What It’s Like In The Spirit World After We Die

Episode 7 of Season 8 on Afterlife TV: I’m excited about this episode, because we discuss what it’s like for spirits immediately after their physical death. I talk about the stages of reintegration back into the spiritual dimension from the physical. For instance, I explain what spirits eat, wear, and where they live.

But more importantly, I talk about the transitionary phase and why the spiritual realities of time and space don’t allow for it in the way we commonly imagine it. Yet there is lots of evidence of the life review stage, so I explain how all this really works considering spirits are beings of light, which will make perfect sense to you after the show.

Later in the show, I play a clip from an interview I did with Anita Moorjani. Anita had a near-death experience and a truly mind-blowing recovery considering she was dying from end-stage cancer. This clip adds a lot of insight into what it’s like as a spirit in the spirit world, which is why I’ve added it. The lessons we gain from this short clip include how our loved ones in spirit feel our emotions, how they are able to think of us and be aware of our lives instantly, and even how they have the ability to change the future (really cool).

    Thank you Bob, another inspiring episode with two of my favorites authors. I know what I would miss most when i am in the spirit world, EATING! Love that close up photo of the owl, as always am enjoying your wife beautiful photos, thank you Melissa, can I just WOW!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Monique,

      I agree. Eating must be greatly missed. The movie, City of Angels with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage, really suggested that — a great example.

      I read your comment to Melissa. Thank you!

    Hi Bob & Melissa! I’m just catching up on all the things that make me Happy & watching AFTERLIFETV is one of them.I wanted to comment before it is done because I always have so much to say because this subject matter as you know makes me so excited!Your explanations in your Beautiful Book.The one you just posted here & explaining about your Uncle Fishing was awesome! I find some people depending on their journey here on earth take it literally or just think there is no way they come in that way.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Thanks Ornella,

      I appreciate your support and love that you understand this so well. I hope you’re happy, healthy and wealthy.

    Anita Moorjani is a unique individual. I just LOVE her Energy. I read her incredible book DYING TO BE ME when it first came out. I remember watching your Interview with Anita when it first released, it is a MUST SEE & HEAR what happened to Anita. Her explanations of relationships with everyone in her life especially her Father. I had written to her after I read her book & she wrote me back, it was pretty awesome OXOX I have an extended version of this post on Facebook! I love SPIRIT!!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Ornella,

      So true, Anita is a special human being. The world is lucky to have her.


  5. Ornella Togmus says:

    Thank you for an incredible time spent & thank you for the BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHY Melissa, They really add to the thought process in listening to this great Information!! Thank you OXOX

  6. Candy says:

    I always love hearing Anita. She is so incredible the way she can verbally portray for us what she has experienced. The fact that she was given a choice, and chose to return made me wonder if we are all given a choice, but because of the awesomeness of the experience we choose to stay. Does she know why she was given a choice, and could view the results of her decision? Great listening! Thanks, Bob.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Candy,

      From what she told me, she does not know why for sure. ‘Most’ NDEers don’t other than that they still have work to do here. And I can only guess that the work Anita is doing (her books, speaking) is part of the reason for humanity. As for herself, I’m sure she’s gained a lot of eternal lessons since she woke up from that near-death experience and healed from her cancer. She’s living a lot of life since she’s been better.

      As to your other thought, I don’t think we all are given a choice to come back or stay in the spiritual realm. If a body is destroyed without the ability to repair it, that wouldn’t be an option, of course. And for those who pass of old age, especially in their 90s or over 100, I think they lived all the life they intended to live. Furthermore, I believe people who cross over as young children or young adults do so for a reason — it was intended before their birth that they wouldn’t be here long (for more reasons than we’ll ever know here in the physical realm). I think the stories we hear about NDEers being given the choice happen when they are in a position to choose (not all NDEers are given the choice, and just find themselves back in their bodies) — perhaps the brief death was an accident and not intended before birth.

      I hope this is helpful. I think my book, Answers About The Afterlife, does a much better job explaining the reasons for death, but I took the time to respond hoping it helps add a little clarity.
