According to Zabdiel, there are two types of spirits on earth, which includes incarnates and discarnates. One is the type which realizes the earth is a place of learning, a location to mold their character, and then return to the higher spiritual spheres. The other is bound to the earth. Attached to earthly pleasures and material goods.
Zabdiel, in his communications to the Reverend G. Vale Owen, talks about the surprise of those who arrive at the spirit world unprepared for their new reality. Zabdiel tells us, “Many are very much surprised to find themselves allotted to a place of which they had heard with their outer ears, but had not further inquired as to its reality.”[i]
