Fiercely Human

Jan 24, 2020

Tricia Barker experienced a profound near-death experience during her senior year of college at
the University of Austin after getting into a car wreck and going into surgery. At the time, Tricia
did not consider herself a religious or spiritual person in the least, but everything changed that
day. Her near-death experience story has been featured on I Survived: Beyond and Back, National
Geographic Magazine, Simple Grace Magazine, Women’s World Magazine, and The Doctor Oz Show.
Years after her Near-Death Experience, Tricia moved to South Korea to teach and experienced
deep sexual trauma when she was brutally raped, and then dismissed by law enforcement. In her
memoir, she dives deep into how her insights into life after death were instrumental in her ability
to heal her heart and her mind, and how the courage humans must exhibit to truly live in our
bodies is incredibly powerful. She wrote all about it in her memoir, Angelsin the OR: What Dying
Taught Me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation. Tricia also interviews healers and NDE-ers
on her YouTube Channel, “Be the Light of Your Own Healing.”

courageously and fulfill their most authentic desires. She is the creator of multiple group
programs, retreats, and transformational workshops, leading hundreds of truth-seekers toward

In this episode, we dive into:
● The details of Tricia’s NDE, including the verifiable details that would have been impossible
to know while she was unconscious in surgery.
● The mission Tricia received while in her NDE that defied her current path.
● The beings of light or “angels” that Tricia met in the OR and what they communicated to
● The experience of unconditional love, and why it makes her emotional to talk about even
to this day.
● The intuitive and energetic “gifts” that she returned with that sometimes she wished she
didn’t have.
● The gifts Tricia returned with and the healing she found in supporting her father as he
passed away.
● How she used her insight into life beyond the physical to help heal herself from sexual
trauma that occurred years later.
● The paradox found in understanding oneself as a spiritual being but still being in the
sometimes incredibly painful and difficult human experience.
● What living fiercely means to someone who has experienced death.
