The first part of the book describes the experiences of a fictional character's experiences in the after life. Much of what's described is also described by the fictional character is what Buhlman describes of his personal experiences in the "How to Have an Out-of-Body Experience" CD. In the second part of the book, Buhman goes into depth about the true nature of soul and so many billions of souls are trapped in the denser planes of existence, doomed for reincarnation. He gives us a stark warning of the dangers we have in our spiritual evolution, and guidance on how to avoid these pitfalls.
One of the most profound ideas I found in this book was how our thoughts in our physical form literally reverberate through the universe. We have enormous creative power with our thoughts which creates reality not just for ourselves but literally can create reality for others. This is why consensus realities exist in the astral plane and why our it is said that our subtle-body appearance in the astral plane is a reflection of our "prime" physical beauty, since that's what we want to be seen as. Our thoughts are extremely powerful and we should take care in them to make sure they are always positive in nature.
What is so convincing to me about the ideas in this book is that I can relate with a personal experience. I once experienced the vibrational state which lead to a lucid dream. What struck me most about my lucid dream was that I literally was able to create things that felt real. It's very hard to describe the experience but whatever I thought of was instantly created in my lucid dream and it was real in every sense of the word. My personal experience confirms Bulhman's idea that in the higher, subtle planes, our thoughts are literally *everything* and impacts everyone. Following this train of thought, it then makes perfect sense that earth is a good training ground for souls as thought in the physical form takes the longest to manifest to reality. The slowed down environment of the physical form is absolutely perfect for less evolved souls to grow without wreaking havoc to the higher level dimensions. As the adage goes, we must learn to walk before we learn to run.
This book taught me that I can immediately take action right now in my physical form to evolve my soul. Just a simple act of managing my thoughts to keep them positive is a step in the right direction. Those who succeed in the growing spiritually in the denser planes are freed from the endless struggles billions of soul have, doomed to repeat with reincarnation. Only until we finally "get it" do we graduate to a higher plane of existence where heaven truly is. These are the ideas that Mr. Buhlman tries so hard to teach us in this book. I highly recommend it for those looking for answers on spiritual growth.
Part 2 is a little reminiscent of Buhlman's "Higher Self Now" where it's illustrated how we can do some work while we're here on Earth to better transition our consciousness after death. We can also help loved ones who might be nearing their time on Earth move over to the other side by encouraging awareness for them.
Clear and practical concepts that do not require any fru-fru gurus, religion, or fanatical nonsense. The message hits home for me in some deep, buried part of my subconscious. We've lived and died many times, we are not novices. The power to learn and expand is already here, we've simply forgotten. The programming we undergo when we're born on Earth is strong, but we can be stronger, if we stay committed to what we came here for.
I highly recommend this book (and other Buhlman works as well) if you're ready to take control of your own journey.
I have now read all of William Buhlman's books. You can see my book reviews on each of them on Amazon. I personally did not intend to read 'Adventures in the Afterlife', as I pretty much know what I will do when my time to transition from this physical existence arrives. However, I have a 90 year old parent who (after the transition of my father nearly 3 years ago) has been mentally preparing for the afterlife and asking many questions about what her life might be like with my father on the other side.
Since developing my own OBE practice, I have been chatting with mom about my own adventures in dreaming, OBE's and contacts with the non-physical. In one experience, after his death, my father came and spoke to me. I shared this with her and about my early experiences in the RTZ (real time zone). The RTZ is essentially a mirror copy of our physical reality (but it is not physical), and is energetically the closest reality to us. During our discussions, I could see that mom was not quite understanding all that I was talking about. However, she reads voraciously (fiction), so coaxed her into reading this particular book with me. She did.
Buhlman's book, Adventures in the Afterlife, was the perfect context from which to share my own developing perceptions and experiences with her. It does not engage the reader in techniques, but it does provide a complete, conceptualized, experience-based picture about what the afterlife might be like - especially for someone from a predominantly protestant family. After reading 3 of his books, I can tell you that Buhlman is excellent at conceptualizing difficult topics. So, I knew that I could trust him as an author to guide my 90 year old mom gently through an account of transition, the afterlife and possible reincarnation. This book did that very well, and this is why I am giving it 5 stars.
