Life is Continuous . . . . . .by Ann Frazier West on 07/23/15
The Aura: Subtle Bodies and Levels of Consciousness
Life is continuous; there is no death, but a shift of consciousness to a level that is already a part of our make-up, and one that we have not often been conscious of using. If we use our color spectrum as an example of a continuum of vibratory frequency, there are colors below and above our visible spectrum that we are unable to see with our physical eyes. As we develop our inner vision, our ability to see dimensions beyond the Earth dimension is possible. Shifting into a new dimension, we term the afterlife, does not appear to offer a completely different experience for those of us moving from the Earth plane. However, there are adjustments that we must make that will involve the laws of those regions - laws which enable us to navigate easily - and to speak, see and hear more efficiently. Our earthly law of gravity is not in force there, so we will no longer have the resistance to it that depletes our bodies of energy and stamina.
The astral level is the closest in vibratory frequency to our world and one that does not seem drastically different from Earth life, at least where human patterns and activities are concerned. Spirit beings found on this level remain there for varying lengths of time, however they can choose to move upward to other levels when they are willing to progress through various studies and service to others. A move in any direction depends on one's soul growth and personal level of consciousness.
