We hover around friends and family, and try to speak with them, but they often cannot see us. They do not fully respond to us because we have not yet figured out who around us is dead and who is alive. We must be willing to experience ourselves as a form; made of light – before death, and before attachment to a personal point of view.
The Bardo of Becoming!

Brings to mind that before I can heal anyone else I need to heal myself. Much like the analogy of putting on the oxygen mask on an airplane on yourself before putting them on your children ! Also remove the log in your own eye before trying to take the splinter in someone elseâ€™s!
I think the only thing I might add is that, in this incarnation, we are form until form drops away. But we should not mistake the form for who we are. We are light (a vibration as Lori said) and we will always be light. When we get stuck in a personal point of view we lose sight of that. We focus on our “differences.” Hopefully, we are progressing from identifying with the body and a separate self to identifying ourselves as one. In the “Bardo” of life we are (hopefully) progressing toward that realization. And in the Bardo of death we also must progress from identifying as our impermanent body to our permanent light body. The more we understand before death, the easier the transition will be.
I believe we are ALL energy. Sometimes in form – human, animal, plant, sometimes in spirit. To me the difference is the vibration – specifically the frequency of a particular vibration. Color, light, music, words all have vibrations. And those vibrations differ in frequency. Our brains, bodies and emotions do too. Doesnâ€™t everything? Studies have found that expressed joy has a higher frequency than sadness. Though most of us didnâ€™t need a study to know that. We often hear the overused phrase, â€œRaising oneâ€™s vibration.â€ What if that is one of the keys to helping us connect more fully with who/what we are? What if communicating with those no longer in form simply requires a an adjustment of vibration and frequency? Allowing those in form to drop attachments and making it easier for spirit to be felt, seen and heard – allowing those in spirit a clear channel. An open heart, clear loving energy, meeting all where we are.
“We hover around friends and family, and try to speak with them, but they often cannot see us.” This struck me as the experience of people who have left form. Now I must see if it parallels or relates our experience in form. “I will think on it,” as my brother used to say. It does seem that all of life is preparing us for our experience after death. Hopefully, more to come.
