On this book Chad shares his teachings on meditation, transcending the illusion of expectations and reality, letting go of the ego and attachments, synchronicities, Akashic records and many other spiritual development topics. He shares his own personal spiritual awakening journey and writes about what one can expect while learning how to navigate and grow their spirituality.

"This world, this “Reality”, for many of us has lost its state of Flux. We have been living in a Ice age of beliefs, “facts, and “knowledge”.
“Heaven in the Now” shifts the poles of “Reality”. It is a call to remember that we are not just the Iceberg but also the Ocean...
I suggest that You lose yourself in the waves of Wisdom and streams of consciousness in “Heaven in the Now”. This is the type of book that asks of us presence as we read it and humility as we digest it.
If all humanity’s “holy books” made us believe in God a little less they would be more like this book... Chad McKinney brilliantly uses Humor and Wisdom to remind us that Heaven, which is a state of being, is when we remember to Feel and Appreciate the GoOD in ourself...."
A great read!
"The author takes you on a personal journey of the evolution of his feelings towards a higher power. This is a thought provoking book that forces you take a closer look at the decisions you are making in your own life. It also provides actionable ideas on how to live happier and healthier. A great read! I highly recommend!"
A must read!!!!!
"Well written. Author gives unique insight and great advice. Easy to follow along and provides references and actionable items. Highly recommend for those looking for our own divinity"
Read my review!
"Let me say, I really enjoyed this book and I was totally engaged cover to cover.
What I wasn't expecting was to be so...mmm...convicted, and a little frustrated. I was forced to look within myself and ask questions I honestly was ok not dealing with. Like, Do I love myself, and, what does that even mean?
I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book.
Chad's story is incredible.
Even though this book pissed me off a little, the writing has truth and power, and given a chance, has the ability to help grow and transform people.
Thank you for sharing this with the world!
Everyone should read it at least once. I have the paperback and just purchased on Audible copy so I can listen on my commute."
It’s here right in front you
"Heaven in the now" a true treasure, in this chaotic 21st century, where the superficial is appreciated more than life itself, where we spend our time thinking about what already was and what doesn’t yet exist, truly wonderful! Thank you for your dedication, your knowledge, for sharing your life story and for so much love. Hopefully everyone can read it and hopefully everyone can have a Chad in their lives."
