Bert introduced me to Caroline Myss through a CD recording, which i can’t locate right now, but was probably “Sacred Contracts: Awakening your divine potential.” – of which there is a book also.
In this 2015, as i’ve been discovering death, i came across her again, whilst reading Dr Mike Godfrey, watching ‘I am’ and considering self-healing of the body.
I’ve watched about 20 minutes of the above “Why People Don’t Heal” where she introduces herself as a medical clairvoyant or medical intuitive with a background in publishing.
I love the part when she talks of knowing about her gift (was it in the 70s?) well before she was ‘ready’ to ‘use’ it in a professional sense. She said (back then) she was far from ‘New Age’. She smoked cigarettes and drank coffee (a lot) which didn’t seem to fit the profession of ‘healer’. In that admission i appreciated her humanity, comedy, the contradiction, and the patience (non-grasping) with herself.
I got up to the bit where she started working with an esteemed brain surgeon who was looking for a medical intuitive to aid him with his patients and his/their (whose?) diagnosis.
They found each other at a conference.
C. Norman Shealy (Harvard trained neurosurgeon) and Caroline Myss.I’m currently reading Dr Mike Godfrey’s “What’s the matter?” and learning about different forms of healing. It is eye, heart and concept opening. What a treasure, a gift of a book. I encourage anyone in the ‘art of healing’, ‘art of medicine’, ‘art of care’, ‘art of health’, ‘art of body’, ‘art of mind’ to read it. He is a scientist and relates to spiritual phenomena as science, with anecdotal and ‘physics’ based evidence.timthumbI leave you with some of Caroline Myss’ invitations of thought (photo taken from Findhorn’s ‘Love, Magic and Miracles Conference in 2012)…I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things—the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos—are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.”
― Caroline Myss”When we harbor negative emotions toward others or toward ourselves,or when we intentionally create pain for others,

we poison our own physical and spiritual systems.

By far the strongest poison to the human spirit

is the inability to forgive oneself or another person.

It disables a person’s emotional resources.

The challenge is to refine our capacity to love others as well as ourselves

and to develop the power of forgiveness. ”

― Caroline Myss

 

“You are afraid of your own empowerment

as much as those around you are of you becoming empowered.”

― Caroline Myss

 

“Always go with the choice that scares you the most,

because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you. ”

― Caroline Myss

 

“Contain your experience with the divine

so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you.

Be silent.

Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion

that regularly seduce us in the outside world.

Silence also helps you avoid distraction.

It helps focus the busy mind –

the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something,

the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged

lest it become introspective and allow the soul’s voice to override its own.

The silence I am describing is a silence that you use

to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul.

This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment.

You carry this silence within you, even when you are with others.

It allows you to hold your center amid the chaos of your life;

it keeps you clear so that you do not do or say things you will regret

or make decisions out of fear. ”

Caroline Myss

 

“The forgiving heart is capable of anything.

I believe that deeply.

And that’s where in terms of becoming an empowered individual….

when you get to the point where you realize you can look at someone and say

“I love myself enough –

not in a schmaltzy garbage sense, Hallmark stuff,

I’m talking respect myself –

I respect my life-force enough to no longer waste it.”

– Caroline Myss

 

The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time.

And that’s why when one has become a forgiving person,

and has managed to let go of the past,

what they’ve really done is they’ve shifted their relationship with time.

– Caroline Myss

 

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.

The challenge is to silence the mind.”

– Caroline Myss

PS it seems my formatting is playing magic with me. If anybody knows how to fix this…I know i could research it but I’d rather keep writing and Saturday-ing.
