There are so many books written about when we die, and many of them are a waste of time reading them. I am sorry, but that is the way I feel about it. Each version is what they think it is like, or what they have been told. Thanks to my teachers and to Maitreya, I have been able to actually see what it is truly like from the moment we die until we have passed through the reception areas. Believe me, it is nothing to be frightened of at all. Yet, we have such a fear of death and dying!
For instance, it is not a place where we are punished, told we are sinners, or where we have to pay for anything we have done wrong. The Ultimate Being, or God, is such a loving, compassionate energy. Yes, it is sad when you have come home perhaps without learning anything, but that energy does not chastise you. In fact, the love it embraces you with is so complete, so beautiful, that one cannot believe any energy could give you so much love. It is you who are disappointed in yourself for not learning or changing – no one else.
Thousands of souls return each day, not learning anything at all, and none of them is made to suffer in any way. Only love is given and, believe me, in that Presence one feels as if one is home. Usually though, there is a soul memory of religion, belief systems, conditioning etc., and it is this that has to be removed before one can move forward into true Spirit and past the reception areas. One sees the imperfections one has when one has to look at one’s life. This is done at the very beginning of the process after one has had a rest from passing over. Some people have a traumatic passing, and something like that really makes an impact on the soul memory. It takes time in the next world to release and remove this energy, but one cannot move on until it has been removed.
