I saw a vision of heaven. There was a sign at the entrance, “No suffering here.” There were little kids blowing bubbles, and the city was an enchanted castle reminiscent of a Disney set. Laughter and play were everywhere. I saw unicorns, sea horses, Pegasus, elephants, mermaids, and so many animals. Apparently, heaven is filled with animals! Heaven is not a physical place. Heaven is an individualized experience. It is a state of mind we each carry within ourselves. We can tune into it at any time. Heaven is a reminder that spirituality is not all about suffering. Suffering is not always spiritual. Sometimes the more spiritual thing to do is to transition suffering into pleasure. Suffering will show up sooner or later; we need not seek it out. Play, pleasure, and divine ecstasy are a part of being human. We need them to be alive and vibrant in our world. Return to pleasure, and the gates of heaven may open up to you.
If you would like to work with me to transform your trauma into the place of your power and fulfill your potential, schedule a Free Transform Trauma into Power Session. In this session, my intention is to help you gain clarity and support, learn a few powerful suggestions, and see whether one of my Coaching Programs is a good fit for you.
Do you feel psychologically traumatized by religion, or isolated and disempowered by trauma and limiting beliefs in your life? I’m Andrew Jasko, Master of Divinity (M.Div.), M.A., Counseling Psychology in progress, and I work to help you transform your trauma into the place of your power and connect to a healthy, authentic spirituality that works for you (whether that’s as a spiritual, atheist, religious, transitioning, or agnostic identifying person). I was born into a minister’s family and became a preacher and missionary to India, after studying theology at Wheaton College and Princeton Seminary. As a Christian, my relationship with God was my passion, but unhealthy religious teachings caused me an anxiety disorder, sexual repression, and spiritual disillusionment. I felt alone, traumatized, and abandoned by the divine. After an agonizing crisis of faith, I rejected religion and spirituality. Then, I had an unexpected spiritual awakening through mystical and spiritual practices like meditation, psychedelics, and connecting my heart’s desires and intuition through my Divine Mindfulness practice. My passion is to help you in your spiritual or life transition to heal and connect with your authentic spiritual wholeness.
