Oryx, in some ways you are correct when you say that those on the other side are helped by other souls.
However, if a soul is very desecrated they cannot be helped by souls from the upper realms. As human beings alive in this world, we are spirits in a material body, a protective suitcase, which acts to protect the spirit to a certain extent from damage. If we become contaminated by lower vibrations our suitcase, our body, gives us the time to push off the contamination, the spiritual excreta, if you like. If an upper soul tried to help a desecrated soul there is a good chance the upper soul would absorb the contamination to such an extent that instead of raising the lower soul, he would "fall" to the level of the lower soul. This is why rescue work is so necessary . We, with our protective suitcase can do work upper souls cannot do.
However to do such work we need to learn gradually to accustom ourselves to lower vibrations, otherwise we too would become contaminated.
Perhaps I need to go further back and look at the basics, first of all.
Have you ever gone into a house that feels dark and heavy or been with a person who seems to suck the life out of you. If you have, you are sensitive and mediumistic and also experiencing the effects of a "lower" soul who is inhabiting the place or attached himself to the person. If you haven't you probably have very little mediumistic ability.
That soul is in what we call the "lower" realms, or in Christianity, "purgatory" or "hell". It is possible to take these souls and be using concentrated "kind thoughts", gradually raise them from their present condition into what we call the upper realms, the realms of goodness.
Now, you might find this crazy but it's work I have done for over 30 years. It is particularly satisfying for people like myself who can "feel" souls. We can feel what the soul is like at the beginning, the dark heaviness around the shoulders, and then we feel that heaviness gradually lift as the soul elevates, until when it enters the upper realms we feel tingles all over. It's an amazing experience. Gives great satisfaction. You really know you've done something worthwhile and you really get a "buzz" from it.

By the way we don't chase people. It's very much freedom of choice. You need to want
to do this. It doesn't work any other way.
Hope that helps.
