NDEr and author of the Amazon bestseller, “How To Stop Negative Thoughts: What My Near Death Experience Taught Me About Mind Loops, Neuroscience, and Happiness,” and a contributing author to a new Amazon bestseller, “The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences: How the Messages of NDEs Can Positively Impact the World.”
She is the founder of The De-Looping Method that uses neuroscience to interrupt repetitive, negative thoughts. Barbara trains both individuals and corporations to stop worry, low self esteem, and other negative thinking patterns. She is also a musician, filmmaker, collage artist, and avid hiker.
Barbara Ireland’s near-death journey begins, in a way, with her singing in a pop-rock band in New York City, good enough to produce some albums. Although she was letting go on stage, Barbara began to have the uncomfortable feeling that something within her was stifling her. As her sense of inner imprisonment grew, Barbara realized she needed to do something to break out. She decided to attend a two week outdoor camp that would challenge her to the max and hopefully stretch her limits. It did.
At the end of her most challenging, grueling day Barbara found her life force gradually disappearing. That’s when she heard a beautiful voice ask if she could recall the conversation she’d had with her brother just a few weeks before. Yes. What was she thinking at the end of that conversation? In this way, while slowly dying, Barbara spent hours with this spiritual being going back in time, recalling moments from her entire life. Jumping ahead to the conclusion of the NDE Barbara realized that she was the one who had created the prison through a lifetime of negative thinking. The spiritual being used the portal of her NDE to reveal this.
Moving past the rest of her NDE we find Barbara returning to life, and spending years studying everything she could about the powers of thought from a welter of scientific and spiritual sources. From this Barbara created a nine step program to successfully end her negative thinking and to step out of her prison of thought.
There are other things Barbara learned from her near-death experience that she will describe at our Seattle IANDS meeting Saturday, Feb 10. And there are certainly other spiritual experiences she has had that she can touch on as well. But her primary discovery and message to us Saturday will be that our thoughts have the power to weave an invisible web that can gradually confine and stifle us. And we may not know it. With enough time at our meeting Barbara will lead us through some of the exercises she used to liberate herself.
