Who is Raj Parti, MD?

My Background

I bring my expertise not only as a pain management specialist but also as a near-death experiencer. I’ve had a rare glimpse into heaven, hell, and previous lives. 

After years of enjoying great success in my career as a Pain Management Specialist and heart anesthesiologist, I was very focused on the material, worldly effects of financial rewards. I had a big house, luxury cars, and the best of everything!

But several years ago, I had a profound near-death experience (NDE) during surgery that led to a personal spiritual awakening. It transformed my life forever. I wrote about my experiences in my bestselling book “Dying to Wake Up.” I now help to heal others through Conscious Based Healing (CBH) methods including Past Life Regression.

My Journey

The Story became one of Peace, Transcendence, and Grace.
But it didn't start out that way...

My near death experience is unforgettable. When I want to re-live it I can take a deep breath, close my eyes, and I am right back there, hovering over my body in the operating room as the surgeons work feverishly to save my life. I can easily re-live all of the events of my near-death experience, from my meeting with my departed father on the rim of Hell, to the past lives that explained my problems with ego and prescription medicine, to the glorious meeting I had with Guardian Angels – Raphael and Michael – coming to me out of a field of flowers that glowed with the ineffable power of pure love. It was there, in this heavenly place, that they gave my life new direction, saying, “Now it is your time to heal the diseases of the soul: addiction, depression, chronic pain and cancer.” The beings I met on the other side gave me information that transformed my life and gave me new purpose. Now my goal is to practice the consciousness-based medicine they taught me, a form of medicine that focuses on the mantra “Forgive, Love and Heal.” It is based on seven eternal truths they revealed to me:
  • Consciousness exists outside of the body.
  • There is life after death.
  • We have past lives and our experiences therein can shape our current realities.
  • We are all connected to each other because we are all made of the one and same energy that manifests as differentiated matter.
  • Divine beings exist to help and guide us.
  • There are different levels of consciousness.
  • There is one, all-pervading, supreme love and intelligence that is the source of the entire universe, and that love is the supreme source of creation.

It is through the study of these eternal truths that readers can achieve the benefits of the near-death experience without having to die.

Teaching these truths has become my life’s purpose, my dharma, and I have to say it is very satisfying. Where I used to put people to sleep as an anesthesiologist, I now wake them up by using this spiritual medicine that combines Western and Eastern practices with meditation and other conscious disciplines to access the healing forces in the universe.

Consciousness based medicine is the most effective way of healing “diseases of the soul,” chronic pain, addiction, and depression.

I have left the practice of anesthesiology and am now living my beliefs. I tour extensively, telling my story to interested audiences, holding workshops to demonstrate methods of healing.

I also believe that we all have spirit guides and the ability to communicate with them. One doesn’t need to die to tap into the spiritual power of the universe, only become versed in a more consciousness-based lifestyle.

At its core, DYING TO WAKE UP is about transformation, the readers and mine. Where most near death experience books focus on the incident itself and offer very little take home information, this book and my teachings in consciousness-based healing contain eternal truths that can be applied to an individual’s life without having to nearly die.

It healed my spirit and changed my destiny. Helping others do the same is now my goal in life. A dream of spiritual peace is a common one. I want to show people how to attain it.

My Condition Worsens: Dr. Parti’s near death experience took place Christmas Day, 2010, two years after surgery that successfully eliminated cancer from his body. A follow up surgery led to an abdominal infection that required several more surgeries, leading Dr. Parti to become addicted to pain pills and anti-depressants. Still the infection got worse. Rushed 100 miles to UCLA hospital with a 105-degree temperature and an infection that had spread to his blood, Dr. Parti feared this may be his last night on earth.

UCLA Surgery: Dr. Parti checked-in to UCLA hospital where his doctor tried to fight the blood infection with powerful antibiotics. Deeply concerned by the infection’s lack of response, surgery was ordered for the next day, a Christmas present that amounted to a lengthy abdominal operation and a near-death experience that changed his life.

Surgery and NDE: Twenty minutes after surgery started, Dr. Parti found himself floating near the ceiling of the operating theatre. With all of his senses intact, Dr. Parti watched as the surgeons cleaned infection from his abdomen. He even heard the anesthesiologist tell a dirty joke that he repeated back to him later. Dr. Parti’s consciousness had left his body.

Hell and My Father: Humor turned to horror as Dr. Parti went to a pitch dark realm, infused with the smell of burning meat and raucous with the sounds of crying souls. Hell! Dr. Parti had gone to Hell for neglecting the emotional needs of his patients and family. On the brink of Hell, Dr. Parti cried for help, and an unlikely soul appeared, his father.

Past Lives, Life Review: His father led Dr. Parti away from Hell, through a tunnel and then he disappeared. Alone on the other side, Dr. Parti witnessed two past lives, each of which provided understanding into problems he had now, his addiction and his sense of entitlement. With these revelations behind him, Dr. Parti wanted an opportunity to change his ways.

Other Side of the Tunnel: He moved through another tunnel and was greeted by his guardian angels who imparted divine knowledge. After promising they would always be with him, the angels directed Dr. Parti to a Light Being brighter than a thousand suns. Before the Light Being, Dr. Parti was given a new direction in life, to help people battle the diseases of the soul – the same ones he had himself!

Professional Transformation: Dr. Parti was transformed by the light. He resigned his job as chief anesthesiologist and began practicing for his new purpose in life. “I had felt the power of the source, my own heart calling me. The divine Light Being’s instructions were very vivid in my mind. I needed to follow my Dharma and help people with diseases of the soul.
