In this comprehensive work encompassing fifteen years of research and experience, the author takes you with her as she travels out of body to realms of light and darkness, discovering the mechanics of existence and the purpose and mission of our lives in this world. Taking with her the sacred writings and words of the prophets, saints, mystics and sages from many religions throughout time, the author weaves an intricate design which merges the teachings of the East and the West into a cohesive understanding.

I read this amazing piece of work a few years ago, and it has had an absolutely massive effect on my life and my understanding of the bigger reality which is out there. Marilynn Hughes takes us on a long journey wherein she describes through her many mystical experiences a process of purification of the soul. In sharing her experiences, we are given an account of an exploration of a much bigger reality than most of us have ever been made aware of. And as we are taken through the many layers of this multi dimensional reality we hear a very human story which explores past lives, purgatory, other worlds and non physical environments. Heavenly realms, hellish realms. This is a story of sinfulness, of virtue, of suffering, of joy and enlightenment. It is an exploration into territories which we have heard and read about for centuries from mystics and from the writings of the worlds ancient religions. Entwined within the story, the author inserts passages from the worlds greatest sacred texts, which are always appropriate to the subject matter in discussion and give the experiences added depth and meaning. I would thoroughly recommend this as it really was life changing for me and continues to act as a point of reference and inspiration. I am delighted to say that the audio version is beautifully produced and works perfectly for the style of the book. Five stars!
In the narrated Audible version of The Mysteries of the Redemption, listening Marilynn's voice is calming but is also helpful as it is as though she is speaking to you and not just at you the listener. The lessons demonstrated in the various mystical experiences she shares are priceless and often surreal. While one is urged to use these lessons as a map and to take the spiritual journey on their own, one is still able to vicariously experience the majesty and importance of these lessons.
What I love about Audible audiobooks, especially this one, is that I can have them playing while I'm doing work around the house, driving, sleeping, and in many other tasks.
"The author's astral travels, past lives, & guides"
This book made me feel like I was diving into someone's dreams. I am grateful that the author shares her experiences and thoughts.
I am also, at the same time, listening to Tom Campbell's audiobook My Big TOE and while both authors are sharing from their OBE explorations, Marilynn Hughes' astral OBE experiences in Mysteries of the Redemption are more a compilation of personal mystical experiences and discussions with her guides while Tom Campbell's My Big TOE is more a scientific examination and "big picture" guidebook explanation gleaned from decades of OBE explorations. The two books are polar opposites in presentation of the two authors' OBE experiences and as a listener it is fascinating to compare the two entirely different takes from OBE experiences.
In the early portion of Marilynn Hughes audio presentation, there was an interesting mention of a religious experience where she said there was a physicist observing and it made me wonder who of the various author physicists it might be. Tom Campbell? Fred Alan Wolf? Another physicist?
The book is not in chronological order or doesn't seem to have been organized into categories of similar ideas, thus the experiences she relate jump back and forth from past life experiences to discussions with guides or descriptions of journeys, adventures, and diverse places. However, it may not be possible or easy to organize personal narratives, experiences, jumps in lives and places.
Marilynn Hughes' OBE journeys and experience of the astral are from a religious point of view. In comparison to Tom Campbell's scientific point of view as a physicist who has gone OBE, this audio book is more dreamlike and mystical in presentation.
