Listening to this audiobook for me, was like spending nine hours listening to Caroline Myss recall a long wet dream she once had about how clever and insightful she had become about every aspect of the human condition. I say this because what Caroline says is painfully simple, but I found myself being asked to travel through my chakras and talk to my archetypes before I could realise that I have the power of choice in my life. Oh my god! It says volumes to me that it was recorded in front of a studio audience. Ego plays a large part in this work, just as the overly complicated concepts seek to convince us Caroline has discovered something liberating. Let me save you the money and the time - she has not. Well not as far I could tell. Of course I may have to spend some time consulting my inner child and saboteur before being sure of this, but having a seventh chakra which is open to spiritual energy my sixth chakra is telling you.... this is drivel. Caroline seeks to ground the books relevance to the average reader in chapters on using the principles of energy anatomy to address financial, relationship and career issues and choices. She regales us with wit(less) tales of how a friend was in a relationship with her husband because of money, and thought her life had hit the skids when he died and she had to sell the house. But no!! This was a spiritual gift because her friend used her quilting skills to teach others how to quilt and in doing so met new people she never would have met while in the marriage, and used a hobby to generate income. Well who would have thought! A death makes someones life radically change and forces them to be resourceful. Blow me down with a feather. Caroline wants me to believe this occurred because the archetype of the prostitute had dominated her friends life, until the death made way for spiritual energy to talk to her and move her forward. If you think this is not arbitrary, buy this audiobook. Sigh....
Someone else giving the lecture.
Throughout the book she told illustrative stories. She didn't use names but through her words and intonation alternatively berated people, talked about people as if they were beneath her and generally came across as mean spirited.
I liked the core of her message. I just didn't like her.
Yeah. Decent content. Maybe I'd pick up a book by her but I will never buy an lecture by her again. She put on voices for people. Demeaning voices. She told a story about a long time "friend" who would have to recognize herself in the book who she trashed. I just don't need to take spiritual lessons from someone who is so condescending and rude.
I really don't know, I don't recommend it
I cannot overemphasise how irritating Caroline's rambling is, I don't like the way she articulates things and she makes life far more complex than it needs to be
She goes into a lot of detail! She goes into far too much detail!
I wont comment on this, this was my first experience of her material and I just couldn't relate to her over complication and over analysis of life
I think life is meant to be simple and Myss over complicates it, you'll probably be ready to kick the bucket by the time you've finished going through all the analyses she's conducted and actually understood her paradigms
What an incredible lecture on how to truly hear and connect with you mind, body and soul. My first experience with Myss has me ready to dive into more of her materials!
Understanding how thought energy moves through the peronal chakra centers is wonderful info everyone should be privy to. The four archetypes she discusses are very helpful and interesting as they apply to every human on this planet. She uses God to explain much of what I think we do via law of attraction with our own energy but all in all... This is a great audio!! For a more cleaner message though, I would recommend Abraham Hicks which is on audio or YouTube for free.
Ms Myss does a fantastic job tutoring her listeners disseminating fascinating wisdom and experiences. I felt so close to her in this journey, her words reached me before they were spoken.
Maybe "The Map"
Hard to say - they were all great!
The Chakras, the Archetypes...the Intuition I have been tapping into all reflect her teaching. I intend to internalize her teachings as closely as I can while exploring the potential of my life.
She's fantastic and now a great influence on this "cradle Catholic" gone astray. I will definitely be listening to more and wishing I could meet Ms Myss in person!
Caroline Myss always tends to come across as authentic no matter what the case. There is something about her attitude and conviction which fuels her words. They penetrate deep if you are ready accept the responsibility with the ultimate knowledge. Caroline's knowledge and openness to all make her hard to pinpoint any egoistical acceptance seeking done by most who claim to have a proven method to healing.
Loved listening to her voice. Thoroughly enjoyed the series. She straight to the point and no nonsense in her delivery.
