After-Death choices and the mechanics of transition
First, and if such a first exists, upon physical death, the past earth reality consciousness-ego-personality takes a “back seat,” so to speak, to the emerging inner ego personality, that is, the earth waking personalities dreaming personality, the inner being-self comes to the fore because it can deal with NOTHING physical, it can deal with the psychological state that the immediate survival personality finds itself within. It can comfort the perhaps scared, startled self who is groping around for answers.
The after-death state has no rule book, there is NO menu, there is no hierarchy, there is SELF and self-awareness. There is NO God, but you will encounter gods if you wish, for all such gods wear masks for convenience, and if it is devils you were taught to expect, then the devil mask is donned by the volunteer guides who assist in the transition from physical life to non-physical life. Here, the guides get you up and running, start here, after life 101. The education continues. The Seth of Jane put in his time as a volunteer “old guard” assistant in the mid-plane, the orientation stop off point for many newly dead.
Seth: “Instead of countries or physical divisions, you have psychological states. To an individual in one, another might seem quite foreign. In many communications with those in these transitional states, messages through mediums can appear as highly contradictory. The experience of the “dead” is not the same. The conditions and situations vary. An individual explaining his reality can only explain what he knows. Again, such material often offends the intellect that demands simple, neat answers and descriptions that tally.”
“Most individuals from these stages who communicate with “living” relatives, have not reached the time of choosing as yet, and have not completed their training.”
“They may still be perceiving reality in terms of their old beliefs. Almost all communications come from this level, particularly when there is a bond of relationship in an immediately previous life. Even at this level, however, such messages serve a purpose. The communicators can inform living relatives that existence continues and they can do it in terms that the living can understand.”
“They can relate to the living, since often their beliefs are still the same; in fortunate circumstances they can communicate their knowledge as they learn. Gradually, however, their own interests change. They take up relationships in their new existence.”
“At the time of choosing, therefore, the personality is already preparing itself to leave for another existence. In your terms of time this in between period can last for centuries. It can last only a few years. Again, however, there are exceptions. There are cases in which a personality goes very quickly into another physical life, in perhaps a matter of hours. This is usually unfortunate, and is caused by an obsessive desire to return to physical life.”
“Such a quick return, however, can also be taken by a personality who is charged with a great purpose, who disregards or discards an old physical body, and is reborn almost immediately into a new one in order to finish an important and necessary project already begun.”
