A Heavenly Place
Today’s daily prompt said: “Ode to a Playground…A place from your past or childhood, one that you’re fond of, is destroyed. Write it a memorial,” and today I’m asking for a bit of leniency from you as I answer the question. You see, last night, my son had a dream that was so vivid to him and it immediately brought me back to my childhood, so I wanted to share it with you.
I’ve been to Heaven. There, I’ve said it and now those of you who want to can click away…and those who want to stay, please understand that I am opening up to this playground of my past for you. No, I haven’t died before (although I’ve had a few close calls in my lifetime), but I have experienced Heaven which to me, is a playground of my past.
As a child, I was intuitive and I believe that as children, we are receptive to many energies which surround us but as we grow older, we tend to lose sight of them and stop connecting with them for those imaginings are not thought of as grown up…and yet the funny part I think is after we are grown up, we long to dream again, to open up to possibilities in our lives and we are reminded to stop and smell the roses. Do you know what I mean?
For you see, I dreamed of Heaven and that dream, although it happened more than 25 years ago, is still as vivid to me as if I had dreamt it last night. To me it was comforting to feel so at home in a place where I have not been in this lifetime except through dreams. In fact, I have dreamt of the same house many times in the last 25 years and each time, there are people in the house with whom I speak or share a smile and they can see me ~ except they are all people who have already passed in my lifetime.
Ok, have I lost any of you yet? Or are you still with me?
I guess what I am trying to say is that I believe that when we close the door to our playground of childhood, we destroy our dreams. We destroy the ability to create our lives in the way in which our higher selves function. The key is to not stop believing ~ to not stop the feeling of possibility ~ to continue to hold onto that playground of Heaven where love encompasses our every moment.
Imagine a world where we all kept that love alive in our hearts!
