Life in the spirit world isn’t all that different than life here in the physical world in terms of being with our loved ones. The most wonderful part about spirit life is that all we have to do is ask in our minds to be with someone and we are with them. We don’t have to walk, drive or fly to visit someone. So, in this way, you will always be with the people you love in the afterlife.
Just like in our human lives, people in spirit aren’t constantly side-by-side. Because we as spirits are pure energy, each one of us vibrates at a different frequency, which determines where in the spiritual dimension we exist. Some people like to call these different locations “levels.” More accurately, they are levels of vibration.
We increase our vibration through spiritual growth, which has nothing to do with religion, as there is no religion in the afterlife. The kinder, gentler, more peaceful, forgiving, compassionate and loving we are, the higher our vibration. This is one of the benefits to experiencing a physical life as a human being. Our growth as humans speeds up our vibration, which benefits us as spiritual beings. Of course it can have the opposite effect too. If we live a selfish, negative, angry and unloving life, this will lower our spiritual vibration. But I’ll explain this in greater depth in later questions.
In terms of traveling around the spirit world, psychic mediums, channelers and people who have had Life Between Lives regressions say we can only go to levels that match our vibrational frequency or lower. So people in spirit that you know who are vibrating at a higher frequency must come down to your level because you can’t go to theirs. Think of this more as a law of physics than a rule. This is the same reason that humans can’t visit the spirit world for the weekend (because we vibrate at a lower frequency), yet spirits can visit us here on the physical plane. These same principles hold true in the spirit world. Having said that, any time a spirit wants to meet with a loved one who is at a higher level, all we need to do is call for them and they will appear.
Most people don’t realize it, but life on the physical plane shares many similarities to life in spirit. You’ve probably noticed that you tend to hang around with people who are similar to you during various stages of your life. This is because you’re all vibrating at a similar frequency. You’ve probably heard the saying, “Like attracts like.” We gravitate toward one another because we’re vibrating at a similar frequency, which usually coincides with the fact that we have a lot in common.
You’ll notice that no matter where you go—the mall, the movie theatre or the hairdressing salon—you tend to run into the same people. Yet whenever you make a shift in consciousness and become more loving and compassionate as a result, one day you recognize that you’re no longer running into those people anymore. Suddenly you’ve made new friends or have at least recognized that you have less in common with your old friends, even if you’re hanging on to those relationships out of loyalty, complacency or fear of change. Nonetheless, one day when you go to the mall, movie theatre or hair salon, you realize you’re running into new friends. And, at some point, you rarely ever see your old friends anymore—because you’re vibrating at different frequencies—so you’re not even on the same vibrational level anymore. It’s as if you live in different worlds. And the truth is that vibrationally you do.
It’s impossible to describe in human terms what it’s really like in the spirit world, but the answer is yes, you do get to be with your loved ones there if you so desire.
