Hello Chuck, not a problem. We are all learning from each other.
I would like to make sure that I understand your question.
I think your question pertains to life after death. And you are asking how an IS-BE would identify and go to the good Light that will not coerce him back to earth reincarnation wheel.
In principle, after death the Veil of Forgetfulness casted upon an IS-BEs at birth, is lifted and the IS-BE becomes fully self-realized and remembers who he is really.
So, to answer your question, under normal circumstances, after death the IS-BE become fully self-realized and he knows that he is a Spark/Fragment of ALL-THAT-IS, with all the power and attributes of ALL-THAT-IS. Therefore, he has all the knowledge needed to answer any question, or deal with any situation.
And above all, the IS-BE knows that as a self-realized IS-BE he is a Spark/Fragment of ALL-THAT-IS, and like ALL-THAT-IS he can create life and energy including physical reality (solidified energy). Consequently, nothing and no one can entrap him anywhere, and certainly not in the physical reality that is an illusion that he has created in cooperation with other IS-BEs so that ALL-THAT-IS can experience physical life through the experiences and activities of his IS-BEs.
The point here is that nothing can entrap a self-realized IS-BE. But there is a major problem with some unrealized IS-BEs being trapped on earth.
The first cause of this entrapment comes from the strong gravitational pull that earth exerts on some IS-BEs that affects them so much that they believe that they are their physical bodies, and they forget that they they are IS-BEs and they have the potential to become self-realized. These IS-BEs are addicted to physicality and after death they cannot wait to reincarnate in a physical reality.
The second cause of IS-BE entrapment on earth come from parasite entities that trap unaware low vibrational frequency IS-BEs and feed on their energy. This form of IS-BE entrapment is the reason why organized religions thrive on earth.
Then, there is another group of IS-BEs who come to earth knowing very well that their memories will be wiped out at birth when the Veil of Forgetfulness is casted upon them. They also know that they may be stuck in earth reincarnation wheel. These IS-BEs are highly interfered with but they come with elaborate road maps and support that allow them to remember who they really are and become self-realized IS-BEs while living physical lives on earth. The idea is that if they can become self-realized while living on earth, so can other IS-BEs.
So to finally answer your question, a person who wants to get off the reincarnation wheel should consider going from a IS-BE to a self-realized IS-BE while living a physical life on earth.
