Near Death Experience

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

QUESTION: When I was about 3 yrs of age I drowned and was in a coma for 6 months. I have this memory or dream I’m not sure if I made it up or not, about being with a woman who nurtured me and I was very happy! Also I have been obsessed with death and knowing about the hereafter. Do you know why? ~Lela, United States

ANSWER: The experience you had is called a near-death experience or NDE. “Near death” because your physical body was still the primary location of your soul, but your conscious mind was outside your body communing with souls in the unconditional love of Home. During the time you were in this Source energy, you were guided and protected by one of your spiritual guides who helped you decide whether to return to Earth and your physical family or stay at home with the other souls.

At the time you began this particular lifetime, you had a two-pronged plan. The first aspect was to help your family and associates have the experience of losing or coming close to losing a small child. They could feel what guilt, abandonment, deep loss, and blame was like. Many conflicts occurred among them, and they had the opportunity to learn their lessons if they chose.

The second idea was that you might want to end this lifetime at that age and come Home to try something else. During the time you spent with your guide, she and others helped you examine just what would happen if you returned to Earth and what you could do if you chose to terminate this life. You reviewed other lives you had lived and talked about the many lessons you still wanted to explore. You chose to return.

Your fascination with death and the afterlife comes from your having spent that six months in the energy that you experience each time you leave a physical life and return to your essential form. You don’t remember everything that was discussed during that time because when you returned and tried to talk about it with others, they told you it was all a dream. If you visit that period under hypnosis or in deep meditation, you can recapture some of the particulars of the time.

If you are curious, search around to see if you have a chapter of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) near your home. If you have the ability to attend one of their meetings, you will meet a number of people who have had NDEs and will see that they have either very little memory or very specific memories of their time between dimensions.

The nature of man

QUESTION: Masters, I have been told by another channeled entity that I have had several past lives as a soldier and involved in warlike situations. Why are humans so destructive? If we are choosing to learn lessons about ourselves and about the physical plane, why are these lessons so harsh and painful? Are there other beings or species in other parts of the universe who experience harmony and relative peace? ~Francois, Canada

ANSWER: If you have read our Reincarnation Handbook: Journey of the Soul, a free download from our website, you will have knowledge of the journey that all souls on Earth come to experience. The trip is all about learning lessons about the soul and its abilities if you allow yourself to take responsibility for the journey.

Your soul is composed of unconditionally loving energy that was broken off from Source and is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-magnificent. You can do anything you desire if you choose to accept these facts. Earth is the classroom that was created to provide a dualistic arena in which to learn anything. You have to choose whether you want to be controlled by the judgmental ego or be observant in unconditional love. Do you want negative energy that gives you power, or positive energy that appears to let you get pushed around?

The deck is kind of stacked against you as you enter life, because you enter the body with amnesia as to your true nature. Earth society is built on judgment, a place where people determine their  “value” by how they compare to everyone else. Part of deciding this status is who controls whom and who is physically stronger than whom. Contests arise to prove “worth”—sometimes called survival of the fittest. The lessons are harsh and painful because you need something to get your attention. If everything were comfortable, you would have no desire to struggle to understand what you can do to change the way life works for you.

This is the only place where negativity exists. Other planets and locations have various reasons for their existence, such as studying energy in music and art forms, learning how to physically develop whatever one’s body/shell is, imagining new ways in which Earth society might develop, etc. Some discuss the Earth’s great literature, psychological effects on the human body, or why some souls just never seem to be able to understand and work through their life lessons.

What can or should we do?

QUESTION: Masters, my brother is an artist who creates digital art to do with cosmic consciousness. His art is spiritual and soulful. However his head seems to be in the clouds. He refuses to get a “normal” job and if he had a choice would give his art away instead of selling it. While he seems to realize the importance of getting a job, he has been procrastinating over the past few years. He will be 30 years old soon. What does all this mean? What is he here to teach us, what are we here to teach him? How do we be of help to teach him the life lessons he is meant to learn, or are we even to be a part of this teaching process in the first place? ~Aly, Singapore

ANSWER: What is normal? You are saying that your brother, simply by virtue of being in a human life, must choose to conform to society’s idea of how to live his life. You can never make people do something or change their mind about anything unless they agree. Your brother is his own person. We are not judging the path he has chosen. Everything that he does is part of his journey.

The very existence of life is a series of life lessons. Some of his lessons are his alone, and others are group lessons with the family and others. These trials can be found by asking yourself: “Why do his actions aggravate us so much?”

In this situation you will see some forms of jealousy, envy, anger, a sense of responsibility for a family member, and fear that you are doing something wrong. Leaving him alone is a life lesson for all. Let him make his own choices. He is taking responsibility to some degree for his own life. You have no responsibility to care for him.

If you feel he is becoming burdensome on the family, it is time to exercise “tough love” by ceasing to facilitate the lifestyle he has chosen. Tell him it is time for him to be responsible for all aspects of his life, including food, shelter, and clothing. He needs assistance in making the final choices by not being able to fall back on anyone but himself. He can find an environment where he will be an accepted participant. It may be similar to what is occurring now, or it may be your “normal.”
