The Afterlife is a term for what happens after a person dies. Generally, the spirit goes on to the spirit world. A person can still be conscious after they die. Sometimes they wonder what happened, and some even may not know they are dead for awhile. Some spirits are afraid to cross over and face judgment. These are the ghosts that haunt various places. When a spirit does cross over, often they will meet their loved ones and God. They may go to Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, or be reincarnated to evolve their Soul so they can climb higher in the spiritual planes.
