You sure nailed that on the head 73Shovel!
With what we have experienced with the spirits we know and have met over the past 25 years in this house alone, we know there is more to it than what people really think they understand about it.
There is nothing lonely, or really sad about passing, unless it is in some traggic and unexpected way, they want to be where they are and do pretty much as they did prior to their death. Some finish things they didn't get to, because they can now, with freedom of movement. Heck ya don't have to pay for things and you don't have to eat or buy clothes. We know many spirits that are quite happy being on the otherside. We have met many that died traggic deaths, and are quite upset or very confused. We have helped them understand what has happened, they calm down and accept it and usually move on to where they wish to go from there.
Crossing over or telling a spirit to go to the light....thats not it, your actual passing is the white light and the crossing over. It takes place at the time of death. Moving on to your next destination is the only other step to take. For some it may take more time to understand what to do once they have passed, that is all it is.
There are those people who claim to have all these past life experiences but yet are afraid of the otherside. If they had these lives they would have no fear of it, that knowledge and feelings are there in your soul if you have. That understanding of the otherside comes thru for those who have truly been there. Its really quite awesome. Knowing how to cross to the otherside comes almost naturally and you can even do it as you are in this life living. That is part of the so called astro travel experience in IMO. Past knowledge is the key to many things we do in this life, we learn from life to life and come back to try again and not make the same mistakes. We are to learn and continue to learn and grow ever stronger. We also have free will. We are not destine to stay and haunt a place because we have to as a punishment, we do because we wish to do so for the most part.
Open your mind to this that I have said and go past it and you will see...
