Marshall Grayson reveals the spiritual journey he took in his moments of death

At 13-years old Marshall Grayson underwent open heart surgery, a common procedure that was met with a very uncommon result. While laid out on the table, Grayson’s heart stopped beating for four minutes. He was legally declared dead, but what the doctor didn’t know is that Grayson had never been more alive.

In those four minutes, Grayson experienced a spiritual awakening that imparted him with wisdom and understanding on the workings of the universe. Now, he brings to life a functional account of his spiritual journey in “It Is This I Am: The Inner Mentor.”

In “It Is This I Am,” Grayson shares the secrets to essence, a spiritual guide. It was essence that brought him to the knowledge that every individual is part of a collective whole moving towards God. Ignorance, hate and violence have spread because we negate to realize that each presence on Earth is part of a united spiritual body. Grayson supports his spiritual enlightenment with teachings from some of the world’s most popular religions and uses the various theological texts in to solidify his philosophy.

“In those four minutes of lifelessness, it seemed as if I was more aware then I had ever been while conscious,” Grayson said. “In that time, it seemed the everything, from the enormity of the universe to the nature of my very soul, was revealed to me. It Is This I Am takes you inside that time and shows what was exposed to me. That we are all part of a greater whole moving towards a greater good.”
