Where are they?

"When people die, where do their souls go?" This is a frequent question from clients. Over the years, I have developed a sense of this from my conversations with those in Spirit and from my own spiritual unfoldment. Here are some of my thoughts about it.

As a person's soul releases from the physical body, it continues existence in the next spiritual plane. Rather than Heaven and Hell being physical places with exact physical locations (such as up & down), I believe these are states of consciousness.

Whatever state of spiritual consciousness a person had when they were on the earth plane, they take with them. And they learn and grow from that consciousness.

I also believe that the door to reformation is never closed. Spiritual progression is eternal and infinite, so it takes however long it needs to take. [It's not as if they only have six months to graduate or they get kicked out. *smile*] They go through life review and they take a good look at what they did when they were on the earth plane (the good, the bad, the otherwise). For some, life review takes a while. For others, life review is fast.

Souls also learn more about their connection with the Divine and gain spiritual understanding. Some folks learn about healing; some learn to let go of resentments and fears. They 'recover' from physical, emotional, and mental illness by consciously evolving spiritually.

Most souls learn to communicate with their loved ones on the earth plane. They recognize the energy signatures of their family and friends and shift their vibrational frequency to achieve spirit contact in readings and visitations.

Although they are evolving, those in Spirit usually keep a lot of their personality, many of their opinions, and their love for their family and friends. They share that in mediumship readings with me when I focus on connecting with what I call the Essence of a Spirit. Occasionally, clients report visitations from their spirit loved ones, either in dreams or during their waking hours. Visitations and/or readings can be healing experiences to make amends and assist them in their spiritual evolution.

Many spirits experience reunion with their loved ones who have already crossed. This is achieved by resonating at the same vibrational frequency. And this is usually dependent on both parties mutually desiring reconnection.

One of the best descriptions of progression after passing and example of the states of consciousness of the spiritual plane (that I have found so far) is presented in the movie 'What Dreams May Come'. In this film, a family deals with death and meeting with/recognizing each other after crossing. Each person creates their own reality and space. They pursue their own spiritual paths and activities with the help of guides, angels, and loved ones.

In fact, those in spirit are engaged in so many pursuits, that the list seems infinite. I get lost in the endless quantum physics of it all. Suffice it to say, I have met many spirits who are quite happily probing the secrets of the earth plane and investigating those of the spirit world.

By now I'm sure you realize, "Where are they?" is a multi-faceted question with many answers. As you expand your spiritual awareness, you may have confirmation of that written above. Or you may have other experiences. As always, seek the answers with your own soul. Perhaps we need to answer this question first "Where are we?"

How many times do we "feel" a presence or "hear" a familiar voice, or see a "shadow" out of the corner of our eye, not to be afraid but to be filled with a comfort like your favorite slippers. I feel we are surrounded by loved ones whenever we open ourselves, or need them. There is a Higher Place a Heaven where souls commune and become enlightened themselves. Wonderful post as always. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P

Q & A: Will our session be a conversation with spirit loved ones?

Q: What happens during a mediumship reading? Will it be a conversation between me and my spirit loved ones? A: Each reading is unique, so I never know what to expect during a reading. As a medium, I open myself with the highest and best intention to receive information from your spirit loved ones. Once we establish contact with a spirit loved one and have established their identity, we can engage them in conversation and ask them questions. Many times, a reading is an opportunity to chat with your family and extended family and maybe a few of your closest friends. It can be a special time for reunion and a sharing of memories. It can be a chance to say "hello" or "I'll see you again" or "I love you". Perhaps it will be a time for making amends and apologies. Or it can be an opportunity for closure and explanation. Or it can a time to receive guidance and opinions from those you trust in Spirit. Or it can be a confirmation of your own experiences with s

Your job during a mediumship reading

If you are the person who is receiving a mediumship reading and desiring spirit contact, you have a very important job --- CONFIRMATION. This means confirmation either by your own personal knowledge or thru the personal knowledge of another person known to the spirit. During the course of the mediumship reading, you can confirm the information that you know to be true. And some information may require validation after the reading with friends or other family members who are privy to this certain info. Here are some examples of ways in which a spirit may try to validate who they are: The spirit's personality traits or physical characteristics may be described. This is part of what I call the Essence of Spirit . Most spirits are willing to share how they passed with the medium. Sometimes the spirit will give names very clearly or just the initial. Often spirits will give important dates of reference to further validate themselves. They have been known to mention other family members,

Timeframe for spirit contact

Q: My mom just died unexpectedly last week. Is it too soon for me to try to make contact with her through you? I vaguely remember someone telling me that they're not "available" right after they pass? Is there a general timeframe? Please let me know. Thank you. A: There is no official wait time before establishing communication with a spirit loved one. I have noticed some spirits are ready to communicate immediately and other spirits take longer. Some mediums suggest a six month time period. I feel this is a good timeframe for many clients because by then they have processed some of their grief and are not in a desperate space. There is a difference between being ready and being needy. It just depends on the client and the spirit. Trust your own soul regarding this. When you are ready, you just know. What a blessing it is that you know you will connect with your mother's spirit in divine right timing and that love never dies. If you have a general question whose answ
