    I agree with you 100% I find your arguments very intriguing as they present long held beliefs that I share with many others of this world both past and present in a very well thought out package for the modern mind. I too have had the anesthesia experience and also found it very unsettling. still I believe our consciousness journeys on and how we form our beliefs and opinions on the afterlife are extremely important due to this. Thank you for your patient and understanding approach please keep the articles coming they are of great bennifit to the world! Jon

    Interesting article! I also believe consciousness remains after death. That is the Egun sector in Aborisha practice. It is thesame all over the world. It is not difficult to come to terms with this. King Saul in the Bible contacted Prophet Samuel after that one’s death. I have read a story of a dying man mentioning the names of dead relatives and he mentioned the name of someone who died recently whose death was not reported to him so as not to sadden him! Theology needs to be expanded and studied. The magic is exciting. Magicians can teleport (Egbe), levitate or use Afeeri invisibility. If you can do that, you understand life after death!

    What happens after death is clear, you come back again if you are needed on Earth otherwise, you stay home. Heaven is home.

    I believe I will return to consciousness that is Serene. There will be cosmic colors, heavenly angels, family portraits, and and transforming stages in my journey appearing like a dream. I will hear a voice that says, “You made it, there are no tricks, no harm, and no weapons will prosper against you. Even if they attempt to rise, Divine Love will block and protect you. You’re safe, and you may stay, and rest in heaven. When the time is right, you will return to experience life and truth again, and Divine Love will be with you always, you will overcome, as always, and return home safely, as always. Now rest, my child.”

    As for me, I believe ‘Man’ is a spirit being, having a soul and living in a physical body. Death simply seperates the spirit from the body hence the soul is what ignites the afterlife consciousness based on what kind of life one has lived while existing in the bodily form.
    In all of these however, I believe an overall Judge exists-(God), who enforces this aforementioned order- for such arrangement couldn’t have been abinitio if not backed up with a supernatural force. Hence, this Judge has a role of judgement to play for every spirit being with respect to good or evil.
    How He will assess good or evil I don’t know, what parameters He’ll use I don’t know… but I am sure every spirit will reckon for the bodily existence.
    The aftermath of the reckoning will determine what happens next. While some will be happily rewarded, some will be happily unhappily rewarded.
    For life will be too vain and silly if these post life experiences does not exist.
    Even though the limitations of our mortality may not allow us to be able to prove this afterlife ‘school of thought’ beyond reasonable doubt, It does not eradicate its validity as well.

      Please accept my apologies for my late reply. As you can imagine, since returning from Nigeria with Malaria, I got behind on my work, and I’ve been working none stop getting up to speed. Good news is that I’m finally caught up.

      Keep an eye to an email I’ll be sending out sometime this week…

      I’m holding a FREE workshop I know you will not want to miss.
