Its a good book about spirituality, I like that the writer is the narrator and she does a really good job. Repetitive at the end. It has a Q&A section which for me made no sense.
Difficult to make this into a film since its all spiritual concepts and beliefs.
The book at first is very rich, has a lot of depth and you want to keep on listening about her story, but then right in the middle it kinda stops and just starts to ramble about her spiritual experience like if it was the only answer in the world. It got a bit boring in the end. I enjoyed it a lot overall, don't get me wrong, but the last chapters where the same and the same and the Q&A section really took my by surprise, and not a good one. But the idea is great and the narration excellent.
and a penny for your thoughts
Anita's story is compelling for two reasons.
1) Unlike most near death stories which generally seem to be sudden (i.e. a car accident etc) and flooded with white light and images of loved ones - Anita was ravaged with cancer. Her death had been long time coming. Her organs had shut down so there is no confusion as to the miracle of her recovery, whatever the source.
2) Unlike most accounts of near death experiences, which seem to be "it felt wonderful" or "everyone I loved who had passed away was there" - Anita was able to describe and articulate what she LEARNED as well as what she experienced - and how she put it into practice resulting in life changes.
Anita's message that once we go back to the spiritual world - we know everything - hence, we don't need to spend or time on earthy trying to gain spiritual knowledge. We will know everything the moment we leave our physical bodies. We are supposed to just "be" here and now - THIS is the "show" - not the afterlife where there is no judgement. The spiritual world takes care of itself. Worry about being in our physical bodies.
yes and did
I loved Anita and her way of sharing her story. Even though she grew up on the other side of the world from me I felt like I could relate to her. Her message is so simple and yet so powerful. I have been telling everyone about this book since I "read" it.
Anita's honesty and her down to earth way of sharing her story. I loved how you feel like her friend after you read this book. She doesn't seem to have any agenda other than helping others.
Anita was great at narrating her own book. I think this is one of those books that is probably better as an audio book because it adds so much to the story to hear it in her own voice.
Yes, and I want to listen to it again. It's a message I need to hear over and over again!
This is one of the best books I've read in a while. Now if I can just figure out a way to apply her concepts in my busy life!
Interesting...it certainly must be amazing to have had such an experience and the writing is good, but some of the chapters make me cringe. I did find the questions about religion very interesting and thought provoking (that the afterlife is essentially areligious). But this is a women who turned down any conventional medical treatment for a treatable disease, then received chemotherapy and was cured. The medically related topics made me cringe (as a physician).
I love that this is read by Anita Moorjani herself. This book was written for me. I listened, my mind was opened to new possibilities, and then as I went on with life things would click into place. This book has brought me tremendous peace. I love Anita's final reminder to us all that she chose to be here, as we all have chosen to be here, and that life is a gift for us to be enjoyed. Listen to this book and you will understand this, and be liberated by it. Of all the books I have read on health, nutrition, spiritual development, about being in the present, etc etc etc, this one small, simple book has had the most affect on me. Thank you, Anita, for telling us your story.
This is an amazing story. More than just a good listen but a true experience. Anita tells the story as if she is currently going through it.
This book goes very well with Wayne Dyer's Divine Love.
This book as changed my life. I've never been interested in a topic like this before, but she recounts it with so much clarity that I'm looking into other similar stories now.
I have highly recommended this book to others. Anita reminds us of what we already KNOW deep down and need to keep re-member-ing. I could listen to chapter 7 and on over and over. I feel like I experienced the trip to the other side and it greatly reduces the fear and unknown, makes it an exciting journey to a new country to be anticipated, when the time comes, with excitement.
I loved hearing her deep involvement in the moment of watching a beautiful sunset, listening to the wind, letting delicious ice cream melt slowly on her tongue-the reminder to be HERE NOW totally in the moment and live it with JOY.
She has a beautiful expressive voice, easy to listen to.
Her reminders that we are Divinity within, our answers and power are within, to not give our power away to external judgments and forces. When we are ill to go within to explore the deeper inner imbalance tht is expressing in our outer body to get our attention. Breaking out of the idea it's all karma and we are being punished, or rewarded.
A very moving story I am grateful she shared with the synchronous help of the universe.
Yes,there are so many hidden gems in this story.
The description of the warehouse after someone turns on the light!
It will change my life! Thank you Anita for telling your story and doing it so thoroughly and well!
This book gave me another perspective on life. It is very powerful hearing the writer tell her own story about her NDE. I played this book for a friend who normally gets easily distracted and she was drawn into the story. I highly recommend this book! It has the potential, if you are willing, to cause you to reevaluate your life.
I would recommend this to any of my friends, but particularly people struggling with loss, or imminant loss.
Well, its kind of autobiographical and I loved Anita and her husband
I loved that this book was read by Anita herself, the story is so personal that it needed to be her.
When Anita decided to come back, leaving her wonderful experience behind, I felt so grateful to her.. grateful that she was able to share with me.
