"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.

Now this, her second book, goes more into what she learned during he NDE (Near death experience) Be prepared to read things that go against popular religious beliefs. Which for me feel like "ahha. I some how knew that!"
I caution you to avoid this book if you are happy holding on to anger and judgment of those who have abused or hurt you in anyway. Because this book shines a light that, at least for me, caused a powerful feeling of "Please love yourself, please forgive yourself. I forgive you and love you and want you to be filled with joy and love in this life!" for EVERYONE who has ever hurt or wronged me in anyway!
I also felt more compassion for myself, which is no doubt why I felt it so strongly for others. It all begins with loving yourself unconditionally! By the way, she explains that so beautifully in this book! They are both truly inspired books for sure and for certain.
I didnt think Anita could surpass her first book Dying To Be Me, but her newest book What If This Is Heaven is a grand slam. This book could of not come
at a better time from me. My brother crossed over to the realm three weeks ago. I am heartbroken, but I did find comfort in reading Anita’s book. In Anita’s book she writes about the cultral myths we have come to believe in, which really has inhibited us to live a life of joy. While I watched my brother pass away. I would say to myself i dont want to live my life waiting to die. I want to live my life with joy and excitement. This is what Anita gets across to her readers. We can live our life as if we are in heaven. At the end of each chapter there are questions to ask yourself, and tips and exercises to help the reader think how can you live your life from a place of joy. Anita’s book is refreshing and you can feel her love, compassion and joy through her writing. I would recommend What If This Is Heaven?. Why wait until you are dead to live a life of joy here on earth.
Every chapter brings a beautiful message, love yourself, speak your mind, be your true self and never base a decision on fear, trust your instincts. Some will read this and think we'll all that has been said before and I will say: not this wAy. I will be receiving the book today and can't wait to go back and highlight and review parts that I want to incorporate in my life. Loved it and love Anita for sharing this beautiful message. Namaste!
