The above picture is from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II. This picture is the closest resemblance I could find on the Internet to the place that we go to in between lives. It's a lot more soulful and calm in reality but it is about as white and as bright as the picture above. Who ever came up with the set design for this scene in Harry Potter, has most certainly seen where we go between lives.
We tend not to think much about what happens to our souls in between lives. It is something that fascinates me very much though. (Maybe it has a little to do with being a past life reader!). It plays a big part in what we choose to experience and learn in this lifetime. You could pretty much count it as a whole lifetime in itself too!
So, what happens when we pass over then?
Once we pass over and our soul leaves our body we end up on different spiritual planes. We tend to hang around on the Earth plane for quite a bit and make frequent visits to our family, friends and places we loved when we were still alive. Once we have stuck around and come to terms with our death we spend some time with our mentors in the spirit realm. We talk through our lifetime, what we learnt and discuss what we think we should learn in our next lifetime. It's all very teacher and student like and readies and prepares us for our next incarnation.
After all of this we get ready to reincarnate and this is when we end up at The Train Station. I only know what I've been shown so I will endeavour to explain The Train Station as best I can. The Train Station is just the name I have given it since it best resembles a train station. (I'm so creative with the name, aren't I?!).
The Train Station is bursting full of soul energy. It is a very beautiful and calm place. Even though there's a calm unlike anything we experience on Earth, there is some wheeling and dealing going on about the place and it is extremely busy, all the time.
There is a steady flow of what I'd call 'trains' arriving and departing from this place. Everything is in a bright white or blue light. This is a Devine light and is part of the protective light of the Source/Universe/God or whatever you like to call it. Groups of souls can be seen to be mingling and talking about what contracts they've sorted out and what they're still looking for. It is a very beautiful atmosphere. If you're not chatting to other souls then you're reading through your contracts. That's pretty much all you're doing in this place- working on reincarnating.
Every soul is there to make new contracts. These contracts are with other souls from their past lives and also with the odd new soul that they haven't reincarnated with before. Everyone there is hustling to procure these contracts, get them signed and be on their merry way with their soul group. All of your contracts are checked and need to be approved by a higher source before you can enter the train for the next reincarnation. Just think: your new baby's soul was going through all of this before they started to grow in your belly!
There are no arguments. If a soul doesn't want to reincarnate with another there is no scuffle or anger that goes with that. Everything is just taken as is and accepted.
Your soul can spend a long time at The Train Station. This is by choice though and this is why reincarnation generally takes a long time. Souls that reincarnate almost instantly have either set this up previously in between their last lives or arranged a time exchange with their mentors. It is a very rare occurrence though. Most souls take their time reincarnating as it's not something that they want to rush into!
The length of time that it takes for advanced souls to reincarnate is interesting. Sometimes highly evolved souls can reincarnate quite rapidly as they have had loads of experience with brokering contracts and they don't tend to stay on the Earth plane for very long after their death. (A rapid reincarnation is about 40-50 years in Earth time). At other times they may wish to take longer than everyone else to reincarnate. Patience is a virtue that they understand very well and they know that it will pay off massively over their next life. They also know that spending longer waiting around and trying to hustle up the best contracts, will help them to evolve even further. They won't just take what they can get so they can leave The Train Station earlier, like some of the more impatient younger souls. It does all depend on what they had already set up previously with their mentor too.
Think that the age gap between you and another family member makes a difference? It doesn't. This is why we have souls floating around us before they're even born- they caught the same train to reincarnate with you but they're hanging around on earth until it's their time. And I'm glad that they do as I love communicating with 'Baby' spirits- they're so cute!
There is no waving at the train station when the train departs. It just is what it is and all souls present are just working on sorting out their reincarnation. The souls that have grouped are all on the same train and are all reincarnating together once again. It is a truly beautiful thing.
So if you ever hear me mention The Train Station again in one of my posts, this is the place I'm talking about. It is such an important part of our soul's evolution yet is often forgotten about or never thought of. I'd like to thank my spirit guides for showing it to me too, as it was such a blessing to see.
Light and love xx
