Dying To Be Me, Anita Moorjani

I love to write, share my discoveries and investigate why I am here Being Natalie. Being Natalie aims to share the information I have gathered over many years and recently this little gem spoke volumes to my heart.  So much so, I have underlined most of the book as Anita’s language is magical to anyone who feels disconnected from themselves and life.

This book is about YOU and discovering for yourself a path that ignites your true being and purpose whilst we walk a short, special time on this planet.

Like myself, Anita was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which almost killed her. She chose not to have chemotherapy because she watched a close friend suffer immensely during the chemotherapy process and chose to take an alternative route to healing herself.

Unfortunately her cancer didn’t stop spreading until she got so ill she ended up in hospital hooked up to a life support machine with little hope of survival. This is when she had her near death experience and life was never the same again for Anita. One has to read the book to grasp fully what she witnessed, experienced and discovered apart from becoming a medical miracle! She realised it was FEAR that had created her cancer and I couldn’t agree more. 

Overall this book rekindled my love of exploring the realms of Natalie as well as reminding myself what I value in life. She is truly inspiring and there is no answer on ‘how to’ cure cancer but simply through her sharing what she witnessed in another realm, she opened my eyes to the importance of living truly as Natalie and to never stop loving who I am.

The other clear message I got from this book: there is no where to get to…There is now and now is where we find peace, love and respect for who we are. Diving into the oceans of what if, when I, once I do this or someday when I’m rich, married etc – all takes you away from who you really are. I am still doing this, comparing myself to others, hoping I will be different after cancer but Natalie is Natalie and that’s whom I wish to embrace, love and enjoy – then life takes you on a natural course and the universe pushes you in the right direction. 

I think a wonderful extension of Anita’s near death experience is Dr Jill Bolte Taylor’s ‘Stroke of Insight’ on TED. Here is another amazing person who underwent an experience that so few of us will ever fully understand plus Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist. It’s an amazing speech and gave me goose pimples when I heard her recite the process she underwent during a stroke plus how spiritual it was. Watch it!
