Their Stroy Matters with Sara Troy and her guests Dr. Penny Sartori and Kelly Walsh, on air from December 19th
Dr Penny Sartori (Near-Death Experience expert and academic), and NDE experiencer Kelly Walsh share in this interview about their unique double perspectives on NDEs in their groundbreaking new book: The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences: How the Messages of NDEs Positively Impact the World.
Penny and Kelly have brought together powerful stories from people from around the world, and across a vast range of backgrounds, all of whom have had their lives transformed for the better in some way after their NDEs, including Kelly herself. After years of trauma, Kelly tried to take her own life in 2009. She then had a near-death experience in which she felt divine love and connection, and heard the words ‘like-minded souls will collaborate to change the world’. This showed her how valuable her life is and how much she can do to benefit the world. Since then, she has been devoted to positivity and to helping children in need, most notably through her charity she founded (where all profits from the book will be donated).
This book brings together the best elements of questions about consciousness, life after death, and the cracks in our health and mental health care systems, alongside the personal, powerful, and ultimately positive real-life stories of ordinary people and their extraordinary experiences.
As a society, we are all taught to fear death, yet for those who have touched it, and returned to tell the tale, the message they’ve brought back is drastically different. Unconditional love, divine understanding, and true universal connection await us on the other side. We can all benefit from this message, without nearly having to die first; all we have to do is listen to what those who have had an NDE are trying to convey.
NDEs are often transformative, not only on an individual level, but on a collective level too. In The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences, NDE expert Dr. Penny Sartori and near death experiencer Kelly Walsh brings together a selection of inspiring stories from ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences. These have changed the course of their lives, empowered them to be their true selves, and show each and every one of them the power of love and acceptance.
The contributors range in their ages, backgrounds, beliefs, creeds, and careers, yet what ties them together is the remarkable metamorphoses in their lives after their NDEs. Some struggled to integrate back into regular life, and repressed their NDEs, whereas others felt so much love and joy during their NDEs that they actively wanted to experience another. Some had their marriages dissolve as their partners couldn’t understand what they had been through, and others found their soulmates having been empowered to finally believe that they deserve love. From
setting up support groups for other NDEers, to founding charities and programmes across the world, the unconditional love and interconnectedness experienced by all these people has led to them putting more positivity into the world.
Drawing extensively on her career as an intensive care nurse and on the results of her doctoral research into NDEs, Dr. Sartori examines the NDEs from an academic perspective, whilst Kelly Walsh draws on the knowledge of her own NDE from a spiritual perspective, offering a balanced viewpoint on this phenomenon. With their combined wisdom we learn about NDEs, and from them. With forewords by Dr. Mick Collins and Neale Donald Walsch, and contributions from esteemed medical professionals such as Dr. Bernie Siegel, MD, this book offers expert insight and credibility, alongside the heart-warming accounts by people from all walks of life who experienced life transformations after their NDEs.
The book describes how NDEs have helped some contributors overcome suicidal feelings, has led another to come to terms with their transgender identity, and it reveals the inadequacy of our health system that can wrongly perceive NDEs as mental health problems. While recent years have seen a dramatic change of attitude towards NDEs, they are still widely misunderstood, understudied, and not adequately acknowledged. This is a huge detriment, to those
who don’t receive proper support, and to the wider world, who are missing out on their beautiful messages of peace, love, and respect; Everyone is interconnected, and nobody has to fear death.
This book is crucial in transforming the way we perceive NDEs, consciousness, life after death, palliative care, a more compassionate healthcare system, and our universal human connection. It inspires people of all cultures and faiths to see how the love experienced during an NDE has the capacity to heal minds, bodies, and souls.
