Sometimes We Have To Learn From The Visions Of Children

When St. Peter preached at Pentecost he quoted the prophet Joel 2:28-32
28  “And it shall come to pass afterward,
    that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    your old men shall dream dreams,
    and your young men shall see visions.
29 Even upon the menservants and maidservants
    in those days, I will pour out my spirit.
30 “And I will give portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. 32 And it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls.

In our own day we see young men and women seeing visions.   We just went to the movie "Heaven Is For Real" and thought it was very well done.  That young man and this young woman have seen visions and they have been told to others.  Are they authentic?  Each person has to judge for themselves.  God is real, of that I am quite certain, and so heaven is real too for God does nothing without an end in mind and heaven is His intended end for us if we only cooperate, which it appears we are mostly not doing.
