Awakenings from the Light: 12 Life Lessons from a Near Death Experience, Author Nancy Rynes
Nancy Rynes was riding her bicycle when a large SUV approached. The vehicle’s driver, absorbed in texting while driving, plowed right into Rynes. Suffering from severe spinal and head injuries, Rynes knew she was dying. At that moment, she underwent the first of two life-changing near-death experiences—her consciousness split between her frightened, injured self laying on the road, and an impartial, peaceful observer-consciousness who watched as first responders fought to keep her alive. Her second, more lengthy near-death experience came days later, during the surgery that attempted to repair her traumatized spine.
Rynes, a scientist and confirmed skeptic, was shown the wonders of Heaven, experiencing joy, love, and beauty on such a grand scale that she wept at its magnitude. She then met and spoke with a Being who gave her insights into life, love, and the wonders of Spirit. After her tour of Heaven, she was returned to her body to begin the long, slow process of recovering from injuries her surgeon affirms should have killed her.
In Awakenings from the Light, Rynes recounts the amazing sights of Heaven, and explains the remarkable insights into life she returned with to share with others. She was gifted with a second chance—a precious opportunity to bring a little bit of Heaven into her life on Earth. The wisdom she passes on could well change your life as well.
“You have expressed your story so clearly, and positively that I can feel that love floating off the page. Bless you. “ Richard V.
“Nancy, thank you for sharing this. I have heard a number of NDEs before but have believed none to this point primarily because they were told by attention seekers. I don’t believe that is the case here. I’ve never heard it explained so well…Thank you for bolstering my faith.” Lou B.
Nancy Rynes’ friends call her “the atheist who went to Heaven.” While Nancy started out her education as an artist, she went on to earn a degree in geology. The sciences taught her to base her views on things she could measure, and since spiritual matters were not measurable, for her they did not exist. The skepticism remained until January of 2014, when Spirit gave her a wake-up call in the form of a traumatic accident and near-death experience (NDE). Since her NDE, her life has changed drastically and she now writes books and teaches about the Divine, what happens when we die, and how we can bring a little bit of Heaven to our lives on Earth. Nancy is also an award-winning artist, represented in galleries across the western USA. For more about Nancy, her books, and art, please visit: http://NancyRynes.com
WHAT COMPELLED NANCY TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES?
One afternoon in early 2014, I was wheeled into an operating room so that surgeons could fix part of my spine that was shattered as a result of a traumatic accident. I was a staunch atheist going in to that surgery. When I finally came out a few hours later, my viewpoint had completely shifted. I had died on the operating table and my soul had begun its journey to heaven. During my near-death experience (NDE), I was gifted with so much Divine love, incredible beauty, and given so many spiritual teachings that I could no longer deny the existence of a Higher Power. I immediately began to write down everything I had experienced during my experience so that I could bring heaven’s wisdom into my own life. But Spirit’s teachings seemed to take on a life of their own. Friends requested that I make them available to a wider audience, so I posted a brief version on my blog (www.TheSpiritWay.Blogspot.com ). Soon, I realized that there was *so* much I wanted to tell people about heaven, Spirit, and Divine love, that I decided to put it all together in one place. “Awakenings from the Light” documents my change from atheist to believer, and gives you ways that you can begin to bring some of heaven’s wisdom into your own life. My hope is that we all work together to bring a little bit of heaven’s grace into our time here on earth.
