Have you ever wondered where the soul goes when the body dies? I believe that the soul essence or authentic (original) soul goes back to the frequency of its creation. A soul may return to the dimension, star, or planet where it was created and where the soul family awaits. We call this “crossing over” or going into the light.
However, the astral body that is shed during death typically stays in the earth plane with all its imprinting and karmic patterning. It may stay with the decaying body, or in a dwelling, or with an object that the “deceased” person enjoyed. It can roam around the Earth and seemingly “haunt” people. These are the apparitions some people see.
It is important for the astral body and karmic patterns to be cleared before death. But there is not need to wait until you are on your death bed to start the clearing process. Daily clearing is recommended–especially for empaths who transmute a lot of energy for others. Light language carries frequencies that can clear soul imprints and astral debris. That’s why I feel it is so important for people to activate this “remembering” of the soul’s pure essence or vibration; and to regularly use this spiritual tool.
Our personality/ego is a repeated incarnation after incarnation like a copy of a copy. This is why we are affected by what happened in past lives. The soul picks up the “used” astral body when it reincarnates or comes through the astral plane into the new body. Part of the goal of being in the Earth plane is to clear the astral body of its imprints and former experiences. Unfortunately, many souls pile on more pain and suffering through the trauma they encounter during the developmental years. This is why some souls bypass the infant and childhood years and come in as walk-ins later on. (Read about walk-ins and soul exchanges.) These souls still have to deal with the astral programming of the host body and human collective consciousness, but most have an awareness of their mission.
Through our hundreds of lifetimes on Earth we accumulate a lot of “junk” in our soul records, which are partly contained in the astral realm/body. Many times, the version of personality that is expressed in an Earth incarnation is like a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy. You know how many distortions a duplicate copy can pick up on its path through the copy machine. Debris, ink blots, dirty lenses on the machine, etc. The 20th copy is not going to be as clear or as legible as the original. The same is true with a soul that is coming in with a lot of past life imprints on the astral body. I do a lot of this kind of clearing in my energy treatment sessions. Even in my coaching sessions, Spirit may suddenly arise to break through and clear imprints that litter the mind and emotions of the person I’m working with.
Some people are called to do the work of a gatekeeper, which means they assist souls that are coming in and out of incarnation with connecting or disconnecting the soul with the body. A gatekeeper may also be called to help clear astral imprints of the personality/ego/psyche that souls leave behind in the earth plane. Some may transmute energy (raise the frequency on the polarity scale) for the living (those in body) and “deceased” (those who are dis-embodied). This work of transmutation is many times done unknowingly, which causes many empathic people to feel drained, fatigued, physically sick or in a state of emotional/mental discord.
