Close Calls with Death That Saved My Life A True Story
Perfect Bound Softcover(B/W)
www.miraclelovebook.com Every word in this memoir is true. C'ante Ishta, the author's pen name, is Lakota for "the Eye of the Heart." With this Eye, C'ante Ishta watches and listens as few human beings do, observing the signs and miracles so often missed. This is the amazing story of the synchronicities, miracles, and the White Buffalo Woman's angelic intervention that united C'ante Ishta with his soul mate from across the world. He says, "I had been prepared for open communication with the spirit world. The way God set up all the Karmic Circles in my life allowed me to see the connections between all of the seemingly insane experiences in my life. I am sure everyone has the same intricate connections in their lives, I am no different. I have simply been blessed to be given the opportunity to 'see my life flash before my eyes' in what has essentially been a seven-year-long near-death experience." This book is one of a kind in it's acknowledgement of the White Buffalo Woman as a powerful prophet, angelic personality and divine force that is positively influencing the course of the human experience in a joint effort with Jesus Christ to make World Peace a reality.
www.miraclelovebook.com My heart started making a cracking and crunching noise. You could literally hear it across the room. I went to the Hospital at eleven p.m. on Palm Sunday and, soon after; I was sent home with what the Emergency Room doctor said was a “heart infection / inflammation.” The next day another ER doctor called and said he reviewed my X-rays from the previous night and that what I actually had were two partially collapsed lungs that were crushing my heart. He said I needed to come back to the ER immediately, since I was at risk of dying if I even coughed or sneezed. I had to have two chest tubes inserted, in an attempt to save my life. I was given no guarantees. I was cut open right through the cartilage on each side of my chest, about four inches above the nipples, with a scalpel, so that tubes the size of pencils could be inserted. I refused anesthesia and pain killers. I wanted to be present if I was to take my final journey. I felt that scalpel pierce my chest cartilage, while suffering through that operation wide awake. Anyone who has read accounts of the famous “Sun Dance” will spot this operation’s resemblance to this initiatory ritual. I had been asking God for the opportunity to participate in a Sun Dance, one of the seven religious rites brought to the Lakota by White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan, and this was that opportunity. An important aspect of a religion that was illegal in the U.S.A until the Freedom of Religion Act in the 1970’s, the Sun Dance resembled a crucifixion, and here it was Easter time. 2,000 years ago a holy woman came from the spirit world to the Lakota Indians of the Dakota region in the Black Hills, also known as Paha Sapa, the “Heart of Everything That Is.” She brought the Sacred Pipe, C’anupa, at a time when the people were starving and the Buffalo were gone. She also brought seven sacred rites and a message of peace. She promised to return one day and bring peace to the world, saying she would also reclaim the pipe, which was a way to send prayers to the Creator, when the user of the pipe would no longer need it. She taught us to Live as a Walking Prayer. As she was leaving, her spirit transformed into a black Buffalo calf that rolled over, turning brownish red, yellow and then white. The holy woman came and left from the Heart of the World, the Black Hills, the heart of Mother Earth that is breaking and dying. She is the White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan, and when she came to me she healed my broken heart in both the physical and spiritual worlds. That was a long week; I had tubes in my chest and almost died a few times when the tubes became clogged with blood. I had to undergo the same operation on Saturday, again without any painkillers or anesthesia. This time the holes in my chest were made about twice as big, the size of a large marker, to let more air out, in the hope that my lungs would inflate. That was when the White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan, came to me around twelve midnight and gave me such peace that I was content to go home to Heaven with her. But since I had nearly died only three months earlier, and was given two second chances at life in one night, something in my heart told me I had a mission HERE. That is when Christ first came to me soon after midnight, during the opening minutes of the Millennium’s first Easter Sunday. Jesus stayed with me and talked with me, and at about one a.m. Jesus told me the doctors could not help me, only he could. At the moment when I truly believed he was there to give me my life back, I asked for his help, and my lungs finally inflated instantaneously. I found out a month or two later that Jesus Christ died when his lungs collapsed under the weight of his crucified body and crushed his heart. In essence, I was saved by Jesus Christ from dying of the same physical mechanism of death that killed him on the cross. I have the medical records and hospital reports to prove the uncanny time and date of my Easter hospital stay. “Karmic Circle” is a term I coined to describe synchronicities in my life that come full circle, where the beginning is directly linked to the end, and synchronistic dates and events are often intricately connected. It would take seven years for this Karmic Circle to complete itself. God was intervening, and allowing his Angels to intervene. He was doing so in such a way that would make the intervention of The White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan, as unmistakable as Christ’s intervention in that hospital room on Easter 2000. God has proven to me way beyond a reasonable doubt that The White Buffalo Woman and Jesus Christ have saved my life countless times in the past twenty-six years. She came into my life when I needed her most, when even Jesus’ Love was not enough to save me. When I say she saved me, I mean literally, in the physical sense, just as Christ saved me that Easter 2000. The signs, events, and facts combine to convince me, way beyond a reasonable doubt that The White Buffalo Woman and Jesus Christ are working together in the spiritual world. These two Major Prophets working together is a religious expression of Yin and Yang. One of the most powerful masculine religions of the world (the religion of Christ), is being complemented and enhanced by one of the most feminine and little-known religions of the world (the religion of the White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan). I used to ask why I was given these experiences. Now I am content just know that I have been given them, and I have accepted the responsibility of sharing them. As I wrote earlier, I had the experience, I am not the experience. This is God’s story that he has sent to me during this human experience here on Earth. Now he is sending them to you, through me. In telling these experiences I will say exactly what I mean, with no speculation, so there is less chance for misconstrued interpretation. I will not attempt to include any hidden messages, allusions, symbolism, or the like, without explaining my clear intent, to convey the fact that it is a Miracle I am alive. I thank God for my life and the opportunity to share the story of the spiritual and physical Second Coming of White Buffalo Woman, Pte San Win Yan and Jesus Christ in my life. My main purpose is to disprove the idea of “coincidences,” and assert the fact that God exists. Not only does he exist, but he is sending messages through synchronized events, Karmic Circles, messages demanding World Peace, Religious Unity and Global Human Rights. When I say he, I really mean him and her; God the Creator, of course, is both a male and female entity, like a married couple in Love. It is crazy to think one can exist without the other. Yang can only exist with Yin to complement and balance. I would also like to dissolve the illusion of death. Death is the most distorted illusion of the human experience. Ascension is a much more accurate term. We ascend to Heaven to live forever; we do not “die.” In addition, life in Heaven is NOT separate from life on Earth, and vice versa. I am alive today because of divine intervention. I have embraced all the major religions of the world, but I am not a “New-Ager.” I am one of God’s children, as we all are. Miracles are as prevalent today as they were in biblical times, and have always been. I have not counted the amount of times I have had my life saved by God’s direct intervention, but it is well over twenty times, probably much more. When I stopped wondering why I was spared, why my life was extended when so many others died, I realized the answer was right in front of me all along. After being saved by Jesus during the first minutes of the first Easter Sunday of the Millennium, I was able to save the lives of five people. God allowed me to remain on Earth, as an Angel doing his work. He knew I would abandon my ego, follow my heart, fulfill his wishes, live in his dream, and strive to find a way to promote World Peace and a unificati
