Is there life after death?
What happens when you pass over to the spiritual realms after the body dies, according to the accounts of thousands of people who have had near-death experiences, depends largely on your expectations and beliefs. We're conditioned by our physical existence and that continues afterwards in the spiritual mind that continues onward (our mind in the body is not just the brain, which is more like an interface and body control system). We tend to be attached to our appearance and our favorite occupations and so we continue with these afterwards - with a healthy, younger body. Everything is possible since we create our reality, and that is much more apparent there than here. It depends on our awareness when we die; our vibration, depending on the amount of love we feel and express.
Also we are met by loved ones and our guides, and we review our life on Earth and learn important lessons, so we may then choose to be and act differently from then on. And we re-unite with our Higher Self, the soul that created an aspect of itself, the spiritual identity, to incarnate. The main thing we realize is that we are loved, and at last we love ourselves - these are much harder to realize and to do when identified with a body, with all of its survival instincts and insecure fears.
The higher your vibration, the more conscious you are of creating your new reality, and that vibration attracts more of the same. You can visit friends and family on the other side and those remaining on Earth, they're just a thought away. Loving service, caring, compassion - those are the qualities that raise your vibration, make you less solid both here and there. That's as Jesus taught, in order to enter heaven. Not being perfect or 'superior' in any way. Also, we all make mistakes and indeed we came here to learn from them. God is infinitely forgiving and non-judgmental, and God is the universal consciousness that we are part of, like a drop of water in the ocean. An ocean of love.

On earth, families can be extensive. But there is a big difference between a human family and a spiritual family of humanity as a whole. Let's think beyond the box of petty materialism, which does not acknowledge anything beyond the five senses of the body. The Game is much bigger than that! Continues...
