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!

    "Amazing!!!"

    What a gift this author is. I am pleased that I allowed myself to have this gift. I want to share what I learned with everyone, not through preaching but through fearlessly being myself and allowing others to do the same in my presence.

    "Excellent"

    I've always wondered about NDEs from a non-American perspective. Anita raised in both Eastern and Western religious environments provides an excellent comparison and contrast of the NDE experience. On top of all that, she tells a great story!

    "It touch me in some many ways..."

    I loved this book from the beginning. My mom died last year from cancer. She had Anita's same cancer back when she was 19 and God gave her the opportunity to get married and have kids although the doctors told her she had one year to live... Well, she lived almost 45 more years. But what I have heard about her from the people who knew her back then, was that she enjoyed life like nobody else. I am now with cancer and this book gave me faith and purpose. It is nice to hear what I have being reading about for years in a real story.

    "Great but could be better organized"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dying to Be Me to be better than the print version?

    Certainly as Anita recites with emotions and feelings.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anita Moorjani? Why or why not?

    Yes, there has been several points that need clarifications


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

    NDE like you have never experienced it


    Any additional comments?

    Please read my review on my blog:
    http://mouniraswad.blogspot.ca/2016/09/book-review-dying-to-be-me.html

    Reason for return and healing is to forgive ones self
    Life here is the most desirable state for me at this time
    Unconditional self love that eliminated fear.
    Cancer was the product of fear
    To live life from Joy instead of fear
    Used to caught up in doing, achieving and driven by fear, selfish and not good enough
    Came back to be, everything come from love, follow my heart
    To discover my own individual path
    I used to control my thoughts when I feel negativity, but the truth is to be truthful to ones self
    Do things that make us happy and bring the best of us
    our purpose to allow ourselves to be our magnificent self
    Self-awareness is different from thinking positive
    Awareness doesn't need defending
    Ones point of view/ Belief system Don't defend your point of view or belief as this will make you reluctant to let go even when our belief don't serve us anymore
    Accept that my understanding is incomplete to allow more into my life and open one to infinite possibilities
    Suspend belief and disbelief to experience most clarity
    Asking for certainly is hindrance to accept greater level of awareness
    on Sickness & life Sickness not necessarily our fault but our biology responds to our awareness, our surrounding do too
    Don't live to other expectation of perfection, instead live to what life simply allow you to be
    When you let go, you work with with life not against it
    The important of self love, especially at times of difficulties,
    on Love Lesson that saved my life: Realize that you are love rather than giving and receiving too transcend dualities, there is no separation between us, if you care about one self, you care about others too. One is simply expression of love. Even negatives are part of this as life energy
    Universal life energy is love
    Realize your true essence of being love allow you to give priority to yourself and be yourself all the time
    Selfishness come from lack of self love
    When I realize I'm love I don't get drain or expect people to treat me certain way for approval
    When I'm not judgmental to my self I feel the same way to others
    Not to be harsh on oneself when experiencing challenges .. Most challenges are the result of not realizing your truth
    When you feel your magnificence you don't feel the need to control others or allows others to control you
    Realizing that I am love made the biggest difference or realization during my NDE ... You don't need anything to be love you are already love
    The whole universe is an extension of me
    Reincarnation and after life Reincarnation as a past life is not supported by the NDE... Rather everything happens at once and our mind and physical being make that interpretation to make sense of all life happening at once
    When someone had glimpse of what has been previously interpreted as past lives it's really happening now (listen)
    You are really accessing parallel or simultaneous existence
    What if heaven and hell are right here
    Our purpose is not to gain experience for after life but rather to evolve this physical universe
    We don't have to wait until we die to arrive to nirvana other magnificence exit right now
    We imagine/project after life based on our human system (fear, retribution), but if we realize we are one life energy and love we don't need to research externally. But we are getting more lost by doing this way. Our answer is within us. Everything happens externally is to trigger something inside us
    We are all one When we leave our bodies then we will realize we are all one
    You can feel this with our pets, and when we experience Extrasensory or synchronicity
    There is no creation separate than me
    This allows me to live life in love and courage
    Life Force/ Energy Life force is same as Chi, prana, Reiki, source of life. It runs into every living thing
    Chi doesn't have a judgment
    This energy is not separate from us, it is limitless and formless. Realizing this is to create healing and magic for us.
    Once I let go, Chi was allowed to flow on its own. Soul is about being while mind is about doing
    State of being Need to life from the state of being rather from doing. Being is following emotions and feeling while being in the present. Doing is future focus, mind creating series of tasks to accomplish a certain outcome regales of emotion state.
    To know if you are in the state of being, just watch the reason for your decision is it fear for example or joy?
    Fear, jealousy stem from the reason of not realizing your own magnicifance
    Problems come from not knowing who we are
    If we stop judging ourselves we stop condemning others
    This present condition of humanity is culmination of all of our thoughts and believes
    Criminals are victims of fear
    on Allowing Follow our own guidance to find what is right for us, not necessarily follow a dogma
    Prayer can bring a lot positive attitude such as allowing and letting go, which contribute to our own being and to others. But for others it could be listening to music, being in Nature or pursing knowledge and technologies. so it is not prayer in itself that makes us aware of our magnificent self, but the ability to connect with our own passion, giving our life a sense of unity.
    I find meditation very helpful while others may not.
    The minute this start to be hard it may not work well for you. State of allowing is what you need to look for.
    If negative thoughts come, just allow them with acceptance and without judgment. The more you push them away the more they push back. Eventually they will pass.
    Our feeling is most important parameters to determine condition of our lives
    Being true to our self is more important than staying positive.
    Every moment that passes cant be replicated
    on "the law of attraction: I prefer to think of the word "Allowing" rather than "Attracting"
    Perfection is constant in motion
    When you allow is realizing whatever you desire is already yours

    Story
    "Beneficial for everyone"

    I have read several spiritual books. I enjoy the way they look at the big picture emphasizing large Concepts like love, peace, unselfishness, and having no fear. I often found myself questioning whether her story was actually true. but I quickly realized that it doesn't matter if the story is true or hypothetical. The ideas presented would be beneficial regardless. I found myself questioning weather the spiritual path she presented might be a little selfish. she states that we are all God and we are all each other creating a giant continuum which is the concept of non dualism. But she seemed to emphasize helping self over helping others. that was one point I had trouble integrating into the rest of her teachings. the other thing I couldn't agree completely with was how much she emphasized being happy. of course everyone is different but being happy doesn't seem to me that it should be the ultimate goal. we also learn and grow a great deal through sacrifice and struggle.

    overall I found this very beneficial book and I think many others would as well. Even if you don't agree with the concept of non dualism, there's still a great deal of beneficial information in the book. I also found it kept my interest and was easy to finish.

    NDE's are fascinating. The door between life and death opens in both directions.
