What Happens After We Die: Part One

 In Uncategorized

Death is often a taboo topic. To think of the end of one’s own life requires surrendering everything we’ve known to be certain, and that can be terrifying. What happens? Where do we go? Will we cease to exist? These are all common questions that people want to know regarding the inevitable process known as death.

Once again, my insights are gleaned from thirty years of seeing subtle energy fields, and fourteen years on the streets as a paramedic. Even so, this is only my perspective, not gospel. Please take what resonates with you and discard whatever doesn’t.

I have witnessed the death of many people in many ways – from long, painful, and drawn out disease processes to shockingly abrupt traumas. I myself experienced a near death experience in my twenties. So, what happens when we die? Do we all go down a tunnel? Is there always a white light? Not necessarily. What I’ve found is that each individual’s death process is unique. Some people are ready and even eager to die, while others experience shock, confusion, and an unwillingness to let go.

While there is no ‘one size fits all’ protocol and there are infinite ways to experience death, I have witnessed commonalities in the format of the soul’s experience post mortem.

In Part One of this blog, we focus on what happens during and after a medical/expected death, while in Part Two we’ll cover the traumatic death experience and beyond.

Part One:

In the Medical/Expected Death:

As the physical body shuts down, the ego ~ which is designed to create the construct of this reality through the five senses ~ begins dissolving to allow higher levels of energetic awareness. This often looks to the dying individual like deceased loved one, guides, or angels entering the room and is often accompanied by a sensation of floating above their body. The dying person might also have the experience of traveling outside of the room and seeing friends and loved ones in multiple locations simultaneously.

As respirations and pulse cease and person is clinically dead, the dying person’s awareness often travels up through the midbrain and out the crown of the head. This experience typically presents like a long tunnel with a light at the end of it…

Not every soul will experience this, and that’s okay! Some people’s souls exit through their chest (heart chakra) which looks more like expanding peacefully beyond the body, while some are traumatically jarred out – which will be addressed in Part Two.


After death, we feel pretty much the same as we always have – just lighter and pain-free because we don’t have a body. Think of it like taking off a heavy coat; who we are, what we like and don’t like, our memories and experiences all stay with us. We are still a thread of consciousness – it’s just that our external experiences have changed. We are no longer limited by gravity or the confines of a body.

After the tunnel or whatever ejection route was experienced, we are often greeted and comforted by loved ones, pets, and figures from any religion or belief system that we had during our lives. Christians often see Jesus/Mary, Buddhists the Buddha, Muslims, Allah etc… We tend to hang out here for a while before experiencing the ‘Life Review.’

The Life Review experience is cool in that we get to watch every moment and relive every thought/emotion/experience of our lives… but that can come with a flip side. While the whole experience is compressed and happens much faster than human years, we see and feel how every word, action, and choice we ever made impacted ourselves and every other person that we ever came into contact with. We also see the fullest extent of consequence around how we treated other living beings and the planet. This might be fun for some people, and for others it might be… excruciating.

The end of life ‘reunion’ and Life Review can both take a while… but allow me introduce a mind bender: Beyond this realm, time doesn’t exist in the way we know it here. What may take years here could take just a few seconds there – or vice versa. Everything is relative, and to my understanding has to do with vibration. In order for us to return to higher levels of Conscious Awareness beyond death, our soul’s vibrational capacity must be realigned. {The Life Review prepares us for higher frequency awareness by allowing us to experience the fullest magnitude of our individual life and soul capacity.} More in Part Two.

So let’s cut to the chase:

What happens when we die? Our thread of Consciousness continues on.
Will we cease to exist? Yes as an individual body and no as Conscious Awareness
Will we be alone? No. We are never alone. Source energy, friends, loved ones, pets, and religious figures will be there to help our integration.

There’s more… so much more… but that’s all for this week. I’ll see you next week to conclude this conversation!
