There is no one answer to this question. You’d have to ask individual people in spirit what they do in the afterlife for a definitive answer, but there are some common things that people in spirit have mentioned to give you an idea.
When you die and cross over to the other side, you’ll initially meet with loved ones in spirit who are there to greet you and welcome you home. It’s basically like having a welcome home party. Then you’ll process the life that you just lived with the assistance of advanced spiritual beings. This is called a life review, and this is where you’ll take away the lessons and growth that you gained from your physical life.
While all this is happening, you’ll also catch up on what’s happening with your surviving loved ones back on the physical plane. You’ll be fully aware of all that’s going on with them, especially their grief of your loss. So you might try sending them a signal that you still exist, what is called an “after-death communication.” This is where you might fill their room with a fragrance that reminds them of you, perhaps the smell of your cologne or the scent of cigars, banana bread or your favorite flower (whatever might make them think of you). Other forms of after-death communication include the flickering of lights, blowing out of candles, birds or other animals looking into their window, perhaps even showing up in your loved ones’ dreams.
Once you’ve become reacquainted with the spirit world again, you are likely to want to visit with loved ones in spirit whom you haven’t seen in some time. This might be a family member, friend or even a soul you know from another lifetime. Or you might want to attend classes to learn about fear, forgiveness or emotions that are more generally associated with physical incarnation (human life).
As odd as it might seem, many people in spirit have communicated this idea that schools exist in the afterlife. But spirits aren’t learning reading, writing and arithmetic; the classes in the spirit world have more to do with lessons that assist with our spiritual growth. For example, I learned during a life-between-lives regression that my soul teaches about fear in the spirit world. Since we don’t feel fear in spirit, it’s something that many people in spirit are interested in understanding.
We also have the equivalent of jobs in the spirit world, although we don’t work for money, as we don’t need money in spirit. Some people in spirit help the newly crossed over, while others help with specific circumstances, such as sudden deaths, suicides, mass murders or child deaths. There are even people who work with animals that cross over. Although these are sometimes referred to as jobs, they are more like callings that provide us with fulfillment and spiritual growth.
How we spend our time (for lack of a better word, since time doesn’t exist in the afterlife) has infinite options. We might choose to serve as someone’s spirit guide. We might act as a counselor helping people in spirit process their last life. We might even coordinate coincidences for people on the physical plane to help guide them toward the experiences they pre-planned for their life. The possibilities are almost as endless as the spirit world itself, which means there is one thing that doesn’t exist in the afterlife—boredom.
