Almost a year ago I started a new job and one of the first customers that I had got to talking with me about spiritual things. A couple weeks later she stopped by and left me a copy of At Peace in the Light by Dannion Brinkley. In hind sight, it is really funny how and when this all came to fruition at just the right time in my life.
A Connecting Story
For a long time in my life I felt like I had super powers of some sort just waiting to burst out of me. I would sometimes think that it would be nice if I got struck by lightning and that would release what was welled up inside of me. I never thought that this might have actually happened to someone or what other consequences there would be…
Dannion shares his story of how he was a normal guy up until he was on the phone one day during a storm and lightning struck. He actually died that day and had a Near Death Experience or NDE. It was not his time to go, so he came back with a plan that he needed to complete.
As I read on I was very emotionally attached due to the similarity of my desires and what had actually happened to Dannion. Not only could I see myself in his shoes, but I could feel the pain that he lived through after his accident.
A Precious Gift
It wasn’t terribly long after Dannion began his recovery process that he realized that something had changed. He could hear what people were thinking around him as if they were talking to him. People that were comforting him with their words, but in their minds were terrified by what they saw.
The book takes you through his journey of learning about his gift and how to use it properly in his life. It also goes over a plan for a healing center that he was guided to build by entities from the other side. Lastly, Dannion explains how he found a purpose for himself in volunteering at hospice centers to help those that were getting ready to pass on.
Getting this gift all at once so quickly was a bit overwhelming for him and at first there were some misuses of it as well. Dannion began to help people when it came to betting and making money, he needed some funds himself but also enjoyed the “friendships” that he had. However, he would soon realize the dangers of what he was doing and how it was not the right path to walk.
You are taken along on a journey from where a man receives a tremendous gift, to learning how to use it, to learning when to use it, to helping him achieve a purpose in life of helping others. Overall, it was an amazing journey and one that I think we will all be able to connect with as we flip through the pages, I know I did!
Consistent with My Research
When it comes to psychic powers many people will write it off immediately as a hoax or just plain fantasy. However, in Dannion’s case there are many consistencies with other well documented NDEs. On top of that, his experience on the other side is fairly common with other stories that deal with that subject.
Dannion also takes time in this book to describe the healing centers that he was instructed to design and build. This again is consistent with many things in the spiritual realm and healing goes. I have done a lot of research on how Past Life Regression has a healing effect on people and a lot of his process mirrors that same structure.
For anyone that is on a spiritual journey in their life or for those that have lost or are losing loved ones, I would highly recommend this book. Watching Dannion progress through the “Hero’s Journey” in this book will help provide a lot of great perspective.
I believe the book is extremely helpful in pointing out the dangers of receiving a gift and how it can be misused. At the same time though it also helps relieve a fear of death in knowing that there is something afterwards to look forward too.
If you are looking to expand your perspective on psychic powers, life after death, Near Death Experiences, Healing, and so much more, than this is the book for you. Get it, sit back and allow yourself to connect to the material inside and I am willing to bet that you will be very thankful that you did.
If you would like to add this book to your personal library you can purchase it through Amazon and help support this site here: At Peace in the Light by Dannion Brinkley.
I would like to pass along my thanks to my customer, Lou, that was so nice as to gift this book to me. The connections that I had with the book were very special to me and it has certainly helped me on my journey. I am looking forward to the next time that we get to talk!
