Publisher's Summary

What if you could live your life in partnership with divinity, using your intuition as your guide? According to Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., and Caroline Myss - such a life is possible.

In fact, it is the life that mystics have chosen throughout history, and only one thing is required: the willingness to completely surrender to divine instruction. Now Caroline Myss and Dr. Estes - two of the country's leading intuitives and bestselling authors - are together for the first time on audio with Intuition and the Mystical Life.

Intuition and the Mystical Life

I was reluctant to get the book due to the somewhat negative reviews, but my passion to hear the two ladies won - and I regret NOT buying the book earlier- they are awesome, they have beautiful poetry going back and forth between them while talking about women's intuition. I love this material, already listened to it three times. I recommend it. And I think the presentation transcends nationality and religion, as it speaks to the soul as well as the mind.

Juxtapositions

It was interesting to me that I began to compare the responses and dialogue between Myss and Estes. I couldn’t resonate with Carolyn Myss. The more I listened, the more I felt this way. She seemed opinionated and her tone felt like she was scolding and judging women. Clarissa Pinkola Estes was such a big contrast to her. Her stories and narrative seemed to be more empowering of women. Myss talked about ego and intuition in ways that made me feel ego was bad and that intuition was better served in silence and invisibility. Women’s voices have been shut down for eons and they have been invisible in so many ways. There is nothing wrong if they want to be seen and heard and for the world to know aloud that a woman follows her intuition,. This is not egotistical. I give Estes five stars and Myss, just one.

Powerful Duo!

Clarissa Pinkola-Estes has long been my favorite guide to archetypes, how they may apply in our life stories, and Jungian Psychology. She & Caroline Myss have just filled in questions I've had in full Technicolor. This was an excerpt from a larger work on balancing chakras that I am looking forward to finding and listening to. I am now looking forward to listening to more of Caroline's works too.

Two Amazing Women

This book has become my FAVORITE of ALL time!! Heartwarming, inspirational, educational, and so full of knowledge. This book has helped me to understand several things about myself, that I have struggled with, and even fought with myself about, denied myself of, and at times have beaten myself up about. I no longer have to search for answers that I have been wanting and needing to find my entire life.. Thank you both for the warmth that exudes from your bodies and minds that it seems so effortless, your voices are both so soothing and melt words, like butter used to make the bread, in the final story..

Intuition or Judgement?

Judgement is rampant through this book. Didn't learn much about intuition but learned so much about all the "shoulda" around developing intuition!

A little "precious" for my taste.

Ivory Tower Mysticism?

I like both Myss, and Pinkola-Estes; however togther.. not so much.
I felt like I was listening in on a mutual admiration love fest, and mysticism was secondary. I expected this book to have more substance, and relevence to the average person but it came across as cliquish.

"Intuition for well off women who were raised by perfect parents"

Both women went to Catholic school, neither are First Nations, and because *they* were not abused, are completely dismissive of the atrocities that occured within the auspices of
the Catholic Church.
I expected more from them.

Not as excited about this as I thought I would be

Any additional comments?

I have a fundamental issue with what Caroline Myss says regarding therapy. She claims that women go to therapy to unravel deep seeded psychological issues in order to develop intuition, but really intuition comes from self-esteem. I can't speak for everyone, but myself and many other women I know go to therapy to unravel the deep seeded issues that keep us from loving ourselves and keep us from having higher self esteem. So, I find her comments about intuition not being found in therapy quite erroneous.

Couldn’t finish it

It is traumatizing listening to Myss. She sounds like she is scolding someone the whole time, I couldn’t stand. I read other reviews making the same complain but I wanted to hear for myself, however, I think I couldn’t get past 30min into the audiobook before I had to stop. It is just ridiculous. Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes as always kept her style, but Myss talks most of the first part .

a beautiful, enrichening sharing between 2 of the most insightful & nurturing wise women of our times

this shared interview between Caroline & Clarissa of how they discovered & tap into their uniquely given ways of walking through & in different worlds is alive & full of wisdom. The wonderful blend of Caroline's incisive navigation & the melody of Clarissa's voice like a cradling sea, takes the listener to that other shore they've wanted to reach. I particularly enjoyed almost eavesdropping on how the 2 came to some incredible new self-realzations, & stories shared about special times with grandmothers & nuns. Their words spoke to me directly in the place I now find myself...such is its special quality & that or the 2 women I don't think I need to recommend it as this will find those who need to listen to it by itself!

Fascinating conversation for now and the future

I loved this conversation between two wise women of our age. I noticed it exactly when I needed to take on board its messages. The combination of spiritual teachings, Clarissa's injection of story metaphors, and Carolyn's parallels combined to make a moving cocktail from which each individual listener will take their own lessons. I will listen to this again and again, and gain new insights from it each time. Definitely worth investing in!

Enrichment for the mind and soul.

A conversation between two wise women that encourages you to take time to look at your own relationship to your intuition. Uplifting and empowering.

thank you Clarissa and Caroline to share so openly

I love how you are two different women yet with the same passion. One has the gift of storytelling and the other the gift of putting the facts on the table. Great combo.

Utterly superb until...religion!

Having read and listened to so much of Ms Esteves works, I was thoroughly enjoying and deeply engrossed in this reading until religion reared up into both orators words. In this ever evolving and growing world the ways and views of organised religions has to be reigned in. The lack of knowing how to utter a prayer is not the ‘sin’ the ‘sin’ is firmly believing a ‘parent’ has been neglectful by not teaching their child a prayer or how to pray. If the second part of this reading had not been so laced with ‘god’ and religion I would have enjoyed this reading and embraced far more than I did. Her shock at the, not knowing how to pray, is nothing compared to my shock that the lack of prayer would shock her.
