In my recently published memoir Embracing Our Oneness, I relate my Gateway experience of going out of my body and finding myself in a vast new realm, as if a veil suddenly evaporated, revealing a far greater reality. Beloved departed family members appear briefly, then are suddenly gone and stunned, overcome by the enormity of it all, I suddenly find myself facing a brilliant, overwhelmingly loving Light. Love so powerful, so clear that it simply shines forth as this holy Light. Even as awe, love, and joy flood through me, I shatter, leaving only the essence of my heart. "It's you! And God--this God I was so angry at for years after my little sister burned to death when I was a child--responds, Yes, as it has always been."
