WILMINGTON, NC, June 03, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In an interview published on the Epoch Times website entitled "Dr. Bruce Grayson On Researching Near-Death Experiences at the University of Virginia", Dr. Grayson was quoted as saying, "As a psychiatrist, what's much more interesting to me is not the 'knock your socks off' part of the experience, but the after-effects, the way it changes people's lives. Psychiatrists and psychologists spend a lot of hard work trying to get people to make fairly small changes, and here in the flash of a second, people are totally transformed -- this is a powerful experience!"
Brian McLaughlin, author of 'A Flight Without Wings' gives us an intimate look at his NDE experience and the powerful effect that meeting his deceased father had on his life after his return.
Many books about the subject of NDE's glorify the experience or sensationalize the details. The end result can border on aggrandizement or at the very least sound like hype and fabrication. On the other hand the books by scientists take just the opposite approach - filled with charts, graphs and overt attempts to explain the experience as simple byproducts of chemicals released by the dying human brain. The end result is that readers can end up with more questions than answers. When all is said and done however, what both researchers and readers seek is one thing - real answers.
Brian McLaughlin's book about his near death experience stands apart from the rest. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment and no hidden agenda. While his book has a spiritual flavor certain, there is no preaching and no religious messages. It is his near-death experience, just as it happened.
McLaughlin states "As indicated by the above quotes and references, books about NDE s are being scrutinized more closely than ever due at least in part to the entertaining final product being printed. Robert Gottlieb stated in a lengthy article in The New York Review of Books 'To Heaven and Back' dated 10/23/2014, that he noticed the influence of additional writers. He stated '... and don't underestimate that with ' in the listing of the authors. He goes on to say for example 'I was struck by both it's grandiosity and it's obvious elements of wish fulfillment', suggesting that some of these stories have been engineered to be entertaining rather than informative."
"Nearing the end of the article he indicates that 'The recent spate of NDE books offers something more concrete: contemporary first person reportage'. Best if the Author is the one who had the experience and writes about it. The lack of embellishment in an NDE account by no means suggests something less profound. As simple as an event may appear through the words of a book, I can tell you with certainty that the experience of a real NDE becomes a defining moment in your life, with many benefits like heightened senses to explore and use in your life going forward."
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.
