What happens when you die, is there an afterlife?

“What happens when you die, is there an afterlife?” A question I asnwered on Quora

New Q & A iconWhat happens when you die question comes up a lot.

I can tell you what I have researched and therefore believe.

Yes there is an afterlife. We are spiritual beings.

The evidence from Near-death studies, children recalling past lives and the work of mediums all help to convince me of the reality of the afterlife.

If you study the matter you will see that it makes more sense to our existence than if there is no afterlife.

If you want to know what happens, I suggest you have a read of my book, Life and Death: Making Sense of It. You can buy the book most places online or get a paperback via bookshops. You can get the Introduction and, currently, Chapter 2 for FREE here

    so, if I read your book, I will have solid proof science of a soul in the afterlife. I believe there are souls on what is called the other side, also if we could have reached a soul we would have already happened, i talked to my father we discussed about his passing and that if he could show a sign he would. my father is more interested in finding his wife on the other side. Sometimes just because we can doesn’t mean we should open a door of such uncertainty. somr doors should remain closed. I know if my father could contact me, he would we are very close.

    • Well you are entitled to your belief – and in many respects, with such matters, belief is the best we can hope for within our physical limitations.

      What you might consider is that there is no need to go to the Other Side looking for souls. They are on this side already. Consider you are a soul having a physical body – your Earthsuit – that allows you the experience being here in this world.

      “Solid proof!” I don’t know what your version of solid proof is. I don’t use such words in my article or book. But in my Life and Death book, I do offer the findings of research in the areas associated with afterlife – that I discussed in the article. And these do give validation to the existence of soul.

      You have to make your own mind up about what you believe. Meanwhile I couldn’t disagree more with your notion re “some doors should remain closed” – that is what most of us are already believing and it is why so many of us live in ignorance.
