Excerpt from "The Top Ten Things Dead People Want To Tell You"

by Mike Dooley

The following excerpt has been reprinted with permission from The Top Ten Things Dead People Want to Tell You by Mike Dooley. The book can be purchased at www.hayhouse.com.

What Happens When You Die

Well, first of all, you won’t. Which is all you really have to know about death and why it’s the first thing “dead” people want to tell you. Many of them found this hard to believe themselves at first, gazing upon their own funerals, lingering around their old stomping grounds, stunned and amazed as they gestured and shouted to the friends left behind.

There’s an abrupt disconnect, of course, that comes from leaving behind all things time and space and learning to maneuver in the unseen. The nature of this transition depends entirely on the beliefs of the dearly departed at the time of transition, because their beliefs and thoughts carry over to their new environs. Even there, thoughts become things, only they become things bigger and faster, arranged to match the expectations of new arrivals, often in the twinkling of an eye.

Harps, angels, Jesus, Mohamed, Buddha, Krishna, and lots more deities, saints, and whatnot all have energy fragments (not as crude as it sounds) on standby for the constant flow of new arrivals who will be welcomed, scolded, praised, or celebrated in any number of ways based upon the deceased’s anticipated and believed-in scenarios. Elaborate “sets” can be seen floating in cloud settings, golden gates are “assembled,” gardens of Eden are manifested, fiery dens are ignited—whatever. Remember: in illusionary dimensions such as time and space and the afterlife, these “saviors” can be in an unlimited number of “places” at the same “time.” Welcoming committees also include, when appropriate, a cadre of deceased loved ones and those whose lives were affected by the deceased’s life and choices. They all take on the physical form and age that pleased them the most as they gather to welcome and assure newcomers that they have indeed survived and arrived somewhere wonderful.

Time is not an issue; the party can last “weeks.” Space is not an issue; everything seems to exist just for you. Kind of like on earth, if you’ve noticed. Communication is done mostly through a suddenly remembered form of telepathy, which will feel as natural to you as shaking hands once did. Travel is accomplished by willing yourself to wherever you want to go. Friends are found the same way. Thought connects all, is all. You’ll also be thrilled to see that you, too, have taken on the physical form from your life that pleased you the most and that all aches and pains have vanished—and you’ll quickly learn how to change even further. “Limitless” has a new meaning for the deceased.

Loving guides soon appear, glowing, radiant, and joyful. They orient you and answer your questions. They teach you. Remind you. Love you. Show you. Everything becomes clearer. You remember the hopes and intentions of your recent life and why you chose it. You review play by play all that happened. You see how things lined up or didn’t, and why. You’re awed by your power, wisdom, and kindness, saddened by what you missed, mistook, and misunderstood, yet inspired to know you can try again, make amends, and move forward with and into even greater love. Past lives come into view, along with the friends, loves, and lessons they contained. Everything starts making sense. It comes together like the most amazing artistic creation, a masterpiece that boggles your mind with its perfection, and you are humbled to find the paintbrush still in your hand.

Time is not an issue; the party can last “weeks.”
