Hi Betty,

Thanks for this beautiful Mother's Day newsletter.

I appreciate the inclusion of the preparedness information. I live in southern Oregon and there is much talk of earthquakes off the coast and volcanic eruption inland.

My spiritual teacher, who passed away nearly 2 years ago. studied with Sioux Medicine Man, White Deer from the Rosebud Tribe.

White Deer had much to share about the return of Christ and this Time of Purification on Mother Earth.

Thanks again for adding so much helpful and essential information regarding preparedness. I love God and Christ and deeply value your relationship with them, along with the wise, inspiring information you share.

Bless you and thank you,


Dear Betty,

I so much enjoyed your book "Embraced By The Light" and sent a copy to my friend Wayne, who is a prison inmate in Virginia. He, too, had a "Life-After-Life" experience. Your book has helped him and he wanted to share a letter with you but has no access to e-mail so I am including it here below mine.

Thank you for all the good you are doing in our world today!

In Christ's light and love,


Wayne's letter:

Dear Mrs. Eadie,

A friend of mine sent me a copy of your book "Embraced By The Light." I enjoyed reading the book. It opened up a part of my life that I have only told to my pastor, family members and my late wife, Susan. Mrs. Eadie, the reason I am writing to you is I remember my out of body journey.

My journey started March 9, 2009 when I had open heart surgery. I was in the hospital for 7 days because of a few set backs. After I went home, 15 days went by and on April 1st, I woke up sick and hurting bad in my chest. I went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and as I rubbed my chest, a hole opened up and bad looking stuff came out of the hole. I called Susan at work and told her what was going on. She told me to call my Mom and Dad being that they only lived a 100 yards from me. No one was home so I ended up calling the doctor's office and told them what had happened and I was told to come in to the office 35 miles away. I ended up driving myself and I don't remember much after that. I do remember the doctor checking me at his office and telling me he was going to put me back in the hospital. After that I can't tell you what all went on. What I know now is that I had a MRSA infection in my chest and throughout my body where a vein had been taken out of my left leg. The infection reopened the cut.

I was taken back to the OR and what the surgeon found was not good. My family was called in to the hospital but my wife could not be found. The doctor told my Mom and Dad that if I lived it would be hour by hour. Some time must have went by. I don't know but I did die. I remember seeing my Mom and Dad and my wife though I realize she may have been my sister. They were at my bedside and they were telling me to relax because it was going to be OK and not to fight with them.

After looking down at all of this, things got dark and I started moving out of the room and I could see lights and so many colors. At some point I was laying down on my stomach and there were two big white doors with black crosses trimmed in gold and the colored lights were all around me. The doors opened up and I smelled what was so bad. I saw reflections of flames off of dirty bronze. I lay there what seemed a while when I felt a hand on my left shoulder and a voice asked me if I wanted to go through the doors or did I want to stay. I said I wanted to stay but I wanted to see my Susan. I called her Babe. After that I didn't remember Babe or any one else. Not my parents or family and friends. Mrs. Eadie, the hand on me felt so good. There is nothing in this world that could make me feel that way. Not even the love of my mother a million times over.

Like you, I was showed my guides. One was a male and one was a female. The way they looked their gowns were so beautiful and the lights and colors were so sweet looking. It was like everything around me was so sweet: the smells from flowers and trees. I could taste it in my mouth. Like it says in the Bible the milk tastes like honey but so very, very, very much better. Mrs. Eadie, I was so happy. I have never been this happy here on Earth. I was showed things that were so good and I was shown things that until this day, I still have nightmares about. Why I was shown these things I will never understand. But I miss being so happy and I long for home—that was my home. I did not want to come back but I was told I had to come back to finish my mission on Earth.

Mrs. Eadie, I'm so sorry but I failed my mission. I was told and showed what my mission was by my guides. The female guide looked a lot like you and the male looked like a man that I met when I was a little boy 42 years ago. I'm almost 50 now. My mission was to paint the angels as I remembered them and even more important, to save my Babe and our marriage. Susan had gotten into a life style that I did not want to be a part of dealing with illicit sex, males and females. Susan left me on June 25, 2009 and was murdered between 11:30 pm on July 22, 2009 and 12:30 am on July 23. I was the one that was put in prison for Babe's murder because she had left me. I was not there to save her and now I'm not able to paint the angels.

Mrs. Eadie, when I was in high school grades 8-9 I took art but I did not try to learn how to draw or paint or any other art work. But now I am drawing pictures of places. I don't know if they are real places. I see the angels in my mind but have yet to draw them the way I see them so I guess I failed at both my missions. I'm so tired. Not only did I loose my breast bone because of the MRSA infection but I lost Susan and my freedom. All I wanted to do is please my Lord and Father God but all I have done is let them both down. I have always known the Lord and Father God but now I feel like my life is in limbo.

Before I came back, the Lord told me that I would come home in time. It's been seven years now since my journey started. I pray each night that this will be the night I go home to heaven. I have told family and friends to pray that I go home. I miss that home. Mrs. Eadie, I don't want to talk about what I have been through with any one where I'm at because they think our Lord Jesus Christ and Father God are a joke. I have asked my parents to get our pastor to come see me so I can talk with him but so far, no pastor. Our pastor came to see me while I was in the hospital in April 2009 and I told him some of what I have written to you. He said that he believed what I was telling him because he had been told some of the things I went through by other people that I have never met and he could see a big change in my faith. It would be nice to sit and talk with someone who has been there to our spirit home. I will not talk about a lot of what I went through. It's just too personal to talk about.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I have you and your family in my prayers.

Take care.


I am Janie, humble servant to my Lord Jesus. I had been born again by the prayer of salvation when I was 12. When I was 18 I had my first baby and I too saw my lifeless body. It took me a while to understand what was happening to me, when I realized what was happening I said, "But Lord my baby?" I returned to my body. The travel in the spirit is what I describe as travel like thoughts. When I started thinking of something, I was already doing it, so when I finished the thought, I was already finished doing it. My son that I had that day has since died and I wondered why The Lord allowed me to return only to see him suffer and die of cancer but I know now he was a blessing to me even for only his 36 years. I also have 4 more children and 8 grandchildren and realize that the Lord watches after them and me watching over them is just an illusion, I can only advise them and pray over them, they have their free will and life to live.

God abundantly bless you since you have been such a blessing,


dear betty,

my life has been torn apart, i've tried to take my life twice, and failed. i felt there was nothing left in me to carry on...UNTIL...i found your book. you have no idea HOW much you've helped me THANKYOU. I KNOW THAT I MUST CARRY ON. I'm sure i'll read your book many more times.

thank you again, and i hope you have a most beautiful day,


True story that happened to me. Years ago I was on a trip with my boyfriend, Dan. We were on our way up north toward Michigan and I was reading Embraced by the Light. I was at the part where it talks about non-judgement. I had to use the restroom so I asked Dan to stop at the next rest area.

When I walked into the ladies room there were 4 young girls that all looked like sisters. My first thought was, "Oh my God, where did these little heathens come from?" They were playing in the water at the sinks. They were all dirty and wore no shoes. I went inside a stall and closed the door. I could hear them loudly leave the restroom one by one. I thought, "Good! Now I can come out."

All at once a huge banging on my stall door startled me and shook all the other stalls too. I froze when the oldest young girl said with a very loud voice, "You have a nice day Carole!!!" She then walked out. I did not move. There was no way that girl could possibly know me!

I feel it was God's way of showing me how soon I had forgotten what I had just read in Embraced by the Light! And especially judging children. Your book remains in my heart and soul. I know that God sees all. I was shown this and shown it more than once. Thank you so much!

Peace be with you Betty!

Dearest Betty,

Many years ago I wrote about an experience I had when I was just a teen. I had sent this story "An End to Sadness" to your Heavenly Encounters that was included on your website.

Well, tonight for the first time in many, many years, I talked to a family friend of ours after finding her on face book about a month or so ago. I had wanted to find this family for years because I was not able to share my experience that I had shared on your website and was not even sure if the story was still there because it has been so long ago. So I looked and it was still there and I shared the link with our family friend Sharon, tonight for the first time.

You see my story is about her Brother Bruce, Bruce and I were very close friends when we were about 13 years old. I feel such relief that I finally am able to share this story with Bruce's family and she was overwhelmed and very thankful for me sharing this with her. I know this was in Gods timing and some one in their family needs to hear the story of Bruce, which takes place after Bruce died.

After Sharon read the story I then wrote this to Her.
"It seems so long ago when I wrote that and I still remember that experience today as if it was yesterday. I still draw strength from that encounter with Bruce and when my Husband died in 2012 my brothers wife Cher was here with me and we both felt the presence of a spiritual being that filled the room with the same peace I felt from the visit I had from Bruce just moments before my Husband took his last breath, but this time I had a witness."

I am now 61 years old.

Not too long ago I was wondering if there was really a God. I even told my mom that if God was real, then why is there so many bad things going on in the world? The only thing my mom said was "God is going to forgive you and he's going to show you he is real."

When I was at work I just had this feeling to go and look for miracle stories of people who believe in God. This website was the first that came up on the list and while I was reading this caught my attention, "There are three things that God wants you to know. 1) God is not mad at you. He could NEVER be mad at you. 2) God loves you. He really likes you. He watches you when you sleep and cannot wait for you to wake up! 3) God is gentle with you. He is gentle with you and you are gentle with others." And it was signed, "from Amy."

When I read that I felt like God was talking to me, telling me, that he forgives me! And that he is real, really made my day!

Thank you!

Dear Betty,

We lost my brother's only baby girl few weeks back, it was unexpected...my family and I are so depressed. I have been praying and at the same time I was asking God to tell her that we are sorry, that probably she was in pain before she died, that she is so innocent. We love her so! I asked God to please give me a sign that she is okay and even though she is not meant to be with us, I was hoping she died peacefully. The next day, I received your eNewsletter in my email, it was about LOSING A CHILD! In that story is a little girl who has 2 brothers. Coincidentally, our baby has two older brothers as well. Probably your email is a sign from God.

Thank you, somehow it helps ease the pain. I shared your story to my brother.

Dear Betty,

I read your book about a month ago and I have to tell you it changed my life. In 2011 I had a baby girl. She only lived 12 hours due to a heart defect and meconium in her lungs. Until I read your book I struggled so much with her death.

You see I did not grow up in a very healthy environment. There was sexual abuse and physical abuse in my life as a very young child. My family was not very religious so I never really had an understanding about God. I remember seeking him out when I was a child I would read the bible and learn from my friends about religion. I did ok until I got older in my 20's. I was angry with God for years and could not understand why my life had been so hard and where was he when all of it was going on? Then when I lost my daughter, I seriously lost it. My faith was completely gone. I felt like God was punishing me and I hated him and I told him all the time.

After daughter's death I heard about a basketball star who read your book after he lost a child to SID's. So the idea of your book remained in the back of my mind for 2 years but I didn't have the courage to take that step just yet. Then one day about a month ago I said, "Well I will give it a shot," and I bought it on my Kindle. I cried the entire time I read it! And afterwards I got down on my knees and sobbed and I prayed, I mean really prayed, for the 1st time in my life.

It was such a relief to know my daughter is not suffering and what brought me peace was that she chose me. She chose to come into my life even though she knew it would be short. I have no idea why it was so short. But I don't ask why anymore because I now there is a reason. I wont know why until I die and that is OK with me. I understand it is part of God's plan for me and I finally accepted her death. Your book was a blessing because it gave me an understanding of what happens when you die. It made me realize that God is about love and he has never punished me, it's just a part of my journey. I know he has always been there waiting for me to call to him.

Your book helped me so much I went out and bought the book for three of my family members who are struggling themselves. So I wanted to say thank you for having the courage to write about your experiences. I have read all your books and I loved every one of them.

I do seem to face a few obstacles since I read your book. I believe that Satan has loved my negativity all these years and I struggle every day to keep him away. Being negative is a hard habit to break when I have been that way as long as I can remember. I still pray but I feel so guilty because I shouldn't be negative. I honestly feel like there is a power struggle inside me. How do I break this habit? I know how happy I felt when I read you book and I want to feel that way all the time but I find myself struggling when things go wrong. The one good thing is that when things do go wrong, I don't blame God anymore, I just keep praying.

I think you are one amazing woman and you are such an inspiration. I continue to read you books as much as I can to help me get through my life. Thank you for taking the time to read this. God bless you and your family.




I just finished your book Embraced by the Light. Wow, what a message you have delivered to the world. With all the negative energy in the world today your book will hopefully serve as a wake-up call before it is too late. Blessings on you and your family. I have recently lost both my brother and sister and your message has helped me deal with the grief of their loss by knowing that our spirits will continue on after our earthly departure.


Hi Betty,

I just have a great sense to email you and tell you how your experience has brought joy into my life today. I read your book today and could not put it down. I'm a native women from First Nation in Saskatchewan Canada. The reason I'm writing is my mother was a Christian women who grew up on a poor farm and my dad was raised on a reservation. Then my mom moved to the reserve where I was raised. She raised me Christian but I never really understood the gospel till a few years back. I am now 24. Anyways, I never really believed in the native way it, just didn't really make sense to me.

One time I went to a round dance and I enjoyed the company. I saw how everyone enjoyed each other and it brought joy to me. I really participated in the round dance and tried to understand the culture. On my way home I felt a great sense of peace like my spirit was happy it was dancing and was no longer running alone but with my native descendents. I felt content in that moment but I avoided it from continuing because I wasn't sure it was what God wanted because of how I had been raised with other beliefs about God. I had been believing that the church was the true way for so long that I was confused about the wonderful feeling I experienced. I was afraid that what the native culture did was not right.

It was made clearer to me from reading your book. I feel I can enjoy where I come from and I always knew I was Native for some reason in Gods plan but had been confused about the religion side of things even though when I would hear pow-wow music, I felt a sense of belonging. Anyways, I loved your book. You are truly blessed and I can't wait to meet you on earth or in spirit form, God bless!


Hello Betty,

I saw your homepage and I'm glad that there is now a way to contact you. I read your book when I was a teenager, about 18 years ago. I'm from Germany and I guess the original title is "Embraced By The Light."

I really thought a lot of death. I lost my dad when I was 11 years-old and I'm afraid of dying. So I found your book. I just wanted to say thank you for the hope you gave to me. I'm not sure if I can believe, but your book was written so wonderfully and I hope that life will go on when we die.

Thank you for this wonderful book, a few years ago I bought one for my aunt, too and she liked it :-)

Have a nice day,

Hi Betty,

I have contacted you before and you were very gracious to me. I simply wanted to thank you for doing your podcast. I stumbled across it recently and really love listening to you and hope you continue! Thanks for everything you do. You really are a wonderful help to many people!



I read your book when I was seventeen. I was really sick and bedridden and someone gave me Embraced. I took a week and read it. It changed my life. I had been raised as a Christian, but was going through a time of great darkness. I was being bullied at school, home life was rough and true friends were scarce. I had been thinking of suicide as an option....that was 19 years ago. When the struggles of life threaten to overwhelm I have often gone back to Embraced along with my Bible...to help pull myself out of darkness. Thank you Betty. I have bought many copies of Embraced and given them as presents. I'm sure that your light and God's light have touched many more lives than you even know of. Perhaps you have reached the billions yet. :) I'm sure you will and then some. Keep up the great work!

Dear Betty,

My name is Mina. I came from Japan and it's been almost thirty years in United State. My background was kind of Buddhist. But I did not know anything about God. Most Japanese people have no religious at all. When I met my husband Armand here, he introduced about Christianity. I married with him and same time I had baptized as Christian that was twenty three years ago.

The reason I became interesting to be Christian because of the life after death. When I was in Japan I've never heard it and no one talked about. My husband has been a pastor for twenty years. The means that my life and environment has been always somehow connecting God's work and helping people.

One day about ten years ago he bought your book and suggested me to read it. I tried it but my English level and also my spiritual level were not good enough to understand yet. So I put your book in my bookshelf. Most time I was reading books are Japanese translated books. That's the way more easy for me to understand.

Well, couple weeks ago, all of sudden I remembered your book exist and I wanted to read it again. Because I was struggling to help Japanese friends in Japan. They are not easy to understand unseen world or Spiritual world. I was looking for the book I could recommend for them to read. When I read it again I thought this is it! This time I understood much better than first time. Could be my English level and spiritual level are increased ever before.

Anyway your near death experience were incredible. I want all my friends and family in Japan read your book and to have knowledge about the life after death. But they can't read English so my question is to exist Japanese translated book? I was researching in Japanese site but I could not find it. I might be wrong so please let me know.

Your book gives the direction we live for and nothing else important but love. While I was reading it again, my tears came out often that was not sad, yes that was joy! Thank you so much to write such a valuable book!!

Your sister in Christ,

Hi Betty.

I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for Embraced By The Light. My wife and I live in an isolated Inuit community in the Canadian Arctic. My wife was visiting with our oldest daughter back home to help her with her new 2nd child. During these weeks of being apart, I was able to express my emotions more freely (it's a man thing). Also during this time, a co-worker lent me a copy of Embraced By The Light. I was immediately captivated. I was really amazed at how you were able to express complex spiritual matters in simple human terms. And the things that you revealed confirmed what I already believed, but just could never explain or understand. There was several moments where I stopped in awe and said to myself, "God is talking directly to me."

I think that my co-worker was sent to me as a Helper and you are an instrument. I have ordered several copies online - 1 for my personal library and a few to lend or give to friends. This is the second time in my life that I have had a profound spiritual experience. The first was about 25 years ago when a friend invited some friends to see The Prodigal. I did not know what to do or how to respond, and I did not understand my feelings at that time as it was my first experience. But I am more mature and much better prepared now. I am certain that the Lord is preparing me for something great.

You need not reply to this. I just wanted to say Thank You for writing Embraced By The Light and sharing your personal experience so candidly.

Best regards,

My dearest Betty

Hi. I am a 34 years old Muslim woman. I am a general physician and I have an office in a small city (20000 people). As a matter of fact I am an unwanted child for my parents but full of love for them and my people! I think that I am one of who you don't know, but proudly I describe your books in my town.

2 years ago I want read my lessons and be a gynecologist but many several adventures refused me and I sadly decide had an office but after small time I read your beautiful books . Then I talk with my patients about you and your nice adventure.

Gradually I saw: I am one of your hands in the world, my GOD wants me to help you. My dear BETTY believe now I am crying because of many miracle in my life and GREAT AMOUNT OF LOVE OF GOD. I love you and will help you. GOD bless you.

Hello Betty,

I pray all is well with you. I sent you a question about a year ago after my 14 yr-old son passed away in his sleep. I asked how we go on when we loose someone we love so much. Thanks so much for taking the time to address that on your site. You will never know until we get to heaven just how much you helped my shattered heart. I had read a few of your books, long before my son's death ( I have a hard time writing "death" because to me, he's not dead), nevertheless, nothing could prepare me for the horrible pain, and lose I felt. There were no words anyone could say to lessen my hurt, but it sure helped to have someone with a little knowledge of the afterlife to give this mother's heart a little comfort. Honestly it's still not easy, but I'm still going and growing little everyday, with the hope of seeing my son again when I've finished my assignment here. Thank so much Betty, you've been a God send.

Dear Betty,

I often come to the library just to access your website. Your stories and messages are so beautiful and filled with love that I feel healed and strengthened afterwards. I believe it was an answer to my prayers for solace during a difficult challenge my son and I are going through.

As well, your books, Embraced and The Awakening Heart have also helped so much. I have read those years ago and was motivated to reread some. The story about the releasing of the eagle always touches my heart.

Thanks so much for sharing your love and wisdom. May all of it return to you multiplied.

Much love,

My dearest Betty:

Thank you for reminding me of our individual divine purpose to the greater "Purpose" at hand. I smiled inside as I read your current W.A.V.E.S newsletter. As I grow in the knowledge and understanding of our purpose (mine and my daughter's), I am amazed at Jesus' and the Scholar's timing. There was a very special and personal message to me in this newsletter and so much was answered for me. Whether you were cognitively aware of it or not, your soul spoke directly to me, as was meant to be. I also know Jesus had a great hand in this!

My daughter and I live in between the physical and spiritual realm now, as we are being prepared for the greater work at hand. It is so comforting to know that we have you out there, paving the way.

Thank you for all you have done and are doing for the greater Purpose.

With much more love than I could ever express in words....
