There is no death. ~ A Course in Miracles


Heaven by Giovanni di Paolo

NOTE: This post is longer than we usually publish. But I trust you’ll find it useful.

A few weeks ago one of our readers, Christine Disano-Davenport, sent us a letter. She had recently watched a film and read some books about life after death. Though she enjoyed them, they were disturbing to her. As she put it, “…what is bothering me now is that it (the film and books) is shaking my belief about what happens after we make our transition.”

With Christine’s permission to use her name and letter, I’m including below comments from her letter, slightly edited. Our replies follow the comments. (The comments are roughly in the order she wrote them.)

Comment: What is the experience of someone, after they’ve died, who in life had committed murder or had been involved in an abortion?

Reply: There is no guilt or remorse. There is only the recognition that these experiences were ultimately for the highest and best good of all the humans involved. The only judges you ever face are yourselves and other humans.

Comment: Abraham (Esther Hicks) and Kryon (Lee Carroll) have said Hitler, and those affected by him in the Holocaust, co-created that experience. Hitler was applauded when he went back to the world of spirit. Abraham said Hitler went back to pure, positive Source.

Reply: We agree with all that. As we’ve said before, Hitler was a catalyst for good.

Comment: In an abortion the mother and unborn child are a vibrational match in choosing that co-created experience. But if the mother was in the vortex (Abraham’s term for being aligned with spirit), could she even choose abortion?

Reply: Yes, she could. If everyone creates their own reality, then that baby and the mother co-created that situation which resulted in abortion.

Comment: Also, (in the books and film Christine mentioned) the writers said there is cause and effect at work here, and there are consequences to the choices made (to have an abortion). I did not read or see them going to positive Source, at least not right away.

Reply: Stop and think about this for a moment. Cause and effect exist only in your linear time experiences. There is no linear time in spirit. There is only the eternal present. So there are no consequences—only a returning to, and a remembering of, who you really are.

Comment: I understand Hitler did not remember his plan on earth so how could he not feel the horrific effects and the vibrational discord he co-created at death? Does he not have to go through the healing process like most after the transition?

Reply: No, he does not. Everyone goes right back into the light of their eternal being after they make the transition you call death. We do not like that word, as it implies the end of you. It’s only a new beginning. Or, as Abraham puts it, you emerge back into pure, positive energy.

Comment: If abortion is just for the experience as all our deeds seem to be, how is it ok for Hitler and not for others to not reap what they have sown even if they co-created the experience with the so-called victims involved?

Reply: They do “reap what they have sown.” When they are back in spirit they see clearly why they chose their earthly experiences. And they also see why they co-created those experiences with all the others involved.

Comment: Do the afflicted heal immediately and say “Hey, oh yeah, I was killed and in terror but now I am instantly healed and I re-member?”

Reply: Yes, sort of. (See below: “Comment: Does he (Hitler) not have to go through the healing process like most after the transition?”)

Comment:They (those who’ve died) reflected the cause of the effects of their actions, words and deeds and found themselves or can find themselves in a realm, kind of like purgatory but of “like” vibration. I understand Hitler did not remember his plan on earth so how could he not feel the horrific effects and the vibrational discord he co-created at death?

Reply: No one in spirit has those experiences—horror, discord, etc. “Purgatory (or hell) does not exist. Hell and purgatory are simply fictions you’ve created because you think you are not worthy—you do not remember you are God, albeit in human form.

Those ideas are strictly human experiences you’ve chosen to have. While we in spirit do observe you humans having those experiences, we cannot join you in those experiences. But we will join you after you return to spirit. And we’ll have a big party to celebrate your return to love.

You all can choose to do a “life review” after “death”—but you do not do it with any sense of guilt, anger, fear, etc. As we said, those emotions and feelings are alien to those of us in spirit. And they are alien to you when you return to spirit.

Comment:Does he (Hitler) not have to go through the healing process like most after the transition?

Reply: No, he does not. Nor do any of the rest of you. Healing is not needed in spirit, especially after your “death.” The word “healing” implies something is wrong or out of balance. There is nothing wrong or imbalanced in spirit. All is well, all is whole.

Comment: I wonder if I am getting my own answer here haha! Maybe it is different for every soul? I guess Kardec and these Spiritists (in the books and film) try to teach people not to kill, and Abraham and Kyron take it lightly as well. Is it just an experience that we are a vibrational match to?

Reply: You have within you all the answers to all the questions you’ve asked us.

Comment: I would not want to cause intentional wrong if I knew I was going to reflect my own effect in the spirit world and I also would not recommend an abortion to someone if there are consequences to her soul and the souls involved.

Reply: As we said earlier, there are no consequences in the spirit world—only a full remembering of who you are and why you chose your earthly experiences.

Comment: Who is right and what really happens?

Reply: There is no right. There is no wrong. “What really happens” is you choose everything, in flesh or in spirit, for your own reasons.

Life is supposed to be fun. And so is death. Just enjoy it all!


Many people fear death. But that fear is rooted in 2 misunderstandings: What death really is, and what happens after death. Here are Abraham and Esther Hicks talking about this. Listen closely—if you fear death this will ease your fears.
