Editorial Reviews


“This is a must-read for anyone on their spiritual path. Dannion does a wonderful job at illuminating the mysteries of life, and the illusion of death.” (James Van Praagh, author of Unfinished Business)

“With the warmhearted clarity and wisdom of those who genuinely know, Dannion and Kathryn Brinkley offer inspired and practical insights for those who want to enrich their individual life in a way that benefits not only themselves, but uplifts the entire planet. This book is a must-read.” (Michael Bernard Beckwith , author of Spiritual Liberation)

“An inspiring upbeat book with the message that ‘True joy in life comes from living in the moment, while learning to bloom where you are planted.’’’ (London Free Press)

From the Back Cover

In 1975, Dannion Brinkley was struck and killed by lightning. When he awoke in a morgue twenty-eight minutes later, everything was forever changed. During this near-death experience, Brinkley was sent to heaven through a tunnel of light. On the other side, he received valuable lessons and spiritual knowledge, which he brought back and incorporated into his daily life. For him, it was a profound spiritual transformation. During the next twenty years, Brinkley had not one, but two more near-death experiences. Each time he visited heaven, where more knowledge was revealed to him, he was sent back to earth to fulfill his heavenly duties. Now, in Secrets of the Light, he shares the lessons he learned in the afterlife so we, too, can fulfill our true purpose in life.

Brinkley outlines the "Four-Fold Path to Power"—Love, Choice, Belief, and Prayer—that will empower you to follow your destiny. He then unveils the Seven Truths from the afterlife and how to use them to enhance health, happiness, and prosperity. We also learn how to perform a "daily life review"—a quick assessment of your daily life that acts as a reminder to give thanks, stay true to yourself, and treat others with kindness. With wit, humor, and compassion, Brinkley shows that by living the way heaven intends, and always being conscious of your actions and how they affect others, you will find happiness in this life and beyond.

Format: Hardcover
In this book, Dannion Brinkley and his wife Kathryn Brinkley, examine his three near death experience(NDEs) in perspective, comparing them with each other. As it happens, each of these NDEs had very specific messages to convey and equally specifc lessons to deliver. These injunctions and decrees that Dannion actually makes are, in effect, quite well known, almost trite. For instance, one is asked to drink 8-10 glasses of water per day, exercise at least five times a week, set aside time daily for meditation. One is reminded once again the power of love, the power of belief and the power of prayer. One is also provided with a number of potent affirmations. However, coming from Dannion's perspective, the very same cliches (that could bore us to tears if they came from somebody else), have a different clang, a different energy. It is as if one were receiving very common sense advice from a friendly and caring older brother, one who is honestly interested in our welfare. A better intermediary between the so called higher echelons of Heaven and the lower planes of human consciousness would be hard to find. For one quality that Dannion Brinkley is completely free of, is self glorification. His understanding of our faults and foibles is very strong and the main reason why his message is so powerful is because it is so totally non-judgemental.

One important topic that Dannion Brinkley specifically discusses is self pity and self martyrdom. He shows, in exceptionally clear terms, how incredibly toxic the 'victim' mindset can get. I could say more, but I do not want to risk a 'spoiler'.

Another important subject that is covered in this book is the life-review.

Brinkley has come of age. This is surely his finest work. It combines his life details ['dying' 3 times] for new readers with practical, easy to read advice and pieces of prose which can only be described as inspirational.
Health-wise Dannion seems to be permanently on the edge of 'going home' to spirit, and whenever he decides to go [let us hope he stays here for many more years] he has already left an amazing legacy.
I have read many accounts of 'heaven/the 'other side.' This is not only the most believable, but a recipe for helping create heaven on earth.
A remarkable book from a remarkable man.

This book makes you conscious of the fact that every thought word and deed in this life affects you and others in this life and then.....onto the other side too. You are accountable for your life and actions. We all count. Every last one of us. Every thought is energy and manifests itself. Prayer is powerful and it really works. Pray for the living and pray for the dead too. They get stuck too. Life goes on and on and on. Cause and effect. There are consequences for all actions. Be conscious always.
You can affect generations to come by what we do or don't do now. Every second counts.Be conscious in every one of them. Be your authentic self and that is your gift to the world. Bring as much joy to this life as you can and help others bring out and shine their light too. It is why you are here. SO SHINE!!!!!!!

Dannion & Kathryn have outdone themselves this time. Very well written and easy to understand. These two also walk their talk... I'm proud to say I know both of them to be beautiful people who really care about others. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to understand what is in other realms.. Blessings !!

I purchased this book when I purchased Saved by the Light. I didn't know Dannion had published two books let alone three. This book arrived first and I just couldn't wait for Saved by the Light, I started to read the last one first (go figure)!! It is truly a book of discovery. I had to put the book down several times and just think about what I had read. I reread several passages several times.
I have lent this book to my daughter who has a severe eating disorder but a real infinity with people who are dying (she looked after my father when he was terminally ill). She has remembered an NDE she had herself when she was 15yrs old and in a car accident(I had forgotten the NDE). This book has helped to change my daughters concept of life and got her onto her path of recovery. She has also contacted our local Hospice to become a community supporter for the families of the terminally ill. Thank you so much Dannion and our protectors in the universe. She remembers the beings in the light and the feeling of total love.
This book has really rekindled my spiritual path. I have believed for some time that forgiveness and love are the most important things we do in this lifetime and I am so happy to see this corroborated. I have so much to be grateful for, the opportunity to learn though this book is one of those very special things that are put in our path at the time we need them. Thank you Universe and thank you Dannion, your words are truly inspirational.

If the Secrets Of The Light are important, as Brinkly says, then why is the book all about him and so little about the Secrets Of the Light? Honestly, I only read half the book, then gave up and moved on to another book and another author. After listening to Brinkley on C2C radio I got this book on the promise that it is the best book of all of his, with no need to read the previous ones. Supposedly it's all in this book. I was hoping to read about what he'd learned during his visits to the afterlife. Instead I'm reading all about him and his personal experiences. That's wonderful, I'm not unhappy with that part, however, so far I've not read anything regarding the Secrets Of The Light except tidbits that don't tell much at all. And the book, according to the title and promotions, is supposed to be about the Secrets Of The Light. Maybe if I go back to it and stick with it he'll start offering what he claims he was taught and is so very important to read about. I was sincerely trusting this loving individual and what he'd promised in this book when I'd listened to him on the radio. I wish I didn't have to write a negative review, as he and his wife do so much for our veterans. I feel like I should've donated the amount of the book to that purpose instead. Sorry.
