Ask Erik: Free Yourself from Conditioned Thinking
Do relatives suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s visit living relatives prior to passing?
— Deborah B.
From Erik: In short, yes, they can. It depends on the person or soul and how he or she uses free will and on his or her level of detachment from the physical plane. It’s really no different from shifting consciousness to focus awareness in a different area to manifest there. The key with people with Alzheimer’s or dementia is that they are still in the physical state but are detaching from the Earth realm, so it’s easier for them to shift awareness. It happens automatically. For example, after I died, when I thought about something, I was automatically there. It’s the same for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
