I have always found restrictive all the “rules” that are imposed by different religions.It would be interesting to combine all of the rules of all of the religions and see what action the individual is able to make on their own.

I do not personally believe in contact of those who have made their transition, however, I would not tell someone they couldn’t try. If someone was spending a lot of money on a charlatan I might help them acknowledge the lack of results and help them heal the feeling of loss and need for the person’s presence to feel whole. In the end I would keep communication with the individual open so they would feel welcome in my life.

Our teaching is that the eternal consciousness of an individual moves on to a new level of consciousness when done with this body. We do not teach you can communicate with these different levels, but it is another thing entirely to tell someone they “can’t” or “shouldn’t” try.

It is through teaching the power and wholeness of the individual that supports them in trying times and helps them realize that their true support comes through the Universal Creative Power that is responsible for all creation. When I realize I am totally and completely supported in this moment, have access to the wisdom of all time; I become empowered to move forward confidently in life and trusting of the outcome.
