The Afterlife and Metaphysics

The study of the afterlife means different things to different people. When you ask people what the word "afterlife" means to them, some will tell you that it means to reincarnate back into a physical body on earth, and some believe that it means reincarnating to a physical world or other dimension, but not necessarily a return back to the earth plane.

Still others will define it in more general terms, such as the soul maintaining existence after physical death, but not necessarily returning to any type of physical plane for another lifetime. When I think of the term "afterlife", I think of the soul's ability(or energy's ability) to survive after shedding the physical body upon death, regardless of whether or not it returns to a physical life form or not.

The Astral Body

One may ask, in the afterlife, how does the soul(or energy if you will) move from place to place? Afterall, If one doesn't have a physical body as a tool for moving to place to place, how are you then able to locate from place to place?

After the passing of the physical body, A less dense version of the physical body emerges into the astral world. This is known as the astral body. You'll find more information of the Astral body here:
The Astral Body and Communication.

The Astral World

Before a discussion commences on theoretical afterlife existence, let's start by understanding the metaphysical concept of what the astral world is like. So what is the astral world? Well in it's most basic sense, the Astral World is the place you find yourself after your physical body dies.

the Astral world is a plane of existence that lies just above the physical, it has many of the same characteristics as the physical plane, although it's not near as dense as the physical plane and isn't governed by the natural laws and physics that are found here on earth.

Some of the most noted features and characteristics of the astral world reported by mediums, astral travelers and those who've had near death experiences, include the following:

  • Libraries and Schools
  • Beings that have passed on from the Physical World
  • Full Cities
  • Instantaneous creation
  • Return from The Afterlife and Metaphysics to Metaphysical News And Views

Many people believe in the afterlife, but nobody knows what to expect once they they depart the physical.

But at least from a metaphysical standpoint, we now have a pretty good idea.

Please make sure and check the "News Blog" displayed on the left top portion of the page. There, you will find the latest updates to this site, as well as some of the latest news that pertains to the Metaphysical field.

"Death is one of two things. Either it is annihilation, and the dead have no consciousness of anything; or, as we are told, it is really a change: a migration of the soul from one place to another."
