Over the last 30-years, as souls were periodically reaching out to contact me and over that time, I’ve been given extraordinary insight into what lies ahead for all of us when we transition to the other side. I won’t go into all the details of the heaven experience, since it is too complex to deal with here. So, for the purpose of this blog, I want to share what I’ve been told about everyone’s additional, personal heaven or second heaven, as I like to call it.
You see, heaven is more complex than we might believe. Perhaps that’s why this quote exists in the bible from Jesus saying, “In my Father’s house are many mansions.” (John 14:2 – King James Version). This was a metaphor Jesus spoke to his apostles at the Last Supper and religious scholars are still dissecting each word for Jesus’ precise meaning. I have my own interpretation based on what souls, already there, have shared with me.
Although heaven is one glorious place, permeated with love to such an extent that the peace and joy one feels is beyond measure; in other words, the stereotypical heaven does exist. The many elements or mansions that lie within the afterlife are tricky to describe since some are holographic in nature and frequency plays a role in the total explanation. But, briefly, there’s a place for a decompression of sorts, a large soul healing area (for reflection, communication and future planning) and the personalized heaven which is different for everyone. This is the portion of heaven that I refer to as The Second Heaven.
One of my dearest friends who passed in 2011 came to me shortly after his death because he wanted me to know how amazing heaven was. It was pages and pages of description and much of what Jack shared with me was later echoed by other friends, family and even strangers who have come to me since. The duplication in the overall description leaves little room for doubt. So, let me share a bit of what Jack told me in a direct quote when he was explaining to me the scope of his glorious experience:
“Then the “nature on steroids” heaven.”
Jack was beginning to describe what came next.
“Seems to me everybody would interpret this differently, for some – ocean – for others gardens and for others grassy fields. For me it was scenic, tropical – plant leaves as thick as the width of a finger. Lush, vibrant, unbelievable! I can come back here as often as I wish.”
A year later, the mother of another friend of mine came to give a message to her son. When she was describing heaven to me, she said:
“I’m happy up here. Lots of beauty – in which I thrive. And, lots of beautiful people.”
Francis lived a very privileged life in one of the country’s dynasty families in the 20th century and was a horrible mother. She was spoiled and so self-absorbed she didn’t even know the names of most of her grandchildren. But she loved beautiful women and men. She had exquisite taste and having met her, this ‘heaven’ made perfect sense to me.
Francis’ former husband also connected with me. William (Billy) was a world-class big game hunter, avid sportsman and deep-sea fisherman with a magnificent yacht and personal jet since the 50’s, when they were first sold. He wanted to say hello to his son, as well. This is what he said about his special environment:
“No fishing or hunting up here but I am surrounded by the most magnificent creatures God ever created – the current and the extinct. My idea of heaven, absolutely.”
Another described “big dinners and events and galas – beautiful people, wonderful food, great speakers of an elevated kind with much beauty and ceremony. Anything like that. People all around. I loved people. I loved beauty and I loved wisdom.”.
Still others characterized their personal heaven as golf – playing all the most magnificent courses in the world or the ocean – highlighting the sounds and smell, boats of all kinds. Another was in awe of his musical experiences after passing: “the depth and richness of sounds you could never phantom.”
To clarify, souls don’t physically engage in these passions but rather experience them in a more sensory way. They are almost emersed in the adventure or peace of whatever it is they truly loved.
Hearing so many stories and the richness of detail that they explain, It became obvious that the heart’s true passion from this life carries with us to the other side.
Wonderful, isn’t it?
