My Near-Death Experience.
Aware of all circumstances in their life, people see what effect they have had on themselves as well as others. Seeing how one action reflects another, they understand that they are capable of commanding great power in their relationships. They also comprehend that the whole universe is one big relationship. We are not alone. We are one but separate.
A near-death experience put me on both sides of this equation, because I died for fifteen minutes on an operating table while having surgery in September 1980. Not only did I see ghosts but I became one in an instant.
What is a ghost?
We are only ghosts in human clothing called the body.
Once as I walked into my den, I almost ran over a stranger standing just inside the doorway. In a panic but rapidly weighing my options, I had to decide quickly how to get away from this person, but he was within arm's length, in what had been my safe home just a few minutes ago. Quickly, I had to decide he was a ghost.
Since he was not my husband, there was no reason for him to be there unless he was a burglar or someone who meant to do me harm. Trying to get out of this intruder's way before I ran completely over him and had no chance of escape, I continued to check out this man from his shoes up, because he should not have been in my house.
Having to make a life-altering examination of this man in a split second was critical. My heart was pounding and my breath stuck in my throat. My mind went into overdrive. What is the best method of escape? How do I fight back? Look at his hands and see if they are reaching for me!
He was looking straight ahead with his arms at his sides and never even turned to look at me. Beyond any doubt, I knew that he was aware of my presence. Now I had time to investigate a little more but I was still frightened out of my mind.
All of a sudden I saw a shape leave the woman with lightening speed, and carrying a considerable wind, it headed straight for me. Thinking I was hidden behind the wall, I felt safe until this monster made my hiding place unsafe by coming through the wall right up to my face. His face was hideous.
Turning on my astral legs, I ran with him chasing me as fast as I could go back to the safety of my own bed. Looking down upon my husband before I entered my body again, I screamed his name. "Claude," I said, "wake me up now!"
The only bad things the ghosts had done were to hide one shoe each of several pairs of shoes and a hammer. The owners were not to the point of wanting to leave their home to the ghosts but were having a hard time with the items being taken. One moment, the needed items were there, the next they were gone. It was frustrating.
Upon visiting the house, I came to realize quickly that this was a nice house for ghosts to visit. The daughter who lived there was quite an artist in more ways than one. She was so gifted psychically that it was even hard for her to fathom. Most of the ghostly entities were around her age.
Channeling or Mediumship
In working with people and animals, a medium may be trying to learn about or communicate with the person, either dead or alive. Then she or he can give precious information to loved ones waiting to hear from their departed friends or family.
Inanimate objects usually give channels a history or a story of some sort. Sometimes what people consider inanimate is truly animate when giving details about its' lives. They have spirit just as everyone does and as a part of God deserves the same respect we humans want.
Plants are fully capable of being channeled, too. A green thumb will say that she just knows what the plants need. Some don't even know how they keep their plants alive, but they have what it takes.
Although I have been a medium all my life, when I came out of the psychic closet I thought I needed more concrete evidence that I was channeling than what I had received all my life. When someone asked me a psychic question, I knew I was getting the correct answer when I felt a very sharp pain in my stomach. But it was fear of being wrong that caused that pain. I continued in this manner until the "other side" called a halt to this hurtful method. They told me that if I would listen, I could hear the answers. Psychic ability does not always come in the form of a clanging bell, but a whisper.
Many people believe that if a person is talking to someone who can't be seen by everyone, that person must be nuts. But the same people who don't believe in channeling will go to church and talk to God with the expectation that He is hearing and answering their prayers. For them, talking with God, whose existence cannot be proven, is all right because everyone knows without a doubt there is a God.
Saying things such as, "I can feel God in my life," or "He has spoken with me," is acceptable when used in religious context. Others will say they have seen God with a little less enthusiasm because that might be broaching insanity if the other church members have not. All of these people have been channeling information under the context of religion.
Religion does not have to be a part of channeling, but spirituality does. People channel through their birthright, which is a gift from God. As with all psychic ability, every entity has this birthright when born. Not all decide to use the gift, but all have it.
Karma and Reincarnation
Biblical comments regarding reincarnation
Several passages in the Bible relate to reincarnation. They cannot be discounted in one's quest for information on reincarnation. When read and dissected, they leave no doubt that reincarnation is in the Bible.
If the soul only had one chance at physical life, there would be no reason to continue striving to learn. "Get all you can while you are in a physical body because you can't take it with you," would be most people's motto. Then past lives would have nothing to do with the souls progression. There would be no reason to give them credence.
Another instance of this is in John 9:1-3 in a passage concerning a conversation between Jesus and his disciples: "As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?' 'Neither this man nor his parents sinned,' said Jesus, 'but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.'"
Now to my way of thinking, how could this man who was blind since birth have sinned before birth? Either Jesus had a belief in reincarnation or reincarnation is truth.
Jesus even answered that neither the man nor his parents had sinned. He didn't say, "Are you stupid? This man wasn't even born yet. How could he sin before birth?"
Instead he answered the disciple's question. If he had not believed in reincarnation, then he would have gone into a dissertation about man only living one physical life. In other words, this was not a Karmic lesson but a lesson to be learned to glorify God and maybe Jesus even had the ulterior motive to make people aware of reincarnation.
While sleeping, you feel someone enter your bedroom. Suddenly you jerk awake and sit up, as your heart pounds wildly, only to find your husband finally coming to bed. Your aura did its job to alert your physical body to the entrance of another being. It has encircled you and filled the room so that anyone passing through your soul space will awaken you. Law-enforcement agents use this ability while awake or asleep to assess lifesaving situations.
Auras are a natural in the field of love. Attraction comes from two auras touching before two people even notice each other. Auras seek out others who are most compatible with them. Once the auras touch and agree they feel good together, eyes of the two people meet. Now physical attraction catches up to the sense of spirit. Both start to display physical signs of interest. Floating across the room toward each other, they both feel the exhilaration of first attraction.
When one aura meets another, they begin examining each other immediately. As they test the waters, they look like two lovers groping until they are satisfied as to the intent of the two physical beings. Once they have inspected each other sufficiently, they can make an intelligent decision as to whether to run from the other entity or make it a friend.
