The last 24 hours the theme ‘the afterlife’ has been coming to me through several sources. It is a big theme and as usual my journal only rides the surface of such complex topics.

The afterlife (also referred to as life after death or the world to come) is the belief that the essential part of an individual’s identity or the stream of consciousness continues after the death of the physical body. According to various ideas about the afterlife, the essential aspect of the individual that lives on after death may be some partial element, or the entire soul or spirit, of an individual, which carries with it and may confer personal identity or, on the contrary nirvana.

The strength to invite in the unknown involves trust and this evening I happened across a journey which invited me into the unknown. Nothing is by mistake and my intention for the journey was to trust that I would be shown something that was completely unknown to me. The following is what happened on this very personal journey but as my initial intention was to write about the afterlife I felt to share it.

I called in a power animal to journey with me and an ocelot appeared. The ocelot is a small wild cat native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central and South America. As a spirit animal the Ocelot symbolises vision, focus, and intuition. Ocelots have an incredible perception that allows them to see and understand the world in ways that others can not. The Ocelot is equally comfortable on land as it is in water. This allows Ocelot people to easily connect with both the physical and dream world.

The Ocelot is also said to see wisdom in both light and the dark places and this ability to see so clearly brings love, guidance, consideration, and protection to others. The Ocelot is also a reminder to journey inwards into the unknown of myself and my own personal needs, as this will assist to give from a full heart rather than perceived obligation. The Ocelot also indicates that alone time is important and to ensure that I have my own sacred space to retreat to so I can recharge my energy.

Journeying with the Ocelot I was met with another dimensional aspect of myself and I was told that there is no ‘after life’ because we are multidimensional beings who are having simultaneous experiences in different dimensions. I was shown that the crop circles on earth are created as portals to our other dimensional lives and that they are created by aspects of us that come from these other dimensions. I was shown that when we die it is only one aspect of us that stops experiencing life on this planet but then we return to another ‘star’ aspect of ourselves, which is in a different dimension.

I was also shown that our family members on this planet are often our ‘star’ family in other dimensions. I saw a lot of dark purples and pinks in the dimension I was taken to, which surprised me and I was told that these colours are ‘good medicine’. I was also shown that it is the ‘medicine woman’ aspect of me that has come to earth this life time.

Pretty cool and a very unknown experience for me as was intended, and obviously a topic that I will need to look into. As someone very wise I know always says, it is important to experiment for yourselves, to have your own experience, so that you can come to your own understandings and make the most of this current physical lifetime accordingly.
