Hello everyone, on Thursday I received a text from one of my bloggers Lincoln. All who are regulars here on Embracing Spirituality, whether they comment or not, are familiar with our Lincoln. The text was that a young lady of which he was her coach, and father figure to, had died in a automobile accident. I felt Lincoln’s sadness and pain through his text, her sudden death had an impact on him. I wanted to let him understand that the crucial thing to do now was to go into some serious prayers for her and to light a white candle for her in assisting her to go on her journey. I wanted to tell him that it will take forty five days for her to get to Judgement hall, but first she had to make it across the river. I wanted to tell him, to pray that she gets to the river, that she go along with her group, instead of backing away and trying to get home (her earthly home) seeing that her passing was sudden and tragic. Most often when they go suddenly, and they realize that they are suddenly jolted out of their physical vehicles, they cannot accept it, and may want to find their way home, often staying behind or running away from the group who came to take them across the river (sometimes very rough) which everyone must pass. Some more advanced spirits will pass through fire, but this is rare, very rare.
As Lincoln texted me, grieving over the passing of this young lady, I wanted to tell him that she did not die. she has gone on to the next phase of her existence. I wanted to tell him, pray that she ‘goes with her guides, because she may want to run home, not wanting to believe that she cannot get back inside of her body. I wanted to let him know that she may have chosen to go that way, the choice made way before she was born. I wanted to tell him that she had accomplished a lot just from being born here in this world, where so many souls want to visit (many spirits want to experience earth because it is an advanced school room, this has to do with nature, but many forget their mission due to being caught up with the material world, which is here to throw them off balance, and so they fail their mission, many having to apply to come back again), and some do by being born and leaving right away, there at the birthing table. I wanted to teach him about death and the process, and what the living need to do in assisting those who have left. Assisting them through prayers, songs, and encouragement, as the first forty five days are the rough once, unless it is an enlightened being, who came to the world as a volunteer (and actually completed their mission), for them the journey is not harsh, and their passage is easier.
He told me that he wanted to tell everyone he met that day, that he loved them, after hearing the news and while he grieved, and I understood what he meant, he was suddenly faced with the reality of death, as it is perceived within our world. It was the final curtain call (to the human mind) and therefore the end of that person’s life as everyone knew it. However to the enlightened, death, was not daunting, dreary, sad, and in no way final. To the enlightened, death was advancement, light, consciousness beyond belief, it was a journey to another existence, where all possibilities lies, and true living began. Death was not final at all, but a brilliance of colors and clear insight into other worlds, that were to be explored, it was true freedom, to the enlightened, death does not exist. However the human body is made to experience emotions, so grief of someones passing is expected and often times uncontrollable. It is only in the earth realm that Humans die, no other realm, experience death, and this is because no other world wears the human suit, none. In the other worlds, we can materialize as how we are able to exist there, but the denseness of the human body are not allowed beyond the fifth dimension (and here you can materialize in form only, not actually having the body). I will teach this in OMOU class one day.
I implore everyone who may read this post today, please pray for Joneah (the young lady who passed, she was fourteen years old, next week would have been her birthday), this is the name he provided to me upon request. Pray that she go on to her next life peacefully with her group and not become earthbound or wayward. Please mention her name, it matters not if you knew her or not. Lincoln our brother knew her and he is one of us, please also remember him in your prayers. Pray that the burden of grief be lifted up from his shoulders and enter the water, where it will be swept away. There was a young man who was the driver of the car that crashed, he was in critical condition, he is now stable, please also pray for his full recovery, perhaps Lincoln will provide his name for us. Human beings write their life and the day they will die, and how, before coming to this world. Some will only want to spend a little time. Often times they will tell their Egbe that they will soon return, and on the day they promised the Egbe will come for them. We did some initiations to Egbe for some people who wanted to leave according to their destiny book, (which came down through the sacred Odu Ifa). The initiations broke the contract and made a new one, so that they are able to stay. Let us pray for her family, may they have the strength to deal with their loss, but that they continue their journey in good health, never forgetting to call this young lady’s name daily in her prayers so that light will always be with her.
Bloggers remember Joneah, the young driver now in stable condition, the families of both and for Lincoln. Iron sharpeneth Iron, and the countenance of one brightens the other.
Pray that Joneah go on to her next life, this is important, she must not become earthbound.
Remember to tell someone you love them today, tomorrow, and always.
I love you all
