Embraced By The Light | Betty J. Eadie Official Website
Above All Else Love One Another
My Mission & Purpose: Though Embraced By The Light chronicles my near-death experience and amazing journey into the spirit world, its main purpose is to reach hurting souls and bring greater hope & quality to life, give comfort through hardship & loss of loved ones—and to help establish direction through daily living. However, perhaps more important than anything else—its purpose is to bring to its reader the powerful message of God's unconditional and eternal love for them and the message “Above all else, love one another.”

“Compelling and infinitely reassuring, Betty's vivid account of the afterlife will give you a glimpse
of the peace and unconditional love that await us all.”

Hold On to the Promises of God

      My Dearest Friends,

      As the Holidays approach, let us not be distracted by the things of the world that would diminish the spiritual blessings and meaning for which Thanksgiving Day and Christmas are celebrated. Thanksgiving is a great time to show gratitude and to praise God in all things. Let us remember this Thanksgiving the knowledge we have been blessed to receive of our Savior, of his forgiveness and of his unconditional love for us, and of our return to him when we complete our missions here on earth.

      When I think of the "other side," I think of the spirit world and the glimpse I was shown of our dwelling place with God. I was told during my visit there, that as we learn more about him and about the after life with him, we are then better able to live our lives here.

      “…it is important for us to acquire knowledge of the spirit while we are in the flesh. The more knowledge we acquire here, the further and faster we will progress there.” —Embraced By The Light, page 84

      Our world is becoming more and more complex and challenging. We see the signs of the times that are foretold in the Bible.

      “...and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity ...Men's hearts failing them for fear...” (Luke 21:25, 26)

      Yet we need not fall to fear! We are not left alone to find our own way or to lead our families blindly. Wake-up calls are sounding, can you hear them within? These are loving alarms, firm heavenly nudges, that give us "heads up" and remind us to look up from daily activities, to turn heavenward for our Heavenly Father's guidance, while feeling inward for his wondrous love and perfect will, for his strength in all things we are called to overcome and endure.

      “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5, 6)

      When our Heavenly Father wants us to be particularly aware, we feel his impression within our own spirit. Sometimes this can feel like a wave of anxiousness, but it is only caution that we feel signaling us that something requires our attention. The best response is not to let fear take over, rather, acknowledge the feeling or impression and turn to gratitude by thanking God for the awareness—and then remain open for follow-up impressions of instruction to come. We are all intuitive and able to receive helpful spiritual influence. Our awareness of this gift and acknowledgment of it will open us to greater information and often tell us what to do next.

      Then as we follow higher direction, we can become "earth angels" lifting the vibration of those we encounter. While yet in heaven I was shown the Earth and all its people in turmoil—and at the same time I was also blessed to watch as angels surrounded the world in demonstration of their love and great care of God's creation. Their love for God shown brightly in their great union of devotion to his work of love surrounding our world as they sang beautiful, loving songs filled with healing tones that created perfect vibrations. These beautiful, healing tones of song began to nurture and heal all that was ill in the world.

      That glimpse remains vivid in my mind and I still feel its expression of the purest love and concern. God's love and care for us is eternal and from that experience I knew we are never alone in life's struggles and that God is always blessing us with encouragement and guiding us no matter the painful loss or discouragement.

      When I came back from my near-death experience, I returned with sure knowledge and gifts that were given to me for my mission. Yet I missed the love I felt there and being in the presence of the Savior. This heartache led me to want to reconnect with heaven in every way that I possibly could.

      “Through prayer we are reminded of who we are, where we are going, and what God would have us do. By listening to God's answers to our prayers, we learn the language of the Spirit, which is so important for us to learn. But before we can listen, we must invite.”—The Ripple Effect, page 96

      We must always acquiesce to God's will—he knows what experiences will bless us and we must trust what he allows. Yet we do have a part in opening ourselves to his love and spirit. I wrote in The Awakening Heart what works for me to enhance my heavenly connection as well as my connection to my own spirit as I give my life in service to God and always strive to follow his will.

      "In each of us, I have learned, there is a place where our spirit dwells…I have learned to enter a quiet place within me and reflect on my spiritual needs…I allow myself to become very still, something I can do anywhere, at any time. Then I invite God's presence to enter. As I contemplate that unseen, spiritual part of me, I feel it expand to become the greater part, filled to overflowing with his love . . . I always wanted to be in tune with my spirit but I saw that this was a process that I had to develop until it became as natural to me as breathing. Through prayer and stillness, I began to develop the ability to be naturally in touch with my spirit.”
—The Awakening Heart, pages 215-218

      My dear spirit brothers and sisters, our lights are so needed in the world today but we cannot give to others what we do not have within to pour from. So as we grow our awareness of others' needs, let us expand the love we have to give within by strengthening our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.

      It is so very important for us to begin walking more closely together. Being united in looking towards our Heavenly Father will bring us to safety and to his highest love. Today, the heavens continue as they always have in assurance that God is Almighty, and that there is nothing to fear.

      May we place our complete trust in God, seeking his will always and holding to his promises I pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

       All my love,

Are there levels in heaven?

From the chapter “Our Heavenly Home” of The Ripple Effect

Listen to pages 8-10 of “The Ripple Effect”
(click above to play in a new window or use the player below)

        "Are there different levels in heaven?" is another common question. Another woman writes and asks, "Is there a hierarchy of goodness in heaven? My worry is that my mom, who was an angel on earth, will be in an elevated heaven, and we will not be reunited with her."

        One of my favorite people in the Bible is Paul. He tells us that, "There is one glory of the sun, and another of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory." (I Corinthians 15:41) I too learned that different levels or degrees of glory exist in heaven. Some spirits appear brighter and more glorious than others, yet it is important to note that no spirit judges another because of their station or degree of growth. Individuals are who they are, and they are accepted and loved completely, regardless of personal development. Every spirit I saw was happy and engaged in loving service—meant for the mutual growth of one another. This is how they receive their greatest joy and continued growth.

        Here's a letter from another woman who visited heaven. She learned that spiritual growth on earth brings us to the next level and so on until we find our rightful position.

        As I lay dying in the emergency room, I saw someone spiritual standing at the end of my bed. I left my body and went to the beautiful place that you describe in your book. I met such a wonderful person and although I believed in Jesus Christ, I would not say that it was Jesus who I met, but he showed me love and respect. I began to berate myself and show him pictures of my terrible life. He was very gentle and took each picture of my life and turned it around and said, "This is what really happened." I was so surprised at how things had truly unfolded in my life, in ways that I never dared to dream were possible.

        I was shown how there was room in heaven for everyone ever created . . . something I could not have fathomed here on earth. I also saw that there were places in heaven that can only be filled by one particular individual and that each of us has a perfecting that is taking place so that we can "belong" or fit into that place when we go there. He showed me that there was no point in jealousy because each person had to have their own particular experience in order to be ready for heaven. I did not want to leave. I did not miss my children, and felt so much more developed and content there.

        I was also shown places that were empty or not filled by the ones that were supposed to fill them, which saddened him briefly. But because there is no sin or sadness there, that passed. Then he said to me, "Do you know why those places are empty?" I supposed that it was because the people had sinned or were being punished. He said, "No, it is because they do not want to be there."

        When we are able to expand our minds and hearts to accept the riches of heaven, we will receive them. This is our Creator's promise to us. To accept, we must believe. To receive, we must open. To gain more, we must share.

        Although there exist many glories or "mansions" in heaven, I did not consider them greater or lesser, just different. They are levels of understanding and development, not of privilege. The painful lesson I learned was that I possessed a judgmental attitude that was not acceptable. I was not to judge a single soul, not to speculate on which spirit would dwell in which degree of glory, or on which spirit would receive which heavenly mansion. This very concept opposes the spirit of heaven. Although we may sense a greater or lesser development in people, we are not to speculate on their final judgment. Only God knows where we will be happiest. In his wisdom he will ensure us the opportunities to experience and enjoy all that is possible—which is far beyond what anyone can imagine for themselves.

How Can One Overcome Anger?

Hi precious Betty. I've read your first two books and am now beginning The Ripple Effect. Your story has deeply touched me. I resonate with your message whole heartedly. Do you have any insights or truth that might help someone dealing with anger?

In this world of billions of people, many lead lives of loneliness and desperation. Because of pain produced by others, some protect themselves behind walls of anger or fear, lashing out at or retreating from others. God has shown me that the precious cure for their pain lies within each soul. The cure…is honest and pure love. God's love. Unconditional love. It resides within each of us naturally at our beginning.”
—The Ripple Effect, page xvi

Anger is just an emotion and is a natural and instinctive state of mind derived from circumstances or relationships with others. It is distinguished from reasoning and knowledge because it is intuitive, in that, it is sent up from the subconscious mind. Our reaction to anger is based upon a whole array of factors—that are rooted in our past. Until the root of the anger is discovered, recognized and acknowledged, healing will not begin and anger will continue to surface when similar circumstances are triggered. One might look for the root of their anger by asking themselves: "When did this start?" "Why did this make me angry?" "How is this similar to something in my past?" "Were there environmental factors?" "Was I harmed or did I perceive misdeeds done toward me in some way?" "Was something left 'undone' leaving a lack of closure at an early age?"

Usually when one is challenged by anger the root is in their early childhood. Sometimes it can begin even in the womb where the fetus is aware of outside conflict and negative emotions. And as a child, we feel frustrated that we cannot stop the situation causing the fear and harm. We are angry at those causing us to fear and angry at ourselves for not being able to stop the harm we perceive—both must be forgiven. We must forgive those who we felt harmed us and forgive ourselves for not being able to change the situation in order to be able to move forward from the past and heal.

Fear is always a part of the root of anger. Fear leads to guilt and guilt leads to shame. All lead to frustration and frustration leads to anger. Frustration is the inability to handle a particular situation and can produce intense emotion buried for years but will eventually surface since feelings buried alive never die. Thus a cycle is started of intense emotion that builds until someone explodes, releasing the pent-up energy of frustration that has accumulated. We often attribute anger to having a "temper," when in reality, anger is pent-up emotions that build until they release, a pattern that often starts in early childhood.

Our reaction is what matters! We cannot help the feelings and thoughts that "pop" into our being when something "bad" happens to us—but we can help our reaction. We can be responsible for the choices we make and choose to come from a higher place of calm that is peaceful and loving. We do this by not responding to the negative things that occur to us at first, rather, we let them come and go, pausing until calm starts to replace negativity and we are able to choose our actions rather than be driven by pent-up energy that wants to clobber instead of be loving. I remember times when I went through many reactions in my mind before I felt that calm begin to come. Thankfully I did not respond to those negative thoughts but waited until I had the ability to respond in a way that I could choose from a higher place of being, as opposed to coming from the negative thoughts generated at first.

And when anger does surface? The energy must be released in some way. What I like to do is give that negative energy a job, a useful thing to do, like house cleaning or work in the yard, which are physical ways to release pent-up energy while accomplishing something I can feel good about. And while working at whatever chore I have chosen, I start a mental gratitude list that helps what is in my head connect with my heart and spirit and with God. Gratitude is a powerful godly energy that can counteract many forms of negativity. There is magic in gratitude and as we seek our Heavenly Father's guidance, he will guide us to his will for us which is always to bless us in some way. As always, prayer is key and the following is a prayer from my Daily Devotional that can help one who is dealing with anger:

Father, when the difficulties of life make me afraid or angry, remind me that the sure and divine remedy to pain is love. Help me to find love when I need it and to magnify love by sharing it freely with others. For I know that within all your children is the healing balm of love in pure expression for one another.”—Embraced By The Light Prayers & Devotions for Daily Living, September 14

Years ago, the hands of the god directed me straight to your first book within thousands of books when I was in a book store, thought I had absolutely no information about it being translated or printed. Since the words are not good carriers for the senses, I can't say anything about my feeling when I finished the book. Boundless infinite Love, wet eyes, and health... I passed the book to several of my friends, basically the spiritual ones. For me, the book is "downloaded" directly from the god, via a medium, one of his "selected" creatures.

Life Force from God Energizes All That Is Created

In every moment of our existence we tap into the energies surrounding us. We acquire the energy of plants as we eat them, smell them, feel them, wear them. We acquire the energy of animals in the same ways. We exchange energy with other individuals as we interact with them, touch them, hear them, look at them, even by reading their words.
—The Ripple Effect - page 73

It is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.
Ecclesiastes 5:18

Father, thank you for the many forms of life you have created. Plants and trees produce food and medicine and blanket the earth with their wondrous beauty and fragrance. You also blessed us with animals and birds; some to clothe our bodies and cover our feet, some as food, and others as loving companions whose spiritual energy and intelligence is seen in their eyes and felt through their spirits.

Affirmation:  My Creator’s vital energy flows to me from all his creation.
