Majic/Anibal is quite right.
Free will in the discarnate dimensions grants one the choice of telling what one thinks is the truth or willingly attempting to deceive.
When most souls leave the flesh they join a group consciousness of like-minded individuals. They do this for telepathic unity (which gives them
comfort, support and a sense of family) and for the advantage of increased energy levels from combining their soul energies. By definition, Group
Entities are deceptive because they strive to promote their own agenda whereby they value membership and influence of the group over the Absolute
Ask a Hindu GE if Ganesh is a god and you'll get an answer in the affirmative. Ask a Christian GE if Jesus is Lord and you'll get a resounding
"yes." Ask the latter group if Ganesh is a god and you'll get a "no." Ask the former group if Jesus is above all the other gods and you'll also
get a "no." Both of these relatively common angel collectives reside in the Mid Realms of Spirit and are basically spiritual, but that does not
insure that they tell the Absolute Truth – as both are promoting their own agenda.
The more truthful and objective discarnate elements are those who seek to become a "Light onto Oneself" and are not part of a collective
consciousness that strives to further its own agenda. These are the discarnate Saints. True Saints in the Spirit do not promote the "gods" from the
traditional religions but instead pursue transcendent spirituality with an individualistic focus.
One must also keep in mind that a discarnate or group thereof may be telling the truth as he or they see it but still be wrong. Honesty does not
guarantee knowledge or wisdom in any particular subject.
It also helps to understand that the discarnate dimensions consist mainly of a large collection of special interest groups. Like political parties in
the flesh, they generally promote only part of the truth in order to further their own particular platform.
As with the flesh, the mob mentality in the discarnate dimensions is generally more interested in gaining more power and influence than in furthering
an accurate appraisal of the situation.
A timely example is all the people who channeled that John Kerry would win the Presidential election. They received that information from Group
Entities who wished to promote that agenda but whose prejudice tarnished their perception of reality.
From my many years of experience as a spiritual medium, here is a guidepost in getting accurate information from Spirit:
The more powerful channelings are usually deceptive or just wrong as they come from Group Entities. The more subtle, quieter messages that do not have
a whole lot of energy surrounding them but are pure and sincere (and are representative of discarnate Saints) are generally more accurate. So if you
feel a lot of energy surrounding a particular message from Spirit, you can safely assume that it is wrong.
Indeed, this constitutes a rather strange paradox but I have found it time and time again to be the case.
