Meditation

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

Hi Deepak, I've been practicing meditation for quite a while, as a result of this practice a range of abilities have emerged including telepathy. I've noticed that the skill required to connect with people telepathically is the same as the skill required to connect with people who have passed on, who are dead for want of a better word.

The process is the same, connecting with their consciousness. Telepathy with living people can, therefore, be considered a means of sharpening one's skill for communicating with the dead. Having connected with a number of dead relatives, I have noticed that while all seemed perfectly happy none were aware that they were dead. They seemed to be in a kind of dream like state and completely unaware of their present condition of free-floating consciousness. Does this correspond to your experience? Do you think there are different states of consciousness after death for different people?

Response:

Your point about communicating with individuals telepathically whether they are embodied or not makes sense to me. The evolution of consciousness is a continuum whether one is in a physical body or not. But I think your interpretation that those who have died don’t know they are dead may be a little off. I know that is an idea that has been played with in a number of movies lately, but the death event is a big deal in the course of one’s life. What you may be picking up on is fact that those souls without bodies are still aware and thinking and communicating and therefore their real life has not ceased, so they do not see themselves as dead, only without physical bodies.

The other factor is that whereas most souls after death will shift their attention away from earthly concerns on to the next phase of their spiritual evolution. Those that you are more likely to communicate with are those who haven’t redirected their focus away from the physical dimension and therefore they are ignoring the obvious point of their lack of a physical body.

Love,
Deepak

  • Some religions have also referred to this state as Limbo. Some would also say the phenomenon of Ghosts are those souls that have become stuck, spiritualy & haven`t passed to the higher realms. Whatever the explanations all point to an evolving episode of individual & collective journey in awareness.

  • well if you can communicate with them help them realize that they are passing over. maybe you have the talent to help them. I still need to learn how to communicate with human alive. so it will be a whole extra work if the others comes around. I do know people who have the ability to see them.and help them to pass over. but you are free to choise not to take that job. or to take it if it makes you happy. you use the potentiality you have as a gift you can use.

  • Yes,we are many spirits because of reincarnation.

  • How do WE ourselves know that we are not already dead? If there are that many `proven`spirits walking around and going about thinking they are still living who is to say that we too are not one of them!!!

  • I am so happy,that my husband ignores this next step.Knowing him, He dont trust this higher realms.Neither do I. We are perfectly happy here. He also is still above ground.(Mausoleum).We communicate face to face. PS. I consider this as another coping with grief. I`m aware,that some people call this mentally not O.K.But I happily ignore it.

  • That`s true.After my husband died,I had a dream.He was standing right before me und I screamed:You are alive,you are alive and hugged him.I will never forget his face und saying: Was is the matter with you? He coud`nt understand.Also he walked back right in to the house.Wonderful,he is with me.

  • after being exposed to several "psychics" who turned out to be frauds, I have a real problem with this post. In my time of meditation, I have never seen or communicated with any of my dead loved ones. My mom just died and before that she had two experiences of death, the white tunnel. In each experience she said that she knew she was leaving this realm and going to some place of "deep peace". Both times, she was greated by my grandfather who told her it wasnt her time yet. I feel confident that mom is at peace and knows that she isnt here any longer. I expect more from a Deepak post, and am confused.

  • The Archangels, through an angel interpreter, did tell me that both my Mother and my best friend were very busy "doing their work", but they were also watching out for me. I had the sense that they had simply moved to a new location, but other than that, not much had changed.

  • these are some pretty wacky responses... but I have found that after people passed over there is an immediate response that they want to insist that they`re still here. I think that proves that the veil between the worlds is truly very thin or even invisible or nonexistent. And I can tell you there`s no fear.

  • Or maybe ur communications with someone or some people who are alive but in zombie state, ur probably connecting eith their subconscious.

  • My parents died within 30 days of each other...dreams of reconciliation...tests with afterlife produced some results like they moved a branch on a tree when asked...but it is still unknown if the aferlife exists or we imagine it?...nevertheless, we live as if an afterlife exists and this adds texture to our present life!

  • I can relate to this. I used to think alot about my opah in Germany. Although I never really knew the man I felt his presence alot growing up. The man had a good heart and was just very curious about what his daughters children were like growing up in America. I truly believe this do I can relate.

  • I call bullshit, sorry. You are not talking to dead relatives; you`re talking to your own mind.

  • when i communed with my mother i don`t think she was any type of form that would define death in human terms she was just a loving energy so i guess no - she didnt know because she wasn`t in this existence any more- i didnt ask

    Kiki D. Harshman // 2012-02-14 22:39:13 // //
  • Suppose you are dead ( according to your previous definition of dead) how would you know that you are dead? And, based in what you said about your relatives, that they did not know they were dead, it means they can think, they must have a consciousness at some level, so, couldn`t have you affect their level of happiness or change something in their own perception about themselves by acknowledge them of your perception about them in relation to the definition of life and dead, how do yoy feel about telling someone totally happy about life that they are dead, that they are not longer like you, or with you?

  • Deepak, I have always been sensitive to other energies around me and am a meditator myself but dont do it as much as I should.. < Busy life> I am nervous to see these energies in a form of a ghost as I know they are with me, but want to avoid this from happening as I live by myself and dont want to be afraid of this possibly occurring. Any tips ?

    Dj Patrice Love // 2012-02-14 22:20:22 // //
  • How do you know that they did not know they were dead, you just define dead a few days ago in a way that contradicts what you are saying about your relatives. How can they acknowledge dead when they have just crossed to another place, I don`t get it, are you redefining dead?
