Heaven is for Real
It’s funny how little bits of truth start to add up to a greater picture of how things work. I’ve been posting real life stories of near death experiences (NDEs) over that past few days, and there is a constant theme of family love, and a surprising twist: how music plays a large part in life after death. This is Colton Burpo’s version of an NDE.
“Hey, Colton, if we turn here, we can go back to the hospital,” I said. “Do you wanna go back to the hospital?”
Our preschooler giggled in the dark. “No, Daddy, don’t send me! Send Cassie . . . Cassie can go to the hospital!”
Sitting next to him, his sister laughed. “Nuh-uh! I don’t wanna go either!”
In the passenger seat, Sonja turned so that she could see our son, whose car seat was parked behind mine. I pictured his blond crew cut and his sky-blue eyes shining in the dark. “Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said.
“Yes, Mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”
Inside the Expedition, time froze. Sonja and I looked at each other, passing a silent message: Did he just say what I think he said?

Intriguing, for sure.
Lots of people have expressed skepticism that this could have ever taken place, since he sat of Jesus’ lap, saw Mary praying at an altar, and met his slightly older sister who had died before she was born. So, I am going to look at his birth chart, and I’m timing his birth so that his ‘event’ would be just two months before his 4th birthday (Pluto).
His Birth Chart
Okay. There are plenty of inconjuncts, three of which are dependent on the timing of his birth. But the two that don’t depend on the timing being correct are Saturn and Venus pointing a Yod (Finger of God) at Pluto. That makes this ‘real’ for me.
Again, because of his innocence at the time, I am not going to delineate that configuration, but the astrologers reading this post will probably come to their own conclusions. Just note that Venus represents family love (from his sister on the other side). Saturn represents his father.
This is what I knew as a child, too.
