We are pleased to announce our speaker for our November 28th IANDS meeting will be Erica McKenzie. In 2002, Erica McKenzie had her NDE. She was 31 years old. Ridiculed as a pre-teen for her appearance, Erica turned to bulimia and diet pills as a means to fit in with the other girls. All she wanted was to be liked and accepted by her classmates. College was worse and she turned to the Class IV narcotic, Phentermine. While the pills gave her the endurance to be everything to everyone, Erica barely slept or ate. She kept her diet pill secret from her family, but the drug took its toll on her health. Her nine year addiction was killing her. Her heart palpitations and difficulty breathing ended one day in the middle of a conversation when she collapsed to the floor unconscious.
Erica left her body. She floated up to the ceiling, and from there watched paramedics take her body to the ambulance. Then she went through a tunnel made of bright white Light. “I felt unconditional love, and knew that I was going Home.”
Toward the end of the tunnel, “I saw a brilliant golden Light. I merged with the Light yet stayed separate from it at the same time. The Light was all loving and communicated to me that It was God. I asked many questions, and received knowledge telepathically. I saw Heaven as a planet. I saw the earth in flames. I experienced the edge of hell.”
There were two life reviews, as if on a movie screen. In the first, she saw the things she had thought were significant. In the second, she saw the things that God thought were significant: moments of love and kindness. Then she learned about the rippling effect of our words and actions. She saw that each person was given unique gifts to contribute on their earthly journey. She discovered that beauty is internal and lies within our hearts, yet Erica returned to discover that once again she is harshly judged for her looks.
Toward the end of her NDE God said, “Child, you are not staying. Your mission is on earth. Remember, you work for me now.” She did not want to go, but had to obey. She returned with the ability to deliver messages from God to help people embrace their uniqueness and aid in their healing. Erica has spent the past eleven years dedicated delivering those messages.
