There is so much more value here than you might expect from a book about a near-death experience (NDE). You will find it not only comforting with regard to death (your own or those you love) but it’s an affirmation of life, and inspiring in general.
Just as important, you’ll find it helpful in many practical ways.
Is This Book for You?
You can benefit from this book if:
- You or someone you know is facing death
- You’re grieving the death of a loved one, including a pet
- You’re facing illness of any kind, serious or otherwise
- You’re experiencing challenging emotions such as depression or lack of interest in life
- You want to feel more whole, healthy, and vibrant
- You simply want to feel better in general … happier, more at peace, more purposeful, etc.
- You would like an enlightened way to understand or experience life and your place in it
As you can see, I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. And it’s a book that I envision myself reviewing periodically for my own benefit.
How It Unfolds
Anita begins by setting the stage with a brief biography of relevant parts of her life. She describes the experience of becoming incapacitated with terminal cancer, and I love that she describes its unfolding not only on the outside but from “the inside” as well.
But fairly quickly, she jumps right into the NDE. This is the part I want everyone to read who has ever lost anyone to death, or is facing it themselves. The way she describes it is breath-taking and eye-opening. It’s beautiful, actually, and you’ll never forget it.
And just as extraordinary is the explanation of how she then “came back” and proceeded to completely heal. Yes, completely! And how she learned to allow for this “unfolding of miracles” as she puts it.
Life Even Through Death
So it’s not just a book about death and what happens at that moment.
It’s even more a book about life; about who and what you are; about healing and wholeness … and about allowing your whole world to transform.
It’s fascinating to read how you — as your essence — live even through death. And much more freely than you probably are now!
So what does that mean?
How can you live with that same freedom even as you live your life?
Insights and Practices
In her quest to help others through her experience, she shares her thoughts about how you can apply what she’s come to know.
From her expanded understanding of reality, she shares in a way that you can apply in everyday life:
- Why she got sick and how she healed
- How to connect with the soul of your magnificence
- Experiencing profound freedom in your life
- Trusting the wisdom of the infinite self
- What it means to Be (allow) vs. Do — and thus experience vast inner peace and a beautiful flow in your life
You’ve really got to read it yourself since there’s so much more to it than I could even put words to; pretty apropos given its expansive nature.
And I’m sure you’ll find your own gems within it, probably new and different insights and practices each time you read it, depending on your perspectives at that time.
It’s got a richness and depth to it that I enjoy applying and know I will for years to come.
Also Recommended …
Soon after reading the book, I came upon her audio Deep Meditation for Healing. Just like the book, I love it. Anita does a beautiful job of taking you into a relaxed, receptive state and reminding you of your magnificence, freedom, and power. You’ll actually feel it and come away more whole and with a new perspective.
It doesn’t replace the book, but it’s an awesome adjunct to it, or it could even stand on its own.
