Of all the near-death stories I’ve read or heard of thus far, Betty Eadie’s story, ‘Embraced by the Light’, gives the most insightful and profound glimpse into our true nature and where we come from. Her story is full of fantastic concepts including the existence of many worlds beyond earth, and the presence of giant ‘Warring Angels” dressed in armor, ready to protect us with a prayer’s notice, and the visibility of our prayers on earth as beacons of light.
At the age of thirty-one, Betty died in a hospital due to complications from a partial hysterectomy. At death, she “felt a surge of energy”, “a pop or release” then her spirit pulls up and out “as if by a giant magnet.” She felt free and…alive. What’s more she was alive with superhuman powers. She could see “from all directions at once—from in front, behind, and from the sides.” She was weightless and could therefore, move with superhero agility and speed, even through walls. Quickly the realization dawns, “This is who I really am.”
