Hello! I’m Lena. Welcome to my writing website and higher calling—to carry the message of hope, healing, and recovery. I was a depressed, lost soul, and through the help of others, I found a new model of living that has profoundly changed my life for the better. I am indebted to those who guided me and were driven to pay it forward. The purpose of this space is to encourage others to look within, to help those suffering from loneliness, restlessness, and discontent, and to aid those struggling with anxiety, anger, fear, depression, addiction, trauma, mental illness, and suicidal ideation. I believe that when we honestly look at our behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and belief systems—and work with them—we can alleviate the causes of our suffering and bring joy and happiness.


I Looked to God for Enlightenment

I recalled a night even when I closed my eyes and saw what I can only describe as the brightest, most brilliant white light I have ever experienced. I lay in bed as the light hovered above me. I was terrified. I wasn’t dreaming or hallucinating, and I was not psychotic, but I was so scared that as my heart pounded, I stopped breathing on purpose, hoping the light would stop or go away. As I continued to look into the light, to try and see what it was or where it was coming from, the image of a face so bright appeared. I didn’t understand. I could not understand what was happening to me. Still terrified, I looked into the light. It was Jesus looking into me as the light of His image floated and drifted, and when I realized it, I was overwhelmed with so many catastrophic emotions. My mind couldn’t comprehend it. I couldn’t sleep. When I got out of bed the following day, and there was average daylight, and it was just a regular day, I put the experience aside. I knew it happened; I did not imagine it, but I could not fit it into logical reasoning. Another time I experienced lights radiating around me. I know I was seeing angels. The light was white and pure. It was the ultimate reality. Coming from the morning was complete, perfect peace, love, forgiveness, and beauty. The love I felt, and everything else existing in this light was unselfish and pure. I knew it could only come from Jesus. The light was love because Jesus truly is love. Then I saw inside my chest. My chest looked like a pitch-black room with the lights turned out. I could see the outline of my heart and how my heart was sitting in darkness. Yet, there was a beam of pure, white light bursting outward from a small piece of my heart like a ray of sunshine coming through a storm cloud. The light was filled with peace, love, and goodness. I knew Jesus was telling me that my heart was in darkness and that if I only let a small piece of Him shine through, there could be unimaginable peace. He broke me down and gave me a new breath of life.
