When Ingrid Honkala was 3 years old she drowned in a tank of water and since then she’s been able to experience other dimensions of life. She was also gifted with the wise input of “Beings of Light” who gave her invaluable insights and assistance as she faced the challenges of growing up, falling in love, and finding her professional destiny as a research scientist and oceanographer.

 

Despite many hardships, she accomplished her dreams, becoming not just a successful marine scientist, world traveler, and a mom, but also a mentor and a giver of light. Through her compelling life adventure that journeys from her native Colombia to Europe and her eventual home in the United States — and from a deadly war zone to underwater explorations and a NASA research center — Ingrid reveals how any human experience can be illumined from within. If we are willing to pay attention to subtle signals, take our intuition seriously, and forgive our most challenging difficulties, anyone can experience a brightly guided life.

 

Throughout her life, Ingrid has been guided to meet and help many people on their journey to become aware of a deeper reality and reconnect with their inner wisdom.

 

Ingrid also wrote an autobiography: “A Brightly Guided Life: How a Scientist Learned to Hear her Inner Wisdom”; in which she reveals how after having a near death experience at the age of two, the first glimpses of heaven were revealed to her and the doors that allow her to communicate with Beings of Light were opened.
