Life After Death - NDE Expert Brian McLaughlin Offers An Answer To Life's Greatest Mystery

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

The loss of a loved one - the death of a child, a spouse who has died or a good friend who has suddenly passed on -  is undoubtedly the worst experience any human will be forced to endure. It is a universal form of suffering that cannot be avoided. Admit it or not, the question weighs heavily on everyone's mind, for one thing is certain - we will lose spouses. We will lose children. We will lose friends. And, at some point, they will lose us.

While this issue is brought into our consciousness daily by the news media's fascination with such events - Prince, David Bowie, Gene Wilder, Arnold Palmer, Justice Scalia, Carrie Fisher, etc - it doesn't really hit home until it hits home. It is then we are literally brought to our knees by grief. These events changes the focus and direction of one's life forever thereafter. The power of death is sickening. And it is something over which no human being has any control. "Is there life after death?" is the question on everybody's mind. But perhaps we should ask a different question:

Is it possible that it is all an illusion?

In Deepak Chopra's 'Life After Death' he puts forth the idea that at the time of death we cross over into a new phase of existence and that what we experience in the afterlife is based on our own current belief systems and expectations. Could that be true? And, if it is true, what purpose would grief serve then? If we knew beyond any doubt that our spouse, our child or our friend continued to exist on another plane - or in some form we could understand - how would that change our reaction to death? More importantly, how would it change the way we function in life?

Author Brian McLaughlin knows the answers to these questions. He hopes to offer some assurance to anyone who holds questions about the possibility of life after death. In his book and in his public appearances, he attempts to present a message that can provide some measure of comfort. He can do this because he has been there.

McLaughlin explains: “ In dealing with grief over the loss of a loved one, whether it be a spouse, other family member, good friend, etc., I certainly cannot erase the loss. I can however, answer some of the questions and concerns that I find most prevalent.

The most common of these is:  Is my child/loved one OK?  Are they lonely or scared? Do they feel happy? Do they miss me?  My experience has given me the answers.  The Heaven I experienced, and seeing my deceased father showed me that all is good in this place.  A feeling of total fulfillment and peace surround you, even to the point of not wanting to return to a life here.  Imagine just how powerful that is.

"These concerns appear to be the same for anyone.  Whether a celebrity, a great thinker, or an average person (like myself)...  The grief can be consuming. Should you allow yourself to believe in this ‘afterlife’, those issues may become ones of joyful anticipation of being reunited.

"Eric Clapton wrote a song about the loss of his son in ‘Tears In Heaven’, asking if he would know and recognize him in Heaven. Apparently performing this song still evokes emotion, and he has removed it from his concert playlist. To see it from where I stand brings a whole new perspective, and I can picture him performing that song with a big smile on the inside! 

"The point is, that no matter your social status, the pain and concerns are the same. Losing a loving family member or good friend leaves a void in our lives. I can only offer to make that void a little smaller.”

Brian's book about his near death experience, 'A Flight Without Wings' offers readers a look at the near death experience from an unbiased point of view. It is the presentation of the material that sets this book apart from the other books about the near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment and no hidden agenda. While his book has a spiritual flavor certainly, there is no preaching and no religious messages. It is his near-death experience, just as it happened.

McLaughlin's experience 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. It is that simple message he brings to his audience, both through his book and at his speaking engagements and in his media appearances.

Brian serves as co-host of the Chapters Rap Show on MadhouseTV.com, an Internet television show that is broadcast worldwide. He uses this forum to showcase people who make a difference.  Brian was chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in both the 2015 and 2016 Book Awards.

Reviews of 'A Flight Without Wings' have been overwhelmingly positive. Dr. Penny Sartori, author of 'The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences', said "This book will help others who have had an NDE to make sense of their experience and will also help those close to someone who has had an NDE because NDEs affect close family members and friends too."

Jack Magnus, a reviewer with Readers Favorite, called 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.”
