Where are our loved ones that have died?
The life after death
A very frequently asked question relates
to the continuity of life after death. Various scientists and
researchers have dedicated themselves to finding answers for this
question and such answers indicate we do end at death; religions have
also affirmed that, in some way, life continues in the after-life, even
if only in a latent state, while waiting for its resurrection.
A question of the highest importance thus
arises: If we are all going to die one day, how will we situate
ourselves in this “after-life”? Are we going to be place in some
celestial storage facility, and wait for the final judgement? Or maybe
we will be left in a state of exhilaration staring at the divine throne,
forever and ever? Or maybe we will be placed on a cloud to play the harp?
Would a being of such dynamic nature, as
are human beings, be able to stand a state of idleness, apathy, and
emptiness, for all Eternity?
The spirits, themselves, have given a
most comprehensive explanation about the "other side" of life. This
information arrived mostly by the work of mediums via psychographic
communications, located at various places on Earth, on various
historical periods. The EVP has also served to spirits, who communicate
via electronic equipments, to pass on similar information.
On these messages, mostly addressed to
relatives and friends, sprits tell their experience while crossing to
the other side – the spiritual dimension – and how this new reality
The first detailed news we heard about
this spiritual world were brought by Reverend G. Vale Owen, a vicar from
Oxford, who mechanically psychographed various messages from his mother,
already deceased, and from other more enlightened spirits. These
messages, which are, in fact, reports about dimensions that are
invisible to us, were published in 1920-1921.
However, the messenger of much broader
and more detailed reports of an spiritual dimension, and the life and
activities of its inhabitants, was the spirit of Andre Luiz, who
authored 11 books psychographed by the medium Francisco Cândido Xavier
(Chico Xavier): The Astral City, The Messengers, Missionaries of Light,
Workers of the Eternal Life, At the Bigger World, Liberation, Between
Earth and Sky, At the Domains of Mediumship, Action and Reaction, Sex
and Destiny, And Life Goes On (not all have been translated into English
André Luiz shows us that this other side
of life is very similar to the side we have here. There are many
similarities. Nobody is wandering around as a ghost, nor playing harp on
a cloud. The spiritual world is as real and dynamic to spirits as the
physical world is to us.
This is the main reason why many spirits
do not know, or cannot believe, that they have passed away. These are
those who thought that by dying they would go to heaven, to purgatory or
even to hell, or that death would “erase” them forever. Instead, they
find themselves almost in the same situation as before. Many go back
home, or go back to the working environment. They see people and speak
to them, but as one can imagine, people do not pay any attention to what
they say or do. Based on this, they believe they turned out crazy or
that they are living an interminable nightmare. Some watch their own
memorial service and burial, but do not accept the idea that those
funerals are theirs.
Various spirits on these conditions may
approach somebody else, namely a relative or a friend, and may start to
“feed” from his or her energy and at the same time communicate his own
suffering, which may provoke numerous symptoms, both physical and
mental, not really treatable by conventional medicine.
One of the main activities of a
Spiritist Center, especially in Brazil, is the instruction of such
spirits, better, known as “suffering spirits”. Mediums are prepared to
incorporate a spirit like this while a trained instructor speaks to him
or her and explain the reality. The entire group involves the suffering
spirit in a vibration of love and peace. In this way, his pain is
alleviated and his vibratory level starts to improve.
Such vibratory elevation is necessary so
that he or she can be assisted by benefactors and taken to a treatment
centre in the spiritual word.
There also those who, after the death of
the physical body, return to the spiritual world quite conscious of what
is going on, that is, they know, or at least have a guess that they
desincarnated, or “passed away”.
When somebody dies (desincarnate), it is
very important to send him or her vibrations of love, instead of the
usual manifestation of despair that takes place in these occasions.
Spirits, through mediumship, have very
often told us about their dramas, having reported about their sufferance
and afflictions due to despair and lack of balance of their relatives
and friends, after their death. They report that the tears shared by
their beloved ones who stayed behind arrive to them with a lot of
intensity and thus cause them very intense distress.
For all these reasons, while facing the
death of a dear one, people should maintain a respectful, peaceful, and
balanced attitude, and to be in a state of prayer. The one who has just
“left” needs these vibrations of peace and these prayers, very much.
What is vibratory frequency?
Thought and emotion produce what is
called, vibration, and its substance reflects what is in our soul, thus
defining its frequency, from the lowest to the highest level our own
condition may generate.
The writer Francisco Carvalho, on the
book Human Energetic Influences, elaborated an imaginary scale that goes
from 0 to a 100 degrees, with the following values: at the degree 0 we
have hate, the emotion with the lowest vibratory substance; at 10 the
desire of revenge; at 20 envy and jealousy; at 30 resentment, bitterness
and so forth, up to the neutral feelings, which are place at 50 degrees.
At 70 degrees, at the positive zone, we will find hope; at 80 faith; at
90 prayer and joy; and finally, at a 100, it is where love is located,
the strongest positive vibration that exists.
At the scale of negative vibrations, we
may add the numerous vicious behaviours, addictions, cruelty, perversity,
and other types of perversion; and the conversations about the topics
related to lower passions and addictions, etc.
On the other hand, in order to elevate
the vibration substance, we could add the noble feelings, the readings
and conversations directed at subjects relating to religiousness,
fraternity, and pure love; the healthy joy and meditation about
lightening topics, in short, everything that may connect us and open our
channels towards the highest forces of life.
This information is based on scientific
research such as the very well know studies which were carried out by
North-American universities, in which a group of people vibrated with
feelings of hate and desire of destruction towards some plants place in
a room, while another group vibrated with love and affection towards
plants located in another room. The first group of plants suffered all
the damning effects of those vibrations: they faded, and some even died.
The other ones, which received the vibration of love, became healthier
and even prettier. Well, if a plant may suffer such influences, what can
we say about human beings!
Concerning information about spirits and
the spiritual world, there is an extensive bibliography in the subject,
particularly the works psycographed by Chico Xavier, which include
writings and signatures of persons who have lived. When analysed by
scientific experts, these concluded to be indeed the hand writing and
signature of the deceased person who claimed to have dictated (or
written by incorporation) the piece of work.
