In some, what you would call alien civilizations, there are meaningful communications that predominate through the use of precise manipulations of thermal qualities or sound frequencies that have nothing to do with words or phrases. There are some societies that rely on precise manipulations of color, gradations beyond the limited spectrum of color available to you at this time. Strong intensity of color then would be translated as strong, vivid emotions or feelings.
There are other considerations here that should give you a hint of the existence of communication carried on by even yourselves that are usually overlooked, that even you use as a means of conveying information and feelings other than words that your are not consciously aware. A look, a stare, a shrug, a grunt, a sigh, a variety of other physical gestures backed up by intense emotion, can say more than a hundred words strung out in linear fashion. Words and phrases require time are a clumsy affair to begin with, and one intense thought backed up by strong feelings and emotions, about lets say a past war, a wedding or a death can transmit more information instantaneously than an entire book.
This type of conceptual communication is of course called telepathic communication and this my friends is the universal means of communications of more advanced civilizations and it could be said that when one dies, he/she steps out of the physical system into a more advanced system, even though it would not be considered a comprehensive, historical context realty system. Now, dead is dead, but since only the body is dead in your terms, the personality carries on, moving on to a temporary system in another dimension entirely, which serves as an in-between system for those recently transitioned.
This in-between system is other dimensional, but is still in what you could call the “Earth Neighborhood” and actually shares the same space as the physical Earth. This system has far more freedoms than yours, and most importantly, far less challenges even though it does hold some serious surprises for those recently departed. By no means is this system a sterile “Heaven” like place for the lazy, but it can be a place of sublime contentment for those recently exiting from an exacting physical life. It is from this system that another transition will finally take place as the personality learns, grows, studies and makes decisions as to it’s next physically materialized adventure, and will eventually choose another more advanced, permanent reality system to inhabit.
The telepathic thought transference method of communications is the method that will be used by the “recently dead” survival personalities when attempting to talk with those left behind. The recently departed do not become proficient in telepathic communication magically upon death, but communication skills are developed as they learn more about their new condition and adapt to their new surroundings. One does not become instantly wise from a state of ignorance upon physical death. The clueless will step into their new system as clueless as they were when they died, until the learn and progress. Wisdom is not a characteristic freely given upon death, but must be acquired though study and diligence to learning and there is no magic transference of knowledge to an ignorant personality upon death.
Having gotten that out of the way, let me say that there is a vast difference between the “spoken word” and the ”thought word”. The survival personality does not communicate directly using lips, tongue or mouth but with telepathic messages bridging two systems, but still uses “thought words”, in other words, he thinks concepts in words and these thought words are sent out to those who have been and are still emotionally connected with them. These survival personalities (dead in your terms) are more alive than you are, but from your viewpoint, you will have trouble understanding this. For those of you who like simple explanations, you could say that the act of dying releases you from the physical body, settling you into your familiar dream body, the dream body retaining all of its previous attributes, but its experience now is fully conscious. This new body will be so much like your past physical body that you may not realize the difference until you try to use it as you would your past physical body in the physical system. It will have form, but it will not have mass.
Don’t take this analogy too seriously, because of your dreaming past dreaming experiences, it would leave you with some big misconceptions which we will discuss at another time. It will suffice for now to say that what seems like uncontrolled chaos in the dreaming state, becomes quite orderly after death, not in the actual dream universe, but with a dream -ike body in the after-death system.
But it is from this dimension that the survival personalities communications will take place with those still ensconced within the physical Earth system. Remember the survival personality has one big advantage that you don’t have, being that he/she/it knows that he is alive and well, and you can only hope that is true. (Please excuse the pronoun usage, it is strictly for convenience sake).
On the death of a loved one, there is usually great sorrow at their absence by those still within the physical system. At the time of transition there is usually an initial period of confusion, especially for those whose beliefs were deeply influenced by dogmatic religious beliefs. Those who have not been indoctrinated in such dogma, would then find the transition easier to understand. There are those literally, who refuse to believe that they are dead, but eventually their true condition will become evident, as the consul with others.. For this initial period soon after transition, communication will be sparse while the new personality reacquaints itself with old friends who have passed before him, and some who have gone before him in other lives. Old friends will reacquaint with each other and particular lives lived in different centuries will be no barrier to emotional connections. It is important to note that the recently dead “survival personality” wants desperately to assure those left behind that they are OK, so rest assured that to the limits of their abilities, they will attempt to make contact with those whom there are strong emotional ties.
If you were most recently male, you might meet again a favorite wife from many centuries ago in the past who carries more favor with you than your most recent wife left behind. You may then decide to spend another lifetime together in another system, another dimension and perhaps work on old challenges not solved in the first relationship. There is no end to things, and some friendships last eternally, renewed and refreshed again and again, while even some family members who with you have no particular bond will go their own way. You might say it is deja vu over and over again. (Thanks to Yogi Berra).
Now, back to communication with those who have died, transitioned, adapted and gotten their sea legs in this new system, this would then be the opportune time for communication to take place, before in your terms, they have time to get too involved in plans for a new life. You must remember, that the system temporarily inhabited by the recently dead, exists outside of your concept of time, so my following statements are relative to you only, and not so much to them. Communications from your standpoint time wise, would be from approximately one week after death for the next year. Survival personalities can reincarnate immediately, but it is not likely and not recommended for healthy growth and expansion of consciousness. From this temporary system, communications will be made with some facility. After they once again transition to another more permanent, advanced system, communications will be difficult if not impossible, so pay attention during the first year.
Remember to the survival personality, time does not exist any more, so as they begin to adapt to their new temporary home, they must learn new methods of communication just as you must learn and practice still makes perfect. (Ha). They have another advantage in communicating with you in that they can still SEE YOU, and you cannot see them. So they will know if their attempts are successful in sending telepathic messages to you or not. You will have to learn to trust your feelings and emotions because they are the real carriers of information between those still in the corporal body and those in the dream body. Do not expect to receive messages from those who you have NO real emotional connection.
You will have to learn a new way to alert you of these non-verbal word-concept messages by looking where there is nothing, paying attention to nuances and learning to listen to the inner noise of your feelings and emotions. Survival personalities CAN influence matter and move physical objects, but usually only with the assistance of an experienced person with mediumistic abilities, so don’t expect your bed to rise and float across the room. Messages will usually come when you are not concentrating on receiving messages. The conscious ego gets in the way of extra sensory perception and telepathic communications, so messages will bleed though when you are least thinking about it, when you are otherwise distracted.
These inter-dimensional messages will sometimes blast you with a flash of intuition, a meaningful symbol of something that was important between you, a feeling about something that you closely shared with the survival personality. It goes without saying here that “trust” is an important factor here, trust and a belief that these communication are not only possible, but likely to occur. Sometimes these inter-dimensional messages will be given to you in the dream state, so it is vital that you try to remember your dreams. Give yourself the suggestion before going to bed, that you will be able to wake up and remember dreams received with messages from your loved ones.
Believe me, the survival personality seeks communication as much as you do, and it is your job to recognize them when they do happen. It also goes without saying that intuition is more important here than the intellect and intellectual knowledge should not be relied on in seeking contact with survival personalities. Contact is something that cannot be forced and in fact is less likely to happen when you want it to happen.
Sorry, but that’s just the way it is for you now, but here’s the good news, even though you are now not egotistically aware of these other realities in any personal ways, and you are separated from your departed loved ones by great psychological distance, they are closer than you think. You are evolving toward full awareness of your total identity and awareness of the existence of these other personalities that seem dead and gone now, and even now and in the distant future, you will follow those you love across the vast reaches of the universe.
There are many inward journeys to take
Some will take you far afield on seldom traveled roads
Each journey must be taken alone.
There are many times and they all exist Now.
You are not separated by centuries from your loved ones dead or alive,
but by psychological depth and spiritual awareness.
Love, feelings and emotions are the connective
that transcend the illusion of time and space.
A message received between a survival personality
and those left behind, has traveled farther
than the most distant star in the known universe.
