Anita Moorjani - Normalizing Conversations About the Afterlife
"Do you make your choices out of fear? Does your culture or religion expect you to behave in a certain way? Do you always consider what others may think of you when making your decisions? If so, living a life of inauthenticity like this can lead to devastating illness and disease, according to our guest today, best-selling author and spiritual teacher Anita Moorjani, who learned this firsthand. Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents and moved to Hong Kong at the age of two. She had been working in the corporate field for many years before being diagnosed with terminal cancer in April of 2002. In early 2006, while gravely ill in the hospital, doctors told her family she was just hours away from death. It was at this point that she “crossed over” into the Afterlife and experienced a realm of complete love and clarity. She then returned again into this world with a pristine understanding of her life and purpose on earth. This understanding subsequently led to a total recovery of her health. Doctors could not explain her rapid transition and called it a “medical miracle.” Today she discusses her fascinating and moving near-death experience which has led to her tremendously changing her perspective on life. She asks us to consider our feelings about the Afterlife and how, if we live in fear, it will color our physical life and how we choose to live. When your life is driven from a place of fear, you don’t follow your heart. Anita invites us to instead, make choices from a place of love. What makes you passionate? What do you love to do? What if we made choices from that place instead? Anita reveals that she believes that the whole reason she had deadly cancer was because she made so many of her personal decisions based on fear. She didn’t want to go against her culture or the religion in which she was raised. She didn’t want to disappoint her family and friends. They expected her to commit to an arranged marriage and not have a career after she was married. She had never followed her own heart. She was living a life of inauthenticity and realized she was forsaking herself. She realized all of this during her journey into the Afterlife. Anita also discusses how to navigate through this life as a sensitive person. She realized she was extremely empathic, and her latest book is “Sensitive is the New Strong.” She will talk about this and related topics at the upcoming Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles held Feb 10-13, 2023. Lisa Garr will be presenting at the Expo, too! Info: anitamoorjani.com and consciouslifeexpo.com.
