This allows us to be an instrument of love. This brings everything that's truly ours into our life effortlessly in the most magical and unexpected ways.
Anita healed because she allowed her true spirit to shine through. And because she moved from operating out of A superb book for which I have written a good amount of notes that I plan to read often. And because she moved from operating out of concrete beliefs which is limiting to being open to the realm of infinite possibilities. The act of needing certainty hinders experiencing greater levels of awareness.
So let go and release all attachments to any belief or outcome. Enjoy and trust in the ride that is life. Jul 31, Lucia rated it it was amazing.
This is one of the best near-death experiencs I have come across so far. She repeats again and again how important it is to know how to connect to this higher part of ourselves in order to heal, get rid of various deep rooted fears, and to fulfill the unique purpose of our individual Being. Mar 21, Patrice rated it it was amazing. I am almost finished with this book and feel extremely excited about it.
Since I have arthritis, I might relate to this book on another level than someone who is completely healthy in the body and the mind. However, this book is a woman's account of how she discovers her purpose in life, thereby healing herself. And she gives a beautiful account of her near death experience in words that resonated with me on such a deep and profound level.
I think her experience in general resonated with me. I wo I am almost finished with this book and feel extremely excited about it. I would recommend this book to anyone who is feeling misplaced, discouraged or lost in their lives. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking answers or trying to figure out who they are.
I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from disease. It's one of those books that I will read again and again just to be reminded what life is truly about. Apr 09, Jason rated it it was ok. Quite the hard pill to swallow — at times it is laced with rather insightful observations regarding self-worth, and at others it is filled with hyperbolic love speak that is tantamount to any garden-variety, acid-induced ramblings in the parking lot of a Phish concert.
You may choose which portion you read first or which to skip, based upon your particular bent. Or has the choice already been made Quite the hard pill to swallow — at times it is laced with rather insightful observations regarding self-worth, and at others it is filled with hyperbolic love speak that is tantamount to any garden-variety, acid-induced ramblings in the parking lot of a Phish concert.
Or has the choice already been made for you? Glass half-full: In her introduction Moorjani attempts to explicitly state that these are her experiences alone, and that she is not trying to convince anyone, but help. Not to provide some new doctrine of existence, but to describe her story, and that each person needs to take their own path with their own cancer and ultimately their lives.
The first is that we should not feel that we need to pray i. And finally, and perhaps most importantly, we do not need to know all the answers. Certainty is not always necessary. Had she simply had a better opinion of herself, she never would have gotten cancer in the first place. You hear that, person whose hair is falling out from Chemotherapy?
Are you happy, now? You did this to yourself, you know? Had you just loved yourself more, you never would have gotten sick in the first place. Moorjani waits until p. That dangerous lemon of thought is allowed to hangout on the tree for nearly the entire narrative. Especially when she is so dismissive of the follow-up tests that proved her remission, and the rounds of Chemotherapy that she completed. Without these tests and treatments, there would be no medical record to be studied and therefore marveled; prohibiting her pseudo-celebrity following her NDE.
This book is rife with the same empty language and lack of personal responsibility as it claims that all decisions are predestined. Oh, and by the way, she put an exclamation point behind that word, too. View all 18 comments. Jul 29, Anna rated it did not like it.
Not at all impressed by this book. It is basically a memoir and lacks the factual details regarding her diagnosis, illness and cure. And I believe it is quite preposterous to claim a natural human emotion such as fear can cause cancer. If that was the case, we would all be suffering from one form of cancer or another. At times, I found it quite nauseating as she keeps going on and on about her 'magnificence'. For someone who has come from a life of privilege, I found her to be quite the whiner.
One does not need to have a NDE to realize what she preaches. It just takes common sense. Mar 23, Nikki rated it it was amazing. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed reading this book.
In three words I would describe it as amazing, comforting and enlightening. I wanted to take a highlighter to it and mark it all up so I could save it in my mind and take her words with me through out my day to day life. I love how she expresses her own truths in a non intrusive way and they are not necessarily everyone's truths. I will read it again and again and give many more away as a gifts. Feb 19, Judith rated it it was amazing.
She had the choice to come back or not She chose to return when she realized that "heaven" is a state, not a place If you don't think you are magnificent this book will change your mind This is a read over and over and over again because it's so full of new ideas. You won't agree with all of them but the ones you take on will surely change your life.
Mar 06, Sue rated it it was amazing. Whether or not you believe in near-death experiences, Anita describes her life, beliefs, and events leading up to her cancer, her organs shutting down, going into a coma, and what comes after.
This was not like other NDE's I've read about. She isn't trying to change anyone's beliefs. It's very life-affirming, empowering, and uplifting. I hope everyone will read it.

The only universal solution I have is to love yourself unconditionally and be yourself fearlessly! One of the biggest flaws with many traditional spiritual systems is that they give you such a somber outlook.
Although you know that I abhor creating doctrines, if I ever had to create a set of tenets for a spiritual path to healing, number one on my list would be to make sure to laugh as often as possible throughout every single day—and preferably laugh at myself. This would be hands down over and above any form of prayer, meditation, chanting, or diet reform.
Day-to-day problems never seem as big when viewed through a veil of humor and love. Our life is our prayer. In ullum ludus evertitur nec. Solum mentitum quo et, no ancillae legendos mel.
