The Death Of A Child - Author And NDE Expert Brian McLaughlin Hopes To Offer Reassurance To Grieving Parents

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 child is the most devastating loss imaginable. There can be no greater pain. It is an event that is, for some, beyond the ability to endure. It is a tragedy that respects no boundaries - it happens regardless of station or status. Eric Clapton brought the issue to light in his song “Tears In Heaven”, in which questions are posed about not knowing if the parent will know their child if they see him/her in Heaven. Is the loss permanent, the relationship broken forever? Author Brian McLaughlin knows the answers to those questions and he hopes to offer some assurance not only to Eric Clapton, but to all parents everywhere. In his book and in his public appearances, he attempts to give everyone, not just parents, a message can provide some measure of comfort.

"I have had the opportunity to speak to a a number of people who have experienced this loss and had the same questions", McLaughlin stated. "I was able to share my knowledge with them and bring some comfort to their lives by explaining what happened to me.  I saw and spoke to my deceased father who appeared to be 30 or so years younger than when he passed, yet I knew him right Dad , no question.  He knew me as well, and somehow knew to be there at that exact moment to greet me. We didn’t speak of how different we each looked. I had no mirror, so I didn’t know if my injuries were evident in my appearance or not.  The 'issues' we had between us here on earth were absent, and we only shared a few moments of purity that superseded  all else.  He then told me I had to go back."

"Comfort and peace in the grief process is not just for the average person like myself.  It is available to all, even to celebrities such as Eric Clapton who may come to realize that fame and fortune cannot provide the answers to the questions.  I have spent countless hours being frustrated by the fact that I have those answers and can unlock the doors of grief and sadness that plague them but, like ships that pass in the night, our worlds will likely not overlap, and so that grief and sadness lingers."

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, 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.”
