Enjoy the words, knowledge, love and wisdom!
When you think of your loved ones
Who have gone on before ...
And you shed a tear ...
Know that they are near!
Then feel the joy in their heart,
For they now know that we are never far apart.
"WE" are not above, or beyond anyone or anything, for "We" are all these things, and we are also "You"!
This is a message from "God and spirit" - 13 Oct 2013 (as I was putting this webpage together)
What happens when we die?
One of the difficult things to grasp is that when you, I, we die, none of us go anywhere. When you are enlightened or are aware that you have different lifetimes, you realize that you don't actually go anywhere. You are already there, thus you are just going through a change (an expansion) of awareness.
You all exist in the Unified Field of Consciousness, forver, thus, "death" is an illusion. What those left behind mourn is the physical reality of someone they (you) cared about. You can't "take them to a picnic" anymore ... but you may still be in touch with them if you are still and listen.
This is a part of the New Expanded Reality that is coming to the earth and its people.
An Interesting Thing Happened on the way to Dinner
October 4th, 2013, 5:15 PM, Friday evening - I was sitting at the computer considering where I would go out to (Martine's traditional Friday night fish) dinner, when I suddenly heard the phone beeping as if it is off the hook, in the kitchen. As no person and no animal, was close to or had access to that phone, I thought, "this is strange". And then, I remembered a medium or two saying, "Martine is trying to get your attention" ... so, I thought, "she has it now!" Then I thought, "This is a Sign that Martine has a message for me!" So, I sat quietly on the couch, to listen to the still small voice within. What I felt was a feeling of Martine being elated that she finally got my attention. Then with a sense of feeling and hearing with my inner ears, the message was "Martine wants you to feel comfortable" ... "comfort and joy". She is sending "Good tidings of comfort and joy" ... Joy that I am even "hearing" and understanding her. Further, she'll be with me at fish dinner, at Olive Garden tonight, and thinks that crab would be good.
[There was no crab on the menu, so I had shrimp and scallop linguini]
And as I sat at the counter eating dinner ... I could feel Martine's spiritual energy filling the room, but lighter than air, so nobody would notice unless thay were attuned to those kinds of spiritual energies.
"I am here, you are there and we are ONE!"
A message from the Universal Spirit, 22 September 2013
FEEL THE LOVE!
"Feel the Love! Even when you don't feel it, it is here, there and everywhere; it is just not focused by your thoughts (or from those who love you, knowingly) so that it becomes so obvious that you feel it. Thus, it matters not (to us - giving this message) 'who' comes to us or you, for we know that we are one in spirit and multimately one in number.
Not to worry, for all is as it 'should be', thus we say, there are both 'no' shoulds and yet 'everything' that is, is a 'should' ... OR IT WOULDN'T EVEN BE!"
- A message from "Above & Beyond", 12 Oct 2013, 3 PM
What is enlightenment? It is simply the realization that who you are in every moment is a Perfect, Eternal Expression of Creation, separate from no-thing and no one, in this universe or any other.
Holding Others Back After Death!
But, can we, REALLY?
They are as FREE from the confines of earth and body as they choose to be, just as we on earth are free to miss them or not. Thus, their conscious awareness may be anywhere or any time they choose, just as we many times think, or day dream, about being somewhere else in another time or place. They still do that, but without a physical body to "ground" them, so they may be off to "be" there ... or here! All thoughts are electromagnetic and thus real in their own context and consciousness is the spiritual-quantum stuff we are really made of!
So, if, as or since you and another being did certain things together, the dearly departed one may indeed show up in thought form as you are in a situation familliar to them, whether or not you are aware of them, as you continue doing what you used to do, together; especially if it is or was loving and or joyful! And since we're all joined together, spiritually, in love, to help and assist each other, this is all a part of a loving natural process we call "God" manifest. Thus, as we are in communion with others, whether living in a human body or not, this is truly the Divine Communion of love. So, there is no "there" to get to.
Love connects us all, and these events are proof of love, the connections it enables and the continuance of life beyond these earthly environs and limitations. Thus, though each consciousness is unique and sovereign, we are all connected, (though we humans don't want to believe it and thus can't perceive it) often acting like a flock of birds or school of fish, dancing the dances of life and love as we follow our paths through this life and others.
Further, time is timeless so we are always in our everlasting Now, examining various portions of this infinite instant. So, bringing this a little more down to earth, all things are happening at once; and we just choose the order in which we want to experience them.
We write the stories, then see them through our own eyes, with whatever kind of lenses we choose; showing us a world that may be good, bad, beautiful, ugly, fearful or loving. We even invent the lenses through which we view the actors we gathered and the stage we set for our lives. This is all very creative! We are the Creators we've been looking for! And the news is that The Creator is within each one of us!
Now, those disincarnate ones you might have been aware of, seemingly "hanging around", they may just be coming back to see a loved one or to re-experience some earthly joys. But, the portion of their infinite soul that you become aware of is just one personality or portion of the Grand Soul of the Infinite, Eternal, Immortal Everything that is The All-That-IS. We are each and all portions of divinity having a physical experience and this experience is a part our greater divine plan of experiencing All-That-IS and is, was and never shall be separate from God-Goddess!
As for my former wife and lover (many lifetimes), MARTINE, in her larger awareness is in multiple places at once, in many time frames and dimensions. Given that scenario, there is no way I can hold her back! And, I still trust her and thus allow her to make her own choices, as she allows me to make mine.

P.S. "The issue of trust is really an issue of self-trust: trusting yourself to be in the right place at the right time and to take care of yourself in any situation." - "Your Soul's Gift" by Robert Schwartz, p 326
Reverend Martine is One with The Light ... and always has been - and you have been, too. [Click to learn more!]
What is God?
Here is Rev. Martine's answer, from "the other side":
(through a medium)
She says that "God is that light that permeates all things" where she is and she's aware of the closeness of this presence around her, like the guiding presence of a father. And, it's everywhere, its light permeates through everything and there is a sense of never being alone; never being lonely. You can be on your own if you wish to be, but you're always feeling very connected. Sometimes, she says, that doesn't always happen in the physical world.
A Summary of the audio file (to the right) that you can listen to
When someone dies, the focus of the consciousness on the physical world doesn't immediately stop. However as the acceptance of the transformation we call death becomes more concrete, the consciousness withdraws from the physical body and becomes more aware of the greater reality and the expansion of love that we are all a part of.
In the past, many people got what they expected to get when they pass, although in this New Age the collective belief of life after death has changed and is continuing to change. Thus, fewer people believe in hellfire and damnation, but those who do will very quickly create that reality for themselves until they realize that they do not have to do so; as they realize that their mind creates what ever or where ever they imagine.
A new realization about "death", what it is and shy it is, is forthcoming to the people of the earth.
Because grieving is painful, there is at times a desire or temptation to rush the process or even push it aside altogether. For the soul, grief is an expression of love, and every expression of love is healing. If we resist grief, we literally wrap energy around our pain and lock it into place. Crying is the body’s natural means for clearing such energetic density; tears keep energy flowing and so allow for further healing."
Quoted from - Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born (pp. 243-244), by Robert Schwartz (2010-05-14) ... North Atlantic Books. Kindle Edition.
"We who are One can never be separate from one another, but we can create the illusion of separation in the physical realm. In our nonphysical Home, where no such illusion exists, we know that we are cells in the heart of one Divine Being, united by Love in one cosmic pulse. On Earth, seemingly confined by the apparent limitations of a human body, we perceive ourselves as distinct from one another. Only the most powerful of brings can create such illusion. Only the most courageous ones challenge themselves to live in it.
