I am often asked: "Is there a Hell?" My answer to this is always: "No, there is not a Hell, but the Earth plane is Hell." This is because for many souls, the Earth plane and its purpose - that of learning lessons and moving out of old energy - is a very hard place to be in. On top of that, they have to do battle with "Devil or Satan" - which is their Self. The Self plays the role of creating fear, which for many, stops them from moving forward and learning what they need to do, or from letting go of old energy.
Each soul on the Earth plane is in their own hologram, and each is living their own plan which they created before birth. To some the Earth plane is a place of trial and tribulation, and they do not want to be in that place. For others, the Earth plane is a place of beauty and amazement. Hence, it depends on the soul's level of development. As one battles the Self, one moves up in vibration until there comes a time of awareness of the Higher Self, and this energy can then assist in controlling the Self and bringing in the higher energies.
Over the Earth years, it has been the church and religious authorities which have been responsible for the amount of fear in the world. Their teaching, by using biblical quotations, to "fear" God, to suppress emotions and to control their members' thinking and ideas, has not helped the Earth plane in any way. When one has fear, one cannot move forward. God is love; it is in effect the Higher Self, and all souls are a part of this energy. One just has to find this energy. While one is in the Self, in fear, and controlled by other emotions such as doubt, insecurity and lack of confidence, it is very difficult indeed to be in touch with the Higher Self. Only when one moves out of this by facing fear, can one become aware of the Higher Self, and merge with this energy. Often the fear people experience is not from this incarnation, but old energy stored in the soul memory. When this is cleared and the soul has been able to move on, the most wonderful contact with the Higher Self can begin to take place.
What fear do you have, what is stopping you from moving on? I stated earlier that each soul is in its own hologram and its own learning space. What if you were the only person on this Earth plane who was "real" and everyone else was a figment of your imagination? Think about that, for it could be true. All those who come into your space are there to teach you, to mirror for you something you do not want to see within yourself. YOU choose whether you look into the mirror or not. You choose whether the hologram is heaven or hell!! Many souls live in a constant hell because of their fear, and they cannot move on. Then when they leave the Earth plane and can "see" what they have done, and how their fear stopped them from moving on, they are mortified.
It is not easy facing fear, facing one's dark side, but when one moves towards the light, peace within one self becomes more a way of life, and the "battle" with the Self, becomes less and less. Yes, there is a heaven, and yes, there is a choice. One does not have to leave the Earth plane and die to experience heaven. The choices you make create the reality you live. It is as simple as that.
