    This audiobook is a poweful program that will give you a deeply personal, revelatory experience of your soul. What is required is that you "enter your castle" and explore with great intent the contents of your "seven mansions" and their many rooms. You'll be introduced to a new spiritual renaissance as Caroline Myss explains the nature of mysticism and its experiences.

    Overall

    This audio book is about shadow work written by a woman with intense amounts of un-dealt-with shadow herself. She is very blame-oriented; she points fingers and seems to loathe the people she claims to be helping. I fear she is growing *more* shadow in her listeners by creating fear and guilt with her scolding, angry tone, therefore doing more harm than good. These are not healthy, lasting, motivators for change.

    If you think of the Law Of Attraction, when Myss is telling her listeners they are selfish, ungrateful, or lazy, she is creating her own world where people keeping showing up as selfish, ungrateful, and lazy. When you don't treat people well, when you disrespect them, or are spiteful towards them, you are not calling their best self forward. So I wouldn't be surprised if she attracts resentful, angry, people to her life. When you treat people as love and light, you are encouraging them to rise to their best. People are inherently good and they deserve to be treated that way. Furthermore real change will happen when people feel appreciated for where they are currently at, i.e.- from an integral understanding of our innate humanness- and when they are motivated by Love, not fear. Until she realizes people aren't "misbehaving" but are doing the best they can in their current way of living, her message will be lost on most people and shadows will keep growing, including Myss'.

    If you are someone who wants to work on your shadow, I'd recommend Genpo Roshi/Big Mind, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, or Colin Tipping's "Radical Forgiveness." Great stuff. I am giving the rating 2 stars as I can see Myss put a lot of work into this, and despite the way she treats her audience, I think she means well.
