Product Description


I read 'Dying to be Me' by Anita Moorjani after hearing her speak and was deeply moved by her story. David Hamilton PhD., author of 'How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body' --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Anita Moorjani was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multilingual and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously; she later learned French at school. Anita had been working in the corporate world for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience 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.

As a result of her near-death experience, Anita is often invited to speak at conferences and events around the globe to share her insights. She's also a frequent guest at the University of Hong Kong's department of behavioral sciences, speaking on topics such as dealing with terminal illness, facing death, and the psychology of spiritual beliefs. She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life's most adverse situations, as she's the living proof of this possibility.

Anita currently lives in Hong Kong with her husband, and when she's not traveling and speaking at conferences, she works as an intercultural consultant for multinational corporations based in the city.

As an avid listener of Hay House Radio, I first heard of Anita's book on Wayne Dyer's weekly show. I was immediately drawn to the book because of Anita's remarkable story which had been verified by medical doctors. I awaited its release and finally downloaded it to my Kindle. The book is a quick read - I read most of it in one Saturday - and it is very nicely written, sectioned off to talk about the Anita's life, the NDE, and how the experience has affected the author's life after coming back from "the other side" and miraculously healing from years of cancer in a matter of weeks. The memoir portion of the book is exceptional and succinct. I did wish when I was reading it that the author would share more of her emotions during the experiences of her childhood and adulthood, since she concludes later that the onset of her cancer was due to a fear-based life. It didn't really come through in the first section of the book and much of the emotional background was left to be read in between the lines. I wished that Anita had been more bold in those descriptions.
Anita's description of the NDE and of being on the "other side" is definitely the highlight of this memoir. It's no wonder that people who have had this experience lose their fear of death. And since every fear in our lives is based on the fear of death, it's very inspiring for a reader to realize that once the fear of death has been resolved in our lives, there isn't much else in life to be afraid of. This frees us to live life to its fullest. Thank you so much Anita for sharing this profound experience with us!
The latter portion of the book I took to be inspirational. The author discourages any advice-giving or following any prescribed platitudes.

Anita's first book Dying to be Me is an absolute gem! An easy read ( I finished it in less than two days)...I found in the days and weeks after that I often had conversations with people on various topics and found myself referencing something from the book........this is not a book about dying, its not a book about cancer.....this is a book about living!! about being you who truly are!! about letting go of fear and stress and's a book about why we are really here!

Starting with the authors life growing up in an East Indian family in Hong Kong and attending British Catholic schools, Anita lays a foundation for us that shows how the way we think affects our physical bodies. Anita points out that cancer is just our minds way of getting our attention that we need to change something in the way we are thinking. Cancer is not the enemy, it's just an indicator of how we have been thinking. Change the thoughts the indicator has to change too.
After her near death experience Anita comes back to live her life to the fullest. When asked in the back of the book whether she had changed her way of eating since her NDE , she replies that she has indeed but not in the way you'd think. She now eats whatever makes her happy, and if that means chocolate or a nice glass of wine that's okay! She still eats healthy but from a place of joy not fear that not doing so will bring about disease.

This is a book that everyone should read regardless of religion. The wisdom found in this book can be applied to every day issues with amazing results.

I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes.
I was not financially compensated for this post. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I heard about this book on PBS during a fund raiser wtih Wayne Dyer. I have read it three times in a month and it has opened up my mind and expanded my understanding of the nature of being.
Anita's story, which she said was not easily described in words, can help to heal the mind of fear and death. A excellent book that can be life changing.

Anita brings a lots of insight from her 'death' experience, she is inviting everyone to accept themselves completely (their ego, intellect, body and spirit) because "it is who you are, there is nothing to forgive, nothing to attain. You already are everything you need to be". She also believes that Paradise is a state not a place and all the rules and religions that human beings created are illusion. We should only love ourselves and be true and kind to ourselves as well as fully live the present moment, that was her conclusion from her death trip. It is only our ego that creates stories and tries to believe them, it is also the ego that divides the humanity by creating dogmas, rules, judgments and religions. Another interesting idea from this book is that you can't give love to others if you don't give it yourself first, when you love yourself, you can start loving others and give them much more than when you give them by obligation.

Anita's book is very simple and very honest description of her life before, during, and after her NDE. Her story really touched my heart and my soul mostly because of knowing that this story is real and that it really happened. This book is such amazing opportunity to learn that there is something else, something beyond what we can see and perceive in our day to day lives. Anita is putting really huge impact throughout the whole story on loving ourselves and accepting ourselves the way we are. Not trying to be somebody we are not or forcing ourselves to be in certain way, criticizing ourselves and trying to change who we truly are to satisfy the society or people around us. She teaches you in this book that self-love and self-acceptance and true enjoyment of who we are even with our negative traits are the most important. Reading this book I realized that most of my life I tried to shape myself into somebody, controlling myself, changing the way I behaved and thought denying who I really was or felt at the time. I wanted to be a positive and good person so people will like me and will be happy around me. But most of the time suppressing my true feelings and emotions. We all do this.... And then we don't like ourselves when we feel negative emotions or act the way we know we shouldn't. Anita teaches you that it's OK to feel negative emotions. That you still should love yourself doesn't matter how you feel. You are still worth the love! The Universe created you in certain way, gave you certain traits and qualities and you should be in peace with them even though society may perceive them as negative at times. You are You and You are perfect the way You are! Love yourself, enjoy yourself and celebrate your uniqueness.
