White Eagle On Life And Death
In the course of many years, I have gathered a collection of words of wisdom from the White Eagle group of spirit guides on the mystery of life and death. I am sharing them with you here in the hope that they may bring you a measure of comfort when you have to come to terms with and make peace with the departure of your loved ones from the material plane of life.
You Are Born Into Flesh
The following items are the essences of several White Eagle teachings. From ‘The Lightbringer’: ‘You are born into flesh, but in truth you are a spirit and soul who is spending time in earthly life so that your spirit may quicken and grow and once again become conscious of its Divine inheritance. You are by no means limited by your present existence, although to this day millions of people still believe that when their physical body dies, their whole being dies and that’s the end of them. What a surprise they will have when they see their physical body lying inert and dead, and they are still consciously living, in spite of the fact that they have no power to get the earthly body they left behind moving again. This is how your spirit and soul are set free and return into the world of spirit, your true home which is part of the Earth plane.
From ‘Memories of Reincarnation – White Eagle’s Work in the Present Day’: ‘Love is the Universal law of life and God’s will is that you learn how to love wisely, all people and everything else that shares your life with you. This you do by constantly sending out goodwill and light to all. We, your guides in the world of spirit, are working, for a long time unknown to you, on human minds and hearts. The years have been speeding by and we are glad to tell you that humankind has passed the darkest stages of its evolutionary journey.
‘Ever more of you are presently awakening to the inner light of the Christ that is waiting to teach each one of you how to become a perfected son/daughter of God and the human race. As you overcome the desires and passions of your lower animal self, you make room for the living God within you, the Christ Spirit, to manifest in you and your life. The growth of this part of you is our Divine heritage and constant progress in spiritual evolution is your destiny. What you begin today you will continue tomorrow. And in the world of spirit or light you will still be working to guide, inspire and bless humankind, in the same way as many of you are doing, now.’
‘The mystery and the miracle of life is continually making itself known and manifests itself through all your experiences. But those of death reveal themselves when you re-enter into world of spirit and with it regain the conscious awareness that life is eternal. As the spirit and soul withdraw from earthly life they escape into the freedom of their true home, where they are free to explore other levels of existence. Why do you grieve when your loved one has entered into such a much fuller and richer life? Or are you weeping because you are feeling lonely? There is no need for shedding tears over souls who have gone onward to a greater happiness than the Earth plane can offer.’
From ‘Illumination’ first published 1937: ‘Death is a mystery only because you do not understand. As a child is received into earthly life with love and rejoicing, can you imagine with how much more joy returned souls are welcomed to the spirit world? Could you but understand, you would rejoice with them and pray: ‘God, I thank You that my loved one has entered into the fuller and richer life of the spirit.’
‘Would you chain your loved ones down, keep them in some dark cell of age and pain, just because you love them so dearly? Would that be the voice of love? Rather than doing that a truly loving heart cries: ‘Beloved, I raise myself with you into the light. Enter and be joyful there, for in due course I shall be joining you.’
From the Lodge Calendar February 2008: ‘Words can be cheap and may fall as dead ash in the end. Yet, if you base your life on God-action in thought, word and deed, you are acting as a conscious being in the vast world of light where the only genuine and lasting happiness and perfection can be found. Therefore, walk the narrow path of doing what your inner guidance tells you is right. Never forget that you are not walking alone and that your Guardian Angel is helping you in all your endeavours. Whenever you are ready to know more about yourself, God and the world you are living in, it will show you the way.’

There Is No Death
The following is the essence of two different teachings of the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one is an extract from a talk at a Remembrance Service that appeared in ‘The Way of the Sun’: ‘There is no death. Of what are you afraid? You may look upon an empty shell or a chrysalis and say: ‘This is death!’ We say: ‘No, this is not death. It is rebirth and a renewal of life, which always continues. It always has been and forever will continue to do so.’ We, who have passed the great initiation called death before you, can come to you because of the love you are giving us is creating a bridge.
‘God, the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, has so created you and your bodies – the physical and the higher ones – in a way that in due course gives you the power to communicate with those you love in our world, the world of spirit and light, your true home. Each one of you possesses the material to construct their own bridge between your physical world and the dimensions of the higher ethers. We have crossed the bridge that connects our two worlds before you and are now trying to teach you how to join us in full consciousness.
‘Together with us, your spirit companions, each one of you can be a builder of bridges between you and the higher dimensions of life whilst still taking part in it on the earthly plane. The wherewithal for these constructions you all carry within and that’s the love in your hearts. Those who have accomplished the task of building this bridge can see for themselves that the Angels and Masters of the Christ Circle are with you to inspire and assist you with anything you may have to encounter in your present existence. This, however, does not mean that anyone can shift their responsibilities onto them. It’s up to you to conduct your lives in keeping with the Divine laws of the Universe.
‘Some people seem to think they can sit back and let God and the Angels do this work for them, but that is not the case. Each one of you is on the Earth to learn about God’s true nature and their own, and to find out how the Divine manifests itself in earthly life, once its spark within awakes from its slumber. Only through your own daily experiences can you learn to express it by acting and reacting with great care and love, kindness and thoughtfulness. Lip service is never good enough when it comes to concerns of the spirit.’
The second teaching is from a White Eagle Message from the Star Link 7.12.2013: ‘Love is the law of life and the greatest force in the whole of Creation. In love and on the inner level of life there is no separation, all is one. Your loved ones are not dead. Your love for each other has created a bond between you that nothing and no-one will ever be able to destroy. They have not gone from you and contact with them is always possible for you in your thoughts and meditations.
‘You are on the Earth plane to rediscover the awareness that life is eternal and ever renewing itself. God, the Great Father/Mother of all life, is love and loves each one of you totally and unconditionally. And when you become aware that there really is a great plan in which everything has its place and unfolds in its allocated time, and that you will always be safe wherever you may be, you can do nothing but love your Creator with your whole being. Every human spirit and soul is part of God and immortal, and in God’s consciousness there is no such thing as death. Because your loved ones are alive in that love, where your spirit self dwells, they are always with you and will never leave you.’

The following is the essence of the Monday Thought 23.05.2016 from the White Eagle group of spirit guides: ‘A woman once came to us and said: ‘It’s all very well what you are saying about our loved ones in the world of light, but I do not want to perceive my dear departed husband in some kind of spirit robes. I shall only be happy when I can see him once more in his tweeds wielding a golf club.’ We, your guides from the spirit world, understand her point of view. Do not think of us as unsympathetic, but if you lift your eyes above earthly things like tweeds and golf clubs, you will be able see all your loved ones in the shining robes they are wearing now.
‘What you will be seeing is their spirit and that is the part of them you have always loved, even though at times their behaviour towards you left much to be desired. The spirit is everybody’s eternal and lovable part, not merely of your nearest and dearest. It’s the aspect of human nature that unfortunately all too frequently remains hidden behind the façade of the small earthly self’s character traces. During the early stages of everyone’s earthly education this part has to remain invisible. None of you was ever born an Angel. In all human beings the higher angelic or rather Christ nature can only begin to grow and evolve with the passing of time.
‘Whenever you perceive the presence of someone’s spirit self, you may feel their touch like a gentle heavenly breeze on your face, hands or arms. You could then be tempted to brush it away and push to one side the feelings this evokes in you, thinking to yourself: ‘Here we go, it’s my imagination working overtime again.’ Don’t be too sure that this is the case, yet remain wise and balanced. Be open and receptive to the heavenly breezes and the light that is the white garment. You too will be wearing it in the fullness of time when you have joined your loved ones on the other side of the veil of consciousness that separates your world from ours. The light and the breeze are part of the gentle touch and the comforting sweet music of the Heavens, the higher levels of life.’

Death, The Great Enemy
The essence of two teachings from the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one appeared in ‘The Way of the Sun’: ‘Far too many of you to this day believe that death is the greatest enemy of your journey through earthly life. * You are afraid of it unaware of the fact that death is the Angel sent by the Great Father/Mother of all life to draw the bolts of your false beliefs and prejudices about what happens to you after the death of your physical body. For as long as you believe them to be true they keep you trying to cling as much as possible to your present existence.
‘Obviously, this creates serious obstacles when for one of you the moment has come that your spirit and soul should be taken home by an Angel of death into our world with the intention of setting you free, so you can once more move around freely and fly like a bird on the wings of your spirit self. * Next time you have arrived in our world, you will be able to tell from your own experience – the same as we are doing here – that death truly is humankind’s best friend whose reputation of being an enemy is thoroughly undeserved
‘Those who are unafraid of death may still fear loneliness in earthly life, although there is no need for this either. None of you is ever truly on their own. We are constantly accompanying you and those you have loved in earthly life also remain very close to you. They are one with you and part of you and therefore know your thoughts. In their present state their love for you is much greater than it could ever have been when they were with you on the Earth plane. All life is one and because for a long time the mind of the small earthly self cannot comprehend that there are other dimensions of life that bring everything on the Earth plane into being and maintain it, this does not mean they do not exist. They are eternal and will never go away, unlike the fleeting temporary realities of your earthly existence.
‘People think too much about time. * They believe that they have only so much of it for carrying out certain tasks and accomplishing the things they would like to do. This is altogether a wrong way of perceiving your present existence. All Eternity is yours and if you are reading what we are saying here and you understand it, for you the time has come to start viewing your life from the perspective of your spirit and eternal life. Through this your consciousness expands and you develop the Divine quality of your being that with the passing of time increases into an ever more glorious light.
‘There is no death, only a stepping onward to a more beautiful life that takes you closer to your Creator and His/Her all-loving Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ Spirit. Get rid of the idea of here and there, Earth and Heaven as separate from each other, because life is one eternal whole and there is no separation between anything. The more you conduct your daily life in keeping with the spiritual laws, the more you will be growing in spirit and tasting – at first only in many small and simple ways – the fruits of Heaven in the shape of an increasing awareness of the lifeforms that are invisible to earthly eyes.
‘No longer will you then regard death as something to dread. Bearing in mind that all Eternity is yours will leave you no time for fearing death. You will be aware that death does not change you in any way and that when you leave behind your physical body, underneath you are wearing another body like a garment, a body of light which you yourself have been building in past lifetimes and the one you are leaving behind.
‘Even if a human lifetime lasts one hundred years and over, it still represents but the blinking of an eyelid in eternal terms. And for each one of you it won’t be long until you know from first hand experience that there really is no death and that your loved ones are alive and well. It was just that they transformed into a more harmonious state of life that offers more opportunities for development and self-expression before you.
‘Life is eternal, continual and timeless, ever growing, evolving and expanding, filled with interesting things and activities. The more you unfold in earthly life and develop spiritually, the more you will be able to take possession of the wonderful life that exists in the spiritual background of earthly life, even while you are still taking part in it. Obeying the Divine law of love enables you to enter into this glorious Universal spirit life. When your whole being is filled with nothing but love for your Creator and His/Her Creation, as well as faith and trust in the great plan of life, you have every reason to courageously look to the future with hope in your heart.
‘The time is not so far away when the veil that for so long has separate your material world from ours will disappear altogether. Our world inter-penetrates yours. The separation between the two exists only in human earthly minds. In your imagination come to our world as often as you can, for when you visualise it you are taking part in it. Through the vibrations you will then be giving forth, you can be of greater use to humankind and also feel a deeper beautiful happiness within.
‘Try it out for yourself and you will soon know that there is nothing to fear when you step over the border into our world of light. And whenever you are in difficulties of any kind, go into the lodge of your own inner temple. Bar the doors from all intrusion of the lower mind and ungoverned emotions. Be still in spirit and the light will soon come to your help.
‘In all your endeavours you never work alone. The Angels and Masters and we, your other spirit friends and helpers, are constantly watching over you. We know you and everything you do. We are pouring our compassion and love into you to bring you healing on all levels of your being, mentally and physically, as well as spirit and soul. Love that expresses itself as wisdom is the greatest power of Creation. It creates light and radiates it into everything that is in need of healing and comfort. Each one of you has their own Master of love in our world. Picture yours as a powerful light, a beautiful personality with a gentle spirit whose aura is reaching out to touch and restore you at all times.’
The second teaching is from ‘The Way to the Age of Spirit – The Lightbringer’: ‘We are telling you that there really is no death. When you have passed what in the early stages of your earthly education appears to be a great barrier, you will be able to confirm this. At first you will probably think to yourself: ‘Am I dead? I did not feel anything and I haven’t changed one bit.’ There really is no difference because all you have done is leave your physical body behind. You took it off like a garment that has outlived its usefulness, do you are no longer interested in it. That is all physical death means because you are an eternal being of light and the way you are today you will be tomorrow. The more you consciously create yourself and build atoms of light into your whole being, the more you will be able to enjoy the fruits the Great Father/Mother has prepared for you to discover on the higher and highest levels of life.’

Sunshine On A Rainy Day
The essence of two more teachings from the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one is under the heading ‘Have No Fear’ in Stella Polaris Oct/Nov 2003: ‘A sorrow can be likened to a rainy day when the Sun’s light and warmth breaks through the clouds shines onto rain that’s still falling somewhere and a rainbow appears in all its glory. This also happens many times in human lives. Look to the light of the Great Father/Mother and their only born Son/Daughter, the Christ Star. Know that from them can come nothing but the best and the highest, that your loved ones are in their care and their love for them is greater than yours could ever hope to be.’
‘We are aware that many have to endure much suffering before they are allowed to depart from earthly life. It would help their development if they became aware that all human afflictions are not ancestral curses or were thrown upon people by a vengeful God. They themselves bring them about through faulty thinking and behaviour patterns, either in their present lifetime or previous ones, probably both. Accepting this concept is helpful for the learning and healing process. It shows that you understand and have grown in wisdom because you are taking responsibility for yourself and everything that is in your life. It enables you to forgive yourself and ask anyone you have hurt and wounded in past lifetimes, wherever they may be now, for their forgiveness.
‘All kinds of suffering cleanses human souls of the shadows of the past and makes good the spiritual debts that were incurred and left behind in previous lifetimes. This redemption combined with forgiveness brings the desired healing and peace. And that eventually sets you free to apply for another earthly sojourn in which you can practise kindliness and goodwill towards Mother Earth and all her kingdoms, and looking for the good in all people and situations. Sending nothing but positive thoughts and vibrations into your world empowers you to consciously add to the Universal positive stream of consciousness and that of your world.
‘At the end of such lifetimes, when someone’s moment of departure not only from the earthly plane but also from the need for a continuation of their education in the material world has come, they are rewarded with the happy ending of the great initiation into the spirit world and the full consciousness of God’s love. This state of bliss, commonly known in your world as Heaven, is one of the most beautiful experiences imaginable. We too went through it when our earthly education had run its course, the same as many of you are presently experiencing.
‘That’s how we can tell you that there really is no death and that it’s but a very thin veil that separates those on the Earth plane from the ones who are already in our world. They are still alive, just the way they were when you knew them. Because they have left their physical bodies behind, their spirit is flying freely. Therefore there are much happier than it ever was possible during their times in the physical state of being. With earthly eyes you will never be able to see anyone in our world, even though in its own way the body in which they are presently moving about is as real and solid as yours. The great hope of your loved ones is that their friends and families on the other side of the veil will awaken into the awareness of the spiritual background of earthly life while they are still taking part in it.
‘In your world it can be extremely difficult to see that our Creator is indeed the God of love and that the life you have been given is a good one. This is not the case from our perspective and we would like to give you an example of some of the beautiful things that happen in our world. Souls who newly arrive here may at first feel a little strange. But each time a loved one is thinking of them in earthly life, a ray of warm golden light reaches them that tells them that a loved one is thinking of them. This is particularly strong when someone thinks of departed ones with joy and says: ‘I know you are alive and happy. Knowing it brings me contentment and happiness. Go forward into the life that is now yours, beloved. I know that there is a great deal of work waiting for you.’ By thinking along these lines, you in earthly life can do a great deal for your loved ones in our world.
‘When it comes to applying for another lifetime on the Earth while resting in our world, human souls are like the sailors of your world. After a while of being at home, they long for distant horizons. When these have been explored sufficiently, they yearn for home, mother and other loved ones. We hope that what we are telling you here will help you, when for you the moment of departure from your earthly existence has come, to let go and willingly reach for the hand of the Angel who has been sent to take you home.
Hopefully, after heaving read what we are telling you here, you will no longer think of Earth life as a vale of sadness and tears, but recognise it for what it truly always has been. It is a vast exercise ground that at all times is flowing over with golden opportunities for human beings to grow in wisdom and understanding, each through their own consciousness expanding experiences. Supporting you the way we are doing here furthers the evolutionary pathway of each one of us and our whole group, the White Eagle group of spirit guides.
From ‘The Gentle Brother’ Stella Polaris Oct/Nov 2003: ‘We know how difficult it is for you not to be sorrowful and mourn about the loss of loved ones. Our task is to help ever more of you to become aware of their life in the spirit world. Do not think of them as being separated from you. It is only the lack of their physical body that creates an impression of separateness. Yet, in truth all life is one and there is no separation between anything. Your thoughts can reach your loved ones and the happier they are, the more content they are.
‘Our spirit world is a beautiful place and having arrived in it, your loved ones are finding themselves in most agreeable circumstances. Knowing this will surely help you realise that there is no need for grieving, merely rejoicing. When you wish you could help your loved ones in some way, think of them with nothing but happiness. Each time you rise to meet them in spirit and in a communion of light, you are blessing them and are being blessed.
‘Every rainbow in earthly life is a special blessing and a benediction that brings healing to all who are seeing it and also the soul of your whole world. It is a gift from the Spirit of the Universal Christ, the spiritual Sun behind the Sun in the sky above you. And every drop of rain that falls from it is a manifestation of a tear someone in your world is shedding. Each drop clears away a bit of the suffering that caused the tear.’

When Death Draws Near
The following is the essence of two teachings from the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one is from ‘The Divine Mother – The Creation of Form’. The second one appeared in ‘White Eagle Spiritual Unfoldment Two ‘Companioned by Angels’:
‘For all human beings there eventually comes the moment when they leave their physical bodies behind and die, as it’s called in earthly life, although in truth the only thing that happens to these bodies is that their indwelling spirit and soul withdraws from it. Leaving the body through the head and their outer garment is discarded like an empty shell. Nobody is ever alone in this process. Each time this happens to someone the Angels are in attendance and assisting. * The angelic hierarchy is part of the Great Mother of all life, who in your world was once known as the Egyptian Goddess Isis. But this was merely one of the many other names that were given as symbols to describe her presence throughout the ages.
‘For as long as you can only see the physical aspect of life, you are bound to think that death is terrible. Even though to you it may often appear as accidental, this is never the case because the group of Angels known as the Lords of Karma are observing everything that happens on the Earth most carefully. Each time the predestined moment of death for one of you is approaching, they make their preparations and give notice to the Angels of Death to get ready. And these Angels are by no means the repellent figures and gruesome spectres people imagined them to be in the past.
‘If you could look through the veil of consciousness that to this day separates your world from ours, you would see countenances of an ethereal beauty that for earthly minds is hard to imagine. As an expression of the Great Mother’s unconditional and all-embracing love, these Angels are all compassion and kindness. All Angels are messengers of the Divine and at the moment of someone’s death they are the ones who bring about the separation of the spiritual aspect of your being from its physical counterpart. They help your departing spirit and soul to let go of the earthly plane and return you safely to your true home, the world of light. They help you through your rebirth in our world, where loved ones are greeting you and celebrating, just as they would do in earthly life each time a baby has arrived safely.
‘Sometimes you will be wondering how you can best help those whose death is near. In that case the power of thought can be more effective than any spoken or written word could ever hope to be. It is possible to help the ones in the ‘departure lounge’ by sending them optimistic thoughts that affirm that they are eternal beings who will never die. In your mind hold you can hold kind and loving, hopeful and constructive dialogues with them about this. In your imagination take them into the blessing and healing rays of the Christ Star, the power and light of the only born Son/Daughter of the Great Father/Mother of all life. Attune the receiver/transmitter station of your earthly mind to the Star’s healing rays and send them to anyone you feel intuitively will benefit from them. Even at great distances such transmissions are as effective – more so in many cases – than any kind of sophisticated physical ministrations.
‘We sincerely hope that what you are reading here will help you to overcome the notion that the worst for any human being is the passing from its physical body. Whenever you catch yourself thinking that way, remember that they are not dying but heading for another rebirth into our world. Because they are being released into a world of infinite beauty and wonder, love and joy where there is no pain and where they will continue to live and thrive, explore and study, there really is no need for expressions of grief and sorrow. Let there be compassion but not pity. The American poet John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807-1892 described this most beautifully in his poem for the funeral of William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879: ‘Death is the Angel sent who draws the unwilling bolt and sets the captive free’. *

When Death Draws Near – Part Two
Excessive Grief And Sorrow
‘When you have digested what you have already found here, you will be able to see for yourself that excessive grieving and sorrowing by those left behind in earthly life is unjustified. It is also undesirable because it gets seriously in the way and impairs the progress of those who have arrived in our world. Each time sadness threatens to overwhelm you, remind yourself that although the other one’s spirit has passed from your outer vision, in truth they will always remain close to you. Wherever there is love between people, there can be no separation. Your love for anyone behind the veil creates a bond that connects you with them and this helps to dissolve the sense of separateness that is always present on the Earth plane because everybody is living in their own physical body.
‘The illusion of separateness was created to help each one of you to become aware of their individuality and that you are individual beings. This state however exists only in earthly life while on the inner level everything has always been one and forever will be. Love is the greatest power in the whole of Creation. It invokes the Universal law of harmony and reunion and that connects spirits behind the veil with those in earthly life.
‘We know from first hand experience what a hard school Earth life can be. But the more you manage to penetrate the veil that keeps it apart from our world, the better you will be able to enter consciously into the limitlessness of spirit life, and that makes your earthly existence more bearable. Rest assured that all life is safely held in God’s love. And in keeping with the will and wishes of the Highest, our world provides tirelessly for every need of all aspects of earthly life. This includes making preparations for the important events in every earthling’s life.
‘Let there be no doubt in your mind that the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, known as God or Allah to many, loves each one of you in just the same way, totally and unconditionally. And no matter what may ever befall you, you will never be forsaken. To paraphrase the Jesus legend: ‘Every hair of your head is numbered and not a sparrow falls from the sky without the Great Father/Mother knowing about it.’ At all times you are closely held in His/Her loving arms and the care of the ministering Angels.
‘Your true needs will always be supplied. Naturally, this covers a wide range of possibilities, for example periods of hunger and thirst, physically and spiritually. To teach them the value of food and drink, they have to be endured by all human beings in one of their lifetimes. And if there is anything else you think you need, all you have to do is go the right place, i.e. within, knock at our inner doors and ask. Be careful though what you request because, to teach you a lesson you still need, your wish could be fulfilled in unexpected ways that may not be agreeable to you at all. But those who proceed in the right manner can be sure to receive in due course the spiritual and physical blessings of the Heavens in full measure. This is decreed by Divine laws and they never fail.
‘In all your endeavours bear in mind that life is eternal and that it constantly moves forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral. This it does in cycles that can be observed in the coming and going of the seasons of the world around you and, because human beings are not exempt from these processes, your own life. There have been other golden ages on the Earth when the Angels moved hand in hand with people in full consciousness. One of these ages comes around at the end of every Great Year. The whole cycle of one of these years takes approx. every 25,860 Earth years. Don’t miss out on what the Angels are presently offering, otherwise the vibrations that will be required for an appearance during Mother Earth’s next golden age may not be right.
‘It may not come as a surprise to you when we tell you that you have known easier earthly lifetimes than the present one. Naturally, this fulfils a wise higher reason, the same as everything else that happens in your world. And when you go through your world with open eyes, you cannot overlook that everywhere people having an almighty struggle trying to come to terms with their existence. For many this is because they have reached the end of their earthly education and some of their most ancient and heavy unpaid karmic debts were waiting to be redeemed. Until this has been achieved, they cannot be released onto the higher levels of life.
‘The law of life is evolution and each one of you has been granted the gift of another lifetime on the Earth to evolve into a healer and lightbringer in their own right. This means sharing the knowledge you are finding along the pathway of your life with those around you, helping and supporting them and through this bring comfort and healing. Giving of your best and unselfishly serving the needs of the whole, fills earthly lifetimes with opportunities for developing the characteristics of your Christ nature. Some of you are working upfront, while others are toiling quietly in the background. Yet, all contributions are equally valid and greatly appreciated by us. Every small effort makes a difference and helps all humankind and your world move forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral.
‘In your enjoyment and delight in Mother Earth’s beauty, do not overlook searching for a better understanding of the spiritual background that brings all of it into being and constantly maintains it. As you know, in every soul the spiritual fire of the Divine spark is present, though at first only in seed form. When with the passing of time the spiritual fire within you grows more powerful, you will notice that when you reach out to people with love, there is nobody who does not respond to it in the same way.
‘Wise ones appreciate that shedding too many tears over someone who has departed from the earthly plane of life would most certainly not be a sign that the mourner loved them more than anyone else. It merely shows that, because they fail to understand the purpose and meaning of humankind’s earthly existence, they selfishly and endlessly wallow in self-pity over the hole the departed one left in their life. Wise ones save their energies and spend them on helping such people to find a better understanding, too.
‘So, be a wise one and do all you can to share your knowledge and assist anyone in need of it to understand that physical death, when seen in the right light, is an event for rejoicing instead of weeping. As far as your own life is concerned, no matter what obstacles you are still encountering, never give up hope and do your best until every last shred of your Karmic debts has been redeemed. One of these days this will be the case. Trust that hand in hand with God and the Angels all will be well in the end and everything will work out for the highest good of all, as surely it will.

When Death Draws Near – Part Three
Human Life Is Infinite And Eternal
The following is the essence of two teachings from the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one appeared in ‘Morning Light – Neither Death nor Separation’: ‘You are an eternal being of light, a many faceted jewel. The Essence of human life is infinite and eternal. There has never been a time when you were not and you will always be. But still you cannot help asking yourself from time to time: ‘Don’t I have the right to get tired of endless rounds of incarnations, when earthly life is so difficult and burdensome?’
‘That is the very reason why your days in physicality are limited and each incarnation lasts only for a comparatively short time. Even if you should be around for a hundred years or more, in terms of Eternity, God’s time, it represents the mere batting of an eyelid. This is also why at the end of each lifetime you are allowed to leave your physical body behind like an outworn garment, while you move for rest and recuperation to our world, the true home of your spirit.
‘In your daily life you do not mind moving from one house to another, when the time for a change has come. You may still love your old house, but when you have had enough of it, you leave it and go. In just the same way you reach the point of wanting a new body because you are weary and tired of your present one that has grown old and maybe riddled with pain. Eventually God and the Angels in their kindness allow you to pass on. They remove you from a state of existence you have outgrown into the next one that is ready and waiting for you.
‘Having safely arrived there, you soon discover a kind of freedom you have never experienced before. Your spirit has risen into a period of intense happiness that is far removed from the limitations and boundaries of earthly life. Eventually you have rested sufficiently and the lessons of your earthly existence have been assimilated. Your interest in a further incarnation that will help you to progress on the evolutionary spiral of life then quickens and for you the time for applying for another lifetime on the Earth has come.’
The second teaching is from ‘The Source of All Our Strength – No Death’: ‘Death is by no means the dark vale it was made out to be in the past. It is but a passage that takes you forward to an initiation into a world of beauty. You will not know when you are taking your last breath. You will be entirely unconscious that it is your last breath, but you will feel much lighter and realise that you are free! You will then be asking yourself: ‘Lo, what’s happened to me? What was I afraid of when people were talking about death? There really is nothing to fear. Death of the physical body is not at all like going to sleep. It’s an awakening to a more radiant and harmonious existence that soon makes you forget earthly life.’
‘You are eternal beings of light and as you are today, you will be tomorrow. When you consciously re-create yourself with the power of your own thinking, you are building ever more spiritual atoms into your whole being, so you can enjoy the fruits that God and the Angels have prepared for you on the higher levels of life. Our world, the world of spirit, is by no means geographically distant from you. It is inside you, an inner layer of your own consciousness. You reach the light of the higher worlds by opening yourself to love. As you know by now, what in Earth terms is known as death is but an initiation. From it your spirit and soul emerge and without losing their identity of earthly life, they move into the greater consciousness of God’s eternal light.’
Going home, going home – we’re all going home.
Quiet like, some still day – we’re all going home.
It’s not far, just close by, through an open door.
Work all done, care laid by – fear and hurt no more.
Mother’s there, expecting us – Father’s waiting too.
Angel folks are gathered with guides and friends we know –
Guides and friends we know.
Morning Star lights the way – Earth-bound dreams all done.
Shadows gone – break of day – real life’s just begun.
There’s no break, there’s no end – just a moving on.
Wide awake, with a smile – going on and on.
Going home, going home – we’re all going home.
It’s not far, just close by – through an open door.
Going home, going home, I’m just going home.
Though I have gone before you,
I did not do so alone and neither will you,
When your time for saying goodbye to the Earth plane has come.
God and the Angels are forever with us,
Keeping you and me safe.
No matter where we may ever find ourselves,
We shall always rest securely in God’s loving hands.

Learning To Love God
To this day many believe that life stops at the moment of physical death and that it is a one-off thing. Wise ones, however, appreciate that in truth life is eternal, constantly moving forwards and upwards on a never-ending evolutionary spiral and that therefore there is no death. Just think: when you entered into your present earthly lifetime you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Your turn for happiness comes when you depart from this life and the ones around you, who cannot yet appreciate what is really happening to you, are crying and may have to linger in their spiritual darkness until their time for joining you in the world of light has come.
The essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in the StarLink Message January 2012: ‘Your loved ones who have left the earthly plane of life have not gone from you. They are by no means dead, but alive and well in the world of light, our realm. That’s where all human spirits are constantly dwelling. It’s just that from time to time a small part of it ventures forth into earthly life where it inhabits a physical body that serves as a vehicle for getting around and experiencing its new environment. This body is equipped with a rational and logical mind that has very limited horizons that separate the earthly part from the spirit aspect of its being. During the early stages of its earthly education this small self can not yet peer beyond the end of its nose.
‘For a long time the lower mind is focused on coming to grips with earthly terms only. In this state of ignorance the spiritual side of life is dismissed out of hand. Everything that cannot be seen, weighed and measured is rejected as humbug and imaginations. Yet, through the learning the earthly self gains from its own experiences it slowly grows in wisdom and understanding. With the passing of time over many lifetimes the vision of its consciousness gradually expands. At a certain point of its development the spirit nature of the small self stirs from its slumbers and it begins to take an interest in the spiritual aspects of life. Eventually, it comes to terms with the meaning of the concept of God as the eternal spirit, who has brought everything that exists anywhere into being.
‘This awakening brings the understanding that the spirit realm is not somewhere ‘out there’ but on the inner level of Earth life and that in this world there is no separation between anything. And that’s where, in your quiet reflections and meditations, you can contact your loved ones through the power of thought. This enables you to see for yourself that what we are saying is true and that life really is eternal. Because each one of you is a spark of God’s great light and having been created by Its eternal spirit, it could not be any other way.
‘God is love and the law of life is love and if you wish to know God, all you have to do is be yourself and conduct your life with love, for that is your true and eternal nature. God is in everything and everyone, including you. If you treat everything that is in your life with the love and respect it deserves, you are paying homage to the Great Father/Mother of all life and His/Her Creation. On the higher and highest levels of life death does not exist and that’s where your loved ones are now. Once your loving thoughts have connected you with each other, there will no longer be any doubt in your mind that you will always be together.
‘That’s when for you the time has come to comprehend that all healing consists of taking into your physical bodies the radiance of the eternal Sun, the Sun behind and above the Sun in the sky above the Earth. Each one of you has been granted the gift of another lifetime so that you may learn how to call upon this light and live by it. When you consciously breathe it in, ever more of God’s light can enter the cells of your physical body and control them. We suggest that you breathe this light in for the healing of every aspect of your own being, mind and body, spirit and soul, and breathe it out as your contribution to the restoration of your whole world.
‘At the beginning of everyone’s earthly existence the atoms of this body are so heavy and the pull of matter and material life is so strong that you temporarily forget about the existence of the light of the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life and its power to re-create, heal and make good whatever is in need of it throughout the whole of Creation. Naturally, this also applies to you and the cells of your body.’

A White Eagle Christmas Message
You And Your Loved At Christmas
‘When you entered earthly life you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Your turn for smiling comes when you depart from your present existence and the ones around you, who do not appreciate what is really happening to you, are crying and have to wait until their time for a better understanding of the processes of life has come. May your spiritual awareness help you to live your life to the fullest. Isn’t it sad that to this day so many think that life finishes with the death of their physical body, when in truth there is no death and life is eternal and constantly moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral?
‘Your loved ones are not dead and they have not gone from you. In spirit there is no separation. Contact with your loved one is always waiting for you through the power of thought and meditation. You have to develop within yourself the consciousness of the eternity of life. Know that God is love and has nothing but love for you, so love God with the might of your whole being. In the Divine consciousness there is no death. Your loved ones are living in that love and are part of your spirit. On a higher dimension of life your loved ones are always with you.’
‘During the Christmas period human hearts tend to yearn and ache even more than at other times for some kind of contact with their loved ones in the world of light. Whenever such feelings threaten to overwhelm you, take comfort from knowing that all they have done is leave the darkness of earthly life behind. They are not dead but alive and well in the world of light where death does not exist. Take advantage that during the Christmas period the power of the Christ energies are felt much more strongly on the Earth plane than at any other time. This brings your loved ones closer than usual and the Christ love enables them to bring the gift of their love to your heart.
‘And now, in your imagination picture a temple that has been constructed of the healing rays of the Universal Christ. In its centre stands a huge Christmas tree that is aglow with millions of lights. This evergreen tree is a symbol of God’s unshakeable and eternal love. You can seek the shelter of this love to meet with your loved ones and friends who have passed into the spirit world before you, not merely at Christmas but always.
‘During your prayers and meditations in the Christmas period, when you focus your thoughts and the feelings of your innermost heart upon the beauty and power of the Christ Star on the Highest levels of life, you may sense the presence of the Angels around the throne of God. Listen to their message the way the shepherds of the Jesus legend did on the hills of Bethlehem, a long time ago. Imagine you can hear the Angels singing: ‘Love is born and comes to the Earth at Christmas.
‘Our loving thoughts, blessings and best wishes are constantly with each one of you and your loved ones, especially at Christmas and the New Year.’

Proof Of Spirit’s Presence
The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that came to me as the Lodge’s Monday Thought on the 8.2.2016: ‘Whenever you are seeking contact with your loved ones in the world of spirit, very little material evidence of their presence will come your way, if any. Even though there could be nothing for writing down and presenting as proof of your meeting, when you sit in communion with loved ones you may discover that there is a flow of love that passes between your hearts.
‘By a touch, a scent or certain words and phrases, a line from a song or a poem that come to your mind you know intuitively that you are in touch with the spirit of your loved one. Sometimes in absolute silence an action or an atmosphere is created that reveals their presence to you. Such things happen because communications of this nature are taking place on the highest spiritual level the other one has been able to reach during their most recent earthly lifetime.’
And this is some feedback I received from a friend in response to the above: ‘After completing a meditation in which I communicated with a beloved friend who committed suicide eighteen months ago, I logged on, and read what you had written and posted three hours ago. I was astonished to find that the words you were using described almost exactly what happened in my meditation. Although it provided me with comfort, it also left me feeling bereft and lonely.’ P.T. But twenty-four hours later he reported that he was feeling a strong presence of her around him.
To me, the incident is clear evidence of the following: 1) Our loved ones really are where they are said to be: in the world of light. 2) It’s the guiding and protecting hands of our spirit friends and helpers that connects us with them. 3) Whether someone believes in them or not, both our loved ones and the Angels are there. 4) Last but not least it provides me with proof that the wise ones in charge of us in the world of light are communicating with our world through me. And that confirms the authenticity of the work I am carrying out on their behalf. The original White Eagle teaching must have been very old, because the transmissions of this group of guides through Grace Cooke, the medium they used, stopped many decades ago. They chose me to update the message and through this bring further understanding to us and our world. In all humility I kneel before them and thank them for all the help with which they are providing each one of us individually and our whole world.
Regardless of so much evidence of their presence, my friend very much doubts that Angels and Masters, friends and helpers in the world of light really exist. This is because he does not like the idea that humankind should have some kind of Overlords. In my view, that’s what the wise ones on the other side of the veil of consciousness most certainly are not. They are our older siblings in the great family of life, who love us and want to help their younger siblings.
The White Eagle teaching was received by e-mail on Monday about lunchtime. I found it so good and valuable that I dealt with it immediately by re-interpreting it. Yet, for some reason, not consciously known to me, I delayed the sharing of it until the next day. If the whole of that incident doesn’t prove the guiding and protecting hands of those in charge of us and our world at work, please tell me what does. There is no doubt in my mind that they were the ones who prompted me to write, my friend to meditate, and me to post my insights only when they saw that the right moment for it had come. By both of us doing these things independent of each other and without having any idea of what the other one was doing, they wanted to provide us with proof of their presence. What more could anyone want?
Contrary to what W.E. taught through Grace Cooke, our friends and helpers are neither men nor women, brothers or sisters. In the world of light on the inner level of life we are once more aware of our true nature as spirit and soul. We are whole again, i.e. the masculine and feminine aspects of our being are consciously working together as one, unlike the way we are in earthly life when these two all too often are at loggerheads with each other. The original W.E. version that the spirit guides are our brothers was given because at that time too many would have been unable to grasp the concept of androgyny.

Do Not Fear The Unknown
The essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides from ‘A Time to Remember’ in Stella Polaris Oct/Nov 2008: ‘Do not be afraid of the future and the unknown. You do not need to fear the moment of your physical body’s death, because it is nothing but a step forward that returns you into our world, your true home, and enters you into its greater freedom and a fuller existence. Your physical body has been your vehicle for one lifetime. Each time you leave it behind you move from life in physicality into our world of light.
‘Without consciously being aware of it in your present existence, this is a road you have travelled many times before. On every occasion the only thing you can take with you is whatever light, in the form of wisdom and understanding, you have gained from the experiences of all your earthly lifetimes, including the most recent one up to the moment of leaving it behind. Every bit of this knowledge is stored in the memories of your soul. From there it is constantly emanating into the conscious awareness of your earthly self, helping or hindering its pathway, as the case may be. And each time you reach the spirit world, the beauty and wonders of this realm and its life once more reveal themselves to you.’

Nothing Ever Dies
The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in the Lodge’s calendar September 2012: ‘Before any kind of new growth and building can take place anywhere, there has to be a clearing of the land. This requires ploughing the Earth and cleansing the soil. The same is true for every human being. As soon as the physical conditions surrounding them have served their predestined purpose, they are cleared away. Yet, in truth nothing ever dies, neither the spirit and soul that dwells inside every physical body nor the atoms of that body. They too merely change their form and from the dust and ashes left behind at funerals new life is created.’

Eternal And True
The following is the essence of a teaching of the White Eagle group of guides from ‘The Gentle Brother’ Stella Polaris December 2015 / January 2016: ‘Train yourself to look beyond the end of your nose, away from the darkness of Earth life into the light of higher and highest realities. Focus on the things that are eternal and true, for they have been given to you to help you on your evolutionary journey. Maybe your present lifetime is a rosy passage and you are wafted along on wings of love or the opposite is true for you.
‘Of whatever nature your experiences are, never forget that through them we, the wise ones in charge of you in the world of light, are slowly but surely guiding each one of you and your whole world along an eternal evolutionary pathway of progress. On this road you are gradually becoming ever more aware of the perfect outworking of God’s great plan of life and Universal laws. Through this your consciousness is constantly expanding and your earthly self is growing in wisdom and understanding. ‘Ear hath not heard nor eyes seen’ the wonders of the heavenly state, to which all of you are moving.
‘The further you travel along this road, the more you can see for yourself that in truth there is no death, only a change of the dimensions you live in. As your inner eyes open, your vision opens to what kind of spiritual growth lies ahead and the beautiful conditions you are going to take part in. Refuse to look on the dark side of anything and never forget that whatever appears to earthly perceptions as a tragedy or disaster is part of the unfolding of God’s perfect plan. You can be sure that through the things that are happening in your world, behind the scenes on the higher and highest levels of life, God’s wise and loving power is bringing ever more beauty, kindness and goodness into your world. Divine wisdom creates light out of darkness and makes knowledge and wisdom grow from ignorance.
‘Through your younger and less evolved siblings, who are still in the process of getting to know the lower aspects of their nature, the Universal power shows the older and more highly evolved ones in your midst the senselessness and futility of all kinds of aggression and warmongering. This is teaching you the value and preciousness of human life and of peace.
‘And now open yourselves to the holy blessings of God, the Father/Mother and their only born Son/Daughter, the Spirit of the Universal Christ. Like incense from a communion table may our prayers of thanksgivings rise to the Heavens, the highest levels of life.’
