My Story

"Our true nature is infinite love, compassion, and consciousness. My near-death experience (NDE) taught me how to bring these qualities into my life here on Earth. You too can learn how to transform your life using heaven's wisdom."

Nancy Rynes

Nancy Rynes is a spiritual explorer, making the path to a peace-filled life clearer for seekers the world over. Nancy is a leading voice for bringing eternal, spiritual wisdom into our lives on earth, developing our heart-centered intuition, and living a life of inspired creativity. Known for her fun, lighthearted, girl-next-door demeanor, Nancy teaches others how to live a more purposeful, joyful, and spiritually-inspired life.


Nancy was raised in a Christian household but moved away from those teachings by her early 20s. As a scientist, science writer, and corporate trainer, for over two decades Nancy aligned herself with the skepticism prevalent in so much of the scientific community. She remained an atheist until her life-changing bicycling accident and near-death experience (NDE). Now, Nancy is an avid spiritual seeker as well as practitioner of compassion, kindness, contemplative prayer, and present-moment awareness. 


Drawing on the transformational wisdom learned during her own NDE, she integrates the teachings of love, compassion, kindness, gratitude, and joy that form the foundation for a peace-filled, meaningful life.


Nancy believes that the road to true happiness starts with acting in love and gratitude: loving ourselves for who we truly are, loving others for the Divinity and creativity we each hold inside, and showing gratitude for our lives by living our core truths as fully and abundantly as possible. Her book Awakenings from the Light dives into these and other topics, giving the reader concrete examples of how to make spiritual wisdom a very real part of life on Earth. She has also authored Walking in the LightMessages from Heaven, and contributed to the book Awakened by Death.
