However, some spirits will disconnect from their earthly lives and no matter how much I ring their phone, they won't answer. They're not there anymore. They no longer identify with being your Great Grandma Rose and feel no call to advise or connect with you.
So even while Rose is a little child in Africa, her higher self is also Rose in the "Ether" at the same time.
As such, our higher self is really a combination of all our incarnations then no? Meaning, our higher selves name isn't really Rose, that was just one "avatar" it played.
So when you connect to spirits, do they then take on the form of the person they were in the incarnation you're referring to them in? Meaning if Rose was killed by decapitation when she was Rose, but also lived 100 other lives as Jack, Bob, Frank, Mary, etc. the reason you see her spirit as Rose with no head is only because the "sitter" you're with will recognize her like that, right?
This also leads me to my original question. Why do we forget?
My wife is afraid of death and everytime I mention that there's really nothing to fear since we don't cease to exist after death, she always asks "Then how come I can't remember anything from any of my other lives?"
She's not trying to be skeptical, she genuinely wants to believe that there's something more to dying that just becoming dirt, but she doesn't understand why we can't remember anything from previous lives.
