Last week, someone asked me what my thoughts were about "life after death". THE question religious folk ask non-religious folk. "Well, what do
you think happens after we die, then?" I've thought a lot about it actually.
As a Massage Therapist, I've learned to feel more intensely than a very very large portion of the population. I can feel the fibers, little nuances
within a muscle, "knots", minute tissue and structural changes.... and for the point of this post, I feel energy. Very strongly. Now, I'm
actually a sports massage therapist, so I practice more with the "Western" physical aspect of massage vs the energy, but that doesn't mean I don't
feel it. In fact, I am so sensitive to the energy, there are times I will wake up with some random pain in my body, and come to find out that one of
my clients that day is the reason for it. After I work on that individual, my pain goes away. Transference. Something I've had to learn how to
block. Anyway - just setting up a basis for why I think the way I do.
Our bodies are made up of energy. Vibrations, and energy. Everyone can agree on that. Our thoughts, memories... everything is a vibration and form
of energy. Now, the hypothetical deep thinking comes into play - When we die, energy doesn't die. Energy can slow - but it doesn't disappear.
Energy can be released, but it doesn't die. It transforms, but doesn't disappear. As our bodies decay into the soil, plant life grows, sands
shift.... energy is absorbed and released, and has to go somewhere.
There are many people born with the ability to feel and sense vibrations and energy. As children, we are much more attuned to it. So, when you hear
of reincarnation cases in children - who is to say the child wasn't actually born with the memories/vibrations from someone who passed hundreds of
years ago? Or is in tune enough to sense a strong energy. And why they can remember things they never encountered, or sense or see entities.
Moving/living energy. It could explain why their bodies sometimes resemble the deceased. Our DNA is energy. Every thing about us is energy down to
the most basic cellular level.
Think of it like radio waves, etc. If we could actually hear and see them without the use of electronics. They are all around us - data, pictures,
sounds - moving around the air. Have you ever had a song in your head, only to turn on the radio and it is playing the exact song? Our
energy/vibrations picking up the sounds and colors that create flashes in our brains. But that is going beyond the point of this post. Forgive me.
That form of thinking also gives religions a way to continue to believe in the soul. Most religions don't believe in reincarnation of the soul. The
general belief is it goes to heaven/hell - whatever you believe. But it's that part of us that makes us unique religions generally agree on also.
It can move on to whatever realm you believe - but our physical energy stays in this one. Or, maybe it doesn't - and we get multiple universes!
There are so many things regarding quantum physics and the like that we don't understand, but it's oh so fascinating!
Anyway - hope you enjoyed my "life after death" thinking.
