During my years as a working medium I have been asked many questions about what it is like when our spirit leaves our body and go to what is known as the spirit world. I myself have asked these questions.
Many years ago my father came to me from spirit and took me to a place where souls that had recently passed arrived after the journey through the tunnel of light. It was interesting to see what happened as they exited those tunnels. Some were confused; others did not even realize that they had passed. They did not recognize where they were. There were people there from every walk of life. The most amazing thing for me, whatever misdeeds they had done, they were not discriminated against. They were met with the same loving, warm and welcoming embrace. Loved ones and friends were there waiting to greet them. Children that had passed at a tender age were there to greet a parent. It could be likened to waiting for someone arriving at an airport or a railway station; that moment of joy of being reunited again.
As I witnessed that spectacle it brought tears to my eyes, tears of joy. Then my father turned to me and said:
– This is the joy that you gave to me all those years ago when I came to you in a dream and told you how to find me. Even though you had not had any contact with me from a very early age, you used the information I gave you. You did not have much to go on, but as a result of that you were eventually able to drive that road that took you to Essex, north of London, where you met brothers and sisters you did not even know you had. I listened to you all that day when you met for the first time. It was amazing! All my children were together. When you listened to me and reached out your hand we were able to make contact with one another again. I could not be a father to you in this life, but when I got to the spirit world I realized my mistake. I should have given you more time when I was in life. That is why I have tried to be a parent to you from the spirit world; giving you guidance and love when I have realized your need. In so doing I have been able to redeem myself for the responsibility I did not face as your father.
– I wanted to bring you here today, to show you how it was like for me when I came out of the tunnel and walked into the light. My heart opened automatically. After a while I realized all the unfinished things that were left behind. Whatever way a person has lived their life, when they come into the light the process of self-realization starts and they become aware of how their conduct affected others. I began to hear the voices of my children that came to adulthood without a positive role of a father figure. Thank you Terry for listening to me in that dream, you used the information I gave you to track me down and you also found your brothers and sisters. That meeting gave them closure, as it gave you and I a new beginning. It gave us a new possibility to be together and let go of old sorrows and disappointments.”
Today I remember the many happy meetings I have had with my father since that day. I do not always see him, I do not always feel him, but he is never far away.
To all of you that have so many questions I can say this: Whoever you are, when you arrive at that place of light, whatever misconduct or misdemeanours you are guilty of, you will be embraced with a warmth that is unconditional, which will help you reach self-realization. Then it is possible for us to clearly see in which way we conducted our lives. We are given the opportunity of reconciliation without judgment, but there is no escape from what effect we had on those around us, that we must face. With love, patience and respect we can then forgive ourselves.
What I describe in this text is based on my own experiences. I do not profess to have all the answers about what happens when we pass over.
