Where is Heaven?

Where is Heaven?

February 28, 2024

If you’ve experienced the passing of a loved one, you most likely have asked yourself, where are they? Or where is heaven?

As a child, I thought heaven was in the sky. I imagined God sitting on a big throne, watching and judging us from the clouds. I understood that if we were “good,” we would go to heaven, and if we were “bad,” we ended up with the monsters—someplace I knew I didn’t want to go!

The Bible states that heaven is God’s dwelling place. He made the heavens and the earth. It’s a parallel universe where everything happens according to God’s will. 

What if I told you that God dwells within us and that heaven is right here with us now—that there’s only right here?

Quantum Physics has come a long way, establishing that everything, including us—our spirit and body—comprises energy. Energy never dies. It only transforms. 

What does that mean?

“As we know through thermodynamics, energy cannot be created nor destroyed. It simply changes states. The total amount of energy in an isolated system does not, cannot, change. And thanks to Einstein, we also know that matter and energy are two rungs on the same ladder.” -Futurism https://futurism.com/the-physics-of-death

Not to get too much into the weeds, but you and I don’t die. So, what happens to the “energy” that makes you, you? It changes state, or, as my husband says, he just walked into the next room!

When my husband Chuck passed, I wanted to know where he was and what he was doing. He used the analogy of him being in the next room. 

We have two separate living rooms. Chuck would watch TV in one, and I typically sat in the other. We would constantly holler at each other to turn their TV down.

Chuck described heaven as, “You couldn’t see me in the other room, but you “knew” I was there. You could still hear me and recognize the evidence that I was with you.” 

Heaven is the same as our loved ones being in the next room. I can still hear Chuck and sense that he’s around me. Whether it’s a knowing or a smell or him moving a feather (yes, he’s done that for me, but more on that in another blog!)  

So, heaven is not a place. Instead, it’s a state of being. I’ve come to understand and believe that God/Source/Joy is not someplace out there but within me—a part of me. 

It’s like a disco ball. There’s only one light, but thousands of little mirrors reflect that one light to make the room sparkle. Your soul is just one of those many mirrors shining the light of the one true light. This one light always connects us.

I’ve read that when a loved one passes, we are not permitted to talk with their spirit. As a practicing medium, I don’t believe that! 

For example, when I go on vacation, I can’t wait to tell my family about my fun. I also contact friends to say hello and discover what’s happening in their lives. Why wouldn’t our loved ones who pass to the next life not want to do the same?

Another example that heaven is all around us is the internet. You don’t see those energy waves in your living room, correct? You “know” that it works because you play games on your phone and stream movies on Netflix. You trust it’s there. 

It’s the same with heaven. Your loved one hasn’t left. They have just moved into a different frequency. They are no longer confined to the 3rd-dimensional world and body and vibrate at a higher frequency like the internet waves. It’s kind of like a world within worlds. 

So, the next time you look at the sky and wonder where heaven is, look around and try to see beyond what your physical senses tell you. Breathe in the light of heaven because it’s all around you!
