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
of the peace and unconditional love that await us all.”
It is a blessing for me to acknowledge the women of today, who as mothers and nurturers, honor their role as laid out for them by our Heavenly Father. As mothers, when aligned to the perfect blueprint of God, we become gifted nurturers, matriarchs and the heart of the home. Mothers are in the most advantageous position to make a sacred difference in the lives of their children, as are the dads who are left behind should the mother pass away, because the father then becomes the heart of the home and thus the home's nuturer and care giver. It is comforting to know that our mothers who have left this world and moved on to the the after-life are still aware of us, love us and care for us. Children hunger for the love they once experienced while in heaven and they look to their mothers for that love . . . and we are blessed to give them what they need! Love is the most vital emotion for all of us, and even more so for our children. They especially need love, and when given in abundance, they thrive to grow into emotionally sound adults.
As co-creators with God, our precious world can also use our "Mother's Prayers," —especially today.“the purest prayers because of their intense desire and, at times, sense of desperation…” Embraced By The Light, page 104
When I was in heaven, I was told that inspiration comes not only from God, but from nurturers and caregivers, as well. More and more today that loving nurturer is a father or other family member. Many children today are being raised by grandmothers and fathers, who also have the ability to implore God mightily for those they care for. As women and nurturers, attuned to God, we can turn quickly to him. Let us use our strength and turn to God in prayer for our children, those we care for, society and for our world. Prayer is the greatest tool we have been given, and when we add the desires of our hearts with our love—it is the greatest force in this world! Our Heavenly Father promised us that he would not intervene in our mortal lives unless we ask for his help. And we can invite his help as as we pray for our concerns and pray for our loved ones. I love the scripture “Pray for one another that you may be healed…” (James 5:16)
Women, we are amazingly close to our Father in Heaven and perfectly created by him. We can help bless our world when we strengthen the eternal bonds within our own families. We can also strengthen our world by sending out ripples of Christ-like energy and love to all. Women; whether you are a mother of children or not, you were created and placed in the world as healers and nurturers, please join me in prayer for our youth, for our families and for our world.
Dearest Heavenly Father, Thank you for your wisdom and love and for blessing us with your presence when we come to you in prayer. Bless and strengthen each mother and nurturer on earth, guide them in wisdom to give the best to their family and children, that they might be honored and called blessed. May we each respect our honored place with you and feel our eternal bonds of love for one another in a greater way. Bless our children with greater understanding, love and trust, that their hearts might turn to their parents for guidance—just as you would lovingly have us turn to you. Father, guide us in all that we do. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.
With all my love, Betty
Near Death Experiences
Roy Mills Remembers His Pre-birth Life in Heaven
From an interview with Roy Mills about his book The Soul's Remembrance
I feel like I got one foot in heaven and one foot on earth, and I try to use all my memories to help everybody I can to encourage them and uplift them and help them through this world and try to let them know that, you know this earth ain't all their is. Where I was at was very bright within the buildings. And outside the buildings it was just rolling green pastures with beautiful gardens and flowing springs. You just completely bathe in love and it just is beyond earthly words to describe. It's much than even the love from your Mom. It's just a place of perfect peace and tranquility.
You can only experience so much in heaven. Everything that is positive is in heaven. We grow from all things, negative and positive, and negative stuff don't exist in heaven, we had to come down to earth and experience these things.
And we understood that we couldn't grow but just so far in heaven, and we had to experience the total negative and positive part for our spirit to really develop, for understanding and grow in spiritual knowledge and to return back to heaven with this knowledge and understanding.
We spent a lot of our time associating together and bonding in heaven. My Children, I spent a lot of time with my children and an awful lot if time with my friends. I knew that I was going to go through some real rough times in my early childhood. We had planned it all and did it all right in heaven. Everything was planned out before we came to earth.
I met Mary, Mother of Jesus, and I describe this in detail in my book. No matter what I wrote, it is very inadequate to cover the supreme love that she projected out to me and the feeling I had. Words just cannot describe it.
I also got a chance and met Jesus. Now again, words fail to describe it, even though I wrote about it extensively in my chapters in my book.
And also I met God himself. That to me is the pinnacle of heaven and is the most exciting of all the chapters to me is when I met God, himself. Most everyone else did too who entered the world and we received our missions. And I asked for this mission that I brought to earth. I asked him if I could bring this mission to earth of pre-birth memories. And he granted it to me, but we are all given missions to fulfill.
Also, when we choose our missions we choose roadblocks. I refer to them as roadblocks, is things we put in our path. If we stray off our mission, it is things that are happening in our life to put us right back on the right path. You see this quite often throughout your life where people who've had tragedy in their life and all of a sudden they find themselves back in the arms of God again.
My chain of conscious thought has never ceased from the time I was created to now. I very well remember coming out of heaven. There was an angel that brought me down to earth and took me to my mother. This angel put me, took me within about 3 or 4 feet of my mother and gave me a gentle push or glide and instantly I was inside my fetal body, was inside my mother. Well I was wondering, I wasn't on earth and I wasn't in heaven anymore, where was I at? But also I found out that once I entered this fetal body, it had abilities, it had profound thought.
It was warm, I was real warm, I was real comfortable where I was at. I knew everything she knew. I could think the same thoughts that she thought, I knew. I could feel her emotions, hear what she heard and see what she saw if I wanted too. I could look through her eyes, I could feel anything, it was just like she and I was one.
I could still communicate with the angels that was in the heaven, my angel guide. In the last days in heaven before I came to earth, this angel started using my mother's voice and I asked her. I said, "Well why are you doing that for?" And she said, "This helps. The reason I'm using your mother's voice is so you will know your mother's voice when you are born, you'll be used to it."
The greatest thing you can do is complete a mission given by God. Where you can stand in front of God and say, "I have completed my mission."
I know what's there and I know what awaits me there. And so I feel that I can best serve God by completing my mission here and helping as many people on this earth as I can, point the way back to God through Jesus. So, wherever he sends me, I will go!
How Can We Improve Our Ability to Connect with Family and Friends?
Dearest Betty, Thank you for coming back to earth and for sharing what you were taught in heaven and about the importance of our relationships with family and loved ones. Yet technology seems to be taking over and often gets in the way. Do you have any insight on how to deal with this?
“God began to place in my life people who carried spiritual energy that could sustain me along the way. I had been shown during my experience that we draw energy from each other—some people we receive energy from and some draw energy from us—in a constant exchange.”—The Awakening Heart, page 102
Often we feel overwhelmed by the multitude of distractions in this world of technology and find ourselves turning to computers for everything—excluding more and more time with the essence of human touch and authentic communication with our fellow man. We turn to easy access in our communications, texting or leaving a comment on a facebook page and then sometimes get interrupted and forget to answer all together. These new technologies are a blessing that we want to take full advantage of and use to our fullest benefit, however, they are no replacement for the touch of a hand, a soft kiss on a cheek, a loving embrace or even the vibrant connection we often feel at hearing a dear one's voice.
When we make the time to give quality attention to our loved ones, energy penetrates as it flows from one person to another, opening the way for our spirit to expand and become strengthened, not unlike our relationship with our Heavenly Father through prayer, which is our personal touch with him. Our personal, physical connection, one-on-one with each other, is invaluable when it comes to our children. As parents, we never know when a child or loved one may need our help, and when that time comes, we want them to know they can come to us and express their heart and thoughts while being able to listen and be receptive too. This takes practice, it takes nurturing a physical and emotional connection. It takes more than a text message or facebook post. As we spend less and less time with our children, mobile devices and other computerized technology, become the child's focus, the child's educator, the child's emotional attachment—and they become addicted. It takes genuine effort spent on connecting one-on-one and as a family, through quality time spent together and gestures of love.
Our gestures of love are like deeds of faith. The Bible tells us that "Faith without works is dead." From our thoughts and desires, seeds are planted. We nurture these seeds with our deeds, our loving actions: a kind word, a reassuring smile, giving of ourselves.
While in the spirit world, I saw that God is Love and Love is giving! Our goal should always be "to have the mind of Christ." And our actions should reflect his loving essence, always! To be Christ like is to set the greatest example of all! We can be confident that as we lend our energy and prayers for others, our growth and direction are connected to a higher plan.
Take the time to build and nurture your bonds with family and loved ones. Put your best foot forward for the strangers that come in and out of your life. Be that example of compassion and kindness for others that will teach your children well. Truly communicate with your loved ones and especially connect with God. Sometimes the most effective lesson for our children is when they listen to us earnestly and lovingly talk to our Heavenly Father.
In summary, fill your life with uplifting words in your physical communication with your children. Do not allow their influence to be left up to the world and its devices. God is well pleased with our commitment to raising our children under his guidance within our individual families. And when our children are grown, we will feel the reward of our efforts many times increased as those loving ripples from our children come back to bless us many fold!

Nothing Can Separate Us from Christ's Love
“...neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Romans 8:38-39
My Dearest Friends,
There is a man who we all know and who we all love very deeply. He is our brother and friend, our fellow journeyer who also walked this earth and is known here as Jesus. When I saw him, I ran to him, because of the tremendous love I have for him and he has for me. He has incredible love, incredible humor, incredible compassion, kindness and strength, and he taught me most of what I brought back to share and do so as often as I can and with all my heart. I want everyone to know they are loved by God beyond what they can possibly imagine here in mortality where we are separated from that pure knowledge and divine love which fill heaven. And one day we will all return to Jesus. When your mission is complete and you "graduate" from this earth life, perhaps you will be met by family and friends first, we all will have our own greeting party, but at some point you, too, will meet Jesus Christ as I did. And, you too, will experience his unconditional and infinite love!
During my near-death experience, I was shown that God is there for us even in our darkest hour. Even when we feel most alone and far away from him, he is still mindful of us. Even when in our discouragement and despair, we doubt we could have any connection at all with the divine—God is still there! During one of the most horrendous times of my life when I felt far, far away from God, during my visit to the afterlife, I learned that Jesus had been with me all along.
In my life review I was shown this particular time when I was 19 years old and going through a terrible divorce. I was Catholic at the time, which made choosing a divorce all the more difficult. Divorce is never easy and adding my beliefs of what I had been taught about divorce led me to believe I was a sinner and that hell was certain for me because breaking up a marriage was such a horrendous thing to do. I suffered socially as well and felt the full measure of the pain of what it meant to be "divorced" at that time.
Added to my struggle were my financial challenges of having three small children whose Native roots were strong in their physical traits. Historically, many have looked down on and mistreated the Native People and I am half Native, which was clearly visible in my children. With my three-little-Indian son and daughters, it was very difficult to find anyone who would rent to us. I could not find gainful employment because I had to care for my little ones and our needs and suffering drove me into utter and complete despair.
At my lowest point, with hungry children and bare cupboards, being shunned by my church and feeling so alone, I remember getting on my knees to approach God and throwing my Bible down on the floor underneath my bed! I was angry and I cried out to God, "Where are you! I am alone with my children! I have read, studied, prayed and this is my reward?"
Then when I reviewed all this in my life review during my NDE, Jesus showed me he was there the whole time! He not only got me through, but I saw that God had another plan for me, a higher plan that was already on the way though I couldn't see it or even begin to glimpse it at the time. In just a few months I would meet my future husband who would be filled with devotion and would bring with him the ability to be an excellent provider, protector and caregiver, not only for me, but for my children as well.
Christ's love is in each of us. We may have a veil of forgetting that prevents us from a personal witness of him, but our spirit does remember him and loves him with all our heart. Spiritually he is our elder brother, and deep within our spirit we feel that eternal and familial connection. Deep within, we all know him and know his great love for us, that is so powerful and infinite he came here to earth and gave himself for us, collectively and individually. The gift of Christ's love is within every single one of us and nothing can take us away from his love!
To this day I am moved to tears whenever I recall my most sacred time with him and all that he showed me. My memory of our pre-mortal life with him fills my heart with thankfulness for my Lord and Redeemer, my brother and friend, my Savior and God! I recall how I was shown Jesus preparing to come to earth—we were all there! We all knew the suffering he would endure for us which saddened us because we love him so much. Yet we cheered when we learned that through his mortal life, he would help us learn to love and that we could grow spiritually to be more like him.
We learned that he would come to earth to remind us of our heavenly home with God, our Heavenly Father, that his life would be our greatest example of God's love and that we would return to him unscathed by the challenges earth would offer because of his loving sacrifice of his life for us. We knew he would give his life for us and we were sorrowful for him because of our great love, yet we rejoiced for the gift he would bring us. I remember looking on his majestic countenance, now having completed his mission, triumphant over death and I want to shout "Praise God! He lives! My eternal Savior lives!" Today I know Jesus lives because he lives in my heart and I thank my Heavenly Father for his love, that he gave his Son to teach us the way back to him and how to love.
In our darkest hour, God is there. When it seems worst, keep going! Don't give up! We just need to experience a little more so he can give us the blessing he wants for us. The gift is already on its way, it is already prepared even before we ask. During my visit to the spirit world, when I was shown the prayers shooting up to heaven as lights that I wrote about in Embraced By The Light, that vision began with being shown a single family kneeling in prayer. Angels were already gathered around this family with answers already prepared. They knew each heart of this particular family and the prayers that would be prayed. Answers to those very prayers had already been carefully prepared and the angels eagerly awaited each invitation through the actual prayers so they could dart away to their destination and begin manifesting God's answers.
We each are more loved than we know. We each are more cared for and have more help than we realize. We each have a carefully and lovingly crafted blueprint designed by our Heavenly Father who understands our capabilities much better than we do and whose desire is to bless us. And he knows what will be for our greatest good because he has the perfect plan that is for our greatest joy and ability to love. We must place our trust in him and believe in his loving care of us. We are his children, created from his love and all covered by Christ's loving sacrifice for us. Our Savior's life and teachings show us the way and nothing can separate us from his love!
Jesus died for us, let us live for him! Take time the following weeks away from the everyday clamor of your lives and seek out good works that will draw you closer to Jesus. The world would condemn him, our society would distract us from the true meaning of his life while directing us away from heavenly gifts toward focus on the worldly. Do not allow this! During these Easter weeks—make time for Jesus! Take the energy to find music, writings and fellowship that will edify your spirit and increase your ability to accept Christ's gifts of love and forgiveness. May you and your loved ones have a most wonderful Easter filled with Christ's love and know beyond any remnant of doubt that nothing can separate you from his love!
With all my love, Betty
God bless you and thank you for coming here.
May you feel the Spirit of God within every page
And know that he loves you unconditionally
He will never forsake you.
There is power in our thoughts. We create our own surroundings by the thoughts we think. Physically, this may take a period of time, but spiritually it is instantaneous. If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely…All creation begins in the mind…Thoughts are deeds. —Embraced By The Light - pages 58-59
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on the these things. Philippians 4:8
Thank you, Father for guiding me in how to govern my thoughts. Your instructions are perfect and praiseworthy. Help me to use the power of my mind to bless all that surrounds me. Keep my thoughts pure, honest and kind.
Affirmation: Since all that I create begins in my mind, I think on virtuous things.
“Today is the day the Lord hath created, I will rejoice and be glad in it”
As we learn to Praise God in all things, even through our trials, even through our struggles—we will find our trust in God grow stronger. We will begin to feel a peace that passes understanding and is not of this world. And we will find a greater alignment with God that grows our confidence in our ability to follow his direction in our daily lives. "Be in the world but not of it" is a challenge common to all of us and learning to Praise God in all things can help us meet this goal.
This short podcast (25 minutes) will inspire you toward greater faith and closeness to God.
