Betty J. Eadie: Embraced By The Light

Betty J. Eadie, author of the international bestseller Embraced By The Light, had the most eminent, prominent and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. She has written several books in an effort to share with others what she was shown in the spirit world about God and man’s existence, the meaning of life and what awaits all in the after life. Betty has given countless speaking events, lectures, radio and television appearances and interviews across America and abroad informing others that death need not be feared, the exquisite beauty of the spirit world, meeting Jesus, reuniting with deceased loved ones and the most important message of God’s unconditional love: that all are here to learn to “love one another.”

In November of 1973, at the age of 31, Betty J. Eadie died following routine surgery. After undergoing what has been called “the most profound and detailed near-death experience ever recorded.” Her spirit separated from her body and she traveled home to check on her family who were unaware of her presence. She then traveled through a tunnel of blackness to a being of light whom she recognized as the Savior of our world, Jesus Christ. Betty was then sent to view various aspects of what she calls our “heavenly home.” She walked through a beautiful garden, was shown the creation of this world, experienced a “life-review” and then was told she must return to earth–and why. Betty was then returned to her physical body with a life-changing message for all who will listen.

For 19 years, Betty shared the knowledge and message of her NDE with family, friends and small groups while continuing to practice all that she was taught during her experience. Eventually she began speaking publicly to larger groups, one of which was the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS) as well as various grief groups and church gatherings. In 1987, Betty began writing her experience in pamphlet form to share with her cancer patients. Her efforts were brought to a halt when her father became ill and Betty became his sole caregiver. Then, in 1991, after the death of her father, she was prompted to pick up her writing again. However, this time she was “shown” how to finish the manuscript in book form. The result was the astonishing book, Embraced By The Light, whose phenomenal success quickly thrust Betty into the public spotlight. After “Embraced” was published, Betty gave up her hypnotherapy practice and began traveling extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Ireland, speaking on death and what awaits all beyond this life.

The extraordinary success of Embraced By The Light stunned the publishing world. Never before had a book by an unknown first time author, published by an obscure publishing house, demanded so much attention and become a long standing New York Times national bestseller. “Embraced” went on to sell over 13 million copies and stayed on the Times bestseller list in hardcover and paperback for more than two years, including a record 78 weeks in the prestigious #1 position.

The worldwide attention and acclaim that followed its publication changed many lives, including Betty’s. More importantly to Betty, the sharing of her near-death experience brought comfort and hope to millions of people by freeing them from the fear of death and dying. Its message of God’s unconditional love also taught people to be less judgmental, and to live each day with greater joy and happiness. Such a powerful and timely message eventually made Embraced By The Light the fifth best-selling book of the decade.

Today, Betty is extremely involved working with Native and First Nation Peoples through visits with various tribes and Council Meetings when asked to do so in the U.S. and Canada. She brings workshops to Native groups, such as “Healing Residential School” for elders and “How to Build Self-worth” for the youth who have difficulty understanding the abuse their parents may have suffered being raised in boarding schools, yet need to ready themselves to be leaders of future generations. Betty not only champions the Native Peoples, but is proactive in the issues that affect their lives today. She continues working on future books and, should it be part of her mission, she hopes to see Embraced By The Light brought to film.

    Dear John & Tama – what a special interview. After taking last quarter’s Storytelling and Content Strategy class and hearing her son speak, I read her book. The conversation really brought it to life, and I particularly enjoyed her advice to “follow your passion, follow your heart.” Thank you both!
