Today my guest is Danny Bader, author of Back from Heaven’s Front Porch. Published in 2012, the book is a fictional account of a real life experience that Danny had at age 28. While working on a roof with his friend, a ladder they were moving touched a high voltage wire and they were both electrocuted. Danny survived but his friend, a father of 3, was not so fortunate.
The experience of what Danny’s calls “finding himself on the other side” and losing his friend to the accident were profound and have changed the course of his life. He experienced a deep depression and had thoughts of suicide, feeling he was somehow responsible for what happened, even though no one blamed him but himself.
When knocked to the ground from the electricity, Danny says he felt a surge and then a peace – he knew he was dying. Then, his soul left his body and he was joined together with a peaceful, loving presence. Danny had been given a choice to either go back to his body or stay where he was. His first thoughts were what would happen to his mother and present-wife, and with that he regained consciousness.
Over the past 20 years, Danny’s experience has informed him to become an international motivational speaker, an executive coach and author. He has developed a 5-step self-improvement model called Jakrabit, to assist others in realizing their most fulfilled and happiest selves!
