The Woman in the Fifth Car Back

Caroline Myss






Caroline Myss
has lots of great stories. This one is my all-time favorite. I got chills hearing her tell it live at a seminar. This excerpt is from her wonderful book, Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can.









One of the most profound stories that I ever heard in a workshop was told by a woman who had been seriously injured in a car accident and had had a near-death experience—I’ll call her Maggie. Maggie was so shattered that she went out of her body, and in that state, floating above the scene of the accident, she could hear how people in cars behind were were responding to the accident. Some were deeply shaken by witnessing it, while others were saying things like, “Oh, Jesus, this is all I need! How long are we going to be stuck here?” But from the fifth car behind hers, she saw a beautiful swirl of light rising up into the ether and then right back down into her own body. She thought, ‘What’s going on there?” And just as she thought that, she was instantly next to the woman in that car, who was sending out a prayer for her. In that energetic state, in the midst of her near-death experience, Maggie got the license plate of that car and committed it to memory. She eventually came back into her body and was taken to the hospital. When she was fully recovered, she tracked down the woman who had prayed for her, and she showed up at her doorstep with a bouquet of flowers to say thank you.

If Maggie was telling the truth, and if the woman from the fifth car back verified this account when Maggie showed up at her door with a bouquet of flowers—and I realize that these are big “ifs” for some people—then what other proof do you need that prayer has an effect and that another dimension exists beyond what our senses can perceive?

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
