What Happens When We Die

Written by Gary Wonning

Many of us have often wondered what happens to us when we die?

It is an age old question and one that is difficult to correctly answer because once we die, we theoretically can no longer communicate with those who we have left behind.

There are individuals who have had a near death experience or an out of body experience who have relayed their perception of what they encountered.

Many of them tell of similar encounters when they return to our plane of existence.

Most often, those who have had a NDE tell of passing through the light, or going towards the light and meeting a spiritual being such as Jesus, who tells them their mission on earth is not complete and they need to go back so they can accomplish what they came to earth to do.

They then return to their physical body, recover from their accident or illness and resume their lives, often while accomplishing important duties.

While this is interesting and important information, it still doesn’t explain what happens after we die, since these people never actually died.

All of this being said, the only information we can rely on is the knowledge we gather from psychics, mystics and those who have done past life and in between life regression.

Although many would dispute this type of information, it is the only thing we have to go on, and when so many repeat the same scenario, we can rely on it being pretty accurate.

Most offer a slightly different version of the same story: when physical death occurs and souls leave their bodies, after passing through the “light” they are  greeted by their Spirit Guides, who accompany and guide them to the non physical dimension where souls go after death.

The Guides are highly evolved souls who mentor and direct other souls toward spiritual evolution. Sometimes, souls who just passed away are greeted by loved ones who have previously died and who may also be their Guides.

They are then shown the Tree of Life and communicate with other spirits with whom they have had many incarnations where the previous lifetime is contemplated and discussed. Once they are ready again to reincarnate, all the possibilities of what they would like to accomplish and the best possible way to accomplish their mission. 

Their new life is then discussed with all the souls who will be participating in the life adventure, and if all are willing , the reincarnation process begins.

America Doesn’t Have A Mental Health Problem

Sell Art Online

 

Written by Gary Wonning

In light of the recent school shootings and the continuous effort by the hard left to abolish our right to defend ourselves, the new mantra is that America has a Mental health problem and that issue is at the heart of our country’s ills. 

I won’t disagree with that statement, there are many individuals who do have mental health issues brought on by a variety of reasons. and there needs to be facilities and professional care available to help these individuals. 

But there is a larger problem. Mamy of our young have not been taught to cope with the problems that inadvertently come into our lives. Life is what life is, and into every life some rain must fall. We cannot avoid this, regardless of how we prepare. 

In many cases society, and parents no longer provide the needed training for our young. Kids are often sheltered from these adversities by well meaning adults and never given the opportunity to grow from those experiences. 

At the  first sign of  rowdy behavior, or a young child showing a lack of focus, they are given a drug to calm them down. They are just young children, that is what young children do, they don’t focus, let them be a kid, there is nothing wrong with them. 

To be successful in life, and deal with the hardships that come our way, kids need to be taught how to lose, that art has been taken away, these days everyone gets a participation trophy, making everyone a winner. 

There are no participation trophies in real life. How can kids learn to lose if they are taught to be winners regardless of how they perform? How are they ever gong to learn to improve themselves, if they don’t ever have to? 

Political correctness has destroyed what was once the core of our American value system. Self reliance, hard work, personal responsibility, and teaching our children how to deal with adversity have disappeared from the play book of child raising. 

Some parents and families still teach their children the age worn values that made our country great, but they are becoming few and far between.

Because of this,  America now has a moral health problem, our values, as a country have sunk so far below what they were when our great country was founded, its not even the same country anymore. 

Many of the reasons for our kids inabilities to cope are created by the societal changes in our culture and have nothing to do with the individual. Children are no longer raised with the same values instilled in the kids of an earlier era. Many of the values of a time gone by are forgotten and are deemed no longer applicable in today’s modern world. 

Only when our moral health issue is resolved, only then will our mental health issues disappear, and many of the multitude of issues facing us as a country will also fade away and become insignificant once again. 

Only when we once again return to the teachings of our ancestors will our country return to greatness.

Can Souls Die ?

Art Prints

 

Written by Gary Wonning

Many have asked if it is possible for a soul to die. If a person leads a totally regressive life and does all sorts of unimaginable evil, does his soul die and rot in hell?

A soul is energy and energy can neither be destroyed or die.  However, when one engages in activity detrimental  to the highest good, the soul can become detached from the physical body, the lack of faith shown by the individual creates a situation where the individual becomes empty and the soul shrinks from importance and begins to lose energy.

Once a soul depletes it will have very weak energy, and not able to reach their Guide or connect with the higher state of being. It is then very hard for it to return in physical form. We might relate this to being depressed in our current reality. They would need time and contemplation to once again be ready to return to the physical form to proceed to their next earthly lessons. 

They would continuously float between the two dimensions until they once again find their way Home, often aided by other souls. In this process, they would learn there are always other souls who are more than willing to aid them in their journey back. The souls offering the assistance are also advancing their development by aiding those in distress. 

The affected souls may end up in lower dimensions of life and continue their process from these lower levels, sort of a refresher course, if you would.  Once they realize there are always guides available to assist in their progress, they will receive guidance . If they are not open, there is no guidance for them. It is one of the valuable lessons of the soul. Sometimes the hardest lesson to learn is to accept help from others. 

There are always souls who are ready and willing to help if and when we ask. But we also need to be open to them. How many times have you asked for guidance and then closed yourself to any nudging you may have gotten from those beyond?  How many times have you ignored the promptings of the soul because you were afraid, or didn’t believe, or were afraid there may be a successful outcome of your actions. 

Many times, we as humans are more afraid of success than we are of failure. When we succeed, many times more is asked of us and we are afraid of the challenge.

The Guides send messages through thoughts, dreams, and the realization of desires. The message isn’t always a loud booming voice from the heavens so often depicted in the bible.  I would venture to guess, those voices many of the prophets heard, were just subtle messages or thoughts such as we are talking about today.

The spirit guides don’t just work with one person, they are available to everyone, but we need to remain open to the possibility and not close ourselves down because we think it is too absurd to enter our vision of reality. 

Many times people refer to their good fortune as “luck”, it isn’t luck, or coincidence, there are no coincidences. It is the universe responding to our requests, and we being open to receive the message.

As I became aware of in my own personal journey, there are many truths we have yet to learn.

Why do We Incarnate Into Poor Underpriviledged Lifetimes?

Photography Prints

 

Written by Gary Wonning

There are many reasons why souls decide to incarnate into poor underprivileged lifetimes. 

Understanding this concept is a big hangup for many when they begin to try and understand the theory of reincarnation.  It is often difficult for humans to understand why they would choose such a lifetime  when there are many ways to enjoy an easier less complicated existence on earth. 

They can’t fathom doing something like that to themselves, so they immediately put the burden on God, thereby releasing themselves from any responsibility of the current situation. 

By taking such a position, they immediately nullify any learning they would have had from the life lessons they came to learn, and by doing so it opens themselves up to the possibility of having to do it all over again. These lessons don’t go away until we understand  them fully, regardless of how many lifetimes it takes.

It’s better to learn the lesson the first time it is presented rather to create the need to relearn it many times over.  By learning  during the first incarnation, we are then free to go on to the next life course and continue our evolution. 

If we choose our destiny and the life we incarnate into , why would we choose a lifetime of hardship ? Why wouldn’t we just choose a lifetime of opulence and ease, living a lifestyle admired by everyone instead of one of extreme hardship, poverty, disease and struggle?

Often times, we choose such an existence because we have been unkind to those in such life situations in a previous life, and we have come back to rectify what we did and make amends to those we have offended. 

We all need to live such lives to be able to understand the whole of creation, we simply are unable to understand a certain life situation unless we live it, it just can’t be explained to us. 

Those lifetimes are the times we learn compassion and humility and are often deemed our most valuable lifetimes, the times when we learn and evolve the most. There are no wasted lifetimes, even though we may think so at the time. We can often learn  more by existing in the most humble stations of life than we sometimes learn being an important dignitary on the world scene. 

 

Often times, our first incarnation on earth will be in such a station in life, it is the souls way of gradually adapting to life on earth, and maybe even possibly getting some of the hard lessons out of the way early in their earthly travels. 

The reasons we all incarnate in these lifetimes are many and varied. The more we inquire and study our past, the more we can learn and control our future.

The Purpose of Life on Earth

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

What is the purpose of life on Earth?

Why do we incarnate on this planet?

These are questions each and everyone of us has asked at least once during our existence on planet earth.

Why are we here?

There has to be more to it than just growing up, getting a job, growing old and dying.

What would be the purpose of it if  that was all there was to life.

It was a question I asked many years ago and it began a personal search for answers.

Through it all, I found my answers, they may not be someone else’s answers, but the search satisfied my yearnings.

There are many reasons we incarnate on earth,  and each satisfies the personal yearnings of our soul. This yearning enables us to grow and evolve into higher realms of spirituality.

We, or our soul is energy, energy that transforms into a physical body when we incarnate.

As we grow energetically, we learn to help others to enable them to also grow spiritually and reach their highest potential.

We are spiritual beings that have a physical body. The way we grow is to increase our energy, our energy nourishes itself with other energy, in other words, we energize ourselves by connecting with divine source.

How do we increase our energy? We don’t just grab it out of the air without doing anything.

We increase our energy by collecting love and positive feelings while in the physical body and by living and experiencing life.

The more we rise above the conflicts of life and succeed to gather positive thoughts in spite of the goings on around us, the more positive energy we create, we then offer these positive vibes to others thereby giving them the opportunity to become more positive in the process.

By offering our positive vibes to the universe, we are subconsciously opening new pathways to new lives and experiences for others, if they are willing to accept them.

By providing this opportunity to others, we are actually creating new lives, just as a mother gives birth to a new soul.

Many religions around the world believe as we each evolve and advance spiritually, we create new universes and live future lives on other planets, teaching others who may come the wonders of the universe and thus enabling them to learn the universal knowledge of the universe.

It is a continuous cycle, and goes a long way to explain where we  humans came from before planet earth was inhabited by the homo sapiens.

Do We Live Parallel Lives?

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

The concept of parallel lives can be very confusing.

Many of us who have been brought up in western civilization only come in contact with the concept of reincarnation later in life.

We are often taught to believe we  only live once and after passing on we reside in heaven until the resurrection when Jesus comes and saves us, then we are judged and if found worthy, reside in heaven for the rest of eternity, however long that may be.

It can take some time for many to accept the possibility that reincarnation may be possible, the opposite has been so ingrained in many it has become a permanent part of their belief system.

We are also taught that we are a body who has a soul, and we personify everyone and everything, even God, thus because we have a physical body, we can only be in one place at a time.

When we begin to realize we are a soul that occupies a body, that puts an entirely different spin on the whole scenario. As we progress in our learning, we gradually begin to realize, either through learning or personal experience that it is possible for us to be seen in two different realities simultaneously.

Many people experience seeing loved ones return and visit them after they have passed on, sometimes years later. How would this be possible if we weren’t omnipresent?

We are each and every one of us part of God, God is omnipresent, so if we are part of him we would be omnipresent also.

When one begins studying the concept of reincarnation it normally begins with an individual discovering one past life, then after some time, if the individual soul keeps doing research, he or she suddenly discovers additional past lives.

Suddenly their whole perspective changes, a whole new world opens up to them. They then try to chronologically arrange their lives, filling in the gaps into one continuous chain of lifetimes. Suddenly, a monkey wrench is thrown into the situation, they come across a time when they were living two lives simultaneously.

What a dilemma, what do we make of this?

Depending on the individual and their belief mechanism or personal experiences they have to start believing that parallel lives are a reality, once that occurs, it opens up a whole new perspective and possibilities we never even imagined.

We begin to realize we are living all our lives simultaneously, and the one we are seeing as reality is only the one we are focusing on, kind of like turning a radio, all the stations are available for us to listen to, but we only hear the one we are tuned in to.

We are all living  parallel lives and each has a bearing on the other, if we make changes in one of our lives, it changes the reality in the others.

The past and future are parallel , but in between the two, in linear time, resides the NOW, and that determines which version of the future you experience. That is why living in the NOW is so important, the decisions you make in the present could put you in a less desirable future, hence karma.

As a result, everything you do changes the reality on the earth plane, from our perspective. Hence, if you want to change the world, change yourself.

The process in unending as we continue to grow and learn of our connection with Divine Source.

How Do Twin Flames Evolve?

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Souls are often compared to a clump of grapes.

The clump of grapes is the actual soul and each individual grape is an individual representation of the whole. As the grapes choose to incarnate on earth or elsewhere, they seperate from the clump and live their individual life experience. After fulfilling their mission in physical form, they once again return to the “clump”.

After they return, the whole “clump” learns from their experience and the soul is able to evolve much quicker than if just one personification of the soul incarnated at a time. 

As a result, we can actually have more than one twin flame in the physical existence at the same time, and many times we meet on the physical plane and experience life together. We choose  which entity to join with based on our life mission, and the mission of the other soul fragment. 

We recognize the other aspect of our soul when in human form, even though in some it would be subtle and they wouldn’t recognize them as a soul mate, just someone whom they get along with quite well, and who they have much in common.

Many we meet on  a daily basis could fit that mold, but a twin flame would be more special than the others and would maintain a special place in our heart, even for many years after the meeting. 

If you should separate on the physical level, they would never leave your memory.

Often times, we choose the wrong twin and it doesn’t correspond with our mission, that is why often times, relationships don’t work out. As people used to say, we are in the right church, but the wrong pew. 

In this instance we have two choices, change partners, or change our mission, in most cases if we change our mission, we will never be happy, unless our original mission was to change our mission.

This is our decision and our decision alone, only we can know the correct path to follow, and we can only know which path to follow by letting our instincts, or gut tell us, we have to listen within, no one can tell us.

In the case of twin flames incarnating simultaneously, they each benefit, evolve, and grow from the experience, even if one aspect of the soul seems to decrease vibrationally. 

The end result will be positive and if one of them did well, it will lift up the others.
