After Death States
a full programme of events
At the point of death,
your Etheric Body (also called the Etheric Double, Energy Body or Body of
Prana) will dislocate from your Physical Body and rise out it as your life
energy (Prana), for which this body is a network, withdraws. All your
non-physical principles or bodies are enclosed in the Etheric Body which acts
as an Etheric Envelope. Although we canít perceive it, the Etheric Envelope is
actually physical. The Etheric Body is also known as the Etheric Double because
it looks like you do. This is a function of the Model Body
term Linga Sarira) which act
as a template.
The Etheric Body and
accompanying principles will at first be connected by a lifeline to your
Physical Body and this is often described as a silver chord. The chord will
break and this will leave your Physical Body without life energy and irrevocably
separated from your non-physical principles. From the physical point of view,
you are now dead.
However from your point of
view events continue. A review of the life just lived will have begun as your
Etheric Body dislocated and this will continue. The review is objective and
comprehensive and there is an awareness of the effect your life has had on
There is now a brief
period of unconsciousness from which you awake with your non-physical
principles encased in the now moribund Etheric Envelope.
The Death Struggle
principles must now break free from the Etheric Envelope. This usually happens
within a few hours but for anyone who canít accept death and canít let go of
the idea of life, it can take weeks.
O.K. so now youíre out of
the Etheric Envelope and clear of the physical plane.
You are in Kama Loka or
the desire realm which is on the Astral Plane of nature. The attributes of your
last physical life will now dissolve as you move up to the highest level of the
The experience of your
last life will be distilled and assimilated and another review will take place
by your Reincarnating Ego†
Itís not always that
It is possible to be
trapped on the lower levels of the Astral Plane depending on the life just
lived or an inability to let go of physical attachments. These levels can be a
hell of your own making but unlike the Christian Hell, it is not eternal damnation
and you will rise out of it eventually.
Cravings come with you
Cravings addictions and
anger can come with you into Kama Loka and these have to burn out which may
take time. You can experience emotion and think when you first enter Kama Loka
because your Desire and Rational Mind Principle come with you. You may badly
need a cigarette but you have no body to smoke it with.
The Second Death
The essence of the
experience of your past life is now ready to be carried forward by your
You now experience the
second death as you go into the state of bliss known as Devachan. This is a bit
like the Christian concept of Heaven except that it doesnít last forever.
Devachan is a state not a place.
In Devachan all positive
aspirations from the last physical life will be realized but to reap the
benefits of this, you must have laid the groundwork in physical life.
The Devachanic experience
will run its course and you will have to come back into physical incarnation. You
do get some choice about the sort of person you will be and the circumstances
of your rebirth.
So there you have it, a
brief run through of Death to Rebirth and itís certainly a full programme of
