Anita Moorjani, Death and Near Death December 6, 2011

My husband Jim’s Aunt Harriet died last week so we went to the visitation. While there Jim’s sister Sue told me an amazing story the woman in the flower store told Sue when she ordered flowers. The story was about two people who saw a serious car accident. They went over to one of the cars to help the people inside. One was a younger woman who was critically injured. The other was an older woman wearing purple. The older woman said to release the dying woman’s seatbelt. The people who had come over couldn’t release it so the older woman told them to cut it. As soon as they cut it the woman died and the older woman disappeared into thin air. The two people who came over were shocked. They had both seen and spoken to the older woman.

The two people went to the young woman’s funeral. While there they saw a photo of the older woman in a family album. They asked a member of the family who she was and were told that she was the grandmother of the woman who’d died. The grandmother always wore purple and had died many years ago. It astounded them that the grandmother had come to be with her granddaughter when she was dying.

The woman at the flower store said she had heard many remarkable stories over the years. Jim’s sister said all religions are one and said she believed miracles happen to people regularly.

The story was especially meaningful to me at the time because of Aunt Harriet’s death. It is comforting to have another reminder that there is life beyond this life and that Soul is immortal. Death is not something to be feared but a time when we simply move on to another more beautiful world and when we die someone we love will be there to greet us.

I listened to an interview today about a woman, Anita Moorjani, who had a near death experience and was also visited by a loved one. In this case, her father. Without the physical body and limitations of culture she and her father shared even more love than they had when he was alive. Her father explained to her that her mission on earth wasn’t over and that it wasn’t time for her to die. She knew she had a choice whether to come back or move on and chose coming back partly because of her love for her husband.

Anita had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and all her organs shut down. The doctor thought she was dead. She slipped into a coma and while out of her body had the most remarkable and beautiful near death experience I’ve ever heard. When she returned she had a miraculous recovery from cancer.

The video is below is long but well worth listening to. Anita has a book coming out this March titled Dying to Be Me.

I have also included links on my own spiritual blog to Anita’s interviews. Her experience harmonizes remarkably with my own understanding of life and death as a Christian Science practitioner. I wrote a blog entry about the metaphysical significance of Anita’s healing in my blog at http://stirlingwattscs.com/commentary-on-anita-moorjani-interviews
