Into The Light... My Story

My Angelic Awakening, which catalyzed not only my writings, but all that I offer.


Having my own Out of Body, Near Death experience with the afterlife was a miraculous, life-changing journey. It all began with a day when I was feeling fed up and angry with the detrimental choices I had made in my life. I was so sick of making harmful choices and I was at my ropes end. So, as the anger and disgust welled up inside, I, to my surprise, out of the blue just burst into prayer.

I had never prayed like that. It was a “passion prayer” that came from deep within. It was a demanding prayer where I didn’t ask God to fix it, I demanded it with every part of my being. I can be a little feisty and I was at that moment. I prayed aloud, telling the Creator-God… “You had better get down here now and fix my life or just take me home. I have screwed it up and I can’t fix it. I’m done and I don’t want to live this way anymore.”


Little did I know how quickly the divine responds to those demanding types of prayers.


When I arrived at work, I continued with my day and forgot all about my morning fit. Around lunchtime, not three hours after my prayer, I was driving to the bank, and I began to see a vision unfold in my mind. It was like watching a movie. I saw a white car coming towards me and then I saw it hit me head-on. I thought to myself “what a strange vision.” Just as the vision began to fade, I looked to my left, and I saw a white car coming towards me. It crossed the yellow line, and I knew it would hit me head on.


In an immeasurable hyper-second of time, everything happened so fast.


I recalled thinking, three things simultaneously… “Oh no, this isn’t what I meant… awe sh*t, this is gonna hurt” and “I guess my prayer is being answered.” At that moment I was positive that God chose to take my life rather than fix it. When that thought set in I panicked and thought... “Oh no, I can’t leave my son behind.” He was young and the only thing I wanted to live for. But, I knew whatever was happening was likely signed and sealed.

Then, I was drawn to look upward. I saw an image of a light being descending extremely fast from my left towards me. With a deep inner “knowing and memory” I recognized the angelic light being as Archangel Michael. I felt the angel’s force of energy pulling me out of my car. I was then floating in a vortex of dark, silent space. I could see only a trail of light emanating from Angel’s path ahead of me. In a magnetized draw, I glided upward and behind the angel having no movement or control of my own.

I heard the cars crash behind me. I turned around to look but then halted, figuring what’s done, is done. Michael had taken me out of my body before the crash. Realizing that I was no longer alive on Earth, I felt a sad thought move through me knowing I had left my son behind. Just then, I thought…“No, I can’t die, I have to stay for him.”

Michael, however, confirmed the angelic forces would always tend to my son. Michael reminded me of the time when my son was electrocuted at the age of 3. He had been shocked to the point of blacking out and as he came to he was talking about being in the presence of three angels. Knowing Michael was one of those three angels that visited my son–I thought “OK then, I’m good to go.” I turned and looked up into Michael’s trail of light.

For a moment, I just bathed in the illuminated space and Michael’s light trail. The space I occupied was illuminated with only a glowing light from Michael‘s light stream. Everything outside of that was a dark void. Yet, there was a lot of activity taking place within the dark area. Then, as we went higher and farther into the space, a whitish haze appeared all around me. While I can’t even give a word to define it, I can say it was so silent, peaceful, and absolutely perfect. It was so pristine and complete. Everything felt together. Everything was interconnected and within the same space. Even the cars crashing. Everything was accessible and instantly sensed. There was no separation. I was part of everything. Here, there was only telepathic knowing in unison with everything. My whole existence was in love with the entire space.

As I watched Michael’s light ahead of me expand the white haze became thick and wide. As we turned in toward the right, I looked up and saw a tremendous brilliant light which became piercing as we moved towards it. I knew Michael intended to take me into that brilliant light. While I never wanted to leave the space I was in - into the brilliant light, we went. It blinded me. Everything went blank.

The next thing I recall was standing inside an “entryway” with Michael to my left and Angel Gabreal to my right. Neither, by the way, were human nor were they male or female. They were light beings, with both masculine and feminine consciousness as one. I knew them well, and they knew me perfectly. I sensed that this was not the first time we had been together. They knew everything about me and I had a very comfortable remembrance.

The next moment I recall was having a brief conversation. They must have told me I was to go back to Earth because I recall disputing my return. Having my hand on my hip and a little stomp of my imaginary foot, I remember telling communicated… “That’s just wrong. That’s not right. You can’t bring someone here, let them know this place then, send them back!”

I continued my protest. They both said something else to me (which I don’t recall.) Then, I was led to look ahead past this type of entryway. While the entryway itself was illuminated, beyond it was pure darkness. Mesmerized, I gazed into the void of nothingness. I wondered if that was where I was going to be sent. Then, I sensed something coming towards us from out of the darkness. I began to see the dark space itself morph and transform. It was very much like water moving when you swirl it around. I then saw a  presence approaching. It was like an illuminated fluid moving and waving in mid-air like it was shape-shifting its form.

As it moved closer to the entryway approaching us it began to take shape and form - similar to what Michael and Gabreal appeared as. Then, I received the impact and senses of the presence. I knew I had been with this being before. The supreme love and wisdom that emanated from this presence was indescribable and awe-filled. There are just no words to describe it. Nor is there any physical experience to compare.

I knew this majestic awe-filled presence was Creator God. Un-definable by anything and yet, definable “through” everything… this presence was All things, all places, all experiences, all perfection.

Communication between the four of us was universal and telepathic. I sensed the Creator God had dealt with me before and that this was not the first time I had stood before the three of them. Even so - I still continued my argument stating that it wasn’t right to bring people here and then send them back to that Earth space.

Everything slowed down and the silence became deeper. In slow motion, the divine Creator began to move closer towards me stretching out an image of what could only be described in human terms as an illuminated arm. I felt that I was going to receive a hug and be allowed to stay. Then, as the illuminated arm-like fluid reached out towards me towards my chest a brilliant, blinding light exploded everywhere. In that immeasurable second, I realized what was going to happen. My last thought was “No!”…

The next thing I recall is “coming to” with a white hazy cloud enveloping me. At first, I thought maybe they sent me to another place in the afterlife. All the white haze looked like heaven and I still felt peaceful, light, and spirit-like. So I just waited to see what would happen next. After a few moments, I realized that I was sitting in my car. Shaking my head, I thought to myself…“Ugh, they sent me back!“ The white haze around me was the airbag contents.

Still not believing they would send me back I questioned whether I was alive or dead. I still felt like I was separated from matter and floating. While I could see the accident, paramedics, and traffic I didn’t feel like I was actually in the earth world. I even thought for a moment that maybe they sent back to Earth as a Spirit and I was just hovering inside the car. I could still feel Michael near helping me “understand” so I waited to receive understanding. Then, when a friend appeared and helped me get out of my car, I knew I had lost my argumentative battle to stay in the afterlife. They sent me back.

For a brief moment, I recall thinking “REALLY!?!?” But, I felt so “perfect” that I couldn’t even give any thought to anything less than awe. Again, Michael sent his wisdom through me. I knew somehow, some way, my prayer had been answered. I would never be the same.

And so it was.

I had no idea how this experience would unfold yet; I knew this moment of divine intervention would be one of the greatest blessings in my life. Intuitively I knew I was required to follow a new path and communicate with the divine directly. I received exactly what I prayed. My miraculous journey had just begun.

The changes, awakenings, wisdom, and ethereal clarity that I experienced thereafter are revealed through the books I have written. Every process, understanding, and lesson shared in my writings are exactly what divine Spirit led me through directly. It wasn’t easy by any means but when genuine effort is made – miracles happen. Our prayers become answered as we reawaken to our passion and who we are inside… a Spirit–being.

Whitening the Stones of the Mind ~ One of you is functioning Yet, there is another “you” within… waiting to emerge. Are you tired of carrying the weight of unhealthy thoughts or being someone you are not? Do you want to feel better, think better or just be better? If so, allow your mind to be whitened, to reveal the greatest gifts that dwell within you… the principles of who you really are. As the Philosopher’s Stone and secret elixir of life, “Whitening the Stones of the Mind” boasts a complete ascension process that grinds down self-damaging thought to free us from self-undoing. Simultaneously, the content ascends the soul consciousness to embrace ourselves “as” the elixir of life.
The content takes us through the initial three philosophies of ascension. First, we cleanse the body, to free the genuine self. Second, we heal mentality to experience a peaceful mind. Then, we empower and bring the soul’s consciousness to the surface as our life guide. As unorthodox and controversial as it may be, the practices, discussions, word games, creative works, and metaphysical messages speak to the inner self, while candid discussions and thought provoking messages catalyze an intimate re-awakening. Whether you receive one AHA moment or the entire book changes your life, by the end of the book, you will not be the same thinking person you were when you opened it. Join Mahala on this mind-blowing journey of re-awakening the greatest philosophy of all… the person your soul already knows you are!
