When a devastating illness strikes us or someone we love, we want to know “Why?” Our heart cries out: “Why him?” or “Why her?” or “Why me?” We may even demand an answer to: “God, how could You let this happen?”
This article is about potential answers to these heart-wrenching questions. The answers are part of a story of an astounding recovery from a totally hopeless situation. I have seen many hopeless situations in my medical career, and even some turnarounds that seemed pretty miraculous, but nothing that even comes close to this story. Since the healing was so incredibly unlikely, and the documentation so extensive and credible, it merits very careful evaluation and consideration.
The story is about Anita Moorjani, a woman who developed Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She was terrified of chemotherapy and refused the standard medical treatment. Over the next several years after her diagnosis, the disease advanced relentlessly, invading much of her body. When she was finally brought to the hospital she was nearly comatose, every organ system in her body was failing, and there was no doubt that she only had a few hours to live. At this extremely advanced stage of her disease, even if chemotherapy could have destroyed the tumor cells that were consuming her body, the toxic byproducts of the dying cells themselves would have killed her. There was no hope.
But instead of dying, her organ systems somehow repaired themselves overnight, and her tumor began to melt away. Despite how unlikely it sounds, within a few days she was completely cancer free. There is no reasonable physical explanation for this, and it is so far outside what is medically possible that some other process was clearly at work. But as spectacular as it is, if this was all there was to Anita’s story, this would just be another surprising case of the spontaneous remission of incurable cancer to add to the growing list of such cases. But Anita’s incredible healing was accompanied by a near death experience while her body was in complete shutdown, that first night of her hospitalization. Both the cause of her illness and the means by which it might be cured were explained to her while she was comatose and experiencing the NDE.
I present Anita’s story here because the explanations from her NDE that she reports to us echo some of the most important messages contained in my blog articles. In brief, she tells us that it was explained to her that each our lives are just the culmination of all the thoughts and beliefs we have held as true. She also tells us it was explained that some of these beliefs and thoughts caused her cancer. She learned that it is our beliefs that hold our illusions in place, and when suffering manifests in our lives, it is always a product of this process.
During her NDE, Anita was offered a choice of whether she wanted to be cured or not. She could allow the collapse of her body to end her life and not return to it. If she chose to be cured, she could continue to live in the world, but this time free of her illusions and the disease these illusions produced. She chose a cure so she could bring this information back to us, and she would do so in a way that would capture our attention. Her message can be summed up quite simply. Our physical diseases and illnesses are generated by the contents of our minds. The “impossible” cure that brings this idea to our attention should motivate us to carefully consider its veracity..
