So the bottom line is that there is either a choice or no choice to return, and all we know about are the ones who did not cross over permanently? Yes?

It may be that there is more for that 'soul' to do - that they had originally chosen to do - in terms of gathering experience for consciousness evolution. It may be that they have done enough but could continue for the sake of loved ones. It seems there is variety in the factors of choice.
As to the ones who crossed over permanently, we may hear from them as well.
Rick, in my experience it was made very clear to me the 'portal' and my son's paternal grandmother being there in the vibration that she was in, which is kind of 'lower' frequency than others that were also there, was there not for me, but for my son. If I had insisted ....I'm not sure what would have happened
In my clair abilities, and my experience in the light explained the flow of energies so much more clearly for me, how higher frequency energies slow down to resonate at a frequency that can be interpreted in our energy fields. What is described as really vivid dreams - they of course cannot completely materialise, but they can do a pretty good energy impression of it. These dreams are always described as more real than normal dreams, and always have a residue energy impact on us, of 'truth'. It's because the energy of love is real, is eternally real, when it flows through the portals from one dimension to another it is innately recognised as such.
The notions of those who are out of body and have not gone directly into the light is also real. Whatever prevents them from doing so is individual. I know I'm going to sound la-la now, but in many ways (except for some of the dramatics) things like the main character in Ghost, and the Ghost Whisperer, are correct. In my experiences I've had encounters with very few that have not crossed over (four, two I know crossed over at a later time, two I have no idea) and many many (hundreds if not now thousands) with those who have gone into the light and have chosen to - to a degree reform / resonate at the frequency and with kind of like an open energy field of the memories of their experiences and personalities while in form in order to share something with someone still in form.
Now in science this is even harder to prove, but the proof (for me) is in the accuracy and the 'spirit' in which this personality and memory of experiences is communicated and shared. Oh, and I've had one authenticated from an embryo that was terminated but was still 'linked' by love to her mother, who in the first instance was adamant she'd never had a daughter, even though the message for her was bang on and helpful in her present circumstances. At the time I was participating in development and understanding stuff, testing the accuracy and willingly, consciously allowing myself to be a guided 'medium' through which these communications could be shared. This one with the embryo was amazing in terms of I can describe what they share of 'who they were' characteristics, resonances, memories, and knowledge, this one was incredible in terms of pure love - with my mentor I was saying it's as if she never had a thought, never 'sinned', never lived - and because I knew the pure resonance of my son's spirit, she was even purer and I had no thing to measure it against. In my logical reasoning I wondered whether this was what one born without a brain might feel like, in the light of the mother's denial and yet in the persistence of this amazing little ball of twinkling pure love, I could not let it go. She gave more and more 'proof' of things in her mother's life and in the reason she wanted her mother to know that she loved her absolutely, and still the mother denied her existence, saying that she'd only had two sons.
In levels of energy this entity was an absolute delight. Because it was a development thing we were at liberty to discuss and compare energies in a sort of side conversation and my mentor was somewhat stumped to explain it too. For me I 'knew' this child had 'never really lived', in even less of a way than my own son had. He had far more 'experience' of the physical relative to this one. Now the messages she was conveying were sweet, and practical, and confirmed by her mother.
After the session I couldn't let it go, I needed to understand this child. There was no doubt in my mind, body, spirit that there was a link with this woman, and that this woman was both accepting the message, and denying the entity. I went over to her and said, I am really sorry, this is a new energy level for me and yet she is so pure and so insistent are you sure you never had a daughter. She said again, no I only had two sons. Then she said "I did have an abortion, and that was a girl, but I've always felt wretched about it, she wouldn't love me like that."
umm, yes she does.
It amazed me no end, both the insistence of the child entity and the denial of the mother. The child had shared really specific information about her mother sadly playing a jewellery box music thing and how close the child came to her in love and joy - really really sprinkly, incredible of the most innocent love, she detailed how she was loving her mother when this male figure was being really mean to her mother, how she was sharing her energies of love with her mother to give her strength and courage and to know how worthy of love and respect she was - all of it wrapped up in the remorse that the child was trying to tell her she need not feel, the capacity of unconditional love and the okayness of all choices...
I asked the mother again because she'd said yes about sitting playing the jewellery box, she said she bought it because if she had kept the girl child she would have given it to her - she bought it for the daughter she denied having and would play it whenever she thought about her choice.
I have shared many, many messages and helped many people understand many things, even mysteries of someone's death made clear, but bridging this gap between absolute pure love, absolute pure love and this woman with a hardening of fear and guilt and shame.... how she would not allow herself to feel her daughter's love. It remains one of my most humbling experiences. When I went back to discuss it with my mentor it made everything I'd been saying about the energy make so much sense.
If only people could truly accept how powerful love really is.
