The veil between dimensions is thin at this time of year. Spirit life is more active here on planet earth and we get a lot more questions about life in spirit. One of the most interesting questions that comes up from time to time is: what can spirit see of the physical lives they left behind? As Gail asks:
Can the dead see what we do day to day, “EVERYTHING”
Says Phil, in response: “I guess it all depends on what purpose a “dead” person might have in wanting to observe what we’re doing. For instance, if a departed soul is stuck inside the veil, they’ll need assistance to move forward to where they need to belong – to the other side, “into the white light” – whatever you want to call it.
I’m sure these souls – these “ghosts” – can see a few things dimly through the shroud of the non-time, but more from an energetic standpoint. In other words, not too clearly at all, with little-to-no way of putting anything into proper context Other souls who have made a clear transition to the other side can most probably see what we’re doing very clearly, but from a place of wisdom that far surpasses all our understanding of what we merely think we might be able to perceive. This is a place of supreme clarity – of knowing our conditions far more clearly than we possibly can while we’re still alive in our fallible bodies.
In other words, while we’re stuck in our bodies on this Earth plane, we are limited to three and maybe four dimensions, and five or maybe six senses – all of which are highly dependent on our physical, mental, and spiritual health for us to be aware of. Einstein postulated that there may well be 23 different dimensions out there, and he may or may not have been talking about dimensions of Spirit.
I’m thinking we should maybe contemplate multiplying the senses we know about, with the dimensions we’re aware of, extrapolating this number into an exponential logarithm we can only dream of, and if entities from that place – out there are watching over me down here – way cool! They would certainly know me much better than I know myself.
Angels, guardian spirits – whatever – they know all about our limitations, our foibles, weaknesses, and troubles with finding our way. They are there – here at the speed of thought – to help us make sense of our lives in the grand scheme of things, so I doubt they are too concerned with what we look like while we’re on the toilet and picking our noses. Maybe if they see us robbing a bank or torturing a defenseless being, they may find a way to show concern and jot it down onto our karmic list of debts we’ll need to pay
back, but otherwise, they’re only there to help.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. That is, until “they” show me how wrong I am. In which case, I reserve my right to be wrong! Peace, Phil the astrologer
Some months after one of my favourite aunts died some years ago, I connected with her on the other side. She was in great spirits, sweeping the floor of her new digs on the other side. As soon as she sensed my presence, she took me to a device like a TV and showed me that she could tune in and see what was happening with her family, wherever they were… she was delighted because in her physical life, her children lived at a distance from her so she could only see them once or twice a year.
However, I know from experience in working with spirit that such clarity is not always possible. While some spirits will tell me to tell their loved ones to talk to them when they need them, “tell them I can hear them when they address me”, I can tell when I check in on some of my clients’ loved ones, they they can only sense whether a thought is vibrating as positive or negative, whether it is loving or not… in fact, some quite desperately ask for prayers and love to be sent to them so they can lift up and be able to move into higher vibrations where they can connect with the folks they left behind.
What I am certain of from my encounters with spirit is that they can sense vibrational frequency. Some see colour and pure energy as opposed to being able to differentiate shape and form. Spirit seems to be able to see where there is an opening for them to manifest or make themselves known – they seem to know who can see them, who they can get a message to… and this can only be explained as an ability to see the energy in and around a person here on planet earth.
Spirit – once arrived in the higher frequencies – can see clearly what is in our hearts, what is truth, what is loving, and what is not… they can see when we are caring for or harming ourselves, or others… but they probably see through what we are wearing, what we had for breakfast, or what kind of car we drive… they may bask in the beauty of our gardens, but not differentiate the flowers from the herbs or the vegetables.
Spirit sees, but not through human eyes. Spirit sees energy, senses vibrational frequency, colours, tones, feelings – they see our souls and the light and dark they contain. Only occasionally, under special circumstances, when they have reached a level of clarity and built enough energy, are they able to – or even interested in – actually seeing form and shape.
Once in spirit, the focus is on spirit and it takes real power to be able to focus on a specific form or shape when you no longer have human eyes.
