When I was a young girl going through many of the traumas and dramas within my family, I was given a message. A message which has the potential of ceasing all war, and much of the fear we are living with in this physical world. It is the message the authors in this book have come to know through their own life experiences, and when we realise this message as our truth, life on this planet will be completely different for all who inhabit it.
The fear of death underpins every survival fear we have. Fear of not enough, fear of getting sick, fear of rejection, and on it goes. When humanity realises we are here on this beautiful planet for a short adventure, and after we have finished we will return from whence we came—back to a world of unconditional love and infinite possibility, we may start to enjoy the adventures and challenges we have here in this environment. We will see them for what they are, lessons in expansion and spiritual growth.
In this first edition of The Awakening Soul Series, I have gathered together some of the most incredible stories around the experience of death I have come across. As a teacher of deliberate creation, and through my radio podcast show, I have met and had conversations with some amazing souls who have first-hand experience of death in all its myriad of forms.
Some have experience the loss of a beloved child through a terrorist attack or a shooting, some have experienced their own deaths resulting in an NDE (near-death experience,) either from an illness or a medical mishap, and some have experienced different realms of existence, realms that can be places people go when they leave their physical bodies. Further, some have explored all of it in a passionate search for meaning and to alleviate their fears around the death experience. Some of these topics are controversial. For instance, many people say we do not die until we leave our physical body and don’t come back, and so the near-death experience is not what happens when we die, but it’s just an out-of-body experience we have to an interim place of our own creation to commune with our guides and loved ones in spirit, to receive a message, or to remember something we need to take back into our lives.
Nonetheless, this book is not about the semantics of if people died or not, it is about the transformation a human personality can experience when confronted with something that has long been believed as the most traumatic experience of our lives—death!
We see death every day on the news, and hear it reported on an hourly basis: The death toll, the tragedy, the terrible horrific horror of it all. Our scary movies are only scary because we believe the very worst thing that can happen is we get killed. The tragedy of death has been so perpetuated in our society as the worst thing that can possibly happen to us. As a young healer when I looked out into the world and thought; how can I help? How can I alleviate some of the suffering in this world? I saw that helping people overcome the perceived trauma of death, showing them it is not the ending we think it is, seemed to be the thing that would do the most good. To let people know there is NO DEATH and even though our physical body may cease to exist, our mind and soul live on to explore and experience other adventures in the infinitely vast creations of the eternal reality.
I know you will enjoy the journey we take you on through the pages of this book, we look forward to hearing your comments and knowing how reading these stories transformed your life.
Enjoy! 😊 Big Love KAren Swain 💝
