You say Devachan is a subjective world where we meet friends and relatives. My understanding of this teaching is that because it is 'subjective' we create our former friends and relatives into our consciousness. Not unlike a dream, but a dream where we direct the actions and the participants? This has always been a bit of a stumbling block for me as I want to believe that Devachan is not unlike the movie made by Robyn Williams "What dreams may come".
Would like to chew the fat on this one with others ideas.

According to the Eastern teaching the state of the deceased in Kama-
loka is not what we, living men, would recognize as "conscious". It
is rather that of a person stunned and dazed by a violent blow, who
has momentarily "lost his senses". Hence in Kama-loka there is as a
rule (apart from vicarious life and consciousness awakened through
contact with mediums) no recognition of friends or relatives.
We meet those we loved only in Devachan, that subjective world of
perfect bliss, the state which succeeds the Kama-loka, after the
separation of the principles. In Devachan all our personal,
unfulfilled spiritual desires and aspirations will be realized; for
we shall not be living in the hard world of matter but in those
subjective realms wherein a desire finds its instant realization;
because man himself is there a god and a creator.
