There is no status in spiritual realms. It does not matter who you are, or what you have done, each soul on passing into the spiritual realms has to go through the same ritual. That ritual is to be welcomed back home, to rest after life’s journey, and to then “face the hall of mirrors”.
Many souls are of the belief that because they have done good in this incarnation, or given money to good causes, it will pave an easy path for them in the spiritual realms. Yet, no soul is given preference or status. Each soul is treated the same, the murderer and the king! They both stand side by side, waiting to return home. Yes, it may seem very strange, but that is the way it is. All souls chose their own way of learning their life lessons, and all at the end of their life, stand side by side, no different, to each other. All souls who have achieved their destiny and who are ready to return home.
However, the level of vibration you have achieved on the Earth plane is very important to you. The higher you have raised your vibration, the easier it is to adjust to the world of the spiritual realms, and return home. For those who have lived the illusion their entire lives, they find it very hard to let go of that illusion. Because of the close proximity of the spiritual realms and the return ‘home’ from the Earth plane, many souls find it hard to believe they have actually died. For many souls the illusion still exists and it takes some while before the illusion wears off, and the truth is finally revealed.
The spiritual world when you pass over, is so like the Earth plane! It is the true world of illusion on a higher level. Whatever you believed on the Earth plane about life when you die becomes a reality. If you believe there is a man sitting at a gate, waiting to judge you, it is so. If you believe in the devil and have such fear of this, it becomes what you see on your passing over. If you believe there is no life after death, then the shock for you is even greater. These souls cannot believe they ARE dead, and for them the passing over is even harder. There are a team of many, many souls, who work in this area, who are there to help those that passover to our side. They are loving souls who only have compassion and love, and who very gently assist these people to let go of the belief which has permeated their soul memory, their spiritual consciousness. Only when one has faced the Hall of mirrors, can one finally move into the higher realms of dimension where there is only awareness and where all illusion is gone. It is truly a wonderful place.
