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!

A beautifully voiced message

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.

Became very philosophycal after the NDE,

If you could sum up Dying to Be Me in three words, what would they be?

Famtastocally unbelieavable

If you’ve listened to books by Anita Moorjani before, how does this one compare?

This was my first

Which character – as performed by Anita Moorjani – was your favorite?

Hersel

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

yes definitely

Any additional comments?

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.

This is the story of a miracle. There is no doubt

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.

Very Poorly Developed

Any additional comments?

This subject garners great interest; however, Hay House (perhaps due to the pressure from Wayne Dyer to publish this person rather than genuine excitement about a properly considered book) did not ensure that this book was compellingly written or at all engagingly performed, or even all that interesting on the whole. One has to wonder how far this book would have gotten if it had been submitted with all the others instead of insisted upon by Wayne Dyer, since it's not actually a very enjoyable read. Incredibly, this book manages to relay the most spell-bindingly fascinating of human experiences in a way that left me feeling nothing but unbelievably bored. It's ponderous and frustratingly vague about the author's experience, and there's a lot of filler about irrelevant life details that hold no interest. In addition, the author isn't a book reader. The reading is frustratingly slow, dull, flat, and plodding. Just because someone had an incredible experience doesn't mean the experience won't need to be crafted into a good book. Hay House should either have put more time into making this book better or opted out of publishing it. Major developmental and occasional copy errors only add to the book's disappointment. The poor publishing cheats the author, the readers, and most importantly, the story itself. But that's what usually happens when things aren't vetted in the normal way (or at least worked on until they make the grade). I wish I could say something better, but if a subject is worth the trouble of publishing, it's worth publishing decently, and Hay House really dropped the ball on this in my opinion. This is as fascinating a subject as one can get, and yet the book was so boring and poorly developed that it took me tremendous self-discipline to finish. I hate blasting a book, but this was such a let-down. Sorry to all involved.

LOVE this message!!

I absolutely adore books narrated by their own authors and this did not disappoint!! A simple but profound message that I find wildly reassuring and encouraging: BE you and ALLOW your life to UNFOLD. Yes!!

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.

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.

Wow!

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

It is a stunningly honest autobiography of an ordinary woman to whom an extraordinary experience occurred.

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

I can't think of another book that moved me so much as Anita Moojani's story. Other books contain spiritual truths but this one touched me in a very special way.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

It is hard to say, really, however, perhaps it was the lack of resistance that she had, whilst moving into a different dimension

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

How she described what happened to her;,particularly the all encompassing, unconditional love that she felt in that state of being

Any additional comments?

This is a must read book for anyone who is travelling on a spiritual path and exploring their inner light.
