Awakenings from the Light
Bookmark and Share
Nancy Rynes was riding her bicycle when a large SUV approached. The vehicle’s driver, absorbed in texting while driving, plowed right into Rynes.

Suffering from severe spinal and head injuries, Rynes knew she was dying. At that moment, she underwent the first of two life-changing near-death experiences—her consciousness split between her frightened, injured self laying on the road, and an impartial, peaceful observer-consciousness who watched as first responders fought to keep her alive. Her second, more lengthy near-death experience came days later, during the surgery that attempted to repair her traumatized spine.

Rynes, a scientist and confirmed skeptic, was shown the wonders of Heaven, experiencing joy, love, and beauty on such a grand scale that she wept at its magnitude. She then met and spoke with a Being who gave her insights into life, love, and the wonders of Spirit. After her tour of Heaven, she was returned to her body to begin the long, slow process of recovering from injuries her surgeon affirms should have killed her.

Nancy recounts the amazing sights of Heaven in her book Awakenings from the Light.

Nancy Rynes
While Nancy started out her education as an artist (at Chicago's American Academy of Art), she went on to earn a degree in geology from Northern Illinois University, then attended the University of Colorado, Boulder, for Masters-level geology coursework. The sciences taught her to base her views on things she could measure, and since spiritual matters were not measurable, for her they did not exist.

The skepticism remained until January of 2014, when Spirit gave her a wake-up call in the form of a traumatic accident and near-death experience (NDE). Since her NDE, she has returned to a more spiritual and creative life based on the wisdom she learned in Heaven.

Nancy has been an archeological artist, geologist, data analyst, and corporate writer and trainer. But then Heaven threw her a curveball, and now she writes books and teaches about the Divine, what happens when we die, and how we can bring a little bit of "Heaven" to our lives on Earth. Nancy is also an award-winning artist, represented in galleries across the western USA.
