What Really Happens at Physical Death & How to Exit the 3D Reincarnation Cycle

We’ve all heard the term “reincarnation.” We’ve also heard tales about “the reincarnation trap” that have been proposed and told for centuries. But are they true — or is there more to our traditional conception of reincarnation?

Is this entire Earth experience really just some kind of cruel, deceitful set up orchestrated by a vengeful God, or nefarious, malevolent beings hijacking our reality? Is reincarnation even real, and if so, what is the true purpose of it?

My views about reincarnation – what it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s a part of this reality construct – has changed significantly over the course of my awakening journey. Like everything else in our reality, your perception of reincarnation will depend on how you choose to view it – from a place of love or a place of fear.

This article explores my understanding of reincarnation from as a secular, objective, and “truth seeking” perspective as possible.

First, let’s dive into what happens when we die.

What Happens at Physical Death?

When your experience inside of the Earth game in this lifetime comes to an end, you will come out of your body like taking off a skin suit, and become aware of it as you hover above it.

At this time, you will experience a rapid and profound expansion of consciousness.

After a brief period of disorientation, several entities will be there to help you adjust and acclimate yourself (you will never lose awareness or be alone). You will instantly recognize these guides and will innately trust them – even recognize them as long-lost friends.

We’ve all heard about the tunnel of light that our essence, our consciousness, enters upon leaving the physical body. The tunnel of light is so appealing because most people are greeted and escorted into the light by loved ones who have predeceased them. 

The light is actually an etheric connection road that leads back to another, higher plane of reality which is essentially the planetary collective consciousness. It is believed that at this point your memories and experiences from all other lives will be restored as the Veil of Forgetting is lifted from your consciousness.

You may find yourself in a beautiful garden, meadow, beach, or the like, surrounded by a complete and utter bathing of unconditional love magnified exponentially from anything we experience in this 3D world.

Following that — as has been recorded in great detail by researchers and therapists like Michael Newton and Dolores Cannon — we enter what’s known as a life review. But what’s the true meaning of the life review? Why does a life review almost always result in us continuously looping back into this 3D reality… and what can we do to stop this cycle of reincarnation?

The Life Review with Our Guides

We will all have a life review, and have had it many times before. During your life review, you see your life in a panoramic, 360-degree manner which includes all of the significant (and even insignificant) moments of your most recent incarnation.

According to thousands of NDErs and channeled souls on the other side, you’ll also see your life from the perspective of everyone you met within your previous incarnation. You may see how you hurt someone’s feelings when seeing your life from their perspective or you might see how much happiness you brought someone else after doing a kind deed for them without expecting anything in return.

To assist in comforting and guiding you during this presumably difficult process, you will be met with at least one or two advanced teachers who will counsel you through the life review — yet the same beings will apparently encourage you to come back to this 3D reality after some time, despite how happy you are on the other side. Sometimes this happens quickly, other times it takes years and years.

I am deeply appreciative of the divine guidance I receive, and I love my guides, but the question must be considered: is it possible that our spirit guides are merely trans-dimensional representatives for some kind of Archonic, Sirian, or Reptilian species who have kept us enslaved within these perpetual cycles of incarnations (think The Matrix)?

And is it true that the more karma we accumulate, the more time we’ll be spending here on Earth, down in the trenches and paying the price for our supposed “sins?”

Let me just say this: I suppose anything is possible… but the true nature of reality is much more complex than we know, and I do not resonate as much with these distortions as much as I was simply intrigued by them at the onset of my awakening.

Have you had enough of this sort of pessimistic, fear-based background information? Good, me too. Now I’m going to shift my focus to share my truth about reincarnation – which has little to do with malevolent ETs (yes, there is a control system which was put in place by infiltrating races, but this is for another article) and everything to do with the rules of this planetary reality construct we call Earth.

How to Exit the Reincarnation System

To understand the truth about the reincarnation system, we have to understand the purpose and mechanics of this reality construct as it relates to our consciousness and ascension.

Earth is the hardest game within the cosmos – and was intended to provide a very formative experience for advanced ascending consciousnesses. In fact, according to Judy at Quartz Crystal (the self-proclaimed most highly-achieved player of every Matrix game) you had to be a victor in 55% of the other Matrix games in-play to even be considered to come to Earth.

Up until this point, part of the RULES of entering into this planetary construct included:

Earth is a VERY risky and challenging endeavor – in fact, this was a life or death wager that each of us apparently made. This is where things get complicated, esoteric, and just outright far-fetched (so please digest this information to decide what you feel is right, and understand that this is my personal truth). We each agreed to have what’s called our “Source fractal” remain inside of the game, continuing to reincarnate until we beat the game… and if it couldn’t do it, it’d stay stuck in this Matrix forever, which Source would never shut down. Some 525 million souls have been swallowed by the Matrix Demiurge according to Judy.

However, evidence from channeled Pleiadian light forces suggests that a central Sun portal has NOW been opened and the reincarnation system which had remained a closed loop for 350,000+ years has been dissipated. This portal is being opened in conjunction with Humanity’s Grand Ascension event in which negative polarity is being eradicated from this galactic construct.

As a result, we may all be home free after this lifetime (though I’ve heard multiple times that as soon as you come out of the Earth experience you will want to dive right back in and that the line to get into Earth is quite long… so maybe reincarnation is actually a good thing!).

Up until now, achieving Enlightenment had been the only path to escaping the reincarnation system. What does that mean?

Exiting the Matrix: Achieving Enlightenment

Enlightenment refers to the amount of light that your “body” is able to hold. When I say body, I am referring to your light body, the density of which directly correlates with your state of consciousness.

Your body is just a vehicle which allows you to take on an incarnation in order to gain experience and add to your consciousness’s figurative bank account or repository of knowledge, experience, and wisdom. As our consciousness grows and matures, it accumulates more PHOTONS or LIGHT, gaining ever higher levels of PHOTONIC DENSITY.

Since more spiritually-mature individuals carry more light, they have better access and connection to God-Source energy which is why those pursuing the path of truth can begin to remember high-level truths. They invite greater, higher understandings about the order of the cosmos, the miracles of existence, and the actual nature of reality. Each individual is at differing levels of their journey toward enlightenment.

If you want to read more about the details of how enlightenment works, I covered it in greater depth in my previous article, The True Nature of Reality: We are Players Inside Our Own Mind Game.

My understanding is that reincarnation discontinues once an individual consciousness has accumulated the maximum amount of photonic density that can be carried within the physical vehicle which we temporarily take on to experience and ascend through this construct. And, believe it or not, our understanding of reincarnation as a linear or sequential process is actually incorrect.

“Each soul evolves by the apparent linear process of incarnating many times in a series of physical lives. But… our linear conception of this is wrong — all these lives; past, present, and future are all happening simultaneously! Our misconception of reincarnation as a sequential process is based on our misconception of the nature of time and our lack of understanding of the multidimensional nature of self…”

Jeff Street, divine-cosmos.net

So, all “past lives” are actually concurrent or simultaneous lives. They are all happening right now! Time as we know it is merely an illusion.

“The concept of #simultaneoustime is difficult for some of us to understand because as Spirits, we only project a small fragment of our #Consciousness (a holographic projection of your Self) into the #3rdDimension while #incarnating in a physical body on Earth. We only see one timeline because that fragment of our Consciousness is focusing only in the 3rd dimension. We don’t see all the other spokes on the wheel (or other timelines on other dimensions of the #cosmic spiral). We have other fragments of our Consciousness coexisting simultaneously on other #dimensions of the #multidimensional universes of the Cosmos. [We also have ascended parts of our Self beyond the Time Matrix.] ~~~ Since we only see one time track while living on this planet, we think that time is linear – that it has a Past, a Present & a Future. But in actuality, everything is happening simultaneously in the NOW. Time as we know it doesn’t actually exist but instead is a creation of Consciousness.” ⏰🚫 ▪️info via AligningWithEarth.com & via Dolores Cannon ── · 。゚☆: *.☽ .* :☆゚. ── #timeisanillusion #timetravel #timelines #highestself #reality #existence #whatistime #spiritualawakening #matrix #thematrix #conscious #consciousliving #awakening #thirdeyeawakening #thirdeyegang #vibratehigher #higherfrequency #cosmicconsciousness @pleiadiansoulhealer1111 @plant_conscious_energy @connecting_consciousness @cosmic.gateway @everything.aligns @youarecreators @pineal_truth @numerology3979 #thirdeye #consciousliving #higherconsciousness #dolorescannon #cosmicconsciousness

A post shared by Michael • New Earth Knowledge™ (@new_earth_knowledge) on

I tend to imagine all concurrent lives in a metaphorical sense as a multi-branched tree where all of the leaves represent separate yet energetically connected incarnations. You — your consciousness — would be the life force that runs through and enlivens each leaf. Once you win the game in one of the experiences, your energy simply comes out of all other lives (or leaves).

I view reincarnation as a gift which allows us to come to experiential completeness and spiritual maturity. We incarnate in order to gain a multitude of experiences and learnings, and ultimately to maximize progress on our path toward spiritual self-mastery.

We will continue this work until there is no point and nothing more to be gained by remaining in this very challenging Third Density construct called Earth.

I summarize my understanding of reincarnation below:


If part of the purpose of life is to awaken to the truth of who we really are by a process of self-realization and a reclaiming of our sovereignty as Source, we can come to realize we are not victims of our circumstances and that we are always in control.

Ultimately, your true peace will be found once you realize that you are The Creator of the experience itself, and you have the ability to create worlds and galaxies that are harmoniously filled with love outside of this system of control.

Part of the matrix itself includes fear-based distortions about reincarnation – and part of awakening is choosing to break away from them to dig deeper and find your own truth.
