We all have some clue that there is an after life. Concepts of heaven and hell intrigue us. there is general consensus that a haven is a place of being happy in after life ; while hell is a place when you are always burning in misery.
However, while we accept these truths , we also need to be aware that the soul is an energy. Our body is like a house where the soul lives on Earth. The after life exists at a soul level i.e at an energy level. In other words, we can say that the after life exists for the mind , not the body. When we die, our body dissolves but the spirit remains. The spirit or the life force energy within us leaves our physical realm and goes to an energy realm which matches its energy frequency.
A spirit which is negative would respond to a call from the negative and go into the energy of hell as hell is negative; whereas a spirit which is positive at the moment of death would respond to a call from heaven, as heaven is a positive frequency.
The spirit or the soul in us is an energy. It responds to the energy which matches its frequency. The spirit doe snot ears, eyes, nose, skin etc. It is a pure energy . Hence, it cannot decide where to go after the body is dead . it would automatically get pulled by the energy which matches the person's thoughts at the moment of death. A spirit who deeply believe in God and goodness would respond in energy to an angel's vibration calling in to light. But,a spirit which is negative would not be able to hear angels calling it to heaven after death, as it is too dense in energy compared to the Angel. like a stone cannot absorb water, a negative soul cannot hear god calling it back home. So, it just goes into darkness.
The burning in hell is also at an energy level. the spirit 's body is not there . So, it does not burn literally but it feels as if it is burning. That means that the spirit always feel miserable and in pain in hell, as if its actually burning in body. Similarly, in heaven , the spirit feels it is happy. The happiness is not for body but for the soul. The soul does not need good food or clothes to be happy as it is without the body. It only needs love , acceptance, understanding and respect at the feeling level to be happy. These feelings are created in heaven because the energy is positive.
However, since the spirit exists without the body, we do not have to die to experience the feelings of being in heaven or hell. Even while being in body, we , as souls, exist independent of the body. The feelings can be experienced by our soul by disassociating from our body and going to the skies. The trip to heaven is like a holiday for the soul from being in a body; while a trip to hell is like being helpless in a jail of misery.
At the level of the soul, we exist in heaven or hell, even while being alive on earth because the soul does not feel alive though the body. the soul lives by experiencing feelings '. If we feel good predominantly., we are in heaven as the soul and would go there if we were to die at this moment; as our energy matches the vibration of the dimension of heaven. If we feel bad most of the time, we live in hell as the spirit and would reach hell if we were to die at this moment because our energy matches that of hell.
Just as we lock our house and go for a holiday, but can come back in when we please; our soul leaves the body and goes to trips to heaven or the skies; and comes back in when it pleases. If we feel absent minded, helpless or life less, it happens because our soul is out of the body; and we are running like a car without its driver or a computer left on without its operator. Our mind without awareness., keeps repeating the program of feelings , the soul leaves it with. Hence, we repeatedly feel negative even if our external life changes. Whether we are rich or poor, fat or thin, we would go on feeling negative in different ways until our soul takes charge of our mind and directs it on how to feel.
The soul experiences life only through feeling its energy exchanges; and whatever happens in the external world, all that matters to the soul is feelings. So, if circumstances manifest outside which make us feel success ful in the body but helpless as the soul, the soul feels negative and leaves the body to be in more positive dimension. The body is kept on like a boring TV programme because the soul cannot deal with negativity, unless it disciplines the body and mind to drive in its reign.
The soul has to be called in the body when there is negativity outside. The soul is very light in energy. It gets thrown off when the sea is rough outside. But , it has to come back in and take charge of its boat to be able to steer the body out of the negativity. If the soul is not called back with mind force, it stays above the body and the body dies while staying negative . The spirit fragment reaches hell as the after life since its energy is negative at the moment of death. The next life is more negative for the soul as when the soul reincarnates, the body goes through the same cycle of misery and success, till it can pull its spirit fragment stuck in hell and take complete charge of its body, while alive.
Metaphorically, if we leave our boat in mid sea and run upto the sky to feel good, the boat crashes in the sea and drowns with a tiny bit of our soul in it. When we are born again with a new boat ?body, the new life starts from the mid sea. We left the game in difficulty and we restart the game from that point of difficulty. Life is like a video game and we cannot stay negative, bored, compromised or helpless to win the game. The soul's destination is to control and defeat all negative energies and create what it dreams to be happy.We have to feel happy, excited , passionate , powerful as a co-creator. understood and loved to reach the dimension of heaven.
The soul would not stay in the body if you make it work all the time on Earth when the tide is negative. The soul needs to acknowledged without the body as well, as a life force by itself which takes decisions on where the car should go. Our mind needs to be trained to take trips to heaven so that we can feel our soul self while alive , though using imagination. The imagined feelings of happiness would motivate the soul to stay in the body and overcome difficulties in a way that it stays connected to its life purpose. Happiness is a feeling and can be achieved only when our soul self feels happy within, not dead or bored with monotony of life.

Chapter 10 -
We all believe in taking breaks from a busy schedule. The industry of tourism is booming because people need breaks.
However, it is not enough to give breaks to the body. Our soul also needs a break from the tensions of life. Even if we take holidays to hill stations, we may not allow our soul to be free of worries and anxieties about our past or future. We need to know how to feel good within us even if external circumstances are adverse
The soul feels secure and positively optimistic when it can take breaks from the body and can be its free spirit self. Feeling like pure formless radiance of energy helps the soul wash off the negativity which gets stuck to it by being bound in a human body on Earth. Visiting the limitless non-physical dimensions of light, in imagination/meditation help the soul come back to Earth with a fresh zeal to be alive.
To give the soul a break, we do not need to go anywhere physically. Our body is like a computer, where the soul is a computer operator. The computer operator gets a break when we switch off the computer.
We cannot completely switch off our body as we would die, if we do so. However, to rejuvenate our soul energy, we can switch off the activity schedule of the mind and feel peace, at intervals. Even when we do not use deliberate positive visualization to feel the peace, we give our mind breaks by using addictions like smoking, liquors, drugs or emotionally comforting foods.
Giving breaks by deliberate mind control, helps us work better and feel healthier, because feeling our energy at complete peace even for a second creates a rush of positive hormones in the body, and helps to free us from stress or anxieties. Overtime, the need to be at peace becomes more addictive than any drug or alcohol addiction; because the hallucination we create through drugs or by swaying into alcohol, can be manifested simply by using day dreaming or positive imagination, without any side effects.
To feel at peace within, it is not necessary that there has to be peace outside. Our mind is a computer. It can create any feeling without reality corresponding to it.
For experiencing desired feelings of happiness in the present moment, we can use the memory of a happy feeling experienced in the past or create feelings of being happy in altogether new dimensions of imagination. The techniques of using pleasant memories to create relaxing effects in the present time, is given below. It is extremely effective for rejuvenating the body by creating positive hormones, by releasing the mind from stress.
STEPS OF VISUALIZATION
Sit in a place where you can be alone for some time.
Close your eyes.
Think of the sky and the floating clouds.
Imagine being in the sky, like a bird flying in the clouds. Spread your wings in freedom.
Keep flying for a few minutes.
Spread your wings wider, stretch your energy and fly higher and higher.
Now, imagine that you are entering a beautiful garden in heaven.
Feel the beauty around you.
If you need to, you can recall the memory of visiting a beautiful garden on Earth sometime in the past or a sea beach which you felt was beautiful. Carry the feelings from that experience into your imagination.
Imagine the beauty of the garden in heaven.
Feel flowers around you brightening up your senses.
Feel the fresh breeze touching every aspect of your skin, and feel your cells opening up to the freshness.
Feel yourself by a lake. Feel a fog surrounding you near the lake. Imagine the white light of the fog filling you up and purifying you.
Feel bubbles of joy filing you up, and feel your cells sparkling with radiance. Feel loved in every cell of you in imagination.
Spend some time feeling yourself without a physical body, as if you are in a body made of the spirit.
Feel light and clear and you can go on to imagine you are one with air.
Feel boundless and limitless, merging with the Oneness.
Then, walk by the lake, down the garden and over the hill as if you are floating on clouds.
You may feel other spirits around the place floating with lightness like butterflies.
Feel the uncomplicated, clear, energy of happiness, fun and peace.
Keep walking around and exploring, feeling your weightless body float like a feather of joy.
You can imagine golden buildings around you. There is a library in heaven, a Council Hall and a Great Hall.
If you enter the Great Hall, you would find your soul friends who will hug you and greet you with love. Feel their love filling you up and smile. The Great Hall also has Soul classrooms where you can go in and find what is your current soul lesson. Accept the first impressions coming to your mind.
There is also an ENERGY VORTEX of huge spiraling energy under which you can stand and release negativity as in an energy shower.
Feel yourself under the Energy Vortex and feel clusters of negative energy or black smoke being sucked out as by a vacuum cleaner. Feel light falling on you from the sky and feel yourself filling up with positive energy coming in.
Feel wings on your shoulders, and increase your size as you allow negativity to release and accept positive energy in its place.
Feel yourself double your size. Think of a GOD you love and say thanks mentally .If you send God positive energy, it will be reflected back. Feel that you are open to receiving God’s love. Feel a shower of blessings filling you up, without any obstruction, in your imagination.
Feel the happiness of feeling loved and whole.
Come out of the Energy vortex and you can take a stroll in the garden, sit on a bench, stand by a beautiful lake and feel the fresh breeze cooling you.
Feel the fresh energy coming in your stomach, in your heart, in your shoulders, in your legs, in your hands and feel all your cells glowing with sparkling light.
Now, feel your face glowing with golden energy. You may also feel the top of your head opening up, and light filling into your crown, as if all your brain cells are opening to light. Feel a circular wire circuit on the top of your head and connect it to a golden halo of light above you. Feel filled with a current of light.
SMILE from your core. FEEL THE SMILE IN YOUR STOMACH. Close your eyes and breathe in the positive energy, in your imagination. Spread the energy of the smile to all the cells of your body. Imagine yourself healthy and moving about with freedom.
Now, you can think that you are flying back into the clouds and re- entering your body on Earth.
Feel light and refreshed after giving your mind a nice holiday.
This imaginative holiday done daily or on a weekly basis would heal you more than taking physical breaks, as it would help free your mind from perpetual worrying, and thus, activate the creation of positive hormones in the body.
