My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
I have had a couple of experiences when people close to me have died, and then I could feel their spiritual self VERY STRONGLY for a couple of days, almost as if they were physically in the room with me. I could sense, hear, and interact with them as if they had physical form, but they did not. I knew they were dead, but they still seemed to have a physical presence - their essence was that strong. Their spiritual presence lasted a few days, and then it was gone. In fact, it was right after their funeral when I stopped feeling them around me.
When my former father-in-law died, I could feel his spirit around me VERY STRONGLY for several days. His presence and essence was of such that I knew he was right beside me. I could not physically see him, but I did feel and hear him. I could hear his wonder and amazement of what was going on now that he did not have a physical body. He even came to one of my Qigong medical treatments, saying, "I want to see what this Qigong thing is all about. I've heard about it, but now want to see it." And so he watched and observed a treatment I gave a patient. But then, at the end of the treatment, he secretly delivered a message to my patient and asked her to tell me what he had shared with her. I was surprised that he could chat to someone in the same room as myself, and me not know it was going on. This confirmed what John UK had once shared; there are different layers so you don't see another person or event, even though you are on the same astral plane.
Then recently, my Qigong teacher died. After her death, she also came to visit me. While I was sipping tea, I suddenly felt her presence in the living room, I looked up and "saw her" and then heard her voice; “So this is where you live, huh?” “Is that green tea you’re drinking? Aren’t you going to offer me any?" And then she laughed as if she just told a funny joke. I could sense her; I could see her, and I could hear her. I knew she was not physically present, but she felt VERY present and her energy was VERY STRONG. She seemed very much the same as how I knew her. For a few days, she would come and go, then, just like the experience with my former father-in-law, after her funeral, I could no longer feel her presence.
Both of these experiences led me to believe that shortly after death, the essence of the physical self is still very much a part of who the person and they stay close to us on the physical plane. But then, over a few days, that physical presence or projection changes, or the energy dies down, and they become more like a "soft whisper," more "translucent," and more like pure energy. My assumption is they no longer need to put energy into what they had been. They have progressed & transitioned.
