Yes, though, I'm talking about the "recovery" period between lives.....THAT in itself can last for seemingly an "eternity". The blissful merging with Source. Let alone, the other activities you then take part in, in the spirit world which you are referencing. Each of us will be doing different things in between lives. Who's to say?
I know the book said that about suicide. But, I also don't agree with everything the book says
I'm going to share with you an NDE from a much higher perspective. Granted I do find the general information of great value in the book, I think NDE's offer much greater value than channeled information. I would say we would NEVER choose to re-experience the same situations (especially if you're killing yourself because of a chronic illness, which many do), BUT, what we might choose to re-experience is the THEME. I think there is some validity to the fact that we likely DO realize when all of the pressure is gone from the physical life, that we do want to come back and finish what we started if it warrants it, but each case is different.
Yet, I've read other NDE's pertaining to suicide which completely contradict that view . Here's Kelly Sammy's story. She was a suicide NDE, who OD'd on drugs to attempt suicide, and she was completely ready to stay in the afterlife and had ZERO desire to come back (which she discusses in her videos if you do a google search) because she realized that even suicide was a potential option that was mapped out as a "possibility", until she realized she had made an agreement with her son who she did not want to leave alone.
The day I committed suicide, I overdosed on very heavy sedatives. And LOTS of them. I was in my SUV vehicle laying in the back. I felt my body slow down, my breathing become very shallow and my organs stop working. That is the only way I can describe it. I was literally 'aware' of my death. My first realization that I was "DEAD" was that I was ABOVE my vehicle looking in at my body convulsing and fluids leaving my body. I witnessed the entire thing. I didn't feel scared. No pain. No fear at all. Just a pure peace with it all. And then I was in BLISS. I was not separate from anything-I was EVERYTHING. I became it ALL. This is the oneness I now understand fully. That feeling is just one of EUPHORIA. And I never wanted to LEAVE that place. The feelings that permeated my entire BEING (even though I was not separate or a being--a really difficult thing to explain..)permeated with LOVE. And as I experienced this, I was also a witness to my entire LIFE.
I was able to view and communicate (without ever having to use words) with everyone in my life in a single brief BLIP. I was able to thank, apologize, forgive, accept, and just come to a complete AHA with all that had transpired. This was not something that felt 'necessary' or like a requirement. It was nothing like what I have heard of people having a 'life review'. There was NO judgement. No one to tell me I did this wrong, or this right. All simply WAS and all simply WAS LOVE. And even though I was able to communicate and have those moments of acceptance, apology, forgiveness, etc...that was simply because my human self wanted to close those loops. Almost like a finality if you will. And EVERY SINGLE experience was a celebration. Even those we would label 'bad' or 'wrong' were celebrated purely as an EXPERIENCE.
I feel like this co-experience of ONENESS lasted a lifetime and a second at the same time. Simply because there was NO TIME. My next experience led me to what I refer to as the Akashic Hall of Records and a huge stone table where I was greeted by many Souls, of all 'type'. Some human, others not. Here, I was shown how we as souls chart and draft our life plans. I was able to understand mine further and realize that even this experience of suicide and death was charted. I am giving you minute details simply because of time and space lol but I could talk days about each of these areas of experience during my 18 minutes of apparent 'death'.
I was shown that I would return to the physical vessel that I left and that I would still be the characteristics of Kelly, yet with a knowing that I am MORE than Kelly pre NDE. I had an amazing experience with Arch Angel Gabrielle who led me to a garden with the most magnificent colors and smells. NOTHING I can compare it to here...although I try. Gardenias and the palest of pinks...but again those don't even TOUCH what I experienced. I met my son as an adult. He told me he needed me to return. My Guide Bernadette who I also met, told me I had bigger work to do in helping others be reminded to remember WHO they are. That we are all EVERY THING and NO-THING at the same time. And we are each PERFECT in this illusion of separation. That this experience is truly just that -- and a blip on the radar of who we really are. To be JOYOUS, to be LOVE. To know the contrasts or only so we can know MORE of this JOY and LOVE.
Ultimately, it's all true to whoever is interpreting the information. But, this is why I take bits and pieces of "information" from different sources, and feel what feels best for me.
