My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing
by Anita Moorjani
I was so deeply touched by Anita’s story that I decided to share her message of healing with all of you. Anita’s story is truly inspirational.
In her book Anita relates how, after four years of fighting cancer, her body began shutting down, overcome by the malignant cells spreading throughout her body. With only a few hours of life left in her body, she entered into a remarkable near-death experience where she learned her inherent value and the cause of her disease. She writes:
“Why do I think I got cancer? I can sum up the answer in one word: fear. I was afraid of everything, including failing, being disliked, letting people down, and not being good enough.
“The way I see it, if we were encouraged to express who we truly are, we’d all be loving beings, each bringing our uniqueness to the world. Problems and strife come as a result of our not knowing who we are and not being able to show our inner beauty.
“It follows that the problems we see in the world aren’t from the judgment or hatred we have for others but for ourselves. Just as the key to my healing was unconditional self-love that eliminated fear, the key for a better world is for everyone to care for themselves the same way, realizing their true worth.”
Anita believes that our feelings about ourselves are actually the most important barometer for determining the condition of our lives.
