"So many people have such a fear of death that they are afraid to live life to its fullest measure. Anita Moorjani does a brilliant job of demystifying both life and death by first breaking the spell of our conditioned beliefs and then giving us the practical tools to be reborn in the same life. This book will free your soul and teach you that you don't have to die to go to heaven."
~ Dr. Joe Dispenza, New York Times best-selling author of "You Are The Placebo"
"The richest literature on near-death experiences moves beyond mere descriptions of the afterlife. The greatest lessons concern how to live this life to the fullest. In her newest book, What If This Is Heaven?, Anita Moorjani addresses deeply held misconceptions in our modern global culture. Her evolving wisdom empowers readers toward much greater health and harmony: to truly love oneself in the face of life's challenges is integral to every human's fulfillment here on earth."
~Eben Alexander, MD., neurosurgeon and author of Proof of Heaven
"This is a beautiful book, one to savor and one to contemplate as you learn to see beyond the cultural misconceptions of what being a spiritual being in human form is all about. Anita Moorjani has an authenticity that shines through every page. Do yourself a favor, grab a hot tea and snuggle up for a journey into what really matters. Highly recommend."
"A deeply thoughtful exploration of life's most debilitating myths, offering fabulously credible and empowering illumination. I loved this touching book and the emotions it evoked within me, written powerfully, yet still very down-to-earth. Waste not a minute more, read it for yourself now."
~Mike Dooley, NY Times bestselling author of Infinite Possibilities
From the Author
Several of you have written to me saying "How can this possibly be heaven? If this is heaven, why does it feel like hell??" And I want to say that I'm actually not surprised by that reaction, and even when I came up with the title, I expected some of you to say that to me!! So let me explain. Many years ago, my life was hell too. I was bullied very badly as a child, and was taunted and discriminated against for the color of my skin and my family origin--something I had no control over. That really made my life miserable. And it certainly felt like hell when I was going through cancer, being in constant pain and fear for all those years.
Life truly was a struggle for me, and I lived in immense fear for a huge part of my life. I had always believed that life happens to us. In other words, I believed that I was a victim of my circumstances, so I was always reacting to life instead of creating life. Of course I didn't believe I created my life circumstances. Who would create a childhood of bullying and discrimination, all of which shaped my thinking? Who would choose to be born as a woman into a culture that still believes women are inferior to men? Who would create cancer in their own life? Of course I was a victim of my circumstances. Or so I thought...until I "died".
It's been 10 years since I faced death and came out the other side. Now when I look back at these past 10 years, I can see that my life is so drastically different from what it was prior, that I sometimes wonder whether I actually came back from death, or whether I'm still in the other realm. All the fear I used to have, all the pain, all the insecurity - they are all gone! So much so that I wonder whether I'm still dead and this is heaven! Every day, I get to do stuff I love to do! Of course this feels like heaven!
But then I read the letters I have received over the last few years from so many of you, where you share your pain, and your fears. And also, I take a look around at the world around us. And it all brings me back down to earth. And I wonder, "Why can't we all create this state of heaven for ourselves? What is preventing us from doing it? Why did it take death for me to realize how to live my life? Isn't it a wasted life if people only learn the truth of how to live when they die?"
Those are the questions that inspired me to write this book. I don't want you to have to wait until you die to learn how to live. Remember, we are all connected, and I feel what you feel. This book comes from my heart to yours.

Some of the chapters are literally conversations that she had with friends or people she met. Conversations in which she educated them about various topics. These parts of the book are annoying to even read. Because even though the book is very short, under 200 pages, it is padded with repititions of her dying of cancer, and details that add nothing from conversations with radio hosts, etc. Like pondering which apples to buy in the grocery store, the radio announcer breaking for a commercial while her husband brings her tea, etc. In fact, the book left me feeling really depressed. Because she stresses the importance of supportive family and friends, and how her amazing husband helps her. This makes those of use who have nobody supportive in our lives feeling pretty despaired. One big message in the book is that you should look to yourself for answers, not doctors, alternatives, self-help books, or gurus. The exercises are repetitive. I wonder if Hay House has once again taken something lovely and inspiring and ruined it by forcing the author to come up with another book. I know her first one had to be rewritten, Dyer said it was not good enough. But his death and therefore insight that this one was not really for prime time is perhaps why this is an ok read, but not great.
