Would they warn us?

If SoulPhone™ technology were a working reality right now, would our ‘spirit’ friends warn us about pending disasters?

If reliable spirit communication devices were up and running today, would our guides, loved ones, way-showers, and luminaries have warned us about such looming disasters as Coronavirus, dates of destinies with hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, floods, tornadoes, and new threats like domestic terrorism?

For centuries people have had stories about some form of mysterious warnings. Often it boils down to intuition, a subtle yet noticeable feeling of dread about something. “I don’t feel good about this.” We have stories about people who did not take flights, cruises, rail adventures, or report to work, and lived to tell the tale when disaster struck where they would have been.

But most of those stories are about intuitive input. They aren’t about angels who appear in broad daylight to calmly suggest taking an alternate route that day.

On the purely human level, it would seem like a no brainer to warn fellow humans about impending disasters if we knew about them ahead of time. But when we deal with a greater reality, “normal” might be very different. The assumption that our ‘deceased’ loved ones might warn us about coming catastrophes could be misguided.

Why? Because they may see reality in much different terms.


If you’re in place where you know for certain that there is no death, that people just pop from one world to another like waking up from a dream, the whole perception of tragedy goes out the window. Tragedy is just not tragic anymore. It’s not even sad. Loss? What loss?

What’s tragic in this Earth School reality may be perceived as a cake walk in another reality. I imagine them gathered around an interdimensional TV set watching the goings on here thinking, “If they only knew!”

By some accounts, pain and suffering here is all part of the Earth School curriculum. Apparently we learn more through adversity, a process which helps us discern what is truly important in life. People who have suffered through incredible challenges often express the sentiment that as awful as it was, they learned valuable lessons from the experience. Losing sometimes becomes winning in the end.

Another question is whether or not warning us about something interferes with the sacredness of free will. Is it like cheating on exams or insider trading?

Many tragedies have human causes even when “nature” started it. A wildfire caused by lightning may burn down a town, but much of what defines the tragic is the human conditioning that accompanies the event.

Human conditioning includes the systems in place for dealing with events, the story-telling about those events (both personal and global), and our entrenched institutions. What that means is that people have created a “loser” consciousness about perceived setbacks, failures, and disasters. It’s in the fog of our mental and emotional DNA. When something bad happens, we click into a well-rehearsed tragedy consciousness groomed in us all our lives.

Postmaterial people may well view tragedy quite differently. They may see loss from disasters as learning opportunities for humans to care more about one another. Design better societies. Live more harmoniously with the planet. Reflect more on everyone’s needs. Better prepare for life’s upheavals. Support the tribe.

It may be a fairly normal tendency for humans to blame ‘spirits’ or God for letting disasters happen. Maybe they are just waiting around for us to get the hint and deal with the problems humanity created. Our expectations about SoulPhone technology should be measured around a greater reality consciousness—that we humans are not the center of the universe.

Note: None of this intends to suggest that if you or a loved one have suffered a tragedy, it’s not worth our compassion or it doesn’t matter. Some people may read it that way. This piece opines that embracing a greater reality means thinking beyond the psychology we’re used to.
