Heaven Is In Your Heart. My Experience With God.

Thursday, January 5, 2012


This should be a short hub because the most important thing I have to say is that Heaven is real. I know for a fact that Heaven is real because I think I may have been there.

Some people will think I am silly for having said that, but something brought me there one morning when my mother was gone in my arms. She was gone as gone could be. The only thing I could hope for was a miracle, and to be absolutely honest I have never been a perfect person . I have done some things wrong in my life, but I have always more, or less sort of believed in God.

My mother was absolutely one hundred percent gone. While she was gone I wondered how in the heck we would get out of this mess. According to history there are not too many folks that come back from being gone, so I figured I needed to do some heavy duty pleading to God for help. And with all my heart, and soul I asked God to help me. I said, " Dear God Please Help Me ! "

I thought I was brave. I have seen a lot of gone folks in my life. My heart was always sad for them. I saw two young people destroyed instantly from a car accident. A teen also stopped breathing in my arms. He was very young. He reminded me of a dying angel. I tried CPR, but it failed. He was torn up too much . I felt like holding him very close to my heart, and I just wanted to just cry forever for a young man I never ever knew in my life . I removed my police shirt , folded it , and placed it under his head. My silver badge shinned bright beside his face. I thought there was a chance for life for him. The injuries were too awful. His breathing stopped. There was nothing I could do to bring him back, and I can tell you for a fact that I was pretty good at using CPR .

Indeed I thought I was seasoned as having experienced everything until my mother fell limp, and stopped breathing in her chair.

There is nothing kind about being gone . I held a dog that I loved in my arms as I carried him to his grave.

I sincerely seek ed God for my mother, and I even though I did not think he would actually show up.

Now I know in my heart that God will arrive for anyone if he is asked for help. I say he, but maybe God is a she. Maybe God is neither a he, or a she, but just a supernatural intity. I do not know what God looks like, but I definitely know when God is present, and I can say this with a feeling of belief. God is always around you, and is part of the love in your heart.

My mother came back to life, after being gone. Most people would say it was the CPR, but I know it was more of God's doing than mine. Do you know that I knew she would breathe again ! I knew when she would come back.

She lived a few months more, and she was gone for sure . The thing about it was that I knew how long she would live , and when God would come for her for sure.

Heaven is a place of weightlessness. There is great ease in being there. I knew I was just a visitor. I was not meant to remain there. I was only there for instructions. God wanted me to know certain things, and my mind was nothing more than a place for God to place the instructions . God gave me a certain amount of knowledge concerning the future of my mother. I knew she would only live about six more weeks, and that is how much longer she lived.

I could not stop trying to save my mother. All my life I was conditioned to fight for life.

I was a trained life saver. Everything in my entire life was about fighting for life. There was no way I could change myself from being any other way.

Heaven for me was a place of learning that God is very wise, and does certain things for reasons that only God would understand. I was only and instrument to be aware of God's intentions.

Heaven is about love, and God is about doing everything right according to what God wants. I don't know the answers to anything. I know however that there is another place that is not a physical world. I truly believe I was in a non physical world for a short period of time.

My body never left the floor near my mother. I never stopped moving, or administering the CPR. Whatever I am in essence was drawn into a non physical place that I believed was either Heaven, or a place of paradise because there was and atmosphere of love that seemed to be the essence of the place. The place was love. It was all love. Everything about my encounter with God was a very gentle, and kind one. There was no measure of time. I could have been there five minutes, or one one thousandth of a second.

It was real, and I know I was not out of my mind, or traumatized. I was of sound mind in my opinion. Am I a special person ? I don't think so. Am I the only person in the world that is good enough to be brought to a place like Heaven ? I don't think so.

I truly believe with all my heart that God is always around us all the time. Do I believe God would give us what we all desire ? No. I believe God gives us only what God thinks we should have.


God Bless Everyone

Dear stars, you have a way with words, straightforward and honest and you touch hearts because you are a precious heart. This kind of experience is spiritual and spiritual is the only thing that is real. It's a lot more real than the physical because it is what God is...spirit. God created us to have a connection with Him through the spirit. A divine Father who loves us all so much. And He does give us always what we need,not always what we want.

And a world out of touch needs correction and will get it soon I'm afraid. Yet it comes so people can really and truly get to know their Father. And learn of Him and His ways with Satan out of the picture.

Wonderful times are ahead! The promises of God are real and end-time prophecies are being fulfilled daily!

It is comforting to read of the experience you had with you encounter with God. I know He is present all of the time too but when we are in certain circumstances I think we can feel His presence much more acutely. Bless you today and every day, you are a good man, Lee

Dear skye2day : When I was drawn to the place I believe was Heaven,or a paradise, I knew immediately that God would have the power to create a world, or even a Universe. I never believed God was so wonderful until I experienced the love in God's heart. It is enough to bring any man to his knees in tears, or in awe of amazement. It is a wonderful feeling like wearing a blanket of love by a thousand mothers, and fathers, and brothers, and sisters. That one experience gave me great hope. God Bless You Dear Heart. God loves you very much.

Dear Mr.s Deborah : In two ways my experience reminded me of the film " Ghost ," starring Patrick Swazie.

The place where I experienced what I feel occurred seemed to be made of love.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, and God Bless You Precious heart.

Stars, This is quite interesting! There are some spiritual things that we just know and are difficult to explain… I do not think this to be at all silly! This is BEAUTIFUL! I also appreciate and respect the fact that you give God the credit for bringing your Mom back. He extended her time on this side of heaven… May this always give you PEACE that He answered your request! GOD is so real! Yes GOD is LOVE! It is a Blessing to know that you CAN TRUST GOD! I think that you are precious!

This is profound what you say here:” Heaven for me was a place of learning that God is very wise, and does certain things for reasons that only God would understand. I was only and instrument to be aware of God's intentions.” I think that it is an honor to be used as an instrument of the Lord. I also believe that there are many things that our little finite minds just can’t understand… Yes, as you say I too believe that God is always around us.” God is Omnipresent! This is very thought provoking! Much to ponder here…

Thank you for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

Dear Mr.s DeBorrah : Time flys. I think my mom passed many years ago, but those moments with God still seem like minutes ago. My mother had no sign of life until God touched her. Life is a wonderful thing. I knew entirely that it was God's touch that brought her back. You are so right dear heart. God loves us very much. I know he loves you very much because you have a heart of compassion, and love , and your alway reaching out to help so many people. Thank you so much dear heart for your wonderful visit. God Bless You, and your precious loved one.

your story is beautiful and somewhat tugs at my heart. I know the feeling of losing a mother and how I would do anything to have her here. But I most happy that now you realize that there is a God and that his love is strong beyond measure. Now you know you will be with your mother again someday. There have been many who have had the experience of going to heaven and they all say it was the most loving and compforting place to be..God bless you and continue your writing it is very beautiful and heartfelt.

Dear Tracy : Thank you so much for comming by. You are so sincere in your feelings for our Lord. I am glad you believe me. It is a place that is total white, wherever I was. I experienced the love I knew when I was a child. I could not see, or hear God, but the knowledge concerning my mother simply just came into my mind. God Bless You precious heart.
