600. Anita Moorjani

Anita MoorjaniAnita Moorjani is the New York Times bestselling author of What If This Is Heaven?: How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us from Experiencing Heaven on Earth and Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing. A beloved international speaker, she lives in the United States with her husband, Danny, and has dedicated her life to empowering the minds and hearts of people with her story of courage and transformation. Anita was born in Singapore to Indian parents and grew up in Hong Kong speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously. Prior to her near-death experience, she worked in the corporate world.

Some of the points discussed in this conversation:

  • A review of Anita’s near-death experience: “It felt like love was coming from the whole universe, I was bathed in it”.
  • How it changed her life, physically and spiritually, and continues to do so.
  • A brief discussion of her 2nd book, “What if This is heaven?” – how to create heaven on earth.
  • Focusing on what you want, and not on fear.
  • Anita’s new book, “Sensitive is the New Strong”.
  • The spectrum from sociopathy to empathy.
  • Empaths can become doormats, feeling and absorbing others’ pain and not differentiating it from their own; always giving but struggling to receive.
  • The people society regards as powerful are often the most aggressive and insensitive. Sensitive people shy away from power, but if the world were run by empaths we would heal hunger in a minute. We can’t have empathic leaders without a grassroots shift in collective consciousness.
  • Learning to follow your inner guidance and not give away your power.
  • Sensitivity is seen as weakness and should be seen as strength.
  • Empathy and spiritual development should be major components of education.
  • How to balance strength with sensitivity.
  • How to give without being depleted.
  • The importance of taking time for practice, to recharge.
  • How to know if one is an empath.
  • Empaths struggle until they learn that their 6th sense is a gift.
  • Can non-empaths become empaths?
  • Spiritual awakening does not make one an empath.
  • Are empaths more vulnerable to disease?
  • Empaths may be more amenable to alternative medicine than others.
  • Spiritual development is a marathon, not a sprint.
  • Empath’s inability to say ‘no’ creates problems for them.
  • Anita’s answer to a woman who lost her 14-year-old son to leukemia a year ago.
  • Integrating spiritually transcendent experiences into our earthly life once we “return.”
  • Dealing with skeptics and debunkers.
  • Your body is more powerful than you have been led to believe. Having a will to live. Create a life that you love.
  • Sensitive people often have repressed egos. If spiritual teachers tell them ego is bad, they may repress even more.
  • Ground yourself. Entrain with the earth’s cleansing energies.
  • Don’t worry about creating boundaries. Expand your energy and you won’t need them.
  • We are all interconnected. We are all one consciousness.

578. Ingrid Honkala

Ingrid HonkalaIngrid Honkala, Ph.D., was born in Bogota, Colombia, where she grew up with her parents and three sisters. From the moment she drowned in a tank of cold water at the age of nearly three, Ingrid was aware of other dimensions of life than those most of us normally experience. She was also gifted with the wise input of “Beings of Light” who gave her invaluable insights and assistance as she faced the challenges of growing up, falling in love, and finding her professional destiny as a research scientist and oceanographer. Despite many hardships, she accomplished her dreams, becoming not just a successful marine scientist, world traveler, and mom, but also a mentor and a giver of light.

Through her compelling life adventure that journeys from her native Colombia to Europe and her eventual home in the United States — and from a deadly war zone to underwater explorations and a NASA research center — Ingrid reveals how any human experience can be illumined from within. If we are willing to pay attention to subtle signals, take our intuition seriously, and forgive our most challenging difficulties, anyone can experience a brightly guided life. Throughout her life, Ingrid has been guided to meet and help many people on their journey to become aware of a deeper reality and reconnect with their inner wisdom.

In her autobiography, A Brightly Guided Life: How a Scientist Learned to Hear her Inner Wisdom, Ingrid reveals how after having her Near Death Experience, the first glimpses of heaven were revealed to her and the doors that allow her to communicate with Beings of Light were opened. Since then a myriad of experiences that many could call mystical and perhaps impossible have crossed her path. However, the Beings of Light have made it clear to her that she is not here to convince anyone about anything but to be a giver of Light. To accomplish this purpose, she has been guided through an amazing journey of unimaginable challenges, awakenings, and miracles where along the way she became the vehicle to help others to rise up from some of the deepest states of hopelessness and bring them back to life. For all this she is eternally grateful and committed to continue awakening, growing, and serving the Light.
