Dying To Be Me. One of the most powerful books I’ve read.

Some books are transmissions of energy. There’s something ineffable beyond the words themselves, and you know that you’re getting a download as you connect with the text. I felt this the first time I picked up The Course In Miracles when I was fifteen, and Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now in 2004, and with this very new book…

Dying To Be Me: My Journey From Cancer, To Near Death, To True Healing, by Anita Moorjani is a transmission of insight that puts the keys to liberation in your hands.

The back story: Anita in a hospital bed. Stage 4 cancer, open lesions, organs shut down, the doctors tell her family to say their goodbyes as she slips into a thirty-hour coma…from which…she emerges — with luminous understanding about the cosmology of life. Within weeks of re-awakening from her coma, there is not a trace of cancer in her body. Her lesions, that were so deep that the doctors were planning reconstructive surgery, heal fully. Apparently there is no documented case of such absolute recovery from such pervasive cancer. But this healing miracle is only part of the gift that Moorjani has become.

The knowledge that Anita Moorjani brought back with her is pure soul tonic. I felt relief on a cellular level reading this book. My spirit exhaled, “Yes.”

Anita says many times throughout the book that the boundlessness of her multidimensional download is incredibly difficult to put into words, “Imagine trying to describe a new color to someone that they’ve never seen.” But beautifully and plainly spoken, she brings you beyond the confines of ideologies and judgements that bind us to sickness, self hatred, and fear. The “magnificence” she speaks of pours out self love, knows of oneness, trusts in joy, and bends time with intention.

Anita and I both spoke at a Hay House conference recently and I was able to hear her Near Death Experience and revelations in person. She is as modest and radiant as you might hope.

When she experienced “heaven as a state and not a place,” she felt, “The universe finally makes sense!” After experiencing Dying To Be Me, you might feel the same way.

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

Infidelity, sisterhood, and self-respect either way. #Lemonade and Love.

My feelings about infidelity, monogamy and commitment — and how they’ve evolved over time. How I define Divine Fidelity a la David Deida’s 3 stages of relationships. And my deep respect for Beyonce’s art and every woman’s choice of devotion.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.
