Both meditation and near-death experiences have been with humanity since time immemorial. The fact that they recur so often indicates their importance and urgency. Despite the vast diversity of near-death experiencers, their expressions hold surprisingly common themes. Opening to the Light relates these messages. They speak of our intrinsic worth, and our place in the world and eternity. They invite us to become more deeply aware of our inner Light and abilities.
Chosen to correlate with the number of weeks in a year, there are fifty-two messages offered for reflection in this book. Bringing them into a period of meditation and working to incorporate their affirmations during each week of the year can help to empower you; to open and deepen your relationship with the Light.
The same power near-death experiencers encounter is within meditation. Contemplation can trigger an experience equal to that of a near-death experience. While you cannot prepare to have a near-death experience, you can prepare to have a transforming meditation, which this book is designed to help you achieve.
The preparation is simple: find yourself a quiet area, proceed to it regularly, taking with you anything that reminds you of the sacred; then relax and notice your breath; gradually allow yourself to sense the peace and love of the Divine Light.
Sincerity, enthusiasm, and perseverance are keys to successful meditations. When meditation and messages from near-death experiencers are combined, the results can be particularly rewarding.
Mellon-Thomas Benedict, a near-death experiencer quoted in this book, was told by the Light: "Drink from the river of Light to your heart's content!"
That invitation is for everyone! No matter where you may be in your life's journey, this book offers 52 messages to absorb and ponder in seeking that which the source of life reveals freely to each of us.
"In time, we become what we love and what inspires us."
