A woman went through the stages of the free, online afterlife communication training Seek Reality Online offers at https://afterlifeinstitute.org/self-guided/. The training is in eight stages that progress from learning to allow messages to come through to learning to sense when a loved one is present. These are her journals of her experiences the first time she went through the training, presented here with her permission.
Stage 3: Learn how to allow free unfoldment for afterlife communication
I had a connection with my mom during recording 2 of Stage 3. We were in the garden in my aunt’s place with my paternal grandmother who also passed away. My mom and grandmother were getting along so well, and my mom could suddenly speak perfect Spanish to communicate with my grandmother.
Later on she took me to my childhood home. She told me to open all the windows in her room. We have kept her room shut and haven’t changed a thing in there since she passed into spirit. She told me to give all of the stuff in her room to needy people. She took me to every room in the house and told me what to throw away. We have loads of clutter in that house. In one room, we have a super old carpet. She said, “Please throw away this old carpet.” She went to the garden and laughingly said, “OK, the garden looks OK (kind of like, “OK, at least one place in the house looks decent”).
She took me to the neighbor’s house also as if to show me how she can watch over anyone who is on earth. One of the neighbors we are very good friends with was staring at a canvas related to travel.
My mom also tried massaging my dad’s neck. Dad has a huge neck problem since her death. But he couldn’t feel it. We then drank a glass of wine together. I said, “But you don’t drink!” She said, “My afterlife version does!”
I ended the meditation because I felt nothing much else was happening. We were just floating together through the house in kimonos (she is Japanese). Maybe I wasn’t in a mode of allowing anymore.
Stage 4: Practice having an afterlife communication
I had a connection with my mom. She was wearing her signature blue, very old, worn out sweater. I asked her why she was wearing that old ragged sweater in the afterlife. She said she liked it and then she morphed into two other of her signature sweaters from Earth and showed me how she can morph into wearing anything she wants in a split second.
We were in a green field. We sat at a wooden table and she made delicious sushi appear for us to eat. I asked her how the afterlife is like for her. She pointed behind her and her parents were standing there in kimonos, and there was a white haired dog, also a trumpet appeared. It meant she now gets to learn to play all musical instruments. On Earth she was a violinist. She told me she lives in a Japanese-style afterlife city with her parents like she always wanted. On Earth, she had left Japan to pursue a violin career and always yearned to go back, but she never did.
She gave me a piece of chocolate. I asked her,”Why are we eating chocolate?” She told me I should go easy on my diet. (I’ve been trying to diet to lose a few pounds.) Then she took me to a river and said, “This is my favorite place. This is where I watch over you guys.” In the river, I could see glimpses of my dad and sister on Earth. It also showed an image of me dancing on a Bollywood song (I just came back from India where I did a dance course). I felt happy she saw that! She said she tries to help my sister, but she doesn’t allow her to. She also commented something about my dad’s health.
I asked her how the experience was when she passed. She told me how she was confusedly strolling through the hospital after leaving her body when she heard her parents calling her by her childhood nickname. She turned around to see them, and she hugged them. Then they wanted her to go with them. She didn’t want to leave her children behind, but her parents assured her we would be OK and she could come back later.
She touched the necklace I always wear with her ashes inside and showed me a round-shaped necklace she was wearing. We then rode a little red toy-like train. Then she said, “Go and meet your friends.” I had an appointment with new friends later that evening.
Surprisingly one of the friends I met that evening was wearing a round-shaped necklace which caught my eye, and she started talking to me about super cute small red trains she had seen while being in France recently. I don’t know if this is connected to what my mom showed me somehow.
Stage 5-1: Have a daydream that merges into afterlife communication
I was on a beach with my mom. We were sitting on the sand.
She told me she has been seeing what I’ve been doing and is proud of me and is with me always.
I asked her what she eats in the afterlife. She said she eats lots of sushi and ice cream.
I asked her what happened exactly on the day she committed suicide. She said her thoughts were like a snake slithering around non-stop in her mind, and she just had to stop those thoughts, and death was the only way, although she didn’t want to leave us behind. (She was schizophrenic.)
I asked her if dad would be OK as he is very sick. She said he will get a bit better with time and that she is going to take her of him and I don’t have to.
She suddenly started drinking coconut water from a brown coconut. She also started putting on red lipstick, and she passed the lipstick to me. I was confused, but then I smelled the smell of the lipstick and it smelled exactly like what her make-up drawer in the bathroom smelled like when I was a kid.
I asked her if I should continue things with my ex or not. She said he is a good person, and if I want him in my heart, I can. She showed me a glimpse of us getting married. I felt such a huge happiness in me.
She told me to say yes to many things in Madrid (I have recently moved here).
I asked her some advice about a contract I might sign with an acting agent. She told me to make sure it ends after a year so I can re-evaluate.
5-2: Practice connecting with another daydream beginning
I saw my mom; this time she was dressed as an angel.
I asked her loads of questions and got the following answers.
“Are you ok with me spending your money?” “Yes, but be a bit careful.”
“Are you always with me?” “Yes, I am always right behind you. I was even with you the night you went to sleep at home before I died.”
“Will I be OK financially?” “I will always guide you so you are.”
“What is your life like there?” “I play all the instruments I want, and I can do whatever I want.”
“Will I have a family?” She showed me I would have a daughter.
“How was it when you passed away?” “The kitchen floor was a bit cold and hard. I could hear the neighbor’s dog barking and was thinking how crazy it is that others are just going about their daily life while I am here dying.”
I asked for validation. She showed me my best friend planning to buy a house and pull out last minute.
Stage 6: Practice entering the afterlife communication without the narration guidance
I saw my mom wearing a Guatemalan jacket which she had many years ago. She was also a bit fatter in her face. She looked exactly like when I was kid, before she lost so much weight. She was wearing two red pins in her hair like she would always do back then. We were sitting on a bench at the lake we have been at in a previous connection.
She said there is a book I am supposed to read. I asked if it was the one I just bought. She said no. She said I would know once I find the book.
She had a very important message for me. She said she is in touch with a Guatemalan cousin on my dad’s side of the family who died and that I should pass this training to his youngest sister.
I asked if I would be OK financially. She said yes that money would follow me.
I told her I am stressed about a contract I am negotiating. She said I should go out for a coffee and cheesecake like I had planned to and that she would be there with me in that moment.
She made pizza appear. I feel like she was again telling me not to diet too strictly.
She said I should definitely continue my dancing, and she showed me I would be performing somewhere.
In the end, I decided not to ask anything anymore. I just wanted to lay my head on her shoulder and hug her while sitting next to her, which I did. I felt my nose, forehead, and eyes melt comfortably into that big Guatemalan jacket she was wearing, and it felt so good.
Stage 7: Practice entering the afterlife communication with no assistance
Later I connected with her again. I was a bit stressed about things at that moment. I started talking to her about all my worries (related to work and some admin I’m doing). While doing so, I started feeling a pain in my left armpit area! I asked her why I was feeling this pain? And she said (negative) thoughts in that plane manifest very quickly. She helped me relax and the pain slowly subsided. She gave me the same tea and honey brew again! I told her I feel so alone on Earth. She said I am never alone and in fact all of my ancestors are with me all the time! I also asked her if this is really her. She showed me our old brown sugar pot which we used to have at home and she said I would soon come across one exactly like that (as a validation)!
In an earlier connection, she showed me our good friend was staring at a canvas in her room. The canvas had something to do with travel/adventure. I asked her about it and she said she has a canvas of an African tribal lady in her room. She sent me a picture of it and it was the same size and hanging on the same spot as my mom had shown me in my connection!
The connections feel so good. It feels so peaceful and nice to be there. Even when I don’t have anything else to say or ask, it feels so nice just to be around my mom for a while. I mean it feels so real when I am in it that I always wanna stay for a while.
