In light of the "right to die" controversy in the USA regarding
Terri Schiavo, we discussed this situation with LIGHT.
For those not in the US: Ms. Schiavo has been in a "persistent
vegetative state" for the past fifteen years. Medical
science has said there is "no hope for recovery". Her husband,
who nursed her for some time hoping for recovery, let go of his
hope and has been trying ever since to have her feeding tube removed.
His claim is she verbally said she would never want to be kept
alive by machines. She left no written instructions to this
effect however. Her parents feel there is enough of Terri
there that they have hope she will recover and they believe is
aware, at least part of the time. They want the right to
keep her alive so they can continue to hope and to relate to her
as she is. The courts have become involved and at this time
the feeding tube has been removed. It is said it will take
a couple of weeks perhaps for death to occur. It has been
five or six days since the tube was removed. I (Pamela)
asked only a few questions regarding all of this. More occurred
to me afterwards (of course). But what was gained
is fascinating and we share it with you here. (In this case
LIGHT was speaking through Dr. Hugh while he was in an unconscious state
P: is Pamela and L: is Light.
P: There is a woman in a vegetative state who
is in the news as they argue whether to remove her feeding tube
or keep it in.
LIGHT: Yes, in the state of Florida.
P;: I am curious. In this womanís case, is her
spirit still present with the body or not?
L: That spirit comes and goes. The spirit is not
omnipresent but from time to time you might say checks in with
the body and out again. The spirit is very free, freely out of
the body most of the time. The animal body and the cells are still
able to carry on but there is not much spiritual activity for
the spirit is gone, being bored with the vegetative state of the
P: Why does that happen in a case like this, why
doesnít the body die?
L: Well, you see, sometimes there is a lesson
to be learned from the body. Remember we talked about the body
being one part - the animal body - and the spirit being the other
L: Sometimes the animal body has a lesson to learn.
What better lesson than rejection?
P: So the body is experiencing the lesson of rejection?
P: Itís been rejected by the spirit that lived
L: Well, thatís part of it. Was rejected by a
failure to keep the bodyís chemical balance. It was rejected by
the husband before that. There was a lot of rejection in this
P: So itís impossible to say itís better for the
parents to keep her alive or to let the body go? Thatís between
the parents and the husband I guess, right?
L: Thatís right and we wonít interfere, you know
Note From Pamela: If you think of the "animal body and
its cells" as the "nature spirit" of the body and its cells, this
message will be clearer. There are two spirits in most
human bodies, bonded as one. There is the spirit of the
body - what we can call the animal spirit or the nature spirit
- and there is the "other" - the one that comes from levels
of spirit other than the earth levels. All Spirit is
part of GOD but spirits that embody originate from different
realms and levels of spirit. There are "Earth Spirits" or
"Nature Spirits". This is the spirit remaining in Terri's
body. It seems this spirit also has lessons to learn and
to teach. It is, at this time according to LIGHT, of minimal
awareness, but when it leaves the body it will be fully aware
of all that occurred and will choose how it feels and thinks -
whether it chooses to embrace the love and care it was given or
So many questions flow from this, most of which I know
LIGHT is addressing in LIGHT'S book. You might ask
Questions such as:
Does the "other" spirit in the body - that which does not come
from the Earth - choose the body whose spirit will be meeting
the lessons it also needs or does the "other" spirit influence what
the body and its spirit will meet?
So much to ask. Why not keep a Question Journal?
Ask a question of LIGHT. Ponder it in a meditation
for thinking deeper. Note the answer or guidance you receive.
Keep the journal. Compare it with what LIGHT
