Coma and the afterlife

    What do you think happens in a coma, in relation to the afterlife? When one is in a coma, does one's consciousness return to the spirit world?

    No. You might conceivably travel in the astral, though. For the most part, those in coma seem just to slip out of their bodies and hang around. Sonia Rinaldi in Brazil has recorded some amazing communications with them!

    Interesting. Will look into it.
    Is it possible to have people in comas whose consciousness does not travel anywhere? Is that why some people may be in a comatose state for years and not remember an experience, or do they all get out of the body and just not remember?

    We don't know, but we suspect that these decisions - as with so many other decisions - are made by the person's eternal mind. But if I were pressed, I would say that based upon what little we know it all seems to be a lot like what happens when our bodies sleep and our minds leave them: we are busy outside the body, but we generally don't remember it at all when we wake up.

    We know little, if anything, about the way that the 'real me' - the spirit individual who undertakes an incarnation in a human body - interacts with its physical overcoat.

    We know little, if anything, about the way a spirit vacates its body during sleep to travel to the next world, the one whence it came. If it's the case - as claimed - that we all visit our spirit home during sleep we have no notion whether that's for a few seconds, for a few minutes or for hours. And we don't know if it happens every night or just some nights. So trying to establish the conditions under which the spirits of coma-victims - or persistent vegetative condition sufferers - leave their bodies (if at all or to any extent) seems like a guess, a shot in the dark.

    Some sensitives may indeed be able to communicate with some, such disembodied spirits but how reliably and with how much evidential information provided I'm not aware. We don't hear about this situation much so it's guesswork how many sensitives have the necessary awareness of the possibility of communicating in this way, the attributes needed to do it, or the willingness to try.

    Sonia Rinaldi is reported to have made many such contacts but whether she's the exception rather than the rule remains to be established.

    That is an area of discussion that baffles me a bit. If I am not the person in control, my consciousness, but another one (my eternal consciousness), doesn't that imply we will lose some part of ourselves when we reintegrate? Our will, volition, sense of self...? Perhaps all perspectives we get after the merger simply come from this hybrid self, within which our former selves are already lost?

    Why do you think we know so little about that area? If we sometimes get direct access to spirits through mediums, it doesn't seem like a tall order to request such information. Is there another reason why we wouldn't be able to know more about it? Is that something spirits like to leave vague?

    So many questions...... Why not run them by Sparrow?

    Sparrow seems to like word games and vagueness more than actual information.

    Then maybe it's time for basics but that's not something you've yet shown any inclination to learn.
