As a teenager I am growing up finding things out for myself, developing my own opinion on things and just generally making my own decisions. But when it comes to this - I am torn. Just mainly because I haven't made my mind up about whether or not God exists and therefore I have had people debate with me over the fact that If I don't believe in God then I can't believe in the after life , blah blah blah. Again I am a teen so I am at the stage in life where I am making up my own mind about things instead of being told to think this and think that. I grew up in a non religious family however my Dad grew up with religious parents (my grandparents) and when they used to babysit my brothers and me they would talk to us about God , only let us watch religious tv programs and films, only read a bible and what not. I'm not angry that they did that, it's just made more curious I think. When it comes to the after life I am very curious about it. Much more curious than I am about God in fact. I don't think that you need to be religious to be able to believe in the after life, i just think you need to have your own thoughts and feelings about it and yeah.
WHAT I THINK THE AFTERLIFE IS AND MY THOUGHTS
What I think it is , is just a place where people go to when they pass away. Theres this star called the North Star and many people have said that it is the place that people go to when they have passed away (so heaven for the non religious haha). And I firmly believe in this. Why? I have an African Grey Parrot called Jack. He was my brothers pet. My brother passed away in 2007 at aged 22. On the week of his death my family and I were sitting in our living room when all of a sudden we heard Jack mumble something. It sounded like nothing at first but as we listened closely he was saying "North Star" in my brothers voice. Now none of us taught him that, and no one has ever said anything remotely similar to that. And as some of you may no , African Grey Parrots can only repeat what they have heard. And this ... well... it was just strange because at the time none of us knew what this "North Star" was. So I read up about it and loads of people came back to me telling me it is where my brother is. Another reason why I tend to believe in the after life is ORBS. Orbs are those white blurry circles that come up on pictures that have been taken. Many of them are just where the lens has reacted weirdly to the light, but other times I believe it isn't. My sister in law (who was married to my brother) had a picture taken of her in a pub my brother and her used to go to a lot. The picture had several orbs on her dress and when you zoomed into them, they were faces...and they looked like my brother.
I find it very hard to believe that there isn't SOMETHING after we pass away. I don't no whether or not this is just me hoping that there is something or if it is really a belief. I do hope there is something after as I feel saddened by the thought that I won't get to see my great great (etc) grandchildren haha.
But before I finish this I want to add something else
Claire Voyants. They puzzle and intrigue me. How would they know so much about you if you have never met them before? My mums friend went to see one and she went under a different name and this women still managed to find her son and dad that had passed away. She told her things that she hadn't told a soul! It just makes me wonder even more. Does it not make you wonder?
