Dying to Be Me - From a cancer-ravaged body to a joyful life

Dying to Be Me – From a cancer-ravaged body to a joyful life

In February 2006, Anita Moorjani was admitted to the hospital with Stage 4B cancer as she slipped into a coma, her body no longer able to sustain life. Her grief-stricken husband and mom held vigil by her side after the doctors told them Anita’s organs were shutting down, one by one, and she would live for only a few more hours.

Unbeknownst to them, Anita was in fact in the midst of a remarkable near-death experience. As her loved ones grasped her hands and prayed for a miracle, she could see, hear and feel everything. She could even see her brother as he was on a flight to come see her, filled with fear and angst that he wouldn’t make it in time for his final goodbye to his younger sister. She felt her husband’s heartache as he heard the words, “Your wife’s heart may still be beating, but she’s not really in there. It’s too late to save her.” In the meantime, Anita was thinking, “Who is the doctor talking about? I’ve never felt better in my life!”

                  I became aware of the presence of my father, who’d died ten years earlier, and it brought me an unbelievable sense of comfort to see him. He spoke to me.

Like others who have had near-death experiences (NDEs), Anita was met by family members who had died before her on the “other side”. She also met other beings she ‘knew’ but didn’t recognize – all of these spirits loved her immensely and gave her the choice: stay where she was or go back to the physical plane. When she chose not to return to her cancer-ravaged body, these beings told her if she returned, her disease would disappear.

I then understood that even if my physical body stopped, everything is still perfect in the greater tapestry of life, for we never truly die.

A day later, Anita woke up, much to the surprise and joy to everyone around her. Within days, she was cancer-free.

Through this experience I understood that my body is only a reflection of my internal state. If my inner self were aware of its greatness and connection with All-That-Is, my body would soon show that and heal rapidly.

Puzzled doctors could not understand how billions of cancer cells disappeared from her body without causing her to go into toxic shock.

Anita’s experience is similar to others’ descriptions of their own NDEs – there is lightness, a sense of freedom, a feeling of Oneness and above all, unconditional love permeating everything.

I recommend this book to everyone – reincarnation believers, those who believe in the “other side”; that our loved ones who are no longer here physically are still with us – and skeptics alike.

Life your life fearlessly! Out of the many messages I brought back from my NDE – we are all One, we are love at our core, we are magnificent – this was the strongest one and reverberated within me.

I am so glad I read this book – I have had experiences of those who have crossed over coming to visit me for a few people I’ve done readings for, so I know solidly in my heart that we never truly die. But I’ve never heard anyone describe what it’s like as well as Anita.

Review in a nutshell: This is an inspirational, thought provoking, goose bump-inducing book. Read it! 

PS: A week after I wrote this article, I said goodbye to my best friend and companion of 10 years, my 10-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Chester. This book helped confirm the comfort I feel in knowing Chester is in a place where there is no pain, only love. I have written about Chester and how much he means to me over the past couple of years. Even in death, Chester has taught me so much. I will share those thoughts next week.

I am going to get this book, Lindsay! I feel there is so much fear out there that this book would be a great reminder of the greatness within. You can’t argue with goosebumps, afterall.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts after you read the book, Kristine!

Thank you! I’ve got it on hold at the library.

And so sorry about Chester. Words can even express what I’m feeling in my heart for you right now.

On both topics, I wrote in a post almost one year ago when we had to euthanize our 13 yr. old boxer, about how I found comfort in remembering my own near-death experience. The freedom I experienced was out of this world. I feel 99.99% sure our sweet pups got to experience that too.

Big big hug. xoxo

Oh that’s right, I remember you mentioning your NDE! I need to go read your post about euthanizing your boxer. I’ve not a doubt in my mind you and I are in the same soul group. <3

Thank you again for your love re: Chester. Can't wait to talk to you soon.

Just finished the book. Wowza, what a good read! True words of spirit and an IMPORTANT reminder of our magnificence and radiance. I am also reminded to let my arms down and just BE. Thank you Lindsay for this suggestion. I would have never found the book if you hadn’t mentioned it. Will be passing this book forward!

Kristine I’m so glad you liked the book as much as I did. It is a perfect reminder to just BE. And it also gave me hope. A girl I went to high school with has a 6 year old little girl who is battling cancer and 3 nights ago, doctors told them she wouldn’t make it through the night. Here we are 3 days later and the little girl is still alive, baffling doctors with her ‘recovery’. I keep praying she has a miracle just like Anita.

Oh that is wonderful for the little girl. I know it can be heartbreaking and no doubt that there’s those that surround her are filled with fear for her. Hope is love. It is important to believe in healing and be in a state of trust. Unfortunately doctors are so focused on the physical they forget about the great spirit within.

Anita’s book is important for our world today. So needed!
