There are myriad unseen people living in the Earth School environment without bodies called “earthbounds.” They no longer have a body, but their spirit remains on earth. Being still attuned to earth, they can walk, sit, ride, attend gatherings such as church services, and otherwise participate in activities unseen by people still living on earth. If they advanced to the next level, they would leave the earth realm and participate in that level’s experiences and activities. Their advancement is an act of will, however.
People may be earthbound because of feeling shocked after a sudden traumatic death, because of false religious beliefs about the afterlife, because of a desire to vicariously enjoy earth’s pleasures, or because of intense emotions of anger, fear, love, resentment, jealousy, guilt, or remorse. These sentiments keep the person fixated. They live in the earth environment in a dimension where time does not really exist.[i] As a result, the earthbound may be so totally immersed in the illusion, unable to see alternatives, that the person may stay in that state for centuries. Counselors and others continually work to try to get through to them, but since the earthbounds are still in the earth realm, they do not see or hear the counselors, just as people in Earth School do not see or hear guides or loved ones.
Sometimes people living in Earth School called “rescuers” are able to help the earthbounds realize what has happened to them to open their perception to the counselors and loved ones who have been trying to reach them.
Earthbounds leave the Earth School environment when they realize they are no longer in bodies or when they come to appreciate the benefits of going to the next stage of their eternal lives and giving up on the reasons they tarried on earth. The transitioning out of the Earth School environment into the environment of the life after this life is termed the “second death.” It would be better to call it the “second transition.” There is no “death” involved.
The transition from one attunement to another is entirely in the Mind and seamless. Earthbounds have free will and may decide to stay in the Earth School environment as long as they want to stay. As a result, some earthbounds remain in that condition for hundreds or thousands of years.[ii]
