DEATH AND BUTTERFLIES
October 9, 2012, Apia, Samoa
Last night, my Loves Above were telling me rapturously about the Good Death that I will have someday…..peaceful and undisturbed. Maybe I’ll be alone and separation will be lovely. Then, They described the next moments and the show-stopper statement was about the “Butterflies that would be flying from my hair!” I just HAD to ask about that, as it’s an image that, as far as I know, hasn’t crept into our expectations as something that happens after death. It’s so “Mary Poppins!”
Oh my Holy Spirit! I’m sorry that I laughed about something that seems to be taken seriously on Your Level, but will You please explain?
“Wellllll, I don’t really want to now but I can tell you something about it because it doesn’t happen to very many people unless they are really, really, really happy individuals who have not let this world get them down and who see funny things in all sorts of serious situations, which you have been doing all your life. Each episode could have soured you to this planetary life….”
Our dictation was interrupted, but the subject seems a bit related to what came soon after:
Wow! The most recent issue of Newsweek has a cover article, “Heaven Is Real” by Dr. Eban Alexander, a neurosurgeon whose brain essentially died and he entered a seven-day coma, during which he had incredible spiritual experiences and came back to describe them, knowing full well that his old, scientific assurances were not true:
Consciousness is not dependant upon the cortex!
One of the first wonderful things that he reports seeing while his cortex was not functioning was a young woman with high cheekbones and deep blue eyes, who flew across an intricately-colored pattern that he compared to butterfly wings.
I remembered that conversation two nights ago. How wonderfully amazing to have such confirmation right away!! The Holy Spirit said that people who had endured hard things, without letting that get them down and who could forget or laugh about everything and be funny and positive people, would not only have these butterflies pour from their heads but would be followed by them, thereafter. Now, more than ever, I want to take dictation about this. Oh my Holy Spirit! About the butterflies…..?
“Oh My Linda Layli, Layli Linda! So much has just happened to change everything, everything, everything! We are not going to tell this story just yet, because it is so uncanny. You have been making these butterflies appear around people’s heads for a long time now. After they are kind to you or become your friend, or your child, or grandchild.
But now that this has happened…this great publicity from this brain doctor, now things will really start hopping! Anyway, butterflies are going to be more common now that you have clued into them and We are looking for them all the time, now.”
Interesting. Because the larva-to-butterfly transformation is sort of a universal symbol of spiritual development and achievement but it has remained low-key and owned by no one. Kind of odd, if it truly carries a high status in the Next World. How is it not so well known, Down Here?
“I don’t think it is well-known, because, interestingly enough….He’s speaking thoughtfully, slowly. “It just didn’t used to happen at all and then, it began to be noticed, spontaneously, occurring now and then.”
