About Anita Moorjani
Now an international speaker and New York Times best-selling author, Anita had been given mere hours to live by her doctors on the morning of February 2, 2006. Unable to move and in a deep coma caused by the cancer that had ravaged her body for nearly four years, Anita entered another realm where she experienced great clarity and understanding about her life and purpose here on earth. In that realm, she was given a choice of whether to return to life or continue on into death. Anita chose to return to this life when she realized that heaven is a state, not a place. Because of this awareness, she made a remarkable and complete recovery within weeks of coming out of the coma. When she shared her story of healing and the insights she gained from her experience in the other realm, it went viral on the internet, receiving enormous interest internationally.
The 2012 book she wrote about her experience, Dying to Be Me (published by Hay House), hit the New York Times bestseller list within two weeks of its release, remaining there for nine weeks. Dying to Be Me also became number 1 in Canada and was in the top 20 on the Canadian book charts for six months. The book has since been translated into 45 languages and has sold over one million copies worldwide. It has also garnered the attention of several Hollywood producers to be made into a full-length feature film.
Anita's second book, What If This Is Heaven? (Published September 13 2016 by Hay House), debunks 10 common cultural myths most of us have accepted without question that keep us from experiencing heaven on earth.
Anita's children's book "Love: A story about who you truly are" (Self published on October 1 2017), is co-authored and illustrated by children's book author Angie DeMuro. Within the pages of this beautifully written and illustrated book, children are taught how to have compassion and acceptance for themselves. And how to love themselves through many everyday situations.
Now completely cancer-free, Anita travels the globe, giving talks and workshops, as well as speaking at conferences and special events. She's been interviewed regularly on various prime-time television shows around the world, including CNN's Anderson Cooper 360°, The Dr. Oz Show, Fox News, The Jeff Probst Show, the National Geographic Channel, and The Today Show in the U.S., as well as The Pearl Report in Hong Kong, HeadStart with Karen Davila in the Philippines, and many others.
Born in Singapore of Indian parents, Anita lived in Hong Kong most of her life. From the age of two, she grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously. Before her cancer diagnosis and near-death experience, Anita worked in the corporate field for several years. She now resides in the United States.

The New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me returns with an inspirational guide for sensitive people looking to fully harness their gifts of intuition and empathy in today’s harsh world.
International speaker, cancer survivor, and author of Dying to Be Me Anita Moorjani astounded fans across the globe with her New York Times bestselling book about overcoming cancer and her life-changing near-death experience. Now she returns with Sensitive Is the New Strong, a powerful, heartfelt book on harnessing and fostering empathic gifts in today’s difficult, fear-based world.
Empaths not only sense other people’s emotions, but also absorb them—sometimes to their own disadvantage, often leading to overwhelming sensory overload and feelings of confusion or low self-esteem. Their willingness to help and please others might make them prey to opportunists or cause them to give away more energy than they can afford. But Anita Moorjani argues that it’s possible to turn this onslaught of emotional burden into a powerful tool. In a time when traits like sensitivity, kindness, and compassion are sorely undervalued, Moorjani helps empaths—whether emerging or acknowledged—navigate obstacles they may face and identify what makes them unique. Finally, she teaches them how to claim their true powers as empaths, to be their most authentic selves, shifting their own trajectory and leading to shift the trajectory of the planet in a more conscientious direction.
Filled with eye-opening personal anecdotes, insights from other empaths, meditations, and self-affirming mantras, Sensitive Is the New Strong is an empowering book that demonstrates the positive power of sensitivity.
"I had the choice to come back ... or not. I chose to return when I realized that 'heaven' is a state, not a place"
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 this enhanced e-book, Anita recounts—in words and on video—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.
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!
If life is about the journey and not the destination, could it be that this is heaven—this physical life we are living here on Earth? What we experience in our daily lives often feels like anything but heaven. But what if we understood how powerful we are—that we are powerful enough to mold both our internal and our external reality?
Anita Moorjani, the New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me, is convinced we can do exactly that. The process, she explains, requires dismantling many cultural myths mistaken for indisputable truths. Beliefs such as “We get what we deserve,” “Loving ourselves is selfish,” and “Coincidences are just that—coincidences,” are ingrained within us from birth, pervasive and influential, leading to generations of misguidance.
Following her near-death experience, Moorjani began to embody truths she learned in the other realm, discovering that letting go of these outmoded myths allowed her to experience heaven not as a physical place but as a state of mind, right here and right now. In this examination of our common myths, she shares stories and examples from her own life, revealing the lies beneath the surface of what she was taught and absorbed. By freeing ourselves from these falsehoods, Moorjani asserts, we can leave fear, heartache, and self-imposed boundaries behind and instead live lives full of purpose and joy.

Manchmal muss man erst sterben, um voll und ganz leben zu können. Dieses Buch führt uns auf die spannendste Reise, die man sich vorstellen kann. Anita Moorjani war an Krebs erkrankt und lag im Sterben. Doch als sie das Bewusstsein verlor, fand sie sich plötzlich in einem von Licht und Ekstase erfüllten Raum wieder. Tiefgreifende Erkenntnisse über unsere göttliche Natur, unsere Aufgabe auf der Erde und den Sinn ihrer Krankheit strömten auf sie ein. Obwohl sie gerne in diesem jenseitigen Raum geblieben wäre, entschloss sie sich, zurückzukehren, denn sie erkannte: »Der Himmel ist kein Ort, sondern ein Zustand.« Anita Moorjani kehrte ins Leben zurück, und in der Folge heilte ihr Krebs zur Überraschung aller Mediziner vollständig ab. Diese Erfahrung hat ihr Leben verändert. Sie weiß jetzt: Es gibt keinen Grund für Traurigkeit und Angst. Wir sind nicht nur mit allen anderen Lebewesen und mit Gott verbunden – in einer tieferen Schicht sind wir Gott. Ein zutiefst bewegender Erfahrungsbericht und zugleich ein Ratgeber, der unser aller Anschauung über das Leben und den Tod verändern kann.
