The Light Will Never Go Out

Posted in: A - Her Near Death Experiences by Pamela on July 05, 2014


I am now at home (February 4th) after being discharged from hospital.

On a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon, January 24th, 2010 ….

I fell fourteen (14) feet from the edge of a loft in the car garage, slipping off the top rung of the ladder straight onto the concrete floor below fracturing my skull, subcutaneous hematoma, head trauma with left epidural hematoma, cerebral contusions, hairline fracture of spine, fractured left wrist with 9 rib fractures and bruising all over my left side.

At some point after falling I somehow walked myself to the guesthouse I rented, with no memory of doing this either and can only assume I walked, and layed down on my bed. Maybe heaven bent and held my hand so I would not lose everything? I have come to find out I walked in a lucid state. The next awareness or remembering I have was opening my eyes slightly, and in a blurry state of vision saw blood all over my white comforter. I went out completely after that. There was noone on the property or living in the main house at this time, so I was alone.

What happened truly was a miracle. The landlords were in town (Sedona) and were across the valley at one of their other properties when the Mrs. had something intuitively and strongly telling her to “go back to the property!”, “go back to the property!”. So, she drove back to this property, walked to the guesthouse and heard moaning. She entered and found me lying on my bed.
If she had not come I surely would not be writing this.

She told me she tried to get me in the car but would not go as I threw up, then had to lay down. There was blood all over the place and now vomit. The Mrs. did not know what to do, so she called her husband on the cell phone. The next thing I remember briefly is a voice shouting, “She’s going to die! Call 911!”, before losing consciousness again. I found out later that what I was hearing was her husband over the cells speaker. He just happened to be a former ER Doctor and soon made his way over.

The Sedona Fire Department responded to the emergency call. The Mrs said I had five paramedics working on me. I was completely in a long gone state remembering none of this. Having no clue what happened. One of the paramedics began sleuthing it out and walked to the garage to discover blood on the floor under the loft next to the ladder and realized I must have fallen. I kept moaning and pulling my left wrist, so they cut the long sleeves off exposing the break. Shortly thereafter I was carried by stretcher to the ambulance, which, took me to the Sedona Medical Center where the extent of my injuries were discovered, as was the seriousness of the situation. I was immediately flown by helicopter North to Flagstaff Medical Center for emergency brain surgery.

They made the incision from the top of my head straight down to just below the top part of my left ear. A circle of my skull was cut out and removed around the fracture line so they could drain the blood from my brain. They then placed this circular piece of skull back in and secured it with four (4) tiny titanium ‘plates’ and ‘screws’. I had two neurosurgeons working on me first, and once I was stable, the orthopaedic surgeon performed his skills on my fractured wrist as a metal plate was inserted to hold the bone together for healing.

I am relaying what was told to me much later because I remember nothing and am very grateful for the love and care I received from everyone who helped. When I awoke in hospital there was noone familiar to me there. Not that I was looking for it but there were no family nor friends there. Only hospital staff who became my family. I am a quantum leaper, a floater, and positive thinker, so saw the only thing that mattered at this moment without ‘thought’. And that was ~ I was simply lying down in ICU in a room with people who were caring for me in the beginning stages of recovery. On some level I was completely gone. Out of my body. It was peaceful wherever I went though. The “form of matter” was the one in pain and only when I awoke in the hospital room did the pain of nine broken ribs make themselves known loud and clear! Of course in short time my father and a few friends visited. Many visited through the internet later on after my release and am grateful. Thank you for caring. All moving to recovery though for I have too much to do before I really fly …. from here.

“He who binds himself to a joy does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the moment as it flies,
Lives in eternity’s sunrise.”
~ William Blake

The healing is ongoing and an interesting ongoing journey this recovery has been. Many things unfolding and all is brilliantly good because there is nothing else but the good to have living within you, as hard and sometimes difficult as it has been too. This Fall was an experience that propelled me further into understandings I have held deep ‘within’, probably since beyond my birth, now blossoming. It is a gift of Life I shall not waste. It is like a closed window now opening. I am ever so grateful.

I just found out by my neurologist that my injury was in one of the most dangerous places it could have been in the brain. When he showed me the images it was very revealing. The hematoma (blood buildup) was squishing my brain. If it had pressed my brain just slightly further it would have hit the brain stem, meaning lights out for Pammy. Instantly. The gods were on my side for sure that day. Thank You, I am grateful.

Thank you all for being so sharing and caring with me. Especially my father, Carl Richards.
It meant and means alot.
Thank you to my landlords, The paramedic/firemen, Mark, Joe, David, Josh and Millan from the Sedona Fire Department and the entire medical crew for being there! You are valuable beyond measure.

And a big thank you to Patty Marlowe for her support and amazing love in my aftercare at home.
She has become a truly great friend. http://www.HeartfeltofSedona.com

Dare to Live every moment, as if it were your last.
Dance, not because you want to, but because you have to.
Purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.
It is to enjoy every step along the way.
Say what you were ever afraid to say.
Listen, when you did not think you ever would.
Slow down your breathing before ever speaking.
Love the very thing you felt your heart never could.
Look where thine eyes feared to seek.
Embrace All with forgiveness and understandings.
And in the end, merging into New Beginnings.
This shall be a mighty fine relief.


The incision along the fracture line.
They positioned the plates in my head
in North, South, East and West directions
so Pammy would not get lost 🙂


Getting the hardware out. All is good because we make it good!

Sitting in calm. Healing, creating new patterns and re-wiring ‘within’ my brain, for peace.



Healing ‘within’ my own little world, my brain that I am so protective of like a child.
Venturing beyond into the vast field of energy, into the lands of forever.
And the more I discover, the more I share.

If ever there was imagery to describe the world I have been in since having brain surgery,
This film “Ashes & Snow” would be it. Complete Harmony with All and No Fear.
Extraordinarily decent, graceful, profound, elegant and deep.

“I was borne by chance of America, I AM by Nature of ALL.”
“Life is not about what you ‘have’ to do. It is about what you ‘can’ do.”
“I live, I love, I cry, I laugh, I am alive. My heart beats for peace.”

The Light Will Never Go Out – UPDATE



To all my friends and family who have been so supportive I would like to share this with you.
For those that might not know the story and wish to?
Please click here: The Light Will Never Go Out

I went to the Fire Department yesterday (Tuesday 4-13-10) to meet and thank the crew that helped save my life on the afternoon of January 24th. I found out, by way of my landlords, that they were asking how I was as they did not even know if I survived or not?

It really was a happy moment for all of us and I could not thank them enough, I could not hug them enough as they filled me in on everything I had no memory of.

These guys do not get enough appreciation or recognition for what they do and this visit helped them to know just how important they are to this community.

The gentleman 2nd from the right with the hat (David) deduced what happened that day by walking to the car garage where he found blood on the concrete floor beneath the loft and next to the ladder realizing I must have fallen there. They were so kind and stayed with me until I was whisked away by helicopter to Flagstaff Medical Center for emergency brain surgery.

The ambulance we are in front of is the one they took me in to the Sedona Medical Center.
Much love to you all and many, many thank you’s for caring.

From Left to Right:
Millan Zorita, Jayson Coil (Battalion Chief), Joe Kinzel, Pamela, Josh Wells, David Rodriguez, Mark Beneitone


Much appreciation…
To everyone who is sending in thank-you’s to the Battalion Chief at the Sedona Fire Department.
They are receiving emails from around the world in gratitude for helping save the life of one girl.
You cannot put a price on this nor can I express what it was like to go through.
And incredibly happy to have come out the other side, to be alive, with new perspectives.
These men are invaluable and the love being sent their way now is invaluable,
for they don’t see this sort of attention very often. Thank You to All!


Free Your Mind and Remove Fear. The Shift is “Within”.


Responses from friends and family.
Thank you all for sharing a mystical, painful, yet magical time with me.
The importance of what is happening here is being felt within the hearts of many.
Please spread it (love) like a quiet wildfire as these kind words ignite plenty.

Thank you for saving Pamela’s life, this world would not be the same without her.
You guys are very special people!
The rest of society needs to hear much more about what you do on a regular basis,
which is probably taken for granted by most people.

Sincerely,
Jim Rodger

I am emailing from the UK to thank you for everything you did on January 24th
to save our dear friend Pamela Leigh-Richards.
She is an amazing soul and it very obviously was not her time to go.
The world would be just a little less loving and colourful without her here. So thank you guys.
When you go to work each day, you never really know who in the world
you’re going to be saving or helping or how far-reaching your work is.
So a big thank you from a film crew here in the UK who are very happy with what you do.
Well done.

Love and blessings,
Nikki, Mandy and Ben xx

I just want to thank and congratulate you and your team for saving Pamela.
I will soon be moving from Illinois to Sedona and it is comforting to know
you have such a dedicated and capable group in place.
My son is an EMT in Maine so I have some understanding of what you face.
Thanks and congratulations for a job well done.

To Jason and the entire crew who helped save the life of my daughter, Pamela Richards,
I want to take this opportunity to offer you my sincere thanks.
The timely and professional manner in which you responded to her injuries was, I’m sure,
the predominant factor that saved her life.
I have always regarded firemen as very special people, which you certainly are.
Risking your lives to save the lives of others puts you in the classification of
“The Bold and the Brave”. You are to be admired,
and my hat is off to all of you for a “Job Well Done”.
~ Carl Richards
___________________________________________________________________
Mr. Richards,
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to send this email.
I will pass your message on to the crews that helped your daughter.
I sincerely believe the paramedics and EMTs that we employ are some of the best.
I know your daughter’s visit to the station helped remind them of why they chose this profession.
Sincerely,
Jayson Coil
Battalion Chief

“If You Do Not Tell Your Story You Are Doing Humanity A Disservice”

This is from a dear friend, Bill Mortimer, who is moving to Sedona from Illinois
And was in town looking for homes when he shared this with me:

FYI – I was grabbing a bite at Jose’s Cafe a little while ago.
Two guys from Sedona Fire and Rescue came in.
I had the waitress give me their bill (anonymously)
and asked her to tell them after I left
that this was a small thanks for helping save your life.
The guy at the table next to me overheard and it made his day – random act of kindness.
None of this would have happened had you flown away.
~ Bill

See what happens when you open your heart and share the love within?
It is the simplest act of kindness that can spread with great affect.
Thank you Bill!

Dear Jayson and all of your crew, [Amazingly powerful story from Annie in England]

I would like to thank you all sincerely for the help that you gave to my dear friend Pamela
on the 24th January when she sustained her serious head injury after falling from her loft –
the world wouldn’t be the same without her and she has so much more to give
that we all need her to be here with us.

I only met Pam because of the help that she freely gave to my daughter four years back -she is the kind of person who spreads magic and truth and I am grateful to you all for all the work that you do.
Nothing is more special than being someone who serves and ‘gives’ without any expectation and that makes all of you guys very special too.

My daughter and I were also saved by a fire crew some 15 years ago here in the UK.
They said that the room that fire was in reached around 870 degrees
and with an old Victorian lathe and plaster ceiling they were amazed that it held
and that we survived. My daughter had her bedroom right above that inferno.

There but for the grace of God walk all of us and I pray that He walks with all of you.

From my own experience the only ‘things’ that survived our house fire
were a bible I received for passing my scripture exams,
a bible I received for being a bridesmaid,
a bible that was given my parents when they married
and a book of scriptures that is now 130 years old.
A pair of boots also survived as they were outside the back door.

Everything else in the house was consumed either by soot or fire
but those bibles didn’t even smell of anything and didn’t have a speck of dust on them.
I had about £15,000 worth of other books and they were all destroyed.
One of the bibles has a white leather cover and it still has the same with no cleaning whatsoever.
My ex-husband fell asleep whilst the fire consumed the house – he didn’t expect to
and it frightened him.
He expected to stay awake and that everything belonging to his ex-girlfriend
would be destroyed at the seat of the fire that he set
but his plan didn’t work because he fell asleep
and we all lost everything – excepting the bibles and one pair of boots…
and of course a great wife!

I have nothing material from the years of my life prior to that fire –
other than the boots and the bibles.
This never bothered me and has never bothered me since.
Life is about who we are and not what we have….

Just know that there are always people who do totally appreciate the work that you do.
It can easily seem as though no one cares anymore – there are people who do ….

Thank you to all of you again.

The Grace is yours

Annie,

I have received numerous emails in the past few days from Pamela’s friends and family.
They were all incredibly kind and touching.
Yours however, is the most inspiring and reminds me of how inconsequential
the stuff we acquire is when it comes down to what really matters in life.
Thank you for sharing your love of Pamela, your appreciation for the work we do,
and most of all your incredible firsthand experience.
I can tell you I will not forget and I thank you for taking the time to share your story with me.
I will pass your email onto the men of Sedona Fire who took care of Pamela.

Sincerely,
Jayson Coil
Battalion Chief
Sedona Fire District

“We read your personal story this morning. It was very emotional and touching.
You are a true walking miracle. Even when I met you the very first time I knew you were filled with the Holy Spirit. I don’t know your religious beliefs, but we know that God and his legion of angels were with you. Your mission on earth has a lot to be completed. You are like a soaring eagle.” Hugs Georgia

The gratitude, appreciation and love written on this page has been delivered into the flowing vastness of forever. To remain as a gift for others to see, how the little things one can do in life, truly can have great meaning.
Here I am handing my Thank You cards to the heros who helped save my life.



Probably you’ve heard mention of the butterfly effect; the idea that a butterfly’s flapping wings might create tiny changes in a dynamic system which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale phenomena. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different. What may appear to be the small, everyday choices are the ones that can be earth-changing.

We will always be alive no matter what we ‘think’.
The journeys and experiences are the necessaries it does so seem.
We save the world by saving ourselves, and in tandem …
We save the world by going hand in hand.
Life is so magnificent and even prophecies can be altered.
Life does not have to be the way its predicted
It can ‘be’ changed as the miracle of YOU happening.

I have to share the synchronicity of this video crossing my path today.Thank you Pamela Reynolds for sharing your story. An amazing lady. This story is showing me many things. Her Hematoma was in the middle near the brain stem, mine was just to the left in one of the most dangerous places it could be. I now know further why. How synchronistic she came to Phoenix, Arizona and her name is Pamela Reynolds. In viewing this have other things to share about what happens in these experiences.

I was flown by helicopter North to hospital. Had 2 neurosurgeons working on me. They cut my skull, drained the hematoma, secured it back in with 4 tiny titanium plates and screws, so I am a walking GPS! I have not been told much from my neuro, don’t really remember. But I know this … “Peace has no enemy, Love knows nothing else.”

We tend to perceive only what’s familiar. So when new discoveries open up unfamiliar worlds, they present us with a dilemma. To see new worlds accurately may require a radical step — the suspension of prior beliefs.

I AM a Brain In-Jury Survivor. Now re-wiring my desires.
It is all unfolding.
There is so much more to know and tis’ time to step outside the box and know you CAN!

The Butterfly Effect





When I arrived in Sedona, Arizona on February 3rd, 2008
there was one day while driving around I pulled over and decided to hike up “Thunder Mountain”.
The picture above is Thunder Mountain in the distance, courtesy of Guy Schmickle.

I did not have hiking shoes.
Do not ever let what you are wearing stop you from an experience like this.

Beautiful it was, as is everything here in the Red Rocks.
The land is extremely powerful and speaks loudly.

As I was walking up the mountain about the time the sun was setting around 4:30pm,
looking down at this beautiful Red Earth beneath my feet I said:
“Thank you for carrying me”.

What happened next was immediate.

As soon as I said those words, a BOLT of energy hit me so powerfully in the heart chakra area:

I dropped to my knees with my hands falling upon the earth
Tears rolled from my eyes while this energy was pouring through me.
Travelling through every part of my body as I became and felt almost cloudlike or fluid.
It was intense!

Everything around me was connecting and communicating with me all at once,
with a very loud sound as if I broke through some kind of dimensional portal or barrier.

I became ONE with the leaves, the dirt I was kneeling on, the rocks,
the birds, the trees, the wind, the sky, the sun, the moon, EVERYTHING!

The communication was not in a language that we know of.
It was in a form of energy I understood as I felt it with the dolphins in Egypt.
It was a transference of “knowing”.
It was as if an excitement was there saying “we have one that can see!”.
And it was so happy.
I now know, or rather feel, that what I was experiencing was the song of the spheres.
Each Creation has its own Song. The birds, the leaves, the rocks, the trees …
They were all singing to me, which, is why it sounded so loud.

It was way beyond what we call love and indescribable.

The POWER of it left me with an undeniable truth
that there is something far greater and we are not alone, ever.
The earth beneath our feet is a living breathing organism with a heartbeat.
She is alive, as we are. We must change our ways, turn ourselves inside out and do the different.
We must change direction and path now.
We must live in kindness with this earth and each other.
And as we respect her, it in turn, reflects respect, into our collective, connective Universe.
Her heartbeat will resonate in balance, in coherence and in harmony with ours.

The tears were not of sadness but of a knowing that touched my heart deeply.

We truly are all connected to the thread of love that exists within all of life that never left us.
It is people who choose to leave “love”.
And we have all done this as we dip in and out through experiences.
Diving to the depths of despair and rising to the heights of ecstasy within our heart and minds.
Alternating between the two at the speed of light.
And pretty soon, the valleys of despair become shallow, fewer and farther between.
You begin to ‘live’ in the Heart with understanding, compassion and gratitude. Never give up.
The world will thank you!

The pathway that I feel happening for all of us, is becoming ever so directed and clear.
What is being stated by Drunvalo blew me away, as it truly entered my heart when I heard.
For his description of the heart and mind is exactly what I have been experiencing
and sharing with a few close to me since The Fall,
although without the fine details for I did not know them in language. Just experiencing it.
So will share what I mean.
This is a personal journey I’m sharing, yet, at the same time,
because we are all connected, it is a collective journey.
And when a ‘singulars mind environment’ becomes aware of something
that can help the ‘plurals mind environment’, then share it from the heart with good intentions.
There is a very strong feeling that what I am awakening to,
and what I feel is the most important and relevant parts in the NOW,
have, and is, coming through what has always been an inate ‘knowing within’,
through experiences, through the fall and brain awakening, and tapping into the connection
between the heart and mind without polarity ‘thinking’.
We all have this ‘knowing’, it just gets muddied in the waters of ‘thought’.
It’s a ‘feel thing’ and has always been a challenge to put my finger on it to explain with words.
Now, it is unfolding before my very eyes, being validated and further becoming aware,
as I have been saying to people, that when you think about something,
as a desire from the mind, it must come from the heart.
For when the TWO come together as ONE, ‘meaning it from the heart’ and ‘intention from the brain/mind’,
is when you have, what I have considered and called, the 3rd Force of manifestation.

If we’re going to get there … we’re going to get there with a change of Heart”

FREEDOM AND JEFF ~

Posted in: Touching Your Heart by Pamela on October 30, 2008

Freedom and Jeff
Freedom and I have been together 10 years this summer.

She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings.

Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places .

She’s my baby.

When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken.

She was emaciated and covered in lice.

We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vets office.

From then on, I was always around her.

We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off,

and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in.

I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight;

and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes.

We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand.

It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week.

You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab,

and it looked like death was winning.

She was going to be put down that Friday,

and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon

I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday,

because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized;

but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear.

I went immediately back to her cage;

and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle.

She was ready to live.

I was just about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

We knew she could never fly, so the director asked me to glove train her.

I got her used to the glove, and then to jesses,

and we started doing education programs for schools in westernWashington .

We wound up in the newspapers, radio (believe it or not) and some TV .

Miracle Pets even did a show about us.

In the spring of 2000, I was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma.

I had stage 3, which is not good (one major organ plus everywhere),

so I wound up doing 8 months of chemo.

Lost the hair – the whole bit. I missed a lot of work.

When I felt good enough, I would go to Sarvey and take Freedom out for walks.

Freedom would also come to me in my dreams and help me fight the cancer.

This happened time and time again.

Fast forward to November 2000, the day after Thanksgiving, I went in for my last checkup.

I was told that if the cancer was not all gone after 8 rounds of chemo,

then my last option was a stem cell transplant.

Anyway, they did the tests; and I had to come back Monday for the results.

I went in Monday, and I was told that all the cancer was gone.

So the first thing I did was get up to Sarvey and take the big girl out for a walk.

It was misty and cold.

I went to her flight and jessed her up, and we went out front to the top of the hill.

I hadn’t said a word to Freedom, but somehow she knew.

She looked at me and wrapped both her wings around me

to where I could feel them pressing in on my back (I was engulfed in eagle wings),

and she touched my nose with her beak and stared into my eyes,

and we just stood there like that for I don’t know how long.

That was a magic moment.

We have been soul mates ever since she came in. This is a very special bird.

On a side note: I have had people who were sick come up to us when we are out,

and Freedom has some kind of hold on them.

I once had a guy who was terminal come up to us and I let him hold her.

His knees just about buckled and he swore he could feel her power course through his body.

I have so many stories like that.

I never forget the honor I have of being so close to such a magnificent spirit as Freedoms.

Hope you enjoy this.



Great Friends
