Saturday 9: Dying to Know

1. What do you believe happens when we die? I am glad you asked, I have always thought/hoped that the people who have gone before you come and take you to the light. I always think abut What Dreams May Come and wonder if it is something like that.

2. Do you consider yourself religious? I do not consider myself religious. I am much more spiritual than religious as I believe in many things. I think there are good points to all religions and we should appreciate whatever moves us.

3. Do you believe in ghosts? I don't believe in white sheets floating around but more in the energy that may be left behind by someone's presence.

4. Do you believe that people live on other planets? It does seem impossible that we are ALONE. It is something that I am interested in but think that we would have seen something by now to prove this fact.

5. Have you ever seen something abnormal? Sure, there is strangeness all around us but abnormal, no. Who is to say what is normal for someone?

6. Do you believe in reincarnation? I like to think that we could be reincarnated. If you ever have the chance to read Many Lives, Many Masters you will too.

7. Have you ever witnessed a miracle? What I think is a miracle may not be a miracle to you. I think it was a miracle that I grew a penis inside my body while pregnant with my son. I also think it is crazy to think that two people have sex and create life.

8. Is there a person living or dead that influences your philosophies? My mother who is dead for the past 30 years influences me everyday. My husband in a sense, influences me more than anyone else.

9. Is there a work of fiction that closely matches your spiritual beliefs? I guess there could be but at the moment I can't think of anything.


  1. I think you are new to SAt-9. So welcome. I am not at all religious. But, when I saw the movie "What Dreams May Come" I honestly thought, if there is an after-life, I think (or hope) it would be like that. Have a great weekend!

  2. I spent my youth going to Sunday School every week for 7 years at an Anglican (Protestant) Church.

    I've lived a life full of torment, depression, violence, addiction, chronic illness, pain and lots of awful decisions.

    I've always believed in God but not necessarily in organized religion per say. I think I've been to church twice as an adult and only then to be with my mother.

    I have prayed, deeply, out loud, tears flowing kind of prayers twice in my life and each time God has come to me. I pray on a daily basis, but these prayers came in really tough times.

    The most recent time I was visited by God; I was so ill with depression and physical pain, I just couldn't imagine going on. We had a dog at that time and he was on my bed with me, he comforted me greatly and I believe knew I was in trouble. I started to pray, out loud, tears, gut wrenching praying and in that moment God came to me through my dog (no I'm really not a nutbar, this really did happen and honestly, people are allowed their opinions, only God and I know what occurred that day)

    God showed me Heaven that day. He showed me a lush, warm (warm not in a heat way, but in an envelopment of love warmth way), peaceful place; a place where depression, anxiety and physical pain don't exist. A place where there is no fear and total comfort and unconditional love.

    I believe with all of my heart that that is where I will go after I pass and God's reason for showing me this was to let me know that I would be ok in the end; that the emotional and physical pain would indeed be over.

    Wow, this is tres personal, but your post caught my eye and I needed to comment!
