Where Do We Go When We Die?

Is Heaven some imaginary, far off place to which we travel when we pass from this earthly realm? Not at all. In fact, call it what you like: the afterlife, the non-physical world, the other side … Heaven is much closer than you think.

Understanding where we go when we die is easier when thinking in terms of signals instead of souls with bodies. Every soul has an energetic signature – the aura – that is uniquely its own. This signal is high or low depending upon the level of consciousness attained. While in human form, one’s thoughts, memories, and actions become recorded within the aura, resulting in an average vibratory frequency. I liken this signal to a personal “ringtone.” (It’s an interesting exercise to imagine what your ringtone would sound like to others: sweet and harmonious or off-key and dissonant.)

In our high-tech world, there are countless electromagnetic signals around us, but they are of such a high frequency that the human brain cannot perceive them. Instead, we need specifically tuned instruments like televisions and radios to detect the signals that buzz by us undetected.

A cellphone is another instrument that receives and transmits electromagnetic signals. What happens if you are in the middle of a call and you drop your phone, breaking it into pieces? The caller may still be talking, but you can no longer hear their voice. It’s critical to the point of this discussion to ask the question, “Where did the signal go?”
Clearly, the signal didn’t go anywhere. It is still in the airwaves around you even though the instrument that was used to receive that signal no longer functions.

Let’s apply this logic now to the transition we call death. What happens if a human being is in an accident and their physical body ceases to function? Without the ability to display the soul’s ringtone, where does its signal go?

The answer is simple: It doesn’t go anywhere. Spirit is no more confined to the body than a voice is confined to a cell phone. You may not be able to see the soul’s light when the physical body dies, but it’s still there.

Whether here or in the hereafter, where you place your awareness determines your reality. Heaven is not a place, but a state of consciousness. Without the body keeping you trapped in the illusion of separation, the real you reawakens to your true nature and you find yourself Home at last.

How do I know these things? I am an evidence-based medium. I served a full career as a U.S. Navy officer prior to discovering my ability to communicate with those who have passed. Because of my left-brained background, I used to have trouble believing stories about spirits reading, playing, and working in Heaven.

Only when questioned by one of the world’s top Near Death Experience experts, Dr. Kenneth Ring, did I set my skeptic’s mind aside and ask the spirits, themselves, what Heaven is like. Their answer came as a detailed download through me directed to Dr. Ring. The bottom line? Heaven is real, and our actions in this world determine our experiences in the next. Having interviewed thousands of near-death experiencers, Dr. Ring claimed that he had never read a more astonishing document.

Until we transition and are greeted by those who have passed before us, it’s easy to imagine Heaven as a far-off geographical place. In fact, those in spirit tell us that their world interpenetrates our own, but the two realities are vibrationally out of phase.
I know that the souls who abide in that reality are not dead and gone. We may not yet have the technology to detect their higher frequencies, but just like cell phone signals that we can’t perceive with our physical senses, does that mean they aren’t there?

It means a great deal to those in Heaven when we acknowledge their presence, so talk to them. They hear you. They are very much alive, and their world is as close as your breath.
