Dear Bonnie: Do you believe in heaven? And if so, do you think there is also a “bad place”? I often wonder if Earth is a bad place, and if we are good, we go to heaven. Terrible things seem to happen here 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 that’s easy for me to say since I work with spirit and heaven every day, and as a medium who does this work for healing purposes, I see a lot of hurt in the world and certain circumstances that happen that there are no answers for. 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 become aware of 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 were nothing less than loving. One night, I sat straight up in bed with amazement as they let me hear the music that is being 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 others will know for certain that heaven does exist.

I sometimes now wake to see and listen to 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 schoolroom, 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, allowing 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.
