Scrim: In the theater a scrim is a curtain that appears to the audience as an opaque backdrop at the rear of the stage. When a scene is lit behind this backdrop, the scrim becomes transparent.
After-death communication lights up the scene beyond the scrim that separates life from death. In a flash, it can dispel any illusions we have that nothing exists beyond death (or that what exists is somehow unfortunate), dispelling both our fears about death and our concerns for the welfare of our deceased beloveds.
Today’s blog begins a series on the enormous diversity of ways in which our dear dead ones can light up the scene beyond that scrim. Each experience (and I include a few that happen prior to a death) has actually occurred and has revealed meaning to those involved. In his book, The Map of Heaven, Eben Alexander calls “…meaning, the language of the spiritual world…” These
contacts speak the language of meaning and sometimes require translation to be fully understood.
We may receive contact as sensations in our bodies, or as goose bumps, which I like to call “truth bumps.”
If we meditate, do mantras, or pray—Our beloveds may arrive in any manner while we are engaged in our spiritual practice.
If we’re doubters—We may experience contacts so profound our worldview is transformed.
If we’ve been unable to attend a funeral, we may receive any kind of contact—a dream or an experience in nature—that reassures us the person holds no grudge.
A car may be flooded with someone’s scent when they’ve not been in it for months.
Our cell phone may flash the number of our dead beloved as though they had called.
If we’re in danger without our awareness—A verbal warning like “Slow down” or “Watch out” may come just in the nick of time.
A message may come from lyrics or the timing of a meaningful song on the radio. Music may bring on awareness of someone’s presence.
After a death, a clock may stop repeatedly at a time which, when examined, has personal meaning. Once that meaning is understand, the clock may never stop again.
I would love to hear how your dead beloveds have lit up the scene beyond the scrim. I invite you to share your experiences with me at http://www.AnnieMattingley.com. Just click “Share A Story” in the menu to write about your after-death communication. If you’d prefer to tell me your story verbally, let me know that and we can arrange a phone call.
