The Hereafter ... What If? - Part One

This is a topic that's a radical departure from boondocking and rv'ing. But in reality, it touches all of us since, as each one of us is born, each one of us will eventually face death. A statistical certainty. I had chosen to think about it some 35 years ago first by reading "On Death and Dying" by Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, and later when I went to a talk given by the author in Montreal to further look into it. Since then, I avidly read a great many accounts of people who had actually died and been brought back from either death or the brink of death. Boondocking in remote areas and wild places often fosters such pondering and research. Not out of morbid fascination, but out of concern that one is closer to the end than to the beginning. I've always believed in being ready. And I'm coming to what prompted this post.

Sadly, a few weeks ago, a friend's son met with a tragic death at his own hands at the age of 46. Understandably, a great many people were distraught and wondering: what's awaiting him ... total annihilation of his essence ... eternal condemnation ... or what? In the face of this momentous event, everyone had more questions than answers. And it tempted me to seek answers ... but I refrained.

There is one "occupation" that I failed to mention in my profile. And here, I'll gladly excuse anyone who might be turned off by such a topic. Neither will I entertain challenges, or efforts at refuting experiences that for me, were as real as the first diaper that I wore or the last meal that I ate. Here goes ... and again, this is the time for those who might be turned off from following me further to graciously exit without further comments. For a number of years, I was a medium. It began with spontaneous images at a time when I'd faced tragic events in my life. A huge unexpected development for a self-confessed and confirmed atheist for over 20 years, to say the least! Then, it blossomed some months after I'd begun to study astrology, as if a door to other portals of understanding had been opened. I'll get to this in later posts if there is any interest. So I DO need feedback, or I'll restrict myself to boondocking and the more mundane aspects of life at retirement.

However, be that as it may, I no longer want to tap into information from this other dimension as it depletes me of too much energy. But for the sake of clearing some misconceptions, let me state this; a medium is not someone's attempt at bewildering gullible clients with some hocus-pocus speculations. At least it never was for me. Neither is it cold-reading. For one thing, never was I interested in such endeavours, Furthermore, I have never charged a penny for consultation by anyone. Neither did I advertise this nor seek it; it simply happened when someone in my entourage needed help or it would help a bona-fide client with his/her astrological chart. Also, it was always a spontaneous and totally unexpected "capsule of knowledge" that would always serve someone other than me.

So, in a nutshell, I have come accept that, to the metaphysical known but as yet unproven, my life is but a drop in a bucket full of former lives and others to come. At death, all that is sloughed off is a physical body that no longer serves its purpose. If anyone is interested in my experiences, investigations, speculations, and conclusions, please let me know. Particularly if you might want to share some of your own experiences or questions, or speculations. or whatever. I may start another blog based on the subject of a human being being far more than meets the (physical) eye.

I'd also welcome suggestions as to the name of a new blog. Welcome all.

I'd be very interested in what you have to say on this subject, and also any experiences you've had. I find stories like these very interesting.

I've had my chart read a couple of times, one was right on - she told me about some things that just didn't make any sense. But they happened, and I sure would have bet against it.

I also had a woman, I don't know what she was - some sort of Medium I suppose. She was able to call upon others who I guess had died, and they gave her some information to answer some questions I had. Again, she had a very strange story to tell me about my past, and years later it all made sense.

I've had other readings, etc. that were merely entertaining, but those two were very real and I think the women did have powers most of us do not.

I don't have any talents in that area, but do believe if we let ourselves be more open to things, we might experience more of it.

Sorry, I can't think of any good new blog names.

Have you ever watched 'Last Lecture' by Randy Pausch? Death is no more than death.

My favorite last words:

"Friends applaud, the comedy is finished."
By Beethoven

Anyway I admire your courage. I wish I would see you someday at Tequisquiapan.

I would love to hear more from you on this subject. How about "Metaphysical Musings" for a title?

Wow, you are the fourth solo woman RVer I've known who has now disclosed this type of thing!

I don't write about it on my blog, at all, but my psychological healing was born out of a spiritual experience.

I am (newly) fascinated by the topic.

Kudos to you for having the courage to post this.

Jennifer
