You will soon have an opportunity to share your beliefs – and the collective evidence that life is eternal – with others. Create your funeral in a unique way. Play a video of yourself sharing your most important thoughts and feelings. Play your favorite songs and tell the back story about why you love them so much. Quote meaningful poems or sayings and why they are important to you.
Design how you want your bodily remains to be interred. Do you want your outworn shell to be buried in a box underground? Or do you want to spread your ashes under or around a tree to provide nourishment and minerals? How about a coral reef memorial that helps restore ocean life? It’s your choice. You are a unique being and no one will ever be just like you. So do it your way while on earth and after you’ve discarded your no-longer-needed physical shell.
- Check in afterwards. Over 75 million Americans have experienced an after-death communication (ADC) in which departed loved ones made their presence known. Discuss this with your loved ones beforeyou change worlds and set up ways of letting them know you are still alive and well. Set an intention to visit your dear ones while they are awake and dreaming.
Tell them about article #9 Twelve Ways to Visit with Your ‘Departed’ Loved Ones Nowand the Facilitated After-Death Contactsession. Those will increase the chances that your loved ones will perceive your continued presence.
Your ADCs will deepen their knowledge that death is just a new beginning, not an end. As more and more people drop their fear and ignorance about death, humanity can further evolve toward peace, love, and understanding.
