When she was 21 years old, Cynthia was severely injured by her abusive boyfriend. During an emergency operation she left her body. “Hovering above my body, I saw the surgeons operating. I saw them take out the organs near my ruptured spleen and place them on the outside of my stomach.”Then Cynthia floated up through the ceiling. “I found myself in a spinning vortex of brilliant bright white light, going higher and higher. I felt the presence of loving beings around me, watching me.
“I came to a place that seemed familiar. There was a Supreme Presence there. It was brilliant bright white Light that was Love. I knew that I had died, but there was no pain and no fear. There was no sense of time. It was very peaceful and I felt safe and loved.
“I was told that I could not stay – I had work to do on earth. I somehow had a knowingness about my place on the planet and my purpose in life. I knew that I had to dance.
Cynthia regained consciousness two days later. She left the hospital eight days later and stayed at a Battered Women’s Shelter for three months. When she left, she was guided to a teacher who trained her to perform and teach ballroom dancing. Cynthia explains thather life since then has been committed to “Dancing with the Divine.”
