Anita Moorjani's NDE clears Grade 4B Lymphoma Cancer

Blogger's Note: Found this originally through the Martin Brofman Body Mirror board. I'm not sure it counts as an NDE because from what Anita says in the above vid she saw a probability in a deep coma in which she clinically died, but was not actually declared clinically dead. Her medical record will apparently be included in her book due in 2012. In any case, it's a pretty remarkable story of a complete turnaround from terminal, end-stage cancer.

Update: Anita's book is now out! It's called "Dying to Be Me" and is available here.

Abraham: An Appropriate Amount of Grief?

Abraham, Kansas City, KS  09/14/05

Abraham: How do you use your imagination?

Guest: I can't imagine not feeling grief if somebody that I love dies. And yet, you seem to be saying, "just get over it."  Is there an appropriate amount of grief? It's gotta be natural. If my dog died, I would just be floored.

Abraham: The perfect amount of grief is none, but you see...

Guest: How do you do that? You have your beloved dog there, and then he's not there and the relationship is different.

Abraham: We're going to go back and address that specifically, but before we do, we want to catch you in the trap that we've laid for you.

Guest: Okay. I'm willing.

Abraham: You're saying grief just seems inevitable under certain circumstances, and we say we know that there are things that are going to happen that are going to make you feel that way, but the emotion, the visceral feeling, that feeling in your body of grief, or fear, or despair, no matter what word you assign to it,  in every single case, it is because of your perception that something bad has happened to which you are having this awful emotional response and over which you have no control.

And we're just wanting to point out to you that while it is absolutely normal to have kneejerk responses to things that are happening, because of course you want that person, or that animal, to be in your experience longer,  you do have the ability to focus your way out of that grief.

We would not to say to anyone that you should not be sad when your mother dies, or when your father dies,  but we do want to say that the reason that you are sad is you've focused yourself in a way that is causing that sadness and you could just as easily focus yourself in a way that isn't so sad.

We watch people around funerals sometimes focusing in a way that brings them to their knees and makes them wail, and sometimes they focus in a way where the whole room laughs where they feel joy even though the circumstances have not changed. And it is that awareness that you can focus yourself...because you see the fear itself, or the negative emotion itself, the reason it feels so awful is, without exception, because of your perception of loss of control. Think about that.

Seth: Your Mind, like the Government, Is Not a Thing, But a Process

The Magical Approach, Session 8

Think of your own government in ideal terms for a moment. Its citizens are all individuals, with their own lives and interests. The government, if it has their loyalty, utilizes their energies in such a fashion that the majority are benefited, as is the government itself. Yet you cannot really put your finger on "the government," though you might mention the White House as the seat of its power. The government is composed of many people, of course and really extends all the way down the line, even to its least citizen, but the government can direct the use of energies, of goods, commerce, power, and so forth.

The people count upon the government to realistically define the conditions of the world, to have proper intelligence so that the activities in foreign lands are known, to keep up proper communications with other governments, and so forth. Now in some important respects the reasoning mind is like the government in this analogy. If the people in power are paranoid, then they overestimate the dangers of any given world situation. They overreact or over mobilize, using a disproportionate amount of energy and time for defense, and taking energies away from other projects. The reasoning mind acts in the same fashion when paranoid beliefs are in power. It therefore tells all of the citizens - or cells of the body - to mobilize for action, to be on the alert, to pare down all but necessary activities, and so forth.

When a government is paranoid, it even begins to cut down on the freedom of its own peoples, or to frown upon behavior that in freer times would be quite acceptable The same applies to the conscious mind in that situation. Now the people might finally revolt, or they will take certain steps to see that their freedom is restored, and so the body's cells will do the same.

So what we want, obviously, is to ensure that the conscious mind, with its reasoning processes, can make proper adjustments about the nature of the world and the individual citizens within it. I will return later to the purposes of man's conscious mind in nature, and part of that discussion will fall in our book.

Man's mind is really more of a process. It is not a completed thing, like an arm or leg, but a relationship and a process. That process has its source in what I can only call "natural reasoning."

Seth on Why Diets Don't Usually Work

Seth, The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 660

Seth: Diets do serve momentarily as outer signs that you are in control, and can seize the initiative; and as such they can be important. Usually, however; a pattern of unsuccessful diets occurs, operating then as a series of negative suggestions. The resistance is the result of conflicts in beliefs. You think you are overweight and accept this as reality. Steps to lose weight do not make sense in the face of that belief. They are 'unrealistic' or even impossible.

The same applies to underweight conditions. In each case frequent attention to the scales serves as another negative stimulus, reinforcing the condition. The effort to eat more will be as resisted by the chronically underweight, as the effort to refrain from eating will be by the obese.

Not only will these reactions occur, but opposing tendencies will be brought to bear. The concentration upon not eating, and the resulting tension, may instead cause increased consumption. And the underweight person may actually eat less the harder he or she tries to eat more —the latter being interpreted as an impossibility by the overriding belief in the underweight condition.

The best thing to do is to stop all such efforts, but instantly begin altering your beliefs as instructed in this chapter.

The reason why some lose-weight groups succeed in their therapy, at least momentarily, is that belief in the worth of the self is stressed. Unfortunately, weight is attacked as 'bad' or 'evil', symbolic moral judgments enter the act. The therapy seldom has long-reaching effects because from then on any gained weight is even more negatively charged.

How to Use Your Imagination

Abraham, Orlando, FL  12/15/01

Abraham: How do you use your imagination?

Well, first of all, you put you in the picture and then you live as you would like to live from an inside feeling place. You feel how your body feels; that's a good place to start. Now this is your call, you are the architect, you are the creator, so you can be as vital and alive and youthful and flexible and good feeling and slender and eager and happy as you want to be. And so, stand in your body, and put yourself anywhere that pleases you, on the golf course, in a swimming pool, on an airplane, in your motor coach. Put yourself in any environment and feel how good your body feels.

Since it is a virtual reality, make the temperature exactly as you want it to be; make your clothing exactly appropriate to that and breath in the deliciousness of the air that it there. Make the sky blue, put clouds in it if you want, make it sunrise, make it sunset, make it the middle of the day. You get to do whatever you're wanting to do.

Be there by yourself, or bring your favorite person in. Take a look at your favorite person. Give that person the mood you would like that person to have. Make that person playful, make that person beautiful, make that person happy. Make that person in perfect vibrational harmony with you and together go someplace you know the two of you would adore being. Have a conversation with that person; say what you would say under those conditions: bask, applaud, praise, appreciate, approve, listen, receive compliments, blush with them, return them, adore, be adored, move your body, see delightful things, have stimulation relative to the conversation, relative to anything that you care about.

Get on a subject that is really important to you. Solve problems. Find solutions. Sit with your president. Talk to anyone on the planet that you would like to talk to. Bring them in, give them the mood, give them the attitude, give them ability to hear you, you get the sense of this.

Some say, "Too much work."

We say, "Its your life."

You are walking into the future of whatever you do with your mind. So where is your mind? Is it perusing the puzzles and problems of the past? Is it perusing the problems of the world? Is it looking for reasons to feel good? Is it looking for reasons to feel bad? In other words, you get to focus wherever you want to focus.

Appeasement of Others Slows You Down

Abraham, North Los Angeles, CA  2/12/11

Abraham: There are so many people who have really overcome adversities that don't let themselves move out of, completely out of the vibration of adversity because it's still entertaining to explain the adversity. And, and here's the bottom line: (Softer) It makes the people who are still standing in the struggling pile willing to put up with your success if you tell them how long you've suffered before you triumphed, you see. And we say, it still slows you way, way down. You want to stop it. All of you. In other words, it still slows you way, way down. It slows you way, way down. (Applause)

But what it really speaks to is that so many people are appealing ...to the way they are perceived by others. 'So, what they think of me really matters a lot to me, Abraham, so I've got to soften what they think. And so, since I'm thriving in every possible way and look at them-they're not happy. They're not happy that I'm thriving. I'm making them jealous.'

And we say you may be inspiring them to understanding what's possible. 'No, they don't like me any more, they're not writing me letters', and we say good. 'They're not coming to my parties', and we say not a problem. In other words, when you want to appeal to them, when you want to appease THEM, then you've got to be enough LIKE them that you keep the connection going. And when you're keeping THAT connection going, you're breaking THIS Connection. 

(Applause) Really strong.

Get Obsessed with the Best of Your Life

Abraham - Los Angeles, CA  08/17/08

Abraham: We want you to become obsessed with the best parts of your life.

If you would become obsessed with the best parts of your life, which means:

you talk about it and

you think about it and
you play with it and
you observe it and
you take pictures of it and
you tell others about it and
you think about it and
you talk about it and
you observe it;

until you activate it in your vibration until more thoughts like it come.

If you would become obsessed with the best parts of your life, you would deactivate the parts of your life that you don't want.

when you are obsessed with the parts of your life that you don't want, and you keep them active, then there aren't enough helpers in the world to help you get to where you think you want to be.

Make Peace With Your Worst Case Scenario

Abraham, North Los Angeles, CA  03/06/2004

Abraham: It's an emotional journey first, more than it is a fixing something in physical form journey. In other words, you've got to find a way of not letting what you fear be so bad. You've got to make peace with your worst case scenario. And when you make peace with your worst case scenario, then you will discover that you can feel better, and then things will start coming back into alignment with you.

Jerry talked, often, about people that he knew, that were having financial disaster. And he would see them struggle against it, as things just got worse and worse and worse. And then the physical evidence, or manifestation, of their collapse began showing, as they would lose the car and the boat and the stuff and the house. And then he would notice that once it was gone, then things would start turning around.  But it bothered him that it all seem to have to be lost before it would start turning around.

And we explained that it was because as long as they were fighting against the things they feared so much, they kept it alive and active in their vibration. And it wasn't until it happened and there was nothing more to fear that they experienced a shift. Now you don't have to do that. In other words, you can turn it around at any point, but you get the sense of it.

Abraham on (Sexual) Choices, Morality, and Greater Perspective

Abraham-Hicks,  02-07-98

Abraham: Is one desire better than another?

Who gets to choose?
You do.

Can you make one choice now and another choice later?

Is it likely that your choices will continue to change and evolve?

Is there somebody watching you and keeping score of what you choose? 

Will there be punishment if you accidentally make the wrong choice? 

In other words, the punishment -- there is not anything offered like that -- but the suffering that you see as punishment is nothing greater than the negative emotion that you feel in any moment as you're disallowing your true self to flow through you. That's as bad as it gets. That guilt or anger or blame or frustration or depression that you feel because you're choosing thoughts that aren't in vibrational harmony with who you are? That's as bad as it gets.

So is there a great law that says monogamy is more spiritual than having many sexual partners? 
No. There is no such law.

Are there people who would be more joyful in monogamy? 

Are there people who would be more joyful eating frog legs? 

Who gets to choose? 
You do.

How do you know if you're making the right choice? 
You can feel it.

Will your choices evolve? 

Can you make wrong choices? 

Will other people agree? 

Are you going to be able to stand on your head in enough different ways to please them? 

Any one of them? 

Is that your job? 

Then what is your job? 
To feel good.

What does that mean? 
Seek harmony with Who You Are.

Does that mean that the God Within Me wants me to have lots of sexual partners? 

That means that the god within you wants you to find harmony between your desire and your belief. In other words, that energy wants you to create a clear path for it to flow. And you can't do that by saying, "That's wrong," because every time you see something is wrong you stop the flow.

Does that mean you have to embrace all things? 

It just means you must stop pushing against those things that you don't want to include because every time you push against them, you don't stop them, you include them, and now you're out of sync again and you say "it's your fault, you evil perpetrators of sin and violence and crime. If you would stop being so bad, I'd feel better." And we say that's true, but that's never going to happen. You must allow them to be that which they are while you selectively sift that which lines up your energy. And when you're in alignment with your source, all things are possible.
