Transformation from Human to Spirit

Appearance in Heaven Agree: 8 divider Disagree: 0

48

Both Agreements and DisagreementsInitially, after an individual dies and makes its transition, its spirit can choose its appearance which will often be similar to that experienced during the prime of their life. Alternatively, those who have evolved so quickly in this lifetime spiritually will simply evolve into a form of light or angelic form and not find it necessary to go into any past physical form.

AgreeSouls often use their capacity to project former life forms when communicating with each other.

AgreeFamiliar beings are clustered together in undulating masses of bright light.

AgreeI tend to think of souls as intelligent light forms of energy. Right after death, souls suddenly feel different because they are no longer encumbered by a temporary host body with a brain and central nervous system. Some take longer than others.

AgreeAfter physical death our spirit continues to carry all the fond memories of earthly life...it is natural souls would want to maintain these planetary memories by re-creating their former bodies in the spirit world.

AgreeMost individuals after death choose a more mature image that usually corresponds to the peak physical abilities, regardless of the age when the physical peak was reached. Others choose instead to take the form they had at the particular point when the greatest mental or emotional heights were achieved, regardless of the beauty or age that characterized the form.

AgreeNow the new body is, of course, not a new one at all, but simply, a body not physical in your terms, one that you use in astral projections, one that give the vitality and strength to the physical body that you know...You flesh is embedded in it now. When you leave the physical body, the other body is quite real to you and seems as physical, although it has many more freedoms...

AgreeYour consciousness leaves the physical organism in various ways, according to the conditions. In some cases the organism itself is still able to function to some degree, although without the leadership or organization that existed previously. The simple consciousness of atoms, cells, and organs continues to exist, after the main consciousness has left, for some time.

AgreeHowever, after leaving the physical body, you will immediately find yourself in another. This is the same kind of form in which you travel in out-of-body projections...This form will seem physical. It will not be seen by those still in the physical body, however, generally speaking. It can do anything that you do now in your dreams. Therefore it flies, goes through solid objects, and is moved directly by your will, taking you, say, from one location to another as you may think of these locations...However, you cannot as a rule manipulate physical objects. You cannot pick up a lamp or throw a dish. This body is yours instantly, but it is not the only form that you will have. For that matter, this image is not a new one. It is interwound with your physical body now, but you do not perceive it. Following death, it will be the only body you are aware of for some time. For a certain period of time, therefore you can manipulate this form so that it takes any appearance that it had when it was connected with your physical form in the immediately previous physical life. You may die at eighty and after death think of the youth and vitality that you had at twenty, and find then that your form changes to correspond with this inner image.
