Mystical experiences make ordinary, extraordinary
The universe is a vibrant, dynamic, interactive participant in your daily life. Mystical experiences are nothing but an awareness of the extraordinary in the ordinary. Constant attention to the interplay of varying forces in the events in your life will reveal to you the play of the divine; the mystical in experiences that are dished out to you. It is a non-sensuous awareness that dissolves all boundaries and manifests as grace or whatever you may choose to call it..

What is this book about?
This is an autobiographical account of the extraordinary interventions in the author's life by mystical forces. All events narrated in this book are presented as they happened with no interpretations, philosophical ruminations or even comments. The reader must interpret the event in accordance with his/her own experience of life.
The book is written in a racy, lucid style and is a first person narrative that is the natural forte of autobiographies. The book begins with early childhood events that shaped the personality of the author and goes on to speak of visitations, visions, dreams and a host of other events that made ordinary events assume a mystical quality. The intensity of a prayer or a deep seated longing seems to activate the mystical and the universe seems to respond in myriad ways.

Who is this book for?
This book is for everyone. The believer, the non-believer, the atheist and the agnostic will find the book interesting. It is not a book about a particular religion or faith (though several words from Hindu mythology are used --that is because the author was born into a Hindu family and was brought up in the Hindu tradition). However, the book is about personal spiritual experiences of the divine and such experiences are common whatever the religion or faith one is born into. The atheist and agnostic may dismiss the narrated events as mere coincidences, the believers may see the hand of God. Either way, the book speaks to everyone in different ways and is a good read. The style of narration and the organization of the book holds the reader's attention and one cannot put the book down until one has finished with it!. Happy reading...

About the Author

Dr. Vanitha Vaidialingam is a retired civil servant, a management consultant, a mother of two, a grandmother of one, and a loving wife. She has now donned the avatar of a writer and finds that writing is something she loves and is very good at. Her racy style of writing in very simple English captures and holds the attention of the reader. She has written another book--a collection of psychological short stories titled "The War Within" which has won much acclaim from readers. "Close Encounters of the Mystical Kind" was originally published as a limited print edition and was immediately, completely sold out. The current edition has been published on online sites to make it easy for readers to obtain copies of this wonderful book.
Currently, she is focused on writing a number of children's books that would be appropriate for her grandson who is just learning to understand and appreciate stories. She has published a Tracing and Coloring book and two illustrated children's short fiction using AI tools and her skills with Illustrator, Photoshop, and other photo editing tools and a very vivid imagination.

Faith and beyond

Just completed reading this fascinating book.....
If you are on your spiritual journey then this book may have answers to many of your questions ..... You are likely to have the same feeling like the one the author's family would have felt when they found lost keys on a beach.......the book touches many topics - about many evolved
souls and spiritual guides( Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sathya Sai Baba, Shibendu Lahiri, Gayatri Swamigal, Narayani Amma, Sri Sri Ravishankar, to name a few ) Reiki, vivid dreams/ visions and their meanings, out of body experiences, past life regression, astral travel, death, paranormal, and I have to but admit that there were many episodes in the book which gave me goosebumps.....
When I read the last chapter, I was reminded of the last scene in the film ' The Polar Express' about faith.....and if you are one who had witnessed miracles in your life but brushed them as mere coincidences, you are sure to have second thoughts.
