When we think of heaven and the hereafter, we think of the moment when we die. Yet the Great Beyond is so much more. Heaven is the foundation to your spiritual unfoldment here in physical life. It is the master key to the spiritual mysteries.

Heaven and Your Spiritual Evolution inspires you to make your soul's growth an even stronger priority in your life. Based on fifty years of clairvoyant experience, Martin and Moraitis take you on an extraordinary journey through the many dimensions that exist in the world of spirit. They offer a clear picture of how spiritual growth is the process of evolving through the many inner realms of life, what the road to heaven looks like, and how the destiny of every soul is to reach the spiritual pinnacle. Learn effective meditations with Divine Light to increase your connection to the heaven worlds, unlock your creative potential, and accelerate your spiritual unfoldment. Complete with full-color illustrations by fine artist Jonathan Wilshire, the breadth and splendor of the spiritual worlds come vividly alive in this life-changing book.

• The process of evolving to the heaven worlds and to your ultimate destination.
• What the various spiritual realms are like including the astral, mental, causal, and etheric as well as the heavenly dimensions.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1 – You Don't Go to Heaven, You Grow to Heaven

“The life so short, the craft so long to learn.” – Chaucer

There is a home, an everlasting house, where the tributaries of life gather together. It is a place where life flows in its fullness, where love, peace and joy reign supreme and justice prevails; where you are creative, strong, healthy, vibrant, and alive as can be. No matter where you are, how far you travel, this home is there for you. When you feel lost, sad, desperate or forgotten, the everlasting house is there to warm the heart and stir the soul. Shadows of the past fade in this eternal place. You are where and who you are meant to be.

We call this blessed place heaven. Many of us build our life on the principle there is a great beyond and that our actions on earth determine what kind of life we have in the hereafter. Heaven gives us purpose. It reaffirms that our actions have meaning, and life is not random or happenstance. Of course, there are those who say heaven is but human fallacy, a superstition we sustain to deal with the difficulties and ambiguities of this world. At best, we make our own heaven or hell by the way we live our life. And then there are others who feel heaven is a question that can only be answered when we die.

No book can prove (or disprove!) heaven exists. That is something every person must come to terms with, in their own way. What I can share with you is what metaphysics teaches on this timeless topic and what my own clairvoyant experiences over the course of a lifetime have taught. As these pages illustrate, not only is heaven real, it's the key to attaining all the potential that is in you as a human soul. Heaven is not just a place; it's a state of consciousness. To be part of heaven and the consciousness that heaven embodies, you must unfold your spiritual potential.

Metaphysics teaches you don't go to heaven just because you have been a good person; you grow to heaven through the gradual, majestic process of spiritual evolution. To become a citizen of heaven, you must first unfold all that you are capable of becoming. You learn to express every goodness, every talent, every character strength and all your spiritual power. Like grades in school, as you unfold who and what you really are as a soul, step-by-step, you grow spiritually. As you experience life in its great variety, the soul gathers up wisdom which helps to unfold its power and potential. Mystics call this spiritual growth an ascent—
