Could I reincarnate to have an actually enjoyable life the next go-around?
It's going to be your choice. You'll make a decision that will be right for you at the time you make it. And when you have more information and support/guidance with which to make the best choice to try to achieve what you decide would be right for you...

Hi David,
Mikey tells me he was in the area of America his lifetime before this. Has also been in the area of Germany. (Not sure what you mean by Christian names.)
Carol and Mikey "in Spirit"
(Honestly, I never ask him about my or his previous lives as I just want to get through this one! )
I think David asking about Christian names (first names - the word 'Christian is anyway a misnomer when you're not a Christian! :D) might have been wondering who Mikey was in previous lifetimes and what name(s) he was known by.

As an incidental but related point, spirit guide and teacher 'Silver Birch' (the pseudonym he was known by) would not say who he used to be or say much about his earlier incarnations.

It later emerged though that he had also been known as 'Big Jump' but I don't know if that meant he had lived as a North American tribes-person. He did, though, appear to prefer he wasn't known by that last name, perhaps because he felt it might be a distraction.

His message was always that his message mattered but not his name or who he used to be.

:D I hear you, Carol! :D

I find it fascinating what folk ask Mikey about. Some ask questions I consider basic 'afterlife' understanding. Others want to know just about themselves. Another individual may ask philosophical questions and I like to hear about the practical, everyday stuff. We are all fascinated in our own ways. On a personal level I happen to be less interested in philosophical issues because many have been addressed by teachers and guides already and even they can differ about certain points.

What no-one can challenge, however, are the experiences Mikey has 'over there' and they can give us invaluable insight into situations we might otherwise not understand. One illustration of this is the way Mikey still likes to snowboard on mountains, something that links to a question recently asked about the 'reality' of what's experienced 'over there'.

Although that relates to Mikey's experience since he last returned it has general importance because it links to what folk often wonder about - is what you experience when you're dead actually real?
I think you have this point very well put here mac.I often wander what it feels like in the afterlife as opposed to here,its hard to imagine it being more real than here, maybe its because it's all I know from where I currently am,I often imagine the afterlife as more of a kind of dream state.I would love it to be every bit as real as here in a nice wayDavid

thanks, David :)

I've heard folk speak about how this so-called afterlife is 'more real' than the dimension we're living in now. I don't buy it. What I suspect they mean is that our senses are heightened, our awareness greater, our feelings/sensations more intense and more pleasurable, surroundings more 'vivid' and 'sharp' etc. Perhaps kinda like HD television seemed when it first came out compared with the standard definition screens we had earlier. UHD and 4K are now even more intense, rich and vivid and that's kinda how I think the scenery and environment will feel to us - everything more intense. But not more real....

I understand how you explain the way you feel, though. The 'dreaminess' you picture is actually portrayed that way in the movie film 'Nosso Lar' also known as 'The Astral City'. Kinda hazy, misty and dream-like and that may be the creators' interpretation of Chico Xavier's explanation translated into a movie format.

If you haven't seen the movie take a look here:

Hi Carol & Mikey

There seems to be a lot more negative energy in the world these days . Is it possible that one day the Earth becomes so heavily entrenched with negativity, that it will no longer be a desirable place to learn and expand spiritually? Is there hope that all of this negativity will eventually go away and more positivity will emerge?

There MAY be a lot more negative energy but which benchmark do you use to assess that? Look back at wars in centuries past and also the recent, huge world wars and how much negative energy is involved in those. It's easy to find what you're looking for and miss what you're not, resulting in a skewed overall perspective.

As for the future well that's not set in stone so who knows what dreams may come? ;):D

My mother suffered from severe paranoid schizophrenia & hallucinated all day every day for probably 60 years experiencing constant auditory hallucinations. For much of her life my mother’s schizophrenia was undiagnosed & untreated & even after she was diagnosed treatment was ineffective. My father had the emotional development of a child and was incapable of supporting his wife or children in a normal way. Over the last 15 years of his life my father's emotional coldness grew worse & he became insane, was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia & died badly. As you would expect growing up in such a situation with no support or explanation of what was happening was 'challenging' for me.

My question for Mikey
is are such challenging situations intentionally chosen before coming here for the 'lessons' to be learned or are they a result of the randomness necessary for life here to have an element of spontaneity to it?

What a dreadful situation for both your parents. Mikey will speak for himself but in the meantime my thoughts are that similar questions can't be answered definitively but it's often been said that such lives are indeed chosen as part of the pre-incarnation planning.

Quite whether all three of you chose to experience what you did also can't be answered definitively but based on previous conversations I'm expecting Mikey will say you likely did.

Crap, well then that definitely explains the high number of Earthbounds
That's strange because two out of body travelers (Cyrus Kirkpatrick and Jurgen Ziewe) have spent countless hours in the astral realms, and both say just the opposite - in other words, some places are so much like earth that it's not easy to tell the difference, and that most earthly desires can be experienced there.

maybe they're phony...

That sounds as if they are saying the astral realms they are exploring are on a low level and close to the earth plane.

Questions for Carol.
1. How religious were you?
2. Have you read christian or mystical literature before, and if so, which one?
3. Christianity also speaks of the afterlife, why did it not comfort you in those days?


Reading my questions, I understand why I am not invited to parties and catechism courses :(

Voxman I am referring you to 'Our Rules and Policies' which includes this section:

"Religion and Politics
No conversations mentioning specific religions, faiths or beliefs etc. are allowed. "

The questions you've asked (quoted above) are getting close to infringing this rule as would any conversation concerning cathechism.

Beyond that, however, my personal response is that spirits love an enquiring mind and questions concerning afterlife and related spiritual issues will be treated in a similar way here. Please note that many such subjects have already been discussed on ALF. ;) I'm sure you will have seen this since you became a member. :)

I am not going to preach or challenge anyone's beliefs. My questions are a reaction to what Carol has already said in this thread. I tried not to mention the denomination.

A translator doesn't always handle with my sense of humor. And with meaning too.

People have been asking these questions in different ways since time immemorial, but I tried to give them unusual shapes. Did not work out. But the attempt, I hope, counted.

But you did refer to Christianity......

Your questions were hardly a subject for humour....

Your other questions are fine and my earlier remarks weren't to do with their meaning or shapes. Mikey will reply in due course. :)

I will ask you a question in private messages, if you do not mind. Because questions about the rules are off-top in this thread.

Why not ask your question in the 'Off Topic' forum where the answer can be seen by all members?
 

mac

Because these question affect this particular situation and continue the same conversation.
It would have been better to have done what I asked but you've chosen not to and that's your right. As for the last few postings, I will shortly be re-locating them anyway as I'm now trying to keep the C&M Q&A thread just for questions to Mikey, his answers and 'thank you' responses. Conversations that then develop in this thread - but don't involve Mikey directly - will be moved to other threads.

A new decade, a new thread. I cannot pass up the rare opportunity to say First. This thread will be read decades and maybe even a century from now (if it's made into book form) so I'll sign here as a participant.

It's a nice sentiment that this thread will be read in the distant future but the reality may be very different if the thread even exists at all. And as I've already indicated I'm re-locating 'off-topic' postings to leave the C&M thread mostly for member questions, Mikey's answers and thanks.

Im in just to declare that I was one of the final posters.

Also a question for Mickey

Does the afterlife ever get.. boring?

Well actually, Kurt, you're now one of the first in the new thread.... ;):D

But it's Mikey Morgan and not Mickey. On that point maybe you're mixing his name up with Micky, the spirit guide of famous trance medium Leslie Flint: The Voice Box

Exactly mac,I mean I think there is probably more good spirits than bad,at least with the people I've lost are all good,so why dont they just do what mikey says,if it's that easy and I'm lead to believe most of our beloved who have passed on are all around us, why when u ask say for them to flash a light for example why dont they do just do it?
