A very common question that my clients ask me is, “What happens to us after we die?” In response to that inquiry, I always reply that energy doesn’t begin or end! The energy of who we are continues after the body dies, with our personality remaining the same. So, for example, if your husband was loud in life, he’s still loud in death. If your friend was funny while she was alive, she’s still funny on the celestial plane.
I always use the example of water to explain this concept further. If we put a bowl of water in the middle of the room, it will eventually evaporate. The water is no longer limited to the bowl and is now free to go where it wants. It’s the same with us! When we leave our physical bodies, the energy of who we are continues, but it’s finally free of its vessel and totally unconfined.
A message that I often receive from deceased loved ones is, “With a thought, I’m there.” In other words, wherever they wish to go, they can get there with a simple thought!
After leaving their physical bodies, the souls are able to finally feel their connection with everything and everyone. Since they’re not limited to a physical body any longer, they truly are free—with no more pain or worries. They not only feel peace, they are peace and tranquility. They are limitless and finally able to fully experience their oneness with the source of this infinite peace.
Seeing through God’s eyes, these spirits are able to see the bigger perspective of what they did or didn’t do on Earth and how they have affected all those individuals in their paths. They have the ability to see why they took certain decisions and actions, and are able to understand more fully what they could have done better.
Our deceased loved ones can also use their thoughts to gently guide and protect us, and are in a place where they’re actually able to help us more than they ever could before. They can help us to achieve a goal, find lost items, experience peace, place the right people in our path, and so much more.
