Imagine walking into a supermarket, a department store, or home improvement store. The moment you step through the door, you immediately know everything that is in the store, where it is, and everything else you want to know. Wouldn’t that be nice! Instant service – instant knowledge.
That is nothing in comparison to the knowledge found in the afterlife. To get a glimpse of the knowledge in the afterlife, imagine that you are touching a computer that you want to buy. The moment you touch the computer, you feel every tiny part that the computer is made out of down to its most basic chemical structure. You also completely understand the chemical and technical processes that it took to make that computer. In that very instant, you also know who was involved in making any part of the computer, what those people felt, what they experienced, and what life they lived.
Since all of that knowledge was so overwhelming, you let go of the computer for a second. Once you touch it again, you continue to feel how the computer is going to be used, who is going to use it, and everything about the life and experience of that person.
To fully understand the knowledge in the afterlife, you have to imagine that you are not just touching the computer but that you are – in one moment – feeling the same information about everything that ever was in the store, is in the store now, or could be in the store in the future.
That is heavenly service – heavenly knowledge.
When I wrote my first article My Near-Death Experience: The After-Life and What to Expect, I did not understand yet why “I could see the love, I knew the light, and I felt the knowledge.” Today I do.
Feeling the knowledge from the afterlife does not require the use of any senses. You could walk into the ‘heavenly’ store being completely blind and still have the same experience. Feeling the afterlife knowledge is like feeling the sun.
So why do people who have had a near-death experience talk or write about objects, colors, or sounds?
Having had a near-death experience is like having visited the sun. It is overwhelming, traumatic, and sometimes destructive. Verbalizing a near-death experience is an ultimate challenge. For many NDE children, not remembering a near-death experience is a survival skill. For many NDE adults, remembering a near-death experience is a way to make sense of a lifetime. Using objects, colors, or sounds help to make sense of the overwhelming experience.
In addition to using objects, colors, or sounds to describe an overwhelming NDE experience, the senses also serve as a transition between the ‘here’ and ‘there’. Based on my own near-death experience, I know that I had whatever I needed while I was dying to feel like I was going ‘home’. If that need includes for someone certain objects, certain colors, or certain sounds, I am sure it will be there.
How can being aware of an afterlife knowledge affect our life on earth?
- 1. Knowledge is infinite and available to us. What we know now is nothing to what we could know. Even though we will never come close to the knowledge in the afterlife, it does provide a glimpse of how much more we can learn on earth.
- 2. Our brain has much more capabilities than what we are using now. With the advancement of neuroplasticity, we are slowly discovering how much more our brain can develop at any age.
- 3. Knowledge is not confined to the brain. Since ‘heavenly’ knowledge is felt, we can use all of our senses to access that knowledge. Intuition, awareness, and taking the time to pay attention to what could be possible are important means to access that knowledge.
- 4. Drawings of children, especially children that have had a near-death experience can provide more knowledge than any words can.
- 5. Sometimes when I am waiting in line at the checkout counter in a store, I see very young children looking and smiling at me. We have a connection. The brightness of their eyes and their smile remind me of my near-death experience. If children are ‘reborn’ souls, they might remember the knowledge from the afterlife. Listening to them and observing them is an amazing opportunity. I like my mother’s saying, “Children are not given to us, they are only loaned to us.”
- 6. Not only children but also adults have the ability to access the ‘heavenly’ knowledge. Meditation, nature walks, dreams, and listening to one’s intuition or inner voice often contains more knowledge than one is aware of.
How can we use the afterlife knowledge to teach children, students, and ourselves?
When teaching children and students, it is important to use traditional knowledge carefully.
- 1. Studying Math can serve as a means to exercise the mind and to look for innovative approaches to a problem.
- 2. Studying English can be a way to access one’s own subconscious and to learn about the subconscious through the literature of other writers.
- 3. Studying History can be an awareness of the passing of time and the importance of growth.
- 4. Studying Science can be about exploring inventive, innovative, and infinite possibilities.
- 5. Studying Music can be about the heights and depths of our emotions and the connection of mankind.
- 6. Studying Art can be about the expression and promises of heaven.
- 7. Studying Foreign Languages can be a reminder of what we have in common on earth and what makes us unique at the same time.
- 8. Studying any subject in life can serve as a means to explore the ‘store’ that contains the knowledge of heaven.
The most important aspect about being aware of the knowledge in the afterlife is that nobody likes to come to a supermarket, a department store, or home improvement store and find a ‘CLOSED’ sign. Interestingly, it is often through the lack of our actions and lack of awareness that the sign is up. The one important item that I do remember from the knowledge of the afterlife is that it is up to each individual whether we open new doors or close them.
