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!

    Story
    "Good w some minor bumps"

    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.

    Story
    "Ok book, but missing a connection for the average person"

    Spoiler alert!


    Author is diagnosed with lymphoma, and decides not to treat it, after spending months treating it through Ayurvedic medicine. She decides against chemotherapy, which is her decision.

    As a middle class female who has struggled with chronic health issues for many years, I guess I am biased. To have the resources to leave work, travel internationally for yoga and alternative medicine masters, etc.... I wonder how many of us could heal. I believe her healing was indeed miraculous at the medical level, but at the spiritual level.....who wouldn't have experienced amazing insights?

    Although some of what she says rings true to me spiritually, there's a huge bias here that the average person simply wouldn't be able engage in, due to lack of resources.

    I am happy for her healing, but the nuggets of spiritual insight are available from many sources.

    "This book is changing!!!"

    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!

    "100% Uplifting"

    This is an incredibly beautiful book. From the story, through the writing, to the masterful narration by the author.

    I prefer positive literature that ultimately conveys the power of love, and this is a perfect example. My other reviews provide more examples and this is very special.

    I heard about it through Wayne Dyer who mentions it in his I Can See Clearly Now. He also narrates the foreword to this tome.

    Most highly recommended.

    "Not much NDE, Good Lessons & Answers on Afterlife"

    Compared to some other NDE books I have read, there was not as much stated detail. There also was much autobiographical information that I wasn't sure that was germaine to the story. However, the end of the book as well as the Q & A section was well worth the listen. That part I have listened to over and over.

    Story
    "A different kind of NDE"

    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.

    "Soul balm"

    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.

    Story
    "Quite good but it gets repetitive at the end"
    If you could sum up Dying to Be Me in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Difficult to make this into a film since its all spiritual concepts and beliefs.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Buy this and change your life"
    What did you love best about Dying to Be Me?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    yes and did

    Story
    "Takes a wonderful experience and misinterprets it"

    Anita has had an extraordinary experience, but like most of those who have an NDE, she interprets it entirely personally, which is obviously appropriate and unavoidable, but can mislead others. Sadly, she blames her culture entirely for her and her father's mistakes. Her premise that she finally bonded with her father because of a lack of culture during the NDE is laughable. Unfortunately she engages in offensive cultural stereotypes to play to a Western audience. And her constant use of "Oh Wow" seems fake. Frankly, while her story is remarkable, I disliked her personality.

    Story
    "Worth reading Many insights"

    Eloquence of the author enhanced the messages in this book. Much food for thought. And so well written/ expressed. I don't doubt for a minute Anita's experience was real. I would have enjoyed hearing more about the actual NDE. Some of what she said about her feelings of the meaning of being a human being after the NDE were repeated over & over. In a way that was a good reinforcer & illustrator of her experience & subsequent shift on her "take" of life. I fully understand that words are a lacking medium in which to convey her experiences. However less repetition of the changes the NDE wrought in her experience of living, & more staying in the story of the actual event would have even very interesting. I think this is a book of profound hope. I think Anita will make an intensely gifted teacher. I noticed she glossed over the role diet plays in modern day illnesses. I agree our inner self plays a major role; but physical factors & the importance of eating unprocessed food are equally of importance.

    "An inspirational perspective shifter"
    Would you listen to Dying to Be Me again? Why?

    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.


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

    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.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Moorjani's description of her near death experience (NDE) was one of the most compelling I have ever read.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Understand the truth of who you really are.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone interested in questioning the nature of reality, this book gives plenty of food for thought.

    "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.
