What happens to us, human forms, after we die? Do we stay in eternity, aware as in life, or does something change?

I believe that anything is possible upon death. You wanna fly across the ocean? So be it. You wanna be Elvis Presley? So be it. I think that because I believe upon death we release all of our resistance and perceived lack. Every thought creates a new possibility- I think that's what "expansion" is. It's creating new ideas, thinking new thoughts. So we come forth into physical bodies and take on limiting perceptions... giving ourselves the opportunity to create even more.
So what happens when you die... well, whatever you want to happen. Some will meet God and go to heaven. Some will visit old family members, maybe to help them or let them know they're near. Some will meet their past selves.. some will feel all love they felt denied of in their physical experience... etc, etc...
That might sound contradicting... it's saying that many truths exist, even ones that seem to cancel others out. But believing that there can only be one truth is a limiting perception to me. The non-physical can be hard to fully grasp from a limited viewpoint.
I hope that was clear... :)
We have a life review, which is both wonderful and gruesome at the same time. We reunite with loved ones and pets who have passed over. And then once we are orientated to the new world, we spend some time resting, renewing aqauaintances, meeting new souls, taking classes and rejeuvenating. After some period of time (each person is different and each circumstance different as well!) we choose the next incarnation with the help of our guide(s) and come back into this plane to learn new lessons. I base this on the words of many people who have "died" for a period of time, and on what I have learned in my studies. Best wishes!

the flesh is flesh,and as it is writen in the bible the dust return to dust. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." http://bible.cc/genesis/3-19.htm Remember him--before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well,and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. http://bible.cc/ecclesiastes/12-7.htm as for the spirit it returns to God if there is no darkness in it. God is light, and in him is no darkness at all; nothing impure or unworthy or sinful can enter into his presence. you must be born again of water and spirit to enter the kingdom of god. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Qx9GyA1jw if not it stay in this world and there is still some hope for you. after all is it not writen: Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. http://bible.cc/matthew/5-7.htm and if your light is darkness you know all ready where you go. so let there be light,be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.

I believe that before [probably choosing to come to] this "step" we were entities in another society, probably multi or cross dimensional, and probably holding incredibly larger life spans if not immortals(if time is even relevant).
I believe that when we leave this step, we can either go back up to the previous step (because I can think of no lower steps after this one. Animals perhaps, as not necessarily a "lower" step, but maybe tangential), or stay here, or come back new here.
While the above could be applied to an 'angels & demons'-esque interpretation, like God and Angels and we were angels before and will be angels again; and I do believe that is possible, that isn't exactly what I feel. I lean more towards a slightly different (though metaphorically equal and quite possibly literally equal in the explanation of things, who knows-)
I think life is an experience engine designed to keep all of the players entertained for an indeterminable measurement of time. Since I am speaking from inside the perspective of a 'player' in the simulation, I can't make any assumptions pertaining to the rate of flow at other levels of the simulation.
I figure there is a "home" space where we go back to in between 'adventures' or experiences, or dreams, or lives, whatever terminology feels most fitting for you. To me it makes sense to think that time is MUCH more inconsequential at all other levels of life, except if you go "down" to the animal or maybe even insect level, where time would go by much slower but it would be much more consequential, as your life span would be more limited.
I believe the other levels would be much, much longer, like dreams and/or drug trips can be. Like when you have a 15 minute dream that feels like it lasted for hours. Or on certain substances (like DMT and Salvia) you will trip for 10-25 minutes but your experience on the drug will regularly be hours, and in rare circumstances some people will perceive either the absence of time or extremely long durations, weeks, months, or even "eternity" as a descriptor used to explain the sensation perceived by the mind of the user.
I posted a link to a physicist a while ago talking about a 1 dimensional "hologram" (for lack of a better word) which underpins 3-dimensional reality.
From what I understood, this hologram could be described as being like a net, onto which the stitching of reality is sown. Or other people might call it "source".
It is 1 dimensional, because it doesn't recognise distances, and it doesn't recognise time.
I can't remember what the physicist said specifically, but paraphrasing: our brains/minds interact with the underlying holographic field in some way. Perhaps like a manifestation of information (I'm guessing), or as access points/interfaces between 3D and 1D.
A conclusion you could make (from the premise that our brains/minds/souls interact with a special uni-dimensional energy field) is that some essential part of us sinks back into the "hologram" after we die, to join the rest of the souls who have lived in some kind of "ether".
George Lucas might describe the hologram as "the Force". Maybe people live on in some way like Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker did. I hope you don't have to be a Jedi for this to happen.
I don't know if the science on the existence of the hologram is conclusive, or what conclusions could be drawn from such science, but from my experience, the revelation that there was something underlying all of reality which connected all of space and time was a confirmation of some unsettling experiences I had had. For the record, those unsettling experiences could quite reasonably be purely personal/subjective, and not occurring in external reality, as correlation does not imply causation.

D.E.A.T.H. -- Departing Earth And Trekking H‘om’E; OM the vibration of eternity where there is no ending, only the rich mystery of new beginnings.
Meaningful: Steve Jobs final words, were “Oh wow oh wow oh wow.” Mathematical: Socrates drank the hemlock, and after his student thought he was dead, he spoke, waking long enough to tell his students that the universe is the shape of a child’s soccer ball.
Maybe they are connected? The reunion of science and spirit; their separation only in our mind.
All manner of death and dying spawn emotional, mental, spatial and spiritual hurricanes, storms that engulf and devastate the lives of those left behind when someone they love dies or otherwise exits their life.
What about God, others ask… When this list of words appears, God usually comes to mind; Eternal, infinite, immutable, indivisible, self-existent, omniscient, pure, omnipotent, faithful, all sufficient, majestic, omnipresent, holy, divine, sovereign, triune, gracious, compassionate.
What if we thought about ‘the Divine’?
Change is change; and another word for change is Time. All of the words above apply to Time.
Either we learn to deal with it in healthy ways or we suffer the consequences. Simply put; we resolve our emotional issues and evolve or we die. While not all change is physical, if we fail to respond to it in an appropriate manner, it often leads to physical consequences. In the presence of trust, respect, honour and yes, love, even though physical death cleaves those who love, there is a sense of loss but no sense of separation, the emotional, mental and spiritual bond remaining in place for the lifetime of those who remain. Conversely, when trust shatters, a spiritual bond is broken and respect bleeds away, mental distress quickly leading to emotional ruin. The penalties are often physical break downs, words inflicting wounds as the shards of broken promises quickly severe what might have once been strong bonds.
It is time to bring our noble ideas down to earth; the greatest challenges humanity faces is not talking or thinking them to death. It is time for responsive positive action; Our values are what we are willing to live for; Life is for the living.
Squeeze the juice and pass the cup, there is enough for one and all!

I belive alot of us might not even realize we are dead, beacause you will feel very much alive. when you realize you had died you might think of your body, and then you will be instantly infront of it. Then if you notice someone walking in that room allof a sudden you are right next to them. You start realizing that whatever you think of you make happen instantly. If you had kids and you think of them you will istantly be right there beside them. You will start to feel a sense of freedom and happiness once you start to realize you are incontroll of what happens. If you want more information about this there is a great book called Conversations with God. there are 3 of them and it is good to read all three but in book 3 it has a great deal of information about what happens after death. The book is written by Neale Donald Walsh, hope this helps

Energy can not be destroyed only created or transformed. Now we must think does this hold true for consciousness?
It seems have we to believe our holy books yes it is the same and so as consciousness changes from this body.
So if this consciousness transforms upon death, then where does it transform to?
We must think again of what we are told from those books of Heaven and Hell, when you hear of near death experiences people have had experiences that match those descriptions.
I have a similar type of view somewhat to this...due to information I got through a meditation where I met I guess my guardian...the one that is there when you pass on or before you pass on as well. One glimpse as there are as someone else stated different things can happen at death. I was shown what can happen for some - traumatic type death. The guardian can put the soul to sleep...and allow the soul to awaken few very short moments to understand what has been happening...for instance girl dies in that moment soul is connected or aligned now, guardian puts soul to sleep, soul reawakens in coffin no feelings but realises coffin ....guardian puts soul back to sleep...the soul knows the guardian and can be annoyed it's being put back to sleep...then soul reawakens...guardian does not put back to sleep but waits for soul to go with him to next realm. Soul has free will here...a soul can hang around for years (human) due to trying to remember something...for instance not knowing something that's on the tip of their tongue such as they have a family...when finally remember they may go back to family...and could have a devasting effect on them due to the fact years has actually gone by rather than still in one day. At this time a soul can feel anger and can then choose to go with guardian.
What I'm a bit confused about is reincarnation...from what guide showed me...only enlightened beings have the choice to come back to human form...enlightened beings were once human but have evolved which takes a long long long time to get to that state via the realms. Though with 2012 onwards things could be changing due to time speeding up.
