DEATH IS A MIRACLE:
A Channeled Message

Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God
Death is a miracle. People often say that birth is a miracle, and certainly it is,
because the system through which we come to earth through each other’s bodies is miraculous.
But death is an equivalent miracle.
In order for the cycle of birth/reincarnation/death to continue, there must be a revolving door;
a system of ingress and egress.
It is a brilliantly designed system.
There is great labor in death, as there is in birth, for it is not easy to die or to be born. It’s a very long journey that cannot be measured in space or time, because it is a journey between dimensions. Before birth, the soul does not occupy the body, but is attached remotely, similar to the way in which your guides are attached to you across dimensions. The soul knows that it has chosen that body, and so it is very much involved in the growth and nurturing of the fetus. Plans are made for that body before conception about how it will be formed, whether or not it will be born at all, if it will be healthy or sick, whether the mother will survive childbirth, and limitless other possibilities.
The soul is in a supervisory role, working in concert with the souls of the mother, father, siblings and others affected by the life of the soul about to be born. The body itself is on autopilot, focusing only on being formed, supported by the intention of the souls around it. During gestation, the soul is inside and outside at the same time, moving freely between dimensions, though this can’t really be explained or measured in physical terms like “inside” or “outside.” The body is operated by remote control in a sense, until it is born, at which time it is required that the soul be completely integrated with it.
Once the body takes its first breath, the soul becomes integrated, and cannot separate completely again until death. It can separate in a limited way, journeying away from the body through dreams, meditation, out-of-body or near-death experiences, but it is always connected by something that could best be described as a luminous fiber.
Dying is a mirror image of the remote relationship between the soul and the body during the conception, gestation and birth process. When a person is dying, the soul begins to separate, and sort of rewinds in the opposite direction of what it did during the birth phase. The soul starts moving toward the supervisory position again, toward remote control, peeling away from the indelible connection it had to the body during physical life. The soul starts to move back to the remote location, which is of course not a physical location in space, but a different dimension of vibration. When a person dies slowly, this process of gradual separation is very observable.
When a person dies instantly, the same thing happens, but it is not usually observable. This is a good illustration of the meaning of “metaphysical,” in the sense that activity can be happening on more than one plane simultaneously, and there is a bridge that connects the physical and non-physical worlds. When somebody dies instantly, the intention for that death has already been put into motion. The soul begins to separate from the body, hours, days or weeks before the event, because the soul knows its own intention and is already in the process of manifesting that intention. The body — or the personality/ego — is usually not aware of this, but that is not always the case. Sometimes there is awareness of an impending death.
You have heard stories about people who’ve died violently for example, who had premonitions of that death, or people who just happened to get all their bills paid or put their affairs in order a few weeks before dying in a plane crash. It is a subtle knowing… most of the time the person is not consciously aware of this. If you could talk to people on the Other Side who died suddenly, many would tell you of a subtle shift in their awareness or their behaviors in the hours, days or weeks prior to the death. All deaths, as with all births, are by agreement.
For example, let’s say a soldier dies in a war. The person who killed him, the people who witnessed his death, his family members and even the leaders of the governments sponsoring the war, are part of an alignment of persons, places and events that contribute to that death, in a sort of ripple effect. All these energies are aligning their intention for that moment, for a specific purpose… the expansion and growth of the souls involved in that particular event. All these intentions, energies and manifestations are necessary for a balanced universe.
