Karen was sitting on the edge of her bed, suffering from a high fever and bronchitis, when a beautiful white light appeared in the room and slowly floated towards her. She knew she could speak to it and silently demanded, "If you are not of God, you must leave." In spite of her request, the light continued to move closer, and it finally enveloped her, bestowing upon her a feeling of total peace, a tranquility she never felt before. The light spoke directly to her in Italian, whispering, "Luce lucina, bella luce lucina." Since her grandparents were Italian, she knew what the words meant: "Light, little light, beautiful little light." She was speechless, and tears of joy rolled down her face. From that moment on, her life was never the same, and she now receives very specific messages from angels and deceased loved ones on a regular basis. Karen is a Certified Spiritual Counselor (certified by author Doreen Virtue), a Usui and Lightarian Reiki Master and Energy Healer, a Certified Hypnotherapist, and a Past Life Regressionist.
