Erica McKenzie – Dying to Fit In: A Near-Death Experience with God
April 15 @ 1:00 pm EDT - 2:30 pm EDT
1 PM Eastern Time, 10 AM Pacific, 6 PM in the UK, Sunday 5 AM in Auckland, NZ
Erica McKenzie, RN hid a lifelong battle with addiction and body image until it ended nearly 20 years ago when she collapsed to the floor unconscious. Surrounded by death, she went on to have an extraordinary Near-Death Experience (NDE), in Heaven, Hell and the in-between. Erica returned with a new mission but first she would endure many challenges that would test her faith and connection with God and which began with learning to love herself and heal her life. She spent days in a psychiatric facility after telling a doctor about her NDE. Without any previous history of mental illness, at age 31, she found herself on a list of anti-psychotic medications and separated from her children.
This medical treatment caused her to question the education protocol used when assessing experiences like the NDE in the healthcare system. She identified the need for an increase in education regarding such experiences and implementation of a spiritual component to healing protocol as a nursing student, and now years later as a patient.
Erica’s NDE profoundly transformed how she views life and death, and how she now lives her life.
Erica McKenzie’s journey taught her how to identify and eliminate potential “roadblocks” to healing from the after-effects of transformational life experiences. She combines the knowledge from her NDE with her background as a nurse to educate and encourage people to shift their perception of these experiences, viewing them as learning opportunities that if we choose, can become powerful tools of healing and awakening.
