Anita Moorjani: Lose the Need to Be Liked Finally Start Liking Yourself
Some people read books, meditate on mountains and smoke weird substances to try and penetrate the mysteries of the universe, reach deep notions of truth, love and understanding. All Anita Moorjani had to do was develop terminal cancer and face her death. Lucky for us she came back to tell the story and she’s here with us today to share her story of what life looks like on the other side of death and how seeing it from there can change everything.
I’ve had the privilege of interviewing a lot of amazing different people, and one of my absolute favorites was Anita Moorjani. Anita was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and doctors told her family she was just hours away from death. It was at this point that she “crossed over” and then returned again into this world with a clearer understanding of her life and purpose on earth. This understanding subsequently led to a total recovery of her health and a powerfully inspiring message that she shares with our community.
Every health-seeker and soul-searcher needs to listen to this call! It will change everything about how you live life while you’re still alive!
The Best Bits
(Sorry, I’m not putting the times. I just think you should prioritize this entire interview. It’s SO worth it.)
- How her need to be liked kept her from truly liking and loving herself.
- How a very fearful life lead her directly into the things she was afraid of.
- Learn why she maintained an obsessively clean diet before cancer and a playful, more indulgent diet after cancer.
- How the more she researched natural cancer therapies, the more fearful she became.
- How the stress of relationships played into Anita’s increasingly life-threatening health issues.
- The key difference in her point of view that has changed everything in her health and her life.
- What does fear feel like and how can you recognize that you’re getting yourself into energetic trouble.
“I didn’t realize that all my decisions were based on fear, on the idea that ‘I better do this because if I don’t, this will happen.”
“Start asking yourself, ‘What would make me happy?’ When we are living in the place of fear, we are in our head. We need to shift down to the place of our heart, ‘What do I feel like eating? What do I feel like doing?'”
“I believe the healthiest people are the ones who are the happiest.”
“It doesn’t matter how long or how short my life is, but that the quality of my life needs to be happy and joyful.”
“It’s really important to do things because you want to, not because you’re afraid of the consequences.”
“Being means not worrying about being liked. It means not worry about pleasing people. It means not forsaking yourself, not putting yourself last. Not making yourself small so somebody else can feel big. It means expressing yourself–your uniqueness. It means telling yourself that you’re ok–it’s ok to be different. It’s ok to be whatever culture or colour you are. It means asking yourself questions and being unafraid of answering the questions.”
About Anita Moorjani
Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multi lingual and, from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese and two Indian dialects simultaneously, and later learned French at school.
She had been working in the corporate field for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April of 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience in early 2006 has tremendously changed her perspective on life. Her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm. She works on the premise that our inner world (consciousness) is our primary reality, and if our internal state is healthy and strong, then our external world will align itself and fall into place as a result.
She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life’s most adverse situations, as she is the living proof of this possibility.Read more about Anita’s experience in her book, Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing here.
