C16-38a “DYING TO WAKE UP”: Dr. Rajiv Parti’S afterlife journey.

Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Dr. Rajiv Parti airs from September 20th on. 


DYING TO WAKE UP: A Doctor’s Voyage into the Afterlife and the Wisdom he Brought Back on August 23, 2016. Dying to Wake Up is the true story of Dr. Rajiv Parti’s astounding near-death experience, his subsequent transformation, and the wisdom he brought back from the afterlife.

“In my old life, I used to put people to sleep. Now I wake them up. And I have woken up too,” said Parti.

As the chief anesthesiologist at Bakersfield Heart Hospital in Bakersfield, CA, Rajiv Parti, MD was responsible for putting his patients to sleep while undergoing complicated and delicate heart surgeries. Although he was renowned in his field and skilled in his profession, he had somehow lost compassion for his patients, coming to view them as “profit centers for wealth and prestige.” Showy cars and a mansion in the “bulls-eye” of his prestigious, double-gated neighbourhood had become his one and only religion – materialism.

Then, on Christmas Day, 2010, Dr. Parti underwent an emergency surgery for a life-threatening infection. While under the knife, he had a near-death experience (NDE) that changed his life completely. Watching his body from above the operating table, Dr. Parti was completely lucid as his “untethered consciousness” traveled away from the operating theatre to his mother’s home in India, the brink of Hell, a reunion with his deceased father, an eye-opening review of several past lives, and finally, to an encounter with two powerful angels who led him to The Being of Light.

Dr. Raymond Moody, the physician and author who coined the term “near-death experience” in his best-selling book Life After Life, says in his Foreword to Dying to Wake Up, “The story contained in this book is one of transcendence and transformation. It is one of the most outstanding and complete near-death experiences I have ever heard in almost 50 years of investigating this phenomenon. It is powerful even to a veteran researcher like myself. It is remarkable.”

Dr. Parti was so profoundly affected by his NDE he underwent a near complete personality transformation in the weeks and months following his operation. He sloughed off the materialistic trappings he and his family had accumulated over time, selling his mansion and all his expensive cars. He began to reconnect with his wife and children, especially his eldest son, to whom he had often been abusive, and he gave up his anesthesiology practice to help people overcome “diseases of the soul” like addiction, depression and chronic pain through a more holistic, “consciousness-based” healing system that the angels had revealed to him.


Called by bestselling author Anita Moorjani “powerful, deeply spiritual, and transformative, not just for the man who experienced it, but for the person who reads about it, too,” and by New York Times bestselling co-author Paul Perry “(a) book about death, life, transcendence, transformation, spiritual mystery and true love and compassion”, Dying to Wake Up will give you a new understanding of the spiritual universe that surrounds all of us.

Dying to Wake Up is co-written by Paul Perry, the co-author of four New York Times bestsellers, including Evidence of the Afterlife, Closer to the Light, Transformed by the Light and Saved by the Light, which was made into a popular movie by Fox-TV.
