Spiritual Journey of
Life in the Spirit World
The spirit world, or where spirits live (without
physical bodies), is the true home of all spirits
(souls). The soul was created there and it returns there
(after each material existence and then stays there upon
its final purification).
While in the spirit world, each spirit goes to find
others like itself. The good gravitate towards those who
are good, and those with evil or malicious inclinations,
gravitate to those who are like themselves.
Above all, the spirits who have already made tremendous
intellectual, moral and spiritual progress, are in
charge of all those inferior to themselves, and by the
force of their will, they can control all of the other
spirits. Everything is strictly controlled. Nothing
happens without their permission nor without the final
permission of the Creator, Who has power above all
creation, whether spiritual or material.
As spirits journey through each of their material
existences and then return again to the spirit world,
how they have spent their material life and their final
physical and mental conditions at its end, can determine
what condition they may find themselves upon their
Spirits generally need time to adjust back to life in
the spirit world after their stay in the material world.
This adjustment can be long or short depending on how
aware or knowledgeable the spirit is regarding spiritual
matters, how morally evolved it is, and there are other
factors as well. Upon their arrival, some spirits need
what they see as hospital care and medicine, some just
need peaceful surroundings, and some are put temporarily
into what we may call a long spiritual sleep for their
own benefit. Material life is very difficult and the
spirit may need much rest from it.
But, the perception of time for spirits is very
different compared to perception of time in the material
world. A spirit could have died many centuries ago in
your time, but the spirit may feel it has only just
arrived in the spirit world.
Upon return to the spirit world, each spirit is received
by their superior and loving spirit guides (sometimes
called guardian angels), plus relatives and friends who
care about them (from present and past lives) who have
arrived before them. At times, the returning spirit, in
its temporary confusion upon returning, cannot perceive
these spirits who are watching over them. These caring
spirits, help the returning spirit as they are able,
according to their own moral, spiritual, and
intellectual level. It is a homecoming for the spirit
who has been away in the material world for a short time
(compared to the eternal life of the soul) and has
finally returned to its true home in the spirit world.
