What happens after our last reincarnation?

What will happen to us after we complete our reincarnations, having reached the end of the Old soul stage?

Throughout the reincarnational process, each soul can be thought of as a “fragment” of a greater whole. During reincarnation, the fragment seeks to fully realise itself as an individual in its own right.

After reincarnation, the self-realised soul now comes to unite its consciousness with others from its own “family” of origin as they also complete reincarnation. This occurs on the mid-Astral plane. In all, there will be around 1,000 soul-mates converging like this.

Once all members of the entire “family” or “entity” has completed and reunited, there are two further stages of evolution to undergo — stage 6 and stage 7. These take place in the non-physical realms.


Stage 6 and the Transcendental Soul

In the 6th stage, a higher order of consciousness emerges on the Causal plane. Here, the wisdom, life experiences and understandings of the entire reunited group are integrated, forming a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts — a “Causal Body” or “re-integrated entity”. Any sense of fragmentation now disappears.

Many channelled teachings are from souls undergoing this stage, including the Michael teachings.  The being we call Michael is actually a re-integrated entity made up of precisely 1,050 souls who have completed their reincarnations and are now going through the 6th stage.

Through this cycle, the souls experience a unity of consciousness in which their individuality, while still there, is no longer important. Collectively, however, they will still perceive a difference between self and other, or created and creator. That difference is finally resolved for good in the second post-reincarnation stage

There is no need for souls at this level to reincarnate. However, the group can elect to send a representative into physical life as a way to educate and inspire human society in some way. An incarnate soul from a re-interated entity is known in the Michael teachings as a Transcendental Soul. In history, however, we recognise them as realised masters. Examples include:

  • Socrates
  • Mohammed
  • Gandhi
  • Paramahansa Yogananda

Such individuals tend to have easy access to the higher moving or “tantric” Center, in the sense that they know how to bring spiritual energy into their mundane life.

Transcendental souls (from stage 6) will sometimes incarnate to herald and prepare the ground for the coming incarnation of an Infinite soul (from stage 7).

Stage 7 and The Infinite Soul

Stage 7 is the final stage of evolution, where consciousness finally merges with the infinite presence and eternal life force of all-that-is — the Tao.

By the end of this stage, the consciousness of souls is effectively at one with the creative power of the universe. Individual thoughts give way to infinite consciousness; individual feelings give way to infinite bliss. The consciousness now comes to experience and know itself — paradoxically — as both creator and created, both the source of evolution and the end product.

Again, there is no need for such souls at this level to reincarnate. However, on rare occasions they can descend into physical manifestation to help jump-start a mass shift in consciousness.

A manifestation at this level, known as the Infinite Soul, is an embodiment of ultimate Truth, Love and Unity — in other words, an Avatar or a living god. Examples include:

  • Krishna
  • Buddha
  • Jesus Christ

An infinite soul is a representative from the upper causal plane, who is, in turn, channeling through a universal quality from one of the three high planes: love, truth, or beauty. — Michael Chat with Shepherd Hoodwin: Soul Age, Part II

It is not that the Infinite soul will inhabit a human body from birth. Personalities are not designed to sustain that amount of energy. Rather, a self-realised soul (i.e. a 7th-level Old or Transcendental soul) will incarnate and then, at a prearranged moment in adult life, give way for the Infinite soul to manifest, either partially or completely, for the remainder of that incarnation.

Siddhartha Gautama, for example, was a realised soul who in adult life gave way to the Buddha, a manifestation of perfect Unity.

Jesus of Nazareth was a fully realised King soul who in adult life gave way to the Christ, a manifestation of perfect Love.

From what I can gather, even after the final stage we are forever free to choose to undergo the whole grand cycle again for the sheer thrill of it!

  1. Am I the only one that finds the thought of the loss of individuality depressing? Maybe I just don’t understand it well. I like the idea of connection but I’m not too comfy with becoming merged.
    Excellent sight you have here.

    • Loss of individuality … It’s not loss of self, as I understand it; it’s a gradual expansion of the sense of self to include others, all life, the universe, the source. It’s like awakening from a dream. At the end of each incarnation you as a soul wake up from the dream of being a single, mortal, human personality. At the end of all your incarnations you you wake up from the dream of being an individual soul fragment – you are still ‘your self’, it’s just you recognise it as the very Self of all that is. Your earlier adventures in separate identity are all still part of ‘you’.

      Thanks btw!

  2. Thank you for replying! It’s really profound and hard for me to wrap my head around but I really appreciate you explaining it!

  3. Hello! I stumbled upon your site quite some time ago, and continue to read for the fun of it. The things you cover make a lot of sense to me, and I’d like to think I’m not the only one! A lot of wonderful insights to ruminate on. Thanks!

  4. The last comment mentioned if we would like, we can start the process all over again. However, from what I understand, once we gain knowledge when it comes to spiritual growth, we never lose it. Thus, how can one go from an old soul (last stage) and return back to an infant soul? I do not think it is possible. In this lifetime, I remember a lot from previous lives as I think we live them simultaneously. How can those possibly be wiped out?

    • Hi. It’s not that we go from being an Old Soul back to being an Infant Soul, exactly. Finishing off the Old Soul stage only means that we are done with reincarnation. Or to be more precise, incarnating in the same physical form no longer holds any great learning value. After completing reincarnation we continue to evolve non-physically, and in unison with our soul mates, into more and more expanded consciousness. There are further stages to go through until – in effect – we know the creator/source as ourselves and vice versa. There is no distinction between oneself and infinitely many others – we are all God, the big “I am”. And there is always the option to go forth again into the experience of fragmentation.

  5. Thank you for your response. What you had said is what I had felt to be true in my heart.
    Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

  6. Although I knew I was “me” at an early age, it took over fifty years to reach the point where I longed to consciously re-connect and live the remainder of this life as my “true self,” vs. as my developed personality/ego self. I am also very tired of life in general and prefer to be alone to contemplate my existence, and to transcend this physical realm while still here to experience true love, joy, peace and happiness from my Soul’s perspective.

  7. Were just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year. Running over the same old ground of how we found, the same old fears, WISH YOU WERE HERE!! The conscious mind, once fully aware, is trapped inside itself until your physical realm wastes away, hence the reason for beings wanting to constantly self destruct themselves and others. If there’s no pearly white gates to a kingdom in the clouds filled with infinite devine bliss then this has become another shit show to the original faires and unicorns shit show! 😆😒 the shit show sequel, and we all know how the seconds never better than the first. If I have to create my own fantasy and make myself believe it then that takes the fun out of it! Seeing is believing! They are windows to the soul! Arise! Awake! Come forth! Judgement Day is upon us

  8. I have been searching for answers for as long as I can remember. As I’m sure most people are. I have drew my own conclusions based on many odd happenings and feelings I’ve had in my life. The Michael teachings are very similar to what I believe. My only problem with all of this or any religion or belief system is WHY??? What is the ultimate purpose. Why do we need to experience all the things in life. What is there after the seven stages. That scares me the most. What are we being prepared for…and why are there more souls being created. Will it ever end. It almost feels like someone building an army and we are all going through a boot camp of sorts to create the perfect soldier.

    • You are asking very legitimate questions from a human perspective, but the answer requires a different perspective.

      As human beings we see that life is short and painful, death is tragic and inevitable, and we think, shit, if some higher power is behind it all then they had better have a bloody good reason for setting it up this way.

      But whenever the doors of human perception are opened, suddenly we see the bigger picture very clearly. Each of us is the creative force of the universe itself evolving in consciousness and self-awareness. Each of us is an instance of the universe waking up to the joy of existence.

      As yet, most of us are barely awake. We open our eyes and see nothing but people and objects and events that are beyond our comprehension, but which nevertheless affect us. We see ourselves as victims of life rather than as creators. That’s just the nature of consciousness when it has yet to fully discover its own true nature.

      It takes a multitude of different life experiences for us to get how we are powerful creators rather than passive victims. It takes a multitude of different life experiences to realise that we can create joy rather than suffering. And that’s precisely why we choose to be here.

      We are not being prepared for anything. This isn’t The Matrix, or a prison camp, or an endless wheel of torment. Unless, that is, we BELIEVE it is, in which case we will perceive it that way until we choose not to.

      This is a game world for infinite varieties of consciousness to encounter and explore and ultimately enjoy their own existence.

      We are here because we want to be. We want to wake up to the full light of our true nature, not wallow in darkness. Our purpose is to make our own choices, learn from each and every experience, and enjoy more and more of our freedom to create whatever experiences we wish for ourselves and others.

      Life is as we make it, and we all have the potential to experience life as joy, freedom, greatness, beauty — whatever we like — from the moment we decide to create it that way.

  9. Dose this means that there’s no being responsible for the creation of our souls? In other words that there’s no God?

    • God or no God … It’s a matter of perspective, really – how we come to frame our spiritual beliefs, perceptions and experiences.

      In normal everyday life we generally perceive ourselves, others, and everything else as many separate things, and we perceive how different things can interact in different ways – physically, intellectually, competitively, cooperatively, sexually, and so on. That’s pretty much life as we know it ordinarily.

      So that’s our normal baseline, and if we have a spiritual belief system, or a spiritual experience, then we have to somehow integrate that perspective with that baseline (if we want it all to make coherent sense, at least).

      One of the functions of religion is to teach “the unenlightened masses” how to make sense of ordinary life with the aid of a spiritual belief system. Many – perhaps most – people go through life with no spiritual experience or personal contact with the spiritual dimension; their only spiritual sense is the belief system they have acquired from their religion. Typically, they will integrate their spiritual beliefs by simply assimilating them into their baseline perspective. In other words, their spirituality becomes an extension of everyday reality, the sense of separation. The spiritual dimension is framed as a *separate* reality beyond this one, a realm called Heaven; and the universal intelligence or cosmic consciousness driving it all is personified as a *separate* being, an almighty God.

      Personality also comes into play. People who have a nervous disposition might personify God as an all-seeing, all-knowing cosmic chief of police. Those who have a humble or dutiful nature might personify God as a merciful master to be served. People who have a more wilful nature tend to personify God as an almighty King, whom it is best to be allied with.

      But then, it is always possible in life to have a transcendent experience providing direct insight into the reality behind the curtain of our ordinary perceptions. Either by deliberate truth-seeking or by sheer accident (spontaneous awakening), we can suddenly realise the ‘hidden truth’ – which may or may not match our existing religious beliefs – that the sense of separation is an illusion, a trick of the senses and mind. We might also realise that, behind the illusion, what really exists is an infinite/eternal intelligence, meaning, or purpose that unites ourselves, others, and everything else.

      Those who have a near-death experience, for example, often come to realise that our human minds create a version of existence that is like a dark soap-opera, whereas our eternal consciousness (which is what we are beyond the body) is an integral part of an infinite consciousness.

      Some people catch glimpses of that ‘hidden’ reality, or the beautiful light of cosmic consciousness, but not enough to identify their own consciousness/being with it. In those cases, the individual will tend to say “I have seen God”. Which is perfectly valid. They have witnessed the cosmic creative consciousness that is running the show, and God is the traditional name for that within most religions. What they have yet to recognise, though, is that they too, in essence, are an integral part of that same cosmic creative consciousness.

      It is possible, however, for people to directly experience their own identity with the divine, or the life force, or the light. For those who do, it automatically challenges the baseline perspective altogether. The sense of separation from anything at all, including God, is to them clearly a false sense.

      In this case, they will need to reconcile their insight into unity, divinity, and non-separation with the continuing sense of division and separation provided by the senses and the mind.

      Some, I’ve noticed, try to deny the existence of anything that isn’t obviously divine or perfect or whatever. This is valid, but they are overlooking the fact that the ordinary sense of separation is no accident; it’s also part of the perfection. (I struggle to remind myself of this every single day.)

      So, is there a being responsible for our creation? Yes. Is that being separate from our own being? No. How can that be? Because it is the nature of consciousness to create experiences for itself, and that includes the experience of being a zillion souls.

      As an analogy, the oceans are made of water, as are the clouds of water vapour droplets which evaporate from them, as are the raindrops which fall from the clouds, as are the rivers of rainwater which flow back to the ocean. All part of a global system of water that is static in some parts and continuously moving in others. Souls are like droplets and God is like the ocean. As such, we might be physically separate from the ocean, but we are nevertheless one with it in essence (water). We can identify ourselves as existing outside of the ocean (God) or as existing always within the global system (cosmic consciousness).

  10. Thank you so much for sharing all this knowledge with clarity and beauty in the true spirit of Oneness. My question is what happens when a soul that has gone through the very last stage of evolution, i.e., the infinite soul level, decides to fragment? Is that experience only akin to that of Christ or Buddha in the latter part of their lives? Or could it take on a physical body and become forgetful? Can there be regression from infinite soul to infant soul as well? Or is the flow always in the direction of growth alone?

    Also, in your water-ocean analogy, I feel that while the Abrahamic religions would compare ocean to God, the Eastern philosophies consider water to be God. Would you be kind enough to comment on that dichotomy as well please?

    • The infinite soul is a massive collective consciousness without fragmentation, one that is fused with the comic consciousness of all that is, that which we call God or the One or the Tao. It’s not that “a soul” decides to undergo the whole cycle again — it’s the divine impulse to do so because it’s what best serves the consciousness of the One.

      Water analogy: just different levels of perception. Most religions tend to personify the divine as a separate being. A big boss-man. Or in this analogy, a far-off ocean, unreachable by mere mortals. This reflects the level of insight of the teachers themselves.

      The non-dual version of Hinduism, advaita vedanta, sees only ‘water’ everywhere. In this analogy, water is formless creative intelligence; the ocean, rivers, clouds and drops are are forms of water. Buddhism regards all form as illusion and exalts the formless. Vedanta tends to see equal value in both form and formlessness – the two are identical.

  11. It seems there is still an end unless you want to kick around for the sheer fun if it. To me the question is what is beyond the human reincarnation? Is there something so glorious we are satisfied beyond belief or is all this for some greater scheme or beginning of something we have not been able to comprehend yet? It feels the explain action it about achieving a goal. But what exactly does that goal mean? I equate it to a gold medalist like phelps that has broken records beyond imagination and yet he is still a human gold medalist. Asking what’s next. Not sure if I am making sense to anyone.

    • It’s not that there’s some great reward or party awaiting us after all our reincarnations are over. The realm that is ultimately satisfying beyond belief is actually our home between all of our lives. We do not leave that perfection lightly. We come to Earth, into human form, for good reason — to experience contrast, conflict, duality.

      The aim of reincarnation is not to finish reincarnating. The aim of reincarnating is to become conscious enough to create our own Heaven on Earth, to bring the reality of perfect love and truth which we know between our human lives right here into our human experience. “To bring love where love appears not to be.” It might happen only in snippets, but when it does it is sheer joy. This sort of contrast (from darkness go light) cannot be experienced in our nonphysical Home, which is pure Light.

      At some point it no longer serves us to reincarnate – we’ve done our best at facing and transcending the dualities. Now we are self-realised souls. What serves us now is to focus on supporting younger souls who are still trying to figure it all out, and to work towards merging with the divine — not evaporating into the void, as some imagine, but consciously reawakening our identity with the One.

  12. Nice sharing… thank you… but, how about after the last reincarnation? Is there any reincarnation again? I’m sorry just wondering…

  13. Who is creating souls? What leads to the creation of souls i.e new ones every now and then? Because if souls get old, then in a particular time period all souls will get old and achieve the mission

    • Creation isn’t an event but a constant process, a cycle. There is no end to the mission – the mission is the eternal exploration of existence in infinite variety.

      The “who” behind it all is, if you like, the mind of God, the cosmic consciousness of all that is. However, that consciousness is not in any way separate in essence from the souls which are birthed from it.

      Souls do not literally get old, they just get wiser and more aware. As older souls “cycle off” (having finished reincarnating), more new souls are spawned out of the oneness. It’s a perpetual circle of life!

  14. I always have been taught that there are 7 planes of existence and between each plane there are 7 spheres, and as humans we are on one of the a sphere of the 3rd plane. The 4th plane is pure Astral and spiritual and after reaching that plane we can either choose to reincarnate or not to reincarnate. It just may take over 5000 years to get off this 3rd plane to advance to the higher planes. I have had two OBE (out of body experiences) so I know that the spirit can see, hear and travel. I have not had this wonderful experience in over 40 yrs so either I am not deserving of it or it is not necessary for my development. My health issues I know are Karmic related because all the stupid medical Dr’s know is drugs, drugs and more drugs that I refuse to take. They never try to determine the underlying cause of illness and only want to treat the symptoms because big Pharma fears curing disease because it affects their drug business. They do not teach curing disease in medical school only treating it with drugs.

  15. After reading this I still have one question. After dying do we remember all our previous reincarnations?

    Also…great posts! This is a great website with the right information. In my heart I accept this to be true. Because I know it is true.

    • After dying it takes us a while to dis-identify from the life just lived. We still think we are “Barry” or whoever. First we let go of the body and become free-floating consciousness. A soon as we realise that we are physically dead but spiritually alive, we are ushered to the Light. There we review the live just lived – which is a sort of ‘core dump’ of all our memories and experiences. That way we let go of the mental aspect of the life. Finally, we undergo a refreshing energy re-set in which we let go of the emotions from the life. So basically we let go of the physical body, mental body and emotional body associated with that personality. After that, we are able to regain our memory of previous lives and also have clear visibility of the lives to come (or at least planned to come, subject to change).

  16. Gives me trippy vibes haha, really good explanation, a guestion i have is when we come together as one do we remember the lives we lived and still can see our friends and family, is it like heaven?

    • Yes, we do remember the lives we’ve lived. Everything is stored forever in the cosmic memory banks. It’s just that we no longer identify with them so strongly.

      “Our friends and family” is a human perspective. We see and meet all of our soul mates between all lives, not just at the end of reincarnation.

      Our soul mates are not just our Earthly friends and family; they are also our Earthly enemies and rivals. We play different roles with each other in different lifetimes for the sake of exploring all possible experiences.

  17. Hi! Great insight you have there! But I’d like to mention my opinion if you do not mind, I believe that the moment one enters the 7th stage which is the last stage and full enlightenment as well as going into nirvana as the buddha has said, we never go back. It is because if I am correct, we become nothing and we become the universe spread out like space itself, therefore the only time we choose to come back and help others continuously is only when we are in the 6th stage, so no I believe we do not restart the cycle and we never go back again. We would not have that choice, unless as consciousness we choose to disperse ourselves and go back to stage one, I believe it is how new souls come about. Therefore saying that after the final stage we still come back is like a never ending samsara, because we would still have choice. So after nirvana there is no choice. I hope you provide more accurate information because inaccurate information can be very misleading to people and cause others confusion. I’m sorry if what I said has offended you. But as our last stage comes, the cycle stops therefore there should not be a choice to reincarnate again or else it would be a never ending cycle. Thank you once again for the knowledge shared. Bless you.

    • I simply provide the most accurate information I know. Buddhism, like all ancient religions and philosophies, is riddled with dogmas and doctrines. Buddhists tend to frame all of physical existence as a terrible lapse of consciousness into the grip of illusory form. This is a human misunderstanding. The phrase ‘never ending cycle’ implies that existence per se is a bad thing, something that is best avoided and escaped from. But this is not why we play the game of life. And we do play the game of life willingly and consciously.

  18. My question is now can we see god(our creator) after 7th incarnation??? And what really happens to the soul after 7th reincarnation , if the soul didn’t choose to reincarnate???where will the soul go???

    • Look around you now. Everything you see is God. Hard to believe? Look into the eyes of another human being and see the divine there. Or look in the mirror and see the face of God looking back at you. The idea that the divine is a separate person from the rest of us is not valid, just a human idea. After every lifetime, when we die, we get to see the full Light of the divine in all its glory — everywhere. That Light is ultimately all that is; it’s just harder to see while we are in physical form, but it is possible to feel it as ordinary love.

      Souls that do not choose to reincarnate simply stay in the Light, which is our eternal Home before, between and after all of our human lives.
