  • I don't think they can :"look down" at people. I think their energy can reside around you...and on some level, they can "see" what you are doing.

  • yes, i do believe so. i can feel the presence of my grandpa on very stressful days and in times when i dont know what to do. he was always such a wise man and knew exactly what to say. maybe im just delusional, but yes i believe they watch over us after they pass.

  • I think their energy is still around, their body is gone therefore they dont have eyes like we do.

    I think that energy can sense us, if you will, and will strengthen us and comfort us if needed.

  • Me personally/my personal belief.

    No. When one dies, they are reincarnated. There souls return for another turn on the wheel. The keep going through the cycles of death and rebirth until they become enlightened ( reached detachment, have righted all their wrongs, learned all they were supposed to learn, have done all that they needed to do, have broken all karmic ties to this world).. Once enlightenment is reached, upon death the soul ascends and becomes one with the One Universal Creator, one becomes part of the universe itself.

    Since this is what I believe happens when death occurs. I do not envision people hanging out in some heavenly abode looking down on the rest of us watching how I live, watching what I do all hours of the day and night... That's actually a creepy thought to me.. LOL..
