Those We Do Not Speak Of – Shades of Gray

Shades of Gray


Where does the Essence go once it departs our physical body? Does it consciously decide whether to go towards the Light or remain in the earthly plane? Are we in control of what happens to our Essence or does energy return to Energy, from which it sprung?

Many Believe our last breath is simply the beginning of the next step on our journey. That we depart the Earth Plane and return to the Source of all Life and I for one also Believe this is so. Coming from a Christian perspective, I Believe the Essence is created by the Creator just as the physical body is and, upon completion of our life, we return to that Source to give an accounting of what we achieved, what we did not, and if we have fulfilled our Purpose. Yes, I do also Believe that each of us enters the Earth Plane with a specific Purpose; a goal to achieve or a lesson to learn or impart. Thus, it only makes sense that we would also need to review our life, take stock in those things we may have done that were a Blessing to others or served some useful Purpose before, perhaps, continuing on or returning for another go.

If it is prerequisite that we are drawn back into the Light upon completion of this life cycle, how then does it seem so many remain in “limbo”? If we accept that we are given the gift of free choice, are these who remain consciously choosing to avoid that final accounting of their life for some reason? Do they linger in this place rather than crossing over out of fear or maybe disrespect? If they are not anxious to rejoin that Perfected, Positive Energy, might we then assume they are a more negative form of energy, one of the many shades of gray as it were, and; if they are, how might they, then, interact with us? How does our Essence perceive negative energy?

I have had several experiences with positive energy throughout my years, most recently shortly after the passing of my mother. I had moved and, while settling in to my new home, there was more than one occasion when my cat stopped in his tracks to stare fixedly at something I could not see. For those of you who have pets, I am sure you may agree that there is a distinct difference between a blissful stare off into oblivion by our fuzzy friend and the repeated shifting of their head and gaze in the attempt to focus on something. Sitting in a dimly lighted, new house and seeing my cat do this should have unnerved me, or at least made those tiny hairs on the nape of my neck stand up, but I merely smiled. I am convinced the energy my cat was perceiving was that of my mother, or perhaps my Guardian, just checking on me. There was no fear, dread or threat of any kind involved and this is why I Believe it was Positive energy.

Many situations are equally pleasant or reassuring, but there are just as many, perhaps more, that are not. What happens when we encounter negative or imperfect energy? How does our Essence perceive or interact with those myriad shades of gray in the shadows of the Light? Is this when we experience fear? Does our Essence warn us by instilling in us an inherent dread of a certain place or situation because it is aware of that which we are not? If we choose to disregard this warning and persist in returning to this place of fear and dread, whether out of necessity or curiosity, how does the repeated interaction with negative energy affect us? In the physical form, when we are confronted by a bully, our anxiety increases, our confidence fails, we become withdrawn, inhibited. As the oppression of our Essence increases, do we similarly become defensive, angry, resentful, even violent?

There are many places in this world that have a reputation for being haunted or evil. Native Americans, as well as other ancient cultures throughout the world, name many places as cursed or avoid them because they understand how dangerous they are, but why? Is it perhaps because these places are inhabited by negative energy; by demons for lack of a better name? If we Believe there is Positive Perfected Energy, then the opposite must also be true, but what happens to these places infested by shadows and what happens to us when we choose to live there?

These are the questions we shall explore next time.

Now, Please share your experiences with positive or negative energy and how those interaction affected you.

  1. A small handful of personal experiences are more than enough to convince me of things I already knew to be true. I look forward to exploring this subject more in depth along with you and your readers my friend.

    1. Thank You John for stopping in for a read. I have been enjoying this discussion and hope to encourage more feedback along the way. Please feel free to share some of those experiences 😉

      1. Well Morgan, I think we discussed in my comments section on my post “night light” about the presence in my girlfriends place of residence. We are both familiar with the animals “seeing” something we don’t see. It happens too often to be coincidence.

        There are also light anomalies that show up in still photos and even one in a short video she took of her cat with her phone.

        Last but not least was what can only be assumed is an energy of some sort intent on making its presence known through a series of knocks. I am a believer but always do my best to rationally explain the not so paranormal first. The loudest and closest knock came on the wall not five feet from my side of the bed as I was explaining one of the noises as something more rational. As if to say OKAY DENY ME NOW!!! LOL. We both recognized and acknowledged our awareness and respect for it’s urgency to be recognized and all was quiet after that.


      2. I do find it very curious and fascinating that the urgency is often followed by silence. As Zak on Ghost Adventures often wonders “why do they speak and then suddenly vanish? Where do they go and why?” but I think, perhaps, he’s missing the point. It isn’t that the Perfected/or not so Perfected Energy has anything in particular to relate: no message from the Beyond. I believe it is simply a desire to be acknowledged; a need to be validated, for whatever reason. Perhaps this is why when you were busy explaining away, the urgent closer knock then turned to silence. You acknowledged its presence, which was all that was truly desired. Perhaps…

  2. Catching up. I think we are united with our Creator when life on this plane is finished. 🙂 Your experience with your cat is interesting. I do believe animals can sense things more intensely or acutely, for lack of a better way to put it, than people. I think that is at least in part because they have more acute hearing and sense of smell than people, and they have to in order to survive in the animal world. I learned to pay attention to what my dog was doing when I was walking her, and if she seemed uneasy or excited, I proceeded with caution. This is probably a little different than what you are talking about. I think this was more because she could hear or smell things before I could. It is very possible animals sense energy on a different plane or dimension than people, I’m not saying it isn’t, but I don’t know that any animals I’ve had sensed things not in this plane.

    1. It is marvelous how the more we wonder about these things, the more things we seem to have to wonder about 🙂 Ive been lax about writing the next part to this series, but thank you for your insights and motivation to keep the thoughts rolling 🙂 Hopefully this week! 🙂
