Rafaela Mihai is a medical doctor with a Master Degree in Emergency Medicine and now a Reiki teacher. The author was born in one of the biggest cities of Transylvania, a region of Romania, during the time of communism. She had very little spiritual or religious knowledge for most of her life. A series of spiritual events occurred in her childhood and during her school years, which she choose to ignore not knowing what they were.
During her AST exam she developed a phobia, with which she struggled during her college years. In her mid-twenties, she became a medical doctor. She craved something more than the everyday life, but she did not find it for three decades. She had to fall even deeper into the darkness before she could begin to rise. The author went on her first spiritual journey to John of God, in Abadiania, Brazil.
