Question: Can you explain about the process of death? What happens at our time of death?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2016.
This is a complicated topic that I cannot go into depth with here. Basically, what happens is that when the body stops functioning, which normally means that the heart stops and the breathing stops, then you will start to detach yourself from the body. The more spiritually aware you are, the more you are aware of ascended master teachings and the more you have made the calls for the resolution of your psychology and the overcoming of attachment to anything on earth, the easier it will be for you to leave the body behind.
There are many, many people on earth who are very attached to the physical body and the life they have had. For such people it can be very difficult to leave the body behind. This is why they sometimes become what we call discarnate beings. Because they cannot leave the body, they cannot leave the physical octave and therefore they cannot move on into the light that many people have seen when they have had near-death experiences.
If you have read about near-death experiences, you will know that people experience going into a tunnel, moving through the tunnel and then moving into a light where they are sometimes greeted with relatives who have died before them, or spiritual beings to whom they felt close during their lifetime. The ideal scenario is, of course, that people move on so they can receive the guidance to find their proper station where they can grow until it is time for their next embodiment.
It is important, as a spiritual person, to realize that the body is only a vehicle you are using for a time. The life you are having right now is not an end in itself, it is only a part of your ongoing process of the growth and unfoldment of your lifestream. Especially if you know that death is approaching, it is very important to work on your attachments to this lifetime, to make the calls but also to work with yourself consciously. Look at where you have attachments, look at where you have unfulfilled desires and then, as much as possible, let go of them. When the body stops functioning, you are not attached to it, you do not seek to stay with it. You turn around and you recognize the finality that this lifetime has ended and now it is time to move into the next phase of your conscious growth, your conscious evolution. Then, you move into that tunnel, you move to your right station and you follow the beings who are there to greet you so that you can find your right station between embodiments.
