What is rescue work, what does it involve?
Rescue work by its very definition is the rescuing of the
spirit within, and aiding the spirit in its own transition
into what is termed the spirit world. This is achieved by
communicating with the spirit through thought, utilising clairvoyance,
clairaudience and clairsentience, helping to reassure that
all is ok and if necessary to help the spirit understand that
it has passed over from the physical body.
The above paragraph is a simplified account of what may occur,
bearing in mind that we are each different people, we have
our own unique life experiences; as such our perceptions will
be clouded to a certain extent. What we should be asking ourselves
however, is the question of whether or not rescue work is
Consider the following, a small girl six years of age is
knocked down and killed whilst chasing a ball onto the road.
Is this child lost? Does this child need to be rescued and
led into the spirit world? The problem here is that we are
viewing the child’s form before us, with our own physical
senses and not the spirit within, which may be an old spirit
indeed, and not necessarily the young girl we see before us.
Indeed this spirit in our scenario is perfectly capable of
knowing where if is and where it is going and when it will
choose to go.
Is it not an arrogant belief in that we assume spirit needs
help in returning to the spirit world? Surely if we come from
spirit with a gate keeper, someone who helps us into the physical
existence we have chosen, and we have adopted; therefore once
we let go the reigns of the physicality, the body that is
in essence a heavy solid structure within a heavier permanence
of a physical world, these constraints are removed and the
likeness, the ethereal body, the spirit within is given substance
once more. The conscious and subconscious minds which form
the consciousness, is fully accessed and functioning. Spirit
do not have a mouth with which to talk or hands to grasp,
they are thought, in essence energy. Energy can not be destroyed,
a scientific fact, though it can be changed, as the physical
body no longer functions due to decay, accident or injury,
the spirit within draws out and has returned to its own dimension,
not our dimension, therefore when we view the six year old
girl knocked over, we see only the little girl and not the
spirit within which may have it’s own agenda.
Whilst in the physical body we can help each other, by being
a friend to each other, providing each other with material
gifts, trying to help with their spiritual pathway, time to
listen, time to nourish, a time to talk, help provide aid
in THIS world. This is of benefit to the spirit within, for
it helps the spirit to understand the lessons and tribulations
involved in using an interface of one dimension to overlap
into another, the physical body. When we therefore go into
the spirit world, it is the spirit side of life, spirit with
spirit which helps. Do not forget the enormity of the world
of spirit of which whilst in the physical body, we do not
We reason within the physicality of this world with the physical
brain, we see with the physical eye, we hear with physical
ear, touch with the hands, we smell and taste, physical senses.
As we ourselves progress along the human trail along the path
of spirit evolvement, the spirit within gains more influence
over the physicality through the consciousnesses, which flow
into the physical brain.
In all we are viewing things within a physicality and not
an ethereal way, we do not have all the facts and figures,
we are not aware of the larger picture, the grander scheme
of life, only our own weave. Within the realms of spirit,
through the teachings and communication of spirit, we are
taught that upon the transition of the spirit back into the
spirit world they are helped from the spirit side of life.
Bereavement takes place, as we miss the person from the physical
existence, the spirit which has just moved away from the physicality
still carries a residue of that physicality for a while until
they themselves reunite with spirit, re-familiarise themselves
and acclimatise to their ethereal existence. It is the spirit
side of life which encourages, for there is one thing we have
not taken into account, free will, and the freedom to choose.
It may be that the spirit first wishes to minister to our
needs, to reassure us that all is ok.
Before we touch through the veil and into the physical world
we make a pact with our guides and helpers who have chosen
to walk and learn with us, also of what we would like to occur
in our lives to help us achieve our lessons. The little girl
may well have chosen to pass into spirit in this way, to understand
how it felt to have passed at such a young age; agreed with
the spirits of her parents in helping them learn their own
lessons, the bigger picture unfolds. We take with us into
the spiritual world the knowledge of what we have learnt and
experienced, our triumphs our failures, our love.
In summarising the above, and the question as to whether
rescue work is needed at all, we have to consider not only
the fact that we view things purely within a physical world,
but that we are not fully aware of the implications of our
own choices, actions and deeds within the vast tapestry of
life of which we are all interconnected through the fabric
of spirit. We do not take into the account free will, we have
a choice, spirit have a choice, if they chose to move around
us and continue to minister to our needs, that is their choice.
By the very act of leaving the physical body, spirit is aware
through the greater connectedness of spirit that they have
indeed taken their transition, no matter the circumstances
of their passing. Rescue work is conducted by people who have
made a choice to do so, they are sincere in their beliefs,
and we could however do a lot more good by helping people
whilst in the physical world, where there is a greater need
and leave the ‘rescue’ work to spirit and those
in the spirit world where it belongs.
