What Happens After You Die?

The “author” of this story is not comfortable writing, so she has given me permission to share her story.

I’ve been a Truth student all of my life. I’m not on walking water, but I’m fulfilled. My life works because of Truth. I’ve experienced many healings: body, relationships, career, finance, and emotions. Life’s been great.

One afternoon an idea flashed in my mind, “Sharon, you’re going to die – soon.” I was not sick. To tell the truth, I was feeling rather robust. But the idea was insistent – so insistent that I started making plans to die. Days passed and the certainty of dying grew stronger.

“What do I do about my family?” I asked myself. “Should I warn them or keep silent?” My only question was when! In my heart I knew it wouldn’t be a tragic death. I felt that I would just drift off and it would be over. No pain. No drama.

Weeks passed – perhaps even two months – and then it happened. Just as easy and quiet as a sunrise, I died. Describing it the best I can, it was like a snake shedding its skin. Better still, like a caterpillar emerging into a butterfly.

I died to past hurts, regrets, self-imposed limitations, and misconceptions. I died to my human view of my world, my self, and others. I was a new creature and I felt like it. “Born again” is how the Bible describes it.

I died for sure, but not in the way I thought. I never imagined death could be so wonderful. The same people are in my life, but I see them in a completely different way.

I walk around in the same body – but it’s a brand new Body – perception wise. I live in the same home, but it has a new glow about it. Everything is the same and yet everything is different. Life is better than I thought possible.
