Life Between Lives

30 Aug

I stared at the beautiful Being of Light who

simmered before me…Rather than issuing

harsh judgment, the Being of Light was a

friendly counsel, letting me feel for myself the

pain and the pleasure I had caused others.

-Dannion Brinkley

Near-death experiences, past-life regressions and the accounts of those who “see” spiritual planes with their inner eye have all painted a picture of what takes place between lives.  The accounts say that between embodiments we are in a heightened state of awareness, one that seems more real than life on earth.

They describe beautiful lakes and glistening cities as well as encounters with “beings of light.”  Dannion Brinkley, who has had three near-death experiences, was let to a “city of cathedrals” made “entirely of crystalline substance that glowed.”  He later found out that these were halls of learning–places “where there was no pain and knowledge flowed freely.”

Life Between Life by Dr. Joel Whitton and Joe Fisher describes the experiences of those who recalled under hypnosis what they did between lifetimes.  Some reported they studied “in vast halls of learning equipped with libraries and seminar rooms.”  Doctors and lawyers spoke of “studying their respective disciplines during the interlife while others remember applying themselves to such subjects as ‘the law of the universe’ and other metaphysical topics.  Some people even tell of studying subjects that defy description because they have no earthly counterpart.”

The accounts also reveal that between lives we meet with a group, or board, of between three and seven spiritually advanced beings.  Those who recall their encounter with this board say that these wise ones prepared them for the tasks ahead in their next life.  Dr. Whitton’s subjects reported that these beings are “highly advanced spiritually and may even have completed their cycle of earthly incarnation.”  They say that these beings intuitively know everything about those who come to them and “their role is to assist (them) in evaluating the life that has just passed and, eventually, to make recommendation concerning the next incarnation.”

In some spiritual traditions, this board known as the Karmic Board, a group of advanced beings who adjudicate karma, mercy and judgement on behalf of every soul.  After each embodiment, our soul meets with the Karmic Board to review our progress in that life.  Before we take incarnation again, we pass before this board to receive our assignment and karmic allotment.  We are shown what family we will be born into and why, where we had difficulties in the past, who we have to settle accounts with and how we can take advantage of new opportunities to make spiritual progress.  In essence, we review the plan for our upcoming life.

in Life Between Life, Whitton and Fisher say that this life plan, which they call our “karmic script,” involves what our soul needs, not necessarily what it wants.  “The karmic script often calls for renewed involvement with people who have figured pleasantly or unpleasantly, in previous incarnations,” they write.  “In the words of one who felt compelled to make compensation to others:  ‘There are people I didn’t treat too well in my last life, and I have to go back to the Earth plane again and work off that debt.  This time, if they hurt me in return, I’m going to forgive them because all I really want to do is to go back home.  This is home'”

Another of Dr. Whitton’s subjects groaned, “Oh no–not her again!”  when his spiritual advisers notified him that “his personal evolution would be best served by being reborn to a woman he had murdered in a previous life.”

After hearing of Elizabeth Clare Prophet’s presentation that talked about the soul’s experience before life, a woman wrote to tell her about a prebirth memory she had had many years earlier.  She recalled being escorted by her Higher Self into a room that looked like a long hall.  Men and women dressed in long robes were sitting at a table off to the right side of the room.  “I remember standing before the man at the middle of the table.  He had shoulder-length white hair and a white beard that touched the middle of his chest,” she wrote.

“There was a gentle presence about him that helped me relax as he read my assignments for this life from the parchment he held in his hands.  I was a very excited little girl–I could hardly wait to get started…I left the room with my guide, and as I walked into a beautiful garden I began to sense that my mission might not be so easy.  Uncertainties began to fill my mind.  We sat down on a stone bench, which was surrounded by beautiful roses and flowers of all colors.  I sat in deep contemplation, knowing that it would be only moments before I would be born to my current mother.”

“I knew I was coming to help and support her, but I also had something very important to attend to when I became old enough.  I turned to my guide with a concerned expression and asked, “Will I lose what I have gained?’  He clasped my hands gently in his own and said, “It is up to you.'”

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough
    time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
