    I've had paranormal experiences over the past 6 years starting after the passing of some family members. Some have been in the form of unexplained behavior of electronic devices such as orb and other phenomena on video with triggers at unusual times like on the hour to the millisecond, clocks with hands changing time inexpicably, electronic shades closing inexplicably, and one instance of a physical object moving which was partially recorded on video. There have been unexplained feelings of a presence and seeing unexplained phenomena a few times several years ago (which was unfortunately not recorded on video). The topic has been fascinating to research and sittings with mediums have been illuminating, but I haven't changed how I live my life much.

    What paranormal experiences have you folks had?

    Not only more respected but also more accepted which is often called Codependency. We are conditioned early on to depend on and want/need acceptance, approval, protection, help, nurturing, warmth, feeding and LOVE from significant others so it's no wonder that most of us give up our deepest knowings and desires to "please" significant others from day one. We are taught Denial from the very beginning and come to happily live with lying to ourselves just to keep the affections and "love" of powerful or significant others. Then, in our teens, we suddenly get the power and courage to stand up to the lies and pressures from these dishonest but significant others and begin REBELLING but most of us have no idea how to move from acceptable social lies to the truth, so we unwittingly trade one set of lies for another, more acceptable set of lies. Some are lucky enough to stay honest with themselves from day one but most of us have to live in Denial and repression while our inner truths are allowed to lay dormant or simply die an early death just to please our SOs who have allowed their dreams to lay dormant or die. Being born psychic and a natural fine artist was a horrible curse for my late wife due to the fear and jealousy in her family, but together, we made her dreams and gifts come alive and be exposed in her lifetime. I suspect that her paintings will someday be "discovered" and will have a dramatic impact on the world now that she is "gone".

    IMHO I've learned that it's not what we believe it's what we do. There are catholic popes and men and women of "god" that will have/had had pretty bad life reviews and will atone in future lives because of their acts. And there are atheists who did fine in their life review. If there is a Jesus/Mohammad/Abraham/Tara He/She willwelcome them. IMHO

    Many of our members already understand this - one's religion/persuasion is not what matters. Atheist or convinced-believer is less important than how someone led their life. It's how one conducts oneself that truly matters. What we don't know, though, is the outcome of so-called life reviews which are the business only of the individual involved.

    But some may experience quite a shock on their return to lives in-spirit and when they review what they had planned for themselves, and compare it with the outcome of their actions, they may feel considerable sadness and/or regret. And that will be the only judgment passed over their lives - their own judgment.

    As for atoning for actions or omissions it's down to that same individual to decide - with help and support as needed and/or asked for - what they wish to do about anything they want to make amends for. On their return to life discarnate each individual will be welcomed and support will be there even for those seen as the world's worst inhabitants.

    These are not my beliefs, thoughts or ideas. They are from teachers and guides generally accepted as being highly spiritually evolved.

    First the senses will pass away one by one. Sounds will become further and further away, so she will seem to be going deaf. Her sight will become more and more dim until she is as blind. If you are holding her hand, she will feel your touch less and less, until not at all. All five senses will subside as her consciousness withdraws within. With the outside world blocked, inner vision will arise, and she will watch the dance of the two spheres which signal the impending separation of spirit from form. At the end there will come a rushing and vertigo as spirit is expelled from the corpse through one of the gateways. She will find herself outside her body looking at it, probably yet connected to it by the silver thread, but that will soon shatter, at which time the portal will open which will suck her in....hopefully. Once past the threshold she will be flying fast through a tunnel. At the end a bright light. Once past the exit threshold, she will be enveloped by that light. Nearly all are shocked into unconsciousness by it. By the time she recovers, the terrible light will be gone, and she will be floating in a luminous void, and that is how it will be for quite awhile. Without the body it has become addicted to, the spirit will eventually undergo a paroxysm which marks the final end to the human world and the true beginning of existence in the Antarabhava (deathrealm). At this point the disembodied consciousness will begin to take on a sort of spirit body which will allow her to move about and interact with her 'environment'. Over a period of time, the Buddhists say 49 days (but it can actually be much shorter), she will experience various phantasmagoria...some dream-like and some nightmarish. At this point different 'roads' can be taken, depending on her karmic proclivities. Some things are always the same. There will be a blasting icy wind always at ones back, paranoid delusion of being pursued, loud scary noises, etc., impelling one towards rebirth. Most spirits are too obsessed with such illusions to watch where they are being driven towards, and end up taking the first rebirth that opens to them, just to escape what is not there. Some end up taking rebirth in a hell-world, or even worse the Pretaloka. A lucky few make it to godrealm or Asuraloka. The rest make it back to the human realm, but most do not get a favorable birth. If you want to know more of this, there are many books on it. Mostly Buddhist, and therefore tinged with their mindset, but mostly accurate.

    I think the actual reports from the afterlife by people who live there are a better source than Buddhist doctrine.

    Here's an example of what I mean:

    I study Buddhism but I recently read that the Tibetan Book of the Dead was translated by British Imperialists and they interpreted it from their Judeo/Christian viewpoint filled with the usual fire and brimstone.
    There are many wonderful Buddhist texts but I question the Book of the Dead's accuracy.
    In my case the love of my life has been here more than 120 days and our communication is becoming stronger every day. Just today I had a very powerful dream She sent me.
    Peace.

    All of this is mere religious beliefs. It has nothing to do with objective evidence! NONE OF THIS HAS ANYTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS AT DEATH.

    Amore, your mother will be young and healthy again in an atmosphere of perfect love. if you would like a free copy of The Fun of Dying, please just request it through the contact block on robertagrimes.com.

    And Kalchaya, THIS IS YOUR FIRST WARNING. AfterlifeForums is a religion-free zone, including with regard to Christianity and emphatically including with regard to Buddhism. You are free to say what Buddhists believe (so long as you don't overdo it), but be sure to emphasize that these are religious beliefs and you are not advancing them as facts. Do not post ANY religious teachings as fact here, ever again!

    That's one way to look at it, but it is only one view -- it may or may not be the way it actually is, or such passage may be different for each person. No one should assert that any particular way IS the way it is, for everyone. Not ANY particular way -- Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Spiritualism, etc.
