The Hathors, in their latest message (April 20, 2011), raise a subject that is difficult for many people – that of the significance and value of a conscious transition or death. Still, if we are to fully appreciate the opportunity that life is, it’s well to consider what they say.
I repeat as often as I can what I conceive the purpose of life to be in order to create a groove in the mind, so to speak, so that we move from thinking of life as random and senseless to thinking of it as ordered and purposeful.
The purpose of life for us as spiritual beings is to realize God. The purpose of having created life for God is, as I understand it, to experience Her/Him/Itself. Every time a being reaches enlightenment, God meets God.
Many of us reach enlightenment in our lifetimes. Some few of us reach enlightenment upon transition or death. God has so designed life that an opportunity to experience enlightenment is extended to all those who die in a certain manner. Some spiritual teachers will say that it’s necessary to transition consciously. Others will say that it’s necessary for the spirit to leave by a certain nadi or nerve. And still others will say that it’s necessary to remember God or the guru at the moment of transition.
Ramana Maharshi was observed to attend his secretary upon the latter’s passing and hold his hands in a position that encouraged a conscious exit by the correct nadi. But a noise occurred just before his transition which startled the secretary and caused his eyes to open. Consequently his spirit did not exit by the correct nadi and had to be reborn again. So when his mother transitioned, Ramana paid careful attention to see that nothing went amiss. This time he made sure that the spirit left by the appropriate nadi and his mother attained liberation, or moksha, upon her exit or mahasamadhi.
Some may say that the subject is moot because we will all be enlightened upon Ascension. I suppose the Hathors are raising the subject for those who choose to exit before Ascension. But, regardless of their intention, the subject is one which the spiritual seeker will probably want to know about.
Had I realized the full significance of what they say here, I might have achieved enlightenment during the vision I had in 1987. I was aware of the significance of each of the “actors” in my vision – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. But what I failed to notice until years later was the Void – the black night – in which all were contained. Too bad. That might have made all the difference.
Here then is a snippet from their latest message in which the Hathors discuss the value of remaining consciously in the Void after transition.

… One of the greatest difficulties for embodied beings is the transition state of consciousness you call death. This is due to the fact that all perceptual markers, including the five senses, disappear. If a person identifies solely with his/her material existence, he or she will find this transition state to be most difficult. This is because what she or he identified with no longer exists.
Although the physical world continues on, there is no input into consciousness from the five senses. It is as if the world has vanished and the body along with it. The great I Am, the central feature of transcendent consciousness, no longer receives information from the body, the five senses, or the external world. This can be deeply disturbing and disorienting for someone who has not directly experienced the other realms of his or her being.
Metaphorically speaking, you are like a vast tree, a Tree of Life, with many branches and many, many leaves and blossoms, and your current physical existence is just one of these leaves and one of these blossoms.
When a person passes through the transition state of consciousness you call death there are several options. If you are in a spiritual tradition the central figure of which is a guru, avatar or savior, you can follow the path of this being into the vibratory realm of his/her consciousness. In some religions this is known as heaven.
If you follow the path of a guru, avatar or savior understand that you are entering into his/her heaven, her/his vibratory attainment, and by necessity you enter also into his/her limitations in consciousness.
From our perspective the universe is infinite in nature, and by this we refer not to external space but to the interdimensional realities of your universe, and there is no single being in existence, from our experience, who understands and embraces all that is.
If, however, you wish to join your guru/avatar/savior in the death realms we have a few suggestions. One is to mentally call upon his/her name. This is an ancient understanding encapsulated in the Egyptian term Ren, meaning name. When you call upon the name of a spiritual being an aspect of him/her is compelled to move toward you.
If, in that moment of encountering your guru/avatar/savior, he or she deems you worthy, you will be taken by him/her into his/her heavenly realm.
For those of you in eastern spiritual traditions there are mantras connected with specified deities. Chanting these mantras mentally during death, or in the death realms, has the same effect.
For those of you who are not part of a spiritual tradition that follows a guru, avatar or savior, then the transition state of consciousness called death offers other possibilities.
As with the other two transition states of consciousness, the death realm has a void point, and its dominant features are stillness (silence) and darkness. All possibilities exist within the Void, but no actuality is in existence. It is like the acorn of an oak tree. The oak, the giant tree itself, is potentially within the acorn, but it does not yet exist.
So when you find yourself in the Void, which you will recognize by the fact that you are utterly alone in darkness and utter stillness, know that you are in the central nexus of your creative powers.
What you choose to create next will determine the course of your destiny and what worlds you will inhabit or realms of existence you will reside in. This is a critical juncture.
Many persons frightened by the darkness move to the light prematurely. And what they do not realize is that in their yearning they create the light. A portal opens before them, like a tunnel, and they can move into this tunnel of light, encountering those they have known before, thereby entering back into embodiment or other vibratory realms of existence without having fully understood the consequences. This is certainly one option open to you, and one that is often taken.
Another option, however, is to remain at the void point, residing in the Void itself, becoming aware of your Self as pure consciousness—transcendent to all phenomena.
If you reside in this state of awareness long enough without the need to create something, you will discover your identity as the great I Am. And from this point of awareness you can choose the circumstances of your embodiment. You can choose the worlds you will inhabit or the realms of consciousness where you will reside.
This latter method gives you the greatest opportunities, though it is the most difficult for most people. And the reason for this difficulty has to do with the fact that most humans find it uncomfortable to not have a body. The yearning for a body and the experience of the material world often draws a person from the Void prematurely.
In summation, due to the intensifying phases of the Chaotic Node many of you will find yourselves in transitional states of consciousness. Regardless of what level you find yourself engaged in, whether it be your personal life, the collective experience, or the transition state you call death, know that you are the creator of your reality.
