Many of us wear a mask that covers not our faces but our souls, hiding the authenticity we yearn to express. But how do we remove these masks and step into our full creative power? On Your Creative Soul, Caroline Myss and Sandra Joseph, the author and actress best known for her role as Christine in Broadway's The Phantom of the Opera, investigate the profound relationship between our spirituality and our creative lives - and why it's essential for each of us to honor the impulses of the soul. Caroline begins by offering her understanding of the inherent connection between spirituality and creativity and why every breath we take is itself an act of creation. She illuminates the many levels of creative expression beyond artistic pursuits and illustrates the energetic anatomy of the creative process chakra by chakra. Sandra and Caroline discuss the most common blocks to creativity, then Sandra points the way toward six "doorways" to creativity, as together they explore:
What are you longing to create right now? What inner gifts are waiting to be revealed? Your Creative Soul is an inspirational guide for giving voice to your deepest truths. Features five beautiful songs performed by Sandra Joseph.

I found this audiobook really disjointed. I'm a big fan of Carolyn Myss and I find her other works really powerful and insightful. Unfortunately in this one, I found her sections really angry and harsh. She spends a lot of time saying how we revel in our wounds instead of getting ourselves to do serious work. Most of the time I find her style to be very honest and straight up, but this time I found several of her sections incredibly uncompassionate. Sandra Joseph's sections were much lighter. They focused more on her personal journey, which was interesting. I was a little annoyed that she sang a broadway song after each of her sections. It just felt really out of place to me. I think either of the authors could have made a fine audiobook about this subject on their own. The truth is they don't really seem to go together and the whole book just felt like it was jumping back and forth without any connectivity.
A standard good work by Carolyn Myss. She has moments where she kind of whips her audience, which I don't care for, but she is powerful. Her co-presenter is a wonderful addition, and a warm heart. Loved the time spent.
Uplifting, motivating, confidence building. Carolyn Myss and Sandra Joseph present this material in a way that it feels like they are both right here, talking to me over tea.
Carolyn Myss is just relentlessly negative and angry. It's like there's some imaginary listener who has been too demanding or something - a section can start off very positively, and then the next thing there's her strident voice telling us what terrible people we are.
I would but a book by Sandra - she has some great things to say.
I've bought several of Carolyn's books, and with this one I've finally learned my lesson. Never again.
