Witness to a Miracle
My name is Janet Lynn Smith Greco. I was born May 26, 1952, in Los Angeles,
California. This is my account of an experience with Amen Ra (Founder) and
the Summum Pyramid.

On June 5, 1988, I was attending a Sunday class at Summum. The
class began with a few announcements and a short meditation.
This Sunday felt no different than any other day. Mentally and
emotionally I was feeling very well. Even though I didn't sleep
too well the night before, I only felt a little tired.
Otherwise, I was pretty relaxed.
The class began with a discussion regarding how we as students of
Summum present ourselves as teachers to the public. The primary
focus of the discussion was aimed at our psychic reader and
hypnotherapist, but the discussion really included all of the
teachers which were present in the class. Amen Ra spoke to these
individuals and seemed to direct the conversation as if the
details only pertained to the therapist and psychic reader in
I did not feel stressed or uneasy about the comments being made
by Amen Ra, yet I began to feel a strange tightening sensation in
my throat. I had a very similar experience several years ago
when I ate some shellfish which was followed by a mild allergic
reaction. The shellfish had been eaten the night before, but the
reaction was at least twelve hours later. The reaction was a
swelling inside of my throat. I took a mild antihistamine and
the tightening began to ease, allowing me some relief. As I sat
there in class recalling the shellfish incident, I was trying to
remember if I had eaten something that had shellfish in it
without my knowing it. I was sure I had not eaten any unusual
foods, but my throat continued to tighten.
The thought began to race through my head, but I was not in a
state of panic at that time. I remained calm, but for the life
of me could not figure out what was happening to me. The class
had been going on now for at least twenty minutes, and the
sensation became worse. The tightness in my throat was
increasing, my palms were moist, and my heart rate had increased
considerably. Now at least twenty minutes into the class, I
noticed that my respiratory rate was much more rapid, and I felt
as if I could not catch my breath. I felt as if I could not take
in any more oxygen to adequately fill by lungs. Now I was at the
point of panic, but I was still sitting and looking around to see
if anyone else was acting strange or having the same sensations
that I was experiencing. I felt as if I was going to jump up and
run out of the pyramid, but no one seem to notice what I was
About thirty minutes from the initial feeling of tightness in my
throat, I thought I was going to die! Amen Ra asked me several
questions regarding the class that he was conducting, and I was
vaguely aware of giving some sort of answer. My panic was almost
to its peak, and I was ready to run from the room.
A few more minutes had passed, and Amen Ra asked me if I had any
difficulty breathing. I nodded yes to his question. Amen Ra
then asked if I felt as if my breath was taken away from me.
Again I answered yes. I was surprised that Amen Ra knew what was
going on with me during the class. It was if he had known all
along just what kind of condition I was in, and how I was having a
feeling of impending death.
Shortly after Amen Ra questioned me on my breathing, a few more
comments were made in the class. We then stopped for a short
break. I sat on the couch for a few minutes, and began to feel
more calm and as my breathing became much easier. I went outside
to get some fresh air, and asked Amen Ra what had just taken
place. He stated that there are certain times when
demonstrations are performed in the pyramid so that we may
witness unusual phenomenon. He said that the demonstrations
would illustrate a point to me. Amen Ra then asked me if I ever
felt as if I was unaware of what was going on during this entire
episode -- was I still able to hear, see, and think. I answered
yes to all of his questions. Amen Ra told me that there is a
very thin line between life and death. I experienced what is it
like to be so close to death, and that the true me was still
This demonstration illustrates that we truly do have an essence
within all of us, and that we must be able to experience it so
that we may know that our spirit truly exists.
As a witness to a miracle, I am sharing this information so that
we can understand that we truly do have an essence within all of
us, and that there truly is a fine line between life and death.
