Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing (Paperback)
In this truly inspirational memoir, 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 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!
Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge. As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, 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! This is a book that definitely makes the case that we are spiritual beings having a human experience . . . and that we are all One!
About the Author
Anita Moorjani was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and lived in Hong Kong until she moved to the United States in 2015. Because of her background and British education, she is multilingual and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously. Anita worked in the corporate world for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April 2002.
Her fascinating and moving near-death experience (NDE) in early 2006 tremendously changed her perspective on life, and her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm. She, and her miraculous story, were discovered by Dr Wayne Dyer who fostered her entrance into the world of public speaking, and urged her to write a book about her experience. And following his lead, Anita wrote her first book, Dying to be Me, and it reached the New York Times Best Seller list. Since then her two other books "What if this is Heaven" and "Sensitive is the New Strong" have reached significant acclaim. As a result of her NDE, Anita is often invited to speak at conferences and events around the globe to share her insights. From her Social Media channels to her live workshops, Anita demonstrates that she is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even the most adverse situations.
Anita currently lives in California with her husband, and together they continue to share the messages that mean most to Anita through her books, social media platforms, online Sanctuary and retreats and workshops. Today, Anita is a contemporary activist for love and peace, sharing what she learned on the other side through her videos, books, and speeches.
"I have been deeply and profoundly touched by the contents of this book, and even more so by my personal relationship with Anita Moorjani, who came into my life through a series of Divinely orchestrated coincidences." - Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
"Describing her ensuing near-death experience as a realm of clarity and expansiveness, 'a state of being,' Moorjani made the choice to return, and her rapid and remarkable recovery defies all medical understanding. Her psychospiritual healing, which continues to this day, was self-realization: of her own magnificence, of oneness with universal energy and with a universe comprising. This candid memoir is a cathartic testimony to the magnificence and healing capacity of every human being." - Publishers Weekly
"This book is very thought provoking. Can we take the learnings, and make the changes, from someone else's Near Death Experience? Can I create for myself the same level of faith and knowing just by reading this book? Honestly, I don't think I can. But what I can do is open my mind that little bit more, take this book as another brick in building that wall of strength, and take her learnings with me on my own journey. I recommend that you do that same." - Rachel Bell
"I had the pleasure of reading Anita's book after hearing her speak in Sydney, Australia at the end of January. Her NDE experience is profound. The wisdom she shares is life changing." - Cheryl Richardson
"This book reminded me how important it is to live life from a place of passion rather than from a place of fear. No matter what challenge life gives us, it's really important to look for the gift in it. This book is truly amazing." - Vibrant Living with Celine
