There is a Heaven but No ‘bad Place’
Dear Bonnie: Do you believe in heaven? And if so, do you believe there is also a “bad place”? I often wonder if this is the bad place and if we are good, we go to heaven. Terrible things seem to happen here on Earth that just can’t be explained. I did not grow up in a loving family environment, and once I was out on my own, things just never got better for me. Relationships seem to fall apart, and every dream I dare to dream just doesn’t happen for me. -- Anne
Dear Anne: I absolutely do believe in heaven, and as a medium, I can assure you it does exist.
I know it’s easy for me to say since I work with spirit and heaven every day. As a medium who does this work for healing purposes, I see a lot of hurt in the world and certainly circumstances that happen for which there are no answers. I can only tell you what I have been shown and heard from the spirit world.
Early in the beginning of opening up to spirit and using my gifts, spirit would show me in my dream time how beautiful heaven is. I would come into consciousness and be brought to a beautiful field with flowers and grass, skies so blue, colors so much more vivid and bright. I was shown all the animals walking together in pastures that had no fences, animals that here on Earth would be natural enemies but in heaven are nothing less than loving.
One night, I sat straight up in bed with amazement as they let me hear the music that is played in heaven, so much more magical than you could imagine.
It sounds like a fairy tale for sure. I feel I am no more special than anyone else, but I am here to teach the things I see and hear so that others will know for certain that heaven does exist.
I sometimes now wake to see and hear myself having complete conversations with those I love on the other side. I don’t always remember what we were saying, but I do get to see a little of what’s taking place. One night, I even woke up knowing I was in heaven having a conversation with my mom.
To answer your question (about the bad place), I assure you that there is no fiery existence as has been depicted in the movies. I was shown that this “place” exists only as a collection of your own thoughts and state of mind, and when we pass from this state of consciousness, we bring these thoughts with us to the other side.
In heaven, there are many levels of enlightenment. For example, if you have learned your life lessons, and your soul has grown and expanded, you would start at a higher level than someone who has made bad choices for themselves and others. They would start their journey in heaven at a lower level until more light could be brought to them. Light always takes precedence over dark, just like good always conquers evil.
We are all God’s children, and he doesn’t want to punish us -- he wants us to become the most loving version of ourselves that we can be. Earth is our classroom where the lessons are learned.
We will never live a life without obstacles to overcome or hard decisions to be made. They are the lessons we need to go through and learn from, giving our souls the opportunity to learn the unconditional love for others and ourselves.
Your life is all about making choices. Choose wisely for yourself, and Earth might seem a little more like heaven.
