Online Reference For Body, Mind & Spirit

Term: Heaven

DEFINITIONs:
1.  The name used to describe a place—often considered to be outside normal time and space—where God or the gods live. Also said to be the home of various angels when they are not directly helping out in the physical universe. In some religions, heaven is also the place where the spirits or souls of people (and in some beliefs, animals) go after death. Some religions limit this to the souls of people who are either “good” or have followed certain guidelines of the religion.

Originally, the word referred to the sky and areas above the atmosphere where “heavenly bodies” and “heavenly phenomena” appeared. This eventually evolved to the current meaning.

2.  The “higher heaven” is the Causal Plane and the “lower heaven” is the Mental Plane. Both provide blissful states to the soul between incarnations during which past life experiences are transformed into wisdom. It’s a time when creativity becomes perfected reality for the soul.
