Who Decides if We Return to Physical Reality After a Near Death Experience?

This post answers a very interesting question from a reader named, Darla, who publishes the entertaining and insightful blog, She’s A Maineiac. Darla says, Over the years I’ve read and heard about hundreds of near-death experiences (NDEs). Some of these people who’ve had an NDE say when they’re on the other side a voice gives them an option to stay in spirit or go back to their life on Earth. Others who’ve had an NDE say they beg to stay in such a blissful place full of love, but were “forced” to come back to their life on Earth and suddenly end up back in their physical bodies. Darla asks, How much free will do we have once we cross over to spirit?

The Council says you always have free will. Bob asks The Council how they explain the people who wanted to remain in a blissful place full of love, but were forced to come back to their life on Earth.

The Council says when you’re in the process of crossing over to spirit, this voice you hear giving you the option to stay or come back to Earth is the voice of your higher self, but you as a human being are still in the personality of the life you’re living on Earth. You prefer to stay in spirit because it feels so wonderful. But your higher self knows what you planned for your life, and what needs to be accomplished, and how you set that up to go through whatever you’re going through. This is the reason some people are told by their higher self they have to go back to Earth.

The Council says the higher self and the personality self are the same being. These people who say, I was forced to come back into my body and continue my life on Earth, this was the voice of their higher self who knew everything they had planned, and knew it was time to return to physical life so they could achieve that plan. You still have free will. The part of you that is your higher self is telling the part of you that remains in physical reality to return to that reality because dying right now isn’t what you planned for this life.

When The Council asks Bob if he understands what they’re saying, he attempts to clarify. Bob says when Darla asks how much free will we have once we cross over to spiritual reality, The Council is saying that the aspect of ourself that’s our higher self has free will, but to the aspect of ourselves that remains in our personality, it may seem that this part doesn’t have the free will that our higher self has. The Council says this is correct. Your higher self and your personality self are two aspects of the same entity.

Darla asks who is ultimately in charge of whether we come back to life on Earth or not. Bob responds by saying The Council already said the higher self is in charge. The Council adds that so many people separate their higher self from who they are, like when they perceive the higher self is telling them they have to do this or that. But your higher self is you. No one else is forcing you to do something you don’t want to do. No one else is making the decision to return to physical reality. Your higher self knows the whole plan you have for your current life on Earth. When your higher self tells you that you have to return to physical reality, it’s because that’s what you wanted.

Darla asks if it’s our higher self, or a guide, or God that makes this decision about whether we return to physical reality or not. The Council says it’s your higher self. You make all the decisions.

The Council suggests everyone think about what they’re saying here and try to understand it. Meditate on it and you’ll get more information about it.

What is My Life Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Lisa, after she read our post, Feeling Like I Want to Go Home Even When I Am Home. Lisa says she’s also had a strong longing to go home recently. She’s a strong empath and sometimes the emotion and struggle that people feel during this Covid pandemic leave her blindsided.

Lisa says she had a near-death experience when she was 17 years old, but I decided to fight to come back into her physical body. Since then I’ve always felt everything in my life is temporary. I find it difficult to commit to relationships or jobs. The Council says it wasn’t so much of a fight as a decision to come back. They add that everything in everyone’s life is really temporary and this is fear you’re picking up from other places.

When you’re an empath and you don’t meditate and work within the light to protect yourself, you’ll pick up so many feelings that aren’t your own. As a result you cut yourself off from connections to others, jobs, family, and there’s a feeling of being lost. It’s very important for empaths to meditate, to walk in nature and go barefoot when possible, to sit under trees, to have a garden or have plants in your home. Plants will ground you and make you more capable of handling what goes on around you.

Empaths are so wide open that you can go into a room and feel very uncomfortable. You might think there’s something wrong with you and that you’re not very sociable. There’s an uncomfortable feeling you’re not aware of that you’re picking up from people in that room. If someone is angry or not feeling well, you’ll pick up all these emotions. If there are ten people in a room, you’ll pick up ten different feelings. You won’t realize it consciously, but there’s a feeling of not being yourself and wanting to withdraw. Many empaths need a lot of time for themselves and to be by themselves.

When you get out of bed each morning try imagining there’s beautiful white light coming from spirit and wrap it around you like you’re in a cocoon of white light. This will protect you from picking up all these unwanted feelings from other people. You can walk down the street and be fine and then all of a sudden you’re feeling angry or in a bad mood because you’ve passed by someone on the street and you’ve picked up their feelings. If you’re sitting and talking to someone you need to learn how to say to yourself that you’re going to consciously check out where their emotions are at. Do they really mean what they’re saying? Are they in a good place or not? What is their intention? You can do this when you want to tune in to other people’s feelings, but you need to learn how to protect yourself in order to work with these feelings.

Lisa says she’s 44 years old and worried she’ll never fulfill the reason she came back into her body from the NDE all those years ago. The Council says you came back to learn how to be in this reality, to learn about other people and how they feel. When you know how people really feel you can talk to them and help them get to a better place without their necessarily realizing this is what you’re doing. This is one of the things you wanted to do in this lifetime, to help people feel better, but you have to put yourself in a better place before you can do this.

Lisa says a friend has reassured her that she’s a loving and warm person that makes a difference to people in her life and this might be all she’s here to do. The Council says that by saying this is all you’re here to do, you’ve got no idea the job you’ve signed up for. This is a wonderful path you’ve chosen. If you just go around in your lifetime and help people feel better, you’ve accomplished more than you can imagine. And when you return to spirit we’ll show you what you accomplished.

Listen to the 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Lisa and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question in a Comment box at the bottom of most blog pages.
