About Heaven & Healing Podcast
Welcome to Heaven & Healing Podcast. Formerly known as Moon and Back Podcast, this was once a place of astrology, yoga, new age spirituality and self-healing. In October 2021, I opened my heart to Jesus Christ and accepted Him as my Lord and Savior later that year. By December, I was convicted by the Holy Spirit to rebrand my podcast and denounce new age spirituality as I officially declared my identity in Christianity. On February 22, 2022, Heaven & Healing was officially born. On Heaven & Healing, I share testimonies from others who have been saved by Christ - from other former new agers, to former witches, former addicts, former atheists and so much more. I also bring on Biblical scholars to share knowledge of the history, context, and meaning of Scripture. Additionally discussed are experiences from my own life, political commentary and cultural discourse as it all relates to God and His Word. For any believer or non-believer, this podcast is for you, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Only a New Age teacher would say something like “suicide ideation is a symptom of spiritual awakening.” We hear stuff like this all the time within this dangerous, psuedospiritual community: “people mistake wanting to die with an ego death,” “we carry karmic loads from previous lifetimes that we must unpack in this life to usher soul growth,” “your suffering is teaching you how to expand” and other nonsensical expressions that sound like a prophetic answer to the untrained, vulnerable, desperate ear. Of course, none of it is true. It’s all a deception, authored by the enemy and designed to lure you further into the trap of satanism gift-wrapped as “self-healing.” This two-part episode is a response to popular New Age teacher Christina Lopes’ recent YouTube video where she ‘explains’ the spiritual ramifications of suicide ideation, presenting pantheistic and Buddhist concepts as justifications to one’s suffering. Christina says there is no eternal punishment for suicide (or anything), that our soul comes back over and over to achieve eternity (?), that someone who wants to die is simply having an ego death, that the planet is a conscious being going through “her” own soul expansion which affects our own, and that we should seek out shamans for support. In part-one, I address her reasoning as to WHAT suicide ideation is and why it’s utter hogwash by challenging the inconsistencies and pitfalls of her New Age frame with a solid, coherent biblical frame. In the part-two members-exclusive, I tackle her illogical, manipulative perspective as to WHY suicide ideation is on the rise and the SOLUTIONS she offers in the face of that — and bring it all back as to why JESUS is the only Way, Truth and Life despite how many self-proclaimed spiritual gurus claim otherwise. You can find part two ONLY on www.heavenandhealing.com
The punch-line with this episode is that it’s actually not at all about why we should “live and let live,” but actually quite the opposite. Episode 19 of Heaven & Healing Podcast is about why Christians must be bold in standing against “live and let live” and not be gaslit by New Agers, secularists or the woke mob by being told we ‘need’ to be respectful of others and ‘stop trying to force’ our beliefs on them; this episode is an encouragement to believers to be bold in their faith and unashamed in proclaiming the gospel of Christ as THEE universal, objective truth. As a Christian: Are you constantly worrying about what friends, family, loved ones, acquaintances will think about you for speaking on Christianity? Do you feel backed into a corner when you try to expose spiritual darkness and are met with angry responses that demand you be more kind to others? Do you sometimes think that it’s innocuous enough if others’ just live how they want/love how they want/practice what they want so long as they are happy and seemingly harmless? In this discussion, I reflect on my personal experience with persecution and use biblical context to explain why it’s to be expected and why we can delight in it when it happens. I talk about the inconsistencies of logic that New Age spiritualists & secularists use when it comes to their ideologies, why relative truth cannot exist, human rights that we think we’re entitled to vs. Creator right’s that God Almighty IS entitled to, how it IS actually loving to tell the truth, satanism of self-idolatry disguised as compassion and why, when you unpack the beliefs against opposing worldview, Christianity is indeed solid as a rock. I will not be in the business of partnering with darkness for the sake of being ‘tolerant, accepting and nonjudgmental;’ I will continue to speak out on the falsity of other religions/beliefs in affirming that Jesus is the True Way, and I pray the same confidence in faith for you. Don’t let them make you feel crazy. Don’t let them beat you down with inclusivity. Don’t go out of your way to insult someone — but don’t feel guilty if you insult someone for being honest. Live and let live doesn’t save anyone. +DONATE www.donorbox.org/heaven-healing-podcast-ministry+VENMO @angelamarieucci +INSTAGRAM @angelamarieucci
Welcome back to Heaven & Healing Podcast — the first episode of 2023! This is my special “One Year with Jesus” anniversary episode where I share the synopsis of my testimony for anyone who hasn’t heard it before and from there reflect on what my first full year walking with the Lord has been like. The episode starts with the background context of where I’m coming from: New Age spirituality, obsessed with ‘self-healing’ modalities such as tarot, astrology, yoga, reiki, crystal healing and more. I discuss how even though I spent nearly a decade entrenched in those things, there was never true, substantial healing — only bouts of relief that would eventually perpetuate more patterns of bad behavior, anxiety and chronic depression. I was 27 years old, curled up on my kitchen floor ready to end my life when I called out to Jesus Christ for the first time in September 2021. By late December 2021, after straddling the fence of “New Age Christianity” for several months, I finally laid my life before the Lord’s feet in conviction of the Holy Spirit and, by the grace of God, surrendered faith to Jesus Christ entirely. Christ healed my relationship anxiety, my ongoing depression, my lustful tendencies and my bondage to demonic deception of NA. A year later, I continue to be sanctified by God’s peace that surpasses all understanding. In this episode, I share what it was like with my NA circle after I came to know Jesus, how my mom’s salvation followed my own, give a look into my relationship with my fiancé before and after his experience finally coming-to-Christ, reflect on the difference in how I handle struggles before I knew Jesus vs. now, share some things I am accused of with maintaining my platform, praise God for the opportunities He has given me to glorify Himself, discuss the way God has both humbled my theology and allowed me to embrace my freedom in Christ post-NA where I was afraid of demonic deception. There’s a special message for unbelievers at the end that I pray God will use to reach ears to listen. Finally, I conclude with an important announcement regarding future exclusive content.

The long awaited Heaven & Healing episode 17: The Truth About Yoga is finally here! First and foremost, thank you so much for your patience with me as my transition moving from Pennsylvania to Tennessee has presented me with more challenges than anticipated, particularly with the set up of my new studio. I want to preface this by saying THANK YOU for your donations. Thanks to you, the set up you see here - from desk, to chair, to lighting to background props was made possible due to your generosity. That being said, there is still much work to be done with this space. You can clearly hear the echo in this episode (which made me doubt if I should even post it at this time) and although I purchased and installed many soundproof panels for the walls, they all literally fell off within the first hour — hence, echo. I apologize for that. I am working on it. If you would like to sow into my mission of exposing deceptions of New Age spirituality and the secular world, and aid me plant seeds for the Kingdom in sharing gospel and the truth of Christ with high quality production that will really help get Heaven & Healing into more people’s eyes and ears, then please consider a financial contribution to this ministry here: https://donorbox.org/heaven-healing-podcast-ministry (link in bio) or my Venmo $angelamarieucci In this conversation, I dive deep into the history, definitive context, and pagan-dominant roots of yoga. The research I share with you in this episode really goes to show how the yoga practice is intrinsically curated for the purposes of both self-salvation and worship of Hindu gods, and therefore cannot be seen as separate from these objective truths regardless of the yogi’s subjective intent to practice. Of all New Age/mindfulness/occultist (whatever you want to call it) practices, yoga is the one thing that I get the most push back from from Christians and non-Christians alike, claiming that yoga is totally experiential and simply innocuous stretching — so this episode is to educate Christians especially on this topic, so that moving forward, an informed decision can be made within the context of the yoga practice: does it truly bring glory to God to abide in a pagan vine that can never produce holy fruit? I discuss the history, definitions, design and spiritual context surrounding the yoga practice, explaining why/how it is a physical divination practice and supplement Scripture as the testament to that truth, breakdown the difference between yoga and stretching, and present some alternative modalities of exercise.

In this episode of Heaven & Healing Podcast, I speak with an ex-psychic medium, Jenn Nizza Hofacker. Jenn had a very successful career in psychic mediumship before crying out to Jesus Christ in a moment of desperation. After that moment, everything changed for her — she went to church, felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit and are home to read what the Bible says about psychic mediumship only to find that it is an abominable sin worthy of death in the sight of the Lord and that there is absolutely nothing in Scripture to support connection or communion with deceased loved ones. Jenn has since dedicated her life’s work to Christ and the integrity of Scripture, exposing the demonic deception of psychic mediumship and other occultist practices. She has published two books, From Psychic to Saved & Out of the New Age and Into the Truth and has an online ministry where she shares the very real dangers of psychic consultation. In this conversation, Jenn shares her testimony of how she came to know Christ and from there we unpack the truth about psychic mediums — how it is not our departed friends and family they receive their esoteric knowledge from, but rather demons in disguise. We talk about how the devil is a liar, how he and his demonic minions want to destroy us, and how cunningly crafty they are at posing as grandma or uncle Joe or your childhood friend when you visit a psychic medium, deceiving both you AND psychic with the grave consequence of leading you away from Jesus, God and the Holy Bible — thus, guiding you toward eternal condemnation.

In this episode, I interview Samuel Perez, “a former gay stripper turned whole hearted follower of Jesus. After being involved In the homosexual lifestyle and experiencing severe depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts; Samuel turned to God. With open and extended arms, God's saving and transformational grace allowed for a complete change in his identity and purpose. Samuel's mission is to preach his testimony and experiences of his life in the LGBTQ community, to believers and non-believers. Hoping to inspire others that the love of God is transformational and correcting. His vision includes educating the church on those who struggle with same-sex attraction, and proper biblical interpretation and helping those whom struggle with SSA find comfort and encouragement towards an all encompassing and consuming love in Jesus Christ.” (Excerpt from Samuel’s website) I ask some of the questions all of us have as believers (and even as non-believers) when it comes to homosexuality as it relates to Scripture, and Samuel does an excellent job breaking down some heretical issues within the church surrounding this culturally inflamed topic, and offers approachable solutions to how we, as the body of Christ, can share God’s Word in truth and love with members of the LGBTQ community. While Scripture teaches that homosexual acts are sinful, these Bible verses aren't about condemning homosexuals, gays, lesbians, or transgender people. Rather, they are God's loving warning and offering of grace for those who have strayed from His will for sex. We live in a fallen world with a fallen nature, but in Christ, we can be new creations.

In this episode, I talk about how when New Agers specifically begin our walk with Christ, we tend to approach the world with kid-gloves because we have PTSD from the horrific deception we were spellbound by in NA and are terrified of the devil tricking us again, especially because we have finally received the true fulfillment we had been in a futile search for before surrendering to Jesus. Because of that, we tend to over-credit Satan and give him way too much clout that he does not deserve. As believers in Christ — as children of God — we should not overestimate the devil in this way. By the same token, I discuss how Scripture says that Satan does indeed blind the minds of unbelievers. Therefore, while believers should not underestimate the devil… un-believers should certainly not underestimate him. Un-believers need to be made consciously aware of Satan’s wickedness, snares, deceit and malignancy. More importantly, they need to be made aware of the Good News — Jesus loves them unconditionally and can redeem them from the Evil ONe. Additionally, I speak on how when we constantly shift the blame for all haphazards, wrongdoings and negativity in life, we lack taking responsibility for our own infallible nature. The Bible tells us that our fleshly desires wage war against our soul and that the wages of sin are death. This speaks volumes to the powerful nature of sin and temptation. More often than not, it’s not the devil messing us up — it’s us submitting to the flesh. While Satan certainly cheers on your destructions, he is not always the inherent cause of them. The punchline of this episode is this: GOD IS SOVEREIGN OVER SATAN. The devil DOES NOT have unlimited power as God does. He cannot do anything outside of the boundaries God has set in place for him; he cannot wreak havoc on anything without God’s providence. Ultimately, Satan is God's subordinate, not His opposite equal.

In episode 13 of Heaven & Healing Podcast “Neutrality is a Myth” I have a great talk with my dear brothers in Christ, Jeremiah Andrews and Andrew Soncrant — the brilliant minds behind the The Cultish Show @thecultishshow ! Most of the time Jeremiah and Andrew are are hosting a conversation — this time, they are being hosted, and it will definitely make you wish they were more often! Hearing these two speak never fails to blow my mind. Praise God for how He is using Jeremiah and Andrew as the true hands and feet of Christ. We start this conversation off by sharing both Jeremiah and Andrew’s individual testimonies of how they each came to know Jesus, and then dive into the birth-story of their podcast Cultish. From there, we get into a lengthy discussion all about how neutrality is a myth, covering different apologetic subjects all ultimately within the realm of relativism. We talk abut agnostics, new age-ism, secularism, and other religions — how these varied worldviews, as the antithesis of Christianity, are all either entirely self-refuting in their beliefs/claims or simply borrow from the Christian worldview to make their case. For Christians, this is a helpful episode to take note of those questions/ideologies that the unbelievers, apostates, spiritualists or “indifferent” people in your life may challenge you with regarding your faith. FOR those unbelievers, apostates, spiritualists and “indifferent” folk, this would be a great episode for you to listen to with a willingness to be wrong and to learn new things. The truth is, everyone looks at life from a religious bias, in terms of what or who has the ultimate authority (God, man, reason, nature, etc). Even atheists are not neutral because their policy is determined on the presupposition that there is no God. There IS no neutrality in anything. Especially with Christ.

In episode 12 of Heaven & Healing Podcast, I have a conversation with my new friend in Christ Matt Reynolds. Matt is a trans man born a biological female who transitioned as a young adult, and came to know Jesus in a moment of desperation when calling on the Lord’s help, after realizing how the whole of the LGBTQ movement itself (not necessarily the whole community) is quite evidently on a mission to indoctrinate the youth. This episode is not about transgenderism as a sin — though it is a sin that nevertheless can be washed clean by the blood of Jesus, as it did for Matt — but rather, it is about the sin of harming children. The goal is to shine light on a dark, controversial topic that everyone, especially Christians, need to stop tip-toeing around because what is happening to our kids is dangerous and children are God’s most precious commodity. Matt is the best candidate to discuss this topic with, being a member OF the LGBTQ community who now sees through the lens of Christianity. The discussion is fiery, informative, raw, sometimes disturbing, and thought-provoking. We talk about how Matt came to know Christ, the horrific truth about the transition process that no one warns gender-dysphoric folk about, the realities OF gender dysphoria as a mental illness or a potential result of childhood v*c****s based on data, the de-population agenda 2030 plan as it correlates to LGBTQ movement, and of course about how this movement has been heavily indoctrinating children as young as 3 in schools (and in public: IE “Drag Your Kids to Pride” show) with this agenda, which leads us into revealing the most awful component of all: how this is all a gateway of normalizing p3d0philia and eventual transhumanism. Matt is articulate, educated and well-versed — with real science, evidence, studies and experience on this topic — and what’s more is Matt’s desire to glorify God in exposing the treacherous reality of this subject: ultimately all of this has the dark, sinister agenda to bring disorder and chaos to God’s design for men, women and children. You don’t want to miss this conversation, Christian or not, especially if you have kids in public school.

Episode 11 of Heaven & Healing Podcast, “From a Life of Psychedelics, Heavy Drugs, Over-dose and Depravity to a New Life in Christ | with Joshua Zatkoff” is OUT NOW on Youtube, Apple and Spotify, where Josh shares the compelling two-part testimony of how he came to know Jesus. Before knowing God, Joshua was a heavy drug user which landed him in unfortunate situations such as incarceration, rehabilitation centers, and even instances of overdose that left him on the brink of death. Though he considered himself well-versed across the drug spectrum, a lot of his use did include a variety of psychedelics. In this conversation, Josh tells the story of how his degenerate lifestyle led him to repentance and genuine faith in Jesus’ saving grace. But it doesn’t end there. Josh talks abut something that isn’t necessarily considered a popular topic amongst believers: back-sliding. He speaks on how his discouragement of others rejecting Jesus sort of took him back to drugs he swore away from, and shares a supernatural encounter he had with God after compromising himself by taking mushrooms again where he finally understood the magnitude of his sin, his foolishness of faith in self, the simultaneous loving wrath of our Lord, the dangers of psychedelics and the undeserved mercy of Christ that left him running back into the Fathers’ arms once and for all. Josh’s story is an inspiring example in so many facets. It shows how you are truly never too far gone to accept Jesus. It shows how incredibly patient Jesus is. It shows how very real the threat of spiritual warfare is at all times. It shows how important it is for Christians to remain diligent in Christ rather than of the world. It shows the essence of sin. It shows how God truly is both eternally loving and fiercely wrathful all at once. We talk about psychedelics, back-sliding, New Ageism what it means to be a new creation in Christ and so much more.

In the tenth episode of Heaven & Healing Podcast, I take on a huge topic: the evil of the music industry. Throughout my teenage years and most of my twenties, I accredited music to saving my life. I idolized musicians, their lyrics and artistry to the point where I genuinely felt as though music was the solitary thing keeping me from suicide. I was depressed, broken and traumatized — and the one thing I found my salvation in was music. Of course, in hindsight, I recognize that the healing I was searching for in music could only ever be found in Jesus Christ, but back then I didn’t know better. That’s why this episode is such a huge deal for me: I am crushing my own idols. In this episode, I explain the actual science of music — how the frequencies disrupt our natural bioelectrical currents, sending us into an alpha state where we lose our necessity to critically reason, thus literally having the capacity to change our character, sense of morality and spirituality. From there, I talk about what the Bible says God’s design is for music and how the devil has infiltrated that purpose as I go through the history of music and why 1953 is where everything changed for the worse. Of course, the history of the music industry cannot be discussed without the person responsible for inspiring it all: Aleister Crowley, a wicked man who rejected his parents’ devout Christianity by creating his own religion Thelema, a gnostic philosophy founded on libertinism. I break down how all famous secular music, from classic rock to modern hip-hop/rap/pop, stands on the pillars of Crowleian & Satanic structures — from the lyrics, to the symbolism, to the shows, to to the videos and how they use that alpha state to brainwash the masses. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. 1 John 5:19 The devil rules the world and the world controls the music. It’s quite simple. Control the music = control the masses. I close on a hopeful note, reminding you that God is sovereign and the Bible tells us that this music, the devil, and his followers, will be destroyed.

On the longest recorded episode of Heaven & Healing Podcast to date, I bring on my very best friend Alyssa Linker. Alyssa has been praying for my salvation for two+ decades and we have walked through every season of life together since we were 3. She is a born and raised Christian of a nuclear family unit, whereas I am just now coming to Christ as I approach my thirties and was raised by a single mother. In this episode, we talk about the stark contrast of our upbringings and highlight the important advantage Alyssa had growing up in a nuclear, biblical family over me whose mom gave more love than I knew what to do with, but unfortunately did not know how crucial Christ was as the foundation of that love. Alyssa spent her twenties walking within the guidelines of Scripture and because of her choice to maintain the obedience to the Lord she was taught in adolescence, she is now a happily, newly married homemaker with a God-fearing husband who provides for their household. She is flourishing as a woman as she prepares to expand their family. I, on the other hand, spent most of my twenties “following my truth,” living as a feminist, and going down one occultist hole after the other — and am still underway a heavy sanctification process as the Lord cleans house. The difference lies in what she had over what I didn’t: a mom AND dad — two Christian parents who live as God calls us to, and as a result, raised extremely capable, functional, poised, virtuous children that are servants of Christ. With this conversation, Alyssa and I get into how NECESSARY it is in this world to build a nuclear family on biblical principles to eradicate the sicknesses of fatherlessness, divorce, violence, sexual promiscuity and abortion that feminism has infected society with. Feminism ultimately seeks to dismantle traditional family paradigms as they are deemed “patriarchal” and “oppressive” in modern culture. Alyssa and I debunk those myths with data, facts, history, and Scripture. We encourage women to submit to Christ and thus embrace the true integrity of womanhood rather than cheap thrills of feminism. REAL empowerment lives in the truth God’s Word provides. +Subscribe to the podcast if you haven’t already and please give a 5-star rating and written review, as it is extremely helpful to spread the Good News and get this podcast into more people’s ears! +DONATE HERE TO HEAVEN & HEALING PODCAST MINISTRY: https://donorbox.org/heaven-healing-podcast-ministry 100% proceeds go directly to the support and maintenance of this podcast If you can’t donate, a simple prayer goes a long way! +instagram: @angelamarieucci +Alyssa’s instagram @birbshot Relevant/referenced Scripture in this episode: Genesis 1:27 Genesis 2:20-24 Genesis 5:1-2 Proverbs 19:14 Ecclesiastes 9:9 Ephesians 5:23 1 Peter 3:7 1 Timothy 2:11-15 Ephesians 5:25-31 Galatians 3:28 Proverbs 12:14 Proverbs 31:10 1 Corinthians 11:7 Matthew 9:20-22 Luke 7:37-50 Luke 18:15-16 John 8:4-11
If you are someone who practices oracle, you likely have one of Doreen Virtue’s old ‘angel card’ decks. If that’s the case, you should throw it in the trash because you aren’t talking to angels — you’re talking to demons. Doreen was a huge influence in the new age community for years — from oracle cards, to 70 best-selling books on topics like angels and mediumship, to traveling the globe with peers such as Deepak Chopra to promote spiritual-relativist ideologies — and she made a renowned living doing so. She had a farm in Hawaii with oceanfront views, shopped the finest clothes, and had more money than she knew what to do with, all the while thinking she was doing God’s work. Until 2017 when she heard Scripture describing false prophets. She realized that SHE fit the definition, that divination is detestable to God, and completely denounced her career, identity and lifestyle in repentance to the Lord. In this episode of Heaven & Healing Podcast, Doreen shares her new-age-to-Jesus testimony and what that process of sanctification has looked like over the past 5 years. From there, we dive into different aspects of new age spirituality, how demons are real, how hell is real, and how SIN is real. We discuss how new age spiritualist claims that “all roads lead to God” (except that ‘silly, misinformed Christianity stuff’), the Bible is corrupt, and there is no such thing as sin because of “duality” is a showcase of how crafty Satan is at insulating vulnerable people in his lies because they are wrapped in pretty (false) promises. New age spirituality is the devil’s way of catering to mankind’s inborn yearning for truth and salvation. While Satan isn’t very original, he is smart, so he simply offers us the secular COUNTERFEIT of truth and salvation, knowing it will only ever satisfy our flesh in a way that addicts us to the SEEKING process — therefore totally distracting us from the One our soul is ACTUALLY SEEKING: Jesus Christ. Like Doreen and I once thought, so many in new age genuinely believe that they are in communion with God and His angels — but Corinthians tells us that even Satan can present as an angel of light. Its all a lie. Christ is The Truth.

In episode seven of Heaven & Healing Podcast, I have a conversation with my sweet friend Amber Jeckovich all about the Law of Attraction and why it is a spiritual trap that comes from the enemy. Amber was saved from the New Age Movement like I was, but before Christ she was particularly deep into LOA work after watching someone close to her manifest a specific relationship. She used LOA frequently, from manifesting $1,000 to winning a free trip… all things that sound so incredible, yet the truth is, LOA is based in occultism and does not come from God. During this conversation, Amber shares her coming-to-Christ testimony, we talk about what the law of attraction is, how it actually WORKS which is what makes it such an appealing practice to pursue and how despite that efficacy, it is ultimately a dangerous deception perpetuated from the enemy. We also discuss how Scripture is taken out of context to justify the LOA practice, bring clarity to some of those verses, and highlight the contrast between the type of relationship with God LOA FALSELY CLAIMS you have with God as universal source oneness, versus the TRUE relationship God WANTS us to have with Him and His Son. Bouncing through an array of topics relating to this, Amber and I explain how focusing on manifestation tricks us into thinking pantheistic blasphemy that the universe and God are synonymous, that YOU are the one with universe and therefore able to create anything you want in your life by the power of your mind translating those thoughts into reality. We talk about how troublesome this idealogy is to adopt because it gives us the false promise that WE are the creators of life, so we then have no need for a “savior” and thus have no true relationship with or discipleship for Jesus Christ. And just like Satan tempted Jesus in the desert in Matthew 4 by offering Him all the kingdoms of the world if Jesus bowed to worship him, Satan uses the Law of Attraction to give you anything that you desire in this world if you pledge allegiance to his false light. LOA is potentially the most harmful component of the New Age Movement. We hope you find this episode insightful.

This is a topic I don’t see typically discussed amongst the Christian community, unless it’s within a hyper-charismatic realm claiming that all sadness is either demonic oppression or a result of one’s separation and/or lack of faith in God — two misconceptions that I feel to be extremely harmful, unproductive and biblically illiterate. This theology of glory creates the idea that we as Christians, if we “really know God,” should relish in the Joy of the Lord at all times — an ideology that can easily induce shame, guilt and fear in one who is already struggling and even turn them away from God altogether because of that. The fact is, we are born of flesh in a fallen world and although we are born again in the spirit of Christ, no longer OF this world, we are indeed still IN this world and therefore will inevitably experience negative emotion. Being a follower of God does not excuse us of pain, nor does it indicate any disfavor of us on God’s end. In this episode, I talk about how Christianity is not all about this pollyanna positivity mindset where we cannot know grief if we know God, as evidenced in the Bible. Despite both the secular world’s push of the “pursuit of happiness,” and the hyper-charismatic Christian’s take on basking in a constant high from God’s love, we actually see all throughout Scripture that the regular experience of a follower of God is not merely positive emotion. In fact, perhaps not even normally so. I use Job, Elijah, David, He-man, Jeremiah and Moses as a few examples of biblical greats that suffered from emotional bouts of sorrow, despair, anxiety, and even suicidal ideation and get into specific verses that support the fact that the joy of the Lord is not a replacement of depression, but rather an addition to it. My prayer is that you know that you are not alone in feeling depressed and/or anxious when that does come up for you by relating to these biblical figures that had deep, personal, intimate relationships with God and yet still endured emotional strife, and to leave you with the comfort of knowing all these things are temporary in His promise of eternity.

Episode 5 of Heaven & Healing Podcast features my beloved sister in Christ, Naela Rose. Naela is an ex-occultist with a background in womb worship, menstrual magic, psychic mediumship, yoga and goddess work both personally and professionally before Jesus saved her from the deception she was living in. She pulled a complete 180 and gave up her business over a year ago, and has lived in stewardship to the Lord ever since. In this conversation, Naela shares her coming-to-Christ testimony, leading us into discussion of the God-shaped hole in all of us. We talk about how every person on this planet has an innate longing within for God because He designed us to need Him; however, we live in a secular, global society that benefits and profits from convincing the masses that this longing can be self-fulfilled with what the world has to offer. Consequently, us humans attempt to fill the void with sex, sport, food, drugs, alcohol, intellectualism, porn, music, personal-actualization, or new-age spirituality as Naela and both fell victim to. God created every being that has ever or will ever live. We are made in His image, in His likeness, in His love, and therefore we need Him, as children of the Heavenly Father. But because God’s love is unconditional, He will never force us to accept this truth. He has declared free will for His children, and therefore we have been given the personal responsibility to recognize that need for Him. Because we are designed to need, love and serve Him — for He loves and delights in us — we are inherently programmed to worship something. Therefore, if it’s not God we rightfully choose, we will try fitting square pegs into round holes and find something to worship. We are wired that way. So without God, we become obsessed with or addicted to things, people, and relationships that we think will quench the internal thirst, only to be continually left high and dry because God is the Living Water. Many modalities of self-worship to idol-worship that we reach for in an attempt to fill the void that only God can fulfill within us, because He is the one who put it there. +subscribe to the podcast if you haven’t already +leave a 5 star rating and written review +share this podcast +Instagram: @angelamarieucci +find Naela on Instagram @undone_by_grace +take a screenshot of you listening and tag me to your story so I can mention and thank you personally
Self + self = more self. Self-love, self-hate, self-help — it’s all one in the same, because the root is the same: SELF. In this episode, I talk about the dangers of self-help culture, which include: assuming that we are good enough as is, capitulating a society that is literally SELF-centered, and watering down/edifying the biblical God—if not ignoring Him altogether to opt out for the “higher self” narrative instead. No matter how you spin it, self-help has one goal: self-actualization. Self-healing. A concept that sounds pretty to the ears, but ultimately defies Scripture. Self-help keeps our sights set on the mirror and whatever that reflection can finitely offer back to us, instead of on Jesus and our promised eternal salvation in Him. The thing about striving for self-actualization/healing within this personal development movement is that we do genuinely go into it with the best intentions — to grow and be better people — but the intention remains self-motivated, rather than for the glory of God, which leads us to idolatry of the self, creating more need for the self and no room for the Lord. With self-help culture, before you know it, you are so full of yourself that you don’t even realize how hungry you truly are for God. The reason you HAVE the hunger to grow that led you to self-help is because God designed you to need Him (John 15:4-5). You are hungry because it is GOD who feeds you your daily bread — not affirmations in the mirror, or daily journals, or a routine, or mindset training, or manifestation, or whatever else self-help falsely promises as the “thing” to help you heal you. So does this mean we should neglect our wellbeing? Absolutely not. It just means that we stop going within to find healing when that’s the same place we find our strife. The self cannot be both the problem and the solution—logically, it’s a fallacy. So instead, we focus on self-sacrifice over self-help: laying our life at the Lord’s feet and stop exalting the self & our efforts as if we ourselves are the god of our life. Stop reaching for the best of life and instead receive the life in Christ. If you were good enough on your own, you would have “done it” by now — you need Him. Desperately. We all do.

Heaven & Healing Podcast episode 3 features my sister in Christ, Jessica Torres: ex-new ager who had a 6 figure business helping women ‘heal’ through sensuality, sex and divine feminine empowerment. She taught on popular gnostic topics such as Mary Magdalene priestess-hood and embodying our relationship to God through the goddess spirit within, all before her unexpected conviction of the Holy Spirit that lifted the veil to show her that Jesus Christ is the only truth. She gave up her business, lost her romantic relationship, and joyfully laid her life at the Lord’s feet. In this conversation, we dive into the deceit of the divine feminine movement, how destructive it actually is in contrast to the healing that it promises, and unpack a range of topics within that realm — from sex, sensuality, trauma, relationships and more. Our goal with this dialogue is to share how true feminine empowerment does not come from defiance of the Creator, His Living Word, nor from “crushing the patriarchy” or becoming more culturally & socially astute than men — it actually comes from the surrender and submission to our Savior Jesus Christ. Women want to live by their own rules, with no sense of order or structure, because it feels good to our flesh and to our ego when we lack discipline or obedience. But this lifestyle of self-worship only leaves us craving more of that sensuality, giving us a false sense of security within the guise of ‘flowing goddess energy’ rather than bringing true fulfillment that can only come from living in accordance to God’s will. The mindset that God’s will (Christ->man->woman->child) is oppressive is a radial misrepresentation of His Word. What’s oppressive is the belief that there is freedom in the divine feminine, because you are imprisoned by your own flesh when you only live for your own desires. When you live within the structure of God, you are free from the world and resurrected in the Holy Spirit. The devil promises freedom in the world by leading you to submit to yourself and abandon God. God promises eternity by asking you to abandon the world and submit to Him. +Instagram: @angelamarieucci +Find Jessica on Instagram @imjessicatorres +Heaven & Healing Podcast available on YouTube, Apple or Spotify +leave a 5-star rating and written review on whichever platform you listen or watch!
In this episode, I dive into the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans (KJV) where Paul’s overall message is how salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone: not in our good works, nor who we are, but by our faith in Him. I elaborate on Paul’s Epistle as it profoundly breaks down God’s righteousness in four parts throughout the book: how His righteousness is needed by us, how it is provided by Him, how it is justified and how it is to be practiced. With God’s righteousness highlighted, that brings the topic of sin to the forefront of this episode — how we are sinful creatures by nature and therefore cannot save ourselves from the sin in which we are born into physically, which is why we must be willing to be born again spiritually in Christ. I invite both believers and non-believers alike to tune in, as there is something in this message for all of us. As Christians, this episode serves as a reminder that we are no better than any unsaved person, for we are just as ungodly in our flesh, and with that, to remember that even in our walk with Christ we will still struggle with hardship, pain and temptation. For non-believers, it is an inquiry of how well your self-authority has been working for you in terms of your suffering and invites you to consider how your lack of faith in God still requires your faith in the disbelief, therefore you do have the capacity of faith to place in Him after all. While being resurrected in Christ does not make us sinless, it does free us of the bondage of this fallen world because we are no longer living for the flesh, but for the Father. Thus, we are resurrected from the death of sin our body provides and made new in our spirit from what His righteousness provides. Suffering may not always be our choice in this human experience, but our salvation in Christ always is, because He has given it to us freely for the taken. Although God does not promise us an easy life, He does indeed promise us eternal life.

There will be no new M&B episode but am saving for now to showcase how very real this transformation is — If you would have told me this time last year that in 365 days time, the podcast I had JUST launched a month prior would be dead and gone… buried along with the rest of my former astrology life… because instead of an esoteric self-healing podcast, I’d be starting my own ministry to talk about how much I love Jesus, I would have asked where I could buy whatever shrooms you were tripping on! And that’s the truth. I never imagined myself to be a “Jesus person” — and frankly, I didn’t get them. I didn’t understand why people who loved Jesus so much made it a point to let everyone else know. But it truly is one of those IYKYK things because… if you know, you know. There is nothing like His love, yes, but there is ESPECIALLY nothing like his salvation. See, both are given to us freely — His love and salvation — but it is not up to us to be loved by Him, because we simply are. To have His love is a given. To experience His love is another thing entirely, though — because THAT is a choice. To experience his love is to first WELCOME the salvation that He is so eager, willing and joyful to give you. Of the near decade I spent engulfed in the false light of new age spirituality — no fancy esoteric modality, technique or practice has ever brought me the true soul healing that Jesus Christ has given me in a few short months in accepting Him as my Lord and Savior. Turns out it wasn’t a blocked charka. Turns out it wasn’t my Venus in Cancer. Turns out it wasn’t an energy imbalance. Turns out it wasn’t an old karmic debt or past-life trauma resurfacing. Turns out I didn’t need to carry an obsidian in my bra every day. Turns out, I was missing God. The TRUE, LIVING God, that is. I had formed an idol of who I believed God should be based on how I felt, as many do in the new age, so I THOUGHT I knew Him, but I was only experiencing the counterfeit Christ who tells us to follow our heart. Jesus was clear. Follow Him. Proverbs 3:5-6 In this first episode of Heaven & Healing Podcast, I share my personal new age to Jesus testimony, talk about the difference between God’s unconditional love vs. unconditional tolerance, discuss what type of content you can expect from future podcast episodes, and so much more. The scripture focus of this episode is Isiah 47:13 — AKA the verse that finally did me in and admit astrology was not God’s will. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts and hope you are looking forward to more. Sending love to you all. Blessed be. Praise God!
