A Light In The Darkness

A Light in the Darkness is the true story of my personal journey from Darkness into Light— from being a lonely, struggling single mother with a history of abuse—to being awakened into a different consciousness of not only myself but also the world around me. After years of journal writing, at the very darkest time of my life, I suddenly made a connection to a wellspring of inner guidance and wisdom I can only call Divine.

A True Story

A Light In The Darkness is the true story of my personal journey from Darkness into Light— from being a lonely, struggling single mother with a history of abuse—to being awakened into a different consciousness of not only myself but also the world around me. Writing had always been my path, and after years of journal writing, at the very darkest time of my life, I suddenly made a connection to a wellspring of inner guidance and wisdom I can only call Divine. It was as if a Light was turned on, and I was shown that within my pain and fear, my most essential self was waiting to reveal the true meaning and purpose of my existence. I suddenly understood that everything I had considered my flaws and failures was the raw material of my evolutionary process— like the wood we put into the fire to create heat and light. It was all to be accepted and transformed, and I was shown how to begin that process. I was not rescued from anything lying in my path, but even so, I was changed forever. I was set on a road — the Road Home. I believe we all have that road within us waiting to be revealed in our own individual way.

On December 10, 1994, I had a remarkable experience. I was in therapy, deep in the darkness of terrible memories from childhood. I was as far from any sense of the Divine as I would have thought possible when suddenly a delicate, rhythmic, otherworldly vibration of light began to pulsate in my forehead. Love and life-giving energy vibrated down my throat and into my heart. Golden light filled me. Then the vibration enveloped me from the outside, rippling in huge waves around my entire body. I heard this message, “There is a God. This is God and this is how you know God.” The same voice said, “Surrender totally. Surrender everything– your pain, your preconceptions of how things should be and what should happen. Surrender your life. Give it to God.” Golden light shone down from a point inside the top of my head. Then “This is how you find happiness. This is the Way. In this moment, it is golden and completely unobstructed. You will carve the Way out of the stones and dirt of real-life experience. It will not always look golden but remember this.”

An Answer to Prayer

 

Although I had prayed for God’s help, I was totally unprepared to have that prayer answered. On that day, my personal journey unexpectedly became the doorway into another realm. Three months later this voice returned and wrote through my hand as I was writing in my journal. All I had to do was ask a question and Divine Source would be there immediately with answers that blew open my “educated” East Coast mind and the limited pictures of “healing” I had hoped to achieve. I was told what the Soul purpose is behind all our struggles, and how we can participate in the evolution of consciousness for ourselves and all others through the transformation of the exact challenges we face. God’s Light did not rescue me from anything lying in my path, but I had new resources to deal with the life I was living.

I understood that our whole purpose for being here is to uncover Love within ourselves and radiate it out to all beings, each of us according to our own path and guidance.

 

Chakras, Meditations, and Our Divine Purpose

 

In the process, an amazing depth and breadth of information was shared with me. I was shown the laws that govern our ego consciousness. I was told about the different energies held in the chakras and how to discover one’s soul path through an understanding of the chakras. I was told about the soul of the earth and earth chakras. I was given specific meditations to convert ego energy into illuminated soul energy.

The heart of my book is this— the Divine wants to manifest in relationship to us all. It has a Wisdom it wants to share with human beings help us find our way Home. My greatest wish is that through these pages, the Divine Love that was given so freely to me will vibrate in your heart and light your way.
