We most certainly continue our spiritual growth in the spirit world. Spirits often talk about it when conveying messages through psychic mediums. Channelers speak of it. And it was evident in my own Life Between Life regressions. We grow by going to school. We grow by teaching others. We grow by guiding souls having a human life. We grow by assisting people who are crossing back over into the spirit world after having a human life. The opportunities for growth in the spiritual dimension are endless.
This question is actually kind of funny if you think it through. Asking if we continue our spiritual growth in the spirit world is a lot like asking if we continue to make money at our place of employment or if we continue to get fit at the gym? Since the spirit world is our true home and our true essence is that of spirit, it makes sense that we would continue to grow spiritually after we return home to the afterlife.
Our life here on earth (the physical plane) is a temporary trip we make from the spirit world. Therefore, the more logical question would be to ask if we continue our spiritual growth here on the earth plane, and that answer would be yes, as well. Apparently, a human life is a lot like boot camp where we learn and grow a lot in a short amount of time.
Experiencing a human life is only one of many opportunities for spiritual growth. There are other dimensions, places of existence, and even living forms that our souls choose to experience. And there’s a lot to learn in the afterlife itself. Just like we learn and grow from watching the lives of other people here on earth, people in spirit get to observe other people living on the physical plane (or in other dimensions or places) and see what they are doing well or what they could be doing better. Likewise, we get to talk with people in spirit who have had many lives and learn what lessons they have to teach us. Even when we, ourselves, teach other people in spirit the lessons we’ve learned from our various lifetimes, we grow to master those lessons even more by teaching them.
Keep in mind that the spirit world grants us access to anyone we’d like to meet. Since people in spirit can be in multiple places at one time, even those who were famous on the physical plane are willing and able to talk with us. Imagine being able to ask questions of anyone in history: Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr., Napoleon Hill, Mother Theresa, Henry Ford, Leonardo Da Vinci, William Shakespeare, Anne Frank, Gandhi, Socrates, Abraham Lincoln, John Lennon or Babe Ruth. Consider the wisdom you’d learn from their successes and mistakes. What a treasure trove of information they’d be.
Ironically, once we have access to people of notoriety in spirit, we as spirits don’t long to meet them just because they’re famous. The thrill of meeting celebrities is another one of those human characteristics that doesn’t carry over to spirits. There’s no fame in the spiritual dimension. So even though we have greater access to people like those mentioned above, it’s unlikely that we as spirits will care to connect with them unless we’re trying to learn about something that they experienced or happen to teach.
