What happens to us when we die? Where does our soul go?
Chances are, if you were brought up in a religious background you believe that there are only 2 places you can go: Heaven and Hell. If you are a good person and believe the right things, you spend eternity in Heaven. If you are a sinful person, you spend an eternity in hell. Thankfully, this is a false dichotomy.
On top of the fact that it doesn’t even make sense to think about only 2 options (both of which are eternal), there has been a lot of scientific investigation into what happens when people leave their bodies when it dies and then return after experiencing time in the spirit world. Thousands of near-death experiences have given us the information we need to form a more accurate picture of what awaits us on the other side. Some do report hellish realms, and almost all report heavenly realms, but there is another side of the coin here that needs to be addressed.
Dr. Michael Newton is a psychologist who specialized in hypnotherapy, where he would put people into hypnosis to bring out any past traumas they experienced in their lives and walk them through the memories into healing. He soon discovered that he was able to bring people back so far into their memories that they were remembering things that weren’t even taking place in this life anymore. They were taking place in between lives.
In his books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls (which together have sold over half a million copies) he shares case studies that he has gathered over the course of four decades of bringing people back into the memories of their souls journey. Surprisingly, they all said the exact same things, and coincided very nicely with a lot of the NDE accounts that have occurred. Here are 7 things which these two fields of study have strongly suggested happen to us when we die:
1) Life Flash
An extremely common phenomenon within people who are dying is that they see their entire life flash before their eyes. The brain snaps into hyper-speed mode and starts revisiting your memory databank before your soul separates from your body.
2) You can see your body
Many people will see their physical body right as they exit it at the moment that consciousness disconnects from the physical body. You will be able to see your surroundings and the things that are happening around your dead body. This will not scare you however, because it will feel as natural as anything. Some people report feeling frustrated or angry over the way they died and wishing that they could go back into their body to seek revenge, but this feeling passes with time as you begin to fall into the Light.
3) The Light
People always report seeing a light when they die. The light appears off in the distance, and you will slowly be pulled towards it, almost as if you are being pulled by a magnet. The light is always accompanied by a sense of love and peace. This is your transition phase back to your home in the spirit world.
4) Seeing dead relatives
Right when you enter into the spirit world after being pulled through the light, you are greeted by loved ones who are there to embrace you and comfort you. It’s sort of like a reunion. These are not necessarily your relatives from your current earth life. They may be family members of yours from previous lives who have been with you throughout your whole souls evolution. Essentially, you have family members you don’t currently know about from a totally different bloodline who will greet you as you enter the spirit world. You will, of course, remember their names and recognize their faces upon return.
It’s important to note here that the souls will take on the image they had in physical form to create a sense of home and familiarity for you. Souls don’t look like they did on earth necessary. The body is just a body. The soul is formless, but can take various shapes to serve different purposes. It is said that advanced souls who have lived many lives don’t necessarily have relatives that greet them, because they understand what the spirit world is about and have been through many times before. It is said in the books that advanced souls sometimes skip this step because it is not needed for them.
5) Guardian Angels/Spirit Guides
You have your own assigned guardian angel, or ‘spirit guide’ depending on which term you like to use better. Whatever you wish to call them, you will encounter your guide in the spirit world and they will comfort you and make you feel at home. But, this is also the time where the fun and games are over. After you experience some of the heavenly realms, duty begins to call. Your guide has been with you and watching you throughout your life, and wants to go over some things with you. It’s time to take out your report card from the life you just lived:
6) Life Review
You meet with your angels/guides and go over everything that happened in your life. People report seeing their entire life as a sort of movie film in front of their eyes or on the pages of a book. You may have to see some things that make you feel ashamed and like you failed, but this is not a time of judgment. This is a time of review, and discussion about what needs to be improved upon as a soul. After you see your whole life, you may come to an agreement with your guides to come back to Earth to work on things after a certain period of time in the spirit world.
7) You Don’t Want To Return
You feel such an overwhelming amount of peace and love that you don’t want to return. You don’t have to worry about illness or earthly tasks. You are boundless, safe, and free. No stress, no pain, and no suffering.
But remember, reincarnation may await you. You may either volunteer to come back to help other souls on earth, you may NEED to come back to alleviate Karma, or you may choose to come back to evolve more as a soul and experience the richness of life.
Keep in mind, these are what thousands of people have been saying about their memories/experiences of the afterlife, and these conclusions are being drawn from forty years of professional work. I personally confidently believe in the reality of such a process, as I think it makes the most sense and is well supported by evidence
That being said, there are people who report going to realms which resemble Hell where they see demons and other nasty things. We can’t turn a blind eye to the reality of dark realms just because they may scare us. Although Dr. Newton did not report any such findings, many people who have had NDEs have had very frightening experiences which had deterred them away from bad behaviour and inspired them to live better lives.
The main thing to take away from this, is that you are taken care of. You are infinitely loved and will be looked after. There is no death, only transition. You WILL get to reunite with the souls of loved ones, and you will experience magical realms. Peace, love, and serenity awaits. But so does accountability. The destiny of your soul is related to your behaviour as a human being in this life. That will be good news to some, and for others may inspire the desire to improve themselves. Either way, we should be asking ourselves the following questions:
How am I treating other souls in this world? What am I doing to help myself and the people around evolve?

Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related, conceived in Jungian theory as an explanatory principle on the same order as causality.
The experience of two or more events which are causally unrelated occurring together in a supposedly meaningful manner. In order to count as synchronicity, the events should be unlikely to occur together by chance.
Last week while checking up on my friends on Facebook, I saw that one of my friends made a statement about how much fun it is when things happen in synchronicity. She mentioned a recent success and how it seemed to just come from out of the blue, like magic!
I am very happy for my friend and her newfound success, but her statement about synchronicity really got me thinking. See, I don’t think synchronicity is a random act of coincidence at all. In fact, I don’t even believe in coincidence. Rather, I believe that our benevolent Universe (you can use your favourite term for it: God, Supreme Intelligence, Zero Point Field, Energy) is always conspiring for our greatest good and that synchronicity is a natural state and it happens all the time – in every situation!
Follow me here. In our limited understanding of things as human beings, we are conditioned to be surprised by our successes and much more apt to accept mediocrity. And with our limited vision, we cannot see the big picture and how ALL of it: the good, the bad and the ugly are all pieces of this synchronicity pie.
It’s easy for us to believe in the magic of synchronicity when seemingly “good things” happen to us, but what about the “bad stuff,” like divorce, illness and or even loss through death? We have a tendency to judge those events as punishment, curses or bad luck. What if I were to say to you that those events are also the good workings of our benevolent Universe? Would you believe me?
Imagine if these negative experiences were actually gifts. Since we cannot possibly see our full potential, coupled with our human tendency to stay in our comfort zones, what if these negative experiences present themselves as a means to push us towards our greatness? After all, isn’t expansion the purpose of our lives?
What if that heart-ache of a divorce instilled in you self reliance that you didn’t know you had? And you then model that behaviour to your children, who grow up to be safe and secure in themselves. The ripple effect could be endless!
Think of people, maybe even yourself, who have survived life threatening illnesses. Many of these people are stronger and healthier than they ever were and they are champions of causes helping people in great numbers with their stories, experience, support and compassion.
We can easily view crisis as defeat and resist it. Or we can embrace it and know that it is a loving shove from the Universe reminding us of our brilliance and to stretch, grow and expand into our divine potential.
We can shift our perception in the snap of our fingers to realize that even the not-so-good stuff are definitely pieces of that mysterious, beautiful and benevolent synchronistic pie… and that synchronicity, divine connections, magic is happening all around us.
Just look for it and you’ll begin to see it everywhere, all the time!

5 Steps to Healing After the Passing of a Loved One.
After losing someone you love, you may feel that a part of you has died as well and not even wish to be here on Earth anymore. On the other hand, your deceased loved ones are probably right there by your side, trying to comfort you, whispering a powerful message in your ear.
“Please don’t grieve for me. It is so hard for me to watch you suffer. I’m in such a peaceful and happy place, and I want you to be in the same wonderful energy.”
As you now fully understand, life is too short, so make sure to embrace each and every day, and be grateful for all the blessings in your life. Love and appreciate those who are still here with you. Be strong, show compassion to everyone you meet, and make a difference in this world. Please go out and enjoy life again. I love you so much, and I will see you again when you join me, many years from now. But for now, be brave and make me proud of all that you are able to accomplish in this time that we are apart.
