ASK RAYMOND #1: Do our departed loved ones retain their identities in the afterlife?

 

TODAY'S QUESTIONS relate to the continuity of identity in the afterlife. 

Do people who have NDEs report that their loved ones look exactly as they did on earth? 

Is it right to think of our departed loved ones as being as we knew them when they were in this life form?  

If people reincarnate, then how would they continue to appear in apparitional form as we once knew them?

(Note from Lisa: This segment ends a little abruptly. Some of you who watched it wanted to hear a little more about the appearance of our loved ones on the other side. Here are a few comments from me, and Raymond will respond more fully in a future blog.)

Do you know that feeling when you are in a dark room, and someone enters and you just know who it is?

 One of the things, I have heard is that when people encounter their deceased loved ones during an NDE,  often people’s kinesthetic or feeling sense is intensified, and there is a recognition of people  on the energetic level.

They can just feel others. However, that feeling is often associated with the other senses—that is, it is synesthesic. One of the qualities of afterlife experiences is that often it involves the blending of the senses, eg: “My uncle was there, and I could feel him, and it was as if he were the color blue and his voice had this silver, like the metal, quality as he spoke. I could hear him, feel him, see him in this kind of combined sensory experience.”
