Heaven is not in the clouds and there is no literal staircase, however it does symbolise a journey of inner ascension and evolution towards love and the spiritual light known as Source or God.

Heaven and Mysticism

The Stairway to Heaven

The main focus of this article is to help people understand what the concept of Heaven is through mysticism, ascension and the inner spiritual being so they can understand why it’s actually so desirable and I go into the start of how this can be attained in this lifetime whilst you are still living in body without your ascension requiring your physical death, which is actually no guarantee of being accepted.

There have been many individuals that have merged their consciousness and inner being with the heavenly realms during their lifetime including notable spiritual figures such as the Buddha and Jesus Christ. The Buddha ascended through inner body vibrational raising meditations to burn away any spiritual-impurities whilst cultivating a very peaceful and compassionate perspective on life whilst still alive and Jesus Christ completed his ascension upon his physical death through his various acts of love, teaching, sacrifice and selfless service to others.

Ascension is about raising the body’s inner vibration into lighter densities and higher frequencies where the body becomes more and more infused with spirit and loses a lot of its heaviness and physical density, this is done through mastering certain core skills and re-orientating beliefs and attitudes stored in our inner spiritual being (sometimes called the soul) and our individual consciousness and letting go of or releasing attachment to fears stored in the form of negative subtle energies called spiritual impurities in the astral body and contracted muscular groups such as the pelvis, thighs and heart wall, which are all locations that record the sources and causes of our fears or various transgressions (hostile acts or infractions against others) .

By comparison the physical third-dimensional experience for the inner spiritual being feels incredibly dense, heavy and unpleasant. We move around in our bodies made from various cells, tissues, organs and its skeletal structure and we experience pain, disease, suffering and illness as we navigate through learning karmic interactions in order to develop the quality of our inner spiritual being which forms our eternal character.

Some cultures refer to Heaven as a Paradise, which is for good reason and Christianity spirituality typically refers to it as the Kingdom of Heaven. As lust is a higher spiritual law, it’s extremely unlikely any man would have 72 virgins waiting for them, the closest I can speculate would be the leader of an enchantment temple based culture having concubine’s and these worlds still exist simply because beings still desire to experience them and television such as Game of Thrones heavily suggests what these could be like.

The spiritual principles and laws are part of a higher management of reality and govern over human realms of experience as if it were a real kingdom, although it is only a metaphor. Everybody is bound to the divine through a set of immutable spiritual laws that govern human experience that are commonly known as sins and transgressions and when we ignore these people become unwell with disease, depression and experience spiritual crisis and psychological disturbances associated with psychosis and schizophrenia.

Once a person is ascended in spirit and no longer living in a physical body the wisest of these people are free to return and walk the lower Earth in a light body through lowering their frequency. Many of the other deities I have encountered or reached out to through prayer and meditation have created light bodies to interact with me in simple ways and usually involves someone standing next to my bed and communicating with my higher consciousness whilst I’m in meditation or asleep.

A great fictional example of a light body interaction was famously depicted in one of the Star Wars movies where Obi-Wan Kenobi is seen to be struck down by Darth Vader and seemingly killed, only to ascend to a higher plane and then reach out to the young developing Jedi Luke Sky-Walker as his higher spiritual guide and mentor through a series of well timed inner-voices and his brief return in a light body on the swamp planet where Luke meets the Jedi Master, Yoda for the first time to develop his force (psychic abilities).

Star Wars was influenced heavily through Anthroposophy, which is a spiritual philosophy founded by the Christian mystic Rudolf Steiner. Many of its spiritual concepts were introduced into the Star Wars movie franchise such as the light sabre (the spine as seen as a spiritual column of light and wisdom) and the acknowledgement of the archetypal fight of good versus evil. There are a a number of similarities between Christianity and the fiction order of the Jedi.

How does ascension fit into the modern paradigm? Spiritual ascension to some people may sound like only a religious term or a complicated esoteric idea giving rise to the idea that this cannot easily be understood, known or intellectually grasped creating the false-belief that this is something that is only to be achieved by a few adept highly spiritual people and out of reach of ordinary people and thus is is never even attempted or taken as a serious reality, however, this isn’t true.

The ultimate goal of ascension is to reach the higher dimensions where the Heavenly spheres and planes exist. Once this knowledge gap has been bridged and people begin to understand our relationship to God and what Heaven is more and more people will take this seriously resulting in a resurgence of Christianity and other spiritual practises such as yoga, tantra, contemplation and meditation, which are required for the process of spiritual awakening.

Divine Symbolism

Heaven has been traditionally depicted in artwork an ethereal world of spirit existing in the clouds beyond the reach of the earth. Typically it is said that one dies and goes to Heaven, and you enter through large ornate iron gates guarded by angelic guardians. Due to so many artists being gifted with visionary depictions of Heaven and the divine planes, we have become very conditioned and used to only seeing this representation and fail to see what it is that it actually represents.

The clouds and sky in visionary artwork represent lighter spiritual frequencies of energy rather than the dense physical flesh and the gates mean that it is exclusive only to some and that there is a particular standard to be achieved in order to reach here and be accepted by others.

The angels that oversee human experience and at key points in time take part in it by engaging with humans are part symbolic and of divine origin and dwell in a space based upon grand architecture built on sacred geometry and spiritual light. Where a normal person would have irises I’ve witnessed beings with mysterious glowing white eyes which I understood to be Archangels. Guardian Angels I perceive as wearing traditional white robes and sandals and are seen either standing nearby or occasionally sweeping down from above as if guided by wires occasionally with wings and at other times far more symbolic forms of energy fitting the mood such as balls of flame and jets of light.

The truth is that the gods want to live and experience through us in order to live in their own creations because it represents something quite unique, fun including human love, drama, challenges, sexual relationships, games, food, celebrations, human creation and shared cultural experiences. We each have a personal god-self that witnesses our experience that is referred to as the self-realised “I am” presence.

The above divine construct shouldn’t be confused with Heaven and the human experience as it was always made clear that humanity itself was never intended to become as divine servants like the angels as this defeats the point and enjoyment of being human, although it is possible to become an angel if that’s how your consciousness wishes to experience or serve creation.

What is Heaven?

Heaven is a realm one ascends to in spirit through a shifting of inner vibratory frequencies within one’s inner spiritual being enabling you to reach a higher spiritual plane whilst simultaneously remaining in the physical body. One can ascend and be in Heaven whilst in a physical body and when this body dies the spirit continues on its reached plane in what we simplistically term “the after-life”. Later on your physical body begins to literally dissolve and be replaced with a light body similar to what the gods and deities use and at other times people are taken into the Heavens by angels or higher guardians by elevating your spirit through recognised acts of love as higher frequencies produce more spiritual light.

Heaven is a place of divine order, harmony, balance and justice, however not everybody has sufficiently developed themselves spiritually to be permitted to enter as to do so would destroy the concept of the Heaven. What does this really mean? The higher frequencies are closer to the Source God’s light and divine spirit so people with too much spiritual impurity cannot exist here (these impurities correspond to negative behaviours, lower or uncontrolled impulses or personality and character defects).

The people here best represent their highest self or highest personal potential, which is obtained through self-development, self-mastery, hard work and developing a refined and purified ego and self-identity that fits into the world more harmoniously enabling them to enjoy the fruits of their work. The people they live amongst here also live by and uphold similar spiritual virtue and principles like love and justice as defined by the God residing regardless of whether or not they have an outward show of spirituality such as being part of a cultural religion. Through this ascent the quality of human experience and interaction improves dramatically because there is less unnecessary sickness and disease due to karma, poor choices or ego-impurity that might otherwise threaten to stagnate, sink or destroy a higher world that would make any lifetime there undesirable to both the person and inner being.

It’s the quality of the experience offered in the Heavenly spiritual planes, which is so desirable. It allows for a better and more refined interplay between matter and spirit and because peoples egos have been purified of all their negative, toxic or lower issues and behaviours the people become far more relaxed, confident, refined and desirable to interact and be with.

Only certain people or souls may enter into Heaven, either through invitation due to notable personal achievements in the eyes of God or through frequency raising through meditation or acts of love as done as part of the ascension process. The people existing here are purified of their lower energies and energetically it’s like breathing fresh air filled with light frequencies.

In Heaven, there are many places one can go to have fun, experience joy and satisfaction. Their collective attitude is one of being proud of what they create and achieve and creation on this level appears to have the best interests of the people inhabiting the space in mind rather than that monopolisation or acquisition of material wealth and financial personal gain. Instead of producing something that is based upon the cheapest and most economically viable or affordable model to maximise shareholder profit the criteria is more about balancing and meeting the needs of culture, purpose, design, aesthetic, functionality and that which is in keeping with the location and new or innovative if it brings about an improvement.

People with too many fears aren’t usually permitted to remain at this level as it pollutes their energy frequencies, which means these have to be resolved to a reasonable standard relative to whoever the individual is. The reason being is that most people do some quite horrible things due to acting out from a place of fear and as a result, it causes harm or something unpleasant and possibly detrimental.

Philosophically I realised that humans are meant to live without fear in order to achieve our full potential else we limit ourselves and what experiences we can do and God insists we have challenges, adversity and evil adversary consciousness to fight against, resist or overcome as part of the paradigm of experience, else may things can be achieved too easily and the knowledge of evil experience is lost. Most people understand this intuitively and it’s the predominant human theme in both life, literature and entertainment. If we refuse to align with this in a balanced way or live aimlessly, then as an evolving being we risk accruing personal karma and lower dystonia worlds and timelines open up that present harsh challenges and future potentials. This was a point also echoed by the enlightened teacher Eckhart Tolle who can be seen laughing to himself during one of his audience presentations as he mentions we have relatively matched “baddies” in order to create drama, excitement and a global narrative that presents challenge in order to prevent stagnation, lack of growth and descent.

How does one qualify for entry or ascension into Heaven?

My direct experience was with re-orientating particular behaviours, attitudes, beliefs and then upholding certain spiritual principles and virtues whilst cleansing myself of negative psychic energies and spiritual impurities which represented a combination of sin and transgression (karma) and that resolving these things are the main keys to the gates of the higher spiritual planes or what we loosely know as Heaven.

It is more pleasant and quite different because the people have inwardly reached a similar level of spiritual evolution which is reflected outwardly in their choices and actions, and they can relate and interact with one another without triggering negative ego issues, reactions or people unreasonable insecurities due to their own fears, insecurities and lower energies which have long since dissolved in light frequencies. One of the main reasons for ascension meditation is that dissolves the pain body negative accumulated energy field and enables you to identify and process other bad energies such as stagnant pools of stuck emotional energy and demons represent the worst of them all.

I spent what felt like a couple of weeks in a Heavenly plane with a Christian God. I was eventually turned away referred to as “falling” by someone due to my on-going conflict with my father after I discovered all the karma he gave me and on this new ascended plane I equally disliked the new soul occupying my father’s physical form. I then got caught in many spiritual traps of agreement and found myself wandering between spiritual realms and interacting with different god-heads, which allowed me to understand quite a lot about the nature of spiritual reality as it connects the different human experiences together.

So what is in Heaven? There are still bars, shopping centres, attractions and places where people meet up, restaurants to eat in, people still drink alcohol, visit the beach on holiday, explore green landscapes and places with natural flowing water. The people love one another more relative to their relationship to one another in terms of platonic relations, romance and marriage. People still get drunk on alcohol, dance, have sex, experience joy and pleasure and use other intoxicants in sensible amounts if in keeping with their character. However, people don’t binge drink to excess or degrade themselves in public through vomiting, vulgar language or behaviour, incessant swearing or start unjustified fights. They don’t spread corrupted attitudes, toxic-behaviours or commit offences against the divine laws and thus all media, entertainment and cultural content become far more purified but are still as rich, full and diverse as ever without deliberately tempting in a toxic way or seeking to corrupt heavenly virtues and values. There is still adversarial competition based upon good and evil as this is what creates the drama, tension, unscripted challenge and adversity necessary for the human experience to move forward without stagnation or loss of challenge.

Individuals have mostly mastered the right use of their emotions, attitude and learned to control or do away with their egoic and egoistical reactions, responses and behaviours to particularly unfavourable situations and scenarios. People are far more positive and solutions orientated and they don’t let minor things psychically bother them so much, as a result they are able to establish greater civilisations with the capacity to flourish and survive without imploding through vice, lust, greed and inner corruption which was the case with the demise of the Roman Empire.

The people are much happier, there is significantly less stress and offence caused. If a conflict occurs, it is usually resolved more rapidly and fairly or conflict becomes justified rather than a default response. Resolution of accidental mistakes comes through genuine and sincere apology and forgiveness that can be offered without hostility rather than stubbornness. In many instances, these types of errors don’t happen anymore because people have higher knowledge, higher consciousness and personal self-awareness to balance their character and offerings. Most of the people are far more psychically developed and use this extra layer of communication to facilitate a more seamless and integrated human experience, mostly I observed seeing more clear pictures in my mind’s eye, occasionally picture overlays on my physical vision and often a lot more still or silent inner voices and stronger intuitive thoughts.

Spiritual Evolution

The ascension modal of spiritual-evolution enables both the human, soul and inner spiritual being to fit into a pattern of expected standards, expectations and behaviours relative to their own character, personality, archetype and life goals. There is still room for creative expression, which is the whole point of being a co-creative being with God and all the best ideas and creations get noted, acknowledged and possibly implemented in some way.

When higher spiritual principles are acknowledged and followed on the Earth by everyone we would collectively achieve what many might philosophically describe as Heaven on Earth, which appears to be one of the goals. However, in the meantime, the physical lower Earth is used for the purposes of soul purification, ego development, healing, learning core lessons whilst fighting amongst adversarial and evil consciousness in order to obtain the knowledge and experience of evil in order to refine the quality and skills of the higher spheres. In order to create something perfect one must engage against dark consciousness as adversity and challenge is a prerequisite else all would be too easy and taken for granted.

So in conclusion, the Kingdom of Heaven actually represents a vast expanse of different experiences based upon various different Earth peoples and cultures from both our world and others. There are many different planes, realms, worlds and higher spheres suitable for individuals depending on who they currently are, who they are choosing to become. The infamous Garden of Eden is just one place where couples can become drunk on love, beauty, indulge the human senses and experience the fruits of nature.

One reaches Heaven through right-attitude, living by moral principle, upholding virtues, respecting and understanding karma, doing hard work, enjoying life fully, healing the body of karma and disease and learning from past mistakes in order to come into alignment with and engage with the ascension process which is something I will cover more in future articles. I believe once everybody realises this and spiritual existence has been proven beyond reasonable doubt through both proofs of the interplay of spirit and matter and understanding the real causes of disease that many more will seek out God, heaven and divine spirit through their respected cultural paths as not everyone wants to become a Christian, however it does over the best method for clearing core lessons in the beginning.

The ascended planes and spiritual Heaven’s are not about humanity living on white clouds and donning white robes and sandals, this is what Guardian Angel’s do and their role is usually quite simple. The majority of people in western culture have mistaken the symbols contained in their artworks for the lived reality experience of an after-life.

Once everyone understands the distinctions between Heaven and the lower dimensions and the requirements of oversight for a planetary experience you can begin to quite logically understand why God functioning through witnessing consciousness is a necessary requirement unless the human being is to live in abject suffering, ruin and existential misery.
