When you are between lifetimes (the Inter-Life), there are
many events in the inner worlds that you can choose to experience.
These include some events that are known but widely misunderstood
and some that are well known. Here is what karma teaches about them:
"Watch your character, for it becomes your
Before your guides will ever visit you "in
person", they will try first to get their message across through
traditional karmic counseling. Here the focus is on the message that
is communicated (and not the messenger guide who remains unseen).
When an individual is seriously off course in
their Life Contract, their guides can decide to take the radical step of
arranging a "necessary mid-life course correction". Many times, this
starts out slowly with a series of dreams where the same message is
delivered repeatedly. Either the person will be told to stop doing
something that is inconsistent with their Life Contract or to start
taking immediate action towards achieving its objectives.
Vivid dreams stand out because, unlike most
dreams, these are ones which wake us up and stick in deep our memory.
Vivid dreams show us the tragedy that will happen if we do not stop
what we should not be doing. They can also show us the triumph that
will ensue if we start doing what we came here to do. Even if we
cannot remember the details of the dream, the intense emotions will
stay with us, hopefully motivating us to take positive actions on
our Life Contract.
Lucid dreams are those where we actually asleep
but feel like we are awake. When we have a lucid dream, we can
experience a conversation with our guides, with our Higher Self, or
with a prominent figure from the religion we follow (like Jesus, Moses,
Buddha, or Confucius). Our guides will tell us - point blank - what
has to change in our lives in the future. Although we will not
remember all they say to us, we will get the gist of their message
in a very powerful way.
While we are falling asleep or waking up
(hypnagogic state), we can receive images or words outlining our guide's
messages to us. Although we cannot see our guides, we are in the most
receptive state to getting their message. We will remember it with the
highest degree of clarity and accuracy.
Near Death Experience (NDE):
An NDE is a "last resort" karmic counseling
to get a person's life "back on the track" of their Life Contract.
The NDE propels the individual in full consciousness into the inner
worlds to review the "progress of their life to date". This is an
intensive "karmic counseling" session with their guides during the
span of the NDE after which they must decide whether or not to return
to their body. If they do choose to return, they must "mend their
"In war, when a commander becomes so bereft of
reason and perspective that he fails to understand the dependence of
arms on Divine Guidance, he no longer deserves victory." (Lucius
* Light Body: Your guides can choose to make themselves visible
to you: if they do, be sure to pay close attention to them.
The vast majority of the time your guides - who
are always with you - are not allowed to make their presence known to you.
They are supposed to remain in the background and guide you gently with
flashes of inspiration, insight, and wisdom. They must first try to
reach you by karmic counseling. When this fails and they choose to
appear to you, there is a good reason for their rare visit.
Usually visitations happen in the middle of the
night when you are alone. Often, you will be woken from a sound sleep.
Your guide may appear in their light-body or you will feel their presence.
Most of the time, you will hear them speaking to you. You will engage
in a long conversation with them during their visit.
Visitations are extremely rare. Before they
happen, your guides will have exhausted every other means of communicating
with you. They will also carefully plan exactly what they want to say
to you. Each word and each item of information they will communicate
to you were literally months in the planning.
Visitations are meant to change your life.
They are meant to change the way you think about yourself and the path
your life will follow. Often your guides will try to get you to follow
a vision of the future that you have not thought of and/or not believed
to be possible… to help you achieve your destiny.
When George Washington encamped near Bowman's
Hill (pictured) by the Delaware River, he was seriously considering
giving up. His troops were starving and freezing. They were outnumbered
and outgunned. They were up against professional soldiers with state of
the arm firearms. A victory seemed impossible and the great general felt
hopeless. Then one night his guide appeared and showed Washington how he
could win by crossing the river and then launching a surprise attack.
Washington was also shown the great future of the United States of America.
That visitation filled him with hope and the rest is history.
"Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream." (Folk Song)
When people die but they are not always ready to
leave their life, they get a "Dream After Dying" to help them gently
detach from their last life. This also helps to prepare them for their
"Dream After Dying":
When people die suddenly or traumatically,
leaving a life that they were particularly attached to, they have a
harder than usual time letting go. Perhaps they were very young or
had close loving relationships or had "so much to live for", etc. For
whatever reason, they must be weaned from these deep attachments to
that life… but it must be done carefully... in a "Dream After Dying".
In the "Dream After Dying", the dead person
continues to lead their lives "as normal" often forgetting whatever
event that had caused their death. As the dream goes on, the people
and events they encounter become progressively more unreal and surreal.
When the individual is not ready to accept a particular level of
unreality, they will "wake up" and begin another phase of the dream
that is more acceptable to them. Eventually they will detach from
the dream altogether.
The goal of the "Dream After Dying" is to allow
the dead person to experience whatever attaches them to life. The child
will grow up a bit until they can let their parents go. The lovers will
get a chance to love more before saying their Goodbyes. The unfinished
goal will be accomplished and then be left behind.
When the dead person goes through enough cycles
of the "Dream After Dying", they are brought to accept that it is unreal.
They are then led to the realization that they are "dead" to their old
life and must now let it go. Often they will relive their death. While
in they are in the "Dream After Dying" state, they exist in a quarantined
area of the inner worlds. Often, when grieving people are told their
loved ones are in a rest cycle and cannot be contacted by mediums, it is
because they are not yet ready to let go of the "Dream After Dying".
No one can "open the eyes" of those dreamers...
they must do that for themselves. They must decide finally to trade
their dreams for a new reality: a new life in a new body, continuing
the cycle of reincarnation. The movie "Vanilla Sky" is an excellent
depiction of the "Dream After Dying" process.
"O would to God the gift He gives us to see
ourselves as others see us." (Burns)
School is never out. After you die, you will
take the ultimate final exam: an unsparing review of how you have lived
your life. The only way you can prepare for it during your life is to
love yourself and others the best you can. You will be pleased with
After you translate (die), when your guides feel
you are ready, you will get a review of your performance in this life.
In a timeless manner, you will relive each moment of your life. During
this review, you will examine your motivations (why you did what you did)
and their impacts (how you and all others were effected). You will face
the ultimate truth about yourself without excuses.
As you review each incident in your life, you
will relive how you felt at the time. You will also feel how the other
person felt about it from their point of view. You will also see the
"ripple effect" of each incident on all others concerned (how they felt
about it and how it ended up effecting them). This is the ultimate in
karmic justice because you will get - with perfect clarity - how your
loving/unloving actions/inactions effected others… and they will get -
with perfect clarity - how they effected you. There is only the truth
and nothing but the truth.
After Life Rework:
Many times, after an individual has their life
review, there may be some events they want to relive... to see if they
can do better. So they enter into an inner world scenario, temporarily
forgetting the past, feeling like they are back in "real life", to try
new approaches to put right what once went wrong.
In Life Review:
Life reviews are not limited to after death.
Reviews of your life while you are living it (known as
happen all the time. In a compressed timeframe, while awake, you will
go on a journey through past events in your life now. You will relive
key moments in your life. You will see both your actions and inactions
from a higher point of view: the same point of view as a life review.
Leave it to Karma:
This knowledge about the "Life Review"
hopefully will inspire you in two ways. One, you should not regret
when others do not understand you (because they will during their life
review). Two, you should leave any desire for revenge or retribution
to karma and free yourself to know more love now.
