"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

I was not with him when he died because his cell phone was left in the ambulance and he could not call me - meantime I was in another city waiting for him and seeing a big crow dancing it front of me and following me around. I will give you my spoiler--it was HIM telling he was happy. Meantime I am texting another friend I may be dying soon because this crow was dancing and following me around. We were to meet at a concert knowing he only had days so Doctors were just letting him go out and live life on tons of prednisone. That gave him all the energy in the world despite the fact he looked like our science school skeleton.
I bought this on Kindle a few years ago show I hope it still shows up as a "verified" review.
So much of Moorjani’s story makes sense and feel relevant however there were parts that did not. She came from a loving family and married her”soul mate” yet she says that her cancer was caused in part by her relentless need to be a yes girl and please everyone. Yet, she did not go through with her arranged marriage. This seems at odds with her explanation.
She offers a richly detailed accounting of her experiences in the “other realm”. She comes out of her coma in a fully aware state, able to recount what went on in the hospital while she was under. She recognized faces she had never seen and was able to recall conversations that took place both in and outside of the room she was in. She appears in a way “supernatural”. She knew with an utmost certainty that when she woke up, there was not a trace of the cancer that a very short time ago ravaged her body and unbelievably even allowed her medical team to submit her to painful tests and administer chemo though she was against it.
Though they could find no cancer in her body, they still insisted it had to be present. I would have loved for this woman to advocate for herself more strongly. I could not understand how she would submit herself to chemo when she refused it the entire duration of her illness, opting instead for holistic and natural treatment course. Why would she continue to tax the insurance system if she was so certain she was cured? Did she honestly care what her doctors thought? Didn’t that kind of thinking get her into trouble in the first place? There was one instance where a doctor came into the room with test results that she had already stated she knew ahead of time. All it took to plant a seed of doubt in her mind was the way the doctor prefaced giving her the results. If she was so sure, where did that doubt come from? I found this all so interesting but I had a lot of unanswered questions. Speaking of unanswered questions: the Q&A at the end of the book were none of the questions I would have asked. It was disappointing.
Another thing that bothered me was that in the “other realm”, Moorjani states that there is no judgment, no amends to be made or punishment. So, a serial killer and a pedophile carry the same weight as Mother Teresa. Wow! I don’t buy this at all. Perhaps it’s true that where Moorjani ended up is a place of no judgment but I don’t believe a murderer would end up in the same place. She seems certain that all come to the same place. I believe her experience is solely her experience. She believes the key to all is self-love and a murderer is just a greater degree of self-hatred. People who do great harm on earth are merely suffering the most and deserve our compassion. Maybe this is true but no matter how one suffers, they don’t have the right to knowingly inflict it on others. Victims are more deserving of our compassion. Moorjani also feels that taking a stand for a belief or system of beliefs and fighting for them ensures more of what you are fighting against because it comes from a place of fear. Her message is confusing because taking a stand for what you believe in and refusing to stay silent or take the easy way out of fear is a big part of why we are here. I have trouble with her mixed messages. She herself prefers to remain noncommittal, easy going and live and let live. This comes across as lazy thinking. She spoke of how after her NDE, she could not relate to the frivolity of thinking that plagued some of those she knew yet she talks about the pleasures of chocolates, shopping, and champagne. Couldn’t those things be viewed as frivolous as well? There were just too many contradictions.
In reading a book such as this one, it is important to retain critical thinking and draw your own conclusions. What she states is food for thought and it is always a benefit to learn to listen to alternative views but the overriding message, that all people are good and our actions on earth don’t matter in the end sounds like overly simplistic liberal nonsense.
BRB Rating: Read It.
I have run the gamut of religions and belief systems in my life and what Anita writes is what resonates the most with me. I know I have spent most of my life not really loving myself and this is the path I choose to finish living my life on. With so much fear running rampant now we can see all the damage that is the result of it. Choosing to love yourself is the only thing we have control over.

And she delivers a very important message - we are love, we need to give love and equally important, love ourselves. For anyone who is a Course in Miracles student or on any other serious spiritual path I would definitely add this to their respective reading list.
Anita’s story will touch your heart and feed your soul.
However, I do not agree with every opinion given, as Anita speaks from the perception she experienced which isn't necessarily the entire 'story'. There are many levels of perception which is why people having an NDE differ in their perceptions (or assumptions) about the spirit dimensions. Most are basically good people, so they attune accordingly and are far less likely to see that there are less progressed realms in spirit life. Such dimensions are reported in many spirit communicated books, such as those by Anthony Borgia.
But, as I have said, overall, Anita's book is well worth reading.
