My name is Robert Julius Palasciano and I was murdered on November 29, 1990, the 333rd day of the year. The following chronicle is a factual account of how I died and journeyed to Heaven, the Most Glorious Place. In Heaven, I met Our Lady of Mercy, who saved me from a tragic death and gave me a wondrous gift with a message. Then She returned me to live once more. This is my story of personal revelation. It’s led me to understand the mystery of why Our Lady saved and sent me back. This book is about the questions we ask of God and why they aren’t answered as quickly and painlessly as we would like them to be. Perhaps, He allows us to endure hatred to understand what love truly is; to bear tremendous pain so we can fathom the ecstasy of life. This story is about faith, lost and found. It’s beautiful but it’s also horrific, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My journey for understanding has taken more than twenty years, and my goal is to share the wisdom I’ve gained to help survivors of traumatic events. I’m not a doctor. I’m an ordinary person who's experienced extraordinary events. I believe after twenty three years of coping through the various stages of mental trauma, that I’ve developed a certain expertise. I’ve learned how to relieve the pain and suffering that it brings to us. Specifically, I’ve learned how to relieve my powerful negative feelings of guilt and anger. I have also found new weapons against the influences of our devastating nightmares and I’d like to share all that I’ve learned with you. Since I returned from Heaven, more than twenty years ago, I’ve been guided down many tributaries and given many pieces of life changing wisdom. Together these experiences have coalesced into a magnificent understanding of my purpose in life. If you’re like me, then your mind also suffers from the evil that touched you when you were traumatized by another. Do you experience waking flashbacks and nightmares so vivid that you can’t function during the day as you once did? Does your mental fortitude crumble from even the slightest stress? If so, I invite you to listen to my Survivor’s Story of Faith which has taken me all the way From Anger to Enlightenment. This true story is about Trauma Induced Stress and is written by a survivor for survivors. It’s about anger and guilt, but also faith and forgiveness. This powerful book is about death and the Most Glorious Place called Heaven, as well as hell on earth. It shares a unique perspective inside the mind of a twenty-three year trauma survivor. It explains flashbacks, nightmares, and panic attacks and teaches survivors and their families a better way to live. It includes a step by step guide to a peaceful beginning of a new life, free of pain and anguish. How do you forgive the man who murdered you? I am a twenty-three year trauma survivor and writer. As a Bank Manager, I was shot in a brutal robbery. I died on the bank floor in a pool of my own blood, and what happened next was truly remarkable. The years to follow have sent me on this prolific journey in search of answers, possibly the same answers you are searching for. Have you ever wondered how to permanently unload your feelings of anger and guilt? Are you finally ready to be free from the consuming darkness, born from your insatiable need for vengeance? This is my Survivor’s Story of Faith. I invite you to open it and share what I have learned.
There is a higher presence for us all whether it be God, Grace or whatever resonates with you. Trust in your instincts and follow this path and you can never go wrong. This author (who happens to be a person I hope is can call a friend) shows us that everything happens for a higher reason we may not be able to understand but we can find peace if we trust in that fact. The words and message is simple and can speak to any age about any trauma. I loved the message and hope this book will help many.
