Do I believe in an afterlife?
Hello everyone, welcome back to the Dream With Dan Blog. Thanks for stopping by. A bit of a heavy one for you all today, but one that I know is on a lot of people’s mind: what happens when we die?
How do I know it’s on your mind? Well firstly because…it’s on all our minds. Death is the only certainty of the human condition. Secondly, because it was one of the questions that my co-hosts and I were asked, over on the LOA Today podcast as part of our FaceBook Q&A episode.
I should stress that there are great positives about death. Being the only species on Earth that can, apparently, understand this fundamental nature about ourselves – we have been driven to great achievements.
Think about it: it’s the finite nature of life that ultimately gets you off your backside in the morning.
If we had forever (or thought we did) we’d just put things off, ad infinitum.
So death is a driving force in your life everyday, albeit perhaps not expressed in quite those terms. For example: death being part of the ‘life-cycle’ of the day (in that it ends at midnight) is a motivating force to get done, what you need to get done. We are aware of some level of urgency and a need to cultivate the type of life that we want, before it is over.
What do I think happens when we die?
For me, death is just a part of the cycle. I have found great comfort in understanding that it’s not the end of the story. It’s more like moving to the next scene.
Walt, my co-host, then pointed to the oft quoted opening speech from Shakespeare’s As You Like It:
All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages…
I suppose one can think of it this way. Certainly, as Walt also pointed out: in the eyes of Source Energy, our time on Earth is a mere blip when viewed in the fullness of time.
In that regard it is as though human consciousness is a performance. For who’s entertainment, I’m not quite sure. Perhaps ours?
Past Life Regression is something I work on and have found to yield results that, I think, are worth paying attention to. All that proves though, is what we already know: whenever and however we cross the threshold, we don’t do so consciously.
The hypnotic state is a way in which a lot of people relate/connect to the state of death and the ‘beyond’, but we can’t really know. This is clearly by design, whether divine or otherwise, and so we aren’t meant to know!
I actually take great comfort in this. Clearly, whoever or whatever designed us, knew that if we had certainty about what happens when we die; we’d waste our lives.
I know that some folks have had near-death experiences. Folks like my dear, dear friend Dr. Mary Helen Hensley – who suffered a near fatal car crash in her formative years, that caused her to have an out-of-body experience and connected her profoundly to an innate sense of frequency.
She now offers world-class teaching on the subject, and wholistic healing practices that are backed not only by her experiences and the whole field of frequency study; but by science as well.
Her description of what death is like, is a really great one. She describes it as being like doing a hard days work, getting home, stripping off and leaving your dirty clothes by the washing machine as you go for a nice shower.
The last thing you’re thinking about is your dirty clothes!
Well, when she had her out-of-body experience, Dr. Mary thought of her body in the same terms: she wasn’t missing or pining for it. There was an immense sense of calm and peace with what was happening.
She understood that, while in our physical form, there is a ceiling on the frequencies that we can experience. once she was outside of that, the frequency shifted and she was suddenly able to perceive time and other frequencies concurrently.
Now she has a whole lot more to say on the subject, and if that’s of interest to you (and why wouldn’t it be?!?) please head over to her website here: www.maryhelenhensley.com
She also did a wonderful episode of The Good News Guide with our beautiful friend here at Dream With Dan: Lisa Winneke.

I think the fundamental truth about what happens when we die is that we may come back, we may not. We have no way of knowing, so accept that, live a good life, be a good human, always be educating yourself and eat your vegetables!
Whether we put ourselves here in order to carry out a preordained performance, a divine being did or any of the other infinite possibilities: don’t be fearful of what happens when we die!
Instead; use the knowledge of this uncertainty to motivate yourself to be the very best version of yourself that you can be, here and now.
Thank you so much for reading this blog, from the bottom of my heart! If you enjoyed this, I produce regular Do It With Dan blogs, podcasts and videos. I have three books published now: Stepping Beyond Intention, The Dreamer’s Manifesto and From Time-to-Time (a really great book on time mastery). All of these are here to serve you and make you part of the journey as well.
