What The Afterlife Is Like - Award Winning Author Brian McLaughlin Offers A First Person Account In 'A Flight Without Wings - My Experience With Heaven'

McLaughlin's book about his NDE details his totally unique near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment, no preaching and no hidden agenda

What is the afterlife like? This question has plagued humanity since the beginning. That question has never really been answered because nobody has ever come back from death to tell us. Until recently. Due to advances in medical technology we now have a number of people who have returned after being declared dead. So we need only to ask them, and we'll have a definitive answer, once and for all.

Not so. For if we were to read ten books on the subject, we would end up with ten very different answers. No two descriptions seem to be the same.

Some books, like 'Saved By The Light', paint a picture that is decidedly Christian in nature. Others like 'Proof of Heaven' follow a slightly more scientific path, mixed with spirituality. Some books, written by researchers and based in hard science, offer a different explanation, explaining that the near death experience is simply created by the dying brain, or that conscious experience is still possible though the brain shows no evidence of activity. All of these contradictory positions considered, will we ever really know what the afterlife is like?

Perhaps the near death experience is different for everyone. Is it possible that an individual's NDE is based on their own unique life experience? Is there just one afterlife, one experience for all, or are there many different versions, each unique to the individual? Based on the sheer number of varying accounts, the latter is most likely true.

Brian McLaughlin's book about his near death experience, 'A Flight Without Wings', is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment and no hidden agenda. Religion is not the same as spirituality so, while his book has a spiritual flavor, there is no preaching. There is no need to prove anything to anybody. It is instead his story, just as it happened.

McLaughlin died during a trip to Mexico and experienced his own NDE.  That event changed the course of his life forever.  It instilled in him what we all seek - certainty about life after death. And with that a peace of mind that can never be shaken, nor can it be doubted. His near death experience brought a sense of clarity. It brought a sense of real, lasting peace. He now knows with certainty that we exist forever.

“Speaking to someone who has had a near death experience is likely the best way to have your questions answered," McLaughlin stated. "Eyewitness accounts, although they may vary, can give a well rounded vision of the afterlife.

Formal studies of NDEs organize the different accounts and compare the common threads and also the differences. These conclusions are generally based on talking to people who have had such an experience and were willing to share. I would guess that it is more likely than not that the vision of the event itself is influenced by a lifetime of suggestion.  Each individual has stored an expectation of what Heaven is, and that may translate into the descriptions that they share.

I tried to be very generic in my presentation, and even admitted that my pre-conceived notions of what to expect weren’t met.  That’s not to say that I found the experience lacking for fulfillment. There was more than enough to make it profound and compelling.  It just wasn’t what I envisioned, but far surpassed any benefits I anticipated.”

Brian McLaughlin was chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in 2015. Reviews of 'A Flight Without Wings' have been overwhelmingly positive. Jack Magnus, a reviewer with Readers Favorite, call the book a "well written and moving memoir that neither delves into the fanciful or dogmatic"..."Well worth reading, and is highly recommended." Another stated, "Being a mother who lost her only child I found it to be a great comfort to me." Another said, "I have read many accounts such as these, but this beautifully written account simply touched my heart in ways that previous ones have not."

Mark Feuerstein, Actor (Royal Pains, USA Network) wrote: “I have read it and I think it’s an inspiring tale of deep insight and so personal and yet so universal . . . such profound perspective.”
