Despite our advancements in science and medicine, death remains one of
human civilization’s most glorious mysteries. A handful of doctors have written
books on phenomena such as near-death experiences, but research and data is
scarce on pre-death experiences. Because of this lack of information, Dr. John
Lerma has devoted his career to compiling anecdotal and scientific research on
pre-death hallucinations from the countless terminally-ill patients he lovingly
cares for as a doctor and director at The Medical Center of Houston, Texas.
Now, in the groundbreaking book, Into The Light, Dr. Lerma shares his valuable
research and guidance in 16 inspirational stories of children and adults
confronting their deaths through the comforting visions of divine beings. By
presenting these mysterious visions, synchronicities, and angelic
conversations terminally ill patients encounter, Dr. Lerma shows how knowledge
of death can ease the pain and fear as we prepare to enter into the light. In this
book you will learn:
• The exhilarating and calming elements of pre-death experiences.
• Healing during the dying process.
• The difference between hallucinations and visions.
• Self-forgiveness and self-love as the key to a joyous life and a peaceful
The mystical experiences described here delve into: the creation of the
universe, past and future extinctions, dark angels and white angels, selfless
suffering and its effect on humanity, free will as the vital ingredient to create on
earth and in heaven, and many more incredible revelations. The poignant stories
in Into the Light will leave you feeling uplifted in faith, hope, and love.
