In this truly inspirational audio book, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body began shutting down - overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience (NDE) where she realized her inherent worth... and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was released from the hospital within weeks - without a trace of cancer in her body!
Anita had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she was a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else’s expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself... and that there are miracles in the Universe that she’d never even imagined.
In Dying to Be Me, Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, “being love,” and the true magnificence of each and every human being!

Narration was excellent besides a few early chapters sounding echoey, as if they we done in a plain room instead of a recording room. Overall a beautiful lesson and message birthed from a miracle. Some of the explanations in the beginning were long winded and too elaborate. I understand why and all... because language is limited in description for this even. It just made me feel like it was forced or unbelievable at points. (as in a description of anything that carried on as such would). I do believe this story, however. I really gained the most out of the last 1/3 to 1/2 of this book. It connected with me nicely and I am trying to be more accepting of myself and not to be as harsh. Thank you.
I am 37 years old and have been on a spiritual pursuit since I was 17. Anita's message has touched me more profoundly than ANYTHING I have ever heard. This book has without a doubt changed the trajectory of my life. Thank you Anita!
The message is love yourself and enjoy life. Will this help us avoid disease? I hope so, but I'm not sure this will work for everyone, maybe it will work for the very elevated and centered souls. I agree with her comments regarding how we attract diseases ...it's usually fear, anger, stress. She received this message for a reason and she was encouraged to pass it on but it is up to the individual to digest and absorb it. You CAN heal yourself.
Refreshing, uplifting and wonderful! Anita has an important story to tell, and I am grateful that I listened. It is a treat to have her tell her message.
I recommend this book to those who crave meaning and clarity, but especially to anyone who is ready to heal and be whole again.
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
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).
Practicing Idealist, Dabbling Realist ;)
Anita Moorjani's graceful and positive voice tells her story of how her own thoughts and the judgmental expectations of others affected her health to the point of cancer and a near-death experience. Then, understanding through her near death experience her connectedness with all, her own thoughts were also the source of a quick and miraculous healing.
Her rational explanation of her story, along with her reasoned examination and explanation of her new viewpoint is told cleanly. There is no urgency in her tale to convert anyone to believe her, only a generous sharing so that anyone who is interested can learn and take from her life lesson anything that may help in their own journey.
This was my first
after the NDE, it became so philosophical, I cannot believe that good or bad, we just become part of the universe, maybe biased, but on the practical side of things, shouldnt criminals earn something cruel imposed to them in the after life.... this is where I cannot understand the concept of Anita. On the overall, the preface or foreword is good to have acknowledged divinity, which to my mind, a higher being than just space. The foreword said Anita agrees of the divine intervention, and yet does not believe in the "theory" that sinners are sure to be punished and do gooders enter the pearly gates.... still, in the end, I still have no idea of what waits at the after life.
Absolutely! Every friend! This was the most profoundly touching spiritual book I've read, and I've read MANY. Anita's story resonated with me at a core level. Changed me at a core level. Period. Unbelievably beautiful, truly touching, I found myself crying tears of joy throughout the listen.
Anita is the star...she's the only one I'd like to hear tell her amazing story.
She is humble, authentic, wise, courageous, inspiring!
Yes, I listened to it every chance I had til it was complete
If there is one audiobook I would seriously recommend to EVERYONE, it's this one.
This is an amazing story with a poignant message. Source wants us to realize some important things and used her to relay them. She delivers. Now I return to this book time and time again to contemplate the meaning for me.
"Inspiring and deeply healing"
This book was recommended to me by my mum who is a reiki healer.
For several months now I have been suffering from an as yet undiagnosed illness that came on out of the blue that can put me bed ridden for days and leave Drs scratching their heads due to my weird and wonderful symptoms.
I was of previously good health.
Listening to Anita has opened my eyes as to what may have opened the door to my mystery illness.
Listening to her speak and having several AH HA moments whilst listening when I was suffering from a particularly bad episode that can last for hours was extremely calming to me and moved my focus away from my symptoms to a feeling of hope and enlightenment.
This may sound like heavy stuff - I am a sceptic in many ways - if I can't feel it -or see it - it can't be - or can it?? After listening to this audio book and Anita's story I can't help but think that this has to be a way forward through illness. A lot of what she talks about really does strike a chord.
I listened to this in two sittings - I ll be listening again and probably again.
I highly recommend this
"A Fantastic book"
I like tho audio version of the book as I can listen as I do jobs around the house
I like real life stories
I enjoyed all of the book
Listen to the book you wont be disappointed.
"An inspirational perspective shifter"
I have listened to this book a few times now, and each time I hear something new that helps deepen my understanding of the remarkable truths in this book.
This book has a similar message to so many contemporary spiritual texts, albeit told from the perspective of a personal experience. The message is the same as that given by Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now, by Neale Donald Walsch in his Conversations with God, the Abraham-Hicks material, and many more besides.
Moorjani's description of her near death experience (NDE) was one of the most compelling I have ever read.
Understand the truth of who you really are.
For anyone interested in questioning the nature of reality, this book gives plenty of food for thought.
"Love it. Absolutely fantastic, easy to understand."
absolutely loved it. easy to read, great lessons. highly recommend.
Anita 's story moved me deeply,, we found ourselves in all her struggles.
"My soul rejoices!"
I just want to share this book with every person that I've ever met and cared for. I know that many people will not receive it in the same way as I have, but that in time, it may serve them well.
My consciousness began shifting four years ago and though it takes time, I feel that different people that I've met and books that I've read have helped facilitate my spiritual evolution.
This book may be a good starting point for people who are still searching for their answers in a world that offers us so many conflicting and confusing views on finding inner peace.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone.
I really enjoyed this life changing story and hope to adopt some of Anita's findings in my own life
As we all are.
It won't let me submit this without writing more. Very odd. Ignore this. Three words remain.
"A book every single person should read!"
Amazing and inspiring book in every sense! I think every single person on this planet should read it and practice it!
"Everyone should read this book!"
Honestly the best book I've ever read. It's inspiring and beautiful. I think everyone in the world should read it.
"An amazing history!"
Dying to be me is well written and well read, in my opinion. I really enjoyed listening to Anita relate her experience.
It gives a completely different perspective on our lives and life experience. It is presented in an accessible way that is not pushy.
