A Story About Near Death Experiences: A Benevolent Virus by Frances O’Brien

A Benevolent Virus (O Books) is what author Frances O’Brien herself describes as a spiritual fiction book.

Factually based with fictional characters A Benevolent Virus conveys a spiritual message that is very compelling to read.

This truly is an accurate description of A Benevolent Virus.

Chronicling the Lives of Ann & Daniel

Frances O'BrienO’Brien takes the reader on a journey that chronicles the lives of two people who have had the misfortune—or fortune—to have near-death experiences, or NDE. Both Ann, a television reporter, and Daniel, a former Marine severely injured in Fallujah, have near-death experiences.

A Benevolent Virus explores not just what these experiences were like for both Ann and Daniel but seeks to understand how these rare experiences go on to impact the lives of those who live this rare phenomena, and what makes it happen to some people and not others.

As you read this twenty-five chapter, 146 page soft cover book you’ll get a perspective on the good and bad parts of having a near-death experience. You’ll also see how both Ann and Daniel attempt to cope with this life altering event that impacts their lives significantly.

Scientific Data and NDE

Not only is A Benevolent Virus an eye opening look into the lives of people who experience death—before they die—it is also a journey into what happens in death, what about these experiences are like, and what the science behind it all is revealing today.

O'Brien's A Benevolent VirusO’Brien reveals these facts and opinions through the eyes and lives of the “real” people who live again after they die. And in fact, there are many people living those lives. According to the Near Death Research Foundation, everyday in the United States 774 people have near-death experiences. And whether you believe in them or not, at one time or another most of us have at least wondered or contemplated the unknown of death and dying.

A Benevolent Virus is much a written parallel to Clint Eastwood’s movie Hereafter which stars Matt Damon and explores the impact of near-death experiences on the people’s lives that have them.

However, O’Brien goes on to explore a few more topics related to near-death experiences such as what she thinks happens when you die, what the science reveals about near-death experiences, and why she believes the skeptic community of science will embrace these experiences as real.

A Book Meant To Be Written

O’Brien’s inspiration for A Benevolent Virus came from her own innate curiosity into near-death experiences. She felt that this book was meant to be written and she was the one fortunate enough to bring it to fruition.

She explains,

A Benevolent Virus is a book that wanted to be written and I had the good fortune to bring the work to fruition. Although I have never had a near-death experience, I have always been something of a spiritual seeker. It was my own spiritual curiosity that led me to devour almost every book on the subject of near-death experiences.

In A Benevolent Virus O’Brien ingeniously brings this experience often overlooked of near-death experiences to life and light. If you have any interest in this phenomena or have ever pondered death and life then this book will thrill you.

Review of Anointed with Oil: The Power of Scent by Glenda Green

While reading Anointed with Oil: The Power of Scent by Glenda Green you will deepen your understanding between the relationship of essential oils and spirituality.

Glenda gives examples throughout history of different religious practices and the use of aromatic and plant-based oils and a long list of references from the Christian Bible.

Glenda has a deep love of Jesus. This relationship is the premise of her previous book, Love Without End, where she conveys messages she received from “Jeshua” during a heightened spiritual journey.

Anointed with Oil is no different, for there’s a lot of information on essential oils that she received through Jeshua’s spiritual guidance accompanied with references from the Bible.

Insight on How Essential Oils Affect Consciousness

Glenda Green's Essential Oil BlendsWhile reading Anointed with Oil you will ponder how essential oils and fragrances may affect our consciousness and how they are entwined with emotion and feeling; how our sense of smell is also associated with miracles.

Perhaps, aroma and scents are a gateway to deeper levels of conscious awareness providing a door to the higher realms.  Anointed with Oil may be a sacred practice that wishes to awaken our hearts and souls to a higher purpose beyond religious preferences.

Glenda explains her long journey with scent in this eighty-two-page book. But due to its small size don’t underestimate the value of the content. Even if you do not follow the teaching of Jesus, there is enough science and factual information that many other books on essential oils just don’t cover. Plus there is a real intent to use oils to expand consciousness. Included are many aromatic recipe blends and long list of oils that may just help balance various ailments and conditions that you will find quite helpful.

Essential Oil Facts

Some of the materials cover essential oil recipes for making your own sacred soaps, lotions, fragrances, bath salts, body scrubs, face scrubs, and other home spa treatments.  There is a whole section on the use of these heavenly oils to ward off illness, promote healing, and even make the home more harmonious.

Glenda shares many facts about essential oils, too, such as the minuscule size of their tiny molecules, which are capable of passing through the skin and into our cells where most substances can never reach.

Did you know that one drop of essential oil actually contains approximately forty million trillion molecules?

Special Spiritual Essential Oil Blends

You really can feel Glenda’s heart and desire to serve and help humanity become more heart based, consciously uplifted, and compassionate.

In the final chapters you’ll learn about a series of special blends that may just hold the key to invoking higher awareness.  Learn about Christ Scent, Compassion, Innocence, Forgiveness, Peace, Abundance, and Joy. Green goes on to add other sacred blends for guidance and inspiration such as Om, Love, and Holy Ground. She shares insight on how these blends were created and why she feels they are so very special.

Anointed with Oil Book ReviewEven with the religious tone found throughout Anointed with Oil, Glenda’s intent to share this information is clear that she wants her readers to use the wisdom in Anointed with Oil for their own rituals and spiritual preference. Whether you are a practicing Pagan, Buddhist, or just a nature lover, you’ll find references of value that you won’t find elsewhere. I am glad I have this book in my collection of aromatherapy and essential oil references.

Glenda has even made this great little book available as an eBook, too.

Top Spirituality Book Translated into 9 Languages: Love Without End by Glenda Green

Love Without End written by Glenda Green

Love Without End, Jesus Speaks is a true story and personal account of Glenda Green’s encounters and “conversations” with Jesus.

And although one would automatically think that this is a religious book it is not. This book, Love Without End, is a spiritual book that teaches the reader many of the “secrets” of life without any religious affiliations.

In this one of a kind, fifteen chapter, 410 page book, Green relates to her readers the conversations as well as revelations that were revealed to her during this time with Jesus. In fact, the book answers more than 400 questions, or more precise Love Without End relays Jesus’ answers to more than 400 often asked, rarely answered questions.

From Priest to Skeptics Love Without End is a Treasure

From priests to skeptics and everyone in between the reviews for Love Without End are extraordinary.

Citing Green’s honesty, clear, easy going account of her four month visit with Jesus beginning in 1992 as a huge draw, Love Without End is one of the most popular, well regarded spiritual books of all time.

This book is used in several university classes, cited by numerous spiritual leaders in their talks as well as their own books by the hundreds. In fact, Love Without End is one of the most quoted books in modern spiritual literature.

Love Without End provides information that bridges thousands of years. The messages that Jesus sends through this visit with Green (originally intended for Green also an accomplished artist to paint his portrait) has valuable insight and lessons that can be applied to daily life in our world here and now.

And although it may be a little difficult to believe or leave you questioning if this four month visit from Jesus (or Jeshua as it is pronounced in his native tongue) is real, Green suggests that despite your doubts you can (and almost undoubtedly will) come to learn and grow from the words you read within the pages of Love Without End.

Most feel this book can change your perspective on life, expand your consciousness and intuitive listening abilities, open your heart, while also acting as a spiritual guide book.

An Open is All You Need for Love Without End

Green is well prepared for skeptics and explains that many of the facts we now accept without question originally came into the open through fictitious stories. Although Green claims this is in no way fictitious the outcome is the same; the ability to gain invaluable insight into yourself, your life, and many of the deeper questions that plague our world by simply reading Love Without End.

This latest addition contains an additional eighty-eight pages that were not part of the previous twenty seven editions. In total there are now twenty eight editions of Love Without End not including the ones in nine languages other than English. This book is a phenomenon.

This book is a wealth of spiritual information that it’s hard to imagine Green could have ‘dreamed up’ on her own. Love Without End answers many of the questions we all have wondered (and been left with unanswered) from our earlier religious experiences.  It is an intense read and I often found myself only able to read a few pages or so before having to put it down and savor what I had just read or more accurately absorbed.

Meet Glenda Green: Painter, Spiritual Teacher, and Author

Green has her background in contemporary spirituality.

She teaches this and much of what she does teach comes from her continued relationship with Jesus. Her teachings are based on universal beliefs rather than affiliated with any religion.

In addition to being a world renowned spiritual leader Green is also an internationally famous and beloved artists. She even boasts paintings displayed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.

I encourage all interested in finding answers, or just another perspective on life and pure love to read Love Without End. Begin with an open mind, question if you must, but just keep reading and in the end I really think you’ll be glad that you did.
