We have been taught to fear death and that it is something that happens 'to' us. How does the idea that at some core level you are deciding when it is time to check out. How you are responding to this discussion has a lot to do with your beliefs around the afterlife or lack of.
The beliefs you hold about where you are going, really plays a role in the way you choose to live your life. For some, there is nothing beyond this existence and they cling to this life with everything they have. There are 4 billion (can't remember how many are on the planet right now) beliefs around what comes after this life. No one belief right or wrong. Each specific to this aspect of life that you are living in this moment.
But they are nothing more than beliefs and can be changed at anytime and, therefore, changing the way you come at your life experience.
This time around.... lol
Emotions=Communication. It is how Spirit gets our attention. Makes complete sense. Once I started playing with this concept, my life changed. How the heck did I miss that one? Sometimes it gets tricky when I have a knee jerk response to something that I am not really wanting. But with some practice I have found that my feelings don't let me down. The more sensitive I get to how I feel, the better I feel in general. The better I feel the more I find my life experience bringing to me all the things I could ever hope for. Sure I still have some resistant or limiting thoughts that I want to turn around but cleaning up my emotional vibration has made all the difference
