This week I am talking to MK McDaniel about her book ‘Misfit in Hell to Heaven Expat: Lessons from a Dark Near-Death Experience and How to Avoid Hell in the Afterlife’.
Placed on a ventilator for lung failure in 1999, M.K. McDaniel fought for her life in a drug-induced coma for three weeks. Misfit In Hell To Heaven Expat is based on a story of M.K.’s experiences before, during, and after a Dark Near-Death Experience. Her family waited and prayed, totally unaware of the horrors M.K. was bravely facing and miserably enduring in a seemingly eternal hell, culminating in her eventual glimpse of heaven and chat with her deceased fiancé. But M.K. still had work to do on Earth. During her lengthy recovery, as M.K. reflected on the purpose of her experiences in the Afterlife, she recalled the tribulations of her family ancestors and their courage to survive.
If they could overcome their overwhelming obstacles, then so could she. As memories of former earthly hellish traumas surfaced and seemed to parallel her actual hell experiences, M.K. sought out others with the same story. She eventually found solace, hope, and understanding at International Association of Near-Death Studies meetings in Seattle. IANDS offered insights, camaraderie, and a joy she had nearly forgotten to be possible in this life. Uplifting, humorous, chilling, and engrossing, Misfit In Hell To Heaven Expat takes the reader by the hand to safely explore our human and otherworldly selves. Its gentle message will help the reader find their way along the bumpy, earthly road to eternity.
First-time author M. K. McDaniel makes her earthly home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The Puget Sound mountains, bays, flora, and fauna offer respite, peace, and a glimpse of the heaven she will one day return to.
M.K.’s haunting 1999 – 2000 Dark Near-Death Experience and resulting emotional trauma released its hold on her psyche when she answered the call and a gnawing need from within to share her message in book form.
Thanks to the Seattle IANDS group, M.K. gradually accepted her mission to face her NDE and ultimately embrace it as the pre-planned experience she chose. M.K. continues to attend IANDS meetings and annual conferences to connect with others who look forward to their heavenly home with joy.
Her gentle message of love and kindness in our daily lives includes listening to strangers on airplanes and looking deeply into the eyes of suffering souls.
