Defy Gravity by Caroline Myss

I will be upfront with you. I LOVE Caroline Myss. I believe just about every word she utters. I first read her book, “Anatomy of the Spirit”, during a difficult time, years ago, and it helped. I read it a few times over. I will read it again.

I read her latest book, “Defy Gravity”, a few weeks ago…..

Caroline Myss in conversation with a workshop participant

In this book, Caroline writes that people cannot heal through reason or emotions, only through the soul. Grace (which is accessed through prayer) is the conduit for that healing.

Unfortunately, we are locked in our control-driven ego, which is terrified of how our life would change, how justice would not be served, should we enter a state of grace.

How do we begin to get from here to there? Let go of fear and forgive (ie. surrender). And that is also done through the power of prayer and the grace that it brings.

A few of Caroline’s thoughts:

On prayer:

“The transformative link that drew a person “out of the mind” and into an altered state of consciousness, however slight and however brief, [is] prayer.”

On forgiveness:

“Forgiveness is your release from the hell of wanting to know what cannot be known and from wanting to see others suffer because they have hurt you.”

On releasing fear:

“If you were to shed the fears that burden you ego, what would remain would be a clear intuitive soul that would effortlessly respond to others.”

On why things happen as they do:

“People’s actions are driven by forces that have nothing to do with you, even though you might get harmed if you stand in their way. Or you might hurt those who stand in your way – even if you care deeply for them.”

If you love Caroline too or you’re simply curious, you’re in luck. She is hosting a free, live, online event about sacred contracts….the contracts we signed before our incarnation concerning  who we signed up to be, who we signed up to meet, and what we signed up to experience. This event takes place on May 7, 7:30 -9:00 p.m..
