152. Anita Moorjani

Anita MoorjaniAnita 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.

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 multilingual 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.

  1. He walked into the Art Store to get a specific tube of paint, the clerk said ‘oh you use oils?’, he said ‘oh no! I’m not an artist, it’s for my daughter’.
    The clerk laughed and said ‘oh but we’re all artists, my dear’. ;)

    I have to disagree about putting people in categories, hard for one may not be for another, what one thinks is hard or easy, is only a projection.

  2. I’ll accept the idea that psychological factors play a role in the cause of disease. The difficulty lies in quantifying those factors. However, the role of genetics as a causative factor in disease is greatly overestimated by the public simply because folks would rather continue eating meat & dairy – coffee – soft drinks, skipping exercise, not sleeping enough and not getting enough sun. So one often hears the claim, “It’s bad genes.” This is also a useful belief system for the pharmaceutical industry which is pouring millions into drugs that will address these genetic factors. I’m not saying medical miracles don’t happen but cancers and a host of other diseases wouldn’t be an issue if folks would simply clean up diet and lifestyle.

  3. Thanks Rick, Anita
    I heard Anita tell her story prior but quite enjoyed some of the points brought out further along – about fear and suffering, why we try to control, why we hurt others and what ends all of this.

    One small point I’d just raise about meditation. Anita is slightly off there, seeing meditation as a means to get where she feels she can already be without it. Many people who awaken stop for similar reasons. Rather than seeing meditation as a means to get there, it’s better to see it as a means to culture the vehicle. The settling give an opportunity for the development of the subtle body to allow a much fuller experience of life to unfold, beyond awakening to our inner nature. Igor talked about this in his interviews, for example. That’s a development that can go well past most peoples understanding of what we’re capable of.

  4. wow…i had thought to glance at a few comments before listening to interview…and now, hours later…am dizzy from all the conversation. amazed at all the energy put forth…how thoughtful and articulate most commenters are. since i have not been a participant in these exchanges, and gather that there are many ‘regulars’ who seem to know each other quite well, i have a question for you, JILL. you respond quite often to posts and speak w/a voice of ‘authority,’ and you make reference to your working w/many ppl…so i’m wondering if you are a teacher, or have some connection to rick/batgap the puts you in a “special” position to address comments/concerns expressed on this site? i resonate w/what you have to say. it just stands out to me as having a more authoritative flavor than others posters…and i’m curious. to EVERYONE…i appreciate the depth of sharing.

    Glad you resonate – If you hear that voice of Self speaking- you must have already recognized it within…same Self..
    No self definitions here in terms of ‘teacher’ – dropped that label a while ago…but do work privately with whoever shows up.. to help clarify experiences and lend support….
    Yes friend of Rick’s – came aboard last year to support the site in whatever way possible..brought some teacher friends to it for interviews and post whenever the spirit moves me..
    Glad you came aboard to batgapia- it’s a wonderful community so feel free to jump in…it’s like a little sangha..and no one bites – well almost no one –
    You can enter the dreamscape at any point at any time whenever it interests you…the more the merrier..

  6. Thank you, Anita for your overflowing heart and sincere presence and love. Listening to you speak is a huge heart opening. Deeply enlivening, here and now. Laurie

  7. I feel so deeply fortunate to live in a time where these interviews are possible. What a valuable and profound gift you give to use with these interviews Rick. Overwhlemed in gratitude. Thank you!!!!! Laurie

  8. Thank you Anita, for being so fully merged in the complete one love and simultaneously aware of this human existence in which the separateness longs for its return. The beautiful tension of opposites so fully expressed by your being, your heart, and your articulating. Your way of simply being who you are invites us all back to this one love… a transmission of the one love is who you are. Thank you! Laurie

  9. Wonderful & grounded in the reality of life.
    Fear is indeed the bugbear! Loved the genuine approach to what is really so simple at the end of the day.

    Bernard
