Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestselling author Myss (Sacred Contracts; Anatomy of the Spirit) began preparing for this book with two small acts of kindness involving simple assistance with literal baggage. They inspired her to muse, "What really takes place when you respond to someone in need?... the action itself, the lifting of a heavy piece of luggage... may be small. But the energy that is channeled through that action is the high-voltage current of grace." The multiplied strength of the aid she received prompted her to explore stories of like kind. Soliciting through her e-newsletter and Web site, she received over 1,200 responses in six days from people all over the world who had either given or provided some form of grace or assistance. After a cogent introduction, Myss organizes these stories around the "seven classic stages of spiritual development," expressed in the body's seven chakras or energy centers. She devotes chapters to gifts of the earth; financial and creative support; self-esteem; the heart; choice; wisdom; and the Spirit. Chapters conclude with questions to aid life assessment and prayers. The multicultural references throughout strengthen this universal, timely message that can be enjoyed and utilized by people everywhere.

Review

"Invisible Acts of Power is a wonderful account of the chakras (or energy centers) in the human bodymind and their special role in spiritual grace, gifts, and empowerment. A magical and moving handbook of your own deepest and divine powers."

-- Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything

"A brilliant, tender testament to the grace that comes from being a conduit for compassion and the divine."

-- Judith Orloff, M.D., author of Positive Energy and Intuitive Healing

By Janet Boyer HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 28, 2004
Format: Hardcover
"Being of service is not an option, it is a biological necessity. Every kind action we do for someone is a reanimation of our own life force--and the other person's...Each time you reach out to another person, whether you decide to do a small favor or because you feel compelled to help, you perform an invisible act of power that has profound healing effects for you both." --Carolin Myss in Invisible Acts Of Power - Personal Choices That Create Miracles

Caroline Myss, pioneer of energy medicine, has written a brand new book that may forever change how you see yourself in the world.

Invisible Acts of Power - Personal Choices That Create Miracles demonstrates how conscious acts of kindness, generosity, and service create meaning, hope, and even health for both the giver and the receiver. Myss contends that all thoughts and interactions are an exchange of power, and maps how this energy manifests itself through each of the 7 chakras. Within the 7 stages of generosity, Myss makes the case that the ability to be generous and the ability to be intuitive are inextricably linked. She breaks new ground in exploring why many people are afraid to be generous--and the ramifcations of "holding back" or ignoring intuitive guidance.

Using both personal stories and those culled from over 1,200 letters that were sent to her website, Myss shares electrifying and heart-warming examples of how kindness towards others actually increases our own power and health--and teaches how we can move from visible to invisible acts of power.

This book was born out of an invitation that Caroline Myss made to visitors to her website. The task was simple: write about your experiences with grace and life changing acts of service. Within six days she had received 1,200 emails in response! She then took these responses and wove many of them into this beautiful, remarkable book that I consider a manual for, as she refers to it, life in "earth school."

The most amazing part of the book for me was how Ms. Myss was able to take the many and varied responses and associate each one with one of the seven chakras. For example, chakra one is our connection to our roots, the physical world, and family. Acts of service associated with this chakra would include giving someone shelter for the night, or cooking a meal for a friend. Chakra four represents love--both of ourselves and of others. Acts of service that are born from this chakra would include forgiveness, as well as acts of unselfish kindness (which could be as simple as holding the door open for someone or smiling at a stranger).

Each chakra has its own chapter, and each chapter is filled with numerous wonderful stories that illustrate the essence of that chakra. Woven in with the stories are beautiful descriptions of spiritual concepts such as grace, intuition, and service.

I have been a student of spirituality and mysticism for more than 25 years and I have read countless books over that time. This is one of the most life changing I have ever read. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Thank you, Caroline Myss, for sharing your wisdom with us. Your writing of this book was a tremendous act of service.

Invisible Acts of Power is the gathering of an amazing journey into the lives of many who were affected, at some level, by the kindness of others. The stories are incredible and warm, they inspired my own thoughts of gratitude and how is it that i can participate in giving back. I looked at what motivates me to serve.

The fact that Caroline connects each type of giving with an energy center or chakra brings sacredness to these acts of power, the reader will begin to experience what it is to remain in the background and to give with out an agenda or thoughts of recognition. Finally the beautiful essays, prayers and thoughts woven between each story serve to teach-inspire and up lift. If ever there was a book to soften and help us move through those things that are so challenging in this world--it is Invisible Acts of Power, truly a must read for everyone--------Julie Flaherty

Caroline Myss presents beautiful stories of gratitude and giving to explain how meaningful kindness can be in the life of those in need. She not only addresses financial aspects of giving, but the invisible aspects where you can encourage friends, family and even strangers you only meet once to reach for the best they can be in this lifetime.

Why do some people practice generosity as a "spiritual practice?"
What is the most appreciated type of generosity?
How can you break through fears to awaken your own generosity?
What do people regret the most?
Why do we fear giving to those less fortunate than ourselves?
How can you build someone's self-esteem by giving invisible gifts from the heart?
Why is listening an act of generosity?

Caroline Myss has profound insight into life's many complexities and in Invisible Acts of Power she explores the positive results of emotional, creative, supportive and risk generosity. She now builds additional layers on our understanding of the charkas, although you can enjoy this CD set without knowing detailed information about energetic fields (the interactive charka model at her myss site is very helpful).

What is most interesting about the ideas is how they were inspired by real-life situations and letters sent in by people connected to her website through her newsletter. This opens up a world of experience in which giving takes on practical dimensions.
