Publisher's Summary

Following her near-death experience as shared in the New York Times best-seller Dying to Be Me, Anita Moorjani knows well the truths that exist beyond common knowledge and acceptance. The clarity she has gained has led her to further understand who she was born to be.

Part of that truth has involved contemplating the cultural myths infused into our everyday lives. Passed down from generation to generation, these myths are pervasive and influential. From the belief we reap what we sow to the idea we must always be positive, cultural myths are often accepted as truths without questioning. Moorjani asserts it is now time for questioning in order to help us reach our fully informed, authentic selves.

Moorjani explores these common myths in their real-world existence while presenting examples from her own life that reveal the falsehoods beneath the surface. By freeing ourselves from these ubiquitous expectations, we can break open an honest pathway to life as it was meant to be lived.

Excellent Follow-up to Dying to Be Me

I love Anita Moorjani's down-to-earth, humble affect; it's great to hear her reading her own writing, as it brings the reader in close to her, as if you are a valued friend. This was an excellent follow-up to Dying to Be Me, with practical tips for being proactive in implementing the lessons she learned in her NDE (Near Death Experience) into everyday life. One thing I love is that she is clear about not giving anyone advice about what one "should" do. She merely offers her own experience and vision and leaves it to the reader to decide if any of it is helpful in their own lives or not. If you haven't read Dying to Be Me, I recommend you start there, as it provides the underpinnings for why you should even want to know what she has to say. Besides that, Dying to Be Me is a work of engaging and inspiring storytelling.

Beautiful

Love her interpretation on some spiritual concepts related to ego (different from any I've read before) and the process of allowing negative thoughts... more aw-ha moments.

A new level

Anita Moorjani's book helped me reach a new level in forgiving myself, sparking joy in my life and understanding others with love. I've been down this journey before, tapped on my past, practiced meditation and never have I reached the level of compassion toward myself and others as I have while reading this book - and tapping through where I was stuck. Thank you for BEING a true and important message in this world, Anita! You make a difference!

A good book! I look forward to the next one

I listened to this book and found it spiritually enlightening!

The author speaks from her heart and encourages others to do the same throughout this book. So many of our beliefs are based on stories thousands of years old which don’t stand up today. This author gives voice to all that doesn’t stand up anymore. She is not the first being to bring up there is no hell except the one people expect to see when they die. Seth talked about this in his books with Jain Robert’s. Like Jain this author is being ignored for the real message they’re bringing to us. The message is a simple one which is that perceptions run our lives and it’s time for new ones as well as a new vision! I was always taught to hate and control the ego, but in reality the more you fight it the more you have to fight it. So, why not do as this author suggests and turn up our own lights to stand in our god hood? If we did then we ourselves would no longer fear death and be controlled through our fears. Imagine what that world would be like!

I’ve recently read several books which call on us to challenge our long held beliefs about religion including how we see those who we call spiritual teachers. How many times have we seen anything which challenges the established stories or narratives wiped out only to find out later they were true? Why are there so many TV shows and movies telling us our old belief system must come to an end? Why are there other shows telling us the version of God in the Bible must be replaced with a kinder, gentler God? Why are seeing old texts telling us to bring balance between men and women destroyed? It’s another way to keep us in fear and out of balance. I agree with the author and it’s time we came back into balance as a whole! The Age of Aquarius started in 2012 as the Mayan calendar changed from 12th Baktun to the 13th Baktun on the Winter Solstice. This means we come into harmony with feminine energy missing from so long in our world. However, religious zealots are still pushing the old agenda which is another reason to listen to this author! It’s time to be in balance!

words that speak to me

After reading Dying to be Me, I wasn't sure that there could be more to say about Anita Moorjanis story. How wrong was I. What I love about her, is her down to earth style, she doesn't make any guru claims. She makes the reader feel as one with her. This is a more practical approach for those who need a nudge to shine their light. Her words are like an elixir to the soul. I only wish there were more Anita Moorjani books, nothing else comes close.

Influential

This was an inspiring journey and I found it enriching. I would especially recommend it to anyone who worries about mortality and bereavement and to anyone who has health anxiety and who thinks that we need to be constantly fixing ourselves. Anita has some unique and heart warming lessons to share, that we can all benefit from.

Amazing Book

I love listening to Anita moorjani. She has a lovely voice and everything she says just feels right for me and brings me a feeling of relief and peace within myself. It's like she reminds me that I don't have to try so hard at life and to fix myself.. just keep loving myself, being myself and let the rest flow. Thank you Anita.. please keep sharing!!

Awesome, fantastic, just some technical issues.

Great book, very interesting and motivating. There seems either to be a technical issue at Hayhouse, a server problem at Audible or something went wrong while downloading, bc many small parts are repeated, up to 5 times; a bit annoying.

Amazing book from amazing lady.

Thank you for sharing your love and honesty with us.
Your books has no words I can describe and the "What If This Is Heaven?" answered a lot more questions for me and hopeful for the rest of the readers, it was the next chapter.
I thank you Anita and Danny from my heart for your unconditional love you share with the world.

Dispelling myths!

I felt myself relax and lean back whilst reading this book. I found Anita's definitions of life and death very soothing and comforting. Knowing that all that we were ever meant to do was be ourselves allowed me to breath deeper and let go of all the expectations that I have placed on my own life. I also like Anita's unpretentious way of bringing her message across and definitely recommend taking the time to read this book.

Another amazing read. I listened to Anita's first book Dying to be me, and I loved it. I smile every time I listen to what Anita has to say, as if she is reminding me who I really am. Thank goodness Wayne discovered Anita, so she can share her amazing message to us all.

Dying to Be Me was better

I listened to Dying to Be Me and this book back to back and enjoyed the first one better. It felt more fresh and original. There are good nuggets in this book and the messaging is consistent. There are also many sections where great slabs of conversations and interviews are paraphrased. I did not enjoy listening to this as much and would have preferred to hear a pithier, summarised version that is well integrated into the flow of writing where Anita's own voice takes centre stage (like in Dying to Be Me).

Thank You!

Anita explains very well how to be true to ourselves as the way to experience our earthly existence, how ego and awareness implement one another, how to stay inspired In oneself before inspiring others, she talked about her encounters with her audiences who needed her help in this book so poignantly, I love every word in her books and I can’t wait for the next one!
