What do we look like in the spirit world?

We can choose to look like whatever we want as spirits. However, when they show themselves to a psychic medium who is giving a reading to their loved ones, most people in spirit will show themselves in a way that you’ll best identify them. This is also true if a loved one in spirit visits you in a dream.
What we need to remember, though, is that our loved ones are more likely to show themselves in a reading or dream as healthy, as opposed to sick or injured. Who wants to be remembered as sick or injured, right? Therefore, even if they died appearing old and decrepit, they are unlikely to visit you in a dream looking that way. If necessary for the purposes of being identified, they might show a psychic medium that they looked old and decrepit when they died, but they will often let the psychic medium know that they are not this way any longer. For their sake and yours, they want everyone to know that they are healthy and vibrant in their spiritual bodies.
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, the truth is that people in spirit don’t need to look like anyone since our true nature in spirit is energy and light. Many people who have had near-death experiences have said that they saw people in spirit as beings of light. Interestingly, even if you died and met a friend in spirit who you only saw as a being of light, you would still be able to identify her as your friend. And, if you or she preferred, she could also show herself to you with the appearance that you once knew her in her human body.
It’s helpful to keep in mind that we have each lived hundreds or thousands of lives. Therefore, as spirits, we can choose the appearance of any one of those human bodies we’ve inhabited. That’s pretty cool when you think about it.
At the same time, since we can be, do and have anything we desire while in spirit, we could also choose to appear in any way we desire. Not that we would fool anyone with an alternate appearance, since our identity would be easily recognized from our energy and light alone, but it gives us unlimited options on what we can look like, at least. I guess in this way, it’s kind of like living in Hollywood.
