had a brush with death. While in that "other world,"
she experienced Peace beyond description, Serenity beyond
words, and Wisdom beyond limitation. When she returned,
she was clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient. Soon
thereafter, she realized her mission in life was to share
her experience so that others might lose their fear of death.
She says, "Wherever you go ... there you are! And that
is the case with the transition of death. Each of us will
transcend this life experience, and when we do we will meet
with ourselves. There are no mysteries, only things we've

The following is
her near-death testimony:
Keeping in mind that I am someone
very much like you, the reader, I give you the following
information with the hope that your mental image of who
we are and what we are all a part of will enlarge society's
vision of reality and bring greater awareness and comfort
to each of us, singly and as a whole.
Light, an entire world of it, beckoned to me. Without hesitation,
I stepped into it. It enfolded me and I was comforted for
the first time since I'd left it to take on this physical
incarnation. The human part of me would have wept with relief.
The spirit part of me, the part that was departing the Earth-realm,
was matter-of-fact. Let's get on with the real stuff, I
I walked away from my physical shell
without regret, confusion, or hesitation. I was adrift within
the body of Creation. All things were one. There were no
separations or barriers.
Imagine, if you will, containing your
entire focus within one single cell of your body for 20,
30, 40 years. Suddenly you shift your focus and become aware
of the rest of your cells and the space that surrounds them.
Suddenly you realize that there is a massive part of yourself
that you'd closed your eyes to all these years. You are
not made up of one cell. You are made up of billions of
cells. And now you have the opportunity to reacquaint with
yourself. This is not something, someone, or some place
that you need to get to know. This is the entirety of you
that you'd known before and had merely forgotten. This is
what the 'death experience' was like for me - stepping into
a remembering, an awareness of the entirety of Creation
and my part in it.
The Light and the Voice guided me.
In peace, I followed. If you can imagine, it was like one
cell freed from its designated place within your body, now
floating freely through your blood stream. Passing other
cells, floating by vital organs, marveling at the scenery
of the reality beyond Earth and third dimension. I floated,
in pure Light, beyond the boundaries of Earth. Stars, solar
systems, galaxies - they were miniscule and of little importance
within the larger vision of things.
Light took me further, deeper, into existence until Earth
and its Universe were invisible to me. I passed other universes,
circles of them, sixteen to a circle. On the edge of existence,
looking back, these circles of universes looked like strings
of pearls. The Voice explained to me that, within each 'string,'
the universes were connected and accessible to each other
via what we now call 'black holes.' I couldn't count how
many 'strings of pearls' there were. The vision was incredible
and, in that instant, that memory re-visited, my life was
changed irrevocably. (But, at the time, I didn't realize
that I was returning to 'life,' this life.)
"For visionary purposes,: the
Voice advised me, "think of this existence you're viewing
as a 'body.' The planets, solar systems, and universes are
cells within the body. Everything else is the space that
surrounds the cells that make up the body."
It's rather like saying, "I am
within the body of God," I responded.
I pointed to a 'string of pearls'
and continued, "And so, if the body of God is, for
visionary purposes, similar to the human anatomy, that 'string
of pearls' is in the area of the left lung."
I watched in silence as a thought
formed and became a single, brilliant bullet of Light. It
sped toward a region of universes and vanished into the
darkness there. The body of God aligning and healing itself?
Perhaps. The Voice went on to explain to me that the Truth
comes to us in stages. As we assimilate and understand a
layer, the next layer is peeled away for us to ruminate
upon. Often these Truths are revealed in symbols, images,
thoughts, and inspirations that the human brain can easily
accept and interpret. I do my best to relay things exactly
as I see and hear them, with the understanding that what
is presented may be 'stepped down' for easy interpretation
inside this 3-D reality. In addition, I have found that,
if you receive a message or a vision and your mind/thoughts/interpretation
cannot change that vision, it is representative of a Truth.
This experience I've just described,
and which I've re-visited at least one hundred times, to
date, has not changed since 1974. Due to this unchanging
vision of existence, it is necessary for me to attempt to
incorporate it into other revelations that I receive. Sometimes
I successfully integrate everything immediately. Sometimes
I need to wait for the next revelation so as to understand
where each piece of the puzzle fits.
reality is evolving quickly. I believe that we're being
shown pieces of a huge 'puzzle,' for lack of a better description.
Keeping an open mind and being willing to receive more insight
and wisdom, no matter whether it seems to contradict something
we already believe we know, allows us to evolve more quickly.
Standing steadfastly on one piece of the puzzle (a Truth)
creates a resistance to the next revelation (puzzle piece)
and hinders the universal flow that we all seek.
The imagery just given above might
help us to envision 'Universal Flow.' If we allow ourselves
to use this image as a 'base,' we can see the oneness of
all things. If all things in this existence are contained
within a 'body,' there is no separation, just as there is
not true separation within our own bodies. Using the imagery,
we can also see that, if a thought is formed in 'the mind
of God' it flows easily to the rest of the body - and vice
versa. What this image implies/suggests is that there is
nothing in the way of the 'flow' of all things within God/existence.
And so it seems as though, for whatever
reason, it is my task to share what I've seen and heard
throughout my 'ethereal wanderings,' as outlandish as some
of these things might seem. Perhaps my experiences are pieces
of the Truth or possibly only possibilities to stimulate
your mind and mine. But, I believe that this is a piece
of the puzzle and a step toward the coming revelations.
May wisdom guide our footsteps and our thoughts.

About Lauren's book "Called"
Zimmerman's book "Called" introduces her series, "Other
Worlds," which fictionalizes a combination of the author's
beliefs and experiences concerning alien life forms. When
Paul realizes his true alien identity, everything starts
to fall into place and apart, unless he can help the newly
arrived visitors from space evade the military and learn
from the aliens how to ensure future harmony between their
kind and humankind. "Called" opens a new world
of possibilities as Paul starts to question his earthly
origins. Detailed memories of another planet and family
have begun to surface. While he struggles to accept his
true identity, he becomes aware of dear friends hovering
invisibly above the Earth in a giant mother-ship. They visit
him in dreams, reminding him of the mission he accepted
before coming to Earth. That mission is to reestablish a
relationship between the people of Earth and their universal
friends and family. Paul is compelled to follow an instinct
that leads him to Arizona. Upon arriving, he meets a Native
American man who appears to have been waiting for him. His
new friend leads him to the central mountains of Arizona
where they are destined to rescue the occupants of an alien
space craft that crashes to Earth. Together they hide the
aliens from military forces and learn about the nature of
life, energy, and love. On this incredible journey of self-discovery,
love blossoms between Paul and a woman, who like him, has
always felt she was different. Together they share adventures
in this book and the next!
