Afterlife With Archie: Betty R. Description The dark plague of the undead has swallowed Riverdale whole, forcing the survivors led by Archie, Betty and Veronica to flee the formerly idyllic town in search of safe haven. The rag-tag group's once-lighthearted romantic rivalries, power struggles and family feuds are now cast in a desperate light, as tensions and emotions are heightened by the fact that any decision, no matter how trivial it may seem, could now be a choice between life and death.

Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. We're featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book. Close X. The common stereotype, in which a person ends up in a flowing field of tall grass or wildflowers as soon as he or she leaves the tunnel, with all his or her friends and relatives there did happen in some cases but was by no means a standard.
Most people are somewhat confused when they first emerge and are not sure how to interpret the forms, colors, and energies they are seeing. Almost immediately after their death, most people do hear beautiful music or sound vibrations — which continue to be audible as they move through the early stages of their entry into the afterlife. Although each of us may have a completely different vision, whatever we see is invariably a majestic sight. Interestingly, these scenes seem to stay consistent over the course of many lifetimes for a soul.
We may still be confused, sad, bewildered, and traumatized by what has happened. If we experience sadness and confusion at this point, we are generally approached by our main guide in the afterlife. This is a very loving and supportive person who then helps us move through our initial greeting and orientation. Our guide helps us work through whatever emotions we are feeling with patience and expertise. Younger souls are more apt to be greeted this way, whereas more experienced souls will remember where they are and know where they are going. At this stage we are formally greeted into the spirit world, not just by our initial guide, but by others who are close to us.
These people often appear as masses of luminous energy, but they can project faces we are familiar with in order to help ease us into our new surroundings. We will see people we know who are still alive on earth, even if their physical bodies are alive, they also have an energetic body that remains in the afterlife the entire time. Again and again, Dr. The average, less-advanced soul will put between 50 and 75 of its energy into a physical body, whereas more advanced souls will never transfer more than 25 percent.
Some highly ambitious souls divide themselves into two or even three simultaneous incarnations on earth, in the hope of dramatically speeding up their evolution. Most souls quickly see the folly in this path, are warned not to do it by their guides, and will not attempt it more than once or twice. There is a lot of hugging and crying and an incredible feeling of love, acceptance and belonging at this stage.
Also, at this point we begin very clearly remembering multiple lifetimes we have shared with each of these people.
efunehifyrug.tk However, if we have committed atrocities toward others, such as murders, or toward ourselves, such as suicide, then we may go off to be alone with our guide to rehabilitate and quickly plan out our next incarnation. People who go through this process are always treated with patience and love, not the fiery world of torment and purgatory in which most people have been taught to believe. However they do end up reviewing and reliving the ways in which they hurt others, and they experience it from the other side as a direct reliving of how they made others feel by their actions.
Suicide creates the need for a great deal of healing work and a renewed dedication to go through the same lessons again in a subsequent lifetime — hopefully without committing suicide the next time. Violent, unethical acts require us to choose difficult life events that we hope will balance out our karma if we handle them lovingly. If we do come into the afterlife with this type of significant damage, we can spend quite an extended amount of time in isolation before getting the opportunity to again mix with our friends and loved ones.
No one is judged by their guides — in the afterlife, we are well aware of what our goals are in the physical plane. If we see that we have not learned the lessons we chose, we will cooperate with our guides to determine how we may best be restored to balance. As we become more advanced souls, no welcoming committee is necessary at the Homecoming stage and we will quickly move on to rejoin our soul group.
In these cases, we seem to be pulled quite naturally along wavelike bands of light. Even though there is full thought sharing in the afterlife and telepathic communication occurs among everyone, it is still possible for two individuals to have a private conversation by touching each other.
Next is an interesting series of experiences to help us reorient and re-familiarize ourselves with the afterlife. Our guide is often intimately involved with us at this stage. The first and most important part of this process is an energetic form of healing in which the traumas we carried in from our physical lives are washed away. Once we reach this hospital-like chamber, we go through what Dr. We move into a specific room of light and are bathed in a stream of liquid healing energy that appears like a beam coming toward us and moving through us.
Negative, traumatic memories, fears, and worries are washed away at this point. We again feel whole. We are inspired, renewed, and restored and are finally able to let go of the emotional bonds to our previous lifetime. The guide asks us probing questions about how we lived our lives, and whether we lived up to our own expectations, as we had chosen them before birth. This process is done with gentle grace — not a harsh, accusing tone or demeanor — but we are still expected to be honest, soul-searching, and thorough.
Our guide already knows our strengths and weaknesses, our fears and fixations, and is willing to work with us as long as we keep trying. It is impossible for us to hide anything from our guides due to the inevitable reality of instant telepathy in the afterlife. Some people have a much more difficult time with this counseling than others, and this is due to the overall maturity of the soul. Great humility is required, and we still experience our waking personality, to varying degrees.
We are not exalted beings who have reached a state of total soul perfection. We have wants, needs, and desires; we may feel embarrassed, awkward, fearful, and disappointed. We also discover the many different ways in which our guide attempted to influence us telepathically to make positive choices in our lives, such as through synchronicity.
In order to progress, we must honestly admit how we disregarded those messages and chose to act in weakness, ignorance, and fear instead. The more advanced souls do not require any counseling at the Orientation stage and simply move on to their ultimate destination. The visions we experience here can be some of the most breathtaking of our entire journey through the afterlife.
While she freely moves between genres, her novels are recognisable for their character driven stories and wonderfully vivid description.

We move into an enormous area where we see souls coming and going, much like at a train or subway station, but on an utterly vast scale. Gravity does not apply in the afterlife, so there will often be a vast, interconnecting web of energetic tunnels leading souls to their eventual destinations.
We are usually well aware, by this point, that once we move through this tunnel to our eventual destination, we will be reacquainted with those we love the most. As we think about these people, we telepathically connect with them and experience an initial meeting in that form before we actually leave the tunnel. Once we arrive at our own area and enter it, the scenery often becomes much more conventional looking, from the standpoint of our experiences on earth.
We will often see large areas that are familiar to us, including towns, schools, beloved homes, and landmarks that help us feel safe and secure. We are now fully reacquainted with our soul group — people with whom we keep reincarnating, again and again, as they play different roles. They may appear as parents, romantic partners, siblings, teachers, coworkers, or friends in various lifetimes. Members of our soul group who are incarnate in human forms on earth may seem to be half-asleep, radiating a dimmer light and staying fairly quiet.
They may greet us briefly but tend to keep to themselves.
Most of us at this stage are immediately aware of who is in a body and who is between lifetimes. The process is similar to the initial counseling we went through with our guide — only now we are accountable to a group of highly evolved beings. At this stage, we experience a return to a school-type environment. The classrooms can be quite beautiful and will have scenery chosen from our favorite places on earth. We study with our soul group — our closest friends, who enjoy a level of evolution similar to ours. This group can range between 3 and 25 souls, but the typical number is about This group will often be called the Inner Circle, and it stays consistent from lifetime to lifetime.

We also come into some degree of contact with a much larger secondary group of souls who incarnate with us to varying degrees. We see that entire towns, cities, nations or ethnic groups can keep moving, in clusters, through different locations and eras. Although this first appears to look more like a typical, large, bound leather book, it acts much more like an advanced holographic projection technology once we open it. As we go through the book, we review all the different experiences we went through in our lives — in vividly realistic detail.
