So you are looking for and answer that fits what you have been told. Which means you are
not open to any other possible answers. There are many possibilities in life and the so-called
afterlife also has many different possibilities.
No one can really tell you what is going to happen to you when you die, because your death
will be as individual as the life you now live. Your experience after physical death is a continuation
of the life which you are currently nurturing.
the Tibetan Book of the Dead says that after your physical death the desires that you have held
within you come out of you and manifest as entities. The benevolent desires manifest as
angels and the malevolent desires manifest as demons.
They pull on you, according to The Book of The Dead, and fight for your attention. I guess it all
comes down to what you want to believe. Regardless, you'll find out for sure, as we all will sooner or later.
