The concept of Hell seems to have gone out of fashion in most spiritual belief systems, the exception still being fundamentalist Christian dogma.
The idea of Hell has largely been rejected because of the inherent contradiction that a loving, forgiving, compassionate God would never judge and sentence a soul to eternal damnation.
This is perhaps an aspect of our societal rejection of a supreme parental deity that indiscriminately hands out rewards and punishments for human behavior, a divine trait that in hindsight seems very anthropomorphic (having human characteristics).
However, most modern accounts, from channeled material to actual descriptions from near-death experience have informed us that the experience of Hell does exist, but that it is neither eternal nor a divine punishment. It is simply a transitional experience of self-purification. Between the earth realm and the heavenly realms, there exists two hellish realms, the first being an earthbound realm. Consider some of these observations from near-death experiences:
“Hell refers to levels of negative thought-forms that reside in close proximity to the earth realm. It is where we go to work out, or remain within, our hang-ups, addictions, fears, guilt, angers, rage, regrets, self-pity, arrogance, or whatever else blocks us from the power of our own light.” (P.M.H. Atwater)
“The difference between life on earth and life in the spirit is that your spirit world corresponds to your inner nature.” (Nora Spurgin)
What we have sown in our human incarnation, we reap in the afterlife. This is not a legal system of punishments for sins, but rather an organic process in which we are responsible for creating our own experience. If we embody love, we experience love. If we embody hate, we experience hate. On Earth, we have plenty of psychological tactics to hide from ourselves, deceive ourselves, to justify our selfishness or evil deeds. In the spirit world we experience our true inner nature without any ability to hide from it.
“In the spirit world, everyone lives in the kind of heaven or hell that they have prepared for themselves while on earth.” (Arthur Yensen)
“The general rule of thumb is this: hellish life, hellish afterlife – heavenly life, heavenly afterlife. Death will not change a hellish life into a heavenly afterlife, nor does it change a heavenly life into a hellish afterlife.” (Dr. Melvin Morse)
Perhaps one way to visualize this earthbound lesser Hell is as a water filter. After death, if our souls are relatively pure we simply pass through this filter without friction, without delay. However, if our souls have impurities, if we contain heavy metals and toxins, we are stuck in that filter until the impurities are left behind, until we are freed from our self-imposed chains. Unfortunately, we sometimes cling to our pain, our hate, our anger, our self-destruction, our darkness as an aspect of our ego or personality, something that we simply will not release. Because there is little or no sense of time in the afterlife, Hell might last for a second yet seem like an eternity.
“What people call hell is really a spiritual time-out condition in which souls reflect and work out the things that blocked them from the power of their own light.” (P.M.H. Atwater)
“In hell, we have the opportunity to either revel in our folly or come to grips with the reality of consequences — that every action has a reaction, what is inflicted on another can be returned in kind. This is not a punishment for our sins but a confrontation with any distortion of our sense of values and priorities.” (P.M.H. Atwater)
Here is the catch – while many damaged souls may spend a short sojourn in these unpleasant earthbound realms to confront the reality of their negative beliefs and behavior, other souls actually revel in their “folly” and decide that it is better to rule in darkness than face the Light. These souls dig themselves even deeper into darkness, perhaps into what many near-death testimonies commonly refer to as the “Void,” a realm of complete and profound darkness.
There are various degrees of darkness to this realm, and it is darker and denser at the center than at its outer fringes. The closer we are to the outer edges, the more interaction there is with others in the realm. (Edgar Cayce)
“After death people gravitate into homogenous groups according to the rate of their soul’s vibrations much like throwing a small pebble into a threshing machine. It goes into the box that fits its proper size and weight. After death, we are sorted by the high or low vibrations of our soul. Everyone goes where they fit in! High vibrations indicate love and spiritual development, while low vibrations indicate debasement and evil. All one has to do is to love so unselfishly that their soul-vibrations rise high enough to fit into heaven.” (Arthur Yensen)
There are barriers at every level of ascension in place to keep the low low, and to challenge the high to remember it is high.
In the afterlife, we are drawn toward those who share our vibration level. As in a glass of pond water, the sludge settles on the bottom of the glass, the clear liquid rises to the top. This is an organic process that is guided and protected by guardians.
Over the past few decades, the internet and collective humanity has become much more aware of the existence of dark souls. We call them by many names: the new world order, luciferians, satanists, cabal, illuminati, bloodlines, occult elite, and the powers that be/were. And we have become much more aware of the unimaginable scope of their darkness: mind control, pedophilia, ritual abuse, torture, murder, infanticide, cannibalism, and things that sane human beings simply cannot fathom, a darkness too deep for many of us to penetrate.
Our Universe seems to be constructed to encourage accelerated polarization of darkness and light. The process of ascension is more like a spiral than a staircase. Those souls who choose darkness spiral down into an addiction of deeper darkness. Those who choose light spiral up by releasing attachments.
When there is very little light, we say it is dark. So-called dark forces are groups of souls that have very little light. Why? Because they have denied it in themselves, either consciously or unconsciously. This is not to say that such dimly lit souls cannot wreak incredible havoc; indeed they have for millions of years. They live in a world of illusions, spun by dreams of fear and hate, but as long as they believe in this nightmare, the nightmare will continue, albeit in one form or another. – Sal Rachele
These dark or dimly lit souls have created a Hell for themselves. According the psychic Edgar Cayce, this Void of darkness was not fashioned by the One Infinite Creator – it only came into existence as a consequence of these beings who created this darkness for themselves. Separation consciousness created its own Hell.
After death, one may find themselves in a particular degree of darkness that most closely corresponds to the degree of the absence of love in one’s life. Outer darkness is not a punishment. It is a region which operates lawfully for the benefit of those who are there. This region is not a realm which was created for any soul to experience, but one which came about as a consequence of the negative activity of souls in creation. So great has been the desire for self, so monumental across time and space has been the selfishness of some of God’s creatures, that this realm is the creation or manifestation of their own collective activities. Outer darkness and the reality with which it is associated were created and are held in place by collective self-interest. (Edgar Cayce)
Service-to-Self beings created Hell for themselves to experience separation from the One Infinite Creator, so that they could experience themselves as creator gods. This is the allegorical story of Lucifer’s fall from Heaven. However, the fall is not the end of the story. The darkness is allowed to “lawfully” operate as long as it provides an opportunity for spiritual rehabilitation and growth.
The problem for some souls is they prefer darkness rather than the light for one reason or another. For some of these souls, their only hope is reincarnation. This is because it is not possible for any soul to be confined in the earthbound and Void realms forever. God is infinitely merciful and would never abandon anyone to their own spiritual agony for too long; however, God allows souls to remain there only as long as it suits their spiritual growth. (The Void and the Near-Death Experience)
Thus the only exit out of the Void is either by turning to the Light or through reincarnation – spiritual rehabilitation or spiritual growth. Neither path is a “get out of jail free card.” The soul must choose a path to confront it own distortion and balance its karma. This inevitably requires many more lifetimes in a reincarnation cycle. At some point in eternity the dark soul can choose to change the path it is on and work its way back into the Light.
As I have written before, in the past few years there has been a paradigm shift in spiritual beliefs, veering away from more traditional beliefs about reincarnation/the afterlife, toward a belief system the espouses a soul catching net, or a false Light that manages a reincarnation process that serves to keep us imprisoned in The Matrix.
There is a misconception that many people have about reincarnation. Some assume that after death, people immediately reincarnate without inhabiting various spirit realms in between earth lives. Near-death experience accounts affirm that we do not immediately reincarnate after death. The reason is because time does not exist in the spirit realms. (Source)
This belief system seems to focus exclusively upon the theory of soul entrapment of human light workers by interdimensional dark forces. Yet I have found that this theory completely neglects to address the circumstance of dark souls, luciferians, illuminati (Service-to-Self entities) upon death.
Proponents of this belief system often advise their followers that they should avoid “stepping into the light” when they are faced with their own transition after death, faced with the concept of a life review, faced with a decision to spiritually move forward. As such, I find this spiritual advice to be highly suspect. In whose interest is it that we not “step into the light?”
I get that when a person passes and their spirit is released from their human, 3D body, they are greeted and do see a light. I see that if someone does pass, and they go to the light, they are reincarnated with a fresh slate to create memories (unless they learn how to pass through and keep portions of their memories in more easily accessible DNA). A spirit has a choice to go to the light, and for various reasons (not ready to reincarnate, want to wait on other members of their soul pact to pass, unresolved earth issues, want to stay and guide) they may choose to to stay. Sometimes when they stay they become sort of “attached” to the earthly plane, losing their vision of the light. When that happens, they feel lost, and when they are ready to move on, they feel disconnected as to how. These spirits need coached, guided or directed to move on (and in an upward direction) to the light (which feels like a sun??), and from there they can start the incarnation process.. (Focus Sessions)
What proponents of this belief system fail to acknowledge is that the same reincarnation system that they reject out of hand is what serves to quarantine the darkness to the lowest realms of the Universe. The rub is that each one of us personally believes the he or she shouldn’t be quarantined here either. I guarantee you that the illuminati feel the same way. This concept of soul imprisonment on Earth, reflects the illuminati frustration with their own spiritual imprisonment.
Consider the ultimate technological goals of the illuminati on Earth are immortality and transhumanism. Why? Could it be they know where they go upon death, they know that their souls return, and they are determined to escape the torment of the Void by any means.
Many sources have suggested that demonic entities are fearful of incarnating into our world as they would be subject the same law of amnesia. And so they fight to enter our world by other means, by soul possession. Why are they so desperate to enter our world? Perhaps to escape the darker impotence of the Void.
“Without physical bodies, feelings of hate and fear are intensified as souls [in hell] vainly try to hide from their enemies. Their only hope is to reincarnate. Then unfortunately when they do, they may forget all about their torment in hell and again lead lives of greed and tyranny. This miserable cycle can continue forever unless they find salvation in one of their lifetimes. Such people really need a savior, since they are not able to help themselves. I’m sure Christ incarnated to help them because he said, ‘I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.'” (Arthur Yensen)
“The law of karma demands that we meet every bit of our karmic debts. However, an even greater law exists, the law of forgiveness. If we wrong someone and that person forgives us, when the day comes that we approach God, we realize our memories which are incompatible with God, but forgiveness removes the barrier of separation. The law is so precise (what one gives one receives; no exceptions) that if we begin forgiving others, we begin to receive forgiveness upon ourselves. Unless, of course, we refuse to forgive ourselves.” (Edgar Cayce)
In Part Two, I will take a step beyond Hell, and explore what a negative Service-to-Self ascension might look like – Hell on steroids.
