I read your book (Embraced by the light five years ago). My mother had just died, she had been very sick for a very long time. She used to ask me about little children that used to play by her bed. I know now that they were angels helping her to accept her going on to her new life. I thank you sincerely for taking the time to write your experiences down, for others to read and enjoy. May God bless you always.
Dear Betty, I would like to thankyou for your sharing your experiences in your books. I first found out about embraced by the light on the Oprah Winfrey show. It came at a very low time in my life. I had lost my beautiful brother from a drug overdose, it devistated me as he was the third member of my family to die. After I read your book it made me feel so much better about things. My daughter is now reading your book and I hope she enjoys it and it inspires her as much as it did for me. I have also read The awakening heart and enjoyed that as well. I will be now looking for a copy of your new book. I thankyou again and want you to know that the help and healing I recieved from your books has increased my existing faith and has opened my heart to give love, and to learn the importance of forgiveness. Sending you love and light. Helen.
Dear Betty, I am a 33 year old woman and I've never been married. I have spent a majority of fifteen years wondering why God has not sent Prince Charming to me. When I'd reached the age of 31,I'd decided that I'd had enough so I enrolled myself in continuing education classes at a local college. I've discovered that I have a knack for the mass communications industry and I love to pursue the truth within it (I tend to anger a lot of people by seeking truth, isn't that funny?) My point is that I know now, by reading your books, that God has a much different purpose for me than to be a wife and mother. I can honestly say that I don't think I would be very happy to be traditionally domesticated. I know God knows that about me better than I know that about me. I want to thank you for publishing what you saw because I feel so free as a spirit to pursue my education (I'm ultimately striving for a Ph.D). I feel so hungry to explore this world and this way of thinking that we've created!!! Please make more appearances around Chicago. If you ever suffer stage fright, just take a deep breath and remind yourself of how boring life would be if you stopped walking out on to that stage!
I love the wonderful message you bring about. I no longer have any fear of death. Thank you for spreading the LOVE! Tim
Dear Betty and friends,I have felt compelled to contact you for a very long time. I read Embrassed by the Light about 4 or 5 years ago. It brought great relief to me during troubled times. It also gave me a profound sense of security knowing that the many feelings I had about God were not so crazy. Seven months ago my very best friend passed away after an extended illness. I am still grieving very hard for him. I have since read your other 2 books,and they have given me much comfort. Even though the sadness remains I have no doubts that I will see him again one day. I asked God one night in my prayers to please allow me to see my friend one more time so that I may have some comfort in knowing he was still with me. I couple of nights later I briefly saw him in my dream, he was smiling. I knew for sure then that God does care about me. I know that God has a great plan for me, he is surely awakening knowledges within me. Please-If anyone out there cares to hear of these knowledges I would love to share them and learn of experiences from you. We LOVE you Betty. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us. xxooxoxoxxxooo
I have read all 3 of your books a few times and now had the privelege of reading My soul's Remembrance. I just want to tell believers out there that it is an absolute MUST to read it. I find it difficult to put into words but when you read it, it is as if you just know that this is what you have always known. After your books, Betty, this was just a natural path to follow and we all thank you for publishing it. Keep on changing lives - you certainly helped to change mine. LOVE!!
"Mommy. What 'dat lady doin'?" no more than an hour or 2 ago my 2 1/2 year old daughter, Sarahbeth, asked me that question about the cover photo of you on "The Awakening Heart". I didn't realize until at that moment that I had been staring at your smilling face for at least 15 minuits. To a small child , 15 minuits of my time is an eternity. I won't go into all details, but as she asked me that question, I saw a giant of a picture of more detail than I can possibly go into of EXACTLY how your wave started and how it arrived at my doorstep. Your verification of my souls intuition was part of my plan from heaven. I have always been waiting in excitement for it to start. I have always felt like I was waiting for my name to be called for some type of (Spiritual Audition). MY SOUL REMEMBERS!! As my little girl asked that simple question, it was as if I were (very gently) "jarred" with some easily understood "rememberances". Finishing all three books and hearing her question was my name being called for my (auditioning lines). I've not got on "stage" yet. It is unknown to me how long in earth time it will be before I'm "Doing my dance". But at this moment, I'm putting on my "make-up" spiritually, and you and others back stage are helping me set up my props. It doesn't matter to me how huge or small my show is. What matters is that I can relax now while I wait and Know that God has given me exactly what I need,AND YOU TURNED ON THE "SPEAKER" THRU WHICH HE CALLED MY NAME. And I am "backstage" helping with your auditions and we are "backstage" for others,AND THOSE PEOPLE ARE "BACKSTAGE" FOR US. Just like a big circle the help is circulating from all of us, thru all of us again. I was still sitting on my couch, unaware at this moment that my little girl had been repeating the question to me over and over. Thinking I might not have heard her the first time. "Mommy. What 'dat lady doin'.?!" "She's smiling" was my reply.
For 7years you have led me. I know that you are a fragment of my faith. ThankYou
Osiyo. I wanted to tell you how much I loved "Embraced By the Light." I read it three times, and now have the urge to to read it again; it's been about three years since I read it last. I have your second book, and read about half. I think I'll try to finsh it soon. I just learned about your third book from your sight, and plan on getting it as soon as possible. I also want to get Roy Mills' book about his rememberance of his life before birth, and his mission here on earth. Thank you so much for your web site. I need to come here more often. -- Wado
I saw you speak in NY last night and it was very moving. I thought you and others might like to hear this little story: In 1992 my Grandmother, whom I was very close to, passed away. On the day of her wake, I was babysitting my 2 year old nephew, who had been told that “Grandma Markham” went to heaven. While we were in the back yard, he was playing and I was sitting on a chair smoking and sulking. He asked in his 2 year old speech “Framma Markham in heaven?” It really got to me. I replied “yes, she is” although, even having been raised Catholic and brought up in a very religious home, I was doubting my faith. When someone you loves dies, it’s very difficult and I was thinking very skeptically. I silently prayed to God. I said that I loved my Grandmother so much but that my faith was waning. I asked that God please send me a sign that she was in his care. Then I thought even to ask for the specific sign that I wanted: a butterfly to come into the yard, a sign of renewal and a new life. I had not consciously remembered having seen a butterfly in years, so I felt that if I did see one, it would certainly be a concrete sign. After a few minutes I was astonished to see a small butterfly enter the yard. Upon close inspection, I noticed it was a small moth. I mentally talked to God again and said “No offense God, but my Grandmother deserves better than a moth.” Within two minutes a big, beautiful butterfly entered the yard! It was dark, shiny brown with bright yellow spots. I was SPEECHLESS. Tears immediately welled up as I just could not believe the answer to my prayers. What followed was consoling and uncanny. While the big butterfly exited the yard, two small white butterflies entered. Unlike the brown one, these two stayed in the yard for ten minutes before coming over to where I was sitting. Chills started to traverse my spine as the two made a horizontal formation directly at my eye level in front of my face, about six inches away. They were perfectly parallel about five inches apart and remained stationary, facing me while fluttering their wings. Tears fell from my eyes. I could not have asked for a more trenchant sign than that! I thanked God that he is taking care of her all these years. Your speech last night was very moving and it reminded me of this and my Grandmother. Thanks very much. And PEACE to all who are experiencing the pain of losing someone. They are not lost. They are living in the light. Love, Jim Todd formerly of Hasbrouck Heights New Jersey, in loving memory of my late Grandmother, Mary Markham
I have recently read all three of your books and they have had a profound impact on me. I look at people differently now and realize that each on of us is important and on their own spiritual journey. I have already passed your books on to my mother and a friend and plan to continue sharing this wonderful experience I have had. Thank you for your inspiration and I wish you continued succes on your life mission. I am discovering what mine is right now and have never felt so happy and at peace. Kind Regards Denise
Thank you for helping me hang in there through the hardest time in my life. My best friend was just killed in a car accident at 24 years old. I have had feelings of just not wanting to go on. Your book has made me realize how lucky I am to be on this earth, and that I will see him soon. Can't wait to meet you in person some day. I just know our paths will cross. Much Love!
I just read through some of your mail--no wonder you could never possibly answer it all--let alone READ it all! Nevertheless, I am sure it provides you with encouragement. I have read all 3 of your books, and have learned from each one. I have recommended you to so many people....but I do want to relate this one particular instance. It was about 5 years ago, and I had just read your first book a few months before. I received a phone call from a friend from church, telling me that a little girl, the age of my son, had been struck on her bicycle by a car and killed. It was such a shocking and tragic thing to happen. She was a lovely child, full of beauty and life. Her name is Lindsey, and of course a mother thinks, "it could have been my child." We had a wonderful celebration of her life in our church. I had briefly thought about giving her parents your book, but I thought it might be too soon. The next week, the thought continued, but I chose to ignore it. Then one day, your book was being discussed on "Oprah". I thought--yes I SHOULD give them your book. Again I ignored the feeling. But God wouldn't allow me to forget it. He kept telling me to do it NOW!!! It was the most amazing feeling--it was as if I was not being allowed to forget it! Finally, I said out loud, "ALL RIGHT, ALL READY! I'LL GO AND GET IT!!" I drove to the bookstore, just as it opened, purchased the book, and drove immediately to their house. All I could do was stammer out my story about God wanting them to have this book. They understood completely, and thanked me. I don't really know what they thought or if it helped, but that's not the important thing. The important thing is that they needed it, and I was to be the vehicle to supply that need. And so the ripples go on.... Hope to hear you in person some day. You are an awesome teacher!
Betty, I have read all 3 of your books, and want to tell you how thankful I am to you for sharing your incredible experience. I have found much comfort and reassurance in your message.
Hi Betty This is the first time I have ever written to an author, however your book has been very helpful for me, I have passed it on to many other people here in Canada. God bless.
Just finished reading Ripple Effect today and wanted to thank you for sharing and expanding upon your personal experience of meeting the Savior and of Heaven, as well as the ripple effect this is having on people all over the world. While I don't think I've had a NDE, I feel a personal familiarity with your experience and words, and am very grateful that you are able to put it into words so eloquently and succently, and I feel that you are truly inspired by God to be able to touch as many people as you have. Keep up the work for there are many who need your guidance. God Bless and Keep you!
A stranger came into my life one day and we have become the best of friends. We talked about God and our beliefs in spirituality. He told me about your book and he felt I really needed to read it. I read it and first the first time in my life.....everything I felt deep within me made sense!! There were things you wrote about that I though I was the only one that felt or thought these things. I know know that I am blessed with many spirits around me...I always thought so but now I know they are with me and my son...as with us all. Thank you and for the insight and the courage to finally tell us about your experiences. You have changed my life and given me the strength to tell others as my "God sent" friend told me!! Say it LOUD and say it PROUD. Take care and God Bless !
I read & loved your book Embraced By the Light! & I am now reading Ripple Effect..Thank You So Much..
Thank you so much for opening your heart to us and sharing your experience. I know that you have finally put in words the things I knew but didn't realize were true. The ripples have reached the depths of my soul and have helped me on my journey to recover from Panic Disorder and an abusive childhood. I know now that I am truely 'Embraced by the Light' and share my destiny here with a bounty of beautiful souls. Thank you for helping me to realize this. Our creator is wise, you are here at the right time with the right message. Much love, Jacqueline Rhea.
I have read Embraced and the Awakening Heart more than once each. I find them very up-lifting. I was a born again christain for quite a few years and at this point I want nothing to do with any of it or any other religeon. I will also concede to being mad at Jesus too. However, I have spent all eve in your web-site and feel really reconnected to my love for Jesus. Ya know, I am only human and I had bible teacher actually spend her money to give a whole book written about how YOUR book Embraced is not biblically acceptable. I questined this teacher and all she could say is that its because you are a MORMON. Well WHAT-EVER.....I said do you really think jesus is gonna care if she is, and BY THE WAY?....WHATS WRONG WITH MORMONS. I am tired of christian's anti gay agenda and the untimate HATE it produces in the ignorance of people. I am tired of bibles going aroing in the hands of people who get a little censored fire and brimstone in them and think they actually have some really usefull knowledge when if fact they know so little. Worst of all is that one little quote " go out and teach all nations" and that gives christians the license to ultimatly bring people furthur from the lord. Of course many may disagree but I know I am not alone in my feelings. I'll tell you, and you may regret the effect your books have had on me, but one feeling I have now, is I have NO FEAR of GOD or having my own oppinin of things. I would say I am in NO-WAY a christian at this point and cringe when I hear them say that Jesus died to forgive thier sins. I sure hope not!!!....Do you really think that he had to die a brutal murder just to get rotten people to soften their hearts and believe in some good sound teaching for living. Did he really have to die for that? I'll tell you he did'nt have to die for me to get the point and I have had the most frighteningly ignorant bible teachers make it seen like that is what opened the pearly gates for us. And the argument about creation vs. evolution. Tell me? Does it really matter weather I most certainly do not believe much in the book of genesis. What difference does it make. Am I going to be tested on it when I die?... And last but not least.....if there really is a censored and I go .....how bad can it be?.......there will be NO CHRISTIANS there bothering me. I realize that this might make ME look ugly but guess what ?....in my experience my love of Jesus has had to be on Christianity's terms. Why? Oh and one more thing .....the next time I hear Dr. Laura make a reference to whats in the bible and about who goes to heaven and who doesnt because I have heard her go there......someone should tell her but HONEY....christians dont think YOU are going either......the good book does say " the only way to the father.....is through the son(JESUS)"
You touch people in many ways and for this I say Thanks to you and thanks to God.Your book touched the heart and soul of my Godchild Christin Cosby and you and your husbands visit to her web site meant so much to her family.I went to your Web site tonight and find that you honor Christin again with the sharing of her story of unselfish love. Thank you! May GOD continue to bless you for the work you do and continue to inspire you. Thanks, Bryant Delafield

Hello Betty. Your book has helped me a great deal! I read it at just the right time in my life. I would like to invite you to my "Dream Diary". God Bless.
Hi Betty, I do hope you read this. I just finished reading "Embraced By The Light" and was quite surprised at how closely your experience matches the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Everything from the Pre-existance (pre mortal life), intelligence, roles of men vs. women, the 12, other worlds... It truly is amazing to me. I have been a member for over 25 years and have been very curious and taken with life after death. As I read your book, I wondered if you had investigated or learned anything about the teachings of the LDS faith. If anything, they seem to compliment and even add to what you have learned through your experience. On the other hand, I have learned things or some things were made more clear by reading how you expressed or conveyed your thoughts. Granted we are limited by the limitations of words and language. I guess I would encourage you to seek, to investigate. Somewhere therein may lay the mission that you have yet to fulfill. Please let me know what you think. Geneaology and the work that goes on in our temples might be very interesting to you... On a personal note, I wish you and your large family warmth and love. I too come from a large family as does my wife and we are currently working on a large family of our own. Families are forever!!! Sincerely, Greg Baker
Betty; I read your book" Embraced by the Light" yesterday. I did so as my side of a bargain with another person. She is going to read a book of my choice "The Age of Reason" by Thomas Paine. I knew what to expect before I started reading as I have read a good deal of similar stuff. The book turned out to be even worse than I expected. Whether or not you are sincere I suppose I will never know. If you are then you are seriously self-deluded, the very worst kind of delusion. I am saddened but not surprised by the number of people in this supposedly enlightened country who can believe such transparent nonsense. David Nelson
Dear Betty,i'm not sure where to start .....but i guess i just did..... :) first i would like to thank you for embraced,and the awakening heart they have both bruoght me comfort and assurance that our heavenly father is a god of love. i've been having a hard time lately, usually i can put my finger on the problem but what do you do when you're not even sure of what's wrong? i've tried praying.(and i'll keep praying) but i feel like a "pen-light"....i've had my share of ups and downs i'm just trying to ride this one out. the road has not been easy.i grew up in a poligamist mormon family where we had to pretend that the other woman was just a friend(even within the family). there were many beatings, sexual abuse,and many things in the name of god.many people knew and just turned thier heads.... the state sent us home again and again.... there were many times i begged god to kill me, i even tried screaming at him. i always wondered (as a child) what i had done to make him abandone me.... when iwas 12 i was learning in school that what was happening to me at home was sex... and at church i was learning that girls who had sex before marriage were denied the greatest kingdom in heaven and so i believed that the only reason i was being allowed to continue living was to suffer for something i'd done to deserve the abuse. that summer i went to an amy grant concert and here was this woman singing about this love that i believed i could never have... i sank lower and lower into my seat hoping that the floor would swallow me untill i couldn't stand the pain any longer and whispered "how could you ever love me?" before i had finished speaking the words this feeling like warm honey poured out over my head and filled my body and i felt the words "you could never know how much" fill my heart. that was the begining of the fight for me. i have always felt that i had a special purpose here, even at a very young age. and i have seen many miracles in my life. and i have had many other people tell me that they felt i had important work to do here. i use to think that music would be the vehicle for that but now i'm not sure and there is so much that needs to be done that i don't know where to start nad i don't feel a "pull" in any one direction....i know that the father has led me here to georgia (from alaska) to find my soul mate (and the first stable person in my life). i don't know if it's the fear of being loved , having some one really know me....or if it's something else, but i feel like i'm standing still and i'm having a hard time being kind to myself or giving toward others and it really bothers me.... i feel lost... and this is way too long.... if you could just remember me in your prayers i would be very greatful..... love, ryan
God bless you Ms. Betty! I have to tell you that I wanted to buy your book Embraced by the Light when it first came out. I resisted after picking it up a 100 times. I don't know why I fought it for so long, But I'm glad that I stumbled on it again. I was in a bookstore searching for my spirit, and I was led back to this book. Thank you for giving me faith again when I needed it the most. No matter how hard my life seems at times, I "know" now that I'm living with it in this world to make my heavenly Father proud of me. I now look at life's hard knocks in a positive light. I know that what you are doing can get rough at times, but you help and touch so many lives! I've given everyone I know a copy of your books! Your message has helped me put together His message for me. Thank you again and may God continue to bless all of us with your words.
Hello Everybody! This is upcoming pop singer/songwriter/recording artist -- Christian Andreason. I had the great honor of having some of my writing printed in Betty's latest book and GIFT to this planet, "The Ripple Effect." Some of that writing can be found on pages 175 to 177. I can't tell you what an honor and a privilege it has been knowing and LOVING Betty J. Eadie! She is honestly one of the most WONDERFUL and inspiring human beings I have ever met! I have been so very blessed by the presence of her writings in my own life! In fact, every couple of weeks, I love to get out her books on AUDIO tape and play them while I work in the house or am traveling to performances in the car or on an airplane. I even play them while I am taking a break from recording my vocals in the studio! Betty's voice is just as moving, as her spirit led writing! I cannot recommend to you enough, the immense power of Betty J. Eadie's voice on tape! Let me tell you . . . It is certainly MUSIC to my ears! One of my favorite things, is to meet and talk to complete strangers who love Betty as much as I do! In fact, it is startling just how often this happens and just HOW many of us that do, are out there! Often times -- when I am doing a LIVE radio show promoting my latest record, I will talk to the callers during commercial break and we will talk about Betty and the impact her life story has made on the world. Recently, I talked to a sweet airline stewardess named Karen (during my whole trip on the plane) about Betty, I even spoke about Betty with a lovely young woman (with child) named Lemya. As Lemya leased me my new apartment, we discussed how she was greatly moved by reading Betty's book "Embraced By The Light" after the loss of her precious Mother. A dear friend of mine, fan and fellow www.MP3.com singer named Christine E has even started her own BETTY BOOK CLUB . . . A gathering, where everyone sits down and reads Betty's books together! Now, isn't that a great idea?!! What a FABULOUS LADY Betty J. Eadie is! And this WEBSITE . . . WOW! It is one of my absolute favorite haunts on the web! Stan, the webmaster, is just BRILLIANT in his way of presenting Betty's loving heart. Did you know, he is also one of the contributing writers on Betty's Full-length Music CD? It is a MUST in your music collection and happens to be one of MY all time favorites! I hope you guys reading this . . . will drop him a line to tell him what a great job he is doing! Also, I am in the middle of reading Onjinjinkta's latest release, by Roy Mills called, "Souls's Remembrance." I am really enjoying reading this book and applaud everyone at Betty's publishing company for their efforts in releasing it! My most sincere well wishes and blessings to everyone reading this and as Betty says . . . RIPPLE ON! And of course to Betty . . . I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU my W. N. Girl!!!! (xxxxoooxoxoxoxoxox!) Christian
Dear Betty: I have come to know your work from listening to art bell. I find your experiences truly incredible. I to have had some interesting experiences. I am a diabetic and I somtimes have what are called insulin reactions. I am 39 years old and have been having these since I was 23. The pervading feeling that I get when I am in this state is that everyone around me has the answer to life. I have come to the conclusion that we all do "that is our souls do" and this is not apparent in a normal state of mind. Alot of what you have written and spoken about has helped me cement these trancending occurences. I to am a christian and have been given a gift of seeing beyond the apparent. I also believe that all deja-vu is remembering a dream that we have had in the past. Many of my dreams have come true but not in any sort of grandiose fashion. It is usually something very plain and matter of fact. This leads me to believe that god has implanted a plan and a purpose into my life. When I have these insulin reactions I swear that I can see right through the people around me. I also believe that there is a welcoming commitee up there, and when you know what the answer is, you are dead. Very strange stuff from such a normal guy. Thanks: Jon Robbins
Please come to Arkansas! I have read all of your books and loved them all!
Dear Betty, My journey toward home if filled with all things human-we are all united in this way. I believe in God with all my heart and spirit. However, my husband does not. I feel this causes a gap between us that i cant close. i pray for God to reach him, but i realize that this is not my lesson - it is between michael and God. we have a 6 month old son. he is happy, healthy, and saturated in love and care. he is the closest thing to God i have ever known - he is an ange whose wings may decrease with age. how can our marriage last when the spiritual gap between us is so vast? i'm growing spiritually every minute-i couldnt stop growing if i tried. but, michael refuses to hear my thoughts and feelings that have anything to do with God. how can this last? our beautiful son is the glue-he chose us, but if we dont stay married, why? i pray for God to reach out and touch him. your books are magickal healing for the earth and for humankind. i always try to remember that WE ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS TRYING TO BE SPIRITUAL, WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS TRYING TO BE HUMAN!
Thank you so much for your books. I just finished the Ripple Effect last night. I have read all three of your books and while I was reading Ripple, the book you published by Roy Mills; A Soul's Remembrance. All four books Excellent!!! I have passed on Soul's Remembrance to over a dozen people by now, I feel that passionate about it. I am a slow reader and read it in about 4 hours, I just couldn't put it down. Ripple was longer, so I took it with me everywhere and read it spare minutes here and there. I am happy for your family getting better. It truly is a blessing. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I am glad God pointed me toward you and gave you this mission. I just cannot thank you enough for your words. Love Annie
Ms. Eadie, Your book, Embraced by the Light, is fabulous! My husband was admitted to the hospital, and was in critical condition. About four days afterwards, I received a message from God, through mental thoughts and meeting a certain lady, that he was with me and everything would be alright. But, with my little faith, that wasn't even enough for me. Only about two days later, I "just happened" to find your book in the library. I couldn't put it down, and brought it with me everyday to the CCU waiting room. I read that book and immediately went back and got your book, The Awakening Heart, and loved that book just as much! Now, only a few months later, I have now learned to cope with his hospitalization, and life in general, so much better. I don't WORRY about the future anymore, I am only CONCERNED. Between the message I received from God, and my reading your book, I have now turned my life over to God and look forward to the time that I meet him!!!! Thank you so much Ms. Eadie for giving me, and the world, this book. Please know that you are doing something wonderful for others, and showing the love of God through this book. Again, thank you for writing this book!!! rom
Dear Betty, I was strolling through a bookstore about six years ago... I remember your book was there, but it was out of its place, so it caught my eye because so. In the midst of all these huge tall books, there was your "Embraced" and unlike the other books lined up where you could only see the title, yours was full view. I was intrigued. After passing by it a few times, I finally picked it up-- and I kid you not, I literally felt something like electricity run through me, or maybe like a shower on the inside, what a feeling! So, I started reading it and was in utter shock. I never ever heard of a NDE up until that day. It really shook me up because it was then it occured to me that that is what I must of had in 1989. I had tried to commit suicide, ended up in a coma and on life support because someone happened to find me and rush me off to the hospital instead. The doctors gave me little to no chance of ever coming out of the coma, but here I am today. Although I didn't go down a tunnel or anything to that effect, I did hear a voice and I was surrounded by thousands upon thousands of diamond like objects- each with a rainbow inside of them. (A incredibly beautiful sight!) Plus, I was completely engulfed with the most POWERFUL UNCONDITIONAL LOVE I have ever felt in my whole lifetime! The voice told me very clearly: "I HAVE GIVEN YOU YOUR LIFE BACK TO YOU, THIS IS MY GIFT TO YOU, GO FORWARD AND LIVE YOUR LIFE TO ITS FULLEST." I am ever grateful for your work, and your books- I truly believe your book touched me, literally and spiritually. After that experience in the bookstore, I realized that what I heard that fateful day was not just a figment of my imagination, and maybe I should share it with others. My life has changed dramatically since, and I thank you very much for your work in Love. Thank you very much, your a very blessed person!
Dear Betty, Although i have not yet read your book i have seen it in stores like sell peace of mond and insense. This site was a good thing. Whether or not you are profiting from it it is pointless as it gives us all a chance to express ourselves and encourage each other and most of all connect from one point of the world to the other. As you may or may not know your life touches so many others.
Betty, I've loved your books since I first read "Embraced by the Light" several years ago! You've had such an impact on my life. You are an inspiration to millions! Bless you.
I like your book very much!
loved your book!!!!! =>
Hello! When I first read your book in elementary, i enjoyed it very well. Still, i am working now and i still enjoy reading it again and again. That is how fun it is!
Dear Ms. Betty, Hi! Im a seventh-grader student from the Philippines and we were supposed to have our last book report for this last semester and we were given the chance to choose our own book. I already heard a lot of praises about your book, Embraced by the light so I chose it. I just finished reading it and I am excited to make a book report about it. I think your book is really wonderful and inspirational. And it was also nice to know that most of my batchmates also chose your book as their book report. Thanks again Ms., and may you continue to write more inspirational stories!
Dear Ms. Betty, im a student from d philippines and we were supposed to have our last book report and we were given the oppurtunity to choose our own book. i heard that embraced by the light is really a good book, so i chose it. it is very inspiring and very exciting. and know what? most of my classmates also chose your book as their book report! we think think its awesome. thank you and hope we can read more books from you!
I belive the word to describe me is a clairvoyant. I see visions of future events and know of things that are going to happen. I have kept some records of these things but they seem to be coming more frequently. I have known many truths about God and his nature since is was young. My best friend says I'm going to be deceived by the devil. I have traveled out of my body into the future and have been at an accident sight twenty-four hours before it actually happened. Sometines I just know, other times I see things and sometimes I can pick up an object and get information form it. This is who I am and I need some direction is using my gift. What can you tell me about these things. I have read all of your books. My children gave me The Ripple Effect for Christmas. I believe that gifts will follow the belivers of Christ but I need to know what to do. Is it just for me or do I share with others? Your books have helped my children understand the things I have been trying to teach them. I thank you for that.
I missed seeing you San Diego, CA this year. Hopefully next time around I will be available next time you come to our town. Your books and shows are so inspirational and I love it when God works through people like you. He is so wonderful to us even in times that are not so happy. He just keeps on enlightening me and showing me the way....when I listen. Keep up the great work. M
Dear Betty, I truly enjoyed reading Embraced by the Light. Your book was inspiration and gave a new meaning to life. I have given your book as a gift to many of my friends. Thanks for sharing your experience with us and letting the world know that we all need to love one another. May God continue to bless you.
I hate reading!! I saw you on television and just had to read your book. I was pregnant with my first child at the time. I read it aloud to him. I know that he is my Angel sent from Heaven. Thank You for sharing your story with us. I loaned to book to my sister-in-law when she was pregnant and never got it back. I have been looking for another one since, I am planning to read it to both my boys now. Nickie McGowen
I bought Embraced by the Light years ago at the LDS Church Atlanta Temple Bookstore. It moved me so much I just carried it around with me and referred to it several times during each day. Recently I took a college philosophy class, and one of the related subjects we studied was near death experiences. We watched a video that included an interview with George, the Russian guy you told about in "The Awakening Heart." That class opened up an arena for me of spiritual depth I didn't know existed. I just recently read "The Awakening Heart" for the first time, and once again, I was astonished at the familiarity of the messages therein. I feel certain of your role as a wise woman for this dipensation, and that many others will mature into their callings in time. Like you said that you don't really know your purpose in this, I don't know mine. But your example gives me a measure of hope and an acknowledgement that excellent things are being worked for the benefit of mankind, visibly, and spiritually, behind the scenes.
Dear Betty, You should be very proud of yourself. By your responses, you have changed the lives of many people in this world of what seems to be evil. You have changed my outlook on life and by your teachings you are making my life a better and more happier life to live. I am beginning to look at the bright side of more things and look at the negatives as a learning experience for future events to come. I thank you for this. God bless you.
Betty, I am so angry with God. One day you have a little joy and the next you are flat on your back again. I envy you. I'm flying on instruments that don't seem to work very well at best. Does God make mistakes?
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Eadie in San Francisco and asked her to sign my Embraced By The Light as well as sign The Ripple Effect for my friend. I read Ripple in a few days to give it to my friend at our meeting place. She was visiting from out of town. I loved Ripple and it was so wonderful to meet the wonderful author.
You are truly a beautiful person and have touched my life in so many ways. I am one who belives in god but had and didnt belive in faith. I was so wrong! I belive since the reading of your book(s). I tell everyone about this book and use "Embraced" as a manual as hope e.t.c. " Hope to see you in Tucson/Phoenix"????
Thank you for sharing your insights and experience. I would hope to speak with you someday.
Hi Betty, I just met you this december in Houston at a book signing for the ripple effect. I have recently e-mailed you to update you on what has happened since. You are truly an instrument of GOD and I feel truly blessed, not only to have met you but to have had the privilidge of speaking with you and recieving advice from you as well. You couldn't have better planned the timing of our meeting. It just proves that there is no way we can improve on HIS timing for our lives. I hope and pray that someday I can return in some small way the gifts you have given me by your books, your presence, and your kind words of support and encouragement. I know that if I don't meet you again in this world that I will definately see you again and rejoice in reuniting with a good old friend. May God always be with you and your loved ones and bless you for you unending faith and devotion to his love for the world. Take care of yourself, the world needs you. I love you as God loves you, Paula
Hi Betty! I lost my daughter 3 1/2 years ago. She was 22 years old and my only child. She died in a very tragic and senseless accident. The first 2 years were unbearable for me, (I thought I would never survive) but God helped me through these most difficult times. I had many mystical experiences that proved to me that there is a God and that he loves me. I would like to write a book about these experiences some day. I got closer to my mother in the last few years, and just recently she was diagnosed with cancer. She is now following chimo treatments which are very hard on her (she's 80 years) It grieves me so to see her have to go through all of this. Betty would you please pray for her (her name is Gabrielle). I pray to God constantly, and ask that he heal her if it is his will! I have read your books, and plan to buy "The Ripple Effect" soon. Thank you for these, they have helped me through the most difficult times in my life. I often re-read "Embrased by the Light" and have passed on to my mother and sisters. I hope to come to Canada again, my mother and I saw you in Toronto 2 years ago. God bless you!
Dear Betty, While I was reading your most recent book, I noticed you had a web page. I have wanted to write you these many years since I first read, Embraced, but words don't seem to be able to express my thoughts or feelings properly. Embraced caused a turning point in me. You've confirmed all my beliefs about God, plus given me some wonderful visions of what is waiting there. Surely, part of my calling is sharing your books with others. Currently, those having lost someone in death have come to me for answers and I give them your words. It's always great comfort for them, and also, for people who believe they are worthless, and God doesn't love them. I am a drug counselor at a long-term residential treatment center for women with children. So, I cross many paths of those who think they are unfit for God. You can't imagine, or I guess you can, how very much you have helped them, and me, by being the messenger. I try to live the beliefs I have that you confirmed in Embraced and I have grown ever more close to God in the process. You are truly blessed and a blessing of enormous proportions. I know that I must know you from before, we'll see when we get back there:) Either way - I love you. Thank you. Jan
Hi Betty, I have read all three of your books, am actually finishing up the last one. Which I ordered off your website. I feel like I know you and pray someday we meet in person, or in the spirit world. I know we will meet somewhere. I had written to you about 3 years ago. I asked you to pray for me to hear from my daughter I gave up for adoption in 1986. Well I started to hear from her in 1998 and we are writing now off and on through the adoption agency. And I love it. Now will you pray that we meet in person when the time is right. I am really scared. I'm 31. She is 13. I have two other boys who are so very excited about meeting there sister. I am going to try to write on a regular basis. I feel your prayers work wonders. I pray for you daily also. In christ love Tina
Dearest Betty, Thank-you so much for what you have shared and because of this you have not only touched and changed my life but you have touched and changed the lives of so many...as part of your Embraced family I love you with all my heart... With much love, Cindy aka Willow
Dear Betty: Thank you for the best book I've ever read (EBTL). I read it about a year ago and since then I have given it as a gift to many people. It truly restored my faith in the one God and made me realize I was correct in thinking I am here on Earth for a reason. I've had several near-death experiences and always felt God was watching over me for a special purpose. And your book convinced me of it. Thank you for sharing. I will continue to give your book as a gift to my friends because it's the most comforting literature I've ever read. I can't wait to read The Ripple Effect. :)
Betty , Remember me to the Savior. Grant peace & ease the despair. My faith is so lacking & after all I've been through, I'm still here. Show me the way ! Love Tom
Thank you for choosing to come back and share (remind us of) God's will. I will keep you in my prayers for continued strength as Jesus's message of LOVE and FORGIVENESS continues to be realized in the world!!
I first read EBTL a few years ago and immediately went back to the bookstore for TAH. I had been searching for the new book, The Ripple Effect, for over a year and kept wondering when it would be out. Finally, I got it and after finishing it I realized why it took so long for you to get the book finished. I am so happy that everything worked out well for you and your family. Thank all of them for sharing so much of you with the rest of the world. And thanks to you for bringing all of us closer to God. Bless you, Debbie
finding the book "embraced by the light " a very enlightening and warming look at life after death, I now have less fear or even no fear of dying, and look forward to making my transition when the time comes.
Dear Betty thank you for giving me the God that I always prayed for. I too grew up Catholic and always had more of a fear of God than a love for him. The peace I now feel is so wonderful and I have no more doubts about what I have to look forward to when I go home. I am so grateful that my children never have to fear God and that I can teach them the real truth of why we are here and why we have to go through certain experiences in our life. Thank you for telling your beautiful story and I pray that will have more to add in the future. I hope you will be back in Ohio soon. I just missed you and I was really bummed. Love Beth
Dear Betty, There are barely enough words to tell you what you and your books mean to me. My mother passed over in 1992 from lung cancer. It was the worst thing I ever experienced to watch her suffer. She was my best friend and the kindest most loving person I've ever known. My parents divorced when I was 10 years old and I never saw my father again. My mother raised my sister and me alone but with great love. I could never have imagined my life without her in it. When she died, I died too. I was plunged into a black hole of grief and despair for 2 years. One day, as I was sitting alone in my house, I felt a sudden urge to turn on the TV. I turned to Oprah, and there you were on her show talking about your book, "Embraced By The Light". As I listened to you and the things you were saying, I started to cry. I quickly wrote down your name and the name of the book. The next day I went to a store, bought the book and read it in one night. I was literally transformed. My depression lifted and I saw God's purpose to my mother's suffering and death. I was so angry at myself for not having been at the hospital the moment she died, but after reading your book, I realized that was the way it was supposed to be. I had several dreams about my mother over the next few weeks. Dreams that she was happy and in peace and wanted me to move on with my life. I have certainly done that - and more. I have read "Embraced" numerous times since then, as well as "The Awakening Heart" and currently am reading "The Ripple Effect". I try every day to show my love and God's love to everyone I meet. The truths contained in your books continue to astound me, and I feel I have grown so much spiritually in the last few years. I thank God everyday for the gifts he has given me, and that I will continue to be his instrument. I am a singer and an actress, and I believe that is my true mission on this earth. I know I make others happy with my work, and now I thank the Lord everyday for the graces he has bestowed on me. Don't get me wrong - life is not perfect. I struggle with financial difficulties and other things, but they are no longer the focus of my life. I pray for more opportunities to love and serve others. I know you will continue to be God's instrument on earth, and we are all blessed by your message from Him. God bless you and thank you.
My son called me and told me to get on the computer so he could give me a website - it was yours. He had heard you on a radio program while in bed and was so moved he got up and got on his knees to pray. God bless you for spreading the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I really enjoy visiting your site and your books are excellent. (My wife bought them but I managed to read them also...) If anyone needs a laugh or two, please visit my humor site. Thanks! :)
Dear Bettie - I just wanted to write and tell you that your book is still helping me grieve from my 26 yr old brother's death, and I feel him around me from time to time still, even though it has been almost 3 years. Your book also helped me through the deaths of others very close to me in my life, and since Billy's 'visits' to me, I no longer am afraid of death, or what happens to us when we die. That is the best thing that came out of all the crap I have been through in my life. Simply that I am not afraid to die, and I'm not afraid to live, either. Thanks.
Read Embraced and mailed you a personal letter on Feb. 1997. My daughter bought me an audio of Awakening, to which I have listened many times, and I am presently reading Ripple Effect. Still undergoing some of the trials I mentioned in 1997, but your writings have given me hope in the knowledge that God loves me and has a purpose for my being on earth. As a Native American (Navajo) I recognized many of the points revealed in the course of your NDE. Things such as the fact that there are no coincidences in our lives and the fact that there is a spirituality in all of God's creation - including the inanimate objects of the earth. In this light, I wanted to share the following with you and your audiance: "Look upon all lands as Indian lands, all people and all things upon them are in our care. Our ancient ceremonies and songs instruct us to be the Caretakers. To care for the land, so seven generations of our children and all things that adorn mother earth will live in balance, harmony and in the Beauty Way. - 'A Hopi Elder" My dear sister recently had an NDE and I am trying to pursuade her to record the experience so I can put it in writing. Keep Rippling!
I truely enjoy your books and can relate so well to them. You see before my mom died, within minutes I had a messenger visit me and inform me of the accident. I was then 17 yrs old. I am now 43 and for so long blamed myself for not stopping the car from pulling away from the house. I now understand there was reason for it and for the many things we have enter our lives. I have also had a visit from my dad since his recent death last Jan 99. He mentioned how heaven is and that he is no longer in pain. He died a painful death. So I thank you for also reassuring me of the many questions we have about life and death and our meaning for being here. I am an active and faithful Catholic and I know what it will be like now when I die and what I will see on the other side. I have had other reassurances as well and am now content. Thank You!
Hi Betty, I have read Embraced By The Light in December of 1998. My grandmother, who I had lived with all of my life, was in the hospital dying of Lung cancer. The hardest thing I ever had to do in my life was to watch her suffer. I felt a little selfish as I did not want her to leave me. While she was in the hospital, I read your book which helped me come to a better understanding. I was not afraid of her dying anymore because I knew she was going to a beautiful place. I have always believed in god but your book gave me the vision that she was going to be well taken care of. I miss her with all my heart and before she died, I told her how special she was and always will be in my heart. I just finished reading The Awakening Heart this evening and it was like a magnet, as soon as I had any free time, I was drawn to it until it was finished. I just can't seem to get enough. Thank god for great miracles.
Everything you wrote in your books is true. I knew this long before you wrote these books. I am so glad you wrote these books so others might know the truth about our LORD. I was taught from a small black book by our LORD and am still trying to remember it all. I know in time it will be revealed to me and then I can go home once again. Thank You for telling the world about unconditinal LOVE.
Dear Betty: My mother sent me your first book to read because she thought I would relate to your experience, because I nearly died myself at about age 12. Mine was not as in-depth as yours. I will always remember the loving voice I heard just before entering the tunnel, though, saying, "Don't worry, you're not going to die." The experience was so intense I couldn't (and still can't sometimes) talk about it without crying. Overwhelming feelings prevent me from clearly explaining what I experienced to others, but I know with all my heart that God is there with me always, and loves me very much. Your book was a great reminder, should I ever forget, how loving and powerful God is. Bless you. May you walk in the light and always be protected. You have given us all a great gift. Thank you. Peace be with you.
I read your book at a time when I needed guidance and strength. It was given to me by a wonderful lady who has studied native teachings and she felt we would be able to deal with the death of my granddaughter a little easier. She was right, I have read your first, on your second and will be picking up your third. Thank you for sharing your experiences with the rest of the world.
Thank you for reminding us how loving our God is.
Dear Betty, Thanks for your books. They inspired me to continue writing my own spiritual journey. On Dec. 15th I experienced another NDE. I woke up in the operating room at the end on surgery. I heard the doctor say she's stopped breathing. I could not breathe and it took them awhile to get me to suck in oxygen. I rember many things, the most important was the incredible feeling of peace and unconditional love. I didn't want to come back but knew I had to return to my 3 children and husband. Thanks for your books. love, Debby
I truly want to thank you for sharing your wisdom, insights and knowledge with the world. I thank God that he sent you here to share your knowledge of him with the rest of us who are so blind. I never realized how much my soul has been in the dark until I read your books. I am currently reading The Ripple Effect and love how much I am learning. I was also raised in a very abusive home as a child and have been trying to recover from the effects ever since. As a child I never had anyone to talk to about my fears and lonliness. I was an outcast and had very little friends and was severly teased by my peers. I come from a family of five siblings and we were each struggling for acceptance from my parents and hurt eachother in the process. I am tired of living in denial with my family and being an actor in our family drama and want so much to forgive my parents, to seperate them from their deeds. I want to love like Jesus calls us to do. I have crippling low self esteem and am trapped by my own negative self talk, wanting desperately to be freed. My parents are very reliqious and I was raised in a strict Catholic home often fearing God and my parents. I didn't know how God could possibly love me if my own parents didn't. When I read the section in your book about how souls turn from God in abusive families who were very religious and how it can take a lifetime to return to him, I was stunned and know that is me hanging on to my internal demons not letting Gods light shine through. I have such a hard time opening my heart up fully during prayer because of my fears. So many times I have prayed and maybe my prayers are too selfish, but like many of those who wrote to you I feel darkness even after praying. My life does seem repitious and lonely even though I am blessed with a supporting husband and two beautiful young children. I am trying to be the parent to my children that I never had, in reading your latest book it made me realize that maybe that is my mission in life. How I wish to know if I am on the right path. I sobbed in the section where you wrote that "a mother's love is the mirror to our souls. Without it, suffering can last a lifetime. The word "Momma" is often the last word whispered as the departing one slips from this realm". I cried because I never had a kind, loving, nurturing and comforting mother. If I don't have my mother in life then how would I have her in my death? For this my soul cried out in pure sorrow. Reading this prompted me to write a letter to my parents explaining my feelings and I don't know if I will ever send it even though a part of me really wants to. I want to do what is right to heal myself, without hurting them in the process. My husband is skeptical of your visions and doesn't believe the earth has a spirit. He says, "the earth is a rock, it can't have a spirit". I want so badly to be able to share your book with him and the joys I have recieved from your knowledge, but he gets frustrated with me and somewhat angry and distant. I have stopped going to church for over a year now feeling wounded by them like I am not worthy to share everlasting life unless I do this or behave this way and the list goes on. I have thought about changing religions and all, but am afraid of being wounded again by it. I wish I had a spiritual person to talk with. I can't imagine what it must be like to have your knowledge. I thought about what it would be like to spend even one day with you to talk and be comforted by you and personally feel your love for me. Thank you so very much for your books! Thanks for giving us the truth. I have a deep fondness and love for you. Take care and may god continue to bless your tremendous soul!!
You certainly have been busy inspiring people you little angel you!!! I have been trying to sit in on one of your lectures for a long time now while on the circut, but it seems that I am always needing to be somewhere else when you are speaking. Maybe this will be my lucky year and I can finally catch up with you. Untill then remember to laugh and play as hard as you work....(I have to keep reminding myself of this one constantly!!) Love and Laughter to you and your staff, Laura Lee Mistycah
Greetings- I obtained this writing in 1983.I wish I knew the author's name. After I read Embraced...I thought it might of been you (Ms.Eadie): "God has created me to do Him some definite service,He has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know what it is in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond connection between persons. He has not created me in naught. I shall do good- I shall do His work...whatever I am I can not be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him...He does nothing in vain. He knows what he is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make my feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me...still, He knows what He is about."
I read Embraced by the light which a friend gave to me. I cried so much, because it touched my heart deeply. My first husband had a fatal car crash, and I had some experiences afterwards that are seemingly unexplainable, but which I fully accept because I know my experiences were real, and Divine. These experiences made me conscious, and serve to maintain my awareness. I recently re-read Embraced, and I was able to receive even more from it the second time around, due to my continued spiritual awakening. I then purchased, The Awakening Heart, I loved it also. I am about to begin to read The Ripple Effect. It is important to share Love and Knowledge to everyone. Thank You Betty. God Bless, Sincerely, MaryAnn
I was told about this book, embraced by the light days after my daughters death. It came at a time when I was desperate for some kind of answers,comfort. I found it to be a life jacket as I was drowning in sorrow. I still have a lot of questions , the books are great and, I hope to be able to write to Betty for more insight.
I have read all your books, which I have really enjoyed.They sure really helped me since I lost my father not even a year ago. One of my girlfriends lent me your book in my difficult times,and after I read it I looked for more of your books. I have now purchased and read all of them.You have been a great inspiration to me. Thank you very much! When will you be publishing your next work?
I just finished reading The Ripple Effect, and read Embraced and the Awakening Heart a few years ago. I have never writ- ten to an author before, but feel connected to you because of the message that you share. Each day I thank God for my blessings and rejoice in His love. The love that I send out into the world returns to me ten-fold. Thank you so much for the messages that you send. It maintains my faith in God's unconditional love.
Bought Embraced The Light, Readit, Signed it and passed it on with request that next reader sign it and pass it on. Wonder how many have read, signed and given it to others in the past couple of years?
Dear Betty, You are indeed a messenger from God! Your books have had a very big impact on my beliefs about death and I now feel no fear of death. I especially enjoyed reading the RIPPLE EFFECT. It was wonderful. It caused me to re-read EMBRACED MY THE LIGHT and now I am confused. You said in that book, that you now know that we do not keep coming back to earth. Do you then think that we only have this one time? As long as I can remember as a child, I have believed in reincarnation and feel that I have lived other lives myself So this has left me somewhat stunned. Could you clear this up for me and perhaps other readers? Thank you so much and I bless you and you work.
Dearest Mrs. Eadie, I read Embraced By The Light when it was first published. I gave that book away. Recently, in a time of great need for uplifting words, I purchased and read Embraced again. I have also read The Ripple Effect. Now, I am purchasing your books again because I keep giving them to those who may benifit. Ripple on my friend. Ripple on. Thank You! Thanks to God! And Thank God for You!
BETTY, I HAVE ENJOYED READING EMBRACED BY THE LIGHT, AWAKENING SPIRIT AND AM NOW READING RIPPLE AFFECT. I FEEL MUCH CLOSER TO GOD WHEN I READ YOUR BOOKS. AT TIMES I FEEL LIKE I HAVE NO PURPOSE IN LIFE. I LIVED IN ABOUT 17 FOSTER HOMES WHEN I WAS YOUNG. MY FATHER DIED OF AIDS A FEW YEARS AGO AND MY MOTHER HAD A NEVOUS BREAKDOWN ABOUT 35 YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS IN THE FIRST GRADE. LIFE HAS NOT SEEM KIND TO ME. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT MY GOD. EVERYTHING I BEEN THROUGH I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A ANGEL WATCHING OVER ME. RIGHT NOW I AM STRUGGLING FINACIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. TWO YEARS AGO SOMEONE MY SISTER WAS DATING MOLESTED MY NIECE AND SHE NOW HAS AIDS. MY HEART BREAKS FOR HER. THIS PAST CHRISTMAS, ANOTHER NEICE WAS MOLESTED BY SOMEONE MY SISTER WAS DATING. AT TIMES I FEEL LIKE IM TRAPPED IN A SAD WORLD AND I DON'T WANT TO BE HERE ANYMORE. THE ONLY ENJOY I GET OUT OF LIFE IS THAT I VOLUNTEER IN A NURSING HOME. I HAVE DONE THIS PAST 3 YEARS. THOSE PATIENTS GIVE ME SOME MUCH LOVE AND I AM ABLE TO GIVE BACK TO THEM. PLEASE REMEMBER ME IN YOUR PRAYERS AND SEND THE ANGELS TO WATCH OVER ME. I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH MORE I CAN TAKE. YOUR BOOKS IN MY LONLINESS HAS FILLED ME WITH JOY. THANK YOU
I have read both Embraced By The Light and The Awakening Heart and thoroughly enjoyed both. I am a strong believer in God as the Holy Trinity. I do not think that fundamentalist Christians should be critical of you for telling what your vision of God and the afterlife was during your near death experience. After all, Jesus did command us to love one another as he loved us. I do think God shows some chosen people glimpses of heaven to help spread the good news about the kingdom he has awaiting us. I, like many other people of faith want to believe that God is about love because I sure need all the love and forgiveness He has to offer. The pastor at my church stresses God's love for us all. I think in part due to his messages and books such as yours, I want to find more and more spiritual fulfillment. For Christians who are made to feel guilty and frightened because of what they get from their church, I would recommend looking for a church that emphasizes God's love for us all. We all should believe and try to do what is right and pleasing to God, but hey, we are human and we fail and God knows that more than we can comprehend. That is why Christ paid the debt for us - to show us how much God really loved us. If you are ever appearing in the South Puget Sound area, I would sure like to hear you. Keep up your good work!
Growing up, I had a terrible resentment towards "people" of the established religions for the large judgements that they so easily placed on me. Because of that, I, in the large part, grew up in a pretty dark world devoid of god, where science and logic prevailed. Then, urged on by my parents, I finally read Embraced. Constantly from chapter to chapter, I felt myself and my heart opening up to what I always thought was true and possible, the love that I had been taught was wrong by so many. The tears often came, followed by "spirit sparks". The book changed my life forever, and with The Awakening, my trip towards following a life of love is continuing on. Being only 21 and in college, by far not the place for great spiritual growth, The Awakening offers the superb mark upon which I remind myself daily that I'm not here to judge but rather to love. And as your love flows out of your book into my heart, I leave my room with a smile, trying to pass it on to as many people as I possibly can. Thank you so much for you work and love, your books have had imeasurable effects in my life as well as many others. I hope to some day see your presentation. Thank you!
Dear Betty, I have read Embraced By The Light and I'm reading The Awakening Heart. You have touched my heart in so many ways. I have herd you talk in Stand Off, Alberta, Canada. I wish to be able to see you again. God Bless You And Your Family.
Have all three on tape and the first two in hardback. What a real need in this time of my life. Keep up the good work and pray for the world.
Dear Betty, I have read both your books, and I just ordered your new one. I was given your tapes by a friend following the death of my 31 year old son. It was so enlightening to me. It's a year this month, since his death, and I seem to be feeling worse then better. I can't seem to come out of my depression. Maybe your new book will help. I can really relate to your heaven experience. About five years ago I believe I experienced a similar out-of-body experience. I would love to talk with you about it. Thanks for your many inspiring words. God bless you. Love, Dorothy
I have read the first 2 books, and anxiously await my order of the third (Ripple Effect). Please know what a blessing and inspiration you are to those of us out here with no one to talk to or share with regarding these subjects. In his love. Debora
GREETINGS FROM THE ANCIENT ONE. MY NAME IS MICHEAL. I AM A PSYCHIC/ METAPHYSICAL PRACTITIONER IN CANADA. MY COMPLIMENTS ON YOUR WEBSITE. ITS VERY IMPRESSIVE. I HAVE READ YOUR BOOK AND FOUND IT ENTERTAINING AND INTERESTING. I WISH YOU CONTINUED SUCCESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY.
Thank you Betty for all three of your books. I have read them all and I loan them out. I have a lot going on with myself spiritually right now just wondering what I am suppose to be doing with my life. I am a Reiki Master and a Karuna Reiki Master and nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing the wonders of God working when I am doing Reiki on a client. God is the healer not me and I tell my clients this. I believe in the after life and everything that you and everyone else has been through with your NDE's My husband had an nde when he was a child. Any way I love you and what you have done for God and all the people that read your books. Thank you and my prayers are with you.
FIRST I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING GOD TO USE YOU. I HAVE READ EMBRACED BY THE THE LIGHT APPROXIMATELY TWO YEARS AGO. I AM SITTING HERE TONIGHT DEPRESSED AND I DON'T KNOW WHY. I HAVE A SON A LITTLE UNDER TWO. HIS FATHER AND I WAS NOT MARRIED, SINCE WE HAVE GOING THE UGLY COURT FIGHTS AND HE HAS NOT SEEN HIS SON IN TWO YEARS. IT BRINGS TEARS TO MY HEARS JUST THINKING OF THE HURT I HAD TO GO THROUGH. ONE THING I GOT OUT OF YOUR BOOK WAS THE SPIRITS THAT PLAYED CUPID IN ORDER FOR IT TO COME TO EARTH TO FULL HIS PURPOSE. I KNOW THAT MY SON HAS A PURPOSE, I KNOW THAT I HAD TO GO THROUGH THE THINGS THAT I HAD TO FOR GOD'S PLAN TO BE CARRIED OUT. I'M JUST HAVING SUCH A HARD TIME DEALING WITH NOT FULLY KNOWING WHAT HE HAS IN STORE. ALTHOUGH I READ YOUR BOOK SOMETIME AGO HAS HAS MADE ME LOOK A LIFE MUCH DIFFERENTLY. WHEN I READ YOUR BOOK IT MAKE ME FEEL VERY CLOSE TO YOU. I ALSO READ YOUR SECOND BOOK WHICH TOUCHED MY LIFE GREATLY. THANKS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO READING THE NEXT BOOK. PLEASE KEEP IN MY FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS. I KNOW THAT GOD WILL SHOW WHAT HE HAS IN STORE. THANKS TO ALL THE OTHER WRITER WHO HAVE INSPIRED ME TO SHARE WITH YOU.
Dear Betty! How blessed is the new life You have shown me to!! You opened the doors to the wonders of God. Oh, I have always known of Him, but have had this feeling of not being good enough. Can You imagine the feeling of relief and the weight that just slipped off my shoulders when I found the truth. I can now have a joyous relationship with Him without the fear of not doing it right. I enjoy life, every single day is a blessing. I am naturally an optimistic person, but this has given me wings. I can now deal with the hardships of life, and I have had my fair share, death and divorce etc. but it doesn't beat me down as it would have a few years back. I can now be thankful for the fact that those events has given me opportunities to grow and meet new people. I have moved back to my native country of Sweden and I am trying to spread the ripples of what I have learned through You. I have much to improve about myself, but I have someone with me to guide me through it. Thank You, thank You for sharing thís with the rest of us. I will keep the ripples going. That is the only way I can repay You for this glorious gift that You have given me. God bless You and Your family for lending You so willingly to us who need Your light. Elisabeth
I cried through Embraced by the Light. I've read all three of your books. I recommended them to a few of my friends. If I could afford to buy them for my friends I would. My sister sent me your books. I was thinking of passing them on, but I can't part with them. You have changed my whole outlook on life and death. But, still I have a hard sometimes with what life brings me. I wanted to write you for so long, but I could never find the words. Even now I don't know what to say except that your books were fantastic. Maybe I'll write again later.
I would just like to share with all, my hunger and love for God and my eagerness to learn to love one another as God wants me to. I thank God for showing me truths and love that I needed in my life through Betty's books as well as all my many other countless blessings. I also thankyou Betty for your courage to share God's message of love in your books, they have shown and helped me so very much.God bless you all. Love, Laura davis
Betty, I just wanted to tell you thank you for writing all three of your books. I have read them twice and get tremendous peace from reading them. I lost my father in a train/car accident this past March and had a terrible time accepting his death until I read your books given to me by a friend. I have now given copies of your books to many of my family members to help them cope with our dad's untimely death. I finally feel his love in my life again. Thank you.
My dear Betty: I am African (From Ghana)and I live here in the US with my Husband and Children. I am also a Business owner and your 1st Book "Embraced" was given to me by one of my clients who "did not think much of it". I could not stop reading until I got to the last Page. I was amazed at the simple truth of life that you share, and continue to do so with the world. You actaully confirmed personal beliefs that I have kept hidden in my heart for so long(though I have never had an NDE)prior to reading the book. I felt like the scales had finally been removed from my eyes! Since then, I had thought about you from time to time and wondered if you were still alive, and if you were, what you were doing with your life. So, I was pleasantly surprised when by chance I heard you on the Radio last Sudany. I said to myself: God could it really be THE "Betty J. Eadie"? I simply could not believe my Luck! On this paricular night, I learnt that you have written 2 books that I never Knew of, and also a website that I could access any time of the day! I thank God for bringing you back into my life again. This proves to me that I have to continue with my dream of helping the poor children in my home country to get better education. Without education they will be completely shut off from the rest of this beautiful world, and the wonderful world of books like yours and they will be limited in attaining thier full potential to help themselves and others. Betty, I Will Love! I Will Love without the fear of pain! I know the eventually I will be content on my dying day that I did make a difference in the world. Thank you so much Betty for your insight, may you be blessed continously. I hope to meet you sone day. Please pray for me for strength and courage to fulfill my life's mission of bringing love and joy to the under-priviledged through books and education! Love, Maggie.
Thank you for the the most unforgettable and insightful book I have ever read. Thank you always for bringing me closer to God through understanding and learning. God Bless You!
I've read EBTL and loved it, I couldn't put it down... I have seen you on Oprah and listened to you the other night on Art Bell.. I don't even listen enough to know that you were on, I couldn't sleep so I turned on Art only to find Rolle on. I just about shut it off when I heard you were the guest that night. Anyway, I listened to you and could not get enough.I couldn't believe I was still listening four hours later. I love your books and to hear how Heaven will be is beautiful... God Bless, and take care... Evelyn
Dear Betty, I like many would want to thank you for your precious books, you are a true Gift from God, and your writing confirm many things I had always believed. One question though, you talked of censored as a self emposed exile from the love of God, but what If anything can you tell us about the Devil, does he exist and is he responsible for people turning 'bad'? Thank you so much, I can't wait to read your next book as each brings us all closer to the Lord.
Dearest BETTY: The light that you bring is the trouth and to get the trouth from a native is the greatest gift that one can receave.
I had read "EBTL" few years back..,I was blown away than..and again last night listening to you on the Art Bell show. Although I work early in the morning.,I just couldn't turn you off as the night wore on. I dragged my butt to work but my thoughts have been consumed with how the after life will be. Your a very fortunate woman...you have a big fan in me...James Corridon
Happy New Year and thank you for sharing your gifts with us all. Will write more later....been on your list for years....took my daughter with me to see you at the Tattered Cover in Denver on August 12, 1996...we love you more than you'll ever know. I have a profound story to tell you that my Navajo neighbor recently shared with me..will write it soon. Love to your whole family!
Dear Betty, Heard your show on Art Bell last night and it was inspirational to say the least. I do intend to read embaced by the light for starters. I have allways been very spiritual and do believe. My road has not been an easy one, but when I need one, there has allways been a blessing there. I wish I could help more people understand that we are "all" here for a purpose, and you have to not let the world consume you and put your priorities in perspective. God Bless, David
Dear B... I just finished The Ripple Effect. It was the most profound book that I have read in over 10 years. My spiritual library is vast but this has to be the one 0f the most important books in my collection. I am fortunate to have lived in California..which helped my spiritual advancement very quickly. I was able to meet such people as James van Praagh, Deepak Chopra, Brian Hurst,Judy Guggenheim and others. Like your readers, I have had many experiences as the ones you write about. This book has touched me deeply..thank you for a truthful and beautiful book. It is a cherished addition to my collection.
Dear Betty: I have so long wanted to tell you how much encouragement Embraced By the Light brought me. I couldn't believe my mind when I first heard it on audio tape! I kept asking myself, "Could this really be?" Even though I had long struggled with depression and agoraphobia you helped me to realize I had options and was not just aa victum. I can't say that I don't still struggle at times, I think of your words and the hope they give and know that my life has meaning and I need to focus on the good more and more. You said that grandmothers had great power to bring about the fullfillment of God's will. I hope to hear more on that. Thank you
I listened to some of your appearance on Art Bell's show last night. I was gratified that you made such a clear statement against abortion. I was trying to find, today, some information concerning that issue on the website www.falundafa.org, which concerns a spiritual practice system, I could call it, which I came across last March. Somewhere on that site, I recall, the "leader," if you will, said something ElSE concerning abortion -- something to the effect that when an individual is aborted, he/she may not be able to come into another lifetime right away -- that, for example, if their NEXT lifetime were supposed to begin in, say, seventy years, then they would have to wait until that time to finally come in, because their "current" incarnation would not have been, according to plan, over until that period of time had elapsed. (Actually, I don't think I remember it perfectly, and perhaps you can find it there.) Incidentally, I would like to suggest you look into this as both a spiritual and health-enhancing system. One thing I did want to suggest, though -- and I suppose you aren't eager to have howling, hateful mobs picket you, so perhaps you can just decline to answer if the matter is brought up again -- is that the idea that the government shouldn't regulate abortion because that would be interfering with free will, is in fact a specious idea. We NEED, unfortunately, laws to interfere with people's "free will," when stealing, raping -- and yes, killing -- are the intended actions pursuant to that free will. Such is my belief. Abortion is, in general, killing, I feel confident in saying. Thanks for listening.
I have read all of your books. They have awakened my faith in Jesus and God. Thank you. This week my 17 year old daughter's car broke down. She was able to coast into a church's parking lot. We called a friend who is a good mechanic to fix it. We thought it would be easy to fix. She had just bought the car a week before and had received an safety inspection sticker without a problem. She had invested all her money in this car, and doesn't have any money for any kind of repairs. The mechanic could not find the problem right away and therefore had to check the entire car to find what was wrong. In this process he found that the car had a major gas leak. He said that she shouldn't even have been able to start it without the car exploding. Here we were concerned about the money to fix it and we could have been going to a funeral. This is just another addition to His long list of miracles. Thank you God, for saving my daughter's life. Thank you Betty, for helping me to see the wonder of God and not letting this experience go unnoticed and passed off as a coincedence. All my love, Cecilia
Dear Betty, I have just read your whole website and unlike others have only heard of the wonders of your book "Embraced by the Light". My mother has had 2 near death experiences, one after her first born child in 1946 and the second more profound one in 1972. I wanted to tell you that I know how much courage it has taken to reach out ot the masses when you did and how very needed your truth was and is. THankyou so very much for your dedication, persistence and love of sharing Gods love. God bless all that you do, all whom you love, and those who read or listen to your words. Sharilyn Wood Stalling
I enjoyed your interview on Art Bell's show last night. It was the most inspiring night that I've had in a very long time. I can't wait to read your books.
I've reaad your first two books... Inspirational and Awakening!!
Well Betty, I finished all three books and the words that flooded my mind as I was reading The Ripple Effect were, "I am very proud of you Betty Jean". So I had to somehow relay this message to you. I think that pretty much sums it up. God Bless
I knew by your description of Christ that your experience was true. NO ONE could make up or imagine the way He wraps His love around you. He came to me too, once, about 40 years ago, tho not when I was near death. He came in answer to a prayer in which I asked God, if He was there, to let me know if there was a God. I've told few people, and I still don't know what He wants me to do. When I asked Him this so many years ago He told me to love myself and others. Not always so easy as it sounds! I would love to hear from anyone else whom He has come to "speak" to as a result of a prayer. I know I'm not special; and I'm sure I'm not alone? Thank you for your books. Much love, Sharon
I read. . . no . . . consummed your first two books. I was looking out the window this morning admiring the beautiful view I am blessed to have, and I thought of you. I then wondered if you had a website and that the next time I was on-line I would have to look for it. And what if when I went to the website, I found you had published your greatly anticipated next book. I tucked the thought away until I was on-line again and of course, you know what I found. You had another book!!! What great joy I felt although not really surprised. It was meant to be for me I guess. The right time. I have been spiritually low on energy, struggling with everyday stuff. I can't wait until your book arrives. Thank you for your courage and strength to share this with us all. Amy
There are definitley forces to be that do not want me to send this message. I was bumped off line three times while in the middle of typing it out. My younger son came to my rescue and temporarily disconnected "Call Waiting" so I can complete it. Anyway, if you ever consider organizing a support/discussion group,(definitley non-profit)and are in search of a person/persons to organize a group within the state of Connecticut,New Haven County,you know how to reach me. I am one of many that are fed up feeling worse when I leave my church, then before I entered. Priests,Rabbi's,Chaplan's,etc.,have no right inflicting this psychological burden. Satan is doing a thorough job already. The Creator and heavenly hosts that Ms.Eadie was blessed to meet is, without a doubt, the same all the loving religious scriptures of the world have written about. No human being is above or below another. Where ever a holier or better than thou belief exists, evil has already taken up residence. I speak from experience when I quote a loving St.Paul "You must hold what is evil in abomination,fix all your desire upon what is good." This is without a doubt our only defense against evil. Thank you for this website. God Bless.
Have you heard about the Baha'i Faith? So many of the realities described in your book are found in the Baha'i writings that it was as if you were restating them. You must read the writings of Baha'u'llah in order to realize how much redundance there is!

Dearest Betty, You are truly God's Love in human form. As I was reading some predictions for the next 25 yrs of the new century I was facinated with all the changes that will be taking place in our world. Then a great sadness tugged at my heart. Not any where in the artical was the mention of God or spirituality. In a time when the human race is struggling with the fact that their lives just aren't working anymore and our souls are telling us there's a love out there that is so powerful and so beautiful, we, the people, are still looking to find the answers in a material world. There's an unsettling restlessness among us and some of us don't know where to turn to ease the discomfort. I thank God for sending us His message of love through you and many others such as Neal Donald Walsh and Elisabeth Kubler Ross to name a few. God bless you Betty and....don't ever quit. Love & Light Teri
Angel betty,Now we know what your mission was,and your doing a wonderful job....such comfort you've brought millions and millions of poor souls,I can't get enough of you,may god bless you and your family this new year,God be you.Tammi
I could never find the words to express to you just how much "Embraced by the Light" changed my life and the lives of those around me. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.
Hello Betty Jean God Bless You For choosing to Do The Lords will im sure you have touch many Lives i believe we are all Special and are here to fulfill a mission May The Light Of Christ Shine On you always
Dear Betty: I feel like your books are my bibles ,When I am sad or I feel loneliness,I go back to read your books again and again. Makes me feel that GOD want to remining me that he is with me all the time, that Iam not alone. That he loves me. Thank you for writing the books . Kory
Happy New Year Betty Jean! I read your 1st book in 1996 when my father was ill and dying of cancer. It changed my life and allowed me to find peace in letting him go home. I am now reading your latest book (yes, I've read the 2nd one). I just wanted to say thank you for sharing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. With much love - Katherine
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MILLENIUM TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF U. I LOVE YOUR BOOKS VERY MUCH MRS. EADIE. HOPE U COME TO INDIA ATLESAT ONCE. I WOULD LOVE TO MEET U. LOVE BEHROOZ.
Dear Betty, I picked up your book a few weeks after I had to leave my job of many years. I didn't realize you had written the Ripple Effect until I raised my eyes up and saw your name. I was so excited because I had read all your books. My mother asked me what I was reading the past week and I spoke about your book in detail. Mom is 83 and she remembered a story her mother told her many years before. Graany had lost her husbaqnd of many years and was crying everynight in bed. My grandfather appeared to her in a dream and told her to stop crying as he was carrying a brown bag full of her tears and he couldn't carry it anymore. Thank you so much for all your books and for bringing us all back to where we came from. God bless you Betty and pray for us all as we will pray for you. Irene
Dear Betty, I have read your first book and am in the middle of your second. In some strange way I feel very close to you. I have never had an experience such as yours, although many of the things you describe in your books seem so familiar to me and bring me to tears with feelings of joy and great love. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for spreading the Lord's message of love.
