My brother man and sister woman, in the past when my spiritual perception was quite low, I thought the dead has no business with the living. I thought it was all over the moment this pronouncement is made may his or her gentle soul rest in peace. I thought death was a journey of no return. Retrospectively, I was wrong. Now, I know better. Now I know countless dead people have not ascended into the next life. They are still wandering about planet earth. They are earth-bound souls. Now I know that countless dead people are no more with the living because they have truly ascended into the next life, but many of them, still behave like bad girls who sneak out of the hostel into town, just to go and have some fun with their boyfriends for few hours and rush back to the hostel again. Many dead people have truly, successfully ascended into the next life but they cannot forget the good times they had while alive on planet earth, they cannot forget the beautiful sister women they were so into, they cannot forget their earthly investments, money, enviable earthly achievements etc. And because of their inability to forget the good times they had while alive on planet earth, they keep making strenuous effort to come back to planet earth so that they can continue from where they stopped. Now imagine this, a rapper, age 25, is making waves in the industry. Everybody is talking about him. Imagine his musical video, he is dancing hysterically, with beautiful half nude ladies, imagine the glittering and blurred lights, okay. Imagine the musical awards coming his way. In a twinkling of an eye he erected a magnificent house, acquired fleet of cars, avalanche of girlfriends etc. At the age 31, on his way to the studio, he died in a fatal automobile accident. Few weeks later he is buried and the usual pronouncement is made, may his gentle soul rest in peace. I don’t think such a glamorous brother man who died suddenly will rest in peace. Oh, I almost forgot, you remember Tupac Shakur, a young popular rapper, he was shot six times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. You think the soul of such a person will truly rest in peace? Enough preambles, lesson proper. I intend shedding light on earthbound souls and Earth attracted souls.
Let me straightway commence with Earth-bound souls. My brother man and sister woman, why are many dead souls earth-bound? Why are they still around planet earth? When in reality they should be in the spirit world, making effort to adjust to their new-life. Of a truth I tell you, obsessive attachment to material things, intense thinking of something, and persistent application of desire to some objects gives birth to mental fixation upon something upon something on planet earth. It is important I reel out some of the commonest forms of earth binding conditions. Grief and distress, calling upon the dead person to come back or go after the person or persons that killed you, or who will take care of the kids you left behind etc. are strong enough mental factors to bind the soul of the dead person to planet earth. Many people become so attached to their home or place of business, or money or their lucrative business or an attractive sister woman or brother man or landed properties etc. This attachment of theirs will dominate their character, their soul and the moment such people die and pass to the next life, they are unable to adjust themselves to the fact that they have lost their physical possession or possessions. Also if the dying person is obsessed with the desire for instance to tell something of great importance to his first, and he died without telling his son, such a dead person might become earth bound until he conveys the important message to his first son.
