Publisher's Summary

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!

SImply Amazing

I attended a Wayne Dyer lecture last year and he spent alot of time talking about Anita's story. I got home and watched her youtube interviews and couldn't wait to get the book. I purchased the Kindle edition and read it while waiting for an audiobook. I do not write reviews on books, but I feel this is some of the most important work to come out in a long time. Anyone wanting to understand and discover who and what we really are, and the root cause of our problems need to read this book. Anita simplifies a very complex concept, and masterfully tells of the pain and discovery she experienced in her life. Her explanation of parallel lives and the reason we think in successive lives is masterfully done. I have read this and now listened 3 times. This has become a staple of my collection.

Inspiring And Comforting Account Of Death

Would you listen to Dying to Be Me again? Why?

Yes, but only the part about her description of her near death experience. I found the rest of the book to be preachy and full of platitudes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anita was pretty much the only character.

Have you listened to any of Anita Moorjani’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Overall this is well worth getting. Anita's beautiful description of her near death experience alone is worth buying it for. I thought it was weird that so many reviews mentioned her exception command of the English language, but as I listened I found myself appreciating it as well. Her description of the event is incredible. The rest of the book was too vague, new age, and full of platitudes for me, but the first half more than made up for that. This is well worth getting.

What if......?

I listened to this book twice. There is a vast cavern of insight and once just wasn't enough to process it all. There are other books out there describing 'Near Death Experience' , but this one can be verified - - including an ultimate cancer recovery from the brink of death - - and the awareness of events happening beyond the body's resting place. I found this author to be credible and articulate. My favorite part of this book is the ending when she answers questions submitted to her. My truth resonated with each answer. I found myself repeating "yes" "yes" "yes!"

What if......all of humanity could adopt this type of consciousness? What if we could all suspend judgment and allow others to be who they are? What if we could abolish fear and the consequences of it?

I recommend this book to those with open minds.....or venturing into 'open mind territory'.

Very Insightful!

What did you love best about Dying to Be Me?

This is a really good audio book. Moorjani's experience really makes me reflect deeply on the way my thoughts, which generate emotions, effect my health and my perception of my life. Her experience of the "after-life" or non-local realm or heaven or whatever term you want to use gave me a lot to think about. It certainly put a different perspective on these things than I had heard before. I found it fascinating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dying to Be Me?

Her understanding that instead of past lives, we are living parallel lives- with everything happening at once.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The question and answer section sometimes didn't flow linearly, which was disorienting at times.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very moved by the fact that Moorjani felt she wasn't meeting the expectations of her multi-cultures and how these expectations effected her long-term self-confidence and ultimately her health.

Any additional comments?

This is a fascinating book.

Literally Changed My LIfe

Would you consider the audio edition of Dying to Be Me to be better than the print version?

I love listening to Anita. Listening to her accent connected me more to her life and culture. She has such a lovely, calm way of speaking.

What did you like best about this story?

What Anita experienced was profound and I feel that her just sharing it with "me" lead me to some of the realizations she experienced without such drastic measures.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book gave me hope and clarity.

Any additional comments?

I have already made huge changes in my life to allow it to be more about what I want and need and not what is expected of me. I continue to allow even more to come to me. "Allow" is my new favorite word.

For all who experience a major illness

An arresting near death experience told with brilliant insight and perspective, Dying to Be Me is not merely one woman's story, but a story about and for many of us who have faced or are facing life-threatening illness. The understanding Mrs. Moorjani gained can help all of us look to ourselves for answers about our illness. She explains how our views of ourselves determine our emotional and physical states of being, including determining our place on the illness/wellness continuum.

This is a remarkable book for its honesty, clarity, and for its respectfulness and depth of understanding on a subject often veiled with misunderstanding and confusion. The topic of near death experiences or NDE, is often rejected by the scientific community for lack of methodically obtained evidence to prove its occurrence. While proof of Ms. Moorjani's NDE may not be possible, her rapid healing response following it, which was documented, could not have been explained by the chemotherapy she received.

It is true that while she experienced organ failure, her body was supported by fluids and other palliative measures. However, while her cure does not prove that her NDE was the sole or even major cause of her rapid cure, there is as yet no other explanation for the fact that she went from being assumed by the doctors as comatose and all but dead to becoming conscious and cured.

I went from completely doubting that any NDE could actually result in healing from cancer to realizing there are many things that science lacks the means to explain. In addition, what Ms. Moorjani wrote will help many others feel empowered to take charge of their illness and look into ways their views of themselves are determining aspects of their illnesses or their responses to their illness.

Engaging and Transforming

Where does Dying to Be Me rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

It ranks among the most unique to present a controversial topic in an authentic manner backing it up with science and experiential information.

What other book might you compare Dying to Be Me to and why?

The Secret and other type of books that endeavor to help people connect, but lead pretty much to "wishful thinking." "Dying to be Me" is different...I think it really comes closer than these other books to the key to this connection and releasing ourselves from disease and turmoil.

Have you listened to any of Anita Moorjani???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I believe this is her first. : )

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many in terms how she said things and feeling within myself my own healing.

Any additional comments?

This book differs a bit from some of the other near-death stories so is worth reading. It's encouraging and uplifting and leaves one with a sense of control over their own destiny. Well worth consideration.

Dying Died on Me..

Would you try another book written by Anita Moorjani or narrated by Anita Moorjani?

I doubt if I would listen to another of Anita's books. Although the subject is out of this world interesting, I got bored quite quickly along the way. <br/>I cannot put my finger on why I find the book tedious but I suspect that I have read too many self help books over the years and when I heard Wayne Dwyer in the foreword my heart sank...

What was most disappointing about Anita Moorjani’s story?

It was just too long. All Anita had to say could in my opinion have been said in half the time or less.

What aspect of Anita Moorjani’s performance might you have changed?

I am sure Anita Moorjani performs really good. She just did not catch my heart - but I stayed with her to the end and I am grateful for the story she has told.

With Love

Anita has a way of portraying her story that she brings you in to the very reality of her surroundings from her early childhood with the scene from her window out on to the street with the passing teams and on to the bustle of the market place she used to enjoy going to. She brings the listener (As I have the Audible version of her book) into the very essence of what she went through both in suffering and through her transcending her suffering to the other realm. She has the ability to fill the listener with the joy of knowing what we can all expect on the other side so to speak and she has done it all “With Love” for her fellow spiritual brothers and sisters so that we too can all share in the joy and ecstasy of this truth.

Love you Anita for sharing
Thank you

Truly amazing, must read!

This is the best of all I came across so far, and if you listen/read with open mind, you will not simply enjoy every bit of it but unknowingly you will start changing for your own good.
I've read few other spiritual books in the past and mostly this in line with all other similar books.
I strongly believe the message the author tried to convey is simply the true secret towards our life.
I don't doubt about her NDE at all and the author did amazing job to write everything together in this fantastic book, I would highly recommend this book to everyone!

Love, love, love this story! Thank you Anita for sharing your experience and thank you Wayne for pursuing this once you heard about Anita's NDE. I needed this so much at this time in my own life, not because I am ill but to remind me of what I also always felt to be true....that I must have a respect and love for myself first and to always see this as the most important thing I can do for anyone else in my life. Forever grateful, Susan 💕

Over the past few years I have heard about the notion Anita talks about in this book.
The way Anita describes her experience and gives advice in this book seemed to make innate sense to me.
I have been recommending everyone read or listen to this book, even before I had finished, because I believe it is something that everyone should hear!
