Dear Brothers and Sisters, Friends of Circle of Light:

Thank you with all of my heart for all of your beautiful expressions of Love and support for Yael and me and for the Messages from God at Circle of Light. You have held my hand in an intensely emotional moment and I am grateful. I am doing as well as can be expected. I am at peace knowing that Yael’s is living in the ‘All of Love’ that she wrote about so often. I am happy that she is no longer suffering in the body that had failed her. But the absence of her presence is so dearly missed. After loving and caring for her for over 30 years, my life is upside down.

A memorial service honoring Yael will be held on Sunday, February 18 in Eureka Springs, Arkansas at 2 P.M. at the First United Methodist Church at 195 Huntsville Rd. We would be so happy to see any of you who wish to join us in person at this tribute to our beloved Yael. Many of the hundreds of notes we received from you are being compiled into a booklet that will be distributed at that service and also soon placed on the website (Circle of Light).

We wish to assure you that the Messages from God will continue to arrive in your email.
We have years of Messages — hundreds of Messages – many that have never before been sent, in addition to many past Messages that are as beautiful as the day they were received through Yael. The new schedule for emailing Messages: a full Message will be sent every two weeks, and the short excerpts, the Messages of Love, will continue to arrive, two per week. We encourage you to share any of these on Facebook and other places, and with friends. Anyone wishing to be on the email list can sign up on the website. For sharing, we only ask for clear identification with Circle of Light. Many people are awakening at this time, and we hope to be able to share these Messages widely. This was Yael’s wish, and the Messages are her legacy to the world.

Some of you have asked whether Shanna is now here at Circle of Light. She is still in New Mexico, her new home, and has been working with us at a distance. For those who wish to contact her, her email is She will be in Eureka Springs for the memorial on February 18.

I want to acknowledge and thank the team of people who will have given strong support and will continue to help bring the Messages from God to you: Shanna in New Mexico, Adriaan van Spanje in the Netherlands, Brad Randall in Austin, Texas and Marc Quigley, my dear longtime friend and our computer expert and graphic artist who has been with Circle of Light from day one.

I had never experienced this ‘deathing’ process before at all. It was an amazing and gut wrenching experience. It was also a glorious and very personal one which has renewed the bond among ALL of us, drawing us together whether we are together physically or not. The process was way too short and way too long at the same time. But I knew in my heart that Yael was ready and not afraid, and that she is now POURING love to all of us now from the other side of that thin veil.

I want to also personally thank Talina and Rachel Dent, Terry and Jerry Hinton, Jim and Lorraine May, Karen Brooks, John and Rebecca Babbs and many others for their amazing support though the actual event of Yael’s passing.

Love to all of you from Doug
